Sponsor Not Giving Up On Wine Bill
Legislation to allow wine to be sold in Tennessee supermarkets and convenience stores has hit another road block. Members of the Senate Finance Committee voted 5-5 on Tuesday to keep the measure from advancing. The vote came after House leaders said they didn't want to reconsider the companion bill that earlier failed by a single vote. Republican Senate sponsor Bill Ketron of Murfreesboro has said he wants to get the bill out of the committee in case the situation changes in the House. Both Republican and Democratic Senate members of the Republican-sponsored bill said they didn't see a need for it to advance if the House doesn't plan to bring it up again. Ketron told reporters after the hearing that he's not giving up on the bill and is checking to see if the committee can reconsider its action. (bg)
