REMARKS BY THE HONORABLE MALLORY E.
HORNE, SPEAKER OF THE 1963 HOUSE OF
REPRESENTATIVES
This is both the proudest and yet the saddest moment
of my life. Proud in retrospect that I have been honored
over the years to walk arm in arm with many of you for
many sessions through all of the tumult of a diversity
of opinion in this business of molding our separate
philosophies into one common objective for the better-
ment of our State. Also proud that my good citizens of
Leon County have indulged me for so many years so
that you might give me this high honor. I don't assume
it lightly, and I hope when the gavel sounds sine die
at the end of this session that you will forgive those mis-
takes that I will make and recognize that, of that capacity
which I may have, I have given of the utmost to you. I
pledged to all of you before I ever assumed the designa-
tion, that I would try my best only to be a member's
speaker, and to that end I have dedicated the organiza-
tional aspect of the House and will dedicate the rulings
from this rostrum. To all of you of whatever philosophy
and of whatever objective whether in accord with my own
thinking or in direct opposition thereto, you will receive
the same attention from this Chair as if it were myself
on that floor.
It is also the saddest moment because as we greet
these new members there are many of us who have been
put in the position, willingly and with great honor, to
view this beginning of the 1963 Session also as the end



of a legislative career. We do this with great pride to all
of you new members with the hope and ambition that
as you assume our seats that you will recognize the great



April 2, 1963



dignity of the Florida House of Representatives and that
you will realize that yours is a responsibility that always
isn't the most pleasant. Unfortunately we always hear
from those who are in disagreement and seldom from those
who agree with the actions you take.
One moment to welcome all of the new Members to
the House. Whatever you have heard in the past about
the disparity existing here and the chasms, geographical,
that might have been in some subjects, I want to assure
you, in welcoming you to a warm fraternity, that no
matter how bitter the opposition might have been or
might be during this session that you will find the
cherished relationship here with your colleagues and in
this diversity of opinion you can respect the convictions
in that disagreement. This is truly to be a tumultuous
session. Those of you who have not had the opportunity
to spend a great deal of time in preparation for it, I
offer, as do all of the other senior members of the House,
our unrelenting support and assistance in the develop-
ment of your program.
We are told that Florida stands at the threshold of deci-
sion. You must make momentous decisions in both identify-
ing the needs of this State and in fulfilling them. Both are
tremendous undertakings. You will meet with the inclina-
tion to vote for all things in the matter of appropriations
and against all matters pertaining to the raising of taxes.
This is the politically astute thing to do, and Florida needs
now not the politically astute. If you are inclined to vote
and recognize the real and true needs of this State, then
I challenge you to be willing to give to them also a general
revenue fund that will support those appropriations. We
are told in so many areas that our tremendous growth has
placed on your shoulders the responsibility of changing
philosophy, of identifying and charting a course not only
for this biennium as we have done in the past, but for the
future. This is a tremendous undertaking again for you.
From this rostrum I will assist you in every way possible
without ever appearing to be dictatorial in doing so, and in
that vein I offer to you not only this rostrum but the Office
of the Speaker in assisting you in every way possible to
make your decision easier.
As I view this House Chamber this morning, to those
of you who have only been in the Legislature for two or
three years, I want to remind you that you are astride a
modern vehicle equipped to help you do the impossible task
assigned to you.
For those of you who have not been lucky enough to be
in the Council of State Governments, let me remind you
that you will handle more bills, twice the number of bills,
in half the time as the busiest other Legislature in the
whole nation. To do that the whole approach has been
changed.
It is difficult for me to look back a few years in the past,
as I see John Crews and some of these others, and realize
that they labored without benefit of even the bills that
were being presented before them. All they had were the
titles in the Journal. Just a few years back all the dicta-
tion and all of the conferences with the constituency
occurred right on this floor in the midst of debate and
pandemonium was the result, and now this modern equip-
age is at your finger tips ready only for the personal
substantive response that you give it and the integrity of
your office.
Also, I think one of the greatest challenges presented
to us today is to recognize that probably you here this
session and those that follow you, and very few there-



after, will decide whether or not the concept of state and
local government is to survive. As a lawyer during the
last decade or so, I have studied and reached the decision
that while we loudly proclaim to the world that this is
a delicate balance of power between the federal, the state



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES











JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



and the local that there is now not a single function of
state government to which you can lay exclusive claim.
This is backed by innumerable decisions of the Supreme
Court of the United States, and part of this must be shoul-
dered by us ourselves. We have relinquished the right,
because we insisted upon dodging the responsibility. If
we continue to be such great politicians that we dodge
responsibility, then we should not be heard to disparage
the fact that we are exercising functions of government
at the pure will and whim of another body. If this occurs,
then I am sure that more bitter tears will be shed over the
fall of such a constitutional concept than were ever shed
over the fall of the Parthenon, and I will join with you
in placing our shoulder firmly to that responsibility. I
dedicate the next sixty days or however many it might
take to the assistance to you so that when we do sine die
we can all share a great deal of pride and only hope
that that message is carried and received in the same
fashion by the constituency of our great State.
Thank you so very much.
Mr. Griffin of Polk moved that the foregoing remarks
by the Speaker be spread upon the pages of the journal.
The motion was agreed to and it was so ordered.
MR. CHAPPELL IN THE CHAIR
The Chair announced he would now receive nominations

tives.

the Honorable Richard W. Ervin, Attorney General; the
Honorable Ray E. Green, Comptroller; the Honorable
J. Edwin Larson, Treasurer; the Honorable Thomas D.
Bailey, Superintendent of Public Instruction; and the
Honorable Doyle E. Conner, Commissioner of Agriculture,
constituting the Cabinet of the State of Florida, together
with Chief Justice B. K. Roberts, Justice Glenn Terrell,
Justice Elwyn Thomas, Justice E. Harris Drew, Justice
Campbell Thornal, Justice Stephen C. O'Connell, and
Justice Millard Caldwell, constituting the Supreme Court
of Florida, who were thereupon awarded seats of honor.
Senator McCarty of the 12th District moved that a
committee be appointed to escort Mrs. Farris Bryant,
Florida's First Lady, to the rostrum.
The motion was agreed to.
Thereupon, the President appointed Senators McCarty
of the 12th, Stratton of the 16th, and Messrs. Chiles of
Polk, Boyd of Manatee, and Allsworth of Broward as the
committee which escorted Mrs. Bryant to the rostrum
where she was presented to the Joint Session.
Mr. O'Neill of Marion introduced Mrs. Daniel F.
Burnett, mother of Mrs. Bryant, together with Misses
Cecelia and Adair Bryant, daughters of Governor and
Mrs. Bryant.
The President of the Senate then presented His
Excellency, Governor Farris Bryant, who delivered the
following message:
GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE
Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Chief Justice, my fel-
low constitutional officers, members of the Legislature,
my fellow Floridians.
This is a sentimental moment for me. Ten years ago
almost to the day I was escorted down this same aisle
to this same rostrum to assume the very great responsi-
bility of the Speaker of the House. There is so much to
remind me now of then.
The same chief clerk is here now as then. I shall never
forget the assurance I drew throughout those legislative
sessions from the knowledge that whenever I wandered
among parliamentary shoals she was there to guide me
back.



We faced then, as now, a crisis in higher education.
Out of our willingness to face the facts as they were

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



pointed out by studies that were then made came the
solutions: the establishment of our junior colleges and of
two new universities at Tampa and Boca Raton.
The Milk Commission was in trouble then-as now.
And the problem of providing adequate salaries for teach-
ers then, as now, confronted us.
But if there are many things in this scene to remind
me of that day, there are many more which bring home
to me that this is a different Florida-indeed, this is a
different world.
I read again last Saturday with nostalgia the message
that Governor Dan McCarty sent to us from his bed in
the old white mansion that stood at the other end of
Adams Street. We were 3 million people then-we are
almost 6 million now.
We wooed and welcomed 4 million tourists then-13
million now.
Canaveral was there then-a sandy spot east of quiet
towns-a name and a place unknown to the world.
Planes flew, but no jets. It was five years later before
the first commercial jet flew from New York to Florida.
The door had not opened on the world in which we
now live.
We spent $350 million from all sources then in the year
ending June 1953. In the year which closes with this
June we will have spent $1,350,000,000.
However pleasant to look back and whatever the ties
of memory, I know that this is not yesterday-this is yes-
terday's tomorrow.
FINANCIAL POSITION
Financially, our books are balanced. When the books
close June 30 we will have lived within our means. In
spite of the losses we have suffered by reason of the
Cuban crises and the blow to our governmental economy,
as well as our agricultural economy, through the freeze
of 1962, we will end this year with all operating expenses
paid and all capital outlay obligations met. In addition,
we have been able to build a $1 million facility at Florida
A & M University which was left over from the last bi-
ennium and an $800,000 facility at the Institution for the
Deaf and Blind. It is my hope that we will have several
million dollars unencumbered to begin the new year. It is
gratifying that income in those two years will vary not
more than 1% from the level we suggested in 1961.
APPROPRIATIONS
The Budget Commission has recommended a sound
budget to you. It envisions a continuation of the level of
service which you have established, with increases of
salaries for state personnel of 7% for the first year and
3% for the second year of the biennium. It provides an
adequate appropriation ($10 million) for the purchase
of textbooks, an additional $22 million arising from the
growth of the Minimum Foundation fund requirements,
an increase from $3 million to $10 million of the amount
provided for teacher competency awards, $21/2 million
for 163 additional highway patrolmen and supporting
personnel for the Highway Patrol, an additional one and
three-quarter million dollars for the expansion of our
educational television network and services; sums for the
operation of our new Sunland Training Centers and other
facilities already in operation or soon to be placed in
operation; and for an increase in the state appropriation
for grants to county health units of $1 million over the
last biennium.



Let me point out to you that of the $860 million recom-
mended by the Budget Commission to be appropriated
from the General Revenue Fund for operations, $528 mil-
lion is fixed by formula or other mandatory provision set



April 2, 1963



Since you met last in general session Cape Canaveral has
become the launching place of the free world. Scientific
discoveries that in another age would -have been separated
by 100 years now seem to come almost with every news-
paper. Advances in learning and knowledge that at one
time would have sparked an industrial revolution or a
period of renaissance now occur with such frequency that
their impact is hardly noted. We have compacted in this
last decade advances that are traumatic in their impact on



E OF REPRESENTATIVES 9

by the Legislature; and of the $109 million increase over
expenditures in the current biennium recommended by
the Budget Commission, $64 million is the result of those
same formulae or other mandatory provision. Our very
growth imposes certain inflexible demands.
HIGHER EDUCATION
By far the most critical need that we face in this com-
ing biennium is the need to make sufficient provision for
the higher education of the young people of Florida. In
no area have we done so badly. I take pride, as I know
you do, in the quality of our existing institutions, in the
growth and quality of our junior colleges, in the establish-
ment of new universities at Tampa and Boca Raton, and,
measured by the standards of 1953 when the plans for these
institutions and this growth were laid, it is a remarkable
achievement. But this is not 1953. Indeed, as we act to-
gether here I can say with complete accuracy that in the
dimension in which we now operate this is not 1963. There
is nothing we can do today in the field of higher education
that will help Florida in 1963. There is not much we can
do about 1964. The impact of our decisions may be dis-
cernible in 1965 but the broad shape-and I pray that it is
a broad shape-cannot possibly be seen before 1970. I dare
say that if I have the privilege of looking back to these
days from the eminence of 1973 I will see then still un-
finished many of the programs that we now begin.
Of every 100 young people in Florida between the ages
of 18 and 21 years, 31 are in college-but over the nation
as a whole from Florida to Alaska and from Hawaii to
Maine, 42 out of every 100 are in college, and in that state,
California, which has most nearly captured the spirit of
technological advances in this decade, 58 out of each 100
are in college.
Of every 100 young people 20 and 21 years of age, 15
of those who live in Florida are in junior and senior classes,
but 29 is the average for the nation, and 35 for California.
If we were closing the gap-if we were wearing 7-league
boots while the rest of the nation stumbled along-all of
this could be tolerated, because the time would be in sight
when we would approach the average and reach out for the
best. But the reverse is true in both categories that I have
mentioned. We fall farther and farther behind, and in an
age when knowledge and learning are the only indis-
pensable natural resources, we dissipate what we have.
It is not pleasant for me to recite these facts, but the
first requirement for the solution of a problem is to recog-
nize that it exists.
The expansion of our junior colleges under the Minimum
Foundation Program has been provided for in the budget
recommended by the Budget Commission. The participation
by the state under this program will increase from $12
million to $20 million. Such an increase is a fair measure
of the increasing significance of education at the college
level to our young people.
You will note, however, that the Budget Commission
recommendations do not include any money for capital
outlay, and it is my proposal that the capital outlay needs
which are set by junior college authorities at $58 million
be, to the extent determined proper by you, met from the
sources I shall suggest elsewhere to meet all higher educa-
tion capital outlay needs.











