Tennessee Beer Tax Bill Headed to Haslam http://wkms.org/post/tennessee-beer-tax-bill-headed-haslam <p></p><p>A proposal to freeze Tennessee's beer tax is headed to Gov. Bill Haslam for his consideration.</p><p>The measure was approved in the House Wednesday. The Senate passed it earlier this week.</p><p>Tennessee's beer taxes outstrip any other state's because the bulk of the levy is based on price rather than volume.
