NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The House on Thursday voted to create a mechanism to allow Tennessee supermarkets and convenience stores to sell wine.

The chamber voted 71-15 to approve the years-long effort to grant authority to cities and counties that currently allow package stores or liquor-by-the-drink sales to hold referendums on whether to allow wine to be sold outside of liquor stores.
