(GAGE):
"THE PROPOSED REWRITE OF NEW JERSEY'S AUTO-FRANCHISE LAW WOULD MAKE IT HARDER, AND COSTLIER, FOR AUTOMAKERS TO OPERATE--AND TO EMPLOY STATE-RESIDENTS.  IF PASSED AS WRITTEN, THE LEGISLATURE WOULD CREATE THE MOST-ONEROUS AUTO-FRANCHISE REGULATIONS, IN THE NATION--FOR EVERYONE BUT TESLA--AND WOULD UNNECESSARILY RAISE COSTS, FOR CONSUMERS, TO BUY AND MAINTAIN A VEHICLE.  NEW JERSEY IS THE EAST COAST'S HOME FOR THE AUTO-INDUSTRY--INCLUDING THE NORTH-AMERICAN HEADQUARTERS OF SEVEN MAJOR AUTOMAKERS.  AND, 14 AUTOMAKERS MAINTAIN ALMOST 30 REGIONAL OFFICES, PARTS-DISTRIBUTION CENTERS, TRAINING-FACILITIES, AND FINANCIAL-SERVICE OPERATIONS, IN THE STATE.  WHAT'S MORE, PORTS IN NEWARK AND JERSEY CITY ARE CURRENTLY THE LARGEST, IN THE U-S, FOR AUTO-RELATED ACTIVITY.  THESE BILLS DEVALUE AUTOMAKER-INVESTMENTS.  AND, IF LEGISLATORS APPROVE THEM, THEY'D JEOPARDIZE THE THOUSANDS OF DIRECT AUTO-JOBS IN NEW JERSEY--NOT TO MENTION THE TENS-OF-THOUSANDS MORE THAT SUPPORT THEM.  CAR-DEALERS HAVE FAILED TO DEMONSTRATE JUST WHY THESE CHANGES ARE WARRANTED, OR EVEN NEEDED--MUCH LESS HOW CONSUMERS WOULD BENEFIT.
