convened by Proclamation of the Governor and held at the Capitol in the City of Tallahassee in the State of Florida,
on Monday, September 21, 1987.



The House was called to order by the Honorable Jon Mills, Speaker,
at 9:00 a.m.

Prayer

The following prayer was offered by Representative Fran Carlton:
Our most gracious Heavenly Father, thank You for the privilege of
serving in this place. May we always be aware of the trust that we
have been given. We're reminded of those 55 brave men who, 200 years
ago, gave us the Constitution of the United States. They pledged their
lives, all their earthly belongings, and their sacred trust, that we
might enjoy the freedoms that we now all too often take for granted.
Thank You for those men and for the vision they shared for our
Nation.
Oh God, give us a vision for the future of Florida. Unite us in a
oneness of purpose to do only that which is true and right and good for
the people that we serve and for our great state. Take away the
anxiety, the partisan politics, the self interest. May each member of
the House, the Senate, the Governor, the special interests and even the
press catch sight of the vision and unite in the quest to do what is best
for Florida.
Father, You promised in Your Word that if we commit our works to
You that You will direct us. We commit ourselves and this special
session to You and humbly ask that You give us Your wisdom, Your
knowledge and Your blessing. Amen.
The following proclamation was read:

This legislation was directed to the question of the transmission of
the AIDS virus by this hair removal process. At this time, we have no
knowledge of any documented cases of the transmission of the AIDS
virus by this technique. However, under Chapter 381 F.S. the Florida
Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services has the authority to
promulgate rules to address the concerns of sanitation in the
electrolysis process. I have requested that Secretary Coler begin to
study this question and provide and propose any needed rules. By
addressing this issue by way of an existing procedure yet another layer
of state bureaucracy will be avoided.
For the above reasons, I am withholding my approval of Committee
Substitute for House Bill 204, Regular Session of the Legislature,
commencing April 7, 1987, and do hereby veto thb same.

Dear Mr. Secretary:
By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under the
provisions of Article III, Section 8 of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, I hereby withhold my approval of and transmit to you with my
objections House Bill 443, enacted by the Tenth Legislature of Florida
under the Florida Constitution, 1968 Revision, during the Regular
Session of 1987, and entitled:
An act relating to the arts; amending s. 265.285, F.S.; changing
the prohibition of eligibility of appointed Florida Arts Council
members for reappointment to apply after serving two terms
instead of one; providing an exception to the Fine Arts
Endowment Program; providing for a reallocation of moneys in
the Fine Arts Endowment Trust Fund; providing for the creation
of county aviation authorities; providing definitions; providing
for a governing board and the membership thereof; prescribing

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



the rights, duties, and authority and the method of budgetary
approval of said aviation authority; authorizing said authority
to construct, acquire, establish, improve, extend, enlarge, recon-
struct, equip, maintain, repair, and operate, within the territori-
al boundaries of the county, projects as defined in said act,
consisting of airport or aviation facilities and related facilities of
all kinds for land and sea planes, or any combination of two or
more such projects; providing for the transfer to the jurisdiction,
control, and supervision of the authority of all existing projects
owned or controlled by the county; prescribing the powers and
duties of the county commission of said county and of said
authority; authorizing the issuance by said authority of revenue
bonds of the authority, payable solely from revenues, to pay all
or part of the cost of the acquisition, construction, extension, or
enlargement of a project or projects; authorizing the issuance of
revenue refunding bonds of said authority and the issuance of a
single issue of revenue bonds of said authority for the purposes
of paying all or part of the cost of acquiring, constructing,
extending, or enlarging a project or projects and for the purpose
of refunding any revenue bonds or revenue certificates which
shall then be outstanding and shall be payable from the
revenues of any existing project or projects; providing that no
general debt of the county shall be incurred in the exercise of
any of the powers granted by this act; authorizing said authority
to fix, regulate, and collect rates and charges for the services
and facilities furnished by any project under its control, and to
pledge the revenue of any such project to the payment of such
bonds; providing for the execution of a trust agreement or other
similar agreements or arrangements securing the payment of
such bonds without mortgaging or encumbering any such
project; authorizing expenditures of funds by the county;
providing for proposed changes to county comprehensive plan;
providing for trust funds; providing for power of eminent
domain; providing for effect of county ordinances and application
of act to other laws; providing for execution of contracts, leases,
and other legal instruments; providing for cooperation between
municipalities, county, and authority; prohibiting conflict of
interest; providing severability, providing an effective date.

House Bill 443 embraces two distinct subjects having no natural and
logical connection. Sections 1, 2 and 3 of the bill concern the Florida
Arts Council and the Fine Arts Endowment Trust Fund, and those
sections amend sections 265.285, 265.603 and 265.605, Florida Stat-
utes. Sections 4 through 25 of House Bill 443 provides for the creation
of county aviation authorities. I find there is no factual or logical
connection between the distinct subjects of the Florida Council on Arts
and county aviation authorities. Sections 4 through 25 of the act are
not even remotely germane to the purposes or objects found in the
remainder of the act. There is nothing in common between the two
subjects. The subject of Sections 1, 2 and 3 of the Act has no cogent
relationship with the subject of sections 4 through 25 of the Act, and
the object of Sections 1 through 3 is separate and disassociated from
the object of Section 4 through 25. Bunnell v. State, 453 So.2d 808 (Fla.
1984); State ex rel Landis v. Thompson, 120 Fla. 860, 163 So. 270
(1935).

The purpose of the "one subject" requirement found in the first
clause of Article III, Section 6 was best explained by the Supreme
Court of Florida in Colonial Inv. Co. v. Nolan, 131 So. 178 (Fla. 1930)
as follows:

The object of this constitutional provision, which in substance
has been placed in practically all of the constitutions of the
several states, was to prevent hodgepodge, logrolling, and
omnibus legislation. It had become quite common for legislative
bodies to embrace in the same bill incongruous matters having
no relation to each other, or to the subject specified in the title,
by which means measures were often adopted without attracting
attention. And frequently such distinct subjects, affecting di-
verse interests, were combined in order to unite the members
who favored either in support of all. (at 179)

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 and transmit to you with
my objections House Bill 460 enacted by the Tenth Legislature of
Florida under the Florida Constitution, 1968 Revision, during the
Regular Session of 1987, and entitled:
An act relating to judicial circuits; amending s. 26.021, F.S.,
providing that at least one judge in the tenth judicial circuit
shall reside in Highlands County; providing applicability;
providing an effective date.
House Bill 460, amends Section 26.021, Florida Statutes, requiring
that at least one judge of the tenth judicial circuit reside in Highlands
County. This residency requirement is above and beyond that set forth
in Article V, Section 8 of the Florida Constitution.
Article V, Section 8 of the Florida Constitution requires only that a
circuit judge reside in the territorial jurisdiction of his court. House
Bill 460 would impose the additional qualification that at least one
judge of the tenth judicial circuit reside in Highlands County, thereby
modifying the Florida Constitution by legislative enactment.
In State v. Thomas, a case relating to the residency requirement of
school board members, the Florida Supreme Court stated that statutes
imposing additional qualifications for office are unconstitutional where
the basic document of the constitution itself has already undertaken to
set forth those requirements. State v. Thomas, 293 So.2d 40, 42 (Fla.
1974). Article V, Section 8 of the Florida Constitution has already set
forth the residency requirements for judges.
For the above reasons, I am withholding my approval of House Bill
460, Regular Session of the Legislature, commencing April 7, 1987,
and do hereby veto the same.
Sincerely,
BOB MARTINEZ
Governor
-and the above vetoed bill (1987 Regular Session), together with
the Governor's objections thereto was referred to the Committee on

Honorable George Firestone

Dear Mr. Secretary:



This constitutional provision did not appear in the first three By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under the
constitutions of Florida, and during those years the practice of provisions of Article III, Section 8 of the Constitution of the State of



