NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee Governor Bill Lee is proposing a $100 million, two-week sales tax holiday on restaurants, bars and groceries.
On Tuesday, the Republican’s finance team presented lawmakers a budget amendment to his $42 billion spending plan. The proposal was fueled by better-than-expected revenues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
When those sales tax holidays would occur has not yet been determined. The spending items must still clear the Republican-controlled General Assembly.
