PROCLAMATION


STATE OF FLORIDA
Executive Department
Tallahassee

To the Members of the Florida Senate and House of Repre-

Legislature, a one hundred twenty (120) day moratorium on

torium will expire on February 8, 1971, and


WHEREAS, an interim solution to the automobile insurance
problems of the State must be found before the moratorium
expires, and

problem could be proposed by a study commission, and

WHEREAS, I find that it is in the best interest of the people
of the State that the Legislature be convened forthwith;


NOW, THEREFORE, I, Reubin O'D. Askew, Governor of the
State of Florida, by virtue of the power and authority vested

Our dear Heavenly Father, we are grateful for the

for Thy many blessings which far exceed our needs. Help

every good and perfect gift and that we are only stewards

ance in solving the problems which lie before us. Instill

Governor's Address

The President then presented Governor Askew, who addressed
the Joint Session as follows:

Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, members of the Senate and
House, an awful lot of Friends, and Ladies and Gentlemen.

I have called you into Special Session today to consider
several matters which are so urgent they cannot wait until
the regular session in April.



January 27, 1971








JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Each of the problems is seemingly unrelated to the other,
but all stem from the same beginning. Each of the matters
within the call of this Special Session had its roots in a
commitment which the Legislature made to this State and
its people.

In October, the Legislature placed a moratorium on rate
increases for automobile insurance. The moratorium will
expire on February 8.

The promise of the moratorium was that in 120 days,
reforms would be enacted in Florida's insurance law-
reforms which would protect the consumer from unreason-
able rates and, at the same time, make certain that
insurance would be available to the motorists of this State.

As a member of the Legislature, I voted for the
moratorium, as did many of you. I did so in good faith,
believing that the public had lost confidence in the method
by which automobile insurance was regulated. I did so
believing that reform was not only possible but necessary.

We promised the people of Florida we would act .
all we needed was time.

That time has run.

Our failure to act now on the election eve promise we
wrote into law would surely be received by those looking
to us for help as a callous and cynical act of political
opportunism.

I do not believe that we can accomplish total reform of
Florida's insurance law at this Special Session. I do believe,
however, that we can provide an interim solution which
will not only stabilize the immediate problem during this
interim period but will also create an atmosphere for
genuine reform in the year ahead.

Essential to this interim solution must be at least a
temporary return to some form of prior approval of rate
changes for automobile insurance. Nothing less will be
satisfactory to the public. Nothing less will demonstrate
that the adoption of the moratorium in October was truly
done in good faith.

I also recommend that you place the burden upon the
companies to justify any rate increases and that you clearly
prohibit any rate making in concert.

In offering these recommendations, I recognize there is no
one "right" solution in this very complex area of auto-
mobile insurance. I also recognize that this is not a problem
peculiar to Florida alone-it is a nationwide problem.

Finding solutions that are in the public interest will be
a continuing challenge both in this State and elsewhere.

I recommend to you the creation of an independent
commission to begin seeking long-range answers for Florida
and to make recommendations to the Legislature in its
regular session next year.



Borrowing from the better aspects of the rating systems
of other states and examining all other factors affecting
the cost of insurance, the study group would be charged



with molding a Florida insurance plan to meet the needs
of our citizens within the abilities of the industry to fairly
provide insurance protection.

I recognize that insurance companies should not be
expected to do business in Florida and lose money. I recog-
nize without doubt that the rising medical costs and the
rising cost of repairing automobiles will surely result in
higher insurance premiums. What becomes equally appar-
ent, however, is that no one can say with any degree of
certainty what the financial situations of the insurance
companies are as they relate to automobile insurance. Are
they actually losing money and, if so, how much are they
losing?

When all is said and done, the difficulty in answering
that question is one of the more perplexing problems
facing us today.

We must do as much as we can within the confines of
this Special Session to provide a more adequate method of
determining when rates are reasonable and when they are
unreasonable. And, in computing the profit or loss of a
company, it is clear that additional consideration must be
given to earnings from investments.

Legislative, executive and judicial inquiries into the
reasonableness of rates have too often been stymied by
varying accounting systems which make it difficult to
secure a clear determination of the facts. This is a long-
range problem to which we must address ourselves.

I know there is concern in Florida that insurance
companies, in response to any change in the law, will leave
our State or simply stop writing new policies. That, of
course, would create an availability problem and would
force many drivers to pay a much higher rate by virtue
of being assigned to an assigned risk pool.

We must take the availability of insurance into considera-
tion in amending our insurance law but, in doing so, we
must not abdicate our overall responsibility to the public.
I am certain the insurance industry recognizes our responsi-
bility.

And I hope the industry will consider these recommenda-
tions made in good faith and will not attempt to either
dry up the insurance market or unfairly restrict new
business.

We must also be honest with ourselves and with the
people we serve.

In temporarily returning to prior approval, we must
not attempt to fool the public into believing that insurance
rates will be lowered. It is clear to me that the open compe-
tition, as envisioned upon adoption of our present insurance
law, has not materialized to the benefit of the public. But
it is also clear that insurance rates cannot stay at the same
level while all other costs directly affecting the cost of
insurance skyrocket.



We must make it clear to the public that rates alone are
not the problem-but a manifestation of broader problems
to which we must address ourselves.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



While we strive vigorously to ascertain the true measure
of an insurance company's profit, we must in the months
ahead pursue with equal vigor needed reforms in our traffic
safety laws and improvements in our road systems. We
must insist, as we did in enacting a nation-leading bumper
law last year, that the automobile industry produce vehicles
which are not so easily and expensively damaged by minor
accidents.

We must be willing during the interim period to listen
to all sides so that our ultimate program will have the
confidence of both the consumer and the industry.

As you consider the alternatives before you in reform-
ing Florida's Insurance Code, I sincerely hope that you
do so with the full realization of the commitment which
was made here to the people of Florida last October.

But the commitment to reform Florida's Insurance Code
is but one of the commitments which confronts us as we
attempt to meet the many challenges of a growing state.

I want to remind you also of our commitments to:

Stabilize property taxes by providing additional state
aid for local governments.

Strengthen the Minimum Foundation Program by in-
creasing the State's contribution to local schools by $1,100
per unit each year for four years.

Build and operate new universities in Dade and Duval
counties.

Provide adequate health care, through Medicaid, for those
among us who are unable to pay.

Improve our highway safety programs and strengthen
the campaign against crime on both the state and local
level.

Provide proper housing and rehabilitation opportunities
in our prison system.

Improve and expand our community mental health and
drug abuse programs.

And-lest we forget-our commitment to provide ade-
quate staffing and financing for a revitalized Legislature.

Many of these programs were begun with the promise
that they would be fully funded next year or the year
after. Within existing revenues, we not only cannot fulfill
that promise but we will also be unable even to provide
enough money for the growth of already operating pro-
grams in this year's budget.

The revenue estimate for next year projects that we will
actually have less money coming in next year than was
appropriated for this year.



Our estimated deficit in fiscal 1971-72 is nearly 250
million dollars-just to keep existing and already com-
mitted programs going.



Furthermore, even after the most thorough review in
legislative history and the use of a 63 million dollar sur-
plus from the previous year, we find ourselves today with
insufficient funds to meet this year's obligations. Upon
my recommendation yesterday, the State Cabinet approved
additional holdbacks which, added to the previous holdback,
total 43 million dollars withheld from this year's spending
programs.

We are caught between the commendable vision of last
year's Legislature and the hard realities of a fiscal crisis.