OF REPRESENTATIVES 5

"logrolling" occurred. The Supreme Court of Florida defined "logroll-
ing" as:
A practice under which the legislature could include in a single
act matters important to the people and desired by the Governor
and other matters opposed by the Governor or harmful to the
welfare of the State, with the result that in order to obtain the
constructive or desired matter the Governor had to accept the
unwanted portion.
Green v. Rawls, 122 So.2d 10, 13 (Fla. 1960).
It is obvious that House Bill 443 violates the single subject
requirement of Article III, Section 6 of the Florida Constitution.
For the above reason, I am withholding approval of House Bill 443,
Regular Session of the Legislature, commencing April 7, 1987, and do
hereby veto the same.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Florida, I do hereby withhold my approval of and transmit to you with
my objections House Bill 630 enacted by the Tenth Legislature of
Florida under the Florida Constitution, 1968 Revision, during the
Regular Session of 1987, and entitled:
An act relating to Collier County; providing specified authority
with respect to the duties of the property appraiser; providing an
effective date.
House Bill 630 is a local bill creating additional duties of the
property appraiser of Collier County. These duties include the securing
of patents, copyrights and trademarks on his work products, and the
selling or leasing of such work products.
Article III, Section 11(a)(1) of the Florida Constitution prohibits
special laws pertaining to the duties of officers except officers of
municipalities, chartered counties, special districts or local governmen-
tal agencies. The property appraiser of Collier County is a constitu-
tional officer who does not fall within the exceptions to the prohibition.
Thus, a special law pertaining to the duties of the Collier County
property appraiser violates Article III, Section 11(a)(1) of the Florida
Constitution. Furthermore, allowing the property appraiser to copy-
right a computer program developed by him in the course of his work
would violate Florida's Public Records Law, Chapter 119, Florida
Statutes, unless such program could be classified as "sensitive
agency-produced data processing software." See, section 119.07(3)(r),
Florida Statutes.
For the above reasons, I am withholding my approval of House Bill
630, Regular Session of the Legislature, commencing April 7, 1987,
and do hereby veto the same.
Sincerely,
BOB MARTINEZ
Governor
-and the above vetoed bill (1987 Regular Session), together with
the Governor's objections thereto was referred to the Committee on

Honorable George Firestone July 1, 1987
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 and transmit to you with
my objections House Bill 679 enacted by the Tenth Legislature of
Florida under the Florida Constitution, 1968 Revision, during the
Regular Session of 1987, and entitled:
An act relating to Hillsborough County; relating to the Civil
Service Act; amending section 4 of chapter 85-424, Laws of
Florida, to delete reference to the Hillsborough County school
board and to provide that said school board by interlocal
agreement with the civil service board may participate in the
civil service system; amending sections 6 and 13 of chapter
85-424, Laws of Florida, and section 14 of chapter 85-424, Laws
of Florida, as amended, to delete references to said school board;
amending section 15 of chapter 85-424, Laws of Florida, to
delete reference to said school board and to reduce the member-
ship of the review committee; repealing chapter 85-423, Laws of
Florida, relating to definitions and classes of certain school
board employees; providing an effective date.
House Bill 679 is intended to amend Chapter 85-424, Laws of
Florida, in order to allow the Hillsborough County School Board to
participate in the civil service system. In addition, the bill would
repeal Chapter 85-423, Laws of Florida, which defines specific classes
of school board employees.
While I take no exception to the intent underlying this bill, I am
concerned that the bill contains a technical flaw which would render a
result not intended by the Legislature. Specifically, as it now reads,
the bill would amend Chapter 84-424, Laws of Florida. Chapter 84-424,
Laws of Florida, has no relevance to the subject matter addressed in



the bill and it is apparent that the Legislature intended to amend
Chapter 85-424, Laws of Florida. In light of this defect, I am



withholding approval of House Bill 679, Regular Session of the
Legislature, commencing on April 7, 1987, and do hereby veto the
same.

June 25, 1987



Honorable George Firestone
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 and transmit to you with
my objections House Bill 1336 enacted by the Tenth Legislature of
Florida under the Florida Constitution, 1968 Revision, during the
Regular Session of 1987, and entitled:
An act relating to public meetings and records; amending
s. 286.011, F.S.; exempting certain meetings of governmental
agencies from the requirement that they be open to the public;
establishing criteria for such meetings; providing an effective date.
House Bill 1336 would amend Section 286.011, Florida Statutes, the
"Sunshine Law," to provide an exception to the general requirement
that the public be afforded access to meetings where governmental
bodies conduct official business. Specifically, the bill would allow
government officials to meet in private with their attorney in order to
discuss pending litigation. The bill would impose a requirement that
the conversations be recorded and later made public after the litigation
is resolved.
I am deeply concerned that this bill will have a negative effect on
government in Florida through its alteration of the Sunshine Law. When
it enacted the Sunshine Law several years ago, the Legislature correctly
perceived a need for Florida government to instill in the people a new
confidence in the manner in which the public business is conducted. The
years following the enactment of the law bear out the wisdom of the
Legislature in this regard, for public trust in Florida government has
steadily grown in those years. It is, therefore, a very heavy burden that
any bill carries which would restrict the scope of the Sunshine Law and
put in jeopardy public confidence in its governing institutions.
While the purpose of House Bill 1336 is, in isolation, relatively
innocuous, it undeniably weakens the purifying effect of the Sunshine
Law. In my view, it would be imprudent to allow the erosion of the
Sunshine Law to begin in this manner, and thus risk the loss of the
public trust, after Florida government has paid for that trust through
years spent acquiring the discipline necessary to adhere to the strictures
of the law. In short, I believe that the business of the state should remain
the business of its citizens and be subject to their scrutiny as the law now
provides. For the foregoing reasons, I am withholding approval of House
Bill 1336, Regular Session of the Legislature, commencing on April 7,
1987, and do hereby veto the same.
Sincerely,
BOB MARTINEZ

Communications

The Honorable Jon Mills September 24, 1987
Speaker of the House
The Honorable John Vogt
President of the Senate
Gentlemen:
This is in response to your joint request for my opinion on
substantially the following question:
Does a proposed enactment which would repeal Ch. 87-6, Laws
of Florida, as amended by Chs. 87-72 and 87-101, Laws of
Florida, but not provide for revenues to replace those lost by
repealing this legislation or provide for amendment of Ch. 87-98,
Laws of Florida, violate s. 1, Art. VII, State Const.?
The legislation to which you refer has imposed a general tax on the
sale and use of services in Florida. Your letter relates that the passage
of this measure was accomplished to raise sufficient revenue to defray
the expenses of the state for fiscal year 1987-1988, which commenced
on July 1, 1987. The Appropriations Act (Ch. 87-98, Laws of Florida)
was passed in anticipation of receiving revenue from the general sales
and use tax contained in Ch. 87-6, Laws of Florida, as amended supra.
As you have noted, a repeal of Ch. 87-6, without provision for
additional revenues or amendment to the Appropriations Act, will
result in a budget deficit for the current fiscal year.
Section 1, Art. VII, State Const., makes provision for the levy of
certain taxes, preempts certain forms of taxation to the state, requires
that money be paid from the State Treasury only pursuant to a lawful
appropriation by the Legislature and provides in subsection (d) that
provisionin shall be made by law for raising sufficient revenue to
defray the expenses of the state for each fiscal period."
The constitutional provisions contained in s. 1, Art. VII, State
Const., charge the Legislature with a duty not only to raise revenue by
taxation but to raise sufficient revenues to defray those expenses the
state may lawfully incur during each fiscal period. The Legislature is
further required to ensure that state expenses shall not exceed the
revenue raised.
The current language of s. 1(d), Art. VII, State Const., is taken from
s. 2, Art. IX, State Const. 1885, which provided that: "The Legislature
shall provide for raising revenue sufficient to defray the expenses of
the State ... for each fiscal year, and also a sufficient sum to pay the
principal and interest of the existing indebtedness of the State ."
While my research has revealed no judicial construction of the present

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



constitutional provision which is relevant to this determination,
decisions construing predecessor provisions of the Constitution having
the same import as current provisions are sources or authority for the
construction of the successor provisions.'
In State ex rel. Kurz v. Lee, 163 So. 859 (Fla. 1935), The Supreme
Court of Florida considered a mandamus action against the Comptrol-
ler by a state employee who asserted a claim to his contractual salary
payment. This payment was to be made from the General Revenue
Fund in conformity with the 1935 General Appropriations Act. It
appeared that, after having enacted a general appropriations bill and
providing sufficient revenues to meet those expenses, the Legislature
had made subsequent, additional appropriations which would have
produced a deficit in the general appropriations statute. The Comptrol-
ler's defense in not making payment of this obligation was that it was
his duty to withhold the salary payment until the Comptroller could
determine how to proportionately diminish the compensation on
account of insufficient funds in the State Treasury to pay both the
original appropriation and those made subsequently. The Court
determined that the Comptroller's position was untenable as it
contemplated unconstitutional action by the Legislature in not meet-
ing its "mandatory constitutional duty" to provide sufficient revenues
to meet state expenses pursuant to the predecessor provision to s. 1,
Art. VII, State Const. As the Court stated:
Presumably, the Legislature does not undertake to make an
appropriation of any funds not actually or potentially in hand.
This is so since the making of an appropriation without having
provided revenues from some source to meet it, or without any
right to anticipate the accrual otherwise of funds in the treasury
to enable the appropriation to be discharged by an actual
disbursement of funds when it is due to be paid, would be the
creation of an illegal state debt which would not constitute a
current expense of the state inasmuch as it would have to be
provided for by subsequent revenue legislation.2
Further, the Court stated that "the Constitution contemplates that
state expenses shall not exceed the revenues provided by law to be
raised for each fiscal year to defray the current expenses of the state
for the fiscal period, and it is mandatory that [s. 1, Art. VII] of the
Constitution shall be observed by ... the Legislature."3
In the absence of judicial precedent, the Court in State v. Lee, supra,
relied on contemporaneous construction of the constitutional provisions
"by affected officials of the state and the responsible departments of
the state government charged with the duty of interpreting and
observing [them] .."4 and stated that:
[B]y a contemporaneous and consistently adhered to construc-
tion by all departments of the state government, legislative,
executive, and judicial, [the provisions of s. 1, Art. VII, State
Const.] evidence] a definite state fiscal policy and purpose, and
have been regarded as imposing an inescapable constitutional
duty on each regular session of the Florida Legislature to
ascertain and set forth in a general appropriation bill what are
the current expenses of the state required to sustain its officials
and agencies ... and to make in such general appropriation
measure adequate appropriations of money to enable the state's
laws to be executed. "5
Contemporaneous construction of s. 1, Art. VII, State Const., by the
legislative and executive branches of state government reveals that
those branches have interpreted this section to impose a duty to
balance state revenues and expenditures.
As the Governor noted in his letter requesting the opinion of the
Justices of the Florida Supreme Court on the constitutionality of Ch.
87-6, Laws of Florida, "[i]n furtherance of [s. l(d), Art. VII and s. l(a),
Art. IV, State Const.], I am required to submit to the Legislature a
recommended budget which contains sufficient revenues to meet my
recommended appropriations and to amend my recommendations if
it comes to my attention that revenue sources are insufficient to fund
the appropriations. "6
With regard to contemporaneous construction of this constitutional



mandate by the legislative branch of state government, I note that the
Legislature, in Special Session in December, 1984, passed Senate Bill



1A (Ch. 84-549, Laws of Florida) repealing the unitary tax but
replacing the revenues lost thereby.
It is my opinion that s. 1, Art. VII, State Const., contains a two-fold
mandate to the Legislature: to provide for the raising of sufficient
revenues to meet the lawful expenses of the state and to spend within
the limits of that revenue which is raised. Thus, the Legislature would
not be fulfilling its constitutional mandate if it were to repeal Ch. 87-6,
Laws of Florida, as amended by Chs. 87-72 and 87-101, Laws of
Florida, without providing for replacement revenues or readdressing
the 1987 Appropriations Act to reduce appropriations to meet a
reduction in anticipated revenues.
Sincerely,
Robert A. Butterworth
Attorney General

notice requirement may be waived by the agency head or the hearing
officer without the consent of the parties. The notice shall include:
a. A statement of the time, place, and nature of the hearing.
b. A statement of the legal authority and jurisdiction under which
the hearing is to be held.
c. A reference to the particular sections of the statutes and rules
involved.
d. Except for any hearing before an unemployment compensation
appeals referee, a short and plain statement of the matters asserted by
the agency and by all parties of record at the time notice is given. If
the agency or any party is unable to state the matters in sufficient
detail at the time initial notice is given, the notice may be limited to a
statement of the issues involved, and thereafter, upon timely written
application, a more definite and detailed statement shall be furnished
not less than 3 days prior to the date set for the hearing.
3. Except for any proceeding conducted as prescribed in s. 120.54(4),
or s. 120.56, or 120.575(f)(b), a petition or request for a hearing
under this section shall be filed with the agency. If the agency elects to
request a hearing officer from the division, it shall so notify the
division within 15 days of receipt of the petition or request. When the
Florida Land and Water Adjudicatory Commission receives a notice of
appeal pursuant to s. 380.07, the commission shall notify the division
within 60 days of receipt of the notice of appeal if the commission
elects to request the assignment of a hearing officer. On the request of
any agency, the division shall assign a hearing officer with due regard
to the expertise required for the particular matter. The referring
agency shall take no further action with respect to the formal
proceeding, except as a party litigant, as long as the division has
jurisdiction over the formal proceeding. Any party may request the
disqualification of the hearing officer by filing an affidavit with the



division prior to the taking of evidence at a hearing, stating the
grounds with particularity.

4. All parties shall have an opportunity to respond, to present
evidence and argument on all issues involved, to conduct cross-exami-
nation and submit rebuttal evidence, to submit proposed findings of
facts and orders, to file exceptions to any order or hearing officer's
recommended order, and to be represented by counsel. When appropri-
ate, the general public may be given an opportunity to present oral or
written communications. If the agency proposes to consider such
material, then all parties shall be given an opportunity to cross-exam-
ine or challenge or rebut it.
5. All pleadings, motions, or other papers filed in the proceeding
must be signed by a party, the party's attorney, or the party's qualified
representative. The signature of a party, a party's attorney, or a
party's qualified representative constitutes a certificate that he has
read the pleading, motion, or other paper and that, to the best of his
knowledge, information, and belief formed after reasonable inquiry, it
is not interposed for any improper purposes, such as to harass or to
cause unnecessary delay or for frivolous purpose or needless increase
in the cost of litigation. If a pleading, motion, or other paper is signed
in violation of these requirements, the hearing officer, upon motion or
his own initiative, shall impose upon the person who signed it, a
represented party, or both, an appropriate sanction, which may include
an order to pay the other party or parties the amount of reasonable
expenses incurred because of the filing of the pleading, motion, or
other paper, including a reasonable attorney's fee.
6. The record in a case governed by this subsection shall consist only
of:
a. All notices, pleadings, motions, and intermediate rulings;
b. Evidence received or considered;
c. A statement of matters officially recognized;
d. Questions and proffers of proof and objections and rulings thereon;
e. Proposed findings and exceptions;
f. Any decision, opinion, proposed or recommended order, or report
by the officer presiding at the hearing;
g. All staff memoranda or data submitted to the hearing officer
during the hearing or prior to its disposition, after notice of the
submission to all parties, except communications by advisory staff as
permitted under s. 120.66(1), if such communications are public
records;
h. All matters placed on the record after an ex parte communication
pursuant to s. 120.66(2); and
i. The official transcript.
7. The agency shall accurately and completely preserve all testimony
in the proceeding, and, on the request of any party, it shall make a full
or partial transcript available at no more than actual cost. In any
proceeding before a hearing officer initiated by a consumptive use
permit applicant pursuant to subparagraph 14., the applicant shall
bear the cost of accurately and completely preserving all testimony and
providing full or partial transcripts to the water management district.
At the request of any other party, full or partial transcripts shall be
provided at no more than cost.
8. Findings of fact shall be based exclusively on the evidence of
record and on matters officially recognized.
9. Except as provided in subparagraph 12., the hearing officer shall
complete and submit to the agency and all parties a recommended
order consisting of his findings of fact, conclusions of law, interpreta-
tion of administrative rules, and recommended penalty, if applicable,
and any other information required by law or agency rule to be
contained in the final order. The agency shall allow each party at least
10 days in which to submit written exceptions to the recommended
order.
10. The agency may adopt the recommended order as the final order
of the agency. The agency in its final order may reject or modify the
conclusions of law and interpretation of administrative rules in the
recommended order, but may not reject or modify the findings of fact



unless the agency first determines from a review of the complete
record, and states with particularity in the order, that the findings of



September 30, 1987



implementation of chapter 87-6, Laws of Florida, and this act shall not
be subject to a s. 120.54(4), Florida Statutes, rule challenge or a
s. 120.54(17), Florida Statutes, drawout proceeding, but, once adopted,
shall be subject to a s. 120.56, Florida Statutes, invalidity challenge.
Such rules shall be adopted by the Governor and Cabinet and shall

fact were not based upon competent substantial evidence or that the
proceedings on which the findings were based did not comply with
essential requirements of law. The agency may accept the recom-
mended penalty in a recommended order, but may not reduce or
increase it without a review of the complete record and without stating
with particularity its reasons therefore in the order, by citing to the
record in justifying the action. When there is an appeal, the court in its
discretion may award reasonable attorney's fees and costs to the
prevailing party if the court finds that the appeal was frivolous,
meritless, or an abuse of the appellate process or that the agency
action which precipitated the appeal was a gross abuse of the agency's
discretion.
11. If the hearing officer assigned to a hearing becomes unavailable,
the division shall assign another hearing officer who shall use any
existing record and receive any additional evidence or argument, if
any, which the new hearing officer finds necessary.
12. A hearing officer who is a member of an agency head may
participate in the formulation of the final order of the agency, provided
he has completed all his duties as hearing officer.
13. In any application for a license or merger pursuant to title
XXXVIII which is referred by the agency to the division for hearing
pursuant to this section, the hearing officer shall complete and submit
to the agency and to all parties a written report consisting of findings
of fact and rulings on evidentiary matters. The agency shall allow each
party at least 10 days in which to submit written exceptions to the
report.
14. In any application for a consumptive use permit pursuant to part
II of chapter 373, the water management district on its own motion
may, or, at the request of the applicant for the permit, shall, refer the
matter to the division for the appointment of a hearing officer to
conduct a hearing under this section.
Section 31. Paragraph (b) of subsection (1) of section 120.575, Florida
Statutes, as created by chapter 87-6, Laws of Florida, and amended by
chapter 87-101, Laws of Florida, is hereby repealed.
Section 32. Subsection (5) of section 120.65, Florida Statutes, as
created by chapter 87-6, Laws of Florida, and amended by chapter
87-101, Laws of Florida, is hereby repealed.
Section 33. Section 213.30, Florida Statutes, as created by chapter
87-6, Laws of Florida, is hereby repealed.
Section 34. Any person who, before the effective date of this act, was
required by s. 212.13, Florida Statutes, as amended by chapters 87-6
and 87-101, Laws of Florida, to keep records relating to the sale or use
of services, shall continue to keep such records for a period of 3 years,
and such records shall be available for inspection in the same manner
as records kept pursuant to s. 212.13, Florida Statutes. The failure to
keep such records or to allow their inspection as required by this section
is subject to the same penalties provided in s. 212.13, Florida Statutes.
Section 35. The repeal by this act of any statute or part of a statute
does not affect the prosecution or continued prosecution of any cause of
action that accrued prior to the effective date of this act.
Section 36. Section 33 of chapter 87-6, Laws of Florida, as amended
by chapter 87-101, Laws of Florida, is amended to read:
Section 33. The Legislature hereby finds that the failure to promptly
implement the provisions of this act would present an immediate
threat to the welfare of the state because revenues needed for

operation of the state would not be collected. Therefore, the executive
director of the Department of Revenue is hereby authorized to adopt
emergency rules pursuant to s. 120.54(9), Florida Statutes, for pur-
poses of implementing this act. Notwithstanding any other provision of
law, such emergency rules shall remain effective through December 31,
1987 for 6 months from the date of adoption. Other rules of the
Department of Revenue related to and in furtherance of the orderly

become effective upon filing with the Department of State, notwith-
standing the provisions of s. 120.54(13), Florida Statutes.
Section 37. All services subject to tax under the provisions of chapter
87-6, Laws of Florida, as amended, which were sold or used in the state
prior to the effective date of this act remain taxable under the provisions
of said chapter, notwithstanding that payment for those services was
received by the dealer after the effective date of this act. This act shall
not be construed in any way to prohibit subsequent collection or
enforcement of taxes due under the provisions of said chapter prior to
the effective date of this act. To this end, the audit, collection, and
enforcement powers of the Department of Revenue shall be construed to
ensure that all taxes imposed by said chapter prior to the effective date of
this act are received by the state.
Section 38. (1) The department shall promulgate rules to ensure the
orderly implementation of this act.
(2) This section shall take effect upon this act becoming a law.
Section 39. The Legislature hereby finds that the failure to promptly
implement the provisions of this act would present an immediate threat
to the welfare of the state. The Administration Commission is hereby
authorized to adopt emergency rules pursuant to s. 120.54(9), Florida
Statutes, for purposes of implementing this act, which rules shall be

Explanations of Vote
Although I am voting in favor of the amendment to repeal the sales
tax on services, I believe it is imperative that the Legislature act on
the need for replacement revenue in order to insure that essential state
services are maintained.

Representative Charles T. Canady
District 44
I want to make my position clear in view of my vote today to support
repeal as an initial vote in a long process. My position has not changed
and in fact, I remain consistent in feeling that replacement revenue is
necessary and responsible. However, public confidence in the legisla-
tive process needed to be restored by repeal to begin a new slate for
new revenues.
I voted for repeal because I knew that this would necessitate the Bill
returning through the Appropriations process and it would give us
another opportunity to come up with alternative sources of needed
revenue. Further, there will be a conference bill and other votes to get
the revenues we need.
I recognize the tremendous needs for Florida's growth and the need
to fund that growth. Working closely with the education leaders in our
State, I recognize the needs for quality funding for education and the
need to pay adequate teacher salaries at both a public school and in
higher education levels.
I recognize the needs for strong funding of law enforcement,
infra-structure, and growth management and I know that it is not a
responsible position for the Legislature to fail to provide needed funds
to these growth related areas.
My vote today was to support REPEAL with consideration of
REPLACEMENT before we adjourn. It does not in any way reflect a
change in my position. I am firmly committed to REPEAL WITH
REPLACEMENT as the responsible position for the Florida House of
Representatives.
Representative John F. Cosgrove

On point of order by Rep. Bell, under Rule 8.8, that the bill now
affects appropriations, HB 26-B was committed to the Committee on

