Rep. Dave Pagel, from the 78th District, offered the following invocation:

“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Lord, help us ever be mindful that our proper attitude and mindset each and every day is to take joy in the day before us, to be glad and thankful for life and for the opportunities and challenges that confront us. Help us also be mindful that we are called to make the very best of this life through the exercise of virtues like faith, diligence, integrity and compassion.

I pray this morning for the staff who work in our offices and help us craft legislation, analyze issues and serve our constituents. Help us to be mindful of the upheavals so many of them face at this time, such as the searching for new positions to work at next term and the financial uncertainties that can accompany that process. Help us to remember to treat them with the dignity, respect and gratitude that they deserve. And please be with each of them, giving them guidance and wisdom as they pursue their future opportunities.

We give You thanks and praise,

Amen.”

Whereas, The members of this legislative body were saddened to learn of the passing of former state representative Mary Schroer. For six years, she represented the people of northern Ann Arbor and northwest Washtenaw County with passion and energy; and

Whereas, A graduate of Eastern Michigan University, Mary Schroer was active over the course of her life in numerous community and civic organizations, working on women’s, social justice, education, environmental, and other issues. During the 1970s, she participated in legislative and gubernatorial campaigns, and her efforts eventually led her to the state capitol as a legislative assistant for former state Senator Lana Pollack. After 10 years as legislative staff, she was elected to the House of Representatives in 1992; and

Whereas, Mary Schroer represented the Fifty-second House District for six years, championing the causes important to her and the people of her district.

Whereas, It is the privilege of this body to honor Representative Bettie Cook Scott as her time in the Michigan House of Representatives concludes and to extend our thanks. Her service and leadership in this legislative body will be missed; and

Whereas, Bettie Cook Scott brought a wealth of knowledge and local expertise with her when she rejoined the Michigan Legislature this term.

The Speaker, on behalf of the entire membership of the House of Representatives, offered the following resolution:

Whereas, It is with great appreciation for his service to the people of Michigan that the members of this legislative body join in expressing our appreciation to Representative Henry Yanez.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Hammoud, Elder, Lasinski, Cochran, Wittenberg, Geiss, Garrett, Pagan, Green, Neeley, Yancey, Hoadley, Camilleri, Greig, Brinks, Cambensy, Jones, Kosowski, Love, Liberati, Maturen, Moss, Sneller and Sowerby offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 464.

A resolution to declare December 10-14, 2018, as International Human Rights Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The current world refugee crisis has over 65 million refugees fleeing war, persecution, and natural disasters, most of whom have traveled thousands of miles in search of safety and security. It is estimated that more than 50 percent of the world’s refugees are children. No aspect of a child’s life is spared from the effect of becoming a refugee, and they have special needs that must be identified and met; and

Whereas, Education is a key factor for the development of refugee children and integration into their host country or state. Federal education programs, incorporating English language instruction classes along with interpreter services for students and parents, can provide opportunities for all refugee students, regardless of their location. After-school tutoring programs, summer clubs, and parental involvement programs can encourage full participation in school activities and completion of high school. Bilingual and bicultural counselors can serve as mentors in how to navigate poverty, racism, and xenophobia, often encountered in American schools; and

Whereas, The United States should provide assistance to needy refugees to ensure their successful and peaceful integration into American communities. In keeping with the International Human Rights Day, observed on December 10th around the world, the Michigan House of Representatives recognizes December 10-14 as International Human Rights Week. This week is observed to urge a commitment to equality, justice, and dignity beyond all differences in culture, religion, opportunity, or race; and

Whereas, World leaders for peace, like the United States, have a moral imperative to meet the needs of the most vulnerable, including refugee children within our borders. Increased federal funding for educational programs that support refugee children is a vital step in meeting this obligation; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare December 10-14, 2018, as International Human Rights Week in the state of Michigan.

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

Reps. Gay-Dagnogo, Pagan, Lasinski, Yancey, Geiss, Cambensy, Garrett, Sneller, Durhal, Howrylak, Zemke, Ellison, Sowerby, Clemente, Camilleri, Anthony, Phelps, Yanez, Elder, Hoadley, Faris, Guerra, McCready, Jones, Rabhi, Kosowski, Kelly, Liberati and Maturen offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 465.

A resolution to memorialize Congress and the administration to recognize industrial hemp as a valuable agricultural commodity and to take certain steps to remove barriers in order to encourage the commercial production of this crop.

