April 2, 1974









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



And, as you and I were making the necessary preparations,
a reporter asked whether this election-year session will be a
test of my leadership or yours.
It may be a bit of each-but it is much more than that . .
we each have much more to prove in these 60 days than our own
individual ability to lead.
For our democratic system of government is on trial today,
not only in our nation's capital, but throughout the land. Our
people are looking for answers, not only from the White House
but also from the Congress and the statehouses of America.
The real test of this session of the Florida Legislature is
how this statehouse . how each of us . responds to the
doubt and uncertainty that exist among our people.
The real test is whether we can help restore the faith of the
people in their government, and in themselves as well.
Let no one underestimate the difficulty of that task in this
day of Watergate, rising prices, and dwindling resources.
But let no one underestimate the capabilities of Florida
government either.
We cannot solve national problems. But we can solve our
own problems and, hopefully, help point the way for others to
follow.
Florida has been doing just that in these past few years.
With the full support of our citizens, we have made our
tax and educational systems more equitable, the appointment
and election of our judges less political, and our state a na-
tional pacesetter in environmental planning and protection.
We have strengthened our election and consumer laws, and
we've placed Florida on as sound a financial footing as any
state in the nation. The strength of our position is demonstrated
in the first annual economic report that I delivered to you
today.
These are but a few of the achievements, and there is still
much to be done in this session.

TAX RELIEF

The work of tax reform is never done and one area in which
we've hardly begun is that of property taxes.
It is now time to ease the burden on these taxpayers and
give further relief to our older citizens. My recommendations
for a two-mill rollback of school taxes, extension of the $10,000
homestead exemption for those over 65, and exemption of the
first $20,000 of intangibles are included in my proposed budget
for fiscal 1974-75.
In addition, I am asking you today to also grant the $10,000
homestead exemption to those who are totally and permanently
disabled. For both the elderly and the disabled, this exemption
on school, city and county taxes would take effect after they
have resided in our state for five years.
With $114-niillion in replacement revenue and an additional
$102-million that I am also recommending for schools, we will
finally complete our long march toward the goal of an equal
educational opportunity for every child, regardless of where
he or she may live.
Alongside that goal, we have long sought to provide our
people with meaningful property tax relief. Two years ago,
we capped all property taxes at ten mills and earmarked funds



from our revitalized state tax system for revenue sharing
with county and city governments.



This was a major victory. But, with the sharp rise of prop-
erty values throughout Florida, it is obvious that we must
now do more to ease the ad valorem burden.
So I ask you to statutorily limit school taxes to eight mills.
As a supplementary step, I ask you to place a Constitutional
Amendment on the November ballot to give Florida citizens
the opportunity to either make the rollback permanent or allow
future legislatures to make adjustments within the present
Constitutional limit of ten mills. In this way, the people can
express themselves on the future direction of our school
financing and help determine the role that property taxes will
play.
I recognize that some of you may wish to seek other ways
to provide property tax relief. I stand ready to consider any
fair approach to the problem.
The important thing, my friends, is that we now grant
the relief that we've so long promised.
With repeal of consumer taxes on household utilities and
apartment rentals behind us, one of the most regressive taxes
remaining in our system is the municipal utility tax.
It remains my hope that we can work toward elimination of
this municipal tax, though such reform is admittedly com-
plicated by local borrowing programs based on the existing
tax revenue. In the meantime, however, let us at least require
that local governments either apply the tax evenly against
all utility customers or at a graduated rate of increase as con-
sumption increases.
Too many cities are doing just the opposite, favoring large
users over the average consumer and, in the process, encourag-
ing energy consumption.
In addition, let us take action to protect consumers from the
double burden of this tax when it is applied not only to the
basic utility bill but to the escalating fuel costs resulting from
energy shortages. In some instances, these fuel adjustment
charges have actually been greater than the basic bill, and to
ask the consumer to pay a tax on this extra charge is patently
unfair.

ENERGY

If nothing else, the energy shortages have taught us that
our nation's resources are limited and a change in America's
wasteful lifestyle is not only desirable, but absolutely neces-
sary.
Part of the solution rests with our citizens themselves. Their
quick response to conservation measures is already helping
to brighten the once-gloomy prospects for this spring and
summer.

But, even with the Arab oil embargo lifted, the energy crisis
is not over. Shortages are going to be a fact of life in this
decade of the 70's.
We must continue to look to Federal energy officials in
Washington for fair distribution of fuel supplies, and we must
never hesitate to both speak and act if Florida doesn't get its
fair share.
This we have done, with positive results. And this we shall
continue to do, whenever necessary.
But we must also be prepared to act at the State level.



Accordingly, I am asking you to adequately fund and em-
power our State Office of Petroleum Allocation and Energy



3



April 2, 1974









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Conservation to help deal with these problems. Whether vol-
untarily or by subpoena, all pertinent information must be
made available to this office if we are to fully represent the
interests of our citizens during this critical period.
While I personally seek no further powers, I think we must
recognize the threat that a severe energy shortage poses for
Floridians, just as we recognize the dangers of a hurricane
or a riot. So I ask you to review existing emergency powers
for times of natural disasters and civil disorders and, with
appropriate guidelines, extend their coverage to critical energy
shortages.
Rather than extend broad rule-making authority to the
executive branch, I hope your guidelines will specify where
and how energy consumption is to be curtailed during such
emergencies, and under what conditions an emergency may be
declared.
The heaviest burden of the energy crisis falls on the con-
sumer who ultimately becomes the catch-basin for all the dis-
ruptions, who suffers the shortages and watches the prices
go up and purchasing power go down.
Government must be sensitive and responsive to these frus-
trations. And in one area of hardship that promises to get
even worse, Florida government has the opportunity to show
its responsiveness and concern for the beleaguered consumer.

I can think of no better time to renew our efforts to estab-
lish an independent public advocate for all utility rate hear-
ings before the public service commission.

It matters not so much where we place the public advocate,
but that we create this office, and adequately staff it to
provide the consumer with the same expert representation en-
joyed by the utility company.

As we face the prospects of still higher rates this summer,
it is in the interest not only of consumers but also of the
Public Service Commission and the utility companies to pro-
vide the true adversary proceedings necessary to gain public
confidence in the rate-making process.

