Simmons to Discuss Marketplace Fairness Act
1/15/2014
WHAT: State Rep. Justin Simmons (R-Lehigh/Northampton) will join small business owners from the Lehigh Valley in a roundtable discussion of the federal Marketplace Fairness Act hosted by the Pennsylvania Alliance for Main Street Fairness (PA AMSF). Simmons is the sponsor of House Resolution 571, which calls on Congress to pass the act. The federal legislation would establish a nationwide standard for the collection of sales taxes on purchases from out-of-state online retailers who are currently able to escape paying the levy, putting local retailers at a disadvantage.

WHO: Simmons; Dan Hayward, PA AMSF spokesman; Mike Woodland, Dan’s Camera City co-owner; and other small business owners.

WHEN: Thursday, Jan. 16, 11 a.m.

WHERE: Dan’s Camera City, 1439 W. Fairmont St., Allentown
