As a result of this review, we certify the need for thirteen circuit court Criminal filings were up in 1994 for the first time since 1989, and the
judges, two county court judges, and no additional appellate court judges, gradual increase in this category is forecast to continue in 1995. Juvenile

The criteria for certification of the need for additional judges in the
district courts of appeal are set forth in rule 2.035(b)(2), Florida Rules of
Judicial Administration. The Court did not receive any requests for
additional judges from any of these courts, despite the fact that Florida's
intermediate appellate courts all exceed the established threshold of 250
appellate filings per judge.
The district courts of appeal have addressed workload pressures by
improving internal operating procedures, using central legal research staff,
relying on a full range of computerized applications, and assigning senior
judges on a temporary basis. We are heartened by their efforts and further
encourage these courts to develop alternative and creative means to
efficiently and fairly hear the cases brought before them. One such means
proposed for use in the First District Court of Appeal this year is the
appellate pre-briefing conference program, involving mediation and case
management. We recommend that the Florida Legislature fund this
program as well as increase the funds for temporary assignment of senior
judges, since both alternatives are less expensive than adding more
appellate judgeships. Based upon the lack of requests, we do not certify any
additional judicial positions for the district courts of appeal.
The criteria for certification of the need for judges in the trial courts are
set forth in rule 2.035(b)(1), Florida Rules of Judicial Administration. As
with past certification orders, 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.
In addition to those factors prescribed in rule 2.035, Florida Rules of
Judicial Administration, other criteria we considered included the
availability and manner of employment of supplemental hearing resources
furnished by the counties (civil traffic infraction hearing officers, child
support enforcement hearing officers, and general or special masters); the
use of county and senior judges on temporary assignment; reliance on
mediation and arbitration to resolve cases; and special local circumstances
that affect case handling.
We find it necessary to certify thirteen new circuit court judges for fiscal
year 1995-96: one additional circuit court judge each for the Fifth, Sixth,
Seventh, Tenth, Fourteenth, Seventeenth, Eighteenth, and Twentieth
judicial circuits; two additional circuit court judges for the Eleventh
Judicial Circuit; and three additional circuit court judges for the Ninth
Judicial Circuit.
While the circuit courts experienced a relatively flat level of filings from
1991 through 1993, 1994 yielded increases in almost every category of case.



In the past, when a court had or was projected to have 1,865 circuit filings
per judge, this Court determined there was a presumptive need for
additional judicial resources. Courts at this level of filings were deemed to
be working above capacity. Indeed, changes in the law in recent years which
necessitated more hearings for various types of cases, mandated priority
handling for certain matters, and required judges to render written
findings of fact and conclusions of law have made the cases more involved
and labor intensive than when the 1,865 filings per judge threshold was
adopted in 1986. Thus, we have been compelled to give careful
consideration to the necessity for additional judgeships not only for courts
near or above the threshold, but also for courts that are marginally below
the standard as well. The certification of need for additional judges for the
Sixth, Eleventh, Seventeenth, and Eighteenth judicial circuits, which fall
in the latter category, were based on examination of the mix of cases,
pending case inventories, dispositional data, geographical constraints, and
related factors unique to each requesting court.
The Court gave the request of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit a
particularly close review because of the number of judges requested and the
fact that the 1995 forecast of case filings for that circuit is somewhat below
the threshold. Much of our attention focused on the criminal divisions of
that circuit which were said to be in need of substantial assistance. Both
the Attorney General and the State Attorney for the Eleventh Judicial
Circuit have asserted that the shortage of circuit judges to handle criminal
trials has caused a backlog in the prosecution of major criminal cases.
Because several views on the extent of need for additional judges had
been expressed to the Court, the Chief Justice and the State Courts
Administrator met with the judicial leadership and staff of the Eleventh
Judicial Circuit. Supplemental data was reviewed, including information
on the crime problem in Dade County; the workload, organization, and
operating procedures of the criminal division; the extent and impact of
foreign language interpreters; the allocation of judges among other
divisions of the circuit court; and resource and other issues related to the
impact of law enforcement, prosecution, and criminal defense functions on
the court. While we were informed there was a serious shortage of judges,
we were also advised that it was likely that the backlog could be
significantly reduced if temporary judicial help could be made available.
As a consequence of this discussion, we have already authorized additional
senior judge days for specific assignment to the criminal division in the
Eleventh Judicial Circuit as a component for the criminal court strike force
for the period of March 1, 1995, through June 30, 1995.
We have concluded to certify the need for two permanent judgeships at
this time. However, we strongly recommend that the Legislature
substantially increase our allotment of senior judge days in order that we
can continue this strike force concept in the next fiscal year. The State
Courts System will file a supplemental budget request which will allow the
assignment of the equivalent of between two and three additional full-time
senior judges to the Dade County criminal division for up to a year.
The Court views the employment of the criminal case strike force
concept as experimental. However, we believe it to be a less expensive
response to what may only be a temporary problem. The supplemental
budget request for strike force resources, which will include senior judges
and necessary support staff, would also permit its extension to one or two
other circuits that may have particular problems with criminal dockets.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE]



Through the employment of two new judges and the additional senior
judges, together with the reassignment of judges from other divisions or the
county court as may be deemed advisable to maximize the court's response
to its needs in the criminal area, we are hopeful that much of the current
workload pressure will be eliminated. Needless to say, we will continue to
analyze the needs of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit in the 1996 certification
process.
As in circuit court, the 1994 caseloads in the county courts increased,
reversing a four-year downward trend. This is largely attributable to
modest growth in criminal and civil filings. Criminal traffic filings were up
slightly, as were DUI filings.
In evaluating the need for additional county court judges, 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. Similar to the application
of the circuit court threshold, we have applied the same methodology to
county courts. County courts with caseload forecasts near or exceeding
6,114 filings per judge are presumed to be operating at or above capacity.
All of the counties for which a certification of need is made are projected
to exceed the 6,114 threshold.
It is clear to this Court that adding judges alone will not ensure increased
efficiency in the Florida State Courts System. This conclusion is supported
by our evaluation of judicial workload in the twenty judicial circuits, the
circumstances in the Eleventh Judicial Circuit, and the initial progress of
our family court initiative. Judges cannot efficiently and effectively
manage caseloads without the benefit of adequate, trained support staff.
The availability of law clerks, case managers, and other support personnel,
as well as automation and other resources, are essential to the ability of
Florida's courts to effectively address caseload pressures on a continuing
basis. We urge the Florida Legislature to provide the Judicial Branch with
the resources necessary to carry out its constitutional function.
Full funding of the requests certified in this opinion is absolutely
essential if Florida's courts are to fulfill their constitutional mandate to try
cases in a fair, impartial, and timely manner. Moreover, the Florida
Legislature is encouraged to authorize the judgeships certified as necessary
herein, effective September 1, 1995, in order that the new judges are
available as soon as possible.
It is so ordered.

Original Proceeding Certification of Need for Additional Judges
Vetoed Bills
The following veto message was received:
The Honorable Peter Rudy Wallace March 3, 1995
Speaker, House of Representatives
Dear Mr. Speaker:
In compliance with the provisions of Article III, Section 8(b) of the State
Constitution, I am transmitting to you for consideration of the House the
following bill, 1994 Regular Session, with the Governor's objections
attached thereto:
House Bill No. 2221 (Chapter 94-357, Laws of Florida).
We understand that the original law will be returned to this office following
any legislative action which may be taken on the vetoed portions.
Sincerely,
Sandra B. Mortham
Secretary of State



June 16, 1994



The Honorable Jim Smith
Secretary of State



Dear Secretary Smith:
By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under the provisions
of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of the State of Florida, I do
hereby withhold my approval of portions of House Bill 2221, enacted
during the 96th Session of the Legislature since Statehood in 1845, during
the Regular Session of 1994, and entitled:



March 7, 1995



is hereby vetoed. The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services
was directed by the 1991 Legislature to establish a European marketing
assessment to eliminate the need for future General Revenue funding.
Legislative intent stated that the 1991 appropriation was the last year for
General Revenue funds.



E OF REPRESENTATIVES 3

"An act making appropriations; providing moneys for the annual
period beginning July 1, 1994, and ending June 30, 1995, to pay
salaries, and other expenses, capital outlay buildings, and other
improvements, and for other specified purposes of the various agencies
of State government; providing an effective date."
I have reviewed House Bill 2221, the General Appropriations Act. In large
measure, it follows the recommendations I made to the Legislature last
December. It focuses on programs that address Florida's most crucial needs
including, the incarceration of violent offenders, detention and
rehabilitation of young offenders, improved education and the accessibility
of health care services. It does so, as I recommended, without new taxes.
In December, I recommended that we build space for more than 14,000
additional prisoners next year and more than 33,000 spaces over five years.
This budget acts on those recommendations and continues my
recommended Safe Streets initiative. It funds a construction plan that will
create space to lock up another 17,033 inmates. We can now be sure that
the early release program will be eliminated entirely next year.
This budget also takes significant steps towards building a juvenile justice
system that will provide the foundation for a safer Florida, now and in the
years to come. It funds my recommendations for mental health and
substance abuse services. It provides much needed money for the detention
and commitment of over 2,000 juveniles, including for the first time
juvenile academies. Perhaps as important, it begins the funding of my
proposed Children's Lifeline which emphasizes responsible support for
those who need it as a way of preventing problems before they occur.
My Budget Recommendations aimed to make Florida's schools a safer
place, more responsive to local concerns, and better equipped to handle the
demands of an increasingly complex world. The Legislature has acted on
each of these priorities. This budget provides funds for additional security
purposes as part of the Safe Schools/Safe streets package and puts
increased emphasis on school technology as determined by the school
advisory councils.
The Legislature has also continued the State's commitment to the
environment. It provides funding for the fifth series of Preservation 2000
Land Acquisition bonds, the State's unprecedented initiative to preserve
its natural heritage. It continues the funding for Surface Water
Improvement to assist water management districts in their effort to clean
and maintain the State's water bodies. It provides much needed assistance
to beach renourishment efforts.
In short, this budget accomplishes much for Florida. It has done so in a
responsible manner. While funding expanded efforts in areas such as
corrections and education, it also implemented my recommendations to
eliminate hundreds of positions that were no longer needed in State
government. It continues and expands the use of private sector contracts
to provide services as inexpensively as possible. It funds a number of efforts
that will improve the efficiency of our operations, ranging from the
provision of a Statewide Innovation Fund and improved uses of technology
to the transfer of Child Support Enforcement to the Department of
Revenue.
For all its merits, however, this budget falls short in a number of areas. I
am exercising my constitutional right to line-item veto those portions.
Proviso language following Specific Appropriation 105, on page 17
appropriating $400,000 from the General Revenue Fund for Viticulture
promotion is hereby vetoed. General revenue support for the program did
not go through the normal legislative budget process and would serve only
a specialized segment of the agriculture industry. Funding this project
would circumvent the review procedure for determining the need for State
funds. This could set a precedent for large public expenditures to private
industries without sufficient evidence that such expenditures would
successfully contribute to their economic improvement.
"From General Revenue funds in Specific Appropriation 105,
allocations are to be made in equal amounts to certified Florida farm
wineries for the marketing and promotion of Florida wines and grape
products pursuant to Chapter 599.004, Florida Statutes."

I hereby veto proviso language following Specific Appropriation 399 on
page 53 appropriating $100,000 from the General Revenue Fund. This item
did not go through the normal legislative budget request process. The
College Reach Out program is designed to encourage disadvantaged middle
school and high school students to attend college. The proviso language
establishes a program, however well-intended, unrelated to this purpose.
As important, the prospects of the program established by the proviso
language have not been thoroughly analyzed.
"From the funds provided in Specific Appropriation 399, $100,000
shall be provided to the Office of Business and Citizen Partnerships
to produce, capitalize and distribute a series of educational materials,
including videos, pamphlets, teaching guides and other forms of
medium, to be utilized in the school districts of Florida for the purpose
of educating the state's school children at levels K-9 to deter them
from becoming participants in the juvenile justice system. Such funds
shall be administered by the Office of Business and Citizen
Partnerships within the Department of Education and shall be
matched on a one to one basis by private monetary or in-kind
donations. The Office shall contract with a private or non-profit entity
to secure such private dollars, and shall assist to identify other
privately provided resources for the production and distribution of the
educational tools. Excess proceeds, if any, from this effort shall
initially be utilized to reimburse the State for its contribution and any
remaining proceeds thereafter shall be used for a grant program
administered by the Office of Business and Citizen Partnerships to
qualified organizations throughout the state to support their
respective crime prevention programs."
Specific Appropriation 475B on page 70 appropriating $205,000 from the
General Revenue Fund to establish an institute at Edward Waters College
to promote the diversity and contributions of African-Americans to the
historical, cultural, and industrial growth of the City of Jacksonville is
hereby vetoed. This item was not in the agency budget request. This
appropriation is inconsistent with current policy not to create state
supported institutes at private postsecondary institutions.

