NASHVILLE (AP) - The state Senate has voted to move next month's sales tax holiday so it won't fall on Easter weekend.

The bill would make the new dates for the sales tax holiday April 25 through April 27. It currently is scheduled for March 21 to March 23.

The sales tax break applies to clothing, school supplies and computers.

The House Finance Committee was scheduled to take up the companion bill on Tuesday.
