FIRST SPECIAL SESSION-"A" of 1980-1982



Tuesday, November 18, 1980


Journal of the House of Representatives for a Special Session of the Seventh Legislature under the Consti-
tution as Revised in 1968, convened by Proclamation of the Governor and held at the Capitol in the City of Talla-
hassee in the State of Florida, on Tuesday, November 18, 1980.



The House was called to order at 2:30 p.m. by the Honorable
Ralph H. Haben, Jr., Speaker, pursuant to the following procla-
mation:

PROCLAMATION

State of Florida
Executive Department
Tallahassee
TO THE HONORABLE MEMBERS OF THE FLORIDA
SENATE AND THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES:
WHEREAS, Bob Graham, Governor of Florida, on 13 October
1980 did respectfully petition the Florida Supreme Court to
amend its order of 21 December 1979 impaneling a statewide
grand jury, and

WHEREAS, the Florida Supreme Court on 14 October 1980
determined that it is without statutory authority to broaden
the scope of the Fourth Statewide Grand Jury and denied the
requested petition, and
WHEREAS, expanding the jurisdiction of the Fourth State-
wide Grand Jury rather than requiring the state to impanel a
fifth statewide grand jury would:
(1) Save the state the $20,000 necessary to impanel a new
statewide grand jury, and
(2) Save the state the two and one-half months of time
necessary to impanel a new statewide grand jury, and
(3) Allow the state to utilize the existing staff personnel
and expertise which has already been developed by the existing
statewide grand jury, and
(4) More effectively utilize state resources to combat the
drug trafficking problem in Florida.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BOB GRAHAM, Governor of the
State of Florida, by virtue of the power and authority vested
in me by Article III, Section 3(c)(1), Florida Constitution, do
hereby proclaim as follows:
1. That the Legislature of the State of Florida be and is
hereby convened in special session at the Capitol, Talla-
hassee, Florida, commencing at approximately 2:30 p.m.
on Tuesday, the 18th day of November, 1980, and ending
at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, the 18th day of November, 1980.
2. That the Legislature is convened for the sole purpose of
considering the enactment of legislation granting the



Florida Supreme Court authority to expand the juris-
diction of the statewide grand jury upon petition by the
Governor, by amending Chapter 905, Florida Statutes.
J IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have
Shereunto set my hand and caused the
Great Seal of the State of Florida to
be affixed to this proclamation con-
V. evening the Legislature in special ses-
i sion at the Capitol, this 17th day of
November, 1980.

Honorable George Firestone
Secretary of State
Dear Mr. Secretary:



July 4, 1980



By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida under
the provisions of Article III, Section 8 of the Constitution of
the State of Florida, I hereby withhold my approval of and
transmit to you with my objections House Bill 940 enacted by
the Sixth Legislature of Forida under the Florida Constitution
1968 Revision, during the regular session of 1980, and entitled:
"An act relating to workers' compensation; amending s.
440.13() and (2), Florida Statutes; providing that an in-
jured employee shall have the right to make the initial selec-
tion of a physician, surgeon, other recognized practitioner,
nurse, or hospital directing or supervising remedial treatment,
care, and attendance furnished to the employee by the em-
ployer pursuant to law; requiring the employer to furnish
a list of health care providers from which the employee shall
choose, such list to contain representatives of all health care
providers listed in s. 440.13(3)(d); excluding pharmacists;
providing an effective date."
The bill would mandate that employers provide injured em-
ployees with a list of health care providers to include the names
of two physicians, osteopaths, chiropractors, podiatrists, op-
tometrists, and dentists from which the employee would make
a selection.
Prior to the revision of the workers' compensation law by
the 1979 Legislature, Florida employers were charged some
of the highest workers' compensation premiums in the nation.
This had the effect of deterring investment by manufacturers
from outside the State, and forcing some Florida employers to
move their operations to other states. The changes adopted by
the 1979 Legislature were an attempt to lower or at least
stabilize premiums and remove the workers' compensation sys-
tem as a negative factor in industry location decisions.

November 18, 1980



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



The revised workers' compensation law has not been in effect
long enough for its benefits to be fully realized. We should let
the system operate without additional major changes until its
effectiveness can be evaluated. Any erosion in the effectiveness
of the 1979 workers' compensation law could again make work-
ers' compensation a deterrent in Florida's economic develop-
ment efforts.
For the above reasons, I am withholding my approval of House
Bill 940, Regular Session of the Legislature, commencing on
April 8, 1980, and do hereby veto the same.

Dear Mr. Secretary:
By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida under
the provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of
the State of Florida, I hereby withhold my approval of and
transmit to you with my objections House Bill 1330 enacted
by the Sixth Legislature of Florida under the Florida Constitu-
tion 1968 Revision, during the Regular Session of 1980, and
entitled:
"An act relating to motor vehicle records; amending s.
322.201, Florida Statutes, authorizing the use of computer
copies in certain court proceedings; eliminating certification
by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles of
certain records; permitting access to departmental computer
records under certain circumstances; amending s. 322.26(2),
Florida Statutes, 1978 Supplement, providing for the manda-
tory revocation of the driver's license of any person driving
or being in control of a motor vehicle while in possession of
a controlled substance or entering a plea of nolo contender
with respect to such offense; providing for the issuance of
separate traffic citations under certain circumstances; pro-
viding an effective date."
The bill mandates that the Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles revoke the driver's license of any person
convicted of driving a motor vehicle while "in possession of a
substance controlled under Chapter 893."
The language used in the bill fails to clarify that only illegal
possession of a controlled substance under Chapter 893 would
result in revocation of driving privileges. The bill raises the
question of whether a physician, a drug manufacturer's rep-
resentative or any patient with a legal prescription drug in a
motor vehicle could be subjected to mandatory revocation of
their driving privileges.
Of greater significance, this language in the bill is an
over reaction to the drug abuse problem, and is likely to be
declared unconstitutional. Even illegal possession of a controlled
substance in a motor vehicle is not reasonably related to the
safe operation of th e motor vehicle and appropriate grounds
for revocation of driving privileges.
I have been for some time, and continue to be, committed to
a strong fight against illegal importation, sale and use of
controlled substances; however, mandating revocation of driving
privileges for possession of a controlled substance, without the
substance being used while driving, is unreasonable and likely
to be ruled unconstitutional.
For the above reasons, I am withholding my approval of
House Bill 1330, Regular Session of the Legislature, commenc-
ing on April 8, 1980, and do hereby veto the same.
Sincerely,
BOB GRAHAM

Honorable George Firestone

July 10, 1980



Dear Mr. Secretary:
By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida under
the provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of
the State of Florida, I hereby withhold my approval of and
transmit to you with my objections House Bill 1620 enacted
by the Sixth Legislature of Florida under the Florida Constitu-
tion, 1968 Revision, during the Regular Session of 1980, and
entitled:
"An act relating to soil and water conservation; amending s.
582.16, Florida Statutes, providing for addition of territory
to a soil and water conservation district or removal of terri-
tory therefrom administratively by the Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Services; amending s. 582.19(1) and
(2), Florida Statutes, providing for qualifications and compen-
sation of supervisors; amending s. 582.29, Florida Statutes,
authorizing contractural agreements between soil and water
conservation districts and certain other entities; amending
s. 582.30, Florida Statutes, providing for a majority vote
with respect to referendums for the discontinuance of soil
and water conservation districts and providing for the dis-
continuance of soil and water conservation districts; amending
s. 582.32(2), Florida Statutes, relating to the time period
for the discontinuance of districts; providing for a referendum
on abolition of the Pinellas County soil and water conserva-
tion districts; providing an effective date."
The bill as originally introduced, was for the purpose of
providing for adjustments to soil and water conservation district
boundaries, and to provide for certain procedures relating to the
operations of the districts. However, during floor action on the
bill, three amendments were added which could have substantial
impact on the operation of these districts.
One amendment provides that when a majority rather than
two thirds or more of the qualified voters in a referendum have
voted for the discontinuance of the district, the department
shall certify that the continued operation of the district is not
administratively practical and feasible.
A second amendment would change the time the department
entertains petitions for the discontinuance of any district from
not more often than once in five years to not more often than
once in two years.
A third amendment provides that the Board of County
Commissioners of Pinellas County may, within twelve months
after the effective date of the act, call and hold a referendum
during any regular or special election for the purpose of deter-
mining whether the Pinellas County Soil and Water Conserva-
tion District shall be abolished.
I am unaware of any statewide problems that these amend-
ments address. On the contrary, I am advised that they are the
result of concerns in the Pinellas Soil and Water Conservation
District. While the amendments may have the effect of solving
the problems as perceived by the Pinellas County District, it
is not at all apparent these changes will be beneficial to the soil
and water conservation programs in the other sixty districts.
On the contrary, the programs of the soil and water conservation
districts require a sustained commitment to their existence if
they are to carry out their purposes. These amendments would
undermine this needed stability.
A recent study by the Governor's Resource Management Task
Force recognized a need to protect our agricultural lands. The
soil and water conservation districts can provide a very valuable
resource in this effort. Rather than enacting legislation which
could have the effect of weakening our efforts in this most
vital area, I believe we should provide the necessary tools to
strengthen these programs.
This bill poses serious constitutional questions. It would pro-
vide a separate procedure for the discontinuance of one local
soil and water conservation district. While this is in contra-
vention of statewide uniformity and control, it also makes the
bill a "local special law" in violation of Section 10 of Article
III, Florida Constitution. Further, such provision in the bill
raises questions of unconstitutionality on the basis of Housing
Authority of the City of St. Petersburg v. City of St. Peters-
burg, 287 So.2d 307 (Fla. 1973). The Housing Authority court
pointed out that when statutes relate "to particular subdivisions
or portions of the State, or to particular places of classified

locality" they are local laws. This special classification in Sec-
tion Six of the bill renders the bill a local law and thereby
requires that the constitutional procedures necessary to enact
local legislation be followed. Here, such procedures were not
followed and the bill would likely fail under the constitutional
challenge.
For the above reasons, I am withholding my approval of
House Bill 1620, Regular Session of the Legislature, commencing
on April 8, 1980, and do hereby veto the same.

BOB GRAHAM

Dear Mr. Secretary:
By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida under
the provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of
the State of Florida, I hereby withhold my approval of and
transmit to you with my objections House Bill 1865, enacted
by the Sixth Legislature of Florida under the Florida Consti-
tution, 1968 Revision, during the Regular Session of 1980, and
entitled:
An act related to appropriations; creating s. 1.05, Florida
Statutes; providing for construction of qualifying or restrict-
ing language in appropriations acts; amending s. 216.351,
Florida Statutes; conforming to the act provisions relating to
planning and budgeting; providing an effective date.
This bill allows qualifying or restrictive language contained
in acts providing for appropriations to displace any law or ad-
ministrative rule in conflict with the qualification or restriction.
Article III, Section 6, of the Constitution of the State of Florida,
states that "Every law shall embrace but one subject and mat-
ter properly connected therewith, and the subject shall be
briefly expressed in the title. No law shall be revised or
amended by reference to its title only. Laws to revise or amend
shall set out in full the revised or amended act, section, sub-
section, or paragraph of a section." Although House Bill 1865
does not allow for amending or revising substantive legislation
in conflict with qualifying or restricting language in appropria-
tion bills, the practical effect of displacing existing legislation is
the same as amending or revising the act. Additionally provid-
ing for qualifications or restrictions to displace any law or
administrative rule strongly suggests that the bill contemplates
that appropriation bills will be allowed to embrace more than
one subject. I feel that on these two points, the bill violates
the intent of the Constitution.
The legal considerations notwithstanding, temporarily dis-
placing substantive law for the expedience of making appropri-
ations without full and proper debate of each issue carries with
it the potential for abuse that greatly outweighs any benefit
to be gained. I cannot accept this change as either a necessary
or desirable change to the legislative process.
For the above reasons, I am hereby withholding my approval
of House Bill 1865, Regular Session of the Legislature, commenc-
ing on April 8, 1980, and do hereby veto same.
Sincerely,
BOB GRAHAM
Governor

This bill consists of 53 sections. Many of them are highly
beneficial to postsecondary education. Among the positive pro-
visions of this legislation are those that improve planning and
coordination of our universities, community colleges, and area
vocational-technical centers; enlarge the size of the Board of



5



Regents and reduce the length of terms for Regents; provide
an additional revenue source for student financial assistance;
and improve the ability of the State Board of Education to pro-
vide policy leadership. Some of the other technical sections offer
improvements related to the State's two principal educational
objectives, providing opportunity and achieving academic excel-
lence.
Despite the singular benefits derived from these sections, the
standard by which this bill must be judged is its overall contri-
bution to our long-term goal of enhancement of the quality of
education at all levels in the State of Florida. This goal is not
achievable in the next fiscal year or in the next biennium.
Quality education can only result from the commitment of
decades of unified support among educators, public officials
and concerned parents and citizens. The attainment of this goal
by our state universities will emerge from the following condi-
tions: first, higher education policy must be set by a governing
board of independent citizens who serve as an intermediary be-
tween the necessarily protected freedoms of the academic com-
munity and the equally necessary responsibility of political
institutions in our democratic society to be responsive to the
public will. Without such a functioning intermediary, higher
education will suffer from the isolation of the academic com-
munity or from disruptive political intrusions.
A second prerequisite for unified support is the development
of a long-term strategy for quality improvement by the inde-
pendent governing board. This plan cannot be developed in
isolation from the academic community or the political institu-
tions, for it requires the support of both to be successful. It
cannot be focused on a single biennial budget, but must reflect
a commitment to a policy of quality improvement that will re-
main in place through the end of this century.
Third, unity of support requires intensive coordination among
the various sectors of postsecondary education, public and pri-
vate; university, community college and vocational-technical.
While variation in the mission of these sectors may appropri-
ately require separate governing boards, these boards must
recognize the impact of their decisions on the other component
sectors, and plan their futures in consort.
Finally, quality educatioaon can only be achieved by the provi-
sion of adequate and focused resources to educational programs.
These resources must be sufficient to provide the library, equip-
ment, physical facilities, and compensation levels necessary
to attract and maintain outstanding faculty and staff dedicated
to the achievement of high standards of educational quality.
Given the ever-present limitations on the resources of the
State and the increasing demand for commitment of resources
to other State needs, the governing board must clearly identify
the standards to be achieved by each educational program and
focus the allocation of limited resources accordingly. While
each program should strive to achieve the highest standards
possible, the allocation of resources must reflect the differenti-
ation of mission between programs emphasizing graduate re-
search and those emphasizing undergraduate instruction; be-
tween professional programs and traditional liberal arts pro-
grams; and so forth. The achievement of quality education re-
quires that these decisions be made by a strong and independent
governing board.
In making a decision to veto this bill, I have concluded that
its overall impact is to diffuse support for higher education.
Decisions made in this bill abrogate the independence of the
Board of Regents, violating a principle which I have identified
as a prerequisite to achievement of the goal of quality educa-
tion. Other decisions would implement contradictory policies
that reflect disparate political considerations, especially with
regard to medical education. Still other decisions blur the re-
sponsibility for assessing the State's educational needs. This
would lead to further diffusion rather than to sharper focus-
ing of limited resources.
The Legislature has demonstrated that it strongly supports
the goal of quality education. It has also demonstrated a lack
of confidence in the Board of Regents and has translated this



judgement into a shattering indictment. I can sympathize with
that indictment, for reasons I shall indicate, but I cannot sup-
port it for my support would deny a basic prerequisite to the
achievement of the goal of quality enhancement that I share
with the Legislature.



November 18, 1980



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Quality education requires a functional intermediary between
academic and political institutions. In vetoing this bill, it is my
intention to strengthen the ability of the Board of Regents to
function as this intermediary for our universities. I concur in
much of the basis of the legislative criticism of the Board of
Regents. By my veto, I reject the proposition that a lack of
decisive leadership by the Regents should be cured by substitu-
tion of the legislative process as a device for making educa-
tional policy.
Rather, I propose an agenda to restore the confidence of the
Legislature in the Board of Regents as a necessary functioning
intermediary between our universities and our elected political
leadership. I am aware of impending changes in the Board of
Regents. The expiration of terms will be the occasion for the
appointment of new leadership to strengthen the political inde-
pendence of this important and prestigious group. The appoint-
ments I recommend for this Board will be among the most im-
portant I make as Governor.
I have conferred recently with both the Chairman of the
Board of Regents and the Chairman of the Search Committee
for a new Chancellor. I have urged them to complete their
search at an early date and to identify and attract a leader
committed to representing the universities in the Legislature
and to the public at large, to coordinating the universities with
the other public and private sectors of higher education, and
to confronting directly the State's needs for educational oppor-
tunities and qualitatively distinguished postsecondary education
programs.
The new leadership of the Board of Regents must assume re-
sponsibility for addressing some of the key elements in educa-
tional planning that House Bill 7-D recognizes as important for
the future. The method by which House Bill 7-D passed the
Legislature is in part a response to the absence of clear,
realistic, and well-ordered priorities for the universities. The
Regents are the body that must propose and justify the goals
that will guide the Legislative and Executive branches in pro-
viding resources for realizing the objectives of academic quality.
The merger issue should be addressed directly by the Regents.
All nine universities, at one time or another during the last
four years, have been affected by designs for merger. This ad-
versely affects faculty and staff morale, adds to student and
public uncertainty, and hinders private fund-raising, particu-
larly matching funds for the innovative Eminent Scholars En-
dowment Fund established by the Legislature in 1979. The
Regents must take the initiative to review the options and rec-
ommend feasible alternatives or make a compelling case against
any mergers.
The Regents should also develop a comprehensive policy re-
garding undergraduate education. There is a tendency, par-
ticularly among educators, to recognize the quality of graduate,
research-oriented programs as the standard of excellence by
which an institution is judged. I reject this exclusionary stand-
ard as it directly infers a lack of concern for the majority of
students whose collegiate education is a time in which critical
life choices are made and lasting personal values are formed.
The current policy debate surrounding the addition of lower
divisions to our upper-division universities as well as the con-
version of the university system to the semester calendar afford
a significant opportunity for the Regents to formulate goals
and policies for undergraduate education.
Any initiative for extending the development of the present
upper-level institutions into four-year universities should
emerge from the Regents. Those upper-level universities desir-
ing to convert to four-year status should appropriately make
their case to the governing board as part of their legislative
budget request. The failure of the Board of Regents to act
decisively on its own study of this subject in 1979 has invited
legislative initiative.
Medical education is increasingly demanding of State re-
sources, including those available for all education. The Legis-
lature has adopted conflicting policies on this important issue.
This bill includes legislative intent that the merger of the
University of North Florida into the University of Florida
"should necessarily include" the assumption of University Hos-
pital in JacksonviIle as a state institution. This significant



policy decision was made prior to an analysis of its fiscal im-
pact, an action I find unacceptable. The bill also mandates a
feasibility study on the creation of a teaching hospital at the
University of South Florida in Tampa.



While these decisions move in the direction of state manage-
ment of teaching hospitals, other legislation converts the Shands
Teaching Hospital at the University of Florida to a private,
non-profit corporation. While these decisions indicate a policy
of locating state teaching hospitals in urban areas, other legis-
lation provides a commitment of a $40 million loan for sub-
stantial expansion of the Shands facility in Gainesville.
The Board of Regents is and should be the body to make major
recommendations to the State Board of Education and the
Legislature for the quality and scope of medical and health-
related instruction, research, and service in the decade ahead.
The Regents must exert leadership in formulating a clear and
comprehensive set of policies or see the political process decide
these questions. In the recent session, the conflicting policies
on medical education passed the Legislature for want of Re-
gents' leadership in this important area.
A recurring theme in the effort to expand the economic base
of our State is the integral relation between the location of
high technology industry and the availability of educational
programs in the sciences, engineering, and technology. The
Board of Regents should give high priority to a statewide pro-
gram in engineering education, including engineering extension
programs and continuing education.
Coordination with other sectors is and should be a prime
responsibility of the Regents. The public universities have im-
portant articulation with the community colleges, and they
should aggressively develop new and closer liaison to contract
with the private colleges and universities. Failure to respond
more sympathetically to both these needs for coordination will
again invite legislative initiative.
The fulfillment of the agenda for the Board of Regents that I
have outlined above is critical to the achievement of our long-
term goal of quality education. The process by which education-
al policy decisions are made must be rational and involve a
broad range of individuals to provide unity of support.
A veto is usually a negative act. In this case I am hopeful
that the overall effect will be positive. To offset some of the
negative effects of this veto, I am taking two steps within my
authority as Governor.
First, I am advised by legal counsel that the proviso language
in the appropriations bill that ties the release of supplemental
funds for State University System faculty salaries to the enact-
ment of House Bill 7-D is unconstitutional. As I indicated above,
nationally competitive salary levels are a necessary prerequisite
to a national standard of excellence in our State University
System. Therefore, I shall take appropriate legal action to
release these funds for their important intended purpose.
Second, by Executive Order, I shall reconstitute the Florida
Postsecondary Education Commission, an advisory body already
in existence. Previously, I announced my intention to give the
Cabinet two years to show that it can function effectively as a
State Board of Education. The Postsecondary Education Com-
mission will be its advisory body to help make good on this
commitment. This Commission will be located administratively
in the Office of the Commissioner of Education. Its primary
task will be to recommend a master plan for postsecondary edu-
cation in Florida to the State Board of Education. Such a plan
must identify the needs of the State for postsecondary educa-
tion programs and recommend fiscally and educationally sound
policy alternatives for the fulfillment of these needs by public
or independent universities, community colleges, and vocational-
technical schools.
The adoption of a master plan by the State Board of Educa-
tion is intended to improve coordination among the public and
independent sectors of postsecondary education and among the
university, community college and vocational-technical systems
within the public sector. These concerns of statewide coordina-
tion are properly the responsibility of the State Board of Edu-
cation. Responsibility for planning and guiding the development
of individual institutions will remain with the appropriate gov-
erning boards of the institutions.



As I stated earlier in this message, our shared goal of quality
education requires unity in support of our educational system.
While change is the law of life, in education as well as in every
other segment of society, Florida needs a period of sustained
support for postsecondary education. During this period, we

should concentrate the use of our resources effectively and care-
fully on achieving a high quality of teaching, research, and serv-
ice that will strengthen our State in its economic, civic, and cul-
tural development.
I invite Regents, Cabinet Officers, Community College Trust-
ees, District School Board Members, Legislators, and all other
citizens to join in providing the unity and stability necessary
to the realization of our educational goals.
For all of the above reasons, I am withholding my approval of
House Bill 7-D enacted by the Sixth Legislature of Florida
under the Florida Constitution, 1968 Revision, during the First
Special Session of 1980, and do hereby veto the same.
Sincerely,
BOB GRAHAM
Governor

-and the above vetoed bill (1980 Special Session), together
with the Governor's objections thereto, was referred to the
Select Committee on Rules & Calendar.



Honorable George Firestone
Secretary of State



July 10, 1980



Dear Mr. Secretary:
By the authority vested in me as Governer of Florida, under
the provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of
the State of Florida, I hereby withhold my approval of portions
of House Bill 1796 as set forth herein with my objections and
do hereby approve the remainder of House Bill 1796 enacted by
the Sixth Legislature of Florida under the Florida Constitution,
1968 Revision, during the Regular Session of 1980 and entitled:
An act relating to educational capital outlay; providing appro-
priations for specified capital outlay projects from the Public
Education Capital Outlay and Debt Service Trust Fund to
the district school boards, State Board of Education, Board
of Regents, community college boards of trustees, Florida
School for the Deaf and Blind, and Shands Teaching Hospital
and Clinics, Incorporated; providing appropriations from the
General Revenue Fund to various educational agencies for
specified projects; amending s. 234.211, Florida Statutes,
relating to the use of school buses for the transportation dis-
advantaged; adding subsection (9) to s. 427.011, Florida
Statutes, to provide for the definition of "joint-use program";
adding a new paragraph (d) and paragraph (h) to s. 427.-
012(1), Florida Statutes, to include the Commissioner of
Education and a citizen advocate appointed by the Governor
on the Coordinating Council on the Transportation Disadvan-
taged; adding subsection (11) to s. 427.013, Florida Statutes,
to require the council to approve and coordinate joint-use
programs; authorizing appropriations from the Capital Im-
provement Fee Trust Fund; repealing section 4 of chapter
79-212, Laws of Florida, relating to educational capital outlay;
repealing s. 235.221, Florida Statutes, relating to high priority
facilities construction; providing for future repeal of specified
sections in chapter 235, Florida Statutes, relating to educa-
tional facilities, and providing that positions in the Office
of Educational Facilities Construction and current expendi-
tures shall be abolished, subject to legislative review; pro-
viding an effective date.
I have reviewed the appropriations in this general appropria-
tions bill and, with the exceptions noted below, I find it accept-
able.
Subsection (1) of section 2 contains a specific appropriation,
on line 19 of page 8, of $6,845,000 from the General Revenue
Fund to the Board of Regents for improvements in athletic
facilities at Florida State University. The expenditure of general
revenue funds on facilities intended primarily for use in inter-
collegiate athletic programs represents a major change in State
policy. This item has not been identified as a priority need by
the Board of Regents and no plans for the expenditure of these
funds have been submitted to the Board of Regents by the
University. I cannot support an expenditure which is not
justified under procedures established by statute and State
Board of Education rule for the determination of educational
facility needs of the State and which capriciously nullifies
longstanding State policy. Therefore, the specific appropriation
on line 19 of page 8, which reads as follows, is hereby vetoed:



"FSU Athletic Facilities Improvements



$6,845,000"



Subsection (1) of Section 2 contains a specific appropriation,
on line 15 of page 8, of $192,000 from the General Revenue Fund
to the Board of Regents for equipment for the C. V. Whitney
Marine Laboratory of the University of Florida. This item
has not been identified as a priority need by the Board of
Regents and no plans for the expenditure of these funds have
been submitted to the Board of Regents by the University. I
cannot support an expenditure which is not justified under pro-
cedures established by statute and State Board of Education
rule for the determination of educational facility needs of the
State. Therefore, the specific appropriation on line 15 of page
8, which reads as follows, is hereby vetoed:



"UF C. V. Whitney Marine Lab Equipment



$192,000"



Subsection (1) of section 2 contains a specific appropriation,
on line 28 of page 8, of $200,000 from the General Revenue
Fund to the Board of Regents for planning of parking facilities
at the Stadium of the University of Florida. The expenditure of
General Revenue Funds on facilities intended primarily for
use in intercollegiate athletic programs represents a major
change in State policy. This item has not been identified as
a priority need by the Board of Regents and no plans for the
expenditure of these funds have been submitted to the Board
of Regents by the University. I cannot support an expenditure
which is not justified under procedures established by statute
and State Board of Education rule for the determination of
educational facility needs of the State and which capriciously
nullifies longstanding State policy. Therefore, the specific appro-
priation on line 28 of page 8, which reads as follows, is hereby
vetoed:



"UF Stadium parking facilities (planning)



$200,000"



The specific appropriations of House Bill 1796 which are set
forth herein with my objections are hereby vetoed and all
other portions of House Bill 1796 are hereby approved.
Sincerely,
BOB GRAHAM
Governor

On motion by Rep. Bell, the rules were waived and the
House agreed to take up the line item vetoes as set forth in the
veto message on HB 1796.

Rep. Bell moved that the item of Subsection (1) of Section
2, line 19 of page 8 ("FSU Athletic Facilities Improvements
$6,845,000") be reinstated, the veto of the Governor to the
contrary notwithstanding. The vote was:
