Consider This... GM Should Leave Texas Dealerships Alone

Posted:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - General Motors is now putting Texas car dealerships and their employees at risk. That's according to Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott and I agree 100%.

In a statement released last week, Abbott says he's concerned that GM wants to be freed from certain Texas laws - laws that protect local dealerships. If that happens, local dealerships could be forced to sign agreements that may actually hurt their business.

Among other things, these bad agreements could:

  1. Deny local dealerships the right to market other car brands.
  2. Force local dealerships to order new gm vehicles, even if those vehicles don't sell in Lubbock.
  3. These agreements could even limit location options for local dealerships.

This is way too much government involvement. Oh, did I mention that gm is now majority owned by the government? Consider this, if GM and the federal government get their way, our family owned dealerships, their employees and you the consumer will be the loser.

If you agree, then write your congressman and state elected officials.  Their information is listed below. Tell them to leave Texas alone and let free enterprise continue to work on the South Plains.
