EXTRAORDINARY SESSION

Beginning of an Extraordinary Session of the Florida Legislature, convened by proclama-
tion of His Excellency, Haydon Burns, Governor of the State of Florida, under proclamation
hereafter set forth, held at the Capitol in the City of Tallahassee in the State of Florida.



Saturday, June 5, 1965



The following proclamation of the Governor convening the
Legislature in Extraordinary Session was read by the Honor-
able E. C. Rowell, Speaker of the House of Representatives:
STATE OF FLORIDA
Executive Department
Tallahassee
TO THE HONORABLE MEMBERS OF THE FLORIDA
SENATE AND THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES:
WHEREAS, it appears that the Florida Legislature con-
vened in Regular Session on April 6, 1965, will be unable to
make a proper apportionment of the Florida Legislature as re-
quired by Section 3, Article VII, of the Florida Constitution,
and the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitu-
tion, prior to its adjournment, and
WHEREAS, the responsibility for apportionment of the Flor-
ida Legislature is delegated to that body by the Florida Con-
stitution and it is my desire to preserve to the elected repre-
sentatives of the people of Florida this decision-making power,
and
WHEREAS, it clearly appears that the Legislature must now
either exercise its responsibility to fairly apportion prior to
July 1, 1965, or relinquish to the Federal Courts that portion
of our state sovereignty;
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Haydon Burns, as Governor of
Florida, by virtue of the power and authority vested in me by
Article IV, Section 8, and Article III, Section 2, of the Consti-
tution of the State of Florida, do hereby convene the Legisla-
ture of the State of Florida in extra session at the Capitol at
11:00 a.m. on June 5, 1965, for the sole and exclusive purpose
of reapportioning the Florida Legislature.



IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have
hereunto set my hand and caused the
Seal Great Seal of the State of Florida to
be affixed at Tallahassee, the Capital,
this 27th day of May, A. D. 1965.

Prayer by Dr. C. A. Roberts of the First Baptist Church,
Tallahassee, Chaplain:
Our Father, We confess our inadequacy when seeking to de-
cide between the right and the wrong-Between the good and
the bad. Even more, grant these wisdom as they tackle the
task of choosing between the lesser of two evils on the one
hand, and choosing between the better and the best on the
other. In Thy name. Amen.

Representative Daves offered the following amendment which
failed of adoption:
Add an additional subsection "(e) In Rule 6.10 delete the
words two-thirds" and insert the following: "majority" and
renumber remaining subsections.
Representative Dubbin offered the following amendment
which failed of adoption:
In Section 1, on page 1, line 2, following the words: "Regular
Session 1965" insert the following: "as affecting the first 20
days thereof"
Representative Gong offered the following amendment:
In Section 2, on page 2, insert after "Legislative Apportion-
ment" another line-"Congressional apportionment"
Mr. O'Neill called a point of order that, under the Constitu-
tion and according to the proclamation of the Governor, this
extra Session is limited to reapportioning of the Florida Legis-
lature, therefore, any amendment dealing with Congressional
apportionment would be out of order.
The Speaker ruled the point well taken and the amendment
was ruled out of order.

Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
That article VII of the Florida constitution be amended as
set forth below and that said resolution be submitted to the
electors of Florida for ratification or rejection at the general
election to be held in November 1966:
ARTICLE VII
APPORTIONMENT and CENSUS
Section 1. Composition of the legislature; terms. The legis-
lature of the state of Florida shall consist of a senate and a
house of representatives. Members of the senate shall be elected
for a term of four (4) years, and members of the house shall
be elected for a term of two (2) years. The term of members
of the legislature shall expire on the first Tuesday after the
first Monday in November at the close of the regular election.
Members of the senate and house of representatives shall be
elected as provided by law, and their terms of office shall be so
arranged by law that the number of offices expiring at the close
of each general election shall be as nearly equal as practical.
Section 2. Representation in the senate; apportionment.
There shall be fifty (50) members of the senate of the Florida
legislature, except as hereinafter provided. Each member of the
senate shall represent a senatorial district. Each county of the
state having one per cent (1%) or more of the population of
the state shall be apportioned into senatorial districts for each
two per cent (2%) of the population of the state, or major frac-
tion thereof, contained within its area. Each county with less
than one per cent (1%) of the population of the state shall be
apportioned into senatorial districts having more than one
county; these districts shall be referred to as multiple county
senatorial districts, and each shall have one representative in
the senate of the Florida legislature. Multiple county senatorial
districts shall be as equal in population as shall be practical;
but no such district shall exceed two and three-tenths per cent
(2.3%) of the population of the state. Additional districts shall
be provided to insure that no such multiple county senatorial
district exceeds this restriction. The counties composing a mul-
tiple county senatorial district shall be contiguous, except that
a county with less than one per cent (1%) of the population
of the state, not contiguous to any other such county, shall be
apportioned into a multiple county senatorial district with the
nearest county or counties each of which have less than one per
cent (1%) of the population of the state.
Section 3. Representation in the house of representatives;
apportionment.
1. Representation in the house of representatives shall con-
sist of a basic membership of one hundred (100) representa-
tives; except that additional members shall be provided by sub-
section five.



2. The membership shall be apportioned into two groups of
counties; that is, the counties each of which compose one per
cent (1%) or more of the population of the state, and the
counties each of which do not compose at least one per cent
(1%) of the population of the state.



June 8, 1965



3. Each county which composes at least one per cent (1%)
of the population of the state shall receive, of the basic mem-
bership of the house of representatives, one representative for
each whole per cent of the total population of the state. Those
counties which do not compose at least one per cent (1%) of
the population of the state shall receive all basic house mem-
berships not assigned to those counties which do compose at
least one per cent (1%) of the population of the state.
4. Those counties which do not compose at least one per cent
(1%) of the population of the state shall be divided into a num-
ber of districts which shall be equal to the number of repre-
sentatives not assigned to those counties which do compose at
least one per cent (1%) of the population of the state; such
districts shall be referred to as county representative districts.
Each district shall be apportioned one (1) representative from
the representatives allocated to such counties. No county with
less than one per cent (1%) of the total population of the state
shall be divided into more than one district, nor shall any
county be a component of more than one district. County rep-
resentative districts shall be as nearly equal in population as
shall be practical. Counties of each county representative dis-
trict shall be contiguous except that a county with less than
one per cent (1%) of the population of the state not contiguous
to any other such county may be apportioned into a county
representative district with the nearest county or counties that
each compose less than one per cent (1%) of the population of
the state.
5. After all senate seats and all basic house seats have been
allocated, such additional house seats shall then be allocated to
any county which composes at least one per cent (1%) of the
total population of the state whose ratio of total legislative
voting strength, giving equal importance to both house and
senate, would otherwise be less than nine-tenths of the ratio
that such county's population bears to the total population of
the state. The additional seats shall be known as representative
adjustment seats.
Section 4. Reapportionment; census. The legislature shall
reapportion the representatives of the house and senate at the
first regular session of the legislature following receipt of and
based upon the preceding latest decennial federal census.
Section 5. If any part of this joint resolution is declared
unconstitutional or null and void, then the entire resolution
shall be null, void and inoperative.

