House of Representatives



Tuesday, March 5, 1996



Journal of the House of Representatives for the 98th 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,
March 5, 1996, 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 9:30 a.m. for the beginning of the 98th Regular Session and
were called to order by the Speaker, the Honorable Peter R. Wallace.

Prayer

The following prayer was offered by the Reverend James Hobby of the
Episcopal Church of the Advent of Tallahassee, upon invitation of
Speaker Wallace:

Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord
his God, the maker of heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them,
the Lord who remains faithful forever. He upholds the cause of the
oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets prisoners free. The
Lord gives sight to the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are bowed
down. The Lord loves the righteous. The Lord watches over the alien and
sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the
wicked. The Lord reigns forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations.

O God, the fountain of wisdom, whose will is good and gracious and
whose law is truth, we beseech you so to guide and bless our Senators
and Representatives in the Legislature of this state that they may enact
such laws as shall please you-laws based on principles before
pragmatism, laws that reflect your compassion and justice, laws that are
made to the glory of your name and the welfare of this people; through
Christ our Lord. Amen.

No. 87,319
In Re: CERTIFICATION OF THE NEED
FOR ADDITIONAL JUDGES

[February 8, 1996]

GRIMES, 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 additional judges, or the necessity for decreasing the
number of judges required to consider cases filed before the respective
courts. Because of our appreciation of the fiscal ramifications, we have
adopted a policy of only certifying the need for a new judge when we are
confident that such a need exists. To this end, we have analyzed the
cases filed and evaluated the growth in the workload of the State Courts
System over the past several years.

As a result of this careful review, we certify the need for five additional
circuit judges, four additional county judges, and no additional appellate



judges. This year's certification is substantially lower than those we
have made in recent years. A comparison of the requests for new judges
filed by the respective trial courts and the new judges certified as needed
for fiscal year 1996-97 follows:

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 requests for
additional judges from any of these courts, despite the fact that Florida's
intermediate appellate courts all are forecast to exceed the established
threshold of 250 appellate filings per judge in 1996. The forecasts for
1996 suggest the workload of the district courts will range from a low of
296 filings per judge in the Third District Court of Appeal to a high of
402 filings per judge in the Fourth District Court of Appeal.
The district courts have each addressed workload pressures through
various means. They have improved internal operating procedures,
established central legal research staff, and assigned senior judges to
hear appeals on a temporary basis. The First District Court of Appeal
has developed an appellate pre-briefing conference program combining
both mediation and case management, as well as a specialized division
to handle workers compensation cases. We continue to encourage these
courts to develop alternative and creative means to efficiently and fairly
hear the cases brought before them. Based upon the lack of requests, we
do not certify any additional judicial positions for the district courts of
appeal, but request that the Legislature favorably review requests for
alternative resources to address workload increases during the annual
appropriations process.
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 amended December 21, 1995. Consistent with
previous practice, 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 case filings per judge, the other factors described in rule
2.035, Florida Rules of Judicial Administration, were considered. These
other criteria included county judge service on the circuit bench, the
availability and use of senior judges, the availability and use of
supplemental hearing officers, the use of alternative dispute resolution,
the number of jury trials, the number of foreign language
interpretations, the geographic size of a circuit, special law enforcement
activities, the availability and use of case-related support staff and case
management policies and practices, the nature and complexity of cases,
and caseload trends. This information was extremely useful in
evaluating the requests of the various circuit courts.
We find it necessary to certify five new circuit judges for fiscal year
1996-97. These five additional circuit judges include one additional
circuit judge each for the Eighth, Tenth, Twelfth, Thirteenth, and
Twentieth Judicial Circuits.
While the circuit courts experienced a slight decrease in filings from
1991 through 1993, the years 1994 and 1995 yielded upward trends in



2

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



almost every category of case. Juvenile, criminal, and domestic relations
case filings continued to increase in 1994 and 1995 faster than other
categories, with continued growth forecast well into 1996. The most
significant growth continues to be in domestic and repeat violence case
filings. This category of cases has increased 452% since 1986.

In addition to the growth in the number of filings in the juvenile,
probate, and domestic violence categories, the cases in these categories,
as well as others, are more labor intensive than in previous years.
Changes in the statute, case law and court procedures in recent years
have 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. The collective effect of
these changes is that cases are more involved and labor intensive than
when the 1,865 filings per judge threshold was adopted in 1986. Often
these changes cannot be measured in terms of a need for judicial
positions in a particular jurisdiction, but instead serve to gradually
increase workload across the board. 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 are deemed to be working above capacity. 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.

Four of the five courts for which we are certifying a need for an
additional judge are forecast to be at or in excess of the 1865 filing per
judge threshold. We also certify the need for an additional judge for the
Thirteenth Judicial Circuit, which is expected to have a 1996 workload
below the threshold. This circuit had the highest jury trial rates in the
state in 1994, and this trend is expected to continue in 1995. It also has
a relatively large and increasing number of foreign language
translations, which slow court proceedings.

The Court also gave the request of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit a
close review because of the number of judges requested and the unusual
pressures in the criminal divisions of that circuit which we addressed
last year. In 1995, the court recommended and the legislature
authorized, additional resources for the Eleventh Judicial Circuit
including: two additional circuit judgeships; one county judgeship; and
a strike force involving significant additional senior judge days and
several support staff to improve case management. It is our
understanding that the Eleventh Judicial Circuit has not been able to
fully engage the resources of the strike force. The principal obstacle is
the lack of available courtrooms. Judicial leadership and court staff are
working hard to address space limitations so they can take full
advantage of such resources. Accordingly, we are deferring
consideration of the need for additional circuit judges until the effects of
the senior judge support in the criminal divisions can be evaluated. We
have asked the legislature to continue the availability of these resources
for fiscal year 1996-97.
As in circuit court, the 1994 caseloads in the county courts increased,
reversing a four-year downward trend. This is largely attributable to
growth in criminal and civil filings. Criminal traffic filings were also up
slightly.

