In 2016, Tennesseans were finally allowed to purchase wine and liquor on Saturdays. In January of 2018, a new bill allowed for wine and liquor to be picked up on Sundays, as well as on Labor Day, the Fourth of July and New Year's Day.

And now, state Rep. Glen Casada has moved to remove restrictions on alcohol sales even further by sponsoring a bill that will allow for the sale of wine and liquor on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Known as House Bill 371, the legislation was filed for introduction in the state House of Representatives on Jan. 21, with state Sen. Jon Lundberg (R - Bristol) sponsoring a state Senate version.

Having just recently been introduced, the bill is not yet scheduled for any committees or votes. Click here to read the bill in its entirety.

That would be Awesome and very adult like since most stores either check ID's or scan to make sure one's licenses is valid. I do understand the importance of these selected holiday' but then one must be given an opportunity to make an adult decision on weather or not to purchase. I'm 59 years old and should have the opportunity to make this choice. I hope this passes as ALL Tennesseans deserve the right to make this decision.