In another energy area, it is in the best interest of our
school children that Florida be returned to Standard Time
next fall.

We will never know for certain what caused each of the trag-
ic accidents this past winter. But we can make certain that
pre-dawn darkness is not the cause of a school child's death
next winter.

So let us ask the congress to repeal winter Daylight Saving
Time.

And, in case congress should fail to act, let us exercise the
exemption provided in the federal law. By this action, we
can insure that our citizens will be able to enjoy the benefits
of Daylight Saving Time this summer, Standard Time in most
of the state next winter, and Daylight Saving Time again
next summer.

TRANSPORTATION

While there has been no real evidence that winter daylight
saving time conserves energy in this state, there can be no
doubt that imaginative mass transit programs will result in con-
siderable savings over the long run. They will also help pro-



vide a modern and balanced system of transportation for our
residents and visitors alike.



In my inaugural address, I promised a high priority for mass
transportation. And, with your help in the past three years,
we have more than doubled our effort in this area.

This year I am asking you to more than triple our 1970-71
expenditures and appropriate nearly $64-million-including
$12.2-million from our surplus-for mass transit programs and
studies. Many of these improvements can be operative in the
near future, including a turbo-train between Orlando and
Miami and assistance to local communities for public bus and
car-pool projects.

In fact, I request that you make a special appropriation as
soon as possible so we can immediately begin development of
the turbo-train demonstration project in cooperation with Am-
trak.


ENVIRONMENT

In keeping with last year's conservative approach to our
budget surplus, I am recommending ,that we earmark $120-
million of this year's anticipated surplus for the purchase of
environmentally-endangered lands and recreation areas. This
will speed our $240-million land acquisition program and avoid
the necessity of further borrowing at a time of particularly
high interest rates.

The wisdom of such action is evident in the more than $65-
million in interest charges that the first $120-million bond
issue will cost us over the next 20 years. It would be fiscally
imprudent to issue the full $240-million in general obligation
bonds at a time when we have a surplus in our State treasury.

Let me interject here that it is wrong to view the budgetary
growth of the last few years as a sign of unjustified spending
increases for state operations. On the contrary, the increased
state revenues realized through tax reform and a prosperous
economy have largely enabled us to build up our reserves, to
grant substantial increases in state aid to schools and local
government and thereby ease the burden that otherwise would
have fallen more heavily on local taxpayers, to speed up and
insure adequate federal financing of our interstate highway
program and, hopefully this year, to invest in much-needed
environmental and recreational lands.

Local governments will receive more than half of the gen-
eral revenue budget I am recommending, and all of our Federal
Revenue Sharing funds on the state level-a total of $1.37-
billion.

My budget proposals also include proper funding of the
landmark environmental legislation we enacted two years ago.
It is time to back up the great promise of these land and water
management laws with the necessary dollars to make them
work.

And it is time to supplement our state planning laws with
requirements and assistance for comprehensive local planning,
and with adequate protection of our unique wetlands and the
right of eminent domain for our environmental land acquisition
program.

At the end of world war II, 2 million people lived in
Florida. Since then, our population has more than tripled to
almost eight million today.



And some are predicting that it will double or triple again
by the turn of the century.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



In the face of such predictions, we must recognize our re-
sponsibility to preserve the natural wonders of Florida today
if our children are to enjoy them tomorrow.
So let us adopt a sensible and balanced policy to guide and
control our growth before it is too late.

HUMAN NEEDS
Let us also develop an appropriate role for the State, in
partnership with Federal and local governments and private
enterprise, in meeting Florida's enormous housing needs. And
let's provide needed protection for the purchasers of con-
dominiums and mobile homes.
Let us not default to the federal government in meeting
the needs of our working people injured on the job, nor to
the courts' in providing the necessary guidelines for collective
bargaining by public employees, as well as protection for the
public against strikes by its employees.
And let us not miss the opportunity to be among the 38
states needed to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment to our
United Stateg Constitution.
Thirty-three states have said that we should end discrimina-
tion against women, and the Amendment enjoys bipartisan
support throughout our State and Nation.
I strongly urge you to approve it.
Most of the subjects I've touched upon here today have
been dealt with in greater detail in the series of messages
and reports which have already reached your desks. I have been
working with a task force on health and rehabilitative serv-
ices, and my recommendations in these vital areas, including
corrections and welfare reform and health care, will be de-
livered to you shortly.

ETHICS

In closing, I want to dwell a moment on the subject of
one of those earlier messages . the one which I believe
deserves absolute top priority in this session.
For, as I have indicated at the start, you are meeting at
a most critical time in the proud history of this great nation.
The people of America are disillusioned with our political
processes-and who can blame them?
Their uncertainty and skepticism extend in many different
and often conflicting directions, and it is difficult to find
general agreement on anything.
But let there be no doubt that the people are united on one
thing . they're united in the search for public officials
who will serve their interests as opposed to any particular
special interest.
They're united in the search for political leaders who are
willing to demonstrate anew their commitment to good gov-
ernment, and to earn again the faith of the people.
In short, they're united in the search for leaders who be-
lieve, as Thomas Jefferson said two centuries ago, that "The
whole of government consists in the art of being honest."
I can think of no better way for us to practice that art
today than to require all elected officials, candidates and
major appointees to publicly disclose their sources of income
and other financial interests.



I recognize that many honest and good people feel that fi-
nancial disclosure is an invasion of their privacy.



And it is.
I do not question that it is an extraordinary thing to do-
but to restore the people's confidence in their government is
going to require extraordinary steps.
We need only to listen to the candidates as they announce
for office in Florida today to realize how far we have already
come on this issue. Almost routinely, they are promising or
making disclosure.
I'm proud of this progress.
And I'm proud of this Legislature. With the creation of the
Florida Elections Commission, you have already demonstrated
your concern for clean elections and good government.
Moreover, you are now addressing the question of financial
disclosure with a sense of seriousness and purpose that fully
recognizes today's overriding need to win the public trust.
As you know, I have felt, and I still strongly believe, that
the easiest and most effective way to achieve this is to re-
quire full and public disclosure of income tax returns and
statements of net worth. Surely our people would have greater
confidence in a disclosure process that is backed by the in-
vestigative abilities of the internal revenue service and which
would annually reveal the extent as well as the source of any
financial gains.

