This has been in the working for a long, long time and is aimed to get the finances of states in order (something like 35 out of 50 states are in the reds). I know, it all sucks for us consumers but in all honesty, it isn't a fair playing field for brick and mortars that have to compete.

It was just a matter of time before this was going to happen.

Fine for the State coffers, but for smaller brick and mortars it won't make for much improvement. It is the convenience of home shopping, with inventory that most smaller businesses can't carry thats driving the internet shopping preference.
Even if they do carry the item, the price is always difficult to match. And a lot of people don't figure in the shipping cost, or ignore it completely in favor of having it delivered to their door.
