House looks at outsourcing state air pool



Here's a bit of House budget language (p. 307) that's sure to attract the Senate's attention. Speaker Marco Rubio & Company think it's time that the state looked at ways to save money by curtailing use of the state airplanes by "second and third scheduling priority users" (that would include legislators). Budget language directs the Department of Management Services to "conduct a business case study ... that analyzes the cost effectiveness of outsourcing the executive aircraft pool." Can you recall who were some of the aircrafts' biggest users in 2007? They happened to be state senators. More here.
