     AN ACT relating to the Kentucky Long-Term Policy Research Center.
     Amend KRS 7B.060 to establish that the purpose of the Long-Term Policy Research Center is to provide decision-makers a broader context in which to make decisions, considering the long-term implications of policy, critical trends, and emerging issues which may impact the state; require a quadrennial, rather than a biennial, report on long-term trends affecting the Commonwealth, to be completed every four years beginning with December 31, 2006; authorize period studies that may include alternative futures for the state, rather than require a report on alternative futures; permit, rather than require, the studies to include the potential long-term effects of current trends and policies and to identify future policy options; require the center to continually inform policymakers and the public, rather than just the public, on long-term issues, critical trends, and alternative futures; require the center to maintain databases for trend identification instead of to develop a single database; amend KRS 7B.070 to direct that study findings and policy options, rather than recommendations, be transmitted to the Governor and the Legislative Research Center; make various amendments to conform.