b. Each occasional or isolated sale of an aircraft, boat, mobile home,
or motor vehicle of a class or type which is required to be registered,
licensed, titled, or documented in this state or by the United States
Government shall be subject to tax at the rate provided in this
paragraph. The department shall, by rule, adopt the NADA Official
Used Car Guide as the reference price list for any used motor vehicle
which is required to be licensed pursuant to s. 320.08(1), (2), (3)(a), (b),
(c), or (f), or (9). If any party to an occasional or isolated sale of such a
vehicle reports to the tax collector a sales price which is less than 80
percent of the average loan price for the specified model and year of
such vehicle as listed in the most recent reference price list, the tax
levied under this paragraph shall be computed by the department on
such average loan price unless the parties to the sale have provided to
the tax collector an affidavit signed by each party, or other substantial
proof, stating the actual sales price. Any party to such sale who reports
a sales price less than the actual sales price is guilty of a misdemeanor
of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.083. The
department shall collect or attempt to collect from such party any
delinquent sales taxes. In addition, such party shall pay any tax due
and any penalty and interest assessed, plus a penalty equal to twice
the amount of the additional tax owed. Notwithstanding any other
provision of law, the Department of Revenue may waive or compromise
any penalty imposed after July 1, 1985, pursuant to this subparagraph.
2. This paragraph does not apply to the sale of a boat or airplane by
or through a registered dealer under this chapter to a purchaser who
removes such boat or airplane from this state within 10 days after the
date of purchase oi, when the boat or airplane is repaired or altered,
within 10 days after completion of such repairs or alterations. In no
event shall the boat or airplane remain in this state more than 90 days
after the date of purchase. This exemption shall not be allowed unless
the seller:
a. Obtains from the purchaser within 90 days from the date of sale
written proof that the purchaser licensed, registered, or documented
the boat or airplane outside the state;
b. Requires the purchaser to sign an affidavit that he has read the
provisions of this section; and
c. Makes the affidavit a part of his permanent record.
In the event the purchaser fails to remove the boat or airplane from
this state within 10 days after purchase or, when the boat or airplane
is repaired or altered, within 10 days after completion of such repairs
or alterations, or permits the boat or airplane to return to this state
within 6 months from the date of departure, the purchaser shall be
liable for use tax on the cost price of the boat or airplane and, in
addition thereto, payment of a penalty to the Department of Revenue
equal to the tax payable. This penalty shall be in lieu of the penalty
imposed by s. 212.12(2) and is mandatory and shall not be waived by
the department.
(b) At the rate of 6 5 percent of the cost price of each item or article
of tangible personal property when the same is not sold but is used,
consumed, distributed, or stored for use or consumption in this state.
(c) At the rate of 6 5 percent of the gross proceeds derived from the
lease or rental of tangible personal property, as defined herein, except
the lease or rental of a commercial motor vehicle as defined in
s. 316.003(67)(a) to one lessee or rentee for a period of not less than 12
months when tax was paid on the acquisition of such vehicle by the
lessor, when the lease or rental of such property is an established
business or part of an established business or the same is incidental or
germane to such business.
(d) At the rate of 6 5 percent of the lease or rental price paid by a
lessee or rentee, or contracted or agreed to be paid by a lessee or
rentee, to the owner of the tangible personal property.
(e)l. At the rate of 6 > percent on charges for all telegraph messages
and long distance telephone calls beginning and terminating in this
state; on charges for telecommunication service as defined in
s. 203.012 and for those services described in s. 203.012(2)(a); on
recurring charges to regular subscribers for wired television service; on



all charges for the installation of telecommunication, wired television,
and telegraphic equipment; and on all charges for electrical power or



October 1, 1987



energy. For purposes of this part, the term "telecommunication
service" does not include local service provided through a pay
telephone. The provisions of s. 212.17(3), regarding credit for tax paid
on charges subsequently found to be worthless, shall be equally
applicable to any tax paid under the provisions of this section on
charges for telecommunication or telegraph services or electric power
subsequently found to be uncollectible. The word "charges" in this
paragraph does not include any excise or similar tax levied by the
Federal Government, any political subdivision of the state, or any
municipality upon the purchase or sale of telecommunication, wired
television, or telegraph service or electric power, which tax is collected
by the seller from the purchaser.
2. Telegraph messages and telecommunication services which origi-
nate or terminate in this state, other than interstate private communi-
cation services, and are billed to a customer, telephone number, or
device located within this state are taxable under this paragraph.
Interstate private communication services are taxable under this
paragraph as follows:
a. One hundred percent of the charge imposed at each channel
termination point within this state;
b. One hundred percent of the charge imposed for the total channel
mileage between each channel termination point within this state; and
c. The portion of the interstate interoffice channel mileage charge as
determined by multiplying said charge times a fraction, the numerator
of which is the air miles between the last channel termination point in
this state and the vertical and horizontal coordinates, 7856 and 1756,
respectively, and the denominator of which is the air miles between
the last channel termination point in this state and the first channel
termination point outside this state. The denominator of this fraction
shall be adjusted, if necessary, by adding the numerator of said
fraction to similarly determined air miles in the state in which the
other channel termination point is located, so that the summation of
the apportionment factor for this state and the apportionment factor
for the other state is not greater than one, to ensure that no more than
100 percent of the interstate interoffice channel mileage charge can be
taxed by this state and another state.
3. The tax imposed pursuant to this paragraph shall not exceed
$50,000 per calendar year on charges to any person for interstate
telecommunications services defined in s. 203.012(4) and (7)(b), if the
majority of such services used by such person are for communications
originating outside of this state and terminating in this state. This
exemption shall only be granted to holders of a direct pay permit
issued pursuant to this subparagraph. No refunds shall be given for
taxes paid prior to receiving a direct pay permit. Upon application, the
department may issue a direct pay permit to the purchaser of
telecommunications services authorizing such purchaser to pay tax on
such services directly to the department. Any vendor furnishing
telecommunications services to the holder of a valid direct pay permit
shall be relieved of the obligation to collect and remit the tax on such
service. Tax payments and returns pursuant to a direct pay permit
shall be monthly. For purposes of this subparagraph, the term "person"
shall be limited to a single legal entity and shall not be construed as
meaning a group or combination of affiliated entities or entities
controlled by one person or group of persons. For purposes of this
subparagraph, for calendar year 1986, the term "calendar year" means
the last 6 months of 1986.
(f) At the rate of 6 i percent on the sale, rental, use, consumption, or
storage for use in this state of machines and equipment and parts and
accessories therefore used in manufacturing, processing, compounding,
producing, mining, or quarrying personal property for sale or to be
used in furnishing communications, transportation, or public utility
services.
(g) At the rate of 5 percent of the price, as determined pursuant to
part II, of each gallon of motor fuel or special fuel taxable pursuant to
that part, except that motor fuel and special fuel expressly taxable
under this part shall be taxed as provided in paragraphs (a) and (b).
(h) Any person who purchases, installs, rents, or leases a telephone



system or telecommunication system for his own use to provide himself
with telephone service or telecommunication service which is a

substitute for any telephone company switched service or a substitute
for any dedicated facility by which a telephone company provides a
communication path is exercising a taxable privilege and shall register
with the Department of Revenue and pay into the State Treasury a
yearly amount equal to 6 5 percent of the actual cost of operating such
system, notwithstanding the provisions of s. 212.081(3)(b). "Actual
cost" includes, but is not limited to, depreciation, interest, mainte-
nance, repair, and other expenses directly attributable to the operation
of such system. For purposes of this paragraph, the depreciation
expense to be included in actual cost shall be the depreciation expense
claimed for federal income tax purposes. The total amount of any
payment required by a lease or rental contract or agreement shall be
included within the actual cost. The provisions of this paragraph do not
apply to the use by any local telephone company or any telecommuni-
cation carrier of its own telephone system or telecommunication
system to conduct a telecommunication service for hire. If a system
described in this paragraph is located in more than one state, the
actual cost of such system for purposes of this paragraph shall be the
actual cost of the system's equipment located in Florida.
(i) At the rate of 6 5 percent on the retail price of newspapers and
magazines sold or used in Florida.
(j) At the rate of 6 percent on charges for cleaning, laundry, and
garment services as defined in SIC Group Number 721, except
coin-operated laundries and coin-operated dry cleaning establishments
enumerated in SIC Industry Number 7215.
(2) Effective July 1, 1988, paragraph (a) of subsection (1) of section
212.05, Florida Statutes, 1986 Supplement, as further amended by
section 83 of chapter 87-6 and section 52 of chapter 87-101, Laws of
Florida, is amended to read:

or who rents or furnishes any of the things or services taxable under
this section, or who stores for use or consumption in this state any item
or article of tangible personal property as defined herein and who
leases or rents such property within the state.
(1) For the exercise of such privilege, a tax is levied on each taxable
transaction or incident, which tax is due and payable as follows:
(a)l.a. At the rate of 6 5 percent of the sales price of each item or
article of tangible personal property when sold at retail in this state,

b. Each occasional or isolated sale of an aircraft, boat, mobile home,
or motor vehicle of a class or type which is required to be registered,
licensed, titled, or documented in this state or by the United States
Government shall be subject to tax at the rate provided in this
paragraph. The department shall, by rule, adopt the NADA Official
Used Car Guide as the reference price list for any used motor vehicle
which is required to be licensed pursuant to s. 320.08(1), (2), (3)(a), (b),
(c), or (f), or (9). If any party to an occasional or isolated sale of such a
vehicle reports to the tax collector a sales price which is less than 80
percent of the average loan price for the specified model and year of
such vehicle as listed in the most recent reference price list, the tax
levied under this paragraph shall be computed by the department on
such average loan price unless the parties to the sale have provided to
the tax collector an affidavit signed by each party, or other substantial
proof, stating the actual sales price. Any party to such sale who reports
a sales price less than the actual sales price is guilty of a misdemeanor
of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or
s. 775.084. The department shall collect or attempt to collect from such
party any delinquent sales taxes. In addition, such party shall pay any
tax due and any penalty and interest assessed, plus a penalty equal to
twice the amount of the additional tax owed. Notwithstanding any
other provision of law, the Department of Revenue may waive or
compromise any penalty imposed after July 1, 1985, pursuant to this
subparagraph.

