While supporters are hoping MFA gets attached to a bigger, must-pass spending bill, opponents are optimistic it won’t be attached. “Adding controversial [measures] to an omnibus or CR makes them harder to pass, not easier,” NetChoice Executive Director Steve DelBianco tells MT. And though MFA advocates in the Senate are threatening to tie it to a widely supported ban on Internet taxes that expires on Dec. 11, that may not be the best leverage, since ITFA expired in 2001 for a little over a month. “A new Congress can retroactively renew the moratorium as a first order of business, significantly reducing the risk that state and local governments would add new taxes,” DelBianco said.
