Oklahoma governor issues order on state aircraft management

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has issued an executive order involving the use and management of the state's fleet of airplanes and helicopters in an attempt to reduce operating and maintenance costs.

The order issued Friday centralizes all state-owned aircraft under Oklahoma's public safety commissioner.

State law enforcement agencies that regularly use aircraft would retain ownership of their aircraft but their use would be scheduled by the public safety commissioner.

The order requires state agency heads to notify the director of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services when they plan to purchase or lease private aircraft.

The order also calls for development of a management plan for state-owned aircraft within 120 days, including the shared use of aircraft and the sale and disposal of aircraft that are no longer cost-efficient.