I have expanded the call of this Special Session to pro-
pose to you the first step in resolving that crisis-a pro-
posed amendment to the State Constitution to permit a tax
on corporate profits.

I do not want to delude you into believing that this first
step will solve all of our fiscal problems.

But adoption of this amendment will set the stage for
other meaningful tax reforms which will enable us to meet
our most pressing revenue problems.

During the past few weeks and months, I have done the
best that I know how to bring to your attention the hard
realities which face us on this day. I have done this particu-
larly for the benefit of the new members of the Legislature
who are not yet familiar with the fact that Florida govern-
ment has turned the last stone available to avoid raising
additional revenues. I have explained as clearly and as often
as I could the essential fairness of a tax on corporate
profits.

Adopting this tax will rectify one of the most serious
inadequacies in our tax law.


As a result of the Supreme Court decision last week,
there is now no doubt that the present Constitution pro-
hibits such a tax and that the people will ultimately have
to decide if a tax on corporate profits is to be permitted.

I am asking you today to approve a proposed Constitu-
tional amendment and give the people the opportunity to
decide whether Florida should join almost every other
State in the Union in permitting a tax on corporate profits.

Aside from the question of need, there is here a very
basic question of equity. Our research indicates that Florida
now taxes its large corporations at practically the lowest
level in the United States, while taxing its consumers and
small businessmen at one of the highest levels in the
country.

Consequently, this State has one of the most regressive
and inelastic tax structures of all fifty States. And because
our existing revenue sources cannot keep pace with the
State's economic and population growth, we confront our-
selves with fiscal turmoil every few years.

Time and again, we invariably turned to increases in the
sales tax for the quick and easy answer to our financial
dilemma. But by doing so, we continued to put a dispropor-



tionate share of the tax burden on middle and low income
families.



January 27, 1971









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



I consider my election last November a personal mandate
to vigorously and tirelessly pursue the course of tax reform
that was laid out in my campaign. This I shall do.

The time for tax reform is now.

The need for a more productive tax base is now.

And I urge you to give the people a chance to speak on
this issue.

In addition to making a start on insurance and tax
reform in this Special Session, I am asking you to give
consideration to two other problems requiring your im-
mediate attention.

One year ago, we launched Florida's first medicaid pro-
gram to insure health care for those unable to pay their
own medical bills. But our original cost estimates could not
be based on any actual experience and, today, we face the
prospect of either providing an additional 6.4 million dol-
lars for medicaid or drastically curtailing the program for
the remainder of this fiscal year.

Clearly, we must provide the additional money.

Of this 6.4 million dollars, $2.5 million will be recovered
from the counties, leaving a balance of $3.9 million to be
paid from State General Revenue.

To fund this appropriation, I am recommending that the
insurance premium tax be collected from the insurance
industry on a quarterly instead of an annual basis.

This is not an increased tax on insurance premiums-but
it will increase the cash flow into the State Treasury this
year and in the years ahead.

I have also expanded the call of this Special Session to
consider legislation clarifying the length of the terms of
members of the Board of Business Regulation. When this
board was created in 1969 as a part of executive reorgan-
ization, the Legislature protected board members from
arbitrary removal by the Governor who appointed them.

The Legislature did so by requiring Senate approval of
any suspensions. I believe, however, that since the members
of this board are the actual heads of this department, which
is directly under the Governor, the Legislature intended to
have the term of office of those board members expire
along with that of the Governor. Some clarification is
needed in this regard, and I hope that this Legislature will
enact legislation to make clear that the terms do expire
with the term of the Governor who appointed them.

I recognize that, in making these recommendations to
you today, I am imposing a difficult and challenging task
on a new Legislature.

And I assure you that I, as a new Governor and a former
Legislator, can appreciate your feelings as together we
embark on what could be a historic new course in Florida
government.



Each of us, I am confident, is equal to the task.



And, as you meet your obligations in the days ahead,
let me assure you that I will be standing by in Tallahassee
to offer whatever assistance I may render.

Thank you.

Following the Governor's address, the committee escorted him
from the Chamber.

On motion by Senator Hollahan, the Joint Session was dis-
solved and the Senators retired to the Senate Chamber.

Reconvened

The House was called to order by the Speaker at 11:30 A.M.

A quorum was present.
The following Proclamation and Amendment to the Proclama-
tion were read:

PROCLAMATION

STATE OF FLORIDA
Executive Department
Tallahassee

To the Members of the Florida Senate and House of Repre-
sentatives:
WHEREAS, on January 21, 1971, I issued an Executive
Proclamation convening the Legislature in special session at
the Capitol for three (3) days beginning at 10 a.m. on Wednes-
day, January 27, 1971, and ending at 5 p.m. on Friday, Jan-
uary 29, 1971, for the sole and exclusive purpose of considering
the adoption of legislation to assure that adequate automobile
insurance protection be available to the citizens of Florida at
reasonable prices; and, more specifically, for the purpose of
seeking an interim solution to the problem, pending the de-
velopment of a more permanent and broad program of auto-
mobile insurance reform, and
WHEREAS, the Supreme Court of Florida has now advised
me that a tax on corporate income cannot be enacted without
an amendment to the Constitution, and
WHEREAS, the revenue from such a tax is direly needed to
finance the operations of our government in the fiscal year,
1971-72, and
WHEREAS, these revenues will not be available unless an
emergency is declared and an early referendum is authorized
by the Legislature, and
WHEREAS, since the issuance of the above Proclamation, a
question has arisen regarding the intent of the Legislature in
the enactment of the Governmental Reorganization Act of
1969, Chapter 20, Florida Statutes, as it relates to terms of
members of the Board of Business Regulation, which can be
resolved by an appropriate amendment, and
WHEREAS, since the issuance of the above Proclamation, it
has come to my attention that the Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services, Division of Family Services is in need
of additional funding to properly finance the Medicaid Program
for the fiscal period beginning July 1, 1970, and ending June
30, 1971, and
WHEREAS, this additional funding cannot be accomplished
unless additional revenue is made available to the General
Revenue Fund this year, and additional revenue can be made
available by requiring the quarterly payment of premium
taxes by insurance companies, and
WHEREAS, this can be accomplished without increasing
taxes, but merely by changing the method of collection, and



WHEREAS, in order for the Legislature to consider these
matters enumerated above, it is necessary to extend and ex-
pand the call of the Legislature, and

follow the identifying number. Committee amend-
ments shall be typewritten in full on amendment
forms, numbered serially and attached to the measure.
All unfavorable reports (signed by the Chairman, or
in his absence, the Vice Chairman) of committees
on bills, joint resolutions, resolutions and memorials

ed by the Chairman, or in his absence, the Vice Chair-
man must be accompanied by the original measure
referred to the committee and returned to the Clerk

erence shall consider the original measure but shall

mittee of the Whole House shall be read and debated,
or amended, by clauses or sections, leaving the title
or preamble to be last considered. The body of said
bill shall not be interlined or defaced, but all amend-
ments denoting the page and line shall be entered
on separate paper by the Clerk, who shall be Clerk
of the Committee of the Whole House, as the same
shall be agreed to by the Committee, and so reported
to the House. After report, the bill or other matter
may be again debated and shall be subject to be again
amended by clauses or sections. The quorum for a
Committee of the Whole House shall be the same as
for the House, and when the Committee of the Whole
House shall rise, the roll shall be called to ascertain
the presence of a quorum of the House. No bill or
resolution may be considered by the Committee of the
Whole House except by a two-thirds vote unless same



has first been considered by the appropriate standing
committee of the House. In the event the appropriate
standing committee should report such bill or resolu-



tion unfavorably, then no such bill or resolution shall
receive a favorable report of the Committee of the
Whole House except by a two-thirds vote of the Com-
mittee of the Whole House. If a bill or resolution has
been reported favorably by the appropriate commit-
tee a majority of the members of the Committee
of the Whole House may report the bill favorably.

6.13-The receiving of reports of committees of con-
Conference ference shall always be in order, except
Committees when the House is voting on any propo-
sition. After House conferees on any bill
or resolution in conference between the House and Sen-
ate shall have been appointed for seven (7) calendar
days and shall have failed to make a report, it is here-
by declared to be a motion of the highest privilege to
move to discharge said House conferees and to appoint
new conferees, or to instruct said House conferees;
and, further, during the last six (6) calendar days
allowed under the Constitution for any Regular Ses-
sion, it shall be a privileged motion to move to dis-
charge, appoint, or instruct House conferees after
House conferees shall have been appointed thirty-six
(36) hours without having made a report. There shall
accompany every conference report a statement suffi-
ciently explicit to inform the House what effect such
amendments or propositions will have upon the meas-
ures to which they relate. Upon presentation of the
report of a Conference Committee, the vote first shall
be whether the report shall be considered at that
moment and second upon the acceptance or rejection
thereof as an entirety. The report or reports of a
Conference Committee must be acted upon as a whole,
being agreed to or disagreed to as an entirety. When
any bill or joint resolution is referred to a Conference
Committee and the conferees on the part of the House
report inability to agree, no action of the House taken
prior to such reference to a Conference Committee shall
preclude further action on said measure as the House
may determine.

6.14-Notwithstanding any of the rules as other-
wise set forth herein, the following shall
Witnesses be deemed supplemental and cumula-
tive to all of said rules:

(a) Each standing or select committee or subcom-
mittee thereof, is authorized to invite public officials
and employees and private individuals to appear be-
fore the committee for the purpose of submitting in-
formation to it. Each such committee shall be au-
thorized to maintain a continuous review of the work
of the state agencies concerned with its subject area
and the performance of the functions of government
within each such subject area, and for this purpose to
request reports from time to time, in such form as
the committee shall designate, concerning the opera-
tion of any state agency and presenting any proposal
or recommendation such agency may have with regard
to existing laws or proposed legislation in its subject
area.

(b) In order to carry out its duties each such com-



mittee is empowered with the right and authority to
inspect and investigate the books, records, papers,
documents, data, operation, and physical plant of any
public agency in this state.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



(c) In order to carry out its duties each such stand-
ing or select committee, whenever required, may issue
subpoena and other necessary process to compel the
attendance of witnesses before such committee, and
the chairman thereof shall issue said process on behalf
of the committee. The chairman or any other member
of such committee may administer all oaths and af-
firmations in the manner prescribed by law to wit-
nesses who shall appear before such committee for the
purpose of testifying in any matter about which such
committee may desire evidence.

(d) Each such committee, whenever required, may
also compel by subpoena duces tecum the production
of any books, letters, or other documentary evidence
it may desire to examine in reference to any matter
before it.

(e) The sheriffs in the several counties shall make
such service and execute all process or orders when
required by such committees. Sheriffs shall be paid
as provided for in section 30.23, Florida Statutes.

(f) Whoever willfully affirms or swears falsely in
regard to any material matter or thing before any
such committee shall upon conviction thereof, be
deemed guilty of false swearing and shall be im-
prisoned in a state prison not exceeding twenty (20)
years.

(g) Should any witness fail to respond to the law-
ful subpoena of any such committee at a time when
the legislature is not in session or, having responded,
fail to answer all lawful inquiries or to turn over evi-
dence that has been subpoenaed, such committee may
file a complaint before any circuit court of the state
setting up such failure on the part of the witness.
On the filing of such complaint, the court shall take
jurisdiction of the witness and the subject matter of
said complaint and shall direct the witness to respond
to all lawful questions and to produce all documentary
evidence in his possession which is lawfully demanded.
The failure of any witness to comply with such order
of the court shall constitute a direct and criminal
contempt of court, and the court shall punish said wit-
ness accordingly.

(h) All witnesses summoned before any such com-
mittee shall receive reimbursement for travel expenses
and per diem at the rates provided in section 112.061,
Florida Statutes. However, the fact that such reim-
bursement is not tendered at the time the subpoena is
served shall not excuse the witness from appearing
as directed therein.

of order on second reading and the Speaker may, in

pose of examining and auditing the books and records of all in-
surers doing business in the state of Florida with reference to
their insurance rates. ;



Section 17. Public hearings.-The commission is authorized
to hold public hearings throughout the state for the purpose of
receiving public opinion on those subjects which are within the

ment:

On page 11, line 21, strike "October 9, 1970" and insert the
following: July 1, 1970

Mr. Featherstone moved the adoption of the amendment.

Representatives MacKay and Hess offered the following sub-
stitute amendment:

On page 11, strike all of lines 20 through 24 and insert the
following:
(1) Every manual of classifications, rules and rates and
every rating plan in effect on July 1, 1970, relating to motor
vehicle insurance shall be the lawful classifications, rates, rules
and rating plans until changed in accordance with the provisions
of this act.

(2) Notwithstanding subsection (1), any insurance company
which submits a filing to the department on or after July 1,
1970, may implement the rates contained in the filing subject to
entering into a legally binding guarantee with the department
to secure the repayment to the insurer's policy holders of the
difference between the insurer's existing rate and the proposed
rate for the period of time that the filing is under consideration
if the filing is ultimately disapproved by the department or sub-
sequent judicial review. The department may require posting a
sufficient surety bond or escrow account if it determines the
insurer is not reasonably solvent to meet the guarantee. If the
department disapproves the filing, the rates contained therein
shall continue in effect only so long as such insurer pursues
subsequent judicial review with reasonable diligence.

Mr. MacKay moved the adoption of the substitute amendment.

Pending consideration thereof-

Representative Featherstone offered the following amendment
to the substitute amendment:

review", strike the period and insert the following: and in addi-
tion to repayment of the premium the company shall pay to
the insured the legal rate of interest on the money previously
collected.

Mr. Speaker and Representatives Chapman, D'Alemberte,
Gallen, Harllee, Stevens, Tucker, and Wolfson were recorded
as voting Yea.

Representative Miers was recorded as voting Nay.

So the bill passed, as amended, and was ordered immediately
certified to the Senate, after engrossment.

HB 3-B-A bill to be entitled An act relating to govern-
mental reorganization; amending 20.16(1), Florida Statutes;
providing that the members of the board of business regula-
tion shall serve at the pleasure of the governor; providing an
effective date.

-was taken up. On motion by Mr. Reeves, the rules were
waived and HB 3-B was read the second time by title.



Representatives Reeves and Firestone offered the following
amendment:

On page 2, strike all of lines 12 through 14 and insert the
following: shall serve a term concurrent with the term of the
governor making the appointment. The governor may suspend
the members of the board, subject to removal or reinstatement
by the Senate.

Mr. Reeves moved the adoption of the amendment.

Pending consideration thereof-

Representative Earle offered the following substitute amend-
ment:

On page 2, strike all of lines 12 through 14 and insert the
following: shall serve four year terms. The governor may sus-
pend the members of the board, subject to removal or rein-
statement by the Senate.

Dr. Earle moved the adoption of the substitute amendment.

