Prayer
Prayer by President J. N. Lybbert, Tallahassee Stake Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints:
Our Father, Who art in heaven, as we assemble here
in the first day of this session of the Florida Legislature
we wish to express appreciation for our blessings and pray
for Thy divine guidance. We are grateful for the numerous
blessings which are ours because of the constitutions of
the United States and the State of Florida which insure to
us an orderly process of governing ourselves. May we as
a people always respect the principles contained therein.
Many of our legislators hold special key positions of
authority; bless them with an additional measure of skill
and ability. We pray for the individual welfare of each
legislator that he will receive physical and spiritual pro-
tection while here and ask that his family receive the same
protection.



Democratic government functions best when the citizens
take an active part and for this reason we pray that all
Florida citizens will participate by informing their repre-
sentative of their will concerning legislation, and that they
in turn will be sensitive to every need, desire, and honor-
able request made by their constituents. Father, we know
that Thou art our creator and we acknowledge Thy hand
in all things and we know that there is not anything that
Thou canst not do. We beg of Thee Father that Thy spirit
will always be here in this august legislative body working
a mighty work upon these assembled helping them always
to bring forth good legislation. These blessings, together
with all others in which we stand in need of, we pray for
in the name of Thy Son Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, Amen.

Pledge
The Members pledged allegiance to the Flag.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



PER CURIAM.
One of the greatest improvements that could be made in the
criminal justice system is to adopt methods for expediting
appeals in criminal cases. This has been a matter of great
concern.
An Appellate Review Committee was appointed to develop a
long-range plan for improving the appellate process. This
Committee has recommended that two additional judges be
added to each of the District Courts of Appeal.
The Judicial Council of Florida and the Florida Appellate
Judges' Conference have also recommended the addition of two
judges for each District Court of Appeal.
The recommendation of the Appellate Review Committee
contained the following:
1. To urge the addition of two judges to the District Courts
of Appeal in the First, Second and Fourth Districts effective
immediately. Although the Third District has a heavy load, they
are fortunate in that they are not required to travel and do
have available a retired judge who has offered to assist them
for another year and they can draw from the local circuit
bench when an emergency arises. The Third District, therefore,
agreed to wait for a year for assistance.
2. Estimating that each of the foregoing judges plus one
research assistant plus one secretary would cost approximately
$60,000 per year, we determined that most of the cost of the six
judges could be absorbed with only nominal, if any, expense to
the taxpayers by increasing the appellate filing fees in the
District Courts of Appeal from $25.00 to $75.00 and in the
Supreme Court from $25.00 to $100.00. These fees have not
been raised in many years and the recommended increases are
in line with modern times. We estimate there will be annually
2000 filings in the Supreme Court and with the increase of
$75.00 per case, it would produce a total of $150,000.00, and in
the four District Courts of Appeal, we estimate 6700 filings and
with the increase of $50.00 per case, it would produce a total of
$335,000.00 for a grand total in all appellate courts of $485,-
000.00 per year.
NOW, THEREFORE, pursuant to Section 9, Article V, Con-
stitution of Florida, as revised March 14, 1972, we hereby certify
the need for additional district, circuit and county judges as
follows:
District Courts



First District

For every grace and benefit You have bestowed upon us,
individually and collectively, we thank you our God. We
thank You for our country. We confess its weaknesses
are but the reflection of our corporate human weaknesses.
We implore Your mercy upon our failures. We confess
our guilt in judging the faults of others from the midst of
our own frailties. We confess too that we demand of others
what so often we fail to require of ourselves.
For the beauty and benefits of our own beloved Florida
we offer heartfelt thanks. Help us maintain its beauties
and add to them the beauty of healthful living, morally,
spiritually, and physically. For our government, within this
state, we offer our prayers.
Grant that love of power, so often attractive to our
human ego, may be suppressed before the knowledge of the
divine overview of human government. Grant that selfish
ambitions, so strong an appetite within human leadership,
may be quelled before the greater needs of the people we
represent. Grant that the achievement of the approval of
God and conscience may be our only measure of success.
Amen.

Governor's Address

The President presented Governor Askew, who after greeting
the Supreme Court, the Cabinet, Members of the Legislature,
and guests, addressed the Joint Session as follows:
Faith is precious. It cannot be purchased with money. It
cannot be preserved with empty words.
The price of the faith of the people is high. They ask for
honesty and vision. They ask for an abiding commitment to
something more than ourselves.
And sometimes they ask for more than we think we can
give, more than we think we are capable of giving.
Yet the people have given us their votes and their voice and
their trust. And the price of their faith can never be too high,
or too dear for us to pay.
Seldom have we needed their faith more than we do today. It
can sustain us and summon us to greatness in our time of
trouble and uncertainty.
We must rely on their faith. We must renew it and restore it
and, above all else, prove worthy of it in the work of our
government.
And faith . in the people, in ourselves, in our institutions
and our common values, and in our Creator . must be the
foundation of our work.
This is the tenth time I have addressed the Legislature as
Governor of Florida. Together, we have worked to earn the
faith of the people in the past. I am confident that we will earn
their faith anew in the days and the weeks ahead.
We have the wisdom of experience in our legislative leader-
ship, in Dempsey Barron and Don Tucker, and in those who head
the various committees.
"We have the vision of youth in outstanding new legislators
who have already proven their dedication and their determina-
tion in preparing for this session.
The people hope for candor and courage from all who are a
part of our legislative process . and they hope for coopera-
tion, too, in the best interests of our state.
Lieutenant Governor Jim Williams and I believe there is
reason for hope and there is need for faith as we begin this
legislative session.

