Journal OF THE



House of Representatives


FIRST SPECIAL SESSION-"A" of 1986-1988



Number 1 Wednesday, February 4, 1987



Journal of the House of Representatives for a Special Session of the Seventy-third House since Statehood in 1845,
convened by Proclamation of the Governor and held at the Capitol in the City of Tallahassee in the State of Florida,
on Wednesday, February 4, 1987.



The House was called to order by the Honorable Jon Mills, Speaker,
at 4:00 p.m.

Prayer

At the request of Representative Burke, the House observed a
moment of silence in memory of the late Herbert J. Mills, father of the
Speaker.
The following prayer was offered by Representative James C. Burke:
The 11th chapter, 14th verse of Proverbs reads: "For lack of
guidance, a nation falls but many advisors make victory sure." And we
have many advisors and many leaders who ask You, Father, that our
advice be sure, our principles right and our hearts pure. We ask that
You make this body responsive to its citizens and responsive to the
principles of our nation and our state.
For the many blessings You've given all of us, who are here
assembled, we thank You. For the many blessings You've given to the
people of Florida, we thank You. Please let us go on for we know the
time is right. Amen.
The following Proclamation was read:

PROCLAMATION
State of Florida
Executive Department
Tallahassee
TO THE HONORABLE MEMBERS OF THE FLORIDA SENATE
AND THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
WHEREAS, the total inmate population in the corrections system
administered by the Florida Department of Corrections is rapidly
approaching the legal capacity of the corrections system established by
Florida Statutes and, absent relief, may soon exceed the capacity of the
corrections system established by the United States District Court in
Costello v. Wainwright; and
WHEREAS, it is necessary for the Legislature to immediately
address the funding needs of the Florida Department of Corrections
resulting from the unfunded increase in the inmate population of the
corrections system as aforesaid and to address the lack of an acceptable
method of managing the release of inmates in the corrections system in
the event the inmate population reaches the legal capacity of the
corrections system.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BOB MARTINEZ, Governor of the State of
Florida, by virtue of the power and authority vested in me by Article
III, Section 3(c)(1), Florida Constitution, do hereby proclaim as follows:
Section 1.
That the Legislature of the State of Florida is convened in Special
Session commencing at 4 p.m., Wednesday, February 4, 1987, and
extending through noon, Thursday, February 5, 1987.



Section 2.
That the Legislature of the State of Florida is convened for the sole
and exclusive purpose of considering the following matters:
(a) Legislation appropriating the funds necessary to fund the author-
ized advanced spending undertaken by the Florida Department of
Corrections in response to the unexpected increase in the inmate
population of the corrections system for the 1986-1987 fiscal year; and
(b) Legislation authorizing the Secretary of the Department of
Corrections to grant a limited amount of administrative gain time to a
restricted class of inmates based on the nature of the offenses for which
they were convicted and their behavior while in custody in order to
maintain the inmate population of the corrections system at or below
legal capacity without having to resort to the existing emergency
release provisions established by Florida Statutes.
IN TESTIMONY, WHEREOF, I have
hereunto set my hand and caused the
Great Seal of the State of Florida to be
affixed to this Proclamation convening
the Legislature in Special Session at the
Capitol, this 30th day of January, 1987.
BOB MARTINEZ
Governor

Communications

Vetoed Bills
The following veto messages were received:

Honorable Jon Mills February 3, 1987

Speaker, House of Representatives

Dear Mr. Speaker:

In compliance with the provisions of Article III, Section 8(b), of the
State Constitution, I am transmitting to you for consideration of the
House the following vetoed bills, 1986 Regular Session, with the
Governor's objections attached thereto:
CS/HB 83 Relating to fishing
CS/HB 1166 Relating to respiratory care

