Republicans push Tesla dealership bill

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) – State lawmakers are expected to discuss a Republican bill that would allow electric car maker Tesla to sell its cars directly to Wisconsin customers through dealerships.

Right now, Wisconsin law prohibits automakers from operating or controlling a car dealership. The bill’s authors say traditional dealerships would still be protected from competition with gas-powered automakers.

Nearly two dozen other states have allowed Tesla to open its own stores to sell and service its vehicles.
