Governor Beverly Perdue ordered the state highway patrol to implement new safeguards to make sure travel records don't turn up missing.
The patrol says it can't find some of former Governor Mike Easley's travel records, this as a federal grand jury investigates the former governor traveling on private airlines.
"I've pledged to run an open and transparent administration," said Gov. Perdue. "This new protocol will provide clear direction for how the State Highway Patrol executive security detail collects and retains travel records."
The new form will include detailed information about each trip outside of Wake County taken by the governor, or lieutenant governor when a member of the executive securty detail provides protection.
A news release says all records will be maintained for four years after the governor or lieutenant governor's term ends.
