JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES


EXTRAORDINARY SESSION


Friday, June 25, 1965


Beginning of an Extraordinary Session of the Florida Legislature, convened
cellency, Haydon Burns, Governor of the State of Florida, under proclamation
the Capitol in the City of Tallahassee in the State of Florida.


The following proclamation of the Governor convening the
Legislature in Extraordinary Session was read.

PROCLAMATION
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 will be
unable to make a proper apportionment of the Florida Legisla-
ture as required by Section 3, Article VII, of the Florida
Constitution and the Fourteenth Amendment of the United
States Constitution prior to adjournment of the extra session
convened on June 5, 1965, and
WHEREAS, it is readily understood that much of the time of
the original 20 day extra session has been consumed in matters
of organization, receiving various and sundry plans, and the
searching of court opinions. All of these efforts tended towards
finding a reapportionment plan acceptable to the Federal
Courts. These preliminaries having now been accomplished and
with new evidence of a willingness to compromise, the Gover-
nor and the people of Florida are highly hopeful and fully
expect that the Florida Legislature, during this ensuing extra
session, will arrive at a fair and equitable solution in a manner
which will comply with the mandates of the United States Su-
preme Court.
As Governor, and in this instance, speaking in behalf of the
people of Florida, I am grateful that the members of the Legis-
lature have complied with my request that no other business
was undertaken which was outside the subject of reapportion-
ment, which was the limit of the official call of the extra session
which convened June 5, 1965.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Haydon Burns, as Governor of Flor-
ida, by virtue of the power and authority vested in me by Arti-
cle IV, Section 8, and Article III, Section 2, of the Constitu-
tion of the State of Florida, do hereby convene the Legislature
of the State of Florida in extra session at the Capitol at 11:00
a.m. on June 25, 1965.
This call shall be limited to state legislative reapportionment.
However, if reapportionment is accomplished within this time,
it shall be my purpose to extend this call to include Congres-
sional redistricting.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have here-
unto set my hand and caused the Great
Seal of the State of Florida to be
affixed at Tallahassee, the Capital, this
24th day of June, A. D. 1965.
HAYDON BURNS
Governor
ATTEST:
TOM ADAMS

Almighty God, as we pause to seek Thy help, let the hush of
Thy presence fall upon us that we may become aware of our
needs and at the same time recall Thy promises. Supply these,
our chosen leaders with mind and strength to know Thee and
Thy will. Help each one to know that Thou hast promised to
give inward strength to compensate for outward pressure, for
we pray in Jesus' name. Amen.

HJR 10-XX, HB 12-XX and HJR 13-XX were taken up, pend-
ing on motions by Mr. O'Neill that the House admit the meas-
ures for introduction and consideration by the required Con-
stitutional two-thirds vote, the Speaker having ruled that they
do not come within the purview of the Governor's call for this

MR. O'NEILL IN THE CHAIR
CONSIDERATION OF HOUSE GENERAL BILLS AND
JOINT RESOLUTIONS ON SECOND READING
HJR 18-XX was taken up. On motion by Mr. Thomas, con-
sideration of the joint resolution was temporarily deferred.
HB 19-XX-A bill to be entitled An act providing for legis-
lative apportionment; providing for the reapportionment of
the house of representatives of the Florida legislature; pro-
viding for fractional voting; providing for automatic reappor-
tionment; repealing Section 10.03, Florida Statutes; providing
an effective date.
-was taken up.
On motion by Mr. Thomas, the rules were waived by two-
thirds vote and HB 19-XX was read the second time by title.
Representatives Fee and Chiles offered the following amend-
ment and Mr. Chiles moved its adoption:
In Section 2, Page 2, Line 6 et seq. strike out All of Section 2,
and insert the following:
"SectioA 2: Members having fractional votes shall cast
such fractional votes on all questions on the floor of the house
of representatives, including but not limited to voting on the
final passage of bills, resolutions and memorials and on all
other motions and questions on the floor of the house of repre-
sentatives; and such fractional votes shall be applicable for
the purpose of determining a quorum of the house of repre-
sentatives. For all other purposes, including voting on all
questions in committees of the house of representatives, con-
ference committees, interim study committees, and any other
committee to which the member having a fractional vote may
be appointed by reason of his being a member of the house of
representatives, members having fractional votes shall have
the same vote, compensation, rights and privileges as other
members. This legislature makes this finding of fact: That
committees comprise one or more persons appointed to con-
sider, act on, or report on, any matter; That the selection of
committee members is predicated upon the individual's knowl-
edge of the subject matter, individual initiative, perseverance,
intellect and other personal characteristics peculiar to that
member in the judgment of the appointing person or body; And
that fractional voting on the part of committeemen would
greatly hinder, impair and probably defeat the objectives of
the committee system now prevailing and expected to continue
to prevail in the Florida legislature."
Representative Stone offered the following substitute amend-
ment and moved its adoption:
Strike all after enacting clause and insert the following:
Section 1. (1) The representation in the senate of the
Florida legislature shall consist of fifty-five (55) members,
each representing a district, and apportioned among the counties
according to the latest federal decennial census of population.
Until reapportioned according to the census of 1970 the repre-
sentation in the senate shall be apportioned as follows:

signed a district hereinabove and whose term of office expires
with the general election of November, 1968, shall be altered,
or abolished or the number of his district relocated outside of
his present district, then such member shall continue as a
senator for the county of his residence during the remainder
of his term and shall have an equal vote with any other sen-
ator, and the number of his senatorial district shall be indi-
cated by adding the letter "X" after the number of the district

RALPH C. TYRE
Representative from Columbia County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON HB 19-XX, AS AMENDED
It has been my privilege to vote, on behalf of the people of
Sumter County, hundreds and hundreds of times. Yet no votes
have caused me more anguish, more sleepless nights, more con-
flict with time-tested friends, than those I am casting on ap-
portionment of the Legislature. I feel so strongly, in fact, that
I am impelled to put these words of explanation in the perma-
nent record. On this specific matter of fractional votes, I am
totally opposed because lawmaking goes beyond simple arith-
metic. The personality of the men and women who serve in
legislative bodies inevitably shapes the product. How can there
be one-tenth of a representative speaking? This is an absurdity
to all who know the legislative process. Yet I would have voted
even for this had provision been made' for residential district-
ing, and countywide election, of Members serving counties
with more than one Member.
Now, as to the so-called Stone Plan, providing for multiple-
county House districts without districting in the counties hav-
ing more than one House Member: The Representative from
Sumter County cannot say to the people of Sumter that you
can vote your choice for only one Member of the House-and,
indeed, share that Member with another county-while the
individual voter of some other counties can cast votes for many
choices.
This is a perversion of the "one man, one vote" doctrine as
fundamentally wrong in its way as any of the examples of al-
leged misrepresentation cited to us in justification for depriv-
ing the smaller counties of their right to direct representa-
tion in the House.
E. C. ROWELL
Representative from Sumter County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON HB 19-XX, AS AMENDED
I voted against HB 19-XX, as amended, because its denial to
each County of its proportionate voice in the House of Repre-
sentatives repudiates the historic recognition afforded these po-
litical subdivisions. My amendment would have preserved the
integrity of the county unit. It would have apportioned the
Legislature in accordance with the Supreme Court's "one man
-one vote" decision. The fractional vote plan which I pro-
posed would have better served all counties. It would have been
approved by the Court. Equally important, it would have
worked. Its only weakness was that it was a new approach to
the solution of an old problem. My distinguished colleagues, in
the majority, were unable to comprehend the simple, fair and
impartial workability of the "fractional vote" plan. It was my
unpleasant duty to attend these "final services" for my county