I hereby veto portions of proviso language following appropriation 574A on
page 102 appropriating $141,000 from the General Revenue Fund to
provide funding for the Center for Employee Relations and Law. This item
did not go through the appropriate legislative budget request process.
Funding for this Center was eliminated by Florida State University in
1993-94 as part of a legislative policy to reduce funding to lower priority
Institutes and Centers. This policy should be continued pending a
comprehensive evaluation by the Board of Regents.

I hereby veto portions of proviso language following appropriation 574A on
page 103 appropriating $200,000 from the General Revenue Fund to
provide funding for the Building Construction Research and Continuing
Education Program. This item did not go through the appropriate
legislative budget request process. Pursuant to Section 489.109(3), Florida
Statutes, this program was established as a self-supporting educational
program directed specifically to research or continuing education related
to the building construction industry. A user fee is authorized in statute
for this purpose and adjustments in funding for this program are more
appropriately handled by revisions to the fee structure. Such fees are the
appropriate source of funding for this program and not General Revenue.

Specific Appropriation 663A and the associated proviso language on pages
125 and 126 appropriating $500,000 from the Pollution Recovery Trust
Fund for Mosquito Research are hereby vetoed. This appropriation was
not included in the agency's legislative budget request. Despite the value
of mosquito research, the Pollution Recovery Trust Fund is an



inappropriate funding source. The purpose of this fund is to provide a
source of revenue for environmental restoration and mitigation projects.

and Consumer Services which shall include representatives of the two
laboratories, at least two local mosquito control programs, and the
Bureau of Entomology, Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services. For the purpose of contract administration, the Executive
Office of the Governor may transfer this appropriation to the
Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services."
Specific Appropriation 1888 and accompanying proviso on page 290
appropriating $5,314,602 from the General Revenue Fund for transfer to
the Local Government Half Cent Sales Tax Clearing Trust Fund are
hereby vetoed. Proviso states that if HB 2047 becomes law, this
appropriation will be placed in reserve. HB 2047 became law, Chapter
94-245, making this appropriation unnecessary. The new law provides for
distribution directly from the General Revenue Fund to local governments,
which eliminates the need for an appropriation to the Clearing Trust Fund.
"1888 SPECIAL CATEGORIES
TRANSFER TO LOCAL GOVERNMENT HALF CENT
SALES TAX CLEARING TRUST FUND
FROM GENERAL REVENUE FUND ..... $5,314,602"
Contingent upon HB 2047 or similar legislation becoming law, the
Executive Office of the Governor shall place funds in Specific
Appropriation 1888 in reserve."
Specific Appropriation 2016A on page 334 appropriating $292,546 from the
Supervision Trust Fund for the West Palm Beach Regional Service Center
is hereby vetoed. The Department of Management Services will be able to
begin planning and design for the service center from an existing
appropriation. This additional appropriation is unnecessary and is funded
from an inappropriate funding source that could have a negative impact
on statewide rent payments and bonding requirements.
"2016A FIXED CAPITAL OUTLAY

FROM SUPERVISION TRUST FUND. ..... $292,546"
I hereby veto a portion of proviso language following Appropriation 2069
on page 345 appropriating $112,500 from the Hurricane Andrew Recovery
and Rebuilding Trust Fund to establish a permanent vocational training
and job placement service at Garces Commercial College. Hurricane
Andrew Recovery and Rebuilding Trust Funds are non-recurring and
inappropriate to begin a new program. This use of non-recurring dollars to
establish a program is inconsistent with current policy not to create state
supported programs at private postsecondary institutions.
"Garces Commercial College ....................... $112,500"
I hereby veto portions of proviso language following Specific Appropriation
2071 on page 348 appropriating $150,000 from the Hurricane Andrew
Recovery and Rebuilding Trust Fund for the City of Coral Gables. While
the city's proposal to equip the War Memorial Youth Center with
hurricane shutters allowing it to serve as a post-hurricane emergency and
distribution center has merit, this project is to mitigate damages from
future disasters and is not directly associated with relief, recovery or
rebuilding resulting from Hurricane Andrew.
"Coral Gables, City of .................. .... . . . $150,000"
I hereby veto portions of proviso language following Appropriation 2071 on
page 349 appropriating $90,360 from the Hurricane Andrew Recovery and



Rebuilding Trust Fund for the City of Miami. The city estimated damages
to Monty Trainer's Marina at $820,000 and received an appropriation in

this amount during FY 1993-94. This request for additional funding due
to cost overruns is not a high priority in comparison with the other needs
of those in the hurricane affected area. In addition, this facility is utilized
by a commercial, for-profit enterprise which generates revenue for the city,
which will help the city recoup these additional costs.
"Miami, City of .................................. $90,360"
I hereby veto portions of proviso language following Appropriation 2071 on
page 349 appropriating $50,000 to the City of Virginia Gardens from the
Hurricane Andrew Recovery and Rebuilding Trust Fund for small city
assistance. Officials from the City of Virginia Gardens did not request this
appropriation and have indicated that they do not want to apply for these
funds.
"Virginia Gardens, City of ................... ..... $50,000"
I hereby veto a portion of proviso language following appropriation 2071
on page 349 appropriating $270,000 from the Hurricane Andrew Recovery
and Rebuilding Trust Fund to establish an academic program contract in
motion pictures at the University of Miami School of Communication.
Hurricane Andrew Recovery and Rebuilding Trust Funds are non-
recurring and inappropriate to begin a new program. This use of non-
recurring dollars to establish a program is inconsistent with current policy
not to create state supported programs at private postsecondary
institutions.
"University of Miami School of Comm. .............. $270,000"
The portions of House Bill 2221 which are set forth herein with my
objections are hereby vetoed, and all other portions of House Bill 2221 are

In re: JOHN REITZAMMER



January 11, 1995



CONSENT DECREE
COMES NOW, the Probable Cause Panel and Mr. John Reitzammer
pursuant to Rule 13.8(c)(2)c. and 13.8(g), Rules of the Florida House of
Representatives (1994), and enters this consent decree.