Whereas, Industrial hemp refers to the non-drug oilseed and fiber varieties of Cannabis which are cultivated exclusively for fiber, stalk, and seed. Industrial hemp is genetically distinct from the drug varieties of Cannabis, also known as marihuana. Industrial hemp has less than three tenths of one percent of the psychoactive ingredient, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The flowering tops of industrial hemp cannot produce any drug effect when smoked or ingested; and

Whereas, Congress never intended to prohibit the production of industrial hemp when restricting the production, possession, and use of marihuana. The legislative history of the federal Marihuana Tax Act, where the current definition of marihuana first appeared, shows that farmers and manufacturers of industrial hemp products were assuaged by Federal Bureau of Narcotic Commissioner Harry J. Anslinger, who promised that the proposed legislation bore no threat to them, saying “They are not only amply protected under this act, but they can go ahead and raise hemp just as they have always done it”; and

Whereas, The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled in Hemp Industries v. Drug Enforcement Administration, 357 F.3d 1012 (9th Cir. 2004), that the federal Controlled Substances Act of 1970 explicitly excludes non-psychoactive industrial hemp from the definition of marihuana. The federal government declined to appeal that decision; and

Whereas, The Controlled Substances Act of 1970 specifies the findings to which the government must attest in order to classify a substance as a Schedule I drug. Those findings include that the substance has a high potential for abuse, has no accepted medical use, and has a lack of accepted safety for use. None of these apply to industrial hemp; and

Whereas, Article 28, Section 2, of the United Nations Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, 1961, as amended by the 1972 Protocol, states that, “This Convention shall not apply to the cultivation of the cannabis plant exclusively for industrial purposes (fiber and seed) or horticultural purposes”; and

Whereas, Hemp products abound in the United States. Nutritious hemp foods can be found in grocery stores nationwide and strong durable hemp fibers can be found in the interior parts of millions of American cars. Buildings are being constructed using a hemp and lime mixture, thereby sequestering carbon. Retail sales of hemp products in this country are estimated to be $600 million in 2015; and

Whereas, American farmers are missing out an important economic opportunity. American companies are forced to import millions of dollars’ worth of hemp seed and fiber products annually from other countries, thereby effectively denying American farmers an opportunity to compete and share in the profits. Industrial hemp is a high-value, low-input crop that is not genetically modified, requires little or no pesticides, can be dry land farmed, and uses less fertilizer than wheat and corn. China is the largest supplier of raw and processed hemp fiber and Canada is the largest supplier of hemp seed and oil cake imported to the U.S. Farmers in other countries, including Canada, China, Great Britain, France, Germany, Romania, and Australia, can produce industrial hemp without undue restriction or complications; and

Whereas, Industrial and commercial grade hemp could help stimulate an economic resurgence in the city of Detroit and the state of Michigan as part of the Green Economy. Detroit has an abundance of vacant land that could be used for industrial hemp farming, as well as the processing and production of over 25,000 potential products and finished goods. This could create an economic resurgence by creating thousands of jobs for Detroit and Michigan; and

Whereas, The reluctance of the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to permit industrial hemp farming is denying agricultural producers in this country the ability to benefit from a high-value, low-input crop, which can provide significant economic benefits to producers and manufacturers. The DEA has the authority under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 to allow Michigan to regulate industrial hemp farming under existing state laws and without requiring individual federal applications and licenses; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we memorialize Congress and the administration to recognize industrial hemp as a valuable agricultural commodity and to take steps to remove barriers in order to encourage the commercial production of this crop; and be it further

Resolved, That the we urge the DEA to allow Michigan to regulate industrial hemp farming under existing state laws and regulations, or those to be passed, without requiring federal applications, licenses, or fees; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to President of the United States, the Attorney General of the United States, the Administrator of the United States Drug Enforcement Administration, the Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, the United States Secretary of Agriculture, 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 Agriculture.

______

Rep. Yaroch, 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:

While I believe that a tunnel may be the best alternative to address the Line 5 issue at this time, this bill offers no certainty to the Citizens of Michigan that the risk of a pipeline failure will be addressed.”

