The following report was submitted
to the house yesterday afternoon by
the special committee appointed for
the purpose The report shows most
conclusively that tho legislature will
have to be decidedly economical dur
ing this session unless taxes are
raised considerably
House of Representatives state of
Florida Tallahassee April 22 1909
Hon Ion Farris Speaker of the
House of Representatives
Sir Your committee appointed
under house resolution No 21 for the
purpose of securing information to
the house of all the resources and ap
propriations of the state so that at
the end of the session or any time
during the session the house may
know the appropriations of this3 g
islnture shall exceed its resources
and keeping up with all laws carrying
an appropriation or providing an ad
ditional revenue beg leave to make
the following report
Wo find on page 9 of the treasur
ers report an itemized list of the
general revenue fund of 1908 amount
ing to 97568618 This does not in
clude any balance but actual receipts
into the general revenue fund from
Jan 1st to Dec 31st 1908
Unless this legislature provides for
additional revenue the state will
have in its general revenue fund dur
ing its next two years in round num
bers 2000000 or 1000000 per year
We also find in the comptrollers
report on pages from 24 to 37 inclu
sive the estimated itemized expenses
of the entire state government for two
years commencing July 1 1909 and
ending June 301911 the total amount
Ing to 137578247 or 68789100 per
year I

pital for insane
Maintenance of lunatics
Cost of assessment railroads

Interest on bonds in educational
funds
Stationer
State auditor and clerks
Assistant state auditor
The above means that at the same
rate of taxes and revenue of 1908 and
the expense of the state government
as asked for the next two years this
legislature will have 624218 to ap
propriate to the state schools and all
other purposes except as above men
tioned for the next two years or
312109 per year If we appropriate
more than this amount we will either
have to increase the revenue or there
will be no money to pay for it
Your committee wishes to ask the
chief clerk to furnisu it with the
amount of every bill which passes
providing for a revenue
All revenues such as the one mill
school tax and the state hire of con
victs the pension tax and the dif
ferent government college funds are
all supposed to balance within them
selves and are not considered in this
report
From time to time your committee
will report to the legislature of ap
propriations and additional revenues
