TN House to vote on bill permitting alcohol sales at Memphis Zoo

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Tennessee House of Representatives is set to vote on a bill that would allow the Memphis Zoo to sell alcohol Wednesday.

The House resumed their 11 a.m. meeting at 5 p.m.

Senator Brian Kelsey sponsored the bill and hopes revenue from alcohol sales will help the zoo recover from losses after the COVID-19 shutdown.

The zoo says the money would go towards daily operations, exhibit upgrades and educational program expansions.
