Regarding "Auto Distribution Workshop, Project No. P131202" I would like to remind the committee that dealership franchise laws are to prevent dealerships and manufacturers from competing for the same customers. In the case of Tesla Motors, they have no independent dealerships and should be exempt from these arcane laws.
