After Midnight...

There may be no alcohol sales in Tennessee if Representative Curry Todd has his way:

If these proposals become law they could further restrict the ability of State, county, and municipal governments to raise revenue without having to further increase property taxes. Liquor taxation is a tax that is entirely voluntary, and has the potential to raise untold millions of dollars a year. While members like Rep. Tony Shipley are moving on legislation that could truly reduce the impact of drunk driving through real punitive action, this bill (which I am loathe to point out is being run in the Senate by my Senator who I voted for, and hope to support again) will have as much impact on alcohol-related crime as simply uttering the statement "alcohol-related crime is bad."