I recognize, of course, that there is no single "right" answer.
And I can see merit in a detailed report that would list the
source of all private interests-and the percentage of income
from the various sources-without necessarily revealing the sum
of one's net worth. Certainly the various plans can be com-
bined into an effective vehicle of disclosure.
The important thing is not so much the vehicle, but that the
disclosure be meaningful, and that it be public.
Let us make no mistake about it, the public is demanding
no less in this election year.
So I am urging you ... in the strongest way I know how ...
to pass this legislation. And I hope you will supplement public
disclosure with the creation of an independent ethics commission,
and the strengthening of existing laws governing conflicts of
interest, gifts, and blind trusts dealing with government.
I also join with our Supreme Court in favoring a Constitution-
al Amendment which would enable the Judicial Qualifications
Commission to investigate a judge's misconduct whenever it
occurred, as long as it relates to his or her fitness to continue
in office. At the same time, I hope you will consider amending
the Judicial Article to allow the Commission to set its own rules
and open its proceedings when warranted.
With these steps, Florida can once again lead the way .
and help restore the politics of honor in our land.
I recognize that the programs you are considering in this
session are difficult ones. And I know that some would caution
that an election year is no time to "rock the boat."
I hope you will join me in setting aside the cliches and
rhetoric of the season.
In the words of Oliver Wendell Holmes:
"I find the great thing in this world is not so much where
we stand, as in what direction we are moving . we must
sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it-but
we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor."



Thank you.

Governor's Supplementary Message on Budget and Taxation
Honorable Members of the Legislature:
Transmitted herewith, pursuant to law, are my recommenda-
tions for a budget to meet our responsibilities in a time of un-
certainty and to provide continuing tax relief for the citizens
of the State.
Three years ago, when I took office, Florida was facing finan-
cial problems. Funds had been spent faster than they had been
received and the reserves in the Working Capital Fund had to
be depleted to assure sufficient funds to finance operations for
the remainder of the fiscal year. Through prudent, conservative
fiscal policies we have built the Working Capital Fund to a
reasonable level and by the end of this fiscal year this fund
should reach $105 million. Although Florida is in a financial
position which compares favorably with that of other states,
we must be prepared to adjust to conditions which may be
created by the energy crisis. In order to give State government
the flexibility to operate in the months ahead, I am asking the
Legislature to provide adequate amounts from the Working
Capital Fund to meet deficiencies and emergencies.
In addition to the reserves in the Working Capital Fund,
it is reassuring to note that a cash surplus of $225 million is
expected in the general fund at the end of the current fiscal
year. This does not include $75.2 million in federal revenue
sharing funds which I am recommending for school construc-
tion.
It is necessary to adopt a fiscally sound plan for the utiliza-
tion of these surplus funds in order to avoid recurring commit-
ments which would create financial problems in the future.
In keeping with this practical approach, I have recommended
that continuing expenses be financed from anticipated revenues
and that surplus funds be allocated to worthwhile, nonrecur-
ring projects.
Without slowing our efforts to protect our environment by
purchasing endangered areas, we can pledge $120 million of the
surplus to complete the acquisitions authorized in the 1972 bond
referendum. I am recommending that these funds be appropri-
ated for this purpose and that the authorization for the addi-
tional bonds be repealed. I also am recommending use of an
addition1 $13.7 million for the cash purchase of valuable en-
vironmental lands in the Green Swamp.
Last year, we established a more equitable method of funding
our public school system. This new funding formula allowed
us to discard the obsolete Minimum Foundation Program and
to take a significant step toward the long-sought goal of
equalizing educational opportunity for children in all parts of
the State.
The move toward equalization has required the State to put
additional amounts of money into the financing of our school
system. In many cases, however, it has also resulted in increased
requirements from the counties. The burden on property taxes
has grown to the point where relief must be provided and the
only way we can have ad valorem tax relief is to send more
State dollars to the school boards to replace funds that otherwise
would have to be raised locally. The educational financing
plan which I am recommending will not only allow us to move to
full equalization, but also provide for property tax relief. It
will limit school property taxes to eight mills and it will send
$114 million to the county school boards to replace local property
tax dollars.
I am asking the Legislature to amend current law to imple-



ment the eight-mill limitation on school taxes in the 1974-75
fiscal year and I will propose a constitutional amendment to



make this two-mill reduction permanent. The total educational
financing program which I am recommending for public schools
will require an increase of $216 million including the $114
million for property tax relief and $102 million in new funds for
growth, improvements, and equalization.

In addition to the property tax relief in the educational pro-
gram I am again asking the Legislature to approve two other tax
reform measures which I proposed last year. I am recommending
that the additional $5,000 homestead exemption on school taxes
also be provided on city and county property taxes for persons
65 years of age or older who have lived in Florida for five years
or more. And, in order to assure that the intangibles tax does
not discourage those who are saving for the future or become
a burden on retired persons living on the returns from their in-
vestments, I am recommending an exemption on the first $20,000
of stocks, bonds, and other intangible assets exclusive of mort-
gages. Since no tax must be paid on amounts less than $5,000,
this would mean that individuals with less than $25,000 of
these securities would not have to file an intangibles tax
return.

Funds are also recommended to assist local governments in
purchasing ambulances and other equipment needed for emer-
gency medical services, to implement the Water Resources Act
for the conservation and protection of the water supplies of the
State, to improve State participation in programs where costs
are shared with local governments, and to initiate demonstra-
tion projects to prove the practical application of mass trans-
portation methods.

Generally, these recommendations require increased productiv-
ity and efficiency in all State programs to help offset increases
necessary for increased workloads and rising costs. Funds
provided to State agencies for utilities were held at current
levels to encourage conservation, and amounts provided for
travel were reduced by 10 percent to force program managers
to eliminate trips which are not absolutely essential.

