And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil: For thine is the
kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for
ever. Amen

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

I want to welcome you back to Tallahassee for 10 days
and I hope your visit here will be pleasant and productive
for all of us.
Before we get into tax reform, I'd like to discuss briefly
several other matters which merit your attention during
the days ahead.

Judicial Reform

For many long and often frustrating years, we've tried
to bring our judicial system into the twentieth century.

Many of our predecessors have tried too.
We've all failed, so far.
As governor, I now have no direct responsibility or au-
thority in the process of amending the Constitution.
But, as you know, I tend to show an interest at times ..
It is time, ladies and gentlemen, to have another try at
amending Article V of our Constitution the judicial
article.
It is time for us to work together to streamline our
judicial system, to fairly and fully finance our courts,
and to establish a system of justice which is swift ..
and fair. so that every man will truly feel it is his own.
I am therefore recommending that this Special Session
of the Legislature approve a revision of Article V .
to be submitted to the people for a vote during the March
14 presidential preference primary.
I'm both pleased and encouraged by the progress which
the joint select committee of your two houses is making
on an Article V revision which not only is sound and
reasonable but a flexible document as well one which
can meet the demands placed on our court structure in
the years to come.
I hope the joint committee will complete its work and
that you will all address yourselves to this proposal. A
lot of hard work, a lot of time and a lot of heart have
gone into it.
It is time, ladies and gentlemen, to put aside political
considerations .and offer the people a judicial reform
which is meaningful, sensible, and progressive.



OF REPRESENTATIVES 3

Pledge

The Joint Session pledged allegiance to the Flag, led by
Representative Reed.

Committee to the Governor

On motion by Mr. Dubbin, the President appointed Senators
Barron, Boyd, and Henderson, and the Speaker appointed Rep-
resentatives Nichols, Grizzle, and WVinn as a joint committee
to notify Governor Askew that the Legislature had assembled
to receive his message.

The Committee retired and presently returned escorting the
Governor.

Governor's Address











Billboards
The next matter is an urgent one. This probably is the
last opportunity you'll have to comply with the 1965 fed-
eral highway beautification act regulating billboards.
Failure to do so, as you know, will mean the loss of
$13 million to $15 million in federal highway funds next
year. Over the next ten years, it would result in a loss
of more than $150 million to our transportation program.
Failure to do so may also doom tourists and residents
alike to a continuing visual pollution along our Florida
roadsides.
This is one case in which aesthetics and economics are
in accord.
And I find it inconceivable that we would ignore both.
I strongly recommend that you vote us into compliance
with the federal law regarding billboards.


Trustees
It's also my hope that you will end the incentive we give
ourselves to sell the people's land. You can do this by vot-
ing to support the internal improvement fund from general
revenue.
And I recommend that you do so.


Minimum Foundation Program
And as we move to upgrade our criminal justice system
in one area-the courts-we can do no less in an equally
sensitive area-law enforcement.
I recommend funding of a minimum foundation program
for our law enforcement officers.
It's time we moved toward decent pay for those who
are responsible for our very lives.

It's time we gave the police officer something more than
bumper strip support.

It's time we fulfilled our commitment in this area.

And it's time we moved toward professional pay and
professional manpower as well in the law enforcement
agencies in this state and its cities and counties.


Insurance Guaranty Fund
I'm also asking you, in this Special Session, to consider
readoption of the insurance guaranty fund. Voided by a
technicality in its original adoption, the guaranty fund
is necessary to protect innocent policyholders from pos-
sible insolvency of insurance companies doing business in
Florida.


Ad Valorem

Although in my opinion the ad valorem tax reform law
already covers the profit-making enterprise which leases
government-owned property, some technical questions have
been raised. So that there can be no doubt, I am asking the



legislature to review carefully the adequacy of the present
law and amend it if necessary.



November 29, 1971



Tax Reform
Corporate Profits Tax
The Utilities Tax Credit:
This brings us to my principal reason for calling you
here today-to implement the corporate profits tax and
other tax reform measures which the voters have endorsed
in two primaries, a general election, and a referendum.
The people understand the cornerstone of this program
to be a corporate profits tax of five per cent, with exemp-
tions limited to $5,000 and without a host of credits
and loopholes which eat away at the potential revenue.
I recommend that you adopt precisely that kind of an
implementing bill.
I am pleased with most of the work your committees
have done in this regard, but there were, some decisions
that should be reconsidered.
Both of your committees have voted substantial credits
for the gross receipts tax paid by utility companies .
credits amounting to about $10 million.

I think this is unfair not only to the people but to
other taxpaying corporations as well.
Utility companies presently deduct their gross receipts
tax in computing their federal income taxes. One of your
committee drafts allows this same deduction for the cor-
porate profits tax.
The effect of this action is to add a credit for the gross
receipts tax on top of the deduction.
I don't think there are many in this legislature who
actually want to do that.
Nor do I believe that there are many in this Legislature
who think that utility companies should get a net tax
reduction next year while other corporations are paying
more.
Yet this, my friends, is what will happen if you grant
them even a 50 per cent gross receipts tax credit on top
of repeal of the corporate net worth tax.
One reason given for allowing these credits is that the
utility companies would otherwise pass on to the consumer
that portion of their state corporate profits tax which is
not deducted from their federal corporate profits tax.
We've taken a look at the substantial profits now en-
joyed by selected utilities, as well as those tax advantages
presently in effect and now before congress.
We've concluded, and I think you would conclude, and
I think other businesses would conclude, that there's little
or no justification for rate increases as a result of present
or proposed tax policies.
I would also point out to you that this Legislature
created the Public Service Commission, that a utility rate
increase would have to be approved by that commission, and
that this Legislature could, if necessary, prohibit a con-
sumer pass-on by statute.
I don't recommend this because I don't think it's neces-
sary.



For even if we assumed the entire tax would be passed
on to the consumer, the sum would be infinitesimal. In the



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES











case of one major electric company, it would amount to
about nine cents on a typical monthly bill. By comparison,
our proposed repeal of the sales tax on household utilities
is going to reduce that same bill by $1.60.

However good your intentions, to grant special credits
to utility companies on the assumption that you're pro-
tecting their consumers would be a mistake.
It should be remembered, ladies and gentlemen, that
the more you give to big corporations-any big corpora-
tions-in the way of credits, exemptions and other breaks,
the less relief you'll be able to give to the people.
And whether a citizen is served by a privately-owned or
a publicly-owned utility, the only way you're going to help
him is by providing enough revenue from the corporate
tax and other measures to make real consumer and prop-
erty tax relief possible.

Again let me urge you to take a critical look at any
attempt to write special privileges into this implementing
bill.

Ask yourself if it's fair to those thousands of corpora-
tions which will pay their full share of the corporate
profits tax regardless of how the bill is written.

Installment Exemptions
I'm also hopeful that your committees will reconsider
their decisions regarding installment sales income.
The committees, as you know, voted to exempt such in-
come from the corporate profits tax if it derives from a
sale made prior to January 1 when we hope the tax
will go into effect.
Such an exemption could have a staggering effect on
initial revenue-for example, a loss of 54 per cent from
one large retail chain alone.
To exempt from taxation the major portion of the in-
come of our largest and wealthiest retailers for up to
two years is not, in my opinion, reasonable.
Nor is it fair. The companies, for example, which make
their profits by leasing rather than selling enjoy no such
exemption.
Nor is it administratively sound for us to allow these
corporations to report their income on a deferred basis .
and not pay their state tax on the same basis.
Corporate net income should be taxed as it is reported.
That is the fairest and most sensible way. I urge you
then, to take another look at this exemption.

