If they were smart they'd make us pass a test proving we were paying attention to the ads before they let us continue our show. Also the teacher forgot to assign homework today. [ducks at flurry of spitballs]
Yes, I was quibbling with the assertion that Tesla moved its headquarters to Texas years ago. The Texas factory was built quickly, but the first cars were delivered in April 2022.
Texas law restricts manufacturers from making auto sales directly to customers. So Tesla has to ship cars out to other states to complete orders placed by residents in Texas.

It's a trigger law in that it currently does nothing because there's a statute which supersedes it. But if circumstances change somehow HB20 would be "triggered" and actually be enforceable. It's not stated within the law, just what results from the current interpretation of the text.
I'd liken it to CSS, if you set a page background to red but there's a class on it which says green, the page is green. Until the class is removed, and then it's immediately red by default.
Follow up questions on whether he's worried about publicly contradicting the State's claim elicited this:
Even the leaked Dobbs opinion would show my opinion doesn’t legally control.

So where's my lower priced single concurrent stream plan? And refund for having oversubscribed for years?
