The Senate has passed a bill that could end tax-free shopping on the internet for many shoppers. The Senate voted 69-27 Monday to pass the bill, sending it to the House, where it faces opposition from some lawmakers who regard it as a tax increase. The bill would empower states to require businesses with more than $1 million in out of state sales to collect taxes for products they sell on the internet, in catalogs and through radio and TV ads. Under the legislation, the sales taxes would be sent to the state where a shopper lives. Under current law, states can only require retailers to collect sales taxes if the merchant has a physical presence in the state. As a result, many online sales are tax-free.

Monday night action saw the Panthers facing the Yellow Jackets of Kingston. In a game that saw few hits on either side, the defense became the deciding factor in the close game. Pitchers John Martin for Stone Memorial and Kingston's Ben Redden completed the game for their respective teams in the 2-0 final that saw the Yellow Jackets take the victory. Martin gave up two hits, five strikeouts, and no walks. Redden gave up six hits, eight strikeouts, and one walk. The game difference turned out to be in the error column with SMHS committing 5 at third and one at second while the Jacket only had one in their stats at short. Nathan Greene concluded his senior season as the heavy hitter with a double and two singles going 3-3. Jason Moldenhauer, Gabriel Caballero, and Clay Wilson each contributed singles in the contest.
