SThe JournalOF THE


House of Representatives



Tuesday, February 8, 1994



Journal of the House of Representatives for the 96th Regular Session since Statehood in 1845, convened under the
Constitution of 1968, begun and held at the Capitol in the City of Tallahassee in the State of Florida, on Tuesday, February
8, 1994, being the day fixed by the Constitution for the purpose.



This being the day fixed by the Constitution for the convening of the
Legislature, the Members of the House of Representatives met in the
Chamber at 10:00 a.m. for the beginning of the 96th Regular Session and
were called to order by the Speaker, the Honorable Bolley L. Johnson.

Prayer
The following prayer was offered by the Reverend George Sedberry,
First United Methodist Church of Milton, upon invitation of Speaker
Johnson:
O God, we thank You for being the One in whom we can take refuge. We
thank You for being the One who has guided Your people, for being the One
that has brought healing where there was sickness, for being the One who
has brought life when otherwise there would be death.
God, if ever we needed Your wisdom and Your guidance it is now as this
House of Representatives begins a new session, standing upon the
threshold of a new year. May Your blessings be upon each of these
Representatives as You know them, as You know their needs, their
"motives, and their hopes. May the God that gave to Moses the staff in order
that his needs be met, give to these Your spirit that they may feel Your
strength and know Your wisdom is greater than their own.
O God, it is from You that all goodness comes, it is from You that our
ideals come, it is from You that there comes to us the spur of high desire
and the restraint of conscience as we hear many voices calling out to us.
Enable us this day and the days following to hear, above all other voices,
Your voice, so that we may strive daily to do Your will, and may we never
forget that what is said and done is always under Your watchful eye and
Your loving heart. All this we ask through Thy Son, Jesus Christ, in whose
name we pray. Amen.

No. 83,131
In Re: CERTIFICATION OF NEED FOR ADDITIONAL JUDGES
[February 3, 1994]
BARKETT, C. J.
Under the provisions of article V, section 9, of the Florida Constitution,
the Florida Supreme Court is responsible for determining the need for an
increase or decrease in the number of judges required to consider and
dispose of cases filed before the respective courts. To this end, we have
analyzed case filings and evaluated the growth in the workload of the State
Courts System over the past several years.
As the result of this review, we certify the need for eight circuit court
judges and three county court judges. A comparison of the requests for new
judges filed by the respective courts and the new judgeships certified as
needed for fiscal year 1994-95 follows:

Florida Rule of Judicial Administration 2.035(b)(1) sets forth the criteria
for certification of need for judges at the trial court level. As with
certifications of recent years, we have placed the greatest weight on
statistical data reflecting the growth and composition of caseloads in the
various circuits and counties. We have determined that the most consistent
and reliable measure of workload at the trial court level is total case filings
per judge. Criminal, civil, probate, family, and juvenile case filings for each
circuit are also evaluated by applying different weights reflecting varying
requirements for judicial hearing time and attention. The filings per judge
statistics for the county courts are adjusted to exclude worthless check and
civil traffic infractions.
In addition to those factors prescribed in Florida Rule of Judicial
Administration 2.035, other criteria we considered included the use of
county and senior judges on temporary assignment; the availability of
supplemental hearing resources furnished by the counties (traffic
magistrates, child support hearing officers, and general or special masters);
reliance on mediation and arbitration to resolve cases; and special local
circumstances that affect case handling.
We find it necessary to certify the need for eight circuit judges this year,
including one additional circuit judgeship for the Fifth, Twelfth,
Fourteenth, and Eighteenth Judicial Circuits and two additional circuit
judgeships for the Ninth and Eleventh Judicial Circuits.
Overall, circuit case filings are projected to be down from 1992 to 1993,
and this trend is predicted to continue in 1994, albeit at a reduced rate.
This downward trend is driven by a substantial decline in circuit civil
filings. In 1992, civil filings declined 13.2% from the 1991 level. A decline
of approximately 8.9% is expected for 1993 and civil filings should fall
another .9% in 1994. While the increase in the monetary jurisdiction of the
county court to $15,000 (from $5,000) that went into effect between 1990
and 1992 is a primary contributor to this decline, the magnitude of the
decrease cannot be attributed solely to this jurisdictional change. Other
factors contributing to this decline are unknown at present, though the
disruption caused by Hurricane Andrew to the operations of the courts in
south Florida in early fall of 1992 is documented to have had an impact.
The circuits have realized a gradual increase in domestic relations cases.
Prior year filings of guardianship and mental health cases have also seen
modest increases. However, domestic violence filings are projected to
increase in excess of 50% from 1991 to 1994.
Criminal filings are projected to show a decline of 3.6% from 1992 to
1993 and an additional modest reduction of .2% in 1994. Juvenile filings
are expected to grow 1.2% and 1.5% per year over the same time frame.
A more recent and disturbing trend, however, is the increase in crimes of
violence. Violent felony case filings are increasing in proportion to other
crimes. Likewise, juvenile delinquency case filings are increasing in
lethality.
All of the courts for which new circuit judgeships are requested are
projected to have 1994 filings levels very near to or well above the 1,865
filings per judge threshold, at which this Court has determined there is a
presumptive need for more judicial resources, with the exception of the
Eleventh Judicial Circuit. Other factors, such as geographical constraints
affecting judicial assignments, the availability and reliance on senior
judges for temporary assignment, and historical assignments of county
judges to hear circuit court matters, weighed heavily in our decisions for
selected circuits.
We are certifying the need for two additional circuit judgeships for the
Eleventh Judicial Circuit notwithstanding that forecasted caseloads are



