Harwell Predicts Wine in Grocery Stores Will Pass

Speaker of the House Beth Harwell predicts that the bill to allow wine in grocery stores will pass in 2014. The bill to let supermarkets, pharmacies, convenience stores and other retailers with beer licenses place wine on their shelves — provided voters agree through local referendums — was sent to the Senate, but got tied up in a House committee during the 2013 legislative session by a single vote.
