the Court's 1979 certification as likely to be required this year,
if projected population and caseload growth patterns continued.
They did.
Requests were received from the appellate districts for five
district court judgeships, and from the judicial circuits for
twenty-two circuit court and eight county court judgeships.
These requests were carefully analyzed by the state courts
administrator, the chief justice, and the full Court, using es-
sentially the process by which the Court determined the number
of new judgeships to certify last year at this time. See In re:
Certificate of Judicial Manpower for Circuit and County Courts
as Required by Article V, Section 9, Florida Constitution, 370
So.2d 363 (Fla. 1979). It will be noted that the Court's recom-
mendation certifies to the legislature twenty less judicial posi-
tions than have been requested.
Although not all requests have been met, a phenomenon is
discernible which will affect future 'judgeship certifications.
There has been a steady growth in the number of case filings
per judge at the circuit level, as the following figures demon-
strate.



1973- 980
1974-1,283
1975-1,325
1976-1,298
1977-1,445
1978-1,677
1979-1,827

While "filings per judge" is not, by itself, a meaningful statis-
tic for certification, it does tend to indicate that the availability
of judicial positions has not kept pace with the litigation ex-
plosion in Florida. It further suggests that changes in the
duties and responsibilities of judicial officers which occur with
major law reform efforts, such as recent criminal and juvenile
law reforms, should be weighed for their impact on the judiciary.
Our recommendations for new circuit court positions are con-
servative, and they are predicated to some extent on the pros-
pect of legislative action during the 1980 regular session (i)
to repeal the 125-day limit on the use of retired judges and



(ii) to increase the jurisdictional limit for civil proceedings in
county courts. Should these measures fail, the number of judges
now certified will be inadequate to maintain reasonably current
dockets in several judicial circuits.

FINDINGS
First Appellate District. Effective October 1, 1979, the Indus-
trial Relations Commission was abolished and all pending and
future appeals from workmen's (workers') compensation cases
were assigned to the First District Court of Appeal. The court
was given two new judgeship positions to cope with this new
responsibility, neither of which was filled until November 1979.
The caseload of this court has increased beyond all expecta-
tions, both in the area of workers' compensation, and in all
other categories. With respect to the former, the court received
1,105 unresolved cases from the IRC on October 1, 1979, and
has received an average of seventy-eight additional compensa-
tion cases in each successive month. We note that, whatever dim-
inution may occur in workers' compensation appeals, additional
duties will devolve on the court as a result of the adoption on
March 11 of the jurisdictional amendment to the constitution.
Case filings in other areas, principal among which is admin-
istrative law, have steadily grown, to the point that the court
is now receiving a projected annual average of 461 cases per
judge, not including rehearing requests and motions. The court's
backlog of cases on December 31, 1979, was 2,162 cases. The
chief judge, despite demanding administrative burdens, current-
ly attempts to maintain a full calendar of cases.
We noted in our certification last year that appellate judges
cannot adequately bear the initial responsibility for review of
more than 250 cases per judge, annually. Even with the two
new judgeships, the caseload per judge in this district will be
well above acceptable levels. We hope that retired district court
judges will be able to assist this court, and that adequate staff-
ing is provided for their needs, until the trend of new filings is
confirmed over a longer period of time, at which time it may be
necessary to add more permanent judgeships.
Based on a need for the chief judge to assume full-time, or
near full-time, administrative responsibilities, and in light of
both the continued growth in the number and complexity of ap-
peals in this appellate district and the additional writing re-
sponsibilities placed on district court judges by the March 11
amendment to the constitution, we certify the need for two addi-
tional district court judges.
Fourth Circuit. The dominant factors considered by the Court
in certifying the need of one additional circuit judge in the
Fourth Judicial Circuit (Duval, Clay and Nassau Counties),
despite a request for two, are (i) the growth of litigation in
the outlying areas of the circuit (Clay and Nassau Counties),
(ii) the constitutional limitations on the assignment of addi-
tional duties for four, non-lawyer county court judges in the
circuit, (iii) the lack of available, assignable retired circuit
court judges, and (iv) an increase in felony filings which has
required continued assignments of a county court judge to cir-
cuit court duties in that area.
Seventh Circuit. The dominant factors considered by the Court
in certifying the need for one additional circuit judge and one
additional county court judge in the Seventh Judicial Circuit
(Volusia, Putnam, Flagler and St. Johns Counties), despite a
request for two circuit court judges and one county court judge,
are (i) the continuing caseload growth in Putnam and St. Johns
Counties, (ii) the increase in criminal matters in Volusia Coun-
ty, and (iii) one of the highest caseload filing incidence in the
state.
Ninth Circuit. The probable need for one additional circuit
court judge here was perceived in 1979. The dominant factors
considered by the Court in certifying the need for one additional
circuit court judge in the Ninth Circuit (Orange and Osceola
Counties) despite a request for two, are (i) the inability to
service continually growing circuit court caseloads, and (ii)
the unavailability of retired judges.
Tenth Circuit. The probable need for one additional circuit



court judge here was perceived in 1979. The dominant factors
considered by the Court in certifying the need for one addi-
tional circuit judge in the Tenth Judicial Circuit (Polk, High-
lands and Hardee Counties), despite a request for two judges,
are (i) rapidly expanding caseloads and growing backlogs in
the juvenile division, (ii) the unavailability of county court