REMARKS BY MR. CREWS
Mr. Speaker, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Florida House
of Representatives: As many of you know, I have represented
for a short while Baker County whose population in 1960 was
7,363. Now, Mr. Speaker, in March of 1962, when the original
apportionment case from Tennessee, Baker vs. Carr, was handed
down by the United States Supreme Court, which opinion
stated that the plaintiffs stated a justiciable issue, one upon
which relief could be granted, I was-as many, lawyers and
laymen-immeasurably shocked. In June 15 and 17 of 1964, in
the Alabama case of Reynolds vs. Sims, the Colorado case of
Lucas vs. that state, the Maryland case, the New York de-
cision, and the Virginia decision, the principle as enunciated
in Reynolds vs. Sims of equal representation for equal num-
bers insofar as practicable became and is the law of the
United States of America. It is the Constitution which we
have at this very "Well" placed our hands upon the Bible and
raised our hands towards the heavens and swore to uphold.
Now, Mr. Speaker, the people of my little county obviously
have been good to me. They have returned me to the legislature
notwithstanding that we passed an act consolidating the three
public high schools, notwithstanding the fact that we intro-
duced and the legislature passed a bill to make the possession
of illicit whiskey a felony where there theretofore it had been le-
galized by mere fine-and I could cite other examples. But I
do not do my people a service if I refuse to take an affirmative
stand on this question of apportionment. I can return to my
people and I can face them and say how unpleasant it was but
that the duty was upon me as a representative to apportion the
legislature of Florida in conformity with the decisions of the
United States Supreme Court, enunciated in Reynolds vs.
Sims. Now, I know that is going to mean that Baker County is
not going to have, in and for itself, a representative. I know
that we will have to be within 'a district composed of two or
more counties. But I say this, that unless I discharge my duty,
unless every member of this House discharges his or her re-
spective duty, and we solve this most complex and manifest
problem, we will have done a disservice to the people of Flor-
ida, we will have done a disservice to our individual and
respective selves, and we will have done a disservice to the
Florida Legislature! For that reason, Mr. Speaker, ladies and
gentlemen of the House, I was glad to be the second co-intro-
ducer with the distinguished gentleman from Alachua, Mr.
Turlington, of House Joint Resolution 7-X, which I hope will
become a part of the basic law of the State of Florida. Thank
you, Mr. Speaker.
On motion by Mr. Chiles, the foregoing remarks by Mr. Crews
were ordered spread upon the pages of the Journal.
On motion by Mr. O'Neill, the House adjourned at 1:00 P.M.
to reconvene at 11:00 A.M. tomorrow.

COMMUNICATIONS
To the House of Representatives June 9, 1965
Florida Legislature, 1965
Dear Friends:
Last'Friday you adopted a Resolution most flattering to me.
It was gracious, generous and kind. I did not deserve it, but it
stirred the vanity of this old worn out ex-Legislator, and
brought afresh memories of fifty-four years ago when I was
an active member of the session of 1911.
A day or so ago one of our metropolitan Florida dailies ran
a column under the heading of "Fifty Years Ago" in which the
columnist complimented highly the Legislature which had just
then adjourned. The columnist said, it (the Legislature of
1915) "was the best session in many years" and I was about to
get mad when I remembered my Father, who had just retired
from the ministry was a member of the 1915 session, and had
occupied my old seat in the House. So, in retrospect I took off
my hat!
May I be permitted to reminisce just a little about the Ses-
sion of 1911, at least to mention three of my pet measures.
The first was vetoed, and I failed by one vote to get the two-
third majority to pass it over the veto. The other two are still
in the Florida Statutes; one, the Uniform Textbook law which
has saved school patrons and the state many millions, and
the other, the Harmless Error statute. I recall many of the
attorneys in the House at that time fought my bill vigorously,
but I also remember my fellow member Judge Glenn Terrell
voted for it.



The 1911 Session furnished a Governor, two Secretaries of
State, an Attorney General, two Justices of the Supreme Court,
two Public Service Commissioners, many Circuit Judges and
other ranking state officials. I am very proud of the House of
1911, however, I predict great things for you members of the
1965 Session which will no doubt surpass our record.
I note the Resolution about me was introduced by Dick
Mitchell and Bill Inman. Dick Mitchell has made an able mem-
ber from Leon County which county has two universities and
the many branches of the administrative department of the
state government located here to constantly pull on his coat
tails; Bill Inman well upholds the long line of good and solid
representatives from Gadsden. I well remember how his Father
took me all over West Gadsden by horse and buggy in 1910
and helped me roll up a big majority when I was a candidate
for the Legislature.
Dick and Bill let me say an especial thank you to you. To
all the members of the House I am humbly grateful to you
for your kind, generous and gracious action in adopting the
resolution.
Humbly and sincerely,
R. A. (BOB) GRAY

That the following amendment of Section 1, Section 2, and
9



Section 3 of Article VII of the Constitution of Florida is
agreed to and shall be submitted to the electors of this state
for ratification or rejection at a special called election as pro-

Article VII
CENSUS AND APPORTIONMENT
Section 1. Composition of the legislature; terms.-The leg-
islature of the state of Florida shall consist of a senate and a
house of representatives. The term of members of the legis-
lature shall expire on the first Tuesday after the first Monday
in November at the close of the regular election. Members of
the senate shall be elected for a term of four (4) years, and
their terms of office shall be so arranged by law that the num-
ber of offices expiring at the close of each general election shall
be as nearly equal as practical. Members of the house shall be
elected for a term of two (2) years. Members of the senate and
house of representatives shall be elected as provided by law.
Section 2. Representation in the senate; apportionment.-
The several counties of the state shall be separated by law into
legislative districts in the first regular session held after each
federal decennial census. Affinity of economic and political
interests and geography may be considered in establishing the
legislative districts, but no district may contain less than two
(2) per cent of the state's population, provided, however, ex-
ceptions may be made because of peculiarities of geography or
population density, but in no event shall a district contain
less than 1.5 per cent of the state's population. Population of
all counties shall be that reported by the U. S. Bureau of the
Census after the preceding federal decennial census.
Each legislative district shall be entitled to one (1) senator
for each two (2) per cent of the state's population or major
fraction thereof, provided, however, that the total number of
senators shall not exceed fifty-four (54). If the grouping of
counties should provide more than four legislative districts
with major fractions of one (1) per cent, the four districts
with the largest major fractions will be entitled to the addi-
tional senate seats, provided, further, that those districts with
major fractions which do not get an additional senator shall
be provided with one (1) additional member of the house of
representatives beyond that to which such districts would be
entitled under the apportionment section relating to the house
of representatives.
Section 3. Representation in house of representatives.-
Each legislative district established as provided in Section 2
shall be entitled to one (1) representative in the house of repre-
sentatives for each one (1) per cent of the state's population
or major fraction thereof, provided, however, that the number
of representatives shall not exceed one hundred eight (108),
not including the additional house seats assigned under Section
2 of this Article.

HJR 16-X-A joint resolution proposing an amendment to
Article VII of the State Constitution by providing for the size
of the Legislature, and providing a method for determining
apportionment.
Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Florida:

Section 1. That the amendment set forth below to Article
VII of the State Constitution is agreed to and shall be sub-
mitted to the electors of the state for ratification or rejection
at the next general election to be held in November 1966:
SECTION 1. The legislature shall consist of not more than
fifty (50) members of the senate, and of not more than one
hundred (100) members of the house of representatives. The
members of the house of representatives shall be elected for
terms of two years, and the members of the senate shall be
elected for terms of four years except as hereinafter provided.



