We are very excited to let you know that the United States Senate will have the opportunity to vote on the Marketplace Fairness Act next week! This is a huge moment, as this is the greatest action that this issue has ever seen in Congress. As an Arizona business owner, we need your help to ensure that Arizona Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake support the Marketplace Fairness Act in this important vote. The Act will be offered as an amendment to the budget resolution as a test vote - which is a procedural maneuver that allows leadership to assess the support for the issue. If 60+ votes can be garnered on the proposed amendment it will be added to another bill that is moving through the legislative process.
Here is what you can do: send an email to Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake urging their support. Here's how:
