I can do no less here today than to try to find words to
express my humble gratitude for the very great honor I
have received by your vote and for the inspiring confidence
you have placed in me.
It comes to all of us during our lifetime to experience
moments of' great joy and of great tragedy; hours of victory
and hours of defeat. And I can tell you with all the earnest-
ness at my command that this moment as I assume the
Speakership of this House of Representatives is the proudest
of my life.

On this occasion I make you the one promise which I have
made you in the past: I will do my utmost to be fair to every

Member and to make certain that every Member is given
a courteous opportunity to be heard.
The session before us will not be an easy one. Within my
experience, there's never been an easy session from the stand-
point of hard work. Legislatures have easy sessions only in a
dictatorship. The people have a right to expect the utmost
of our energies and the best of our judgment in the function-
ing of an independent house of an independent branch
of the State government.
But in spite of the fact that all of us know we are in for
a great deal of hard work, from early in the morning to late
at night, I personally am optimistic that this will be a highly
productive session for the people of our State. For one thing,
I think the general level of ability and dedication of the
entire membership is exceptionally high.
We have a large number of seasoned, experienced veterans
back. In addition, I have been most favorably impressed by
the caliber of the new Members I got to know during a recent
gathering we had here. Although they come from diverse
backgrounds, I found they shared a universal determination
to get the job done.
I have had the opportunity to discuss with many Members
their prospective assignments to work during the days ahead.
I have been encouraged by the way so many have indicated
they would shoulder the burden of appointment to com-
mittees for which they were particularly well qualified, even
though these committees often involve a great deal of tedious
work and very few headlines.
Furthermore, it has been even more heartening to me that
Members who have sought particular committee chairman-
ships but had to be told they likely would not receive them
because their talents were needed elsewhere have almost with-
out exception accepted their disappointments with good grace,
fine sportsmanship, and expressions of willingness to work in
any capacity where they could be helpful.
Each of us is a part of Florida's oldest lawmaking body.
We are the direct descendants of the thirteen "most fit
and discreet persons" whom Congress said in 1822 should
constitute the new Territory's Legislative Council.
Yet, I am proud to report to you today, this oldest law-
making body has been catching up with the newest facilities
of business offices elsewhere so the 1965 House can devote
itself to the task for which the people of Florida sent us
here. That task is the consideration of laws for the public
betterment.
It is not so long ago, within the memory of people in this
chamber, that the electric roll call machine was first installed.
It was only a few years ago that each Member was provided
an office so he might transact the public's business, beyond
the formal consideration of legislation in the Chamber. Until
that time each Member had to answer his correspondence,
study proposed legislation, confer with his constituents and
perform other business at his desk here in the Chamber.
He took his telephone calls at a semi-public booth. Too, until
just a few sessions ago the Members of this House had, as a
practical matter, to rely largely upon the bill titles printed
in the Journal. They had no convenient access to the text
of the measures presented for their vote. Also, until recently
there was no public address system for the individual Mem-
bers, so that those in many places in the chamber had diffi-
culty making themselves heard.
This progress has been carried ahead in this session. Ex-
perimental use is being made of an electronic computer so
that the status of legislation can be known more quickly to all
in future sessions. The Committee on Rules and Calendar has
been provided a room of its own so that this Committee may
function more efficiently and, in turn, so the House may do its
job more efficiently. These are but two of the betterments which
will make the performing of your tasks not easy, of course, but
less burdensome from a physical point of view. We have insisted
that the people employed to help you be competent and that they
be informed the House expects them to do a dollar's worth of



work for each dollar of pay. In short, I believe that good law-
making demands the kind of facilities and the degree of ef-
ficiency you would expect in your own office, insofar as it is
possible to provide these under the special conditions of a legis-
lative session.
It has given me much pleasure to be in Tallahassee for many



S



E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 6, 1965

days prior to the convening of this session, and to be of what-
ever assistance a Speaker-designate can in the preparations
for a session by being easily accessible for conferences and de-
cisions. I want each of you to feel completely free to discuss
your problems with me-I will be only too happy to be of as-
sistance. The staff of the Speaker's office has been told to give
Members the right-of-way over all other callers, for as a Mem-
ber I know your time is limited during a session. Please let me
be of assistance in whatever way I can.
As we get ready to begin our labors, we all know that the
biggest problem we will face, as is invariably the case, is that
of state financing.
Every Legislature in recent times has faced the dilemma of
trying to finance the operations of State government adequate-
ly without imposing undue tax burdens on the people. This ses-
sion will be no exception.
I believe every person in this chamber wants to see the gov-
ernment of this State, the public schools, the institutions of
higher learning, the public health functions and so on, given
enough money to move forward as they should in a progressive
state.
At the same time, many of us are acutely aware that with
heavy tax burdens at the federal level and substantial increases
in state taxes during recent years, our people are paying about
as much for governmental services as they can afford. This is
especially true since under recent court orders county taxes on
many homes are being substantially increased.
Personally, I do not feel that I was sent up here by my peo-
ple to increase their taxes. Instead, I think my constituents
want me to do everything possible to hold the line against new
or increased taxes.
Fortunately, I believe, in fact I am convinced, that we can
finance State government adequately without increasing the tax
burdens on our people. The Governor and the six elected Cabinet
members, sitting as the Budget Commission, have worked out
a budget that will enable us to finance State governmental op-
erations at somewhat higher than present levels and still re-
main within anticipated revenue from present taxes.
It's admittedly a tight budget and allows a margin of only
some $13,000,000 as a cushion against the possibility of revenue
declines below present expectations.
Preliminary calculations of our own Committee on Appropria-
tions indicate an overall figure of approximately the same
amount may be reached although it is likely that some of the
individual sums will differ from those of the Budget Commis-
sion.
But the real point is that we can hold the line against new
taxes and at the same time provide enough money so every
State function can be carried ahead without hardship.
The heart of the problem is that we will be confronted with
numerous requests to increase the budget, either for general
State functions or for projects that would benefit our own
particular counties. Many of these requests will seem small
compared to the whole budget picture. One will be only $200,000,
another only $300,000, and so on.
Now every one of these proposals has merit. But before you
make a commitment to expend your time and energies soliciting
support for this or that program no matter how meritorious it
may be, I hope you will keep in mind that the fellow sitting at
the desk on your right, and the one on your left, likewise has
a similar program that he'll ask you to support.
Taken in the aggregate, these worthy programs would swab
up that cushion very quickly and go so far beyond anticipated
revenues that we would either leave here with an unbalanced
budget or be compelled to levy new or increased taxes.
Let me say at this point that I am not one of those who
believes we should simply appropriate money recklessly and
leave it to the Cabinet Budget Commission to hold back ex-
penditures until money was available to meet the appropriations
we had made. I consider this an abdication of our responsibili-
ties as members of the Legislature.



In connection with this question of a balanced budget, I am
reminded of a quotation from Mr. Micawber in David Copper-
field. In effect, Mr. Micawber said that if you stayed within
your income by a few pennies, the result was happiness, but
that if you exceeded your income by the same few pennies
the result was misery.














On another major question that will confront us, reappor-
tionment, we will gather information during the regular ses-
sion and we will designate a committee which will give us the
benefit of its deliberations soon after the special reapportion-
ment session begins.
However, I know I express the hope of most of you that no
ill-considered attempt will be made to bring any reapportion-
ment plan to the floor during the regular session. Any such
attempt would disrupt the orderly processes of the regular leg-
islative session.
Further, I am sure you will agree with me that any such
attempt, whatever its motive, would in the long run make it
more difficult to reach an equitable apportionment agreement
in the special session.
Once again, I want to thank you for the honor you have
paid me by electing me your Speaker. And once again also, I
want to assure you that I will do my utmost to be fair to
every Member and that I look forward to working with you
for a better Florida.

the Senate has adopted-
HCR 1
Respectfully,

Secretary of the Senate



HCR 1, contained in the above message, was ordered enrolled.
MR. O'NEILL IN THE CHAIR
The Chair recognized the Honorable R. O. Mitchell of Leon
to speak of the Honorable E. C. Rowell, Speaker of the 1965
House of Representatives.














