Anti-Tesla laws In AZ, MI, NJ, and TX nominated for 'Luddite Award'

Anti-Tesla laws In AZ, MI, NJ, and TX nominated for 'Luddite Award' | Upsetment | Scoop.it
A technology think tank has nominated four anti-Tesla states for its annual Luddite Award – so named after the 19th-century British artisans who protested against industrial progress. Arizona, Texas, Minnesota, and New Jersey all passed laws restricting Tesla sales last year.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Where were these states when Amazon was putting bookstores out of business and when McDonalds and the like were destroying the local diners? Now those were businesses worth saving, but of course they didn't have all that money and organization ready to fight of innovation. I wonder how much money has been slipped under the tables in these states.
