N.J. Lawmaker Proposes Allowing Direct Electric-Car Sales

New Jersey Assemblyman Tim Eustace, a Democrat from Maywood, said he has introduced a bill to allow consumers to buy electric cars directly from a manufacturer.

The move follows the March 11 vote of the eight-member state Motor Vehicle Commission, which consists of members of Republican Governor Chris Christie’s cabinet and other gubernatorial appointees, to block Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA) from direct sales.
