Marketplace Fairness Act November 19, 2014
Michael Enzi, R-WY
"But the exemption already protects small businesses. Last year a Small Business Administration study determined that the small seller exemption included in the Marketplace Fairness Act would exempt 99.96 percent of all sellers from the bill’s requirements.

Richard Nugent, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to draw the collective attention of the House to an unfortunate case of federal over-regulation and the consequences to a small business in my district. In Ocala, Florida, we have a small family business that has produced and distributed snacks to schools across the country for more than three decades. Country Meats makes a pork-based snack that is common to student fundraisers and the proceeds of its sale in public schools over that time have netted more than $30 million in support of marching bands, athletic teams and academic clubs nation-wide."