E OF REPRESENTATIVES June 28, 1965

and others similarly situated. History will record this as a
dark day in the history of our great state.
A. J. THOMAS, JR.
Representative from Bradford County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON HB 19-XX, AS AMENDED
I renew the same objection to this bill as that which I regis-
tered on HB 32-X in the preceding Special Session. The dis-
tricting provision for Dade County violates the "equal pro-
tection of the law" requirement of the United States Constitu-
tion. Even though I have consistently supported districting, it
was always within constitutional limits. In good conscience I
cannot vote to impose something upon Dade County which
would not apply equally and uniformly to all counties of Flor-
ida having two or more representatives.
GEORGE B. STALLINGS, JR.
Representative from Duval County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON HB 19-XX, AS AMENDED
I voted "No" for two reasons: (1) because I believe that
each county of the State of Florida is entitled to a represen-
tative in the House of Representatives. (2) Because I believe
that representatives in the State Legislature should only be
elected county-wide.
CLYDE W. SIMPSON
Representative from Duval County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON HB 19-XX, AS AMENDED
I voted against the substitute amendment and HB 19-XX,
as amended, because I believe under the Constitution of Flor-
ida, that each county should have at least one representative;
and, further, the district in the substitute amendment of Lib-
erty, Calhoun and Gulf Counties is in two Senatorial districts
and I cannot see that this is "one man-one vote."
BEN C. WILLIAMS
Representative from Gulf County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON HB 19-XX, AS AMENDED
I voted in favor of HB 19XX as amended by the Senate pro-
viding for 58 Senators. I did not favor this as the best plan
for the State of Florida and Seminole County but voted for it
upon the premise that it was the only senate plan which could
be passed by the Florida Legislature in the 26th day of Extra-
ordinary Sessions. Failure to have passed an apportionment
bill, in my opinion, would mean the Legislature had failed to
meet its legislative responsibility and pass a bill prior to the
Federal Court deadline of July 1, 1965. This failure, in my
opinion, would have left apportionment to the discretion of the
Federal Courts, and I am opposed to court apportionment of
this state, except as a last resort. The bill as amended by the
Senate, in my opinion, is a last resort measure and one which
I hope will meet the approval of the court. However, I must
say I have reservations as to the constitutionality of combin-
ing small counties with large counties such as Seminole with
Orange to formulate a Senatorial District. Prior to the amend-
ment of this bill by the Senate, I continuously supported the
55 Senate plan and 109 House member plan which allocated
to Seminole County both a Senate and House seat.
S. J. DAVIS, JR.
Representative from Seminole County

Prayer by Dr. George A. Foster, Minister of Trinity Meth-

Eternal God, in whose design we are created, by whose provi-
dence we are directed and through whose love we are redeemed,
condescend to us now, we humbly beseech Thee, and grant us
Thy living presence. Where we are weak, strengthen us; where
we are without knowledge, instruct us; where we are without
hope, encourage and lift us; where we are without love, for-
give and love us. We rejoice in the privileges of freedom and
democracy, and pray that we may be always able and willing
to protect these privileges through our responsible dedications
and labors. Bless our fair state, we pray; bless its government,
its leaders, its industry, and above all else bless its people.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON SENATE
AMENDMENT 1 TO HB 19-XX
In addition to the previous votes I have cast against this
bill, the action of the Florida Senate which amended it gives
rise to another constitutional objection. The senate plan for
Duval County deprives it of an equal voice based on popula-
tion. By a clever subterfuge, Duval County is in effect giving
away two Senate seats to adjoining small counties, which do
not have sufficient population to warrant them. This deprives
Duval County of the "equal protection of the law" guaranteed
by the Constitution of the United States.
GEORGE B. STALLINGS, JR.
Representative from Duval County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON SENATE
AMENDMENT 1 TO HB 19-XX
I voted no because this 58 Senator plan is unconstitutional
and unfair for the following reasons: Duval and other large
counties grouped with two or more counties have only been
assured of one Senator. The smaller counties paired with the
larger counties have also been assured of one Senator even
though they may have a population of only 17,000 which is
not sufficient for them to justify one member in the House
of Representatives. Duval could have as many as four Sen-
ators maximum, but this could also be true in the case of
Nassau County having only 17,000 population or in the case
of St. Johns County having only 34,000, as these two counties
have been joined with Duval County in this 58 Senator plan
amendment.
CLYDE W. SIMPSON
Representative from Duval County

EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON SENATE
AMENDMENT 1 TO HB 19-XX
I voted nay on the 58 Senator plan, first because I feel
strongly it is unfair to Duval County. Under all other plans
Duval County would have had at least five Senators. Under
this plan Duval will have four, Nassau will have one and
St. Johns one. There are four counties smaller than Duval that
have three or four Senators of their own without having other
counties attached thereto. Under this plan it is possible for
either Nassau or St. Johns Counties to have four Senators,
and Duval only one Senator. I do not believe the Representa-
tives from Duval should subject our County to this possibility.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSI


I further feel and believe that the residential requirements as
set forth in the plan are obviously unconstitutional.
TOM GREENE
Representative from Duval County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON SENATE
AMENDMENT 1 TO HB 19-XX
There is, in reality, a 67 Senator plan because of the reten-
tion of Senators with unexpired terms. It gives the 600,000
people of Duval two Senators elected by 60,000 people of
Nassau and St. Johns. By the 1960 census, 17,000 people in
Nassau get a Senator and 30,000 people in St. Johns-get a
Senator. This is, in itself, unfair, but compare the 455,000
(census figure) people in Duval who will share four Senators
(113,000 people per senator). These ratios are not likely to
stand up in Court and I may choose to personally pursue some
action before the Court. The requirement that a Senator must
be elected from Nassau and St. Johns before Duval can have
more than one is highly obnoxious, when Hillsborough, Pinellas
and many others are not hindered by this restriction. Neverthe-
less, if this plan is held Constitutional, I plan to work with
this district delegation to promote the best interest of all of
its people, be they in Duval, Nassau or St. Johns Counties.
BILL BASFORD
Representative from Duval County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON SENATE
AMENDMENT 1 TO HB 19-XX
It is my opinion that the total amendment creates dis-
tricts that within themselves deprive the voters of equal vote
per person because of Senate seats being granted to counties
without any relation to population but the result of grand
barter clauses and direct appeal to senators embalmed with
their own importance and selfserving in their votes. Though
the porkchop has been chewed clean and lies bleached on the
desert of political history, there is no reason to vote for some-
thing that gives nothing in return.
WILLIAM L. WADSWORTH
Representative from Flagler County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON SENATE
AMENDMENTS TO HB 19-XX
The passage of the supposedly fair reapportionment plan by
this body leaves me with deep despair. My motivations during
this action were made to preserve an ideal-a philosophy of
government. That such a body as this Legislature should allow
the enactment of such a bill leaves me with heavy heart. The
principle of fair apportionment was by no means carried out,
but rather bent to suit enough to gain passage of the Act.
It is my belief that all men should be entitled to represen-
tation, with consideration being given to county integrity. For
if we are to have democratic government all interests must
be represented. My voting, I feel, reflects the last spark in
dying embers of a true democratic system in Florida, and
possibly our originally conceived form of government.
JAMES F. BOCKELMAN
Representative from Franklin County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON SENATE
AMENDMENT 1 TO HB 19-XX
This amendment expanded the inequities of the bill. It in
effect provides a Senator from St. Johns County with a popu-
lation of 30,034, a Senator from Santa Rosa County with a
population of 29,547 and a Senator from Nassau County with a
population of 17,189. This in spite of the fact that these Dis-
tricts should under the Court's criteria, each contain in excess
of 85,000 people. If the provision of Section 1 (5) of the
amendment permitting this be upheld, the Senate could just
as well have created one state-wide Senatorial District provid-
ing that no two Senators could reside in the same county until
each county had a resident Senator. This 67 Senator plan the
Courts have already held unconstitutional. The Legislature
failed its Constitutional responsibility when it refused to per-
mit each County a voice, and proportionate vote, in either
House. My "fractional vote" amendment to House Bill 19-XX
yesterday would have provided this. This amendment fashioned
the bill to meet the tests of both Constitutions, the Courts,
the people and the dictates of good conscience. Why any of my
distinguished colleagues, and particularly those from the


E OF REPRESENTATIVES 21

smaller counties, voted to deny any county further represen-
tation, I shall never understand.
A. J. THOMAS, JR.
Representative from Bradford County


EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON SENATE
AMENDMENT 1 TO HB 19-XX
I voted against this amendment for the same reason that I
voted against the bill itself. Both the amendment and the bill
are patently unconstitutional when tested by either the Federal
or State Constitutions. Both the amendment and the bill have
unfairly denied the smaller counties their proportionate voice
in one house of the Legislature. This is contrary to the require-
ments of the Court, the Federal and State Constitutions and
Good Government.
HOWELL LANCASTER
Representative from Gilchrist County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON SENATE
AMENDMENTS TO HB 19-XX
I voted against the Senate amendments to HB 19-XX because
in my opinion this bill is unconstitutional because of the in-
adequacy of properly apportioning on "one man-one vote"
and also, in my opinion, each county should have one Repre-
sentative as specified in the Constitution of the State of
Florida.

EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON FINAL PASSAGE
OF HB 19-XX
I voted NO on the final passage of HB 19-XX for the follow-
ing reasons:
(1) a. The House plan does not provide each county with
a Representative having a voice in the State Legis-
lature, which body created these counties as major
political subdivisions of the State of Florida. Thus,
taxation without representation has now occurred
in our own State of Florida with proper and fair
representation in the Legislature denied to 22 of our
counties.
b. County integrity throughout the state, and state-
level, quality government cannot be accomplished
by splintering large population counties into po-
litical ward-heeler districts. Our Florida political
heritage has proven through the years that better
government results in cities when officials run city-
wide; in counties when county commissioners and
other county officials are elected county-wide; and
our state Legislature must have county-wide or
larger subdivision voting to maintain state-level,
quality legislation.
(2) Nassau county having 17,000, St. Johns County hav-
ing 30,000, and Duval County having 455,000 all are
assured of only one Senator, despite the tremendous
difference in population. Further, it is possible that
as many as 4 Senators could be elected from Nas-
sau County which has only 17,000.

