July 7, 2003

The state of Tennessee owns too many vehicles, according to Gov. Phil Bredesen, who was quoted in an article written by The Associated Press on July 6, 2003. As a result, the governor ordered a review of the more than 12,000 vehicles assigned to the state’s executive branch, which are valued at $50 million. According to Tennessee General Services Commissioner Gwendolyn Davis, it is estimated that the cost of buying new vehicles and repairing those in service this year will cost the state more than $23 million.
