    So who will be making it today? I'm still battling a 103 degree fever and will not be able to make it.

    You could go and cough on the right people :). C'mon. Take one for the team!

    Seriously, sorry you're sick. Hope you're feeling better shortly. I do know a few fellow EV (non-Tesla) owners are going to make it. I hope some Tesla owners show up and represent!

    For anyone looking it's in the same room as yesterday. The schedule for tomorrow is posted out front instead of today.

    Fiver, are you there and can you summarize with quick posts here? It would be appreciated. Are you recording the session? Hope so.

    I'm a resident of Wellsville in Cache County, and my respresentative is Curt Web, [email protected], who responded to me yesterday by e-mail. He is on the committee handling this bill, and he responded yesterday by e-mail, writing this nice reply:
    ---
    This issue is a nagging one, in that (oversimplifying here) it is fair that the opportunity to sell vehicles in this state should be equal. To make that happen, all either sell online or all require franchisees. (Dealers) If manufacturers all sell online, dealers are casualties. Does that make any difference to Utah? That is the essence of the policy question.

    Plug In America also fired up their membership base to attend (thanks mpt) ... this isn't just about Tesla. If the Utah committee decided not to hear the bill yesterday thinking they'd have less people today, that might have backfired on them.

    Thanks for the update. I am going to try and drive up there after work tonight. My guess is that it will be over with by the time I get there.

    Bravo. Kim Coleman is reviewing FTC's opinion on this and supporting it.
    ---------
    And now she's supporting the limitations, I think ... -sigh-
    ---------
    Annnnnd ended with suggesting it might be best to just let it go to the courts. Which is what Tesla wants ...

    Now onto the Committee.

    Bill has been recommended to go to interim study.

    "We'll see where the court case ends up."

    Motion made and passed. No opposition. 12-0

    - - - Updated - - -

    btw THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR ALL THE LETTERS AND EMAILS. A couple of legislators mentioned how much communication they'd received. Great job.