10 JOURNAL OF THE HOU

our social and economic structures, and surely if we have
learned anything, we know that the next 10 years will
bring changes even greater than those of the last.
So we must move ahead. I shall recommend to you
sources of revenue which will produce $125 million for the
biennium in excess of those now provided, and such a sum
will be adequate, if we are wise and exercise self-restraint,
to provide for necessary improvements in our system of
public schools, to provide for all our capital outlay require-
ments other than those for higher education, to provide for
an expanded program for medical assistance for the aged
and to provide at least $20 million biennially to fund obli-
gations of the Board of Education in the provision of $125
million capital outlay for a higher education program.
TAXATION
I recommend that for tax sources you broaden the sales
tax, at its present level of 3%, to virtually everything ex-
cept groceries and medicines. Such a tax applied to auto-
mobiles, industrial machinery, recreational activities, min-
erals, aviation fuels (now exempt from any tax), tangible
property repairs, and a few other minor areas, so that
virtually all of the loopholes and exemptions in the sales
tax, except groceries and medicines, will be closed, will
provide a great deal of that money. The municipalities of
Florida, hard pressed financially, have proposed an increase
of 30 per pack on cigarettes, and I have indicated my
support of this revenue for our cities. The tax on cigarettes
purchased outside of municipalities will be paid into the
General Revenue Fund and should produce for the state
biennially $15 million. The Racing Commission has made
certain recommendations for tax increases on gambling,
all of which I recommend to you, and these if placed in the
General Revenue Fund will produce an additional $3,600,-
000.
There are many who honestly feel that we should tax
groceries and medicine, on the theory that many people in
Florida, living in tax exempt homes, do not pay taxes.
That simply is not so. Ninety per cent of the tax income
of the State of Florida, much of it being returned to cities
and counties, is paid by consumers. The sales tax, cigarette
tax, beverage tax, gambling tax, gasoline tax, auto license
tax, insurance premium tax, and utilities tax are shared
by all. I hate to see the day come in Florida when a family
with many young mouths to feed, and many illnesses to
face, must for those reasons have to pay more taxes.
Too, this is not the last economic crisis Florida will
face. Let us leave some areas for future legislators to
explore. Let us delay this economic intrusion until ad-
vancing technology has reduced the cost of food and
higher levels of income have reduced its significance in
family budgets.
I recommend further that you consider again the
constitutional amendment which passed the Senate over-
whelmingly last session and was on the calendar for
passage by the House of Representatives on the day that
you adjourned, calling for the utilization of the principal
of the educational trust fund for capital outlay at insti-
tutions of higher learning. This fund will amount to $16
million.
PAY AS WE USE
I know that there are those who feel that instead of
raising $125 million by taxation and $125 million by
revenue certificates we should impose upon ourselves in
1963 and 1964 a burden of an additional $250 million of
taxes. I differ with that position for two reasons: (1)



Capital investment in buildings and equipment for higher
education provides benefits solely and exclusively for
those who will use them and profit from them in future
years. Tax appropriations from current general revenue
come directly from the incomes from Florida's present
tax payers. Tax payers of the future, who will gain the
benefits, should help pay for the buildings and equipment



s



in ivinimum foundationn costs, or both, for pay increases
which total $40 million, and that in addition the funds
recommended for increased competence awards by the
Budget Commission, amounting to $10 million, be
appropriated,



-- I -- ---`



SE OF REPRESENTATIVES April 2, 1963

provided for their use. Further, they will have much
more money to provide for the increased needs. (2) When
we reflect on the history of appropriations for higher
education in Florida we might as well recognize that the
likelihood of securing adequate appropriations is very
slim. For institutions in the university system the Legis-
lature has appropriated only $60 million in eleven years.
Realistically, I think it hardly likely that this Legislature
in two years will double appropriations of the last decade.
To those who insist on "pay as you go" I would remind
you that there are two parts of that phrase. One part is
"pay," the other part is "go." I fear that "pay as you go"
will become "don't pay" and "don't go." But Florida must
go.
In our haste to build, we must still be careful to build
wisely. While I would point out to you that this adminis-
tration has been extremely careful on the one hand to
build only the buildings you have authorized and on the
other hand to build all the buildings you have authorized,
it is good government for the Legislature to specify what
it wants done so there can be no mistaking it and then to
provide both the tools to accomplish those purposes and
the guidelines for their accomplishment. I suggest that as
you authorize the use of revenue certificates for higher
education you specify exactly what buildings it is your
judgment should be constructed.
The Florida Space Era Education study just completed
under the guidance of the Board of Control, and the
recommendations of the Board of Control, provide a
sound basis for the preparation of plans by this Legis-
lature for the essential growth of our institutions of
higher learning. I shall promote the introduction of
legislation to implement many of these recommendations,
and I urge you to give them your thoughtful considera-
tion.
I ask that you review the overall administrative struc-
ture of our institutions of higher learning, and to the
extent that greater autonomy and independence of action
is required to accomplish the objectives of higher educa-
tion-grant it. To the extent that you feel democratic
controls must be maintained-preserve them. My own
feeling is that more authority in larger areas should be
granted to the Board of Control with the power of that
Board to delegate that authority, but that democratic
review and popular control should always be possible.
PUBLIC SCHOOLS
At my request, and by your provision, a committee of
dedicated, informed and capable people with broad ranges
of experience, formed a committee to study the problems
of quality education in our public schools. Their recom-
mendations are worthy of your earnest study.
The public schools of Florida are a credit to the state.
In my opinion they are better than the average in the
nation-certainly they are better than we pay for. The
Quality Education Committee has suggested some sound
ways to make them better.
They recommended that the high quality of our teach-
ing staffs continue to be promoted by the requirement of
some objective examination of academic accomplishment
of all candidates for Florida Teaching Certificates. I
concur.
They recommend several means for improving the
salary levels of teachers. I concur in that objective, and
recommend that money be provided, either directly
through increase in Minimum Foundation salary levels,
or through the proposed increase in state participation













They recommend that a Superintendent be empowered
to keep a teacher on an annual basis indefinitely when he
feels the teacher is a poor risk for continuing contract
and when he does not have a better replacement. I concur.
They recommend that the 1963 Legislature continue in
effect some method of granting financial rewards to
meritorious teachers. I concur.
They recommend that by constitutional amendment pro-
fessional requirements for all county school superintend-
ents be developed and enforced. I concur.
They recommend that the office of county school su-
perintendent be made appointive throughout Florida by
constitutional amendment. I would modify that recom-
mendation only to the point of making that decision vol-
untary in each county by referendum.
They recommend that county school board mem-
bers be compensated only on a basis of per diem and ex-
penses, with a legal limit to the total amount each can
receive. I concur.
They recommend that the President's Youth Physical
Fitness Program be a requirement of all physical educa-
tion programs in both elementary and secondary schools.
I concur.
They recommend that adequate funds be appropriated
at each session of the Legislature to finance the "free"
textbook system. I concur, and that recommendation is
included in Budget Commission recommendations.
They recommend that the Legislature be requested to
take the necessary steps to extend the provisions of Sec-
tion 18, Article XII, of the Florida Constitution. Superin-
tendent Bailey has already indicated his intention to in-
troduce legislation for that purpose, and I join in that
proposal.
The recommendations outlined above are expensive.
When added to the $417 million recommended for the De-
partment of Education (excluding junior colleges) by the
Budget Commission it makes a grand total of $457 mil-
lion, an increase over the last biennium of $67 million,
but it is within our means, and it is not in excess of our
needs.
EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION
Florida continues to lead all other states in the number
of educational television stations on the air and in their
use for education. In the last two years alone the number
of public schools in Florida using some instruction via
television has increased from 880 to 1,151, and the number
of enrolled students has increased from 286,000 to 520,000.
The significant contributions of educational television,
as attested by teachers and administrators who are using
it, have been proved in its assistance toward extending
educational opportunities and in enhancing the quality
of instruction in an efficient and economical manner.
The Budget Commission, by recommending the entire
request of the educational television, including operating
capital outlay of $1,798,000, has endorsed this operation.
This appropriation will expand the services for three
existing stations and provide, with local matching con-
tributions, for four new stations: three of them in the
Orlando-Canaveral-Daytona Beach area and the fourth
at Pensacola, and for new stations in our universities at
Boca Raton and Tampa.
I am convinced that expenditure of this money is a good
investment.
FEDERAL AID TO EDUCATION



Over the years there have been many proposals made
in the Congress of the United States, and among groups



11



interested in education everywhere, to provide extensive
federal aid to education. I have been, and am now, op-
posed to the philosophy and proposed operation of these
proposals.
The National Governors' Conference at its meeting at
Hershey, Pennsylvania, in 1962, culminating years of
study of this problem, adopted a memorial to Congress
urging it to enact legislation returning to each of the
fifty states 5% of the personal and individual income
taxes collected within the state, to be used for the im-
provement of education within the state.
The concept of this revenue-sharing proposal is simple.
There is a maximum of control in the state and local com-
munities. There is a minimum of administrative cost.
There is full opportunity for that diversity which has
been the genius of the American system. And yet there
would be the full benefit of federal aid of a financial
nature.
I suggest you consider a memorial to Congress urging
this proposal.
THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN FLORIDA
FLOOD CONTROL DISTRICT
The Budget Commission has recommended a substan-
tial increase in the appropriations to the Flood Control
account of the State Board of Conservation for the prose-
cution of the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control
Project. Progress toward completion of this project from
1949 to date has been outstripped by the rapid develop-
ment of that portion of Florida. It is therefore to the in-
terest of the State to complete the presently authorized
works as rapidly as possible. The Federal Government,
at both the executive and congressional level, indicates
that Federal appropriations will be substantially in-
creased providing Florida can meet its obligation. The
Budget Commission recognizes that acceleration of con-
struction to complete the project within a ten-year period
will result in substantial overall savings to both the State
and the Nation, and therefore has recommended a bien-
nial appropriation of $15,476,000.
Of this recommendation $3 million is requested during
the first year to commence purchase of the vitally needed
water storage lands in the Upper St. Johns River Basin
just west of Florida's missile coast. Acquisition of all of
the lands needed to provide water conservation and flood
control so vital to that area will be a much higher cost,
and I anticipate that the balance of funds required will be
derived from my proposal to establish a Land Management
Division under the Trustees of the Internal Improvement
Fund to acquire these and other lands needed for the public
domain so that we provide for Florida's future. Should
these funds not be made available, it could well mean the loss
of the St. Johns Area for all time and curtailment of the
entire project in central and southern Florida.
SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT
DISTRICT (FOUR RIVERS BASIN PROJECT)
The Board of Conservation has been actively pursuing,
with the Florida congressional delegation, an authorization
by Congress of a flood control program in South Central
and Southwest Florida. We expect to press for a planning
appropriation in this Congress, and for construction money
as rapidly as plans can be completed.
Such a program, which ultimately must be successful, will
require large land acreages, the location of which is well
established, and the Budget Commission has therefore
recommended an appropriation for capital outlay on this



program of $2,426,000. As in the case of the Central and
Southern Florida Flood Control District, it is my hope that
additional funds for land acquisition will be made available
from the establishment of the land acquisition program
described immediately hereafter.



April 2, 1963



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES











JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



LAND ACQUISITION
Florida is a land of varied and abundant natural re-
sources. Because they are essential to so many dependent
programs and purposes, possibly the most important of
these resources are the state's lands and related water areas.
These lands and water areas provide basins for water stor-
age and rights-of-way for canals and waterways; they
support forests and wildlife, afford sanctuary for unique
natural features and provide unlimited opportunity for
numerous outdoor recreational pursuits.
But because we have for so long been blessed with abun-
dant public lands, we have unfortunately given too little
attention to planning for their most beneficial use. At
one time or another over the past century and a quarter
almost two-thirds of Florida's land area has been owned
and controlled by the state. Other vast acreages made up
part of the United States' public domain. Through the years
these lands have virtually all been sold, given away, or
otherwise used as barter without adequate regard for
their intrinsic worth as an indispensable and irreplace-
able natural resource.
Fortunately, several large tracts of key importance have
been set aside for use as parks, forests, and water storage
areas. Numerous small parcels, scattered throughout the
State, are still carried on the open land lists of the Trustees
of the Internal Improvement Fund and the State Board
of Education. But lands are no longer a surplus commodity
in Florida, and, by and large, we are faced today with an
acute shortage of land areas capable of meeting the rapidly
intensifying demands of flood control, outdoor recreation,
wildlife management and various other beneficial public
uses. Indeed, we find ourselves buying, at high cost, lands
which once were already owned by the State.
To meet the problem administratively, we withdrew from
sale at the outset of this administration all remaining
state-owned lands. These were inventoried and their use-
fulness for public purposes assessed. Only those parcels
which cannot be utilized in our long-range, comprehensive
plans are now available for sale or other disposition. Already
a number of valuable tracts have been put to good use in
assisting outdoor recreational development in Dade County,
Collier County, Brevard County and many other localities.
We have also initiated measures to intensify management
and apply true multiple-use principles in the programs for
existing public land areas. The Inter-agency Committee on
Outdoor Recreational Development has proved immensely
successful to date in providing a medium for program co-
ordination in this important field.
Despite our intensive efforts to make the most of what
we already have, we are still far short of meeting the rapidly
growing need for public land areas. The Central and South-
ern Florida Flood Control District and the new Southwest
Florida Water Management District must yet acquire sub-
stantial acreages for water storage purposes. Lengthy
rights-of-way must be acquired for the long-awaited Cross-
"Florida Barge Canal and other waterways projects. The
need for outdoor recreation lands is growing almost twice
as fast as Florida's population, as more and more people
take to the out-of-doors with increasing frequency to hunt,
fish, swim, camp, and enjoy nature.
If Florida is to meet these urgent needs for land and
water areas, an action program of extraordinary scope must
be undertaken without delay. This program must consist
of two equally basic parts. First, we must provide for
greater administrative efficiency and coordination within
the State government to insure that maximum beneficial
use is made of all lands, either already available or yet to
be acquired. Second, we must devise a sound financing
method to meet the cost of the considerable land require-.
ments Florida yet faces.



