A White House Petition to allow Tesla to sell cars direct has succeeded to get the necessary 100,000 signatures.
Car dealers are trying to prevent Tesla Motors from selling cars direct in some states. A White House petition to prevent States from blocking Tesla direct sales model has been launched early June. There petition has now well passed the 100,000 signatures mark before the cut off day July 5.
The petition is aimed to allow Tesla Motors to sell directly to consumers in all 50 states.
The description reads: "States should not be allowed to prevent Tesla Motors from selling cars directly to customers. The state legislators are trying to unfairly protect automobile dealers in their states from competition. Tesla is providing competition, which is good for consumers."

Now the government has to look at the issue. The question is how they will act. The modern way to buy cars is made to order. That is why Tesla needs to be able to sell direct and not have to own big dealerships with cars on a lot.
