BILL SUMMARIES

COMMITTEE

HCS HB 1218 -- STATE VEHICLES

SPONSOR:  Barry (Dougherty)

COMMITTEE ACTION:  Voted "do pass" by the Committee on
Governmental Organization and Review by a vote of 7 to 0.

This substitute creates the position of state vehicle fleet
manager within the Office of Administration.  Beginning July 1,
2001, the manager will purchase, allocate, and dispose of state
vehicles, except those purchased with federal funds, and
coordinate vehicle-related travel activities for all state
agencies except the National Guard, Department of
Transportation, Department of Conservation, and the Highway
Patrol.

Agencies will request vehicles at least 6 months prior to the
start of each fiscal year.  The manager will purchase and
allocate vehicles based on efficiency and cost effectiveness,
and bill agencies for vehicle use on a life-cycle cost-per-mile
basis.  The manager will also maintain a pool of vehicles for
occasional agency use, develop a data system to track vehicle
use and maintenance, and implement a vehicle replacement cycle
that optimizes efficiency.  Agencies may use savings resulting
from efficient vehicle use for any purpose except salary
increases.  An agency's savings for a given fiscal year will be
determined by comparing the agency's current vehicle-related
cost with the agency's cost for fiscal year 2000, as adjusted
for inflation.

The manager is also responsible for investigating citizen
complaints about inappropriate state vehicle use.  Employees who
use state vehicles for any purpose other than state business are
subject to disciplinary action or termination.

FISCAL NOTE:  Not available at time of printing.

PROPONENTS:  Supporters say that this bill will save the state
money.  Savings in vehicle purchase could be used by agencies
for other programs.  Having all administration of vehicle
management with one person would be more efficient.  Complaints
could be directed to this one person.

Testifying for the bill was Representative Dougherty.

OPPONENTS:  There was no opposition voiced to the committee.

Steve Bauer, Legislative Analyst