In evaluating the need for additional county 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. 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 and requested additional county judges. We
find it necessary to certify four new county judges for fiscal year 1996-97.
These four additional county judges include one additional county judge
each for Duval and Broward Counties, and two additional county judges
for Dade County.



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 and the continued 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, office 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 fund the Judicial
Branch budget requests for such resources. We also emphasize the
importance of continued funding for the use of retired judges. These
judges play an important role and their services are available at much
less expense than full-time judges.

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 October 1, 1996.
It is so ordered.

Legislature since Statehood in 1845, during the Regular Session of 1995,
and entitled:

An act relating to physicians assistants; amending s. 458.347, F.S.;
revising provisions regulating physician assistant programs for,
and certification of, certain unlicensed physicians who are foreign
medical school graduates; increasing penalties applicable to
physician assistants relating to violations of the practice act or
certain other provisions regulating the practice of medicine;
amending s. 459.022, F.S.; relating to physician assistants for
osteopathic physicians; providing penalties applicable to physician
assistants relating to violations of the practice act or certain other
provisions regulating the practice of osteopathy; amending s.
409.906, F.S.; correcting a cross reference; providing an effective
date.

Very similar versions of bills amending provisions of Florida law
respecting physician assistants were passed by the Florida Legislature.
Although the intent of Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 1658 and
House Bill 215 are nearly identical, the drafting of Committee
Substitute for Senate Bill 1658, is preferred. That bill was presented to
the Governor earlier, and will become law on July 1, 1995.

For these reasons, I am withholding my approval of House Bill 215
and hereby veto the same.

Dear Secretary Mortham:

By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under the
provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, I do hereby withhold my approval of and transmit to you with
my objections, Committee Substitute for House Bill 237, enacted during
the 77th Session of the Legislature since Statehood in 1845, during the
Regular Session of 1995, and entitled:

An act relating to drug-free workplace requirements; amending s.
112.0455, F.S.; prescribing qualifications of laboratories that
analyze specimens; requiring the Agency for Health Care
Administration to adopt rules relating to the drug testing of urine,
hair, blood, and other body specimens; amending s. 440.102, F.S.;
prescribing qualifications of laboratories that analyze specimens;
requiring the Department of Labor and Employment Security to
adopt rules relating to the drug testing of urine, hair, blood, and
other body specimens; providing an effective date.

This bill provides for the adoption of rules to provide for certain types
of drug testing, including the testing of hair samples. I am opposed to
the promulgation of additional rules that complicate the processes of
government and add to bureaucratic red tape. Additionally, I have
concerns about the testing of hair for the presence of illegal drugs.
Different hair colors can lead to differing results, causing concern among
certain ethnic groups that their populations would be affected by these
tests in ways different from those ethnic populations with other
predominant hair colors.

For these reasons, I am withholding my approval of Committee
Substitute for House Bill 237 and hereby veto the same.

Secretary of State



Dear Secretary Mortham:

By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under the
provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, I do hereby withhold my approval of and transmit to you with
my objections, House Bill 601, enacted during the 77th Session of the
Legislature since Statehood in 1845, during the Regular Session of 1995,
and entitled:

An act relating to the South Indian River Water Control District,
Palm Beach County; amending chapter 71-820, Laws of Florida;
authorizing the Board of Supervisors of the South Indian River
Water Control District to receive real and personal property and to
make it available to the public for recreational purposes; providing
that land thus received shall lie within the district and East of
Canal 18 of the South Florida Water Management District;
providing an effective date.

House Bill 601 provides expanded authority for the South Indian
River Water Control District to accept lands and personal property to
use or lease for recreational purposes. A Water Control District created
under Chapter 298, Florida Statutes, is established for the primary
purpose of effecting drainage and reclamation of marginal lands for
agriculture or development. This bill would expand that authority and
would allow the district to operate recreational facilities.
Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, provides an exclusive and uniform
method for the creation of community development districts. Water
control districts should not be utilized to circumvent that established
procedure.

For these reasons, I am withholding my approval of House Bill 601
and hereby veto the same.

Secretary of State



Dear Secretary Mortham:

By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under the
provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, I do hereby withhold my approval of and transmit to you with
my objections, Committee Substitute for House Bill 1319, enacted
during the 77th Session of the Legislature since Statehood in 1845,
during the Regular Session of 1995, and entitled:
An act relating to capital felonies;

Florida's current sentencing scheme in death penalty cases has been
affirmed by the United States Supreme Court on numerous occasions.
For that reason, any significant change in the well-established Florida
law should be approved only with great caution. Committee Substitute
for House Bill 1319 would initiate fundamental changes which most
surely would cause years of litigation to obtain the level of precedent
afforded to the present law.
I strongly disagree with proponents of this bill that death penalty
cases could be processed more quickly as a result of these proposed
changes. It is my opinion that if this bill were to become law, the already
untenable time that death cases languish in court would increase.
Simply put, Florida's entire death penalty process would be subject to
constitutional attack due to these fundamental changes and years of
uncertainty would be the result.

