STATE OF FLORIDA

sentatives:
I regret that an Extraordinary Session of the Legislature is
inevitable. Necessary relief has not been given to our schools.
Provision has not been made for the support of the State Gov-
"ernment and of the State Institutions by appropriation and reve-
nue measures. The problems of finance and taxation, State,
County and Municipal, are yet unsolved. I am sure you will
consider these matters vital to the welfare of the State and
welcome an opportunity to complete your task.
THEREFORE, WHEREAS, necessary provision has not been
made for our Common Schools and Institutions of Higher Learn-
ing, and
. WHEREAS, Provision has not been made for raising revenue
sufficient to defray the expenses of the State Government and
support the State Institutions as expressly provided by Section
2, Article 9, of the Constitution of the State, and
WHEREAS, no appropriation has been made for paying the
necessary expense of the State Government and said Institutions
as required by Section 4, Article 9, of the Constitution of the
State, and
WHEREAS, the problems of finance and taxation have not
been solved,
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Doyle E. Carlton, Governor of the
State of Florida, by virtue of the power and authority vested in
me by the Constitution of the State, do hereby convene the
Legislature of the State of Florida in extra session at the
Capitol in Tallahassee, at twelve o'clock, noon, June first, 1929,
for the purpose of considering the enactment of laws on the
above mentioned subjects and such other subjects as the wel-
fare of the State may require and the Constitution of the State
permits.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and have
caused the Great Seal of the State of Florida to be affixed
hereunder, at Tallahassee, the Capital of the State, this thirty-
first day of May, A. D. 1929, and of the Independence of the
United States of America the One Hundred and Fifty-fourth
Year.

sentatives:
Gentlemen:
That there may be no misunderstanding as to the scope of my
proclamation for the Special Session to convene June first, 1929,
beg to advise that the call was limited to the subjects enumerated.
The last clause, to-wit, "and such other subjects as the welfare
of the State may require and the constitution of the State per-

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

The Journal of Saturday, June 1, was corrected, and as cor-

The Speaker announced that Mr. Gillis would be excused from
attendance upon the House tonight.
The following communication was received, read, and ordered
spread upon the Journal.
To the Honorable Senate and House of Recpresentatirets:
Pursuant to proclamation heretofore made convening Special
Session, I respectfully call to your special attention measures
which in my opinion should have your consideration.
It is of the utmost importance that a Central Board be estab-
lished to handle the sinking funds of outstanding Road and
Bridge bonds, and apply to the payment of these obligations a
portion of the gasoline tax.
There should be an equitable distribution of the gas tax so as
to provide a reasonable amount for the Road Department, a
reasonable amount to indebtedness and at the same time furnish
relief to the schools.
The program as outlined by measures which you have here-
tofore considered would result in stabilizing our schools, holding
down the taxes and at the same time carry on necessary im-
provement.
Our present tax collection law should be amended so that the
cost of collection may be reduced, the collection procedure sim-
plified and the results made certain. Until this is done, there
will be little security forth support of our schools and the dis-
charge of other obligations of the Government.
In view of the fact that $30,000,000 is now due the State for
back taxes, steps must be taken for the collection of these ob-
ligations. In many cases the tax is exorbitant. In other cases
property owners are indifferent to payment.
I respectfully recommend that authority be vested in the
Board of County Commissioners with the approval of the State
Comptroller, or in some similar Board, to adjust on a basis of
fairness to the property owner and the government taxes where-
ever excessive. Much of the property will never return to the
tax books until this adjustment is made. It will be good business
on the part of the State and fairness to the property owner to
make these adjustments.
Along with this program outstanding liens fairly adjusted
should be validated that this indebtedness may be discharged.
I would also call to your attention the importance of measures
relating to the schools, providing for the selection of uniform
textbooks for primary and high schools, providing for the crea-
tion of the position of Director of Buildings and Standards under
the authority of the State Board of Education, and also provid-
ing for a Director of Finance under authority of the State Board
of Education.
I heretofore recommended the redistricting of the Judicial
Circuits of our State, and have withheld sending names of the
respective Circuit Judges and State's Attorneys to the Senate in
order that these appointments might not be in the way of a
proper redistricting. I again call to your attention the im-
portance of this measure.
The office of Special Assistant to the Attorney General should
be abolished and save this useless expense.



