SPECIAL SESSION



Tuesday, April 11, 1972


Beginning of a Special Session of the Second Legislature under the Constitution as Revised in 1968, convened
by Proclamation of the Governor and held at the Capitol in Tallahassee, Florida, on Tuesday, April 11, 1972.

The House was called to order at 10:00 a.m. by The Honorable tion of the revision of Article V of the Florida Constitution
Richard A. Pettigrew, Speaker, pursuant to the following Proc- which relates to the determination of the number and compensa-
lamation of the Governor, which was read: tion of both circuit and county judges.



PROCLAMATION

State of Florida
Office of the Governor
Tallahassee

TO THE HONORABLE MEMBERS OF THE FLORIDA
SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES:
WHEREAS, the Second Legislature of the State of Florida
under the Constitution, 1968 Revision, convened in Regular
Session for the year 1972 on February 1, 1972, and adjourned
on April 7, 1972, and
WHEREAS, by Proclamation dated April 8, 1972, the Legis-
lature was convened in Special Session on April 8, 1972, for
the purpose of considering legislation relating to the implemen-
tation of the revision of Article V of the Florida Constitution,
and
WHEREAS, during the Regular Session, the extension there-
of, and the aforesaid Special Session, the Legislature has failed
to enact legislation relating to the determination of the number
and compensation of county judges, and
WHEREAS, Section 2 of the revised Article V provides that
judges may be assigned to temporary duty in any court for
which the judge is qualified, and
WHEREAS, this section would permit the temporary assign-
ment of circuit judges to perform the duties of county judges
and the temporary assignment of qualified county judges to
perform the duties of circuit judges, and
WHEREAS, because of the flexibility permitted by such
temporary assignment of trial court judges, the determination
of the number and compensation of county judges is inter-
related with the determination of the number and compensation
of circuit judges, and
WHEREAS, in view of the interrelationship of these offices,
it is necessary and desirable that the call of the Special Session
be sufficiently broad to permit the Legislature to consider
legislation relating to the determination and number of both
judicial offices;
NOW, THEREFORE, I, REUBIN O'D. ASKEW, Governor
of Florida, in obedience to my constitutional duty and by virtue
of the power and authority vested in me by Section 3, Article
III, Florida Constitution, 1968 Revision, do hereby proclaim
as follows:
1. That the Legislature of the State of Florida be, and it is
hereby convened in Special Session pursuant to Section 3(c),
Article III, Florida Constitution, at the Capitol, Tallahassee,
Florida at 10:00 o'clock a.m. on Tuesday, the 11th day of April,
1972, for a period of one (1) day.
2. That the Legislature is convened for the sole purpose of
considering legislation concerning that part of the implementa-

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have
hereunto set my hand and caused the
Great Seal of the State of Florida to

that shows itself by simplicity, and the true power that
shows itself by modesty. Teach us, 0 Lord, the disciplines

ask in Jesus' name. Amen.

Representatives Featherstone, Firestone, Holloway, Miers,
Redman, A. S. Robinson, Tucker, and Walker were recorded as
voting Yea.

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


Explanation of Vote on HB 1-F

It is my belief that the purpose of Article V was to promote
justice and tranquility within our system. The proposed salary
increase for judges in counties under 40,000 people, which I
have consistently opposed, will create chaos and dissention in
the small counties. To increase these judges to $24,000, an in-
crease of more than 100%, while our other people are receiving
from 5% to 10% seems to be the height of folly. Furthermore,
this increase will create considerable problems within the court-
houses since none of the other county officers are receiving
any increase.
Because of the foregoing reasons, I am compelled to vote
against HB 1-F.
Representative William J. Rish