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



judges for temporary assignments to the circuit court, and (iii)
the second highest caseload incidence in the state.
Fifteenth Circuit. The dominant factor considered by the
Court in certifying the need for one additional county court
judge in the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit (Palm Beach County)
was an ever-growing population and county court caseload.
Seventeenth Circuit. The probable need for two additional
circuit court judges here was perceived in 1979. The dominant
factors considered by the Court in certifying the need for three
additional circuit judges and two additional county court judges
in the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit (Broward County), despite
a request for eleven circuit court and three county court judge-
ships, are the same as last year, plus the special condemnation
situation which exists in Broward County.
This circuit has requested three of the eleven additional cir-
cuit judges predicated exclusively on projected judicial require-
ments for condemnation proceedings now commencing and pro-
jected to continue for six or seven years. We are unwilling to
certify the need for permanent judgeship positions for a non-
permanent need. Our recommendation for the creation of three
permanent judgeships takes into account this special considera-
tion, including the fact that condemnation proceedings will
temporarily increase the caseload and jury trials in this circuit.
Growth in Broward County, which apparently is the second
fastest growing county in the United States, is expected to con-
tinue, and the need for additional judicial manpower has been
thoroughly documented. Retired judges cannot be made available
to provide the necessary continuity of manpower which this
circuit now needs. Accordingly, we certify the need for three
new, permanent, circuit court judgeships at this time. In the
event that condemnation matters become too burdensome or
further growth in the county continues, the Court may well be
required to certify the need in successive years for additional
judgeships.
Eighteenth Circuit. The dominant factors considered by the
Court in certifying the need for one additional county court
judge in the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit (for Brevard County),
despite a request for two, are (i) the extensive travel times re-
quired to service the wide geographical area covered by the
circuit, and (ii) the explosion of population and caseloads in
lower Brevard County.
Nineteenth Circuit. The probable need for one additional cir-
cuit court judge here was perceived in 1979. The dominant
factors considered by the Court in certifying the need for one
additional circuit court judge in the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit
(St. Lucie, Martin, Okeechobee, and Indian River Counties),
despite a request for two, are the same as last year, namely (i)
travel times required to service the jurisdiction of the circuit,
and (ii) an expansion in population, caseload, and complex liti-
gation resulting from the permanent growth which has taken
place in lower Martin County.
In addition to these identified peculiar circumstances within
these circuits, each judgeship request is statistically justified in
that the ability of judicial officers in these circuits to perform
thoroughly, expeditiously, and fairly their total judicial duties is
to some degree presently impaired by the volume of matters
now commanding their attention.

CERTIFICATION
Therefore, in accordance with article V, section 9, Constitu-
tion of Florida, we certify the need for the additional district,
circuit and county court judgeships indicated above, for a total
of fifteen new judicial positions for the appellate and trial
courts of the state. This Court certifies that these judicial offi-
cers are necessary, and we recommend that they be made perma-
nent by law and funded by the state.
As a final point of consideration we note that 1980 is an elec-
tion year, so that the possibility of either elective or appointive
judgeship positions is present. If vacancies are to be filled by
elections in the fall, none of the judicial manpower we have
certified will be available until January, 1981, that is, one full
year from the time the needs of these courts were determined.



We recommend, therefore, the creation of all judicial positions
as of August 1, 1980 (following the close of the qualification
period for elective state offices), and to avoid personal hard-



ships and uncertainty for applicants we recommend that the
seats created be removed from the elective process in 1980.

Governor's Address
The President presented Governor Graham who addressed
the Joint Session as follows:
Alongside some of North Florida's beautiful canopied roads
we occasionally find a briar plant called "the nettle."
The nettle is an ugly plant. It bristles with thorns and poison.
It also grows in rugged, mountainous country.

The wary mountain climber avoids the loathesome nettle at all
costs.
But there comes a time when even the thorny nettle plant can
actually mean the difference between life or death.
When a climber has gotten into trouble, has lost his grip on
the mountainside, when he is close to tumbling off a sheer cliff,
the thorny nettle plant presents a choice universal to all
mankind.

It is a concept so dramatic it has become an artifact of the
English language.

"Grasping the nettle" is a phrase that graphically describes
the painful but unavoidable act of courage necessary to forestall
certain disaster.

It is painful. It is very painful.

But we, the leaders of .the State of Florida, have got to
recognize this fact: Many citizens of our nation and our state
feel we're losing the ability to control our own destiny.

A frightening inflation rate grips our economy like an iron
vice.
A foreign petro-dictator holds our brothers and our sisters
prisoner. He laughs because he thinks we're too soft and too
complacent to cure our addiction to his energy.



Even in this nation, which was founded upon individual free-
dom, well-intended government programs sometimes reach too

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



far into our lives. Too much government strangles our free-
dom, wastes our money and drowns our ambition in a sea of
regulations.
And though the world grows more complicated and more
interrelated by the hour, we seem to pay less and less attention
to educating our children to deal with that world when their
time comes.
Leaders of the State of Florida, there is no time left to
seek less painful handholds on that mountain, there are no com-
fortable ledges within reach, no easy way out of our dilemma.
The time has come for very clear, very far-sighted think-
ing. The time has come for courageous leadership.
The time has come for us to grasp that nettle, and begin
climbing back up the mountain.
I say this with no fear whatsoever of overstating the situa-
tion: The state of the American economy is so serious, our
energy and transportation dilemma so acute that Americans
now face the gravest upheaval they have faced since World
War II shook this planet.
But I also say this with no fear of overstatement: We are
the great-great-grandchildren of the builders of railroads: We
are the descendants of men and women who tamed the swamps
and ran highways down the keys: we are the heirs to the
settlers of Florida's vast palmetto plains.
We are Americans, and we are Floridians, and when we
are met with great challenges, we do not falter.
Members of the Legislature, leaders of Florida, we have
worked very hard together in the past. We have had our
alliances and our differences. When many of our citizens were
crying out for property tax relief, you brought forth the
$25,000 homestead exemption and I embraced that solution.
Together we fought to ensure its passage, and it did pass.
I congratulate you on getting tax relief to those of our citizens
who desperately needed it.
My friends, I implore you this morning to share my very
grave concerns about the state of the economy in America and
in Florida.
We no longer have the time for secondary issues.
I beseech you to join with me in a new spirit of unity and co-
operation: Let us close the ranks and do the people's work.
For the first three months of 1980, Florida's economy re-
mained strong. But the country as a whole is probably in for
very troubled economic times.
Whether or not America is in for a recession, there is abso-
lutely no question about this: An American's way of life, a
Floridian's way of life, will change more in the next ten years
than it has in the past thirty.
Government can and government must help our people adjust
to a new era. In order to do that, government itself must be
competent.
We have already taken great strides in that direction.
Last year when the streets of Miami were torn by gunfire
and brutality, we declared war on a deeply imbedded "cocaine
conspiracy", and now we're finally beginning to drive those
international criminals from our shores.
We are proud of our record of hiring and appointing the



handicapped-more women-more blacks, hispanics and other
minorities in leadership positions in government. We strongly
believe in affirmative action.



We have improved the regulation of our professional com-
munities. The Florida Cabinet through cooperation and hard
work is assuming a dynamic leadership role in Florida's gov-
ernment.
We have instituted personnel reform, and combined two
functions which should never have been separate: Planning and
budgeting.
We are geared up for the future.
We have begun making fundamental changes in the way
government collects and spends the people's money.
You should consider again this year several far-reaching,
very worthwhile concepts.
Single-member legislative districts would give the people
more of a sense of identification in the legislative process.
You should offer voters a Constitutional amendment to that
effect.
We as leaders need to face head-on the terrible problems
of our citizens being forced out of their homes by condominium
conversions. I strongly urge that you adopt the legislation pro-
posed by the Department of Business Regulation regarding that
matter.

Florida is blessed to have many senior citizens. My wife
Adele and I are very concerned that they have the services they
need. I urge you to pass legislation which will help them by
providing renter relief .. To assure access to doctors and
hospitals to our neediest citizens Better nursing homes...
and better transportation services.

The Equal Rights Amendment will be our generation's con-
tribution to individual liberty.
It is time the Florida Legislature contributes to our legacy
of freedom by ratifying the equal rights amendment.
Over the past several months we have initiated a series of
major legislative programs: on energy, fiscal policy, resource
management, education, and transportation. These proposals
deal with a wide variety of problems and challenges.
But we face a wide variety of problems and challenges.

We must begin to take steps now, both short term and long
term, to prepare for Florida's future.

Leaders of the State of Florida, we now have two options:
We can act and suffer the pain and ecstasy of leadership or we
can leave the arena and allow others to decide our fate. The
time has come for all of us to grasp that nettle.