business entity, together with the appropriate interest and penalty,
computed from the date of purchase, in the manner prescribed by this
chapter.
d. In the event a qualifying business entity fails to apply for a



temporary exemption permit or if the tentative determination by the
department required to obtain a temporary exemption permit is



51



negative, a qualifying business entity shall receive the exemption
provided in subparagraph 1. or subparagraph 2. through a refund of
previously paid taxes. No refund may be made for such taxes unless
the criteria mandated by subparagraph 1. or subparagraph 2. have
been met and commencement of production has occurred.
4. The department shall promulgate rules governing applications for,
issuance of, and the form of temporary tax exemption permits;
provisions for recapture of taxes; and the manner and form of refund
applications and may establish guidelines as to the requisites for an
affirmative showing of increased productive output, commencement of
production, and qualification for exemption.
5. The exemptions provided in subparagraphs 1. and 2. do not apply
to machinery; or equipment; oe services purchased or used by electric
utility companies, communications companies, phosphate or other solid
minerals severance, mining, or processing operations, oil or gas
exploration or production operations, printing or publishing firms, any
firm subject to regulation by the Division of Hotels and Restaurants of
the Department of Business Regulation, or any firm which does not
manufacture, process, compound, or produce for sale items of tangible
personal property.
6. For the purposes of the exemptions provided in subparagraphs 1.
and 2., these terms have the following meanings:
a. "Industrial machinery and equipment" means "section 38 proper-
ty" as defined in s. 48(a)(1)(A) and (B)(i) of the Internal Revenue Code,
provided "industrial machinery and equipment" shall be construed by
regulations adopted by the Department of Revenue to mean tangible
property used as an integral part of the manufacturing, processing,
compounding, or producing for sale of items of tangible personal
property. Such term includes parts and accessories only to the extent
that the exemption thereof is consistent with the provisions of this
paragraph.
b. "Productive output" means the number of units actually produced
by a single plant or operation in a single continuous 12-month period,
irrespective of sales. Increases in productive output shall be measured
by the output for 12 continuous months immediately following the
completion of installation of such machinery or equipment over the
output for the 12 continuous months immediately preceding such
installation. However, if a different 12-month continuous period of
time would more accurately reflect the increase in productive output of
machinery and equipment purchased to facilitate an expansion, the
increase in productive output may be measured during that 12-month
continuous period of time if such time period is mutually agreed upon
by the Department of Revenue and the expanding business prior to the
commencement of production; but in no case may such time period
begin later than 2 years following the completion of installation of the
new machinery and equipment. The units used to measure productive
output shall be physically comparable between the two periods,
irrespective of sales.
Section 18. Paragraph (a) of subsection (3), paragraph (c) of

reasonable notice of not less than 14 days; however, the 14-day notice
requirement may be waived with the consent of all parties. In a
preliminary hearing for the revocation of parole, no less than 7 days'
notice shall be given. In a hearing involving a student disciplinary
suspension or expulsion conducted by an educational unit, the 14-day
notice requirement may be waived by the agency head or the hearing
officer without the consent of the parties. The notice shall include:
a. A statement of the time, place, and nature of the hearing.
b. A statement of the legal authority and jurisdiction under which
the hearing is to be held.
c. A reference to the particular sections of the statutes and rules
involved.
d. Except for any hearing before an unemployment compensation
appeals referee, a short and plain statement of the matters asserted by
the agency and by all parties of record at the time notice is given. If
the agency or any party is unable to state the matters in sufficient
detail at the time initial notice is given, the notice may be limited to a
statement of the issues involved, and thereafter, upon timely written
application, a more definite and detailed statement shall be furnished
not less than 3 days prior to the date set for the hearing.
3. Except for any proceeding conducted as prescribed in s. 120.54(4);
or s. 120.56, or f 10.575()(b), a petition or request for a hearing
under this section shall be filed with the agency. If the agency elects to

division within 15 days of receipt of the petition or request. When the
Florida Land and Water Adjudicatory Commission receives a notice of
appeal pursuant to s. 380.07, the commission shall notify the division
within 60 days of receipt of the notice of appeal if the commission
elects to request the assignment of a hearing officer. On the request of
any agency, the division shall assign a hearing officer with due regard
to the expertise required for the particular matter. The referring
agency shall take no further action with respect to the formal
proceeding, except as a party litigant, as long as the division has
jurisdiction over the formal proceeding. Any party may request the
disqualification of the hearing officer by filing an affidavit with the
division prior to the taking of evidence at a hearing, stating the
grounds with particularity.
4. All parties shall have an opportunity to respond, to present
evidence and argument on all issues involved, to conduct cross-exami-
nation and submit rebuttal evidence, to submit proposed findings of
facts and orders, to file exceptions to any order or hearing officer's
recommended order, and to be represented by counsel. When appropri-
ate, the general public may be given an opportunity to present oral or
written communications. If the agency proposes to consider such
material, then all parties shall be given an opportunity to cross-exam-
ine or challenge or rebut it.
5. All pleadings, motions, or other papers filed in the proceeding
must be signed by a party, the party's attorney, or the party's qualified
representative. The signature of a party, a party's attorney, or a
party's qualified representative constitutes a certificate that he has
read the pleading, motion, or other paper and that, to the best of his
knowledge, information, and belief formed after reasonable inquiry, it
is not interposed for any improper purposes, such as to harass or to
cause unnecessary delay or for frivolous purpose or needless increase
in the cost of litigation. If a pleading, motion, or other paper is signed
in violation of these requirements, the hearing officer, upon motion or
his own initiative, shall impose upon the person who signed it, a
represented party, or both, an appropriate sanction, which may include
an order to pay the other party or parties the amount of reasonable
expenses incurred because of the filing of the pleading, motion, or
other paper, including a reasonable attorney's fee.

records;
h. All matters placed on the record after an ex parte communication
pursuant to s. 120.66(2); and
i. The official transcript.
7. The agency shall accurately and completely preserve all testimony
in the proceeding, and, on the request of any party, it shall make a full
or partial transcript available at no more than actual cost. In any
proceeding before a hearing officer initiated by a consumptive use
permit applicant pursuant to subparagraph 14., the applicant shall
bear the cost of accurately and completely preserving all testimony and
providing full or partial transcripts to the water management district.
At the request of any other party, full or partial transcripts shall be
provided at no more than cost.
8. Findings of fact shall be based exclusively on the evidence of
record and on matters officially recognized.
9. Except as provided in subparagraph 12., the hearing officer shall
complete and submit to the agency and all parties a recommended
order consisting of his findings of fact, conclusions of law, interpreta-
tion of administrative rules, and recommended penalty, if applicable,
and any other information required by law or agency rule to be
contained in the final order. The agency shall allow each party at least
10 days in which to submit written exceptions to the recommended
order.
10. The agency may adopt the recommended order as the final order
of the agency. The agency in its final order may reject or modify the
conclusions of law and interpretation of administrative rules in the
recommended order, but may not reject or modify the findings of fact
unless the agency first determines from a review of the complete
record, and states with particularity in the order, that the findings of
fact were not based upon competent substantial evidence or that the
proceedings on which the findings were based did not comply with
essential requirements of law. The agency may accept the recom-
mended penalty in a recommended order, but may not reduce or
increase it without a review of the complete record and without stating
with particularity its reasons therefore in the order, by citing to the
record in justifying the action. When there is an appeal, the court in its
discretion may award reasonable attorney's fees and costs to the
prevailing party if the court finds that the appeal was frivolous,
meritless, or an abuse of the appellate process or that the agency
action which precipitated the appeal was a gross abuse of the agency's
discretion.
11. If the hearing officer assigned to a hearing becomes unavailable,
the division shall assign another hearing officer who shall use any
existing record and receive any additional evidence or argument, if
any, which the new hearing officer finds necessary.
12. A hearing officer who is a member of an agency head may
participate in the formulation of the final order of the agency, provided
he has completed all his duties as hearing officer.
13. In any application for a license or merger pursuant to title
XXXVIII which is referred by the agency to the division for hearing
pursuant to this section, the hearing officer shall complete and submit
to the agency and to all parties a written report consisting of findings
of fact and rulings on evidentiary matters. The agency shall allow each
party at least 10 days in which to submit written exceptions to the

shall continue to keep such records for a period of 3 years, and such

records or to allow their inspection as required by this section is subject
to the same penalties provided in s. 212.13, Florida Statutes.

