The Arkansas motor pool

Posted By on Mon, Oct 29, 2007 at 11:16 AM

Here's a fun list to peruse, courtesy of Rep. Steve Harrelson's Under the Dome blog. It's a report on the state vehicle fleet. UAF has 536 vehicles, for example. Also mileage reimbursements -- a whopping $10 million for Health and Human Services.

This reminds me of something else I'd like to see a state report on -- cell phones. How many have been issued in state government ad what do they cost? Remember when there were no cell phones to speak of? Not that long ago.

ALSO: Here's a story about a great idea in Philadelphia, a community car rental program. In addition to hourly rentals for members, the private outfit buys cars that are leased to the city. They are available for use at night and on weekends by anyone else.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