REMARKS BY MR. MITCHELL
About fifty years ago there was born in a little town in
Florida named Oxford, a child who was destined to great serv-
ice for the people of his State. It was appropriate that he should
be born in Oxford for it was in later years, in another country,
where the name Oxford is better known that another event
occurred.
As I was thinking last week of the remarks I would make in
presenting the lovely portrait of the Speaker to the House, I
sought information from him concerning his background, his ed-
ucation, his war service, his marriage, his business and profes-
sional life. And believe me, he told me that I could not tell you
anything about him from the time that he was born until today
-and you know what has happened to him today. However, in
England, this man who serves us now and will so ably serve us
for the next sixty or ninety days and on into the next two years
as Speaker, met and married a lovely and beautiful English
girl. And from that marriage has come two beautiful daughters,
Barbara and Diane. But most of all, what you should know today
about E. C. Rowell that you do not already know, is that he
evidences his love, his humility, by the fact that in his house-
hold, almost as if she were his own mother, is Marjorie's
mother. And he honors and reveres Mrs. Aylott, for she is here
this morning, just the same as if she were his own mother. I
say this because you will get to know, as this session goes on
and you get to know him better, that E. C. Rowell will honor
and love you almost as if you were his own brother. So it is with
a great deal of pleasure that I take this opportunity to present
to you the portrait of your Speaker, the Honorable E. C. Rowell.
At the conclusion of, the remarks by Mr. Mitchell of Leon,
the Sergeant-at-Arms unveiled the portrait of the Speaker to
be placed permanently in the House Chamber.
Mr. Mitchell of Leon introduced Mr. Hugh Walter of Pom-
pano Beach, the artist of the portrait of the Speaker.
Mr. O'Neill of Marion then accepted the portrait on behalf
of the Membership of the House.

GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE
Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, my colleagues of the Cabinet,
Honorable Justices of the Supreme Court, distinguished mem-
bers of the Legislature and ladies and gentlemen.
It is with pride that I appear before this joint session of
the Senate and House of Representatives at your gracious in-
vitation to carry out the mandate of the Constitution that the
Governor "communicate by message to the Legislature at each
regular session information concerning the condition of the
State, and recommend such measures as he may deem expe-
dient."
But my pride is tempered by sincere humility and full realiza-
tion of the tremendous responsibility that has been placed in
my hands by the people of FLORIDA. I have but one goal as
Governor-to give the people of FLORIDA a state government
attuned to the needs of the times and dedicated to enriching the
lives of each citizen. The recommendations I shall lay before
you today are designed to assist in achieving this goal.
It is my duty to recommend those measures I deem in the best
interests of the people. It is your duty to weigh these recom-
mendations and to determine whether they are to be translated
into law. Under our democratic system, it is only you of the
Legislature who may enact laws. I place myself in your hands
with full confidence that your decisions will be right. I know
that your dedication to FLORIDA and our people is as great as
my own.
I pledge to you that the laws you enact will be administered
faithfully and with good spirit. Floridians are fortunate that
our forefathers had the insight to place the administrative
branch of state government under our unique and remarkably
effective Cabinet system.
The brief period I have sat in the Governor's chair has given
me an even greater appreciation of the Cabinet system which
has made the transition of one administration to another so
smooth and has provided the continuity of policies and services
so important to the proper functioning of our government.



S



I shall never be able to repay the debt I owe to my Cabinet
colleagues for steering me so carefully over the shoals during
these early days in new waters. I want the Florida Legislature
to know that we have an administrative team-a team in which
every member has a voice, but a team that works in harmony
toward the common goal.



E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 6, 1965

I wish to acknowledge to the Legislature the dedication and
competence of my Cabinet colleagues-Secretary of State Tom
Adams; Attorney General Earl Faircloth; Comptroller Ray
Green; Treasurer Broward Williams; Superintendent of Pub-
lic Instruction Thomas D. Bailey and Commissioner of Agricul-
ture Doyle Conner. In days past and for years ahead the sound,
stable and friendly counsel of our recently passed friend and
colleague, the Honorable Ed Larson, shall be sorely missed.
It is due in no small measure to these Cabinet officers that I
have the pleasure of reporting to you that FLORIDA govern-
ment is moving forward with progress in all fields.
Our State is prosperous, with millions of dollars in new in-
dustry established since the Legislature last convened in this
chamber, and our average personal income among the highest in
the Southeastern United States.
FLORIDA'S growth maintains its high pace. But this very
growth that expands our prosperity is also the source of our
major problems. It presents a tremendous challenge to us.
We must endeavor to meet and overcome current problems.
And with the sure knowledge of still greater growth, we must
adopt plans to solve problems that will develop in the future.
We cannot be content to merely try to catch up. We must over-
haul and pass them.
FLORIDA is prosperous, yes, but not all of our citizens are
prosperous. There are Floridians who are underfed and under-
clothed. There are Floridians who are afflicted. There are Flo-
ridians who are unfit to take their place in the labor force be-
cause of lack of education and training.
Too much of our greatest resource, our people themselves, is
being wasted. We must strive to develop the full potential of
our human resources.
We must move ever forward in our education program. We
must provide the training grounds in science and technology to
equip our young people for the space age of which FLORIDA
is so important a part.
We have built a wonderful way of life here in FLORIDA.
We must assure it by developing and safeguarding our natural
resources. We must take the necessary steps to expand our
economy, built on the three great keystones of tourism, agricul-
ture and industry.
I am gratified to report to you that race relations are pro-
ceeding in an orderly manner. Our people are practicing toler-
ance and understanding.
In relationships among all people, the Golden Rule should
prevail. Hate, with all its kindred evils, should be eliminated
from the hearts of men. Prejudice and bigotry, whether re-
ligious or racial, are damaging to our economic prestige and
tear down and destroy the fabric of human character. They have
no place in our government.
As we open this Legislative session, I strongly emphasize the
needs to strengthen our education, health, highway, conserva-
tion, research and training programs.
I would be remiss in my duties as Chief Executive if I did not
bring forcefully to your attention that we must accomplish a
new apportionment of the Legislature before July 1st.
We have a choice: Either we do the job ourselves under the
rule laid down by the United States Supreme Court; or we
throw in the towel, admit defeat and turn the task over to the
federal courts.
This is not a matter that can be brushed off. It is a solemn
responsibility to which we must face up. I regard the matter
of Legislative apportionment so seriously that I believe it must
be approached by special session of the Legislature that can
devote every bit of its experience and knowledge to developing
a fair and equitable solution within the mandate of the federal
supreme court.
I therefore respectfully request and recommend that you con-
sider no apportionment bills during this regular 60-day session
when your minds and energies will be concerned with appropria-
tions and governmental services.



