Remarks by Speaker Schultz

We have been preparing for this session-the first annual
session of the Florida Legislature-for a long time. Our
state government had become weakened to the point of
anemia, it could not cope with the problems of today's
rapidly changing society. In the past two years, we have
revitalized this government.. with a new Constitution, a
reorganization of the executive branch, new power and



responsibility to local governments, and most important,
the creation of a modern legislature. In other words, we
have changed the system, and this has been done with one
goal in mind-to make government more responsive to the
people.



SE



OF REPRESENTATIVES April 7, 1970

Now the young radicals who complain about an en-
trenched establishment better take a look at what is going
on in the institution of Florida government. In case they
don't recognize it, that's change. The system, the structure,
whatever you want to call it-has been responding to NOW.
And I don't believe we can speak this truth too loudly, too
often.

The time of preparation was difficult-testing our endur-
ance, patience and wisdom.

Each of you has made a contribution and without your
effort we would not be where we are. For this you are to
be commended, but let me sound a word of caution-there
is still much to be done and many trying times lie ahead.

First and foremost, will be the question of money and
priorities. Those changes we effected in the last legislature
are already producing gratifying results. Budgeting and
appropriations is now a continual process. Zero-base bud-
geting requires agencies to justify current spending as well
as future needs.

The growing expertise and knowledge of the Appropria-
tions Committee members has enabled us to come up with
some 50 million dollars which we did not foresee a year
ago. This is money which will be available for new
programs.

Admitted, part of this new money is due to early low
revenue estimates, but let's be frank with ourselves-
continual scrutiny of spending helped improve the state's
fiscal picture to the point where we will not need
additional taxes this year. This watchdog activity will
continue and become more effective as our measuring stick
of performance improves.

Economy in spending and efficiency of operations has
become a byword of this legislature. We are here looking
over the executive shoulder-something they will have to
accept and endure. A once-over-lightly every two years was
not enough-those days are past.

The needs and desires of Floridians are extremely
complex. This is my interpretation of Florida's needs-as 1
hear the people speaking.

EDUCATION-Unfortunately, the quality of education a
Florida child receives now depends largely on where that
child lives. Therefore it is absolutely essential we develop
greater equity in our formula for distributing state dollars.
Equity means bringing the poorer counties up to a state
average-but not at the expense of other counties. No
county must lose to benefit another.

Just as the institution of government has changed, I
believe you will see the institution of education undergo
dramatic change. We wouldn't recognize today's school
compared to our own experience. It is unreasonable,
indefensible, to expect schools to remain static. We might
as well throw away our typewriters, our computer here and
hire some stenographers with quill pens. It's the same in
our schools.

So, I regard it as absolutely essential that there be change



for the better. We aimed in that direction last year with
passage of an Education Research and Development Act.
This year, let's guarantee its success by allocating the
money needed to fund that research. Some of the outstand-
ing educators in the United States are active in this










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE C



program, working now on Florida's problems. It is unique
in the nation, and if properly used, gives us the potential to
be first in education in the decade of the 70's.

Another problem in the area of education is the issue of
forced busing which in recent weeks has been thrust on
Florida's school systems. The vast majority of Floridians
opposed forced busing as wasteful and inefficient. However,
as we deliberate this highly complex issue, it is of utmost
importance that our actions reflect concern for the ultimate
welfare of the children involved and their right to have a
good education.

CONSERVATION-Nothing is more essential to a man's
very existence, yet more taken for granted than clean water
and clean air. We have suddenly, and fortunately, I might
add, begun to realize that even these things can be used up.
We've added new words to our vocabulary such as
"ecology, biosphere, pollutant." We must take effective
action now to protect our waters and our air. We must
have modern sewage and waste disposal systems for every
city in Florida.

I recommend the legislature put before the people a
constitutional amendment to allow the state to place its
full faith and credit behind local bond issues. Such a move,
together with available Federal matching funds will enable
many county and city sewage agencies to move ahead in
this critical area of pollution control. The situation is acute
and it may require the expenditure of more than two
billion dollars before we finally meet Florida's sewage
disposal problems.

ROADS-a major state obligation. Since the last session,
our Transportation and Appropriation committees have
been stymied in every attempt to determine how much
money the Department of Transportation has available and
what it plans to build. What we have learned is the
Department is stacking up money faster than it can be
spent. Political manipulation and inept management have
strangled construction while our road needs continue to
soar in every section of Florida.

So, before we talk about raising additional money for the
Department of Transportation, we must insist that improve-
ments are forthcoming in that Department.

There must be a certified public accountant in charge of
the bookkeeping system-someone who knows how to keep
track of the funds and can tell us where they are spent or
allocated. At the moment, this is almost impossible. Then,
we must insist on effective management that will guarantee
a smooth flow of projects to areas where the needs are
greatest.

To accomplish this and many more. needed improve-
ments, I support a return to a group-decision-making
process similar to the former State Road Board.

In the meantime, cities and counties are strangling in
traffic and are ready to build their own roads if they had
the funds. As an immediate solution, I recommend the first
penny of the seven cent gasoline tax be applied to these
critical needs.

Half of that penny should be allocated to cities on the
basis of population and the remaining 50 per cent should
be spent to purchase right of way, relieving counties of that



burden. A good example of the latter is right here in Leon
County where no secondary money is available because of
right of way acquisition.



April 7, 1970



compensation to offset inflation. We cannot neglect our
duty to establish standards of collective bargaining for
public employees. We must deny them the right to strike,
but on the other hand, we must provide procedures for
solving grievances if we are to avoid serious breakdowns.



)F REPRESENTATIVES 3

Cities and counties throughout the state would put these
idle funds to work immediately, if they could get their
hands on them. Let's quit dillydallying around and put
these funds to work where they can do some good. Once
the situation in the Department of Transportation is
straightened out, we can then determine if additional tax
dollars are needed.

CRIME AND DRUG ABUSE-These are problems that
affect almost every American in some manner and can no
longer be attacked by antiquated methods. New approaches
are necessary if we are to combat this growing problem. We
must begin by improving our local law enforcement
branches through state supplements to police departments,
like the minimum foundation program in our educational
system.