Carry-Back
And as a final word on the corporate profits tax im-
plementing bill, I strongly urge reconsideration of the so-
called "carry-back" provision approved by both of your
committees.
This is, as someone described it last week, a "time
bomb."
In a bad year, I'm afraid it could seriously impair the
state's fiscal system.



I believe we should allow corporations to carry forward
their losses perhaps for as much as five years.



But to allow them to recall their tax money several
years after it has been collected and spent by the state
is just asking for trouble.


Repealers, Rebates, Local Government

Repealers
The ultimate implementation of the corporate profits
tax will enable you to actually repeal certain taxes .
something which, for all of our rhetoric, we've very seldom
been able to do in Florida.
We have no justification at this time, however, for re-
pealing any taxes except those which are unfairly burden-
some to lower-and-middle-income families.
And in the enthusiasm of repealing taxes, we must not
lose sight of each dollar lost to the state treasury, and
what that loss means to the ability of state government
to effectively serve the people of Florida.
I am recommending to you the repeal of four state
taxes which together amount to a loss to the state
treasury of $48 million.
Each of them is a regressive tax-a glaring example
of an unfair system.
They include the sales taxes on household utilities and
apartment rent, the "cane pole" fishing tax and the state
share of the occupational license tax.
I said during the recent campaign that the corporate
profits tax will help us to keep our commitment to increase
homestead exemption for senior citizens, as well as stabilize
property taxes generally. And it will.
But we need to do more than that.
We need to start reducing property taxes.
But to do all these things and still keep up with our
growing needs will require revenue sources free of exemp-
tions, credits, caps and all the other devices with which we
so often dilute our efforts.
As I said so often during the campaign, the corporate
profits tax is no panacea.
It is a beginning in our effort to shift some of the tax
burden from those who can least afford it to those who've
been best at avoiding it.

It's a good beginning, but it shouldn't be expected to do
the job alone.

It can't as a matter of fact.

And this brings us to the subject of collection rebates.

Rebates

During the corporate tax campaign I pointed out, as
did many of you, that while Forida ranked near the bottom
in corporate taxes, we ranked first among all state gov-
ernments when it came to giving away sales tax collection
rebates.

I also proposed, in gatherings around this state during



the campaign, that the rebates be repealed in their en-
tirety as applied to the sales tax.



November 29, 1971



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



5











I now strongly recommend that:
The 3 per cent sales tax rebate be eliminated beginning
January 1.
That rebates for the collection of excise taxes on liquor,
beer, wine and cigarettes be eliminated.
And that the gasoline rebate be eliminated.
It should be remembered that if we don't repeal these
rebates, we will not be able to move up the repeal date
for the sales tax on household utilities and apartment
rentals from July 1 to January 1, 1972.
I'm sure we all want to do that.
And I'm sure the people want us to do it.
Furthermore, without repeal of the rebates, we could
not afford to repeal the state portion of the occupational
license tax, and, even more important, rebate repeal is
the surest way we can deliver on property tax relief for
local governments next year.
I can't overemphasize the importance of these measures
to the overall program.
They're necessary.
They're fair.
Let's consider the sales tax rebate given to dealers.

As you know, this amounts to 3 per cent of the amount
of taxes collected or about $25 million this fiscal year.

Florida, as I've indicated, has the highest effective re-
bate rate in the country. In fact, 23 states give no rebates
or credits for the collection of their sales taxes.

Many national studies have been done on the cost of
compliance with the sales tax law, and most of their
conclusions are summed up by a report to my office on
January 19, 1971, from the Department of Revenue.

The report concluded that (and I quote): "Collection
costs defy accurate identification and measurement."

The principle we need to establish on the state level
is that a business' cost of collecting taxes for the state
should be a cost of doing business.

And this is by no means a radical idea. Most business-
men, in fact, agree with it. That's why they already deduct
these collection costs from their federal income tax, as a
(quote) "cost of doing business."

It also should be remembered that a business has in-
terest-free use of all sales tax money it collects until that
money finally is remitted to the state. We estimate this
factor alone could account for as much as a $4 million
profit now being made on tax collection a profit which
will continue, of course.

I recognize it has been claimed that ending the rebate
would hurt the small businessman.

Let's look at that contention.

We find that 183,000 of the 226,000 dealers in this
state or over 81 per cent of the dealers, the really



small businessmen get an average of only 86 cents a
month in rebates,



November 29, 1971



On the other hand, ten of the dealers, the big ones,
get more than $2.2 million a year ... an average of $226,000
for each of them.
When the sales tax went up a penny in 1968, these
same interests received an effective 33 per cent increase
in their rebates.
I say consumer taxes are already too high.
I say we must stop this economic incentive for big-volume
special interests to push for more and more consumer taxes
year after year.
The question now is whether we are going to continue
to let a few big dealers in this state benefit dispropor-
tionately at the expense of nearly seven million people,
including small businessmen.
Let me give you an example of the incredible position
we're in now:
We estimate that Florida, in effect, is paying more than
$10 million in federal corporate income taxes for dealers
in this state because of the rebates.
This is because whatever it costs the dealer to collect the
sales tax is a fixed cost, whether we give him a rebate or
not.
Therefore, any rebate we give him can be considered
additional income on which he would pay 48 per cent to
the federal government.
So, in effect, we have revenue sharing in reverse in this
state. The state is sharing its revenues with the federal
government through the dealer rebate.
I submit that this must change.
The discounts for alcoholic beverages, cigarettes, and
gasoline are in the same category as the sales tax rebate.
They should be repealed.

Local Government
Another problem which must be met in this Special
Session is that of local government finance.
The decisions which were made in the late sixties to
limit property taxes are very much in keeping with the
thrust of this tax reform movement.
Property taxes are regressive and they have many bad
economic side effects.
But if we're not willing to replace the money they raise
for local government, we have no right to cut off existing
revenue.
I am therefore recommending that you create at this
Special Session a local government trust fund of 3 per
cent of the revenues raised by the sales tax; it would
be financed by the repeal of the 3 per cent dealer's rebate.
Local governments receiving assistance from this trust
fund would be required to roll back property taxes for
at least 80 per cent of the new money received. The mill-
age grandfather would be partially extended, with a roll-
back mandatory as new money is provided.
It is essential that we create the trust fund and, accord-
ingly, partially continue the grandfather at this Special



Session. I emphasize the word "partially," because the
object of this proposal is not to extend the 10-mill cap



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



but to provide the replacement revenue with which we can
safely and progressively allow it to expire .beginning
next year.
I do not, however, recommend that you establish the
distribution formula for the trust fund at this Special
Session.
That should be a major item for consideration in Feb-
ruary.
As you can see, repeal of the collection rebates is
essential not only for immediate consumer tax relief, but
for our program of local government aid and property
tax relief as well.
We should not consider settling for a hollow kind of
millage rollback which merely invites the cities to raise
service fees and bus fares which hit again at the con-
sumer.
We all know that this is exactly what they'll have to
do if we don't provide other revenue for them.

