MA - anti-Tesla bill and pro-Tesla bill both dead for this session

On March 19, all bills for this two-year session of the legislature were required to be reported on one way or another by committee.

The auto dealers' anti-Tesla bill making it illegal for manufacturers to sell directly to consumers was "sent to study," which is Massachusetts-ese for dead for this session.

The same recommendation was made for Rep. Lynch's pro-Tesla bill which explicitly legalizes such sales for manufacturers which have never used dealers.

Both of these bills may be re-filed any time starting next January, when the new legislative session begins. My guess is that based on recent progress by the dealers in other states, they are not going to give up now.
