HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania’s treasurer is reducing the size of his department’s automobile fleet and won’t use a state car himself in what he says is an effort to keep a campaign promise.

Joe Torsella says the treasury’s fleet will be reduced from 21 vehicles to 10.

He will also end the practice of assigning state cars to individual staffers. Instead, a limited number of pooled vehicles will be signed-out as needed for official business and the mileage recorded.

He says the move will honor a commitment he made at his swearing-in ceremony to remember that every dollar the state spends comes from hardworking taxpayers.

The new policy is effective immediately.
