As indicated, we noticed that every state has auto dealership franchise laws, so we’ve marked them all “yes” in column B. Then, we’ve provided every link the laws, statutes, and codes in Column C, and in the “Notes” column provided the details of which laws were applicable in each State. While we’ve included the laws and codes in column B, in some states, we’ve also provided the official dealership guide in the notes section, as we considered this was relevant information for dealers in that region.
