Mississippi House Bill 401 to regulate electric vehicle sales

Electric vehicle sales are soaring across the country, but new measures in the state house in Jackson could regulate how they are sold.

EV’s have had success in sales due to the company run store model rather than traditional dealerships.

Mississippi House Bill 401 is proposed to require all EV sales to be done through independent dealers.

Opponents to the bill say that this is counterintuitive to free market stances that some politicians stand behind.

The bill passed the House by a margin of 105-9 earlier this month and made its way through the Senate Finance Committee.

It now heads to the full Senate, if passed it would reach the governor’s desk.
