reorganization of the executive department as will promote
efficiency and economy, and recommend measures in the public
interest."
I am here today to fulfill this constitutional mandate.
I am here today to work with you, and to ask you to work
with me, in the service of the people of Florida.
But the condition of our state, the circumstances of our
government, and the imperatives of the public interest all
compel us to look beyond just the few short weeks of this
session if we truly seek to serve the people.
For this reason, the agenda I offer today is not merely an
agenda for Florida in 1979. It is an agenda which anticipates
the challenges of the next decade.
And the philosophy of government which gives life to this
agenda is not the philosophy of yesterday. It is the philosophy
of tomorrow, tempered by time and instructed by the wishes
of those we would serve.
I offer an agenda for the 1980s, and I propose a philosophy
of creative restraint.
The challenges of the coming decade will be unlike those
which have been dominant in Florida since the end of World
War II. The transformation of Florida from a remote haven
of beaches and sunshine into a thriving metropolitan state has
been reflected in a similar transformation of Florida's state
government.
We have become accustomed to changes in our government.
So much so that many of us have come to expect new laws,
new reforms, new spending each year.
But the best preparation for the 1980s will not be found in a
commitment solely to new laws, new reforms, new spending.
In some instances, such changes are still needed, and needed
desperately. But, for the most part, now is the time to con-
solidate and assess more than thirty years of changes as we
prepare to enter the new decade.
Now is the time to take a long, hard look at the laws we
already have-to make certain they are working.
Now is the time to examine the reforms of recent years
carefully and critically-to see if they have accomplished our
purposes.
And now is the time to count every tax dollar we are spend-
ing-to determine if the people of Florida are receiving their
money's worth.
Now is the time to anticipate the needs of tomorrow, even as
we respond to the needs of today.
And this can best be done through creative restraint.
By creative restraint I do not mean neglect. I do not mean
inaction.
I would never advocate a government of inattention. I would
never favor a government of unconcern.
The possibilities of government are many. The activities of
government in Florida have helped our people lead better and
happier lives.
But the limitations of government are many as well, and
these limitations must not be forgotten.
We must learn when to act and when not to act. As never
before, we must weigh the actions of government against the



effects those actions will have on the initiative, the spontaneity,
the imagination, and the opportunities of the people.
We must resist the temptation to be all things to all people.
We must have the discipline to realize that some issues are
best resolved by local governments and other issues are not
proper for consideration by government at all.
But we should not hesitate to act-and act forcefully-when
the action of state government is needed to protect the health,
the safety, and the welfare of our people, and when we act, we
must act boldly and creatively, cutting always through the
creeping inertia of government and challenging constantly the
prevailing dogma about how things should be done.
Creative restraint is a philosophy of pragmatism in pursuit
of the common good.
Through the exercise of this philosophy of government in
Florida, we can foster competition, allowing free enterprise
to forge a better economy.
We can encourage independence, self-reliance, and self-
respect among our people.
We can promote productivity by placing increased emphasis
on the worth of the individual and the value of work.
We can put an end forever to the widespread belief that gov-
eernment's only answer to the problems we face as a people
is to tax and spend and regulate.
And most of all, we can unchain the idealism and the inno-
vative spirit of our people, inspiring their renewed commitment
and participation in fulfilling the agenda which awaits.
Creative restraint has many dimensions, and all these di-
mensions are mirrored in the agenda I offer today, an agenda
which is written in the lines and echoed in the spirit of my
recommended budget.
My recommended budget is the basic blueprint of our agenda
for the eighties, establishing specific priorities for spending
and policy-making in the next two years and distinct guide-
lines for the course of state government in the years to follow,
It is a balanced budget, as our constitution requires, pro-
posing no more in state spending than we will receive in state
revenue.
But it is a dynamic budget as well, for it recognizes the
inevitable influence of the forces which will shape Florida in
the eighties.
An inflationary economy.
A growing and shifting population.
Increasing energy demands couples with decreasing energy
supplies.
Mounting public anger and frustration at government which
appears wasteful and unresponsive.
These are the forces we face in the coming decade, and these
forces cannot and must not be ignored. We must not allow them
to shape us without actively seeking to shape them-now and
in the years ahead.
The issues before us are many and pressing in this session.
I will actively support measures which I will not discuss in
detail today.
But the forces shaping the approaching decade deserve our
immediate attention. They demand the most from us in the
exercise of creative restraint.

An Inflationary Economy
No problem we face concerns the people more than inflation.
Inflation drains the spirit of our people. It hurts us all, but
most of all it hurts the poor and those who are on fixed in-
comes, robbing them of the value of the few dollars they have.
The very survival of our free economy depends upon our
success in the struggle against inflation.
There is no better example of creative restraint than in the
responsibilities we share in confronting inflation.
Florida has been in the forefront of the inflation battle. We
must remain there.
I have recommended that state wage and price increases be
held to less than seven percent in the next two years-well
within the president's guidelines for combating inflation.
We must not exceed these ceilings.
Recently, the state reached contract settlements with three
unions representing more than 46,000 state employees. These
wage settlements are within the president's guidelines.
If these state workers who are directly affected by these
voluntary controls can agree to abide by them, then so can we.
Our first priority in fighting inflation must be to increase
productivity.
In recent years, productivity throughout the United States
has been decreasing. We must exercise leadership in govern-
ment through creative restraint in an effort to reverse this
trend.
State government has a dual role to play in increasing pro-
ductivity.
First, government can improve productivity by the ways it
regulates.
By eliminating needless governmental restrictions, we can
improve productivity in private enterprise and help stop rising
prices.
Second, government can improve productivity by improving
the efficiency of government itself.
The onrush of inflation can be slowed by the elimination of
wasteful programs and the use, wherever practical, of private
initiative to deliver public services.

My recommended budget would help improve productivity
by increasing the use of private enterprise in the performance
of public services.

In particular, my budget calls for the increased use of private
businesses in transportation design and routine road mainte-
nance.

Productivity in our governmental services can be further in-
creased by adoption of a modern personnel management system.
We must fix management responsibility clearly on the managers
in our government.

And increased productivity can also be achieved through re-
organization of the Department of Administration. The executive
planning and budget functions of this department should be
shifted to the governor's office to eliminate needless duplication
and assure consistency in the implementation of state policies.

We also should adopt safeguards which will help us prevent
financial crisis in Florida's cities and counties.

To attain our highway safety goals, I recommend that 150
additional Florida highway patrol troopers be placed on the
roads of Florida. I recommend that funds be provided for in-
tensive enforcement during holidays and other peak driving
periods.

I am confident that many more Florida drivers will live to
enjoy the 1980s if these recommendations are adopted.

Under the budget, too, the size of state government would
actually be reduced. I have recommended decreases in the num-
ber of state employees amounting to 27 fewer in the first year
and 232 fewer in the second year of the biennium. These reduc-
tions will move us very near the goal of having state em-
ployees total less than one percent of the state population.

This is consistent with another goal which is reflected in
the budget-restricting the per capital growth of state spending
to less than the rate of inflation.

Under this budget, in 1979-80, state spending will increase
at only seven percent per capita-considerably less than the
current rate of inflation, and, in 1980-81, this figure will be
cut almost in half, with state spending increasing just 3.7 percent
per capital.



OF REPRESENTATIVES April 3, 1979

Under my recommended budget, 18 duplicative, unnecessary,
and ineffective programs would be transferred, changed, or
abolished.
I do not mean to imply in this recommendation that these
programs are without value. The issue involved in each in-
stance is whether the value received is worth the cost-and
whether greater value could be received at the same or less
cost by other methods.
If we clearly understand our goals, the proper question is:
Is this program not merely an adequate way but rather the
best way of meeting our goals for Florida?
The twelve-year-old auto inspection program is a prime
example.
It is symbolic of the need for creative restraint.
I propose abolishing this program.
I do not contend that the auto inspection program is without
value.
However, far more accidents would have been avoided and
lives saved, and at less cost to the state, if we had spent the
money which pays for the inspections on other safety measures
during the past twelve years.
I am not alone in my skepticism about auto inspection
programs.
Kentucky, Idaho, New Mexico, and Wyoming have all abolished
their inspection programs and adopted other means of assuring
highway safety.
California, which has more people and more cars than any
other state, does not have a periodic inspection program. High-
way checks, particularly on older cars, are used effectively in
that state.

A recent federal study indicated that enforcement of the
55-mile per hour speed limit is 100 times as cost effective in
preventing highway deaths as auto inspections.

The truth is, the vast majority of highway accidents and
deaths are caused by speeders, drunks, and poor drivers, and
not by faulty vehicles.










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



A major source of inflation in Florida, as elsewhere, is the
rising cost of health care. My budget proposes a strong leader-
ship role for state government in expanding health mainte-
nance organizations as a practical option for consumers.
For the first time, H.M.O.s will be available for state em-
ployees and their dependents. Moreover, my proposal provides
a financial incentive to state employees to use H.M.O.s by estab-
lishing a higher level of state contribution for prepaid care than
for conventional health insurance.
Making H.M.O.s an attractive alternative for state employees
would do much to help make prepaid health care available for
everyone.
Our commitment to the fight against inflation compels us
also to make certain that government regulation is not used in
ways which will increase prices. I advocate one simple principle
of regulation: The only proper purpose of governmental inter-
vention in the marketplace is the attainment of public benefit.
Regulation must never be used for private gain.
We must consider in this session whether to reenact legis-
lation which allows state government to regulate 25 professions
and occupations in Florida.
The Sunset Law which commands this review of the state's
regulatory agencies must be used in a manner consistent with
the philosophy of creative restraint.
We must answer difficult questions in this session about
whether the regulatory process has been perverted for private
purposes. We must determine whether it has been abused in
fostering exclusionary practices and anti-competitive prices.
Where it appears that the regulatory power of the state has
been captured and manipulated by those who are supposedly
being regulated, we have a responsibility to act to free the
victims of such regulation.
I believe we must make the Department of Professional and
Occupational Regulation a stronger, a more effective advocate
of consumer interests in Florida.
We want to include the members of occupations and pro-
fessions within the regulatory process so that we can take
advantage of their talents in their respective fields.
But where the administration of discipline and the mainte-
nance of a competitive marketplace are concerned, the public's
interest and perspective must be paramount.
But we must be cautious in advocating increased govern-
mental regulation on any grand scale. Where deregulation
would further the public interest by promoting a freer and
more competitive market, then government regulation should
be diminished or abolished altogether.
We must show restraint by never regulating simply for the
sake of regulating. The benefits of regulation must always
be weighed against the costs.
In this respect, I invite your consideration of the 1978 law
limiting truck weights on our highways. Both the Department
of Transportation and the Department of Agriculture have
presented evidence that the economic costs of this law far
exceed the benefits we receive in preventing damage to highway
surfaces. Modification or repeal of this law may be needed.

Fundamental to our concern for inflation is a new perspec-
tive on state government's fiscal obligations. In the past, many
have considered these obligations as discharged when the needs
of state government were met within constitutional require-
ments. This self-centered standard alone is no longer acceptable.



This budget recognizes that state government has a broader
responsibility to act positively in securing the economic well-
being of the people. In no area will we be judged more closely
by them in this respect than in our commitment and our actions
in the fight against inflation.

Growth and Shifts in State Population
Since 1970, the population of Florida has increased by two
million persons. Florida is now the eighth most populous state
in the nation. By the turn of the next century, some experts
expect us to rank fourth nationally in population.
And the population of Florida is not only growing, it is shift-
ing as well. The total population of Florida has increased 32
percent since 1970. The percentage of persons over 65 years
of age in our population has increased 63 percent during those
same eight years.
By the turn of the century, it is estimated that one-fourth
of the people in Florida will be over 65.
As the population of our state grows, and as it grows older,
there will be increased demands for creative restraint.
There is a reservoir of talent, devotion, and experience among
Florida's senior citizens which can be used for the benefit of
our state.
To this end, we must do all we can to see that the oldest and
wisest among us remain as independent and as self-sufficient
as possible.
I am asking for improvements in community service pro-
grams for the elderly which will allow them to remain in their
homes and with their families and will help them as well to
remain productive members of their communities.
My recommended budget contains $17.1 million in appropria-
tions for such basic services as hot meals, visits by nurses aides,
and help with housework. Such essential services can help older
Floridians lead useful lives in peace, dignity, and comfort.
In approving money for this important program, we will be
practicing the purest form of creative restraint. For we will be
investing tax dollars now to save them in the future.
If we do not spend money now on community care, we will
spend more money later on nursing home care and other forms
of institutionalized treatment, and the price of waiting will be
greater than mere dollars. We will also pay the price of human
self-respect by shutting older Floridians away when they could
just as easily remain a vital part of the life of our community.
Basic to the needs of our senior citizens are such essentials
as eyeglasses, hearing aids, and dentures. I am recommending
that these basic necessities be provided for medicaid recipients
in our state.

The continued growth in Florida's population will require
continued improvements in other social services as well.

I am recommending that we spend $2 million to continue de-
creasing the population of our mental health institutions and to
provide preventive treatment for adolescents and children.

In retardation, too, we are recommending more modern fa-
cilities for the outmoded Sunland hospitals in Tallahassee and
Orlando.

I am recommending an increase from 85 percent of need to
100 percent of need in subsistence payments to poor single
parents with dependent children.



April 3, 1979

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



And I am also asking for substantial increases in spending
for prenatal and neonatal programs so that retardation can be
prevented before and during infancy and institutionalization
avoided later in childhood.
During the 1970's, we have witnessed an unparalleled increase
in the population of our state prisons and an equivalent com-
mitment to additional prison construction. To avoid a repetition
of these years, the principal of creative restraint must direct
us in the next decade toward greater use of probation and
parole, pretrial diversion, conversion of existing facilities, con-
tracting, community-based corrections, and other appropriate
alternates to continued prison construction. Initiatives in these
directions are contained in the recommended budget.
No matter what the demands of the moment, and no matter
what our other concerns, we must never hesitate to fulfill the
greatest obligation we have in state government-that of edu-
cating our children.
In no area will the changes of the 1980's be more apparent
than in education. For more than three decades the primary
challenge for our schools, colleges and universities was to pre-
pare each year for a new influx of students. No activity ab-
sorbed more of our resources, energy or time than the manage-
ment of growth.
Now suddenly, the growth has ended.

Enrollment is declining in our public schools as a percentage
of state population.

In 1960, 40 percent of Florida's population was under 21, by
1980, only 30 percent will be under 21.

Since 1970, Florida's population overall has increased 32
percent, while the school-age population below 14 years of age
has increased only five percent.

There were 25,000 fewer children in the public schools this
year than last. This is a trend which will continue throughout
the next decade.

The "baby boom" of the postwar years has long since passed.
And this is a fact which can no longer be ignored by state
government.

At the top of our agenda item on education is the need to
respond to these changes.

This decline in school-age population has been the principal
reason why so many schools, colleges, and universities in Flor-
ida have had to cut back on quality programs.

Our funding formulas are based on constant growth. With
declining enrollments, revenues to schools have decreased while
costs have continued to increase.

If we are to build a stable financial foundation for education
in the 1980s, it is imperative that our funding formulas provide
adequate support for quality programs without the requirement
of unrelenting growth in enrollments.

The first step toward this stability is for the state govern-
ment to assume a greater share of the tax burden for our
public schools.

Increasing the share of state support for education is not a
new state policy. This goal has been pursued in the past as a
method of achieving a greater equality of educational oppor-
tunity for school children throughout Florida. Now we have an
added reason to pursue this goal.



Currently, the state share of the cost of public education is
59 percent. Under my recommended budget, the state would
assume 68 percent of the cost of public schools in 1979-80 and
71 percent of the cost in 1980-81.
And greater state participation in education finance should
be accompanied by increasing local control of education policy.
We must continue to resist the tendency to dictate from Talla-
hassee and have confidence in the judgment of students, parents,
teachers, and administrators in our local communities.
The state role in education should be that of concentrating
on student performance, setting statewide standards, and moni-
toring those standards closely. This is a new role for the state
government and a pioneering role nationally, but the results so
far show that this approach is working.
On the statewide student assessment test, Florida's eleventh
graders scored impressive gains in 1978 over 1977. These gains
were most apparent in writing skills. Black students made dra-
matic increases in test scores in all grades. And, overall, Florida
high school students are doing better on college entrance exam-
inations than students throughout the south, showing an in-
crease in scores even as national scores drop.
Money totaling $28.6 million in 1979-80 and $30.9 million in
1980-81 is recommended to continue and expand the compensa-
tory education program for teaching basic skills to under-
achieving children.
We must be prepared to make a commitment to excellence
in education in Florida. We must not settle for less than
the best in public education at any level. For we will do so at
the cost of our children's future-and of the future of our state.
Overall, my budget would provide for an increase in statewide
per pupil funding of our elementary and secondary public edu-
cation program of almost 16 percent over two years. Spending
per pupil would be increased from $990 per student to $1,143
per student.
For community colleges, I am asking for an additional $44.5
million over the next two years-an increase of more than 16
percent over the current spending per student.
And I am asking for an increase of $70.2 million in spending
for our state university program-an increase of 19.6 percent
over two years.
I am asking also for $150,000 in 1979-80 to pay for a study
between now and the next regular session which will assess
the impact of the emerging forces of the eighties on higher
education. I am particularly interested in having this study rec-
ommend new ways to finance our community colleges and uni-
versities which are not dependent on enrollment.
Also included is a special appropriation of $10 million in
1980-81 improving the excellence of the programs in our state
universities. One goal of higher education should be a program
of national distinction in each major academic discipline some-
where in Florida.
It is important as well that we employ more 'fully the poten-
tial of our private colleges and universities in Florida by con-
tracting with them more often to provide services to the state.
The dramatic shifts in Florida's population also provide chal-
lenges for our economy. Economic development is an important
item on our agenda for the eighties.
Even as our school-age population growth has moderated as
a proportion of our overall population, the number of young
adults in Florida's population has increased dramatically. The
age group between 20 and 29 has increased 47 percent since



6-



April 3, 1979










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



1970 as compared to only a 32 percent increase in population
overall. These young people need jobs. They need to know that
opportunities still exist for them in a land and in a state which
have always taken pride in offering opportunities.
In the latest unemployment figures-those for 1977-teen-
age unemployment in Florida was 21.5 percent. This was almost
three times the rate of the over-20 age group, and non-white
teenage unemployment was an alarming 40.4 percent.
We must provide an atmosphere for opportunity in Florida
by broadening and diversifying our economy. In recent years,
we have made substantial strides toward this end, but there is
much more we can do.
One way to encourage economic development in Florida would
be by reforming our current system of worker's compensation.
We can no longer tolerate a compensation system which has
the fifth highest rate in the nation but ranks only 37th in
benefits.
I commend the legislators who have worked so diligently on
this issue and urge you to approve a measure which would
protect the rights of injured workers while at the same time
remove a needless barrier to economic development.
My top priority for the department of labor is a compre-
hensive review of the manner in which the worker's compen-
sation law is administered.
Together, we must see that the purposes of this law are more
fully achieved. Injured workers must receive the full measure
of benefits they are justly due without extended and expensive
litigation.
I also recommend the creation of an office of business assist-
ance in the office of the governor to be directed by Lieutenant
Governor Wayne Mixson.
I have asked too for an increase over two years of $1.9 million
in the budget of the Division of Tourism and $1.6 million for
the Division of Economic Development.
This money will be well spent, bringing returns far in excess
of our investments. We must protect our tourist industry, and
we must work to attract new industries to our state.

In seeking economic development, we should not neglect the
rural areas of Florida. We should, for example, continue the
state's rural housing loan fund.

Recently, the state signed an agreement with the federal
government to create closer cooperation in the investment of
$250 million in rural improvement funds. This too will assist
the cause of economic development.

As our population grows in Florida, as our state becomes
more urban and more industrial, the obligation we share of
protecting Florida's vital natural resources becomes all the
more compelling.

We must continue to protect our endangered lands, our
beaches, and our precious water supplies.

At this time, we need no more environmental laws. But we
do need to make certain that the laws we have work as they
should. In this area, as in others, we need to cultivate the
philosophy of creative restraint.

Of utmost importance in this session is the need to redesig-
nate the green swamp and the Florida Keys as areas of critical
state concern. We must correct the deficiency in the Land and
Water Management Act of 1972 which caused the Supreme



April 3, 1979



OF REPRESENTATIVES 7

Court of Florida to declare a portion of that statute uncon-
stitutional.
The legislative standards by which future areas of critical
concern may be designated must be clearly delineated and
delegated, preserving for the executive branch the authority
to make such designations.
I am asking also for $11.4 million over the next two years
to protect our water resources in Florida and for additional
positions to manage our state lands and parks.
It is time to lay the Cross Florida Barge Canal to rest.
I support congressional efforts to deauthorize this project.
The legislature should proceed with the proposals before it to
complement congressional deauthorization, and provide for
orderly disposition of the canal lands and repayment of tax
monies raised by the affected counties for the canal project.
One rarely discussed but significant aspect of our population
shift in Florida is the effect it will have on the 1980 census.
An accurate count in Florida will mean more federal revenue
sharing funds, more funds for transportation, more funds for
minorities, and more representation in congress.
For these reasons, and more, I am committed to working
with the federal government to assure that every Floridian is
counted by the census takers.
And the occasion of the census next year will give rise to
other compelling issues which will shape the eighties in
Florida.
The legislature will be reapportioned in 1982. As we prepare
for reapportionment, we should act now to assure single-
member legislative districts for Floridians in the next decade.
Single-member districts would provide fairer representation
for minority groups and move our government closer to the
people it serves. Each individual citizen would have a single
identifiable representative to whom he could take his concerns.
I urge you to approve a joint resolution placing the issue of
single-member districts on the ballot for a vote of the people
in the General Election in November 1980.
And I urge you to provide as well for an independent
apportionment commission to establish the new congressional
and legislative districts which the 1980 census will require.
Energy Shortages and Increased Demands
We live in a time not only of increasing population, but also
of increasing concern about energy. This concern is not likely
to disappear soon.
As a safeguard against these uncertainties, I have proposed
the creation of a stabilization fund of $135.1 million which
could be used if necessary as a means of softening the impact
of shortages on the people of Florida. I will submit further
details of this stabilization program soon.
Energy issues must be included on the agenda of the
eighties in Florida.
We recently enacted a new statewide energy code. We have
taken steps too to diminish energy use in state buildings. I
am committed to continued strict enforcement of the 55-
mile per hour speed limit on our highways.
It is my intention as governor to work closely and coopera-
tively, but forcefully, with the federal government to assure
that no energy plan which is adopted by the congress or by
the president's administration is unfair to Florida.










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



In this respect, I am particularly concerned by efforts to-
ward reform which would serve only to disrupt the tourist
industry on which Florida relies so heavily.
I have already met with the president and with his staff
to express my opposition to any and all recommendations that
would close gas stations on the weekends in Florida.
I am persuaded that this is the correct position to take not
only as a Floridian, but as an American. For such a plan would
save little gasoline and would be harmful to our already
vulnerable economy.
The energy crisis is real. The oil shortages are real, and our
commitment to confronting the crisis and the shortages must
also be real-and realistic.
We must take all possible positive steps, however small, to
prevent a repetition of the events of 1973. And we must begin
working now to assure that in the coming decade we are not
hindered as we have been in the past decade by the constraints
of energy shortages.
One positive step we should take in this session is the
approval of $50.3 million I have recommended in my budget
as the state's share for construction of mass transit in Dade
County. This is an increase of more than $40 million over the
next two years.
In addition, I have proposed spending $450,000 to pay for
early engineering for mass transit in Jacksonville.
These appropriations would, in the long run, help free
Floridians from the automobile and ease the impact of any
possible energy shortages.
My recommended budget also includes additional state match-
ing funds to accelerate construction of the interstate highway
system in Florida. With these funds, Florida will be able to
let an additional $163 million in interstate highway construction
contracts during the coming two years in addition to our normal
share of $235 million.

Efficient and Responsive Government
It should not be necessary to remind any member of the
legislature of the anger and the frustration the people of
Florida feel with wasteful and unresponsive government.

This anger and this frustration must be considered as we
write our agenda for the eighties. For this agenda must have
within it the means of restoring the trust and the confidence
of the people in their government.

If there is a prime example of the anger of the people at the
unresponsiveness of government, it is crime, and especially
organized crime.

Organized crime is an ugly and frightening reality in Florida,
and it is a most menacing reality in the flourishing traffic in
illegal drugs.

At present, the potential profits are enormous for traffickers
in illegal drugs. And the risks of loss are few.

Moreover, the drug smuggling which abounds in the waters
and in the skies of our state is directly related to other crimes.
And those other crimes are also increasing.

The latest crime figures for Florida were released just last
week by the Department of Law Enforcement. For the first time
in five years, all seven major crime categories showed an in-
crease last year over the previous year.



Murder was up 10.7 percent. Auto thefts were up 12.5 per-
cent. Aggravated assaults were up 14 percent.
At the heart of these and other increases is organized crime,
feeding on drug smuggling and other illicit pursuits and fun-
neling the funds from these activities into a growing wave of
crime.
In Dade County alone during the past six months, there have
been 59 murders. The Federal Drug Enforcement Administration
reported that more than 40 of those murders were connected with
illegal drug dealings.
If we strike against drug trafficking, we strike at the very
spinal cord of increased crime in Florida.
Our Constitution makes the Governor the Chief Law Enforce-
ment Officer of the state and, in that capacity, I am committed
to doing everything I conceivably can to halt illicit drug smug-
gling.
We must start by imposing mandatory sentences of up to
15 years for those convicted of trafficking in large quantities
of illegal drugs.
We must refuse to allow convicted smugglers out on bail
while they are awaiting the outcome of appeals.
And-in an effort to discover and prosecute the criminals
who actually run these smuggling rings-we must give the
courts the power to set aside these mandatory sentences for
those who are willing to testify against the masterminds of
the smuggling operations.
In addition to the $46.6 million I am asking for the Department
of Law Enforcement over the next two years, I am also asking
for $6.2 million to provide additional financial support for
prosecutions and investigations in the fight against organized
crime.
I am asking for an additional $3.8 million in 1979-80 and an
additional $1.1 million in 1980-81 to provide more staff for state
attorneys and public defenders.
And I am asking too for $5.6 million to give new financial
means to local state attorneys in developing tough prosecution
teams.

We have taken much needed steps in recent years to restore
the trust of the people in their government by enacting strong
ethics laws.
In 1976, more than 79 percent of the Floridians who cast their
ballots voted in favor of the Sunshine Amendment to the Flor-
ida Constitution which requires elected constitutional officers
to disclose their financial interests.
Both the Florida Supreme Court and the United States Su-
preme Court have now upheld the Sunshine Amendment. The
time has come to enact the laws that are needed to make that
amendment work as it should.

We can also promote the people's trust by showing that we
believe in equal treatment under the law for all our people.

The time has come also to do our part in amending the United
States Constitution by including within that document a simple
but necessary assertion: "Equality of rights under the law shall
not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state
on account of sex."

It is important that the public trust be sustained not only
in the executive and legislative branches of our government,
but in our courts as well.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSI



Toward this end, I urge you to adopt my recommendation for
public financing of election campaigns for county and circuit
judges.
It is vital that our judicial officers be of the highest caliber.
To attract and keep such jurists, I have made the maximum
recommendations for pay raises for the judiciary, I urge you
to approve those recommendations.
Tax Reform

Central to the spirit of my recommended budget is the means
I have chosen to distribute the $476.4 million in revenue surplus
with which we will conclude the current fiscal year.
This method of distribution is yet another example of creative
restraint.
For we have resisted the temptation to use this money for
new state spending-spending which would necessarily recur in
later years when adequate money might not be available.
We have decided instead to place restraints on new spending
and use the surplus creatively in ways that will provide ade-
quate reserves as a safeguard against hard times.
Of the total surplus, $168.8 million will be spent on capital
and other non-recurring projects. But most of the surplus will
be held in reserve.
My recommended budget includes a working capital reserve
of $172.5 million. This reserve fund is a savings account for
state government-available if we need it in order to avoid
painful budget cuts in the event of a recession. This fund is in
addition to the stabilization reserve of $135.1 million.
All told, this recommended reserve fund totals $307.6 million.
Knowing as we do the uncertainties of economic events, we
should appropriate not a dollar less for these precautionary
purposes.
In addition to the surplus with which we will end the current
year, we anticipate an additional $600 million in recurring
revenue over the next two years as a result of the continued
growth of our economy.
To invest all this new revenue in new spending would only add
to inflation. For this reason, we have chosen once again to
exercise restraint and to respond to the opportunity this new
revenue presents in creative ways.
There are some lessons to be learned from 1978 as we ap-
proach the issue of tax reform.
Some would argue that we should do nothing-that our tax
system is acceptable as it is.
I would invite them to recall what happened in California
when the political leadership of the state abdicated on the
issue of taxes and the issue was resolved at the polls through
proposition 13.
Others would argue that the need for tax reform is so urgent
that it must be achieved immediately.
I would invite them to recall what happened here in Florida
when the Constitution Revision Commission submitted ill-
advised and ill-considered proposals for tax reform to the
voters last November.
We need not only a commitment to tax reform, but also
an intelligent plan for achieving it. And that is what I am
offering to you in the legislature and to the people of Florida.
For many years, I have been committed to the cause of tax
reform in this state. For twelve long years, I worked hard in



April 3, 1979



E OF REPRESENTATIVES 9

behalf of comprehensive tax reform as a member of the legis-
lature.
I sought tax relief for renters.
I sought reform in the structure of beverage taxes.
I sought tax relief for mobile home owners.
I sought tax relief for the elderly and for all those on fixed
incomes.
I sought the creation of a reform commission to study our
entire tax structure in the hope of making it fairer for all con-
cerned.
I have never wavered in my support of the cause of genuine
tax reform for Florida. I never will.
As Governor of Florida, I remain as committed as ever to
true tax reform in the public interest and I am absolutely de-
termined that such reform will be achieved during my term in
this office.
But I am convinced that such reform can only be accom-
plished through application of creative restraint.
Genuine tax reform can only become a reality following a
careful and considered scrutiny of the entire tax structure of
this state.
This is why I have appointed the tax reform commission.
Even now, that commission is preparing recommendations
for meaningful tax reform which will be submitted to a special
session of the Legislature I will call in December.
At that time, when we have all the information we need,
when we have all the alternatives in hand, we should consider
the overall issue of tax reform.
And at that time, we should adopt sweeping proposals for
lasting reform in the form of Constitutional Amendments. And
these proposals should be placed before the people for a vote on
their merits in the statewide presidential primary election in
March 1980.

I applaud those of you who have shown interest in the over-
all issue of reform. I look forward to working with you in
December.
But for now the issue must not be tax reform. It must be an
immediate tax moratorium on increasing property taxes.
I am recommending that a substantial portion of the new
revenues we anticipate from the growth of our economy be
used to finance a moratorium on property taxes and thus an
increased state assumption of the burden of paying for public
education.
My plan would reduce the maximum school property tax
rate from the current eight mills to six mills this coming year
and 5.4 mills the year after next. During those same two
years, cities and counties exclusive of new construction would
be allowed to raise property taxes a maximum of only five
percent.
Tax reduction and avoidance for local property owners through
the moratorium I propose would be $251.8 million in 1979-80 and
$351.5 million in 1980-81.

The alternative is yet another substantial increase in prop-
erty taxes . a continuation of the upward climb which has
increased property taxes $900 million since 1974.

But this is not tax reform. Nor is it meant to be.










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



The tax moratorium I have recommended is only a prelude to
the full-scale tax reform which we will consider in the special
session just eight months from now.
But this moratorium is creative nonetheless. For it will ac-
complish one of the most important items on our agenda of the
eighties-that of increasing state support for public education.
And it will help create a positive atmosphere for equitable
reform of property taxes. As chairman of the board of the
department of revenue, it is my intention to see that we use
the moratorium period to achieve substantially greater uniform-
ity in our property tax assessments throughout the state so
that we may meet the constitutional standard and our legal
mandate of just valuation at fair market value.
We must have time to build the public constituency that is
needed for full-fledged tax reform. This time can be obtained
by deferring the larger issues of tax reform until December.
The tax reform we seek cannot be achieved within two months.
But it can and must be achieved within the next two years. It
must be directed at answering these questions:
Do we have a tax system that is adequate at both the state
and local level to assure needed revenue for the next decade?
Do we have a system which distributes the burden of taxation
fairly ?
Does our tax system assist us in achieving other desirable
state goals-such as expanding our economic opportunities,
providing alternative energy sources, and revitalizing our
cities ?
Let the tax reform commission consider those questions now.
And let us together try to answer them in December.
During the coming weeks we have an opportunity to begin
addressing the agenda of the eighties.
That agenda will not be fulfilled entirely this year. Or next.
But we must determine what we can do now, in this session, to
assure that the entirety of the agenda of the next decade will
ultimately be accomplished.
Several overriding goals will serve as the standard by which
our work will be judged.
Keeping total spending within the president's inflation guide-
lines.
Assuring adequate reserves.
Providing a property tax moratorium as a necessary prelude
to long-range tax reform.
Increasing the state commitment to the elderly, to law en-
forcement, and to economic development.
And increasing substantially the state's commitment to the
funding for public education.
These are the keys to my recommended budget. These are
the fundamental elements of creative restraint.
We have a chance to make our government work for all our
people . and to inspire the people to want to work with us.
There are two possible futures for Florida.
There is the future we will drift into if we do nothing, and
there is the future we have the opportunity to create.
It is a happy future-and one in which we can all share.
But to shape that future we must have the wisdom to con-
front the forces before us and the courage to make the choices
which are in the best interests of the people.



We must have the discipline of creative restraint.
Thank you.