presidential primary election, at which the following question shall be
placed on the ballot:

SALES TAX QUESTION
Do you wish to retain the sales tax on services and the increase in the
documentary stamp tax, which were adopted by the Florida Legislature
in 1987, instead of increasing the general sales tax from 5 percent to 6
percent on goods, admissions, and rentals?
(2) It is the intent of the Legislature that an affirmative vote on the
question by a majority of the electors voting in such referendum shall
repeal the provisions of Part I of this act as provided in subsection (1). If

Prayer

The following prayer was offered by Speaker pro tempore Burke:
Our Heavenly Father, we meet again to complete a process of
meeting the needs of the people of this state who elected us. It has been
a difficult task, but as with many legislative tasks, we know that we
are engaged in a process and not in immediately gratifying actions.
Help us Father, to do what is right. And when this process is at its
most difficult time, to be guided by the words of that old African-
American spiritual: "I ain't no ways tired; I come too far from where I
started from. Nobody told mee the road will be easy; but I don't believe
he brought me this far to leave me." Thank You, Father, for this day
and this opportunity to do what is right. Amen.

Prayer

The following prayer was offered by Representative Crady:
Our Father who art in Heaven, we thank Thee for allowing us to
meet as a body in Thy Name, along with the press and those watching.
Though we are not of a like mind at this time, bless the efforts that
have been forthcoming and lead us into a resolvement that will best
benefit the people of the State of Florida.
We firmly believe that the process works, but we are rapidly
realizing that divine intervention would not necessarily be rejected.
Keep our minds clear, our hearts pure, and allow our egos to be
suppressed long enough to get the job done.
We ask these things in Thy Name. Amen.

chapter.

rate of 5.5 5 percent of the value of the property, goods, wares,
merchandise, services, or other things of value.
(4) The tax levied by this section shall not apply to, be imposed upon,
or collected from any person who shall have entered into a bona fide
written lease for longer than 6 months in duration for continuous
residence at any one hotel, apartment house, roominghouse, tourist or
trailer camp, or condominium, or to any person who shall reside
continuously longer than 6 months at any one hotel, apartment house,
roominghouse, tourist or trailer camp, or condominium and shall have
paid the tax levied by this section for 6 months of residence in any one
hotel, roominghouse, apartment house, tourist or trailer camp, or
condominium. Notwithstanding other provisions of this chapter, no tax
shall be imposed upon rooms provided guests when there is no
consideration involved between the guest and the public lodging
establishment. Further, any person who, on the effective date of this
act, has resided continuously for 6 months at any one hotel, apartment
house, roominghouse, tourist or trailer camp, or condominium, or, if
less than 6 months, has paid the tax imposed herein until he shall

same manner as and shall be collectible as are liens authorized and
imposed by ss. 713.68 and 713.69.
(6) It is the legislative intent that every person is engaging in a
taxable privilege who leases or rents parking or storage spaces for
motor vehicles in parking lots or garages, who leases or rents docking
or storage spaces for boats in boat docks or marinas, or who leases or

ment. The exemption contained in this subsection shall apply irre-
spective of any other provisions of this section. The tax levied by this
section shall not apply to or be imposed upon or collected on the basis
of rentals to any person who resides in any building or group of
buildings intended primarily for lease or rent to persons as their
permanent or principal place of residence.
(b) It is the intent of the Legislature that this subsection provide tax
relief for persons who rent living accommodations rather than own
their homes, while still providing a tax on the rental of lodging

admissions.
(c) The taxes imposed by this section shall be collected in addition to
the admission tax collected pursuant to s. 550.09, but the amount
collected under s. 550.09 shall not be subject to taxation under this
chapter.
(3) Such taxes shall be paid and remitted at the same time and in the
same manner as provided for remitting taxes on sales of tangible
personal property, as hereinafter provided.
(4) Each person who exercises the privilege of charging admission
taxes, as herein defined, shall apply for, and at that time shall furnish
the information and comply with the provisions of s. 212.18 not
inconsistent herewith and receive from the department, a certificate of
right to exercise such privilege, which certificate shall apply to each
place of business where such privilege is exercised and shall be in the
manner and form prescribed by the department. Such certificate shall
be issued upon payment to the department of a registration fee of $5 by
the applicant. Each person exercising the privilege of charging such
admission taxes as herein defined shall cause to be kept records and
accounts showing the admission which shall be in the form as the
department may from time to time prescribe, inclusive of records of all
tickets numbered and issued for a period of not less than 3 years, and
inclusive of all bills or checks of customers who are charged any of the
taxes defined herein, showing the charge made to each for a period of
not less than 3 years. The department is empowered to use each and
every one of the powers granted herein to the department to discover
the amount of tax to be paid by each such person and to enforce the
payment thereof as are hereby granted the department for the
discovery and enforcement of the payment of taxes hereinafter levied
on the sales of tangible personal property. The failure of any person to
pay such taxes before the 21st day of the succeeding month after the
taxes are collected shall render such person liable to the same
penalties that are hereafter imposed upon such person for being
delinquent in the payment of taxes imposed upon the sales of tangible
personal property; and the failure of any person to render returns and
to pay taxes as prescribed herein shall render such person subject to
the same penalties, by way of charges for delinquencies, at the rate of 5

investigation, discovery, and aids to collection of taxes upon sales of
tangible personal property shall likewise apply to all privileges
described or referred to in this section; and the obligations imposed in
this chapter upon retailers are hereby imposed upon the seller of such
admissions. When tickets or admissions are sold and not used but
returned and credited by the seller, the seller may apply to the
department for a credit allowance for such returned tickets or
admissions if advance payments have been made by the buyer and
have been returned by the seller, upon such form and in such manner
as the department may from time to time prescribe; and the
department may, upon obtaining satisfactory proof of the refunds on
the part of the seller, credit the seller for taxes paid upon admissions
that have been returned unused to the purchaser of those admissions.
The seller of admissions, upon the payment of the taxes before they
become delinquent and the rendering of the returns in accordance with
the requirement of the department and as provided in this law, shall
be entitled to a discount of 3 percent of the amount of taxes upon the
payment thereof before such taxes become delinquent, in the same
manner as permitted the sellers of tangible personal property in this
chapter. However, if the amount of the tax due and remitted to the
department for the reporting period exceeds $1,000, the 3-percent
discount shall be reduced to 1 percent for all amounts in excess of
$1,000.

