New York Auto Dealers' Lobby Prepping New Anti-Tesla Legislation

[Deborah Dorman] said the bill was designed to protect consumers because it required companies to create a storefront in the state and was not directed at Tesla because it sold electric vehicles. Some environmentalists have claimed the bill unfairly targets electric car manufacturers.
