While others are busy talking about being all about 'the big picture', we actually need to mobilize right now in Utah. If you think this only applies to Utah residents, please see #3, below. You can help. Here's the current situation as I know it: Tesla has an active case before the Utah Supreme Court where existing law should allow them to operate unrestricted. A well-meaning legislator (Rep. Kim Coleman) authored Utah HB 384, that made it possible to open up the existing location (where a lot of $ has already been invested) but it had unreasonable restrictions on Tesla’s sales model. Not content, Utah dealers, who have contributed to many local campaigns, have come in and are in the process of getting even more new restrictions added, such as no inventory stored anywhere in the state including the store location (which means even a demo car couldn't be sold). The goal is to KILL this bill, and let the Supreme Court of Utah decide on the pending case, not fix the bill. That is the message you will be sending: KILL BILL. There may be a hearing on this amended bill as soon as Wednesday @ 8am before the House Business Labor Committee (http://le.utah.gov/asp/interim/Commit.asp?Year=2016&Com=HSTBUS) Right now, I suggest three things: 1) Utah members – please contact your legislator TODAY directly either through email or phone call (particularly those with links to the Committee), and, 2) Plan to be there on Wednesday at 8am. Consider testifying. We can prep you for every 'Mom and Apple Pie' argument the dealers trot out. And wear your Tesla gear . 3) Everyone: Get on social media and publicize this. Legislators don't like the heat turned up when they are suppressing free-market for their constituents. Shine the light. I'm about to hit twitter. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL IN YOUR INTERACTIONS. Remember that dealerships have built long-standing relationships and friendships with various legislators. That's normal and to be expected. Don't be rude, just help them to understand what they don't understand. You are one of their constituents. They will listen to you. - - - Updated - - - Bonnie Norman on Twitter: Please retweet or tweet your own ... shine a light! Everyone hates having this backroom stuff out in the open.
