New Jersey Just Drop-Kicked Tesla

•, Hunter Walker
A spokesperson for the Commission said the new regulations would take effect April 1. They referred all further questions about the matter to the office of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Tesla shares are off about 2.5%.
On Tuesday, Tesla launched a preemptive strike against the proposal and accused the Christie administration of having acted in bad faith. In a blog post on the company site and series of tweets from its official account, Tesla said it had been negotiating with officials in New Jersey to be allowed to directly sell its cars there in the face of "attacks" from the New Jersey Coalition of Automotive Retailers. Tesla argued the governor's office promised to handle the question of allowing direct auto sales in New Jersey "through a fair process in the Legislature" and instead "decided to go outside the legislative process by expediting a rule proposal that would completely change the law."
