Reviewed Date: 07/27/2021
Summary:
Any city that wishes to ensure that neither a distillery nor high alcohol content beer manufacturer operates within its jurisdiction should take immediate steps to adopt a resolution removing the city from the application of TCA 57-2-103(d). Failure to complete this action prior to the end of the 45-day grace period could result in your city being precluded from exercising its ability to opt out of the law. This 45-day grace period began to toll upon the effective date of the bill, July 1st, making August 15th the final day to remove your city from application.