Pending consideration thereof-

Mr. Nichols moved that the substitute amendment be laid on
the table, which was agreed to.

The question recurred on the adoption of the amendment.

Pending consideration thereof-

Representative Reed offered the following substitute amend-
ment:

On page 2, line 15, strike Section 2 and insert the following:
Section 2. The terms of members of executive boards, including
the terms of members of the Board of Regents, shall be
limited to terms concurrent with the term of the Governor.

Section 3. This act shall take effect upon becoming a law.

Mr. Reed moved the adoption of the substitute amendment.

Pending consideration thereof-

Mr. Dubbin raised the point of order that the substitute
amendment by Mr. Reed was irrelevant to the subject area of
the Governor's Proclamation. The Speaker ruled the point was
well taken in that the Governor's Proclamation proposed amend-
ing the Governmental Reorganization Act of 1969 only insofar
as that Act related to the Board of Business Regulation. Thus,
the substitute amendment was outside the scope of the Call.



The question recurred on the ad
which was adopted. The vote was:

Mr. Wolfson moved the adoption of the amendment.

Pending consideration thereof-

Mr. Harris raised the point of order that the amendment by
Messrs. Carey Matthews and Wolfson was outside the pur-
view of the Governor's Call.

Mr. Matthews said the amendment was germane since it
sought to amend the Governmental Reorganization Act of
1969, which was the subject of the Governor's Proclamation.

The Speaker ruled the amendment was out of order. He
said the problem was not one of germaneness but of the
limitation of the Call. He said the amendment otherwise
would be germane but since the area of present consideration
of the Reorganization Act was limited by the Proclamation,
the amendment at this time was out of order.

Mr. Wolfson inquired whether the amendment could be
admitted for House consideration by a two-thirds vote. The
Speaker said he was of the opinion that matters deemed out-
side a Governor's Call could be reached only by a separate
bill.

Mr. Harris moved the previous question on the bill.

Pending consideration thereof-

Mr. Reed moved that the House now adjourn to reconvene
at the hour of 10:00 A.M. tomorrow morning, which was not
agreed to.

The question recurred on the motion for the previous ques-
tion, which was agreed to.

Mr. Reeves moved that the rules be waived and HB 3-B, as
amended, be read a third time by title, which was not agreed
to by two-thirds vote. The vote was:

11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great
is his mercy toward them that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he
removed our transgressions from us.
13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD
pitieth them that fear him.
14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we
are dust.
15 As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the
field, so he flourisheth.
16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the
place thereof shall know it no more.
17 But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to
everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness
unto children's children;
18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that re-
member his commandments to do them.
19 The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens;
and his kingdom ruleth over all.
20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength,
that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of
his word.
21 Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his,
that do his pleasure.
22 Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his
dominion: bless the LORD, 0 my soul.

Psalm 103 was read by Representative Donald G. Nichols:

1 BLESS the LORD, 0 my soul: and all that is within me,
bless his holy name.
2 Bless the LORD, 0 my soul, and forget not all his
benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who health all
thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crown-
eth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that
thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for
all that are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto
the children of Israel.
8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and
plenteous in mercy.
9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his
anger for ever.
10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded
us according to our iniquities.

So the bill passed, as amended, and was ordered engrossed.

HCR 1-B-A concurrent resolution making application to the
Congress of the United States to call a convention for the sole
and exclusive purpose of proposing to the several states a
constitutional amendment providing for sharing by state and
local governments of federal income tax revenues;

WHEREAS, a resolution of our nation's myriad and diverse
problems is contingent upon a viable partnership between the
federal government and strengthened state governments, and

WHEREAS, the federal government, by its extensive reliance
on the graduated income tax as a revenue source, has virtually
preempted the use of this source from state and local govern-
ments, thereby creating a disabling fiscal imbalance between
the federal government and the state and local governments, and

WHEREAS, increasing demands upon state and local govern-
ments for essential public services have compelled the states to
rely heavily on highly regressive and inelastic consumer taxes
and property taxes, and

WHEREAS, federal revenues based predominantly on income
taxes increase significantly faster than economic growth, while
state and local revenues based heavily on sales and property
taxes do not keep pace with economic growth, and

WHEREAS, the fiscal crisis at state and local levels has
become the overriding problem of intergovernmental relations
and of continuing a viable federal system, and

WHEREAS, the evident solution to this problem is a mean-
ingful sharing of federal income tax resources, and

WHEREAS, the United States Congress, despite the imme-
diate and imperative need therefore, has failed to enact accept-
able revenue sharing legislation, and

WHEREAS, in the event of such congressoinal inaction, Arti-
cle V of the Constitution of the United States grants to the
states the right to initiate constitutional change by applications
from the legislatures of two-thirds of the several states to the
Congress, calling for a constitutional convention, and

WHEREAS, the Congress of the United States is required by
the Constitution to call such a convention upon the receipt of

applications from the legislatures of two-thirds of the several
states,

NOW, THEREFORE,

Be It Resolved by the House of Representatives of the State of
Florida, the Senate Concurring:

That, pursuant to Article V of the Constitution of the United
States, the legislature of the state of Florida does hereby make
application to the Congress of the United States to call a con-
vention for the sole and exclusive purpose of proposing to the
several states a constitutional amendment which shall provide
that a portion of the taxes on income levied by Congress pur-
suant to the sixteenth amendment of the Constitution of the
United States shall be made available each year to state govern-
ments and political subdivisions thereof, by means of direct
allocation, tax credits, or both, without limiting directly or indi-
rectly the use of such monies for any purpose not inconsistent
with any other provision of the Constitution of the United
States.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this application shall
constitute a continuing application for such convention pursuant
to Article V until the legislatures of two-thirds of the states
shall have made like applications and such convention shall
have been called by the Congress of the United States unless
previously rescinded by this legislature, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that certified copies of this
resolution be presented forthwith to the president of the United
States senate and the speaker of the United States house of
representatives and to the legislatures of each of the several
states attesting the adoption of this resolution by the legislature
of the state of Florida.

earnings tax upon the privilege of doing business in the state,

shall exempt from taxation a part or all of the earnings of
each business, equal to the first ten thousand dollars ($10,000)
earned in each year plus the total amount of federal income tax
paid in that year on such earnings; and such a tax may apply

business is an artificial entity for federal tax purposes or as to
how such earnings may be distributed or realized.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



for in section 627.081 shall commence as of the date such
information is received by the department. The information
furnished in support of a filing shall include:

(a) The experience or judgment of the insurer making the
filing;

(b) The insurer's interpretation of any statistical data it
relies upon;

(c) The experience of other insurers or rating organizations,
if applicable;

(d) The most recent certified financial statement of the
insurer making the filing; and

(e) Any other factors which the insurer or the department
deems relevant.

(3) A filing and supporting information shall be open to
public inspection as provided in section 627.081.

(4) No insurer or employee thereof, and no agent shall make
or issue a contract or policy of motor vehicle insurance except
in accordance with the filings which are in effect for such
insurer, as provided in this part, or in accordance with section
627.171 (excess rates) of this code.

SSection 6. Chapter 627, Florida Statutes, is amended by
adding new section 627.081, to read:

627.081 Motor vehicle insurance; when filing becomes
effective; hearing as to filing.-

(1) The department shall review motor vehicle insurance
filings as soon as reasonably possible to determine if they
meet the applicable requirements of this part.

