A proposal to reform Tennessee's beer tax laws is advancing in the state legislature.

Right now, Tennessee has the highest beer tax in the country because a decades-old law requires a 17% wholesale tax based on the price of beer.  The new proposal would switch it to a volume based calculation.

The bill passed committees in both the house and senate Tuesday.

The dates for the next committees to hear the bill have not yet been set.
