Paul Patton said he generally favors continuing the research program's funding. Patton says attracting scientists worthwhile He favors program of 'bucks for brains' By DICK KAUKAS The Courier-Journal On a re-election campaign swing through Louisville yesterday, Gov. Paul Patton said he'd like to budget $200 million more over the next four years to continue a "bucks for brains" program to lure research scientists to Kentucky. , While he made it clear he wasn't making any promises, he said he generally favors continuing the funding, which started last year when the legislature approved a non-continuing expenditure of $100 million for the effort. "There is a difference between 'I'd like to do something,' and 'I will do something,' " Patton said. "It is too early for me to begin making commitments on what 1 would propose." He added, however, that providing a total of $300 million in university research dollars the $100 million already budgeted and $200 million in the future "will be very high on my priorities of things we will try and get in the next budgets." The first $100 million was divided between the University of Kentucky, which was to receive two-thirds, and the University of Louisville, which was to get a third. The money is contingent on the schools' coming up with matching contributions. At a private reception at the Jewish Hospital Rudd Heart and Lung Center, Patton met Matthew Scott, the patient who received the first hand transplant in the United States at the hospital on Jan. 25. As Scott and his wife, Dawn, posed with the governor for photos, reporters asked how he was doing. Scott replied that he was "feeling good." . His left arm was still in a protective brace and sling, and there was no redness or discoloration visible on his fingers. Scott's doctors said that he was recovering as expected and that there are no signs his body is rejecting the hand. In his physical therapy sessions, Scott has started using his left hand to pick up lightweight objects, such as pieces of plastic foam. Patton, who is unopposed in the May 25 primary, spent most of the day in Louisville, starting with a breakfast with labor leaders at the Executive Inn and including a fund-raising lunch at the Jefferson Club. During the news conference, Patton said that if the "bucks for brains" funding does reach a total of $300 million, "we will have elevated the commonwealth of Kentucky into a totally new sphere." i He stressed the importance of medical care and treatment, saying, "Health in our society has come to be perhaps one of the most valued things our society has access to." Henry Wagner, president of Jewish Hospital HealthCare Services, said in an interview after the briefing that he hopes that the added $200 million will become a reality. Although the downtown medical center "is a $2 billion-a-year enterprise," Wagner said, "all the money's spoken for. So as we try to expand and develop new agendas, such as research, we're sort of broke." Within the next three to five years, he said, the center will try to increase its research budget, which now totals $25 million, to about $60 million. The research would be paid for by grants brought in by the endowed professors recruited with "bucks for brains" funds. Pointing out that some schools like ' Duke University in North Carolina have annual research budgets of about $200 million, Wagner said, "We have a long way to go. 5 6 BIPK.C WOO Onec ill XwCemetery Space mm thtk&ulmj Whti One Space is PurtluMti jl RtgiilarOusl Through March 20th Only Pre-needont, $1.00 space per family K.jiara tiTHfcif .saw, a.