BUDGET

We all know our current constraints. We do not have to be



reminded of the shortfalls and the pitfalls of our continuing
economic crisis.

April 8, 1975









4 JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE

My recommended budget for the coming year was constructed
with one unpleasant fact always uppermost in my mind . .
that this is a year in which state revenue will be severely
limited by the state of the economy.
So the budget I have offered does not do all the things we
would like to do. It does not serve all the needs we would like
to serve. It does not solve all the problems we would like to
solve.
But it does do many things. It does serve many genuine needs.
It does provide a useful blueprint for solving some of the prob-
lems we face in these troubled times.
Where there must be sacrifice, we all must share in that
sacrifice. And the budgets of all state agencies have shared in
the sacrifices of recent months.
But this does not mean that our school children will be short-
changed, that the needy will be neglected, or that the unem-
ployed will be ignored.
Within the boundaries of our unprecedented financial con-
straints, we have done our best to give priority to human needs
in the recommended budget.
We are recommending, for example, new staff positions for
our food stamp centers and funds for continuing our coopera-
tive efforts with local governments in community service pro-
grams.
I hope you will accept as well my recommendation to use
21.2-million dollars of the state's share of federal revenue
sharing for operating costs in education.
For it will help assure that our public schools are provided
with no less money per pupil than is available during the cur-
rent fiscal year.
I know you understand the consequences of using too much
of these revenue sharing funds for reoccurring expenses in day-
to-day school operations. Most of this money should be used for
building the schools we need to reduce double sessions and
improve our overall educational facilities.
During the past four years, while I have served as your
Governor, general revenue funding in education has increased by
about 563-million dollars . by more than 60 percent. This is
evidence of our enduring commitment to education.
But this is a year in which we have fewer dollars to spend.
It is a year in which I am confident you will establish your
priorities on the basis of long-range goals, and not short-range
expediencies.
There is never room for waste in government . and certain-
ly not when government revenue and resources are severely
limited.
State agencies estimate that acceptance of the recommenda-
tions of the Governor's Management and Efficiency Study will
eventually result in annual net benefits to the state in excess
of 83-million dollars.
We have already implemented by administrative action most
of the recommendations in the executive branch. Legislative
approval is needed for others, such as acceptance of the best bid
on state printing contracts . whether those bids are from
Florida firms or not.



I



Your approval of all these recommendations could assure the
people additional savings on their tax dollars.
One recommendation I would particularly like to bring to your
attention concerns the budget-making process.



E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 8, 1975

Too much of the time of administrators and legislators alike
is consumed by budget-making. We should explore the possi-
bility of having biennial budgets with an annual review.


TAX REFORM

Tax reform is an unending process. No tax structure is ever
as fair as it might be. No revenue base is ever beyond reform.
As Andrew Jackson once said, "The wisdom of man never yet
contrived a system of taxation that would operate with perfect
equality."
His words are just as true now as they were more than
a century ago. But, if we cannot have a perfect tax system, we
can still strive for a system better than the one we have.
This is certainly no time for any general increase in state
taxes. These are hard times. And increases in state taxes would
tend to offset anticipated federal tax reductions.
But there are some things we should do to further improve
our tax structure. And I urge you specifically to eliminate the
rebate for collection of the state sales, beverage and cigarette
taxes.
I am delighted that both the President of the Senate and the
Speaker of the House have expressed an interest in making
these improvements.
And I know you share my feeling that some relief should
be given at this session to ease the burden of households suffer-
ing from what I consider to be one of the most onerous taxes in
our state . the municipal utility tax.
This is especially needed during this time of inflation and
recession.
And I might add . I cannot accept any reduction in our
projected revenue from pari-mutuel taxes.
And I should add, too, that I will vigorously oppose any
effort for a statewide lottery or for legalized casino gambling
in Florida.


UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION

There was a time, perhaps, when all of us in Florida be-
lieved that anyone who really wanted a job would find one.
That time has passed.
Insured unemployment . unemployment among those eli-
gible for state benefits . increased by 243 percent in Florida
during the past year.
More than 300,000 men and women in our work force do not
have jobs. Many more of our people have dropped out of the
work force because they could not find jobs.
I am asking you to undertake a recodification of our com-
plex and confusing Unemployment Compensation Law.
And I am asking you to eliminate the waiting week for unem-
ployment benefits. This has already been done in our neigh-
boring states of Alabama and Georgia.
We have improved our maximum level of compensation in
recent years.



