Along with the start of a new year, new laws in Tennessee will go in to effect beginning Jan. 1, 2019. Along with grocery stores being able to sell wine on Sundays between the hours of 10 AM-11 PM, other new laws will include prohibiting local and state governments from adopting “sanctuary city” policies. A new law requires the Tennessee Department of Health to establish and maintain a public toll-free telephone line and a web-based hotline for citizens to report potential opioid abuse. Another new law requires public schools and public charter schools used as polling places for regular November election to be closed for instruction on election day. Also, a new federal law will require hospitals to post a master list online for how much the facility charges for a service. The federal law is being brought out as a measure to improve competition and help educate consumers. Hospitals will be required to update their price lists at least once a year.
