House Judiciary Committee Hears Testimony on Remote Commerce

On July 24, 2018, the U.S. House Judiciary Committee held a hearing to examine the recent Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair and its impact on consumers and small businesses. The question being debated – should Congress act? Eight witnesses testified as to their perspective on business impact and the wisdom of Congressional action. As you might imagine, opinions varied.

Congress has yet to take any action and it remains unclear whether this hearing represents an affirmative first step leading to a federal standard or just more discussion and debate. The Judiciary Committee has posted the hearing, along with information about all eight of the witnesses, which can be found here.
