Letter on Anti-Consumer Effects of Laws Prohibiting Direct Distribution of Automobiles

February 17, 2015

ITIF served as a cosignatory to an open letter to state government leaders calling for the end of policies designed to block the sale of Tesla automobiles. Multiple states have passed laws that prevent the company from selling cars directly to consumers, restricting choice and limiting access to innovative alternative fuel technologies. Additional organizations joining in the call include: Americans for Prosperity, the Consumer Federation of America and the Sierra Club.
