When Does Cash on Delivery for Liquor Purchases from Tennessee Wholesalers Become Law?

06.28.17
Updated May 13, 2014.

Restaurant and bar owners from Memphis to Knoxville are talking about the new Tennessee requirement that liquor be paid for when purchased.  Previously, liquor had to be paid for within 10 days.

We blogged in detail about the new law here.

Folks have been asking when the new law will take effect.  Our official answer is we don't know.  We expected the bill to be signed into law by now.

In an odd quirk, the bill was just signed by the Speaker of the House on May 7.  The bill was sent to the Governor on May 13, 2014.

You can follow the progress of the bill here.

Reminds us of AC/DC:

Said you think you got some balls
But you're always out to lunch
It's all screwed up
 
The Governor has 10 days to either sign or veto the bill, excluding Sundays.  Although the state hospitality association has pushed for a veto by the Governor, we think a veto is unlikely.  Read more about the veto effort here.