Rep. Geiss, 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:

Today, I voted no on senate bill 1197, which would allow the construction of a tunnel to house Line 5 under the Straits of Mackinac. Building a new tunnel and pipeline is not addressing the immediate and serious threat of a Line 5 rupture. Brokering this deal behind closed doors addresses the demand for accountability our state’s voters made last month when they elected new leadership for Michigan. The people of our state want clean water, and they don’t want to be left on the hook if, yet again, Enbridge fails to prevent a leak as has occurred in recent history in Kalamazoo. Rushing through this plan simply to prevent our state’s incoming executive officers from being able to provide their input, without taking the time to ensure new jobs provide fair wages to local workers, will put our environment, our economy and our health at risk. Furthermore, with the failure of today’s amendments to ensure that Michigan workers are primarily employed and to link their pay to the prevailing wages in order to protect the jobs and workers who would likely be working on the tunnel project, my vote against this legislation was solidified.”

Rep. Lauwers moved that House Committees be given leave to meet during the balance of today’s session.

The motion prevailed.

By unanimous consent the House returned to the order of

Comments and Recommendations

Rep. Lauwers moved that the following remarks be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Rep. Phelps:

“Those of you in your third term probably have realized that I rarely ask to speak while we are in session, and those of you who have heard me address this body know that I’m not a polished speaker. Somehow I managed to earn a bachelor’s degree without taking a single speech class throughout high school and college. I thought that I would actually get better at this as time went on, but I still feel a little nervous whenever I speak. Some of you have been good friends who have helped me improve on this by sharing some of the tricks and tips you’ve had to use to overcome this, but Mr. Speaker, picturing the audience nude just hasn’t helped me much here at the Capitol. I’ve actually found the best approach for me is to start off by talking about something that each and every one of us can support. So, unless our good friend Representative Robinson objects, I’ve asked the most talented baker I know, who also happens to be my biggest supporter and my mother, to bake a whole bunch of her famous cupcakes to share with all of you today. They’re in the cloak room now, so please help yourselves and enjoy. All I ask in return is that you pass all of my bills in the next two weeks. I know some of you might be thinking that this sounds like a bribe, but don’t worry about any of that because here at Capitol getting free food is almost treated like a professional sport and each year the big winners get their names printed in MIRS.

I was sworn into office in November of 2013 after a special election and since I was the new guy coming in half way through a term, my calendar was packed full of lunch and dinner meetings. I thought it was great until December rolled around and I read an article that referred to one of our colleagues as Free Lunch Frank. I was immediately nervous because the phrase ‘free lunch’ sounds just as catchy in front of ‘Phil’ as it did ‘Frank.’ Luckily Frank was indeed a good friend and he relieved me of my fear after we had dinner with a pair of lobbyists at the Knight Cap. It started out as just Frank, the two lobbyists and myself. Frank quickly asked the waitress to bring out five orders of Mediciettes and four orders of Angels. One of the lobbyists joked that he was glad that another Representative would be joining us to help eat all that food, but as soon as Frank heard we were expecting another guest, he sprung back into action and ordered two more of each appetizer. I left that meeting extremely full of both food and confidence that I wouldn’t be taking his crown away any time soon.

Mr. Speaker, I have been blessed to have met and made as many friends as I have in my five years of service in this chamber. I want thank a few of them for all their advice, support and their friendship. However, for all of my colleagues who like to gamble and may have placed over under bets on how many times Chief Dickson and all of our Sergeants will be thanked and praised, I won’t keep you waiting any longer. Chief Dickson and our Sergeants of Arms do a fantastic job protecting us and they do it day in and day out. I thank all of you for your dedicated service and you have earned every bit of gratitude and praise we give, and not just because I took the over bet.

To Pam Faris and Tim Sneller: your knowledge and strength has helped guide me through some very difficult times for my district and for me as a legislator and as an individual. The two of you have so much valuable insight to share, and during this age of term limits, you have been assets to our caucus and this chamber. On a side note, I want to add that nobody ever has to tell me when I have done something that Pam Faris disapproves of. It only takes one look from her to immediately put me back in my place.

Vanessa Guerra, Jewell Jones and Darrin Camilleri, the three of you impress the heck out of me. You are all bright, talented and fantastic young leaders and it brings comfort to many of us knowing that you have long careers ahead of you and that you will only get better and better at what you do.

Dr. Bizon, you are one of the most considerate and caring individuals I have ever met and those qualities are becoming more and more rare these days. Somehow you always could tell when I was struggling with health issues and you continued to surprise me with your kindness by stopping by my office to check on me or making visits to my desk to see how I was doing. You are a compassionate conservative and I hope many more learn from your actions and follow in your footsteps.