Over the next few days, I plan to submit to you a number
of bills which would provide for these basic needs. During



E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 2, 1963

the past two years the matter has been given much careful
thought, and the legislative program I present to you
will reflect the most comprehensive and economically sound
approach available to us.
I urge your careful and complete consideration of this
program for land acquisition. In my opinion, no matter is
of greater importance to Florida today. We are now at the
proverbial crossroads. Either we must act boldly and quickly
or resign ourselves to the serious and lasting consequences
of inaction.
THE CONSERVATION DEPARTMENT
During the past 18 months, in accordance with the recom-
mendations of the Legislature, the Conservation Depart-
ment has been completely reorganized. Florida's new Con-
servation Department is now performing in the manner
expected by the people of Florida.
All responsibilities in the fields of information and edu-
cation, personnel, and purchasing have been consolidated in
the Division of Administration. In the Salt Water Fisheries
Division, research activities have been tripled and law
enforcement has been intensified. Total income, not includ-
ing appropriations, from all sources was $728,179.99 in fiscal
year 1961-62 compared to $284,377.23 in fiscal year 1960-61,
while administrative costs including activities of the Florida
Boating Council and the operation of two Boating Safety
Teams, increased only $61,374.73. Oyster beds increased
from 1,904 acres under lease at the close of 1960, to 6,016
acres in December 1962, and oyster production reached an
all time high.
The Water Resources Division has been exceedingly
active during the biennium. The Southwest Florida Water
Management District has been activated and the long
awaited low-level dam on the Suwannee River has been con-
structed. Water Resources Regulatory District No. 1 in
Hillsborough County has been created, and a program of
long-range planning for comprehensive water resources
management has been initiated with the Mid-Gulf Basin
Study.
The Geological Division presently has underway 43 major
studies that will provide additional data on the State's
mineral, water, and other natural resources required by
an expanding, vigorous and healthy economy. The division
has assisted in establishment or expansion of approximately
100 companies that produce or use the State's minerals.
Each year mineral production in Florida reaches a new
high-$193 million in 1962.
The Waterways Development Division was created by the
1961 Legislature but no funds were appropriated. The re-
sponsibilities in this program were so urgent that other
departmental funds were utilized in this field. Activities of
the various District and State Authorities have been co-
ordinated with those of the Board and the Corps of En-
gineers. A unified Statewide Florida Program was presented
to the Bureau of the Budget and to the Committees of
Congress. The effectiveness of the program is reflected in
the increased Federal funds available to Florida this fiscal
year.
It is planned that in the coming biennium activities in
all phases of the conservation effort will be greatly ac-
celerated. More biological studies will be required to properly
control dredging and filling of our bays as new real estate
developments come into being. It is imperative that our
biologists find the cause and put an end to the Red Tide
menace. We must acquire the necessary water storage lands
for the construction of adequate reservoirs to prevent
droughts in our agricultural areas, and at the same time,



we must construct the necessary drainage structures to
protect our citizens and our land from devastating floods.
Our waterways should be developed to the fullest potential
both for recreational and industrial use.
An active archaeological department should be brought













into being to preserve Florida's rich and colorful history.
The Board of Conservation should be given the respon-
sibility for developing a program of providing hurricane
protection and beach erosion control work in cooperation
with the Federal government, which is prepared to provide
"a high proportion of the cost. Federal funds are available at
"a high ratio of economic benefits to cost.
GAME AND FRESH WATER FISH COMMISSION
For the past two years great progress has been made
in the field of game and fresh water fish conservation and
management. The Commission has striven to improve the
quality of its law enforcement and the caliber of its officers,
using competitive examination for employment and rec-
ognizing ability and performance as the criteria for ad-
vancement.
The Commission has nearly completed its statewide radio
communication network-an extremely important part of
the Civil Defense System.
In the 1962-63 season, Florida hunters enjoyed the finest
hunting season and the greatest harvest of game in many
years. Florida's nationally admired system of Wildlife
Management Areas received the highest recorded usage
this year. Deer and turkey are more than three times as
abundant now as they were fifteen years ago, and continue
to increase. Improvement in management techniques for
quail has increased Florida's potential for this fine game
bird many-fold. The opening of managed dove fields for
public hunting has been tremendously popular and suc-
cessful, particularly in the heavily populated southeastern
section of the State.
Probably most promising have been the spectacular
results from the application of scientific fish management
techniques developed and put in operation by Commission
biologists. Outstanding among these are Lake Parker in
Lakeland where a program based on the application of
$2,000 worth of chemical followed by proper restocking
changed a poor fishing lake to an excellent one, with 46,-
000 bass and 31,485 bream being taken during the first
9 days the lake was reopened. Bear Lake in Santa Rosa
County was constructed by the Commission at a cost of
$43,000 with funds made available by the Legislature. On
the opening weekend 2,500 fishermen harvested approxi-
mately 10,000 pounds of bass, bream, and channel catfish.
If Florida is to meet the ever increasing demand for
hunting and fishing for our residents and visitors, funds
must be made available for two principal purposes: acqui-
sition and management of lands for public hunting; lake
construction, and access to and management of existing
waters for public fishing. Legislation will be introduced
to increase both hunting and fishing license fees to raise
funds for these purposes. I urge your support of this
legislation.
PARKS AND HISTORIC MEMORIALS
Florida's State Parks have made modest gains this
biennium. We have acquired 2,462 acres of land by dona-
tion and have purchased an additional 40 acres. We have
activated the following parks: Bahia Honda, Monroe
County; Falling Waters, Washington County; John D.
Pennekamp, Monroe County; Lake Griffin, Lake County;
Fort Gadsden Historic Memorial, Liberty County and
Cedar Key Historic Memorial, Levy County. The State
Road Department has completed paving roads and parking
areas in Myakka River State Park, Sarasota County;
Hillsborough River State Park in Hillsborough County,
and the Boat Basin Parking Area at Tomoka State Park,
Volusia County. Buildings and improvements have been
completed at a cost of $116,141 and we have buildings
and improvements under construction at an estimated cost



of $290,919.
While the population of the State of Florida increased



13



by 79% from 1950 to 1960, visitation to our parks has
increased by 668% in the same period.
Our greatest immediate need is for park facilities, such
as restrooms, museums, picnic pavilions, equipment shel-
ters, etc., to develop the areas not opened to the public
which are now owned by the Service, and to develop the
new areas we expect to acquire by donation in the next
two years.
Our future needs will be for additional areas. Prac-
tically all of the areas acquired in the last ten years
have been through generous donations. This we cannot
rely upon for the future. A systematic plan for land
acquisition is a must if the Florida Park Service is to
meet the expected demand for public service in the field
of preserving our natural heritage and our historic sites
throughout the state.
FORESTRY
Marked progress has been made by the Florida Forest
Service in the past two years. More than 200 million
seedlings were planted; four new forestry projects were
established; 400 thousand additional acres of forest land
were brought under protection. Wild fires burn annually
an average of less than 1% of Florida's 17 million acres
of protected land, while more than 30% of the 3 million
acres of unprotected land are burned.
As long as people use the woods, forest fires will be a
problem. We are trying to promote multiple use of land,
including recreational use, and this greatly increases the
forest fire hazard and forest management cost. In order
for the vast acreages of privately owned land to be made
available for public use, the state must provide the neces-
sary forest fire protection. The major concern of these
land owners is a revision of the liability laws to protect
them from law suits where public use of privately owned
lands is permitted and, as recommended elsewhere, this
protection must be granted.
Our forests could grow two or three times as much
wood if all forest lands were protected from fire, if seed-
lings were planted on the millions of acres needing plant-
ing, and if all land were under good forest management.
This would, double or triple the economic value of our
vast forest industry, now valued at $500 million annually.
In spite of our tremendous forest growth 40% of the
pulp wood used by Florida mills comes from adjoining
states.
The personnel turnover of the Forestry Department,
over 25% annually, is too high for efficiency. A study
should be made to determine the cause of that turnover,
and the cause removed.
RATIFICATION OF THE ANTI-POLL
TAX AMENDMENT
I call to your attention another matter to which I attach
great importance. This is the ratification of the proposed
Amendment to the Constitution of the United States which
would eliminate the payment of a poll tax or any other
tax as a requirement for voting for President or Vice
President, for electors for President or Vice President,
or for Senators or Representatives in Congress.
I shall submit to the Legislature shortly a Joint Reso-
lution of the 87th Congress of the United States proposing
this important Amendment to the Constitution. As all of
you are aware, the former distinguished Governor of
Florida, United States Senator Spessard L. Holland, is
the author of this Amendment, which is co-sponsored by
our other distinguished Senator, Honorable George A.
Smathers.



This Joint Resolution of the 87th Congress was sub-
mitted by the General Services Administrator of the
Federal Government to the Governors of the respective

aA&,mi ai f I a o l& I"i I1AIl1lr



14 JOURNAL VOF I THE Huu:

States of the Union for consideration by their Legisla-
tures. It was previously adopted by the Congress of the
United States by overwhelming majorities in each House.
I am informed that to date the Legislatures of 29 States
have ratified the Amendment. I am likewise advised that
the Amendment is now under consideration by the Legis-
latures of several other States whose Legislatures are
now in session, with excellent prospects of early approval.
In my opinion, adoption of this Amendment by the re-
spective States would constitute an important contribu-
tion to sound government. It would, without question,
bring about greater participation by otherwise qualified
voters. The experience which we have had in Florida since
elimination of the poll tax in 1937, and the experience of
other States proves this, as well as the fact that cleaner
local government has resulted in some counties.
Aside from these established facts, I, together with
most of you, have felt strongly for years that the voter,
who is otherwise qualified, should not have a price set
upon his right to participate in the selection of his lead-
ers, nor have his right to vote abridged or denied because
of his failure, through poverty or oversight, to pay a poll
tax or any other such tax.
The submission by the Congress to the respective State
Legislatures of this proposed Amendment to the Constitu-
tion is the proper manner in which this objective should
be achieved. It is clear beyond refutation that changes
in the election machinery for Federal elections are Con-
stitutional matters which should not be approached by
Federal statutes, as has been unsuccessfully attempted
in Congress for more than twenty years, with resulting
bitter divisions in our country.
I, therefore, recommend to the Legislature the early
ratification of this proposed Constitutional Amendment.
I believe such action would be a constructive step.forward
toward better government.
STATE RACING COMMISSION
The State Racing Commission has reorganized its ad-
ministrative staff, set up an investigative staff, instituted
training programs for its employees, developed an audi-
tor's manual showing the proper methods to be followed
in calculating the various pools at pari-mutuel establish-
ments, and held examinations to insure that employees
understand how to perform their tasks.
Employees of the Commission have not had a raise in
pay since 1957. The Commission has requested that they
be allowed to increase employee's pay $2 per day. The
request is in the interest of the State, and I recommend
that it be granted.
INTANGIBLE TAX
The 1961 Legislature reduced the rate of the intangibles
tax upon Class B intangibles from 2 mills to 11/2 mills for
the 1962-63 tax year, and provided that it should be re-
duced further to 1 mill for 1964-65. You did so to encour-
age a capital inflow, to improve the assessment and col-
lection process, and upon the representation by Florida
bankers that such a reduction in rate would not in fact
reduce the yield.
To date this has proven true. It is anticipated that the
yield in 1963-64 (the last year at 1/2 mills) will be roughly
equal to the yield in 1961-62. Our tax experts advise me,
however, that this is true largely because of improved



assessment and collection practices, and that further im-
provements of the same order are not probable. In antici-
pating our income for 1964-65, therefore, we are taking
into account a reduction under 1962-63 of approximately
$5 million.



By Chapter 61-478, Laws of Florida, the 1961 Legisla-



bi



cers of the major state agencies all must have levels of
compensation consonant with their responsibility and ade-
quate to permit them to live on an economic level com-
parable with that of persons of similar degree in private
employment. Government is too important-its decisions
too significant for each of us-for unreasonable limitations
to be placed upon either the encouragement for or rewards
of top quality personnel in responsible positions. I recom-
mend a thorough review of our policy and practices in this



E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 2, 1963

ture provided that the matching contributions from the
Intangible Tax Fund for the employee contributions to
the State and County Officers and Employees Retirement
Fund should be equal to the net amount of such contribu-
tions, rather than the gross amount.
When the bill was originally drawn and introduced,
this provision was worded so as to become a permanent
provision of the Intangible Tax chapter of Florida Stat-
utes. By amendment on the floor of the House, the act
was made to read ". during the period from July 1,
1961 to June 30, 1963." When the slip law was printed
the amendment to the bill was omitted, so that anyone
relying upon the slip law would never learn that the pro-
vision is due to expire at the end of the current biennium.
In the 1963 Legislative Budget for the Intangible Tax
Fund, no account was taken of the expiration of the net
matching requirement. Amounts budgeted in the State
and County Officers and Employees Retirement Fund for
1963-65 include refunds amounting to $5,500,000 and
$6,000,000 for the two years respectively. Consequently,
the amounts estimated to be available for transfer to the
General Revenue Fund in 1963-65 must be reduced by
those same amounts unless the net matching requirement
is reenacted.
I, therefore, recommend that Chapter 122.17, Florida
Statutes, 1961, be amended to remove the June 30, 1963,
expiration date of such provisions.
CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION
Since I first became a member of the Constitutional Re-
vision Committee of the Florida Bar in 1946, the revision
of the Florida Constitution has been my constant goal.
My experience has led me to conclude that it is impossible
to secure revision under the present provisions of our
State Constitution.
In 1958 the Florida Supreme Court held that constitu-
tional revision must be accomplished on an article by article
basis unless the convention method is used. Past attempts
to revise the Constitution article by article have not met
with success and further endeavors along this line appear
to be impractical if not impossible. It, therefore, appears
that the best approach to complete revision is by an amend-
ment to Article XVII to provide for a more practical solu-
tion to the problem.
I, therefore, concur in the recommendation of the Con-
stitutional Revision Committee of the Florida Bar and urge
you to submit this proposed amendment of Article XVII
to the people for ratification at the next general election.
If approved, the Legislature then would be in a position to
revise the Constitution and not be troubled with the present
impossible solution of trying to revise the Constitution
article by article.
JUDICIAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE COMPENSATION
The proper level of pay of public officials, especially those
with great responsibility and authority, is always difficult
to determine. It is true that officials, judicial and adminis-
trative, "know what the job pays" when they seek or accept
their position, but if that fact satisfies our sense of equity,
it still does not meet the basic consideration. The members
of the Supreme Court and lesser courts, the members of the
Cabinet, the "Little Cabinet," and the chief executive offi-













