Missouri state legislators killed a bill that would have disallowed Tesla from selling directly to customers in the state. The Missouri speaker of the House of Representatives told the Wall Street Journal that legislation would be reintroduced next year. Missouri HB 1124 deals mostly with all-terrain vehicles, but an additional provision would ban direct sales from vehicle manufacturers.
Tesla only has one store in Missouri currently, in St. Louis., but is looking to expand in the Midwest. There are state by state battles happening across the country about letting Tesla into their states. The local franchised dealers are spending a lot of money to keep Tesla out of their states, including in Texas, where over 780 million was estimated to be spent. Battles are also occurring in New Jersey, Washington and other states.
