TN lawmakers again propose bill allowing liquor, wine sales on Sunday

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A Tennessee lawmaker is still fighting to allow liquor and wine purchases on Sundays.

State Rep. Gerald McCormick (R-Chattanooga) proposed a bill that would allow package stores to sell liquor and allow grocery stores to sell wine during hours when beer is sold, which would include Sundays.

This isn't the first time the push has been made.

In 2016, Tennessee began allowing stores to sell wine. That law denied wine sales on Sundays and certain holidays.

Last year, Sen. Bill Ketron (R-Murfreesboro) introduced a bill that would allow liquor sales on Sundays--it did not pass.

State Rep. Bob Ramsey (R-Blount County) is also sponsoring the bill, which has yet to be voted on.