area and suggest that any increase in compensation for the
Governor be made effective in January 1965.
LEGISLATIVE RESTRICTIONS ON SALARIES
AND POSITIONS
I would like to bring to your attention the matter of the
many restrictions placed on the state agencies in the legis-
lative "spending philosophy" relating to specific Budget
Commission approval of all salaries in excess of $10,000
per annum, numbers of positions allowable in certain areas,
payments from more than one appropriation, etc. These
restrictions are placing an unusually heavy burden of paper
work upon the agencies and requiring considerable staff
time at all levels in order to effectively carry out the intent
of the legislature. They are undoubtedly hampering effec-
tive administration to some degree. As the session pro-
gresses, I hope to have the opportunity to discuss these
problems with you to the end that greater flexibility be
permitted the agencies for internal administration.
Specifically at this time, and as a minimum, I recommend
that you provide flexibility in the area of Higher Education
to the extent that express approval by the Budget Commis-
sion be required only for a salary in excess of $15,000 per
annum for personnel in the University System whose pri-
mary duty is teaching and research. This would not include
personnel in the non-academic areas of general adminis-
tration, extension, counselling, libraries, etc. For this type
of personnel, and for personnel in all other State agencies,
I recommend that the limitation be increased from $10,000
per annum to $12,500 per annum.
CAPITOL CENTER
The problem of rebuilding the center of our historic
capitol has been one which has defied solution for many
years. The elements of a solution are now at hand.
Because of the wonderful cooperation of Leon County
and the City of Tallahassee we have been able, with funds
to date acquired from the Trustees of the Internal Improve-
ment Fund, to acquire a large acreage between the Apa-
lachee Parkway, Adams Street South, and the railroad, for
the land needs of the government in Tallahassee. The Road
Department has initiated plans for the construction of a
new building to house its employees now divided between
the Holland Building and the old Caroline Brevard School.
This building should be completed in the early months of
1965, at which time the buildings now occupied by the Road
Department will be available for other use. I recommend
that an appropriation be made to the Board of Commis-
sioners of State Institutions to enable it to purchase from
the Road Department the two buildings it now uses, and
in addition, funds for planning the reconstruction of the
center of the capitol. When the State Road Department
building has been completed and the Holland Building
and the Caroline Brevard School are vacated, employees in
the center of the capitol can be moved into those vacated
buildings, the center of the capitol demolished and recon-
structed through an appropriation made by the 1965 Legis-
lature, and those employees then moved back into the new
center of the capitol. At that time the need for further
office space by the ever growing government can be satisfied
by the transfer of other agencies and employees into the
Holland Building and Caroline Brevard Building.
We have had appraisals made of the Holland Building
and the Caroline Brevard Building and those appraisals are
available for your guidance if you approve of this plan.
WORLD'S FAIR
In 1964 there will take place in New York a World's



Fair at which it is anticipated there will be in attendance
75 million people from all over the world. After full con-
sideration of the significance and cost of Florida's par-
ticipation, and consultation with the Cabinet, members
of the Development Commission, and business leaders



15



throughout Florida, I reached the conclusion that Florida
could not afford not to be represented-and it, of course,
follows that Florida's representation must be second to
none.
Decisions had to be made so that Florida could proceed,
and one of the finest land areas, situated on a lake, visible
from two major expressways, was acquired for the Florida
exhibit. An investment of $3 million was determined to
be necessary in this high cost area of construction, and,
again in consultation with the Cabinet, it was decided
that the Legislature should be requested to provide $1
million from general revenue towards this project. I make
that request, and urge its early and favorable considera-
tion, because the need for action in construction is so
great.
STATE LIBRARIES
We must do more to encourage an understanding of this
state with the longest history of any of the fifty in the
American union. To me, it is more important than might
appear on the surface that all citizens appreciate the heri-
tage which is theirs in Florida. To be aware of that in-
heritance, shared automatically by all who take up resi-
dence in Florida, is to have a deeper concern for what
we do with what we have here today.
A very real beginning has been made by individuals
and institutions. There is a superb archive of documentary
photographs of Florida's past at Florida State Univer-
sity's Library. The University of Florida possesses a
splendid collection of, among other things, Florida news-
papers from earlier days. The Florida Historical Society's
extensive holdings are lodged at the University of South
Florida. The State's own Library here has gathered books,
maps, and documents of tremendous historical value.
What we need right now is to put all this knowledge to
greater use, primarily by making our citizens aware of
what already exists.
To stimulate this interest, I respectfully suggest empha-
sizing a responsibility which long has been that of the
State Library Board. A good deal can be accomplished
simply by changing the name of the State Library to the
State Library and Historical Archives, and the name of
the board to the Florida Library and Historical Commis-
sion. I believe the base of direct citizen participation
should be broadened by increasing the membership from
three to seven.
Further, the momentum developed by the Florida Civil
War Centennial Commission in stimulating public inter-
est in historical matters should be maintained by merging
this Commission in the future with the new Florida Library
and Historical Commission.
Finally, I commend to your attention the efforts of
Florida's citizen-supported public libraries toward self-
improvement. The strong stimulus of the Extension Serv-
ice of the Florida State Library, and the wise administra-
tion by Dr. Dorothy Dodd, the State Librarian, of funds
you authorized in 1961, have done much to spur the
growth and broaden the service of Florida's libraries.
PUBLIC HEALTH
The health of our citizens, the quality of the air we
breathe and of the water we use for domestic or recrea-
tional purposes are concerns of highest importance. As
new subdivisions are opened or extended and as new in-
dustries are implanted, problems of importance to every
citizen are created. There must be assurance that Florida
builds with due consideration to the health of its citizens
and the purity of its air and water. That this shall be so
is one of the responsibilities of the State Board of Health.



As we encourage growth and as we urge new industries
to locate in Florida, we must simultaneously assure that
this agency, which is responsible for the protection of

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES











16 JOURNAL OF THE HOU

our most valuable natural resources, has the support
necessary for its important activities.
Florida's public health program is predominantly a
state and county cooperative activity. It is in the counties
that community health services are provided for the pre-
vention of infectious diseases, for the promotion of bet-
ter health of mothers and children, for providing suppor-
tive aid to patients returning from mental hospitals, for
guarding environmental influences affecting health and
for many other purposes. Of recent years essential ex-
pansions in this cooperative program have been entirely
at the expense of the counties. These health units need
and warrant added support.
Our local health departments are giving increasing at-
tention to problems in mental health. Their pioneering
programs are proving highly effective in aiding in crises
and markedly reducing the need for commitment to men-
tal hospitals and are making possible earlier discharges
because of the follow-up services provided. Such pro-
grams, with great advantage to Florida, could be extended
through strengthening local health units.
A newsworthy and grossly over-publicized epidemic oc-
curred late in 1962 in the Tampa Bay area counties. This
infection has its origin predominantly in wild and do-
mestic birds and is transmitted to man by the bites of
particular mosquitoes. This was the largest but was not
the first outbreak of encephalitis in Florida. Hopefully
it may be the last, but this will be so only if more exact
knowledge of this health hazard is accumulated and ef-
fective preventive measures are applied. The epidemic
was a hazard to health and very disturbing to the econ-
omy. Self interest indicates support for needed study,
surveillance and control measures.
MEDICAL ASSISTANCE TO THE AGED
Florida has been a pioneer in providing for medical
assistance to the indigent. In 1955 the Legislature estab-
lished a state fund to aid counties with matching funds
in providing hospital care and other health services for
the needy sick of all ages. We have not, however, main-
tained our leadership in this field.
We are all concerned, I know, about the growing num-
ber of persons who take up residence here who are chron-
ically ill. A percentage of these people are also medically
indigent. They are able to meet the ordinary expenses of
daily living, but are unable to pay for hospitalization
for acute illness and for special costly types of chronic
illness requiring treatment outside of a hospital.
A recent survey shows that Florida counties are spend-
ing in excess of $20 million yearly for medical care of
the acutely ill indigent, in addition to the fifty cents per
capital required for participation in our limited state-
county program of hospital service for the indigent. This
program of hospital care which has worked well so far
can be improved by taking advantage of the federal legis-
lation which makes funds available to our state on a
matching basis by the establishment of a program of
medical assistance for the aged (MAA).
I call to your attention the fact that the federal legisla-
tion (Kerr-Mills Act) authorizes the State to purchase
many different kinds of medical care. We may, if you
desire, "purchase" hospital services plus one or more
out-of-hospital services, and in this fashion design a medi-
cal program to fit our greatest needs and our financial
ability.
The action of the Budget Commission in denying funds



for an expanded program was not taken because of oppo-
sition to such a program, but because the budget was
based on a continuation of the existing level of services,
properly leaving to you a determination as to whether an
expansion of services should be undertaken.



S



- -- -- ------



This farsighted approach to public welfare is coupled
with a long-standing recommendation for a permissive
statute to allow the state to recover assistance funds from
the estates of former recipients, after their death. The
proposed bill is written to prevent any citizen from being
penalized or treated unfairly. It adds dignity to welfare
by encouraging the aged to feel that they are actually
participating in the program by helping the state to give



E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 2, 1963

It is my recommendation to you that, acting upon ad-
vice available from the Department of Welfare and the
State Board of Health, you formulate a plan which au-
thorizes the following services: Hospitalization, home
nursing care and outpatient clinic services so designed
as to permit federal reimbursement under the Kerr-Mills
Act for expenditures made by the counties and state.
In the financial recommendations contained elsewhere
in this message I am including $3 million to cover the
cost of this extension during the next biennium.
WELFARE
During the four years past, the Welfare Department has
labored under a statutory ceiling of about 1,300 positions,
in addition to the dollar limit of its appropriation. These
limits have contributed to the Department's inability to
give the people of Florida the quality of service needed.
Because of these limitations there is a backlog of 8,800
applications for assistance from troubled people. And,
although there are 2,500 children in foster home care,
there are still 45 counties which do not have a child wel-
fare worker, and no county has enough of this staff to
keep up with the growing need.
These limits on staff have also forced the Department
to drop services which, under Florida Statutes, it is re-
quired to give.
Our State Welfare Department is required by the Flor-
ida Statutes to make an advantageous use of the fpnd
matching provisions of the national Social Security Law.
For a number of years the principal emphasis of Florida's
public assistance program has been on the monthly wel-
fare check. The people of Florida have increasingly ex-
pressed their dissatisfaction with some of the results of
this kind of program.
The State Welfare Department, with the cooperation
of many members of this Legislature, has made every
effort to meet social problems with carefully designed
programs that are rehabilitative in nature. For instance,
in the last three and a half years, the department has
administered a stringent but fair suitable home law.
During the past two years the department has made avail-
able to the counties food commodities donated by our
national government for direct distribution to needy peo-
ple by the counties. Eleven counties have this program
fully in operation, and four others are considering it.
This same period has seen also the growth of child
welfare services for those youngsters whose own homes,
and parents, have for some reason failed them. And, there
is an increased awareness of the need to expand foster
home care and to have adoption placement service avail-
able for more children.
By this progress, our Welfare Department is now ready
to pick up the challenge offered by human failings so
diverse in nature as to be called social problems, and to
plan toward a program of social rehabilitation.
For the next two years the Department has such a plan,
outlined in its legislative budget, to start this humane,
efficient, and economical program. This plan has one prin-
ciple: to do those things which will most quickly enable
people to need less from the state, through services de-
signed to help them achieve their own social rehabilita-
tion. It deserves your consideration.













needy people assistance they need, when they need it.
I give it my unqualified endorsement.
PRISONS
The custody of our prison population, its management
and rehabilitation have severely tested our resources and
ingenuity these last two years. The Budget Commission
has released the money you appropriated for beginning
construction of the Sumter Correctional Institution and
the Reception and Medical Center at Lake Butler. We
have also recommended to you that funds be appropriated
to continue that construction. Since the Budget Commis-
sion deliberations, however, it has become my opinion that
the completion of these two institutions should be ac-
complished in two phases, each useful, the first phase
to be provided for in 1963-65, the second phase in 1965-67.
In view of our over-all capital outlay needs, such a sched-
ule is more nearly consistent with the order of priority
which I assign to these needs.
I, therefore, recommend that you appropriate for con-
struction at Sumter Correctional Institution $2,430,458,
which, of course, is in addition to the $1,000,000 you ap-
propriated in 1961, and which contemplates an additional
appropriation of $2,069,542 by the 1965 Legislature for
the construction of the final phase of the institution.
I further recommend that you appropriate for construc-
tion at the Reception Center at Lake Butler $4,477,504
in addition to the $798,000 you appropriated in 1961. This
sum will provide for the basic facilities required except
for the hospital portion, and for this period the hospital
at Raiford can continue to be used. A further appropria-
tion in 1965 of $1,924,496 will complete this Reception and
Medical Center.
The above recommendations do not contemplate the use
of prison labor. Should that be authorized, I am advised
that the sums provided would be adequate to substantially
complete construction.
A review should be made of the work week and salary
levels at the Road Prisons. Road Prison officer salaries
are lower than in the major institutions and these officers
are frequently required to be at the road prisons in excess
of 80 hours per week. This has resulted in an extreme an-
nual turnover of personnel of 47.7% in the road prisons
which is neither economical nor efficient. The Budget
Commission, of course, recommended salary levels in
keeping with our "maintenance of existing level" policy,
so that a review of that policy in this exceptional case
is especially appropriate.
PAROLE AND PROBATION
Aside from the difficulty and expense of building
enough prisons to house the incoming prison population,
we are face to face with the established fact that prison
is not always the way to salvage the best of lawbreakers
who have been caught and convicted. There are over
15,000 convicted persons in Florida today not in prison.
Florida turned to probation and parole some 21 years
ago, in an effort to recapture the useful manhood and
womanhood that otherwise would be almost a total waste.
In doing so, we first recognized that probation and parole
cannot be applied safely to some convicts for whom im-
prisonment is the only way to protect the law-abiding
citizens. These are the criminals hardened by years in
prison, by years in slums, or who simply are dominated
by evil inner forces our social scientists are only now be-
ginning to recognize. When these convicts finally com-
plete their terms and are released, nearly three-fourths
can be counted on to break the law again.
But such is not the case with a majority of those we



call convicts. When probation or parole is applied prop-
erly, 85 percent become good law-abiding providers, fill-
ing jobs satisfactorily, supporting their dependents. And



17



the cost to the state to supervise a parolee is one-tenth
the cost of confinement.
The beginnings of a bold and constructive change in
our approach to the criminal problem in modern society
has led to two forms of control of those persons who need
not be confined. Both are administered by the Florida
Probation and Parole Commission. Probation is deter-
mined in each instance by the court in which a person
has been convicted of major crime. Parole is determined
by the Commission, after extended study of those already
in prison or jail. In each, the convict is released to a
limited freedom, where there is strong evidence that he
can support himself and his dependents and live peace-
ably. Both methods of limited release are regulated by the
Parole Commission, through a staff of supervisors.
Probation and parole have cut the prison population
of Florida in half. These methods have helped to stop
the vicious cycle of crime, prison, release, and then more
crime. Persons coming out of prison under the supporting
control of parole are much more apt to remain law-abid-
ing and respectable, than are those simply turned out
of prison without the benefit of parole to direct the way
back into their communities.
But both these methods of coping with the products
of crime depend upon state manpower: Supervisors of
the Parole Commission, each of whom can safely su-
pervise only a limited number of individuals. An emer-
gency Budget Commission release last year enabled the
Commission to add enough personnel to meet a real crisis
in our prison situation, and this problem calls for con-
tinuing study. The request of the Commission for man-
power has been set before the Budget Commission, and
should be given careful study by the Legislature.
The successful operation of the Parole Commission will
give Florida vastly more returns for its money than a
statistical reduction in the number of those for whom
we are building more and more prisons. This manpower
will return working, sober, law-respecting men and women
to the kind of production in their communities that pro-
vides care for wives and children and dependents. This
released manpower will cut the state cost of confinement
from $3.54 per day per inmate to less than 40 cents per
day for parole supervision.