(2) Within fifteen (15) days after the date of receipt of
the filing or the filing of additional information requested by
the department under section 627.080(2), the department shall
place the filing and its supporting information on file for
public inspection, and give notice thereof to the insurer making
the filing. Prior to public inspection the filing shall be deemed
a privileged communication not open to public inspection;
but this provision shall not prohibit any insurer from discuss-
ing, or require any such insurer to discuss, any such filing.

(3) A filing which the department has placed on file for
public inspection as provided in subsection (2) shall so remain
on file for fifteen (15) days (counting such filing date as the
first day of such public inspection period), and shall not be
approved or disapproved, or become effective during such
fifteen-day period except after a public hearing set by the
'department, either upon his own motion or at the request of
the insurer. Within such fifteen-day period the department
may, if it determines it to be in the public interest, hold a
public hearing to determine whether the filing meets the
requirements of this chapter. If a public hearing is set, the
department shall give notice of such hearing to the insurer
making the filing, and the effectiveness of the filing shall be
subject to the further order of the department as provided in
subsection (6) of this section. If not approved or disapproved
after a public hearing or set for for future public hearing by
the department, the filing shall become effective at 12:01
a.m. on the sixteenth day or upon such subsequent date as
provided in the filing.

(4) An insurer, at the time it makes a filing with the depart-
ment, may request a public hearing thereon. In such event
the department shall forthwith place the filing on file for
public inspection and shall give notice of the hearing, and other-
wise hold and conduct the hearing as provided in subsection (6).
The effectiveness of the filing shall be subject to the depart-
mnent's order made following the hearing.



(5)(a) If the department approves a filing it shall give
prompt written notice thereof to the insurer making the filing,



and in which case the filing shall become effective upon such
approval or upon such subsequent date as may be satisfactory
to the department and the insurer that made the filing.

(b) If an insurer files notice of appeal pursuant to 627.391
of the department's order disapproving a filing, it may place
the filing in effect, pending final adjudication, provided how-
ever, that the insurer shall make any refunds including interest
that the court may direct if the department's disapproval is
upheld. Any refunds, including interest that the court may
direct, not refunded to or claimed by the insured within two
(2) years of the date of final adjudication, shall be considered
abandoned, and shall escheat to the state pursuant to Chapter
717. In such cases, if the commissioner finds that there is
doubt as to the ability of the insurer to respond to a court
order directing refunds, the commissioner may require a bond
to be posted to secure the payment of any refund, including
interest, that the court may direct should the commissioner's
disapproval be upheld.

(6) (a) If, pursuant to subsection (3), the department holds
a public hearing as to a filing, or holds a public hearing
pursuant to request under subsection (4), he shall give to the
insurer written notice thereof not less than ten (10) days prior
to the date of the hearing. He shall hold such hearing within
thirty (30) days after commencement of the public inspection
period. Unless the filing is disapproved within 30 days after
the commencement of the hearing the filing shall be deemed
approved. The department shall also give public notice of the
hearing in daily newspapers of general circulation in one or
more counties of this state. This notice shall be published not
less than ten (10) days prior to the hearing date, and shall
specify the date, place and time of the hearing, the nature of
the hearing, and the name of the individual insurer or insurers
whose rates will be affected by the filing.

(b) The, hearing shall be conducted and the order thereon
issued in conformity with Part II of Chapter 120, Florida
Statutes.

(c) Any order of the department shall be subject to judicial
review as provided in section 627.391, Florida Statutes.

Section 7. Chapter 627, Florida Statutes, is amended by
adding new section 627.082, to read:

627.082 Motor vehicle insurance; basis of approval or dis-
approval of filing.-

(1) In determining at any time whether to approve or dis-
approve a filing as to motor vehicle insurance, or to permit the
filing otherwise to become effective, the department shall give
consideration to where applicable, consistent with sound actu-
arial principles, the following factors:

(a) Past and prospective loss and expense experience within
and outside this state,

"(b) Catastrophe hazards,

(c) A reasonable margin for underwriting profit and con-
tingencies,

(d) Dividends, savings or unabsorbed premium deposits
allowed or returned by insurers to their policyholders, members
or subscribers,

(e) Whether or not rates are excessive, inadequate or un-
fairly discriminatory. Rates shall be deemed excessive if they
are likely to produce a long run profit that is unreasonably
high in relation to the riskiness of the class of business, or if
expenses are unreasonably high in relation to services rendered,
Rates shall be deemed inadequate if they are clearly insuf-



ficient, together with the investment income attributable to
them, to sustain projected losses and expenses in the class of
business to which they apply. One rate shall be deemed un-
fairly discriminatory in relation to another in the same class
if it clearly fails to reflect equitably the difference in expected
losses and expenses,



January 29, 1971

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



January 29, 1971



(f) Investment income on unearned premium reserves and insurance contract or policy made or issued prior to the expira-
loss reserves, tion of the period set forth in the order.



(g) Past and prospective expenses both country-wide and
those specifically applicable to this state,

(h) Cost of repairs to automobiles,

(i) Cost of medical services (including hospital),

(j) Adequacy of loss reserves,

(k) Cost of reinsurance,

(1) Loss adjustment expense,

(m) Reasonable legal costs,

(n) Trend factors,

(o) Competition as measured by:

1. The number of insurers and agents actively engaged in
writing private passenger automobile insurance;

2. The existence of rate difference in such insurance;

3. Whether profitability from such insurance in this state
for insurers generally is unreasonably high in relation to the
risk involved, and

(p) Other relevant factors including judgment factors, within
and outside this state.

(2) The commissioner's order granting or denying approval
of the rate filing shall contain findings of fact and conclusions
of law relative to the above criteria.

(3) The systems of expense provisions included in the rates
for use by an insurer or groups of insurers may differ from
those of other insurers or groups of insurers to reflect the
requirements of the operating methods of any such insurer or
group with respect to any kind of insurance or with respect to
any subdivision or combination separate expense provisions are
applicable.

(4) Risks may be grouped by classifications for the establish-
ment of rates and minimum premiums. Classification rates may
be modified to product rates for individual risks in accordance
with rating plans which establish standards for determining
variations in hazards or expense provisions, or both. Such
standards may measure any difference among risks that can
be demonstrated to have a probable effect upon losses or ex-
penses. Such classifications and modifications shall apply to
all risks under the same or substantially the same circumstances
or conditions.

Section 8. Chapter 627, Florida Statutes, is amended by
adding new section 627.083, to read:

627.083 Motor vehicle insurance; subsequent disapproval of
filing; appeal by insureds and others as to filing approved
without hearing.-

(1) If at any time after a filing has been approved, or has
otherwise become effective, the department finds, after a hear-
ing held on not less than twenty (20) days written notice
specifying the matters to be considered at the hearing and given
to every insurer which made the filing, that the filing no
longer meets the requirements of this part, he shall issue an
order specifying in what respects he finds that such filing
fails to meet such requirements. The order shall also state when,
within a reasonable period thereafter, such filing shall no
longer be effective. The department shall send a copy of the
order to every such insurer. The order shall not affect any



(2) (a) Any person or organization other than the insurer
who made the filing, aggrieved with respect to any motor
vehicle insurance filing which has been approved without a
hearing, may within thirty (30) days after the date of such
approval make written application to the department for a
hearing thereon. Such application shall specify the grounds to
be relied upon by the applicant.

(b) If the department finds that the application is made in
good faith, that the applicant would be so aggrieved if his
grounds are established, and that such grounds otherwise justify
holding a hearing, he shall, within thirty (30) days after
receipt of such application, hold a hearing upon not less than
ten (10) days written notice to the applicant and to the insurer
who made such filing.

