Tennessee bill will no longer attempt to ban cold beer

Feb 20, 2024 | Political News

A Tennessee caption bill that would have banned the retail sale of refrigerated beer will no longer attempt that ban.

Rep. Ron Gant wrote that that “that was one of the many ideas discussed and considered by the many stakeholders across our state as potential item to be included in the legislation.”

Gant was involved in a fatal 2022 two-car head-on crash where the other vehicle crossed the center line and hit his vehicle, killing the other driving and leading Gant to get flown by helicopter to a Memphis hospital, the Tennessee Journal reported.

Several House sponsors withdrew from House Bill 2845 before it has been assigned or heard in committee.
