the economic feasibility of gasoline-related goals within a correctional
system environment that presents significant challenges for energy efficiency.
The following activities are the focus of agency efforts toward the
goal of reducing gasoline consumption.

- TJJD is implementing
enhanced preventive maintenance program for its motor vehicle fleet.

administered by the Texas Building and Procurement Commission. Greater
