Utah Bill Aims to Boost State Fleet Fuel Efficiency

February 19, 2007

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah --- Utah state senators are considering legislation that would require the state's fleet operations to establish standards for the purchase of vehicles and require agency managers to justify buying larger, less fuel-efficient models. The Herald Journal newspaper quoted Rep. Fred Hunsaker (R-Logan) saying: "We have a need all over the country to improve our energy issues, and this is a step where the state will lead out in its own fleet."The bill easily pased the House a couple weeks ago. It cleared a Senate committee last week.Each year Utah spends about $61 million to maintain its 4,300-vehicle fleet. In 2006, state-owned vehicles logged more than 88.8 million miles. The Division of Fleet Operations processed more than 28,000 fuel transactions each month, the Herald Journal reported.
