H. RES. 1570

    Supporting the preservation of internet entrepreneurs and small 



                             July 29, 2010

 Mr. Hodes (for himself, Mrs. Capito, Mr. Pitts, Mr. Schrader, and Mr. 
 Daniel E. Lungren of California) submitted the following resolution; 
         which was referred to the Committee on Ways and Means



    Supporting the preservation of internet entrepreneurs and small 

Whereas the United States enjoys a strong online retail market, which for the 
        past decade has provided consumers in the United States the opportunity 
        to purchase quality products and services at competitive prices;
Whereas the open online marketplace has enabled a large number of small 
        retailers and entrepreneurs across the United States to establish their 
        businesses on various e-commerce platforms and therefore create jobs, 
        increase consumer choice, create competition in the retail industry, and 
        provide quality goods and services at reasonable and often discounted 
Whereas any Federal legislation that would upset this open and fair environment 
        and impose new onerous and burdensome tax collecting schemes on hundreds 
        of thousands of small online retailers would not only adversely impact 
        thousands of jobs and reduce consumer choice, but would also effectively 
        put an end to the robust e-commerce marketplace that consumers in the 
        United States currently enjoy; and
Whereas at a time when national unemployment numbers are high and small 
        businesses across the country are shutting their doors, Federal policy 
        should promote and encourage the growth of small online entrepreneurs 
        and recognize the benefits they provide to consumers across the United 
        States: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that 
Congress should not impose any new burdensome or unfair tax collecting 
requirements on small online businesses, which would ultimately hurt 
the economy and consumers in the United States.