Subject to these restrictions, improvements were provided for
children's medical services, rehabilitation and other service
programs financed by the State. Increased funds also were
recommended to complete the take-over from local governments
of youth detention services. For public assistance, however, these
recommendations should be considered tentative. I have ap-
pointed a task force to review this entire area and to recommend
proposals to improve the delivery of assistance programs. At
my instruction, these proposals will include a Welfare Fraud
Unit to assure that every person who is abusing the public
trust is discovered and prosecuted. Any adjustments which are
required will be presented as soon as the Task Force report
is completed.

The budget which I am recommending to you provides for a
total appropriation of $2.587 billion from anticipated State
revenues, surplus funds, and federal revenue sharing. Most of
this amount, and most of the increases provided in these recom-
mendations, would go to local governments for the operation
of regular programs, for tax relief, and for continuation of
our catch-up school construction program. A total of $1.372
billion is recommended for these purposes, exclusive of the
increased funds which will be provided separately under the
State revenue sharing program. I also am recommending
$995.6 million for State operations and $87.9 million for con-
struction or improvement of institutional buildings or other
needed facilities.



In view of the uncertainties created by the energy crisis, we
are maintaining a close watch on information pertaining to

economic conditions in the State and Nation and we will
be prepared to review this information with the Legislature prior
to the time for final action on these recommendations.

Governor's Supplementary Message on Ethics

Honorable Members of the Legislature:
Almost one year ago on April 3, 1973, I stated in my opening
address to the Joint Session that if this particular Legislature
is destined to perform any particular task, that task must be
to demonstrate anew our commitment to good government and
to earn once again the faith of the people by enacting a program
of ethics in government that is second to none in its vision,
courage and, most importantly, in its performance. Because
it is the key to enforcement against conflicts of interests, I
urged you to require full public financial disclosure of all
elected officials, all candidates for public office, and all major
appointed officials in Florida, including copies of income tax
returns and statements of net worth.
I fully appreciate the difficulty, as well as the importance,
of meaningful legislative action and, despite significant progress
in related areas such as election law reform, the 1973 session
adjourned without enacting these requirements for public finan-
cial disclosure. Each of us who has lived through the events of
this past year knows that, for the welfare of our very system
of government itself, action simply cannot be further delayed.
As you know, I have required all my major appointees for
the last three years to file with me a copy of their net worth
statement along with their annual income tax return. At the
same time, I have publicly filed annually with the Secretary of
State my income tax return and statement of net worth.
Full public financial disclosure should also be required of
major appointed officials. The Legislature should delineate the
scope of this requirement based primarily on the responsibilities
and powers of the official. Certainly the heads of all depart-
ments and divisions of state government should be included.
It would be my recommendation that required information for
state officials be filed with the Secretary of State as public
records open to public inspection. Likewise, local candidates
and officials would file with the clerks of circuit courts in their
respective areas.
I am confident that the Legislature, building particularly on
the work of the House Select Committee on Standards and Con-
duct, can and will enact a strong financial disclosure law. No
single piece of legislation is more important in 1974.
I also strongly support and encourage the work of the Legis-
lature in other related areas. The revision of Chapter 112
establishing an independent ethics commission empowered to
receive and investigate complaints and to determine violations
of standards of conduct would be an important improvement in
Florida government. The commission should also provide ad-
visory opinions on conduct and thus build a body of guiding
policy. Clearly this commission should be a supplement rather
than a substitute for public financial disclosure.
Florida law governing conflict of interests should clearly
prohibit elected public officials from using their office or its
influence to effect the affairs of their clients or private business



interests. In addition, the Florida Statutes relating to gifts
should be strengthened and clarified, and the taking of gifts



by all public employees from persons or entities regulated by or
doing business with the agency employing them should be ex-
pressly prohibited.
Finally, I endorse and urge the passage of legislation which
would require trusts, fictitious name enterprises and all corpo-
rations except those publicly held to disclose their beneficiaries,
parties in interest and shareholders, respectively, if they nego-
tiate or execute contracts with state or local government in
Florida.
Florida has established a national reputation for open, effec-
tive, good government. The measures I have recommended will
enhance that reputation and will earn once again the faith
of the citizens we serve.
With kind regards,
Sincerely,
Reubin Askew
Governor

Governor's Supplementary Message on Housing Goals

Honorable Members of the Legislature:
This is the second annual report on State housing goals for
the State of Florida as required by Chapter 420, Florida Stat-
utes. Included also is a separate special report on mobile homes,
a particularly important aspect of Florida's housing situation.
The housing goals report outlines the current housing condi-
tions in the State and projects housing needs through 1985,
with emphasis upon the needs of low and moderate income
households. It is now estimated that nearly two million new
and rehabilitated units will need to be added to the State's
housing inventory in order to keep pace with population growth
and to replace existing substandard units.

The housing industry is capable of meeting this need on an
aggregate basis, but clearly not at a price that many families
can afford. Accordingly, the greatest housing challenge facing
the State and the nation is that of affordability. In Florida,
743,000 households pay more than one-fourth of their incomes
for housing, and over one-half million pay in excess of one-
third of their incomes for shelter. Of those families who pay
over one-third of their incomes for housing, seventy-one percent
have incomes of less than $4,000 per year. These statistics do
not even include households with family incomes of $12,000 or
more annually or those with homes valued in excess of $25,000
since it is assumed that in these instances an element of choice
is involved.

As the disparity between family income and the cost of
housing increases, a larger proportion of the State's households
will be unable to find adequate housing at prices they can
afford to pay. The challenge to private industry and government
is great.

I am convinced that an effective approach to the housing
problem requires a working partnership between federal, State
and local government and the private sector. Clearly State gov-
ernment does not have the resources to tackle the problem alone
National economic trends exert a dominant influence on the
State's housing market and upon the personal incomes of
families. The housing needs of low and low-moderate income
families simply cannot be met without the housing subsidies
which only the federal government can provide. The moratorium
imposed by the President on January 15, 1973, on the basic rent
and mortgage supplement programs has set back production of



affordable housing, particularly in the urban areas which the
impounded programs primarily serve. The existing federal pro.

grams should be reinstated or new, improved programs estab-
lished as soon as possible if we are to more realistically address
ourselves to the very pressing housing needs in the urban areas
of our State.
In recent years, the Legislature has required the annual sub-
mission of a statement of housing goals and has authorized the
establishment of a private housing development corporation.
However, Florida has yet to adequately exercise its potential
and appropriate State housing responsibilities. Therefore, I am
recommending that the Legislature take additional budgetary
and legislative actions to help meet the housing needs of Florida
citizens.
While we are limited presently in our ability to respond to
our serious urban housing needs because of lack of active fed-
eral funding programs, our potential for meeting these needs
in our rural areas is greater. Federal housing programs are
still available from the Farmers Home Administration of the
U. S. Department of Agriculture for assistance to these rural
areas. In rural Florida housing problems are also severe. Per
capital income is less than $2,000 and many families live in
substandard housing. Nevertheless, there is a low utilization of
available housing assistance from the Farmers Home Admini-
stration.

