Bright & Early: Why Not Wine Edition

Good morning, Nashville. The controversial issue of allowing wine to be sold in grocery stores is certainly not a new one, but lawmakers and advocates are taking a slightly different approach this year. The current bill moving through the legislature would give individual counties the opportunity to vote on the issue as early as August. As such, Metro Councilman Charlie Tygard is trying to make sure we’re prepared for the vote by introducing a council resolution that would add the wine vote to the ballot in the next election rather than going to the trouble of having a special election. We’re getting a little excited!
