The 1987 Legislative session is one that will be remembered for many years; it signifies the year Florida grew up. As Sophocles said, "One must wait until the evening to see how splendid the day has been"; this landmark session will not easily be assessed for some time. For the past several years, Florida has been working to create a vision for its future and this year took its first steps toward that future. We have only just begun and, like the beginning of any long journey, we began by taking a first step. Our commitment today must be followed by action tomorrow.