It is incumbent upon Florida to maximize utilization of avail-
able programs. Therefore, I am recommending funding and
positions to augment staff of the Farmers Home Administration
in Florida to provide outreach assistance for low income families
and to expedite processing of applications. In addition, I am
recommending legislation and funding to establish a revolving
land acquisition and site development fund of $5 million for the
purpose of making funds available to rural housing authorities
and local governments to acquire and develop suitable sites for
housing assisted by the Farmers Home Administration. These
proposals have been developed in close cooperation with the
Farmers Home Administration.

Many areas of the State are without local housing agencies.
Existing agencies tend to be small, lacking the resources to
adequately serve existing projects and provide needed services
to tenants. Many agencies lack operating and management
effectiveness. Funding is requested for training programs and a
pilot grant-in-aid assistance program aimed at strengthening
and improving local housing agencies and to encourage the
establishment of housing agencies where needed.

Diversity, inadequacy, and lack of building codes have been
identified as a major impediment to housing in Florida. Over-
stringent construction requirements and the multiplicity of
code jurisdiction have the net effect of unnecessarily increasing
the cost of construction and stifling the use of innovative ma-
terials and construction techniques. These problems are com-
pounded by the lack of adequately trained officials responsible
for code enforcement and inspection. It is recommended that a
system be established for the adoption of a statewide minimum
building code with appropriate provisions for reasonable local
variations and for local enforcement.

The role of State government in the area of housing finance
has been the subject of considerable discussion and disagree-
ment. I am convinced of the need for better research and an-
alysis of the question, particularly as it relates to the possible
establishment of a State housing finance agency. I entertain
some reservations as to the use of such a program in Florida.
In order to help us decide whether or not we should seriously



consider such an agency, I am recommending that a study be
undertaken to assist us in resolving this question, as well as the
feasibility of a program of State mortgage insurance for Flor-



ida. The study would include a careful review of programs
presently operating in a number of other states which may or
may not be suitable for the particular needs of Florida.
Today there are at least 600,000 mobile homes in Florida and
1.2 million Floridians living in mobile homes. The task force I
appointed to review this area has prepared a number of findings
and recommendations. The most important recommendations are
enforcement of construction standards by a system of third-
party inspections and licensing of manufacturers; designation
of warranty responsibility between retail dealers and manufac-
turers; on-site inspections of location and set-ups of mobile
homes; and protection of purchasers against unconscionable
sales contracts.
In the case of each recommendation, both with respect to
housing and mobile homes, I have had the benefit of excellent
work by private citizens and legislators with considerable ex-
perience and expertise in the areas. Florida has been well served
by the Housing Goals Council and by the Mobile Home Task
Force in the work of preparing the two reports I submit for
your consideration. These proposals represent a modest, bal-
anced housing program for Florida. It is essential that State
government-in partnership with local governments, the federal
government and the private business community-continue to
address the very serious and complex problem of housing.
With kind regards,
Sincerely,
Reubin Askew
Governor

Governor's Supplementary Message on Growth and Environment

Honorable Members of the Legislature:
Let me begin by congratulating the legislature for its com-
mitment to developing a proposed growth policy for the State
of Florida that complements prior legislative programs and the
programs I will submit to you this year. I believe these pro-
grams definitely reflect a policy of balanced growth.
Knowledgeable observers agree that Florida already leads
the nation in developing an orderly growth policy that can be
implemented fairly and effectively. The land and water man-
agement legislation passed in 1972, consisting of several major
bills, provides Florida such a framework. The challenge now is
in implementing this legislation.
Many times the key to whether legislation is fully and prop-
erly implemented is determined by whether it receives adequate
funding. Such is the case with the landmark 1972 environ-
mental legislation. The responsibilities placed upon the Depart-
ment of Natural Resources, the Division of State Planning, and
regional planning councils by these acts is great, and to date
these agencies, because of inadequate funding, have struggled
to meet these responsibilities. The State must adequately fund
the Environmental Land and Water Management Act and the
Water Resources Act, including the regional agencies involved.
Such funding is included in my budget request. I strongly urge
that you appropriate these needed funds. We cannot protect
our environment and at the same time respond in a fair way
to development needs with the present level of funding.

Also in my budget is substantially increased funding for the
Department of Pollution Control and the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission. Last year you responded to my request
to provide general revenue funding for the first time for the



Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission. This year I ask you
for a needed major increase. The Department of Pollution Con-

trol's budget request is greatly increased. This too is necessary
to meet additional responsibilities resulting from new federal
legislation.
Local governments must be strengthened as partners in im-
plementing a balanced growth policy for Florida to protect the
environment and assure the prosperity of the State. One impor-
tant step in that direction is the Local Government Comprehen-
sive Planning Act recommended by the ELMS Committee.

It is appropriate to note that in the absence of a change in
our growth pattern Florida can expect 6,000 new residents
each week and a total population above 10 million in ten years.
With such burgeoning growth, we should all be concerned that
31 of our 67 counties do not have land use regulations and
that others are only partially regulated. The ELMS bill is a
reasoned response to this problem; it will encourage counties
and cities to develop comprehensive plans and assist them with
State funds. I urge you to give the ELMS proposal favorable
consideration.
Other steps are needed too. A companion measure to the
Local Government Comprehensive Planning Act is a proposal
by the Commission on Local Government to require a county-
wide mechanism in all Florida counties that can prepare and
insure the implementation of a county-wide land use plan. The
land use decisions of city and county governments would con-
tinue but they would be made within the framework of a county-
wide approach developed by a joint city-county council. This
ability to address land use problems on a county-wide basis
and still protect the essential responsibilities of existing cities
and counties is necessary if local governments are to be strong
partners in a balanced growth policy for Florida.

