May I please move my dealership?


A Wichita auto dealer wants to build a new facility in a different location, so approval of a Kansas state bureaucrat is required. The Kansas Register informs us so.

Although I think it’s unlikely this application will be rejected, this is another example of the overreach of Kansas regulation to the detriment of commerce. Besides this application, the same dealer will make a separate application to move its Lexus dealership.