The election for members of the house of representatives and
senate shall be at the same time and places.
SECTION 2. After the receipt of each federal decennial
census, the legislature shall reapportion its membership in ac-
cordance therewith. In the event the legislature shall fail to
reapportion itself by February 1 preceding the next general
election, the supreme court of the state shall determine the ap-
portionment of legislative seats.
SECTION 3. (1) In the establishment of legislative dis-
tricts the total population of the state shall be divided by
100 and the house of representatives shall be so apportioned
that each member shall represent an equal number of persons
so far as practicable; provided that no legislative district shall
contain a population which varies by more than fifteen per
centum (15%) from the quotient obtained by said division,
so long as the other requirements of this article can be prac-
ticably met. Two or more contiguous counties may be joined in
the establishment of legislative districts so long as it is neces-
sary to meet the provisions of this section.
(2) In the establishment of senatorial districts the senate
shall be so apportioned that each senator shall represent an
equal number of persons so far as practicable; provided that
each senatorial district shall be superimposed upon the legis-
lative districts established pursuant to subsection (1) so that
each whole senatorial district shall contain one or more whole
legislative districts; provided that no senatorial district shall
contain a population which varies by more than fifteen per cen-
tum (15%) from the quotient obtained by dividing the popula-
tion of the state by fifty (50), so long as the other require-
ments of this Article can be practicably met.
(3) Representatives and senators shall be elected district-
wide and reside anywhere within their respective districts.
SECTION 4. In the establishment of multi-county legisla-
tive or senatorial districts, no county shall be divided, and all
such districts shall be composed of contiguous counties. Any
new county that may be created, shall be entitled to one mem-
ber in the house of representatives, in excess of the limit pre-
scribed in section 1 of this Article until the apportionment fol-
lowing next thereafter, and shall be assigned when created to
one of the adjoining senatorial districts as shall be determined
by the legislature.
SECTION 5. The legislature shall no longer be required
to provide for an enumeration of the inhabitants of the State.
The last preceding decennial Federal census beginning with
the Federal census of 1950 shall also be the State census and
shall control in all population acts and constitutional apportion-
ments, unless otherwise ordered by the legislature.

PAIR VOTE
I am paired with Representative Beck of Putnam. If he were

"Yea" on the amendment to strike the enacting clause to HB
13-X.
WILLIAM G. O'NEILL

HB 13-X.
WILLIAM L. WADSWORTH
Representative from Flagler County
I am paired with Representative Crews of Baker. If he

voted "Nay" on the amendment to strike the enacting clause to
HB 13-X.
CLAUDE E. WINGATE
Representative from Nassau County
Mr. Chiles moved that the House now reconsider the vote by
which the amendment to strike the enacting clause to HB 13-X
was adopted.
On motion by Mr. Turlington, the motion to reconsider was
laid on the table.
EXPLANATION OF VOTE
Protection of the social, economic and political interest of
people residing in small counties should be secured and per-
petuated by the strong cords of a Constitutional amendment.
The advisability of Constitutional apportionment is to protect
the minority from possible excesses of a bare rough-shod ma-
jority. No bill should be passed until all hope of Constitutional
apportionment has been abandoned.
Accordingly, were I present, I would vote "Yea" to strike
the enacting clause, or "Nay" on the final passage of HB
13-X.

in regular session in 1967 shall be elected at the general
election to be held in November, 1966, and shall be composed as
follows:
(1) THE SENATE. There shall be three (3) senatorial
districts for each congressional district presently existing or
hereafter created within the state. Each senatorial district
shall be as nearly equal in population as practicable, but in
no event shall any senatorial district vary more than five per
cent (5%) from the senatorial district quotient which is ar-
rived at by dividing the population of each congressional dis-
trict by three (3). Each senator shall reside within his re-
spective senatorial district and shall be elected by the electors
from that district; provided however that where a congres-
sional district is entirely encompassed within a single county,
each senator from a senatorial district within said congress.
sional district shall run at large within said congressional
district. Each member of the senate shall be elected for a term
of four (4) years from each senatorial district except as
hereinafter provided. Consecutive numbers shall be assigned
each senatorial district throughout the state and each num-
bered senatorial district within a congressional district shall
be consecutive. Senators elected from even-numbered districts
shall be elected for a term of four (4) years and senators
elected from odd-numbered districts shall be elected for a term
of two (2) years. Thereafter all senators shall be elected for
a term of four (4) years.
(2) THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. There shall
be three (3) representatives for each senatorial district cre-
ated. Each representative from a senatorial district shall be
elected at large from within that senatorial district; pro-
vided however that when a congressional district is entirely
encompassed within a single county, each representative from
a senatorial district within said congressional district shall
run at large within said congressional district. Members of the
house of representatives shall be elected for a term of two (2)
years.
(3) REAPPORTIONMENT. After each congressional re-
districting and prior to the next ensuing general legislative
election, the legislature shall reapportion the senatorial dis-
tricts within the congressional districts in accordance with the
provisions herein.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that three fourths (%) of
all members elected to each house of the state legislature
have determined that an emergency requiring an early decision
by the electors of this state exists with reference to this
amendment to Section 3 of Article VII of the State Constitu-
tion and that a special election shall be held in November,
1965, submitting this amendment to the electors of the
state for approval or rejection.

PRESENTATION OF PORTRAIT OF FORMER MEMBER
AND SPEAKER, THE LATE
HONORABLE CHARLES DOUGHERTY
Mr. Sweeny introduced Mr. Dougherty Smith and Mrs. Mary
Routh Smith, grandnephew and niece of the late Speaker
Dougherty.
On motion by Mr. Sweeny, The Speaker appointed Messrs.
Sweeny, O'Neill and Storey as a committee which escorted
Mr. Coble to the rostrum where he gave the following remarks:
Mr. Speaker, Ladies and Gentlemen of the House:
It is with great pride that we the Legislative Delegation from
Volusia County and the County Commission of Volusia County
present to you a portrait of one of our County's most versatile
and prominent figures in politics from 1871 through 1915.
Charles Dougherty was born in Athens, Georgia, on Oc-
tober 15, 1850, and attended the public schools of Athens. He
graduated from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville,
Virginia.
Charles Dougherty took a great interest in the sea and this
interest motivated him to move to Florida in 1871 and he
settled near the City of Port Orange (which is adjacent to Day-
tona Beach). He also engaged in farming and planting. He was
elected to the House of Representatives in 1877 and in 1879
served as Speaker of the House of Representatives of the State of
Florida and continued to serve in the House through 1885.
In March 1885 Charles Dougherty was elected as a Democrat
from the 49th District to the United States Congress and in
1889 he was again elected from the 50th Congressional District

to the United States Congress. In 1891 he returned to the House
of Representatives, being elected as a member from Volusia
County and served in 1891 and 1892. In 1895 through 1898,
Mr. Dougherty served in the Senate of the State of Florida
representing Volusia County and in 1911 and 1912 returned to
the House of Representatives.
On October 11, 1955, Charles Dougherty died at Daytona
Beach and was interred in Pinewood Cemetery.
Charles Dougherty is the only member of the Volusia County
Legislative Delegation who has been honored in serving as
Speaker of this House.
Volusia County and the State were honored by his service
and lasting contribution to state government.
I would now like to introduce to you Mr. Don Emery, artist of
Daytona Beach, who was commissioned to paint the portrait of
Mr. Dougherty.
At the conclusion of the foregoing remarks by Mr. Coble,
the Sergeant-at-Arms unveiled the portrait of former Speaker
Dougherty which will be placed permanently in the House
Chamber.
The Speaker then accepted the portrait on behalf of the House
and gave the following remarks:
It is with pleasure I accept this portrait on behalf of the
House, and I wish to express gratitude to Mr. Coble, Mr.
Sweeny and to Volusia County for making today's presenta-
tion possible. I am particularly pleased because I served as
Chairman of the 1957-59 committee which initiated the gallery.
At that time the painting of the portraits was necessarily limi-
ted to the former Speakers then living, but it always was the
hope that ultimately all the former Speakers would be brought
into the gallery.
These portraits stand for something more than the men they
depict and the parliamentary law the men made by their de-
cisions. They serve also as reminders of great moments in the
history of our state. For almost unfailingly the mention of the
name of this Speaker or that Speaker recalls some memorable
milestone in the progress and development of Florida. What
Volusia County has done today well may serve as an inspiration
to families and communities of other past Speakers not repre-
sented here now.
On motion by Mr. Sweeny, the foregoing remarks by Mr. Co-
ble and the Speaker were ordered spread upon the pages of
the Journal.

