    Agreed! The petitions that led the other Tech companies to depart should be brought to bear against this backslider.

    Climate change pariah organizations need to be named as such and publicly shamed if we are going to make progress against the climate denier disinformation / lobbying / campaign contribution juggernaut!

    Yes it does.
    1) Large Internet sales companies lobbying to avoid sales tax collection makes me sick. They know full well that a national sales tax system is not in any way a technological challenge. It would also be more efficient than individuals having to file. They simply want to profit from the tax dodging.
    2) ALEC does a lot of damaging lobbying for other stuff and joining them is lending credibility.
