Economist predicts low state revenues; budget cut possible


Staff, wire reports


l-RANKFORT. Ky. — State offi-
cials yesterday heard potentially
dismal revenue forecasts for this
fiscal year and raised the possibility
of a special legislative session to
deal with budget shortfalls.

FRANKFURT. Ky. —— (iov.
Brereton Jones is reviewing propo-
sals for curbing health care costs.
including one that would create a
state commission that would be in
charge of all health planning and

The three-member commission
would he able to set rates if the
govemor declared an emergency
because costs exceeded limits set
by the state. The (‘ourier-Joumal
reported Thursday.

The newspaper obtained a draft
document on Jones‘ health-care
plans. which sets out the details of
the commission. The document out—
lines other measures that have been
considered. but it could not be de-
termined whether they had been
adopted as part of Jones' plan.

Jones wants to hold a special
General Assembly session in No-
vember on health care. llis propo-
sals are expected to be unveiled
next week before a panel of legisla-
tors and gubematorial advisers.

Human Resources Secretary Leo-
nard lleller said several draft docu-
ments have been circulating among
members of a small group that is
working on Jones‘ plan.

He said that the document the
newspaper obtained was not the fi«
nal version of the plan and that sev-
eral of the proposals had been dis-

lleller declined to say which pro-
posals had been adopted for the fi-
nal plan, saying Jones has “several
options he wants to consider" be-
fore announcing the details next
week. However, it is known that
the new health commission will be
included in Jones‘ proposals.

The draft document outlines oth-
er duties of the commission. such
as licensing health-care profes-
sions. collecting health-care infor-
tnation. and regulating health-care
construction and expenditures —
the last of which was formerly
known as the certificate—of—need
process. These duties are currently
handled by an assortment of state
agencies and commissions.

The last two times the state faced
revenue shortfalls. budget cuts of
$15.2 million and Sll.5 million
were levied against l'K.

mist Mary Lynch told the interim
Appropriations and Revenue (‘om—
mittee that (ieneral Fund receipts
this year will be $4.5 billion. That

sum is about $79 million less than
the state needs to meet its official
revenue needs. and it does not take
into account the fact that another
$106 million would be needed to
catch tip with income tax refunds
that were held over to make last
year's budget balance.

“We're really talking about $185

million if we catch up on all the re-
funds." Lynch told the legislators.

said revenue receipts for July. Au-

Keeping pets not always good choice for college students

Students need to make a choice
between college life and family
pets. local llumzme Society officials

Nancy Victor. shelter director of
the WiXidford (‘ounty Humane So-
ciety. said pcts can develop behav»
ior problems without rigid sched-
ules of walking and feeding. But
this is difficult for students. who of~
ten have irregular schedules that
differ from day to day.

In some cases. students don‘t
have an option when it comes to
pets — they‘re not allowed in carn-
pus residence halls. unless the pets
are fish in a 20 gallon tank or small-
er. said Bob Clay, director of resi-
dence life.

“If a cat can stay underwater 20
minutes (using scuba equipment) it
can stay," said Blanding Tower res-

idcticc hall advisor Kathy Taulbce.

Stipply and demand factors also
czut prohibit off-campus students
frorn owning pets. lf apartments are

Paint-recycling project success,
none left for second distribution


By Angie Bird
Contributing Writer


'lbe 2.500 gallons of old paint
collected in a recycling project at
UK this summer may be just a drop
in the bucket.

Because the paint was collected
only froin Fayette (‘ounty residents
and businesses were not asked to
contribute. UK student laura
lleege said there is probably “a lot
more paint out there."

The recycling effort was so suc-
cessful. plans are underway to re-

peat the project again next year.

“The response was great," said
lleege, who participated in the col-
lection efforts. “People said we
should have them all the time."

The idea for the Household Paint
Recycling Day started as a class
project in a solid waste manage-
ment class, said Cynthia Ridell, a
natural resources senior.

She said the idea was chosen be-
cause “discarded paint can contami—
nate water supplies. especially if
there is more than one inch of paittt
in the base of the can.“

Approximately 2.500 gallons of

both latex and oil based paints were
donated during the paint collection,
which was held July ll at (‘om-
monwealth Stadium.

Several colors were mixed from
the usable paint and distributed

A larger—than-expccted number
of people showed up to receive the

tribute it.