Since the majority of those entering prison are eventually
released, we must change our attitude toward the penal
system to reflect emphasis on rehabilitation rather than
punishment.

The man or woman who has been sentenced to our state
penal institutions must be released in an atmosphere that
will encourage him to be a productive member of society
rather than return to crime. This means more emphasis on
vocational training, job assistance, work release programs
and half-way houses.

Justice delayed is justice denied, thus the pressing need
for a constitutional amendment to improve the administra-
tion of our courts. This will complete the task of
revitalizing our state government to correspond with the
improvements already made in the executive and legislative
branches.

The drug epidemic which is upon us will require
education, rehabilitation and effective law enforcement.
Our young people today are intelligent. They are not
impressed with "adult snow jobs" on the evils of drug
abuse. We must carefully research the facts and utilize these
facts in an appealing education program.

For those already caught in the misery of drug abuse, we
must provide community located care and rehabilitation
therapy, as opposed to in-patient treatment which has
proven costly and unproductive.

These are the major areas to work on this Session. But
others should be mentioned-if only to reinforce the
magnitude of the job facing us.

You are called upon to revise the state insurance and
election laws. Ad valorem taxation reform must be accom-
plished, and some relief provided for those over 65 by an
increase in homestead exemption.

Other needs of the senior citizens must be met such as
stricter regulation of nursing homes and improved public
transportation enabling them to shop, to visit and remain
independent.

In the field of labor law, we need to increase workmen's










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



The tort claims act removing sovereign immunity must be
made workable or allowed to expire. Other areas requiring
our attention include a policy for state-owned land and the
right of 18 year olds to vote.

More than three dozen newsmen from every area of
Florida report the activities of this legislature. What you do
today is known this afternoon or tomorrow from Pensacola
to Key West. Never has communication of government
operations been so thorough and complete.

Therefore, this MUST be a session of action and
productivity. The problems have outlined before us in
dramatic fashion-it is our responsibility to come up with
the right answers.

We have the modern tools at hand. You are talented and
know how to use them. The key word is WORK. We must
be prepared to show the people a record of achievement.
They will not accept excuses.

The eyes of the 49 other states are focused on Florida.
They have followed closely our progress in administering to
our government. The Florida Legislature is being cited by
experts all over the nation as an example, the model, the
goal for other states. With this attention, this spotlight, we
must perform-we are in center stage.

There is no time to rest on our laurels. As a matter of
fact, there is no time to rest on anything. Let's get on with
the task.

Thank you.

On motion by Mr. Sessums, the foregoing remarks by the
Speaker were ordered spread upon the Journal.



Messages from the Senate
The Honorable Frederick H. Schultz
Speaker, House of Representatives



April 7, 1970



I am directed to inform the House of Representatives that
the Senate has adopted-
HCR 1-ORG.
Respectfully,
Edwin G. Fraser
Secretary of the Senate
The concurrent resolution, contained in the above message,
was ordered enrolled.



Introduction and Reference
The references by the Speaker of automatically profiled bills
to committees and to the Calendar were made upon the
recommendation of the Committee on Rules & Calendar
adopted at its March 2, 1970 meeting, as set forth in the
following Report:



The Honorable Frederick H. Schultz
Speaker, House of Representatives



March 2, 1970



Sir:
Your Committee on Rules & Calendar begs leave to report
and recommend the following recommendations for your
consideration:



OF REPRESENTATIVES April 7, 1970


1. That all bills and joint resolutions passed by the House
and returned from the Senate without action having been
completed there before sine die adjournment (with certain
exceptions later noted) be placed at the top of the Regular
Calendar in the order in which they passed the House.
2. That all bills and joint resolutions on the Regular Calendar
at sine die adjournment (with certain exceptions later noted) be
restored to the Calendar in that order (rather than in their
numerical order).
3. That all bills and joint resolutions whose return has been
asked by committees of original reference be returned to those
committees.
4. That all bills and joint resolutions which were withdrawn
from the Committees on Ad Valorem Taxation, Appropriations,
or Finance & Taxation by a point of order and placed on the
Regular Calendar be returned to those Committees.
5. That all automatically prefiled bills carrying an appropria-
tion, including those which passed the House during the 1969
Regular Session and were returned from the Senate without
action having been completed there, shall be returned to the
Committee on Appropriations. The purpose is to allow the
Committee on Appropriations and the House to again complete
consideration of the General Appropriations Bill prior to taking
up any special appropriations.
6. That bills and joint resolutions which passed the House
with amendments be reintroduced in the name of the original
sponsor in the engrossed language. (If this is accepted, the Clerk
will have these bills reprinted in the engrossed language for
Member bill books, with a notation to the effect that
amendments were adopted by the House in 1969.)
7. That Committee Substitutes from the 1969 Regular
Session be introduced and given first reading by that name,
ignoring the original bill.
8. That the carryover bills and joint resolutions from the
1969 Regular Session constitute the bills and joint resolutions
to be read on the first day of the 1970 Regular Session, and
that the remaining profiled measures be given first reading on
succeeding legislative days at the rate of 75 per day.
A quorum of the Committee was present in person, and a
majority of those present agreed to the above Report.
Respectfully submitted,
E. C. Rowell
Chairman, Committee on
Rules & Calendar

The Speaker had, on March 3, directed the Clerk to execute
the recommendations of the Committee on Rules & Calendar
except as to the reading of profiled bills, the scheduling of the
Joint Session having made it possible to introduce more bills on
the first day than originally would have been feasible.

HB 4-Withdrawn

Committee to the Governor

On motion by Mr. Matthews, the President appointed
Senators Johnson, Reuter and Stolzenburg, and the Speaker
appointed Representatives Matthews, Savage and Sweeny as a
joint committee to notify Governor Kirk that the Legislature

The committee retired, and presently returned escorting His
Excellency, Governor Claude R. Kirk, Jr.


