The Tennessee Senate this week voted to send wine-in-grocery stores legislation to Gov. Bill Haslam for signature, capping an often difficult seven-year debate, the Tennessean reports. Haslam has said he plans to approve the bill, but before wine will start appearing in stores, voters in cities and counties that already have liquor stores or bars must approve the change in separate referendums. To appear on the ballot, supporters will have to gather signatures equal to 10 percent of the voters in the most recent gubernatorial race.
