First party plan vote tonight

56, businesses partner
to fight proposed law

More money: $15,000 available for opposition



Student Government voted to
allocate $5,000 to its campaign that
is targeting the Lexington Area
Party Plan in a full senate meeting
Wednesday night.

86 had already allocated
$5,000 to buy posters, stickers and
buttons to fight the plan. All of the
$10,000 came from the UK Student
Government Reserves, what SG
calls its “rainy day fund.”

A coalition of area businesses
raised $5,000 to support SG‘s cam-
paign. bringing the total to $15,000.

The coalition’s donations and
the money voted on Wednesday
will pay for producing and airing
a 3Dsecond commercial, which op
poses the plan.

“What we’ve started is a tradi~
tional grassroots effort, or what I
call a ground efi‘ort. but it's now
time to go to the air," 80 Presi-
dent Tim Robinson said.

The commercial will begin
airing on numerous TV news sta—
tions Friday morning if the plan
passes in the Urban County Coun-
cil meeting tonight. Robinson esti—
mates that the commercial will be
viewed between eight and 12 times
by Lexington residents over the

course of the next week. The coun~
cil will vote again Dec. 13.

"You will not be able to turn
on the TV without seeing this
thing." Robinson said. If the plan
does not pass tonight, plans to air
the commercial will be canceled.

While the additional funding
proposal passed in the Senate
meeting. there was some opposi-
tion to granting the extra funds —
the Senate voted 154-1.

Senator-at-iarge David
Hutchinson and Graduate School
Senator Laura Schmidt voted
against the proposal. Schmidt said
too much money is being spent on
the campaign and the funds could
be used for other programs.

“I am against the party plan
as it’s unconstitutional," Hutchin-
son said. “But this is saturation,
not exposure. Saturation is not go
ing to affect council votes."

Senate Coordinator Lesli Prof-
fitt said she found some of the re
marks made by Senate Chairman
Edwin Orange and Robinson to
dissenting senators to be “arro-
gant, rude and uncalled for.”

“I'm happy the proposal to
fight the plan passed but my heart
will remain heavy because of the
way senators were treated," Prof-
fitt said.

Stevens said.

But a citation isn‘t final.

Police actions can be
challenged under normal pro-

residents choose to contest
them, Stevens said.

The Lexington Area Par-
ty Plan is to be heard for the
first time before the full Ur-
ban County Council at
tonight‘s meeting.

after its first reading. it must
then be voted on again by the

would believe the second
reading requires another
meeting. Stevens said that is
not so.

The second reading could
be done tonight, but it re

to suspend the rules and pro-

The motion would need
10 votes, but Stevens said he

Stevens said.
