Next step: Study Committee scheduled for Nov. 17

Legislation allowing wine sales in retail food store is taking another important step.

Sen. Bill Ketron (R-Murfreesboro) has scheduled a legislative subcommittee meeting to discuss wine in retail food stores, direct wine shipment, and other related topics. The meeting will take place Nov. 17 from 1-4 p.m. in Legislative Plaza Room 12.

Sen. Ketron sponsored the legislation in the last General Assembly session.

Obviously, we would love as many Red White & Food members as possible to attend the study meeting. At the same time, we don’t expect the committee to vote on any legislation. The meeting is an opportunity for legislators to hear from both sides and discuss the issues in depth.

The Tennessee General Assembly broadcasts all meetings online. We’ll post the link for the video streaming as soon as it’s available.