Section 7. Section 212.05, Florida Statutes, as amended by section 10
of chapter 87-6, sections 2 and 9 of chapter 87-99, section 12 of chapter
87-101, and section 7 of chapter 87-402, Laws of Florida, is amended to
read:
212.05 Sales, storage, use tax.-It is hereby declared to be the
legislative intent that every person is exercising a taxable privilege
who engages in the business of selling tangible personal property at
retail in this state, including the business of making mail order sales,
or who rents or furnishes any of the things or services taxable under
this chapter section, or who stores for use or consumption in this state
any item or article of tangible personal property as defined herein and
who leases or rents such property within the state.
(1) For the exercise of such privilege, a tax is levied on each taxable
transaction or incident, which tax is due and payable as follows:
(a)l.a. At the rate of 5.5 5 percent of the sales price of each item or
article of tangible personal property when sold at retail in this state,
computed on each taxable sale for the purpose of remitting the amount
of tax due the state, and including each and every retail sale.
b. Each occasional or isolated sale of an aircraft, boat, mobile home,
or motor vehicle of a class or type which is required to be registered,
licensed, titled, or documented in this state or by the United States
Government shall be subject to tax at the rate provided in this
paragraph. The department shall, by rule, adopt the NADA Official
Used Car Guide as the reference price list for any used motor vehicle
which is required to be licensed pursuant to s. 320.08(1), (2), (3)(a), (b),
(c), or (f), or (9). If any party to an occasional or isolated sale of such a
vehicle reports to the tax collector a sales price which is less than 80
percent of the average loan price for the specified model and year of
such vehicle as listed in the most recent reference price list, the tax
levied under this paragraph shall be computed by the department on
such average loan price unless the parties to the sale have provided to
the tax collector an affidavit signed by each party, or other substantial
proof, stating the actual sales price. Any party to such sale who reports
a sales price less than the actual sales price is guilty of a misdemeanor
of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.083. The
department shall collect or attempt to collect from such party any
delinquent sales taxes. In addition, such party shall pay any tax due
and any penalty and interest assessed, plus a penalty equal to twice
the amount of the additional tax owed. Notwithstanding any other
provision of law, the Department of Revenue may waive or compromise
any penalty imposed after July 1, 1985, pursuant to this subparagraph.













within 10 days after completion of such repairs or alterations. In no
event shall the boat or airplane remain in this state more than 90 days
after the date of purchase. This exemption shall not be allowed unless
the seller:
a. Obtains from the purchaser within 90 days from the date of sale
written proof that the purchaser licensed, registered, or documented
the boat or airplane outside the state;
b. Requires the purchaser to sign an affidavit that he has read the
provisions of this section; and
c. Makes the affidavit a part of his permanent record.
In the event the purchaser fails to remove the boat or airplane from
this state within 10 days after purchase or, when the boat or airplane
is repaired or altered, within 10 days after completion of such repairs
or alterations, or permits the boat or airplane to return to this state
within 6 months from the date of departure, the purchaser shall be
liable for use tax on the cost price of the boat or airplane and, in
addition thereto, payment of a penalty to the Department of Revenue
equal to the tax payable. This penalty shall be in lieu of the penalty
imposed by s. 212.12(2) and is mandatory and shall not be waived by
the department.
(b) At the rate of 5.5 5 percent of the cost price of each item or article
of tangible personal property when the same is not sold but is used,
consumed, distributed, or stored for use or consumption in this state.
(c) At the rate of 5.5 5 percent of the gross proceeds derived from the
lease or rental of tangible personal property, as defined herein, except
the lease or rental of a commercial motor vehicle as defined in
s. 316.003(67)(a) to one lessee or rentee for a period of not less than 12
months when tax was paid on the acquisition of such vehicle by the
lessor, when the lease or rental of such property is an established
business or part of an established business or the same is incidental or
germane to such business.
(d) At the rate of 5.5 5 percent of the lease or rental price paid by a
lessee or rentee, or contracted or agreed to be paid by a lessee or
rentee, to the owner of the tangible personal property.
(e)l. At the rate of 5.5 5 percent on charges for all telegraph
messages and long distance telephone calls beginning and terminating
in this state; on charges for telecommunication service as defined in
s. 203.012 and for those services described in s. 203.012(2)(a); on
recurring charges to regular subscribers for wired television service; on
all charges for the installation of telecommunication, wired television,
and telegraphic equipment; and on all charges for electrical power or
energy. For purposes of this part, the term "telecommunication
service" does not include local service provided through a pay
telephone. The provisions of s. 212.17(3), regarding credit for tax paid
on charges subsequently found to be worthless, shall be equally
applicable to any tax paid under the provisions of this section on
charges for telecommunication or telegraph services or electric power
subsequently found to be uncollectible. The word "charges" in this
paragraph does not include any excise or similar tax levied by the
Federal Government, any political subdivision of the state, or any
municipality upon the purchase or sale of telecommunication, wired
television, or telegraph service or electric power, which tax is collected
by the seller from the purchaser.
2. Telegraph messages and telecommunication services which origi-
nate or terminate in this state, other than interstate private communi-
cation services, and are billed to a customer, telephone number, or
device located within this state are taxable under this paragraph.
Interstate private communication services are taxable under this
paragraph as follows:
a. One hundred percent of the charge imposed at each channel
termination point within this state;
b. One hundred percent of the charge imposed for the total channel
mileage between each channel termination point within this state; and
c. The portion of the interstate interoffice channel mileage charge as
determined by multiplying said charge times a fraction, the numerator
of which is the air miles between the last channel termination point in



this state and the vertical and horizontal coordinates, 7856 and 1756,
respectively, and the denominator of which is the air miles between



71



the last channel termination point in this state and the first channel
termination point outside this state. The denominator of this fraction
shall be adjusted, if necessary, by adding the numerator of said
fraction to similarly determined air miles in the state in which the
other channel termination point is located, so that the summation of
the apportionment factor for this state and the apportionment factor
for the other state is not greater than one, to ensure that no more than
100 percent of the interstate interoffice channel mileage charge can be
taxed by this state and another state.
3. The tax imposed pursuant to this paragraph shall not exceed
$50,000 per calendar year on charges to any person for interstate
telecommunications services defined in s. 203.012(4) and (7)(b), if the
majority of such services used by such person are for communications
originating outside of this state and terminating in this state. This
exemption shall only be granted to holders of a direct pay permit
issued pursuant to this subparagraph. No refunds shall be given for
taxes paid prior to receiving a direct pay permit. Upon application, the
department may issue a direct pay permit to the purchaser of
telecommunications services authorizing such purchaser to pay tax on
such services directly to the department. Any vendor furnishing
telecommunications services to the holder of a valid direct pay permit
shall be relieved of the obligation to collect and remit the tax on such
service. Tax payments and returns pursuant to a direct pay permit
shall be monthly. For purposes of this subparagraph, the term "person"
shall be limited to a single legal entity and shall not be construed as
meaning a group or combination of affiliated entities or entities
controlled by one person or group of persons. For purposes of this
subparagraph, for calendar year 1986, the term "calendar year" means
the last 6 months of 1986.
(f) At the rate of 5.5 5 percent on the sale, rental, use, consumption,
or storage for use in this state of machines and equipment and parts
and accessories therefore used in manufacturing, processing, com-
pounding, producing, mining, or quarrying personal property for sale
or to be used in furnishing communications, transportation, or public
utility services.
(g) At the rate of 5 percent of the price, as determined pursuant to
part II, of each gallon of motor fuel or special fuel taxable pursuant to
that part, except that motor fuel and special fuel expressly taxable
under this part shall be taxed as provided in paragraphs (a) and (b).
(h) Any person who purchases, installs, rents, or leases a telephone
system or telecommunication system for his own use to provide himself
with telephone service or telecommunication service which is a
substitute for any telephone company switched service or a substitute
for any dedicated facility by which a telephone company provides a
communication path is exercising a taxable privilege and shall register
with the Department of Revenue and pay into the State Treasury a
yearly amount equal to 5.5 5 percent of the actual cost of operating
such system, notwithstanding the provisions of s. 212.081(3)(b). "Ac-
tual cost" includes, but is not limited to, depreciation, interest,
maintenance, repair, and other expenses directly attributable to the
operation of such system. For purposes of this paragraph, the
depreciation expense to be included in actual cost shall be the
depreciation expense claimed for federal income tax purposes. The
total amount of any payment required by a lease or rental contract or
agreement shall be included within the actual cost. The provisions of
this paragraph do not apply to the use by any local telephone company
or any telecommunication carrier of its own telephone system or
telecommunication system to conduct a telecommunication service for
hire. If a system described in this paragraph is located in more than
one state, the actual cost of such system for purposes of this paragraph
shall be the actual cost of the system's equipment located in Florida.
(i) At the rate of 5.5 5 percent on the retail price of newspapers and
magazines sold or used in Florida.
(2) The tax shall be collected by the dealer, as defined herein, and
remitted by him to the state at the time and in the manner as
hereinafter provided.
(3) The tax so levied is in addition to all other taxes, whether levied



in the form of excise, license, or privilege taxes, and in addition to all
other fees and taxes levied.

affidavit under this section. The log shall identify the purchaser, the
