Governing;Jul2007, Vol. 20 Issue 10, p78
The article focuses on the decision of Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius to eliminate the state's motor vehicle pool in 2003. Sebelius also ordered state agencies to sell their cars and rent the vehicles they need. In 2007, a legislative audit revealed that initial savings from the dissolution of pool were undercut because of rising prices of gas and cost of renting cars. Political opponents of Sibelius in the legislature criticized the former after the release of the audit.
