while convened in regular session for the year 1980 passed and
sent to me for my approval Committee Substitute for Senate
Bill 347, the Florida Banking Code, and

tains a provision that would prohibit the operation of loan
production offices by out of state bank holding companies and
would force such businesses that are currently operating in the
State to cease operation, and

ing within the State of Florida represents a serious backward

vetoed the bill, and
WHEREAS, in view of the interrelationship of the Florida

interest of the State of Florida to convene the legislature in
special session so that it may consider reenactment of the
Florida Banking Code.

On motion by Mr. Haben, the rules were waived and the

spread upon the Journal:









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSI



Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House, before we
actually take up the bill I would appreciate the indulgence of
the House for a few minutes so that I can present the factual
history that led us to this point on the banking bill. I offer
this background not for any other purpose than to explain
what has transpired to get to the point that we are today.
When your Commerce Committee was assigned the sunset
responsibilities on banking and savings and loans, credit unions
and securities, the retail installment act and others, it was
obvious that we would end up having to gear up for a monu-
mental task. With a good staff that was hard working, and
good committee, we started our work about a year ago on the
sunset process. We divided into subcommittees, hired additional
staff, assigned staff to the various subcommittees, and started
the long, arduous task of reviewing literally hundreds of pages
of technical and tedious legislation which was complex and,
frankly, for the most part, was boring. We plowed through and
completed our job primarily because of the hard work of the
subcommittee chairmen, members of the committee, the tre-
mendous assistance of Gerald Lewis and his staff, and the
thousands of hours of time that were donated by industry.
Gradually, each one of these bills took shape and after choosing
and disregarding and discarding various approaches and for-
mats, we started our public hearing process.
Other than the "due on sale" controversy in the savings and
loan law, the bills on savings and loans, credit unions, install-
ment sales act, securities, and the like, were voted out quietly
and without much controversy. I'm sure, had they not been rea-
sonably decent products, you would have heard outcries from
industry or the public or from the Governor's Office or press.
In the process, we were able to cut out many pages of useless
language and shorten the laws on our Statute books.

But I'd primarily like to zero in for just a minute on the
banking code and the process that we went through on the
banking code, since it is the center of controversy today. On
this matter your Commerce Committee, in my opinion, went the
extra mile. Not only did we have the normal staff and com-
mittee work, but we ended up hiring three of the most impartial
banking experts we could find to guide us through our efforts.
Most of the bulk of the work had been completed by the begin-
ning of the session. However, along about the beginning of the
session the plot started to thicken on the banking code. The
LPO issue-Loan Production Office issue-raised its head for
the first time. It was obvious that on this one issue, we had
hit a nerve. On the one side were the Florida bankers; on the
other side, the large money center banks, primarily located in
New York and California. Both began quickly arming for the
fight. At issue was the simple question as to whether or not
a foreign bank could maintain a loan production office in the
State of Florida. At stake was the fastest growing state in the
nation, highly attractive to banking activities. This issue took
on even greater importance because of te tense debate that
had been occurring in recent years on the whole structure of
banking, and particularly on the issue of interstate banking.
Our first step at the beginning of the session-I guess
this was about the first week of the first week of the session-was to request
the combatants on each side to sit down and see if they could
compromise and reach any agreement on the issue. We went
through this process for several weeks while they tried, but
after many meetings and exchanges it was obvious that no
compromise could be reached. It was either black or white to
them; either let in the LPO's or close them out, and the
various factions simply could not agree. It then became the
committee's task to resolve the issue one way or the other. It
had been my hope to keep out of the various sunset bills the
controversial issues, and reserve the "hot potato" type issues
to separate pieces of legislation, but in the banking bill, and
particularly with the LPO's, this just simply was not possible.
So after finding out that each side could not agree, I instructed
staff to prepare the banking code that we had drafted inserting,
not either side's position, but the present law on the LPO
question, reserving until the last committee meeting the ques-
tion as to whether or not we should ban LPO's or permit LPO's
in this state or to simply do nothing. At the committee meeting
we invited testimony of every conceivable interested party to
the issue, and particularly, I personally invited the testimony
and advice of Dr. Lanzillotti and Dr. Heggestad, both from
the University of Florida School of Business and Finance and



both highly respected authorities in banking in this state. Their
testimony was particularly revealing to the committee and,
frankly, had very heavy weight on the final decision. Dr.