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



' 14 p. i z,)













INTRODUCTION
1. The Speaker, Bolley L. Johnson, having received a copy of a
complaint dated May 1, 1994, and a request dated May 31, 1994, from
Representative Peter Wallace, Chairman of the Committee on Rules &
Calendar, regarding Mr. John Reitzammer, appointed a Probable Cause
Panel pursuant to Rule 13.8(b)(1), Rules of the Florida House of
Representatives.
2. The allegations contained in the complaint submitted to the
Chairman of the Committee on Rules & Calendar are that Mr. Reitzammer
was not registered as a lobbyist in the records of the Office of Legislative
Lobbying during 1992, 1993 or 1994.
3. The complaint also alleges that during the 1992 and 1993 legislative
sessions Mr. Reitzammer appeared before committees of the Legislature
on behalf of legislation to create a direct support organization now known
as the Florida Entertainment Commission and that during the 1992 and
1993 legislative sessions Mr. Reitzammer appeared before committees of
the Florida Legislature on behalf of the Department of Commerce on issues
related to the Florida Film and Television Investment Trust Fund.
4. The complaint further alleges that, during the 1994 session,
Mr. Reitzammer, acting on behalf of the Florida Entertainment
Commission, sought to persuade the Legislature to act favorably to
approve funding for the Florida Entertainment Commission, authored an
amendment to legislation that authorized funding for the Florida
Entertainment Commission for fiscal year 1993-94, sought to persuade the
Legislature to revise a sales tax exemption for the film and television
industries, and sought funds for an incentive for the relocation to Florida
of the production of a television series.
FINDINGS OF FACT
1. At the present time, Mr. Reitzammer is the executive director of the
Florida Entertainment Commission.
2. Mr. Reitzammer has been executive director of the Florida
Entertainment Commission since October 1, 1993. He was appointed to
this position by the Board of Directors of the Florida Entertainment
Commission on September 11, 1993. This position is a paid position and
one of the specified duties of the executive director is to serve as the
Commission's liaison to the Florida Legislature and other governmental
entities.
3. The Florida Entertainment Commission is a not-for-profit
corporation formed pursuant to the provisions of section 20.17, Florida
Statutes, as a direct support organization "to assist the [D]epartment [of
Commerce] in the promotion and development of the motion picture,
television, video, recording, and related entertainment industries."
S. 20.17(3), Florida Statutes.
4. Prior to his appointment as executive director, Mr. Reitzammer
served as the volunteer state "film commissioner" by appointment of
Governor Lawton Chiles. He served in this capacity from June 1991 until
December 31, 1993. Mr. Reitzammer served as both executive director of
the Florida Film Commission and as volunteer "film commissioner" from
October 1, 1993 until December 31, 1993. Mr. Reitzammer's expenses as
"film commissioner" were paid from funds appropriated to the Executive
Office of the Governor.
5. Mr. Reitzammer appeared before the Subcommittee on Tourism,
Historical & Cultural Resources of the Committee on Tourism & Economic
Development at its meeting on February 15, 1994. The appearance card
filed by Mr. Reitzammer for his appearance before the Subcommittee
indicated that he was appearing on behalf of the Florida Entertainment
Commission and that he was not a registered lobbyist.
6. Mr. Reitzammer, as Executive Director of the Florida Film
Comlissioan, authored a letter dated April 12, 1994, to Representative
Shirley Brown, a member of the Commission, which detailed alternative
solutions to a problem with funding for the Commission. Two of the three
alternatives required legislative action.
7. Records in the Office of Lobbyist Registration at the Joint
Li:eisla~ivi Mnagei nt. Committee do not reflect that Mr. Reitzammer
was a registered lobbyist at the time of his appearance before the
Subcommittee on Tourism, Historical & Cultural Resources on February
15, 1994 or at the time the letter to Representative Brown was sent.



8. Mr. Reitnammer and the Probable Cause Panel agree that his
appearance before the Subcommittee on Tourism, Historical & Cultural



19



Resources of the Committee on Tourism & Economic Development on
February 15, 1994, on behalf of the Florida Entertainment Commission,
and his letter to Representative Brown constituted "lobbying" within the
meaning of Joint Rule 1.1(2)(c) as those activities constituted an attempt
"to influence legislative action . through oral or written
communication."
9. Further, Mr. Reitzammer and the Probable Cause Panel agree that,
given Mr. Reitzammer's duties as executive director of the Florida
Entertainment Commission, he is a lobbyist within the meaning of Joint
Rule 1.1(2)(d) as he is "a person who is principally employed for
governmental affairs by another person . "; to wit: the Florida
Entertainment Commission. Joint Rule 1.1(2)(d) provides that
principallyly employed for governmental affairs" means that one of the
principal and most significant responsibilities of the employee to the
employer is overseeing the employer's various relationships with
government or representing the employer in its contacts with government.
Mr. Reitzammer and the Panel agree that one of Mr. Reitzammer's
principal and most significant responsibilities to his employer, the Florida
Entertainment Commission, is overseeing the Commission's relationships
with government and representing the Florida Entertainment Commission
in its contacts with government.
10. Mr. Reitzammer and the Panel further agree that Mr. Reitzammer
was not registered as a lobbyist and had not paid the appropriate fees as
required pursuant to Joint Rule 1 for the period from October 1, 1993 until
December 31, 1994.
11. Section 2 of HCR 67 D, which was passed by the Florida House of
Representatives and the Florida Senate on November 9, 1993, provided
that previously paid lobbyist registration fees for the period July 1, 1993
through June 30, 1994, would continue to be valid for such period. In
Mr. Reitzammer's case, such fees for representing the Florida
Entertainment Commission in this period would have been $100 under
Joint Rule 1. Further, section 2 of HCR 67 D provided that lobbyist
registration fees could be renewed for the period from July 1, 1994 through
December 31, 1994, at a rate equal to one-half the rate otherwise applicable
for new registrations. If Mr. Reitzammer had renewed a lobbyist
registration for the period July 1, 1994 through December 31, 1994, his fees
for this later period of time would have been an additional $50.
Alternatively, if Mr. Reitzammer initially registered as a lobbyist on
January 1, 1994, for calendar year 1994, his lobbyist registration fee,
pursuant to Section 2 of HCR 67 D would have been $100 to register to
lobby on behalf of the Florida Entertainment Commission.
12. The parties, based on the above stipulated facts, believe that it is
in the best interest of all concerned to reach a prompt and fair resolution
of the issues without the cost, time and expenditures of resources to hold
hearings in this matter and to reach a resolution.
13. As a result of this settlement, Mr. Reitzammer waives any rights he
may have had to a hearing on this matter regarding whether his conduct
violated Rule 13 of the Florida House of Representatives and Joint Rule 1
of the Rules of the Florida Senate and Florida House of Representatives,
and, if so, what penalties could be assessed.
14. Mr. Reitzammer has agreed to the entry of the following proposed
order.
PROPOSED ORDER
The facts, as set forth above and stipulated to between the Probable
Cause Panel and Mr. Reitzammer, are accepted.
Mr. Reitzammer is hereby advised that his appearance before the
Subcommittee on Tourism, Historical & Cultural Resources of the
Committee on Tourism & Economic Development on behalf of the Florida
Entertainment Commission and his letter to Representative Brown on
behalf of the Florida Entertainment Commission, without having
registered as a lobbyist pursuant to Joint Rule 1, was a violation of Joint
Rule 1 of the Rules of the Florida Senate and Florida House of
Representatives. Mr. Reitzammer is further advised that his employment
as executive director of the Florida Entertainment Commission,
considering the responsibilities of that position, caused him to be a lobbyist
under Joint Rule 1.
Mr. Reitzammer hereby agrees not to engage in lobbying again on behalf
of the Florida Entertainment Commission, or any other person, in violation
of Joint Rule 1. Further, Mr. Reitzammer regrets any unintentional



adverse effect his action may have brought to the House of
Representatives.



March 7, 1995



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES









JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



In light of the facts stipulated by Mr. Reitzammer and his agreement to
register as a lobbyist and pay all fees required to register as a lobbyist for
the periods from October 1, 1993 through June 30, 1994, and from July 1,
1994 through December 31, 1994, within ten days of the execution of this
agreement (a total of $150), to comply with all other requirements of Joint
Rule 1 for such periods within thirty days of the execution of this
agreement, and to pay a fine for such violations in the amount of $100,
further action on the allegations would serve little, if any benefit to the
public. On the other hand, further proceedings may benefit
Mr. Reitzammer, to the extent that such proceedings could result in a
determination that a finding of a violation is not warranted or that, under
the circumstances, registration by Mr. Reitzammer and the imposition of
the aforementioned fine is not warranted.
Accordingly, the Probable Cause Panel and Mr. Reitzammer agree to
recommend to the Florida House of Representatives that Mr. Reitzammer
be directed to: 1) register as a lobbyist, as required under Joint Rule 1, for
the periods of October 1, 1993 through June 30, 1994, and July 1, 1994
through December 31, 1994, within ten days of the execution of this
agreement; 2) comply with the other requirements of Joint Rule 1 within
thirty days of the execution of this agreement; and, 3) pay a fine of $100
to the State of Florida for said violations.
The Panel and Mr. Reitzammer further agree that, in compliance with
House Rule 13.8(2), this consent decree shall be published in the House
Journal.
This consent decree resolves all matters arising out of the complaint filed
with the Chairman of the Committee on Rules & Calendar, and the House
of Representatives shall not take any further action.

Heavenly Father, as the eyes of those who have served this House look
in on us through their photographs, behold thy people here assembled as
we begin this session for the State of Florida. We each thank you for the
privilege of those who serve in high offices; you know who they are, O Lord,
and all their many needs, so bless them each one. You know their various
persuasions in politics, but, Lord God, help each of us to act on policy and
principle. Bless their families with the power and peace of your presence,
too. Give them health and strength and courage that while they have to
compromise on issues, they will never ever compromise themselves.
Send your blessing to the Governor, the executives, the Cabinet
members, the Justices, and all their staff members. We thank you for them
all. Guide and guard the President and the Speaker as they face the
newness of this time amidst the compelling and competing interests of our
state. We are grateful, grateful for the State of Florida as it enters its
sesquicentennial celebration as a state. Our problems may be plentiful,
Lord, but so are our possibilities.
Make us mindful of those who are old, but never ever let us forget the
young. Help us to manage the state to be proud and peaceful and a safer
place for all. Hold high our commitment to people of all races and stations
in life. Help us to encourage the strong by what we do, but never to forget
the weak. Fasten our vision high above the Earth that when it all is over,
we will find the only praise we ever really seek: to be called your good and
faithful servants for now and evermore. Would everyone say Amen, and say
it again.