I proclaim here and now that within a few days after final
adjournment of this regular session, I shall summon the Legis-
lature into special session to deal with the apportionment, and
only with apportionment.
I shall not interfere with your work in this field. Constitu-
tionally apportionment is solely the responsibility of the Legis-













lature. I have every confidence that this Legislature can and
will do the job. I will be ready at all times to give you any and
all assistance you may seek of me in reaching a solution. I
cannot believe that the FLORIDA Legislature is going to turn
over this responsibility and duty to the federal courts.
FINANCES
As Chairman of, and in behalf of the Budget Commission, I
present to you a balanced budget.
FLORIDA is in a healthy financial condition. We will end
this current biennium with 25 million dollars in excess of the
amount required to meet needed General Revenue appropriations
for the two-year period.
Revenue Outlook for 1965-67 Biennium
Personal income growth will continue to expand the volume
of retail sales upon which the Florida revenue system is heavily
dependent. Population growth is currently estimated to be ap-
proximately 4 percent annually. We will have more than 6,500,-
000 residents before the 1965-67 biennium closes.
On the basis of these economic prospects, we estimate that
existing taxes will yield General Revenue income of $1,071,400,-
000 for the 1965-67 biennium. This amount represents an in-
crease of 10.5 percent over the $969,400,000 anticipated in
1963-65.
Funds Available During 1965-67 Biennium
Under present law any unencumbered balance remaining in
the General Revenue Fund at the close of a biennium must be
transferred to the Working Capital Fund. It is then available
only for equalization transfers to the General Revenue Fund
during months when disbursements normally exceed receipts,
to be repaid later in the same year when receipts exceed dis-
bursements. I am of the opinion that the authority of Section
215.18, Florida Statutes, together with the shifting of the sea-
sonal pattern of revenue receipts makes changes in the Work-
ing Capital Fund now unnecessary. I, therefore, recommend
that provision be made for use of the estimated 28 million dol-
lar balance (25 million from current biennium plus 3 million
from 1961-63) of the Working Capital Fund be made available
to meet General Revenue appropriations for the 1965-67 bien-
nium.
With this change in the Working Capital Fund, total funds
available during the 1965-67 biennium to finance General Reve-
nue appropriations will amount to $1,099,400,000.
Recommended Budget, 1965-67 Biennium
We have recommended a total General Revenue budget
amounting to $1,085,655,761 for the 1965-67 biennium. This is
15.1 percent above estimated expenditures of General Revenue
during 1963-65. In the light of this financial forecast I can see
absolutely no justification for any new increased taxes during
this session. The budget includes $483,820,463 for operations of
state agencies, $577,189,137 for aid to counties, and $24,646,161
for state capital outlay projects.
Aid to county schools and junior colleges will total $548,100,-
000 during the biennium, an increase of $60,900,000. In addi-
tion, our recommendations provide for $33,319,000 for junior
college capital outlay from bond proceeds and uncommitted tax
receipts in the bond program.
Higher education operating expenditures are recommended at
$136,900,000, an increase of $23,200,000 from General Revenue.
In addition, the sum of $37,881,000 is recommended for capital
outlay from the bond program fund, including $7,000,000 for
the East Central Florida University and $5,000,000 for the new
West Florida University.
State institutions (including Mental Health, Sunland Train-
ing Centers, Child Training Schools, Prisons, Tuberculosis Hos-
pitals, and the School for the Deaf and the Blind) are recom-
mended to have $106,900,000, or $14,600,000 more than during
1963-65.
Provision has been made to start the acquisition of land



necessary for the continuation of our flood control and water
management projects and we have recommended $10,900,000 for
this purpose. Funds have been recommended to increase the
Highway Patrol from its present strength of 538 to 650, or an
increase of 112 troopers plus the necessary support personnel.
In all areas the Budget Commission's recommendations have



taken cognizance of increased financial requirements, whether
it be for students in our universities, welfare recipients, pa-
tients in our hospitals or new parks to be opened.

Detailed descriptions of the recommendation for each agency
are contained in the Report of the Budget Commission which is
now in your hands.
Included within these recommendations are the Budget Com-
mission suggestions for a solution to the serious problem of
compensation to the top executive and judicial positions in state
government. Salaries at these levels must be reasonably com-
petitive with comparable positions in other governmental juris-
dictions and in private industry. We have made a study of this
problem and commend our findings to your most serious atten-
tion.
The Budget Commission's recommendations will provide ade-
quate financing for state government at the current level of
services and will provide for such needed increases and expan-
sions as are justified at this time in the areas where growth is
demanding it.
This entire budget reflects many weeks of arduous hearings,
study and labor performed by members of your Cabinet, sitting
as the Budget Commission, which meetings were attended and
assisted by members of both houses of Legislature assigned by
your presiding officers. It provides for a program that will in-
sure the continued growth and orderly development of our State.
I recommend and, yes, urge that you pass an appropriations bill
based on this budget. In doing so, I repeat emphatically, no new
revenue or any new taxes will be needed, and I, therefore,
strongly oppose any tax increases.
TAXES
Due to the growth of this State since the turn of the century,
our tax structure has developed piecemeal. When our present
Constitution was established in 1885 it was only natural that
real estate should be made the base of the state tax structure,
for then we did not have available, in any appreciable amount,
such sources of revenue as taxes on cigarettes, beverages, race
tracks, utilities, intangibles, documents, general sales, gasoline
and many other forms of excise taxes that have since become
available. Real estate, then, was considered the tax base of
state, county, and municipal revenues. In later years the State
retired from the ad valorem field. With the increased demands
and needs of our people for public services we all know that
real estate can no longer serve alone as a tax base in our
counties and cities.
Our local governments are called upon to provide numerous
services that are not provided by the State. Thus far, they have
met the challenge. But, having served as Mayor of one of the
largest communities in FLORIDA for fifteen years and having
been active in the Florida League of Municipalities and fre-
quently associated with various county officials, I feel qualified
to tell you that these instruments of government, both county
and city, are in urgent need of help. Many of our present pro-
grams to provide tax revenue were conceived in haste of emer-
gency, and they contain inequities and disparities which should
be corrected and remedied.
For example, there are many, including myself, who think the
intangible tax is doing more harm than good. It has in many
instances stood as an obstacle to citizens and business concerns
of other states becoming residents here. Time will not permit a
comprehensive study of our tax structure to be made and com-
pleted in time for your consideration during this session. So I
recommend and urge that you establish a Commission for Tax
Reform, composed of persons from within and without govern-
ment, authorized, empowered and directed to make a thorough
study of the sources and conditions of our tax system on all
levels of government-state, county and municipal--pointing
out existing inequities and defects, with recommendations of
reform sought to be accomplished.
I would suggest that this Commission be composed of no more
than eleven members, five of whom would be laymen appointed
by the Governor, three of whom would be members of the Flor-
ida Senate appointed by the President and three of whom would
be members of the House of Representatives appointed by the
Speaker. To do its work effectively, this commission will also
require a competent staff of researchers.



I am not unmindful that the 1955 Legislature created a Citi-
zens Tax Council for a comparable purpose. But I point out that
this study is now nearly ten years old. Our rapid growth during



April 6, 1965



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES











10 JOURNAL OF THE HOUW

that decade renders it inadequate to serve the need for tax ad-
justment.
This Commission should be required to file its report with the
President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House, the Governor
and made public no later than June 30, 1966. It will be of great
value to the 1967 Session in producing a more equitable and
fair system of supporting government.
An area which would provide fertile ground for a Commission
for Tax Reform to plow, in my opinion, is the funds collected
by many of the State's regulatory boards. These funds, under
law, can be spent only by the boards by which they are collected.
Most of the boards have surpluses, and the total amounts to a
substantial sum. I would like for the Commission for Tax Re-
form to consider the feasibility of funneling all fees collected
by regulatory agencies into the general fund, from which the
Legislature would appropriate operating funds for the agencies
involved.
The entire picture of earmarked funds bears careful screen-
ing.
Because of special purpose taxes enacted during the past two
decades, 58.3 percent of the State's total income is not a part of
the General Revenue and thus escapes review by the Budget
Commission and the Legislature.
A total of 1.5 billion dollars in revenue is earmarked, either
by statute or constitutional provision, for specific programs
and is not available for appropriations for other purposes.
Certainly there is justification and merit in the earmarking of
some tax revenues for specific programs. But it is my belief that
a review of all earmarked funds will prove beneficial.
AUTO TAG SALES
For the immediate present, I am concerned about the high
cost of automobile tags and the effect the collection procedure
has on the pocketbook of the average citizen.
At the last session of the Legislature a plan was initiated
by Chapter 63-528, Laws of FLORIDA, to change the anniver-
sary date of auto tags from January 1, advancing one month
per year until 1970, at which time the license-tag-year would
run from July 1, to July 1. To implement the plan, provision
was made that during each of the next six years the annual
license would be the normal statutory tax, plus one-twelfth; or
stated differently, our citizens would pay thirteen months of tax
for a twelve month license tag.
July, as an anniversary date, was considered for the reason
that expenses during the Christmas holidays make it difficult
for many people to purchase their license tags in January or
soon thereafter.
As well conceived as the plan may be, it is my view that July
"and August traditionally have come to be vacation months
when families enjoy a holiday together and ofttimes become
tourists of our own State, thereby benefiting our economy.
The requirement that automobile tags be purchased in July
and August would, in many instances, defeat or curtail the
family vacation plan. It is, therefore, my recommendation that
you amend Chapter 63-528, Laws of FLORIDA, by providing for
an anniversary date beginning March 1, of each year. I urge
also that you increase the grace period allowed for their pur-
chase from 50 days to 60 days. This will mean that our citizens
will then have through April to buy their tags, approximately
halfway between Christmas holiday expenses and vacation ex-
penditures, and at a time of year when our state economy is
running at its highest.
By doing this, it will no longer be necessary to add the addi-
tional one-twelfth tax and our people will get the benefit of a
reduction; effective with the next license year.
I would ask the Commission for Tax Reform previously rec-
ommended to give top priority to the matter of high auto tag
costs.



