Prayer
Prayer by Representative Beverly B. Burnsed:
Our Dear Heavenly Father, to Whom all hearts are open,
we ask Thy blessings this day for all the citizens of our
great state and for those of us elected to represent them.
As we assemble again, give us the wisdom, the courage, the
patience and the guidance to reach fair and equitable solu-
tions to the needs and concerns facing us. We look to You
and seek Your divine help to lead us in unity, in harmony,
and in progress which will be pleasing to You and to all
those whom we serve.
We would also ask that Your strength be with Representa-
tive Lehman and Representative Rish and their families at
this time, due to the deaths of their fathers.
Today and every day we remember You are with us and
would ask for Your forgiveness and for Your help. Bless
this House, 0 Lord we pray. Amen.

Prayer

Prayer by Speaker pro tempore John L. Ryals:
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for this day, and the
opportunity to be here in service to You and to the people
of this great State. We pray for the presence of Thy guid-
ing hand through this Special Session of the Legislature.
We pray for the blessing of discernment, for wisdom, for a
greater capacity to understand, and for the ability to find
that path that leads to the greatest benefit for the greatest
number of our citizens. We ask Thy Spirit to give us the
individual strength to meet the task before us.
Grant that we will each be possessed with patience, with
the grace of compromise, that we will refrain from selfish
desires and interests, and that we will respect the honor and
beliefs of the citizens of our State. Lord, know that we are
mindful of our many blessings. Know that we love and ap-
preciate the many gifts we enjoy by Thy hand and know
that we understand our stewardship over these things
and that it requires us to protect and preserve the land
and its blessings for our children. We thank You for
these gifts. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

-was read the first time by title and referred to the Com-
mittee on Finance & Taxation.

Parliamentary Inquiry Re Tax Bills
Mr. T. Moore raised the question, by way of parliamentary
inquiry, of why one bill embracing a number of kinds of taxes
could not be considered, much in the same manner as the general
appropriations bill "deals with every kind of subject." Such a
tax package, he continued, would enable the Senate and the
House and, if necessary, a conference committee, to "deal with
whatever issues are within that package." Mr. Moore said
his inquiry was prompted by the Speaker's comment, during
debate, that it would not be germane for a tax bill to encompass
more than one tax. The Speaker said he had felt, as did Mr.
Moore, that approach would be appropriate. However, the
Speaker continued, "we researched it and could find no way
to it under the Constitution and the laws and the Rules, and
so we didn't do it before. We would have done that in the last
session if we had been able to do it. That's the reason we
couldn't get into conference last session, because our bills were
so different."

Mr. Richmond moved the adoption of the substitute amend-
ment. Pending consideration thereof-

Mr. Boyd raised a point of order that the amendment was
out of order since the same amendment had been offered in the
Committee on Finance & Taxation and killed there. The Speaker
ruled the point not well taken since the Rule applies to a bill
killed in committee and not to an amendment killed in com-
mittee.

Mr. Craig moved the previous question on the substitute
amendment, which was agreed to. The question recurred on
Substitute Amendment 1, which was adopted. The vote was:

product.
(2) The tax imposed on tobacco products shall be collected

vanced, through the medium of vending machines where the tax

law be made, directly to the division not later than the 10th day
of each calendar month.
210.55 Discount for collection of tax.-For the prompt and
proper remittance of the tax provided in this part, a wholesale
dealer shall be entitled to receive, as compensation for his
services and expenses, a discount at the rate of 2 9/10 percent of

tobacco products as defined herein.
(2) Each distributing agent shall file with the division a
surety bond from a bonding agent in an amount not greater
than $10,000, nor less than $1,000, as determined by the divi-
sion based on the distributing agent's amount of business.
(3) If such wholesaler dealer or distributing agent is also
required to file a surety bond with the division as surety for
the payment of cigarette taxes as provided in s. 210.08, the
division shall not waive the bond required by this section or
by s. 210.08, but may accept one cumulative surety bond for
the total amount required by the division pursuant to both sec-
tions.