2



February 8, 1994














somewhat below the threshold of 1,865 filings per judge. The most
compelling factor in favor of the request of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit
is the increasing cultural diversity of litigants, defendants, and witnesses
appearing in court proceedings. Last year, almost 195,000 translations of
testimony were required in Dade County. This results in more lengthy
hearings and trials and is substantiated by data on the length of trials
gathered by the Office of the State Courts Administrator which indicates
such proceedings require about 25% more time in the Eleventh Judicial
Circuit than in other circuits. We also find that the Eleventh Judicial
Circuit loses the equivalent of approximately two circuit judges due to
administrative duties required of the chief judge and administrative judges
of the separate divisions of the court. These factors have necessitated
extensive assignments of county judges to the circuit court to the apparent
detriment of case handling in the county court. It is the view of this Court
that the two additional circuit judges we are certifying should enable a shift
of some of the existing county judges back to county court. Such a shift
coupled with the new Dade County judgeship we certify as needed should
permit more efficient handling of cases in the jurisdiction of the county
court.
These judgeships are critical to the ability of the circuit courts to keep
up with caseloads. Significant differences in waiting time to have motions
heard or cases tried in civil, family, and criminal matters have developed
because, in times when resources are limited, chief judges must give
priority to criminal dockets. This causes civil and family calendars to
become more congested. With disposition rates leveling off in recent years,
which suggests Florida judges are working at or near capacity, these
already intolerable delays will only worsen if the additional judgeships we
have certified are not authorized and funded. The judgeships we find to be
needed will not enable a reversal of these trends, but they are crucial to our
ability to avoid greater delays than are currently the norm in the affected
circuits.
We also find that addressing the workload problems of the trial courts
requires a comprehensive approach. Our senior judge program, additional
compensation for county judges serving in circuit court, trial court law
clerks, and other management and technological enhancements are
essential components of our overall strategy to improve the operation of
the judicial system. We are also proposing a new family court initiative, full
funding for which is critical to our trial courts' ability to meet their
constitutional obligations. Research findings consistently point out that
dysfunctional families contribute to crime and delinquency among our
youth as well as increased domestic violence and child abuse. We are
proposing a comprehensive integrated response to families in litigation
which requires enhanced resources for the judicial system at the front end
of the process, and better communication between the courts and
community based resources designed to meet specific needs of individuals
and families. The courts must be equipped to identify the needs and
problems of families seeking court intervention before they escalate into
crime, violence, delinquency, divorce, child abuse, and child neglect. In
addition to the humanitarian benefits of this initiative, we believe it will
also enhance the trial courts' ability to effectively handle the current
caseload problems in those divisions of circuit court where family related
matters are heard.
County court criminal and civil filings are projected to remain relatively
stable through 1994. However, DUI case filings are projected to increase
3.6%. Also, the change in the blood alcohol level for DUI offenses from .10
to .08, which recently took effect, will likely push DUI filing levels higher.
We expect a concomitant increase in jury trial activity for such cases.
Similar increases in trials for non-small claims civil filings (cases with a
monetary value between $5,000 and $15,000) are expected. These types of
cases require more judicial time to dispose of, and therefore offset the
relatively flat county caseload trend overall.
We are certifying the need for three new county court judgeships for
fiscal year 1994-95 with one additional for Dade, Broward, and
Hillsborough Counties.
In evaluating the need for such positions, we relied principally on case
filings data that were adjusted to include only criminal, civil, DUI, and
other criminal traffic cases. As in the past, worthless check cases and civil
traffic infractions were weighted less heavily because of their limited
requirements for judicial time, the diversion of large numbers of worthless
check cases in selected circuits, and the variability and volume of such
cases reported from county to county. We have determined that 6,114
filings per judge is the threshold that should be used to determine the need
for an additional county judge.



3



County courts with caseloads near or exceeding 6,114 filings per judge
are operating at or above capacity. County judges in such courts were found
to have relatively little time to assist with case assignments at the circuit
court level. Where the judges in these counties did help with the circuit
court workload, it was to the detriment of case processing in the county
courts. All of the counties for which certification of need is made are
projected to exceed the 6,114 threshold.
Full funding for the requests certified as needed herein is deemed
absolutely essential if Florida's courts are to fulfill their constitutional
mandate to try cases in a fair, impartial, and timely manner.
It is so ordered.