President Bush and Democrat
Bill Clinton mocked each oth-
er’s tax proposals yesterday as
Bush hunted for swing votes in
the Midwest and Clinton began
a Texas bus caravan. Republi-
cans took out ads along Clin-
ton’s route accusing him of be-
ing "in the back pocket” of trial

While beth presidential candi-
dates focused on economic
themes, a new Associated Press
poll conducted just after last
week‘s Republican convention
showed Americans more likely
to prefer Democrats when it
comes to the economy, educa-
tion and their own futures.

Bush, at a campaign stop in
St. Louis, acoused Clinton of ad
vancing protectionist trade poli-
cies. Clinton told a San Antonio.
Texas, rally that Bush‘s tax poli-
cies would benefit only the rich.

"This administration‘s sole
obsession is keeping taxes low
on the wealthiest Americans,"
Clinton said as he teamed up
with running mate Al Gore for
one more bush tour, their fourth.

While Clinton and Gore
worked Bush's adopted home.

Bush, Clinton mock
each other’ s tax plans

As he campaigned in Texas,
Clinton promised to revive the
nation’s lagging economy and
ridiculed Bush's promise of a
broad tax cut if he wins a sec-
ond term.

Clinton said that Congress
had passed legislation providing
modest middle class tax relief as
well as incentives for American
businesses but that Bush had ve-
toed it because it raised taxes on

began running newspaper ads in
Texas cities along the roate of
Clinton‘s latest bus tour con-
tending the nation’s trial law-
yers were attempting a “takeo-

The centerpiece of the ads is a
recent letter from Arkansas
Trial Lawyers Association Pres-
ident David H. Williams urging
fellow trial lawyers to “dig
down deep and give to Bill Clin‘
ton” and boasting of influence
with the Democratic nominee.

sors, striving to understand what's



turf, the president campaigned in
Missouri and Ohio —— two states
he narrowly carried in 1988 and
which are now regarded as key
battlegrounds by both sides.

After touring a factory in St.
Louis that makes police sirens,
many of which are sold lntema-
tionally, Bush accused Clinton
of wanting to tax foreign invest-
ment and waffling on support
for expanded trade with Mexico.

“Gov. Clinton hopes to ex.
ploit the darker impulses of this
uncertain age, fear of the future,
fear of the unknown, tear of for.
eigners,” Bush said. “I know his
reputation for opportunism .
the kind of guy who will do any-
thing or say anything for politi-
cal gain.”

“I guess as a candidate you
can be on both sides of every
question,” Bush said. “As prcsi»
dent, you can’t."

Clinton has proposed that for-
eign-owned companies pay tax-
es on profits made from their
US. operations, contending it
would put them on an even foot-
ing with all-U.S. companies.

Clinton said Bush’s attack on
his proposal was “ridiculous.”

“I don’t think American com-
panies should pay more of their
income in taxes than foreign
companies who do the same
business here. All I want is fair-

UK residence halls begin
another recycling program


By Paul Kelly
Contributing Writer


A new recycling program began
this fall for all students living in
UK residence balls.

The idea for the program origi-
nated last fall. when students asked
members of the Residence Hall As-
sociation and Residence Hall Gov-
ernment why there wasn‘t a recy-
cling program in campus housing.

RIIA polled studean last semes—
ter and found that the students
wanted a recycling program and
would pay $2 a semester to subsi-
dize one.

The program recycles aluminum
cans, newspapers. plastic contain-
ers and white paper and computer
paper. Four collection containers
are provided to keep the materials

“The way that the (program)
works is that the students just take
their trash and put it in whichev-
er respective container it belongs
in." said Tracy Diamond. chair-
woman of the new student recy-
cling committee. “llousing goes to
that container and empties it every-

In an attempt to make the pro.
gram easier for students. the recy-
cling bins will be placed on individ-
ual floors in some residence halls
and in the lobby when bins are not
available for the floors.

“The recycling program was
done on a test basis in Blazer Hall
for this summer. It seemed to go
real well." said Ron Dennis, assist-
ant director of housing.

The program should be in full
swing by mid-September.

Sword-wielding demonstrators in

downtown Baghdad shouted
“Down with Bush! Down with Im-
perialism!" during a moniing

protest march several hours before
the ban took effect.