We all know, of course, that jobless workers draw no more
than fifty percent of their average weekly salaries. And we do
not propose any changes in that. But Florida still ranks about
40th in the nation in the amount of average weekly benefits.









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



I believe we should increase the maximum this year from
74 dollars to 90 dollars. This also will bring us in line with
Alabama and Georgia.

ENVIRONMENT
We are striving to protect Florida's environment, even as
we seek new and better ways to expand and strengthen our
economy.
We are striving to implement the growth policy the Legisla-
ture adopted for Florida, a policy that will enable us to enjoy
the blessings of both preservation and prosperity in the coming
years.
We need a policy that recognizes the importance of tourism,
agriculture and construction to our economy . and recognizes
as well the overall need to diversify our economy.
But, where environmental matters are concerned, our ability
to respond to the needs of the state has been hindered by the
fragmentation of our environmental efforts.
I have already told you how important I feel it is for us to
end the complexity of the administration of our environmental
programs. Our environmental permitting procedures must be
simplified and consolidated.
There is a vital need for a system of checks and balances be-
tween the public interest and various private interests in the
making of environmental decisions.
I have been impressed by the commitment and the insight
displayed by many members of the legislature . as well as
the leadership . in the consideration of this issue. I am
confident that, together, we can reorganize our environmental
agencies in the best interests of the people.
There are other environmental matters, too, which should
concern us during this Legislative Session.
We still need the comprehensive local planning that can
help assure the success of our statewide planning programs.
We need legislation to perpetuate our statewide system of
aquatic preserves.
And we need additional protection for our coastal and interior
wetlands.
We also need to continue the important work of the Property
Rights Study Commission in exploring the potential conflicts be-
tween protection of our natural resources and perpetuation of
individual property rights.
In our purchase of lands for the state, we have too often
been forced to buy only what was most available, and not what
was most desirable. I urge you to give to the state a power
already exercised by the cities and counties . the power of
eminent domain in the acquisition of parks and recreational
lands.
And I urge you to adopt an act that will assure proper guide-
lines in community development.
The naturalist Aldo Leopold told us that "when we see land as
a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with
love and respect."
And this is what we must do in Florida. For, if we lose our
land . if we lose our beaches and our parks and our play-
grounds and our lakes . we will lose the dreams that sustain
us.



We will lose the sense of place, the sense of purpose, and
the sense of community that unite us.



We will lose the Florida we all love.
And I think, too, that we will lose ourselves.

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND REHABILITATIVE
SERVICES

I agree with the leadership of the House and Senate that
we need to reorganize the Department of Health and Rehabilita-
tive Services.
We need to improve our management and consolidate our
delivery of services. We need to take the department closer to the
people it serves.
There could be no better time to accomplish this important
task. For, in a time of human need, we must stress human
services. In a time when revenue is scarce, we must see that
revenue is spent wisely.
Strong and visible statewide program offices should be a
part of the new structure. This is essential for adequate super-
vision, effective services, and maximum federal funding.
We must be certain that we have able and committed people
at the state level . working and thinking and planning for
better services throughout the state.
And our efforts at the state level must be complemented by
program supervisors in local communities who are trained to
fulfill the special needs of the various people who need H.R.S.
A viable alternative in reorganization would be the creation of
a separate department unifying adult corrections and the field
staff of the Probation and Parole Commission.
Some believe we should include youth delinquent programs
in this separate department. I do not. Young people, delinquent
or not, can be more effectively treated within an improved
Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services.
Yet we must be tougher in our dealings with some of our
older juveniles who have become very sophisticated in the ways
of crime and the uses of juvenile status in our judicial system.
Our courts should be given greater flexibility in treating
older juveniles as adults . whenever necessary. But we
should remember that, under present law, anyone over fourteen
years of age who commits a violent crime can be tried as an
adult in criminal court.
We must also remember that, whatever our shortcomings,
Florida is recognized as a national leader in confronting a diffi-
cult problem . that of preventing juvenile offenders from
becoming hardened adult criminals.
Our emphasis in corrections must be on results, and not retri-
bution. And this should be done in the realization that genuine
rehabilitation is the best possible protection for the people.
Reorganization of H.R.S. will make it easier for people to
find the help they need. It will eliminate duplication of staff and
services. It will help us better serve the needs of the elderly
and the disadvantaged and the handicapped.

HEALTH CARE

Many Floridians cannot afford the health and hospital care
they need. Some are poor. Some are older people living on
fixed incomes. But even average incomes are often insufficient
where soaring health costs are concerned.



