Item 470 #1s

Aviation, Department of

Page 350, after line 12, insert:
"The Director, Department of Aviation, shall prepare general guidelines regarding aircraft acquisition and use that shall include a requirement for state agencies to develop written policies on usage, charge rates and record keeping.  The Director shall examine the aircraft needs of state agencies and determine the most efficient and effective method of organizing and managing the Commonwealth's aircraft operations.  The Director shall implement the aircraft management system he determines to be most suitable and revise it periodically as the need arises."

(This amendment is based on language included in the General Provisions of the introduced budget bill. Placing the language within the appropriations for the Department of Aviation makes the policy more accessible to other state agencies and to the public. A companion amendment deletes the language from the General Provisions.)