E OF REPRESENTATIVES February 8, 1994

Today is the first opportunity that I've had to be with you since our
special session on workers' compensation and juvenile gun control last
November. I thank you sincerely for your work during that session and the
outstanding legislation that you produced.
You have changed Florida's workers' compensation system from one of
the worst to one of the best, if not the best, in the nation. You passed a
tough, smart bill designed to quickly rehabilitate workers instead of
guaranteeing profits for lawyers and health providers.
It's a bill that gives businesses the ability to control their costs by
selecting managed care, instituting safety and drug-free workplaces, and
as a result, now our businesses can reduce their workers' compensation
premiums at least 20 percent. That's going to provide more money for jobs,
for expansion which is certainly going to allow them to be more competitive
and profitable. How did this happen? I think it happened because we set
an ambitious goal and we refused to allow the special interests to defeat
the people's interest.
Also, you should feel justly proud of your work on the Florida Health
Security Act. When I meet with other governors or industry leaders, the
first question they ask me is how have'we gotten so far down the road to
affordable health care for all Floridians so fast. Even before our CHPA
boards open their bids, and that's going to be two days from today,
Florida's economy has received a dividend of a billion, one-hundred million
dollars. That's the difference between the growth of health insurance in
Florida today, 2.1 percent, as opposed to the national average, 8.6 percent.
You'll remember with me that during the last ten years our growth
increased 20 percent a year. So the Pacman of Florida's businesses, health
care costs, are coming down; they're not zooming out of sight.
Today, we find our state vastly different from what it was three years
ago. We are no longer stuck in recession. We are creating jobs faster than
any state in the nation. We've entered into a partnership with business to
promote our economy-a bottom-line mentality partnership-Enterprise
Florida, Florida International Affairs Commission, the Florida Sports
Authority, Entertainment Florida.
We ask you that this session you put into law the Government
Accountability Act for the people. So we've simplified the process of
getting a permit. We've speeded up getting an answer from Tallahassee.
We've transferred power and responsibility from government to the people
through school advisory councils, more than 2,600 coalitions of teachers
and parents and business people, 15 juvenile justice commissions with
sheriffs, police officers together with social workers, together with
educators. Now they're the ones that are beginning to call the tune on what
we should do with juveniles-15 health and human service boards, which
we are partnering with who are going to say how we should treat abused
women, battered children, foster care; 11 CHPA boards dominated by the
business sectors, with consumers on there as well, to try to get that low-cost
health insurance for our small businesses; 30 Healthy Start coalitions
covering the entire state trying to start that lifeline for the children of
Florida.
Action now takes place in communities. State government has become
a partner, not a master. HRS was the prime example of a failed, top-heavy,
centralized bureaucracy. And, in three months, Buddy MacKay changed
the way it had operated for 25 years-demonstrated again that he is one
of the finest public servants in Florida today. [applause] More than 300
Tallahassee-based positions eliminated or moved to counties to serve
people in their communities. Now HRS is no longer a monument to what's
wrong in government, it's earned the right to a new name, the Department
of Family Services, a name that reflects a new direction towards
community, away from bureaucracy.
Florida is the leader in the nation in ethics and campaign funding
reforms. The House takes the next step on that road this afternoon by
passing the proposed rule banning campaign contributions during the
session.
As we worked together during the past three years, Florida and its
government has changed. Today our state is different; it's better. But we
have miles to go before we sleep. The most important priority that faces
us this session is protecting our people in their homes, in their
neighborhoods, in their schools.
Just yesterday, Dr. James Adams, Superintendent of Lee County
schools, was gunned down in his office, ending a life that had touched so
many others. I ask you to join with me in a moment of silent prayer for Dr.
Adams and his family. [pause]











JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



There is no simple answer to crime, no single solution. The explosion of
violence and injury and anguish that it's causing require diligence to try
to find a comprehensive solution.
In last year's special session on safe streets, we did not agree on a special
funding source earmarked for criminal justice to pass for a five-year prison
building plan, but we did agree on the number of cells necessary to keep
dangerous criminals locked up for at least 75 percent of their sentences.
My budget proposes that we build space for more than 14,000 additional
prisoners this next year, more than 33,000 spaces over five years to meet
this commitment, this goal.
We know that roughly seven percent of the criminals are responsible for
70 percent-seven percent of the criminals commit 70 percent of the
crimes. These are the worst of the worst. They demonstrate they will not
live within the law. They should not live among us. [applause] After three
convictions for violent crime, I propose that we send these career criminals
to prison for the rest of their lives. [applause] For them, three strikes and
you're in.
Juveniles who commit serious crimes are not involved in child's play and
we won't treat them as children. Those who have chosen the wrong path
time after time will spend a long time in secure, new facilities. I'm
proposing that young offenders starting out on the wrong road have the
opportunity to learn self-discipline in an environment of hard work in
community-based boot camps. That's the kind of tough action that our
law-abiding citizens expect and deserve. But after the boot camp, these
young people will need mentors and support in disciplining their lives,
building their futures on self-esteem and a learned value system.
We have to be honest with our people about the need for a strategy that
will lock up the dangerous criminals while it prevents the at-risk and the
troubled children from becoming the next generation of prison inmates. I
ask you to join with me in building a comprehensive public safety program
that's tough, smart and honest and includes prevention as well as
punishment. [applause]
Last week, the Domestic Violence Task Force that I appointed in
September released its first report. One of the startling revelations tells us
that 35 percent of the women treated in Florida's emergency rooms are
there for injuries related to abuse committed at home. Each of you has a
copy of that report. I believe it's required reading before we act on
recommendations that must be addressed in this session.
Last November we passed a tough gun law that makes sure police can
disarm dangerous juveniles before mischief becomes murder. That
addresses a problem defined by too many school children having a better
chance of being handed a pistol than a diploma. Now, we need a "Safe
Schools Plan" to ensure a safe environment for our teachers to teach and
"our children to learn. Additional school resource officers and security
devices to stop guns and weapons must be provided for our school
campuses. Students who skip school or disrupt classes will not be expelled
to the street to get into more trouble, but they'll be expelled into
alternative schools or classes that are structured to take care of their bad
behavior. Juvenile violence is exploding. The highest increase of violent
crime in our state is from 11 to 13.
At-risk middle schools need better options than being out on the streets
or at home alone after school. We need to keep middle schools open until
eight or nine in the evening and on Saturdays to provide safety, recreation,
tutoring, a hot meal, preventative medical care. Each school could provide
haven for at least 50 of its at-risk students.
Teachers can identify with certainty the children that have the potential
but who, the teachers know, if left in the crisis that they're in, they're going
to be a drop-out or worse. Part of an honest prevention strategy should give
these kids a chance for a productive future. Join me in creating two
educational academies for these kids. Think how much cheaper it is than
creating prisons for them later. [applause] The future of Florida is going
to be determined by our 2 million school children. And to secure that
future, we have to give them a quality education. That means setting higher
standards, measuring for better performance, holding school personnel
accountable. We know there is a direct comparison between the drop-out
rate and our crime rate. Seventy percent of our inmates dropped out. When
we keep kids in school, we fight crime.
Doug Jamerson had outstanding qualifications to become the
Commissioner of Education. [applause] Seventeen years in the classroom,
11 years in the Legislature, but I appointed him because he was the prime

sponsor of the Education Accountability Act, which took power away from
bureaucrats in Tallahassee and put decision-making power into the hands
of parents and teachers. [applause] Now, students not only bring home
their report card, they also bring home this report card that shows how
their school is doing.
The budget recommendations I have made will upgrade our school
libraries, our teacher training and technology. And, as we make schools
safe, we have to help them achieve the highest scholastic goals. We owe
Florida's school children the best education possible. But we owe the
taxpayers the commitment that every tax dollar for education goes to the
classroom, not to increase the bureaucracy. [applause]
The Department of Education should be a resource, not a regulator. I've
asked Doug Jamerson to cut 50 percent out of the bureaucracy of the
Department of Education in personnel, in rules and in regulations. That
amounts to emptying at least five floors of the Florida Education Center.
Let's put our full-service schools teams and our juvenile justice unit in that
space-and the Turlington Building becomes a center of hope, not an ivory
tower. [applause]
And that's just the beginning.
Commissioner Jamerson agrees with me that the Division of Public
Schools should focus on the classroom, not anything else. It's the
classroom, stupid, it's the classroom. [applause] We must take the savings
and pump every one of those dollars into the classrooms. I know that Doug
Jamerson can get this job done, but he's going to need your help. And then
we need to tell every school district that with 50 percent less control from
Tallahassee, they can reduce their bureaucracy at least that much.
[applause]
In the session, we need to continue fundamental lasting reform of our
welfare system. We'll begin by strengthening the requirement that
delinquent parents support the children that they have brought into this
world. Those who abandon the legal responsibility to support their
children should heed our warning. Deadbeat dads are going to pay their
obligations or they're going to face the consequences. [applause] We'll even
post a "Ten Most Wanted List" as we seek to find the worst offenders. And
when we find them, they will pay. [applause] Help us move child support
enforcement to the Department of Revenue. They are in the business of
collecting money. [applause]
Our goals for safe streets, safe schools and safe neighborhoods can only
be realized if our people feel secure in their own homes. It stands to reason
that we should be making it easier for families to survive and children to
thrive. But as we know, the welfare system as it exists today is part of the
problem, not part of the solution. The real victims are the people in the
system who can't escape from it. They want to regain independence, they
want to be employed, but as they try to, we say, "You can't have child
support for your child, you don't get health care anymore." Unfortunately,
a system that should lift them out of welfare assistance is bogging them
down. The safety net has become a spider web.
Last session, with great bipartisan support, we approved two good pilot
projects that will help families to make that transition from welfare to the
work force. Less than two weeks ago, the federal government agreed to be
our partner in that effort by approving our waivers, so now we'll be getting
our family transition projects in Alachua and Escambia counties. We're
going to help welfare recipients with job training, job placement, child care;
and in return their benefits are going to be limited to two years. After that,
they will go to work, or they have to show a very compelling reason why
they can't.
Let's go a step further.
I propose that we completely eliminate the spider web of welfare. Let's
sunset Aid to Families with Dependent Children as it exists today within
five years. I believe this deadline will keep us on track and let the people
of Florida know that we're serious about this reform. To do that, we need
to design a lifeline of services that provide individuals with the help that
they need in the short term to stand on their own in the long term.
This lifeline should provide access to prenatal care for every woman
bringing a child into this world and give every newborn baby a good
beginning. The dollar spent on Healthy Start programs to reach another
30,000 mothers and their babies is a very smart dollar. Healthy Start is one
of our greatest success stories. It's already saved us nearly 15 million dollars
and countless lives. [applause] And with our help, these local coalitions can
meet every child in Florida.











6 JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE

Our lifeline continues with additional pre-kindergarten programs so that
every child enters school ready to learn. It includes 71 additional full-
service schools to provide all of the essential services that students and
their families need together in one spot at the school.
The lifeline that nurtures Florida's first healthy generation should also
reach to our elders. We have secured the necessary waivers from
Washington that will allow us to use Medicaid money to fund long-term
community care. We can do this at a fraction of the cost of nursing home
care. We could have used the money before for the nursing home care. Now
they're going to give us the opportunity to use it for community care, that
care to keep people in their homes with their families. [applause] Very few
public choices are so clearly defined, and I urge you to move swiftly to make
this program a reality for our seniors.
In 1993, we built the foundation for a more efficient and a less expensive
health care system. Let's make 1994 the year that health security becomes
a reality for all of our people. We need the cooperation of the federal
government. I have told both the Congress and the President it's essential
that Florida be given the flexibility in how we spend our current tax dollars.
We have shown that from savings that we can achieve, by providing
Medicaid under managed care, we can provide low-cost health insurance
to more than 1 million of our people.
I hear some voices, some voices that I have heard before, last year and
the year before that, that are saying we're going too fast, we better slow
down, we better take stock to figure out where we are. I don't think any
of those voices are part of the 2 million working heads of households or
their families that do not have coverage today, who are required to go to
the emergency room if they want to have coverage. We can't afford to wait,
we need to move now. [applause] While we have reduced the cost of
insurance right now, because of the actions that we've taken, the number
of our uninsured is still going up.
Over the years, Florida has been populated by immigrants from other
states as well as other countries. Most come here legally in search of a
better life for their families. But there are others, however, whose presence
is in clear violation of the laws of our land. I've tried for many years to force
the federal government to accept its responsibility in this regard. In failing
to enforce our nation's immigration laws, Washington puts a huge burden
on the taxpayers of Florida. It's costing our people nearly 1 billion dollars
a year to provide illegal immigrants living in our state with health care,
housing, education, and in some cases incarceration. I made it clear to the
federal government last week we've had enough. We know we're right and
we'll go to court to affirm our rights. [applause]
For three years now, we've been working to improve Florida's
environmental quality of life. We've committed to our successful
preservation programs: P-2000, CARL, and SWIM. And we want a 100-
mile buffer zone around all of Florida to protect our precious resources
from offshore oil and gas development. These programs are not
impediments to our economic development efforts; they're a vital part of
it.
How can we help Florida's communities overcome the devastating
economic impact of what is now going to be a new round of defense cuts
and closures? The real challenge as we take up this session is to preserve
jobs for our military and our civilian population. So we're asking you to
approve additional incentives for businesses to relocate in Florida, but also
to assist any defense-related business to convert its operation to private
sector economy. It's a cost-effective, time-tested method for keeping us to
have high-value jobs for our state.
We all know that this session is going to be dominated by crime. It is a
year that is divisible by four. It's an election year. I'm running. Most of you
are running. We can spend our time and the people's money by engaging
in demagoguery or posturing, or we can come together and work hard to
produce answers that will help us unravel the tangle of violence which grips
our state.
I've talked about tough, honest solutions. I will join you in being tough.
I ask you to join me in seeking honest answers. There are answers for
punishment. We know that we have to have certainty, not empty threats.
And there are preventative programs that are working in our communities
and in our neighborhoods and in our schools. We need to partner with
them.
The First Lady and I have been going around the state in the last six
weeks, and all of our communities are meeting and working on this