Sincerely,
GEORGE FIRESTONE
Secretary of State



Honorable George Firestone June 25, 1986
Secretary of State







Dear Mr. Secretary:
By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under the
provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, I do hereby withhold my approval of Committee Substitute for
House Bill 83, enacted by the Ninth Legislature of Florida under the
Florida Constitution, 1968 Revision, during the Regular Session of
1986, and entitled:
An act relating to fishing; amending s. 372.57, F.S., providing for
nonresident fishing licenses; providing for the periods of the licenses;
providing fees; amending s. 372.571, F.S., providing for an expiration
date for such licenses; amending s. 372.561, F.S., increasing the fee
charged by the issuing tax collector for the cost of issuing a license or
stamp tax to take wild animal life or freshwater aquatic life; repealing
ss. 9, 10, 11 and 12, chapter 85-324, Laws of Florida, relating to the
deduction of administration costs for issuing waterfowl stamps, the fee
charged for permits to use Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission lands for outdoor recreational purposes, the fee for
issuance of duplicate licenses, and the deduction of administrative
costs by county tax collectors for the issuance of licenses for freshwater
fish dealers, frog dealers, and other licenses for fish or frog dealers,
farmers, or takers, to avoid the conflicts that would arise as a result of
the passage to two laws in the 1985 session amending the same
sections of the Florida Statutes; amending s. 372.65, F.S., providing for
an aquaculture game fish license; providing effective dates.
The Florida Legislature enacted Committee Substitute for House
Bill 83 in an attempt to remedy a problem which has existed since the
1985 session when legislation inadvertently deleted a provision of the
Game and Fish laws which provided for a ten day nonresident fishing
license. Other technical changes were made in Committee Substitute
for House Bill 83 to the 1985 legislation which would have made it
easier for tax collectors and others to implement the law and to further
provide for aquaculture game fish licenses to be administered by the
Game and Fish Commission. The deletion of the nonresident fishing
permit has caused great concern among fish camp operators through-
out the state whose tourist oriented businesses have need for the
provision of the nonresident license. At the present time nonresident
fishermen are required to purchase a nonresident statewide fishing
license for a one-year period of time at a greater cost than the
nonresident ten day permit.
In enacting Committee Substitute for House Bill 83, however, the
Legislature acknowledges that certain technical title amendments and
other amendments were not made to reflect changes to the 1985 law.
Because of this concern with technical deficiencies in Committee
Substitute for House Bill 83, the Florida Legislature during the
Special Session on June 19, 1986, reenacted these provisions relating
to the nonresident fishing license and aquaculture license as well as
making certain other technical amendments to the 1985 act. This bill
was added to the Special Session call and passed by the required
two-thirds vote of each house.
















4 JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES February 4, 1987

With the enactment of Senate Bill 7B during the Special Session, the
sponsors of Committee Substitute for House Bill 83 have requested this
bill be vetoed on technical grounds and that Senate Bill 7B be signed
into law to resolve questions which have arisen regarding passage of
Committee Substitute for House Bill 83.
For the above reasons, I am withholding my approval of Committee
Substitute for House Bill 83, Regular Session of the Legislature,
commencing on April 8, 1986 and do hereby veto the same.
Sincerely,
BOB GRAHAM
Governor
-and the above vetoed bill (1986 Regular Session), together with
the Governor's objections thereto, was referred to the Committee on
Rules & Calendar.



