RRR We read that over 800 Ken- tuckians died last year on our roads and highways. Many lives could be saved every year if more people took a few sec- onds to buckle up. And/n) fact, we heard a report thatff one is involved in an accidefft and does not have seat belts buckled, it's another fine! RRR A small boy was sent to bed by his father. Five minutes later... "Da-ad..." What?" "I'm thirsty. Can you bring me a drink of water?" "No. You had your chance. Lights out...and if you ask again, H1 spank you." Five minutes later... "D!! aaaa-aaaad..." ~;-HAT!"

Go home and show her you are the boss." Of course the husband takes the doctor's advice. He rushes home, slams the door, shakes his fist in his wife's face, and growls, "From now on, you are taking orders from me. I want my sup- per right now, and when you get it on the table, go upstairs, and lay out my best clothes. Tonight, I'm going out with the boys and you are going to stay at home where you belongY "And another thing...Do you know who's going to comb my hair, adjust my pants and then tie my bow tie?" "I certainly do," says his wife calmly, "The undertaker.~ Review One of the biggest issues of the General Assembly's 2002 session landed in the Senate last week after House members wrapped up their work on the next Ker/- tucky budget. Now it's the Senate's turn to scrutinize the $14.4 billion two-year spending plan and make whatever changes necessary to ensure the measure reflects the priorities of the people we represent. Senate budget hearings are already underway. With less than 15 working days until the end of the legislative session, the fights in the State Capitol will be burning late into the night as we dig into the budget and make sure the final spending plan is structurally sound. In doing so, we21 some challenges unlike those we've faced in recent years. The na- tional economic slowdown has caused shortfalls in many states across the nation, and Kentucky is no exception. As a result, the budget in its current form gener- ally maintains, but doesn't in- creases spending for state govern- ment programs and services. It also doesn't include spending for capital construction projects. During its journey through the House, the budget largely re- mained consistent with the governor's original proposal. The biggest departure from the governor's plan is in the area of raises for achers. The governor had proposed making school dis- tricts pick up the tab for teacher raises during the first year of the budget cycle. That requirement was removed from the budget due to concerns that finally strapped school districts would be forced to cut student programs to fund the teacher raises. Instead, the budget calls for the state to pro- vide a 1.6 percent teacher pay in- crease in 2003 and a 2.7 percent increase in 2004. School districts that can afford to add the pay raises for their children are en- couraged to do so. While the budget is now a major focus of our work, we're still plugging away on a number of other important issues. Last week we approved legislation aimed at improving the number of minority teachers and admin- istrators in Kentucky schools. Senate Bill 167 would require school beards, commissions and councils to regularly review data regarding the minority and gen- der composition of school person- nel to determine if there is ad- equate representation.
