There won't be wine sold in Tennessee supermarkets anytime soon.
State Sen. Bill Ketron, the Senate sponsor of a proposal to allow such sales, has formally withdrawn the bill from consideration for the year.
He noted the proposal had drawn strong support among consumers, but also had strong opposition. He plans to revive it in next year's legislative session.
Currently, Tennessee grocery stores are prohibited from selling wine and liquor stores are prohibited from selling beer.
