House Resolution No. 132.

A resolution to declare June 2017 as Elder Abuse Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, On June 15, 2006, World Elder Abuse Awareness Day was launched by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health Organization at the United Nations; and

Whereas, The Federal Government estimates show that more than 1 in 10 persons over age 60, or 6,000,000 individuals, are victims of elder abuse each year; and

Whereas, The vast majority of the abuse, neglect, and exploitation of older adults in the United States goes unidentified, as only 1 in 44 cases of financial abuse of older adults is reported; and

Whereas, Elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation have no boundaries and cross all racial, social, class, gender, and geographic lines; and

Whereas, Older adults who are abused are 3 times more likely to die earlier than older adults of the same age who are not abused; and

Whereas, Public awareness has the potential to increase the identification and reporting of elder abuse by the public, professionals, and victims, and can act as a catalyst to promote issue-based education and long-term prevention; and

Whereas, Private individuals and public agencies must work together on the federal, state, and local levels to combat increasing occurrences of abuse, neglect, and exploitation crime and violence against vulnerable older adults and vulnerable adults, particularly in light of limited resources for vital protective services; and

Whereas, 2017 is the 12th anniversary of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare June 2017 as Elder Abuse Awareness Day in Michigan. The House of Representatives recognizes judges, lawyers, adult protective services professionals, law enforcement officers, long-term care ombudsmen, social workers, health care providers, professional guardians, advocates for victims, and other professionals and agencies for the efforts to advance awareness of elder abuse. We encourage members of the public and professionals who work with older adults to act as catalysts to promote awareness and long-term prevention of elder abuse by reaching out to local adult protective services agencies, long-term care ombudsman programs, and the National Center on Elder Abuse, and by learning to recognize, detect, report, and respond to elder abuse; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution shall be transmitted to the members of the Michigan congressional delegation and the Governor of the State of Michigan.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

Rep. Lucido moved to substitute (H-1) the resolution as follows:

House Resolution No. 133.

A resolution to declare June 2017 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Michigan and our nation strive to promote the principles of equality and justice, and the inalienable rights of all people to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; and

Whereas, Michigan is a state that is rich in diversity and community and believes in a society that values the freedom, worth, and dignity of each human being; and

Whereas, The state of Michigan is fortunate to be home to at least 300,000 lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender residents; and

Whereas, Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people have made important and lasting contributions to our great state and nation in every field of endeavor. These sectors include but are not limited to business, medicine, law, humanities, science, literature, politics, education, sports, arts, and culture, that enrich our life; and

Whereas, To build a stronger and better state and nation, we must continue to help advance the cause of equality for all people and eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists; and

Whereas, We must teach our children to respect one another, to appreciate our differences, and to recognize the common good in all of us in order to achieve a just and fair society; and

Whereas, Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan. The Stonewall riots were a tipping point for the gay liberation movement in the United States; and

Whereas, Communities throughout Michigan and our nation will celebrate Pride Month by hosting events to celebrate the LGBT community throughout the month of June; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare June 2017 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month in the state of Michigan. We urge all residents to join in celebrating the culture, accomplishments, and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, and encourage the people of Michigan to work to help advance the cause of equality for all.

Reps. Elder, Jones, Sabo, Phelps, Sneller, Ellison, Faris, Love, Howell, Hammoud, Chirkun, Cochran, Elder, Greig, Howrylak, Sowerby and Yanez offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 134.

A resolution to memorialize the President and Congress of the United States to maintain the U.S. Surface Transportation Board’s statutory authority to encourage more competition in the rail sector and to provide a reasonable and cost-effective method that rail shippers can use to challenge unreasonable rail rates.

Whereas, Today’s rail industry is exempt from U.S. antitrust laws and is characterized by a lack of competition. Many agricultural shippers are served by only one railroad and have no cost-effective transportation alternatives to ship produce to customers. Rail shipping rates have risen rapidly and repeatedly due to this railroad monopoly; and

Whereas, Access to efficient and cost-effective rail transportation is essential to not only Michigan agriculture but to the entire nation. Michigan agriculture relies on freight rail service to move products to markets throughout the nation and around the world. Increased rates are largely passed back to farmers which further depress cash prices to the detriment of Michigan farmers; and

Whereas, The independent U.S. Surface Transportation Board (STB) is the sole federal agency that has any economic regulatory oversight of the rail industry. The statutory mandate for the STB to fully review and approve major, market-shifting moves by rail companies is important to maintain a degree of fairness in the freight rail marketplace. With rising rates, failing reliability, and aging infrastructure, large rail companies must be subject to effective regulation. Competitive rail service with balanced STB oversight is a win for Michigan agriculture and all Americans; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we memorialize the President and Congress of the United States to maintain the U.S. Surface Transportation Board’s statutory authority to encourage more competition in the rail sector and to provide a reasonable and cost-effective method that rail shippers can use to challenge unreasonable rail rates; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States, 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 Transportation and Infrastructure.