tion.-

products upon which the tax has not been paid upon the public
highways, roads or streets of the state, shall be required to have

of tobacco products received, sold, or delivered within the state
as may be required by the division. The division or its duly
authorized representative is hereby authorized to examine the
books, papers, invoices, and other records, stock of tobacco
products in and upon any premises where the same are placed,
stored, and sold, and equipment of any such distributing agents,
wholesale dealers, or retail dealers, pertaining to the sale and
delivery of tobacco products taxable under this part. To verify
the accuracy of the tax imposed and assessed by this part, each
person is hereby directed and required to give to the division
or its duly authorized representatives the means, facilities, and
opportunity for such examinations as are herein provided for
and required.
(4) (a) All persons who are either wholesale dealers, vending
machine operators, or distributing agents, and agents and
employees of the same, are required to keep daily sales tickets
or invoices of tobacco product sales and it shall be the duty
of said persons to see that each sales ticket and invoice handled
by them or on behalf of them show the correct name and ad-
dress to whom sold and the number of packages or cartons of
each brand sold. It shall also be the duty of said persons to
see that each sales ticket or invoice correctly shows whether
the same is inside or outside of a qualified municipality and if
the sale is made within the limits of a qualified municipality,
the correct name of the municipality must be indicated.
(b) The Division of Beverage shall suspend or revoke the
license of any person who is either a wholesale dealer, vending
machine operator, or distributing agent upon sufficient cause
appearing that the said persons, or their agents or employees,
have failed to keep daily sales tickets or invoices in accordance
with this section.
(c) Before the division shall suspend or revoke the license of

of tobacco products refused and the name of the common carrier
from whom the tobacco products were refused.

products upon which the tax has been paid have been sold and
shipped into another state for sale or use therein, or have become
unfit for use and consumption or unsalable, or have been de-
stroyed, the wholesale dealer involved shall be entitled to a re-
fund of the actual amount of the tax paid with respect to such

forfeiture of a bond when charged with a crime.
(d) The division may refuse to issue a wholesale dealer
or exporter tobacco products permit to any person, firm or
corporation whose permit under the tobacco products or cigar-
ette law has been revoked or to any corporation, an officer
of which has had his permit under the tobacco products or

ployees of the division and also by sheriffs, deputy sheriffs and
police officers during business hours or during any other time
such premises are occupied by the permitted or other persons.
Retail dealers and manufacturers' representatives by dealing
in tobacco products, agree that their places of business or
vehicles transporting tobacco products shall always be subject
to inspection and search without search warrant for the pur-
pose of ascertaining that all provisions of this part are complied
with by authorized employees of the division and also by sher-
iffs, deputy sheriffs and police officers during business hours
or other times when the premises are occupied by the retail
dealer or manufacturers' representatives or other persons.

location for which a wholesale dealer, distributing agent, or ex-
porter permit has been issued. Retail sales of tobacco products

license has been issued. The excise tax on sales made to any
traveling location, such as an itinerant store or industrial cater-
er, shall be paid into the General Revenue Fund unallocated.

for each place of business within the state set forth in his

Communications

The House took up the following vetoed Act of the 1977
Regular Session, which had been transmitted by the Secretary
of State with the objections of the Governor:
CS for CS for HB 1787



Honorable Bruce A. Smathers
Secretary of State
Dear Secretary Smathers:



June 18, 1977



exempting bonds together with income and interest thereon
from taxation; providing severability; providing an effective
date."
This act is meant to provide a mechanism for creating county
housing finance authorities to alleviate a shortage of capital
for housing. I have long supported this laudable goal and, last
year, proposed and supported a constitutional amendment to
grant the State authority to assist in meeting this need. Un-
fortunately, protections against misuse of public authority which
I insisted upon in last year's act have not been included in this
proposal.
The act contains a very broad definition of "housing develop-
ment" which would authorize the use of tax-free public bond
money for virtually any development activity in any income
range, including projects only marginally related to housing.
It is not restricted to the public purpose of providing low and
moderate-income housing. In addition, the act does not con-
tain the protections against misuse of the bond power contained
in the State bond act.
The act appears to violate the provisions of Article VII, Sec-
tion 10 of the Florida Constitution prohibiting the lending of
public credit to private companies. The constitutional principle
that public powers shall not be delegated to private bodies is
also violated. In fact, the act grants great power to the private
lending institution which stands to make a profit from its
activities. This bill even permits the lending institution involved
to make the sole decision whether there will be a public sale
or whether the bond will be sold by private negotiations. This
violation of public policy is further compounded by permitting
the private lending institution to direct the investment of bond
moneys not immediately required for the purpose of the
bond issue.
Admittedly, federal regulation and bond validations in court
provide some protection against misuse; however, it is especially
incumbent upon the State to assure proper use of public tax-
free bonds. I have not only highlighted this need to the Legis-
lature, but also in my meetings in New York with representa-
tives of the national bond market. Since the fiscal problems of
New York became evident, it is absolutely necessary to insure
the proper management of our governmental bonds.
Because of the serious constitutional and public policy prob-
lems I have outlined above, I am withholding my approval of
Committee Substitute for Committee Substitute for House
Bill 1787, Regular Session of the Legislature commencing on
April 5, 1977, and do hereby veto the same.
,Sincerely,
REUBIN ASKEW
Governor