I



E OF REPRESENTATIVES February 8, 1994

program. I'm amazed at the amount of effort that is going on. This in not
something that just you and I are thinking about, and each of them have
part of the answer.
Fifth graders in North County Elementary School in Opa Locka are
participating in a program called "Anger Busters." They are learning how
to properly express themselves when they get mad or upset. You know, a
lot of these kids that are committing these crimes, no one ever told them
that there was some kind of other way. In this school, about four children
a day used to be sent to the principal's office for behavior problems. Since
they've had this program, only four have been sent in total. There are no
guns picked up in that school.
In Kissimmee, I met Amanda Titus, a teenager who was getting off in
the wrong direction. She was turned around with the help of her peers in
a wonderful program called "Teen Court." I visited and watched the "Teen
Court." The only adult there is the judge, and the judge told me
afterwards-who was a circuit judge-the kids were much tougher on the
other kids than they would ever be as they went into their first kind of
problems. Amanda is now a prosecutor and a defender in that program.
She's helping to turn other young lives around. That's the kind of
preventative programs that are out there that we have to partner with.
Amanda is here today, up in the gallery. Amanda, how about you stand up
and let us recognize you. [applause]
In Broward County, Sheriff Ron Cochran introduced me to some boys
and girls that are learning the rewards and responsibilities that come with
being a part of a team with a special program run by the Boys and Girls
Clubs. Together they proudly march in unison in the uniform of so-called
"Devil Dogs." Don't be misled by that name; these kids are all winners, and
eight of them are here today with their sheriff and their sponsors. They are
11 to 16 years of age. They had to earn points to be able to get these
uniforms. Devil Dogs are one of the answers to crime. They've learned how
to salute. I ask you to join me in saluting the Devil Dogs. [applause] The
platoon leader used to be a gang leader. Take a moment before you leave
today, talk to these young men and these young women, and you will see
that there are answers out there.
We know it's not an answer to rob education of the children's lifeline
services or education to fund our criminal justice system. We can build the
cells this year, but we can't fulfill our five-year commitment to operate
those and the other cells that we will need without looking at new revenue
sources in the future.
Even with the wisdom of Solomon, you and I can't solve this problem in
Tallahassee. The family, as you and I knew it, is not there for these kids.
Today, it truly takes the whole tribe to raise a child, so we have to call on
all Floridians for help. We have to tell them that there is no simple answer;
they must be mentors. They must work with these kids. They must help
to assure them of a real future. They must let these young people know that
there is somebody that cares about them, that somebody will share with
them.
We don't have all the answers, but we were elected to lead. Let's just do
it. [applause]
Following his address, Governor Chiles was escorted from the Chamber
by the committee. The members of the Supreme Court and the Lieutenant
Governor and Cabinet were escorted from the Chamber by the Sergeants
at Arms of the Senate and House.
On motion by Senator Kirkpatrick, the Joint Session was dissolved at
12:03 p.m., and the Senators were escorted from the Chamber by the
Senate Sergeant at Arms.

Reconvened
The House was called to order by the Speaker at 12:06 p.m. A quorum
was present.

Speaker's Remarks
Speaker Johnson: Last year was a great year for the Florida
Legislature. We led the nation with health care reform, we provided the
best workers' comp. reform plan in the country and the Florida State
Seminoles won the National Championship. [applause]
Some Qf you probably heard of the fishing trip that Bobby Bowden and
Coach Osborne of the Nebraska Cornhuskers had just prior to the game.
There had been a lot of media hype about the pressures and what it would














