NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The plan to put wine on supermarket shelves has taken a big step forward. After passing the State Senate the bill is set to be voted on by lawmakers in the House. The proposal would allow governments at the local level to vote on whether or not to allow the wine to be sold in their super markets. The vote on wine sales could come as early as November.
Last year Representative Matthew Hill is credited will killing the bill, but this year he has given his support to it saying, "I did vote for it on the local government committee this week to get it to the finance committee and did that because last year of course everybody knows that I voted no, the reason I voted no was because I felt like there needed to be more debate and discussion"