This bill would change procedures respecting the jury's
recommendation in death penalty cases. The present law represents a

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



unique and delicate balance of a jury's expression of community values
and a judge's expertise regarding application of the law. In Florida, a
capital case is divided into a trial phase and a penalty phase. To convict,
the jury verdict must be unanimous. If there is a conviction, a penalty
phase follows. A recommendation of death can only be made if seven or
more jurors agree. If the judge determines that the jury correctly applied
the law to the facts, the judge will impose the recommended sentence.
If the judge finds that the jury improperly applied the law to the facts,
the judge will impose the appropriate sentence which could be death or
imprisonment.
The Florida Supreme Court has opined that the trial judge must give
"great weight" to the jury's recommendation and may not overide the
advisory verdict of life unless "the facts suggesting a sentence of death
are so clear and convincing that virtually no reasonable person could
differ." (Tedder v. State, 322 So.2d, at 910).
If this bill were to become law, the jury's recommendation would be
relegated to a non-binding recommendation "to apprise the trial judge
and appellate court of the jury's reaction to the evidence of aggravation
and mitigation as a matter of information." In other words, the jury's
verdict would become largely symbolic and would carry virtually no
weight at all.
Just as we entrust juries to determine innocence or guilt, we also
should entrust juries to determine the appropriate sentence. I would
support a law which held that a jury recommendation of imprisonment
would not be subject to override by the judge.
Some provisions here are improvements I have either supported or
would support. For example, this bill provides additional aggravating
circumstances relating to the age and vulnerability of the victim.
Additionally, the bill provides that the public records law may not be
used by an inmate as a basis for failing to timely litigate any post
conviction action.
The sponsors of this bill have made a good faith effort to address the
most difficult and complex problem of deciding which convicted criminal
should be put to death. However, the problems I have noted outweigh
any improvements they, or I, might find in the bill.
For these reasons, I am withholding my approval of Committee
Substitute for House Bill 1319 and hereby veto the same.

Dear Secretary Mortham:

By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under the
provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, I do hereby withhold my approval of and transmit to you with
my objections, House Bill 1575, enacted during the 77th Session of the
Legislature since Statehood in 1845, during the Regular Session of 1995,
and entitled:
An act relating to preschool education; requiring the State Board of
Education to adopt rules establishing the ratio of adults to children
in preschool classes for children who have disabilities; requiring
certain training, subject to the approval by the Department of
Education and the Department of Health and Rehabilitative
Services, for paraprofessional employees who teacl preschool
children who have disabilities; providing an effective date.
My concern respecting House Bill 1575 is that it is counterproductive
to my efforts to reduce burdensome rulemaking in Florida. The State
Board of Education currently has the power to establish the rules
specified in this legislation. The Governor and Cabinet, sitting as the
State Board of Education, should be allowed to exercise its constitutional
discretion in this matter. This state does not need another legislative
mandate to promulgate rules which increase bureaucratic red tape and
complicate the administration of our educational system.

For these reasons, I am withholding my approval of House Bill 1575
and hereby veto the same.

House Bill 1583 authorizes each school district to adopt a five-level
program for the career development of education paraprofessionals. The
stated purpose of the program is to provide a system of career
development for paraprofessionals based upon education and training
advancement, and to furnish economic incentives so as to encourage
persons to seek excellence in their duties as paraprofessionals.
However, in establishing a state-wide uniform system for
advancement, this bill may present obstacles for uniquely talented
individuals who do not fit within the structures of the program.
Additionally, this bill mandates the State Board of Education to adopt
rules to implement the program. Mandatory rulemaking is contrary to

government. The encouragement of persons seeking excellence in their
development as education paraprofessionals should be accomplished

Dear Secretary Mortham:
By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under the
provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, I do hereby withhold my approval of and transmit to you with
my objections, House Bill 1595, enacted during the 77th Session of the
Legislature since Statehood in 1845, during the Regular Session of 1995,
and entitled:
An act relating to the Oklawaha Basin Recreation and Water
Conservation and Control Authority, Lake County;
House Bill 1595 requires the Lake County Commission to call for a
referendum on the 1996 general election ballot to poll the voters on the
following two questions:
1) Whether the appointed members of the Water Authority should
be elected rather than appointed; and
2) Whether the governing board of the Water Authority should be
abolished and its duties assumed by the Lake County Commission.
These questions are in conflict with provisions of Florida law
specifying the form of questions placed on the ballot. Further, the
provisions of these two questions are mutually exclusive and
contradictory. The bill does not speak to the possibility that both
questions might be approved.
For these reasons, I am withholding my approval of House Bill 1595
and hereby veto the same.

my objections, House Bill 2077, enacted during the 77th Session of the

An act relating to the St. Lucie County-Fort Pierce Fire District;
changing the name to St. Lucie County Fire District; amending the
charter to incorporate all subsequent amendments; changing the
interest rate; repealing all previous acts relating to the fire district;
providing an effective date.
House Bill 2077 amends provisions which allow the district to borrow
money. That amendment increases from $500,000 to 25 million, the
amount the district can borrow in any one year. I have serious concerns
about the dramatic expansion of borrowing authority in light of the fact
that I have received comments on this legislation indicating that the
people residing within the district may not have had an adequate
opportunity to comment on this issue.
For these reasons, I am withholding my approval of House Bill 2077

Dear Secretary Mortham:

By the authority vested in me as Governor of Florida, under the
provisions of Article III, Section 8, of the Constitution of the State of
Florida, I do hereby withhold my approval of and transmit to you with
my objections, House Bill 2689, enacted during the 77th Session of the
Legislature since Statehood in 1845, during the Regular Session of 1995,
and entitled:
An act relating to trust funds; creating the Seafood Workers
Economic Assistance Trust Fund within the Department of
Environmental Protection; providing for source of moneys and
purposes; providing for future review and termination or re-
creation of the trust fund; providing a contingent effective date.

