- Senate Governmental Organization Committee discussing the annual legislative session proposal - Tallahassee, Florida
- Photographed on May 17, 1965.
- Accompany note: "Sen. Merrill P. Barber, of Vero Beach, second from left, who introduced a constitutional amendment calling for a 45-day annual legislative session, go down in defeat in a Senate committee today. Arguing against the measure was Sen. Doyle Carlton, gesturing at right. Carlton, of Wauchula, maintained that annual session would eliminate a 'lot of good solid, grass roots people who cannot devote that much time to serving the state.' Left is Sen. Welborn Daniel, of Clermont, chairman of the Governmental Organization Committee, which voted 8-2 against Barber's amendment."
