Pro-Tesla Bill Passes 48-4 In Georgia – Sales Cap Of 150 Per Year Removed
According to Biz Journals, Tesla is just one small step away from scoring a major win in Georgia:
“The Georgia Senate gave final passage Wednesday to legislation that would take the wraps off Tesla Motors’ ability to sell its all-electric sedans in Georgia.”
The bill passed the Senate 48-4. It now goes to Governor Nathan Deal for signing. Deal is expected to sign the bill into law.
The legislation would “let Tesla expand its operations in Georgia from three stores to five. More importantly, it would lift a cap in current law that limits Tesla sales in the Peach State to 150 a year,” according to Biz Journals.
It’s the removal of that 150-unit-per-year cap that’s a big deal for Tesla.
Additionally, there’s wording in the bill that basically states direct sales do not violate Georgia law.
