Johnson urges the Texas legislature, following the Supreme Court's Wayfair decision, to make internet sales into Texas subject to Texas sales tax, without adopting a multi-state uniform sales tax or otherwise modifying its sales tax. Equity between the states requires that Texas not impose higher tax burdens on out-of-state Americans than it imposes on its own residents, but does not require exemption or other favoritism for out-of-state vendors.
