Beshear Hocks Two State Airplanes on eBay

by admin on April 20, 2011

If you’re in need of a twin-engine 1975 Piper Navajo or a single-engine 1967 Cessna Skyhawk, the state has a deal for you. Going once, going twice …

From the governor’s office:

Governor Steve Beshear today announced plans to sell two aircraft from the Commonwealth’s air fleet as a part of his ongoing Smart Government Initiative.

Selling the aircraft is a cost-saving action the governor will take as a result of SGI, a top-to-bottom yearlong examination of state government operations and processes to find additional opportunities to save taxpayer dollars and make state government more efficient.

“Today I to continue my efforts to make Kentucky government efficient and lean by putting these two planes up for sale on eBay,” said Gov. Beshear. “However, this is about more than selling these two planes. Since taking office, I have cut more than a billion dollars out of the state budget, and created the smallest state government in a generation. In the coming months, I will continue to announce further efficiency measures developed by my Smart Government Initiative in order to ensure the smartest use of taxpayer dollars.”
