Liquor and wine legislation moves ahead
The Tennessee House has approved legislation permitting Sunday wine and liquor bottle sales after a debate in which opponents invoked God, and decried the decay in rural areas. The bill now is headed to the Senate. As passed, the piece of legislation authorizes grocery stores to sell wine on Sundays and allows package stores, to sell wine and liquor on Sundays. Liquor store operators would be allowed to open immediately on Sunday after the legislation passes the Senate, however grocery store could begin selling on Jan. 1 The bill also allows stores to sell wine and spirits on holidays, except for Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving. The bill sets hours and days when wine can be sold in grocery stores with the current hours for beer sales. Republican Rep. Andy Holt, quoted the Bible, saying "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy." But Democrat Rep. Johnny Shaw, a minister, reminded Holt that Old Testament writings have been superseded by the teachings of Jesus.