Conclusion
Now please let me share something with you.
The lesson of the tax reform battle so far is clear: in
order for some people to pay less, others have to pay
more.
Our object here today must be to shift the burden .
not try to make it go away, because it just won't do that.
The tax program I have presented to you is very deli-
cately balanced. It tries to equalize our tax burden and
meet our growing needs at the same time and that's
not an easy thing to do.
This is why I urge you to handle the package with
care. For if you kill any one part of it, you will almost
surely disable the others.
Twelve days ago, I pointed out to your committees that
virtually every tax proposal now before you was either
spelled out or clearly implied in the recent referendum
campaign.
That campaign was endorsed by more than 70 per cent
of the voters in possibly the biggest referendum turnout
in Florida history.
We cannot ignore such a mandate.

We cannot subvert it.

We cannot and we should not attempt to
diminish it in the eyes of the people who delivered it to
us.

When I ran for governor last year, my program was
tax reform not just a corporate profits tax, but total
tax reform. From the very beginning, I proposed adjust-
ment of the collection rebates, imposition of a severance
tax on phosphates and elimination of unwarranted loop-
holes and exemptions in existing state taxes and local
ad valorem taxes.

After the gubernatorial election last year, I was dismayed
at those who were saying the result wasn't a vote for the



corporate profits tax; it was a vote against the incumbent
governor.



And so, with your help, we took the program to the people.
And it was, indeed, a total program that we talked
about day-in and day-out from January until November.
Although the corporate profits tax was all that ap-
peared on the ballot, the people were aware that this was
a campagin for total reform.
But now I'm again dismayed at those who are saying
that November 2 wasn't a vote for repeal of the rebates;
or for aid to the cities; or for property and consumer tax
relief; or for a healthier revenue picture to enable us to
meet ever-growing demands.
No, the line now seems to be that this was just a vote
for the corporate profits tax and if we throw in a
few loopholes, well that's all right too.
Ladies and gentlemen, I doubt very much that this is
what the people are trying to tell us.
It's awfully easy for us to deceive ourselves in this
business.
Right now I'm sure that your (quote) "constituents"
(unquote) are telling you they don't want the rebates
repealed; or that credits are all right for some busi-
nesses; or that we don't need the money; or that every-
thing's going to be passed on to the consumer.
These are the same constituents, no doubt, who told
you that the corporate profits tax would fail for the
same reasons.
I suggest that while these are the constituents you and
I see most often, they're not the ones who voted with 70
per cent of the people on November 2.
As you consider each of the proposals now before you;
and as you consider each of the arguments thrust upon
you by spokesmen for the other side familiar argu-
ments delivered by familiar spokesmen as you consider
these things, I hope you also will do this:
Imagine, if you will, how each of these many questions
would be settled if they appeared on the ballot.
Imagine what the vote totals might be in each of your
districts.
And imagine what will happen to that wonderful faith
the people expressed in their system November 2, if we
fail them now when the mandate is so clear so
exceptionally clear.
It isn't idle rhetoric to say that there's a new day in
Florida it's a fact.

It's a day in which no state official needs to fear or
depend upon the special interests for his political survival.

But it is a day in which all public officials have reason
to respect, as never before, the will and the perception
of the Florida voter.

It's a day of opportunity for those who regard politics
not as a game but as a commitment.

And it's a day which mustn't be allowed to slip by us
unfulfilled.



Many of you made it possible when you voted to let the
people express themselves on this issue of tax reform.



November 29, 1971

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



I want to thank you for that.
Some of you made it possible by actively working on
behalf of tax reform.
I can't thank you enough for that.
And others among you have opposed this effort vigor-
ously and steadfastly.
Again I say come join us.
When I spoke to you in this chamber last June, I said
it was time to forget our dreams of what might have been,
and to work instead on what must be done.
Now, however, the people have made our dreams and
their mandate one and the same.
And it's time we pursued both until the job is
done.
Thank you.

Following the address, Governor Askew, members of the
Cabinet, and members of the Supreme Court were escorted
from the Chamber.

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

Reconvened

The House was called to order by the Speaker at 12:05 p.m.

A quorum was present.

Confirmation of Sergeant at Arms

The Speaker advised the House that he had designated
Philip W. LaBarge as Sergeant at Arms and requested the
concurrence of the House. On motion by Mr. Sessums, joined
in by Mr. Reed, the House agreed to the designation of Mr.
LaBarge.

Subsequently, the Clerk administered the Oath of Office to
Mr. LaBarge.


Remarks by Speaker Pettigrew
The Speaker addressed the House extemporaneously as
follows:
Ladies and gentlemen of the House, we have come a long
way since last November, 1970, in the battle for tax re-
form. As we begin our work today it is necessary for us to
put this session in the perspective of our work over these
past years.
We have already enacted a dramatic ad valorem tax
reform program. After many unsuccessful years of trying,
the severance tax on phosphates and minerals has been
passed. We have significantly altered and improved the
intangibles tax system and the documentary stamp tax.
We have already made a good start at closing unjustified
exemptions in the sales tax.
So there is nothing new to this House of Representatives
about tax reform. Rather, it is the culmination of a pro-
gram which many of you, and many of us, both in the
Legislature and in the Executive Branches, have been



pursuing for several years. We complete this particular
push for statewide tax reform with the enactment of these
programs outlined by the Governor today. This does not



mean of course the end of tax reform, because if we can
leave this session with clean hands we can turn our sights
toward an even bigger challenge in tax reform-Washington.

If we can define tax reform as the ending of inequitable
taxes so that lower and middle income taxpayers do not
pay more than their fair share, and the redressing of the
present fiscal imbalance through meaningful revenue shar-
ing between state and federal government, then it is clear
that the federal tax structure in this country is outrageous-
ly in need of reform. Perhaps next spring during our Presi-
dential Preference Primary, the various candidates can be
put on the spot on matters of tax reform, and the need for
federal relief and federal reforms will become more clear
to both our voters and to the people of this country.

But that is the view from the top of the hill. First we
must attend to our own situation. There is no reason why
this Legislature cannot fully and intelligently consider and
"dispose of the entire agenda presented to us by the Gover-
nor. What is there that is new to us ? The Cane Pole Fish-
ing Tax repeal ? Ask Representative Kershaw. Repeal of the
Rental Sales Tax? The Minority Leader and I introduced
the repeal of that tax last session and this House passed
it twice. Repeal of collection allowances under the Sales
Tax was completely studied in the House over a year ago
by a Special Revenue Study Commission appointed by
Speaker Schultz and Chaired by Representative Reeves.
That committee recommended complete repeal of collection
allowances. The question of the Minimum Foundation Pro-
gram for Law Enforcement ? Ask Representative Chapman
and Representative Blackburn, both of whom have led that
fight.

The same is true of Article V. We have revisited that
subject; we know what the issues are. Committee work on
the ratio study bills and other ad valorem tax bills has al-
ready been done. Billboard and junkyard legislation was
adopted by the House last spring. And so it is with each
issue before this Special Session. This is not to imply in
any way that this session is called merely to enact the pro-
gram of the House. Some of this legislation, in truth, had
its origin in the Senate, or it came to us from staff or
from the public, or even from a concerned lobbyist. In the
end, the important thing is not who originated the legisla-
tion but who has the ability to mold it into a wise bill and
to pass it into law.

