    Taxing electric cars owners is not so far everywhere not just in Missouri! Once more and more people will get electric cars the government won’t have other choice.

  2. I think Missouri folks who want a Tesla would just take their business out of state. So if it passes, the bill will not significantly help traditional dealerships, but it will aggravate Missouri consumers and send money out of state.