(c) If, after such hearing, the department finds that the
filing does not meet the applicable requirements of this part,
he shall issue an order specifying in what respects he finds
that such filing fails to meet such requirements, and stating
when, within a reasonable period thereafter, such filing shall be
deemed no longer effective. Copies of the order shall be sent
to the applicant and to every such insurer. The order shall not
affect any contract or policy made or issued prior to the
expiration of the period set forth in the order.

(d) Any person or organization denied a hearing, or who
after such hearing suffers an adverse order, may appeal from
such order as provided by section 627.391. The department and
the insurer which made the filing shall be parties to such
appeal.

ing new section 627.084, to read:

627.084 Motor vehicle insurance; information to be furnished
insureds; appeal by insureds.-

(1) As to motor vehicle insurance, every insurer, within a
reasonable time after receiving written request therefore, shall
furnish to any insured affected by a rate made by it or to the
authorized representative of such insured, upon payment of a
reasonable charge deemed to reasonable by the Insurance
Commissioner of the State of Florida, all pertinent information
as to such rate.

(2) As to motor vehicle insurance, every insurer shall pro-
vide within this state reasonable means whereby any person
aggrieved by the application of its rating system may be heard,
in person or by his authorized representative, on his written
request to review the manner in which such rating system has
been applied in connection withthe insurance afforded him. If
the insurer fails to review such request within thirty (30) days
after it is made, or rejects the petitioner's position, the
petitioner may appeal to the department, who after a hearing
held upon not less than ten (10) days written notice to the
petitioner and to such insurer, may affirm, modify, or reverse
the application of the rating system to the petitioner.

Section 10. Implementation of this act.-Every manual of
classifications, rules and rates and every rating plan in effect
on October 9, 1970, relating to motor vehicle insurance shall
be the lawful classifications, rates, rules and rating plans until
changed in accordance with the provisions of this act.

Prayer

Prayer by Representative Richard S. Hodes:

Gracious and merciful God! Thou has dowered us above
all earth born creatures with a spark of Thy spirit. We
thank Thee, 0 God, for the gift of reason whereby we may
search after knowledge and gain mastery over nature.
Let us not misuse this gift to darken Thy light and defeat
Thy sacred purposes. In the pride of intellect may we not
become a law unto ourselves and reject Thy benign statutes.
0 God, our hearts are filled with discord as they grow
estranged from Thee. Lower desires often threaten to
defeat our nobler inclinations. As we grow in knowledge,
may we grow also in reverence and humility. Let the fruit
of the tree of knowledge yield more abundant life and
happiness and not pain, misery, and death. May the
consciousness of Thy presence be the music of our lives,
bringing harmony into our existence and raising us to the
heights of true humanity. Praised be Thou, 0 Lord, gracious
giver of knowledge. Amen.



The Journal

The Journal of January 29 was approved.


Unfinished Business

HJR 7-B-A Joint Resolution proposing an amendment to
Section 5 of Article VII of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, limiting the prohibition against estate, inheritance
and income taxes to natural persons only, and providing an
effective date.

-was taken up on second reading with the following pending
amendment by Representatives Holloway and Wolfson:

On page 2, strike lines 4 through 9 through the word "state."
and insert the following: No tax upon estates or inheritances
shall be levied by the state, or under its authority, in excess of
the aggregate of amounts which may be allowed to be credited
upon or deducted from a-ry similar tax levied by the United
States of any state. No tax upon the income of natural persons,
corporations, or other entities shall be levied, except a business
earnings tax upon the privilege of doing business in the state,
which tax is limited as provided in this section. Such a tax
shall exempt from taxation a part or all of the earnings of
each business, equal to the first ten thousand dollars ($10,000)
earned in each year plus the total amount of federal income tax
paid in that year on such earnings; and such a tax may apply
to business earnings without distinction as to whether the
business is an artificial entity for federal tax purposes or as to
how such earnings may be distributed or realized.

The question recurred on the adoption of the amendment.

Pending consideration thereof-

Mr. Gautier suggested the amendment by Messrs. Holloway
and Wolfson was, under Article III, Section 3(c)(1), of the
Constitution, outside the purview of the Governor's Call and,
therefore, out of order.

Mr. Holloway observed that the amendment pertained, as
did the Governor's Call, to Article VII, Section 5, of the
Constitution, and therefore, was of the same subject matter.

The Speaker said the same proposition had been presented
last week when an amendment affecting the Racing Commis-
sion was offered to a bill relating to the Board of Business
Regulation, both Commission and Board being parts of the
Governmental Reorganization Act of 1969. At that time, con-
tinued the Speaker, the amendment was held to be germane to
the subject but outside the purview of the Call and therefore
out of order under the circumstances.

"This is a matter, however," continued the Speaker, "that
the Chair regards as so important that it appears I need advice
from some group who would review this question in detail to
make certain that in this highly important area of revising
the Constitution we do not violate that Constitution. For that
reason, I would like to ask the Chairman of Rules, Mr. Dubbin;
the Dean of the House, Mr. Sweeny; the Minority Leader, Mr.
Reed; the Vice Chairman of Rules, Mr. Westberry; and the
Member raising the Point of Order, Mr. Gautier, to review the
Governor's Proclamation, and Article III, Section 3(c)(1), cited
by Mr. Gautier, and let me have their advice, preferably in
writing, before I establish for the record and for the Journal

Continuation of Consideration of HJR 7-B

Report of Select Advisory Committee on HJR 7-B

The following report was read:



February 1, 1971



Your Select Committee appointed to inquire into and advise
the Speaker on the Holloway-Wolfson amendment to HJR
7-B, met and after discussion divided the issue into the fol-
lowing questions or inquiries:

1. Did the Governor by his Proclamation foreclose consid-
eration of an income tax upon or against natural persons of
any nature in the opinion of the Committee?



This vote was: Reed, Sweeny, Westberry-No.
Gautier, Dubbin-Yes.



A majority of the Committee expressed uncertainty as to
the Governor's meaning in the use of the words in the Proc-
lamation, "other artificial entities" in relation to "natural
persons" and requests further clarification of the Governor's
intent. The vote was:

Reed, Sweeny, Westberry-Yes.
Gautier, Dubbin-No.

2. Does the Holloway-Wolfson amendment, if adopted, allow
levy of an income tax upon or against a natural person?

The opinion of the Committee was unanimously, yes.

3. If the answer to Question 1 were to be determined in the
affirmative, is the Holloway-Wolfson amendment per se, out-
side of the purview of the call by virtue of Article 3, Section 3,
subsection C(1) of the Constitution and out of order as an
amendment ?

The opinion of the Committee is unanimously, yes.

Murray H. Dubbin
Chairman

The Speaker said the critical question was answered by the
committee in its third answer, which the committee agreed
upon unanimously. The Speaker said he was aware of the
Governor's views and any amendment including a personal
income tax would be declared outside the Call. The purview
of the Call, he continued, determined the scope of the amenda-
tory process. Therefore, the amendment by Representatives

Holloway and Wolfson was ruled out of order.

Representative Gautier offered the following amendment:

On page 2, line 9, following the period insert the following:
Any tax levied upon net income shall not exceed five percent
(5%) and shall exempt not less than $25,000 of the net income
subject to the tax.

Mr. Gautier moved the adoption of the amendment.

