House Environment and Transportation Committee Hearing on 2/19/15 at 1:00 PM

The Baltimore Sun has published a front page feature story with the headline, “Legislation could open the door for Tesla to sell its cars in Maryland.” State Delegate Kirill Reznik from District 39 in Montgomery County has introduced House Bill 235 which would lift the current ban on direct sales by Tesla Motors in the state.

Maryland HB235 would authorize a manufacturer to be licensed as a vehicle dealer if that manufacturer deals only in electric or non fossil-fuel burning vehicles and if no dealer in the State holds a franchise.

There will be a hearing on HB235 in the House Environment and Transportation Committee at 1:00 on February 19, 2015. Here is the schedule.

There are several ways you can express your opinion to Maryland lawmakers on HB 235.
