California is a state that's looking to drastically cut its spending. According to the California Citizens Compensation Commission, this move will save $2.3 million over the next five years. Prior to the legislative change, taxpayers were shelling out for the vehicle lease, gas and insurance. The most expensive vehicle serving as a state-funded ride? Senator Ron Calderon's Cadillac STS, which was slurping down fuel at an average rate of $83 weekly.
The lawmakers have a few months left to enjoy their vehicles. The new rule takes effect in December of 2011.