Honorable George Firestone July 10, 1986
Secretary of State



Dear Mr. Secretary:
By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under the
provisions of Article III, Section 8 of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, I hereby withhold my approval of and transmit to you with my
objections Committee Substitute for House Bill 1166, enacted by the
Ninth Legislature of Florida under the Florida Constitution, 1968
Revision, during the Regular Session of 1986, and entitled:
An act relating to respiratory care: amending s. 468.354, F.S.;
modifying procedure for filling vacancies on the Advisory Council on
Respiratory Care; amending s. 468.357, F.S.; providing that examina-
tions for certification as a respiratory therapy technician shall be
offered in a language other than English upon request for a certain
period; providing that such examinations shall be offered at least four
times a year for a certain period; grandfathering certain persons;
providing a continuing education requirement; extending the examina-
tion deadline for certain persons; amending s. 468.368, F.S.; providing
an exemption for certain persons; providing an effective date.
Committee Substitute for House Bill 1166 provides an exemption
from the licensure examination for certain respiratory care therapists
and technicians who were employed in this state prior to October 1,
1984, the effective date of legislation mandating the examination and
licensure of respiratory care practitioners. In lieu of the examination,
these individuals would be required to submit proof of two years of
performance of respiratory care services, as documented by a physician
who has supervised them or otherwise has direct knowledge of such
services.
I am concerned about the impact of grandfatheringg" for licensure
certain respiratory care practitioners who have not clearly demon-
strated a minimum level of competency to perform the duties
associated with respiratory care. The state has a responsibility to
utilize its regulatory powers to protect the public from significant
harm or damage. This responsibility is heightened when proper
regulation of health care practitioners is at issue. The state's failure to
ensure competence among health care practitioners can result in
serious medical problems or death among members of the public who
have placed their trust and faith in these professionals.
Respiratory care practitioners are called upon to operate increasing-
ly sophisticated life-support equipment. In recognition of the advance-
ments in medical technology associated with respiratory therapy, the
1984 Legislature enacted the Respiratory Care Act to provide for the
licensure of respiratory care practitioners. That act includes a
statement of purpose which reads in part as follows:
Because it is difficult for the public to make informed choices related
to respiratory care services and since the consequences of wrong
choices can seriously endanger public health and safety, it is the intent
of the Legislature to prohibit the delivery of respiratory care services
by persons who are determined to possess less than minimum
competencies or who otherwise present a danger to the public. (Section
468.351 (1) (b), Florida Statutes).
The examination required by the 1984 act is designed to test
minimum competencies required of respiratory care therapists and




technicians. To permit a select group of respiratory care practitioners
to bypass the examination process could seriously jeopardize the level
of respiratory care provided to the people of Florida.
For the above reasons, I am withholding my approval of Committee
Substitute for House Bill 1166, Regular Session of the Legislature,
commencing on April 8, 1986, and do hereby veto the same.
Sincerely,
BOB GRAHAM
Governor
-and the above vetoed bill (1986 Regular Session), together with
the Governor's objections thereto, was referred to the Committee on
Rules & Calendar.

Speaker, House of Representatives


Dear Mr. Speaker:
In compliance with the provisions of Article III, Section 8(b), of the
State Constitution, I am transmitting to you for consideration of the
House the following bill, 1986 Regular Session, with the Governor's
objections attached thereto:
House Bill No. 1380 (Chapter 86-167, Laws of Florida).
We understand that the original law will be returned to this office
following any legislative action which may be taken on the vetoed
portions.
Sincerely,
GEORGE FIRESTONE
Secretary of State




Honorable George Firestone June 30, 1986
Secretary of State



Dear Mr. Secretary:
By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under the
provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, I do hereby withhold my approval of portions of House Bill
1380, enacted by the Ninth Legislature of Florida under the Florida
Constitution, 1968 Revision, during the Regular Session of 1986, and
entitled:
"An act making appropriations; providing moneys for the annual
period beginning July 1, 1986, and ending June 30, 1987, to pay
salaries, other expenses, capital outlay-buildings, and other improve-
ments, and for other specified purposes of the various agencies of State
government; providing an effective date."
I have reviewed House Bill 1380, the General Appropriations Act,
and find it to be commendable in its efforts to direct revenues into
sound investments for the people of Florida. Most of the fiscal priorities
for state government in 1986-87 have been met. The Legislature has
evidenced a commitment to the goals and policy directions articulated
in the State Comprehensive Plan adopted by the 1985 Legislature.
I support the Legislature's appropriations decisions and applaud its
dedication to priorities in which we have made substantial progress in
this budget-particularly in education, law enforcement, the environ-
ment, and human services.
There are, nevertheless, items which I feel are inappropriate or not
in keeping with state priorities. These items, however, are a small
percentage of the total budget and are delineated in this veto message.