Floor Leader Lauwers, I don’t ever remember telling you this, but while I was running for office five years ago I had to make promises to my supporters and constituents that I would actually dress professionally and wear a tie if elected. You, my friend, have helped me honor that promise by having the ugliest loaner tie any of us have ever seen. Thank you!

David Rutledge, you are a true gentlemen. I’m glad I had the chance to serve with you.

Martin Howrylak, you are true to your conscience and that will always make you a true friend. Even though we didn’t get any of our Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing legislation on the Governor’s desk this term, we gave a political voice to thousands of people who never had one and I will never forget how hard you and your staff worked on that and neither will the more than 900,000 people we were fighting for.

I want to take a moment to acknowledge and thank the talented staff that we all work with each day in an attempt to make this state a better place for everyone to live. I owe each of you a heartfelt thank you for the help you provided me, especially those who helped us navigate all the moving parts of the legislation required to assist the people of Flint during their continuing struggles.

To Allison, Amanda and Kevin who worked tirelessly in my office over the past years. I can honestly say I would not have been able to do even a small fraction of what I have without you. During the early days of the water crisis our office was bombarded with calls and no matter how hard we were trying, we couldn’t get honest answers for them from our state agencies. My staff kept fighting for the residents of Flint and that made me work even harder.

Fighting for Flint during this crisis has been the most challenging and stressful job I’ve ever faced. I often tell people that I only represent 15% of the City of Flint but that 15% is responsible for 95% of my gray hair. I am pretty sure all of you here today know the basics of what went wrong in Flint and how our government failed the people who lived there, so I won’t give a history lesson on the crisis.

However, I want all of you to know how worried I am and how much anxiety I’ve been carrying around this past year. We all know we are in lame duck session and that means many people are leaving this chamber, many are leaving the Senate and the state departments will likely soon see massive reorganizations. Those of you who were here in 2016 when the state claimed responsibility for what happened in Flint will remember the large amount of information that was shared with the caucuses by state departments and the Governor’s administration. You will remember the several commissions that were formed to look into the situation and you will remember the reports and recommendations that those commissions delivered to the legislature. My anxiety has been growing since then, because in 2016 we lost dozens of legislators to term limits who knew the facts of the crisis. Now in 2018, we are losing even more representatives that have that knowledge and we are also losing many senators this time, as well. Next term there will be very few people here in the legislature who were here when the crisis began, and that worries me. The commissions that were formed to investigate Flint all made legislative recommendations. The reports they issued had multiple recommendations that were identical to the others, and many of those recommendations were to make adjustments to state law that would prevent something like this from happening ever again in Michigan. Out of the dozens of legislative recommendations made by these bi-partisan bodies, almost none have been enacted. I fear that even though the state responded to the crisis, that we have failed as lawmakers and as leaders to take what we have learned and use it to thoughtfully and thoroughly craft policy to protect all Michigan residents.

When I looked at this crisis as a whole, starting the day the Emergency Manager ordered the use of the Flint River, and everything that happened right up to today, I have made the most upsetting realization of my political career. The people of Flint were ignored by their elected leaders, the state and the federal agencies that were supposed to protect them. This crisis had to become an issue of national importance, covered by hundreds of media outlets, before our government would take any action to save Flint. The media has now left Flint and moved on to another story and Mr. Speaker, it appears that this very body has moved on as well. However, this problem has not been resolved for Flint, and we still have done nothing to protect the rest of the state. If it takes another life to be lost for this body to act, we should all feel ashamed. No matter what any of you have accomplished in your time here, no matter any of the praise you have garnered, we all will have failed in our responsibilities as public servants.

During my time in the legislature I have always tried to maintain a positive tone when I offer remarks. This means no matter how upset I am, I always try to find something good to praise even when the situation has grown dark. This water crisis has tested relationships back home and right here in this building. In 2015, Sheldon Neeley became a member of this body. Early on, our relationship was broken and I even asked the speaker to change my seat location so I wouldn’t have to sit next to him. I would have never thought we would be able to repair our relationship, but I was wrong. Sheldon Neeley is a fighter, he fights for his constituents, he fights for his family and friends, and sometime I think he fights simply to be in a fight. Sheldon and I were forced into working together to fight for the people of Flint. Mr. Speaker, something good did come from the water crisis, and that is that I now call Sheldon Neeley my brother. I am thankful to have had such a strong partner these past 4 years, and one that is quick on the draw when it comes time to fire words. Sheldon says everything I want to say, but he says it better and he can make it sting. Sheldon Neeley cares deeply about the citizens of Flint and having him by my side during these trying times has been both a blessing and an honor. Sheldon, I am glad to call you my friend and I don’t want that to change after my service here ends.