Presentation of the Governor
The President then presented Governor Kirk, who addressed
the Joint Session as follows:

Governor's Address

Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, distinguished members of the
Legislature, Lieutenant Governor, members of the Cabinet,
Honorable Justices of the Supreme Court, my fellow
Floridians:

Ninety-seven days ago, on January 1, Floridians stepped
across the threshold into a new decade. Not just another
decade, not just another landmark in time, but a decade
which will surely go down in history as the decade of
Florida's fulfillment.

It required a span of 437 years-from 1513 when Ponce
de Leon first waded shore near Saint Augustine until
1950-for Florida's population to pass the 2.5 million
mark. But in just twenty years, since 1950, our population
has risen to nearly 6.5 million; and, in just five years, an
additional million will establish roots here.

Now, every Floridian is aware of those startling statistics
of our growth. The figures are obvious to each of us.

But who knows where we are as a result of that growth?

And, more important, who knows where we are going?

These are the questions I will consider with you today.
But the answers are hidden well below the surface, and the
examination I contemplate now can do little more than
scratch that surface. It will be up to you in the sixty days
ahead to probe to the very depths of those questions.

And the answers you develop and supply must come
forth not in terms of today, but of tomorrow, and
tomorrow's tomorrow.

With that in mind, I recommend to you a legislative
philosophy which in my mind is essential at this critical
point in time.

It is a philosophy of roll-forward planning.

The decade ahead is like a great tide. We know it is
coming, and we know it will come in spite of us. We may
look back with amazement at the last twenty years, but
even as we look back, we must realize that the real tide is
still before us.

And as Florida rolls forward to meet the tide, you must



adopt a corresponding roll-forward philosophy of legisla-
tion.

In this session, you must lay the groundwork, set the
guidelines, establish the monetary direction, and with force



SE (



)F REPRESENTATIVES April 7, 1970

and foresight, write long-range plans which will constantly
roll forward so that legislators and legislatures for decades
to come will function as centers of analysis to audit,
measure and constantly evaluate the forward progress along
the course this Legislature has charted.

This is the overriding merit and purpose of the annual
session concept. It is mistaken legislative philosophy to
assume that you must convene, for example, to write a new
road program each year. Or that each year you must
reorganize government, or restructure education. Instead,
you must approach this first annual session as an opportu-
nity to do it right the first time, and roll forward from
there.

And lest you chide me for repeating the obvious, lest you
think of these as empty words in pursuit of a hollow
challenge, let me remind you of the mistakes of decade
after decade of planning for today, with only a passing
recognition of some vague tomorrow.

Let me remind you of decade after decade of stop-gap,
catch-up government which, as we stand on the threshold
of fulfillment, is our unfortunate heritage.

This being the decade of fulfillment, then 1970, the
genesis of the decade, is most certainly the year of
decision. And just as certainly, every working moment of
this legislative decision will be a moment of crucial
decision.

And I ask you here and now to decide at the very
beginning that you will legislate not for today, but for
tomorrow. Not just for us, but for our children and our
children's children. For in the political intrigue, the
interplay, and the interworking of government, there is one
certain truism: a government which is not sensitive to the
future of its children is a corrupt government-corrupt not
in the criminal sense, but in the moral sense. And I know
there is not one among us who is not sensitive to the
future of our children.

With that in mind, I suggest that it would not be
immodest of you to think of yourselves in the sixty days
ahead in roles not unlike those who signed the Declaration
of Independence, or as framers of America's first Constitu-
tion. Think of yourselves as modern-day Washingtons,
Franklins, or Jeffersons, as you would envision them then,
thinking of what America might be today.


Washington, Franklin and Jefferson are remembered
today because they were planners for tomorrow.

Now, this is not idle rhetoric aimed at glorifying this
Legislature. For, in truth, these great men served during the
genesis of our nation, just as you are serving in the genesis
of the greatest decade in Florida history. Indeed, your
positions are remarkably similar.

Again, I will repeat the obvious: it is impossible to
overstate the vast difference between this point in Florida
history and any point that has come before it.

Last year, for example, you were faced with the



relatively difficult task of remaking state government. And
you made a laudable beginning.

But the gigantic reorganization task of last year is but a
shadow-a wisp of fog-alongside the mountain of chal-









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



lenge, the moments of crucial decision, which will confront
you in this session.

Reorganization was, in a sense, paper work. Now you
must cope with the awesome task of people work, a task
compounded by the compelling urgency of the coming tide.

This year, you must not only accurately identify our
direction, but you must provide the means for your
successors throughout the decade to measure the direction
you have identified and charted.

First, however, you must come to grips with the
questions.

Lincoln was another American who lived by a roll-
forward philosophy. In 1858, he made this point, and I
quote:

"If we could first know where we are, and whither we
are tending, we could better judge what to do, and how to
do it."

In other words:

Where are we?

Where are we going?

And if we are to discover where we are, we must find the
answers to a host of questions.

For example, can anyone tell us how many jobs we must
find so that every job-ready high school graduate will be
assured of employment?

Can anyone tell us how many classrooms we will need
ten years hence?

Or how many teachers?

Can the Department of Education really tell us what
happens to the 35,000 youngsters who enter but never
emerge from our education structure?

Can anyone tell us how many children are reading at the
level they should be?

Can anyone tell us what our overall transportation needs
will be just ten years from now?

Or how many Troopers we will need, and where will we
need them most?

Or how many state law enforcement officers will be
adequate to wage war on crime ten or even only five years
hence?

Can anyone give us an honest answer to either of those
relatively fundamental questions? Right now, the answer is
no; and right now, it's time for a little candid talk about
the planning function in state government.

For nearly all of our history, Florida's leadership has paid
little or no attention to planning. Until very recently,
planning has been the unwanted, unnoticed stepchild of
government.



Two years ago, the Legislature gave Florida its first
planning agency, under the Cabinet. Nine months ago, the



governmental reorganization act put this agency--a bureau
in the Department of Administration-under the Governor.

Some ask, just as I have asked, where is the plan ... what
should Florida be ... how can we get there? We ask this of
this tiny unit buried in the midst of our bureaucracy. We
expect an answer. But we-you and me-have not provided
the necessary guidance.

It is not the roll of career employees to determine such
vital questions. These are matters to be pondered by the
people's representatives. The planning goals must be estab-
lished by you and by me, and then we can seek
implementation plans from our planning agency.