Provision should be made .for appropriate reports of the
various county officers and regulation of their expenses.
The law providing for a State Health Officer should be
amended. Without a doubt the State Health Officer is acting
without constitutional authority and work of this Department
is likely to be interrupted at any time unless placed on sound
legal grounds.

It is the intention of this Act that all indebtedness authorized

this Act issued for the purpose of constructing roads and bridges
within the several counties of the State, whether such indebted-
ness shall have been issued as a county obligation or issued
as an obligation of a special road and bridge district, or refund-
ing bond issued to retire either principal or interest, or both,
of county road and bridge obligation or special road and bridge
district obligation, shall be eligible to participate in the distribu-
tion of such money. Any bonds issued by any county or special
road and bridge district for the construction of any bridge
and ferries, for the use of which tolls are charged, shall be in-
cluded as herein provided in determining the amount of money
to be allotted to such county under the provisions of this Act,
provided that any sinking funds heretofore accumulated by such
county or district from tolls, and any interest accrued thereon,
shall remain the property of such county and in the custody
and control of the Administrative Board of such county now
having custody and control thereof by law, and such County
Administrative Board may use and apply such funds as author-
ized by the law authorizing the issuance of such bonds for such
toll bridge or ferry to meet all maturing principal and interest
requirements of the bonds issued to construct such toll bridge
or ferry. The provisions of this Act shall not apply to any
money or fund on hand, whether held by trustees, county com-
missioners or other officers, accruing from the collection of tolls
and for the purpose of paying principal and interest of bonds
issued to construct such toll bridges or ferries, but any such
money or funds shall be and remain the property of the county
and shall be used by such county only for the purpose of paying
maturing principal and interest of such bonds as authorized
by law, provided, however, that no bonds issued by any county or
district for the construction of any toll bridge or ferry shall
be included in the bonded indebtedness of any county toward
which any allocation of gasoline tax moneys may be applied under
the provisions of this Act, except to the extent that the toll
collections upon such toll bridge or toll road shall be insufficient
in any fiscal year to meet the bonded debt charges of such toll
bridge, road or ferry for such fiscal year. In the event of
any insufficiency of toll collections upon any county or district
toll bridge, ferry or road for which bonds have been issued to
meet the bonded debt charge of such toll bridge, ferry or road
for any fiscal year in which gasoline tax moneys become allocable
under the provisions of this Act, the amount of bonded indebted-
ness of any county on account of such toll road, bridge or ferry
upon which allocation of gasoline tax moneys may be permitted
under this Act shall be only the amount of principal repre-
sented by the deficit computed upon the rate of interest of
the bonds outstanding upon such toll bridge, road or ferry. All
bonds issued by counties or otherwise that are payable out of
the proceeds of special assessments levied upon abutting prop-
erty shall not participate, unless such bonds were issued for the
purpose of building or constructing a road or highway which
has been designated as a State road or highway.

