W. Va. to Create New Fleet Management Office

January 15, 2010

CHARLESTON, WV - West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin's cost-saving proposals during his "State of the State" address this week included increasing fleet management oversight.

The recession has forced a 3.4 percent reduction in state spending for the rest of this fiscal year and forced the Governor to propose a tight budget next year that includes no pay raises, according to the West Virginia MetroNews.

With a series of audits last year revealing the state spends $60 to $70 million dollars on its fleet of 7,000 vehicles, Manchin proposed the creation of a Fleet Management Office that will "be held accountable for the entire state vehicle fleet."
