Governor Bill Lee Proposing $100 Million, Two Week Sales Tax Holiday on Restaurants, Bars and Groceries

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee is proposing a $100 million, two-week sales tax holiday on restaurants, bars and groceries. Lawmakers have been presented a budget amendment to the Governor’s $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 plan drew scrutiny from the state’s top teacher advocacy group, which said now is the right time to include a much bigger investment in public schools. The spending items must still clear the Republican-controlled General Assembly.