S



The immediate reduction in the price of license tags by drop-
ping one-twelfth of the tax will cause some loss of estimated
annual revenue. But it is one that we can and must absorb.
Just as our citizens tightened their belts to pay the extra
month of tag expense in 1964 and again in 1965, our govern-
ment must tighten its belt to the extent of absorbing this ad-
justment.



E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 6, 1965

SENIOR CITIZENS
I am terribly distressed that many of our elderly citizens who
live in mobile homes and house trailers, located on permanent
home sites or in communities designed for their usage, have
been victimized by a recent decision of the FLORIDA Supreme
Court which described these facilities as personal property and
subject to ad valorem taxes.
I take no exception to the Supreme Court decision. The Court
was bound by existing laws and the Constitution.
I implore the Legislature to consider that under our present
Constitution a retired person residing in a mobile home valued
at 5 thousand dollars must pay the full ad valorem tax rate
against this home as personal property. At the same time his
neighbor residing in a conventional-type 5 thousand dollar resi-
dence is excused from all real estate taxes by virtue of the
homestead provision of the Constitution.
On the basis of current millages levied by cities and counties,
the permanent trailer resident owning a $5,000 trailer in Miami
would pay $36.43 per one thousand dollars valuation in per-
sonal property taxes, or $182.15; in St. Petersburg he would
pay $40.44 per thousand dollars, or $202.20; and in Tampa he
would pay $71.00 per $1,000, or $355.00. I emphasize again the
owner-resident of a conventional home pays no ad valorem taxes
on the first $5,000 valuation.
Those thousands of senior citizens who have chosen to live
here obviously are not the group that cause a drain on our
services such as schools. These are people on limited retirement
incomes, many of whom sold their residences in other states in
order to find peace and contentment here.
Previously, owners of mobile homes and house trailers have
paid taxes to the state through purchase of motor vehicle
licenses. Last year there were 118,000 such licenses sold in
FLORIDA. Using the average FLORIDA family retirement
income of $427.00 per month, this totals $48,000,000.00 in our
overall economy.
Now, many of them are faced with no choice but to leave our
state. Further, this tax situation is discouraging untold thou-
sands of others from coming here.
I recommend a Constitutional amendment, to be submitted to
the people at the next general election, which will have the legal
effect of exempting from taxation those Senior Citizens 60 and
over who live in mobile homes or house trailers. This exemption
would simply parallel the exemption for senior citizens already
established by the State of Florida on fishing licenses and per-
sonal property exemptions now extended to widows and disabled
war veterans.
Two years ago this distinguished Legislature created the
Florida State Aging Commission. The wisdom and experience, to
say nothing of the personal satisfaction of having our senior
citizens with us, inspire us to do all we can to assist them in
being comfortable and happy during their golden years.
This Commission has been handicapped by lack of financing
during the last two years. I strongly recommend that you ap-
prove the Budget Commission's recommendation of funds to en-
able the Commission to perform the task which you assigned it.
In 1957, the Employment Service Division of the Industrial
Commission renewed its program of service to Older Workers
over the age of 45.
However, I am calling upon the Legislature to enable the
Industrial Commission not only to intensify these efforts but to
establish within their program special services designed to as-
sist Senior Citizens in obtaining part-time employment and to
make available to industry their accrued talents and knowledge.
EDUCATION
Advancement in education is the foundation stone of our
progress. Equal emphasis must be given to every segment of our



public school system from the elementary school to the graduate
school. We realize that only through qualified and competent
teachers instructing reasonable class loads can we develop the
maximum of every young person's capacity and lessen high
school dropouts and withdrawals of first year college students.
The State's emphasis on education has been demonstrated
over the years by the assistance extended each of our 67 counties
for meeting their educational needs. The formula enacted in the



Am m A . .. . .. .











JOURNAL OF THE HOUSI



last session of the Legislature for a 75 percent state contribu-
tion to the Minimum Foundation Program is just another ex-
ample of the state recognizing its primary responsibility to
assist the counties in the cause of education.
I recognize that too many of our teachers are under-paid. I
am also quite aware that because of salary differential we are
losing the benefit of trained and talented educators to the more
lucrative offers of private enterprise.
Recent landmark court decisions, which will affect all counties
in FLORIDA, will provide new and additional monies at the
local level. These funds will be used at the discretion of local
officials and this money not only might well, but should, include
teacher salary adjustments.
Real estate, like any tax source, has its breaking point and
this relief can only be considered temporary. The long range
solution to the problem of money for education as well as other
state and local needs will only be found through a complete
tax reform as I discussed earlier.
During the past few years, FLORIDA has developed a com-
munity junior college program of which we are justly proud.
There are at the present time 20 junior college areas operating
in FLORIDA and the enrollment as of the fall of 1964 was
59,000. At the present rate of growth, before 1970, we will be
providing opportunities for all young Floridians to attend a
community college near their homes.
Enrollments in our five state universities this year total ap-
proximately 38,000 and are expected to double by 1970 and to
reach an estimated 153,000 by 1975.
I am pleased to report there is presently on the drawing
board of architects and under contract to them more than $80
million in university and junior college construction. On March
23rd, the State Cabinet sold an additional $25 million of
bonds previously authorized by the Legislature and being part
of the university construction program which was supported at
the polls by the citizens of FLORIDA.
The budget recommended by the Cabinet calls for the issuance
of another $50 million of these bonds and provides further for
$21 million to be found in surplus revenues of the utility tax.
This makes a total of more than $176 million dedicated to uni-
versity and junior college construction, both now and during
the coming two years. Even with this figure, the highest in the
history of this or possibly any other state, it is quite obvious
that our requirements for the immediate years will call for
future Legislatures to give equal or even greater emphasis to
this area.
With this kind of expansion greater demands for faculty as
well as buildings will be made on us each year.
Knowledge is our greatest asset. This is evident in the devel-
opment of skills and trades as in the academic endeavors.
Strong emphasis is urgently needed in the development of full
offerings of technical training in our Junior Colleges.
The leaders of tomorrow are produced in our colleges and
universities and for them there is no substitute. It is not enough
to provide the facilities; we must above all, provide quality edu-
cation and develop a far-reaching and efficient pattern for the
administering of our state university system.
ROAD DEPARTMENT
The fact that FLORIDA is the second fastest growing state
in the nation is a source of justifiable pride to every citizen.
The requirements for both services and facilities confront us
with problems at a rate inconceivable to most other states in the
nation.
I am glad to report that road construction today is at a record
peak in FLORIDA. Currently, there are $357 million in road
and bridge projects under way in our state-maintained highway
system.
However, even this multi-million dollar expenditure is not
enough. Our needs far exceed our ability to finance all the
necessary highway improvements.
It is also ironical that we have become a victim of our own



high standard of living. Our ability to purchase and operate new
automobiles in unprecedented numbers has imposed a tremen-
dous burden on our existing highway network.



April 6, 1965



The 265-mile Sunshine State Parkway (Turnpike) is an ac-
curate barometer of the traffic volume we must accommodate as
the number of annual visitors increases.
This multi-laned, limited-access toll road is one of the safest
traffic facilities in the nation, and earnings have far exceeded
the most optimistic projections of its planners.