Let us develop a roll-forward plan by establishing
Florida's goals at the highest level by those who best know
the needs and desires of our people, the elected representa-
tives of the people.
And certainly within the framework of where we are and
where we are going, you must consider the cost of
government and the demonstrated inability of government
to solve every problem which confronts it.

It is axiomatic that the cost of government has and will
continue to go up. It is equally axiomatic that the list of
problems unsolved or even remotely touched by govern-
ment is growing longer.

A third certainty is-and I think we can be unanimous
about this-people have, for the moment, had it with taxes,
until they can see evidence of visible services in equal
return for their tax-invested dollar.

Which brings us to a philosophical question and to
another major decision I hope you are willing to make here
and now.
Philosophically speaking, if we hold the first two axioms
to be evident, then we must conclude that we can no
longer follow the same old line of least resistance. History
has shown us that most problems of government cannot be
solved by smothering them with more tax dollars.

Just as we have learned that you cannot put out fire with
gasoline, so, too, should we have learned that the capacity
of government is strictly limited by the capacity of the
taxpayer. And for those of you who would chide me for
simplicity, let me point out that this seemingly obvious fact
still has not been learned by many in government.

Therefore, I hope each of you will join with me today in
making a hard decision. Even as we stand just inside the
threshold of our greatest decade; even as we scan the
endless list of problems; even as we begin to identify,
reshape and mold our direction, I hope you will decide-
here and now-to hold the line on taxes.

It is time for a new approach.

The federal government, under the New Federalism
concept, is completely in tune with the principle that the
capacity of government is limited. Indeed, in just one year,
the direction of the federal government has been turned
one hundred eighty degrees from the smother-it-with-
government approach of the past. Obviously, if the federal
colossus can do it, so, too, can you.



Recognizing that government cannot solve everything,
you must concern yourselves with priorities. The immediate

priorities, of course, but more importantly, the priorities as
we see them for the full decade. Not until you have
identified all of the obvious priorities for all of the decade
will you have set aside the stop-gap philosophy of legisla-
tion only for today.

This should be your new approach and, as obvious as it
may sound, let me remind you that it has never been done
before.

If this Legislature did nothing more than provide for the
obvious immediate necessities in the first ten days of this
session and then spent the remainder of the session
establishing priorities and charting plans for the decade
before us, it would rightfully go down in the books as the
greatest Legislature in history.

In your defense, ladies and gentlemen, I would like to
say to the people of Florida that "this is not an easy
approach. No group is ever subjected to so much pressure
as a Legislature in formal session. Every agency head, every
department of government, will beg and cajole for more
money.

"Education, for example, pleads for hundreds of millions
of more dollars. Universities want more money; prisons
want more money; the road people want more money.

"Everyone wants more money.

"But your legislator and this Legislature has got to say
no. And when he says no, he should be able to do so in
the knowledge that you will back him up."

The choice of the Legislature is limited. Either we will
have a balanced budget and establish long-range priorities,
or we will have new taxes.

Now, the second question, "Where are we going?", is
linked directly to the priority approach to the new decade.

Again, you will have to decide where we are going and
chart our course by law. And again, as Chief Executive, I
can offer you my recommendations.

First, the budget.

Eight weeks ago, I transmitted to you my budget
recommendations for the coming fiscal year. In itself, that
fact alone is a significant departure from the days of old,
for it marks the first time that a Chief Executive submitted
a budget he could truly call his own; that he alone could
be responsible for.

Governmental reorganization, which you accomplished
last year, has changed the system; and the budget now
before you is the first Governor's recommended budget for
Florida, yours to agree with or criticize, as you see fit, and
to return to me in final form.

My budget recommendation, then, is the largest single
package of suggested legislation you will receive from me;
for while it deals primarily with dollars, it is a direct
reflection of my philosophy for 1970, of my hopes and
thoughts for the direction we will take in this year of



genesis.

At the outset, the budget I recommended to you is a
balanced budget which holds the line on taxes. And while
my budget recommends an increase of 103.5 million dollars



USE



OF REPRESENTATIVES April 7, 1970

in operational general revenue spending over last year, it is
a reflection of the principle outlined earlier that govern-
ment simply cannot smother every problem with tax
dollars. Accordingly, I trimmed 313.5 millions of dollars
from the operating and capital outlay requests of state
agencies, most of which was not fat, mind you, but again, a
reflection of the priority approach which is so essential to
the beginning of this decade.

I have recommended to you a budget of 1.18 billions of
dollars from the General Revenue Fund, and I strongly urge
you to adopt it.

In addition, I have recommended 60 millions of dollars in
capital outlay spending for construction, an increase of 56
millions of dollars over last year. Again, I strongly urge that
you adopt my capital outlay recommendation.

As I pointed out earlier, many of my legislative recom-
mendations are set forth in the budget in terms of
increased or decreased appropriations for the various func-
tions of state government.

For example, my budget recommends increases of 38
percent for highway traffic enforcement, 226 percent for
combatting beach erosion, 54 percent for our state-wide
crime-fighting force, 86 percent for water management
programs, an increase of 51 million for education, and 23
million for the Medicaid program, to list a few.

Obviously, the relative degrees of these increases are
reflections of my hopes for the direction we will pursue in
1970.

I would like to turn now from the budget and into areas
of specific suggestions for your consideration.

Education

For one thousand, one hundred and eighty-nine days,
since January 3, 1967, I have begged and pleaded for
top-to-bottom structural change in education.

Today marks another day, and I will urge it again.

Nowhere in state government is there a better argument
against the smother-it-with-dollars approach than in our
present structure of education. Nowhere is there a better
argument for the priority approach. Nowhere is there a
better argument for spending a few hours to fund the
essentials of today, while you spend the remaining days and
weeks on the much more important task of restructuring
education for the decade ahead.

Just as he has in years gone by, the Commissioner of
Education cries out for hundreds of millions more dollars.

But we must ask ourselves, for what? For quality
education? Not on your life!

We cannot buy quality education when the basic organi-
zational structure is itself without quality. To imply
otherwise is to mislead our children.