We are well prepared to move promptly on the issues
before us. For example, we have had the drafts of the Cor-
porate Profits Tax bill since November third, and anyone
who wanted to, of course, reviewed the legislation well be-
fore then in its draft form. There is almost universal agree-
ment that the basic Corporate Profits Tax bill drafted by
Special Tax Counsel, Mr. Arthur England, is an excellent
piece of legislation. And may I say personally, it is accom-
panied by one of the most exceptional staff reports that I
have ever seen. Thanks to President Thomas, Senator de la
Parte, and Representative Turlington, the House and the
Senate have been working very closely in the development
of this legislation. The Senate and the House fiscal com-
mittees have held joint meetings to examine the Corporate
Tax bill and to take testimony. There have also been joint
committee meetings in the development of a new Article V.
In short, we have had the opportunity to become familiar



with the issues before us and to study much of the legisla-
tion that has already been prepared for this session. And



November 29, 1971









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



to move the business of the House at a reasonable pace.
The agenda is a heavy one, but there is no good reason to
postpone action. The agenda for the Regular Session, begin-
ning in February, is also very heavy, and any problems we
fail to deal with now will be back to haunt us during the
Regular Session. The more we can get done now, the
better off we will be in February.
We have a great deal to do in the next hours and the
next days if we are to finish within the ten day period pre-
scribed by the Governor's call. I don't want to see us go
into overtime any more than any of you do, and I do not
anticipate that we will do so. For that reason, I ask your
cooperation in keeping order and in listening to debate, as
we move through these very complex matters of tax re-
form, judicial reform, and other legislation. Let me outline
what we have in mind for the rest of today and tomorrow
at least. After we adjourn for lunch, the Finance & Taxa-
tion Committee will meet for final consideration and voting
on the Corporate Income Tax implementing bills and the tax
repeal bills. I hope we will be able to take up all or some
of them tomorrow morning when we convene at 10:00 a.m.
The Education Committee will also meet today, as will
the Judiciary Committee and the Appropriations Commit-
tee, each to consider matters pending before them. I hope
each of you will attend those meetings, if you are not com-
mittee members, so that you will be fully familiar with the
legislation when it comes to the Calendar.
In closing let me say that I hope the House will heed
the voice of the voters and will retain the integrity of the
Corporate Profits Tax bill. The press has paid particular
attention to the actions of lobbyists here in the last week,
and I think all of us will have sufficient opportunity to get
on the record about how we stand on the issues of tax
reform. It is only fair to note that those who will be paying
the Corporate Profits Tax have been well represented before
our committees. We should be especially certain that the
great majority of voters who are not so organized are well
represented by us. As I see it, we are like the long distance
runner in the final stretch of his race. This ten day session
is where quality counts. We can finish this long run for
tax reform with a final burst of stamina and win it, or we
can slow down in this final lap and fail to finish. I have
"been extremely proud of this House of Representatives. I
know nothing will occur in this session to dim that image.
Thank you very much.

Mr. Dubbin moved that the House adjourn upon completion of
Introduction and Reference to reconvene at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow,
which was agreed to.

Opinions of the Committee on House
Administration & Conduct

OPINION NO. 21

RELATING TO USE OF LEGISLATIVE STATIONERY FOR
FUND RAISING PURPOSES
The question presented to the Committee on House Administra-
tion & Conduct by a Member of the House of Representatives
is whether a House Member can use official House stationery,
or a reproduction thereof, to solicit financial contributions on
behalf of a private lobbying organization.

No direct precedent exists on this point. However, well settled
principles of legislative conduct coupled with relevant statutory
guidance require this Committee to conclude that a Member
may not solicit contributions in such a manner. House Rule 5.6
explicitly outlines the standard of legislative conduct required
of House Members:
5.6 Legislative Conduct-Legislative office is a trust to
be performed with integrity in the public interest. A
Member of the House of Representatives is jealous
of the confidence placed in him by the people. By per-
sonal example and by admonition to colleagues whose
behavior may threaten the honor of the law-making
body, he shall watchfully guard the responsibility of
his office.
It is clear that the action of a legislator must at all times be
beyond reproach. He must represent his entire constituency to
the best of his ability on all issues. By explicitly lending the
prestige and influence of his office to raise funds for a private
lobbying organization through the use of the official House
letterhead, a legislator puts in question his objectivity on issues
of interest to the particular lobby and casts doubt on his desire
to weigh the relative merits of such proposals. Such action
clearly impugns the integrity of the legislative office and
jeopardizes the trust placed in him by the public.
Further guidance can be gleaned from Chapter 104.31 of the
Elections Code which provides that a state officer cannot
directly or indirectly coerce, command or advise any other state
officer or state employee to contribute any sum of money to any
organization for political purposes. The clear purpose of this
section is to prohibit a legislator or other state officer from
using the influence of his office to raise political funds that
might riot otherwise be forthcoming. Although this section is
primarily keyed into election situations and the acts of state
officers and employees, its clear purpose might reasonably be
extended to limit the actions of a legislator in using his office to
raise funds for organized lobbying efforts. In such a case, he
would directly be advising other state officers as well as any
state employees receiving the solicitation to contribute to the
lobby organization. Moreover, the subtleties of possible direct
and indirect coercion or intimidation inherent in such a plea
further require us to conclude that House Members should not
engage in such solicitation.
Since official House stationery is impressed with the state
seal and because reproduction of such stationery is also at issue
in the question at hand, one further statute should be noted.
Chapter 817.38 prohibits any person from sending any letter
(for the purpose of obtaining any money) which simulates the
state seal or the stationery of any state agency with the intent
to lead the recipient to believe it is genuine. The term "simu-
late" is generally defined as copying, representing, feigning,
or giving the effect or appearance of something else. Clearly
within the scope of this definition is reproduction, and we
would therefore conclude that under existing law, it would be
unlawful to use reproduced House stationery impressed with
the state seal in order to solicit funds for any purpose.



It should be pointed out that Congress and a number of other
state legislatures have permitted the use of official stationery



to promote private lobbying activities. Because of this, and
because of the absence prior to this date of a clear policy to
the contrary in Florida, it is unfair to criticize or condemn
those who, prior to the adoption of this ruling, permitted their
official stationery to be used in such a fashion. However, the
use of official stationery on behalf of organizations or persons
whose intent is to lobby the legislature is demeaning to the
legislative process and creative of an atmosphere of mistrust
and suspicion about the ethics and conduct of legislators
generally.
In sum, it is the opinion of the Committee on House Adminis-
tration & Conduct that a House Member cannot use official
House stationery, or a reproduction thereof, to solicit financial
contributions on behalf of a private lobbying organization.

