How many cars is too many cars for state government?

The state of Mississippi owns more than 7,000 vehicles, ranging from state trooper cars to dump trucks. Some agencies have nearly as many vehicles as employees.

Overall, the Magnolia State compares favorably to two of its neighbors, but small-government advocates argue that the state still owns too many cars — particularly agencies where the ratio is almost one-to-one.