Pending consideration thereof-

Representatives Crabtree and Gautier offered the following
substitute amendment:

On page 2, lines 4 through 11, strike the entire text
and insert the following: (a) Except as provided in subsection
(b), no tax upon estates or inheritances or upon the income
of residents or citizens of the state shall be levied by the state,
or under its authority, in excess of the aggregate of amounts
which may be allowed to be credited upon or deducted from
any similar tax levied by the United States or any state.

(b) Notwithstanding subsection (a), the state may levy a tax
upon the net income of residents and citizens other than
natural persons, but only on net income in excess of the
amount of the corporate surtax exemption provided in sec-
tion 11(d) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended
from time to time, and any comparable subsequent federal
law. This subsection (b) shall become effective immediately
upon approval by the electors of Florida.

Mr. Crabtree moved the adoption of the substitute amend-
ment.

Pending consideration thereof-

Mr. Reed raised a point of order in that he said the Gov-
ernor's Proclamation asked for an act requiring an emergency
referendum on the joint resolution, but the resolution as pro-
posed by Mr. Turlington contained language which could place
this question before the voters at the general election in
November, 1972. He submitted to the Chair the question of
whether the resolution was out of order since the Governor's
Call limited the submission at an emergency election only.



Mr. D'Alemberte said a joint resolution first had to be
adopted and then a bill setting a date for an emergency elec-

tion must follow. Hence, said Mr. D'Alemberte, the form of
the resolution was appropriate.

The Speaker said the Governor's Call contemplated a separate
act dealing solely with the question of an emergency election,
and Mr. Reed's point was not well taken.

Mr. Reed questioned whether, in the event of failure of a
bill for an emergency election, whether it would require a
two-thirds vote of the membership for introduction of a bill
for the question to be submitted to the voters in November,
1972.

The Speaker said the Constitution automatically provided that
a constitutional amendment goes on the next general election
ballot with the further opportunity for earlier consideration
by the electorate in the event it is placed by statute or by law
in the form of an emergency election. He said the two-resolu-
tion and election-are not necessarily related.

The question recurred on the adoption of the substitute
amendment.

Pending consideration thereof-

Representatives Gautier and Crabtree offered the following
amendment to the substitute amendment:

In paragraph (b) after "citizens other than natural persons"
strike the comma and the remainder of the paragraph and
insert the following:

; provided however that any tax levied upon net income shall
not exceed five percent (5%) and shall exempt not less than
$25,000 of the net income shown on the taxpayers United
States income tax return.

Mr. Gautier moved the adoption of the amendment to the
substitute amendment, which failed of adoption.

The question recurred on the adoption of the substitute
amendment, which failed of adoption.

The question recurred on the adoption of the amendment
by Mr. Gautier.

Pending consideration thereof-

Mr. Wolfson called for division of the questions in the
amendment. The Speaker doubted whether the amendment of
itself could be divided. He observed that anyone wishing to
divide the questions could do so by offering amendments to
the amendment.

Representatives Turlington and Reeves offered the following
substitute amendment:

On page 2, lines 4 through 11, strike the entire text and
insert the following: (a) NATURAL PERSONS. No tax upon
estates or inheritances or upon the income of natural persons
who are residents or citizens of the state shall be levied by
the state, or under its authority, in excess of the aggregate
of amounts which may be allowed to be credited upon or
deducted from any similar tax levied by the United States or
any state. (b) OTHERS. No tax upon the income of residents
and citizens other than natural persons shall be levied by the
state, or under its authority, in excess of 5% of net income,
as defined by law, or at such greater rate as is authorized
by a three-fifths (3/5) vote of each house of the legislature
or as will provide for the state the maximum amount which
may be allowed to be credited against income taxes levied by
the United States and other states. General law shall exempt



not less than five-thousand dollars ($5,000) of the net income
subject to tax. No tax in excess of two-thousand dollars
($2,000), other than intangible taxes herein authorized shall
be levied upon the net worth of any corporation. (c) EFFEC-
TIVE DATE. This section shall become effective immediately
upon approval by the electors of Florida.



Mr. Turlington moved the adoption of the substitute amend-
ment.

Pending consideration thereof-

Recess

On motion by Mr. Turlington, the House recessed at 3:00
P.M. to reconvene upon call of the Speaker.

Reconvened

The House was called to order by the Speaker at 3:12 P.M.

A quorum was present.

The question recurred on the adoption of the substitute
amendment by Messrs. Turlington and Reeves.

Pending consideration thereof-

Mr. Sweeny raised a point of order that the last sentence
of paragraph (b) related to corporate stock tax rather than to
a corporate income tax, and was outside the purview of the
Governor's Call.

The Speaker ruled Mr. Sweeny's point well taken, and the
amendment out of order.

Representative Dubbin offered the following substitute
amendment:

On page 2, lines 4 through 11, strike the entire text and
insert the following: (a) NATURAL PERSONS. No tax upon
estates or inheritances or upon the income of natural persons
"who are residents or citizens of the state shall be levied by the
state, or under its authority, in excess of the aggregate of
amounts which may be allowed to be credited upon or deducted
from any similar tax levied by the United States or any state.
(b) OTHERS. No tax upon the income of residents and citizens
other than natural persons shall be levied by the state, or
under its authority, in excess of 5% of net income, as defined
by law, or at such greater rate as is authorized by a three-
fifths (3/5) vote of each house of the legislature or as will
provide for the state the maximum amount which may be
allowed to be credited against income taxes levied by the
United States and other states. General law shall exempt not
less than five-thousand dollars ($5,000) of the net income sub-
ject to tax. (c) EFFECTIVE DATE. This section shall become
effective immediately upon approval by the electors of Florida.

Mr. Dubbin moved the adoption of the substitute amend-
ment.

Pending consideration thereof-

Representative Gautier offered the following amendment to
the substitute amendment:

In paragraph (b), after "as defined by law", strike the comma
and the balance of the amendment and insert a period.

Mr. Gautier moved the adoption of the amendment to the
substitute amendment, which failed of adoption.

The question recurred on the adoption of the substitute
amendment, which was adopted. The vote was:

Excused: Representative Culbreath

A quorum was present.



Prayer
The following was read by Representative John J. Savage:

From the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians:

Now I will show you the way which surpasses all others.
If I speak with human tongues and angelic as well, but do
not have love, I am a noisy gong, a clanging cymbal. If I
have the gift of prophecy and, with full knowledge, compre-
hend all mysteries, if I have faith enough to move mount-
ains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give everything
I have to feed the poor and hand over my body to be burned,
but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is not prone to anger
neither does it brood over injuries, it does not rejoice in
what is wrong but rejoices with the truth. There is no
limit to love's forbearance, to its trust, its hope, its power
to endure. Prophecies will cease, tongues will be silent,
knowledge will pass away. There are in the end three things
that last: faith, hope and love, and the greatest of these
is love.

The Journal
The Journal of February 1 was approved.

raised the point of order that Rule 10.8 required disposition of
a motion to reconsider when made during a special session. The
Speaker held the House had disposed of the motion to recon-
sider and the question now recurred on the motion that the bill
be introduced. Mr. Sweeny said the rule required completion of
the action being reconsidered and no motion to postpone would
be in order.

Mr. Harris said Mr. Dubbin's motion was out of order for
the reason that a motion to postpone under these circum-
stances would be the equivalent of a motion to reconsider and
leave pending. He said it seemed to him that if the House were
now on the main motion, then in either the last seven days of a
regular session or in a special session, it would be necessary to
immediately vote on the main question pending at the time the
motion to reconsider was originally made.