OPINION NO. 22

RELATING TO REPRESENTATIVE DONALD L. TUCKER
On June 3, 1971, a newspaper article appeared in the Miami
Herald, containing allegations of possible misconduct on the
part of Representative Donald L. Tucker, Democrat from Leon
County. The news story inferred that during the 1971 Legisla-
tive Session, Representative Tucker sought to amend Senate
Bill 156 so as to exclude regulation of a special interest in
which his brother allegedly held an interest. Senate Bill 156
prohibits the copying of sounds from any records, disk, tape,
etc., without the owner's consent and also makes it illegal to
sell or use these items for profit. The amendment to the bill,
which was supported by Representative Tucker, would have pro-
vided an exclusion, where the manufacturer of such sound re-
cordings has paid all copyright royalties due under the Federal
Copyright Statute. The newspaper article alleged that Repre-
sentative Tucker's brother, Luther C. "Kit" Tucker, Jr. either
represented or held an interest in a business enterprise whose
activities would have been made illegal under the terms of
Senate Bill 156, as originally introduced.
Shortly after the above newspaper article appeared, Representa-
tive Donald L. Tucker contacted the Chairman of the Committee
on House Administration & Conduct and requested that a pre-
liminary inquiry be conducted into facts which were the basis
for the article. A preliminary inquiry was undertaken by the
Committee's staff, and a related report, prepared by the staff
has been reviewed by this Committee.
After reviewing the report, it is the opinion of this Committee
that these facts do not sustain an allegation that Representa-
tive Donald L.'Tucker violated any rule of the Florida House of
Representatives or that he committed any act of misconduct in
regard to his involvement in attempting, during the 1971 Legis-
lative Session, to amend Senate Bill 156. The Committee did
not receive evidence that Representative Tucker had a financial
interest in any business enterprise which might have been af-
fected by the legislation, neither does the Committee find that
Representative Tucker had any common financial interests with
any individual or firm which might be affected by the legisla-
tion. Finally, there is no direct evidence that Representative
Tucker's efforts in attempting to amend Senate Bill 156 were
in any way an :attempt to assist his brother, Mr. Luther C.
"Kit" Tucker, Jr., or to otherwise further any interest, if any,
which his brother might have held in the sound recording
business.
In reaching the above conclusion, the Committee noted several
independent facts and circumstances, which when viewed in
connection with each other, gave rise to the allegations con-
tained in the newspaper article. The mere fact that the story
was published once again points out the necessity to avoid
situations which give the slightest appearance of the existence
of a conflict of interest. News reports such as the one here can
certainly cause embarrassment for the individual legislator, and
embarrassment for the legislative body as a whole.

Eternal God, Creator and Builder of the Universe, of
man and all his earthly habitation, we humbly beseech Thee
that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of
Thy favor and glad to do Thy will. Bless our land with
honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners.
Save us from violence, discord and confusion; from pride
and arrogancy, and from every evil way. Grant, 0 God, that
Christian people may come to undertake the work of local
government as a vocation and ministry; that they may
bring to their work minds that think, and hearts that feel;
that through compassion they will inspire to govern us in
the light of His divine will. Being governed by His com-
mand, hold us in Your hands, till Jesus comes. Amen.

Amendment 6-On page 17, after line 27, insert the following:

(d) Installment sales.

(i) Unless there has been an election under subparagraph
(ii), any taxpayer which returns any portion of its income for
federal income tax purposes under section 453 of the Internal
Revenue Code (whether or not as a dealer) shall file its
return under this Code, and shall compute its adjusted taxable
income (including income derived from transactions treated for
federal tax purposes as installment sales) in accordance with
the regular method by which the taxpayer accounts under sec-
tion 446(c) of the Internal Revenue Code for transactions which
are not installment sales. In preparing its return under this
Code, the taxpayer shall adjust taxable income (as defined in
subsection (2)) by excluding therefrom all installment sale in-
come reported in the taxable year with respect to income real-
ized from installment sales prior to January 1, 1972 and by
including therein the full amount of all income realized from
installment sales under an accrual method of accounting on or
after said date; provided, however, that for a taxable year
which begins before and ends after January 1, 1972, the ratio



November 30, 1971








JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



set forth in subsection 220.12(2) shall not be applied to the
taxpayers' apportioned share of installment sale income in com-
puting net income.
(ii) Any taxpayer which has elected for federal income tax
purposes to report any portion of its income on the installment
basis under section 453 of Internal Revenue Code may elect to
so return income from installment sales for purposes of this
Code; provided, however, that the election provided by the sub-
paragraph (ii) shall only be allowed if:
a. said election is made not later than the due date (includ-
ing any extensions thereof) for filing said taxpayer's return
under this Code, in such manner as the department may pre-
scribe; and
b. the taxpayer consents in writing, at the time of its elec-
tion, to the filing of its return without the adjustments to tax-
able income which are described in subparagraph (i).
(iii) If the taxpayer is a dealer or otherwise returns a por-
tion of its income under section 453 of the Internal Revenue
Code, an election under subparagraph (ii) must be made for
the taxpayer's first taxable year under this Code in which a
portion of its income is so returned for federal tax purposes,
and said election shall apply to all subsequent taxable years
for which installment sale treatment is elected for federal in-
come tax purposes, unless the department consents in writing
to the revocation of such election prior to the first taxable
year for which such revocation would apply.
(iv) If any taxpayer which elects under subparagraph (ii)
returns income under subsection 453(b) of the Internal Revenue
Code, then notwithstanding sub-subparagraphs 220.13(1) (b) (i)
a. and b. said taxpayer shall take into account in computing its
taxable income, in such manner as the department may by regu-
lation provide, net operating losses carried forward from tax-
able years ending prior to January 1, 1972.

Representative Crabtree was recorded as voting Yea and
Representative Miers was recorded as voting Nay.

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

Explanations of vote on CS for HB 16-D

In the first place, the people ratified a constitutional amend-
ment only authorizing the Legislature to levy a tax on corpo-
rate income at the maximum rate of 5% tax and the minimum
exemption of $5,000. The Governor and other individuals in
high office estimated the corporate income tax would generate
$100,000,000 in state revenue. Therefore, I voted no for the
following reasons:
1. The Governor nor the legislative leadership have so far
specifically listed what the $100,000,000 would be spent for.
2. Florida based corporations that already pay heavy prop-
erty taxes and heavy personal property taxes are to be taxed
at the same rate as the big multi-state corporations.
3. Some corporations will be exempted from the Florida tax
due to the method of electing to pay federal tax.
4. The low exemption is not fair to most Florida based
corporations because of the high ratio of other taxes they pay
which are not being paid by the large multi-state corporations.
5. It is my considered opinion and my conviction that this
bill is not fair tax reform.
Representative Henton D. Elmore

I would have voted yes on the corporate income tax if the
10,000 or 25,000 exemption had passed which was offered as
amendments to the implementing legislation.
Representative James A. Glisson

Mr. Dubbin moved that the House adjourn upon completion
of Introduction and Reference to reconvene at 10:00 a.m.
tomorrow, which was agreed to.



On motion by Mr. Turlington, the rules were waived and
CS for HB 16-D, as amended, was read the third time by title.

Pending roll call, the absence of a quorum was suggested.
A quorum of 107 Members was present.
On passage of CS for HB 16-D, the vote was:

Prayer

Prayer by Representative James Lorenzo Walker:
Our heavenly Father, we find in Your Holy Word these
sayings by Your son Jesus, our Savior, in His Sermon on
the Mount: Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the
kingdom of Heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they
shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall
inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and
thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled. Blessed
are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are
the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the
peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Father help us this day to be poor in spirit, to the point
that we will mourn for Your comforting, and make us
meek so as to hunger and thirst after righteousness, that
Your mercy will grant unto us a pure heart that as individ-
uals we will be peacemakers between we and our neighbors
be they next door, next block, next town, next state, next
country, or next continent, that we shall be called the child-
ren of God. Amen.

Under Rule 5.10, I wish to disclose that I represent as an
attorney, a small Florida corporation dealing in land sales,

from the Floor.

December 1, 1971

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Florida Statutes, as amended by chapter 71-360, Laws of
Florida, is amended to read:
212.05 Sales, storage, use tax.-It is hereby declared to be
the legislative intent that every person is exercising a taxable
privilege who engages in the business of selling tangible per-
sonal property at retail in this state, or who rents or furnishes
any of the things or services taxable under this chapter, or who
stores for use or consumption in this state any item or article
of tangible personal property as defined herein and who leases
or rents such property within the state. For the exercise of said
privilege a tax is levied on each taxable transaction or incident
and shall be due and payable, according to the brackets set
forth in section 212.12(10) as follows:
(5) At the rate of four percent on charges for all telegraph
messages and long distance telephone calls, beginning and ter-
minating in this state, and recurring charges to regular sub-
scribers for local telephone service, and for wied televiienn
service and all charges for the installation of telephonic? wired
television and telegraphic equipment and at the same rate on
all charges for electrical power or energy. Telephone and tele-
graph services originating within this state and completed out-
side this state or originating outside this state and completed
within this state are not taxable. The provisions of subsections
212.17(3) and (8), regarding credit for tax paid on charges
subsequently found to be worthless shall be equally applicable
to any tax paid under the provisions of this section on charges
for telephone and telegraph services and electric power sub-
sequently found to be uncollectible. The word "charges" in this
subsection shall not include any excise or similar tax levied by
the federal government, any political subdivision of the state,
or any municipality upon the purchase or sale of telephone, wi*ed
television or telegraph service or electric power, which tax is
collected by the seller from the purchaser.
Section 3. This act shall take effect July 1, 1972.
Mr. Powell moved the adoption of the amendment. Pending
consideration thereof-

Mr. Gautier raised the point of order that Mr. Powell's
amendment was outside the purview of the Governor's call,
even though germane to the pending bill, and its content could
be treated only in a separate bill subject to introduction with
the consent of two-thirds of the membership. The Speaker ruled
the point well taken.

Mr. Powell moved the amendment be admitted for considera-
tion, notwithstanding the Governor's call. The Speaker ruled
any proposal to amend the bill and bring in material outside
the call would require reintroduction of the bill. An amendment,
continued the Speaker, could not be introduced outside the call
by a two-thirds vote.

Representative Hess offered the following amendment:
Amendment 2-On page 1, line 28, strike "to residential
households"
Mr. Hess moved the adoption of the amendment. Pending
consideration thereof-

Under the prior ruling, the amendment was ruled out of
order.

Representative MacKay offered the following amendment:
Amendment 3-On page 1, line 28, after the word "house-
holds" insert the following: including facilities rented as
principal places of residence,
Mr. MacKay moved the adoption of the amendment. Pending
consideration thereof-

Representative Reeves offered the following amendment to
the amendment:
Amendment 1 to Amendment 3-After "residence" insert the
following: pursuant to a lease, written or oral, for a period of
one month or more.
Mr. Reeves moved the adoption of the amendment to the
amendment.



Without objection, the amendment to Amendment 3 was
withdrawn.



December 1, 1971



Mr. MacKay withdrew his amendment with the explanation
that he believed it was the intention of the Legislature that the
administrative regulations be drafted in such a way that eld-
erly people who are renting on a year-round basis and students
who are renting on a full-time student year basis be included
in the exemption for residential householders. The Speaker
directed that the Journal reflect the explanation by Mr. MacKay
and reiterated Mr. MacKay's intent not to prejudice the inter-
pretation of the legislation by any court with the withdrawal
of the amendment.

On motion by Mr. Ogden, the rules were waived and HB
33-D was read the third time by title. On passage, the vote
was:

Representatives Harris, Miers, Poole, Randell, Singleton, and

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

HB 32-D-A bill to be entitled An act relating to game and
fresh water fish; amending section 372.57(4) (a), Florida Stat-
utes, as amended by chapter 70-26, Laws of Florida, exempt-
ing certain state residents from obtaining fishing licenses when
fishing with poles for noncommercial purposes; providing an
effective date,
-was taken up, pending a motion to waive the rules for
second reading.

Mr. Craig moved the rules be waived and the House revert
to the Order of Business of Motions Relating to Committee
Reference. The Speaker said the House now Was on the Special
Order Calendar, with the bill in question, HB 32-D, pending on
that Calendar, and the motion to revert therefore would require
a two-thirds vote for agreement.

Pending consideration, Mr. Tillman raised the point of order
that the bill should be referred to the Committee on Appropria-
tions. The Speaker, after consultation, held that in an abundance
of caution, although the bill carries a July 1 effective date and
no current appropriation is involved, the bill does affect a
continuing trust fund appropriation which would remain unaf-
fected unless changed by the Legislature. Hence, because of
this direct relationship to the legislative overview duty, the
Chair felt the point was well taken. The bill was, therefore,
placed in the Committee on Appropriations.

On behalf of Mr. Craig, as Chairman of the Committee on
Natural Resources, Dr. Earle claimed jurisdiction of HB 32-D
under Rule 8.8 for the Committee on Natural Recources. The
Speaker, after further consultation, ruled as follows:









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



"It is the opinion of the Chair that the rule raised by Mr.
Earle is inappropriate at this time but it would be appropriate
during consideration of the order of business of Motions Relat-
ing to Committee Reference. We are on the Special Order
Calendar and I do not think the rule permits us to interrupt
that Special Order to take up a claim of jurisdiction, which
properly should be made during the order of business of Motions
Relating to Committee Reference. I have agreed with Mr. Craig
and others and Mr. Earle that, upon completion of the Special
Order Calendar today, we will go ahead, prior to the meet-
ing of the Appropriations Committee, revert to that order of
business, take up this issue and dispose of it, since otherwise
we are going to have an Appropriations Committee meeting,
come back in and have it disposed of at that time."

HB 29-D-A bill to be entitled An act relating to insurance
and claims against insolvent insurers; setting forth a purpose
and scope; providing definitions; requiring certain insurers to
establish and be members of the Florida Property and Casualty
Insurance Guaranty Association; providing duties, functions,
obligations, and rights of the association; providing four guar-
anty accounts; providing for assessments of member insurers;
providing a governing committee; providing the membership,
powers, duties, and functions of the governing committee; pro-
viding duties of the department of insurance relating to the
association; providing for payment of certain claims; barring
the payment of claims previously paid; providing a method to
prevent insolvencies of insurers; providing immunity from cer-
tain suits; providing a time limitation for the filing of suits
against the association; amending section 627.0851(4), Florida
Statutes, providing a method for payment of claims against
insolvent insurers arising under the uninsured motorists statute;
providing a severability clause; and providing an effective date
for the expiration of this act.
-was taken up. On motion by Mr. MacKay, the rules were
waived and HB 29-D was read the second time by title.

Representative Forbes offered the following amendment:
Amendment 1-On page 11, strike all of line 20, and insert
the following: forms of proof of covered claims, provided, how-
ever, that any uninsured motorist shall have the option of pro-
ceeding against the guaranty fund or against his own unin-
sured motorist fund. Notice of

Mr. Forbes moved the adoption of the amendment. Pending
consideration thereof-

Mr. MacKay raised the point of order that the amendment
was not within the purview of the Governor's Call. He said
the Call limited consideration to the remedying of Constitutional
defects as determined by Circuit Judge Hugh Taylor. The
amendment by Mr. Forbes, continued Mr. MacKay, would add
substantive material.