President Scott, Speaker Wallace, members of the Supreme Court, and
my partner Buddy MacKay, members of our Cabinet, members of the
Senate and Members of the House, and my fellow Floridians and my first
lady, who is there too.
This year we culminate the 150th anniversary of our statehood. And, as
we gather in Tallahassee, at our state Capitol, to do the people's business,
we have an opportunity to reflect on the Florida of yesterday, today, and
tomorrow.
Yesterday, in 1513, the great explorer Ponce de Leon sighted a land he
called "La Florida," the land of flowers. When Florida entered the Union
back in 1845, there were only about 65,000 people in the entire state. We
could seat them comfortably in Joe Robbie Stadium today.
Florida entered the Union at the same time as Iowa. And, during the
debate over the statehood issue, Representative Samuel Vinton of Ohio
predicted that Florida was so remote that it would always be smaller in
population than Iowa. Florida and history have proven Representative
Vinton very wrong.
Today, Florida is the fastest growing state in the nation. We started as
a vast frontier of swamp and forest, and we became the 20th largest state
with a population of 2.7 million people in 1950. And, today with over 13
million people, we are the states' fourth largest state.
Our cities and our small towns have put us on the map as a world-class
destination. A state that has something for everyone.
Just before Florida joined the Union in 1845, the Territorial Assembly
wanted Congress to split the state into two parts, divided at the Suwannee
River. That request was properly denied. And Spessard Holland, our
Senator and Governor, said, "Florida has never been split geographically,
or in spirit."
In the spirit of serving the state, the state that we love, each of us comes
to these chambers and the work before us with an intent to do what is right
for our people.
You follow legislators throughout our history, and I'm proud to be one,
who have helped make Florida a trail-blazer for democracy, fighting to
open up our government and its records to the people. These leaders have
secured a place in our history because they put the needs of our people first.
Today, as we look back to celebrate Florida's history, we also have the
vision and the courage to look forward, to secure Florida's future. During
the 1995 Session, we have a unique opportunity to make tomorrow's
history.
Today, we are nearly at the doorway of a new century. The people have
entrusted us with great responsibility, a responsibility to do what is right,
not necessarily what is easy.
This session, we observe another first, at least in our recent history: a
Senate under control of Republicans and a House under control of the
Democrats. What does this bode for the people? A session of bickering and
gridlock, one-upmanship? I trust not. I don't think the Republicans who
elected that majority of the Senate or the Democrats who elected that
majority of the House, voted for or wanted that. I trust that we will come
together in a spirit of goodwill and cooperation to do the people's business.
And what is the state of the State? I think it's pretty darn good, but with
much more that could be done to make it much better. Let me give you a
few comparisons.
When I spoke to you four years ago, the criminals were serving less than
36 percent of their sentences. Now, convicted criminals entering our
prisons will stay behind bars 75 percent of their sentences. And, with our
budget request, and going to 150 percent of capacity, they will be serving
85 percent.
We have a new Department of Juvenile Justice. We've formed
partnerships with local communities to promote boot camps. And we've
signed, just the other day, contracts for three Youthful Offender Prisons.
Our new Department of Juvenile Justice stresses prevention and detention.
Welfare reform. We have passed a nonpartisan welfare-reform plan, and
Florida has obtained a federal waiver for the two largest demonstration
projects in the country. Early results from Escambia show that our plan



will get people off the dole and on to work. We're asking you to allow us
to add at least five more counties this session.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES










24 JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE

In the environment, the costly Everglades lawsuit is settled; the cleanup
has begun. Kissimmee restoration is underway. Two agencies have been
combined. We're now looking at entire ecosystems, rather than separate
pieces; P-2000 has been funded; uniformity in wetlands definition has been
achieved; permitting has been streamlined and simplified; and one-stop
permitting is becoming a reality. Greenways now cover and connect most
of our state, and our citizens can enjoy Florida's natural beauty for
generations to come.
Health care. Florida's health care costs increased more than 20 percent
the first year I was Governor. It ate up all the money that we had. We could
not give a pay raise to our state workers because we were just trying to keep
up with their health care costs. This year, Florida health care costs are 11
percent below a year ago. [applause] That's 10 times more than the
nation's average. That's 3 billion dollars that we are putting in the
pocketbooks of Floridians to build our businesses, to pay our workers, to
protect our environment because of this. This is happening because we lead
the country in managed care and a market-driven health delivery system.
[applause] As an aside, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. We don't need a
separate Department of Health. [applause]
Our Community Health Purchasing Alliances began to work, began to
sell policies last June. Now, nearly eight months later, more than 6,000
small businesses, more than 28,000 workers and their families have medical
coverage. The prices are 20 to 50 percent cheaper than what they could buy
before. More than half of those companies and their employees had no
insurance coverage before. Prices are cheaper inside the CHPA and now,
companies outside the CHPAs are demanding and receiving lower costs as
well. And those of us in our personal health care coverage, it's going down
because we have brought the overall prices down. In spite of that, though,
we still have two million of our people without any health coverage. So we
have unfinished business.
Education. Since 1991, our public school dropout rate has been reduced
from 6.5 percent to 5.6 percent. Thousands of our students are staying in
school. There were no full-service schools when I became Governor, but
today there are more than 450. With our budget, we will increase that
number by 138 additional sites.
Our focus has been on putting the classroom first. We have increased the
ratio of teachers to administrators as a measurement of that commitment.
Teenage pregnancy has declined by seven percent. That's 2,000 fewer teens
who have had a child. That causes a reduction in abortions, as well. It
causes a reduction in welfare. It causes a reduction in crime. It is a result
of the full-service schools and the work that we are doing in that regard.
Our focus has been on putting the classroom first. We need to continue that
focus. [applause] Every school now has a school improvement council of
parents and teachers. And school ability, which was a dream, now is a
reality. Tallahassee no longer calls the shots. We're in the fourth year of
school accountability. Every school receives its own report card. Parents
and teachers are the key now to running the system.
I commend Commissioner Brogan for the initiatives to return more
power to the schools. [applause] We must grade our counties and our
schools on the kind of students they produce and let them make the
decisions about how to do that.
We know our community colleges are the best in the country. They are
under great strain. Our universities are excellent, but too few of our
children get to use them. Florida has miles to go to have a world-class
education system.
Limited resources may restrict our ability to do all that needs to be done,
but we know that education is not a partisan issue. That's why we may
consider coming back together later this year and devote a session to
education and putting the classroom first. [applause]
Elder affairs. Four years ago, we had no Department of Elder Affairs but
the people had mandated that there be such a department. Now, we have
a department that last year generated 3.5 million hours of voluntary time
for work to help elders. That's equivalent to 44 million dollars that
taxpayers did not have to pay. This department does an excellent job, and
we must transfer the remaining elder services to it. And in addition, we
must protect elders from becoming victims of abuse by stiffening the
penalties for such abuse. [applause]



As we lead Florida into the next century, I would like to have us create
a new paradigm, a rubric through which we address our issues. A way in
which we can work together regardless of party or race, ideology, gender,
ethnic background.

___ _ _ ___ __ __ ___



Well, this is 3,500 rules, and we know this is part of the weight of the
world that is burdening our businesses, our schools, and our future.
Now, I've called on members of the Cabinet and other leaders in
government to pitch in to help, and to pitch out as many of the state's rules
that they can, nearly 25,000 rules, as possible.



