WASHINGTON — Retailers’ efforts to close the Internet sales tax loophole just found new life on Capitol Hill.
A group of senators, led by Sens. Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) and Mike Enzi (R., Wyoming), have introduced legislation that combined their own bill enabling states to collect sales taxes from out-of-state online sellers with a House-passed bill extending a permanent ban on states taxing Internet access. The new combined legislation is designed to equalize the ground rules for brick-and-mortar retailers.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