Mr. Gautier said he believed the matter must be completed
during the same day although he saw no prohibition against
postponing consideration until a later hour.

The Speaker ruled Mr. Dubbin's motion out of order. There-
upon, Mr. Shaw moved that consideration be postponed until
2 p.m. today. Mr. Powell raised the point of order that Mr.
Shaw's motion was not in order under Rule 10.8.

Mr. Harris, responding to Mr. Shaw's argument that the
main question could be disposed of at any time within the
same legislative day, said this would create the same problem
the Rule was meant to obviate merely within a shorter time
reference and there was no authority under the Rules there-
for.

Mr. J. R. Clark stated it seemed to him the most important
question for determination by the Chair was what the Rule
meant by the words, "shall be disposed of when made." If. he
continued, this phrase means that the House shall immediately
revert to the main motion, if the motion for reconsideration is
adopted, then no question of postponement can arise, there be-
ing no interval during which it is in order.

The Speaker, after a recess to review the situation, said
Jefferson's Manual, Section 816, stated that when a motion to
reconsider is decided in the affirmative, the question imme-
diately recurred on the question being reconsidered. There-
fore, it was the Chair's opinion that no motion inferior in
dignity to the motion to reconsider could be entertained until
the main question had been put. Mr. Powell's point of order
was sustained and Mr. Shaw's motion was ruled out of order.

Mr. Sessums suggested the absence of a quorum. A quorum
of 115 Members was present.

The question recurred on the motion to admit HJR 18-B for
introduction by the House, which was not agreed to by the
required Constitutional two-thirds vote. The vote was:

Explanation of Vote on HJR 18-B

This is to explain my reasons for voting against the motion
to introduce HJR 18-B during this Special Session. This pro-
posed resolution dealing with non-freeholders voting in bond
elections is outside the purview of the Governor's Call for this
Special Session. This is not an emergency and should be con-
sidered by the Legislature during the regular session in April
and May. This proposed Constitutional Amendment could not
be voted on by the people until November, 1972. I favor a
millage cap but believe that it would be a waste of the tax-
payers money to possibly cause the extension of this Special
Session to consider non-emergency proposals that can better
be considered during the 60 day regular session.

Representative J. Wertz Nease

Notice

Mr. Melvin gave 30 minutes notice of his intention to request
unanimous consent to proceed to the order of Introduction and
Reference for the purpose of introducing HR 19-B.

So the bill passed and was ordered immediately certified to
the Senate.

HJR 7-B-A Joint Resolution proposing an amendment to
Section 5 of Article VII of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, limiting the prohibition against estate, inheritance
and income taxes to natural persons only, and providing an
effective date.

-was taken up and read the third time as amended.

Representative Turlington offered the following amendment:

On page 2, lines 11 through 20, strike the entire text of
subsection (b) and insert the following: (b) OTHERS. No tax
upon the income of residents or citizens who are not natural
persons shall be levied by the state, or under its authority, in
excess of 5% of net income, as defined by law, or at such
greater rate as is authorized by a three-fifths (3/5) vote of
each house of the legislature or as will provide for the state
the maximum amount which may be allowed to be credited
against income taxes levied by the United States and other
states. There shall be exempt from taxation not less than five
thousand dollars ($5,000) of the net income subject to tax
over the maximum amount allowed to be credited against income
taxes levied by the United States and other states.

Mr. Turlington moved the adoption of the amendment, which
failed of adoption by two-thirds vote. The vote was:



On motion by Mr. Dubbin, consideration of HJR 7-B was
temporarily deferred.

SB 22-B-A bill to be entitled An act relating to govern-
mental reorganization; amending Section 20.16(1), Florida
Statutes; providing that the members of the board of business
regulation shall serve at the pleasure of the governor; provid-
ing an effective date.

-was taken up. On motions by Mr. Reeves, the rules were
waived and SB 22-B was read the second time by title and the
third time by title. On passage, the vote was:

HR 19-B-A resolution proposing a total review of Florida's
taxes.

WHEREAS, The citizens of the State of Florida join with
other citizens of the several states in questioning the constant
need for additional taxes, and

WHEREAS, Through recent elections and other activities
said citizens of the State of Florida have demonstrated their
desire for a complete tax reform to ease the burdens of the
tax payers, and

WHEREAS, it is apparent that the present tax base does not
evenly distribute the taxes according to the ability to pay, and
does not provide adequate funds to finance public demands, and

WHEREAS, simply initiating new taxes or new tax possi-
bilities will not solve the present pressing problems, and

WHEREAS, before any new taxes are initiated, there should
be a complete review and reform of all taxes paid by the
citizens of Florida, NOW THEREFORE,

Be It Resolved by the House of Representatives of the State
of Florida:

Section 1. That the House of Representatives shall consider
a total reform of Florida's tax structure, including full con-
sideration of any necessary reforms in administrative pro-
cedures, in the equity of existing business and consumer taxes,
and in the several taxes imposed upon the residents of the
State of Florida.

Section 2. That the House of Representatives hereby in-
structs its members and the Committee on Finance and Taxation
to consider all present business and consumer taxes, ad valorem
taxes, and proposed taxes, in order to present a plan for total
tax reform of Florida's system of taxation. Said plan shall
be presented to the members of the House of Representatives
prior to initiating any new tax program including a proposed
Corporate Income Tax, and shall be presented during the regu-



lar session of the Legislature in 1971. If no proposal is ready
and available, then no Corporate Income Tax shall be imposed
until such total reform plan is presented.

The resolution was read the first time by title.

'On motion by Mr. Melvin HR 19-B was read the second time
in full.

Representative Fleece offered the following amendment:

On page 1, strike all of lines 12 through and including line 15.

Mr. Fleece moved the adoption of the amendment, which was
adopted.

On motion by Mr. Melvin, HR 19-B, as amended, was adopted
and ordered engrossed.


Continuation of Consideration of the Special Order

Continuation of consideration of HJR 7-B

HJR 7-B was taken up, pending roll call.

Mr. Walker moved that debate be limited to thirty minutes
per side.

Mr. Hess offered a substitute motion that debate be limited
to twenty minutes per side, which was not agreed to.

The question recurred on the motion to limit debate to thirty
minutes per side, which was not agreed to.

Mr. Reed moved that the rules be waived and debate be
limited to two minutes per person with an additional ten
minutes per side to close debate.

Mr. Fleece offered a substitute motion that the rules be
waived and debate be limited to five minutes per person, which
was not agreed to.

The question recurred on the motion to waive the rules and
limit debate to two minutes per person with an additional ten
minutes per side to close debate, which was agreed to.

The absence of a quorum was suggested. A quorum of 118
Members was present.

The question recurred on final passage of HJR 7-B, as further
amended, which now reads as follows:

HJR 7-B-A joint resolution proposing an amendment to
Section 5 of Article VII of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, limiting the prohibition against estate, inheritance and
income taxes to natural persons only, and providing an effective
date.

WHEREAS, it is intended by this amendment to limit death
and income tax immunity to natural persons, as opposed to
artificial persons or entities created by or pursuant to law such
as business corporations, professional corporations, banking
associations, savings and loan associations and other entities
brought into being by compliance with state or federal statutes;
and

WHEREAS, this amendment will, however, continue to pro-
hibit imposition of these taxes upon trusts created by private
contract between settlers and trustees, but the Legislature
will not be barred from imposing a tax on those forms of busi-



ness trusts which obtain special statutory attributes from the
state of federal government, such as so-called "Massachusetts
business trusts."
