Marketplace Fairness Act Compliance

Who supports the Marketplace Fairness Act?

The Marketplace Fairness Act enjoys bipartisan support.

In the 113th Congress, the MFA passed in the United States Senate by an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 69 to 27, but was not allowed to advance in the House of Representatives.

In the 114th Congress, 22 bipartisan Senate sponsors (7 Republicans, 14 Democrats, 1 Independant) have sponsored the Bill.

In the current 115th Congress, the Senate bill (Marketplace Fairness Act of 2017, S.976) has 27 bipartisan Senate sponsors (7 Republicans, 19 Democrats, 1 Independant) along with a companion resolution in the House of Representatives (Remote Transactions Parity Act of 2017, H.R.2193) has 50 bipartisan sponsors (24 Republicans, 26 Democrates).

Congress is responding to the the chorus of bipartisan - actually, non-partisan - supporters that also include 26 Governors (13 Republicans, 12 Democrats, 1 Independant), a large number of National Trade Associations (), State & Local Trade Associations (), and Businesses of all sizes ().

Altogether organizations are supportive of the legislation, while only are opposed. If you would like to be added to one of our lists, please let us know.
