The bill to overhaul the current system that prevents shoppers from buying wine alongside groceries faces votes in both House and Senate committees this week. As little as a single vote could decide the bill's fate after months of lobbying.
Republican Sen. Ken Yager of Harriman says the vote could fall either way in his Senate State and Local Government Committee. It meets Monday.
House Majority Leader Gerald McCormick of Chattanooga said he's uncertain how the House Local Government Committee will vote when the measure comes up Tuesday, but chances of passage are more favorable than they have been before.

TBI: Women more likely family violence victims
June 20, 2013 08:10 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A new study of domestic violence in Tennessee last year found women were nearly two times more likely to be victimized than men and children were the victims in 16 percent of all family violence cases.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation put out a report this week analyzing crime statistics from law enforcement agencies across the state. Their findings show that nearly 15 percent of all crimes reported were domestic in nature.
The study looked at the relationships between victims and offenders as well as the influence of drugs and alcohol on family violence. The study found that more than 17 percent of family violence involves drugs or alcohol, with alcohol being the most common.