Medicaid rates for hospital care in our state are now increas-
ing at an annual rate of 17 percent. Overall, the price of



5



April 8, 1975









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



medical care for everyone is increasing at more than twice the
rate of all other consumer goods and services.
We cannot solve the pressing problems of rising health costs
in Florida without federal legislation. But we must continue our
efforts to make decent health care available for all who need it.
Our present system of financing hospital care in Florida lacks
incentives for efficiency in administration. This is reflected in
the quality of the care people receive and in the hospital bills
people pay.
I endorse in concept the proposed legislation which would
require uniform reporting and accounting by hospitals through-
out Florida and establish a statewide system for containing
hospital costs.
This means that all hospitals will establish a schedule of
rates at the beginning of each year. They will adhere to those
rates and be accountable for those rates. They will be reim-
bursed on the basis of those rates.
There will be adequate provisions for monitoring and review-
ing rates throughout the year . provisions assuring fairness
for all concerned.
This program will save us money through better use of our
Medicaid dollars. It will save the people money, too.
And, where the health of the people is concerned, we must
find a fair solution to the problem of ever-increasing costs for
medical malpractice insurance.

HOUSING

As we consider the medical needs of the people, we must
also consider their housing needs.
A place to call home . a place to feel a part of . a
place that allows a sense of belonging. This is an essential part
of what we have always called the American Dream.
Yet the sad and undeniable truth is that the average Floridian
has often been unable to build a home, to find a home, or to
borrow or save enough money to buy a home.
It is within the legitimate domain of state government to
intercede at this time and serve as a catalyst in the recovery
of our construction industry and the delivery of decent housing
to the people.
Clearly, we do not have the resources to do the job without
federal assistance. But state government, working closely and
cooperatively with the private sector, can do much to help
solve those problems.
The Florida Legislature has demonstrated this problem-
solving capacity in recent years . in creation of the Housing
Goals Council, in passage of the Florida Housing Act of 1972,
in formation of the Florida Housing Development Corporation,
in provisions for a new statewide building code, and in imple-
mentation of a state rural housing program.
And now I am asking you to serve the needs of our people
for employment and decent housing by creating a state Housing
Finance Agency.
After long months of hard work, and with the benefit of the
time and the talents of many able people, the Florida Council
on State Housing Goals has recommended that we establish such
an agency.



This will require a Constitutional amendment to allow is-
suance of tax-exempt state bonds. We must be certain, however,



that, in providing for such an amendment, we will not in any
way endanger the full faith and credit of the state.
We can achieve that certainty through full assurances of
federal and private mortgage insurance and other safeguards.
And, with recognition of the support this proposal already en-
joys from builders and bankers and construction workers and
consumers throughout the state, we can adopt responsible legis-
lation.
Where the credit of government is concerned, we should also
conduct a complete review of the whole question of the use of
industrial bonding by local governments.
And, while we are considering the housing problems of the
people of Florida, we should continue as well our efforts to as-
sure fair treatment for the men and women who buy and live
in condominiums.

THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT
In recent years, the Florida Legislature has eliminated many
barriers against women. It is only fitting that we continue
eliminating barriers by ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment
at a time when our voice is needed.
The Equal Rights Amendment will not outlaw individual
choice in social customs. It will not endanger our domestic
institutions. It will not undermine personal values where those
values do not involve unwarranted discrimination.
The women of this state and of this nation have already
waited far too long for the equality that is their rightful in-
heritance by birth. I am hopeful, and I am confident, that the
members of the Florida Legislature will do their part this year
in acknowledging that inheritance.

OLDER PEOPLE
And, if women have faced discrimination in Florida, so too
have our older people.
Too often the talents of the one and a half million older
people in Florida are also ignored. Too often they are forgotten.
An example of this wasted talent is the inability of many
older and able men and women to find even part-time work.
Retirement is often mandated simply because an individual
reaches some arbitrary age. We should not compel unnecessary
early retirement.
Older people do not want to be dependents of government. But
in too many instances their independence is more aspiration than
reality.
I have been encouraged by legislative measures that would
provide ombudsman programs in nursing homes, better living
facilities, improvements in our guardianship laws, and ade-
quate protection from fear and fraud.
I urge you to explore every practical avenue that might offer
older people a better chance to share in the life and the liveli-
hood of our state.

ENERGY
Not long ago we gave little thought to energy needs in
Florida. Energy was plentiful. Energy was cheap. Our re-
sources seemed infinite and inexhaustible.
Now we know how shortsighted we were. Now we are dis-



covering, slowly and painfully, how wrong we were in our pre-
sumptions of the past.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



The legislative and executive branches of Florida's govern-
ment have assumed leadership in conserving existing energy
supplies and finding alternative sources.
We have dramatically reduced the consumption of energy by
state government. We have been successful in working with our
Congressional delegation to insure that Florida is treated fairly
in the allocation of our national resources. And we have begun
to explore our own potential for reducing our dependency on
imported oil.
I urge you to adopt a broad energy policy for our state as
proposed by the Florida Energy Committee.
And we can save the people money and yet improve our
energy efforts by combining the Energy Data Center, the office
of Petroleum Allocation and Energy Conservation and the
Florida Energy Committee into a single state energy office in
the Department of Administration.
We should also give statutory sanction to the 55 miles per
hour speed limit on our highways. And, where interstate high-
ways are involved, we should change our laws concerning out-
door advertising to enhance the beauty of Florida and to
assure no loss in federal funds.
I also support the recommendation of former Public Counsel
Fred Karl and the House Growth and Energy Committee re-
garding expansion of the Public Service Commission.
Expansion from three to five members will help alleviate
the heavy caseload of the present commissioners by providing
simultaneous proceedings. It will also bring a broader spec-
trum of thought and experience to the Commission.
An appointive Commission will improve our ability to at-
tract people knowledgeable in the complexities of utility regu-
lation. I suggest for your consideration the selection pro-
cedures we are now using for Probation and Parole Commis-
sioners.
And, as evidence that we are sincere in our desire to de-
velop alternative energy sources for Florida, I urge you to
approve my budget recommendation for the Florida Solar
Energy Center.
It is our hope that the work of our Solar Energy Center
near the Kennedy Space Center will convince the federal
government to invest its funds in a combined research effort.
We are confident that a demonstration of financial interest
on our part will help accomplish that result, just as it did
in our efforts to preserve the Big Cypress Swamp.
But the earmarked appropriation, even without federal as-
sistance, will help Florida play a meaningful role in harness-
ing the boundless energy of the sun.



Our prison population increased by 471 inmates in February
and by 532 inmates in March. This is more than a thous-
and . and nearly 8.6 percent more in our state inmate
population than just two months ago. There are now 12,716
inmates in our penal institutions.
We need additional space. We also need stricter punish-
ment for repeat offenders and mandatory prison sentences
for the use of dangerous weapons in committing crimes.
Legislation requiring these stiffer penalties and mandatory
sentences will, of course, further increase the population of
our already overcrowded institutions. We must all understand
that.
There should also be an absolute prohibition on the manu-
facture, assembly, sale and possession of the "Saturday Night
Specials" that are so often the lethal accomplices of crime.
And there should be a 72-hour waiting period in the purchase
of all other handguns.
Handguns in our society are instruments of death. They
should be treated as such.
The present system of money bail in Florida discriminates
against the poor. It also burdens the taxpayers with the cost
of detention of those awaiting trial who need not be in jail.
I urge you to adopt a comprehensive reform of our bail sys-
tem.
Criminal punishment should be administered strictly and
swiftly and fairly. But too often the sentencing process is
affected by race and background and geography. Florida
should have some means of reviewing sentences to assure
fairness.
We have learned from the experience of Florida's state-
wide grand juries. We have had the sound advice of state
attorneys and other local law enforcement officials.

I have concluded that, to be more effective, the state-
wide grand jury must have a permanent, full-time legal staff.
We must also improve the ability of the Florida Department
of Criminal Law Enforcement to assist the statewide grand
jury in fighting organized crime.

These changes would help the statewide grand jury make
a greater contribution to reducing crime.


ELECTIONS AND ETHICS

The people are hoping for responsiveness from us in im-
proving criminal justice. . and in providing the new laws
and new programs we need. But much more than that is
needed to sustain the faith of the people.



Politics is a partnership between the people and their
CRIMINAL JUSTICE elected officials.



The first responsibility of any government is to protect its
citizens from lawlessness and crime.

We all know that crime continues to increase in our state,
as elsewhere. And recent increases are alarming, to say the
least.
My recommended budget includes 269-million dollars for our
system of justice . about five percent more than current
appropriations. This includes a ten percent increase in support
for prosecutors. And I am recommending 21-million dollars
of a total of 28-million dollars in state construction funds for
building prisons.



The people must show a greater willingness to fulfill their
responsibilities in the political process.

We must not frustrate that willingness with artificial
barriers to voting.

We need laws to purge the voting rolls every four years,
instead of every two years.

We should legislate uniform and mandatory statewide rules
allowing voter registration by mail and making registration
offices more accessible to working people at night and on
some weekends.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Absentee voters should only have to make one request for
ballots to be eligible to vote in both primaries and the general
election.
But the willingness of the people to participate requires a
renewal of public confidence.
And that renewal must come from improvements in the
ways we choose our public officials and in the ways those
public officials view their responsibilities to the people.
Our election code has long served as a model for other states.
Yet our elections are still too often influenced by privilege and
wealth.
We should return to a one thousand dollar maximum indi-
vidual contribution to any candidate in any election.
The maximum individual cash contribution to any candidate
in any election should be twenty-five dollars.
And there should be limitations, too, on the amount candi-
dates can contribute to their own campaigns.
We should also combine the Elections and Ethics Commis-
sions. This would be more effective and more efficient in the
spending of the people's money and the protection of the
people's trust.
And, as we consider ways to renew public confidence in our
electoral traditions, we cannot overlook the alternative of pub-
lic financing.
A mixed system of public and private financing of election
campaigns will soon be tried at the national level.
Like many of you, I have some reservations about this al-
ternative at the state level.
But, in the coming year, the staffs of the appropriate legis-
lative committees should study the potential for such financing
in Florida.
And, as we seek ways to improve our electoral traditions,
we must also seek ways to improve our Constitutional tradi-
tions.

