    A new White House petition supporting the Tesla Motors business model was initiated on Thursday. I signed today as #10.

    Link: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/allow-tesla-motors-sell-their-innovative-vehicles-directly-consumer-every-state/WkkLSWbr

    The one that I initiated on February 8[SUP]th[/SUP] failed for receiving less than 900 signatures while 100,000 were required within 30 days. Mine avoided specific mention of Tesla Motors, which I feared might have caused the administration to ignore it. The new one does focus on Tesla, but I feel is better written than the one that met the signature goal over eight months ago and has been sitting unacknowledged by the White House.

    The new petition requires 150 signatures before the White House will display it on the open petitions page. I invite you to join me in signing.

    Here’s the link to the petition that already reached its goal, but to which you can still sign: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/allow-tesla-motors-sell-directly-consumers-all-50-states/bFN7NHQR

    And here’s one initiated on Tuesday that is more New Jersey oriented: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/inform-new-jersey-markets-should-be-free-tesla-motors-and-everyone/ptHTHYMP

    That's great, Jack. When notifying others be sure to post the full URL links. This forum abbreviates them and pasted copies will not work.

    Unless people know about these ahead of time it makes it hard to reach the mark. I think prearranging a tweet from Tesla/FB post...etc and organizing people ahead of a 'launch date' might be the way to go. Otherwise the first two weeks is all about getting exposure and there isn't enough time unless Tesla or Elon Musk gets attention for it. Signed it anyway but they still haven't answered the first one.
