Rep. Matt Lori, from the 59th District, offered the following invocation:

“Opportunity is defined as a favorable juncture of circumstances, a good chance for advancement or progress.

In Matthew, Chapter 5, Jesus describes opportunity as meeting with and working with those that may oppose you.

Today, Dear Lord, we pray for opportunity:

Opportunity to pray freely,

Opportunity to live and work together

Opportunity to remember sacrifices of those who made Freedom possible

Opportunity for forgiveness and to be forgiven

Opportunity presented to us, seen and unseen to advance Your work here on Earth.

And Lord, we pray for opportunism - the art of knowing and taking advantage of circumstances presented to us.

We thank You for this Day in Michigan - and for the opportunity for a better tomorrow.”

Motions and Resolutions

Reps. Dillon, Barnett, Brown, Constan, Darany, Heise, Kurtz, LeBlanc, Liss, Segal, Slavens and Tyler offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 93.

A resolution to declare May 25, 2011, as Missing Children’s Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, According to the U.S. Department of Justice, in one year there were nearly 800,000 children missing; and

Whereas, There is an estimated average of 2,200 children reported missing to law enforcement agencies daily; and

Whereas, Over 58,000 of these children are victims of non-family abductions and more than 200,000 are the victims of family abductions; and

Whereas, The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) exists as a resource to help prevent child abduction and sexual exploitation; to help find missing children; and to assist victims of child abduction and sexual exploitation, their families, and the professionals who serve them. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s recovery rate has grown from 62% in 1990 to 96% of domestically missing children, but too many children still remain among the missing; and

Whereas, This special day is a time to remember those children who are missing and give hope to their families; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare May 25, 2011, as Missing Children’s Day in the state of Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That we urge the participation of local government, law enforcement, schools, community-based organizations, and families in the protection and education of all individuals about child abduction and sexual exploitation, appropriate protective measures, and ways to respond and seek help from law enforcement, social services, and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

Sec. 208. Unless otherwise specified, public universities receiving appropriations in part 1 shall use the Internet to fulfill the reporting requirements of this act. This requirement may include transmission of reports via electronic mail to the recipients identified for each reporting requirement, or it may include placement of reports on an Internet or Intranet site.

Sec. 209. Funds appropriated in part 1 shall not be used for the purchase of foreign goods or services, or both, if competitively priced and of comparable quality American goods and services, or both, are available. Preference shall be given to goods or services, or both, manufactured or provided by Michigan businesses if they are competitively priced and of comparable value. In addition, preference shall be given to goods or services, or both, that are manufactured or provided by Michigan businesses owned and operated by veterans if they are competitively priced and of comparable quality.

Sec. 210. It is the intent of the legislature that the funds appropriated in part 1 to state institutions of higher education shall not be used to enter into a lease or to purchase a vehicle assembled or manufactured outside of the United States, and that preference be given to vehicles assembled or manufactured in Michigan.

Sec. 211. The principal executive officer of each public university receiving appropriations in part 1 shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that businesses in deprived and depressed communities compete for and perform contracts to provide services, supplies, or both. Each principal executive officer shall strongly encourage firms with which the university contracts to subcontract with businesses in depressed and deprived communities for services, supplies, or both.

Sec. 212. (1) The funds appropriated in part 1 to public universities shall be paid out of the state treasury and distributed by the state treasurer to the respective institutions in 11 equal monthly installments on the sixteenth of each month, or the next succeeding business day, beginning with October 16, 2011.

Sec. 213. Funds received by the state from the federal government or private sources for the use of a college or university are appropriated for the purposes for which they are provided. The acceptance and use of federal or private funds do not place an obligation upon the legislature to continue the purposes for which the funds are made available.

(5) If the department of treasury increases the maximum award per eligible student from that provided in the previous fiscal year, it shall not have the effect of reducing the number of eligible students receiving awards in relation to the total number of eligible applicants. Any increase in the maximum grant shall be proportional for all eligible students receiving awards.

(6) Veterans administration benefits shall not be considered in determining eligibility for the award of scholarships under 1964 PA 208, MCL 390.971 to 390.981.

The determination and actions shall be reported to the state budget director and the house and senate fiscal agencies no later than February 15, 2012. If award adjustments are necessary, the students shall be notified of the adjustment by the third Monday in February.

(4) Any unexpended and unencumbered funds remaining on September 30, 2012 from the amounts appropriated in part 1 for the tuition grant program shall not lapse on September 30, 2012, but shall continue to be available for expenditure for tuition grants provided in the 2012-2013 fiscal year under a work project account. The use of these unexpended fiscal year 2011-2012 funds shall terminate at the end of the 2012-2013 fiscal year.

(5) The department of treasury shall continue a proportional tuition grant maximum award level for recipients enrolled less than full-time in a given semester or term.

(6) If the department of treasury increases the maximum award per eligible student from that provided in the previous fiscal year, it shall not have the effect of reducing the number of eligible students receiving awards in relation to the total number of eligible applicants.

(2) The department of agriculture and rural development and Michigan State University, in consultation with agricultural commodity groups and other interested parties, shall develop project GREEEN and its program priorities.

(3) By September 30, 2012, Michigan State University shall submit a report to the house and senate appropriations subcommittees on agriculture and on higher education, the house and senate standing committees on agriculture, the house and senate fiscal agencies, and the state budget director for the preceding school fiscal year regarding expenditures and programmatic outcomes of the agricultural experiment station and cooperative extension service. The report shall include, but is not limited to:

(a) Total funds expended by the agricultural experiment station and cooperative extension service identified by state, local, private, federal, and university fund sources.

