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.
