CIO – Once again, Congress risks allowing an Internet access tax
Congress failed in 2003 to act in time to extend the access moratorium, but it did so retroactively, a scenario that is again possible, said Steve DelBianco, executive director of NetChoice, a trade association that represents ecommerce businesses.
“There is no doubt the Senate will pass a clean extension if given the opportunity,” said DeBianco.
If Congress doesn’t extend the moratorium, DeBianco said he’s aware of at least one state, Washington, that may act immediately to impose access taxes.
