Heidi Heitkamp

The Senate has reintroduced a bipartisan bill aimed at making it easier for states to collect sales taxes on online purchases. The legislation, known as the Marketplace Fairness Act, passed the Senate in 2013, but was stalled in the House. Several of the bill's backers co-sponsored the latest iteration: Senators Dick Durbin, D-Ill., Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D.