E OF REPRESENTATIVES 11

FLORIDA is the most automobile-conscious state in the na-
tion. We have one vehicle for every 2.1 persons while the
national average is one vehicle for every 3.1 persons. The three
million Florida-owned automobiles plus the 2.5 million out-of-
state vehicles that tour our state each year create an avalanche
of traffic that would strain the most modern highway system in
the nation.
Operating with limited funds, we must exercise objective de-
liberation in preparing a priority construction program for
every district. We cannot afford the luxury of isolated highway
improvements.
The roadbuilding policy of this administration is to spend our
construction dollars to meet the most critical traffic problems.
I believe the priority construction program for our 1,150-mile
Interstate System reflects this policy.
Immediate priority has been given to the completion of In-
terstate Route 95 in Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
This route also will be completed from Daytona Beach to the
Georgia line. This program also includes the construction of
both the North-South and East-West Expressways in Miami.
Equal priority has been assigned the completion of Interstate
Route 75 into downtown Tampa to connect with the East-West
Expressway now serving that metropolitan area. Construction
of this final link will complete this 214-mile Central Florida
freeway from the Georgia line to its intersection with Interstate
Route 4 in Tampa.
Route 4, now complete from Daytona Beach to Pinellas
County, will be extended to downtown St. Petersburg.
In West Florida, Interstate Route 10 will be immediately com-
pleted from the Alabama line to Milton in Santa Rosa County.
Last week the State Road Department took bids on the missing
link to connect the completed segment north of Pensacola with a
22-mile project now underway in Alabama. Presently, a south-
erly route into the vicinity of Panama City is being sought for
the further extension of this superhighway.
I am happy to report that all of these limited-access highways
will be equipped with adequate rest areas that will include
picnic, water and sanitary facilities.
The warranted emphasis given the completion of our Inter-
state System does not detract from the importance of improving
and expanding our primary and secondary highway systems.
The four-laning of our most heavily-traveled U.S. routes and
continued improvement of our vital secondary network is essen-
tial to the safe movement of our record traffic.
The State Road Board and the 67 individual Boards of
County Commissioners must exercise sound judgment in select-
ing top priority projects. All must work in an atmosphere of
complete cooperation if we are to receive maximum mileage
from every dollar spent for road construction.
In the past 10 years, 488 motorists lost their lives on roads that
parallel canals. There are some 1,250 miles of this narrow and
hazardous type highway in nine South Florida Counties.
This condition must and will be corrected. At the direction of
the Governor, the State Road Board has initiated both long
range and emergency programs to eliminate these deplorable
conditions.
Obviously, the long range program will require complete re-
location of many of these highways. Emergency action is now
under way through the installation of guard rails and other
protective measures.
Our highways are actually our front yards and their appear-
ance should reflect our personal pride in the natural beauty of
our state. I have directed the State Road Department that all
plans for future highway projects must include attractive
beautifying landscape features.
FLORIDA TURNPIKE AUTHORITY

Expected to return 12.7 million dollars during the calendar
year of 1964, the Turnpike actually earned 14.2 million dollars.
The Turnpike Authority is confident revenue during the calen-
dar year 1965 will climb to an impressive 17.5 million dollars.
DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION
Under the new and able leadership of one of America's out-
standing business executives, who is serving without compensa-
tion, the Florida Development Commission has new life, zeal
and imaginative guidance.
Already the Florida Council of 100 and the industrial staff
representatives of the local chambers of commerce have been
welded together into the greatest sales team to ever represent
any state. A dramatic, but factual approach has been launched
to attract new investors of capital and developers of new in-
dustry. Supporting planned programs of personal interviews
will be one of the greatest and most effective advertising efforts
ever directed at the attraction of new payrolls.
Recent cooperative advertising programs directed at tourism
are proving their worth by the fact that this year our out-of-
state visitors are at an all-time high. Tourists pay approxi-
mately 17 percent of all taxes received in the state treasury. Of
even broader benefit are the billions of dollars that are pumped
into FLORIDA'S economy by out-of-state visitors.
I ask an amendment by this Legislature, increasing the num-
ber of commissioners from 9 to 13. It was the concept of pre-
vious legislation founding the Development Commission that
there be one commissioner for each congressional district and
one at large. Since that time our growth has increased our
congressional districts from 8 to 12. The increased effort and
time required and the many diverse interests of a FLORIDA on
the move, I believe, warrant these additional commissioners, all
of whom serve without compensation.
WORLD'S FAIR
FLORIDA'S new World's Fair exhibit is the single greatest
promotional effort ever in the history of our State. This ad-
ministration, working in concert with the Development Com-
mission, World's Fair Authority, the Cabinet, leadership of both
the House and Senate and the Citrus Commission was success-
ful in making free a true extravaganza for all to see.
A full scale aquatic production under sponsorship of the
Citrus Commission to the extent of 500 thousand dollars is the
backbone of the show. The New York World's Fair officials have
expended more than $300,000 to convert the 8,000 seat stadium
into a marine theater at our request, but at no expense to
FLORIDA. This expansion of the FLORIDA exhibit physically
moves us to the front row on the midway. It completely relieves
the isolation suffered last year, despite which the 1964 FLOR-
IDA exhibit drew 5,000,000 visitors.
Last year everything had a price tag ranging from twenty-
five cents to $3.00. This year, everything at the FLORIDA ex-
hibit will be free. No one will be able to miss the ski show,
porpoise show, Seminole village, alligator farm and all of the
beautiful exhibits in the FLORIDA pavilion. Our problem now
will be in handling the crowds.
Since this is a one-time effort of such magnitude, it warrants
and must receive separate and special appropriations considera-
tion.
RACING COMMISSION
The racing industry in the State of FLORIDA continues to
reflect a definite trend upward which is indicative of the overall
progress in the general economy.
Thoroughbred, Harness and Greyhound racing, plus Jai-Alai,
have accentuated their importance in the overall economic
structure of our state as well as the paramount role they play
as a tourist attraction. Every indication points to the establish-
ment of numerous all-time records in the four categories men-
tioned above during the present administration.
Thoroughbred breeding has become a source of tremendous
capital investment as there are now 133 horse farms in FLOR-
IDA. The quality products from this industry are now apparent
to all America.
All of racing is in high gear. For an eight-month period



ending March 3, 1965, overall attendance climbed 10.2 percent
from 5,000,000 to 5,500,000. Wagering increased 12 percent to
$304,000,000. The state's treasury received $23,000,000, an in-
crease of 12.5 percent.

INTERAMA
Today, I take pleasure in reporting that Interama is on the
threshold of fulfillment. For many years the citizens of FLOR-
IDA and Latin American countries have looked forward to the
day when the Inter-American Center Authority would become
an operating reality.
The site for this "Gateway to the Americas" is now being
readied. This 680 acre development in Greater Miami will pro-
vide our nation with its first permanent international exposi-
tion which will be a showcase of the American Way of Life.
It is anticipated that 75 million visitors from all over the
world will come to Interama during the first three years it is
open to the public. It will create thousands of jobs during its
period of construction and more important, it will provide
thousands of permanent jobs after it has been completed. Mil-
lions of dollars of income for our citizens and tax revenue for
our state will be generated by the successful completion of In-
terama.
Individuals who have contributed to the progress of this
project include everyone from interested FLORIDA citizens to
the President of the United States. Our able Congressional del-
egation was able to obtain a 22 million dollar loan for this
project and has introduced legislation to secure additional
monies.
Interama is located on an excellent site along the Intra-
Coastal Waterway with ample room for expansion. The site
has been cleared and filled and is now ready for construction of
roads, pavilions, buildings and installation of utilities. I have
instructed the State Road Department to expedite the planning
and construction of access and internal roads and can assure
you that the design of these facilities is now underway.
This is a unique and exciting project that will enhance the
economic, cultural and international interest of our State. It is
one which we display with pride.
HOTEL AND RESTAURANT COMMISSION
The Florida Hotel and Restaurant Commission is charged
with the responsibility of licensing and maintaining standards
of safety and sanitation by inspection for the protection of our
traveling public. This state-wide responsibility to insure com-
fortable and healthful conditions is being carried on by a
department presently limited to only 66 field inspectors.
Our public accommodations, which include hotels, motels,
apartments, rooming houses and restaurants consist of 61,000
licensed public establishments; 482,000 rental units; and over
870,000 seats for food service all of which represent a colossal
financial investment in FLORIDA. During the past year alone
nearly 315 million dollars were spent on construction and ren-
ovation of these types of facilities.
FLORIDA INDUSTRIAL COMMISSION
Another great service and regulatory agency is the Florida
Industrial Commission. In addition to its many other duties, the
Commission embraces the ever-important Employment Security
program, and it is making great strides in job placement and
the helping of youth and chronically unemployed. Plans are un-
derway for the opening of Youth Opportunity Centers in
Miami, Jacksonville, the Tampa-St. Petersburg area, Fort Lau-
derdale, Orlando, and Pensacola.
This federally financed program will find jobs for young
people who work part-time while in school, and likewise assist
our rural youth. It is estimated that these centers, as an ex-
ample, will serve per year approximately 12,000 young people
in Miami; 16,000 in Jacksonville, and 12,000 in the Tampa Bay
area.
The present total payroll of FLORIDA employers covered by
the Unemployment Compensation program is three billion dol-
lars. Last year, our non-farm employment was approximately
one-and-a-half million persons, and it is anticipated by 1970
our total employment outside of agriculture will be around two
million.
Twenty-five years ago, only 10,000 firms and less than 400,000
workers in FLORIDA were covered by Workmen's Compensa-
tion Insurance. Today, there are more than ten times as many



employers and some one-and-a-half million employees covered.
Looked upon as a model by other states, the Florida Workmen's
Compensation program has proven to be one of the most effec-
tive enactments of the Legislature, particularly in the fields of



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES














rehabilitation and industrial safety. We shall continue our vigi-
lance against on-the-job accidents to eliminate human suffering,
prevent loss of income to families and hold down the cost of
workmen's compensation insurance.
BANKING
SThe economic character and status of Florida is changing
and rising at a pace likened to the missiles and rockets that
are contributing so much to its transition.
Big industries, large scale commerce, and new and expanding
businesses are dependent on strong banking facilities. They re-
quire accommodations and services operating in full concert
with their every need.
The method of granting banking charters, for growth limi-
tations and changes of regulations, all will be likely subjects
before this Legislature.
I urge that your considerations, evaluations, and actions be
of the same progressive tenor as are FLORIDA'S new and de-
Smanding banking requirements.
CONSERVATION
Civilization is dependent upon its water, land, forest and
mineral resources. How these basic resources are managed in-
fluences man's health, security, economy and well-being.
If we fail to conserve them now through sound planning and
programming, we face disaster in future years. We cannot take
the bounty of Nature for granted. Our basic resources can be
exhausted.
Our State Board of Conservation recognizes the need for de-
velopment of programs of maximum wise use of our resources.
The Board of Conservation is cognizant, too, of the need for
assuring that our children and their children also have the
benefits of the resources which provide so much to us today.
The Board is concerned particularly with our fresh water re-
sources. Water literally is the fuel upon which FLORIDA runs.
We must have good water to drink. Our groves, pastures and
croplands would soon wither and die without it. It is one of the
prime essentials to industrial production.
Water usage will double in FLORIDA in the next decade. We
must invest now in water conservation if we expect to reap the
dividends of expanded tourism, agriculture and industry in
later years.
We must manage our water resources to prevent floods in
times of excessive rainfall, and to create reserves upon which
to draw in times of drought. Good planning requires that we
procure the lands needed for water storage pools.
FLORIDA has made great strides toward proper water man-
agement. In Southeast Florida, the Central and Southern Florida
Flood Control District has protected the people from floods
and released for community and agricultural development lands
that 20 years ago were considered useless. However, our mush-
rooming cities are daily increasing their demands for water. We
cannot gamble that the water will be available. We must assure
that it will be. Already, the space cities of Cocoa and Mel-
bourne are feeling the pinch of water shortages. Similarly,
several cities on the west coast and others around the state
are suffering water problems.
We must meet these present and future threats to our water
supplies. This will require sound technical planning and ade-
quate financing.
As the Tampa Bay area expands almost beyond belief, the
planned works of the Southwest Florida Water Management Dis-
trict and its Four Rivers Basin project will be called upon to
eliminate the floods; and to help provide the fresh water for the
people, the industry and the agriculture that will insure the
prosperity of the popular West Coast.
All of Florida benefits from these two great water manage-
ment projects. We must acquire without delay the necessary
water storage lands that these projects demand, not just so the
projects can accomplish their water management purposes, but
also so the great outdoors of this State can be protected and
preserved as we know it for the recreation of our citizens and
for the sanctuary of our abundant wildlife.



The Cross State Barge Canal, which is now well along with
major construction underway, presents to us a major crisis in
meeting the state's share of Federal-State obligations.



Congressional appropriations and the program of works by
the Corps of Engineers will soon overrun the available rights-
of-way and reservoir areas. It is the responsibility of the state
to acquire these lands.
Instead of delay, we should be thinking in terms of comple-
tion and availability of this vital transportation link, which
will make the beginning of a new economic era for industry,
commerce, business and agriculture alike. It is imperative that
the land acquisition monies be made available now and on a
continuing basis so that we will see this project reach the
earliest possible fulfillment.
Though this project was conceived and initiated nearly 25
years ago, its construction beginning has only become a reality
since the last session of the Legislature.
Thus, this session is the first to be realistically confronted
with the problem of immediately providing the required rights-
of-way funds.
Pollution of FLORIDA'S rivers and streams must be curbed
or controlled. We must broaden our research efforts and find a
way to prevent or control contaminants which are being in-
creasingly discharged from homes, factories and plants. Reck-
less pollution of our water and air is not only a serious hazard
to the health of our people, but it damages vegetation, livestock,
metals and building materials.
There must be adequate plans for the protection of our
beaches from the ravages of erosion and storm damage and
for their restoration. These beaches are indeed one of our
most valuable assets.
We must strengthen and enforce the salt water fishery con-
servation laws, press forward in the battle to control the fish-
killing Red Tide, and support the Board of Conservation's mar-
keting program. To safeguard our salt water fishery, I
recommend an increase in the enforcement personnel for this
Board.
FLORIDA FOREST SERVICE
Forestry conservation is another of the keys to FLORIDA'S
economic security. Our timber and allied industries produce
more than one billion dollars annually and provide employment
to more than 100,000 residents of our State. It is good business
for the state to support forestry conservation and to encourage
the reforestation and fire suppression programs.
I have every reason to believe that measures to strengthen
conservation procedures and enforcement will be presented for
your consideration.
Our woodlands are invaluable to us. Twenty-one million acres
of FLORIDA'S total land area of nearly 35 million acres are
woodland. And nearly 13 million acres of these woodlands are
owned by small independent timber farmers who support their
families from the sale of their forestry products. It is these
small timber farmers who will derive the benefit of sound for-
estry conservation programs by the State.
The paper industry is a major factor in our economy. In
addition to its payrolls, the industry spends millions of dollars
in research and supplies. Its woodlands-more than 4.5 mil-
lion acres-are open to hunters and fishermen and in coopera-
tion with the Forest Service picnic and rest areas have been
created within them.
Our forests are more than an economic asset. The woodlands
play a major role in conserving our soil; retaining water; and
they provide the habitat for our bountiful wildlife resources.
AGRICULTURE
Our gigantic and complex agricultural industry accounts
for an astonishing four billion dollars of our state's annual
economy. Inspection forces are constantly at work to insure that
our food supply is safe and wholesome. The work being done
by Florida's Experiment Stations and Extension Service is out-
standing, and it is in the interest of all Floridians that our
agriculture be not only progressive but prosperous.
With pride, I quote from an Associated Press dispatch out
of Washington on March llth of this year, as follows: "FLOR-



IDA has passed California in net income per farm and now
stands second in the nation. The U. S. Department of Agricul-
ture said the average FLORIDA farmer netted $12,224 in 1964.
This compares with a 1963 net of $9,311 and represents an in-
crease of 31 per cent. Arizona-a state with large farming
units-leads the nation with an average net of $19,363.00."

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES











14 JOURNAL OF THE HOU

Our growers and ranchers must have good roads for the dis-
tribution of their products and we must expand our research
in marketing, nutrition and utilization.
The Industrial Commission, even in recent weeks, has been
most effective in the problem of obtaining and retaining ade-
quate harvest labor so essential to all segments of agriculture
as well as citrus.
FLORIDA leads the world both in the growing and process-
ing of citrus. This is an outstanding example of what can be
accomplished by dedicated people working hard under the free
enterprise system.
This industry, so vital to our economy, has always solved its
own problems without seeking subsidies or handouts. I un-
derstand a united industry will present to you new legislation
designed to enable it to continue this commendable policy, in
light of rapidly increasing crop sizes and their attendant mar-
keting problems. I commend that legislation to your earnest
consideration.
FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY
The Florida Department of Public Safety reports that last
year 1,542 people died from traffic accidents; 87,055 were in-
jured; and actual property damage exceeded 50 million dollars.
The economic loss to Floridians is estimated to be the stagger-
ing sum of 266 million dollars. During the past few years we
have witnessed increased liability rates together with higher
premiums for other types of insurance policies, and the traffic
toll in most instances has been an important factor in these
increases. This tragic loss of life and limb and its resultant
financial burden must be curtailed. Our population increases
by over 4,000 families weekly, and although we welcome these
people to our State, it nevertheless creates additional problems
that we must cope with.
I urgently recommend that you take the necessary steps to
eliminate dangerous violators from our highways, both by laws
and appropriations. I most strongly request that you support
the Cabinet's proposals to employ additional Highway Patrol-
men in sufficient number to adequately enforce our traffic laws
and thus protect the public.
LAW ENFORCEMENT
My administration is committed to a policy of strict enforce-
ment of all laws with special emphasis on the anti-gambling,
pornographic, narcotic, and illicit whiskey traffic. Further, we
owe a duty to our citizens to stamp out as far as possible all
crimes of violence.
The law enforcement officers at all levels of Government have
the full support of the Governor in the performance of their
duties. I shall expect of them a faithful discharge of their
sworn responsibility. By the same token, I will not tolerate any
public abuse or disrespect of any law enforcement officer.
BEVERAGE DEPARTMENT
The Beverage Department is operating efficiently and effec-
tively. Tight enforcement is protecting against sales to minors
and those who make illegal sales after regulated hours.
The estimated yearly tax collection of all beverages in the
state based upon 1964 figures is $30,000,000, with the estimated
yearly tax collection of cigarettes amounting to $56,000,000.
However, legislation is needed to tighten up and augment
activities against the manufacture of illicit whiskey and its
transportation. Also, bills are now being drafted which will
assure the state of receiving all revenues due it under existing
statutes.
JUVENILE DELINQUENCY
The vast number of fine and promising young citizens of our
state are often denied due recognition because of the small per-
centage of juvenile delinquents whose conduct makes the head-
lines.



S



However, we cannot afford to overlook that small minority of
misguided young people whose ranks increase with the growth
of our population. Living in a world where violence is more
rampant than ever before, their crimes likewise tend to be
more violent.
Public opinion and personal pride are the two greatest re-
straints on human behavior for juvenile and adult alike. I sug-



E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 6, 1965

gest that the removal of concealed identity for lawless juveniles
will be the most forceful deterrent to reprehensible acts and,
thusly, would be the most effective single step in the reduction
of juvenile crime.
The ultimate solution to this problem rests not with the law
enforcement officers and the courts but with parents, teachers,
churches, public opinion, and our utilization of programs to
provide employment and training.
MOTOR VEHICLE COMMISSION
The steadily increasing number of registered vehicles in
FLORIDA has placed a tremendous workload on our Motor Ve-
hicle Commission.
In the past four years the number of Florida-owned vehicles
has increased by almost one-half million. Indications are that
this popular ownership of private automobiles will continue.
With the cooperation of this Legislature we want to improve
the dealer licensing program with stronger surety bond re-
quirements; make statutory corrections to provide better pro-
tection for our automobile owners against hidden liens; and
strengthen our vehicle salvage laws to further curb car theft
rings.
WELFARE AND HEALTH
No government service is more necessary than programs
directed to assist those in need of welfare and medical aid. We
have long been committed to the proposition that the needy
and afflicted are entitled to something more than a bare sub-
sistence, and we must continue to give them the best our State
can afford.
In addition to providing assistance, our Welfare Department
is undertaking new services, including guidance and social re-
habilitation, especially among our needy children. An increased
appropriation for the Welfare Department has been recom-
mended by the Cabinet.
A new, unique, but sound approach is being taken through
implementation of the Federal Economic Opportunity Act to
provide education, training and rehabilitation, especially for
junior members of those families in the lowest economic strata.
Projects under this program, though diversely varied are all
designed to prevent later additional welfare households.
This is a brand new Federally financed program that already
has been activated in scores of Florida communities. Projects
vary from nursery care of children of working parents to de-
velopment of skills and trades among teenagers and adults, all
of which point toward higher individual earning capacity and
standard of living.
As Governor, I know I enjoy the support and sentiments of
this Legislature in complimenting the civic groups and those at
the local levels of government for their ingenuity and the prac-
tical approaches being taken toward implementing this worthy
undertaking.
MENTAL HEALTH
Mental illness is the cause of more suffering and drain on
both our human and financial resources than any other single
condition. Although FLORIDA has made considerable progress
in the treatment of the mentally ill, there is still a great deal
to be done, not only to expand and improve our existing stand-
ards of care for our immediate needs, but also to plan for fu-
ture improvements to satisfy the demands of our rapidly in-
creasing population.
FLORIDA'S overall mental health program must be consoli-
dated within a single agency. Side-stepping the issue with any
less pronounced action can only lead to inefficiency and waste
of both professional skills and money. I am most pleased that
after two years of detailed study, the Legislative Council's
Committee on Mental Health has concluded that such reorganiza-
tion can most effectively be accomplished by assigning the re-
sponsibility for both community and hospital programs to the
Division of Mental Health of the Board of Commissioners of
State Institutions. To this, I wholeheartedly subscribe.



This would allow for maximum coordination for all mental
health services within one agency. In addition, there will be
cooperation with all other agencies, governmental and private,
which are, or should be, involved with the primary goal of
better mental health treatment for citizens of FLORIDA re-
quiring this humane assistance.














Under sound business practices, regionally based mental
health centers can be established in all major metropolitan
areas. This can be done by utilizing monies presently distribu-
ted among several agencies. Local communities must take some
definite financial responsibility for expanded community pro-
grams along with continued help from the state.
Likewise, it is absolutely necessary that we take every op-
portunity to afford ourselves of the knowledge and advantage
of research that has been accomplished in other areas of the
nation.

