The City of Whitehouse and Smith County Precinct 1 are the latest East Texas locations to see a move to legalize the sale of beer and wine for off-premise consumption.

The Whitehouse Committee for economic growth is in the middle of a campaign to get enough  signatures on two petitions that would allow the sale of beer and wine.

A Total of at least 2,570 signatures are needed to place the propositions on the May ballots allowing the sale of beer and wine.

A similar proposition failed in November 2010.
