Reid Seeks to Expedite Online Sales Tax Bill
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., is setting up online sales tax legislation for a possible vote on the Senate floor after the chamber completes work on gun legislation.
On Tuesday night, Mr. Reid began the process of moving an online sales tax bill to the Senate floor on an expedited basis, without going through the committee process. A Senate Democratic aide said the move makes the bill a candidate for a vote after gun legislation, although he cautioned that debate over gun control could drag out and delay an online sales tax vote until May. Another Senate aide said that no final decisions have been made.
