Wine in supermarkets bill passes Tenn. House committee


NASHVILLE (WATE) - Two wine in grocery stores bills took a step forward in the Tennessee General Assembly Tuesday, measures passing in the House finance ways and means committee.

One bill allows communities to hold referendums to allow wine sales in grocery stores.

The other lays out the rules for how it would work in terms of what liquor stores could sell and what grocery stores could sell.

The bill, introduced by Rep. Ryan Haynes, R-Knoxville, is similar to one that recently passed in the Senate, restricting grocery stores within 500 feet of a package store to sell wine.

The bill now moves on to the calendar rules committee. The bill passed the local government committee last week, the same committee that rejected it last year.
