How conveyancing is able to make effective property transaction?
Other outbursts of silliness as the 1998 legislative session draw to a close: property valuation expert is able to make stress less property transaction. The new ''CATS'': Supporters of House Bill 53, which would create a new test for Kentucky schools, are playing up the fact that the exam will have the same name as the popular sports teams at a certain university. The test will be called the Commonwealth Accountability Testing System. Or CATS.
 

At a rally in the Capitol earlier this week, proponents of the test eagerly handed out blue-and-white ''Go CATS'' placards left over from the University of Kentucky Wildcats' victory game over Duke University in the NCAA basketball tournament last Sunday. (House Speaker Jody Richards, whose district includes Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, said he tried to come up with a name in which the acronym spelled "Hilltoppers.'' That was just too cumbersome to work, he said.) A few days later, on the Senate floor, Sen. Nick Kafoglis launched into an impromptu cheer for the new CATS as lawmakers were about to approve the test.

''Gimme a "C!" Kafoglis shouted, his right arm punching the air like a cheerleader trying to stir up support for the home team. Not everyone is thrilled at the comparison between CATS and the 'Cats. Sen. Vernie McGaha, R-Russell Springs, read a letter he received from a man who wanted to know if the state was deliberately trying to turn kids against UK sports. That's what will happen if the new test turns out to be as unpopular as its predecessor, the man wrote. Save puppies, not people: Sen. Dan Seum offered a telling commentary on society this week.

The Senate voted Tuesday to make lethal injection the primary method of execution for prisoners on Death Row in Kentucky. Lawmakers also are considering a bill on animal euthanasia. Seum, a Louisville Democrat, said he has been bombarded with phone calls about the doggie bill. ''I've gotten 481 messages to save the animals - zero for the humans,'' he said. No Pap smear, please: The award for the week's quickest comeback line goes to Sen. Julie Rose, who managed to make her male colleagues squirm uncomfortably in their seats.

During this week's debate on health insurance, Sen. Rose, a Lousiville Republican, spoke out on the Senate floor in favor of an amendment that would let women with health plans choose a provider for routine women's health services, such as Pap smears and mammograms. Sen. Gerald Neal, a Louisville Democrat who handled the bill on the floor, objected, saying the proposal provides a service to women that is not available to men.
