WFAE Talks: Tesla's Fight With Auto Dealers, Common Core Changes, I-77 Potato Field


Environmental reporter David Boraks joins WFAE Talks for the first time. He talks about the dispute between Tesla Motors and Charlotte-area dealerships. The dealerships say Tesla cars can be sold in Charlotte, as long as dealers sell them. Tesla wants to having its own car lot and sell directly to the public, but many state laws across the country protect dealers from that kind of competition.

We’ll also discuss recommendations for Common Core in North Carolina. A committee is recommending only small changes after much legislative and public debate more than a year ago. Plus, the potato field that on I-77 Friday morning.
