Marketplace Fairness Act Press Conference

Senators Durbin, Enzi, Alexander and Heitkamp join small business owners at news conference to urge passage of the Marketplace Fairness Act

U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., joined Sens. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Heidi Heitkamp, D-ND, at a news conference on April 23 to discuss and urge the passage of the Marketplace Fairness Act.

The Marketplace Fairness Act would close the online sales tax loophole that harms small businesses, bring sales tax laws up-to-date and level the playing field so all businesses can compete fairly. Last month, the U.S. Senate overwhelmingly endorsed the legislation in a non-binding budget amendment by a vote of 75-24.
