Rev. Dr. Hurley J. Coleman Jr., Pastor of World Outreach Campus Church in Saginaw, offered the following invocation:

“Gracious Creator and Maker of all things, what an awesome moment it is that You have provided for this grandson of humble sharecroppers in rural Tennessee, great grandson of slaves, and second generation of leaders in the community of faith.

I am blessed to live in a state that includes these words in the preamble to its constitution:

We the people of the State of Michigan, grateful to the Almighty God for the blessing of freedom, and earnestly desiring to secure these blessings undiminished to ourselves and to our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution.

You have blessed us with a state with beautiful vistas of nature and geography, an array of diversity of life and citizens unparalleled. You have given us a home of freedom and opportunity, vaunted by words in our constitution that provide that ‘Every person shall be at liberty to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience.(Art.1, sec. 4)

This day, we invoke that freedom to bless these who will make decisions in our behalf, that they will with grace and mercy pursue the course of excellent leadership both in this House and at home; that they will with gratitude and thanksgiving consider the poor and needy as well those who are experiencing the best that life offers.

Now unto him that is able to keep You from falling, and to present You before his presence with glory, to the Only Wise God be majesty, dominion, and power forever.

Amen.”

Whereas, Junior Achievement is a not-for-profit organization that fosters partnerships between business and educators and uses hands-on curriculum to help young people understand the economics of life; and

Whereas, Junior Achievement’s purpose is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy; and

House Resolution No. 47.

A resolution to declare April 2, 2015, as Autism Awareness Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, There are 1.5 million Americans living with the effects of autism spectrum disorder; and

Whereas, Autism is four times more likely to occur in boys than in girls; and

Whereas, Autism is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain, impacting development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills; and

Whereas, Autism knows no racial, ethnic, social boundaries, family income, lifestyle, or educational levels, and can affect any family and any child; and

Whereas, The demands of living with a person with autism are great and families frequently experience significant financial costs for specialized education and support services. The uniqueness of each individual with autism makes the experience of living with autism different for each family; and

Whereas, Autism is a lifelong condition and the necessary support and treatment changes as people on the spectrum move through major life phases. Their quality of life depends not only upon the foundation that is provided in childhood, but on ongoing supports that are specific to the educational, medical, social, recreational, family, and employment needs of the individual; and

Whereas, Early intervention services are the primary therapeutic option for young people with autism and that early intervention significantly improves the outcome for people with autism and can reduce the level of funding and services needed to treat people with autism later in life; and

Whereas, The Michigan Developmental Disabilities Council supports people with developmental disabilities, including those with autism, to achieve their life’s dreams and ensure that all citizens of Michigan have the opportunities and support to achieve their full potential; and

Whereas, On March 23, 2007, Congress designated April as National Autism Awareness Month, supporting efforts to increase funding for research into the causes and treatment of autism and to improve training and support for individuals with autism and those who care for individuals with autism; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare April 2, 2015, as Autism Awareness Day in the state of Michigan.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Guerra, Cochran, Geiss, Brinks, Pagan, Schor, Plawecki, Moss, Driskell, LaVoy, Faris, Durhal, Sarah Roberts, Greig, Dillon, Smiley, Chang, Love, Singh, Wittenberg, Maturen, Hovey-Wright and Hoadley offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 49.

A resolution to urge Michigan institutions of higher learning to improve policies, training, and victims’ services regarding cases of sexual assault and stalking.

Whereas, College-aged women are four times more likely than any other age group to face sexual assault. It is estimated that one in five women are targets of sexual assault during the course of their college career; and

Whereas, There are many barriers to reporting, including inadequate university policies, causing the problem to remain hidden on campuses around the country. Fewer than 5 percent of actual or attempted sexual assaults are reported to campus authorities or law enforcement; and

Whereas, Schools should be adopting best practices to address sexual assault and improve the campus climate. Best practices include programs for awareness, bystander intervention, risk reduction, how to report incidents, victims’ rights and options, establishment of a campus resource team to review policies, and possible oversight by a state governmental entity; and

Whereas, Many of these practices are required under federal law. Title IX of 1972 requires colleges and universities receiving federal funding to fight gender-based violence and harassment and respond to victims’ needs in order to provide all students equal access to education. It requires procedures for students to file complaints and the appointment of a Title IX coordinator to oversee this and other equity issues. Under the federal Violence Against Women Act, a 2013 amendment to the 1990 Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Police Crime Statistics Act, higher education institutions must report domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking incidents, along with sexual assaults, on campus, publicize prevention and response policies, and provide victims with clear options and support; and

Whereas, Many colleges and universities, including the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, and Grand Valley State University, are under federal investigation for possible violations of anti-discrimination law in their handling of sexual violence reports; and

Whereas, There is no greater priority for institutions of higher learning than the safety of their students, faculty, and staff. Educational equity for women and girls requires fair, responsive, fully developed campus sexual assault policies, knowledgeable administrators, and, ultimately, an end to sexual violence on campuses; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge Michigan institutions of higher learning to:

• Update policies and training regarding cases of sexual assault and stalking and mandate reporting requirements.

• Provide victims of stalking and sexual assault with written information regarding the victim’s rights and options under the institution’s sexual assault policy, as well as establish access for victims to free and confidential counseling and advocacy services, either on or off campus.

• Establish campus resource teams to review their policies for sexual assault cases and recommend improvements.

