Marketplace Fairness Act One Step Closer Thanks To Bipartisan Vote

WASHINGTON, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- National League of Cities (NLC) President Marie Lopez Rogers, mayor, Avondale, AZ responds to today's Senate cloture vote on the Marketplace Fairness Act:

"We are pleased the Senate today took another monumental step forward towards enacting the Marketplace Fairness Act.  The bipartisan support for this crucial bill will go a long way towards equal footing between Main Street and online retailers. 

"NLC recognizes and thanks all the Senators who voted for cloture on the bill.  We appreciate President Obama for coming out in favor of the bill. Their support is critical in giving local governments the tools they need to collect remote sales taxes.  The bipartisanship we see on the issue demonstrates the broad support for bill and consequently, for Main Street retailers. 

"The bill closes a loophole that online retailers exploit at a cost to local businesses.  We look forward to a final vote in a few days and continue to urge all Senators to support the legislation as introduced and make it law."

The National League of Cities is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities. NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans.
