Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session

Subject: A Resolution Urging Congress to Pass the Marketplace Fairness Act

In the near future, I plan to introduce a concurrent resolution urging Congress to pass the Marketplace Fairness Act during the 115th Congress. The Marketplace Fairness Act would establish a fair system for the collection of existing taxes owed to state and local governments, and passed the Senate in 2013 before being stalled in the Committee on the Judiciary in the United States House of Representatives.
Despite efforts made by the Department of Revenue to clarify the law regarding sales tax collection in 2011 and 2012, taxes owed on online sales are still not being properly remitted. By urging Congress to pass this act, we will hopefully be one step closer to collecting existing taxes to help solve ongoing budget constraints in our Commonwealth.
Please join me in sponsoring this important resolution.
