On introduction of the No Regulation Without Representation Act of 2017, by Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA)

HR 2887 – No Regulation Without Representation Act of 2017

“Consumers and online retailers around the country are under assault by more than a dozen states seeking to adopt onerous and unworkable sales tax collection regimes, but Rep. Sensenbrenner’s commonsense bill would put a stop to the chaos,”

“Whether it’s invading consumer privacy through tattletale reporting laws or establishing dubious ‘economic nexus’ policies that flout established Supreme Court precedent, this state sales tax feeding frenzy must be stopped in order to preserve consumer choice and competition.”

“States should not be allowed to regulate businesses beyond their borders, whether it is imposing sales tax obligations, labeling, or other regulatory restrictions and mandates on business that are not located within their borders.    Congress must step in to stop this madness. We thank Rep. Sensenbrenner for his leadership on this issue, and we urge the full House to quickly take up this measure to provide small and mid-sized retailers protection from unlawful state policies that threaten to harm consumers, businesses and our national economy.”
