Political Payback: Why TNGA Rep. Matthew Hill Killed the 2013 "Wine in Grocery Stores" Bill



The video backstory of why TNGA Rep. Jon Lundberg's HB0610 "Wine in Grocery Stores" bill was killed by one vote on March 12, 2013 within Chairman Rep. Matthew Hill's own Tennessee House Local Government Committee:

Tennessee General Assembly (TNGA) House Rep. Micah Van Huss (R, Jonesborugh) on March 7, 2013 presenting his HB0589 legislation seeking to somehow prevent United Nations observers from monitoring Tennessee elections before the TNGA House Calendar and Rules Committee chaired by Rep. Bill Dunn (R, Knoxville).

Rep. Matthew Hill (R- Jonesborough; chairman of the full TNGA House Local Government Committee) voted yes for HB0610 (a TNGA bill popularly referred to as the Tennessee "Wine in Grocery Stores" Bill) on March 6, 2013 --- just one day before Rep. Jon Lundberg (R, Bristol) would be successful in routing HB0589 by Rep. Micah Van Huss back into Rep. Lundberg's own Civil Justice Subcommittee where Van Huss' anti-United Nations bill fail would later fail on constitutional grounds on March 26, 2013.

Chairman Matthew Hill killed the HB0610 on March 12, 2013 with his own vote after Lundberg's Tennessee Wine in Grocery Stores bill was presented as the last item of the agenda before Rep. Hill's Local Government Committee. HB0610 failed with a widely unexpected 7-8 vote.

Rep. Lundberg was denied the "common courtesy" and long-standing Tennessee General Assembly practice of rolling HB0610 forward on Chairman Matthew Hill's committee calendar for one week.

The Van Huss HB0589 anti-United Nations legislation as imagined by both Reps. Micah Van Huss and Matthew Hill somehow prohibit representatives of the United Nations from monitoring Tennessee elections.

Freshman legislator Rep. Van Huss is a long-time friend and legislative ward of Rep. Matthew Hill.

You may want to subscribe to this YouTube channel as this video description will be later amended to include hyperlinks to other YouTube videos that I will be posting related to both HB0610 (Wine in Grocery Stores) and HB0589 (an-United Nations election monitoring in Tennessee).
