title= Auto dealers try to sneak in a bill that would put "Tesla out of business in New York"
--

care2 (for many many, many months now) discards everything starting with a " from the title of a C2NN-post.
workaround: use ' instead, or ''two of them'' (and PLEASE DO ask care2 to fix this, which fix imho is long, very long overdue)

I think the difference will be if NY State lawmakers allow this .
As far as a petition goes I cannot hazard a guess on that , I do think awareness is raised by posting this story .
Thanks

For Auto Dealer Associations to claim that restricting competition is in the best interests of the public is wrong and defies obvious common sense.

So dealers that just sell one type of new car E.G Ford are not restricting competition.

I do not think that the electric is the right way to go, I more for the fuel cell.

Thanks, Ruth. I found this:
am confused bout all these different cars, but only the future will tell which type is the best and most sustainable. I do not own a car... But I do think it is wrong to try to put a company out of business just because it makes cars more ecological.

No surprise, I think David C has a point, although if NY can't accept this "step" a "fuel cell" will get nowhere! Gotta say - the car looks rather sharp!
"Competition" my eye!