be like to win the National Championship. So Coach Bowden and Coach
Osborne decided they would go on a fishing trip so that they could have
some time together and take any of the pressure out of that issue. They
went fishing over around Lake Seminole. As they were casting along the
bank and enjoying the beauty of the North Florida woods, a bear started
raging down the hill toward them. Coach Osborne was very excited, not
knowing what to do, but Coach Bowden knew exactly what to do. He
reached down, grabbed his tennis shoes and started putting them on. And
Coach Osborne said, "Well Bobby, why is it you are putting on those tennis
shoes? Don't you know that you can't possibly outrun the bear?" Coach
Bowden said, "I don't have to outrun the bear, I only have to outrun you."
[laughter]
When we think about many of the issues that we have closing in on us,
there are times that we have to realize that it is our job to stand and fight.
The odds appear to be pretty difficult to undertake at times. There are
other issues that we have had to contend with, that the Members of this
House have shown great courage and great talent. And, I think you have
been an example for other states to follow.
This year, in addition to the many bills and the issues and the budgets
that we will undertake, we are going to do something here in Florida that
I think will be a good example for the nation to follow. While some state
legislative groups have been advised to send letters to their congressional
delegation and demand a hearing, demand an audience, here in Florida our
congressional delegation is coming to see us on a special day that will be
set aside for discussions with them on state and federal issues. As we
consider immigration policies, and as we look at health care reform and
education issues and criminal justice issues and so many of the issues that
don't just stop at the state line, then it is important for Florida to be
communicating very clearly with its congressional delegation.
It's an exciting time for us as a state. Our economy is outperforming the
projections. We have the number one position in the nation on creating new
jobs. We have much to be thankful for.
As we look around the world and see the barriers of trade coming down
with the North American Free Trade Agreement and the GATT
Agreement, the opportunities for our state should be very bright and
promising. And our job will be to make Florida a better place to live.
When we ask the veteran Members, out of all the bills that are
introduced which ones have to pass, you normally hear one answer, and
that's only the appropriations bill. And it will be important for us to
develop a good budget. But this year there are at least two bills that we
need to add to the list of those that must pass. One will be the criminal
justice/juvenile justice package. And we have the task force that so many
of you are working on. I think that the only complaints I've heard is that
Representative Ritchie is not giving anyone a chance to have any idle time.
He has been working them hard and late into the night, and I appreciate
the commitment that you're making to develop a good product.
Representatives Logan and Martinez are very much involved in leading
that effort, in both Democratic and Republican Members there. They are
going to be called upon to bring their best ideas to curbing the crime
problem in Florida. We must also do a better job to advise Floridians of
the progress we've been making over the last several months in this regard,
our commitment during the last session and the special sessions that
followed. In constructing prison beds and planning new programs and
staffing those facilities is an important commitment for curbing that crime
problem. We need to look closely at those statistics to see that our policy
makes sense in the context with what's happening in the streets of Florida
today.
We are going to look at a "three strikes and you're out" plan, but we're
going to develop it in a way that will not lead to geriatric prisons. When
we have inmates in their 60s and 70s and no longer a threat to communities
of Florida, we are not going to pay the high cost of incarceration. We are
going to look at those that are most violent and those that are committing
the most offenses, and that are a threat to your communities and mine, and
we are going to lock those people away that are committing violent crimes.
And for those juvenile offenders who are committing more serious offenses
and heinous crimes, then the punishment should fit the crime. But the
comprehensive package that our task force will develop will not just stop
on the subject of punishment. It will deal with the comprehensive approach
of prevention and punishment. And with our after-school programs, with
our plans for jobs and education as well as criminal justice, we think it will
be an important and balanced approach for this legislative body and for
the state of Florida.

We still have much to do in the area of health care. We have heard those
stories of elder citizens that have to choose between groceries and
medication. And I've had them in my office. I've seen their tears and I've
heard their stories. We have heard of young families that have to wait until
their children are so sick they have to go to an emergency room in order
to receive health care, to receive the services of a doctor. We're not going
to end this session without continuing our commitment in that area.
[applause]
Many of you are aware that a special legislative love of mine has been
the area of education. And it is important for us to continue to reduce the
size of the Department of Education as we move those decisions out to local
government. It's true that this legislative body has said that with
accountability that we're not trying to have all the answers in Tallahassee.
There was a story that I heard about two friends who were walking in
front of the Department of Education building. And one friend asked,
"How many people work in that building anyway?" And the other friend
said, "About half of them." Now, that's not a fair comment toward the
Department of Education; there are many very dedicated men and women
there. But their jobs are changing, they are changing in a way that those
decisions are moving out to school-based management now. With parental
groups being involved there, and if the accountability plan is going to work,
we're going to have to see that the size of the department reflects the new
responsibility of the new role. As we move toward a plan for safe schools,
we'll hear the debate of what's included within that definition. Not just
school resource officers, which are going to be an important part of it, but
those after-school programs and the physical plant and the idea of how to
make those classrooms safe is going to be an important part of our
undertaking during the session.
We certainly mourn the loss of the school superintendent in Lee County.
That tragedy occurred yesterday. We've heard many other tragedies
around the state, from classroom teachers to students who have been
seriously harmed or killed in our public schools in this state.
We're going to have a serious commitment to parental responsibility, and
this is going to be part of our education package and a very important
element. If our public schools are going to succeed, then parents are going
to have to be part of that success. We started last year our commitment
to classroom technology; it was a major priority for the House. And as we
realize how the workplace is changing and the world is more complex, then
our classrooms have to be prepared to deliver a quality education that
reflects the change in the marketplace. Our classroom technology issue will
again be a goal for our Education Committee and for our Appropriations
Committee in the House.
Many people are saying that because it is an election year, they might
not expect quite as much of this legislative body. I want to tell you that the
fact that it is an election year has not diminished my expectations for the
men and women who serve in this Chamber. I think it will be a critical year
for us. I think that you are very worthy of the challenge that lies ahead, and
we have an important start in that process coming up next with the rules
change that will be offered by Representative Wallace. How we conduct our
personal business is an important reflection on how we view the
responsibility of office. But we must always be mindful that our number
one mission is to take care of the people's business. And I am convinced
that this group of people are prepared to do justice to that demand.
Look forward to working with you. Thank you very much. [applause]
Thank you.
I certainly appreciate the able support of my pro tem., Elaine Bloom, and
appreciate my wife, Judi, being with me today.

