George Isaacson Testifies Before House Judiciary Committee


On July 25, 2017, Senior Partner George Isaacson gave testimony to the Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law of the House Judiciary Committee in Washington, DC. His subject was state regulatory overreach and its negative impact on American business and consumers. In his testimony, available here, Isaacson addressed the increasing problem of extra–territorial state regulatory overreach, the practice of states adopting rules that effectively impose legal obligations on businesses outside that state’s borders. Citing the spate of recent state efforts to require out–of–state retailers to file sensitive purchase history information with state tax departments, Isaacson noted their far–reaching negative consequences. Any small business selling goods over the Internet potentially subjects itself to the regulatory authority of over 12,000 state and local sales tax jurisdictions in the United States. Isaacson ended by calling on Congress “to protect the national economy from regulatory Balkanization and to reinforce the structure and integrity of our federal system of government.”