And so, again, I find myself pleading. I urge you to waste



not one minute on loud cries, for it is easy to cry out for
more millions. Let the Commissioner instead go to the
people in the months ahead and attempt to sell them on
another 200 million dollars for a broken-down structure. Or
better still, let the Department of Education come forward



- --- - -- -- -- -









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



not with anguished cries for money, but with innovative
ideas for restructuring education.

I plead with you to concentrate on education for the
decade. The alternative is to pump more and more money
into an obsolete system which, in the absence of restructur-
ing, will be just as obsolete and many more times as
expensive at the end of the decade.

Think if you will of the eighth and ninth grader, who has
reached the beginning point of "PUSHOUT," "KICKOUT,"
and "SQUEEZE OUT." Ask the eighth or ninth grade
"PUSHOUT" victim, and he or she will tell you that school
is not relevant. You cannot purchase relevancy with money
when the system itself is so totally irrelevant.

Education must have its priorities. Certainly, the very
basic element of learning to read should be restored to the
highest priority position it once enjoyed. Educators tell us
that a primary reason for "PUSHOUT" is the problem of
reading; that school would be more relevant to the
"PUSHOUT" victim if he had earlier developed his reading
skills as he rolled forward year after year. Again, I suggest
to you that 200 million more dollars has nothing to do
with reading.

Perhaps even a higher priority for your consideration is
an appointive Commissioner. In a few moments, I will
discuss with you legislation in that regard which I will
recommend to you. We simply must have an appointive
Commissioner, whether he be appointed by the Governor,
by a board, by the Legislature, or even another authority. I
feel so strongly about this that I will accept practically any
method of achieving this that you may develop.

It is equally important that you devise a system for
evaluating teachers, and for providing them with incentive
pay. And certainly, no system of grading should overlook
the children as the most accurate source of grading. Most
children have a keen, unerring ability to recognize good
teaching and bad teaching, and this is another reason why
children cannot be misled into believing that quality
education can be purchased.

A program of mandatory career readiness is another
priority for the decade ahead. Career readiness is complete-
ly relevant, and it can be phased in and implemented on a
beginning basis within the existing budget. The Department
of Education, again exercising the smother-it-with-dollars
approach, has what it calls an eight hundred million
program for career readiness. In my mind, it is a dollar
ninety-eight plan with an 800 million dollar price tag. I tell
you now that I categorically reject it, and I urge you to
waste no time in discarding it.

Returning to the subject of reading, you will recall I
suggested that one of the questions pertinent to the decade
is how many students are reading at the level they should
be. Conversely, how many are not? These are not idle
questions, and I recommend that you enact a statute
requiring annual reports to the Legislature of reading level
achievements of each grade. These reports will provide you
and your successors with one true vehicle by which the
Legislature can measure, audit, and evaluate-in roll-forward
fashion-the relevancy and relative progress of Florida
education.



In line with restructuring, I have transmitted to the
minority leadership of the House and Senate, to be
introduced for your consideration, a package of fourteen



bills in two categories, bills relating to educational organiza-
tion, and bills relating to programs.

It is a package of beginning reform; some of it is new,
some of it I have suggested before.

In the first category, organizational reform:

-A Constitutional amendment to create a Florida Educa-
tion Commission of seven members; three from the
Public School Board; two from the Junior College
Board; two from the Board of Regents. Each member
would serve for seven years, and the Commission would
assume the responsibilities of the present State Board of
Education.

-A Constitutional amendment providing for an appointed
State Commissioner of Education, to be appointed by
the Florida Education Commission.

-A bill to re-establish the Florida Public School Board as
the governing board of Divisions of Elementary and
Secondary Education.

-A bill establishing a State Junior College Board as a
governing board for the Division of Junior Colleges.

-A bill changing the name of the Division of Vocational
Education to the Division of Career Readiness.

-A Constitutional amendment providing for appointed
school superintendents in each school district, to be
appointed by the district school boards; and it is my
hope, of course, that school districts can correspond
with Congressional Districts.

-A bill to establish a commission to examine the
feasibility of combining school districts.

And in the category of program reform:

-A package of seven bills creating task forces to examine
regional education centers; to design a uniform individu-
al appraisal system; to establish liaison with industry in
developing and monitoring instructional designs and
systems; to develop guidelines facilitating contracts with
industry to accomplish specific instructional objectives;
to develop full mandatory career readiness throughout
the curriculum; establishing a higher education research
and development program; and establishing 25 research
and development assistanceships for advanced doctoral
students doing dissertations specifically related to Flor-
ida education priorities.

As you consider and develop a plan of education for the
decade to come, I urge you to keep in mind another
obvious statistic-one in which there is also another obvious
but unlearned lesson.

At our present rates, about 100,000 school children enter
the Florida school system at the first grade level each year.
But each year, only 65,000 are emerging from our school
system through graduation from the twelfth grade. The
obvious statistic is that 35,000 students have fallen along
the wayside somewhere along the line.

Now, the Department of Education has a glib once-over-



lightly explanation about that which even a trained actuary
would find difficult to comprehend. I strongly urge you to
pursue the answer to that question. Reduce it to the



11



April 7, 1970











JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



simplest common denominator, taking into account any
fancy footwork you may encounter from the Department
of Education, and determine for the first time just how
many children are falling alongside somewhere down the
road. If it is not 35,000, then how many is it? Half that?
One-third that? Find the answer to that and you will have
made a giant stride in the search for our direction.

I have already urged you to legislate not for today, but
for tomorrow. Nowhere is this so appropriate as in the field
of education.


Conservation and Natural Resources

Preserving our environment unquestionably is the greatest
challenge of the decade ahead. And in this session, you will
be faced with many moments of grave decision as you
consider legislation aimed at saving ourselves from our own
progress.

For those moments, I offer you this rule of thumb: if we
fail to preserve our natural resources, then we will be
nothing.

The preservation of our environment involves many
facets: combatting air pollution; combatting beach erosion;
oil spills; parks and recreation areas; sewer problems; water
management; the Everglades, to list but a few.