I want to take a moment to thank everyone who came to Flint to help deliver water and filters to residents, take part in a tour, or help craft legislation and messaging in response to the crisis. It meant a lot to me to see so many of our caucus members take time out of their days to go door to door when it was so cold out. Having you in our community showed Flint residents that there are people who care about them in our government, and I think it showed all of you how dire the situation really was. I also want to thank our policy and communications teams for all their hard work on the crisis. Our policy team led by Coffiann Hawthorne spent countless hours drafting legislation that would make sure something like this would never happen in our state again. Even though almost none of it got passed, I still feel we have written legal fixes that will someday be law in this state. I also want to thank our communications team and specifically Courtney Overbey. Sheldon and I were getting dozens of interview requests every day. Courtney managed all of that for us, and she gave me a strong voice and helped me deliver my message across the nation and world.

To my friend Tim Greimel, you are a great leader and I will never forget the quick action you took when we were debating the Detroit bankruptcy legislation. Somehow during the negotiations leading up to the Detroit bankruptcy, a couple of lawsuits were included in a list of suits that would be required to be dismissed without prejudice if the legislation pending before us was to pass. Two of the lawsuits were made by employees of Flint and Pontiac and had nothing to do with Detroit. When I first brought this to the attention of the bill sponsors, I was told that I was wrong and nobody outside of Detroit would be harmed by these bills. I kept pushing and eventually had the plaintiff’s attorneys fax my office the files that proved the opposite of what my colleagues were saying. Leader Greimel took swift action. At the time, we had a small minority in the House and would not be able to make the needed changes through parliamentary procedures. Leader Greimel contacted the judge overseeing the bankruptcy and, after only an hour of negotiation, was able to get those two lawsuits removed from the agreement. To say the very least, I was impressed. Tim Greimel, you are a great leader and a great friend.

I want to thank Michelle Lange in Governor Snyder’s office as well. She has always taken every complaint or angry-worded inquiry I’ve had and quickly delivered an answer to me no matter how hectic and busy her schedule was. Michelle, I know you probably wanted to run every time you saw Sheldon or I walking your way, but instead you stepped up and were a model employee for the Governor. You have provided a great service to this chamber, to the City of Flint and to this state. For that, I thank you.

The Flint water crisis has tested the patience and leadership of all those involved and the ongoing court proceedings and efforts to bring aid to Flint continue to test each of us today. Many negative comments have been thrown around during the past few years and there has been a level of anger amongst Flint residents that has barely begun to settle. I know my next statement will not be popular back home, but I want to set the record straight while I have the floor. What happened in Flint was unfortunate and continues to cause struggles for our constituents. Some got sick, some even lost their life, but all of them have been burdened by the actions of our government. That being said, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Governor Snyder never intended to bring harm to a single person in Flint or our state. I can tell that he is ashamed of what happened and he is genuine when he apologizes about the situation. Furthermore, I will attest to Governor Snyder’s drive and desire to help Flint recover from this crisis. He is also personally involved helping Flint create and fund the Flint Promise, that will ensure that every graduate from Flint Schools will receive free tuition at Michigan universities and he actively tries to attract large economic development projects to the area. All of us here want what’s best for everyone we serve and I know that none of us would wish such horrible conditions on anyone, as we have seen in Flint. Governor Snyder is a decent human being and I will continue to work with him to improve the lives of our constituent’s long after both of our terms have expired.

I decided to include one more thought in my farewell speech after listening to the remarks giving by Representative Pagel. During some of the most challenging times of our careers here in the legislature, you may have noticed that moderates from both parties could sometimes be found huddled together in one area of the chamber or another. We were not discussing strategy, nor were we plotting against our respected caucuses. Moderates are often under such extreme pressure from our caucuses that it brought us each a bit of comfort to sit and chat with those on the other side of the aisle who have faced similar situations during their careers. Rep. Pagel, I appreciated those chats where we would talk about how things were going back home or how the farm was holding up. I wish we both had more time to serve together and that we would have been able to partner on good bi-partisan legislation, drafted by moderates from both parties. However, it appears that there isn’t much room for moderates in either party, even though it seems that having a few more of us in office might make it easier to accomplish more for those we serve. To all my fellow moderates in both caucuses, there will come a day when our state needs us solve the problems that extremists can’t. When that day comes, I hope to serve alongside all of you again in whichever chamber or capacity that may be.

Mr. Speaker, I yield the balance of my time to the Honorable Fred Durhal III.”

Rep. VanderWall:

“Colleagues,

I want to take a few minutes and thank all of you for what you do on behalf of the state of Michigan. Over the past two years, we have had some normal days and a few very long nights. However, we have worked very hard together to make our state better and I am proud of everything we have been able to accomplish. I truly believe that our efforts have made this great state a better place to live and work. For that, I thank you all for your service and dedication.

I look forward to the opportunity to continue to work with you on the many issues facing our state. I want to thank the citizens of the 101st District for their confidence in me to represent their interests in this great institution. As I get ready to move down the hall to the Senate, I must also say thank you to the citizens of the 35th District as well. It is truly humbling to be able to serve you.

I want to say thank you to Speaker Leonard for his guidance and leadership. I would also like to thank Speaker Pro Tem Chatfield for all of his help. And let us not forget his dad Rusty for his prayers on our behalf. Thank you to Sergeant Dickson and the men and women who serve under him for always having our backs. Thank you to our clerks and their staff, your institutional knowledge is second to none and is truly invaluable.

I would also like to thank the chairs of the committees I have been blessed to serve on - Rep. Theis, Rep. Hughes, Rep. Farrington, and Rep. Howell - for everything they have done to push Michigan forward with great legislation. It has truly been an honor to serve with you and I look forward to continuing to work with you moving forward.

I would like to say thank you to my seat mates for making long days shorter. I would like to shout out in particular Rep. Kahle for giving the three bald guys in the front row the chance to make the media news reel.

Finally, I want to say thank you to my wife Diane for her help, support, and being my best friend. I’d also like to thank my children – Nick, Holly, Alyssa, and Hunter – as well as my parents and in-laws for all of your hard work, support, and encouragement.

Colleagues, as I conclude, I challenge us to move continue moving the needle forward for Michigan. Thank you again for your service to your districts and our state. May God bless each and every one of you and your families. Thank you.”

The Ombudsman for the work you do with a special recognition to Keith Barber of Corrections, a native of Macomb County. What a difficult job but what great work you do. I appreciate the help.

All the legislative liaisons for always answering our calls and finding out the answers to our questions. You have to answer the same questions with every batch of new legislators and you do it with class and grace.

The Lansing press corps. I don’t know what this country would do without a free press. I know Lansing isn’t the sexiest gig in journalism but it’s incredibly important. Never stop holding the people up here accountable. BTW, my week doesn’t officially start until I listen to the MIRS Monday podcast. And I’m not just saying that because I’m trying to get MIRS ‘Quote of the Day’. Did I mention I’ve never gotten a MIRS quote of the Day? Did I mention Jeremy Moss was a journalism major? And an aside to Tim Skubick, Tim I promise to keep Watching ‘Off the Record’ so your viewership numbers stay in the triple digits, at least as long as your 99 relatives live up to their end of the bargain.

To the ‘Magnificent Seven’ The seven marginals, Winnie Brinks, Tom Cochran, Scott Dianda, Gretchen Driskell, Theresa Abed and Coleen Lamonte. (Congratulate Winnie on winning her election, tell Scott he has a shiny suit and a pinky ring waiting for as an official Macomber. Thank Tom Cochran for his service as fire chief but also as union president during tough times.)

Doctor’s Bizon and Canfield and Chris Afendoulis – Thank you for reminding me what it means to be a gentleman and working with me when you didn’t have to.

Joelle Demand – I have a tie on! Thank you for keeping the frogs in the wheelbarrow.

Yousef Rabhi – Thank you for your ever changing facial hair. It’s like working with someone new every week. When your political career is over I’ll write you that one man play for you to star in, ‘The Life and Times of Frank Zappa’. Best of luck as minority floor leader next year.

Tim Greimel and Sam Singh – Sorry I was a pain in your whatever. Pick a part of your anatomy hurt the most. I’ll let you decide.

Chris Grieg – I told you should be leader and now you will be. As usual, I got a little ahead of myself but now your time has come.

My Macomb colleagues. Do well for our county I’m rooting for you. You have 10 votes, don’t be afraid to use them. And one last thing….you have 10 votes!

Jeff Yaroch – You’re a good man and a good friend. Don’t let this place change you, you change this place.

To all of seatmates, Jon Switalski, Phil Cavanaugh, Jim Ananich, Pat Green. Jon was my mentor, Phil taught me about Transcendental Meditation, Ananich was a close second best seatmate because he was never there but Pat you’re the best by far. Mostly because you’re still here and I have to sit next to you when I’m done speaking but also because you saved me a lot of money on my auto insurance.

To Doug Simon and Tim Bowlin before him and the entire staff at the HOB thank you. Doug Simon, you’re a fine beach volleyball player for a man your age. Try not to hurt something. Thanks to every worker at the Capitol and for this state that makes our government run, thank you.

There are so many others to thank and I will do so personally, in notes and phone calls but I want to share just one thought before I go.

Farewell

We all knew this day was coming.

When someone retires from the fire department we have a mustering out ceremony. Everyone gathers, the chief says a few kind words. For some these are the only kind words they’ve ever heard from any chief and then the retiree says their thank you’s and shares some thoughts. Invariably, the retiree will recite a quote to sum up their feelings and thoughts. I’ve heard quotes ranging from the likes of St. Thomas Aquinas to Porky Pig.

As I searched for my thoughts I kept coming back to an old high school teacher. Frankly I went to high school so long ago they are all literally old high school teachers. Our gym teacher, Jim Myers, who was also our football and wrestling coach, used to tell us two things. One was ‘Whether you win or lose do it with class’. In our business this isn’t always easy to do. Politics isn’t a sport, it’s personal. We are all good people here. People who care deeply about our communities, our state and our country. But during an election we can become the world’s worst human being. Crooked, lazy, incompetent, amoral, immoral. Whether it’s from someone in our own party during a primary or someone from the opposing party during the general, we, as politicians take our lumps and that’s not always an easy thing to do. It’s easy to be resentful and bitter. Trust me, no one gets that more than I do.

Oh, by the way, the other thing Coach Myers used to tell us was ‘Win if you can. Lose if you must but always cheat’. I didn’t think that was a very good theme for this occasion.

But here’s the thing. Whether we are here or not there is so many people that need help. So much work to be done. A senior with food insecurity, a veteran struggling with mental health issues and homelessness, a child who finds themselves in the most difficult of circumstances through no fault of their own. So many to serve. So much work to be done.

With the passing of President Bush we heard a lot about his belief in selflessness and service. Service to his country and service to his fellow man. President Bush, a one term President had reason to be bitter but instead focused on service. One of the eulogy’s given at his funeral was from former Senator Alan Simpson who said ‘Hatred erodes the container it’s carried in’. You can easily replace the word hatred for bitterness. I suggest if you still feel the sting of leaving here before you are ready to go or maybe to my friends and colleagues on the Democratic side of the aisle who don’t feel like you’ve been treated fairly by the majority in your time here, watch the video of that eulogy and then think about your time here and what you’ve been able to do while you held the title ‘State Representative’. You have served so many and have done so much work.

We live in arguably the greatest country in the world. Certainly the strongest democracy ever created. And yes, we have a lot of problems but we always have, since day one but it’s still the place that people from all over the world want to come to live to have the opportunity to live the American dream. Think about it, there is no Russian dream or Chinese dream but there is only the American dream and how lucky are we to not only have the opportunity to realize that dream but to be one of the small handful of people that had the opportunity to hold the title of ‘State Representative’ and do the work on the issues that help to keep the American Dream alive.

I leave these chambers honored and humbled to have been allowed to serve in this capacity and to have done the work on behalf of my constituents and the people of this great state.

In closing I leave you with these words paraphrased the before mentioned comments.

Win if you can. Lose if you must but always serve.

And for anyone that thinks I’m done serving in the state legislature, well, this ain’t all folks!

Thank you.”

______

Rep. Geiss, having reserved the right to explain her nay vote, made the following statement:

“Mr. Speaker and members of the House:

Today I voted no on concurrence of HB 4205, which would prohibit state agencies from promulgating rules that are more stringent than the federal standard or than is federally mandated. At a time when we are grappling with our growing PFAS environmental and public health crisis and where federal environmental guidelines are being weakened, Michigan cannot afford to have anything but higher standards than what is federally mandated. Doing so will certainly make us ‘Impure Michigan’ instead of Pure Michigan creating unintended economic and tourism consequences in addition to the aforementioned environmental and public health consequences. Furthermore, this bill ties the hands of future administrations to enact policies that are best for Michigan.”
