Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released the following statement after today’s Senate vote on and adoption of Senate Amendment 578 (S.Amdt.578) to Senate Concurrent Resolution 8 (S.Con.Res.8), which establishes a deficit-neutral reserve fund to ensure marketplace fairness by allowing states to enforce state and local use tax laws:

“Our Main Streets, our state and local governments, and our small businesses have suffered too long, and today’s vote in the Senate reaffirms that it is high time Congress addresses the current tax loophole that  has allowed the federal government to pick marketplace winners and losers.  The Marketplace Fairness Act is the bipartisan, bicameral, common-sense solution.  I am grateful for the Senate’s overwhelming show of support and hopeful that the House will soon take up the bill and level the playing field once and for all.”
