Today, Governor Eric Greitens announced that more government cars are being reduced, saving $2.2 million in taxpayer money.
“We found another 86 government cars that weren’t needed, and we’re getting rid of them! $2.2 million of your tax dollars saved. It’s amazing what can be accomplished with some common sense. It’s your money and we’re fighting to make sure the government doesn’t waste a cent of it,” said Governor Greitens. “Thank you to Carol Comer in the Department of Natural Resources for being a budget hawk and defending taxpayer dollars.”
In FY18, the Department of Natural Resources reduced their vehicle fleet by 86 cars—approximately 14% of their total fleet. The Office of Administration confirmed that this reduction will result in $2.2 million in cost savings.
