Not sure if posted already, still reading thru it:

"Senator Schumer and Reps. Anthony Weiner and Gregory Meeks are co-sponsoring federal legislation that could undercut taxes New York State imposed this year on banks and online retailers, such as Amazon.com, that have customers in New York but no offices here. All three lawmakers are Democrats, as is Mr. Paterson."
