However, the congressman has nearly a year left on Capitol Hill, a period of time that won’t go to waste, Steve DelBianco, president and CEO of NetChoice, a Washington-based internet commerce trade association, told Bloomberg Tax.
“There is still plenty of time for Goodlatte to cement his legacy as a thoughtful and principled leader, and I expect he will be central to the internet tax debate right through his last day in Congress,” DelBianco said, adding that “court consideration of Quill will remind everyone that the Constitution gives Congress the power to regulate interstate commerce.”
DelBianco noted that due to GOP self-imposed term limits, Goodlatte would’ve relinquished his chairmanship at the close of the 115th Congress anyway.
