I got an email from tesla today that there's some legislative hurdles for tesla in NJ.
Join us at the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission
on Tuesday, March 11th at 2pm to show your support for Tesla in New Jersey.
Dear Tesla Advocates,
Tesla is under attack in New Jersey! Yesterday we received news that Governor Christie’s administration has gone back on its word to delay a proposed anti-Tesla regulation so that the matter can be handled in the legislature. Rather than stick up for New Jersey consumers, the Administration and the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission are thwarting the legislature at the behest of a special interest group looking to protect its monopoly at the expense of New Jersey consumers. Instead, the Administration has decided to expedite Rule Proposal PRN 2013-138 that would curtail Tesla’s sales operations and jeopardize our existing retail licenses in the state. Tesla could be forced to shutter all operations in the state as early as this afternoon!
You can show your support by contacting the Governor or your local State Legislator, and let them know that you want Tesla to stay and grow in New Jersey!
Other ways to show support:
Please join us and other Tesla Advocates at the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission’s meeting to help defeat this regulation.
What: New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission Meeting
When: Tuesday, March 11th at 2pm
Where: New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission

Spread the word, and thank you for your immediate action!

Here's what I quickly wrote to the governor's office.
Dear Mr. Christie
Tesla is an American company and has done everything right in thinking out of the box in changing an automobile experience.
Whether it's transparency, an honest buying experience, a better driving and ownership experience and being environmentally responsible.
I'm not sure why the state isn't embracing the company and all that it stands for.
As an owner of two electric cars, one from tesla, the other from Nissan, I have a unique experience of ownership.
I haven't had a better purchase experience. In today's age, in my opinion, car dealers aren't needed. Users can configure their cars online and go through all options. The only thing we need dealers for, is to service a car.
It will save the public tons of money by eliminating unnecessary middlemen, and enable them to spend money elsewhere. In a more meaningful place.
Please don't let anyone out hurdles for tesla. We are going through and evolution. With changing times and changing technologies, we should embrace the future.