Several other Commission proposals to improve and strengthen
local government are important in this regard. Legislation re-
lating to county administrators and county charters would pro-
vide authorization for counties, if they chose to do so, to adopt
immediate and far-reaching improvements in county govern-
ment. The lack of a positive State policy and standards in
creating new local governmental units and adjusting the bound-
aries of existing units has tremendously impeded the develop-
ment of balanced growth policies at the local level. Also, due
to rapid growth, county government has often been forced to
expand service activities in unincorporated areas which has
resulted in the problem of "double taxation" of municipal resi-
dents for services they do not receive. I urge you to consider
carefully the recommendations of the Local Government Study
Commission to redress problems in these areas and insure that
local governments can in fact be strong partners in a balanced
growth policy for Florida.

It is imperative that I take this opportunity to reiterate my
intention to oppose any amendments to the 1972 land and
water management acts that would strip the administering
agencies of any substantive powers or undo any accomplish-
ments attributable to this legislation. I am particularly con-
cerned about legislation that would repeal the Big Cypress
Area of Critical State Concern, including the Okaloacoochee
Slough, the Ten Thousand Islands and the Fakahatchee Strand
as well as encumber or protract the critical area process.

However, I will support amendments to streamline and sim-
plify the process for developments of regional impact because
such amendments to Chapter 380 should improve it for all
concerned.

One of the major items of unfinished business last year was
legislation to protect our valuable wetlands. Consistent with



the recommendations of the ELMS Committee and the Florida
Wildlife Federation's wetlands conference, I am presenting for



your consideration wetlands legislation based on Chapter 380.
The proposed legislation emphasizes the pressing need to
protect our coastal areas and provides an effective mechanism
for inland wetland designation and protection.
I must bring to your attention an issue that is on the minds
of many citizens who must deal with our fragmented State
permitting system. On any given project, an applicant is pres-
ently faced with having to receive approval or authorization
from five to ten State agencies. Such a system, of course, is
tremendously time consuming. I concur in the desirability of
expert review of applications by specialized State agencies;
however, I do feel that we should take action to streamline and
coordinate our permitting process. To do this, I will support
a short form bill requesting the legislature to berin an interim
study of the permitting process with a view toward reron.nizin,
a lead agency to coordinate permit applications and using
computer technology for processing applications. The Division
of State Planning presently performs a similar function with
respect to A-95 reviews of federal funding requests. Since it is
not a permitting agency itself, this Division could reasonably
perform such a coordinating function for the other agencies
presently involved in permitting.

In closing. I can report to you that the program of land
acquisition you initiated through the 1972 Land Conservation
Act is now underway. Initial implementation has drawn atten-
tion to one major shortcoming, the lack of eminent domain
authority for the State to use in acquiring environmentally
endangered and outdoor recreational lands. This authority, avail-
able for many years at the local level of government, is needed
now at the State level to allow the acquisition program to be
fully implemented.
Florida is a leader among the states in re-sondinc construc-
tively to the many issues in the area of growth and the environ-
ment. I have outlined here legislative recommendations that
will insure continuation of our record of excellence in 1974.
With kind regards,
Sincerely,

Governor's Supplementary Message on Energy

Honorable Members of the Legislature:
In the past year we have seen a crisis of fuel shortages
and escalating prices far beyond anyone's expectations. This
experience has underscored the strengths and weaknesses of our
State policy. It has emphasized that we cannot rely upon fed-
eral actions as a substitute for State preparedness.
Fortunately, last year this Legislature was one of the first
in the nation to begin the process of developing a coherent
State energy policy. The people of Florida have been well
served by the competence and expertise of the Florida Energy
Committee and its staff. This headstart helped us approach
these times with a level of independence unavailable to many
states.

Three areas of legislation are of uppermost importance in
the energy field. First is the creation of an independent public
advocate who will vigorously represent the interest of con-
sumers in all cases before the Public Service Commission. Second
is the prompt funding and empowerment of the State Office of
Petroleum Allocation and Energy Conservation which has and
must continue to alleviate hardships and emergencies caused by



the fuel shortage. Third is the reform of the municipal tax on
utility bills.

April 2, 1974









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



For the past two years I have urged the Legislature to
establish an independent consumer advocate who would ap-
pear before the Public Service Commission. The sharply esca-
lating prices of electricity can no longer be ignored. The struc-
ture of the regulatory process can no longer be condoned.
The setting of utility rates involves hundreds of millions of
dollars. We cannot tolerate the continuance of a rate making
process in which the utility company employs the best legal
talent it can find, while the consumer is too often nothing more
than an innocent and invisible bystander. The rate making
process must be made an adversary process which assures com-
plete and adequate representation of the consumers' interests.
The Commis:ion cannot and should not be forced to be both
advocate and arbiter, prosecutor and judge. Simply put, the
utility should have independent counsel, the consumer should
have independent counsel, and the Commission should decide the
case.
In the past, too much legislative debate has centered on where
the public advocate should be located and who should appoint
him. The creation of a truly independent advocate is far
more important than its organizational location. For a model
of independence, I specifically recommend to you the office
of the auditor general. The consumer advocate's task will not be
easy, and the Legislature must provide sufficient funds for the
advocate so that he may secure a staff and expert witnesses,
where necessary, which will guarantee that the consumer has
the same level of professional advocacy in his behalf as the
utility company pays for and receives.

Since November 1, 1973 the State has participated in the
federal mandatory petroleum allocation program. The State
has had a limited, but extremely important role. The State has
managed a relatively small reserve and has distributed fuel
to alleviate individual hardship and emergency cases. Prior
to February 1, 1974 the State's authority was limited to middle
distillates including home heating oil and diesel. Since that
date gasoline has been the primary problem.