The faith of the people cannot be preserved by the executive
and legislative branches alone. Our courts are the guardians of
our laws. They are the custodians of our respect for a lawful
and just society.

And, at a time when our institutions of government are
being tried in the court of public confidence, the judges in our
courts must have the confidence of the people.

We have established Judicial Nominating Commissions to
fill judicial vacancies in Florida. We have provided for the non-
partisan election of judges. These reforms have helped.

Yet removing the partisanship from judicial selections and
elections has not sufficiently removed the politics from the
judicial process.

We cannot allow our system of justice to be misused. We
must strive for a system of fairness, and not favoritism.

I endorse the recommendation of the Judicial Council of
Florida, ably headed by Justice B. K. Roberts, regarding merit
selection and retention of judges, commonly called the Missouri
Plan. This should apply at least to the appellate level.

The introduction of the Missouri Plan will help us improve



the quality of justice in Florida. It will provide the broad par-
ticipation and perspective we need in our judicial system.



There seems to be substantial agreement that we should also
change our means of considering removal of Supreme Court
Justices.
The Constitution should specify by position those judicial
officials who will judge members of the Supreme Court in
cases involving recommendations for removal.
Supreme Court Justices should not be required to sit in
judgment of their fellow justices.
It is my understanding that Chief Justice James Adkins
followed this procedure voluntarily in the selection of a special
panel which decided the question before the court this week.
We should make proceedings before the Judicial Qualifica-
tions Commission more open to the people . and yet still
retain the confidentiality necessary in the early stages of any
investigation.
And, as we seek Constitutional ways to improve our judicial
system, Constitutional means should also be explored for a
fair system of suspension for Cabinet Officers under indictment.
This would be in the public interest and in the interest of
any accused Cabinet Officer as well.
You have on your desks the recommendations of the Ethics
Commission concerning conflict-of-interest and financial disclo-
sure.
These recommendations are the product of a year's study and
a year's experience with Florida's ethics laws.
They are the work of Chairman Sandy D'Alemberte, Gover-
nor LeRoy Collins, Justice E. Harris Drew, and the other mem-
bers of the Commission . as well as many other people
devoted to our state.
We must prove we are truly public servants . and not the
servants of either the vested interests or our own selfish in-
terests.
I urge you to pass the recommendations of the Ethics Com-
mission . without exception and without hesitation.
I felt that my first election as Governor was a mandate
from the people for tax reform.
I consider my reelection to be a mandate for full financial
disclosure.
I will do everything I can to fulfill that mandate.
"Sometimes," Thomas Jefferson wrote, "it is said that man
cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he,
then, be trusted with the government of others? Or have we
found angels in the form of kings to govern him?"
It is our task to prove anew that men and women can be
trusted with the government of themselves.
We have no need for such angels.
We have no need for such kings.
We need only the common sense and the courage and the
abiding conviction of good and honest people. Thank you.

Chamber by the committee. The members of the Supreme
Court, the Lieutenant Governor and members of the Cabinet

Reconvened
The House was called to order by the Speaker at 12:10 p.m.
A quorum was present.

Presentation of St. Petersburg Times Award
On motion by Mr. Craig, the rules were waived and the
Speaker appointed Representatives Grizzle, Kutun, and Conway
as a committee to escort Mr. Sanford H. Stiles of the St.
Petersburg Times and The Honorable Marshall S. Harris to the
rostrum.

Following brief remarks by Mr. Stiles, the Speaker, on behalf
of the St. Petersburg Times and those legislative correspondents
and newspaper editors who participated in the poll, presented
Mr. Harris with a plaque symbolizing his selection as the "Most
Valuable Member" of the 1974 House.


Address by Speaker Tucker

The Speaker addressed the House as follows:

First I want to say that since I have been in office this 1975
House is the most innovative, the hardest working, best quali-
fied group that has filled these legislative seats. I have to
brag a little bit about what we have been doing and I want
to commend our Committee Chairmen for their tremendous ef-
fort.
We are further ahead at this point in time than any previous
Legislature. We already have, ready for introduction and consid-
eration on the floor, several major pieces of legislation. This
week we will take up a comprehensive land planning bill and
we will take up the ERA question.
We already have ready for consideration the reorganization
of the Health and Rehabilitative Services Department. We have
a bill on Environmental Reorganization. We have a major bill
concerning Educational Funding with special emphasis placed on
grades one, two and three. We have a bill from the Growth and
Energy Committee to reorganize and create an appointive
Public Service Commission. Our Agriculture and General Legis-
lation Committee has several bills already prepared to promote
and preserve the Agriculture Industry in our state, as well
as several measures to protect the consuming public.
The Committee on Commerce has already done an outstanding
job in meeting an immediate crisis, that of providing malpractice
insurance. They have a solution to recommend to the House that
will solve this problem, which is a concern not only to the public
but also to the medical profession.
The Committee on Criminal Justice is preparing several
measures aimed at the problem of crime in the streets. They
have before them proposals for better ways to enforce the law
and a measure to insure that victims of crimes are compen-
sated.
The Committee on Elections is looking at laws to strengthen
the elections process in Florida, to encourage more people to
participate and to arrive at a more easily understood and more
easily compliable election law.
The Committee on Finance and Taxation is trying to close the
loopholes in our tax laws, as well as to better provide for the
needs of local government. We have a bill recommended by the
Chairman (which I endorse) that would provide for a local op-
tion sales tax to provide funds for local government, while at
the same time providing Ad Valorem Tax relief.



Our Governmental Operations Committee is working hard to
coordinate the various reorganizational plans-doing an excel-



lent job to see that as we reorganize we will do so in a way
that is conducive to efficient, effective operation of state govern-
ment.
Our Judiciary Committee has before it several measures de-
signed to provide for a better method of selecting judges in this
state. I am confident, that before this session is through, we will
have passed major bills to provide for a more qualified judicial
system, as well as better means of determining how to reprimand
and remove those who would violate the trust placed in them by
the voters.
Our Committee on Natural Resources, in addition to the re-
organization and consolidation of those departments charged
with enforcing the environmental laws will also have for us
major legislation to protect both the inland and coastal wetlands,
to insure that the citizens of Florida have an adequate supply
of drinking water and that the chain of marine life upon
which so many of us are dependent is preserved and protected.
The Community Affairs Committee is addressing itself to the
housing needs of our people to provide a boost to the economy
as well as adequate residential dwellings. We will continue a
policy of increasing home rule powers to local government.
The Committee on Regulated Industries and Licensing has
already moved forward with tremendous ideas to try and solve
the problems of the pari-mutuel industry and to try and re-
vitalize the thoroughbred industry. There are proposals that
would do one or two things: provide for a take over by a quasi-
state ageny of the thoroughbred tracks in this state or else
provide for a new system to remove the decisions that have
to be made in this area from the Legislature. In addition they
have before them matters related to the liquor industry to
phase out the quota system of licensing, which has been justly
criticized as subject to corruption and abuse.
The Committee on Retirement, Personnel and Claims, in addi-
tion to the tremendous responsibility they have to determine
claims against the state, are providing for new and innovative
ways to improve the retirement system so important to all
people employed by the State of Florida.
The Appropriations Committee is right on tap-right accord-
ing to schedule-preparing the appropriations bill that we have
charged them to have ready by the beginning of the second
month of this legislative session. Too long this bill has been
used as a hostage to insure that other legislation is passed.
There will no longer be a letter of intent written after the
Legislature adjourns to explain what the Legislature has done.
The bill will be self-explanatory and the vote of the majority in
this Legislature will prevail.
I am tremendously proud of this House, I am proud of each
member and I'm sure you are going to continue to work as hard
and with as much dedication as you have already exhibited. We
are better organized this Session than ever before, there is a
constancy of purpose an eye single to achievement for the
benefit of the people in this State.
You know one of my local critics-the Editor of the Tallahas-
see Democrat, Mr. Malcolm Johnson-has said that the Speaker
and the President are out of their roles in having a specific
program to offer to the Legislature. I agree with him. I don't
think the Speaker should have a program and twist arms to
pass it, but I do think, as a presiding officer of this House-as
the one chosen by you to be the chief administrative officer---
that I have a responsibility to call to your attention matters of
public interest, matters to which I think this Legislature can
and should address itself. To insure that this is done, I have



filed several bills, but I expect the members of this House to
use their own initiative and good judgment in doing the things

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



you think are right. There is nothing sacred about the bills I
have filed. They certainly are not perfect. I hope that the
membership of this House, through the committee system will
take the bill that I have filed on Environmental Reorganization,
for example, and come up with a product that will be acceptable
to the majority of the members of this House, adequately re-
flecting a consensus of the needs of the people of Florida.
The Constitution of the State of Florida, referring to the Of-
fice of the Chief Executive The Governor of the State says
that he "shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed."
Then it says, in reference to his relationship to the Legislature,
that "At least once each regular session the Governor shall
inform the Legislature concerning the condition of the State,
propose such reorganization of the Executive Department as will
promote efficiency and economy, and recommend measures in the
public interest." Those are the prime responsibilities the Chief
Executive has as it relates to this Legislature. His only other
constitutional responsibility is to review the bills that we pass,
and if he sees fit, to veto them. But we have the power to
override that veto by a two-thirds majority. The Governor
should be very careful in the exercise of that power because,
after all, we are the selected representatives of the people elect-
ed to act on their behalf, subject to their review every two years.
This was put into the Constitution wisely so that the people
might be able to review the direction in which this state is
going as frequently as is reasonably possible. The Governor
cannot introduce bills and he has no authority to vote on any
issues before either house of the Legislature. So, it becomes
solely our constitutional duty and responsibility to set the policy
that governs the people in this State.
We are going to do everything possible to insure that when a
bill is presented and voted favorably in this House that it is
clearly understood by all. I would hope that the favorable vote
by the majority will not be overturned because, one man, in his
review, doesn't like it.
Hopefully, all the pros and cons will be thoroughly discussed
before the bills leave these Chambers and nothing will be pre-
sented by the Executive Branch that will change the minds of
our members. When the product leaves this chamber it will re-
flect the thinking of the collected representatives of all Florid-
ians.
Now, I want to talk to you about another power of the Legis-
lature that has been expressively and solely designated to the
House of Representatives by the Constitution. That is the matter
of impeachment.
As sore a subject as that may be, we are nevertheless, right
now, involved in the possible impeachment of two of our
Supreme Court Judges and one member of the Cabinet. It is an
unfortunate thing and none of us like it; but, we are not going
to let the impeachment process interfere with the orderly ad-
ministration of this House. If and when either committee comes
up with a recommendation to this House, then we shall act
accordingly. By that I mean if either committee recommends the
impeachment of either or both or all, of the individuals that
are now being investigated, then we shall at the time publish
Articles of Impeachment, distribute those to the membership and
then, within a matter of a very few days, take up for final
consideration the impeachment. This will be done in an orderly
manner and we shall come to a conclusion as quickly as possible,
recognizing both the rights of the parties and of the people in
this State.
You know there is an odd feeling that pervades Tallahassee
during these 60 days. It becomes almost a make-believe world.



Sometimes things become more urgent in the minds of those of
us who are participants in this process than they really are.



It's good for us to be able to go home on weekends and talk
with our constituents and get away from this heady atmosphere
that becomes so unreal at times.
You know, there is really no single piece of legislation that
we have to pass, including the appropriations bill. We could con-
tinue to operate under last year's appropriation reduced to con-
form with state revenue. That isn't the responsible way but we
could operate without one single bill being passed. Indeed, there
are many in this State that would probably advocate that we
do not do anything and just close up shop immediately.
The point I am trying to make is, we are going to be very
careful this session that what we do is important. That (1) -
we know what we are doing and (2) that we do it well. I want
to promise you as your Speaker that you have a fair opportunity
to comment, amend, pass or kill every piece of legislation that
comes before this House. I want you to feel that whatever we do
has been done properly; that you have had your chance to
affect that piece of legislation. The people in this State have
given us, individually and collectively, the right to speak for
them. They don't want us, except on very rare occasions, to
send back to them a referendum on matters that we should
determine and that they have elected us to determine for them.
So, I urge you to be cautious in trying to attach a referendum to
a piece of legislation when you don't feel like making a decision
in the sunshine of this Chamber.
We have come a long way, we have a long way yet to go,
but when the handkerchief has dropped, signaling the end of
this Legislative Session, I want us all to be able to look back
and say: "I'm proud of what I've done. The people in Florida
have been well served during this period of time in which I have
been working on their behalf. I go home with my head high and
my heart full, proud of a job well done and looking forward to
the next opportunity to serve the people of my State."
Thank you.

Dual References of Bills
The Speaker stated, "During the interim and in consultation
with committee chairmen, the Chair made a number of dual
references. These were published in the Interim Calendar. The
Rule requires confirmation by the House. Instead of each Chair-
man making a separate motion, as the Chairmen are prepared
to do, the Chair asks the consent of the House to the confirma-
tion of these dual references."

Without objection, consent was granted.

Amendment to the Rules
On motion by Mr. Craig, the rules were waived and the
House took up the following amendment to Rule 6.15 which
was offered by Representative Rish as Chairman of a Select
Committee on Impeachment (Supreme Court Justices):
Add 6.15 (w) to read:

/or mental examination by a physician or physicians. The order

Prayer
Prayer by the Reverend Rayburn L. Blair, Pastor of Temple
Baptist Church, Tallahassee:
Father, we thank You that You care about us and, Lord,
I pray today that You would bless each of these men and
women in this House who seek Your will in their deci-
sions and, Lord, in Jesus Name, I ask that You would give
them the courage and the grace to pass only those laws
which are absolutely essential, for we know that too many
laws are burdensome and a hindrance to freedom. We
pray that You would give them wisdom, that they not pass
laws that would contain the seed of future misery; that,
Lord, in Thy Spirit they would, by seeking Your lead-
ership, make laws that would bless the people and that
would please You. We commit this body into your hands,
and may Your Holy Presence abide upon this place and
direct in these affairs. In Jesus Name, we pray. Amen.
