Texas Nexus law signed into law.

After vetoing a similar provision on May 31, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, on July 19, signed a law that says a retailer is doing business in the state if it has affiliates engaged in certain activities in Texas, such as maintaining a distribution center or a warehouse. According to reports in the general press, Amazon has been threatening to close a distribution center in the state if the law passes.

Meanwhile, on July 18, the California Attorney General gave the green light to an effort backed by Amazon to gather signatures to put to the state’s voters a repeal of the sales tax nexus law signed by Gov. Brown a few weeks ago.
