    When is the hearing? Green Car Reports says "this afternoon" but the letter from Tesla says December 4th, which is tomorrow.

    Tesla's letter is incorrect, the hearing was moved up without notification.

    Shenanigans. They're trying to get it through before Tesla can respond.

    Here's what I told the governor:

    Governor Kasich--


    I understand the Ohio legislature is considering a bill to ban direct manufacturer sale of automobiles to the public.


    This bill, which seems aimed directly at Tesla Motors, is a classic example of special-interest protectionism run amok. Tesla represents the most exciting innovation in the automotive space in decades. It has shown that American innovation still can lead the world, and it is on track to bring jobs and economic development to Ohio and throughout the country.


    Moreover, my family members in Ohio are all extremely excited about the environmental benefits that Tesla provides.


    I hope that if this bill passes, your principled support for open markets and competition will lead you to veto it.

    Someone on autobloggreen said the bill was passed through a rushed session. So the only chance right now may be to try to get a governor veto.

    Of course just in case that source is unreliable, writing to legislators still matters.
    Because there are tons of crazy people in this world...

    unsure if that guy is talking about the bill or the amendment getting passed 32-0.

    Yeah, he might be talking about the bill (which was passed 32-0) and not the amendment (maybe still not passed).

    I guess it's safest to write to both.

    Status Report of Legislation - 130th General Assemly - Senate Bills

    I think the confusion is this page - http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/v...?ID=130_SB_137 - where the senate passed the bill as approved to be brought before the 130th general assembly.

    Tesla Motors and Ohio - SB 137 - Owners/Advocates Call to Action

    Ohio strikes down the amendment to SB137 which would limit Tesla's direct sales and then passes the unamended bill 12-0.