The implementation of an established, knowledgeable pro-
gram can save us the waste that would come from duplicated
research and effort.
DISTRICT COURT OF APPEALS
I join in the recommendation of the Florida Bar, the Ju-
dicial Council of Florida and the Appellate Judges' Conference
that the Constitution be amended and the necessary legislation
be enacted to establish a Fourth District Court of Appeal.
Also, to provide constitutional authority for the Legislature to
increase the number of judges in each District Court of Appeal
as the need arises.
Each of the bodies I have mentioned has made an extensive
study of the problems caused by the existing case loads in the
District Courts of Appeal. It is my understanding that each
member of the Legislature has been furnished with a copy of
their extensive and comprehensive reports.
CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION
Much has been said and done with respect to constitutional
revision by many legislators and other dedicated persons serv-
ing numerous outstanding organizations in FLORIDA. In pay-
ing tribute to this effort, which eases the way for a wiser
revision of our amendment-riddled constitution, I commit my
administration to a position of leadership. Two years ago, by
resolution, you placed on the ballot for the 1964 general election
a proposed constitutional change which would simplify the re-
vision of our present State charter. The first election returns
indicated that this amendment had failed to pass, and the
State Canvassing Board so certified. It later developed that
mathematical errors apparently had been made in some in-
stances, the correction of which would show that the amend-
ment had passed. Last week the Supreme Court of Florida
reviewed the controversy, and decided the amendment which
you proposed two years ago had been adopted by the people
and is now a part of our State Constitution.
Time will not permit your preparing for submission a re-
vised Constitution at this session which is already burdened
with other important matters. I, therefore, recommend that
you provide for the creation of a Constitutional Revision Com-
mission to be made up of members of the legislative, executive
and judicial branches of our government and a limited number
of laymen and that you direct such Commission to prepare a
proposed revision of the Florida Constitution to the next regu-
lar session of the Florida Legislature.



CONCLUSION
I have presented to you an ambitious program but one which
I believe includes our most essential needs. While it will not be
an easy one to fulfill, it can, with careful planning and prudent
leadership be achieved at a cost within the limitations of our
recommended balanced budget.
Money is not the sole solution to our problems. For example,
I have reviewed legislative proposals to strengthen administra-
tive procedures and services in the major areas of government
which I consider necessary to enable us to move FLORIDA
closer to the great destiny that is ours. On this journey we must
travel first-class insofar as we are able to pay the bill without
impairing our financial posture for the future.
Just as I have conveyed to you our pressing requirements as I
see them, I know that at the end of this session your actions
will have reflected your most serious expression with equal
sincerity, courageous vision and the same devotion to our State.
As I said earlier, I am deeply grateful to the members of our
Cabinet for their joint efforts in preparing for your consid-
eration a foundation on which we may build a house in which
the great family of all Floridians may live with pride and
abundant enthusiasm for the years ahead. I shall at all times
be receptive to the advice and counsel of your legislative lead-
ers and every member of the Senate and House.
The responsibilities of the Legislative and Executive
branches are clearly spelled out in the Constitution. I will, how-
ever, be available at all times to be of whatever assistance I
may provide as you go about your deliberations. I shall likely
ask you to again meet with me in joint session for special
presentation of a program or programs, which you will, I am
sure, agree justify emphasized consideration.
In the daily performance of my task, I see no East-no West
-no North-no South-no county so big as does not need help-
ful concern-no county so small as to be subject of neglect, but
one great State of FLORIDA.
It is in this spirit, calling on God's Divine guidance for us all,
that I leave with you in this message-my hopes, my dreams,
your Governor's aspirations for our state and its people.

number of the measure, and, if amendments are proposed
by the committee, the words "with amendments" shall
follow the identifying number. Committee amendments
shall be typewritten in full on amendment forms, number-
ed 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 shall be returned to the Chief
Clerk in the same manner set forth for making favor-
able reports. All bills, joint resolutions, resolutions and
memorials reported unfavorably shall be laid on the

agrees by majority vote to take up the substitute, then
the original shall be regarded as automatically tabled in
the same manner as a measure unfavorably reported.

Chief Clerk in the same number of copies required for
first introduction of a similar measure (an original and
five (5) exact copies for bills).

6.12-In all cases the House may resolve itself into a
Committee of the Whole House, and in
committee of such event the Speaker shall leave the
Whole House
Chair after appointing a chairman to pre-
side, who shall, in case of disturbance or disorderly con-
duct in the galleries or lobby, have power to cause same
to be cleared. Bills committed to a Committee 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 amendments denoting the
page and line shall be entered on separate paper by the
Chief 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 resolution
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 Committee of the
Whole House. If a bill or resolution has been reported
favorably by the appropriate Committee 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-
ference shall always be in order, except
Conference 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 hereby
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, fur-
ther, during the last six (6) calendar days allowed un-
der the Constitution for any regular session, it shall be a
privileged motion to move to discharge, appoint, or in-
struct House conferees after House conferees shall have
been appointed thirty six (36) hours without having












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 re-
jection 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 com-
mittee 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 deter-
mine.
6.14-Witnesses subpoenaed to appear before the
House or its committees shall be paid as
Fees for follows: for each day a witness shall at-
tend, the sum of seven ($7.00 ) dollars; for

Representatives of any select committee of The Legisla-
tive Council, under whose consideration the subject mat-
ter arose, to submit such measure in the name of The

introduction in regular order. In the absence of any such
Co-Chairman, it shall be submitted by the Member of
the House who is Chairman or Vice-Chairman of the
Council.

it shall be the duty of the Member, whose duty it was to
submit the same for introduction, to make all necessary
motions to steer the same to final roll call.

same for introduction, to move that such measure be
placed upon the Calendar, the unfavorable report of the
committee to the contrary notwithstanding, and the



Journal shall show that the motion is made pursuant to
this rule.

thee for this new day. May we make it better than yesterday.
Amen.

EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON MOTION TO RECESS
On April 9, 1965, the undersigned voted against having a
recess of the House of Representatives for the purpose of
holding a Democratic caucus to designate the Speaker and
Speaker Pro Tempore of the 1967 House of Representatives
for the following reasons:
(1) No such caucus should be held prior to the general elec-
tion of 1966 because, under court-ordered reapportionment,
there will be drastic changes in membership of the House and
many of the members participating in a 1965 caucus will not
be serving in the 1967 House of Representatives.
(2) It is our belief that the freshmen members of the 1965
House have had insufficient opportunity properly to assess
the qualifications of the candidates;
91



(3) In light of the movement for annual sessions to begin in
1967, no determination has been made as to whether the leader-
ship in such eventuality would serve for one or two years;
(4) The present system of having a Democratic caucus of a
previous House pre-select the leadership of the succeeding
House is wrong and should be changed so as to permit a legally
constituted House of Representatives to make a free and un-
fettered choice of its own leadership.
This statement of principles constitutes the only basis
for our opposition to said recess and that opposition has no
relation whatsoever to the able candidates who have offered
themselves for House leadership in 1967.

E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 14, 1965

HM 330-A Memorial to the Congress of the United States
expressing opposition of the Florida State Legislature to the
proposed elimination of the U. S. Army Reserve and the re-
organization of the National Guard.
WHEREAS, during our Nation's history, it has been necessary
to wage wars in order to destroy tyrannies which were dedi-
cated to the destruction of our status as a free people, and such
tyrannies continue to exist, and
WHEREAS, the very history of our country attests to the
wisdom of its traditional military concept that, as a democracy,
it may best deter aggression by the effective implementation of
relatively small but thoroughly trained professional armed
forces, adequately supported, however, by civilian components
of such Armed Forces, and
WHEREAS, such civilian components have proven them-
selves equal to the tasks assigned to them both in peace and
in war, and have provided our country with a reservoir
of personnel dedicated to its defense in numbers which its
economy could not support and which its citizens would not
tolerate as a standing professional armed force, and
WHEREAS, we adhere to the firm belief that although
weapons have changed and no doubt will continue to change,
as they have throughout the history of mankind, the suc-
cessful defense of our country, and of its people, must, in the
final analysis, depend upon the ability of the people of our
Armed Forces to take and to hold ground, and
WHEREAS, in such belief, we do not discount the effective-
ness of any weapon or weapons, but rather deem it folly to
rely solely on one instrument or on a few instruments of war
to the exclusion of all others, NOW, THEREFORE,
Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
That the Florida State Legislature hereby records its com-
plete opposition to the recent move of the Secretary of
Defense of the United States, the effect of which, if im-
plemented, will be the destruction of the U. S. Army Reserve
and the reduction of the National Guard to a status of in-
effectiveness.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a duly attested copy of
this memorial be dispatched to the President of the United
States, to the President of the United States Senate, to the
Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States,
and to each member of the Florida Congressional delegation.