C. A. ROBERTS
Representative from Union County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE
I voted against the amendment requiring districting, not on
the basis that I oppose districting as such. Under the Consti-
tutional interpretation of the U.S. Supreme Court that popu-
lation is the primary criteria in apportionment, it is my opinion
that districting would properly grant to each individual voter
in this state a more equal vote with every other voter. How-
ever, I feel the guidelines as established by the Supreme Court
could be met by HB 32-X. It is my firm belief that HB 32-X
would not pass the House of Representatives with the amend-
ment placed thereon, and failure of passage thereof placed
the House of Representatives in the position of not meeting its
responsibility in this extraordinary session. For these reasons



24














I voted against the amendment anticipating positive action by
the House of Representatives.
S. J. DAVIS, JR.
Representative from Seminole County
Representative Mitchell of Leon offered the following amend-
ment which failed of adoption:
In Section 3, Page 4, strike out Section 3 and insert the
following: "Section 3. Any county which is entitled to more
than one senator shall by an act of this legislature be divided
into as many residency districts as there are senators to be
elected from said county, such residency districts to be as
nearly equal in population as practicable. Any county or district
which is entitled to more than one member of the house of
representatives shall by an act of this legislature be divided
into as many residency districts as there are representatives to
be elected from said county or district, such residency districts
to be as nearly equal in population as practicable. Senators and
members of the house of representatives shall reside in their
respective residency districts and shall run for election county
or district wide, and be elected by the electors of the entire
county or group of counties within the district."

Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the
following: Section 1. Section 10.03, Florida Statutes, is amend-
ed to read:
Section 10.03 Representation in the house of representatives.
(1) Representation in the house of representatives shall
consist of a basic number of 100 seats, except that additional
seats may be provided to comply with the provisions of sub-
section (3) of this act. Each seat shall be filled by one repre-
sentative and shall have one vote, except as hereinafter pro-
vided.
(2) The membership of the house of representatives shall
be apportioned as follows:
(a) Each county which has, according to the latest federal
decennial census, at least one (1) percent of the population of
the state shall receive one representative seat for each whole
percent of the total population of the state or 4/5 thereof and a
like number of representatives.
(b) Those counties which do not contain at least one (1)
percent of the population of the state shall be combined into a
number of districts which shall be as nearly equal in popula-
tion as practicable, except that not more than three counties
shall be assigned to any one district. The number of districts
shall be equal to the number of basic representative seats not
assigned to those counties falling within the provisions of para-
'graph (a) of this subsection, plus such additional districts as
may be necessary to prevent the assignment of more than
three (3) counties to any one district. Such districts shall be
referred to as county representative districts. Each district
shall be assigned one house seat which shall be filled by not
more than three representatives. Each county representative
district shall have one vote which shall be apportioned equally
among the counties comprising said district. The vote of a rep-
resentative from such districts shall be 1/2 for a two county
district and 1/3 for a three county district.
(3) Pursuant to subsections (1) and (2) representation in

Representative from Okeechobee County
I am paired with Mr. Crews of Baker. If he were present he

CLAUDE E. WINGATE
Representative from Nassau County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON HB 32-X
On the opening day of the 1965 Legislature I took a solemn
oath to support, protect, and defend the Constitution and Gov-
ernment of the United States and of the State of Florida. Section
3 of this bill is patently unconstitutional on its face. This
section fails to treat all districts uniformly and equally. For
this reason it would deny the equal protection of the law to
all the people of Florida. I refuse to yield to the spirit of politi-
cal expediency prevailing in the Legislature as long as the
Constitution of the United States provides a clear light for my
path.
GEORGE B. STALLINGS, JR.
Representative from Duval County
CONSIDERATION OF HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION ON
SECOND READING
HJR 33-X-A joint resolution proposing an amendment of
Article VII of the Constitution of the State of Florida; provid-
ing for apportionment of the Florida legislature; providing
for submission to the electors.
-was taken up.
On motion by Mr. Stone, the rules were waived by two-
thirds vote and HJR 33-X was read the second time by title. A
roll call was demanded. The vote was:
