burg Times award, a program that originated in 1947 as a salute to
a group who have exhibited special qualities of vision and leader-
ship, and who have won recognition from journalists covering legis-
lative proceedings. In part, he said, "We pay special tribute to
Ralph Haben of Manatee County for his achievements as Speaker
of the 1982 Florida House of Representatives, and for a distin-
guished ten-year legislative career. During the often vexing days of
the 1982 Session when the House grappled with problems of reap-
portionment, insurance, budget, and criminal justice, the Speaker
got the most from his team, with a blend of good humor and sound
judgment in administering parliamentary procedure." He presented a
plaque to Mr. Haben symbolizing his selection as the "Most Valu-
able Member" of the 1982 House.
Mr. Haben, in accepting the award, praised the 1982 House as "a
group of people who came together and did some good and positive
things."
The Speaker complimented the Florida Press Corps for its selec-
tion of Mr. Haben. He then introduced Mr. Haben's wife, Debbie.

Every odd-numbered year since 1885, the Florida Legislature has
assembled on this Tuesday in April. All legislatures make some
mark on Florida's history. But a few legislatures have the chance to
achieve greatness by marking Florida's future.
Yours is such a Legislature.
The ingredients for greatness begin with you. We bring together
today the right people, and the right agenda.
Your membership includes veteran legislators like Senate Presi-
dent Curtis Peterson and House Speaker Lee Moffitt, whose leader-
ship and commitment to the institution of the Florida Legislature
are major assets of the State of Florida.
More than 50 of you are first-term Representatives or Senators.
You bring a freshness of personality, an independence of mind, and
an enthusiasm that have characterized the great legislatures of the
past.
All of you come from single-member districts, for the first time in
Florida's history. You are the Legislature that best represents the
diversity of our state. You have forged a special bond with the
people who placed their trust in you.

April 5, 1983









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



You were elected by them because they had faith in your judg-
ment. Because they shared your vision. Because they shared your
belief that the art of government is an honorable profession, and
one of the greatest forms of human service.
You in the class of 1983 are a distinguished group. You include
among your number a woman who has been a middle school math-
ematics teacher, a devoted mother, and mayor of her community-
Senator Karen Thurman.
You include a real estate executive who has earned a graduate
degree in business, who has served on the Florida Housing Finance
Agency, and the Downtown Development Authority in Tampa-
Representative Jim Hargrett.
All of you first-time legislators are members of a distinguished
group.
You are here on temporary duty in Tallahassee at a time of
high-velocity change.
Florida once was a peripheral state, but it is becoming a megastate.
Florida once had a narrow-bound economy; today we share in the
global economy.
Once we were a poor state; today, we are a state with a great
potential for widely distributed prosperity. Once we were a state
where opportunity was tightly rationed; we are becoming a state
where opportunity and justice are widely shared.
Florida once was a small state. Today, we are the fastest growing
urban state in America.
Once our destiny was out of our control. Today, you and I and all
Floridians can choose the future we desire.
I am here today to report to you that the state of our state is good
and getting better.
Only last week we received the good news that we are on the
leading edge of economic recovery. Once Florida was the last to
enter a recession and the last to exit.
Today, we are last in and first out.
We stand almost a point and a half below the national average in
unemployment-that's 70,000 people. There are enough people in
Florida today who have jobs because we're better off than the
nation as a whole to make up the populations of Fort Walton Beach,
Winter Park and Key West-combined.



And I wish each of you could have been with Chuck Nergard and
me in Martin County, where we dedicated one of the first of our
new public beaches under the Save Our Coasts program.
Just as I look forward to sharing that same sense of excitement
and accomplishment with Senator Jim Scott, and Representative
Tom Gustafson, and Ken Jenne, and Fred Lippman, when we dedi-
cate North Beach in Broward County.
And you and I know there will be no retreat on preserving our
environment, because you and I do not intend to retreat.
And the good news is in about our roads and bridges. Florida has
chosen a future with better highways, safer bridges and better
public transportation.
Because of what you have done already this year, we're four-
laning 13.8 miles of State Road 80 in Palm Beach County.
We're six-laning Biscayne Boulevard in Dade County, and we're
widening U.S. 1 in the Florida Keys.
We're four-laning U.S. 98 in Okaloosa and Walton Counties, and
widening Dale-Mabry Expressway in Hillsborough County.
And we're realigning U.S. 301 in Manatee County for three and a
half miles.
All over Florida today, our transportation dollars are at work.
And there is good news in education, we have a long way to go
until every student in Florida is challenged to the limits of his or
her ability, but look at the successes we have to build on.
In Jacksonville, the Raines High School is an example of how a
combination of community interest and adequate resources can
turn a school around.
A gentleman who serves on the academic boosters there told me
that once there were only about 150 students on the honor roll. Now
there are 300.
In Monroe County, Plantation Key Elementary School has an
outstanding program in computers. And it is part of the county-
wide program of teaching Spanish in every elementary school.
In Sarasota, Riverview High School operates the nation's only
radiation science program. And Sarasota High School operates a
floating classroom in marine science, and monitors Sarasota Bay
marine life.



Florida has been designated the state with the best business Manatee Community College brings the classroom to the workplace
climate in America-not once, but twice in the past two years. at American Beryllium Company, teaching precision machining
techniques to students in a real-life environment.



I say there will be no retreat on improving our economy, because
you and I do not intend to retreat.
The state of our economy is strong and getting stronger. And so is
the state of our criminal justice system.
And the good news is that crime is down in Florida today by
almost 5 percent. That's twice as big a drop as 1981, when Florida's
decline in crime was twice as fast as the nation's.
I say there will be no retreat on fighting crime in Florida, be-
cause you and I do not intend to retreat.
And there is good news on our environment.
I wish I could share with you the excitement I felt a week ago last
Sunday in Destin.
Representatives Jim Ward and Bo Johnson and I stood on Hen-
derson Beach State Recreation Area-the first property acquired
under the Save Our Coasts program. We were swept up in the
enthusiasm of the people. Their dream had become their beach.



At the Washington-Holmes Area Vocational-Technical Center, a
food-service training center helps make our young people ready for
jobs that are waiting for them.
And at the University of Florida, programs in robotics, and in
biomedical engineering, are national pacesetters.
Today in Florida, 1.27 percent of our high school juniors receive
commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Program. The
honor they bring to Florida can become the standard of excellence
every student seeks, and which more of them attain.
I say there will be no retreat on our commitment to educational
excellence, because you and I do not intend to retreat.
And it is in education that you and I will face our greatest
opportunity. This is the agenda and you are the people that to-
gether can result in historic achievement.
By improving our public schools, community colleges and state
universities, you can help Florida attract the new high-technology

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



businesses that will dominate the economy of the United States It is time to end an era of remedial education and begin a period
into the 21st century. of quality education for all.



By improving our schools, you can capitalize on Florida's geo-
graphical and linguistic advantages in international commerce-as
Florida becomes the bridge among the continents of Europe, Asia,
North America and South America.
And by improving our system of education, you can raise our
standard of living, provide well-paid, future-oriented jobs for our
citizens, and improve our quality of life.
By combining our brainpower, our natural environment for agri-
culture and our position as the world's number one tourist destina-
tion, we can and will strengthen our economy and continue to
create new jobs in Florida.
I am pleased that an old friend and a veteran of this legislative
process is responsible for accelerating that momentum. Wayne Mixson,
our Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of Commerce, will direct
that growth and move Florida into the future.
Wayne Mixson knows, and the business people he talks to know,
that there is no greater investment you and I can make than the
investment in people that education represents.
The values of education are the traditional values of America.
Education is the traditional road to personal and economic self-
improvement, and to extending the benefits of democracy to all
citizens.
Education, in general, and public schools, in particular, set a tone
in a community and a state. What a community does about its
schools is an index of how that community feels about itself. How it
regards its children. And how it sees its future.
The statement we make about ourselves through education is
heard clearly by those who decide where new high-technology in-
dustry will locate.
These decision makers are well educated.
They want good schools for their own children. And they know
they can't recruit the scientific, technical and management person-
nel they need-without good schools for their children.
This is a year to reinforce Florida's fundamental policy on education.
Our policy, as expressed in our Constitution, is to provide for a
uniform system of free public schools; to provide community col-
leges and state universities accessible to our citizens geographi-
cally and financially; to provide resources needed to achieve excel-
lence; and to demand accountability from our students, our teachers
and our managers at every level of education.
Our policy is to reach the upper quartile in the nation, to be
among the top 12 states in America, by the 1985-86 school year; to
reach the top 12 states as measured not only by the resources we
provide, but by the quality we achieve; our policy is to demand the
best-for our society is served not only by those who achieve excel-
lence, but also by those who aspire to excellence.
Every one of us knows today that, despite our successes, Florida
has not yet achieved excellence in education. We know it as Sena-
tors and Representatives, we know it as parents, and-most important-
we know it as citizens.
Our shortfalls stem from a common source:

Our schools lack rigorous standards.
Students and faculty both respond to our expectations. And our
expectations must be raised to a level that will extend every stu-
dent to reach his or her potential.



It is time to demand that each element of our system of education
handle its own problems.
It is time to stop the cycle of social promotion that forces our
community colleges to teach high school graduates how to read.
To continue to certify their failures as success is to send them a
message of dishonesty.
To give an illiterate student passing grades is to tell that student
that reading doesn't matter.
That is a lie!
Lies like that will accumulate in the life of a student, until one
day the small increments of falsehood will create a lifestyle of
ignorance, of failure and, potentially, of crime.
Let me share with you a couple of personal experiences that I
have had recently. Two weeks ago yesterday, I visited Indian River
Correctional Institution near Vero Beach. That is an institution for
youthful offenders. Most of the men in that institution are late
teenagers or in their early twenties. I went into a classroom where
a young man, who told me that he was nineteen years of age and
had dropped out after the eleventh grade, was studying reading.
His teacher told me that when he started the study of reading
ninety days earlier, he could not read the first page of the first book
of the first-grade reading primer-a person who dropped out of the
eleventh grade.
Let me share with you a second personal story. A week ago
Saturday, I was visiting Apalachee Correctional Institution, an-
other youthful offender institution in Jackson County. I was sitting
in the library with four young offenders. One of them showed me a
paper that he had just received the previous day from his teacher.
The paper had a grade of 56 on it. It was marked "F." He said, "I
passed through seven grades of school. I dropped out after the
seventh grade. I never got an 'F.' I was passed from the first grade
to the second, the third to the fourth, and finally the sixth to the
seventh, and then out of the system, never receiving an 'F'." He
said, "I did the same quality of work in school that I'm doing here
in prison. I like the fact that the prison is honest with me. When I
fail, they tell me that I have failed."
What did we teach those two young men? We certainly didn't
teach them how to read. We certainly didn't give them any skills
that were necessary to cope in a highly complex society. What we
did tell them was that hard work and performance derived from
that hard work is not important in our society. What we did tell
them is that society is prepared to accept failure and mark it as
success. What we did tell those two young men is that a life built
upon deceit and deception is acceptable. Now let me tell you the
rewards that we are about to get on that investment.
The Department of Corrections spent more building the cages
that hold those two inmates than we spent failing to teach them
how to read. This is the kind of human tragedy-and waste of
taxpayers' dollars-that I want to stop.
We will not continue to permit our schools to promote students
who are failing, and to graduate students who can't read.
We must reverse our past neglect of the physical sciences, of
mathematics and of language study.
For just as arithmetic is a survival skill for an individual, calcu-
lus and physics are survival skills for a nation in a nuclear age.
They are standards of academic rigor that we in Florida must
demand.

April 5, 1983










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



And we must demand better and broader teaching of foreign
languages. Florida today is the crossroads of international com-
merce. We are the marketplace where Japan sells to Latin Ameri-
ca. Where the Caribbean buys from Europe. Language skills are
vital tools of this new international commerce, and essential job
skills for late 1980s.
Florida has a role as a state government to see that these rigor-
ous standards are met.

The State Board of Education has set the measure by which our
progress will be judged. Upon the recommendation of Commissioner
Ralph Turlington, the board has established signposts on the road
to national leadership.
Let every school board, community college and university admin-
istration take note:
I will propose on Wednesday-at tomorrow's Cabinet meeting-
that the State Board of Education demand a new dimension of
accountability.
I want a written report to Commissioner Turlington from every
school district, every community college, and every university show-
ing our progress toward our upper quartile goal. We must demon-
strate that progress semester by semester and year by year in order
to show the public that OUR PROMISE HAS BEEN KEPT.
Our public schools, community colleges and state universities
must improve the performance of their students, as measured by
nationally accepted standards.
For example:
Our public schools must increase the number of students honored
in the National Merit Scholarship Program. They must raise the
scores of Florida students on the scholastic aptitude test.
Our vocational schools must provide training that leads to a job
today and a future tomorrow. Vocational education must retool for
the age of high-technology and international commerce.
In our community colleges, we demand an increase in the num-
ber of academic scholarships and fellowships awarded to graduates.
And we insist on raising the percentage of degree-seeking students
who actually earn degrees.
We expect our universities to test incoming freshmen and to test
them again as sophomores, to find out how they perform. And we
expect improvement in graduate record examination scores, and in
the scores on the professional licensing examinations our graduates
take.
Our policy is to raise the overall level of education in Florida.
Every student in every classroom in Florida will feel the lift that
rising expectations bring.
That policy will be advanced still further by committing our state
to become a world-class center of excellence in areas that are espe-
cially appropriate and important to Florida.
We will add to our overall momentum when we strive toward
international leadership in gerontology-the study of the aging
process.



To accompany these raised standards and new accountability,
our schools must have additional resources.
Three years ago you began to emphasize kindergarten through
third grade. Since then you have allocated 230 million dollars for
the primary education program.
In that time, average class sizes have dropped from 26 pupils per
class to 21 pupils per class. And in that time, performance on the
Third Grade Standard School Aptitude Test has risen. In 1978, 83
percent of our third graders passed that test. Last year, 92 percent
passed.
Our experience with the primary education program shows that
we can get results when we provide resources, set standards, and
demand accountability.
The Primary Education Program shows what we can do. What
we now must do is create the opportunities for learning that addi-
tional resources provide.
Engineering is the basic discipline of a high-technology age, and
we must increase the number of graduate engineering students in
Florida today. We have experienced a decade of decline. We must
initiate a decade of improvement.
Our schools, community colleges and universities require labora-
tories, libraries and computer terminals of a national standard.
Their needs for transporting students and operating the schools
must be met. And we must provide increased financial aid for those
who require it to complete their education.
As we did in prep for primary schools, we must do for freshman
and sophomore math and language classes in our colleges and
universities. We must pay what it costs to reduce the class sizes so
more learning can take place.
And we must prepare to train tomorrow's workforce for a new
world of skills and opportunities.
Most of all, we must begin to compete to attract the best minds
and keep them in the classroom.
We must begin a program of scholarships to attract mathematics
and science teachers, especially.

Now we ask our technically-minded college students to choose
between a job in private industry as an engineer-at 25,428 dollars
a year-or as a computer programmer-at 22,260 dollars a year-or
as a high school math teacher in Jefferson County-at 11,000 dol-
lars a year.

That's half the average pay offered to engineering and computer
students who will graduate this June.

In 54 of our 67 counties, the starting salary for a teacher with a
Bachelor's degree last September was 13,000 dollars a year or less.
In 10 of our counties, beginning teachers earned 12,000 dollars or
less.

Those who teach always make sacrifices. But this sacrifice is too
great.



We will become a world leader in unlocking the secrets of our When we offer half as much money as a computer programmer
oceans. can make, we are asking too much and paying too little.



We must understand Latin America better than any other state
and any other country.
And, as the state most identified with America's exploration of
space, we must become the intellectual leader of the world in mas-
tering the use of space for the betterment of all mankind.



Listen to Jamey Osborn. He's 22, a senior at Florida State major-
ing in mathematics education. He's serving a professional intern-
ship at East Bay High School in Hillsborough County.

Jamey says, "You don't get rich teaching, but it's a life rich in
satisfaction and personal rewards."

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Jamey says it doesn't bother him to start at 13,000 dollars a year.
But when he sees his classmates start at 25,000 dollars a year in
other technical areas, that does get to him.
"I'll never make that as a school teacher in Florida if I teach for
forty years. That's one thing I hope they solve," he told a member of
my staff yesterday.
At the same time, we have the opportunity to expand our pool of
qualified teachers by reaching out to those who are trained in
technical areas.



Those are words upon which you were elected. Your actions here
in the Legislature are what you go home with. Take back to your
constituents as evidence that you have lived up to your contract.
Meeting these goals will not be an easy task. But it is what our
future requires. Tomorrow's workforce for Florida is in our schools
today.
As we look around our state, we can see the demands tomorrow's

resources.



We have to talk sense to the people of Florida.
That is why I have proposed new taxes.
I don't take any more pleasure in this than you do. But the reality
is that we have endured a national recession. That reduced our
revenues by $400 million.
The new taxes I am requesting are required to keep us on sched-
ule in our five-year commitment to reach the top 12 states in per-
pupil expenditures.
As you decide what to do during the next 60 days, remember last
fall, when you and I went before the people of Florida seeking their
votes. We signed a contract with the people of Florida. You and I
campaigned on a platform of better schools.
Here is how ONE OF YOU expressed YOUR hopes for a better
Florida to the voters last November:
"I am a proponent of the Governor's and Commissioner of Educ-
tion's program to bring teacher salaries and pupil performance to
within the top one-fourth of the states over a five-year period .... No
other issue has a higher priority than improving Florida's school
system." And you were elected.
Another of you advertised that you "led the campaign to increase
teacher salaries and the QUALITY of education in Florida." And
you were elected.
Still another of you wrote me personally during the campaign
urging that our schools be spared the cutback all state agencies
were forced to make.
"I feel the State of Florida is committed to work to get to the
upper quartile nationally over the next few years," you wrote. And
you were elected.



By your vote, you must make that investment the same way you
made an investment last year to fight crime in Florida.
I know you are mindful of a misguided proposal to roll back taxes
in Florida, to undo what you have already accomplished. Today is
not the time, nor this the place, to begin the battle against that
ill-conceived scheme.
But today is the day to begin the fight against a ghost. That ghost
is the fear of political retribution that could paralyze our will
Ask yourselves-Suppose this issue had come up a year ago. Sup-
pose, out of fear of a ghost, the Legislature had failed to put more
police officers on the street and prosecutors in the courtroom. I can
assure you, crime would not be down today.
Would you like to go back to the people of Florida and say, we
turned our back on the problem because we were afraid to face it?
I don't want to have to go back and make that speech. Neither do
you.

I want to be able to tell the public that we can see our goal of
national excellence in education on the horizon.

That we can see the international commerce and the high-technology
jobs that mean a bright future to Florida.

This is the position of honesty, frankness, and plain common
sense that I want to take to the people of Florida.

For Florida has chosen a future of leadership, of hard work and
honesty.

For now is our time of excellence. Now is our moment of truth.



Thank you.

Governor Graham's Supplemental Message

HONORABLE MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATURE:
I have discussed the demanding needs of our public education sys-
tem and the dependence of economic prosperity on education in
my opening address. This supplemental message focuses on other
priorities before you: growth management, public safety and human
services.
These priorities for Florida are consistent with the 1983-85 biennial
budget I submitted to the Legislature on February 21, 1983.



I urge your attention to these issues. I pledge my best efforts and
cooperation toward their achievement.

Sincerely,
BOB GRAHAM
Governor



The challenges we face in providing a fine education for our young
people, a prosperous economy, public safety and human services are
a function of Florida's remarkable growth. During this legislative
session, I urge you to adopt certain measures to manage Florida's
growth and natural resources wisely, continuing the tradition of
the past decade.
Florida's explosive growth requires us to enact the best mecha-
nisms in the nation to manage that growth. We must continue to
seek a balance between the legitimate needs of development and
the demands for protecting the state's natural systems. An out-
standing growth management program provides such a balance.

Water Task Force
House Speaker Moffitt, with the able assistance of former State
Representative Bill Sadowski and the Water Task Force, has devel-
oped a package of proposed legislation that will go far toward
protecting our precious water resources. This legislation represents
a brave and farsighted approach to resolving some very sensitive
and difficult problems. I support this legislative package.
This legislation will significantly enhance the Department of
Environmental Regulation's (DER) role in monitoring and protect-
ing the quality of surface and groundwater. It provides for a much
needed constitutional amendment to enable the Northwest Florida
Water Management District (NWFWMD) to assess ad valorem taxes
in amounts comparable to the other four water management dis-
tricts. This legislation will also provide funds for hazardous waste
site cleanup and sewage treatment plant construction.
The legislative proposals on hazardous waste would provide funds
for the clean-up of existing, uncontrolled hazardous waste sites.
These funds would be matched by federal "Superfund" monies and
would provide incentives to local governments to identify and man-
age generators of small quantities of hazardous wastes.
The provisions in the proposed Florida Water Pollution Control
and Sewage Treatment Grant Act will enable local governments to
construct sewage treatment or disposal facilities or cost-effective
alternatives.
I urge approval of this important legislation as a means of pro-
tecting the quality and quantity of our water resources; water is
vital to continued economic and social prosperity and to the natural
systems and environment of Florida.



The cost estimates for the publicly owned sewerage needs for the year 1980 ad 2000
were taken from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Publication
43--82-009, entitled "1982 needs Survey". The need (M227 billion) for the 1980 Florida
population is presented in 1982 dollars as is the ned (5458 billion) for the 2000 popu-
lation. Population data was prepared by the United States Department of Commerce.
The EPA construction grants program cumulative funding data for years 1980(350 mil-
lion) are actual cumulative allotments received by Florida since 1979 The cumulative
grant funds for years 1984 (433 million) and 1985 ($516 million) include anticipated al-
lotments yet unappropriated by Congress. The construction grants program is autho-
rized only until 1985 under the Clean Water Act (CWA). Therefore, zero allotments are
projected beyond 1985 the EPA has ben operating under the assumption of zero fund-
ing after 1985 since enactment of the 1981 CWA Amendment which is the most recent
authorization for the program. Thus, the cumulative expected total for EPA funding
through year 2000 is $516 million. This total does not reflect Florida allotments since
the beginning of the program in 1957 through 1979, which, in sum, approximates $1.2
billion.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Hazardous Wastes
Over 90% of Florida's drinking water is derived from groundwater.
The major groundwater source for most of central and north Florida
is the Floridan Aquifer. Southeast Florida's primary source of fresh-
water is the Biscayne Aquifer, while the sand-and-gravel aquifer
supplies the western portion of the panhandle.
The protection of Florida's drinking water supplies from toxic
substances remains a high priority. The state's groundwater and
hazardous waste management activities must be strengthened to
assure an adequate, affordable and safe supply of water is available
to the people of Florida.
Our 1983-85 budget recommends enhancements of $9.5 million to
the state's groundwater and hazardous waste programs. I urge you
to enact this budget recommendation.

Simplified Land Acquisition Program
Having operated under expanded land acquisition laws since 1979,
the state has restored credibility in its land purchase program. This
program should be further improved through modifications to the
existing law to enable the program to function more effectively
while maintaining safeguards against misuse. State land acquisi-
tion agents, representing the public, need to be able to negotiate
acquisitions on a basis similar to the private parties from whom
property is being acquired. The property selection, appraisal and
negotiation procedures should be improved.
The purchase of environmental land continues to be a major
priority in 1983-85. This biennial budget recognizes the critical
need for public ownership of additional river floodplains and wet-
lands, beachfront property, outdoor recreational areas and envi-
ronmentally endangered lands.
A total of $170 million is recommended for continued purchase of
lands under the Save Our Rivers, Save Our Coasts and Conserva-
tion & Recreation Lands (CARL) programs in 1983-85.
The Save Our Rivers program was initiated in 1981 to acquire
more than $300 million of land for water management, water sup-
ply and the conservation and protection of water resources. Funds
for the program are derived from the documentary stamp tax and
disbursed from the Water Management Lands Trust Fund to the
five water management districts. Recent acquisitions under the
Save Our Rivers program include lands in St. Johns River and
Anclote River Basins and in Green Swamp.
The Save Our Coasts program represents an effort to acquire
$200 million worth of Florida's rapidly diminishing undeveloped
beachfront property for public recreational enjoyment and benefit.
The program is funded through the sale of revenue bonds in $25
million increments. The bond indebtedness is funded by documen-
tary stamp tax revenues deposited in the Land Acquisition Trust
Fund. Recent acquisitions in Okaloosa, Martin and Broward coun-
ties were accomplished with Save Our Coasts funds.
The CARL program provides the means to acquire lands for a
variety of purposes such as environmentally endangered lands,
archaeological and historical sites, parks, forests, wilderness areas,
wildlife management areas and other lands. The program receives
up to $20 million a year from mineral severance tax revenues that
are deposited in the CARL Trust Fund. Previous acquisitions under
the program include Little Gator Creek (Pasco County); the ITT
Snapper Creek property (Dade County); and portions of the Apa-
lachicola River Basin, Rookery Bay, St. George Island and Fakahatchee
Strand.



Planning for Growth
Balancing Florida's natural beauty with its population growth re-
quires careful planning and foresight. Without this planning, it
will be impossible to meet the inevitable demands for housing,
infrastructure and other growth support systems in accordance with
Florida's growth management policies.
To provide this planning and foresight, I urge you to support the
recommendations of the ELMS II Committee by providing $249,000
in 1983-84 and $126,000 in 1984-85 to increase monitoring and
enforcement efforts for Areas of Critical State Concern and $32,000
each year of the biennium to provide adequate funds for Resource
Planning and Management Committees in Areas of Critical State
Concern.
I also recommend $829,000 over the biennium to provide resources
to monitor and evaluate the enforcement of Developments of Re-
gional Impact and an additional $1 million in each year of the
biennium to provide funds to improve the coastal zone protection
elements of local comprehensive plans.
To enable regional planning councils to complete four elements of
their comprehensive regional policy plans, I recommend an appro-
priation of $1.9 million over the biennium. These elements are:
public facilities, transportation, natural resources and developmen-
tal framework. The plans will provide the link between local compre-
hensive plans and state planning efforts.

Eminent Domain for Environmental Land Acquisition
Environmentally significant and recreational lands are becoming
increasingly expensive and the demand for such areas is growing
along with the population. The acquisition of complete and man-
ageable units of land is critical to the enhancement of the purpose
of the CARL program and in many cases is not possible without
eminent domain authority. Eminent domain is necessary on a project-
specific basis to achieve our goal of acquiring land for the public
benefit.

Prohibition Against Oil and Gas Drilling in Estuaries
Current law prohibits drilling for oil and gas in freshwater lakes,
rivers and streams. However, the vagueness of the law has resulted
in a court decision that allows drilling in bays and estuaries. Our
bays and estuaries are biologically the most productive marine
habitats in the state and are the nursery grounds for 75% of the
marine recreational and commercial species. The statutes should be
amended to clearly prohibit the drilling or exploring for oil and gas
in the bays and estuaries of Florida.

Coastal Protection by Mandating Coastal Zone Elements in
Local Government Comprehensive Plans
Florida's beautiful coastline has become synonymous with our state.
Our Gulf and ocean fronts are magnets attracting people and de-
velopment. Unfortunately, some of this development has taken place
in a manner that harms the scenic values of the area, accelerates
beach erosion and results in people residing in areas that are sub-
ject to storm and hurricanes jeopardizing their safety and property.
For these reasons, we need to strengthen our coastal protection
management programs requiring local governments to prepare com-
prehensive plans that address these issues. Legislation is necessary
to ensure that the administration of the state's coastal construction
control line regulations are related to local comprehensive plans
that assure a maximum degree of protection to the value of coastal
resources and adequately protects people, safety and property.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Pui Sae



Together, we have directed attention to our criminal justice system
in the past four years, increasing state agencies' resources to fight
crime by 89% and providing additional resources for local law en-
forcement agencies.
As one example of our enhancement of criminal justice system
capabilities, the total number of staff for the 20 State Attorneys'
Offices increased from 1,756 in 1978 to 2,764 positions in 1982-83 -a
57% increase. My budget proposes an additional increase of 141
positions in 1983-85. As a result of our initial augmentation, crimi- ,
nal filings have increased by 65% since 1978. The number of circuit
court judges has increased 16% since 1978, and the number of
criminal dispositions has increased by almost 90%.
Our investment in criminal justice over the past four years is
beginning to pay dividends. The index crime rate has declined in
each of the past two years from its peak in 1980; in 1981, it declined
3.6% and in 1982 another 7.3% decline has further reduced the
total rate. Considering that Florida's crime rate decline in 1981
was more than twice the national average, the 10.7% decline since
1980 is estimated to be one of the most significant per capital crime
reductions in the nation.
Florida's fight against crime has produced tangible benefits for
the citizens, but there is still more to be done. We must address the Inm ate
issues of sentencing and prison overcrowding. It is also time to turn Popull tion
our attention to minimizing the causes of crime, including child
abuse and alcohol and drug abuse.

Sentencing of Criminals '
An effective criminal justice system requires public confidence in
the sentencing of criminals. Yet, throughout Florida, sentencing
disparity exists among and within individual judicial circuits.
Such disparity is, in part, a result of the fact that trial judges
have generally unrestricted sentencing discretion within liberal
statutory limits.
To ensure public confidence in the criminal justice system, the
sentences imposed by the courts must be definitive and significant.
We cannot, for example, expect the public to be confident in a
system in which the average sentence for burglaries is 42 months,
but the average time served is only 24 months.
I urge the implementation of sentencing guidelines that are con-
sistent and meaningful in determining the length of an offender's
actual stay in prison. The Sentencing Guidelines Commission is to
be commended for its dedicated work in devising an appropriate
sentencing policy for statewide judicial applicability. The assist-
ance of the Legislature and judiciary are necessary to ensure re-
finement and implementation of Sentencing Guidelines by September
1983.

Prison Overcrowding
Between 1974-82, the number of offenders incarcerated in the state
corrections system expanded from 11,335 to 26,161, an increase of
130%. Comparatively, the overall population of the state increased
only 23%. f
If these increases continue to go unabated, the inmate population
will exceed available capacities permitted by the federal courts. We
must act now to ensure that dangerous criminals will not be re- 82 83 84 8 86

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



By June 1982, this inordinate growth rate in prison population
had become so critical that a special legislative session was called
to address prison overcrowding. In addition to providing a special
appropriation of $24.5 million, primarily for bed construction to
alleviate immediate overcrowding, the Legislature created a Cor-
rections Overcrowding Task Force to develop recommendations con-
cerning long-range corrections policy.
The product of this task force is a series of 57 recommendations
that address prison admissions, release mechanisms, program de-
livery and population forecasting techniques. Implementation of
these recommendations requires changing administrative procedures,
revising statutory provisions and providing additional resources.
I have worked closely with the legislative members of the Task
Force to develop legislation that implements its recommendations.
Adoption of this legislation is an important first step toward avert-
ing an overcrowding crisis in our prison system.
I urge your serious consideration of these recommendations.

Diversionary Alternatives
Further, we must prepare to divert offenders into community-based
programs consistent with the public interest and safety. To accom-
plish this, we have recommended statutory revisions, incorporated
into a corrections reform act, which will be before you for action
during this session.
Additionally, I encourage you to adopt our budget recommenda-
tion, providing $681,000 in 1983-84 and $1.5 million in 1984-85 for
eight new probation and restitution centers. This commitment rep-
resents a 92% expansion in the number of residential probation
treatment slots throughout the state. Further, the recommendation
includes $3 million in 1983-84 and $5.9 million in 1984-85 for
improving the supervision ratios for felony probationers, and, more
importantly, implementing a community control program. This in-
tense supervision program will give the judiciary a viable option for
sanctioning convicted offenders in the community who would oth-
erwise be sent to prison. In effect, the program will reduce prison
overcrowding and provide punishment and rehabilitation at mini-
mal state costs.

Facility Construction
While it is estimated that these initiatives will reduce the fore-
casted prison population for 1985 by at least 1,323 inmates, the
requirements in the settlement agreement stemming from the Costello
v. Wainwright case dictate construction of additional prison space.
The court is requiring us to eliminate approximately 4,000 prison
beds from the current inventory by the end of the biennium. Ad-
dressing this need, our budget provides $51 million over the bien-
nium to construct 2,448 new prison beds.

Emergency Release Mechanism
Complementing these initiatives, the Task Force recommended a
mechanism to provide immediate relief in emergency overcrowding
situations. The proposed legislation authorizes implementation of
an emergency release procedure when the inmate population is in
danger of exceeding the court-imposed maximum capacity. This
legislation includes stringent criteria to minimize the risk to the
public, and is a desirable alternative to any possible indiscriminate
release order that might otherwise be forced upon the state by the
federal courts.

Prison Work Program
To reduce inmate idleness and increase the self-sufficiency of the
prison system, while concurrently providing expanded job training
opportunities for incarcerated offenders, our 1983-85 budget rec-



commendation provides $3.5 million in 1983-84, $5.3 million in 1984-85
and $6.8 million in fixed capital outlay for the expansion or addi-
tion of 25 correctional work programs creating 800 new inmate
work stations.
Additionally, issues funded in the recommendation include $750,000
to establish a revolving fund to accelerate the transition of indus-
tries to the private non-profit corporation authorized in Chapter
81-125, Laws of Florida, to lease and operate the prison industries
programs of the Department of Corrections, and $1.2 million in
general revenue funds to enhance industries production.

Child Abuse Prevention
During 1981-82, there were over 71,000 Florida youngsters reported
as being abused or neglected. In Florida, half of all children in
foster care were removed from their homes due to neglect. Physical
abuse accounts for about 15% of these removals and sexual abuse
accounts for about 3% of the removals.
Of the children reported abused or neglected, 38% later developed
histories of truancy and running away or delinquent behavior.
Almost 65% of the children admitted to Florida's state mental
hospitals in 1978 had histories of abuse and neglect. National stud-
ies on prison populations indicate that a majority of the inmates
were abused children.
For these reasons, I have recommended and urge you to appro-
priate $2.9 million in 1983-84 and $4.4 million in 1984-85 to pro-
vide programs to prevent child abuse and neglect.

Preventive Alternatives to Street Crime
ALCOHOL ABUSE PREVENTION
The majority of the statewide alcohol rehabilitation services are
devoted to older, more chronic clients, yet an estimated 8% of Flori-
da's youth between the ages of 14-19 are in need of treatment
services. There are no specialized services for children of alcoholics
who are statistically at high risk of becoming alcoholics and/or
developing significant emotional and special problems as a result of
parental alcoholism. Currently, only 2.2% of all admissions to alco-
hol rehabilitation programs are under 18 years of age. The $600,000
recommended for each year for residential and outpatient services
for Alcohol Abusing Youth would provide four residential treat-
ment programs and also funding for outpatient services and an
additional $480,000 in 1984-85 for specialized services for children
of alcoholics.
The criminal justice system refers 32% of all the admissions to the
statewide community alcohol services programs. In addition, 11%
of the referrals are clients from the DUI/DWI Driving Schools. The
impact of alcoholism and related problems has emphasized the need
for improved liaison between the courts/law enforcement and com-
munity alcohol services and additional resources for the increased
driving school referrals. For these reasons I have included $240,000
each year to improve liaison functions and $689,000 in 1983-84 and
$773,000 in 1984-85 for increased alcohol client referrals.
DRUG ABUSE PREVENTION
Problems associated with drug abuse involve much more than the
health and well-being of the individual. The impact on society
includes everything from the involvement in drug abuse of younger
and younger children, to crimes against Florida's citizens as a
means to support the ever-increasing expense of the continued abuse.
Currently, the program Treatment Alternatives to Street Crime serves
as a resource to both the criminal justice system and to drug abus-
ers. My budget proposal continues this successful program, but
recommends the consolidation of its administration, which is cur-
rently split between the Departments of Community Affairs and

Health & Rehabilitative Services. In addition, improvements in our
services to youth should include additional residential treatment in
several areas of the state and increased staffing improvements
within existing residential treatment facilities, for which I have
provided $972,000 in 1983-84 and $1.6 million in 1984-85.
Finally, public awareness and education can do much to deter
future drug involvement and the recommendation has combined
existing resources with additional funding to provide for a state-
wide campaign to reduce drug abuse among our citizens.

Specialized Services for
Runaways, Truants, Children Beyond Control
In 1981-82, approximately 23,000 youths were referred to the De-
partment of Health & Rehabilitative Services for what is termed
"status offender behavior". These include runaways, truants and
children who are beyond the control of their parents. This group of
children represents 10.3% of the juveniles referred to single intake
for alleged delinquency or dependency. Due to a lack of resources,
66.4% of these juvenile cases are disposed of without the provision
of any services to deter this behavior or its causes. So that the needs
of this group can be addressed in the communities where the need is
felt most acutely, I have recommended $790,000 in 1983-84 and
$1.6 million in 1984-85 to provide specialized programs for children
who are status offenders.

Health & Ha n es

As we continue to concentrate our efforts on fighting crime, we
must not ignore the needs and concerns of those law-abiding citi-
zens who depend upon us particularly the elderly, the disadvan-
taged, children and those with mental and physical health problems.
Community Care for the Elderly
Approximately 2,300,000 Florida citizens, or 24% of the total popu-
lation, are over 60 years of age. This group, particularly those older
than 75, is Florida's fastest-growing population segment. To live
productively within the community, Florida's older citizens need a
range of housing alternatives, easy access to shopping and health
care facilities, and a variety of services including recreation, con-
tinuing education, homemaking and family support services.
To meet the needs of Florida's elderly citizens, I urge you to
appropriate $16.1 million over the biennium to increase community
care for the elderly core services to more than 34,000 individuals by
1985. I am also recommending additional funding for subsidies to
relatives or other persons caring for the elderly, for provision of
adult day care and enforcement of congregate living facilities regu-
lation, and for reimbursement to community-based facilities.

Constituency for Children
Approximately 25% of the state's population is below the age of 18.
In the interests of these young people, I am recommending $200,000
over the biennium to establish a constituency for children program.
Its purpose is to cut across the traditional structures of government
and private sector programs for children.
This program is designed to focus on the unmet needs of children
-in education, in drug and alcohol abuse prevention, in the courts
and in the human services bureaucracy.
The constituency for children program will emphasize local com-
munity action and will encourage coordination between voluntary,
private groups and public agencies. I urge your approval of this
recommendation.

Deinstitutionalization
COMMUNITY MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
The client population within Florida's mental health institutions
has been reduced by over 40% in the last 10 years. The alternatives
to institutional placement have increased substantially in that time
and now include 13 deinstitutionalization projects throughout the
state. However, there are still approximately 3,500 civil clients
residing in our mental institutions, many of whom meet the re-
quirements for placement in community alternatives. My recom-
mendation provides 9 new projects to be phased in over the bienni-
um, 4 for geriatric clients and 5 projects for adult clients, at a cost of
$2.2 million in 1983-84 and $7.8 million in 1984-85.
DEVELOPMENTAL SERVICES
During the last 10 years we have reduced the Sunland Training
Center population by 45%. We are presently in the process of re-
placing the two multi-floor centers, Tallahassee and Orlando Sunlands,
with smaller, more homelike facilities nearer the clients' homes. In
addition, we are proposing a phaseout plan for the Fort Myers
Sunland, which will replace the center with smaller community
facilities. These recommendations show a continued commitment to
Florida's deinstitutionalization policy of limiting the effects of large
impersonal institutions on clients. For these reasons I am recom-
mending and urge you to appropriate $4.3 million to complete the
construction of the developmental clusters and 3 positions, $77,000
in 1983-84 and 6 positions, $5.2 million in 1984-85 to begin the
phaseout of the Fort Myers Sunland.

AFDC-Aid to Families with Dependent Children
Approximately 290,000 Florida residents depend on the AFDC fi-
nancial assistance program to meet their basic daily needs. The
purpose of the program is to help needy families to become self-
supporting while allowing children to remain in their own homes.
To continue a reasonable standard of living for these low income
families, I recommend an appropriation of $6.2 million in 1983-84
to increase the payment standard for a family of four from $263 to
$273 per month and an appropriation of $29.7 million in 1984-85 to
provide annualization and an additional 5% increase to $286 per
month.

Health Care Costs
In meeting the demands of Florida's Medicaid Program, and in
focusing attention on medical malpractice insurance, we are seek-
ing to cure the symptoms of a more generalized illness: escalating
health care costs. It is urgent that we begin to address these issues.
MEDICAID
The Florida Medicaid Program provides necessary basic health care
for approximately 550,000 low income families, aged, blind and
disabled adults. To control the spiraling cost of the Medicaid Pro-
gram, a variety of innovative cost containment and cost avoidance
strategies are being developed and implemented. The Task Force
on Competition and Consumer Choices in Health Care is assessing
proposed and potential Medicaid cost containment initiatives as
part of their comprehensive study of medical care cost control issues.
To continue essential benefit coverage, I am recommending ap-
propriation of $57.1 million in FY 1983-84 and $129.7 million in FY
1984-85 to provide for projected increases in the average unit cost
for medical care services. I recommend $74.1 million in FY 1983-84
and $118 million in FY 1984-85 to provide for increased utilization
of Medicaid services for projected increases in the Medicaid caseload,
and $17.4 million in FY 1983-84 and $20.7 million in FY 1984-85 to
annualize the nursing home reimbursement plan implemented in
FY 1982-83. The recommendation contemplates various cost con-
tainment initiatives designed to accomplish a $20 million reduction
in program costs in FY 1983-84 and a $25 million reduction in
program costs in FY 1984-85.
Medical Malpractice
Last year some physicians in Florida threatened to strike because
of the high cost of medical and malpractice insurance. Multi-million
dollar malpractice awards have placed the Patients Compensation
Fund in jeopardy. Again, the medical malpractice crisis is but a
symptom of a health care delivery system whose costs are out of
control. I urge you to consider this issue carefully, mindful that the
health care industry is to care for people, and should not be de-
signed to serve the interest of physicians, hospitals, insurance com-
panies or trial attorneys. I support Insurance Commissioner Bill
Gunter's program to reform medical malpractice insurance as a
sound basis for legislative action.









These are among the most important issues before you. In my
1983 State of the State speech, I address the need to improve our
education system, a system upon which Florida's prosperity depends.
All of these issues are interrelated. Our economy depends upon a
fine system of public schools. Prosperity will enable us to afford
such a school system, along with other essential services including
public safety and care for the elderly.
Economic development will, as well, place growing demands upon
us to provide such services. And population increases will require
us to skillfully manage growth, to maintain the quality of life that
makes Florida so attractive.

Special Orders
HCR 467-A concurrent resolution declaring April to be "Child
Abuse and Neglect Prevention Month."
WHEREAS, in calendar year 1982 there were 91,408 children
involved in reported cases of abuse and neglect, representing a 29
percent increase of the reported number in calendar year 1981, and
a 274 percent increase of the reported number when our state first
began documenting such cases in 1974-1975, and
WHEREAS, in calendar year 1981 there were 3,300 cases of
sexual assault on children in Florida; however, national studies
indicate that one in ten females will be victims of sexual assault by
relatives during childhood and one in four children will experience
some form of sexual abuse, and
WHEREAS, studies have shown that up to 90 percent of prison
inmates were abused as children, and 70 percent of all sex offenders
have themselves been victims of a sexual assault or sexual trauma
during their childhood, and
WHEREAS, national and state studies have indicated the emo-
tional disturbance, brain damage, mental retardation, and physical
deformities that such abuse and neglect heaps upon its victims, and
WHEREAS, national and state studies have indicated the far-
reaching effects of abuse and neglect stretching from generation to
generation with the abused becoming the abuser, and
WHEREAS, the Legislature, recognizing that child abuse and
neglect is an immensely complex and important family problem
and, at the same time, that the most precious, most vulnerable
resource and hope of the state is its children, declared last session
that the prevention of child abuse and neglect shall be a priority of
the state, and
WHEREAS, April is National Child Abuse and Neglect Preven-
tion Month, and
WHEREAS, during the month of April, various state and local
social service agencies, public and private organizations, civic groups,
and local schools will be highlighting public awareness of child
abuse and neglect prevention, NOW, THEREFORE,
Be It Resolved by the House of Representatives of the State of Flori-
da, the Senate Concurring:
That April be known and is hereby proclaimed to be "Child
