During the second year of the biennial budgets, when the Legislature was not around, Reed said members of the Cabinet Budget Commission spent the money the way they wanted to spend it. He said he does not know if the Legislature is ready to start annual budgets yet, but annual sessions and other provisions of the new constitution should end the system "where everybody scratches everybody's back and they look at everything except their own budgets." u TO $50,000 Loans Available Immediately Anywhere in Florida UP TO LIMIT 1 - EXPIRES 111968. LIMIT 1 EXPIRES 111968, School Study Set For Legislature TALLAHASSEE (AP) -Rep. Don Reed, who heads the strengthened Republican minority in the House, says the 1969 Legislature must make some major decisions on how far the state should go in providing services to the people. A number of state agencies already have decided to ask for big budget increases to provide additional services. "Someone feels the public wants the new services," Reed said. "I'm not too sure it's not just the bureaucrats, but we've got to decide." Reed contends Floridians are fed up with government by crisis, caused by a lack of long-range planning, and a a e called "the Democratic pork-chop approach to government in the past." The Legislature is faced with a projected deficit of $219 million but Reed said he does not think the figure will be as high after a review of the figures. Hopefully, he said, Democratic House Speaker Fred Schultz "will maintain his position that we can continue to function within current revenues." Whether the state is able to provide the proper level of services without a tax increase depends on where and how cuts are made, Reed said. 100 VALUATION 1,000 . J 20.00 Month 25'$ EDWARDS '1,500 .

In addition to budget matters, the Legislature faces the major task of reorganizing state government and many other problems. House Republicans picked up two additional seats to enforce their power to back up a veto by GOP Gov. Claude Kirk. But Reed predicts that there will be more of a bipartisan spirit which will help the House make progress. Reorganizing the more than 150 state agencies into 25, as ordered by the new Constitution, is a problem. But Reed said he thinks a careful inspection will show the state can operate with fewer employes. "We can save a lot of money in a meaningful reorganization," he said. The Republican leader said he is pleased with the approach toward more individual control which has been taken by Rep. Richard Petti-grew, D-Miami, who leads the House Reorganization Committee. But, he added: "If they combine the agencies so that the control all remains under the Cabinet, we would be here quite a while. We would not support a reorganization that puts everything under the Cabinet. "Bureaucracy is our problem," Reed said. Over the years, he said, Democratic Cabinet members have lobbied to create more government functions under their control, creating their own domain. Reed said he is not calling for any wholesale firing of state employes but the payroll could be reduced over a period of time by not hiring new employes to replace those who leave unnecessary jobs.

I I J L of Education to make studies of educational programs to see if improvements can be made. The reports, he said, also will give the lawmakers an idea of what can be done to promote quality education. The education law, as revised by the special session, has some built-in provisions for kindergarten and exceptional child units as well as normal growth. So far, there has been no estimate of how much additional money will be required to fully fund the educational system which accounts for more than half of the total general revenue expenditures. There has been some talk that the 1969 Legislature, which is scheduled to reorganize the state government, will take another look at educational aid and possibly scrap the present Minimum Foundation Program which determines how much money each county gets. "You always hear those rumors," Boyd said. "But the people who are fairly knowledgeable with the program and those who have worked with it the most don't agree with those who advocate doing away with it." Boyd said the program merely is a distribution formula and. an analysis of figures would show that the amounts differ little from computations on a different method of distribution, such as use of average daily attendance figures. TALLAHASSEE (AP) -The Florida Senate's top authority on public education predicts the 1969 Legislature will take a close look at the state's school system but will make no sensational changes. "We have got to be careful and realistic in our approach.1' said Sen. Wilbut Boyd, who is expected to continue as chairman of the Public Education Committee. "We have got to do it in a way the taxpayers can afford and still provide quality education." The Palmetto Democrat said the Legislature will be looking at all parts of the education program in a search for places where improvements can be made. However, he said, particular attention will be paid to two new ideas which were approved by the special education session earlier this year. The Educational Improvement Fund which provides state funds to counties for local initiative merits particular attention, Boyd said. "I think something real good can come from this local flexibiltiy and many counties will come up with things to improve education," he said. "If it works, we can do it in othercounties." Boyd, 42, who has served in the Legislature since 1958, said he is pleased with improvement fund operations. "1 think we have made real progress," he said.