On motions by Rep. Webster, the rules were waived by the required two-

By Representative Webster:
Amendment 2-Insert the following after the words "political
party": or on behalf of a candidate for the House of Representatives
-was taken up and adopted.



THE SPEAKER IN THE CHAIR



On motion by Rep. Wallace, the rules were waived and the following
questions and answers were ordered spread upon the Journal, in order to
establish legislative intent:
Rep. Mackenzie: Can a Member raise funds for another candidate?
Rep. Wallace:, I want the Members to pay attention, if they would,
to the intent statement which is on their desk because in light of the
adoption of the amendment by Representative Webster the answer to this
question has changed. The answer to it now is as follows: the Member may
not raise funds for another candidate to the House of Representatives
whether that candidate is a Member of the House or a non-Member
candidate for election to the House.
Speaker Johnson: Continue.
Rep. Mackenzie: Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Wallace, is there an
exception for special elections?
Rep. Wallace: No. A Member running for another office to be filled
by special election cannot solicit or accept funds during the sixty-day
regular session.
Rep. Mackenzie: Mr. Wallace, could I be a host for a fund-raising
event for a political party?
Rep. Wallace: No. Being a host for a fund-raising event for a political
party is soliciting or asking for contributions on behalf of the party, which
is prohibited by the proposed rule.
Rep. Mackenzie: Can I attend a fund-raising event for a political
party?
Rep. Wallace: Yes. The mere attendance at a fund-raising event for
a political party is not a solicitation of funds.
Rep. Mackenzie: Can I be a speaker or be honored at a fund-raising
event for a political party?
Rep. Wallace: Yes. The mere speaking at a fund-raising event for a
political party or being honored is not a solicitation of funds. However, the
Member should not allow his or her name to be used by a political party
in a manner which would suggest that the Member is asking for
contributions on behalf of the party.
Rep. Mackenzie: Can I sell tickets to a fund-raising event for a
political party?
Rep. Wallace: No. This is soliciting funds for a political party which
is prohibited during the sixty-day regular session.
Rep. Mackenzie: Does this rule apply to all candidates?
Rep. Wallace: No. This is a rule of the House of Representatives. It
only applies to Members of the House. The Florida Supreme Court in the
Dodd decision suggested that a rule which applied only to House Members
would be constitutionally permissible if narrowly tailored.
Rep. Mackenzie: Would this rule prohibit a political party from
raising money during session?
Rep. Wallace: No. The rule only applies to Members of the House.
A political party is restricted by this rule only to the extent that Members
may not solicit or accept contributions on behalf of the political party
during the sixty-day regular session.
Rep. Mackenzie: Can my campaign treasurer or another person
solicit or accept contributions on my behalf during session?
Rep. Wallace: No. No one representing the Member may solicit or
accept campaign contributions for the Member's own campaign. This
includes any person employed by or authorized by you. You may not ask
someone, including another Member or your House staff, to solicit on your
behalf. On the other hand, organizations which you do not control are not
bound by the House Rule.
Rep. Mackenzie: Some Members have asked about soliciting money
for ballot initiatives or soliciting money for charitable purposes. Is this
prohibited by the rule?
Rep. Wallace: No. This rule only prohibits soliciting or accepting
contributions for the Member's own campaign or for a political party.
Rep. Mackenzie: It has come to my attention that several Members,
both Republicans and Democrats, have accepted campaign contributions
as late as yesterday. What happens to those contributions?



February 8, 1994



8











JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Rep. Wallace: Under the rule, the Members may keep the
contributions which were accepted yesterday. Section 106.05, Florida
Statutes, gives the Member five days to deposit those contributions into
a campaign account.
Rep. Mackenzie: Again, several Members have expressed concern to
me about whether or not, under the rule, they may ask persons for their
support during their campaign. What exactly does it mean to solicit a
contribution?
Rep. Wallace: The proposed rule does not prohibit a Member from
asking persons to support the Member's campaign. For instance, the
Member may ask for endorsements. The rule does prohibit the Member
from asking for contributions for the campaign during the regular
legislative session.
Rep. Mackenzie: Several Members have mentioned that they are
going to be a speaker or an honoree at a party event which has already been
scheduled and the tickets or the invitations have already been printed
using the Member's name. Is the Member going to be in violation of the
rule?
Rep. Wallace: What a Member has already done prior to the
adoption of this rule cannot form the basis for a violation of the rule which
we are adopting today.
Rep. Mackenzie: Will a relative of the Member be able to give money
to the Member during session?
Rep. Wallace: A relative may not give a contribution during session.
A gift which is intended to be used in the campaign would also constitute
a campaign contribution and would therefore also be prohibited. Of course,
gifts from relatives which are not campaign-related are not regulated by
the Florida law or this rule.
On motion by Rep. Wallace, the above report, as amended, was adopted.

