Action Alert: New Jersey is listening. Now is the time for us to speak up!

In March, behind closed doors and without public consultation, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s Department of Motor Vehicles voted to enforce decades old draconian laws to prevent Tesla Motors from selling directly to consumers in New Jersey.

Your call to the Legislature to have your say was heard, loud and clear! A bill to change those laws has been prepared and on June 5th, that co-sponsored bill to allow new EV car companies like Tesla Motors sell cars directly to the public, will be heard by the Assembly Consumer Affairs Committee. See the full text of NJ A3096 here.

Please take a moment to re-iterate your call to pass the bill. We’re on the home stretch, democracy is working, victory is in sight.

If you’re still in any doubt over supporting this bill, consider our world if Apple had been forced to sell the iPhone through retailers only - with retailer set pricing, retailer product specification and their unwanted added software, would the US still be the leaders in smartphone design and technology or would China and Europe have stolen the show? Tesla Motors and Apple are both US companies that disrupt the status quo.

Please fill out the form below to join us in calling for the New Jersey Consumer Affairs Committee to support this bill supporting New Jersey and American innovation.

Thank you,

Richard Kelly
