The bill to overhaul the current system that prevents shoppers from buying wine alongside groceries faces votes in both House and Senate committees this week. As little as a single vote could decide the bill's fate after months of lobbying.
Republican Sen. Ken Yager of Harriman says the vote could fall either way in his Senate State and Local Government Committee. It meets Monday.
House Majority Leader Gerald McCormick of Chattanooga said he's uncertain how the House Local Government Committee will vote when the measure comes up Tuesday, but chances of passage are more favorable than they have been before.
