Please address the barriers created by certain states to the direct sale of electric vehicles to the consumer. Auto dealer groups are attempting to destroy the electric vehicle industry and protect their monopolies. These auto dealer groups are no longer small family owned businesses but large national concerns who are not threatened by traditional auto makers. The consumer deserves the right to purchase their next auto, electric or internal combustion engine, from anyone they choose including direct sales over the internet.