House Bill 2689 creates the Workers Economic Assistance Trust Fund
within the Department of Environmental Protection. This bill conflicts
with fiscal provisions found in House Bill 1317, which also passed the
Legislature this session. House Bill 1317 provides for the establishment
of the Seafood Workers Economic Assistance Trust Account within an
established trust fund available within the Department of Labor and
Employment Security. House Bill 2689 is therefore duplicative and
unnecessary.

Legislature since Statehood in 1845, during the Regular Session of 1995,

An act relating to the regulation of professions and occupations;

House Bill 2721 is a comprehensive bill to revise many provisions
relating to the professions regulated by the Department of Business and
Professional Regulation. The bill contains many beneficial measures;
however, I cannot support the provisions relating to the Statewide
Minimum Building Code.
While I support statewide certification of contractors, I also endorse
the ability of local governments to provide for the unique needs of their
communities. Section 132 of the bill may substantially affect the nature
of the State Minimum Building Code. This represents a broad,
substantial change that should have been more thoroughly considered
in the legislative process.

Remarks of the Speaker
Speaker Wallace: Members of the Florida House of
Representatives, welcome to the opening day of the 1996 Legislative
Session.

I thank all of you for your hard work over the weeks leading up to
today. I especially want to thank a leader whose unselfish cooperation
helps this House to function as a bipartisan legislature in the truest
sense, Republican Leader, Daniel Webster. [applause] Dan, will you



S]



E OF REPRESENTATIVES March 5, 1996


stand up? [applause] Dan, you have been a great partner and a good
friend, and all of us here are grateful to you for the hard work you do on
our behalf.

Each opening day gives us a fresh opportunity, as a citizen legislature,
to give something back to our state, and to repay the confidence of those
who placed us here. It is a chance to begin again. With renewed
optimism, intelligence, courage, and hard work, we can make a
difference for the people of Florida. But at the same time, public
skepticism about government is on the rise. Many people believe we are
only here to serve our own ambitions. And legislatures in other states
hear the same message.

Now, I believe that this House is the finest group of men and women
that I have ever had the opportunity to serve with. I have been honored
to work with Members of the caliber of Representative Buzz Ritchie, for
instance. Buzz, will you stand up? [applause] Buzz, your tireless
commitment to the people we serve and to the issues we wrestle with
every day has earned you our respect, and I'm proud to have you as the
leader of the party we share.

All of you are people of honor and compassion, but at times I think we
are blind to the eyes of history, recording what we do and what we fail
to do. I remember a story Governor LeRoy Collins used to tell.

Each spring, when he was a boy, there was a parade to celebrate
Confederate Memorial Day. And he remembered one old veteran who
marched each year with a long walking stick. The parade would wind up
at the famous Natural Bridge Battlefield, a few miles south of
Tallahassee. There, on March 6, 1865-tomorrow will be 131 years to the
day-a company of young cadets from the West Florida Seminary turned
back a Union advance against this capital. And each year, the old
veteran planted his stick at a certain place in the ground, and danced
around it, chanting, "This is where I stood; this is where I stood." Now,
many children thought the old man was crazy. But Collins knew the old
man was telling where he stood on that battlefield, where he stood as a
child against the Union guns, against impossible odds, and won.

Governor Collins said he remembered that scene many years later, in
1957, when the Florida Legislature passed something called the
"Interposition Resolution." The Interposition Resolution was a
document defying, in the name of states' rights, the power of the federal
courts to order integration in the South. Collins knew he couldn't veto
it because it was a resolution, not an act. So he wrote across the bottom
of the resolution his vigorous condemnation of its segregationist
message.

Today, I have that document in my hand, and I can tell you it feels
alive with the history of that time and with the courage of the man who
wrote so boldly across it. This, in part, is the message that Governor
Collins wrote:

I take this means to advise the student of government who may
examine this document in the archives of this state, that the
Governor of Florida expressed open and vigorous opposition thereto.

Not only will I not condone "Interposition" as so many have sought
for me to do, I decry it as an evil thing, whipped up by the
demagogues and carried on the hot and erratic winds of passion,
prejudice, and hysteria.

If history judges me right, I want it known that I did my best to avert
this blot. If I am judged wrong, then here, in my own handwriting
and over my signature, is the proof of guilt to support my conviction.
LeRoy Collins
Governor

Collins later said he wrote his message as a way to say to future
generations, like that old veteran, "This is where I stood."
What artifact of history will we leave behind to tell of our integrity,
our dedication, our love of Florida? What will be this Legislature's legacy
of courage? What is it that we will leave behind to say, "This is where
we stood"?










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES



For the first time in 26 years, we have what some are calling a new
standard work in Florida history. It's called The New History ofFlorida,
and it is edited by Michael Gannon. Let me read you some excerpts from
the last chapter (and it's not pretty):
[T]he state legislature regularly mimics the political gridlock that
has characterized the nation's capital. Political leaders in both
parties seem more interested in low taxes than needed public
investment in education, social services, infrastructure, growth
management, and environmental protection.

Few state leaders seem ashamed that Florida ranks at the bottom
of all 50 states in per capital spending for higher education or that
the state's public schools are badly overcrowded and notoriously
undersupported, or that Florida ranks high among the states in
prisoners per capital.
So now, this is a part of history, too. And sadly, it's a part of history
that we have been writing, deliberately or not, these past few years. It
seems that our best efforts have been spent trying to stop bad laws, and
not in initiating good ones. Members of the House, we have lost our
vision. Like the old veteran, we need to find our place in the field again.
We need to remember where we stood on the truly important issues: on
education, on the environment, on health care.

We have lost our place in education. We have lost the vision of safe,
uncrowded classrooms where every child has a textbook and an
opportunity to learn. We have let higher education slide as a funding
priority. We have lost the vision of a high-technology, high-wage state
that can only come with excellence in higher education.
Before the next standard work of Florida history is written, do we have
the will, the courage, to rewrite those last few paragraphs? Will we be
able to say to a younger generation, with pride, This is where we stood
on education"?

Perhaps our greatest legacy as Floridians is the fragile environment
that makes Florida unique. Will we have the courage not to roll back our
protection of that precious legacy, to resist the lure of selfish interests?
Will we have the courage to preserve Florida's endangered lands, and to
fairly balance the human needs for adequate pure water and the needs
of the environment? Will we be able to tell a younger generation, with
pride, "This is where we stood on the environment"?

A quarter of Florida's children live in poverty. Millions of working
Floridians lack health insurance. In some communities, infant mortality
rates are higher than third world nations-third world nations. Despite
the best efforts of this House, Florida has failed to pass a comprehensive
system of health care. But will we have the courage this year to expand
our system of health care for Florida's children? And will we have the
courage to address children's health, not only by expanding care, but by
dealing with the fact that tobacco is hooking our children and poisoning
their health? Will we have the courage to hold the tobacco industry
accountable for the human costs of tobacco addiction? [applause] We
may disagree about the process by which the Tobacco Liability Bill
became law, but there is no question that by now, it has been fully
discussed and debated. So, will we stand against the demagoguery-and
if you have seen the ads, that's what it is-of the tobacco industry and
tell a younger generation, "This is where we stood on children's health"?
I will tell you right now I intend to. And if that means having to write,
like LeRoy Collins, across the bottom of a veto override, my
disagreement with the actions of the Legislature, I will do so.
This year, the eyes of history will bear down on us more sharply than
ever before. This is the first session that will be carried, gavel to gavel,
on cable television statewide. And we will be the first Florida Legislature
that the people of Florida will be able to respond to through the Internet.
The technology we can now use to serve democracy can help
revolutionize this process and reawaken a feeling of unity between the
people and their government. But technology will take us no further
than our own courage, unity, and resolve to make this process work.

Clearly, we will not be able to change the past. The most we can do,
if we are fortunate and determined, is to rewrite a few sentences in the
last chapter. But if we can do that, in the end, we will be able to meet



the gaze of history. Each of us will be able to point to that place in the
history books, to that place in the journals of this institution and to say
to our children with pride, "This is where I stood."

Thank you very much. [applause]

Prayer
The following prayer was offered by the Reverend Hal Marchman of
Astor:
I am happy to be here today. I woke up this morning about 5:30,
nervous about writing a prayer for this august body. I had a lot of
thoughts with my eyes open and my heart open. My prayer today is going
to be a prayer of gratitude for the feelings I had at 5:30 this morning; I
hope I can express them now. But my feeling of gratitude was that this
is one of the most wonderful places in the world to live-the state of
Florida. And I began to think about the people of the House and the
Senate-state government. You all have been chosen as leaders by the
people in your home districts to come to Tallahassee. And you here-all
of you are good people-you have been sent here. And when you get to
Tallahassee, then you begin to pick the leaders that are going to lead
you, and you have done a good job of that. This is a great system of
government, and my heart is filled with gratitude that we are a people
that have been brought together to deal with the needs of people. All of
you have a heart for this, and I applaud you for the leaders that you have
chosen for the people of this great state and the government. So my heart
is filled with gratitude to Almighty God for this. I'm also filled with a
heart full of gratitude for the promise of this great state of Florida. We
haven't got it all made yet. We are in the process of becoming. And, my
heartfelt prayer today is, "Long may this land be bright with freedom's
holy light. Protect us by thy might, great God our King." Shalom and
Amen.

Chiles, Jr., Governor, who addressed the Joint Session as follows:

Governor's Address
Thank you very much. President Scott, Speaker Wallace, members of
our Supreme Court, my partner Buddy MacKay and members of the
Cabinet, members of the Senate and members of the House, and our
fellow Floridians.
We come together on this God-given beautiful morning as the elected
leaders of the fourth largest of the 50 states. We come as representatives
of 14 million people who call Florida home.
I know that you share my concern about the lack of credibility that we
elected officials seem to hold-are held now by our people. Most polls



today show that if the people could, they would vote for that someone
other than the named candidates. I believe that's because they're tired
and have become disillusioned with the games that we've played and the
partisan bickering. We have an opportunity to change that.
A book was recently published, The New History ofFlorida. That book
ends where we begin-identifying the great challenges that we face this
session. History shows us that we always have a choice. We can allow
events to shape us, or we can choose to shape events. The 2,000 bills that
you will consider this session are the raw material of Florida's new
history. How will Florida's children judge our work when our chapter is
written? I hope they'll look back upon the year 1996 as the year
cooperation replaced confrontation and results replaced rhetoric. Let's
make this our legacy.

We are a state with great assets. We have a diverse population, a
growing economy, and the Lord has given to us rich resources. But our
state also has tremendous needs, and I want to talk to you about some
of the challenges that we face this session. We must continue to reduce
crime and violence. We must provide our children with a future full of
hope, including quality education. And we must take the necessary steps
to strengthen and improve our economy.

I want to begin today by recognizing the dedicated work of our state
law enforcement officers. These heroes put their lives on' the line every
day, protecting and serving our people with distinction. Over the past
five years, we have taken strong actions together to help law
enforcement promote safer streets, safer communities for our people.
Since 1991, we've added over 38,000 prison beds. We've increased the
time served from 33 percent to now 85 percent. We've ended early
release as a way to control prison population. We've sent a clear message
that we won't allow criminals to terrorize our people. In Florida now, if
you do the crime, you will do the time. Now we need correctional officers
and security improvements to handle the increased capacity of our
prisons.
One of our biggest continuing challenges is dealing with juvenile
delinquents. When it came to leading our charge to reform juvenile
justice, I asked one of our state's most accomplished law enforcement
officers, Secretary Calvin Ross, to help us. We've provided the deep-end
slots for the habitually violent juvenile. Now we have to provide funding
for prevention and intervention to prevent developing another crop of
incorrigible kids. [applause]

If you look at the profile of our prison inmates, you'll see that they got
on the wrong path at an early age. They come from broken homes; they
lack basic education skills; they dropped out of school; they abused
alcohol or drugs; and many were victims of abuse themselves. If you
don't change the profile, you won't change the results. We know that we
will never be able to build enough prisons to handle our crime problem
if we don't do something about our children on the front end.
[applause]
My priority for the next three years will be protecting Florida's most
precious natural resource, children and their families. A recent poll by
the Tampa Tribune and the Florida Center for Children and Youth
shows us that the people are way ahead of us. It shows the public wants
us to focus on children and families. Our people are most concerned
about the education of our children, and I want to applaud the Speaker
and the President and the members of the House and the Senate for
making this your top priority-education-your top priority this session
also.
We know the doorway to prosperity is education. If Florida is ever to
grow and to thrive, the majority of our kids have to get through that
doorway, over the threshold. We focused on the back end, in education,
as well as crime, and we had to because that's where our failures are.
But, like crime, unless we look at children from birth, nurturing,
developing their capacity so that they can go to grammar school, safe and
sound, prepared to learn, they will never succeed.

Helping children at three or four years old-prekindergarten-has
proved to be the most effective and economically sound strategy to
prepare disadvantaged kids for success in schools. We have 137,000 kids
who need this boost.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



We don't want to hear about the bad scores that children get, and yet,
we have failed to fund textbooks and material to keep them supplied
with the tools that they need. [applause] Textbooks and computers are
those critical educational tools. The carpenter can't build a house
without his tools, but half our teachers say that their students have to
share books, and many can't take books home to study. And many of the
books are so outdated. Kids in Dade County showed me some of the
textbooks that they're using. [The Governor held up a history book.] If
you take a look at this history book, Ronald Reagan is still President.
[applause] There is not a word in here about democracy's triumph over
communism. The Soviet Union is still the "Evil Empire." Not one word
about the Gulf War or President Bush or President Clinton. [The
Governor held up a biology book.] And this biology book doesn't even
mention a disease called AIDS. We can do better. Florida has to make
a commitment to the most basic kind of education reform-providing
textbooks and resource materials to children in the classrooms.
[applause]

Kids need safe schools. Let's increase the number of Second Chance
Schools so that we can remove the disruptive and dangerous students
from our regular classrooms and not send them out on the street, but
send them into a tougher school.
We all shared the agony of the Ryce family when their son Jimmy was
abducted and killed. That tragedy reminds us that it's all of our
responsibility to protect our children. In Jimmy's memory, let's enact the
Jimmy Ryce Child Safety Law and send a strong message that our
children can walk home in safety. [applause]

Protecting the family unit is critical in all of our efforts to move Florida
forward. That's why we must redouble our effort to ensure that our
children's homes are safe havens. You have helped make Florida a
bellwether state in the effort to address domestic and sexual violence.
Let's continue our leadership role.
We must also continue to require that fathers embrace their
responsibility and support children that they've brought into this world.
[applause]
We've made good progress in addressing the needs of our children.
Today, our infant mortality rate is lower than it's ever been-23 percent
drop since 1990. That means that over 1,100 babies are alive today
because of our efforts to prevent and have prevention programs like
Healthy Start.

Thousands more will be able to go through life healthy, without a
disability, because their mothers went to full term. That is money in the
bank. That helps lift a burden off of our taxpayers. And we've taken our
immunization rate from 63 percent to 80 percent, a 27-percent increase
since 1991.
The number of children in our foster homes are down and our
adoptions are up by 80 percent since 1990-but 80 percent from where
they started-we've still got a long ways to go. I had the pleasure of being
escorted into the Chamber today by three foster kids, brothers, waiting
to be adopted. We need to find loving parents for all of the 1,700
adoptable foster kids that we have in our system. [applause]
I'm proud that my daughter, Rhea MacKinnon, is spearheading our
Partnership for Adoption effort. She's working to enlist the help of
corporate citizens in placing kids for adoption. She had a pretty good role
model. I'm lucky to have the best friend of Florida's'children and families
as my top advisor, my inspiration, and the love of my life. Rhea always
has been a strong advocate for promoting the needs of children. And
recently she told me, "You better do something about children and
families or, after you're gone, everything that you've wanted to do will
be gone." I hit the road. [applause]
I've been traveling the state trying to learn firsthand about what
people are doing out there, what programs are out there, how they are
working. I've been honored to hear some of the participants share their
personal stories with me. I wish I could share them all with you, but in
Daytona Beach, I met Carrie Stebbins. Carrie got pregnant when she
was 17; she had to quit before she could finish high school. She didn't



March 5, 1996



Our efforts to reach consensus on Enterprise Florida have become a
model for the rest of the nation. It's another example of what we can do



OF REPRESENTATIVES 11



have anywhere to keep her child. She wanted to finish school, but she
didn't have that help. Carrie got help from Teen Parent East. The
program provided transportation and child care for her baby while she
attended school. Last June, she graduated from high school. She's now
attending the community college, and she's working as a volunteer in the
Teen program. She's the role model for these other young girls that they
can make it, that they can direct their own lives, that they don't have
to repeat a pregnancy after a pregnancy; they don't have to be on
welfare; they can have a life.

In Naples, I met Sherrie Ode. Sherrie is a 23-year-old single mother
with two little boys. In a program, she's now getting job training-
training that will help her make a better life for her family, get away
from the minimum-wage job that she had. Her dream is to become a
lawyer; I bet you that she's going to do it.

Florida has some great programs working for our children. These
programs matter; they make a difference. They just don't cover enough
of our children. I guarantee that if each of you would go back home and
spend half a day looking at the programs that you have in your
communities, what they do and what they need, you'll become more
determined than ever to help.
Ask T. Wayne Davis of Winn Dixie or the people at Pratt and Whitney
if focusing on kids can help their bottom line. Ask Dominic Calabro,
Florida TaxWatch, if investing in our children is smart fiscal policy.
They will tell you that it makes good sense, good economic sense as well
as good common sense.

Now, I'd like to ask the Republicans' indulgence for a moment as I
speak to the Democrats in the Chamber.

Back in 1990, Doc Myers and Representative Fred Lippman joined in
an effort to establish the Healthy Kids program. Governor Martinez,
Treasurer Gallagher were good stewards of that program-Healthy
Kids, one of the most successful prevention programs we have. It
produces access to health care for uninsured children who would
otherwise wind up in the emergency room. Since Healthy Kids began,
more than 18,000 kids have received low-cost, comprehensive health
care coverage. Next year there will be 23,000 enrolled in 12 counties.
Every evaluation shows that this is an outstanding bottom-line success.
Healthy Kids is a lifeline to children who need it. And for only 30 million
dollars, we can provide coverage for 111,000 uninsured kids zero to five
years old.
Fellow Democrats, I know this is tough. But I urge you to continue this
good, smart, sound Republican idea started by Doc Myers and Treasurer
Gallagher and Bob Martinez. Florida's Healthy Kids program has been
a remarkable success, and together we can make it better. This is not
about credit; this is about taking care of kids. You can't have a smart kid
if you've got a sick kid. [applause]

We can't talk about strengthening families without mentioning our
elders. And, last year, this Legislature took appropriate action to bolster
our elder-abusd laws. The people of Florida thank you for that effort. We
owe our elders a real commitment to a quality of life that includes basic
human dignity and care in a better alternative than just a nursing home.
Let's ensure that their golden years don't become tarnished times.
Looking at the economic front, we know good jobs in the economy
provide the security and promise that bring our people to happiness, and
it is a central building block for stronger families. And we have some
good news to tell.
"* Last year, with 200,000 new jobs, we were a national leader in job
creation.
"* Our tourist industry is strong again. Ninety-five was Florida's best
year.
"* International trade has been increasing by double digits since 1991
and Florida is becoming the international hub for all of Latin
America.










12 JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE


when we work together-public and private, Democrat and Republican,
House and Senate. We've proven that we can rise above our differences
for the common good. Enterprise Florida will help us build that world-
class economy-help us look out for rural, urban, and minority needs.

The House worked hard on a bill last year; and now the Senate has
joined and we have bipartisan, bicameral support in a great spirit of
cooperation. Senators McKay, Dantzler, and Senator Scott-thank you
for your hard work. And Representatives Lippman, Bloom, Mackey,
Miller, Safley, Bitner, Merchant, Warner, and Speaker Wallace and I
know there are a lot of others that have worked-I appreciate your
efforts, too. When you pass this landmark bill and I sign it into law, we
will send the strong message to business all across the world-Florida
is ready for prime time. Let's make this our first order of business. Let's
close this deal.

You can't have meaningful economic development without meaningful
welfare reform. For too long we just handed people money without
offering them any help of escaping the welfare trap. Our Work First plan
rewards work over welfare. It replaces dependence with independence--
pride and personal responsibility in having a job. Work First turns that
welfare application into a job application. We are also sending a clear
message-no free rides.

From our successful Escambia and Alachua Family Transition
Programs we've learned that we must provide child care and health care
to have a successful transition. These programs also show us that you
can't have successful welfare reform and save money in the first few
years. But we can make huge future savings if we make the changes in
the investments in this reform. I've requested an additional 60 million
dollars in child care to provide services for 18,000 children-that is
critical to welfare reform. I'm very pleased again to see Senator Toni
Jennings and the members of the Senate and Representatives Scott
Clemons, Mary Brennan, and others in the House are moving on parallel
tracks. Let's make this another bipartisan success for Florida.
[applause]
Last year I called for a 50-percent reduction in rules and regulations.
And my partner, Buddy MacKay, tells me that we are more than halfway
to our goal. But he also tells me that we've got a lot more to do, and we
can't do it without your help.

A number of proposals before you would help our agencies reduce
rules. The Department of Business and Professional Regulation is
proposing to deregulate some of the professions so that they can focus
on regulating professions that truly have a significant impact on the
public health and safety. IFurge you to support that effort.

I've identified more than 30 boards which add nothing to the necessary
functions of government. I ask you to repeal those boards. And, more
broadly, I ask you to enact laws with clear policy direction, so there is
no need to set policy through the rulemaking process. If you can't justify
the red tape, let's get rid of it. [applause]
I'm also committed to the reform of the Administrative Procedures
Act. Thanks to the APA Review Commission, we have a proposal that
simplifies the APA, increases flexibility in the applications of
administrative rules, and increases agency accountability to the
Legislature and to the general public. Let's pass this important
legislation.

Protecting our environment is also critical to maintaining Florida's
quality of life. With our strong commitment to environment, our water
and our air are now cleaner than they were 10 years ago. Preservation
2000 has made us a leader in environmental protection. Since P-2000
was enacted in 1990, we've placed more than 600,000 acres of
irreplaceable natural areas aside for future generations. Our budget
calls for some 300 million for P-2000, 10 million for funding of the SWIM
to continue our strong efforts in environmental protection.

It's our responsibility to provide our taxpayers with efficient
government services. We have one of the most efficiently run state
governments in the nation. We are producing results for our people. And
Florida also has some of the hardest working state employees in



uI



E OF REPRESENTATIVES March 5, 1996


America, but some of the lowest paid also. During this session, let's
provide a three-percent pay raise for each employee with a 1,000 dollar
minimum. [applause] The Good Book tells us, "Don't muzzle your ox."
We need to change the situation where the same employees who hand
out food stamps also receive food stamps.

Now I want to take a moment to talk to you about the Tobacco Liability
Law. John Stennis, a patriarch in the United States Senate that I
revered, once had a conversation with me about hard votes that you had
to cast sometimes. John told me that when he first came to the Senate,
Richard Russell was talking with him and said, "John, once in a while
up here, you're going to have to cast a vote for the country." You have
one coming up; it's the "Tobacco Override." It's a hard vote. When there's
over two lobbyists for each member of the Senate, I know how hard it is.
But the smoke screen argument is this: "This bill is so broad, any
business could be sued." Heifer dust.

No other product, other than tobacco, kills and maims when used as
directed. The state in any suit still has to prove injury and damages. In
order to remove any credibility from that specious argument, I have, by
Executive Order and Court Stipulation, narrowed the use of the act only
to tobacco. And I have, and earlier on stand ready to, support legislation
to narrow it only to tobacco. And when you sustain the veto, those people
that are now blocking us from passing that will come and help us do that,
and they can quit frightening small businesses. Interesting to see an ad
campaign now being run in which they talk about law suits. They talk
about the terrible thing and they ask people to call you. They never
mention the word tobacco-very, very interesting.

Each day more than 28,000 Floridians die from the effects of
smoking-Floridians-that's one every 19 minutes. These are your
neighbors. They're our neighbors and they die every hour, every day of
the year. Money collected from our taxpayers in the amount of 420
million dollars is spent by the state every year to pay for the death and
damages that are caused by tobacco. And nearly 64,000 of our kids are
hooked by tobacco every year. That's a Florida child brought into the
tobacco trap every nine minutes. It's our responsibility; we take an oath
to protect them. [applause]

This is one of those watershed votes. Time is running out for tobacco
being able to get away with this. Make this a vote of conscience. Put
Florida in the vanguard of making tobacco pay for the damages that
they've caused. Show Floridians that powerful lobbyists with big
campaign contributions can't persuade you against the bigger interest
of the public. Join me in the fight for our taxpayers and our kids against
tobacco.

Mr. Speaker, I want to thank you for your strong stand of conscience
today.
In Florida, we have a chance to literally change the history of our
nation. We're that kind of a leadership state. We have that kind of
recognition, and I want to share with you some of my recent experiences
with five other governors who conferred about the funding of Medicaid.
There were three Democrats, Roy Roemer of Colorado and Bob Miller of
Nevada and myself, and three Republicans, Tommy Thompson of
Wisconsin, John Engler of Michigan, and Mike Levitt of Utah. We
represented "no-growth," "slow-growth," and "fast-growth" states. We
represented very diverse and very strongly held views about what the
Federal Government should be doing in reforming this program.

With major philosophic and demographic differences between us, we
were given the monumental task of getting together, coming up with a
plan that we could recommend to all of our governors. Our first two
meetings were an unmitigated disaster. Each of us got up and walked
out, screamed at the others, more than once. And when we were ready
to call it a failure at the end of the second meeting, Tommy Thompson
called us all together again and said, "We've got to persist." He said we
had to come back and try again, and we did. We started looking for first,
the things we could agree on. What were the things that we sort of had
in common? We wanted flexibility. How do we agree? Then we addressed
those major differences that each state felt they had to have. We gave
and we got. Certainly, I wanted to ensure that Florida was protected.










JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



Three meetings later, we agreed on an outline which subsequently
became the plan that we presented to 50 states meeting at the National
Governors' Association meeting, and it was adopted unanimously with
a standing ovation. Also a unanimous agreement was a plan to reform
the national welfare system.
We six governors spent over 100 hours meeting with each other in
these deliberations. The bipartisan approach worked. How was it that
governors could come to an agreement when the Congress and the
President could not? We had an imperative. You know, Florida had a
heck of an imperative. In the first congressional plan, we would lose 8
billion dollars. In the vetoed plan, we were going to lose 4 billion dollars.
If the Congress and the President accepted the governors' plan, Florida
would not get hurt. And because each of our states had such a vital stake
in this, we had to find a solution. This process was a great lesson to me,
and I hold it out to you in a way that, together, we can address the thorny
problems that we must solve for the people of Florida.
I will meet with you anytime, anyplace, for as long as we need to meet
to work out our differences. Let's show the voters who sent us here that
we can replace partisanship with partnership. Let's show, in the next 60
days, how much we can do when we work together. Let's see the future
of our children and let's see it through their eyes, the eyes of our
children. Let's make a strong commitment to help them reach their full
potential. We can begin right now, today. Let's stand together as
Floridians and write a new chapter in our state's history. Let's draw
strength from our diversity to boldly move forward into an era of
cooperation.

Floridians are great people, and they can be even greater. Florida's
children are our inspiration to do what is right. They are our inspiration
to face the challenges of our times. And they certainly deserve our very
best effort.

So let's take the action that will make all the future generations proud
as we work together as Floridians and provide our children with that
future full of opportunity. Thank you. [applause]
