Treasurer Torsella has declined the use of a dedicated state vehicle and will continue to use his personal vehicle. He will not seek reimbursement for mileage.
In addition, under the new policy no vehicles will be assigned to employees on a permanent basis. Instead, a limited number of pooled vehicles will be signed-out as needed for official business and the mileage recorded. Treasury will return the extra eleven vehicles back to the Commonwealth's Department of General Services.
The new policy is effective immediately.

The Pennsylvania Treasury is an independent department of state government led by the state treasurer, who is elected every four years. The department's primary duty is to safeguard and manage the state's public funds. It invests state money to generate income on behalf of the citizens of Pennsylvania, reviews and processes payments for state government agencies, and serves as custodian of more than $100 billion in state funds. Key Treasury programs include Unclaimed Property, PA 529 College Savings Program and the Board of Finance and Revenue.
