A report to a state commission indicates Louisiana has 12,700 public vehicles worth about $200 million. Members of a streamlining state government commission say that's too many vehicles.

The vehicles range from passenger sedans and vans to heavy equipment used for construction. The commission wants to eliminate 1,200 from the state's fleet. That would put the count back to pre-Katrina levels.

Commissioners also want an additional 20 percent reduction in the fleet long term.
