21-Palm Beach Post-Times, Saturday, Nov. 16, 1968 Government Reorganization Perils Cabinet System With Senate President Jack Matthews, D-Jacksonville, now a guiding hand in drafting legislation to revise the executive branch, and also an active gubernatorial candidate for W70, it will be interesting to see how this structure comes out. One of his primary oppo nents for that W70 race also is a possible victim of any major revamping of the cabinet system. His is Tom Adams. Thus it will be interesting to see in this three way struggle tor power just how the agencies will be grouped when the new Constitution is Implemented some time in er in its hands to do away with the system as it exists. Not oniy that, but three cabinet members face the awesome spectre of losing an area of responsibility over which they now hold exclusive au-thoritv. Treasurer Broward Williams finds nothing in the Constitution which gives him responsibility over insurance. Insurance is where Williams finds his chief source of power now as commissioner, and which constitutes the bulk of his empire. Comptroller Fred Dickinson finds nothing in the Constitution which gives him responsi bility over banks. A considerable amount of his power emi-nates from his title of banking commissioner. Secretary of State Tom Adams finds nothing in the Constitution which gives him corporation franchise duties or responsibility in the area of employment agencies. less than the entire six to oversee an agency. The significance of this new provision is that the cabinet system, as it was carefully cultured by cabinet members through statutes over the years now is subject to total review.

With the emergence of what appears to be an increasingly power hungry legislature, coupled with an increased deposit of power in a governor who can succeed himself and a lieutenant governor running in tandem with him, the six cabinet members have a fight on their hands. The battleground will be in reorganizing the slate into no more than 2) agencies. There now are more than ltiit state agencies and even more agencies such as the various navigation districts, conservation districts and the like which will be involved in the merger. The new Constitution states this maximum of 25 agencies should be placed under a combination of all elected cabinet members and the governor, the governor alone, the lieutenant governor alone, a single cabinet member, or an office or board appointed by and serving at the pleasure of the governor. The only qualifying statement regarding the governor appointing an officer or board to oversee an agency is that the legislature may require confirmation of the Senate or the approval of three members of the cabinet. There is no provision for the six cabinet members as group or as a combination to supervise any agency. Nor is there any provision for the governor and any grouping of cabinet members MM OA Men's and Boys' Casual HANDBAG Clutch PURSE Topper BABY PARTY DOLL SUMMER BLONDE 37 Kin Spray Super Silt (" Downtown Lions Set Annual Toy Pickup 1 97 8 23 2- SUPPERS Rvpulur $..')
