(OPEN):
THIS WEEK [THE WEEK OF JULY 1ST], AS AMAZON-DOT-COM BEGINS COLLECTING SALES-TAXES IN TEXAS, MANY SMALL-BUSINESS OWNERS ARE CHEERING--SAYING THAT THE RECENT AGREEMENT "LEVELS THE PLAYING-FIELD" BETWEEN OUT-OF-STATE, ONLINE BUSINESSES AND "MAIN STREET"-RETAILERS.  REX SOLOMON OWNS HOUSTON JEWELRY, IN HOUSTON...

(SOLOMON):
"
THANKS TO OUR LAWMAKERS, TEXAS IS TAKING THE LEAD TO MAKE SURE [THAT] 'AMAZON-DOT-COM' PLAYS BY THE SAME RULES AS 'MAIN STREET'-BUSINESSES--AND COLLECTS THE STATE'S SALES-TAX, LIKE WE ALWAYS HAVE.  NOW THAT A BIG STATE LIKE OURS HAS REACHED AN AGREEMENT TO LEVEL THE PLAYING-FIELD, OUR LEADERS IN CONGRESS SHOULD REALIZE [THAT] IT IS PAST TIME TO CLOSE THIS LOOPHOLE, ONCE AND FOR ALL.  WASHINGTON NEEDS TO STOP PICKING WINNERS AND LOSERS WITH THE TAX-CODE.  CONGRESS MUST PASS 'E-FAIRNESS'-LEGISLATION NOW--TO END THE UNFAIR COMPETITIVE-ADVANTAGE FOR ONLINE RETAILERS, THROUGHOUT THE NATION."