• Establish training requirements regarding the handling of sexual assault cases for institution’s Title IX coordinator and special police force, campus police force, or campus safety personnel and for local or state police who respond to campus incidents.

; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Presidents Council, State Universities of Michigan, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Education.

Reps. Graves, Faris, Smiley, Neeley, Phelps, Greig, Heise, Hoadley and Leutheuser offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 50.

A resolution to urge the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran to release American citizen and Michigan resident, Amir Hekmati, after more than 1,000 days of unjust and unlawful imprisonment.

Whereas, Amir Hekmati is being unjustly and illegally imprisoned by the Iranian government on false charges of espionage. Seized during a visit to his grandmother and other relatives in Iran, this graduate of Flint Central High School and U.S. Marine veteran has suffered through nearly four years of mistreatment and injustice; and

Whereas, Iran’s own courts have found that the charges against Amir Hekmati are unsubstantiated. Originally sentenced to death after months in solitary confinement, his sentence was overturned by an Iranian higher court for lack of evidence. He has since been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment in a secret, closed-door trial that neither he nor his attorney were made aware of or allowed to attend; and

Whereas, Amir Hekmati has been used long enough as a political pawn. Justice and simple human decency should be allowed to prevail, and Amir Hekmati released so that he may be reunited with his family in Michigan who anxiously await his safe return; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran to release American citizen and Michigan resident, Amir Hekmati, after more than 1,000 days of unjust and unlawful imprisonment; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the U.S. Secretary of State and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Military and Veterans Affairs.

THIS RESOLUTION IS OFFERED TO COMPLY WITH THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE V, SECTION 2 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN OF 1963.

Reps. Yanez and Banks offered the following concurrent resolution:

House Concurrent Resolution No. 6.

A concurrent resolution to disapprove Executive Order No. 2015-4, creating the Department of Health and Human Services.

Whereas, Pursuant to Article V, Section 2 of the Constitution of the State of Michigan of 1963, the governor may make changes in the organization of the executive branch or in the assignment of functions among its units which he considers necessary for efficient administration; and

Whereas, On February 6, 2015, Governor Rick Snyder issued Executive Order No. 2015-4 to merge the current Department of Human Services and the current Department of Community Health into a single new department, the Department of Health and Human Services; and

Whereas, Pursuant to Article V, Section 2, the legislature has 60 calendar days of a regular session to disapprove, by a resolution concurred in by a majority of the members elected to and serving in each house, an executive order reorganizing state government; and

Whereas, The legislature cannot determine that this merger is in the best interest of the people of the state of Michigan and opposes it until the governor can demonstrate how it will lead to administrative efficiencies, cost savings, and improved services to Michigan citizens; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That, pursuant to Article V, Section 2 of the Constitution of the State of Michigan of 1963, we disapprove Executive Order No. 2015-4, creating the Department of Health and Human Services; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Honorable Richard D. Snyder, Governor of the state of Michigan.

The concurrent resolution was referred to the Committee on Appropriations.

______

Rep. Chang, having reserved the right to explain her protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

“Mr. Speaker and members of the House:

I am voting NO on House Bill 4041 which would require that a student meets school attendance requirements in order for the family to receive FIP benefits. This is punitive and does not address underlying issues that would cause that student to be truant. I am very concerned that we would remove an entire family from benefits that could help them make ends meet because of something the family members may not entirely have control over. Although there is a provision regarding families getting back on benefits later on, I am extremely concerned that a family may enter financial crisis or become homeless after losing their benefits.”

Rep. Schor, having reserved the right to explain his protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

“Mr. Speaker and members of the House:

I have worked on truancy for many years. I helped draft the Manual to Combat Truancy while at the US Department of Education. I also introduced a bill to prohibit drivers licenses if children are chronically truant.

This bill has good intentions, but causes me concerns.

When I was first running for office, I talked to a parent who has a daughter that is continually truant. He drops his daughter off at the school, often making him late for work, and she immediately goes out the back door. He can’t stop her and he can’t keep her home because he has to work.

This bill punishes families with children under 16 for the action of the child. Not only that, this gives that child the power to deny benefits to the whole family.

Yesterday there was an amendment that would have limited benefit removal to only the child. That was defeated. The sponsor said that DHS has rules and procedures so the family won’t inappropriately be affected. But these requirement aren’t in the bill. If they were, I would support this bill.

Today I offered an amendment requiring the Department to create a process that ensures that these situations are properly reviewed so that families are not affected wrongly. This would codify what the sponsor says is happening. After I drafted this amendment, I received the memo that the Director of Field Operations for DHS issued to County Directors regarding mandatory school attendance policy starting in April of 2013. This memo says that families with students from 6-15 will be cut off for the entire family if the child doesn’t maintain regular school attendance. It then says that every county must begin recording and reporting the number of cases closed due to truancy and provides a surveymonkey link for people to put this info into an excel spreadsheet. We were told there are processes to ensure that families are not cut off. But the memo says otherwise and only requires reporting.

I am happy that we are addressing truancy and I believe the sponsor’s intentions are pure. I compliment him for taking this on. When parents are keeping children home and enabling truancy, they should be punished. But this bill goes too far. Instead of punishing the child that is unruly, this bill could punish children for the actions of their siblings, and could punish parents for the actions of their unruly children.

This bill says nothing about protecting parents and children who are doing everything right and has us trust DHS to do the right thing even though that ability is not in the law. I hope this is fixed as the bill moves through the process, but I am forced to vote no today on this bill.”
