The Bureau of Economic Geology is happy to announce that we have purchased a new hybrid vehicle for our fleet. The brand-new Toyota Highlander Hybrid gives the Bureau bragging rights for being the first unit at UT to purchase a hybrid. The University is responsible for many initiatives in its quest to preserve our environment, and the Bureau is proud to take the lead in what we hope will be a new phase in this quest. 09/20/06