First, I believe the biennial budget is a reasonable, a rational
approach to spending the people's money wisely.

However, the real benefits won't be realized for at least
another year. It is clear that such a budget gives us time to
reflect, to consider. past successes and failures, and then make
adjustments.

For this year, my commitment to that process is clear.
Almost 70% of our new recommendations reflect the decisions
you made less than 10 months ago.

There is a common theme in every one of these proposals.
These changes must be made because of inflation and to meet
our energy needs.



Some of them will require sacrifice. But that should be
considered nothing more than an investment for the future.

April 8, 1980








6 JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE

Last year, we agreed that our budget reserves should be
maintained at ten percent of our General Revenue Fund.
I am committed to maintaining an adequate state surplus
to meet the people's needs in the event of a downturn in our
economy. I will not accept any fiscal plan providing for a
surplus of less than 404 million dollars.
I'm overjoyed and I hope you're overjoyed that Washington
has finally realized it can't solve all its problems at the cur-
rency printing press. And it's President Carter's strong leader-
ship that brought it about.
We are closely monitoring budget information from Wash-
ington and will continue to work with you to make changes as
they become necessary.
Our second short-term goal will be to prepare for an economic
downturn in the very sensitive construction industry. Our in-
formation indicates that there could be a net loss of 50,000 jobs
in that sector by the end of 1980. My concern is immediate.
We should appropriate 32.5 million dollars to continue the
school maintenance program you authorized last December. By
doing that, we can help one area of our economy while at the
same time providing for badly needed maintenance.
To further aid our construction economy, we should allow
the people to vote on a state housing finance agency proposal,
to encourage construction of additional rental apartments and
to help our people realize the American dream of owning a
home.
I am also proposing that we coordinate and expedite the
permitting process to see that no construction project is need-
lessly strangled by the noose of government regulation. Many
of these recommendations are outlined in our resource manage-
ment program.
A Constitutional amendment allowing tax incentives for new
and expanding businesses, and grants to promote the rejuvena-
tion of our older neighborhoods will also help take some of
the slope out of the construction downturn.
Tourism is highly vulnerable in an economic downturn. We
have already demonstrated during the gas crunch in the sum-
mer of 1979 that priming the economic pump through pro-
motion can be highly effective.
Our final short-term goal is to continue to limit the growth
of property taxes as we did last year.
I ask you again this year to help protect the people from
new taxes caused by higher assessments.
Within the next few months, those measures will help
Florida moderate the economic tremors which will surely sweep
the rest of the country.
They will not be easy to institute, they will not be univer-
sally popular. But if we want to halt that downhill plunge,
we're going to have to grasp that nettle and hang on for all
we're worth because there may not be another one further
down the hill.
And then, after we've halted the plunge, it will be time
to begin the long climb back up.
We need to begin examining the role of government, which
inadvertently contributes to our economic woes by the expense
and the waste of some of our own laws and regulations.



Just last month, when a man wanted to drive a van full of
workers the fifty miles from Perry to Tallahassee, he couldn't
find out if he needed a license, what kind of license it might

be, or who was going to give it to him. He's been driving his
route for free because government has kept him from making
a profit.
It's very welcome news that the Public Service Commission
yesterday granted him a temporary permit to operate his van.
But what I want to know is: what about the hundreds of
other businessmen who didn't get on the front page with their
regulation problems.
The hoops that government forces the businessman to jump
through wastes his time, wastes his money and destroys the
most precious commodity in the American marketplace, the
human spirit.
The next time you sit at your desks considering legislation
which will impose more restraints on the free marketplace,
remember this: An industry that wants to be regulated is an
industry that doesn't want to compete.
The principle here should be: Where the free marketplace
will work, let it work. If not, is there some way to get away
with less regulation, or more enlightened regulation to accom-
plish the same goals?
Whenever possible, government itself should stimulate the
free enterprise system to be more responsive and less expensive.
The health care field is one arena where the free market is
not functioning in the best interests of the people. More than
90 percent of all hospital bills are paid by insurance companies
or the government. There is little incentive to keep costs down.
Recently, with no cost to government whatsoever, state gov-
ernment helped formulate the Dade County Health Care Cost
Containment Coalition. This group is organizing private busi-
nesses and governmental employers to bargain collectively with
insurance companies and thus keep medical costs down.
That is a role that government should play whenever it can.
Government regulation has a particularly harmful effect on
Florida's changing tourism patterns. More and more visitors
are coming to our state by air and thus will have to find sur-
face transportation when they get here. Our international
tourists have the same problem.
At a time when the marketplace should be responding to
that need, because of government regulation a license for a
sight-seeing bus which the government charges $500 for now
costs an average of $250,000 on the open market.
In these energy-conscious days, there is absolutely no excuse
for government to be restraining more efficient methods of
travel.
Of course there are areas where regulation is a must.
Protecting the environment, public safety and health all require
government attention, particularly with regard to hazardous
wastes, and the mining of our natural resources. But that
attention should be enlightened, not oppressive.

The energy dilemma-The transportation dilemma-in this
nation and state are perhaps the thorniest nettles of this
spring season.

They are problems so fundamental, they can be described
in geological terms.








JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Their residue fueled an industrial revolution. But the end
of the petroleum era looms on the horizon.
The oil price squeeze contributes to our cancerous inflation
rate, and transfers our wealth to foreign banks.
We in the various state legislatures around the country did
a lot of talking in the fifties and the sixties and the seventies
about states rights. But in the decade of the eighties we have
to realize that states also have responsibilities.
If we in Florida do not get our energy usage under control,
the federal government will feel obliged to step in and give
us a hand. That hand will come in the form of a burdensome
surcharge, weekend closings, boating restrictions, or gas ration-
ing. I challenge you to think of a more unwelcome bureaucratic
nightmare than yet one more bureaucracy whose function is
to hand out little pieces of paper.
The economic turmoil that would cause in this state would
be almost beyond imagining.
We must grasp that nettle once and for all and realize that
an American's way of life, a Floridian's way of life, is chang-
ing and will continue to change. We have rediscovered the
small automobile in this country. We have rediscovered the
wood stove and the ceiling fan.
I know there are some questions in these halls as to govern-
ment's role in helping to finance energy efficiency in the
private sector.
I say this to you: The people are aware that they can save
money by becoming more energy efficient.
We must move to the fore and lead by incentives, to accel-
erate the process of change and to help our people adapt more
easily and with less disruption.
Our business and residential grant program is designed to
put government back in a leadership role in meeting Florida's
energy future.
Leaders of Florida, we must reduce our energy usage twenty-
five percent by 1990. We may disagree as to the methods, but
we must share a common commitment to that goal.
There are other leadership initiatives we can take, and we
can take them now.

A surcharge on those who break the speeding laws and
waste energy-a gas guzzler tax-and a severance tax on
energy sources will all help to put government back in that
leadership role.

Florida's sunshine has brought this state great wealth by
attracting visitors from all over the world.
As our program makes very clear, that same sunshine can
now bring a new form of wealth to our people-solar energy.

If we will face the reality of the end of the petroleum era,
if we will conserve now, if we will grasp that nettle now, we
can begin to plan for Florida's energy future.



I'm not going to tell you that Florida's transportation system
is going to disintegrate within twelve months if we fail to act.
But by the end of your next term you will see highway
construction all but come to a halt. Interstate construction will
be jeopardized. State money will not be available to local
governments to purchase buses and other transportation forms.
If there is anyone in these chambers who does not believe
that will happen, the first pothole you hit will remind you.
Your next late appointment caused by a traffic jam will further
make that point.
We must redirect our transportation priorities. We must
make our highways more energy efficient. We must provide
public transit to those people who no longer can afford to drive
their cars to work.
But we must have the funds to begin preparing for our
energy future. Funds that do not depend on the unpredictable
gasoline consumption habits of our people, but instead upon the
cost of building and maintaining that transportation system.
These are some of our other long-term goals:
We must see that Florida diversifies its economy, because we
are no longer a parochial beach resort suspended on the south-
east corner of the United States.
Florida is already a vibrant commercial and financial center
of the world. We should keep those doors open when we con-
sider laws that affect finance and commerce.
Let us make this message clear:
Business is welcome in Florida. Working together we have
brought 24,000 additional jobs to our state in the last year-
almost twice the number of the previous year.
Lieutenant Governor Wayne Mixson deserves special credit
for this accomplishment.
To continue to attract the kind of businesses we want, it
will be necessary to provide an educational system that is
comparable to the best in the country. Our commitment made
last year for improving the quality of our university system,
provides 24 million dollars and will move us in that direction.
We must have a university system that will attract top
scholars and students from all over the world. We must have a
public school system where teachers are paid what they're
worth, and we must have school programs that challenge young
minds.

The Florida Cabinet has already undertaken a revitalized
leadership role in Florida education.

Before we decide to change that system, I propose that we
give the cabinet a chance to continue its performance-and I
further propose that we increase public education funding by
thirteen percent for every student in our state-not because we
have money to throw away, but because it's an investment in our
future.



Because the bond market is uncertain, we must provide an-
Our transportation dilemma is a function of our energy other way for school districts to do away with double sessions.
dilemma.



The Transportation Study Commission, headed by former
astronaut Frank Borman, and some of the best minds in the
public and private sectors, did an excellent job analyzing our
transportation needs. They concluded, as I have, and I am
confident you will, that Florida is approaching a crisis in trans-
portation.



If the school board wants to-it must have the authority to
raise money to build new classrooms.

I propose that this be done.

Thirdly, we need to level out Florida's historical boom-or-bust
spending philosophy.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



I am again proposing an expenditure limitation plan that will
get our state off that irresponsible roller coaster ride once and
for all.
In November of 1979 we asked you to help stabilize Florida's
economy by providing a constitutional spending limit for state
government.
Our February 1979 budget and our budget adjustments this
session, again, reflect this philosophy:
State general revenue spending should be linked to growth
in population and the rate of inflation. Florida must save.
money during the good times in order to continue vital pro-
grams during bad years.
That is a concept compelling enough to be institutionalized
in our Constitution.
Fourth, Government spending and government growth must
be controlled.
At the same time, government must become more stream-
lined and more competent. It will take that kind of government
to carry out the programs I have outlined today-the programs
essential to meet Florida's economic future.

Our Inspector General's office is working daily to increase
competence in government.
Further, I make this pledge to you today:
By the end of my term, I intend to have limited the size of
state government to no more than one percent of the population
of Florida.

Ladies and gentlemen of the Florida Legislature, most of
you know me as an optimist, a believer in tomorrow and to-
morrow.

But I must tell you today with every ounce of conviction I
can muster-that optimism alone will not see us through in
this very complex-sometimes perilous world.

Ours is a sacred trust.

We must grasp that nettle, and we must act more carefully
than we ever have before, or our future will begin to -
crumble before our very eyes.

I believe that you are up to the challenge. I believe that you
are ready to join with me, to roll up our sleeves, and to get
down to the very serious business of preparing for Florida's
future in this troubled world.

I believe you are ready to grasp that nettle with me and
to begin to pull ourselves back towards the summit. It will
not be easy, but climbing upwards has never been easier than
sliding backwards.

There are no comfortable ledges to rest upon. There are
no easy paths up or down that mountain.

But I tell you this: The summit has its own rewards. The
air is clear there. The sky is electric blue.

And even the weariest climber can see for miles and miles
and miles.

Following his address, Governor Graham was escorted from
the Chamber by the Committee. The members of the Supreme
Court and the Lieutenant Governor and Cabinet were escorted

Consideration of the Special and Continuing Order

HR 906-A resolution urging the League of Cities, the State
Association of County Commissioners, the district school boards
and the United States Congress to endorse and adopt the Four-
Way Test.
WHEREAS, in 1932, Herbert J. Taylor developed a series of
questions known as the Four-Way Test in an effort to promote
a better attitude among his fellow workers and through them,
a better relationship between his corporation and the people
it served, and
WHEREAS, the Rotary International quickly adopted the
test as a code of personal principles which could be used to
transform a community from a collection of bitter rivals divided
by internal strife to a growing cooperative organism con-
cerned with the welfare of its component parts, and
WHEREAS, Walter LeGrande, a pharmacist and Rotarian
from Daytona Beach, Florida, understood the value of the
principles embraced in the four-way test and desired to make
Daytona Beach a better place to live in for its citizens, and
WHEREAS, the use of the four-way test in Daytona Beach,
Florida, united a city which had been splintered by competitive
factions and commercial rivalry to the extent that tourists no
longer felt welcome and thereby transformed Daytona Beach
into a model of cooperative commercial effort, and
WHEREAS, there have been few periods in the history of
our country when we have been more in need of philosophical
principles which would help to unite us in our national pur-
pose, and
WHEREAS, the four-way test asks:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?, and
WHEREAS, organizations such as the League of Cities, the
State Association of County Commissioners, the United States
Congress and our own Legislature should endorse and promote
the four-way test, and
WHEREAS, the Legislature of the State of Florida should
promote the four-way test, NOW, THEREFORE,
Be It Resolved by the House of Representatives of the State of
Florida:
That the Legislature urges the League of Cities, the State
Association of County Commissioners, the district school boards
and the United States Congress to endorse and adopt the Four-
Way Test as an aid in the development of a greater national
purpose.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution
be presented to Walter LeGrande, as a tangible token of the
sentiments expressed herein.
-was read the second time in full. Pending consideration
thereof-

Noting that members of the escort committee all were past
presidents of their respective Rotary Clubs, the Speaker pre-
sented Mr. LeGrande, a Rotarian from Daytona Beach. On
motion by Mr. Batchelor, the rules were waived and the fol-
lowing remarks by Mr. LeGrande were ordered spread upon
the Journal:

Speaker Brown, ladies and gentlemen of the Legislature, my
escort, thank you, gentlemen. It's indeed a pleasure to have
the privilege to speak to this resolution for bringing out
some salient points that I think are important. Herb Taylor,
who is the author of the Four-Way Test, in 1932 took over an
aluminum company that was virtually bankrupt. After survey-
ing the firm, he found that there was a lack of good ethical
conduct within the business and that was what he needed to
bring it to solvency. He was a wise individual and he told me
one day that he recalled the words of an old Roman senator,
Cicero, who chided his colleagues on the floor of the Senate
in Rome, when Rome was on the peak of destruction, and re-
minded each and every one that one who refused to review
the history of past ethics, to point up mistakes and transgres-
sion of ethics of the present, would forever remain a simple
child. So Herb looked back and he found in the book of
Jeremiah, Chapter 9, verses 23 and 24, the words that make up
the Four-Way Test of ethical guidelines.

Gentlemen, he had all the personnel of that firm memorize
the Four-Way Test and their cooperation brought about within
a period of about five years a successful operation paying off
all indebtedness and making of Club Aluminum one of the
outstanding industries in Chicago. Since the indebtedness was



paid off, Herbert Taylor had other means of livelihood. All
profits from Club Aluminum has gone, and still does, to chari-
table youth and religious foundations.
In 1946 I heard him tell the story of the Four-Way Test
and in 19-mid-fifties we were having some problems in our
Better Business Division of the Chamber of Commerce in Day-
tona Beach. We were getting too many complaints. We used the
Four-Way Test in some committee meetings in the Better Busi-
ness Division and, gentlemen, it proved that you can change
from negative to positive the thinking of people when you
make the right approach. We promoted the program in Daytona
Beach and proved that it can be a program for good. We
spearheaded the program from Rotary into the Chamber of
Commerce and it became a community-wide program. We gath-
ered data- of social happenings, of dollar volume of business,
of all of the programs that would come under an ethical pro-
gram, and then for a year we promoted the Test throughout
Daytona Beach and used it as preventative medicine and in
settling issues. My friends, Reader's Digest wrote the story,
"The Town that Buried its Hatchets." And it relates and shows
what can be done within a year's time. There was great im-
provement in all relations in Daytona Beach and I can say to
you this, that it became as much a part of Daytona Beach
almost as our famous beach. We promoted it through adver-
tising, through plaques displayed in businesses, through out-
door billboards, and, yes, even our ministers used it in sermons
in their churches.
And now we come down to this one that is touched on in
the resolution, regarding our nation as a whole and the perilous
condition we find our nation in today. My friends, critics of
old tell us of past civilizations-the Arabic, Greek, Egyptian,
Roman. Like MacBeth, each crossed the stage like a shadow
and then disappeared. Present-day critics tell us that America,
too, will join this shadowy procession. I believe, however, that
we who are gathered today, and other good Americans, look
upon our country as a great land of destiny. We each have a
part to play in carrying out that which we should to make
America the great nation that we dream of.
Angelo Patri, well-known Italian educator expresses this
point very well when he relates the story of a trip and a
return visit to the city of his nativity, Rome. One night while
writing letters, he heard from across the courtyard someone
practicing on a silver trumpet the same note over and over
and over until it became boring and he closed the window.
He was invited to attend a symphony in the city the next night
and he did so. And there in the first piece that came forth
he recognized the notes of the night before that were boring.
Now mixed with all the other pieces in the orchestra, it had
meaning and purpose and was beautiful and, my friends, so it
is with your life and with mine. If it is to have meaning and
purpose, we must go out through the crowds and know them
and know what they are about. And if you have a silver trumpet
and you know the score of a great movement, such as the Four-
Way Test, play it on your silver trumpet joyously, command-
ingly, and triumphantly. And when we do, we each may say,
as Kipling said:
When Earth's last picture is painted,
and the tubes are twisted and dried,
When the oldest colours have faded,
and the youngest critic has died,
We shall rest, and, faith, we shall need
it-lie down for an aeon or two,
Till the Master of All Good Workmen
shall put us to work anew.



And those that were good shall be happy,
and shall sit on a golden throne

And splash at a ten-league canvas
with brushes of comet's hair.
And they will have real Saints to draw from-
Magdalene, Peter, and Paul.
They will work for an age at a sitting
and never be weary at all.
And only the Master shall praise us,
and only the Master shall blame;
And no one shall work for money, and
no one shall work for fame;
But each for the joy of the working,
and each, in his separate star,
Shall draw the Thing as he sees It for
the God of Things as They Are!
Gentlemen of the Legislature, Speaker Brown, the leadership
of our state, we who have worked on this program appreciate
so much the passage of this resolution and adoption by the
state in helping us to promote, and which we hope we carry
right on through to higher places, this program of ethics.
For that is what we need in these troublesome times of today.
Gentlemen, thank you for your kind attention.

Following his remarks, Mr. LeGrande was escorted from the
Chamber.

HR 1250-A resolution relating to State Representative Gene
Flinn.
WHEREAS, two of Representative Gene Flinn's former aides
filed sworn complaints with the Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission alleging various acts of sexual discrimination and
sexual harassment, and
WHEREAS, sworn affidavits were filed with the House of
Representatives by the two former aides alleging, in addition to
sexual discrimination, misuse of legislative employees, and
WHEREAS, the Speaker of the Florida House of Representa-
tives on January 7, 1980, appointed a Select Committee to
investigate the allegations against Representative Flinn and
make a recommendation, if deemed appropriate, to the House
in accordance with Rule 5.14, Rules of the Florida House of
Representatives, and
WHEREAS, the Select Committee, with the concurrence of
the Speaker, directed that depositions be taken of all of Rep-
resentative Flinn's former aides, as well as of other persons
with knowledge of the conduct of Representative Flinn, and
WHEREAS, the Select Committee conducted hearings on
March 13, 1980, and March 21, 1980, giving Representative
Flinn an opportunity to appear before and present testimony
and other evidence to the Select Committee, and
WHEREAS, the Select Committee found that Representative
Gene Flinn had violated Rule 5.6, Rules of the Florida House of
Representatives, and subsection (6) of section 112.313, Florida
Statutes, and
WHEREAS, pursuant to Rule 5.14, Rules of the Florida
House of Representatives, penalties imposed by the Florida
House of Representatives for violation of the house rule relat-
ing to legislative conduct must be upon recommendation of
the Select Committee, and
WHEREAS, the Select Committee, upon reasonable notice
and an opportunity of Representative Flinn to be heard, did on
April 4, 1980, recommend that the House of Representatives
reprimand Representative Flinn, and
WHEREAS, the Select Committee strongly condemns im-
proper sexual advances by a House member directed toward
the member's legislative aide or any prospective legislative
employee, and



WHEREAS, the House of Representatives has received the
report of the Select Committee in this matter, NOW, THERE-
FORE,



Be It Resolved by the House of Representatives of the State of
Florida:
That Gene Flinn, Representative, District 116, did violate
Rule 5.6, Rules of the Florida House of Representatives, and
subsection (6) of section 112.313, Florida Statutes, and that
Representative Gene Flinn is hereby reprimanded for said
violation.

Explanations

I did not vote on HR 1250 since it immediately concerned my
private rights as distinct from the public interest and, hence,
Rule 5.1 prohibited my voting on the measure. In addition, I
did not oppose the resolution on the floor because I believed
that a protracted floor debate was not in the best interests of
the House or of my family which has already suffered greatly.
However, I wish to make it clear that I do not agree with the
findings of the Select Committee or the resolution to the extent
that they found me guilty of any wrongdoing.
Representative Gene Flinn

I wish to explain my voting no on HR 1250, relating to the
reprimand of Representative Gene Flinn. I do not feel that a
reprimand is the proper disciplinary action on the findings as
established by the House Select Committee to investigate the
allegations concerning Representative Flinn's activities with
various legislative employees under his supervision.
I feel expulsion is the only proper disciplinary action for
these findings and would have voted for a Resolution of expul-
sion if one had been offered.
Representative S. Curtis Kiser
I voted against the resolution for the reason that the initial
charges were not substantiated. The action provided for in the

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



resolution means nothing as far as the integrity of the House.
It is public policy that this conduct is reprehensible; therefore
the action means nothing.
Representative Elvin L. Martinez
Serving in the House of Representatives is a privilege, not a
right. The exercise of that privilege carries with it substantial
responsibility including personal conduct which should be beyond
reproach.
In my opinion Representative Gene Flinn's personal conduct
was such that he should not be allowed to continue to serve in
the House of Representatives.
The public's confidence in those of us who serve in public
office will not be strengthened by this resolution of reprimand.
This resolution is an example of why we are not held in higher
esteem.
Therefore, I voted against HR 1250 because I believe the
penalty should have been expulsion.
Representative James L. Watt

HB 368-A bill to be entitled An act relating to gasoline
and oil inspection; amending s. 525.06, Florida Statutes; pro-
viding for the posting of a refundable bond in lieu of con-
fiscation; deleting the requirement of posting a sign designating
the degree of gravity of product sold; providing an effective

Representative Davis offered the following amendment:
Amendment 1-On page 1, lines 25 and 28, strike "$1000"
and insert: $2500
Ms. Davis moved the adoption of the amendment, which failed