E OF REPRESENTATIVES March 7, 1995

It's jobs. Good, clean, high-wage, challenging, fulfilling jobs, and lots and
lots of them. Government is not too effective in mandating things. But
government can set incentives and can reduce disincentives. Government
can't create new jobs, but government can level the playing field, perhaps
even tilt the playing field, in favor of the private sector to allow it to create
the jobs.
Why select jobs as this new paradigm? Simply because good jobs are the
key to dealing with all of Florida's problems, all of Florida's needs. Without
a growing supply of jobs, we can't solve our crime problem. Punishment is
not enough, and it's too expensive to go on that alone. We can't succeed
in welfare reform without many entry-level jobs. We can't enjoy the quality
of life that we have inherited without a sound economic base, which
requires high-value jobs. We can't afford the education system we must
have without good jobs for that sound tax base. What are the steps that
we have to take to allow job creation?
Our current regulatory structure saps our economic vitality. It creates
endless costs, delays both real and political. That's why we have to slay the
hydra-headed dragon of over-regulation. [applause]
I have tasked Buddy to be my giant killer. He loves impossible tasks.
We're committed to reducing state regulations by at least 50 percent. But
more than that, we're committed to changing the way that we carry out
public policy: to stop being the policeman seeking to punish our citizens
and start being a partner, seeking our citizens' help in effecting necessary
requirements for public protection.
I've been traveling throughout Florida, talking with local citizens and
businesspeople. They're telling me of how often they get bogged down
when government drags its feet through over-regulations. They don't really
say it that nice. [laughter] You've been out there, what they really say is,
"When the hell did I become the enemy of my government? Why did I
stop-[applause]-Why am I treated like a criminal by a regulator, when
I am simply trying to create some more jobs or to build or to add to my
business?"
Our businesses and our citizens are demanding timely, timely action and
answers from government. And, for them, time is money, literally. A quick
answer, either yes or no, can make a world of difference.
Recently, I sent you a copy of a book called The Death of Common
Sense, by Philip Howard. This book outlines why the public is so angry:
the rules and regulations and how they are choking American government
and business. The book identifies "Public Enemy Number One" and that
is the rules and regulations and the way we are presently applying them.
This is not just a Florida problem, this is a national problem. But you and
I have the opportunity to help lead Florida and the nation out of the
swamp, and we can claim very favorable publicity for our state in that
process.
I'm pleased to report on Buddy's progress as of now. Here's what we've
done already:
There are more than 10,000 rules and regulations just in agencies under
control of the Governor-10,000 rules. In two months time, by making this
50 percent goal an imperative, an imperative to our agencies, we've
identified some 3,500 rules that should be eliminated. That's nearly 34
percent just in those agencies. We're just getting started, but the easy part
comes first.
Let me show you what 3,500 rules look like. [The Governor strapped on
a safety lifting belt, lifted a pile of rules high up, and thumped them down
on the table.] [laughter] [applause] That's 3,500 rules right there.
[applause]
But under the old way we were doing business, I wouldn't have been able
to show you this because I think this weighs over 50 pounds. [laughter]
[applause] As you know, we had a rule that was bubbling its way up to
say that no one in the state of Florida could lift anything that weighed over
50 pounds. If the box weighed 54 pounds, you couldn't take four pounds
out of the box. We treated that rule the way we should treat rules now. We
trashed it. So now I can lift up this. [applause]










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE]



At the Department of Transportation, Ben Watts has come up with a
bold and dramatic answer: eliminate all the rules. [applause] Make the
top managers accountable for decisions they make and put into place a
process to resolve disputes over their decisions. It's interesting, he's talked
to the road contractors about this; nobody will really give up any legal hold
they have. They can ultimately go to court, but one of the things he is
talking about is, if you go through the dispute process and you ultimately
lose, and you want to go to court, at some stage, the loser ought to have to
pay the attorney's fees and the cost of that process. [applause]
I ask you to support Ben's plan; it's a significant step on the way to rules
reform.
Secretary Wetherell in the Department of Environmental Protection has
a demonstration project in Duval County that's working to get businesses
into compliance as the number-one goal and has punishment as the last
resort. The process stresses cooperation over confrontation and it's
receiving excellent results. For the first time, we are saying to businesses,
"If you think you've got a problem, pollution, hazardous waste, come to us
and we'll help you fix that problem. We'll not charge you 10,000 dollars a
day." She has asked to broaden this to other areas. This is the kind of
common-sense approach that we need to take.
Secretary Shelley, at the Department of Community Affairs, is asking-
proposes state review of small amendments to local comprehensive plans-
amendments involving 10 acres or less. She's asking that those be
abolished, 40 percent of the state's oversight of comprehensive plan
amendments. I'm also asking for DCA to be more flexible in administering
the state's growth management plan. [applause] And, I'm pleading for
Leon County to be more flexible in regard to cook-shack permits.
[laughter] [applause]
I'm glad Speaker Wallace and President Scott have joined with me in
sharing this goal. And members of our Cabinet are already beginning their
process of seeking the rules that they could reduce. Commissioner Brogan's
plan to eliminate all rules that restrain local school districts from making
their own decisions is an excellent one.
There is more that we can do together. The cornerstone of our joint
attack should be to pass a bill that would say that all of our department
and agency rules now in effect would be repealed at the close of the 1995
Session of the Legislature, except those rules that I say need to stay in
effect or that you say needs to be in effect. We will share this. [applause]
We'll have our rules to you within the next three or four weeks of the ones
that we think should stay in effect.
I believe that this is the best plan to relieve our citizens of the burden
placed on their lives by unnecessary rules and regulations. We can give
back to the people the right to control their destiny, the power to shape
their future.
Current law requires that any state agency charged with carrying out a
statutory function must adopt rules and regulations, whether they're
needed or not. This statute, 120.535, should be repealed at once. This will
send a bipartisan message: Florida is no longer the home of red tape and
bureaucratic stagnation. [applause]
Let's make this great challenge one of our legacies for Florida: to stop
the insanity of rules and regulations; to start the rule of common sense.
Economic Development. One of Florida's most dynamic business leaders
is with us today, Dick Nunis. He's the President and CEO of Walt Disney
World. He is also Chairman of the Florida Council of 100. Dick has worked
with Buddy and I to conduct a series of economic development forums
around our state. With the Chamber's help and the Council of 100's help,
and without exception, in every one of these meetings a familiar theme is
repeated over and over again.
These businesspeople who are accustomed to winning in everything they
pursue are frustrated and angry because our state is losing out to Georgia,
Alabama, North Carolina, Mississippi, Tennessee, when it comes to
attracting new industry. They don't want to concede this competition for
high-tech, high-wage jobs. Neither do I. Neither do you. That's why I'm
asking you to help build a stronger economy for our state by strengthening
the public/private partnership, Enterprise Florida. It's time to put Florida
in a stronger position to win, by making sure we have a quiver that has all
of the arrows necessary.



This year we have a great opportunity to use the power of the
public/private partnerships to improve our economic efforts. I call on you



March 7, 1995



Together, you and I, we can help our state, we can help our people.
Thank you. God bless. [applause]

to help privatize the Florida Department of Commerce. This action will
help us attract resources and talent of private-sector business leaders in
economic development initiatives. This new direction will boost Enterprise
Florida in its critical mission. I appreciate the leadership of
Representatives Lippman and Mackey in the House and Senators Dantzler
and Grant in the Senate, on this issue. We want to continue providing our
businesses with access to venture capital for job training. We want to
continue to develop and market Florida technology in Florida.
In its first 18 months, Enterprise Florida's Quick Response Training
Program trained more than 10,000 workers for challenging and rewarding
new jobs. This progress has demonstrated tremendous returns to our state
investment, with a 6.5 million dollar state investment, we have leveraged
80 million dollars in the private sector. For every state dollar we spent, we
received 12 dollars of training through this program. The real prize is that
we kept 10,000 jobs or brought 10,000 jobs to Florida that could have been
lost without this program. Join us in transferring the remainder of our
economic development efforts to this partnership, which has a bottom-line
mentality.
Welfare reform. The Escambia County demonstration project in welfare
reform has shown us the essential elements that are necessary to make the
transition from welfare to work: job training, day care, and health care.
The incentives are all backwards in our existing system: an incentive that
provides health care for those who don't work. And yet, two million
Floridians, workers and the family of workers, do not have health care. This
is a disincentive to health care, to welfare reform, to good, high-value jobs.
Florida Health Security. Florida Health Security would allow us to
provide coverage to more than one million additional working Floridians
and their families. It will be financed by more than 5 billion dollars over
the next five years derived from putting our Medicaid recipients under
managed care. The federal savings will be about 3.4 billion dollars, and our
federal waiver allows us to use this with our state savings to provide health
care for up to a million people. It doesn't require any new taxes-no
mandates. It's a free-market plan, no additional bureaucracy. One million
people will no longer go to the emergency room where their care is very
costly and where that cost is picked up, moved over to our private
insurance or our state taxpayers.
Last year, a number of you said, "Pretty good idea, we don't know
whether the federal government would grant the waiver or not. Get the
waiver and I could vote for the plan." I got it. I got it. I got it. [applause]
Now, we are generating state savings as well as federal savings. You may
be tempted, some already have, to take the state savings and to spend it
somewhere else. If you do, you're not only robbing Peter to pay Paul, but
you're giving up the federal savings.
We have great debates, in these halls, over 100 million dollars, over 200
million dollars. We're talking about 3.5 billion dollars that are our hard-
earned dollars our taxpayers have paid that we are saving because of our
plan. We would be foolish to send those dollars back to Washington.
No other state will get in today-will get the kind of deal that we have
in Florida. With the move to now block grant Medicaid, Florida and other
growth states are in tremendous jeopardy, and we will suffer greatly.
We have a contract with the federal government for these 3.4 billion
dollars for five years. We must not lose that chance. Mr. President, we can
design a plan, that if the federal government reneges, we are out of it. We
won't spend any money. So if people are worried about us getting caught
in the plan, we can design that plan. You and I can do that. So if they
renege, I believe that we have a chance to hold them to that contract.
Freeing up our businesses by cutting the red tape. Using the
inventiveness of our business and the talent of our business leaders,
leveraging their money with ours to give us a competitive advantage.
Helping provide health coverage for Florida's workers and our families.
These are three efforts that can provide positive incentives. They tilt the
playing field to make Florida a business-friendly state, to create those high-
wage jobs that we must have to have a world-class state.
I ask you to join me as we respond to Florida's critical needs with an
honest plan that puts our people first.










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



Governor and Cabinet were escorted from the Chamber by the Sergeants
at Arms of the House and Senate.
On motion by Senator Jennings, the Joint Session was dissolved at
11:56 a.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 11:57 a.m. A quorum
was present.

Remarks of the Speaker
Speaker Wallace: Members, I'll be brief, and we'll be on to lunch in
a moment.
I think most of us in elected office pay at least some attention to
newspaper editorials, although we might choose to deny that we do. I'd like
to read one today that was written about politics and citizenship in Florida.
It reads as follows:
Are we not called upon by every motive which ought to influence good
and dutiful citizens to lay aside all personal animosities, . to
disregard political jealousies, and to rally unitedly for the one great
objective of saving the state?
S. .[A] higher motive than mere devotion to party should impel every
citizen, and he who suffers himself to be influenced by this, against his
sober judgment, is disloyal to the solemn trust committed to his hands.
That was written as an editorial in the Tallahassee Sentinel 150 years
ago this week in response to the news from Washington that Florida had
just been admitted to statehood. The language is stilted and dated, but the
sentiments are right up to date.
As citizen legislators, we have been given, by our neighbors, the
stewardship of this state, not just a state, but one of the most diverse,
populous, and complex states in the nation. The idea of public service does
not always come easy, but as Florida's late Governor LeRoy Collins used
to say, "The mystical call to government and public service is the desire to
help others." He said that without that desire, no other reason was
sufficient.
So, I want to take this opportunity on the first day of a very important
legislative session of this two-year legislative term to ask all of you to join
me in consecrating this Legislature to the needs and the future of the
people of Florida and especially the children of Florida. Thank you very
much. [applause]
