Anyone here in Senate district 10 (Sen. Burton)? This includes much of Ft. Worth, Arlington, Colleyville, Southlake, and Bedford. I saw that Sen. Burton, who is in her first term in the senate, has introduced SB 441 which would end the Blue Laws for auto sales. The Blue Laws, for those under 50 or otherwise don't know, were laws that prohibited stores from opening on Sunday. When they were repealed in the auto dealer cartel got themselves exempted from the repeal in most states so they didn't have to compete with each other by opening on Sunday. In Texas it's written that auto dealers can't be open both Saturday and Sunday, and in practice it means almost all are closed on Sundays. This bill doesn't have a snowball's chance in h... of passing, it doesn't even have a companion bill in the House, but it shows she is willing to poke the bear (the TADA). I was told by someone who used to work for the cartel that protecting their exemption from Blue Laws repeal has been one of TADA's top priorities every session. Does anyone in her district know why she was willing to antagonize the dealers this way? More importantly, this means she should be an easy sell on supporting SB 639 to allow Tesla to sell directly to consumers in Texas. Those of you who are in her district, please tell her you support her bill SB441 and encourage her to also support SB639 to allow direct sales.
