If they were so stupid that they didn't move far enough away, who is at fault? The law has been in place for DECADES. How dumb do you have to be to spend tens of thousands of dollars if not hundreds of thousands of dollars without knowing ALL the pros and cons, risks and responsibilities attaching to that purchase?

I haven't heard much from Pee Wee Durbin lately. Surprised he hasn't been out trumping the "we are not at war with radical Islam" spin.

Tesla Gets Missouri Break as House Lets Direct-Sales Ban Wither

Proposal would have required vehicles to be sold through dealerships only

From bloomberg.com:

Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA) won’t be barred from selling its electric cars directly to Missouri customers after the state’s legislature adjourned without voting on a bill the company called a “sneak attack” on its business.

The current session concluded yesterday in Jefferson City without taking up a House bill that had passed Missouri’s Senate with no public comment or debate, Tesla said in an e-mailed statement. Language was added to the bill, dealing mainly with rules for all-terrain vehicles, to explicitly require consumers to buy vehicles only through franchise auto dealerships.

“The defeat of this anti-free market proposal is a victory for Missouri consumers and for the state’s economy,” Diarmuid O’Connell, Tesla’s vice president of business development, said in the statement.

The challenge in Missouri arose as Tesla appealed New Jersey’s March decision to ban direct auto sales by manufacturers and as it works to keep selling Model S sedans at its Massachusetts stores. While Texas and Arizona also bar direct sales of Teslas, the Palo Alto, California-based company worked out arrangements in Ohio and New York this year to keep selling in those states.

The company, now the largest auto employer in California, has one store in Missouri in University City, near St. Louis, where it also operates a service center. A second store in the state may be added in Kansas City, O’Connell said in a conference call this week.
