This was the headline today in Harvey Kronberg's Quorum Report daily buzz: http://www.quorumreport.com/buzz/buzz.cfm From an SREC resolution approved overwhelmingly: "The Republican Party of Texas favors allowing consumers to purchase cars directly from manufacturers." SREC stands for State Republican Executive Committee. I can't find anything about this yet on the Texas Republican Party website. This was posted in a TMC general forum on energy and environment. Mods, sorry for the cross post but no one would have seen it there.