PUBLIC DEFENDER SYSTEM
Poverty has long been a problem in the administration
of justice because of the inability of indigent persons,
accused of crime, to obtain legal assistance in the
handling of their defense. In this era of social conscious-
ness, it is unthinkable that an innocent man may be
condemned to penal servitude because he is unfamiliar
with the intricacies of criminal procedure and unable to
provide counsel for his defense.
The Sixth Amendment to the Constitution of the United
States guarantees that in all criminal prosecutions the
accused shall have the assistance of counsel. For many
years, under former decisions of the Nation's highest
court, it was held that this applied solely to federal
courts, and relying thereon, Florida provided legal
assistance only in capital cases. On March 18, 1963, the
Supreme Court of the United States, in the case of
Gideon v. Wainwright, a Florida case, overturned this
long-standing rule and held that indigent persons in a
criminal case in the state courts have the constitutional
right to be represented by counsel. The alternative is a
discharge upon habeas corpus of felons when this respon-
sibility of due process is not met. Therefore, the estab-
lishment of a public defender in each of the sixteen



judicial circuits of Florida is now not only necessary to
protect the innocent but is necessary in order that valid
judgments of guilty may be entered and criminals kept
confined for the protection of society.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES










18 JOURNAL OF THE HOU

A recent survey indicates that more than 4,000 persons
now detained in our state penitentiary did not have
counsel, and if the rule of the Gideon case is retroactive,
Florida is confronted with a serious problem-if not a
crisis-in keeping incarcerated hardened criminals who
were convicted, or pled guilty, without counsel.
After months of study the Judicial Council prepared
legislation which you will receive in due time, providing
for sixteen (16) public defenders, as opposites of our
sixteen (16) state's attorneys. The Chairman of the Coun-
cil is also Chief Justice of our State Supreme Court and is
prepared to make available to your committees the statis-
tics and result of the study supporting the plan. I
recommend the legislation proposed by the Council and
urge its immediate passage.
MENTAL HEALTH
Florida has made tremendous strides in the treatment
of those unfortunate persons afflicted with mental
disease. Our treatment program uses all the modern
concepts of psychiatric treatment with emphasis on
returning the patient to his community as early as pos-
sible. Follow-up care clinics have been established at
two of our hospitals with plans being developed for ex-
tension of the program to the other two hospitals. There
are now over 2,300 patients on trial visit to their homes,
many of whom are receiving follow-up assistance. By
these means, although a record 5,805 patients were ad-
mitted to the four hospitals for the year ending June 30,
1962, the net increase in patients was only 148.
Good progress has been made in the program to replace
certain old buildings in the continued treatment section
of the Florida State Hospital at Chattahoochee. One re-
placement building was completed and occupied in 1962;
construction of another such building was begun in 1962
and will be completed and occupied in the summer of
1963; contract was recently let for the third such re-
placement building to be completed and occupied in the
summer of 1964. A new medical-surgical building was
completed at the G. Pierce Wood Memorial Hospital at
Arcadia in the summer of 1962 providing 165 additional
beds. Five new buildings were completed during 1962 at
the Northeast Florida State Hospital at Macclenny pro-
viding 400 additional beds.
All perquisites to employees under the Division of
Mental Health were discontinued July 1, 1961, and
salaries adjusted to compensate for the loss of perquisites.
On December 1, 1962, all employees under the Division
were placed on a 40-hour, five-day work week. This has
materially increased the morale of employees, especially
in the lower income brackets. A pay plan with annual
increments, subject to individual evaluation, has been
drawn up to be placed in effect on July 1, 1963.
The Budget Commission has included in its capital
outlay recommendations an expenditure of $5,952,800 for
the Division of Mental Health institutions. This will
provide an additional 300 bed capacity at Hollywood,
will replace two ward buildings at Chattahoochee (thus
completing the replacement program that has been going
on during my entire governmental experience), and pro-
vide necessary improvements and additions at Carlstrom
Field. We expect to release a 1961 appropriation for
further construction at Macclenny, and I recommend that
you consider additionally an appropriation of $500,000
to provide a 25 bed child psychotic unit at Gainesville to
be operated in conjunction with the medical school there.
SUNLAND TRAINING CENTERS



S



Capacity of our Sunland Training Centers was in-
creased by 688 during this biennium to 4,114. As of March
20, 1963, there were 3,658 mentally retarded persons in
residence in the four centers, with applicants being ad-
mitted from a waiting list of 1,130.



E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 2, 1963

The Budget Commission has recommended funds to
increase the capacity of the Marianna institution from
288 to 684, and the Ft. Myers institution from 960 to
1,000. It has also recommended money for the planning
and the beginning of construction of a new Sunland
Training Center in southeast Florida on a site which has
not yet been acquired, but which we expect to acquire
without cost to the state.
Quality-wise, Florida is providing care and training to
the mentally retarded that is the equal of that provided
by any of the states of the union, and Budget Commission
recommendations are adequate to provide for continued
improvements of that quality.
CHILD TRAINING SCHOOLS
The Division of Child Training schools has a present
capacity of 1450, and a population of 1425, with a waiting
list of 75. The Budget Commission has recommended an
increased capacity of 100 at Okeechobee, and it is antic-
ipated that plans now being prepared for the institutions
at Ocala and Forest Hills will be let for construction
bids in May or June of this year. Again, I am proud to
report that the quality of care is excellent.
The Florida Council of Juvenile Court Judges is ac-
tively sponsoring a bill that would establish an after-care
program for boys and girls leaving the training schools.
This is a program that is in effect on a statewide basis
in practically all states and has been found quite bene-
ficial. There is some question in my mind as to whether
this program could not be better operated as an arm of
the Parole Commission, but in one form or another it
deserves your careful and favorable attention.
MUNICIPAL AFFAIRS
The League of Municipalities and municipal officials
generally have endorsed and proposed to secure the intro-
duction of legislation increasing the tax on the standard
cigarette pack from five to eight cents. Such an increase
will produce for cities in excess of $26 million annually,
and will do much to meet the needs of cities particularly
for capital outlay funds. In my opinion, such an increase
is justified and wise.
In the administration of the Governor's office it has
become apparent that a much closer liaison with local
government would be helpful both to local government
and to the Governor's office. There should be an informed
and available administrative assistant in the Governor's
office whose sole function would be to serve as a conduit
from local officials of their needs to the state government
and a means by which the Governor's office can be most
effective in utilizing its substantial powers to assist local
government. The recommendations of the Budget Com-
mission include a salary for such an administrative assist-
ant, and I strongly urge that this recommendation be fol-
lowed. In doing so, we will be following a pattern which
has been successfully adopted in a great many states
of the union which have experienced similar problems.
THE FLORIDA NATIONAL GUARD
The Florida National Guard has completed one of its
most critical and successful periods. Since you met in
1961, Major General Henry W. McMillan has replaced
Lieutenant General Mark Lance, who retired, as Adjutant
General, and our Guard has been completely reorganized.



As a result of the plan of the Department of Defense
to reorganize the Army National Guard, Florida received
a troop allocation which was completely unacceptable be-
cause it did not meet the minimum requirements of our
State. Acting under express provisions of the law, I
rejected the allocation and instructed General McMillan
to negotiate with the National Guard Bureau and the
Department of the Army for a realistic troop basis for
Florida. Acting through the National Governors' Confer-










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



ence I took exception to the Department proposal in a
number of problem areas.
These efforts, in fortuitous circumstances, were suc-
cessful, and an acceptable troop allocation has been
received and approved. Florida was the first state to
effect a major reorganization, and for the first time since
1918 the organizations of the Florida Army National
Guard are not shared, with any other state. For the first
time our units will attend summer field training at the
same time and place as a complete command. The benefits
from this are obvious.
The Governor of Florida is Commander-in-Chief of the
Florida Army and Air National Guard. Over 8,000 officers
and men, fully armed and equipped with aircraft, trucks,
tanks, etc., are available at all times for emergency sup-
port to civil authorities in the protection of life and
property and the preservation of peace. Too often we
overlook this splendid organization of dedicated officers
and men until they are needed. Their training is con-
stant at all times to meet the technical and tactical
changes in the concept of defense in order to be ready
when called by their state or nation. They are consist-
ently rated as among the best trained troops in our
country and deserve our recognition and support. The
Air National Guard at Jacksonville is performing on a
seven day around-the-clock basis, the sole air defense
mission of our coast from Charleston, South Carolina to
Cape Canaveral. Their cost to the state, in terms of serv-
ice, is negligible.
CIVIL DEFENSE
During the past two years of international crisis Florid-
ians have made great progress in strengthening their non-
military defense and provisions for survival. By Executive
Order the delegation of emergency responsibilities to state
and local commissions and agencies has provided us with a
sound operational capability. The State Civil Defense plan
has been stripped of unnecessary verbiage and reduced to
hard hitting provisions for emergency action. The State
Civil Defense Council and Budget Commission released
jealously guarded emergency funds for civil defense staff
increases and for a fully equipped emergency operating
center in Tallahassee. Close cooperation with the Federal
Government has been maintained, particularly in the pro-
gram for surveying existing buildings for community shel-
ters and stocking them with food, medical and sanitary
supplies, and radiological instruments. There is continuing
progress in this area.
Legislation will be introduced covering the following
subjects:
1. Tax relief for fallout shelters.
2. Provision of shelters in public buildings.
3. Provisions for the continuity of state and local gov-
ernment.
4. Relief from public liability of owners of buildings
used for community shelters.
5. Amendment and revision of the State Civil Defense
law to strengthen its provisions and bring it up to
date with present civil defense concepts.
The budget for civil defense represents a realistic ap-
proach to the problem of providing the nonmilitary defense
for the people of Florida, and warrants your favorable
consideration.
FLORIDA DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION
The Florida Development Commission in the last two
years has undergone a major change amounting to a revo-



lution in its operations. You laid the foundation for that
change by appropriating $5 million for its promotional
program. By the exercise of sound and wise business prin-



April 2, 1963



these questionable promotions might be practiced in
Florida. To stem the possibility of bilking purchasers of
Florida land, and to protect the legitimate subdivider
from competition through unbridled deception, the Florida
Legislature in 1956 and 1959 adopted legislation which
we call the Florida Interstate Advertising Law. The ad-
vertising law was placed under the jurisdiction of the



iE OF REPRESENTATIVES 19

ciples, I am pleased to report there will be a balance in that
fund at the end of the fiscal year.
The emphasis of the Commission has been twofold:
1. To re-design its advertising efforts and its promo-
tional efforts to secure major impact in the highest
quality marketing areas.
2. To multiply the impact of its efforts by stimulating
and guiding community and industry participation
in the promotional program.
The Showcase in New York with its exposure of Florida
to thousands of visitors, the Traveling Showcase donated
by Greyhound and supported by private Florida industry,
the projected European Traveling Showcase, the Coopera-
tive Advertising Program which extends volume discount
to all communities, the Cooperative Film Program with 24
color-sound movies to be distributed, the Cooperative 50-
foot Exhibit Booth for trade and travel shows both here
and abroad, the drive-in Welcome Stations, the Industrial
Expositions, the expanded Surplus Property Program, plus
intensified promotion of tourism resulting in 13 million
tourists are illustrations of what can and should be accom-
plished when we possess both the tools and the ability to
use these tools. Their new program to bring Florida to the
forefront in foreign trade and travel and to create an
image of Florida as being an international vacationland
in itself has unlimited possibilities.
The coming of the jet age has certainly increased our
competition because it is now possible for prospective cus-
tomers to go to Europe and South America as easily as
they come to Florida-but we are timid and shortsighted
if we do not recognize that by the same token, the coming
of the jet age has added the entire world to our list of
prospective customers.
The Development Commission requested for its adver-
tising program $6.5 million, which we on the Budget Com-
mission cut back to $5 million. We did so not because we
did not feel the larger sum can be wisely spent but because
of our judgment as to the share of revenues which can be
appropriately allocated for this purpose. I suggest that you
study the budget and methods of the Commission with the
idea of implementing and supporting their activities to tap
the greatest possible potential growth and development for
Florida. It is also possible that you may wish to consider
making permanent the administrative structure of the De-
velopment Commission in the form in which it has operated
so successfully during the past two and one-half years.
LAND SALES
During the past five years the United States has seen the
birth of a new industry known by various names but typi-
fied by the subdivision and sale of real estate by means of
an installment land sales contract.
Florida's salubrious climate and tremendous economic
vitality made this State a prime location for sales of this
type. The great demand for Florida real estate is not
limited to persons with large cash reserves. Low income
families looking for a suitable investment in the future
and citizens in their golden years, looking for a retirement
haven, want Florida land. The installment sales contract
is the most feasible way for them to buy.
Unfortunately, in parts of the United States, it
appeared that the sales promotion of installment land
sales was often questionable and that perhaps some of











20 JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE

Florida Real Estate Commission and has been admin-
istered with foresight and expedition.
In the summer of 1962 articles began to appear in na-
tional publications which dramatized the abuses in the
installment land sales business. In many of these articles
attention was directed at the business in Florida. The
industry and the chambers of commerce in Florida were
quick to demand retractions of loose statements referring
to "swamp land" sales, but it was apparent that publicity
of this type has had and will have the effect of besmirch-
ing the value of Florida real estate and scandalizing the
legitimate installment land sales business in this State.
It was also apparent that where there was smoke, quite
possibly there was fire. The great desire for Florida land
and the possibility of deception caused me to appoint a
committee to examine interstate land sales.
This committee was delegated the task of scrutinizing
the sales of Florida land and making recommendations
for possible means of effectively protecting unwary pur-
chasers from being misled and, at the same time, protect-
ing a landowner's right to the free alienation of his prop-
erty with the least possible State interference.
The committee came to the conclusion that the great
majority of the land sales business in Florida is entirely
legitimate and imbued with the highest ethical stand-
ards. It was discovered, however, that there are some
instances where prospective buyers have been uninformed
as to the type of land they were buying; some instances
where the under-capitalization and the consequent shaky
financial foundation of the land developers was such
that they could not deliver on their promises; some in-
stances of deception and abuse; and some instances of
mere misunderstanding between the land sales industry
and the state regulatory agency. It was determined that
by and large, Florida is in the forefront of the states
taking farsighted action in curbing land sales abuses.
The committee found that Florida had basically a good
law that was well administered, and that Florida real
estate remains one of the best conceivable investments.
We can, however, improve further. The Committee in
its recommendations not only strengthens existing safe-
guards, but also extends those safeguards, where ap-
propriate, to intrastate land sales. I commend the entire
report to your study and favorable consideration.
MECHANICS' LIEN LAW
The Legislative Council has recommended the revision
of the Mechanics' Lien Law to eliminate certain inequities
and weaknesses which have been apparent for years. I
join in their recommendation that this much needed legis-
lation be enacted.
HOTEL AND RESTAURANT COMMISSION
The Hotel and Restaurant Commission has, like other
state agencies governed by the Little Cabinet, worked
vigorously to increase private participation and to render
services beyond those of regulation. It has established a
hospitality education program designed to provide trained
personnel for our hotels, motels and restaurants and to
encourage and assist in developing careers in the hos-
pitality field. The effectiveness of this program has been
recognized by the American Hotel Association Education
Institute. As a result, last year 1041 more persons than
the year before availed themselves of training in Florida's
technical-vocational schools, and eight junior colleges are
commencing a two-year program in supervisory training
for hotels, motels and restaurants.
The Hotel and Restaurant Commissioner has been alert



to the new trend in retirement living, cooperative and
condominium apartments. A survey of 8 thousand individ-
ual apartments has revealed that 74% were purchased
by retirees at an average cost of $23,000. Legislation is
recommended requiring a determination that the con-

struction plans of cooperative and condominium apart-
ment buildings provide reasonable and adequate safety
features. The purchaser of such an apartment has no way
of knowing the fundamental soundness of the construc-
tion except through some such procedure.
INDUSTRIAL COMMISSION
The Industrial Commission has been revitalized and
made into the instrument of service to Florida laborers
and management which it should be.
It has conducted a program called "Operation Space,"
resulting in making its employment service an active
force in job fulfillment-not only in placing more people
but also in placing them where their skills are most
needed and most useful.
It has conducted a program called "19-Safety-3" which
has stimulated more interest and activity in the field of
industrial safety than at any other time in my memory.
As a result of 1961 legislative action in appropriating
federal monies returned to Florida under the Reed Act,
new employment service office buildings have been
opened in Daytona Beach, Clearwater, Ocala, Sarasota,
and Hollywood. Others are under way in Jacksonville,
Winter Haven, and Panama City, and one is planned
for Cocoa. An additional office was opened in Miami to
serve the vast hotel and restaurant industry.
The minimum unemployment compensation tax was re-
duced from .011% of the employers payroll to .005%.
Full time deputy commissioners, authorized by the 1961
Legislature, are rendering expert service. The volume
of claims, 13,221 in 1960, is expected to increase to 20,000
in 1964, and further provision must be made to handle
them.
A committee of leaders from industry, labor, insurance,
and the medical and legal professions, after a full year's
study, has recommended, and we will submit legislation
broadening the Second Injury Fund. It will further in-
crease the service of the Commission to the Florida in-
dustrial complex.
MOTOR VEHICLE DEPARTMENT
The Motor Vehicle Department has undergone its first
work-reorganization in a decade, accomplished by the
installation of new data processing equipment which has
enabled the Department to issue 3 million license tags,
collect $55 million, and process 11/4 million title certifi-
cates without increase in personnel. Improved liaison
with dealers, financial institutions, and tax collectors, and
educational meetings throughout the state for those in-
volved in the issuance of titles have resulted in increased
speed and efficiency in the handling of the important docu-
mentary evidence processed through the Commission.
It would be extremely advantageous to Florida to enjoy
reciprocity with foreign countries and provinces, par-
ticularly those bordering the United States, with respect
to the treatment afforded motor vehicles and drivers in
interstate and international traffic. The State Department
encourages such legislation by the states and advises that
there is no existing federal legislation which would be
violated nor any treaty which would be affected by re-
ciprocity arrangements. Your favorable consideration of
legislation to accomplish this purpose is recommended.
ROAD DEPARTMENT










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSI



ports and records) were put under a Director of Right-of-
Way, and his position elevated within the organizational
structure of the Department. Construction of four inter-
state highways, and the four-year four-laning program for
primary routes (requiring property adjacent to existing
facilities) have doubled the work load of the Right-of-Way
Division. In addition the statutory requirement that right-
of-way be acquired and cleared before contracts are let
has imposed a great deal more pressure in this area. The
results have been good.
Acquisition of right-of-way in Florida is more expen-
sive in relation to the value of the land acquired than
in any other state of the union for two reasons: (1) Juries
may not consider increments to value occasioned by the
construction of new roads in assessing damages; (2) At-
torneys' fees of land owners are paid by the acquiring
government rather than by the land owner with the re-
sult that there is no incentive for a land owner to settle
before condemnation proceedings have been pursued to
the ultimate. I recommend that both of these deterrents,
which have been considered by every Legislature in my
memory, be removed.
To eliminate any possibility of misunderstanding and
unwarranted deviations from sound engineering practice,
technical manuals have been prepared to guide everyone
in the Department in the areas of construction, roadway
design, drainage, maintenance and construction.
Procedures of the fiscal division have been strengthened
and reorganized, and emphasis is being placed upon the
developing of data which make effective review and wise
planning possible.
Your attention is called to the design by the State Road
Department of a plan to provide uniform state credit
cards to be used by all employees of the Road Depart-
ment, and other employees if their directors desire, in
purchasing petroleum products. If adopted, the use of
this credit card will reduce administrative costs and per-
mit greater control of all the state's large vehicular fleet.
I recommend that the use of this proposed credit card be
reviewed by your appropriate committees to determine if
its use should be authorized or made mandatory.
The initial emphasis in the interstate program was
given to the development of municipal segments-a wise
decision-but in spite of that fact by December 1964, the
Road Department will have completed or under construc-
tion 651 miles of the 1126 mile system, and additional
mileage will have been initiated through surveys, engi-
neering, and right-of-way acquisition.
Complete four-laning of U. S. 27 or U. S. 19 from the
Georgia line to Chiefland and from St. Petersburg into
Pasco County, complete four-laning of U. S. 1 from the
Georgia Line to Homestead, complete four-laning of U. S.
301 from the Georgia line to its intersection with Inter-
state 75, and all State Road 60 from Clearwater to Lake
Wales will have been accomplished. In addition, an acceler-
ated program for four-laning U. S. 41 from Tampa to
Naples is under way.
The financial condition of the State Road Department
is sound.
I point out to you that the counties of the state have
almost $30 million on deposit with the Treasurer of the
State of Florida in their secondary funds, at a time when
collectively they are crying out both for secondary roads
and moneys for right-of-way. By December of 1964 this
sum will probably be $40 million. I recommend that serious
consideration be given to the establishment of some trustee
group of county commissioners which would have the au-



thority to utilize this large and constantly renewed fund of
money as a bank, lending to counties from the pool of
moneys such amounts as could be safely done without en-

work of the various agencies of the state charged with
enforcement, driver education, licensing, highway engi-
neering, and the ministerial functions having a bearing on
the highways, vehicles and drivers of Florida.

the county depositors as they occur.

BEVERAGE DEPARTMENT
The Beverage Department has been substantially re-
organized, resulting in greater efficiency and economy.
Revenue collections increased steadily to $91 million
annually. Arrests for beverage law violations are at a new
high, and the percentage of convictions of those charged
is greater than ever. Extensive B-girl operations have been
brought to a virtual halt, and an effective program to
eliminate the Tied House Evil has been prosecuted.
I call to your attention the fact that the appropriations
to the Beverage Department for its entire regulation, en-
forcement, and collection operation was less than the
amount provided for cigarette and alcohol wholesalers for
affixing the revenue stamps. I suggest you reduce the dis-
counts to wholesalers and increase the amounts for the
Beverage Department.
I call to your attention one special matter. At the present
time beer sold on military bases is not subject to the state
tax. I am advised that a great deal of beer is sold on these
bases and consumed off the bases. In any event, I do not
believe that our exemption of beer from taxation on mili-
tary bases substantially adds to national defense, and I
therefore recommend that this exemption be removed.
We have received in the last several weeks hundreds of
letters from the people of Florida protesting the sale of
beer in grocery stores. Grocery stores are family stores,
and while the people have decided through the repeal of
the 18th Amendment that any adult who desired to pur-
chase alcohol should have the opportunity to do so, it has
been the universal practice to shield our youth from its
use. The display of alcohol in grocery stores as a food
product undistinguished from others is inconsistent with
our ban on alcohol for minors, and in my judgment should
be ended.
TRAFFIC SAFETY
I recall, and I am sure that many among the now dimin-
ishing ranks of Legislative veterans also recall, that one
of the key recommendations in the message of Governor
Dan McCarty just ten years ago was for increased em-
phasis on highway safety. In that message Governor Mc-
Carty expressed his confidence that "through programs of
aroused citizen interest substantial progress can be made
in the future."
Ten years have passed, and in each of those years apathy
has reigned and the death toll has climbed. Last year more
than 1300 people were killed on our streets and highways,
and many times that number sustained serious injuries-
many that will last for life.
We have entered this year with new signs of citizen sup-
port for traffic safety. A vigorous new citizen group-the
Florida Traffic Safety Council--has been formed to work
with the agencies of the state and to reach our citizens
through active education programs at the state and local
levels. I am proud that this Council has emerged during
my administration. I commend it to your attention, with
the notation that it seeks not the support of the state, but
rather to support the state in its efforts to reduce slaughter
on the highways.
Vigorous support by citizens is a key element in im-

Agency Council on Traffic Safety, the Honorable Ed Lar-
son, long the Cabinet's champion of safety, and the several
agencies concerned have worked diligently during the past
biennium to develop a series of measures which will be
placed before you at this session. These measures are
designed to gear our laws and procedures to the condi-
tions which exist as a result of modern highways, new
vehicles, and the same old drivers. There are several of
these I wish especially to call to your attention:
1. Adoption of Uniform Traffic Ticket legislation. Such
action will speed the handling of traffic violations, im-
prove record keeping, and reduce by greater efficiency the
administrative costs of law enforcement agencies.
2. Adoption of Uniform Traffic Control Devices legis-
"lation. Many instances have been noted where accidents
were the direct result of driver confusion stemming from
the multitude of signs, signals, and markings which may
mean one thing in one area, but quite another elsewhere.
Adoption of this measure will provide assistance to the
motorist in a nationwide program of uniformity, and
provide greater economy in purchase and maintenance
costs.
3. Adoption of enabling legislation authorizing Flor-
ida's entrance into compacts with other states on the
subjects of vehicle safety equipment and drivers' licenses.
This program is supported by the Department of Public
Safety and evidences the belief of the Governors' Con-
ference and others that by this action problems of safety
and licensing of national concern can be effectively
handled by the states themselves.
4. A significant safety step will be the adoption of a
requirement for the installation of seat belts in all new
automobiles sold in Florida.
As important as any of the foregoing is the task of
providing the Florida Highway Patrol with sufficient
manpower to effectively perform the duties assigned it.
The Patrol does a remarkable job, not only of policing
our highways but of serving as mobile information booths,
ambassadors of good will, and friends in time of need for
our residents and visitors. We daily receive letters in my
office commending the men of the Patrol for their
courtesy and consideration-and often these letters come
from those who have been cited for a traffic law violation.
You will be asked to act upon a request to increase
the size of the Patrol from its present force of less than
450 men, to a workable strength of 600. I urge your
approval of sufficient funds to implement this increase.

CITRUS
Few industries in this State or any other state, for that
matter, possess the resiliency of our own citrus industry.
For years, the State's citrus growers, shippers, and
processors have recovered from what must be considered
as otherwise crippling blows dealt by a capricious
Mother Nature. This year that reputation for bounding
back was further enhanced by a remarkable recovery
from the worst cold wave to hit Florida in this century.
Two days of record cold during December destroyed
more oranges on Florida citrus trees than the entire State
of California produced this year. But this blow failed to
bring Florida's citrus industry to its knees. Instead,
growers, shippers, and processors pitched in to begin a
remarkable job of salvage-remarkable in the sense that
severely damaged fruit was destroyed and nothing but
quality citrus fruit and products came out of our State.

A disaster such as the citrus industry suffered suggests



many changes and adjustments. We are aware, too, that
we narrowly avoided another disaster-over production-
and must make plans so that when full production is
resumed that yield can be marketed. It is with these con-



April 2, 1963



siderations in mind that the citrus industry is sending us
a package of bills which I commend to your attention.
In my judgment the request for continuation of 10
cents per box assessment on oranges is wise and is in-
dicative of the positive approach of the industry to its
marketing problem. This tax would provide enough to
continue the normal advertising work load and at the
same time offer the opportunity to build a reserve
that would permit a full advertising program during
periods of short supply when advertising normally is
curtailed because of lack of funds. It, also, would provide
funds for additional product research.
I have worked with the State's citrus industry and its
leaders for two years now and find them a remarkably
capable group. I recommend that you give careful con-
sideration to the Legislation which the industry will
present to this session of the State Legislature.
LABOR
Since the time of your last regular meeting, Florida
has felt the adverse effects of two major strikes-Eastern
Air Lines Flight Engineers, and the members of 11
operating unions serving the Florida East Coast Railroad.
Unemployment in Florida, though consistently lower than
the national average, affects some 100,000 of our citizens.
It is impossible to calculate how many more are affected
by the companion problem of under-employment.
The rate of scientific progress we are experiencing
makes it apparent that a new factor in production-auto-
mation-will have revolutionary effects. A report from
the Road Department dated March 15, points up that by
the installation of a new 1410 computer we have cut the
time required for performing a group of eight major
operations from 140 hours to 17 hours 20 minutes.
National figures indicate that automation has already
replaced more than one million American industrial
workers and the experience of flight engineers and rail-
road employees in Florida points up that this new factor
is a real and present force in our industrial society.
We need not wait and permit automation, which carries
disruptive effects in the wake of the benefits it brings,
to catch us unprepared. I suggest that a special study
be provided by this Legislature to review the present and
anticipated employment policies of the State, and to stim-
ulate consideration by private industry of automation's
impact upon our society. We cannot and should not stop
automation. We should, and possibly can cushion its
harmful effects upon those individuals who must per-
sonally take the full force of this great change. The Flor-
ida Mediation and Conciliation Service has done consider-
able research into this area and stands ready to be of
assistance to you in any study you see fit to undertake.
MILK COMMISSION REVIEW
I have previously communicated with your President
and Speaker concerning the need for a definitive review of
the milk regulatory laws of Florida. It is desirable for
the Legislature to make an inquiry into the powers, duties,
and responsibilities of the Florida Milk Commission. The
concept of milk price control is violative of the principles
of the free enterprise system under which we live and
while there have been arguments for controls in a limited
degree, I do not feel that those arguments outweigh the
over-riding necessity for a free market in our society.
I recommend to you that your respective bodies make
an objective and impartial review of the powers and
duties of the Commission and dictate the course to be
followed in the future.
THE STATE TUBERCULOSIS BOARD
The State Tuberculosis Board has served Florida well



over a long period of time and in a period in which the
peril of tuberculosis was increasing at a critical rate.
The crisis was met, methods of detection and treatment



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES













were developed, new drugs discovered and utilized, so
that the symptoms of tuberculosis were earlier detected
and the cure of tuberculosis patients earlier effected.
The operation of the tuberculosis hospitals now carried
on under the State Tuberculosis Board has been stabilized,
and the peculiar facets of this program largely eliminated.
It would, in my opinion, be in the interest of the State
and the tuberculosis program if that operation were
placed under the Board of Commissioners of State Institu-
tions. By so doing the benefits to be derived from the per-
sonnel and purchasing program, and the supervision by
the full-time membership of the Board of Commissioners
could be shared by the Tuberculosis hospital staffs. The
very great values derived from the experienced and dedi-
cated membership of the Tuberculosis Board can be pre-
served by their retention in an advisory capacity to the
Board of Commissioners with relation to these hospitals.
REHABILITATION OF ALCOHOLICS
In 1953 the Legislature established a program for the
rehabilitation of alcoholics, the core of which is the Re-
habilitation Center in Highlands County. Because of the
uncertain and experimental nature of the program, and
because of a feeling of moral responsibility, this program
and center have been financed through a trust fund
derived from and as a percentage of the State tax on
alcohol.
This program has become well established; its justifica-
tion is self-evident; its needs are determinable. It is not
different in kind from the other hospitalization programs
that we operate. I, therefore, recommend that it be fi-
nanced from general revenue upon biennial determination
by the Legislature, and its reliance upon the tax on alco-
hol ended.
COMMITTEE ON AGING
The committee which I appointed to study the problems
of the aging in Florida, in conjunction with parallel Fed-
eral studies, has recommended that a permanent commit-
tee on aging be established. We are all keenly aware that
the advances in medicine and the attractiveness of Florida
to those who wish to spend the golden years of their life
in comfort and beauty is increasing our retired population
at least as fast as other age groups. The problems that
arise from large numbers of aged people, many of whom,
in contrast to social patterns of a few decades ago, are
uprooted from families and familiar interests, have re-
ceived relatively little attention. I recommend to you
that a committee on aging, constituted as your study may
indicate, be established, and that some appropriation for
staffing be made so that definitive studies for your future
guidance and assistance to local governments working
in this area of concern can be accomplished.
STATE BOARD OF ADMINISTRATION
Since the creation of the constitutional State Board
of Administration on January 1, 1943, to March 1, 1963,
the Board has earned for the various sinking and con-
struction funds which it administers the sum of $16,803,-
222.85. Of this amount, the sum of $7,102,756.53 has been
earned in the last two years and two months of that pe-
riod, the greater part in the last 20 months.
The 1961 Legislature authorized the investment of up
to 25% of the par value of any fund in corporate bonds
rated A or better by a nationally recognized and accepted
financial rating agency. To date, the Board has purchased
$56,359,000 of corporate bonds, all rated AA and AAA,
with an average yield of 4.51%, which compares with an
average yield on funds held prior to this program of
3.71%.



The increase in earnings has been due primarily to the
sale from the pension funds of low yielding municipal
bonds and the ability to reinvest the funds in higher
yielding corporate bonds.



23



At this session of the Legislature, the Board will seek
authority for an increase in the percentage of corporate
bonds in which the pension funds may be invested, in
an attempt to continue to improve the earnings capacity
of these funds. I urge your favorable consideration of
that request.
INTER-AMERICAN DEVELOPMENT
BANK SECURITIES
The Secretary of the Treasury of the United States has
requested that the State of Florida approve as proper
investment for commercial banks, savings banks and in-
surance companies, the obligations of the Inter-American
Development Bank. These obligations are rated AAA by
Moody and by Standard and Poor. They are eligible in-
vestments for commercial banks in 36 states, for savings
banks in 11 states, for insurance companies in 9 states,
and for trust banks in 3 states. They are considered to
be high quality corporate bonds of an international na-
ture.
I believe the request of the Secretary is worthy of your
earnest consideration because we have a responsibility
and an interest in inter-American affairs which requires
that we do everything proper to promote them.
CONDOMINIUM
The rapid development in the last few years of the
ownership by condominium of real property has created
new opportunities and new problems in development in
Florida. Florida law does not clearly contemplate such
a form of title, and there are no Florida statutes or cases
on this type of real property ownership. It is possible
that vast investments will be made in condominium in
Florida if the legal uncertainty surrounding this type of
ownership is resolved. I believe that this can be done
without raising the question of homestead exemption,
and I recommend that the judiciary committees of the
Legislature give intensive and early study to proposals
in this area.
CONCLUSION
I apologize for the length of this message-and for its
brevity. It is too long, I know, for thoughtful considera-
tion in a brief time. It is too short to begin to cover the
vast spectrum of Florida's government. It is both a report
and a petition. It is a record of progress and of problems,
and my most sincere hope is that it will lay the founda-
tion for more progress and progress' invariable compan-
ion-problems.

When we succeed without sacrifice, help us to know it is
because others have sacrificed before us. And when we
sacrifice without succeeding, may we know it is that
others might succeed after us. For this was the example
of our Lord Jesus Christ. In His Name, AMEN.

Constitution of the State of Florida set forth in Section
2 and Section 3 are agreed to and shall be submitted to the
electors of the State of Florida for approval or rejection

convene the legislature in extra session by his proclamation.
Regular sessions of the Legislature may extend to 45 days,
but no special session convened by the Governor shall exceed
20 days. The regular 45 day annual session of the Legis-
lature may, by a three-fifths vote of the membership of
each House, be extended not exceeding a total of 30 days

Provided, that the legislature may also be convened in
extra session in the following manner: When twenty per
cent of the aggregate number of members of the legislature
shall execute in writing and file with the secretary of state
their certificates that conditions warrant the convening of
the legislature into extra session, the secretary of state
shall, within seven days after receiving the requisite num-
ber of such certificates, poll the members of the legislature,
and upon the affirmative vote of three-fifths of the aggregate
number of members of both houses he shall forthwith fix
the day and hour for convening of such extra session.
Notice thereof shall be given each member by registered
mail within seven days after receiving the requisite number



of said certificates. The time for convening of said session
shall be not less than fourteen days nor more than twenty-
one days from the date of mailing said notices. In pursu-
ance of said certificates, affirmative vote of the membership
and notice, the legislature shall convene in extra session for
all purposes as if convened in regular session; provided



S



E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 3, 1963

however, that any such extra session shall be limited to
a period of thirty days. Should the secretary of state fail
to receive the requisite number of said certificates request-
ing the convening of an extra session of the legislature
within a period of sixty days after receipt of the
first of said certificates, all certificates previously filed
shall be null and void and no extra session shall be called
and said certificates shall not be used at any future time
for the convening of the legislature.

III of the Constitution of the State of Florida reading as

the house into which it is sought to be introduced; (3)
during any extraordinary session the legislature shall
transact no legislative business other than that for which
it is especially convened and such other legislative busi-
ness as the governor may call to its attention while in

.unless consent is first obtained by a two-thirds vote of
the members voting in the house wherein such business
is proposed; (4) assignment to a committee of a bill,
resolution or memorial prior to introduction and first
reading shall be subject to ratification at the time of
introduction and first reading; and, (5) during the
regular session held in odd numbered years after 1965 the

than those relating to finances, taxation, and appropria-
tions and acts implementing resolutions and memorials
passed at such session except on final passage by a two-
thirds vote of those members of each house who vote.
Except by action of a house, and except upon adjourn-
ment of a special session held after the adjournment

56 JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE

the state are, according to the Constitution of Florida,
the recognized legal political subdivisions of the state,
that they have a recognized existence as political entities
for local government purposes as well as being legal poli-
tical divisions of the state, and as legal political divisions
of the state they have a nature akin to governmental
agencies. The legislature further recognizes that the coun-
ties, as legal political units of the state, have community
characteristics and beliefs, many of which are embedded
in history, and therefore have become convenient, efficient
and natural administrative units through which the state
has organized its aid to schools, its aid to roads, its
public assistance, its public health services, its law en-
forcement, its judiciary, its tax administration, the reg-
istration of electors, the conduct of elections of state offi-
cers, and numerous other public services and functions.
The legislature rreiterates the recognized fact that the
governments of the counties of Florida, and of the munic-
ipalities within them, are highly dependent upon local
and special enactments procured by the legislative dele-
gations from the affected areas, that these measures are
of vast importance to the people of the respective coun-
ties or municipalities to which they apply, and therefore
the election of at least one member of the legislature
from each county is entirely rational. The legislature finds
no authority in the United States Constitution or the
holdings of the Supreme Court of the United States to
authorize either the Supreme Court of the United States
or an inferior federal court, bound by state law in sub-
stantive matters, to dictate the measure, manner or means
that a sovereign state of the Union must use to organize
and apportion its legislature and, to the contrary, finds
express recognition in the decisions of certain courts
that at least in certain states, including Florida, the
counties constitute an integral and historic part of the
state's governmental structure, that they have real and
substantial interests in the state's laws and a role of effec-
tive participation in state government. The legislature
therefore finds as a fact that the interests of all inhabi-
tants of the state can best be served by having one
house of its legislature representative of the legal poli-
tical units of the state, namely the counties, while the
other is apportioned by a formula related to population.
Section 2. That the amendment of Article VII of the
Constitution of the State of Florida set forth in Section
3 hereof be and the same is hereby agreed to and shall be
submitted to the electors of the State of Florida for ap-
proval or rejection at the general election in 1964.
Section 3. That Article VII of the Constitution of the
State of Florida be amended to be as set forth below,
subject to its submission to the electors as provided in
Section 2 of this resolution:
ARTICLE VII
CENSUS AND APPORTIONMENT
Section 1. Composition of the legislature.--The legisla-
ture of the State of Florida shall consist of a senate and
a house of representatives. The interests of all inhabitants
of the state are best served by having one house of the
legislature representative of registered electors and one
representative of legal political units of the state de-
scribed by geography but having common demographic
and socio-economic characteristics. Counties derive their
status as legal political subdivisions of the state from the
provisions of this constitution and are the convenient
and natural divisions of the area of the state; therefore,
the respective counties of the state are the units of gov-



ernment employed as the basis for representation in one
of said houses, which shall be the senate. Members of
the senate shall be elected for terms of two (2) years
and members of the house shall be elected for terms of
four (4) years. Of the 115 representatives, fifty-eight (58)
shall be elected at one general election and fifty-seven
(57) at the general election two (2) years thereafter. The



;I



affected Senate or Representative districts, as provided
by law, such election to be held within 120 days after the
ratification hereof. No term of office shall be reduced by
reason of this Article.
Section 5. Reapportionment.-The Legislature shall re-
apportion its representation in the House by concurrent
resolution in accordance with this Article at the 1973 reg-
ular session of the Legislature and at the regular session



