Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have begun considering the Marketplace Fairness Act, introduced by Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., last year, which would set new rules on how Internet companies are expected to collect sales taxes at the state at federal level.

Reports also indicate that a similar version of the bill was inserted into an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act.