Throughout this session, I will come to you with
thoughts and ideas on resource conservation. Today, I will
begin with several specific recommendations in this area:

-I recommend you enact a bill establishing environ-
mental control authorities in specified areas of the state
to collect, treat and dispose of wastes. These authorities
will be responsible for providing sewage and garbage
disposal facilities with the long-range goal of centraliz-
ing these services and replacing the proliferation of
small, inefficient plants now in operation. This is an
example of planning for the decade.

-You should enact legislation permitting the Department
of Air and Water Pollution Control to employ its own
counsel. The polluters are in a position to hire
high-powered specialized defense attorneys, whereas this
new department has been hamstrung by the relatively
inexperienced counsel provided by the Attorney Gen-
eral's Office.

-I suggest an increase in the fines for violating Florida's
pollution laws from the present $1,000 maximum per
day to a maximum of $6,000 per day.

-In my budget message, I recommended an allocation of
$815,000 to combat beach erosion. The principal
culprit in the continuing loss of our beaches is the large
number of natural and man-made inlets on the Atlantic
and Gulf Coasts. My budget for this area reflects my
recommendation that state participation in beach ero-
sion prevention be increased to 50 percent of all
non-federal project cost.

-I further recommend that you give the Trustees of the
Internal Improvement Fund the authority and ability to
condemn and purchase privately-held submerged lands



that were sold, erroneously conveyed, and in some
cases, illegally conveyed under the outrageous Tuesday
land sales of the past. I suggest that this program can



be financed by increasing the cost of fill material sold
by the state to 50 cents a yard, the current rate in
private industry.

-Lieutenant Governor Osborne has developed and pub-
licly put forth a 14 point program dealing with oil
pollution. In the wake of the recent severe oil spills, his
proposal is certainly appropriate, and I strongly recom-
mend its enactment.

-In the past three years, we have increased our state
park system by nearly one-third, adding twenty-three
new parks and some 25,000 precious acres. But this is
only a beginning, and to assure a continuing momen-
tum, I recommend that you enact a Constitutional
amendment authorizing an additional 20 million dollars
in bonds for the purchase of parks and recreation areas
for the people. In my opinion, the present documentary
stamp surtax can fully support this bond issue.

-Last year, aquatic weed infestations resulted in an
estimated economic loss to Florida of 75 million
dollars. In my budget, I have allocated 1.3 million
dollars to combat these fish-killing, lake-and-river-
clogging, noxious weeds. This allocation can be financed
by boat license proceeds. I strongly urge that you leave
this appropriation intact.

-The controversy over the Jetport pointed out the
people's concern for the protection of the Everglades
National Park. We are the guardians of this great
wilderness for all Americans. The Big Cypress Water-
shed, which is the lifeline to the Everglades, must be
protected, and I will have recommendations to you
which will assure its preservation.

-Florida communities need to spend at least 1.8 billions
of dollars for sewage treatment facilities, simply in
order to keep pace with the growth of past decades and
the wave of the future. Obviously, they cannot raise the
money on their own. Consequently, I recommend still
another Constitutional amendment which would allow
the state to raise the necessary funds through the sale
of full faith and credit bonds, thus providing further
relief to our already over-burdened cities. Proceeds from
these bonds would be loaned to local governments and
would be repaid from revenues derived from those who
benefit directly from these services.

I urge the Members of this Legislature to carefully
consider the package of bills prepared and sponsored by
the organization known as "Conservation 70's." This
group represents the concerned people of Florida who
have recognized the threats to Florida's environment.
They have banded together in a nonpartisan effort.
Their bills cover the full spectrum of the natural
resource problems facing this state. C-70's represents a
new and refreshing approach which can be a meaningful
addition to the legislative session.



Roads and Highways

Roads are more than concrete and asphalt. They are the
backbone... the ribs and limbs.. the muscles of our state
and its commerce.



My position is well known to this Legislature. I have
called you into special session. You have been given a road
program for the future, developed by more than six



12



April 7, 1970











JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



thousand of your employees in the Department of Trans-
portation. And you have been given several alternates for
funding this program.
For your own reasons, you have rejected my proposals.
Is it because you believe there is no need?
If so, say so.
Is it because you believe there are deficiencies in the
program?
If so, say so, and offer reasonable alternatives.

Is it because you are reluctant to finance such a plan?

If so, say so.

And as an alternative put the necessary one-cent gasoline
tax on the ballot for a decision of the people.
I suggest to you that your committees have been at
work, hopefully developing your recommendations on
roads, despite some unproductive detours down the byways
of election reform.
Certainly, you must by now have a program of your
own. I look forward to seeing it, and I pledge to you, as I
have pledged before, my complete cooperation and support
for any program which will lead us out of the snarls and
congestion in which we now find ourselves.
I need not remind you of where we are now, and not
one of you can fail to grasp where we will be if you fail to
act.
Three goals must be kept firmly in mind as we develop a
road program:
-The desperate need to provide state resources to take
over the purchase of rights-of-way, not only to relieve
the counties of this monumental financial burden, but
also to provide the means of implementing long-range
planning. The capability to purchase the rights-of-way
will provide the state with the means for turning
long-range planning into a reality.
-A program to direct state resources at a well-defined
and documented overall transportation program for the
urban areas of our state. -And in this regard, if you
provide for an additional one cent, I would direct that
one-half cent be allocated for urban groupings of
50,000 or more.
-The beginning of a financing program for public
transportation... and providing the resources and plan-
ning for innovative approaches to public transportation
for the decades ahead.
Such ambitious programs demand top-flight leadership.
I have searched throughout the country to provide
Florida with another best possible Secretary of Transporta-
tion. His qualifications are before you now, and he is
standing in the wings waiting to go to work. I hope that his
confirmation will be the first order of business of the
Senate and the continuing of a roll-forward program of
transportation,

Governmental Reorganization

The comprehensive plan for reorganization which you
accomplished last year is off to a good start. It can be
improved, however, and I have a few specific recommenda-



tions for your consideration.
-The Department of Community Affairs, which was
created by reorganization, was given the responsibility



for the first Fire College in Ocala and the supervision of
the Fire Fighters Standards Council. Yet other func-
tions of government relating to fire protection were not
moved to this department. I recommend that the
functions of the State Fire Marshal and liquefied
petroleum regulation be transferred to the Department
of Community Affairs effective July 1, 1970.

-Another unit of government which should be moved to
provide for more effective operation is the financial
responsibility function. Primarily, enforcement of the
financial responsibility laws requires suspension of the
driver's license until insurance requirements are met.
This function can be most effectively carried out in the
Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, and
the duplication of records would be eliminated. I
recommend this transfer effective July 1, 1971.
-To clarify hazy areas of the reorganization law, I
further recommend that the law specifically provide
that the fiscal and personnel procedures of the Board of
Administration and of the Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission will come under the same control and
review applicable to other state agencies.

-I suggest that the reserved sign be taken off the
executive aircraft within the airplane pool. The pool
concept approved by you last year cannot operate if
most of the better planes are exclusively assigned to the
Governor and members of the Cabinet, and cannot be
used by other public officials or employees. I recom-
mend that you repeal Section 22, (6) (c) (3) of the
Governmental Reorganization Act, which provides for
assignment of an executive aircraft to the Governor and
each member of the Cabinet.

-Better procedures are clearly needed to allow the Board
of Administration to maximize the interest earnings
from idle funds. Changing the procedure for investment
of funds between the time they are collected and spent
can earn the state an estimated 1.5 to 2.5 millions of
dollars each year. I recommend that full authority for
these investments be given to the Board of Administra-
tion.
-Management in many areas of government can be
improved and to do this, I recommend you give
administrators the help they need by funding the
management improvement function which was autho-
rized last year in the Department of Administration.
-Last year, the Legislature embarked on an expensive
experiment which made the state and all local govern-
ments liable to damage suits. I recommend that this
one-year waiver of sovereign immunity be allowed to
expire.

In the category of miscellaneous recommendations, I
offer the following:
The consumer protection function is presently housed
within the Department of Agriculture, an agency primarily
concerned with the interests, problems, and regulation of
agriculture. I strongly recommend that the consumer
protection function be transferred to the Secretary of
State.
I further recommend to you that you take the steps
necessary to return Interama to the state-back to the
people where it belongs-and stop the sale of this precious
public land to private developers. If the Interama property



is allowed to be peddled away to private promoters, never
before will so many people have paid so much money for
so few to profit in such a grand manner.

14 JOURNAL OF THE HOI

The Public Service Commission has drifted into a position
where there is good reason to wonder if, indeed, service to
the public is involved. Only recently, the Commission
joined a public utility it supposedly regulates in fighting
against a federal suit aimed at preventing pollution of
Biscayne Bay, hardly a service to the public. The news that
the Commission has recognized that it has stepped out of
bounds and is withdrawing from a suit it had no business
entering, is encouraging. But its action clearly demonstrates
that the Commission is little more than a tool of the
interests it is charged with regulating, and I would fully
support a Constitutional amendment making those positions
appointive.

Prison structural change in this decade is not only
essential-it is inevitable. In the form of further financial
relief to the cities and counties, all adult prisons and
juvenile detention facilities must ultimately be placed under
the state and operated on a regional concept; and this
concept must be further subdivided into separate regional
alcohol retention centers and separate regional drug reten-
tion centers. To this end I invite the legislative leadership
to designate a joint legislative task force to work with the
Executive Branch toward accomplishing a plan for achieving
a regional state-operated concept to be fully operational by
1975. I recommend that you immediately work toward this
concept, even as you deliberate in this session. Again, this
is a roll-forward program to be initiated by you, and
audited and evaluated by succeeding Legislatures toward
full implementation by 1975.

And with regard to juvenile offenders, I recommend to
you passage of legislation providing for the regular inspec-
tion of all juvenile detention facilities in the state by the
Division of Youth Services of the Department of Health
and Rehabilitative Services. Youth facilities must be prop-
erly equipped and separate from adult facilities.

Further, I recommend legislation that will permit judges
with criminal jurisdiction to commit juveniles to the
Division of Youth Services as an alternative to sentencing a
child to prison.

I also seek your support for the two additional Halfway
Houses for juvenile offenders which I have provided for in
my budget. Juvenile facilities must be operated as rehabili-
tation centers, not as prep schools for Raiford.

In a separate message, I have outlined a comprehensive
program for drug abuse treatment and rehabilitation. The
growing menace of drug abuse needs no further'elaboration
by me today. I hope that you will consider it carefully, and
I urge its adoption.

With regard to election reform, I pledge to you my full
support for any meaningful bill which will effectively deal
with the present hodgepodge of loopholes. No one has ever
satisfactorily put teeth in an election law, or even put forth
an adequate suggestion, and I urge this Legislature to be
the first to accomplish real election reform. The House
Elections Committee has been holding hearings for many
months now, and I look forward to seeing the product of
those many hours of effort, hopefully something far more
constructive and meaty than the poor and limited report I
have seen.



USE



I endorse a bill proposed by Representative Donald Reed
which prohibits a public official from qualifying as a
candidate for an office which runs concurrent in whole or
in part with a term of office presently held.



OF REPRESENTATIVES April 7, 1970

With respect to crime, I believe the thrust of this session
should be aimed not so much at tougher laws-which you
have already given us-but rather at providing more law
enforcement officers and streamlining the judicial process
so that speedy prosecution can be accomplished. In my
budget message, I asked for an additional 49 agents for the
Department of Law Enforcement, which would more than
double the present number of agents in this embryonic
force. I pray that you will give us those agents.

I would like to close today with my thoughts to you on
a subject of abiding concern to nearly every American-a
subject in which I have a deep personal commitment.

I speak now of the issue of forced busing.

As you know, Sunday night I removed from office the
School Board of Manatee County and the County Superin-
tendent of Instruction.

Newspaper reporters and editorial writers immediately
rushed into print, charging me with defiance of integration.

No one who knows me can possibly believe that charge.

The same reporters and editorial writers have charged me
with thwarting the courts.

Thwarting the courts?

They are saying this of a man who has with great
consistency painstakingly worked within the system of
courts so often in the past few months that I find myself
staring in wide-eyed disbelief at so ludicrous a charge.