House-there had been no definitive decision on this point by
any federal court or federal regulator. On May the 28th, this
House voted out the banking code 114 to 2 and sent it over to
the Senate. That was the last time this House or any com-
mittee had the chance to vote on this question. It was out
of our hands from that time forth. On June the 6th, the Senate
passed out the banking bill without amendment, the banking
bill that we sent to them, without amendment, 38 to nothing,
and on June the 10th the Supreme Court handed down its

Lanzillotti stated that new entry and increased competition in
the financial market is generally desirable. However, he cau-
tioned us that we should carefully consider the economic con-
sequences of hasty action on this matter, particularly the
proposal to remove all restrictions on LPO's, or any other
device that might circumvent national policy on interstate
banking. Dr. Lanzillotti recommended that we maintain status
quo. His recommendation was based on the fact that Congress
is actively debating the whole question of interstate banking,
and suggested to us that we wait until Congress resolved the
question before we either open the door or close the door on
LPO's. Dr. Lanzillotti, as evidence of his recommendation of
the need to wait, pointed to the law that was passed by
Congress which put a moratorium on the establishment of trust
activities by holding companies. He said that a similar policy
should apply to the State of Florida on the question of LPO's
until Congress resolved the broader issue. He asserted another
reason: that in order to have effective competition in this
area, an essential ingredient must be that all participants
have equal opportunity. He stated that the Florida banks
would operate at a disadvantage in competing with the
money center banks for two reasons if we let in LPO's. First,
the out-of-state banks would have a competitive advantage in
that they are able to avoid certain state taxes and, secondly,
the money center banks are able to maintain substantially
lower capital ratios, thus providing them with significantly
lower costs of funds. He closed his testimony by urging that
LPO's should be restricted from further expansion in the State
of Florida until national policy could be resolved on this ques-
tion, and until the rules of the game could be equalized for all
the competitors in the market.
At the same meeting the spokesman for the Department
of Banking and Finance, Mr. Lewis's office, indicated to the
committee that present law on the subject of LPO's was unclear,
but that it was the department's opinion that LPO's were not
permitted in the State of Florida under present law. I might
add, also, that at that committee meeting, when we went
deeply into this issue, no one from the Governor's Office testi-
fied or communicated any kind of message to me or any member
of my committee, that I'm aware of, as to his thoughts on this
matter.
Heeding the advice of Dr. Lanzillotti and trying to clarify the
uncertainty of present law, as was testified to by the Depart-
ment of Banking and Finance, our committee amended present
law in the draft to clearly state that LPO's should not be
permitted. When we adopted that amendment, immediately
after that, I announced that I would, between now and next
session, and with the approval of Speaker-designate Haben,
undertake a study of the LPO issue, of the tax ramifications
that might beined evolved in that issue, and monitor the activity
of- C ogress on this question. Everyone fully agreed that the
study was necessary and that to do anything at this stage of
the game on LPO's was premature, until we could wait and see
what Congress was going to do.
I might add that the rumors that you've heard in the news
that we did something in the Commerce Committee to dry up
the flow of dollars for economic development in this state is
simply not the case. People who made those statements inaccu-
rately stated the language of that bill. We put in a provision
that expressly stated that dollars were available to Florida
from out-of-state banks and that Florida customers would in no
way be limited on their access to dollars from these money
center banks.
At this point in time, when we voted this out of the com-
mittee, only a few days remained in the session. When the bill
came up on the floor, as you might recall, I gave you a
three page discussion paper on this issue and an explanation
of how your committee reached its decision on the LPO issue.
In that memo I also stated that the question as to whether or
not LPO activity is currently permitted by federal law is
unclear and that at that time-at the time of our committee
meeting and at the time we took it up on the floor of the









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



landmark decision in the Lewis vs. BT case and held that
another Florida Statute, not dealing with LPO's, which pro-
hibited a foreign bank from operating a trust office in this
state, was unconstitutional as being violative of the commerce
clause of the United States Constitution. While that issue in
the BT case was somewhat different from the issue of LPO's,
it raised serious questions as to whether or not Florida could
restrict the establishment of LPO's in this state.
Shortly after then we adjourned, and the banking bill found
its way to the Governor's desk. The Governor, rightly so, was
concerned about the impact of the Supreme Court decision and
the anti-competitive image of the Florida law. The Comptroller,
Gerald Lewis, also responded by saying he would not enforce
the LPO ban, due to the recent Supreme Court decision.
While the Governor was deciding what to do, he was being
talked to by many people on this issue. I, for one, urged him
to let the code become law without his signature, that we would
have a good banking code, and that the questionable provision,
as being possibly unconstitutional and the Comptroller saying
it would be unenforceable, could be dealt with in the November
session-the session that he's been promising us on transporta-
tion, Mr. Jones. It was my opinion that we could avoid a veto
and avoid a special session, and deal with this question in
November, giving us time to research the issues, research the
tax implications, and adequately prepare. Apparently, though,
my persuasiveness was not at an all-time high, and we are
here as a result of the Governor's veto dealing with an issue
that, in my opinion, could just as easily have been dealt with
in November at no additional cost to the people, and giving
the legislature adequate time to prepare.
What troubles me most, and one of the reasons why I
wanted to go into the history on this bill, is that a 210 page
banking bill, that in my opinion is a darn good product of your
Commerce Committee, has been tainted by one half of one
sentence which was possibly rendered unconstitutional after our
vote in the House by a decision of the Supreme Court. I hon-
estly believe that at the time, with the facts available to our
committee, we made the right decision; I also think we made
the right decision in relying on Dr. Lanzillotti, who was the
only impartial witness that testified before our committee on
this question. So we're here in a special session, dealing with
a question that could have waited 'til November, so we might
as well make the best of it.
We have the bill in front of us. I might explain to you
briefly that the compromise that was reached between the
Senate and the House and the Governor on Friday was to
extend sunset of the banking code to July 1, 1981, which
really would not have dealt with the issue at all. I was
not particularly happy with it, but fortunately over the week-
end we were able to re-visit the compromise and, we decided,
after consulting with everyone that had even the remotest
interest in the question, to take our bill as we had passed it
and delete the four lines that the Governor found to be un-
savory. So the bill before you now, I can assure you, has been
signed off by everybody that has the slightest interest in it,
it has been approved by the Governor's Office and his staff,
it has been approved by the Comptroller's Office, been approved
by the Senate, it's been approved by your House staff, the mem-
bers of the committee voted it out this morning, it has been
studied, industry has been consulted, the out-of-state banks
have signed off on it, the Florida Bankers' Association has
signed off, anyone that has had any interest in this issue, I
believe is now agreeable.
What we have done, by deleting this language, is to have no
specific reference at all to LPO's operated by foreign bank
holding company subsidiaries in this state. We have a banking
bill that does not prohibit, nor does it authorize, LPO's. It is
silent on the question, and I believe it will not do harm to
those banking interests that are operating in the state.

On motions by Mr. Moffitt, the rules were waived and SB

June e30, 1980









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



193.1145, Florida Statutes, as created by House Bill 4-D, 1980
Special Session, is amended to read:

193.1145 Interim assessment rolls.-
(1) It is the intent of the Legislature that no undue restraint
shall be placed on the ability of local government to finance its
activities in a timely and orderly fashion, and, further, that
just and uniform valuations for all parcels shall not be frus-
trated if the attainment of such valuations necessitates delaying
a final determination of assessments beyond the normal 12-
month period. Toward these ends, the Legislature hereby pro-
vides a method for levying and collecting ad valorem taxes
which may be used if:
(a) The property appraiser has been granted an extension of
time for completion of the assessment of all property pursuant
to s. 198.028(1) beyond September 1, or has otherwise not certi-
fied value pursuant to s. 200.065(1) by July 1 net sebmitted the
aaessimnt eell to the department en er before September go
e e eany aelater date so may be provided ie n an extensien e0dee
iscseed pursuant to r 1039023(4}; or
(b) All or part of the assessment roll of a county is dis-
approved pursuant to s. 193.114(6);
provided a local taxing authority brings a civil action in the
circuit court for the county in which relief is sought and the
court finds that a delay in the final determination of assess-
ments will substantially impair the ability of the authority to
finance its activities. Said action may be filed on or after July 1.
Upon such a determination, the court may order the use of the
last approved roll, adjusted to the extent practicable to reflect
additions, deletions, and changes in ownership, as the interim
roll when the action was filed under paragraph (a), or the
use of the current roll as the interim roll when the action was
filed under paragraph (b). Certification of value pursuant to s.
200.065(1) shall be made immediately following said determi-
nation by the court, when the action was filed under paragraph
(a). However, if the property appraiser recommends that in-
terim roll procedures be instituted and the governing body of
the county does not object, said civil action shall not be required.
The property appraiser shall notify the department and each
taxing authority within his jurisdiction prior to instituting
interim roll procedures without a court order.
Section 2. Paragraph (g) of subsection (2) and subsection
(5) of section 200.065, Florida Statutes, as amended by House
Bill 4-D, 1980 Special Session, are amended to read:
200.065 Method of fixing millage.-
(2) No millage shall be levied until a resolution or ordinance
has been approved by the governing board of the taxing au-
thority, which resolution or ordinance must be approved by said
taxing authority according to the following procedure:
(g) Notwithstanding other provisions of law to the con-
trary, a taxing authority may:
1. Expend moneys based on its tentative budget after adop-
tion pursuant to subsection (2) (c) and until such time as its
final budget is adopted pursuant to subsection (2) (d), only if
the fiscal year of the taxing authority begins prior to adoption
of the final budget, or, in the case of school districts, if the
fall term begins prior to adoption of the final budget; or-
2. Readopt its prior year adopted final budget, as amended,
and expend moneys based on said budget until such time as its
tentative budget is adopted pursuant to subsection (2)(c), only
if the fiscal year of the taxing authority begins prior to adop-
tion of the tentative budget. The readopted budget shall be
adopted by resolution without notice pursuant to this section at
a duly constituted meeting of the governing body.
(5) Prior to extension of the rolls pursuant to s. 193.122, the
property appraiser shall notify each taxing authority of the
aggregate change in the assessment roll, if any, from that cer-
tified pursuant to subsection (1), including but not limited
to those changes which result whieh esenlt4s from actions by the
property appraisal adjustment board or from corrections of



errors in the assessment roll. Each affected taxing authority
may adjust its adopted millage rate if the taxable value within
the jurisdiction of the taxing authority as certified pursuant
to subsection (1) is at variance from the taxable value shown



June 30, 1980



Florida Statutes, as amended by House Bill 4-D, 1980 Special
Session, to be the taxable value certified by the property
appraiser.
Section 9. This act shall take effect upon becoming a law;
provided that sections 1, 2, and 3 shall, except where expressly

on the roll to be extended. The adjustment shall be such that
the taxes computed by applying the adopted rate against the
certified taxable value are equal to the taxes computed by
applying the adjusted adopted rate to the taxable value on the
roll to be extended. However, no adjustment shall be made to
levies required by law to be a specific millage amount. Not
later than 3 days after receipt of notification pursuant to this
subsection, each affected taxing authority shall certify to the
property appraiser its adjusted adopted rate. Failure to so
certify shall constitute waiver of the adjustment privilege.
Section 3. Subsection (8) of section 196.1975, Florida Stat-
utes, as created by House Bill 4-D, 1980 Special Session, is
amended to read:
196.1975 Additional provisions for exempting property used
by homes for the aged.-In addition to criteria for granting
exemptions for charitable use of property set forth in other
sections of this chapter, homes for the aged shall be exempt to
the extent that they meet the following criteria:
(8) Any portion of such property used for nonexempt pur-
poses may be valued and placed upon the tax rolls separately
from any portion entitled to exemption pursuant to this chapter
seetien.
Section 4. Subsection (5) of section 64 of House Bill 4-D,
1980 Special Session, is amended to read:
Section 64. This act shall take effect upon becoming a law;
provided, that:
(5) Sections 3, 4, 10 and 58 shall take effect upon approval
of House Joint Resolution No. Senate Je4nt Resolutieon Ne
4844 or similar legislation at a special election to be held on
October 7, 1980 September -980; provided that section 10
shall apply with respect to assessments and taxes levied thereon
for 1980 and each year thereafter, and section 4 shall, given
said approval, take effect July 1, 1981.
Section 5. In no event shall any assessment roll for 1980
be extended pursuant to s. 193.122(2), Florida Statutes, or s.
197.072(6), Florida Statutes, as amended by House Bill 4-D,
1980 Special Session, prior to October 8, 1980.
Section 6. Each notice of proposed property taxes prepared
with respect to assessments for 1980 shall include the following
statement, which shall appear after the property appraiser's
phone number and location, as provided in s. 200.069(7), Florida
Statutes, as created by House Bill 4-D, 1980 Special Session:
"Your proposed taxes and current taxable value as shown above
do not reflect the increased homestead exemption to be voted
upon in the election held October 7, 1980." Alternatively, the
property appraiser may prepare said notice for 1980 to show
current year taxes both with and without the increased home-
stead exemption.
Section 7. With respect to the 1980 assessment roll of any
county, the time periods specified in ss. 200.065 and 194.032(1),
Florida Statutes, as amended by House Bill 4-D, 1980 Special
Session, shall be considered directory and may be shortened;
provided that no public hearing which is preceded by a mailed
notice shall occur earlier than 15 days following the mailing
of such notice, and any public hearing preceded by a newspaper
advertisement shall be held 3 days following publication of such
advertisement. It is the legislative intent that the property
appraiser, taxing authorities, and the tax collector cooperate
to the fullest extent possible to facilitate timely completion
of the assessment, budgeting, and tax collection processes.
Section 8. If, for 1980, the property appraiser has not certi-
fied value pursuant to s. 200.065(1), Florida Statutes, as
amended by House Bill 4-D, 1980 Special Session, to a school
district on or before July 25, 1980, the district may, for the
purpose of notification of a hearing on the tentative budget
pursuant to s. 200.065(2) (f)1., Florida Statutes, as amended by
House Bill 4-D, 1980 Special Session, and for the purpose of
adopting a tentative budget pursuant to s. 200.065(2) (c), Florida
Statutes, as amended by House Bill 4-D, 1980 Special Session,

tation of required local effort pursuant to s. 236.081(4) (a),

By Senator Frank and others-
SM 17-E-A memorial to the Congress and President of the
United States requesting full federal funding of public as-
sistance for Cuban and Haitian refugees.
WHEREAS, matters relating to immigration and nationality
are entirely matters of federal law, and
WHEREAS, it has been estimated that 140,000 Cuban and
Haitian refugees will have arrived in the United States during
the first 8 months of 1980, and
WHEREAS, it has been estimated that 60 percent of these
refugees will become residents of the State of Florida, and
WHEREAS, it has been estimated that at least one-third of
these refugees will receive some form of public assistance, and
WHEREAS, the Federal Government provides 50 percent of
the funding for public assistance normally given and 75 percent
of the funding for public assistance not normally given, and
WHEREAS, the decision of the Federal Government to allow
this influx of refugees places an undue burden on the people
of the State of Florida, and
WHEREAS, if the people of Florida attempt to meet this
burden without outside assistance, all Floridians will suffer a
diminution of essential services, and
WHEREAS, the people of the State of Florida believe that a
government that places a burden on another government should
also provide a means for meeting that burden, NOW, THERE-
FORE,
Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
That the Legislature of the State of Florida requests the
Congress and President of the United States to take all actions
necessary to provide 100 percent federal funding for all public
assistance granted to persons who during 1980 left Cuba or
Haiti to become residents of the United States.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this memorial
be transmitted to the presiding officers of the United States
Senate and the United States House of Representatives, to each
member of the Florida Congressional delegation, and to the
President of the United States.

On motion by Mr. Haben, agreed to by the required Consti-
tutional two-thirds vote, SM 17-E, contained in the above mes-
sage, was admitted for introduction, the Speaker having ruled
the measure was outside the purview of the Governor's Call.
