Tesla Motors, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA): The head of the National Automobile Dealers Association, Montana dealer Bill Underriner, has informed Corporate Intelligence that he along with other members of his organization continue to be concerned that Tesla’s company stores do not comply with the franchise laws in a number of states.
