Our partners at the Tennessean say Governor Bill Haslam will sign the wine in grocery stores bill next Thursday.

Both the House and Senate passed the bill within the last month.

Once the governor signs it, supporters say counties and cities will hold referendums this fall. Voters will get to decide whether to allow wine sales in grocery stores.
