A legislative perspective With Rep. Carolyn Belcher My colleagues and I in the House of Representatives made real progress this week in our attempts to devise a spending plan for Kentucky. We passed from the House Appropriations and Revenue Committee a lean budget that avoids spending cuts to public schools, human services and public safety, while enacting no major tax increas- es. The House Budget Plan does ask other state agencies to reduce their budgets by 2.6%. We're asking this of higher education, too, which is a difficult task, but one necessary in these times of limited growth and revenue. We felt it was important, however, t. provide continued fund- ing for the "Bucks for Brains" pro- gram that has resulted in new advancements in research and tech- nology at universities across the state. We'll accomplish this funding through bond issues The House Budget also eliminates a number of politically appointed jobs in state government, and reduces public service contracts paid to con- sultants who provide advice and counsel to a number of state agen- cies. In or plan, state employees and teachers would receive a flat raise of $1,080 in 2003-04, instead of a 2.7% increase originally called for in the House Budget. Plan the legislature came close to approving last year. This raises amounts to more than a 2.7% increase for those making under $40,000, and less for those who receive salaries over that amount. We did this to help those individuals at the lower income lev- els, who are struggling the most in Jill Toy - 23 Toy had 7 points, 6 steals and held Elliott County's leading scorer to 0 points in the second half. today's economy It's not a pretty budget and, in many ways, it's a painful one, but we felt it was our obligation to tighten the state's belt the same way many of you are trimming expenses for your family until better times. We'll vote on the budget in the full House, as soon as we return to work next week. From there, we'll send it on to our colleagues in the Senate, who will consider the budget and adjust it with their own spending priorities. There's more work to be done, for sure, but we've taken the first big steps in fulfilling our respon- sibilities of producing a new budget tbr the Commonwealth. We also moved forward on a vari- ety of legislative fronts this week. On Wednesday, the House approved a bill designed to reduce the percentage of obese children in Kentucky, which studies show has risen to 30%. HB 77 would prohibit soft drinks and other high-sugar or high-fat foods from being sold in elementary and middle schools, and limit the sale of those items in high schools during the school day. Under the bill, schools could con- tinue to sell water, low-fat milk or juice, with at least 25% real juice content throughout the school day, except during the breakfast and lunch periods. The measure now moves to the Senate for consideration. We also extended the benefits of a popular bill approved last year by the Kentucky General Assembly, which provided high school diplomas to World War II veterans who, because of their service to their country, were unable to complete sdfiool. HB 30 allows the same honor for veterans of the Korean Conflict and cleared the full House on a unanimous 98-0 vote. THOMPSON BROTHERS EQUIPMENT AUCTION Located: One (1) mile west of Hillsboro, Ky.

Candra Richards - 33 Richards, coming off an ankle in- jury, scored 12 points in two varsity games and added 7 points and 8 rebounds in the JV win over Elliott. In a close vote, the House voted down a proposal which would have banned smoking in dorms, residence halls and other campus-owned and sanctioned housing, at public and pri- vate colleges and universities. While many members spoke in support of the bill for student safety and health concerns, others believed this deci: sion should be left to the governing bodies at the individual schools. Already, Murray State University and Western Kentucky University have established smoking bans in their residence halls. In House committee work, we took steps to outlaw the cloning of human beings through HB 265, which prohibits cloning, or attempts to clone, cells to intentionally create a child. Violators would be guilty of a Class C felony, which carries a sen- tence of between five and ten years in prison. The bill does allow researchers to continue their efforts to search for cures to various diseases and disorders through nuclear trans- plantation and stem cell research. Currently, there is no law in Kentucky regulating human cloning. A bill aimed at blocking "double dipping" by state selected officials who retire and return to the same office cleared the House State Government Committee this week. The bill would close the loophole that allows elected officials to draw full retirement and their salary, lib 61 Legislators debating issues in Frankfort Rep.

The House Banking and Insurance Committee also approved legislation to prohibit predatory lend- ing practices against low-income homeowners who are often targeted for high-cost loans based on their home equity instead of their income. Additionally, the House Seniors, Military Affairs and Public Safety Committee approved HB 242, which would make it a crime to abuse, neg- lect or exploit mentall,, or physically impaired adults who reed assistance to perform daily tasks, manage their resources or protect them from harm. We'll be hearing more about both of these bills in the next couple of weeks. We've got more work to do in the limited amount of time provided to us during this shortened, annual ses- sion.
