The article about the continuing discussion at the legislature as to whether or not to charge Amazon state sales tax is telling. One would think that with all the talk about promoting our local economy, the state wouldn’t miss the chance to level the playing field with a company like Amazon. Apparently millions of dollars per year is going uncollected, and the article indicated that the Governor was moving away from it. Now isn’t the time to pass up millions, Governor, nor is it time to abandon local retail. The economy is troublesome and we can’t play favorites.
