Dr. Jayson Godsey, Pastor of Faith Baptist Church in Cadillac, offered the following invocation:

“Heavenly Father, we come to You today in prayer, thankful for this day and this great country that we live in, and pray that You would continue to bless her as You have done in the past.

We ask You to bless our President, Donald Trump, and his staff, and give them guidance as they seek to continue to make America great.

We pray for our State, and for our Governor and her staff as she leads here in Michigan.

Now Father, we pray for this body, that You would give them the wisdom of Solomon so that they might effectively do their work of governing; and where they lack wisdom, let them ask of You, ‘that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.’ (James 1:5)

We pray that You give them the character of David, who was known as a man after God’s own heart, not a perfect man but an upright man. In like manner, help this body to rule and judge righteous judgment, understanding that ‘righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.’ (Prov. 14:34)

We pray, Father, that You would give this body the courage of Daniel, who was a statesman in a time when standing up the for truth and the things of God were not popular and yet he stood determining that pleasing God was more important than pleasing men.

Finally, Lord, we pray that You would give them the selflessness of Jesus, Who was willing to lay down His life for others. The Bible says, ‘Greater love has no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.’ (John 15:13) Help, I pray, this body of representatives to have the mind of Christ and be able to sacrifice their own personal agendas or political plans for the furtherance and future of our great state.

Bless now, I pray, Lord, all those that love and follow You. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.”

Notices

May 15, 2019

Mr. Gary Randall, Clerk

Michigan House of Representatives

State Capitol Building

Lansing, MI 48913

Dear Mr. Clerk,

This letter is to notify you that I am removing Representative Larry Inman from the following committees:

• Subcommittee on Joint Capitol Outlay

• Subcommittee on School Aid and Education

• Subcommittee on Health and Human Services

Sincerely,

By unanimous consent the House returned to the order of

Motions and Resolutions

Reps. Miller, Allor, Chirkun, Clemente, Crawford, Haadsma, Hope, Liberati, Manoogian, Shannon, Sneller and Stone offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 98.

A resolution to declare May 15, 2019, as Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Awareness Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, It is important to increase awareness of tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) and support programs to increase research and improve treatment of tuberous sclerosis. It is also vital to improve training and support for individuals with tuberous sclerosis and those who care for individuals with tuberous sclerosis; and

Whereas, The Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance is the only national voluntary health organization dedicated to finding a cure for TSC and improving the lives of those affected through research, support, and education; and

Whereas, TSC affects an estimated 1 in every 6,000 live births in America; and

Whereas, TSC affects some people severely, while others are so mildly affected that it often goes undiagnosed; and

Whereas, People with TSC often develop epilepsy and autism. In fact, TSC is one of the leading known genetic causes of epilepsy and over half of those who have TSC also have autism. Many other individuals encounter behavioral and learning problems. Despite this, many professionals in the medical and educational fields are still unaware of the best methods to diagnose and treat TSC; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare May15, 2019, as Tuberous Sclerosis Awareness Day in the state of Michigan. We recognize and commend the families and individuals affected by TSC for their sacrifice and dedication in dealing with this devastating condition. We commend them for providing the special needs of both children and adults with TSC and for absorbing significant financial costs for treatment and support services; and be it further

Resolved, That we stress the need to begin early intervention services soon after a child has been diagnosed with TSC. Early intervention strategies are the primary therapeutic options for young people with TSC, and early intervention significantly improves outcomes for people with TSC. Early intervention can reduce the level of funding and services needed later in life.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Crawford, Allor, Reilly, Vaupel, Chirkun, Wozniak, O’Malley, Bellino, Frederick, Rendon, Sneller, Warren, Brann, Cynthia Johnson, Calley, Gay‑Dagnogo, LaFave, Cherry, Schroeder, Webber, Whitsett, Clemente, Garza, Haadsma, Hope, Kahle, Liberati, Manoogian, Peterson, Pohutsky, Shannon and Stone offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 99.

A resolution to declare May 15, 2019, as Older Michiganians Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Over one million Michiganians age 60 and over deserve our utmost respect and gratitude for their many contributions to our communities and our state. Older citizens play a vital role in cities and towns all across our great state; and

Whereas, Older Michiganians are active supporters of Michigan’s economy, workforce, charities, religious institutions, local communities, and institutions of government. This group is one of our state’s greatest resources of understanding our past and improving our future. They are truly a foundation upon which we can build a better tomorrow; and

Whereas, This invaluable group of citizens is being honored and admired for their many years of service to the state of Michigan. They have been an indispensable source of knowledge and inspiration throughout the years; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare May 15, 2019, as Older Michiganians Day in the state of Michigan. We honor our state’s population of older citizens.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Reilly, Allor, Chirkun, Crawford and Kahle offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 100.

A resolution to declare May 16, 2019, as Home Education Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The state of Michigan is committed to excellence in education; and

Whereas, Michigan law affirms that it is the natural, fundamental right of parents and legal guardians to determine and direct the care, teaching, and education of their children; and

Whereas, Research demonstrates conclusively that educational alternatives and direct family participation improve academic performance; and

Whereas, Families engaged in home-based education are not dependent on public, tax-funded resources for their children’s education, thus saving Michigan taxpayers millions of dollars annually; and

Whereas, Educating children at home was the predominant form of education during much of our nation’s history; and

Whereas, Home education has a long history of success in our country, producing such notable Americans as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Patrick Henry, John Quincy Adams, John Marshall, Robert E. Lee, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Helen Keller, Clara Barton, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Franklin D. Roosevelt, George Patton, Douglas MacArthur, Frank Lloyd Wright, John Philip Sousa, and Tim Tebow among many others; and

Whereas, Michigan’s home educated students are being equipped to be successful, informed, engaged, ethical, and productive citizens who enrich our society and contribute to the well-being of our state; and

Whereas, Michigan parents who home educate their children at their own expense are dedicating their time and talents to ensuring that their child’s academic, spiritual, physical, psychological, social, and emotional needs are met, and are therefore to be commended for their extraordinary sacrifice and commitment; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare May 16, 2019, as Home Education Day in the state of Michigan. We call this observance to the attention of all our citizens; and be it further

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be transmitted to the Michigan Christian Homeschool Network organization with our highest esteem.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Rabhi, Gay‑Dagnogo, Lilly, Brixie, Tyrone Carter, Hoadley, Hertel, Sabo, Elder, Coleman, Lasinski, Hammoud, Brann, Marino, Inman, Mueller, Reilly, Warren, Cynthia Johnson, Chirkun, Clemente, Ellison, Garza, Haadsma, Liberati, Manoogian, Peterson, Pohutsky, Shannon, Sneller, Sowerby and Stone offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 101.

A resolution to urge the U.S. Congress to enact legislation preventing federal regulators from sanctioning depository institutions for providing financial services to legitimate marijuana-related businesses in states where marijuana has been legalized.

Whereas, The medical and recreational marijuana industries are continually growing across states in the country, contributing billions of dollars to the economy. Many states have legalized the use of medical and/or recreational marijuana, while additional states may do so in the future; and

Whereas, Voters of the state of Michigan have approved the legalization of regulated medical and recreational marijuana use; and

Whereas, Marijuana is still illegal under federal law, creating confusion and uncertainty in banking, taxation, and other matters. Because of the federal prohibition, there is an extreme risk to provide financial services to marijuana-related businesses and service providers, resulting in a cash-intensive industry. In turn, it is very difficult for such businesses to accept noncash payments from customers and make noncash payments to employees, suppliers, governments, and others; and

Whereas, The proliferation of cash in the marijuana industry has given rise to significant public safety risks, including in Michigan’s communities. Holding large amounts of cash heightens the risk of robbery and violence; and

Whereas, Bringing the marijuana sector into the traditional financial services system is in the interest of the state and its residents. This development will increase public safety, grow the economy, and create jobs. Moreover, it will make transacting business with, and collecting taxes from, the marijuana industry easier. The federal government should respect the authority of Michigan and other states that have enacted policies concerning marijuana use; and

Whereas, The Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act of 2019 has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives (H.R. 1595) to provide safe harbor from federal regulators for depository institutions that provide financial services to marijuana-related businesses and service providers in states that exercise jurisdiction over the marijuana industry. The measure has received bipartisan support; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge the U.S. Congress to enact legislation preventing federal regulators from sanctioning depository institutions for providing financial services to legitimate marijuana-related businesses in states where marijuana has been legalized; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Financial Services.
