LITTLE ROCK, AR - Gov. Mike Beebe wants a detailed review of all the vehicles in the state's 8,653-vehicle fleet, nearly 2,000 of which are used for commuting, according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
Beebe said August 4 that because of inconsistent data from state officials he has ordered the Department of Finance and Administration to look into the fleet. The governor said he wants justification for each vehicle's use and why it is necessary.
Beebe said he has asked DFA director Richard Weiss to conduct the review. Weiss said he sent letters Wednesday to all state agencies, institutions, and offices asking for information about their vehicle fleets.