(2) Not later than September 30, 2012, Michigan State University shall submit a report to the house and senate appropriations subcommittees on agriculture and on higher education, the house and senate standing committees on agriculture, the house and senate fiscal agencies, and the state budget director for the preceding school fiscal year detailing, but not limited to:

(a) Total funds expended by the agricultural experiment station and by the cooperative extension service identified by state, local, private, federal, and university fund sources.

(b) A review of major programs within both the agricultural experiment station and the cooperative extension service with specific reference to accomplishments and impacts.

Sec. 434. Included in the appropriation in part 1 for Michigan State University is $80,000.00 for the Michigan future farmers of America association. This $80,000.00 appropriation shall not supplant any existing support that Michigan State University provides to the Michigan future farmers of America association.

Sec. 436. (1) The amounts appropriated in part 1 for public university tuition restraint incentives shall only be paid to a public university that certifies to the state budget director by August 31, 2011 that its board did not adopt an increase in tuition and fee rates for resident undergraduate students after February 1, 2011 for the 2010-2011 academic year and that its board will not adopt an increase in tuition and fee rates for resident undergraduate students for the 2011-2012 academic year that is greater than the calculated average of annual statewide changes in tuition and fee rates for academic years 2006-2007 through 2010-2011, as determined by the state budget director. As used in this subsection:

(a) “Fee” means any board-authorized fee that will be paid by more than 1/2 of all resident undergraduate students at least once during their enrollment at a public university. A university increasing a fee that applies to a specific subset of students or courses shall provide sufficient information to prove that the increase applied to that subset will not cause the increase in the average amount of board-authorized total tuition and fees paid by resident undergraduate students in the 2011-2012 academic year to exceed the limit established in this subsection.

(b) “Tuition and fee rate” means the average of rates for all undergraduate classes, based on the highest board-authorized rate for any semester during the academic year.

(2) The state budget director shall implement uniform reporting requirements to ensure that a public university receiving an appropriation under part 1 has satisfied the tuition restraint requirements of this section. The state budget director shall have the sole authority to determine if a state university has met the requirements of this section. Information reported by a public university to the state budget director under this subsection shall also be reported to the house and senate appropriations subcommittees on higher education and the house and senate fiscal agencies.

(3) In conjunction with the uniform reporting requirements established under subjection (2), each public university shall also report the following information to the house and senate appropriations subcommittees on higher education, the house and senate fiscal agencies, and the state budget director by August 31, 2011:

(a) Actual fiscal year 2010-2011 and budgeted fiscal year 2011-2012 total general fund tuition and fee revenue.

(b) Actual fiscal year 2010-2011 and budgeted fiscal year 2011-2012 total general fund revenue.

(c) Actual fiscal year 2010-2011 and budgeted fiscal year 2011-2012 general fund expenditures for student financial aid.

(d) Actual fiscal year 2010-2011 and budgeted fiscal year 2011-2012 total general fund expenditures.

(e) Actual fiscal year 2010-2011 and budgeted fiscal year 2011-2012 total fiscal year equated student enrollment.

Sec. 437. It is the intent of the legislature that, in subsequent budget years, public university operations funding appropriated by the legislature shall be allocated to each university using a formula developed and enacted by the legislature. Such a formula shall incent universities to provide, in a cost-effective and timely manner, postsecondary opportunities for students that are both accessible and affordable and that result in a highly skilled workforce.

Sec. 440. All public universities shall submit the amount of tuition and fees actually charged to a full-time resident undergraduate student for academic year 2011-2012 as part of their higher education institutional data inventory (HEIDI) data by August 31, 2011. A public university shall report any revisions for any semester of the reported academic year 2011-2012 tuition and fee charges to HEIDI within 15 days of being adopted.

Sec. 460. From the amount appropriated in part 1 to Central Michigan University for operations, $29,700.00 shall be paid to Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College for the costs of waiving tuition for North American Indians under 1976 PA 174, MCL 390.1251 to 390.1253.

Sec. 461. From the amount appropriated in part 1 to Lake Superior State University for operations, $100,000.00 shall be paid to Bay Mills Community College for the costs of waiving tuition for North American Indians under 1976 PA 174, MCL 390.1251 to 390.1253.

Sec. 466. Public universities shall coordinate their purchases of goods and services whenever possible. This may include, but is not limited to, group purchases for vehicles, utilities, supplies, electronic equipment, maintenance equipment, books, and contractual services. To the extent possible, the public universities shall use both the “Michigan delivering extended agreements locally” (MiDEAL) purchasing services of the state department of technology, management, and budget that makes state contracts available to local units of government, colleges, and universities and the purchasing services available through the state’s membership in the Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC). Not later than January 1 of each year, the presidents council, state universities of Michigan shall submit to the members of the house and senate appropriations subcommittees on higher education, the house and senate fiscal agencies, and the state budget director a report on group or pooled purchases and the savings achieved by the public universities in the previous fiscal year.

Sec. 470. By February 15, 2012, each public university receiving funds in part 1 shall submit a report to the house and senate appropriations subcommittees on higher education, the house and senate fiscal agencies, and the state budget director regarding academic program accreditation.

Expenditure data may be reported on either a calendar year or fiscal year basis.

Sec. 471. By February 15, 2012, each public university receiving funds in part 1 shall submit a report to the house and senate appropriations subcommittees on higher education, the house and senate fiscal agencies, and the state budget director regarding the rejection of transfer credits by the university in the prior year. The report shall include information on the number of credits earned by incoming students at other postsecondary institutions, with the equivalent of a letter grade of C or higher, that were rejected by the university for transfer, reported by both academic program area and prior institution, along with explanatory information regarding the rationale for the rejection of the credits.