E OF REPRESENTATIVES February 8, 1994

(e) Whenever the Speaker, Speaker pro tempore, Majority Leader,
Minority Leader or other Member has custody of any legislative record he
shall, at the expiration of his term of office, deliver to his successor or, if
there be none, to the Clerk all legislative records maintained by him in the
transaction of his official business. Whenever a standing or select
committee or subcommittee is abolished or expires, the legislative records
maintained on behalf of such standing or select committee or
subcommittee shall be transferred by the committee secretary to the
committee secretary of the standing or select committee or subcommittee
directed by the Speaker to assume the jurisdiction of the former
committee. If no committee is to assume the jurisdiction of the former
committee, the committee secretary shall transfer the legislative records
kept or received on behalf of'the standing or select committee or
subcommittee to the Clerk for appropriate disposition.
(f) Biennially, the Speaker, Speaker pro tempore, Majority Leader,
Minority Leader and Clerk, and each committee secretary, may transfer
such legislative records which are required by these Rules to be created,
which are of vital, permanent or archival value, which are not needed in
the transaction of current business, or which have sufficient
administrative, legal or fiscal significance to warrant their retention, to the
Legislative Library Division of the Joint Legislative Management
Committee for transfer to the Division of Library and Information Services
of the Department of State for retention in accordance with law.
(g) The Clerk, with the approval of the Speaker, shall establish a
schedule of reasonable and appropriate fees for copies of legislative records
and documents; except there shall be no charge for a single copy of any
individual, separately obtained bill, other than a general appropriations
bill, or staff analysis or other record required by these Rules to be created.
Such schedule shall be based upon the actual cost of duplication of the
record and shall include the material and supplies used to duplicate the
record but not the labor cost or overhead cost associated with such
duplication. If the nature or cost of records requested to be inspected,
examined, or copied is such as to require extensive use of information
technology resources or extensive clerical or supervisory assistance by
employees of the House, or both, the Clerk may impose a special service
charge in addition to the actual cost of duplication. Such a special service
charge shall be based on the cost incurred for the extensive use of
information technology resources or the labor cost of employees providing
the service that is actually incurred by the House or attributable to the
House for the clerical and supervisory assistance required, or both.

A motion for reconsideration shall be treated in the following manner:
(a) When a question has been decided by a subcommittee, any member
voting with the prevailing side or any member, when the vote was a tie or
by voice, may move for reconsideration instanter or leave the motion
pending. By a two-thirds vote, the subcommittee may take up for
immediate disposition any motion to reconsider left pending. The motion
to reconsider may be made at any time during the same meeting prior to
the adoption of a motion to rise or to the subcommittee's rising without
motion upon the time of adjournment having arrived.
(b) A motion to reconsider having been made and left pending, the
motion shall be a special and continuing order of business for the next
succeeding subcommittee meeting and, unless considered at that meeting
on the request of any member of the subcommittee, shall be deemed
abandoned and the subcommittee secretary shall forthwith report the bill
and the action to the parent committee.
(c) A motion to reconsider a collateral matter must be disposed of
during the course of consideration of the main subject to which it is related.
(d) If the subcommittee shall refuse to reconsider or, upon
reconsideration, shall confirm its prior decision, no further motion to
reconsider shall be in order except upon unanimous consent of the
subcommittee members present.
(e) During the last five legislative days of a regular session or at any
time during an extended or special session, the motion to reconsider shall
be disposed of when made.
(f) If no motion is made at the meeting when a bill has been considered
and decided, the subcommittee secretary shall forthwith report the bill to
the parent committee for its consideration.
6.50-Requirements for Reporting
It shall be the duty of subcommittees, subject to Rule 6.53, to report
action upon matters referred to them by the parent standing committee.
A subcommittee shall report all bills either (1) favorably, (2) favorably with
subcommittee amendmentss, (3) favorably with subcommittee substitute,
or (4) unfavorably. A motion to lay a bill "on the table" shall be construed
as a motion to report the bill unfavorably.
All subcommittee reports shall be signed by the chairman or, in his
absence, the temporary presiding officer, and shall be made on forms
prescribed by the Clerk of the House. Subcommittee reports shall
accompany the bill when transmitted to the parent committee and then to
the Clerk of the House as a permanent record.



6.51-Information in Report
Each report of a subcommittee must set forth the identifying number of
the bill; and if amendments are proposed by the subcommittee, the words
"with amendments" shall follow the identifying number. Subcommittee
amendments shall be produced on computer on the prescribed forms,
numbered serially with any title amendment last, and attached to the bill.
Subcommittee reports shall also reflect (1) the time and place of the
meeting at which the action was taken, (2) the name and address of each
person addressing the subcommittee relative to the bill and, if an agent,
the interest represented, and (3) the vote of each member of the
subcommittee on the motion to report the bill.
6.52-Subcommittee Substitute
A subcommittee may, in reporting a bill to the parent standing
committee, draft a new bill, embracing the same general subject matter, to
be returned to the parent standing committee with the recommendation
that the substitute be considered in lieu of the original bill. The substitute
bill must be accompanied by the original bill referred to the subcommittee
and returned to the parent standing committee in the same manner as the
favorable reporting of any other bill.
6.53-Consideration of Subcommittee Reports
(a) A bill when reported by a subcommittee shall be transmitted to the
parent committee. The chairman of the parent committee shall agenda the
bill with the subcommittee report for a meeting of the parent committee
consistent with time and notice requirements.

Unfavorable Reports
(b) A bill reported unfavorably by a subcommittee shall appear on the
agenda for the next meeting of the parent committee following the
unfavorable vote of the subcommittee, consistent with time and notice
requirements. A bill reported unfavorably by a subcommittee shall be laid
upon the table and shall be reported unfavorably to the Clerk following the
next meeting of the parent committee after the unfavorable report of the
subcommittee, unless a member of the parent committee, at such meeting,
makes a motion, which shall be decided without debate, to take the bill
from the table. A two-thirds majority vote of the membership of the parent
committee shall be required to take the bill from the table. If the bill that
previously had been reported unfavorably by a subcommittee is taken from
the table, the parent committee shall take up the bill with debate limited
to members of the committee and the sponsor. However, by a two-thirds
majority vote of the members of the parent committee, the bill may receive
a hearing de novo and witnesses shall be permitted to testify.