Mr. Martin moved the previous question, which was agreed
to. Mr. Ready suggested the absence of a quorum. A quorum
of 110 Members was present. The question recurred on the pas-
sage of CS for CS for HB 1787, the veto of the Governor to
the contrary notwithstanding. The vote was:



By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under
the provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of
the State of Florida, I hereby withhold my approval of and
transmit to you with my objections Committee Substitute for
Committee Substitute for House Bill 1787, enacted by the Fifth
Legislature of Florida under the Florida Constitution, 1968
Revision, during the Regular Session of 1977, and entitled:
"An act relating to public financing for housing; creating
the "Florida Housing Finance Authority Law"; providing
definitions; authorizing the creation of a housing finance
authority by ordinance; providing for the functioning of such
authorities to alleviate a shortage of housing and capital
for investment in housing; providing for membership, powers,
and duties; authorizing a county to exercise the powers of
such authority until members are appointed; prohibiting mem-
bers and employees from acquiring or having certain in-
terests with respect to a qualifying housing development;
requiring disclosures of interest; providing for removal of
members; authorizing such authorities to make, purchase, and
sell loans for qualifying housing developments; prohibiting
the financing of qualifying housing developments for profit;
authorizing such authorities to issue bonds and limiting
sources from which such bonds are payable; providing for
validation proceedings; providing for remedies of an obligee;

The Honorable Donald L. Tucker, Speaker
I am directed to inform the House of Representatives that
the Senate has admitted for introduction and consideration by
the required constitutional two-thirds vote and adopted-SCR
42-B
-and requests the concurrence of the House therein.
Joe Brown, Secretary

By Senator Scarborough and others-
SCR 42-B-A concurrent resolution establishing legislative
policy regarding the impact federal legislation, regulations, and
funding has on the long-term goals, policies, and programs of
the state.
WHEREAS, the Congress of the United States and federal
executive agencies, through unreasonable prescriptive legisla-
tion and regulation, have undermined the basic concept of the
reserved powers of the states enumerated in the Tenth Amend-
ment to the Constitution of the United States by dictating to the
states how certain program services are to be provided, and
WHEREAS, it is not the proper role of the Congress of the
United States to dictate how each individual state shall pro-
vide the measure of certain services to its citizens, and
WHEREAS, as the states become more sophisticated and tech-
nically capable, increased flexibility is needed in the administra-
tion of new and existing programs, and
WHEREAS, existing federal legislation and regulations are
often overly complex and restrictive, limiting efforts of states
and localities to develop innovative systems for delivering
quality services to meet unique local needs, and









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



WHEREAS, the legal, historical, and constitutional role of
the states compels each to assume the ultimate responsibility
for establishing and administering certain long-term goals,
policies, and programs which meet the unique needs of its
citizens, and
WHEREAS, in recognition of the serious consequences which
federal legislation, regulation, and financial assistance may have
on certain long-term goals, policies, and programs of the state,
each new federal program, or federal program heretofore estab-
lished but requiring change in established legal and/or financial
commitment, shall be reviewed by the Florida Legislature to
determine the anticipated policy and financial impact of the
new or changed federal requirement, and
WHEREAS, state agencies may not lawfully adhere to the
requirements of any federal program, or any part thereof,
where a determination has been made that the requirements of
that program require legal or financial commitments in conflict
with the long-term goals, policies, and programs of the state
as expressed in state law, and
WHEREAS, the current legislative and regulatory language
of certain federal programs would force Florida, which has
established quality programs to meet the needs of its citizens,
to change program policy and provide for the delivery of serv-
ices in a manner contrary to existing state policy, statute, and
program structure, NOW, THEREFORE,
Be It Resolved by the Senate of the State of Florida, the House
of Representatives Concurring:
That each state agency shall develop strategies for deter-
mining its standing and eligibility with regard to receiving
federal funds available under new, reauthorized, and currently
authorized federal programs, which shall include, but not be
limited to, the following:
(1) Where the state's programs for providing services are
determined to be in substantial compliance with the standards,
goals, and intent of particular federal programs, applications
and plans which so state shall be submitted to the appropriate
federal agency for funds available under existing federal pro-
grams when a determination is made to participate.
(2) Plans submitted thereunder shall be in conformity with
state laws applicable to each state agency.
(3) Should any state plan, or any part thereof, not be ap-
proved by the Federal Government for reasons of nonconformity
with existing statutory or regulatory requirements of federal
law, the federal disapproval along with recommendations for
legislative action shall be submitted by the affected state agency
to the appropriate substantive committees and the appropria-
tions committees of both houses of the Legislature within 45
days of such disapproval.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that copies of this resolution
be distributed to the Governor, members of the Cabinet, mem-
bers of the Florida Congressional Delegation, the legislative
bodies of each state, the National Governors' Conference, the
Council of Chief State School Officers, the National Associa-
tion of State Boards of Education, the National Conference of
State Legislatures, the Education Commission of the States,
and whomsoever may express an interest in or benefit from
information concerning this issue.

On motion by Mrs. Bloom, agreed to by the required Con-
stitutional two-thirds vote, SCR 42-B, contained in the above
message, was admitted for introduction, the Speaker having
ruled that the measure was outside the purview of the Governor's
call.

SCR 42-B was read the first time by title. On motions by Mrs.
Bloom, the rules were waived and the concurrent resolution was
read the second time in full, adopted and under the rule im-
mediately certified to the Senate.

The Honorable Donald L. Tucker, Speaker
I am directed to inform the House of Representatives that

Section 196.032, Florida Statutes, is amended to read:
196.032 Replacement funds; trust funds; annual payments.-
(1) There is created the Local Government Additienal4 Heme-
stead Exemption Trust Fund, to be administered by the Depart-
ment of Revenue.
(2) Each qualified county, municipality, or special district
is entitled to receive an annual payment from the fund in an
amount equal to the revenue lost as a result of the additional
exemptions provided in s. 196.031(3) and the reduction of in-
ventory assessment provided in s. 196.511 as amended in this
act. Revenue lost shall be calculated by multiplying 96 percent
of the additional exemption granted in s. 196.031(3) and the
reduction of inventory assessment provided in s. 198.511 as
amended by this act by the applicable millage. A qualified
local government is one which either:

year.

(3) Not later than 30 days after the application deadline of
each year, the department shall authorize payment to qualified
local governments from the trust fund as follows:
(a) Qualified local governments for which the department
has received the data necessary to compute the amount of reve-
nue lost in the current fiscal year's ad valorem tax levy as a
result of the additional exemptions shall receive payment in
the amount of that loss. The department is authorized to make
payments on a prorated basis if it deems the balance in the
trust fund insufficient to make projected payments.
(b) Qualified local governments for which the department
has not received sufficient data to compute the amount of
revenue so lost shall receive payment in an amount equivalent
to 85 percent of the replacement funds received the previous
year from the trust fund. The department shall make full pay-
ment, or the proration if the fund is being prorated, upon re-
ceipt of sufficient data. F-es po-spese e mking payment be

(4) Amounts by which actual payments to any qualified local
government are less than the amount finally determined as the
revenue lost from that year's ad valorem tax levy as the result
of the additional homestead tax exemptions provided in s.
196.031(3) and the reduction of inventory assessment provided
in s. 198.511, as amended by this act shall constitute a first
priority charge against the following year's distribution from
the trust fund. Such deficiency shall be made as soon as funds
are available. At the end of each state fiscal year all funds not
distributed from the Local Government Exemption Trust Fund
shall revert to the General Revenue Fund.
Section 5. Section 199.292(4), Florida Statutes, is amended
to read:
199.292 Disposition of intangible personal property taxes;
appropriations for expenses of assessment and collection;
county sharing.
(4) An amount equal to 55 percent of the total net intangible
taxes collected shall be transferred to the Revenue Sharing
Trust Fund for counties in the month following collection. wow-
