Melehani is also an at-large member of the state Libertarian Party executive committee. He is a student in the combined MD/PhD program at UNC Chapel Hill School of Medicine.
Last week, the state Senate unanimously approved the bill which would ban direct auto sales to consumers by companies like Tesla Motors under the premise that it threatened the jobs of thousands who work at auto dealerships.
"I suspect the North Carolina Auto Dealership Association played a major role in bringing both parties together to pass this protectionist legislation," Melehani said.
Melehani said that if enacted into law the bill will stifle innovation and hurt consumers by preventing competition and thus increasing cost.
"The NC Senate clearly lacks an understanding of opportunity costs," he explained "When consumers are forced to pay more for a good, they ultimately can afford less of that good and others too."
Melehani recounted a famous story told about noted economist Milton Friedman.

“Imagine all the jobs we could create if we banned electronic printing of books or banned computers from automating manufacturing processes.â€
“These obviously are backwards ideas,†he said. “The ban on direct auto sales in SB 327 (Clarify Motor Vehicle Licensing Law) is backwards as well.â€