Strike everything after the resolving clause and insert the
following:
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

ARTICLE VII
APPORTIONMENT AND CENSUS
Section 1. Composition of the legislature; terms.-The Sen-
ate shall consist of not less than fifty (50) members and not
more than sixty (60) members, and the House of Representa-
tives shall consist of not less than one hundred five (105) mem-
bers, and not more than one hundred twenty (120) members.
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


25


two (2) years. The term of members of the legislature shall
expire on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in Novem-
ber 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 elec-
tion shall be as nearly equal as practical.
Section 2. The membership of the Senate and of the House of
Representatives shall be so apportioned that each member in
his respective house shall represent an equal number of per-
sons so far as practicable; provided, however, in the estab-
lishment of multi-county districts in the Senate or House of
Representatives, no county shall be divided and all such dis-
tricts shall be composed of contiguous counties; and, provided
further, that in maintaining the integrity of political subdivi-
sions the legislature may set off minor inequities in one house
by a balancing deviation in the other house, based on legitimate
considerations incident to effectuating a rational state policy,
as by assigning additional representatives or otherwise.
Section 3. After the receipt of each federal decennial cen-
sus, the legislature shall reapportion its membership in ac-
cordance therewith. The last preceding decennial federal census
beginning with the federal census of 1960 shall also be the

tutional apportionments, unless otherwise ordered by the leg-
islature.

PRESENTATION OF PORTRAIT OF FORMER SPEAKER
OF THE HOUSE AND FORMER GOVERNOR OF FLORIDA,
HONORABLE DAN McCARTY
MR. FEE OF ST. LUCIE PRESIDING
Mr. Fee presented Mrs. Dan McCarty, wife of the late
Governor McCarty, also Senator and Mrs. John McCarty,
brother and sister-in-law. He then introduced the following
guests: Justices of the Supreme Court of Florida, Justice
Elwyn C. Thomas, formerly from St. Lucie County, Chief
Justice Campbell Thornal, Justice B. K. Roberts, Justice
E. Harris Drew, Justice Stephen C. O'Connell, Justice Millard
C. Caldwell and Justice Richard W. Ervin; Mr. and Mrs. Paul
Shelley; Mrs. Jack Mathews and Senator Ed Price. Represent-
ative Fee then made the following remarks:
Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House:
You will recall that the program of hanging portraits of
House Speakers, when adopted, comprehended only the then liv-
ing Speakers. Through the energies of the Speaker's Secretary,
Mrs. Helen Rountree, and the wholehearted endorsement of the
present Speaker, the program is in the course of being ex-
panded to comprehend all past Speakers.
If any of you have ever wondered at the extremely close and
harmonious relationship that exists between the Senator from
the 12th and his co-member in the House, the explanation is
simple. Our grandparents were closely associated; our parents
were closely associated; and our children have grown, and are
growing-up, in close association. I might further add that