The Speaker held the point well taken, stating his reading
of the Governor's Proclamation spoke of the correction of
alleged Constitutional defects of Chapter 70-20, the Florida
Insurance Guaranty Association Act. The Speaker said it was
his understanding that as drafted and presented to the House
the pending bill attempted to respond specifically to the de-
fects pointed out in Judge Taylor's opinion. He agreed the Call
was very limited in its scope but felt the House would be in-
viting additional Constitutional challenges by adding on some-
thing outside the purview of the Call.

Mr. Forbes withdrew his amendment.

Representative Powell offered the following amendment:
Amendment 2-On page 6, line 26, strike the period and in-
sert the following: in accordance with and not exceeding the
provisions of Chapter 112.061, Florida Statutes.
Mr. Powell moved the adoption of the amendment.

Mr. Gillespie raised the same point of order against the
amendment by Mr. Powell as being outside the Call. The
Speaker ruled the point well taken, expressing the hope the
Committee on House Administration & Conduct, in its pending



consideration of a proposed revision of Article III, would ad-
dress itself to the constraints placed upon the Legislature by
the present language relating to consideration of legislation
under a call by the Governor.



On motion by Mr. MacKay, the rules were waived and HB
29-D was read the third time by title. On passage, the vote
was:

Reconsideration

Mr. Forbes moved to reconsider the vote by which HB 32-D
was referred to the Committee on Natural Resources. Mr.
Fulford raised the point of order, under Rule 8.8, that, the
bill having been taken into the possession of the Committee
on Natural Resources, the pending action was in effect a motion
to withdraw the bill from committee and required a two-thirds
vote.

The Speaker held Rule 8.8, where the House has taken action
by majority vote, did not preclude the right set forth in Rule
10.6 for the same majority to reconsider any question. This,
the Speaker continued, "is an important right vested in the
majority of the House at any time, and I see no other basis
in Rule 8.8 to deprive the majority of the House of the power
to reconsider."

Mr. Fulford raised the further point of order that since the
Rules of the Florida House did not speak directly to this
question, the Rules of the U.S. House of Representatives were
applicable under Florida House Rule 15.1. Mr. Fulford read
from Section 820 of the Rules of the U.S. House which, in
material part, stated no bill once referred to a committee shall
be brought back into the House on a motion to reconsider.
The Speaker said: "The Chair respectfully disagrees. It feels
that Rule 10.6 is in point directly and confers upon the majority
of the House as a matter of right the power to reconsider any
main question it has voted upon that day or on the succeed-
ing day. The Chair so rules."

Prayer

Prayer by Representative Julian B. Lane:
Our Father, bless we pray Thee, the leaders of this
state. Strengthen the courage of the Representatives as-
sembled here-sincere men who want to do the right, if
only we can be sure what is right. Make it plain to us,
oh Lord, and then wilt Thou start us out on the right way,
for Thou knowest that we are hard to turn. Forgive us for
the blunders we may commit, the compromises we have
made. Give us the courage to admit mistakes. Take away
from us as individuals that stubborn pride, which, followed
by conceit, imagines itself to be above and beyond criticism.
Save our leaders, oh God, from themselves and from their
friends. Let no personal ambition blind us to our oppor-
tunities. Give us divine common sense and a selflessness
that shall make us think of service and not gain. Give us
the courage to lead the people of Florida, considering un-
worthy the expediency of following the people. We ask this
in His name. Amen.

locutory order passing upon a matter which upon final judgment

Communication from the Governor

The following communication was read:

Honorable Richard Pettigrew
Speaker, House of Representatives
The Capitol
Tallahassee, Florida



December 3, 1971



Dear Mr. Speaker:
It has come to my attention that a question has been raised
concerning the interpretation of Subsection 2 (m) of the Proc-
lamation dated November 24, 1971, as amended. The purpose of
this letter is to clarify my intention with regard to that sub-
section.
By the use of the word "repeal" in that subsection, I did not
intend to exclude from the call of the Special Session, legislation
relating to the amendment of the Florida law relating to the
ad valorem tax exemption of property leased from government-
al units by non-governmental lessees. It is my request, therefore,
that subsection 2 (m) be interpreted as if it read: "legisla-
tion relating to (m) Repeal or amendment of ad valorem
tax exemption of property leased from governmental units by
non-governmental lessees."

Sincerely,
REUBIN ASKEW
Governor

Prayer
Prayer by Representative Robert M. Johnson:
Our Father, God, this is the beginning of a new legis-
lative day. We can waste it, or use it for good. We can do
today what is important, because we are exchanging this,
day for a day in our lives. When tomorrow comes, this
day will be gone forever, leaving in its place that which
we have traded for it. Let it be gain and not loss, good
and not evil, success and not failure, in order that not one
of us shall regret the price we paid for today. Amen.

Pledge
The Members pledged allegiance to the Flag.

ceeding when the jurisdiction of another court has been im-
providently invoked; and providing that no cause shall be dis-
missed because an improper remedy has been sought. These
rules may be changed by general law limited to the sole pur-
pose of revising said rules, enacted by two-thirds vote of the
membership of each house of the legislature.

by a majority of the members of the court. He shall be the

senting retired justices or judges, to temporary duty in any
court for which the judge is otherwise qualified.

chosen by a majority of the judges thereof or, if there is no
majority, by the chief justice. The chief judge shall be respon-
sible for the administrative supervision of the court.
(d) A chief judge in each circuit shall be chosen from
among the circuit judges as provided by supreme court rule.

officers, that passes upon a question certified by a district
court of appeal to be of great public interest, or that is in
direct conflict with a decision of any district court of appeal
or of the supreme court on the same question of law, and any
interlocutory order passing upon a matter which upon final
judgment would be directly appealable to the supreme court,
and any order of a commission established by general law
exercising state-wide jurisdiction; and may issue writs of pro-
hibition to courts and commissions in causes within the juris-
diction of the supreme court to review, and all writs necessary
to the complete exercise of its jurisdiction.
(4) May issue writs of mandamus and quo warrant to
state officers and state agencies;
(5) The supreme court or any justice may issue writs of

Explanation of Vote
I wish to explain my opposition to the constitutional amend-
ment to Article V of the Florida Constitution.
The numerous letters, telegrams and phone calls that have
been received by me indicate that those courts that are closest
to the people serve the best interests of these communities.
The Palm Beach Civic Association, by their resolution adopt-
ed on November 30, 1971, clearly expressed the sentiment of the
communities in Palm Beach County wherein they expressed
their opinion by stating that "county" courts will result in
sharply increased costs and inconvenience to the people of
Palm Beach. "The experience of the City of Miami in the
Metro Court, reveals that some 15% of said city's on-duty
police hours are spent waiting to testify in said Metro Court."
The present local court system administers justice adequately
and serves a most useful purpose. The establishment of state-
wide minimum standards for the municipal court system is
preferred to the abolition of these courts.
For these and other reasons not herein expressed I was com-
pelled to vote against this proposition.

The following communication was read:



Honorable Richard Pettigrew
Speaker, House of Representatives
The Capitol
Tallahassee, Florida



December 6, 1971



Dear Mr. Speaker:
It has come to my attention that a question has been raised
concerning the interpretation of Subsection 2(d) of the Procla-
mation dated November 24, 1971, as amended. The purpose of
this letter is to clarify my intention with regard to that sub-
section.
By the use of the word "repeal" in that subsection, I did not
intend to exclude from the call of the Special Session, legisla-
tion relating to the amendment of the Florida law relating to
the dealer's credit for collecting sales tax. It is my request,
therefore, that subsection 2(d) be interpreted as if it read:
"legislation relating to (d) Repeal or amendment of the
dealer's credit for collecting sales tax."
Sincerely,
REUBIN ASKEW

Prayer by the Reverend G. J. Blair, First United Methodist
Church, Perry, Florida:
0 God who governs the world in righteousness, and whose
judgements are true and righteous. Grant that tho-e who
rule over us and who legislate for us may be of one mind
to establish justice and promote the welfare of all people.
Endow all members of the house with a right understand-
ing, pure purposes, sound reason and speech. Enable them
to rise above all self seeking and party zeal to the nobler
concerns of public good and human brotherhood. Cleanse
our public life of all evil, subdue our state and nation in all
that is harmful; and make us a disciplined and devoted peo-
ple that we may do Thy will on earth as it is done in
Heaven. Hear our prayer, 0 God. Amen.

At the request of Representative Moudry, the House observed

utes, as amended by chapter 70-26, Laws of Florida, exempt-
ing certain state residents from obtaining fishing licenses when

Representative Elmore offered the following amendment:
Amendment 1-On page 2, strike all of lines 1 through 6 and
insert the following:
No license shall be required for residents of the state for
noncommercial purposes in the county of his residence
Mr. Elmore moved the adoption of the amendment. Pending
consideration thereof-

Mr. Chapman raised the point of order that the Governor's
Call prohibited the House from considering anything other than
repeal of the cane pole fishing license. The Speaker ruled he
felt the Governor had by implication redefined his use of
"repeal" by two subsequent communications on other items in
which the Governor stated he did not mean to exclude amend-
ment.

The question recurred on the adoption of Amendment 1.
Pending consideration thereof-

Representative Tucker offered the following substitute amend-
ment:
Substitute Amendment 1-On page 2, line 3, strike "with not
more than three poles or lines"
Mr. Tucker moved the adoption of the substitute amendment.

Pending consideration thereof, Mr. Harllee moved the pre-

Representative Renick was recorded as voting Nay.

Subsequently, Mr. Chapman moved that the House reconsider
the vote by which Amendment 3 was adopted.

Mr. Tucker called a point of order that Mr. Chapman did
not vote on the prevailing side and therefore was ineligible
to make the motion for reconsideration. Mr. Tucker raised
a further point of order that the bill, as amended, alters appro-
priations and should be recommitted to the Committee on
Appropriations. The Speaker ruled the point of order on Mr.
Chapman's motion well taken and he responded to the second
point of order by stating that the bill had already been in the
Committee on Appropriations and, exercising the Chair's dis-
cretion under Rule 8.7, felt it would be inappropriate to return
it to the committee at this time.

Mr. Johnson moved that the House reconsider the vote by
which Amendment 3 was adopted. Mr. Sims moved that the
motion to reconsider be laid on the table, which was not agreed
to. The vote was:

be dismissed because an improper remedy has been sought.
These rules may be changed by general law enacted by the af-
firmative vote of two-thirds of the membership of each house of
the legislature.

court for which the judge is qualified and to delegate to a
chief judge of a judicial circuit the power to assign judges for
duty in his respective circuit.
(c) A chief judge for each district court of appeal shall be
chosen by a majority of the judges thereof or, if there is no
majority, by the chief justice. The chief judge shall be re-
sponsible for the administrative supervision of the court.

treaty, or construing a provision of the state or federal con-
stitution.

final judgments and orders of trial courts imposing life im-

appeal to be of great public interest, or that is in direct con-
flict with a decision of any district court of appeal or of the

Prayer



Prayer by Father Sean O'Sullivan, St. Thomas More Catholic
Church, Tallahassee:
Dear God, our Father, bless these men who are your
secular priests. They are the instruments of Your peace,
for bettering the lot of many Floridians who are caught
in the vicious cycle of poverty, bad living conditions and
drug abuse. Help them not to get discouraged in their
efforts to make good and just laws, so that this state of
ours may become a place where each and every person
may have an opportunity to grow to a person of full stature,
a person of dignity and usefulness, because it is in God's
image that we were created. At this time we remember
the words of the song, "no man is an island," and when-
ever one of our brothers suffers, so do we all. Because
we are all irrevocably bound up together in the common
brotherhood of man. We believe also that any chain is
only as strong as its weakest link. We cannot stand idly
by as the very texture of our society is weakened by
poverty, lack of opportunity, and even injustice. Some-
day, perhaps in the near future, we will be tested from
without or within, and any weakness then will lead to the
destruction of us all. Give us the courage then to become
involved in the great humanitarian struggle to save thou-
sands of young Americans, especially those involved in



drug abuse, that we may become instruments of Your
peace; "that where there is hatred, we may sow love;
where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness,
light; and where there is sadness, joy." 0 God, if there
is any kindness we can do this day for anyone, let us do
it now, because we shall not pass this way again. Amen.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



The Honorable Jerry Thomas December 8, 1971
President of the Senate
The Honorable Richard A. Pettigrew
Speaker, House of Representatives
Gentlemen:
Your Conference Committee on the disagreeing votes of the
two Houses on the Senate amendments to Committee Substi-
tute for House Bill 16-D, same being: A bill to be entitled An
act relating to taxation and finance; amending Title XIII,
Florida Statutes, to provide for the imposition, collection and
administration of an income tax on corporations and other arti-
ficial persons; amending subsection 323.15(6), Florida Statutes,
to remove the income tax exemption of motor carriers; amend-
ing sections 624.0307 and 624.0308, Florida Statutes, to provide
a credit for insurers against insurance premium taxes for an
"amount of income taxes paid; providing an appropriation and
procedures for competitive bidding; providing an effective date.
having met; and after full and free conference, have agreed to
recommend and do recommend to their respective Houses, as
follows:
1. That the House adopt the following Senate amendments
to Committee Substitute for House Bill 16-D:
(a) Number 1 (eliminating all gross receipts tax credits);
(b) Number 8 (eliminating the addition to taxable in-
come of gross receipts tax payments deducted for
federal income tax purposes);
(c) Number 28 (eliminating a December 31, 1971 cut-off
for computing capital gains and losses);
(d) Number 11 (deleting from the bill an appropriation
to the department of revenue);
(e) Number 19 (authorizing regional deposits of tax
payments);
(f) Numbers 5, 6, 7, 9, 12, 13 and 14 (making technical
and conforming amendments to the bill);
(g) Numbers 10 and 32 (deleting provisions left in the
House bill which related to the taxation of banks);
provided, however, that the conferees on the part of
both Houses, in the light of additional facts, recog-
nize that the present federally-provided exemptions
from and restrictions on state taxation of banks and
similar financial institutions provide these institu-
tions an effective tax rate which is not equitable in
comparison with other businesses, and the conferes
recommend to both Houses that they review the
extent to which banks are in fact taxed on their
net incomes under C/S for HB 16-D and take such
further action as is appropriate to provide tax treat-
ment to that segment of the business community
which is equitable in relation to other businesses.
2. That the House and Senate adopt the following Senate
amendments to Committee Substitute for House Bill 16-D,
as further amended by the Conference Committee:
(a) Number 20 (adopting a mandatory apportionment
