    The dust hasn’t settled on this legislation yet. Undoubtedly there will be some line item vetos if not a veto of the entire bill.

    Wisconsinites need to reach out to the governor and urge him to keep the Tesla provision in the bill.

    There are some owners who believe it should be vetoed entirely. Some don’t like how the Tesla provision got in the bill. While the bill is less than ideal they do not realize how incredibly difficult it will be pass this as standalone legislation. Believe me we’ve been trying....

    This is politics ........ It’s a dirty business anyway you slice it.

    Wisconsin Gov can veto individual spending items.

    The Tesla provision is not a spending item.

    He can veto that too independently of the entire bill?

    The Wisconsin Tesla direct sales provision has been vetoed by the governor.....

    From the Veto Message:

    73. Direct Sale of Motor Vehicles from Manufacturer
    Sections 1826g, 1826m and 1826s

    This provision allows for the sale of motor vehicles directly by a dealership owned by a
    manufacturer if that manufacturer only makes electric powered cars.

    I am vetoing this provision as I object to significant changes to existing motor vehicle
    dealership law and the consumer protections they provide to Wisconsin occurring late in the
    state budget process and without the opportunity for adequate public input and debate.
