“The National Governors Association applauds Chairman Goodlatte for his focus on this critical state-federal issue and for making it a priority of the committee.

Marketplace Fairness is common-sense legislation that upholds the principles of federalism and levels the playing field between Main Street and e-street. It helps states, encourages competition and preserves Main Street jobs.

We are pleased by the release of the principles and praise the chairman’s efforts to move this legislation. We look forward to working with the committee to ensure this legislation moves through Congress this year.”
