TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey lawmakers are considering whether to drastically reduce in the number of motor vehicles in the state fleet.
A state Senate committee is scheduled to take up the bill from Democratic state Sen. Jeff Van Drew on Thursday.
It calls for culling the number of state cars by 10% for five consecutive years. Vehicles used by state police, gaming enforcement officials, and for construction and emergency services would be exempt.
The law is intended to cut costs and to raise some money for state coffers.