EDUCATION
An area in which the Legislature served the public especially well is
higher education. The State Comprehensive Plan stresses equity in
access, a system of recognized national prominence and the mutually
beneficial partnership of higher education and business community
goals. The Legislature has been responsive to that pragmatic vision.
The budget's provision of higher salaries for university faculty will
enable Florida to attract and retain the best professors. Funding for
expansion of quality curricula and the maintenance of our large














February 4, 1987 JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES 5



investment in facilities will give higher education in Florida a solid
foundation.
Community colleges also received enhanced funding of over a 10%
increase. As a result, the state will be able to increase the quality of
instruction and better equalize educational opportunities throughout
our 28 community colleges.
Subject to actions of other states, we are optimistic that Florida will
meet its goal of reaching the upper quartile in faculty salaries in our
universities and community colleges.
For our public schools, the State Plan proposes to upgrade curricu-
lum, pay teachers more competitive salaries, lower dropout rates and
increase student performance ratings. Consistent with those goals, the
Legislature budgeted almost $461 million in additional funds for
1986-87, which is an increase of approximately 12 percent.
As a result of the increased funding for public schools, Florida
expects to move to the rank of 13th in the nation for total per pupil
revenues. We are proud of this progress towards reaching the upper
quartile of the states in the nation.
This budget makes sufficient funds available to Florida's school
districts so they can provide higher teacher salaries to allow Florida to
become more competitive. Better salaries will enable the state to
attract and hire the 80,000 new teachers our students will need over
the next ten years. These salary increases, coupled with the strong
incentive of the career ladder program for teachers, will yield
significant dividends to the citizens of our state.
Still, I am concerned about severe limitations in Public Education
Capital Outlay (PECO) funds for public schools.
These unmet needs will impede our ability to provide the classrooms
needed for the anticipated 59,000 new students in grades K-12 next
fall. I urge the Legislature in the future to devote increased
percentages of PECO dollars to public schools, because this is the
fastest growing segment of our student population. The consequences
of not providing for this growth will likely be either higher local
property taxes or a return to double sessions or other undesirable
situations which could degrade the quality of public school education.
In this veto message, I have struck PECO projects that were not
evaluated nor recognized by the State Board of Community Colleges or
Board of Regents as priority areas of concern as well as those not
properly reviewed by the State Department of Education pursuant to
the procedures established by law. These vetoed funds, amounting to
almost $14,500,000, could have originally been placed more effectively
into public school (K-12) support. Vetoed projects will have the
opportunity in the coming years to seek priority status with the Board
of Regents, the State Board of Community Colleges or the Department
of Education.
LAW ENFORCEMENT
The 1986 Legislature also receives high marks in the area of law
enforcement. The State Plan clearly articulates strategies to lower our
crime rate. We have demonstrated a willingness to commit the
resources to make our state a safe one. Many of our crime problems
come from outside our own borders, but they affect us in our
communities and in our homes.
A total of $9,890,000 has been earmarked for more state attorneys,
public defenders, and judges to respond to additional arrests occurring
now and expected as our state grows. The Florida corrections program
was funded to better respond to overcrowding conditions and prison
health concerns requiring action. Despite this progress, more will need
to be done to assure that our prison system is an equal partner in
balance with other elements of the criminal justice system.
A new crime control bureau budgeted for the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement will assist in fugitive apprehension and respond to
potential or actual terrorist activity in our state. The Legislature also
funded our recommendation to purchase advanced technology for
fingerprint identification, which will assist Florida's law enforcement
community to speed-up the apprehension of suspects or lawbreakers.



Additional state troopers were funded to help Florida intercept
drunk drivers and save lives on our state highways.











ENVIRONMENT
Our ability to guide responsibly Florida's growth throughout the
next decade was enhanced as a result of this year's increase in funding
for growth management activities. A total of $9 million has been
appropriated to provide local governments the financial resources
necessary to ensure that their local government comprehensive plans
are developed within the guidelines set forth in the State Comprehen-
sive Plan.
The 1986 Legislature reaffirmed the commitment in the State
Comprehensive Plan to ensure the protection and acquisition of unique
natural habitats and ecological systems. Funding was provided to
allow acquisition of environmentally sensitive lands in the Florida
Keys, and to ensure Monroe County the financial resources necessary
to enable the county to implement a land use plan that will better
protect the fragile ecosystem of the Florida Keys.
Two major state land acquisition programs fared well during the
1986 legislative session. An additional $75 million in bonds for the
Save Our Coasts land acquisition program were authorized this year.
The CARL program, which provides for the purchase of environmen-
tally endangered lands was further expanded. This will enable us to
accelerate the Save Our Everglades initiative.
Protection of our public water supply was addressed by the 1986
Legislature. Passage of legislation designed to identify and clean-up
leaking underground storage tanks will better ensure the safety of our
drinking water. Additional positions provided to the Department of
Environmental Regulation will greatly assist in the enforcement of the
laws that protect our public water supply.
HUMAN SERVICES
The State Plan also delineates significant policies to reduce Florida's
infant mortality rate, prevent disabling diseases in children, detect
and deter child abuse and preserve the dignity and independence of our
older citizens. The Plan's emphasis on prevention places Florida
squarely in the forefront with progressive, fiscally-prudent states
dealing with human services.
Consistent with the State Plan, there are some notable achievements
in human services funding for 1986-87.
Our achievements include a 1986-87 budget commitment to reduce
Florida's infant mortality rate to below the national average. Florida's
new budget also provides for screening for deadly childhood diseases
and disabling conditions. The Legislature also funded an almost 40%
increase in aging programs. Our innovative Community and Home
Care for the Elderly programs received an increase in funding
sufficient to allow over 7,300 more older Floridians to avoid institu-
tionalization and remain in their own homes or in community-based
living programs, which is more independent and far less expensive
than subsidized care in nursing homes. The Legislature also provided
funds for those disadvantaged older citizens who need medical care.
Even with these commitments this budget fell short of the invest-
ment Florida needs to make to those children, elderly and disabled
citizens who require short-term assistance to gain or regain self-suffi-
ciency. A continued commitment to prevention and self-sufficiency
should be demonstrated by future Legislatures. Judicious investments
in human services both protect and enhance the lives of our citizens,
and save taxpayer dollars in the future.
I am pleased that Florida is taking a leadership position in bridging
its planning and budgeting actions. Without a plan, we could easily
adopt too narrow a view of our challenges and opportunities. We are
the fastest growing of all large states. We have the most to gain from
prudent investment. We have the productivity, the prosperity and the
wellbeing of all Floridians to ensure. We have made responsible
choices. This Appropriations Bill signals a state moving in the right
direction.
Despite the overall positive impact of the budget, I have a number of
concerns that are reflected in the vetoes below.
If we are to exercise fiscal prudence and make wise investments,
appropriations must be targeted to projects developed in open debate,
be able to withstand careful scrutiny, and demonstrate a sense of