"The State Office of Petroleum Allocation and Energy Con-
servation was initially organized and headed by the State
Budget Director, Mr. Wallace Henderson, on a temporary basis.
General Homer Hutchinson now heads a staff which numbers
20 full time positions and 15 temporary positions. The re-
sponsibility and burden that the fuel shortage placed upon this
offi e were enormous. The dedication and effort of Mr. Hender-
son, General Hutchinson, and their able staffs have been
exemplary. Frankly I doubt if any group of State employees
has worked harder, under more pressure, and in less charted
waters. For instance, in February the State office working
with 26 separate major oil companies directed the distribution
of approximately 2,695,000 gallons of gasoline to 489 specific
end users on an individual emergency basis. In addition the
State directed the distribution of approximately 22.362,000
gallons on a pro rata share, county by county basis, in those
areas where the shortage was most severe. This month the
office expects to allocate over 4.2 million gallons to over 650
end users and approximately 16.6 million gallons on a county by
county basis.

The essential cause for the disruptions and shortages which
we have experienced in Florida is that the federal allocation
system has been based upon the amount of fuel consumed in the
calendar year of 1972. This federal policy obviously excludes the
enormous population and business growth which we have had
in this state since 1972 and overlooks the essential principle
of equitable distribution of the fuel according to current needs.



I have devoted my full efforts, as I know many Legislators
and our Congressional delegation have, to convincing the fed-



eral government to update its program to 1974 needs. As early
as November of last year I pointed out the fundamental un-
fairness of the federal program to Governor John Love, Mr.
Simon's predecessor as Federal Energy Director. I have con-
tinued and will continue to emphasize to Mr. Simon and other
federal officials the absolute necessity of accommodating our
growth since 1972 in order to treat Floridians fairly.
After months of effort, we were encouraged by Mr. Simon's
announcement on March 7, 1974 that every state would re-
ceive at least 85 percent of its current 1974 demand. Further-
more, Mr. Simon has committed himself to continue to equalize
the amounts received by each State, and has promised that in
April every state would be brought even closer to parity.
While we are hopeful that the worst of the disruptions caused
by the fuel shortage is over, it is imperative for the Legisla-
ture to adequately and expeditiously fund and empower the
Office of Petroleum Allocation and Energy Conservation to
deal with our current problems. The operation of the office has
depleted our emergency funds and should receive an additional
appropriation for the remainder of this fiscal year in order
to provide more adequate follow-up and to correct the maldis-
tributions in the allocation and supply system.
Of crucial importance is the ability to obtain adequate factual
information and necessary data in order to administer the
allocation system. The State office must have the power to re-
quire periodic reporting and to subpoena records and require
testimony if necessary. While county and city governments
responded admirably to the gasoline shortage and implemented
efficient, local gas purchasing systems, statewide uniformity has
been lacking. The State office should be granted the power to
develop a uniform system comparable to the Oregon Plan which
would be adopted at the option of the local government. I
urge you to pass legislation funding and empowering the State
office within the early days of this session.
With a longer range view, I commend to you the Energy
Committee's recommendation of an Energy Information Act. It
is obvious that one of the primary reasons that our nation was
totally unprepared for the energy shortage was because we
were totally uninformed. Information on energy resources, pro-
duction, and use were not known and analyzed by government,
but were scattered, incomplete, and in a number of private
hands. If we remain ignorant of our energy resources, we are
destined to continue their mismanagement.
Just as we were unprepared for the allocation of petroleum
products, the State is also unable to manage the generation,
conservation, and efficient distribution of electricity. While
the electric utilities deserve much credit for organizing a volun-
tary power pool, the Legislature should very carefully re-
view this area and assure itself that the Public Service Com-
mission has adequate jurisdiction and standby authority to
guarantee the reliability and efficiency of the overall electrical
generation and distribution system.

"The emergency powers which have been assigned to the
Governor by Legislatures over the years are extraordinarily
expansive, however, none of these statutes foresaw the energy
shortage and by their own terms are not applisable to such
a situation. While I personally seek no further powers, we
cannot ignore the reality of the harm and injury which can occur
to the citizens of Florida when energy is unavailable, just as
we cannot ignore the reality of natural disasters and civil
disorders for which there is appropriate standby authority.

It is far better that the Legislature confer this power during
the calm and deliberative mood which is available to us now



rather than during a special session called during the middle

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



of an emergency. I recommend the Legislature review the
existing emergency powers and specifically make the powers
applicable to conditions in which there is an energy shortage
and establish any appropriate guidelines, safeguards, and
priorities for the exercise of this authority.

The municipal taxation of utility bills as presently consti-
tuted is one of the most regressive aspects of our State tax
structure. Too many cities now accentuate the regressivity of
the tax by using a sliding or declining scale in which the per-
centage of taxation decreases as the total utility bill increases.
Consistent with outstanding bond obligations, the Legislature
should prohibit a declining scale and should require that the
tax at least be uniform or graduated to increase as consumption
increases, but in no event should the maximum be enlarged
beyond the present 10 percent cap. Such a tax rate would more
fairly treat the residential and business consumer and would
reward, not penalize, energy conservation. We should also work
toward eliminating or reducing this utility tax on households.
The burden of the tax has been increased by the sharply esca-
lating fuel adjustment charges. Municipalities need the authority
to exempt residential fuel adjustment charges and household
consumers from this tax. The Legislature should provide for
these exemptions so cities can fashion their own fair and ade-
quate tax policies.

Last year I recommended that the Legislature adopt truth
in energy legislation for the simple reason that the large ma-
jority of the lay population, although desirous of conserving
energy and thereby minimizing their expenses, is unable to dis-
tinguish between efficient and inefficient appliances and equip-
ment. I strongly support the Energy Committee's recommenda-
tion to require the disclosure and labeling of energy efficiencies
and average operating costs for all major energy consuming
appliances.

The Energy Committee was initially given a two year tenure
to investigate and develop a comprehensive energy policy for
Florida. Because of the severity of the current shortage, the
State has had to rely to a great extent upon the time and
staff of the Committee in coping with immediate problems.
Consequently, the Committee has been sidetracked from its
longer range goals. For this reason, I recommend that the
life of the Committee be extended for an additional year.

This January when federal legislation shifted the time from
eastern standard to winter daylight saving, we experienced
a tragically large number of deaths of young children traveling
to school in the predawn darkness. Some of these deaths oc-
curred during conditions of rain, fog, and darkness. Although
we can never be sure which factor was the primary one, gov-
ernment is not able to do anything about the rain and fog,
but it can remove the problem of children beginning school
in darkness.

The early morning rain, fog, and darkness together with
the potential for tragedy will return next winter. For this
reason, I ask the Legislature to memorialize Congress to re-
peal winter daylight saving time when it receives an interim
report on its effects this summer. Although our first goal is
a nationwide repeal, we cannot be assured of Congressional
action. Therefore the Legislature in addition should exercise the
exemption provided by federal law to return the State to east-
ern standard time next fall. This would allow us to enjoy
the normal benefits of daylight saving time this summer, stand-
ard time next winter, and daylight saving time next summer.



The energy problems facing our State are as difficult and
complex as any this Legislature has dealt with. We are for-
tunate and justifiably proud that the people of Florida have



minimized the effects of the fuel shortage by initiative, coopera-
tion, and energy conservation. Let us continue to provide
the type of commitment and leadership that our citizens merit.
Sincerely,

Governor's Supplementary Message on Workmen's Compensation

Honorable Members of the Legislature:
During my administration I have recommended many changes
in Florida's Workmen's Compensation laws. Many of these
proposals have passed and as a result the working men and
women of Florida have a more adequate system to meet their
needs when tragedy befalls them through work-related in-
juries. We have made gains in Florida, yet we fall woefully
short in many areas of our program. It is our duty to remedy
these problem areas, not only for working people in Florida,
but to stem the growing threat of a federal takeover in this
program.
During the last legislative session, I came to the awareness
that there was a lack of understanding of the purpose, need
and history of this program. Many of my proposals were
opposed by segments of industry or individuals who lacked
full information and understanding of their significance. For
this reason, rather than tell industry and labor what should
be done in the Workmen's Compensation program, I deter-
mined to ask them to tell me.
To accomplish this goal, I appointed a Task Force on Work-
men's Compensation made up of leaders of industry, labor,
insurance carriers, the legal and medical professions, as well
as members of the legislature. The purpose of this task force
was to evaluate the total Workmen's Compensation program
in Florida and make recommendations as to how it should
be improved. This procedure marked a departure in the tradi-
tional approach of improving our Workmen's Compensation
program. Historically, the Chief Executive and the Department
of Commerce have told the business and labor communities
what reforms were necessary, a posture which often met with
less than enthusiastic support. We determined this year to
reverse these roles and provide an opportunity for business
and labor to meet together and develop recommendations for
reform. I am pleased to say that this experiment has met
with resounding success. The Task Force on Workmen's Com-
pensation has delivered to me a report with recommendations
which, if followed, will clearly bring Florida to the forefront
in the field of Workmen's Compensation. The proposals in-
cluded in the report will add a needed balance to our program
while correcting the severe deficiencies. Enactment of these
reforms would aid us greatly in our efforts to avoid another
federal take-over of a program which is best administered
at the state level and in a manner more responsive to the
needs of Florida employers and employees.
I am forwarding a summary of this report to you with the
request that the proposals contained therein be given careful
legislative scrutiny and passed into law.
With kind regards,
Sincerely,
Reuben Askew
Governor

Summary of task force recommendations:



That self-employed individuals be permitted to elect cov-
erage.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



That officers of corporations be permitted to elect to have
no coverage.
That only the actually dependent spouse of the decedent
worker be permitted to be a beneficiary under the Florida
Workmen's Compensation Act.
That the definition of occupational diseases be broadened
to include those diseases suffered by a working man as a
result of his occupation and higher incidence among workers
in that occupation than that which the general public suffers.
That the maximum weekly benefit amount be raised to
2/3 of the state's average weekly wage.



Presentation of St. Petersburg Times Award
On motion by Mrs. Grizzle, the rules were waived and the
Speaker appointed Representatives A. S. Robinson, Whitson,
and Wilson as a committee to escort Mr. Stanford H. Stiles of
the St. Petersburg Times to the rostrum.
On motion by Mr. Turlington, the Speaker appointed Repre-
sentatives Andrews, Redman, and Conway as a committee to
escort Representative MacKay to the rostrum.
On behalf of the St. Petersburg Times and those legislative
correspondents and newspaper editors who participated in its
poll, the Speaker presented Representative MacKay a plaque
symbolizing his selection as the "Most Valuable Member" of
the 1973 House.



That the $25,000 limitation on death benefits be removed. t o t C o R
Report of the Committee on Rules & Calendar



That the actually dependent spouse of a decedent worker be
given 104 weeks of benefits upon remarriage.
That workers who are permanently and totally disabled have
their weekly benefit amount increased by 5% for each year
that has passed since the injury occurred.
That an employee who has suffered the loss of an arm, leg,
hand, foot or both eyes shall be paid 80% of his average
weekly wage, not to exceed $400 during the period that he is
undergoing rehabilitation for a period not to extend beyond
6 months from the date of his accident.
That the salaries of the Judges of Industrial Claims be
raised to that which is enjoyed by the county judges in
counties with a population in excess of 40,000.
That a comprehensive medical vocational rehabilitation
center be established within the State of Florida for those
who are severely injured.
That agricultural workers who work for a farmer who had
a gross payroll (exclusive of wages paid to members of his
immediate family) of $1,000 for the prior year be covered.
That neither an exclusive state fund nor a competitive state
fund be established to provide Workmen's Compensation in-
surance.
The National Council on Compensation Insurance has indicated
that the cost of removing the aggregate limitations on death
benefits would increase premiums by 5.4% on the average.
The Council has indicated that increasing the maximum weekly
benefit to 66-2/3% of the state's average weekly wage would
increase compensation cost approximately 4.6%.
It indicated that should Florida provide a special weekly bene-
fit to amputees and the blind, it would increase compensation
cost by approximately 0.3% on the average.
NOTE: The Task Force recommended that a cost of living
increase to the permanently and totally disabled
workers be funded from the Workmen's Compensa-
tion Administrative Trust Fund and not through
an increase in premiums.

Following his address, Governor Askew was escorted from
the Chamber by the committee. The members of the Supreme
Court, Lieutenant Governor Adams, and the members of the
Cabinet were escorted from the Chamber by the House Sergeant