E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 3, 1963

terms of members of the legislature shall expire on the
first Tuesday after the first Monday in November in each
regular election year. Members of the senate and house
of representatives shall be elected as provided by law.
Any new county created by the legislature shall be en-
titled to one senator, but shall remain in its previous
house district until the next regular reapportionment.
Section 2. Representation in the senate.-Representa-
tion in the senate of the Florida legislature shall consist
of one (1) senator from each of the several counties of
the state, and each county shall be designated a sena-
torial district.
Section 3. Representation in the house of representa-
tives.-Representation in the house of representatives
of the Florida legislature shall consist of one
hundred fifteen (115) representatives to be appor-
tioned among representative districts, such districts to be
determined as provided herein, but no county shall be
divided in creating a district. If any representative dis-
trict is composed of two or more counties, the counties
of which such district consists shall not be entirely sepa-
rated by any county belonging to another district.
A unit of representation shall be determined by dividing
the total number of registered electors in the state quali-
fied to vote in the general election held in 1962 and every
tenth year thereafter by one hundred fifteen (115).
Each county with an elector registration in excess of
the unit of representation shall be designated a represent-
ative district. The remaining counties shall be combined
into multiple county districts as follows: (a) Counties shall
be combined until their total of elector registration ex-
ceeds the unit of registration; provided that not more
than four (4) counties shall be included in a district; (b)
the remaining counties shall be combined into two or three
county districts as nearly equal in elector registration as
is mathematically possible; (c) any remaining isolated
county shall be designated as a single county district if
the county is entitled to a representative after a quotient
has been determined as provided hereinafter. If a district
is not entitled to a representative after a quotient has been
determined, the county or counties of such district shall be
included in the adjoining district or districts having the
highest fraction of a quotient, without respect to whole
numbers in the quotient.
The elector registration of each district shall be divided
by the unit of registration and the resulting quotient shall
constitute the unit to be used as a basis for apportioning
the representatives among the districts. Each district shall
receive one (1) representative for each whole number. Any
remaining representatives shall be allocated one (1) each
to a district with priority given to that district having the
highest fraction of a whole number and descending to the
districts having the next highest fractions of a whole num-
ber until all representatives are allocated.
Section 4. Period of transition; filling offices.-Until
the general election of 1974 the Legislature shall be com-
posed of those legislators elected November 4, 1964, those
holding office by virtue of election prior to November 4,
1964, and those additional legislators provided for in this
section. Upon the ratification of this Article the Legislature
shall be apportioned according to an apportionment bill
passed at the 1963 session of the Legislature, and the legis-
lative offices created by this Article which are vacant
shall be filled by and at a special election to be held in the










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSI



every ten (10) years thereafter, such reapportionment to
be based upon the number of registered electors qualified
to vote in the latest preceding general election. No Rep-
resentative's term of office shall be reduced by reason of
reapportionment in accord herewith. In the event the Leg-
islature should fail to reapportion the representation in
the House as required by this Article, the Governor shall
call the Legislature together in extraordinary session to
consider the question of reapportionment, and such extraor-
dinary session shall mandatorily be required to reapportion
the House membership before adjournment, and such ex-
traordinary session so called shall not expire until reappor-
tionment is effected, and the Legislature shall consider
no business other than reapportionment until reapportion-
ment is effected.
Section 6. State census.-The last preceding decennial
federal census shall also be the state census and shall con-
trol in all population acts and constitutional apportion-
ments, unless otherwise ordered by the Legislature.
Section 7. Severability clause.-The provisions of this
article are declared inseparable: It is the declared inten-
tion in the proposing and adopting of this article that if
any section, paragraph, sentence, clause, phrase or other
provision of this article whatsoever shall be held uncon-
stitutional or otherwise invalid by any court of competent
jurisdiction, or should it be declared inapplicable in any
case, then the entire article shall fall and that this article
would not have been adopted had such invalid provision not
been included herein.

CONCURRING:



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES











That the House of Representatives and the Senate of the
State of Florida make this public record of the life and
achievements of their former member:

IN MEMORIAL
JAMES E. CALKINS
The Honorable James E. Calkins was born in the state
of Kansas on October 6, 1877. After moving to Missouri,
Senator Calkins, as a young man, came to Jacksonville,
Florida, with his family. He affiliated himself as a book-
keeper with a large lumber firm, thereby acquiring suf-
ficient finances to enter the University of Georgia, at
Athens, Georgia, where he graduated in law. He entered
law practice alone in Fernandina, Florida, and in a short
while served as mayor of that city.

A short time thereafter, Senator Calkins represented
Nassau county in the Florida House of Representatives in
the sessions of 1907 and 1909. At the expiration of that
term of office, Senator Calkins was elected to the Florida
Senate, representing District 16, and served as a member
of that body from 1911 to 1925. During that time he was
President Pro Tempore in 1915, President of the Senate
in 1919, and he was the revisor of the 1920 Revised Gen-
eral Statutes. During this time he was also Chief Counsel
for the Railroad Commission of Florida.
Finishing his twenty years of dedicated public service
to the state that he loved, he retired to private law prac-
tice, joining the law firm of Loftin, Stokes and Calkins in
Miami. Ever anxious to serve his state, he was President
of the Dade County Bar Association in 1930-1931. Retiring
from the law firm, he remained at his home in Coral Gables
until his death on January 26, 1963, at the venerable age
of 85 years.
Senator Calkins' death saddened his many friends, both
in and out of the Legislature, and as a final measure of
respect,
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we, the Legisla-
ture of the State of Florida, by means of this concurrent
resolution, express our sorrow at the death of James E.
Calkins, and humbly express our appreciation for the con-
tributions he made to both his state and country, and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this reso-
lution be delivered to the family of James E. Calkins and
copies be spread upon the journals of the House and Sen-
ate and made a permanent part of the record of this Legis-
lature.
-and respectfully requests the concurrence of the House
therein.
Very respectfully,
ROBT. W. DAVIS
Secretary of the Senate
And Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 41, contained
in the above message, was read the first time in full.

al Amendments during the first thirty (30) calendar days

legislative day at the desk designated therefore by the
office of the Chief Clerk. These reports must be accom-
panied by the original bill, joint resolution, resolution or
memorial, and the titles and numbers thereof shall be
entered on the Calendar (at the appropriate reading)
and on the Journal, together with the statement that the
same was reported favorably by the committee of refer-
ence. Each report by a committee must set forth the
identifying number of the measure, the exact title of the
measure, the name and county of the introducer, or intro-
ducers, and, if amendments are proposed by the commit-
tee, these shall be numbered serially and typewritten in
full and attached to the measure. All unfavorable reports

Chairman), of committees on bills, joint resolutions,
resolutions and memorials shall be returned to the Chief

measures). The substitute measure must be accompa-
nied by the original measure referred to the commit-
tee and returned to the Chief Clerk in the same manner
as the favorable reporting of any other measure. When
the original measure is reached upon the Calendar, the
substitute shall be read a first time by title. The motion
then shall be (by the Chairman or a member of the com-
mittee offering the substitute) to take up the substitute
in the place of the original. At the moment that the House
agrees by majority vote to take up the substitute, then
the original shall be regarded as automatically tabled
in the same manner as a measure unfavorably reported.

duct in the galleries or lobby, have power to cause same
to be cleared. Bills committed to a Committee of the
Whole House shall be read and debated, or amended,
by clauses or sections, leaving the title or preamble to
be last considered. The body of said bill shall not be
interlined or defaced, but all amendments denoting the
page and line shall be entered on separate paper by the
Chief Clerk, who shall be Clerk of the Committee of
the Whole House, as the same shall be agreed to by the
Committee, and so reported to the House. After report,
the bill or other matter may be again debated and shall
be subject to be again amended by clauses or sections.
The quorum for a Committee of the Whole House shall
be the same as for the House, and when the Committee
of the Whole House shall rise, the roll shall be called to
ascertain the presence of a quorum of the House. No bill
or resolution may be considered by the Committee of
the Whole House except by a two-thirds vote unless
same has first been considered by the appropriate stand-
ing Committee of the House. In the event the appropriate
standing Committee should report such bill or resolution
unfavorably, then no such bill or resolution shall receive
a favorable report of the Committee of the Whole House
except by a two-thirds vote of the Committee of the
Whole House. If a bill or resolution has been reported
favorably by the appropriate Committee a majority of
the members of the Committee of the Whole House may
report the bill favorably.

6.13-The receiving of reports of committees of con-
ference shall always be in order, except
Committees when the House is voting on any propo-
sition. After House conferees on any bill
or resolution in conference between the House and Sen-
ate shall have been appointed for seven (7) calendar days
and shall have failed to make a report, it is hereby de-
clared to be a motion of the highest privilege to move
to discharge said House conferees and to appoint new
conferees, or to instruct said House conferees; and, fur-
ther, during the last six (6) calendar days allowed under
the Constitution for any regular session, it shall be a
privileged motion to move to discharge, appoint, or in-
struct House conferees after House conferees shall have
been appointed thirty six (36) hours without having made
a report. There shall accompany every conference report
a statement sufficiently explicit to inform the House
what effect such amendments or propositions will have
upon the measures to which they relate. Upon presenta-
tion of the report of a conference committee, the vote
first shall be whether the report shall be considered at
that moment and second upon the acceptance or rejection
thereof as an entirety. The report or reports of a confer-
ence committee must be acted upon as a whole, being
agreed to or disagreed to as an entirety. When any bill
or joint resolution is referred to a conference committee
and the conferees on the part of the House report in-
ability to agree, no action of the House taken prior to
such reference to a conference committee shall preclude
further action on said measure as the House may deter-
mine.



6.14-Witnesses subpoenaed to appear before the House



April 4, 1963



or its committees shall be paid as follows:
Witnesses for each day a witness shall attend, the
sum of seven ($7.00) dollars; for each

moned at the place of hearing.

H. R. NO. 194-A HOUSE RESOLUTION PROVIDING
FOR THE APPOINTMENT OF A SELECT COMMIT-
TEE TO STUDY THE LAWS AND PRACTICES IN-
VOLVED IN INCURRING BONDED INDEBTEDNESS
IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA AND REQUIRING SAID
COMMITTEE TO MAKE ITS REPORT AND FILE REC-
OMMENDATIONS ON OR BEFORE MAY 15, 1963.
WHEREAS, the Constitution of the State of Florida
contains a clear prohibition against State indebtedness
except in certain limited cases as provided therein, and
WHEREAS, historically the State of Florida has func-
tioned under the terms of the above constitutional pro-
hibition and limitation and has progressed and pros-
pered as a result of the "pay as you go" philosophy
expressed therein, and
WHEREAS, there has been a gradual erosion of this
constitutional mandate through the use of separate gov-
ernmental agencies empowered to issue and sell revenue
certificates or revenue bonds which do not legally pledge
the full credit of the State but which nevertheless impose
a moral obligation upon the State to pay those debts, and
WHEREAS, in recent years this practice has become
widespread and the amounts borrowed have become so
large that it can no longer be said that Florida's State
government is on a cash basis, and



WHEREAS, in his message to the 1963 Legislature, his
Excellency, C. Farris Bryant, Governor of the State of
Florida, has asked the Legislature to authorize the bor-
rowing of an additional $125,000,000 and



SI



of Florida are urged to give this committee their full
cooperation and assistance.

E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 5, 1963

WHEREAS, other projects, such as the refinancing of
the Jacksonville Expressway and the construction of toll
roads on the west coast of the State are being considered
by various agencies and which projects, taken together,
involve hundreds of millions of dollars, and
WHEREAS, through the process of an amendment to
the Constitution containing specific guidelines for the
protection of the public interest and approved by the
people in a referendum, and authorizing the pledging of
certain tax revenue for public school construction, the
State Board of Education has borrowed funds in com-
petitive bidding for net interest rates as low as 2-3/8%
and never more than 4%, while, on the other hand, the
refinancing of the turnpike, without specific constitu-
tional authorization, and by negotiated sale, involved
net interest costs of almost 5%, and
WHEREAS, in the process of refunding other revenue
certificates previously sold by the Florida Turnpike Au-
thority, the authority paid, out of public funds, millions
of dollars in premiums to the holders of the then out-
standing bonds, which situation should never be repeated
except under circumstances where there is no alternative,
and
WHEREAS, a recent private investigation of the han-
dling of revenue and bond proceeds which disclosed situ-
ations involving abuses of public responsibility, negli-
gence, waste, extravagance and apparent lack of concern
for the public interest, have tended to shake the public
confidence in the integrity of the State and its agencies,
and
WHEREAS, these disclosures are of such serious
nature as to warrant and demand that the legislative
arm of the State government determine the authenticity
of the charges and make whatever recommendations for
changes in the law as are found necessary to prevent a
recurrence of this situation, and
WHEREAS, the practice that is developing under pres-
ent laws permits State agencies, with limited knowledge
of bonding practices and limited experience and skill in
negotiations, to market bonds without the issues being
submitted to competitive bidding and without any State-
wide coordination and control, and
WHEREAS, there appears to be a definite need for
laws designed to regulate and control the issuance of
these instruments of indebtedness in order to protect the
public interest, NOW THEREFORE,
Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
Section 1. That the Speaker of the House forthwith
name a select committee consisting of not less than three
(3) nor more than five (5) members for the purpose of
making an inquiry into the present system of bonding
by the various State agencies.
Section 2. That such select committee make a report
of its findings together with its recommendations to the
House of Representatives not later than May 15, 1963.
Section 3. It is the sense of the House of Representa-
tives that this committee shall make a thorough inquiry
into all aspects of State laws .and practices involved in
the process of incurring bonded indebtedness. To this
end, this House of Representatives urges this commit-
tee to fully utilize the knowledge, experience and abili-
ties of accountants, attorneys, bankers, brokers, financial
advisors and others who have such knowledge and ex-
perience. All such persons within and without the State