It is the intention of this Act that all indebtedness authorized

structing roads and bridges within the several Counties of the
State, whether such indebtedness shall have been issued as a
County obligation or issued as an obligation of a Special Road
and Bridge District, or refunding bond issued to retire either
principal or interest, or both, of County road and bridge obliga-
tion or Special Road and Bridge District obligation, shall be
eligible to participate in the distribution of such money. Any
bonds issued by any County or Special Road and Bridge District
for the construction of any bridges and ferries for the use of
which tolls are charged, shall be included as herein provided in
determining the amount of money to be allotted to such County
under the provisions of this Act, provided that any sinking funds
heretofore accumulated by such County or District from tolls,
and any interest accrued thereon, shall remain the property or
such County and in the custody and control of the Administrative
Board of such County now having custody and control thereof
by law, and such County Administrative Board may use and
apply such funds as authorized by the law authorizing the issu-
ance of such bonds for such toll bridge or ferry to meet all
maturing principal and interest requirements of the bonds issued
to construct such toll bridge or ferry. The provisions of this Act
shall not apply to any money or fund on hand, whether held by
Trustees, County Commissioners or other officers, accruing from
the collection of tolls and for the purpose of paying principal
and interest of bonds issued to construct such toll bridges or
ferries, but any such money or funds shall be and remain the
property of the County and shall be used by such County only
for the purpose of paying maturing principal and interest of such
bonds as authorized by law, provided, however, that no bonds
issued by any County or District for the construction of any toll
bridge or ferry shall be included in the bonded indebtedness of
any County toward which any allocation of gasoline tax moneys
may be applied under the provisions of any law, except to the
extent that the toll collections upon such tbll bridge or toll road
shall be insufficient in any fiscal year to meet the bonded debt
charges of such toll bridge, road or ferry for such fiscal year. In
the event of any insufficiency of toll collections upon any County
or District toll bridge, ferry or road for which bonds have been
issued to meet the bonded debt charge of such toll bridge, ferry
or road for any fiscal year in which gasoline tax moneys become
allocable under the provisions of law, the amount of bonded
indebtedness of any County on account of such toll road, bridge
or ferry upon which allocation of gasoline tax moneys may be
permitted under this Act shall be only the amount of principal
represented by the deficit computed upon the rate of interest of
the bonds outstanding upon such toll bridge, road or ferry. All
bonds issued by Counties or otherwise that are payable out of
the proceeds of special assessments levied upon abutting property
shall not participate, unless such bonds were issued for the pur-

been designated as a State Road or Highway.

Leesburg, Fla., June 10, 1929.
Mr. Frank Webb,
Chief Clerk, House of Representatives,
Tallahassee, Fla.
Dear Mr. Webb:
Will you please grant me pardon for failing to acknowl-
edge your letter of May, the twenty-first, in which was
enclosed copy of the House Resolutions on the passing
of my beloved husband, Dr. William A. MacKenzie.
You will know without my saying so that the delay was
not due to negligence or lack of appreciation.
Even at this late date, when the members are gathered
in another session, will you not express to the Committee
on Resolutions and to the Speaker my heartfelt thanks
that they were so thoughtful of their former fellow-
worker and of the ones he left bereaved.
I know that the Doctor, were he alive now, and knew
that something expressing as beautiful a sentiment had
been done for him or his, would never forget it, and
neither shall I.
With sincere thanks for your thoughtful promptness in
sending me a copy of the resolution, I am,
Truly yours,
CAROLINE V. -MAcKENZIE.

CONSIDERATION OF VETO MESSAGE
The following communication from Hon. H. Clay Crawford,
Secretary of State was received and read:
Office of the Secretary of State,
Tallahassee, Fla., June 12, 1920.
Hon. Samuel V. Getzen,
Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Sir:
In conformity with the requirement of the Constitution of the
State of Florida, I herewith transmit to you, for the considera-
tion of the House of Representatives, the following vetoed Acts
with the Governor's objections attached thereto, viz.:
(Committee Substitute for House Bill No. 20):
An Act to promote and increase the Shell Fish Industry of the
State of Florida, and making an appropriation therefore.
(House Bill No. 1188):
An Act abolishing certain compensations to be received by
sheriffs in all counties of the State of Florida with a population
according to the last State census, of not less than 5,811 nor
more than 5,850.
(House Bill No. 1147):
An Act authorizing Putnam County to operate and maintain a
free public library; providing for the levy of taxes for the sup-
port thereof; providing for election of trustees by the Board
of Public Instruction and providing for the operation and general
improvement of such library.
(House Bill No 799):
An Act to repeal Chapter 12997, Acts of 1927, Laws of Florida,
entitled "An Act to abolish the present municipal government of
the City of Lecanto in Citrus County, Florida, and to establish
and organize a municipality in Citrus County, Florida, to be
known and designated as the City of Lecanto and to define its
territorial boundaries and to provide for its government, juris-
diction, powers, franchises and privileges," and to provide for
the protection of the creditors of said City of Lecanto which is
hereby abolished.
(House Bill No. 977):
An Act to amend Section 3 of Chapter 12392, Acts of 1927,
Laws of Florida, entitled "An Act to declare, designate and estab-
lish a certain State road," said State road being in the counties
of Leon and Wakulla.
Yours very truly,
H. CLAY CRAWFORD,
Secretary of State.
Also-
The following veto message was read:



June 10, 1929.
Hon' H. Clay Crawford,
Secretary of State.
Capitol.
Sir:
Pursuant to authority vested in me as Governor, under provi-
sions of Section 28, Article 3, of the .Constitution of Florida, I
transmit to you with my objections thereto Committee Substi-
tute for House Bill No. 20, the same having originated in the
House of Representatives, Regular Session 1929, and being en-
titled as follows:
"An Act to promote and increase the shellfish industry of the
State of Florida, and making an appropriation therefore "
The planting and rehabilitation of oyster beds is a worthy pur-
pose. Since the fish and oyster industry, however, yields ap-
proximately $26,000,000 per year, and pays such a small amount
of tax in proportion thereto, the industry should at least be self-
supporting. A provision for such improvement out of funds to
be derived from this industry would be justified, but not out of
the general revenue of the State.
For this reason I have withheld my approval of the foregoing
measure.
Respectfully,
DOYLE E. CARLTON, Governor.
Mr. Lewis moved that Committee Substitute for House Bill No.
20 be passed, the veto of the Governor to the contrary notwith-
standing.
Upon the call of the roll on the passage of Committee Substi-
tute for House Bill No. 20, of the 1929 Regular Session, the veto
of the Governor to the contrary notwithstanding, the vote was:
Yeas-Mr. Speaker, Messrs. Airth, Albury, Beasley, Bevis, Black,
Booth (Duval), Booth (Pinellas), Brock, Bullard, Caldwell, Carn,
Carroll, Chadwick, Chappell, Collier, Cone, Crouch, Doug-
lass, Entzminger, Faircloth, Fuller, Fullerton, Gillis, Grady, Ha-
gan, Harper, Hazen, Hobson, Home, Huntley, Jackson, Kanner,
Kelly, Kerr, Larson, Leonard, Lewis, Light, Mathews, Matthis,
Meigs, Millinor, Moody, Moon, Moore, McLin, Ogilvie, Parker
(Leon), Peeples (Glades), Peeples (Suwannee), Pepper, Petree,
Prine, Robineau, Sledge, Stephens, Stewart, Stokes, Teague, Tram-
mell, Turner, Villeneuve, Walden, Ward, Way, Weeks, Wood, Zim
-68.
Nays-Messrs. Andrews, Auvil, Bloodworth, Day, Kennedy, Lee,
Lowe, Merchant, McKenzie, Perry, Surrency, Sweger, Tomasello,
Westbrook-14.
So the bill passed, title as stated, by the constitutional two-
thirds vote of all the members elected to the House of Represen-
tatives of the Florida Legislature for the 1929 session.
-EXPLANATION OF VOTE
I vote "aye" to passage of the bill, the veto of the Governor to
the contrary notwithstanding, because I consider that the oyster
industry of Florida is indeed important. Having a parity of farm-
ing and other industries of our State which affect the common
laboring people. I believe that conditions warrant such appropri-
ation. Realizing conditions of the treasury, the oyster industry
where this appropriation will affect is considered the best in the
United States and such should not be destroyed. I regret to vote
against the Governor's veto.

An Act abolishing certain compensations to be received by
sheriffs in all counties of the State of Florida with a population
according to the last State census, of not less than 5,811 nor
more than 5,850.
This measure seeks to regulate the fees of an officer of a
certain county, whereas the spirit of the law contemplates that
officers' fees shall be uniform.
For the above stated reason I have withheld my approval from
the measure.
Very respectfully,
DOYLE E. CARLTON,
Governor.
Mr. Harper moved that House Bill No. 1188 be passed, the veto

Florida Legislature for the session of 1929.
Also the following message was received and read:
June 10, 1929.
Honorable H. Clay Crawford,
Secretary of State,
Capitol.
Sir:
Pursuant to authority vested in me as Governor, under pro-
visions of Section 28, Article 3 of the Constitution of Florida, I
transmit to you with my objections thereto, House Bill No. 1147,
the same having originated in the House of Representatives, Reg-
ular Session, 1929, and being entitled as follows:
"An Act authorizing Putnam County to operate and maintain a
free public library; providing for the levy of taxes for the support
thereof; providing for election of trustees by the Board of Public
Instruction and providing for the operation and general govern-
ment of such library."
This is a local bill passed by the Representatives and Senator of
Putnam County with misunderstanding as to its contents. The
bill makes it mandatory upon the county commissioners to levy
certain taxes whereas the local delegation thought that this was
optional.
Therefore, in keeping with request by W. F. Glenn, State
Senator, T. C. Douglass and H. S. McKenzie, I am withholding
my approval of this measure.
Respectfully yours,
DOYLE E. CARLTON,
Governor.
Mr. Douglass moved that House Bill No. 1147 be referred to
Committee on Governor's Message and Administrative Reports.
Which was agreed to.

members of the House of Representatives, was then referred to
the Committee on County Officials; later, on motion by Mr.

mittee on the Governor's proclamation, which committee made
an adverse report and the bill was considered as not coming
within the purview of the Governor's call for the extraordinary
session of the Legislature and same was ordered returned to the
introducer.

time been received into the House on the consent of the two-
thirds vote, that the same was erroneously referred to the
.Special Select Committee, and asked the ruling of the Chair
on this point of order.

bill had been properly introduced and received into the House
upon the constitutional two-thirds vote of all the members elected
to the House of Representatives for the 1929 session, and the
bill was again referred to the Committee on County Officials.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF PAIRS
I am paired with Representative Moody on Senate Bill No. 5.
If he were present, he would vote aye, and I would note no.
T. C. MERCHANT.
EXPLANATION OF VOTES
I vote "nay" on Senate Bill No. 5 because:
1. It recognizes a central administration board which has
jurisdiction over local affairs of the several counties of the
State, and is, therefore, a repudiation of the principle of local
self-government.
2. The bill levies a State tax for a county purpose, which is
prohibited by the provisions of Section 2 of Article 9 of the Con-
stitution.
3. Section 5 of Article 9 of the Constitution provides the
method of raising revenue for county purposes and this method
is exclusive of any or all other methods.
4. The bill attempts to levy a State tax for the purpose of pay-
ing the bonded indebtedness of counties and districts, and such
an attempt is in violation of Section 6 of Article 9 of the Con-
stitution which prohibits the Legislature from levying a tax or
appropriating State money for the purpose of paying bonds of
the State, and this provision has been interpreted in the Supreme
Court in the case of Martin v. Dade Muck Land Company, 116
Southern Reporter, page 463, as prohibiting the Legislature from
appropriating money to pay in whole or in part the bonded in-
debtedness of any political or governmental subdivision of the
State.
5. The bill attempts to levy a tax for common schools and to
apportion such tax for common school purposes to the several
counties of the State equally, that is to say: It attempts to divide
such money into sixty-seven equal parts and give each county
an equal part. This attempt is a plain violation of Section 7 of
Article 12 of the Constitution, which requires the apportion-
ment to be in proportion to the average attendance upon schools,
and also Section 9, which requires the distribution to be made
by general law, based upon some declared principle of classi-
fication.
6. If taxes are levied as State taxes, they can only be levied
under the provisions of Articles 9 and 12 of the Constitution,
and, when so levied, they can only be for the purposes therein
authorized and then can only be distributed in the manner there-
in provided.
7. The bill does not make adequate provisions for the schools.
8. It unnecessarily cuts down the revenue of the State Road
Department.
9. The bill, as a whole, amounts to revolution in government
and is a repudiation of the whole theory of State and county
government as ordained and determined in the Constitution.
JOHN E. MATHEWS.
I vote no because this bill diverts money from the schools of
Hillsborough County.
TOM WALDEN, Hillsborough County.
I vote no for the following reasons:
The measure is unconstitutional, wrong in principle, contrary
to every theory of political economy, violative of the American













JOURNAL OF THE HOUSI



principle of self-government, and is detrimental to the prefer-
ential system of State highways.
M. F. CALDWELL, JR.
Senate Bill No. 5:
I vote in favor of the bill, but with serious doubts as to its
constitutionality and with the understanding that an additional
gasoline tax of one cent is to be levied for school purposes to be
distributed by general law as provided by the Constitution.
D. STUART GILLIS.
Mr. Gillis moved that further consideration of the Special
Order Calendar be temporarily passed until introduction and dis-
posal of a bill which he would introduce.
Which was agreed to by a two-thirds vote.
The Speaker Protem in the chair.