6 JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES February 4, 1987


priorities among Florida's growing needs. It is a mark of progress that
the Legislature and the executive branch are developing procedures to
meet those standards through such measures as House Bill 446. This
measure, passed by the 1986 Legislature, is designed to prioritize
funds for recreational grants in a systematic manner. Some of those
grants are contained in specific appropriation 1535F. This lump sum
appropriation does not specify which projects should be funded by the
Department of Natural Resources. However, HB 446 provides the
department with a publicly competitive process to select projects for
funding under this appropriation. Were it not for this bill, the funds
contained in specific appropriation 1535F would have been subject to
my veto.
The items I am vetoing follow:
Specific Appropriation 261 on page 33 appropriates $25,631,222 in
1986-87 from the Community Development Block Grant Trust Fund
for grants to small local governments for community development
activities. Proviso language following Specific Appropriation 261
specifies that $2.7 million of the funds shall be used to fund additional
competitive projects in the fiscal year 1985-86 housing category. The
Small Cities Community Development Block Grant program provides
funding to small cities and counties on a competitive basis, based on
community need and the merits of the program proposal. Funding
additional communities with the proviso referenced $2.7 million
without going through a competitive process is contrary to the program
established by law and agency rule. Therefore, that portion of the
proviso language following Specific Appropriation 261 on page 33,
which reads as follows, is hereby vetoed:
"$2.7 million of the funds in Specific Appropriation 261 shall be
used to fund additional competitive projects in the fiscal year
1985-86 housing category and the remaining". . .
Specific Appropriation 365A on page 52 appropriates $75,000 from
the General Revenue Fund for the University of Miami Firefighters
Health Resource Center. The need for this program has not been
identified by the Postsecondary Education Planning Commission for
inclusion in the State Master Plan for Postsecondary Education
pursuant to 240.147(2), F.S. As a consequence, the program has not
been recommended to the State Board of Education as a contract
program with an independent institution as required by 240.147(4),
F.S. Further, the University of Miami did not request this particular
program as part of their initiative for state generated support to meet
postsecondary education needs in the State of Florida. Therefore,
Specific Appropriation 365A on page 52, which reads as follows, is
hereby vetoed:
"365A Special Categories
University of Miami-Firefighters Health
Resource Center
From General Revenue Fund $75,000"
Specific Appropriation 524B on page 95 appropriates $1,000,000
from the General Revenue Fund for the establishment of a four year
liberal arts undergraduate program for approximately 500 students to
be operated by Florida Atlantic University in Broward County. This
program was not requested by the Board of Regents or reviewed and
approved by the Board of Regents pursuant to the requirements of
Sections 240.209(3)(b) and 240.2095 of the Florida Statutes and has not
been included in the systemwide master plan. The program was not
included in the plan for a Comprehensive University Presence
approved by the Board of Regents on January 11, 1985. In addition,
proviso language associated with Specific Appropriation 524B requires
Florida Atlantic University to develop a plan to implement the
program over a five year period and to submit this plan to the Senate
President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives not later
than January 1, 1987. This proviso circumvents the authority of the
Board of Regents to review and approve new programs.
The need for an appropriate range of university programs in
Broward County may exist, but information is lacking which justifies
this initiative and which clearly describes the full extent of the
program to be implemented through this appropriation. Hence, I am
asking the Board of Regents and the Postsecondary Education
Planning Commission (PEPC) to review the Southeast Florida Plan







and the Comprehensive University Presence Plan. Specifically includ-
ed in these plans should be a study of the need for providing a
four-year presence to the citizens of Broward County. The Board of
Regents and PEPC should submit a report to the Governor and
Legislature not later than March 1, 1987. Therefore, Specific Appro-
priation 524B on page 95 and the associated proviso language on page
101, which reads as follows, is hereby vetoed:
"524B Lump Sum
FAU/Broward County
Positions 26
From General Revenue Fund 1,000,000



"From the funds appropriated in Specific Appropriation 524B, $1
million shall be used to plan the implementation of a four year
liberal arts undergraduate program for approximately 500 stu-
dents which is to be operated by Florida Atlantic University at a
site in Broward County. Funds are provided for the initial
curriculum planning for the program and to begin the recruitment
of faculty. Florida Atlantic University shall develop a plan to
implement this program in an orderly fashion over a five year
period. Such plan shall be submitted to the Senate President and
the Speaker of the House of Representatives not later than
January 1, 1987."
Proviso language following Specific Appropriation 573 on page 112
requires that the Department of Environmental Regulation contract
with the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Florida State
University, and the University of South Florida for the continued
operation of the Environmental Toxicology Data Bank and Research.
Funds were appropriated in Fiscal Year 1985-86 for this purpose.
However, all of the contracts have not been completed nor all funds
released for this project at this time. The remaining funds will be
certified forward at June 30, 1986 and the activities will continue in
FY 1986-87. Therefore, the proviso language following Specific Appro-
priation 573 on page 112, which reads as follows, is hereby vetoed:
"From the funds provided in Specific Appropriation 573 from the
Water Quality Assurance Trust Fund, the Department of En-
vironmental Regulation shall use $256,400 to contract with the
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Florida State Univer-
sity, and the University of South Florida for the continued
operation of the Environmental Toxicology Data Bank and to
conduct environmental toxicology research as outlined in the
report submitted to the Legislature by the Toxicological Coordi-
nating Committee."
Proviso language following Specific Appropriation 576 on page 113
requires that $10,000 be transferred to the Suwannee River Authority
for the Suwannee River Safety Program. This program and others of
the Suwannee River Authority are duplicative of activities of the
Suwannee River Water Management District, the Florida Marine
Patrol, and local government. Therefore, the proviso language follow-
ing Specific Appropriation 576 on page 113, which reads as follows, is
hereby vetoed:
"From the funds provided in Specific Appropriation 576, $10,000
shall be transferred to the Suwannee River Authority for the
Suwannee River Safety Program."
Specific Appropriation 588C on page 116 appropriates $1,000,000 in
1986-87 from the General Revenue Fund for the water restoration of
Old Pass Lagoon. This project was not requested by the Department of
Environmental Regulation and sufficient justification has not been
presented to this office. Therefore, Specific Appropriation 588C on page
116, which reads as follows, is hereby vetoed:
"588C Special Categories
Grants and Aids-Northwest Florida
Water Management District for
Restoration Program
From General Revenue Fund 1,000,000"
Specific Appropriation 1491A on page 216 appropriates $21,250 from
the General Revenue Fund for the Suwannee River Authority. The
Suwannee River Water Management District is currently empowered
to do everything the Suwannee River Authority does relative to










February 4, 1987 JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES 7



activities beneficial to the river. The state will fund $829,268 of the
operating cost of the Suwannee River Water Management District
during 1986-87 and funding this duplicative activity would be
inappropriate. Therefore, Specific Appropriation 1491A on page 216,
which reads as follows, is hereby vetoed:
"1491A Aid to Local Governments
Suwannee River Authority
From General Revenue Fund 21,250"
The third paragraph of proviso language following Specific Appro-
priation 1795 on page 257 appropriates State Transportation (Primary)
Trust Funds in the amount of $500,000 from funds provided for Other
State 100% Road Construction for the reconstruction of State Road 27
(South Krome Avenue) in Homestead. Almost $200,000 of these funds
is for various redevelopment activities along Krome Avenue which are
not appropriately financed with State Transportation Trust Funds. The
remaining $300,000 is to reimburse merchants in the area who will
have their assessments increased in order to pay for additional
drainage work that was not anticipated when plans for expanding a
sidewalk were initially contemplated by the city and the affected
merchants. The additional drainage work is apparently related to the
height of the crown in SR 27 along this portion of Krome Avenue.
Correction of this problem, if legitimately a state responsibility, should
have gone through the established process of project prioritization.
This project does not appear in the department's 5-year work plan.
Placing it in the Appropriations Act circumvents the process and will
cause one or more scheduled projects in the district to be delayed.
Therefore, the third paragraph of the proviso language following
Specific Appropriation 1795 on page 257, which reads as follows, is
hereby vetoed:
"From funds provided in Specific Appropriation 1795, $500,000
shall be used to reconstruct SR 27 (South Krome Avenue) in
Homestead."
Specific Appropriation 1856B on page 266 appropriates $1,600,000 in
1986-87 from the General Revenue Fund for Lakeland Parking
Garage. The Department of General Services did not request this
project, but a 1985-86 appropriation was made for this purpose. No
information has been received to indicate that the previous appropria-
tion is inadequate or that state government parking needs are not
being met in Lakeland. Further support of local public parking needs
would appear to be unwarranted. Therefore, Specific Appropriation
1856B on page 266, which reads as follows, is hereby vetoed:
"1856B Fixed Capital Outlay
Lakeland Parking Garage
From General Revenue Fund $1,600,000"
Specific Appropriation 1872A on page 268 appropriates $200,000 in
1986-87 from the General Revenue Fund for Sunland, Gainesville
Medical Service Center (36 Beds). This project replaces an existing
substandard hospital facility at Sunland-Gainesville. While the con-
tinued use of the existing facility is not advisable, the solution
represented by this project provides for direct replacement of the
existing licensed capacity (36 beds). Other documents conclude that
less than 50% of that capacity is required to serve institutional needs.
Fiscally, a more prudent course of action is to contract with nearby
medical institutions to serve Sunland's needs. Therefore, Specific
Appropriation 1872A on page 268, which reads as follows, is hereby
vetoed:

"1872A Fixed Capital Outlay
Sunland, Gainesville Medical Service
Center (36 Beds)
From General Revenue Fund $200,000"
Proviso Language following Specific Appropriation 1941A on page
282 appropriates $400,000 from the Public Education Capital Outlay
and Debt Service Trust Fund to Gulf Coast Community College for the
planning of a Student Service Center. This project does not appear on
the State Board of Community Colleges' Three-Year Capital Outlay
Project Priority List or on the Gulf Coast Community College request.
Therefore, the proviso language following Specific Appropriation
1941A on page 282, which reads as follows, is hereby vetoed:



"Gulf Coast-Student Services center
(p) 400,000"







Proviso Language following Specific Appropriation 1941B on page
283 appropriates $6,000,000 from the Public Education Capital Outlay
and Debt Service Trust Fund to Florida Atlantic University for new
four-year liberal arts college in Broward County. This project does not
appear on the Board of Regents' Three-Year Capital Outlay Project
Priority List and has not been reviewed by the Postsecondary
Education Planning Commission pursuant to Section 240.147, Florida
Statutes. Therefore, the proviso language of Specific Appropriation
1941B on page 283, which reads as follows, is hereby vetoed:



"FAU-New facilities in Broward County 6,000,000"







"The funds appropriated for Broward County facilities may be
used to acquire land or facilities, to plan facilities, to do sitework,
to construct facilities, provide utilities, and to purchase equipment
for a new four-year liberal arts college of approximately 500
students in total enrollment which is to be operated by Florida
Atlantic University at a site in Broward County, Florida. It is also
intended that at least $9,000,000 be provided in the 1987-88 Fiscal
Year for this project."
Proviso Language following Specific Appropriation 1941B on page
283 appropriates $1,000,000 from the Public Education Capital Outlay
and Debt Service Trust Fund to the Florida State University for
planning, construction of campus lighting and parking. This project
does not appear on the Board of Regents' Three-Year Capital Outlay
Project Priority List. Therefore, the proviso language following Specific

a police station. This project does not appear on the Board of Regents'
Three-Year or Five-Year Capital Outlay Project Priority List. There-
fore, the proviso language following Specific Appropriation 1941B on
page 283, which reads as follows, is hereby vetoed:

Specific Appropriation 1942B on page 285 appropriates $1,002,451
from the Public Education Capital Outlay and Debt Service Trust
Fund for construction and equipment at the Locklin Vo-Tech Center,
Phase II. Section 235.435(3)(a), Florida Statutes, requires the inclusion
of capital outlay full-time equivalent students (FTEs) from those
vocational technical centers under the auspices of district school boards
to be included in the funding computations for district school boards.
The District School Board of Santa Rosa County has already received
funding for those FTEs generated by the Locklin Vocational Technical
Center in Specific Appropriation 1939 on page 281. Also, this project
was not included in the school plant survey. Therefore, Specific
Appropriation 1942B on page 285, which reads as follows, is hereby
vetoed:

man Vo-Tech. Section 235.435(3)(a), Florida Statutes, requires the
inclusion of Capital Outlay FTEs from those Vocational Technical
Centers under the auspices of district school boards to be included in
the funding computations for district school boards. The District School
Board of Pasco County has already received funding for those FTEs
generated by Pasco Marchman Vo-Tech in Specific Appropriation 1939

from the Public Education Capital Outlay and Debt Service Trust
Fund for a Community Education Facility at St. Petersburg Junior
College and for a Clearwater Recreation Complex. This project was not
requested by the Commissioner of Education and does not, at this time,
comply with the community education provisions of Section 235.196,
Florida Statutes. Therefore, Specific Appropriation 1945B and the

Specific Appropriation 1945G on page 288 appropriates $9,000,000
from the Public Education Capital Outlay and Debt Service Trust
Fund for planning and construction for Community Education Facili-
ties-Fine Arts Center-Santa Fe Community College/University of
Florida. Proviso language indicates that the appropriation is for
joint-use facilities. Several of these projects were not requested by the
Commissioner of Education as either community education facilities or
joint-use facilities. In addition, they do not meet the requirements of
Section 235.195 or 235.196, Florida Statutes. Therefore, that portion of
the proviso language following Specific Appropriation 1945G on page
288 and page 289, which reads as follows, is hereby vetoed:
