Bill: No new cars for state agencies

The House Appropriations Committee on Thursday passed a one-year ban on most state agencies buying or leasing new vehicles, part of a savings and cuts package legislative budget leaders proposed in the fall.

Rep. Toby Barker, R-Hattiesburg, said House Bill 938, authored by Appropriations Chairman John Read, would exempt law enforcement and emergency vehicles from the moratorium, as well as those purchased by Child Protective Services, which only recently became a stand-alone agency. It would also exempt vehicles bought 100 percent with grant money.