I say to them just as I urge you: do not confuse a lawful
contest of sovereign authority with defiance of the courts.
For, in truth, there is a wide difference, indeed.

The issue at stake is forced busing, an insidious disease
which is steadfastly opposed by at least eighty percent of
the American people, by the Congress of the United States,
by the President of the United States, and by a majority of
District and Appellate Federal Judges across the land.

If I am guilty of any sort of defiance, it comes only in
the nature of defiance of a vicious and illegal concept
which, stripped of all of its liberal camouflage, is nothing
more than a form of cruel and unusual punishment heaped
upon innocent children.

There are those who would deceive us into believing that
forced busing is related to quality education. There are
those who would have us believe that racial balance is an
essential ingredient of quality education.

But those are phoney deceptions, and the people who
advance them are equally phoney.

The truth is, and most Americans have not been
deceived-forced busing is totally unrelated to quality
education. On the contrary, it is a disruptive deterrent to
education, and I have set about to prove it.

Yesterday, when I took over custodial supervision of the



Manatee County schools, I took with me a small task force
of education specialists from Florida State University,
whose purpose it will be to measure through comparative
tests-for the first time-the destructive impact of forced
busing upon basic education.









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



Several months ago, I pledged to the people of Florida
that I would defy and oppose the concept of forced busing
through every means lawfully available to me. At that time,
I announced to the world in general, and to the courts in
particular, that I would suspend school officials who
attempted to interrupt the school calendar in order to
implement any plan of massive forced busing.

Those were not hollow words, nor was it a pledge to be
taken lightly. My actions in Manatee County are part of my
continuing efforts in fulfillment of that pledge.

And I want to make it perfectly clear to those political
pantywaists who would wring their hands in despair and
hurl angry charges of defiance, just what it is that I am
seeking to do.

My action in Manatee County is a carefully thought-out
exercise of executive discretion in performance of my
executive duty to carry out a mandate of the Constitution.
I am constitutionally mandated as the supreme Chief
Executive of this state to provide "a uniform system of
free public schools." And inherently, this means an
adequate system of public education, not to be disrupted in
mid-year by an artificial imposition which can have no
worthwhile effect on any child. I am exercising a constitu-
tional discretion so that I might fulfill a constitutional
obligation to the children.

The Manatee case is a collision of sovereignty. It reflects
a conflict of authorities; a conflict of duties. But I remind
you that instead of acting contemptuously, I have and will
act in pursuance of my constitutional authority. It is a
question of whether supreme executive discretion is subject
to review by a District Court of the United States.

I know that it is not.

I believe the issue of forced busing must be decided once
and for all by the United States Supreme Court. This is my
intent, and this is where I am headed, if I can but just get
my day in our highest Court.

I cannot accept the philosophy that in every collision of
sovereignty the state must run for cover. Sovereignty is
much more than just a fading memory to be stored in our
nation's archives.

The issue, then, belongs in the United States Supreme
Court, and I would caution you against a rash of
legislation, however well intended, which can only add to
the fires of passion and the clouds of confusion.

The issue cannot be resolved in an air of passionate fury.
Instead, we must confine our efforts to the quiet dignity of
the courtroom and if, in the course of the judicial process,
we encounter some momentarily frightening collisions of
sovereignty, I would counsel that we keep our cool, take
events as they come, and plod painstakingly down the road
to nine Justices of the United States Supreme Court.

These are but a few of my recommendations and
observations. More will come and, as you proceed through
the deliberative process, I look forward to consulting with
you as often as possible, for my benefit as well as yours.

In the sixty days ahead, the challenge of 1970, the
moments of decision, will be too great to afford any of us



the luxury of partisanship. There will be plenty of time for
political campaigning-for you and for me-after this session
has ended.

O God, the source of love and wisdom, whose statutes

Thee so to guide and bless the House of Representatives,
here assembled, that it may ordain for our governance only
such things as please Thee, to the glory of Thy Name and
always remembering the welfare of the people they repre-
sent. And... direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy
most gracious favor, and further us with Thy continual
help, that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in
Thee, we may glorify Thy holy Name, and finally, by Thy
mercy, obtain everlasting life. Through Jesus Christ our
Lord. Amen.

That the following amendment to Section 15, Article III of

general election to be held in November, 1970:

SECTION 15. Terms and qualifications of legislators.--

(a) SENATORS. Senators shall be elected for terms of four

the amendment on the ground that Mr. Reed sought to amend
a section of the Constitution other than the section in the
House Joint Resolution under consideration.

the Constitution but argued this was permissible under Article
XI, Section 1, of the Constitution as Revised in 1968.

The Chair ruled the amendment by Mr. Reed out of order as
not being germane to the matter under debate.

The question recurred on the substitute amendment by Mr.
Pratt.

Mr. Arnold moved that the rules be waived, and debate be
limited to 10 minutes per side, which was not agreed to.



THE SPEAKER IN THE CHAIR

Mr. Reed asked the Chair to revisit its ruling, again stating his
belief that the revised Constitution permitted the grouping in a
joint resolution of matters touching several articles. He said this
was what actually had been done in submitting the revised
Constitution to the electorate in 1968.

The Speaker reiterated the Chair's ruling that Mr. Reed's
amendment was out of order on the following basis: "the
section of the Constitution reads, 'Amendment of a section, or
revision of one or more articles of the whole of this
Constitution . .' This is not a revision; this is purely the
amendment of a section, and therefore your amendment would
not be germane in this particular instance."

Mr. Reed insisted the Constitution should be read in its
broadest possible fashion in order to ascribe to it the
interpretation which he believed to be the intent of the drafters
of Section 1 of Article XI, and that was that any section, or
any portion of a section, or any article, could be revised,
amended, or changed by the use of one resolution.
The Speaker said he agreed with Mr. Reed "on the question
of a revision of one or more articles. My ruling is based on the
fact that this is not a revision of an article. It is the amendment
of a section." The Speaker again ruled Mr. Reed's amendment
out of order.
The question again recurred on the substitute amendment by
Mr. Pratt, which was adopted. The vote was:
