Baucus objects to setting aside pending amendment to consider Collins amendment

The Senate has resumed consideration of S.743, Marketplace Fairness Act.

Senator Collins asked unanimous consent to set aside the pending amendment in order to call up Collins amendment #744, to provide a limitation on when States may first exercise the authority under this Act.

Senator Wyden reserved his right to object and then Senator Baucus objected to the request.

The managers of the bill will continue to work on an agreement to consider amendments to the bill. However, if no agreement can be reached we would proceed to the cloture vote 1 hour after the Senate convenes tomorrow.