Mrs. McCarty and I have each become grandparents in recent
months-so the 5th generation has come into being.
My relations with the one whose memory we honor this day
began at an early age-so early, that I don't remember when
Dan was not a part of my life. Although he was about a year
older, by skipping I landed with Dan in the third grade. From
that point on we shared the same teachers in the same class-
rooms through High School. Through those years we enjoyed
the same triumphs and went down together in the same de-
feats-extending from our sand-lot rinky dink baseball team
through all branches of High School athletics. Thirty-five years
ago on the 6th day of last month, we received our high school
diplomas. We went to the University of Florida; he entered
the Ag College and I followed the legal route. After we got
out of school, I was his attorney until little brother John
developed enough legal know-how to take over.
In the meantime, Dan offered himself in public service; and
beginning with the Session of 1937, he represented St. Lucie
County in this Chamber for three sessions-being the Speaker
for the 1941 Session,-at that time, the youngest Speaker in the
history of the state-29 years of age.
World War II temporarily interrupted Dan's political career.
Shortly after the close of the '41 session, he was called up as a
First Lieutenant in the Reserve, from which rank he rose to
that of full Colonel. He was among those who landed on D-Day
with the 7th Army in the South of France. He came home with
the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, and the
French Croix de Guerre. In 1952 Dan was elected Governor of
the State of Florida, and on September 28, 1953, Almighty
God saw fit to take him from amongst us.
Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the residents of St. Lucie County,
may I thank you and the members of this House for permitting
us the honor of making this presentation. I present to you this
portrait of a former Governor-a former Speaker-and my
lifelong friend, Dan McCarty.
At the conclusion of the foregoing remarks by Mr. Fee, the
Sergeant-at-Arms unveiled the portrait of former Governor
McCarty which will be placed permanently in the House Cham-
ber.
The Speaker then accepted the portrait on behalf of the
House and made the following remarks:
It is with the greatest of pleasure that I accept this portrait
on behalf of the House. I know that every member in this
Chamber feels that Dan McCarty served his state well as a
member of this House, as its Speaker in 1941 and, finally, as
Governor of Florida.
It is my understanding that Dan's friends made this pres-
entation possible, and I feel that such a gesture is a great trib-
ute to the memory of Dan McCarty as a man and as a states-
man. We take great pride in adding his likeness to our gallery
of past Speakers.
On motion by Mr. Sweeny, the foregoing remarks by Mr. Fee
and the Speaker were ordered spread upon the pages of the
Journal.

E. AMOS SUMNER
Representative from Liberty County
SB 26-XX was ordered immediately certified to the Senate,
after engrossment.
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON SB 26-XX
My interest in retaining the maximum congressional repre-
sentation for my county and my area of Florida prompts me
to oppose this measure. Duval County can conveniently share
its large population with another District and this will give us
two members of Congress who would have promoted and cared
for the needs of our people. Then, too, we should consider the
fact that Don Fuqua is o f the outstanding young men in
Congress and has a record of able and aggressive representa-
tion which could suitably complement that of Charlie Bennett.
The Dade delegation is gleeful over the prospect of having three
Congressmen represent their one county even though two are
shared with other counties. Obviously this gives them a larger
vote and voice in Congress to satisfy their needs. Thus, the
precedent is already here. It also would give us an opportunity
to plan toward the next census when we hope to get another
Congressman for our area.
It was very enlightening to see so many of the self-styled
conservatives support this bill since it gave another member to
South Florida where the political philosophy is purported to
be more liberal. Clearly, I am motivated by what appears to
be my county's selfish interest, but the plan I prefer still meets
the population requirements and better serves our needs.

Williams to change his vote from "Nay" to "Yea".
The bill was ordered immediately certified to the Senate, after
engrossment.
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON HB 35-XX
My vote of "nay" was cast on this bill because it is my belief
that the districts being established (to meet the requirements
under HB 19-XX) for the purpose of electing a fraction of
the Dade County state representatives are not in accord with
true apportionment. If one man, one vote is to be truly carried
out, then all representatives should run in districts, and not
just a fractional number. Carried further, if Dade must district
then all multi-representative counties should be required to run
in districts.

ment to article VII of the constitution of Florida by amending
the same to provide for the legislature of the state of Flor-
ida to consist of a senate and a house of representatives;
requiring submission of any apportionment or reapportion-
ment plan to the supreme court of the state of Florida; provid-
ing for legislative apportionment; providing for census.

Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
That the amendment set forth below to article VII of the
state constitution is agreed to and shall be submitted to fhe
electors of the state for ratification or rejection at the next
general election to be held in November, 1966:
Section 1. Composition of the Legislature. The legislature
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 of repre-
sentatives shall be elected for a term of two (2) years. Terms
of members of the legislature shall expire on the first Tuesday
after the first Monday in November of the applicable general
election year. Members of the senate and the house of repre-
sentatives shall be elected as provided by law. Upon the adop-
tion of this amendment by the electors of the state, the terms
of all senators elected in the general election of 1962 and
representatives presently serving in the Florida legislature
shall terminate on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in
November of the year 1966, but the legislature may provide
for those senators presently serving in the Florida legislature
elected in 1964 to serve out the balance of their terms either
as senators for newly created senatorial districts or as addi-
tional senators designated by the letter "X." In the general
election of 1966, senators representing the even-numbered dis-
tricts as provided by law shall be elected for four (4) year
terms and the senators representing odd-numbered districts
where an election is necessary shall be elected for a term of
two (2) years. Thereafter, all senators shall be elected for a
term of four (4) years. Members of the house of representa-
tives shall be elected at said general election for a period of
two (2) years and thereafter at each general election for
terms of two (2) years.
Section 2. Senate. The legislature shall provide for a sen-
ate of not less than fifty (50) members and not to exceed a
maximum of sixty (60) members, and each Senator shall repre-
sent an equal number of persons so far as practicable, pro-
vided that, after any apportionment or reapportionment re-
quired as a result of a federal decennial census, the number
may be increased so as to allow any senators whose terms 1ave
not expired at the time of said reapportionment to serve out
the balance of the term for which they were elected. The legis-
lature may divide the state into geographical areas to be known
as senatorial districts with one (1) senator representing each
district or may provide for a lesser number of districts with
more than one (1) senator representing a district.
Section 3. House of Representatives. The legislature shall
provide for a house of representatives consisting of not less
than one hundred five (105) members and not more than one
hundred twenty (120) members, and each representative shall
represent an equal number of persons so far as practicable;
provided, however, in the establishment of multi-county dis-
tricts, no county shall be divided in making such apportion-
ment or reapportionment and all districts shall be composed of
contiguous counties; and, provided further, that in maintaining
the integrity of political subdivisions the legislature may
set off minor inequities in one house by a balancing deviation
in the other house, based on legitimate considerations inci-
dent to effectuating a rational state policy, as by assigning ad-
ditional representatives or otherwise.
Section 4. Legislative apportionment. Should this article be
ratified in the general election of 1966, the legislature shall be
apportioned according to an apportionment bill passed at the
extraordinary session convened in June, 1965, commencing with
the general election in November, 1966. The legislature shall
reapportion its representation in accordance with this article
in each general legislative session following the federal decen-
nial census. Such reapportionment shall be based upon the
preceding latest decennial census.
In the event the legislature shall fail to reapportion the
representation as required by this article, the governor shall,
within thirty (30) days after the adjournment of any regular
session, call the legislature together in extraordinary session
to consider the question of reapportionment and such extraor-
dinary session shall mandatorily be required to reapportion
its membership before adjournment and said extraordinary
session, so called, shall not expire until reapportionment is
effected and shall consider no business other than reapportion-
ment.
Section 5. Judicial Review. Upon the adoption by the legis-
lature of any apportionment or reapportionment plan, as pro-


July 1, 1965










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES


July 1, 1965


vided herein, the same shall be transmitted to the attorney gen-
eral of the state of Florida, who shall present said apportion-
ment or reapportionment plan to the supreme court of the
state of Florida within a period of fifteen (15) days after the
adoption thereof. The supreme court of the state of Florida
shall, thereupon, consider the said apportionment or reappor-
tionment plan and enter its opinion and judgment as to
whether said plan meets the requirements of the constitution
of the state of Florida and of the constitution of the United
States. If the supreme court of the state of Florida determines
that said plan does meet all the constitutional requirements, it
shall so indicate in its opinion and judgment and said opinion
and judgment shall be final as to the apportionment or reap-
portionment of the legislature of the state of Florida, subject
only to review by the supreme court of the United States as
to any question arising under the constitution of the United
States.
Should the supreme court of the state of Florida determine
that said plan does not meet the constitutional requirements of
either the constitution of the state of Florida or the constitu-
tion of the United States, it shall so indicate in its opinion and
judgment and the governor shall, within a period of fifteen (15)
days from the rendition of such judgment and opinion, recon-
vene the legislature in extraordinary session to continue consid-
eration of the question of reapportionment and said extraordi-
nary session shall mandatorily be required to reapportion its
membership before adjournment and to stay in session until
reapportionment is effected and a reapportionment plan is ap-
proved by the supreme court of Florida and shall consider no
business other than reapportionment. During such extraordi-
nary session of the legislature convened after disapproval by
the supreme court of Florida of any apportionment or reap-
portionment plan on constitutional grounds, the legislature
may recess during the consideration of the supreme court of
Florida of any plan submitted by the legislature through the
attorney general to said court. The legislature called under
this provision, after rejection by the supreme court of Flor-
ida of a reapportionment plan on constitutional grounds, may
adjourn only after the supreme court of Florida has approved
a plan. Should three (3) apportionment or reapportionment
plans proposed by the same legislature be rejected by the su-
preme court of the state of Florida as unconstitutional, then
the supreme court of the state of Florida shall proceed to
modify the last plan proposed by the legislature and submitted
to the said court to conform with constitutional requirements,
and said plan as modified by the supreme court of the State of
Florida shall be the apportionment or reapportionment plan of
the legislature the same as if it had been adopted by the legis-
lature until the next time for reapportionment as required
hereunder.

Section 6. 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 1960, shall also be the state census and
become effective on July 1, of the year following the year in
which such census was taken unless otherwise specifically pro-
vided by acts of the legislature.

On motion by Mr. O'Neill, the rules were waived by a two-
thirds vote and debate on the joint resolution was limited to 15
minutes per side.

The question recurred on the passage of the joint resolution
which failed to pass, as amended, by the required Constitu-
tional three-fifths vote of all Members elected to the House.
The vote was:

RICHARD 0. MITCHELL
Representative from Leon County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON CS FOR SJR 5-XX
I voted "NO" for the following reasons: (1) Action by this
legislature at this time on a Constitutional Amendment is
premature, and should wait for action by Congress on the
Dirksen bill; and the Florida District Court decision on the re-
apportionment plan passed by the Florida Legislature in its
second special session of 1965. I would wait for these bodies to
act as they have promised to do in a few months. (2) While
the cost of our Legislature is a primary concern, fair repre-
sentation is essential and must be most important to all the
people of Florida. Certainly every county must have a repre-
sentative in the State of Florida Legislature, as every county
is essential to the best welfare of the entire State, and the
needed functions of these counties in producing food and other
vital needs, should not be a disadvantage to them in represen-
tation in the Florida Legislature. Therefore I would not limit
our number of members.
CLYDE W. SIMPSON
Representative from Duval County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON CS FOR SJR 5-XX
The Florida Supreme Court in its Advisory Opinion to the
Governor, 150 So.2d 721, stated on January 31, 1963, that the
Federal court decision had eliminated from the state Constitu-
tion provisions limiting size of legislature. Judge Hugh H.
Taylor of the Second Judicial Circuit, Leon County, on June 18,
1965, ruled "Neither Section 3 of Article VII or Section 2 of Ar-
ticle VII or any other provision of the Constitution of the
State of Florida limits the number of members of the Senate
or House of Representatives of Florida that may be provided
for in a duly enacted statute." The Legislature enacted such an
apportionment statute earlier this week, HB 19-XX. My objec-
tion to both the House and Senate portions of this bill are set
forth on pages 14 and 21 of the House Journal of this extra-
ordinary session.
Apportionment statute HB 19-XX has been passed. The
Governor will permit it to become a law. The Federal court
will decide if it meets the Constitutional test. Why hasten the
passage of a Constitutional Amendment, CS for SJR 5-XX,
limiting the size of the Legislature. Should the Court reject HB
19-XX, then our passage of 5-XX would be an exercise in fu-
tility. If 19-XX be approved, then, and only then, should the
Governor reconvene the Legislature to finish its labor by pass-
ing the appropriate Constitutional Amendment.
For these reasons, I voted against CS for SJR 5-XX.
A. J. THOMAS, JR.
Representative from Bradford County
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON C S FOR SJR 5-XX
My reasons for voting "NO" are many, one of which is my
complete trust in the Supreme Court of the United States, and,
further, the one vote-one value system has been submerged and
diluted in so many ways that my conscience can not allow me












to support the proposition that a few can represent all, and
because in all counties excepting "Dade County", the winner
takes all, and, further, the principles in the non-subdivided
single county districts result in minorities in race, and in com-
mon political philosophies which are either under-represented
or are not represented at all. This creates the false theory that
destroys personal rights and freedom of choice, and is based
on the false premise that all electors think alike according to
their territorial location. The brain of man is not nourished by
his place of dwelling but by what he reads, what his family
believes, and his inborn concepts of right or wrong, and, fur-
ther, that here again we find an attempt to permeate the
individual legislator's desire to preserve himself and the will-
ingness of this legislature to create wrong to protect each
other. The safe seat bargain is not and should not be a part of
reapportionment and those who deal in such bargaining are
doing nothing but compounding a felony against the electorate.
And it is my opinion that the federal courts at any level should
realize their public responsibility to not go along with political
subterfuge and if they do, from their "Safe seats", I believe
that our federal court system, which is not entitled to political
immunity from criticism but is merely a servant of the people,
should be brought to trial in the press of this state for they
will have committed a grave mistake. And, further, there is no
reason to restrict the people by numbers to any plan that could
restrict experimentation in our type of legislative system.
