This Court is cognizant of the Legislature's desire to ap-
proach the budgeting process on a biennial basis. For this
reason, the Court has identified clear needs which will exist
in Fiscal Year 1982-1983, and based upon information currently
available, certifies that there will be the need for at least
the following new judicial positions, effective July 1, 1982, for
the continued, effective operation of the courts of this State.

The Court wishes to note a number of factors which could
result in the need to later certify certain additional judgeships
for the second year of the biennium:
(1) While we do not certify the need for an additional
permanent judgeship for the First Appellate District in Fiscal
Year 1981-1982, we recommend that the Legislature continue to
make available one retired judge throughout the first year of
the biennium and appropriate sufficient funds for this purpose
in addition to the amounts already being requested for retired
judges' compensation. As we pointed out in last year's certifi-
cation, the Court feels there is a need to confirm the recent
increase in filings over a longer period of time before concluding
that this is a permanent condition. Although the First District
continues to have the largest number of pending cases, this may
still be due to the large number of cases transferred from the
Industrial Relations Commission in 1979, and may abate with
time. We will continue to observe the rate of new filings oc-
curring in the First District and may find it necessary to
certify the need for an additional permanent judgeship in the
second year of the biennium, especially if the so-called TRIM
bill (Chapter 80-274, Laws of Florida) begins to have an impact
on the Court's caseload.
(2) The First Judicial Circuit has found it necessary to make
extensive use of retired judges over the past year. Their total
usage during calendar year 1980 was 278 judge days, second
only to the Seventeenth Circuit's total of 351 judge days. While
the filing per judge ratio alone in the First Circuit does not
justify a certification of need at this time, the Court is aware
of the extensive travel demands which occur in large rural
circuits such as the First and which adversely affect the
judge-time available for handling a normal caseload. The Court
will monitor the First Circuit's use of retired judges to deter-
mine if it continues during the first year of the biennium to a
degree which will demonstrate the need for an additional perma-
nent judge for Fiscal Year 1982-1983.
(3) While caseload statistics and other observable factors do
not at this time justify a certification of need for the Second
Judicial Circuit, the anticipated impact of the so-called TRIM
bill (Chapter 80-274, Laws of Florida) may necessitate a certifi-
cation in the second year of the biennium. The Legislature
recognized the possibility of an adverse effect on the Second
Circuit when it passed the TRIM bill by funding an additional
judicial position in that legislation, conditioned on Supreme
Court certification. See Section 16, Chapter 80-274, Laws of
Florida. Attempts to estimate the number of such proceedings



which may eventuate have been unavailing so far. Hence the
Court would prefer to observe the actual impact of this legis-
lation before making this certification.
(4) Furthermore, pursuant to Article V, Section 9, Florida
Constitution, which requires the Court to make an annual
certification of judicial need to the Legislature, the Court must
reserve the right to exercise its responsibility to later certify
additional judgeships for the second year of the biennium in
the event facts not now known become apparent which would
make such action essential.
The process by which the Court determined the need for
these additional judgeships began in the fall, 1980, with the
distribution of caseload and population statistics to the Chief
Judge in each District Court of Appeal as well as each of the
State's twenty Judicial Circuits. Based upon that data and the
needs which were perceived within each District and Circuit to
meet their constitutional directive of providing all persons in
Florida with equal access to the courts without delay, the Chief
Judges submitted to the Court their recommendations for new
judicial manpower. For the first year of the biennium (Fiscal
Year 1981-1982), the Chief Judges asked that the Court consider
four additional District Court judges, twenty new Circuit Court
judges and twelve new County Court judgeships. For the second
year of the biennium (Fiscal Year 1982-1983), the Chief Judges
requested that the Court consider four additional District Court
judges, twelve new Circuit judgeships and six additional County
Court judges.
During December, 1980 and January, 1981, the Chief Justice
and State Courts Administrator traveled to those sixteen cir-
cuits requesting new judgeships in order to evaluate their
requests. Participating in these meetings were state attorneys,
public defenders, county commissioners and other local officials,
local Bar representatives, and legislative members and staff,
in addition to judicial officers and personnel. At the same time,
additional statistical data was gathered and analyzed.
Following the Chief Justice's visits and analysis, the Court
considered the requests of the Districts and Circuits, and the
views of the Chief Justice on their needs. There were several
criteria used by the Court in this process, including:
1. Caseload statistics, known and projected
2. Growth, nature and projections of population
3. Number of attorneys
4. Use and availability of retired judges
5. Presence of non-lawyer judges
6. Geographic size of the circuit
7. Presence of state facilities
8. Law enforcement activities and policies, including any
substantial commitment of additional resources for state at-
torneys and public defenders
9. Time since the last new judgeship was authorized
10. Complexity of cases
11. Prior certifications which were not authorized.
The process of certifying the need for additional judgeships
over the next biennium is not a process by which need can be
objectively quantified through the use of a simple equation.
Unforeseen developments have an impact upon the judiciary of
this State and result in needs which cannot be foreseen, such
as occurred with the refugee influx in South Florida recently.
The above criteria are considered by the Court in this process,
but are not weighted in relation to each other, nor are they
compressed into a mathematical formula which will predict
with certainty the needs of the judiciary.
It will be noted that the Court's recommendation certifies



to the Legislature nine fewer judicial positions in the first
year, and seventeen fewer judicial positions in the second year
of the biennium than have been requested by the District and
Circuit Courts. Thus, over the biennium, the Court's recommend-
ation of thirty-two new judgeships is a total of twenty-six
new judgeships fewer than have been requested by the District
and Circuit Courts.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



FINDINGS
DISTRICT COURTS OF APPEAL
The Court has reviewed the requests of the Appellate Dis-
tricts on the basis of standards recommended by the Appellate
Court Structure Commission in 1979. As noted in the certifica-
tion order filed April 2, 1979, the Florida Appellate Court
Structure Commission composed of judges, lawyers, laymen
and legislators concluded that to be effective and produce
quality decisions, appellate judges should be principally re-
sponsible for review of not more than 250 cases, annually. 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). That caseload objective was taken
into consideration by the Court in its certification orders for
1979 and 1980. Although these certifications were consciously
short of the articulated caseload standard, nonetheless, attain-
ment of that standard has remained the goal for the appellate
judiciary of this state. Of course, the objective is accentuated
for the district courts of appeal by virtue of the passage of
the recent constitutional amendment limiting the jurisdiction
of the Supreme Court which accords true finality to district
court decisions without statewide precedential effect. While this
certification still does not achieve the desired standard it,
nevertheless, moves us closer to the stated goal.
Second Appellate District. The Second District currently has
eight judges. The need for an additional judge in the first year
of the biennium is certified.
Some of the dominant factors upon which this certification
is based are that the Second District has the highest total
population as well as the highest population per judge of any
of the Appellate Districts. See, In re Advisory Opinion to Gov-
ernor, 374 So.2d 959, 968 (Fla. 1979), (Overton, J., concurring).
Case filings now existing and as projected justify the need for
an additional judge so as to approach the standard 250 cases
per judge adopted by this Court.
Third Appellate District. Currently, the Third District Court
of Appeal has eight judges, and the need for one additional
judge is certified for the first year of the biennium.
In 1979, two new judges were certified, but only one was
authorized. The need for the second judge certified in 1979 has
not abated, but has increased. In addition, the dominant factors
considered by the Court in certifying this need are the high
number of filings and projected filings for the Third District,
as well as their increasing number of cases pending at the end
of calendar year 1980 over those pending at the end of
calendar year 1979. The Court feels that the need for this ad-
ditional judge is evident in the first year of the biennium, al-
though the Third District Court of Appeal did not request an
additional judge until the second year of the biennium.
Fourth Appellate District. Currently, the Fourth District
Court of Appeal has eight judges and the need for one addition-
al judge in the first year of the biennium is certified.
The dominant factors considered by the Court in certifying
this need are the high number of pending cases at the end of
the last several calendar years, the growing population in the
area, and the high caseload per judge which, based upon the
Court's accepted standard of 250 cases per judge, justifies the
need for this additional judgeship.

CIRCUIT AND COUNTY COURTS
Apart from pure statistical data relating to case filings
in the following circuits which were considered by the Court, we
set forth below the paramount considerations prompting our
certification for the respective judicial circuits.
Sixth Judicial Circuit (Pinellas and Pasco Counties). There
are currently twenty-six Circuit and thirteen County Court
judges in the Sixth Circuit. The need for one additional Circuit
judge in each year of the biennium is certified. The dominant
factors considered by the Court in certifying this need are that
the Circuit ranks fifth in population per judge and eighth in



combined rankings of filings, attorneys and population per judge
ratios, the recent growth in northern Pinellas and Pasco Coun-
ties and the projected 34.3 percent growth between 1975 and
1985. Furthermore the anticipated opening of a new criminal
justice complex in mid-Pinellas County in the early part of
calendar year 1982 will affect the scheduling of cases and



will require more judge travel time to effectively service the
civil and criminal dockets if an additional judge is not au-
thorized in the second year of the biennium.
Seventh Judicial Circuit (Volusia, Flagler, St. Johns and
Putnam Counties). Currently, the Seventh Circuit has twelve
Circuit and eight County Court judges. The need for one
Circuit and one County Court judge in Volusia County is cer-
tified in the first year of the biennium.
The dominant factors considered by the Court in this certifi-
cation are that the Circuit ranked third in filings per Circuit
judge during 1980, the burgeoning arrest rate in Volusia
County according to the Department of Law Enforcement's 1979
Annual Report, the nature of the population including a very
high transient and tourist population as well as the projected
population increase of 33.9 percent from 1975 to 1985, and the
regular use of County Court judges on the Circuit bench.
The highest filing per County Court judge ratio in the State
is found in Volusia County.
Eighth Judicial Circuit (Alachua, Union, Bradford, Baker,
Gilchrist and Levy Counties). There are currently seven Cir-
cuit and nine County Court judges in the Eighth Circuit, and
the need for one additional Circuit judge in the first year of
the biennium is certified.
The dominant factors considered by the Court are the geo-
graphic size of the Circuit which consists of six counties
and which results in considerable travel time, the fact that
seven major correctional facilities as well as other state fa-
cilities are located in the Circuit, and the extensive use of
County Court judges on the Circuit bench which includes one
being used full time as a circuit judge for the past year.
However, increased county court caseloads preclude continued
use of this judge on the circuit bench. In addition, the public
defender in the Eighth Judicial Circuit has reported a dra-
matic increase in felony and juvenile cases compared with
last year which resulted in his request for a moratorium on
new assignments.
Ninth Judicial Circuit (Orange and Osceola Counties). There
are currently seventeen Circuit and twelve County Court judges
in the Ninth Circuit. The need for one additional Circuit judge
is certified in the first year of the biennium.
The dominant factors considered by the Court are the fact
that the Circuit ranks third in the ratio of attorneys per judge,
the nature of the population including a high number of tour-
ists and commuters, the need for an additional judge in the
Civil Division which has not had a new judge since 1972, and
the substantial planned development associated with both the
public and private sector in the Circuit.
Tenth Judicial Circuit (Polk, Highlands and Hardee Coun-
ties). There are currently twelve Circuit and eight County
Court judges in the Tenth Circuit, and the need for one addi-
tional Circuit judge in the first year of the biennium is certi-
fied.
The dominant factors considered in this certification are the
policies of the state attorney which appear to be resulting
in more jury trials due to an extensive no plea bargaining
policy, the high number of complex drug and organized crime
cases being reported in the Circuit, as well as the consider-
able travel time involved in the Circuit. In addition, the Cir-
cuit ranks fourth in its filing per judge ratio, and two of
its County Court judges are non-lawyers.
Eleventh Judicial Circuit (Dade County). The Eleventh Cir-
cuit currently has fifty-one Circuit and thirty-one County Court
judges. The need for four Circuit judges and one County Court
judge for Dade County is certified in the first year of the
biennium.
Since 1972, only five Circuit judgeships have been authorized.
During the same period of time, eight new County Court
judges were authorized. There is an expectation that Dade
County and the City of Miami will hire a total of an additional
400 law enforcement officers in the next year and that this,
along with the impact of minimum-mandatory sentencing laws,
will result in more cases being filed, as well as an increase in
the number of jury trials.



Ten branch courthouses are being operated in the Circuit
which has a total of twenty-six municipalities. First appearance
hearings are now held twice a day, seven days a week, and
will soon have to be held three times a day.

April 7, 1981










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Additional considerations are the sizable request for addi-
tional personnel for the state attorney in the next biennium,
the high number of attorneys per judge in the Circuit, which
ranks second in the State in this category, the highest number
of total filings in the State, and the significant tourist and
immigrant population which is affecting judicial caseload.
The additional County Court judge is necessary due to the
total caseload being experienced in the County courts which
is the largest of any county in the State in all filing categories,
and which ranks fourteenth in the State in filing per judge
ratio.
Twelfth Judicial Circuit (Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto
Counties). The Twelfth Circuit currently has nine Circuit and
six County Court judges. The need for one Circuit and one
County Court judge in Sarasota County is certified.
The dominant factors considered by the Court are that the
Circuit has had only one Circuit judgeship authorized since
1972, the fact that the Circuit ranks second in population per
Circuit judge, and ranks first in the State in combined ratios of
filings, attorneys and population per Circuit judge. The popu-
lation of the Circuit is projected to increase 43.1 percent
between 1975 and 1985. Sarasota County ranks fifth in its
ratio of total filings per County Court judge.
Thirteenth Judicial Circuit (Hillsborough County). The
Thirteenth Circuit currently has twenty-four Circuit and nine
County Court judges. The need for two additional County Court
judges is certified in the first year of the biennium.
The dominant factors considered by the Court are that the
County has had no new County Court judgeships since 1973,
the very high population per County Court judge in Hills-
borough County compared with other counties in the State,
and that Hillsborough County ranks second in the State in filings
per County Court judge.
Fifteenth Judicial Circuit (Palm Beach County). Currently,
the Fifteenth Circuit has eighteen Circuit and nine County
Court judges. In the first year of the biennium, the need
for one Circuit and one County Court judge for Palm Beach
County is certified and, in the second year of the biennium, the
need for an additional Circuit judge is certified.
The dominant factors considered by the Court are that County
Court judges have served on the Circuit bench over the past
year an average of 1.7 circuit judge years, delays of from
eight to twelve months are occurring before a trial can be
held after a motion to set a case for trial is filed, the pro-
jected 51 percent increase in population between 1975 and
1985, and the dramatic increase in the number of attorneys
since 1972. In addition, the state attorney has requested a sig-
nificant increase in staff over the next biennium.
In 1980, a County Court judgeship was certified, but was
not authorized and, since that time, county filings have in-
creased. Palm Beach County ranks third in the State in its ratio
of filings per County Court judge.
Seventeenth Judicial Circuit (Broward County). Currently,
the Seventeenth Circuit has thirty-six Circuit and fifteen County
Court judges. In the first year of the biennium, the need for
two Circuit and two County Court judges for Broward County
is certified and, in the second year of the biennium, the need for
two additional Circuit judges is certified.
There has been a 64 percent increase in population since
1970 from about 600,000 to approximately one million in 1980,
and projected growth between 1975 and 1985 is estimated to be
34.4 percent. There is also a very large tourist and transient
population, resulting in a population which may be character-
ized as non-static. In addition to these factors, other factors
considered by the Court are that the Circuit ranks eighth in
filings per Circuit judge and that the Circuit ranks second
in total filings, the second highest total number of attorneys
of any Circuit in the state, the very high juvenile caseload due
to a large number of runaways who arrive in the Fort Lauder-
dale area, and current delays of from one year to eighteen
months which are being experienced in obtaining a trial date.
In 1980 two County Court judgeships were certified but not
authorized and the need perceived at that time has not de-
creased. The County also ranks seventh in the State in filings
per County Court judge.



Nineteenth Judicial Circuit. (Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River
and Okeechobee Counties). The Nineteenth Circuit currently
has seven Circuit and six County Court judges. .The need for
one Circuit judge in the first year of the biennium is certified.



The dominant factors considered by the Court are the size
of the Circuit which requires extensive travel, a projected 53.8
percent population growth between 1975 and 1985, an increase
which is being experienced in complex drug cases as well as the
significant increase in staff which the state attorney is re-
questing over the next biennium. One circuit judgeship was
certified in 1980 but not authorized and since that time the
need for this additional judge has increased.
Twentieth Judicial Circuit (Collier, Lee, Hendry, Glades and
Charlotte Counties). Currently, there are nine Circuit and
eight County Court judges in the Twentieth Circuit. One addi-
tional Circuit and one additional County Court judgeship for
Lee County are certified in the first year of the biennium. In
the second year of the biennium, an additional circuit judge-
ship is certified.
The dominant factors considered by the court are the very
large geographical area of the Circuit which includes five
large counties, its very long and undeveloped coastline, the
dramatic increase in complex drug cases which is being ex-
perienced, the significant increase in resources requested by
the state attorney, the highest population per Circuit judge in
the State, the fact that it ranks third in combined ratios of
filings, attorneys and population per Circuit judge, and the
projected 68.9 percent increase in population between 1975 and
1985 in the Circuit, which is the highest in the State. In
addition, the number of attorneys in the Circuit has more than
doubled since 1972.
Lee County has the third highest number of jury trials in
the State and the last County Court judgeship authorized was
in 1975. The filing per County Court judge ratio in Lee
County ranks sixth in the State.

CERTIFICATION
Therefore, in accordance with Article V, Section 9, Florida
Constitution, we certify the need for the additional District,
Circuit and County Court judgeships indicated above. This Court
certifies that these judicial officers are necessary and we
recommend that they be made permanent by law and funded
by the State. In addition this Court recommends that the
Legislature make available to the first Appellate District one
'retired judge for Fiscal Year 1981-1982, with sufficient re-
sources specifically for this purpose.

Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Chief Justice and Members
of the Supreme Court, Mr. Lieutenant Governor, Members of
the Cabinet, Members of the Senate and the House of Repre-
sentatives, Citizens of Florida.

"*On April 12, 1980-the first refugees from the Mariel Boat-
lifts reached Florida shores. In the coming months 140,000
Cuban and Haitian Refugees will arrive and settle in our
State.

*May 9, 1980-the "Summit Venture" strikes the southern
span of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, killing 35.

*May 17, 1980-riot breaks out in Miami, raging for three
days. Eighteen people are killed, $100 million in damage re-
sults.

"*January 1, 1981-Census figures reveal that Florida not
only is the nation's fastest-growing State, but also has 10



of the 25 fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the country,
including Ft. Myers-Cape Coral, ranked number one.



*February 3, 1981-the second of two major freezes hits
the State, causing over $572 million in economic losses. Federal
emergency economic aid is denied to the State.
The past twelve months have at times been very rewarding.
"*August 25, 1980--schools reopen across Florida, with 21 of
42 schools previously on double-sessions resuming a single-
session schedule.
"*October 7, 1980-the people of Florida adopt major con-
stitutional changes under the "Five for Florida's Future" pro-
gram. These measures will increase economic development,
encourage energy conservation, and promote affordable housing.
"*January 5, 1981-the State Energy Office announces that
Floridians reduced their gasoline consumption the previous
year by 10.8%.
*February 18, 1981-employment figures revealed that 24.7%
of all jobs created in the nation during 1980 were created
here in Florida.
Each of these crises-each of these accomplishments-had
the force to draw away all our attention.

We did respond to these challenges. The people of Florida
have demonstrated their strength and commitment.

But we cannot allow crises or accomplishments to direct
us from Florida's primary goals. It is against these goals that
we as state leaders, and this generation of Floridians will be
judged.

What are these goals?

"*Providing an expanding economy and the institutions neces-
sary to support it.

"*Preservation of a quality of life and a state of natural
beauty unexcelled on this planet.

*The chance for every Floridian to reach full potential
through a quality educational system and human services
which emphasize individual respect and independence.

"*The provision of justice, security, and safety under law.

We embark on this 1981 Legislative Session in a time of
uncertainty as to Federal Government policy.

We cannot allow this uncertainty to be an excuse for our
inaction.

Much of what is being proposed in Washington echoes what
we have accomplished in Florida.

A firm commitment to reducing inflation through Govern-
ment action.

A renewed commitment to the free enterprise system.

A willingness to sacrifice for the Nation's defense-whether
against a foreign aggressor nation or a local hoodlum.

The compassion to assure that no truly needy Floridian is
denied the necessities of life.

With the leadership of House Speaker Ralph Haben, Senate
President W. D. Childers and Florida's outstanding Cabinet-
and the commitment of every Senator and Representative-our
efforts can help our state not just to respond to new develop-



ments-but to step forward assuredly to meet the challenges
we have set ourselves.

April 7, 1981











Transportation
One challenge that will most surely test our resolve as
leaders is that of providing adequate transportation to all the
people of Florida.
We are in a time of sharply rising energy costs, and ex-
plosive commercial and population growth. At the same time,
many of our most important highways lie incomplete or un-
started, while those in service are beaten into disrepair. Public
transit that so many Floridians depend on is suffering cut-
backs.
Transportation is vital to our state's health, yet the debate
over what to do about it is just opening.
We must remember one thing in the give and take of the
Legislative process: The solutions to our transportation dilem-
mas are flexible, the problem is not.
Today we are still awaiting construction of the Port Ever-
glades Expressway.
Broward County desperately needs this major artery-but
it represents only 4.2 of the 310 miles of our interstate system
that lie unfinished.
A bridge on State Road 767 over Jug Creek in Lee County
will be replaced at a cost of $1 million.
But it is only one of 1500 bridges in our State that require
immediate attention.
Jackson County currently requires nearly $3.5 million to
repair segments of the County's rural roads. But these are
just a few of the 3300 miles of State roads urgently requiring
repair.
The Dale Mabry Highway is one of Hillsborough County's
major North-South roads. It desperately needs additional lanes
to relieve congestion at its Southern end-but this represents
only 31/ of more than 2600 miles of road that just cannot
handle the level of traffic they now carry.
Ellyson Field in Escambia County is approaching the stage
where it can become an industrial park. The project will re-
quire substantial development and improvement of its road
network to attract industries-but this represents only $1.4
million of the $42 million in similar requests across the State.
In Dade County transit fares have risen 50% in only four
months, and even so, the system will have to be cut by one-
third.
This is only 1 of our State's 24 transit systems. Systems that
serve many of our working people, our elderly, our tourists,
and many others-but are on very shaky ground.
We cannot ignore this catalogue of dire need. Of all the
options before us, the least acceptable is to do nothing. We
have advanced comprehensive proposals to remedy the situa-
tion.

These proposals are based on four principles:

"*An adequate and reliable source of revenue must be pro-
vided to our transportation system. That requires an additional
$300 million per year in State funds for interstate completion,
State maintenance projects and local transportation needs.

"*Transportation should be financed by those who use the
system--those who use it the most should pay the most.



"*All who use our roads and highways-including our tourists
and inter-state commercial vehicles-should contribute.



7



"*The burden on the Florida motorist should be minimized.
In 1982 our program would cost the typical motorist driving
12,000 miles a year an additional $10-$15.
We cannot delay-our citizens require action.
If we fail, our efforts to meet the challenges of economic
opportunity will be severely hampered.

Economic Development
From a burgeoning work-force and the need for consistent,
long-term vitality, we face a challenge to widen our State's
economic base and expand jobs and business opportunities.
The economic state of our State is very good.
Since I spoke with you last year, in the manufacturing sector
alone we have brought in 62 new businesses and $1 billion in
new investment, and created almost 20,000 manufacturing jobs.
Total employment this January was 189,300 jobs higher than
only a year ago.
Tourism expenditures last year grew by 7% to over $17
billion, due largely to a 40% increase in the number of foreign
tourists. International trade grew by $4 billion in 1980 alone.
Fueled by this economic boom, Florida State revenues have
grown by over $540 million.
This growth enables us to continue those programs of proven
efficiency and effectiveness, and make an additional investment
of over a billion dollars in education, programs for the elderly,
and law enforcement.
We have done well. We must now work to do better.
We must double the Department of Commerce's ability to
attract tourism and business to our State, through the pur-
suit of target industries, and the highly successful program
of advertising.
We must expand our commitment to vocational education
and specific industry manpower training.
One of our greatest opportunities is in high technology in-
dustry-an industry seeking the natural qualities Florida pos-
sesses, and the institutions we can create.
We must provide continuing education for the engineers,
scientists and managers we seek to attract.
We must also initiate an educational outreach network for
Florida industry as we have done so successfully through the
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences for Florida agri-
culture.
Strong communities are an essential element of a strong
economy. Two of the first accomplishments of 1980 were the
creation of the Florida Housing Finance Agency and the pro-
vision of incentives for community revitalization.
These initiatives deserve our continued support.

Environment

From growth and urbanization, we face a challenge to the
preservation of our scenic beauty, our natural resources, and
our traditional way of life.

Our environment epitomizes what people are seeking. We
must ensure that it remains that way.



In recent years, we have been highly successful in meeting
the demands of growth, while ensuring that economic growth



April 7, 1981



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



and environmental integrity serve as partners in promoting
the quality of life.
No State in the past decade has been more creative and
more committed in protecting its land, water and air than has
Florida.
Challenges remain before us, however.
In the months ahead, we must act to ensure that Florida's
future remains as promising as Florida's present.
We must adequately fund the environmental agencies charged
with administering those programs already enacted such as last
year's controls on hazardous waste.
This year's major new challenge is the protection of the
soil that cradles and purifies our water.
To meet this challenge, we must enact the most natural and
the most cost-effective method of preserving our water supply:
The purchase of wetland, floodplains, and water recharge areas.
Additional development, which necessitates added water pro-
tection, will bear the slight costs of instituting this program.
It will ensure that the rivers of Florida continue to run, and
continue to run pure.

Human Development
From the demands we set upon ourselves as a vibrant and
compassionate society, we face a challenge not just to solve
current problems, but to shape an even brighter future.
The key to meeting this challenge can be found in the most
valuable resource any State can have: Its people.
Florida's future is to be found at its best, not in our natural
resources, economic prowess, or government programs-but in
its future leaders, workers, and citizens. We must take special
care to nurture our greatest hope for Florida's future-our
young people.
The signs are that we're doing well.
As a statement of our commitment to the future, and as a
standard by which to judge our progress, Florida has set a
goal of reaching the top quartile in the nation by 1985, in
both student performance and resources committed to educa-
tion.
We will do even more to improve the education that prepares
young Floridians for the future. We will raise the level of
State per-pupil expenditures, and further increase our salary
support for teachers and professors.
We will continue to reduce the pupil-teacher ratio in kinder-
garten-through-third grade programs.
We must broaden the opportunities available to young minds
through improved high school literacy programs. And we must
work to strengthen our entire system of higher education, in-
cluding the vital community college link between secondary
schools and the upper university divisions.



While we will continue to require the highest standards in
nursing home care, we must further the significant strides we
have made in bringing community care to the elderly.
In this coming year alone, we will provide community-based
service for 26,000 senior Floridians to ensure that those who
deserve and hold a special place in our hearts, are not denied
a place in our midst.

Law Enforcement
The central and foremost duty of Government is the pro-
tection of its citizens, the preservation of order, the mainte-
nance of justice. This is now our greatest challenge.
We will never turn Florida over to the mobsters, drug smug-
glers, and thugs who would destroy the great state we have
worked hard to build.
We will fight back with every resource at our disposal.
We will battle this enemy on every front.
And we will win.
Florida has faced crime waves before-and has faced them
down. We are in a time of great challenge.
Stability in our communities requires balance in our law
enforcement.
If the most fundamental deterrence to criminal acts is to be
effective, the potential criminal must realize that he will be
detected, arrested, swiftly prosecuted, and punished.
It is also fundamental that every citizen shall be accorded
equal rights under the law. A system of justice which knows
no race or color-creed or social position-is essential to the
citizens respect and obedience of the law.
We must address all areas of our Justice system with equal
concern. We must move forward at all levels-Federal, State
and Local.
We must also remember one thing: The people of Florida can-
not accept "business as usual". We cannot tolerate approaches
that delay solution of our problems.
The need for action is urgent.

The seriousness of our problem compells answers. We must
be prepared to answer now.

The broad range of problems we must confront-and the
urgency of confronting them-can be illustrated by the case
of one man-Thomas Otis Knight, who now sits on death row
at Florida State Prison.

In 1960, Thomas Knight was caught stealing U.S. Treasury
checks, and later, a bicycle. He was nine years old.

In October, 1964, Knight was arrested once more for shop-
lifting. Just two months later, he was caught breaking and
entering. He was given 5 years probation.



Fundamental to this future progress is an enhanced state On June 15, 1974, Thomas Knight was arrested for Grand
commitment to education. Larceny. He was released pending trial.



In our public schools, we recommend that state support be
increased from the current 65% to 70% in 1982. This will bring
us closer to equal educational opportunity and relieve property
taxpayers of a $120 million burden.
But we must also help those who shaped our past, and those
who need us now.



Thirty-two days later, July 17, 1974, Knight kidnapped and
murdered Sydney and Lillian Gans of Miami.

Two months later, Knight escaped from a local jail with 10
other prisoners. For the next 31/2 months he roamed the South-
east. He has been indicted in Georgia for an armed robbery and
murder during that period.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



He was finally recaptured on New Year's Eve 1974, tried, and
on April 21, 1975, sentenced to death. While on death row, on
October 12, 1980 he stabbed and killed Richard Burke, a correc-
tions officer on duty.
The State Supreme Court unanimously upheld his death sen-
tence. The Clemency Board reviewed the case and I signed
his death warrant.
But his case is now under a federal stay of execution,
awaiting further hearings in Court. It has been 2,456 days
since the first murders.

The case of Thomas Knight points to much of what we
must remedy.
Juveniles who are a threat to the community cannot be
detained for the protection of both themselves and law abiding
citizens.
Some dangerous accused criminals need not even escape like
Knight. Under our Constitution, we must often release accused
offenders-no matter how dangerous-if they can establish
only that they will appear for trial.
One of the chief means for proving this has been by point-
ing proudly to one's attendance record at previous dangerous
felony trials.
It is a mockery of justice that such individuals of proven
danger can be released to commit further, more serious of-
fenses.
Local jails are inadequate to contain the growing and in-
creasingly dangerous criminal population.
Staffing is insufficient to provide needed security and safety
for the Corrections Officers.
Meanwhile, endless delays in the Federal Judicial process
make a final rendering of justice almost impossible.
This provides just a sampling of our challenges. One thing
is clear: We must address these challenges in every aspect
of our Justice System, at every level of Government.
And we must do so now.
At the Federal level, we must tackle big-time crime-mob-
sters and drug traffickers-we must speed the determination
of justice in the courts, and we must develop and stand by
Immigration laws that keep the criminal element out.
The Federal Government must increase funding and staffing
to combat lawlessness in Florida-particularly the drug trade.
Despite a Federal hiring freeze and cut-backs, we cannot
allow the Federal Government to cut into areas in which
Florida is already underserviced.
The most effective place to turn off the drug trade is at its
source. The Federal Government must reinstitute its herbicide
spraying program and commence cooperative drug eradication
in countries like Colombia and Jamaica.
Drug trafficking affects the entire nation. It is time for the
nation to help Florida fight at the nation's front-line.
Moreover, we will push for revision of Federal law, to allow
evidence of drug shipments discovered by the military to be
shared with Florida Law Enforcement Officials.

In capital cases appeals drag on for years. And the enforce-



ment of laws and sanctions becomes a mockery. We have advo-
cated reforms in the Federal Judicial process to encourage the
timely consideration of capital cases. The Federal District



Courts in our State are beginning to constructively address
this issue.
The Congress and the President must act to finally resolve
these serious roadblocks to justice.
The need for swift and sure punishment is central to our
dispensation of justice in all cases.

Federal Immigration Policy
It is also time for the Federal Government to take responsi-
bility for its immigration decisions.
Our State has long benefitted from the many people who
have come, as refugees from their native lands, seeking a
better life.
This past year, however, known criminals from other coun-
tries were let into Florida. These criminals are a blot on the
honor of the thousands who have come here and made Florida
greater. They are a danger to all who have chosen lawfully
to live here. Florida cannot become the refuse heap for either
a foreign government or half-finished federal policies.
There is no better place for showing we mean business, than
our own naval base at Guantanamo. Castro must take back
those who belong behind his jail's doors, even if we must
push them through our base's gates.
Like many challenges we face in Florida-such as provid-
ing for our State's transportation needs-there are no easy
national solutions to the disposition of the criminal refugee.
Action begins by recognizing that toleration of the status quo
is the least acceptable option.
The troubles with the Federal Government's handling of
Caribbean refugees are so diverse and so continual that they
could almost be called a comedy of errors-if their results
weren't so calamitous.
I wish to commend Florida Senator Lawton Chiles for the
leadership which he is now exhibiting in the United States
Congress to provide the effective immigration law which this
country has so long needed.
I am asking Speaker Haben and President Childers to select
a delegation to travel with me to Washington, to personally
ensure that the Federal Government recognizes its responsi-
bility to act on this issue.
As leaders in State Government, we have a special responsi-
bility to ensure that our State provides adequate protection
under the law.
In areas of enforcement, we must step up efforts to unsaddle
the "cocaine cowboys" and rein in the drug trade in our State.

We have already recognized the need for effective action.
In 1979, under the leadership of Ralph Haben, Florida passed
strong drug trafficking legislation that has earned praise and
served as a national model.

We will further our fight against dangerous and illegal drugs
by increasing narcotics law enforcement assistance to state
and local agencies.

We must commit an additional $3 million to combat organized
crime.

We must enact legislation to set aside civil forfeitures under



the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act, for
increased assistance to local law enforcement.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



This will ensure that ill-gotten gains pay for the costly local
assistance in putting a stop to them.
In areas of adjudication we must not forget, in the press of
the Criminal Justice System, those who often need us most:
the victim and the witness.
We must statutorily recognize the Statewide Victim-Witness
Coordinating Office, to promote a more sensitive treatment of
victims and witnesses.
The vast majority of those incarcerated in our State's prisons
eventually return to our State's communities.
To enhance the likelihood of law-abiding behavior upon
release, we must concentrate future state prison construction
in those areas from which most inmates come.
This will help maintain family relationships during imprison-
ment until release.
We must also expand the prison industry program to increase
the Department of Corrections' self sufficiency, provide job
skills for inmates, and create an income source to reimburse
victims.
But we must guarantee that no convicted criminal ever is
turned back into the street because we didn't have a jail cell
to put him in. Our proposed budget meets this need by expand-
ing our prison capacity by 1768 beds.
Many critical elements of our law enforcement program we
can implement immediately. We must therefore enact them
immediately. The people of Florida do not deserve another
moment's delay.
I have consulted with Speaker Haben, President Childers,
and Chief Justice Sundberg and we have all agreed that we
must take these actions together-right now.

Immediate Law Enforcement Actions
I am directing that recruitment begin immediately for 150
additional Highway Patrolmen, including a new Strike Force to
answer crime emergencies throughout the State.
These men and women will be on the streets as soon as
possible after July 1.
I am directing that recruitment begin immediately for 441
additional staff for State Attorneys and 141 for Public Defend-
ers to ease the overflowing case loads in our adjudicatory
structures.
We will begin filling these positions now, so that our Court
System starts working the way we need it to, on the very
first day possible.
I am requesting that the Legislature enact by May 1 authori-
zation for 27 new Judges.
I am directing the Judicial Nominating Commission to move
forward as soon as you have acted because we need these
Judges on our benches immediately.
I am directing that recruitment begin immediately for 74
additional corrections officers to maintain security and safety
at our prisons, so that we have the new personnel on line by
July 1.
We must act immediately to require a defendant's danger to
the community to be considered in setting bail in violent crime
and narcotics cases.



I call upon you to enact by May 1 firm but fair guidelines
for the detention of juvenile offenders.



April 7, 1981



The detention criteria must ensure the State's ability to
hold an alleged juvenile offender in a secure facility when it
is determined that the juvenile represents a serious threat to
the community.

Local Law Enforcement Assistance
While meeting the State's responsibility to protect our citi-
zens, we must also assist local officials to discharge that
same duty.
Much of the responsibility for enforcing the laws rests at
the local level. In a democracy, law enforcement authority
should be decentralized-our police should be responsive to
the people they serve. There are many ways in which the
State can assist local officials in carrying out their duties,
however.
We must provide additional revenue to cities and counties
to reduce their reliance on property taxes, and increase their
ability to fight crime.
Our proposed budget provides additional State revenue shar-
ing to local governments by indexing the total distribution to
the growth in state general revenue.
Over the next five years this will increase local government
revenue by $195 million.
Through our actions in the last two years, Florida has moved
substantially toward a more equitable and uniform property
tax base to support local government. I urge you to adopt the
further refinements proposed by the finance and tax commit-
tees in each chamber.
State government must develop a permanent financial part-
nership with local law enforcement.

In 1947 the State acted to provide equal access to education
opportunities for all Florida children.

A third of a century later we have an equally compelling
responsibility to assure equal access to safe communities for
all the people of Florida.

This partnership should be high on our agenda for the
1982 Legislative Session.

We must begin, however, to take many actions now. Partic-
ularly in assisting local law enforcement agencies in the re-
cruitment and training of personnel.

The six largest law enforcement agencies in Florida protect
53 percent of our people and combat 60 percent of crime. But
they have over 360 vacancies. We must act to assist in the
filling of those positions.

We must also assume a greater share of the cost of law
enforcement training.

We must relieve local law enforcement officials of the bur-
dens of highway patrol and accident investigation by increasing
the Florida Highway Patrol by one-third.

And we must initiate an innovative partnership for the en-
largement, renovation and new construction of local jails.

Local Corrections Facilities Bond Issue

We are today facing a crisis in our correctional and deten-
tion facilities almost without precedent. Most local jails were



constructed twenty-thirty-forty years ago, to hold the occa-
sional trouble-maker and the Saturday night drunk.










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Today they are called upon to house a growing and in-
creasingly violent population. Local facilities are not large
enough and not secure enough to meet the demands placed
upon them.
Several counties are currently under court order or court
threat to drastically reduce their prison populations. Local taxes
are strained beyond their capability to finance the construction
or rehabilitation of local correctional facilities.
If we stand still, our problem can only grow worse: Today,
there are 12,314 prisoners in county jails. By the year 2000
we will need to house over 17,000 county prisoners.
This crisis implores us to respond. I am today asking you
to place before the voters this November a constitutional amend-
ment which will authorize a state full faith and credit bond
issue for local jails. In anticipation of a favorable vote by
the people, I ask you to implement this program by statute
with a $390 million bond issue.
Through this aid to local law enforcement, the State will
meet 80% of the costs of needed facilities until the year 2000.
In recognition of past efforts, the State will reimburse 80%
of the costs for local jails constructed or renovated since 1975.
Your action will send a strong message to the potential law
breakers that Florida means business.
Through their vote on this amendment in November the
people of Florida will be able to join us in the battle against
crime.
These measures require of us both immediate action, and
continuing attention. Without a safe and secure community
in which to live, the hopes and efforts of our people for a
more beautiful and bountiful State are in vain. Domestic tran-
quility, peace and justice under law-these are the foundation
of our charge as public servants.
Let us move forward now to meet the test of a just and
safe society.
The test of a people's courage comes in their willingness to
face the present, the test of their wisdom comes in their willing-
ness to face the future.
Floridians have the courage and the wisdom to seize this
moment. But we must do so together. We are a State of ten
million people-ten million carpenters, housewives, technicians
and truckers, students, and government officials-who must
work together to solve our current problems and plan for an
even brighter future.
We must ensure that the work we do in the coming months,
and the policies we enact, rise above narrow parochialism and
short-sighted self-interest. Pressing problems will not excuse
indecision; the demands of the long-run public interest will not
forgive selfish quick-fixes.
When we shoulder it together, the burden is small for the
benefits we will reap; a safer, more convenient transportation
network; a quality education system; a strong economic base;
a clean and viable environment; and a state that will not
surrender one sidewalk or one citizen to violence and lawless-
ness.
When it is more comfortable to consider only our own well-
being, we must have the courage to consider others. When it is
more indulgent to bemoan our own small sacrifice, we must be
wise enough to recognize our great common benefit, and when



it is easier to think of what we would like to do, we must
have the strength to think and to act on that which we must do.

Remarks by Speaker Haben

Ladies and gentlemen of the House, you have heard the ad-
dress by the Governor this morning and I do not want to keep
you longer, but there are a few things that I would like to
cover with you that I think are important at this time.

They said it could not be done, and I want to express to you
my sincere appreciation. We have word from the Office of the
Clerk that it appears that we are going to be very close to
fifty percent off the pace in the number of bills filed in this
session. (applause) Last year at this time we had 1500 bills
filed by Members. This year we will have probably between
750 and 800, and I think that is going to mean some good
things for us, and let me tell you specifically what I mean.
I am not suggesting to you that we're going home early. I
am not suggesting to you that some major issues will not be
debated near the end of the session. I am not suggesting to
you that we will not have a crunch at the end of the session.
What I am telling you is, through your restraint you have
given yourselves available time that this House has never
before had to consider the major items that the governor has
mentioned and some other items that certainly are in those
800 bills as filed by the members of this House and the Senate.
So what we have, probably for the first time in over a decade,
is time to become a truly deliberative body, which in my judg-
ment we ought to become. I think that is important and ob-
viously we could not have done it without your cooperation. I
think that ultimately this legislature will be viewed well be-
cause we now have the time to do some things that we've never
done before.

We are in the process, and very shortly will have developed,
an oversight program, which I believe to be an important and
legitimate function of this House. So you will have plenty
to do, but the biggest thing is, you will have time to spend
on the major issues.

Let me point out one more thing that I'm sure the House is
aware of. I have met, hopefully, with every delegation, and let
me publicly say that we have a delegation council. Barry Kutun
will act as liaison between the Speaker's Office and that council.
As you all know, that is for the express purpose of determining
exactly what this body wants to do. It will help me in negotia-
tions with the chief executive of Florida and also with the
Florida Senate, because I think for the first time I can know
very quickly precisely what this House wants to do and I



perceive my role as being here to do that which the majority
of this body wishes to do.
