I own a Tesla Model S, 2015 model. I live in Santa Fe, NM and cannot get service on my car in New Mexico because of opposition from the Auto Dealers Association. I must drive to Denver, CO or Scottsdale, AZ for service and for the annual inspection. This is burdensome and costly. It serves no purpose to protect the dealers of gasoline powered vehicles from their manufacturers. The only purpose is to suppress the progress of electric vehicles. This is detrimental to the country as a whole and to me, personally. Please invalidate all such laws by your authority to stop the suppression of free trade. Thank you. John L. Cook. [REDACTED]