Reps. Maturen, Canfield, Chirkun, Clemente, Cochran, Crawford, Elder, Ellison, Faris, Geiss, Greig, Howrylak, Kesto, Sabo, Sneller and Yanez offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 135.

A resolution to declare July 2-8, 2017, as Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Michigan and its economy are defined by the Great Lakes and depend on its great abundance of fresh water for manufacturing, tourism, fishing, public water supplies, agriculture, and numerous other uses; and

Whereas, Preventing the introduction of aquatic invasive species ultimately benefits Michigan. Stopping the introduction of these species would eliminate the need for the state of Michigan, business, industry, and citizens from employing costly methods to control and manage them; and

Whereas, Michigan has taken the lead in protecting the Great Lakes from aquatic invasive species from a number of pathways including ballast water, canals and waterways, organisms in trade, and recreational activities; and

Whereas, Over 180 nonindigenous aquatic species are established in the Great Lakes basin, many of which are displacing native species, disrupting habitats, and degrading natural, managed, and agricultural landscapes, resulting in millions of dollars for control efforts each year; and

Whereas, Michigan has over 900,000 registered boaters and many other recreational, commercial, and industrial users of over 11,000 inland lakes and over 36,000 miles of rivers and streams in the state, many of which are impacted by aquatic invasive species; and

Whereas, Aquatic invasive species awareness is an important first step toward behavior change, which prevents the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species; and

Whereas, Spring marks the beginning of water-related recreational activities in Michigan; and

Whereas, Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness Week is an opportunity for government to join forces with business, industry, environmental groups, community organizations, and citizens to take action against the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare July 2-8, 2017, as Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness Week in the state of Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That all citizens must increase their understanding and awareness of aquatic invasive species and their environmental and economic impacts and take preventative measures to stop the spread and introduction of aquatic invasive species; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Michigan Department of Transportation, Great Lakes Fishery Commission, Council of Great Lakes Governors, Michigan Congressional Delegation, and Great Lakes Commission.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Marino, Hornberger, Farrington, Yaroch, Sowerby, Lucido, Chirkun, Yanez, Hertel and Green offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 136.

A resolution to commemorate the centennial of Selfridge Air National Guard Base.

Whereas, Selfridge Air National Guard Base (ANGB) was formally established on July 1, 1917, in Harrison Township, Michigan as one of the first military airfields in the nation under continuous service; and

Whereas, The ANGB was named after the first aerial military casualty, Army Lt. Thomas Selfridge, while on a demonstration flight with Orville Wright in 1908; and

Whereas, The former president of Packard Motor Company, Henry B. Joy, leased his rural airfield in 1917 to the military to train pilots and related personnel. This rural airfield would eventually become Selfridge ANGB; and

Whereas, Selfridge ANGB was previously home to the oldest air combat group in the nation, the 1st Pursuit Group, and stationed famous pilots such as Charles Lindbergh; and

Whereas, During WWII maintenance personnel of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, an all-African American unit, trained at the base and helped lead the way toward ending racial segregation in the military; and

Whereas, Following the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, the 127th Wing began flying combat air patrol missions over the great lakes region within hours of the attack; and

Whereas, Selfridge ANGB is one of the largest and most complex Air National Guard operated bases in the nation, and it is a joint-military base, home to the Army, Navy, Airforce, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard as well as U.S. Homeland Security; and

Whereas, Garrisoned at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, the 127th Wing comprises approximately 1,700 citizen-airmen and provides highly-trained personnel and aerial support to our state and the nation; and

Whereas, The 127th Wing operates KC-135T Stratotankers, providing global aerial refueling capability in support of Air Mobility Command, and the A-10C Thunderbolt II, flying the close air support mission in support of Air Combat Command; and

Whereas, The 127th Wing was the 2016 recipient of the Carl A. Spaatz Award, given to the nation’s top National Guard Unit, in addition to receiving the Meritorious Unit Award for performance of both combat operations and support of those operations; and

Whereas, The Wing also supports the Air Force Special Operations Command with its 107th Weather Flight; and

Whereas, Selfridge ANGB is a fulcrum for the local and state economy and our national defense with an annual economic impact of over $700 million while serving as a critical component of disaster response, homeland security, and global combat operations; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body commemorate the centennial of Selfridge Air National Guard Base; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Adj. General of the Michigan National Guard, the Governor of the state of Michigan, members of the Michigan congressional delegation, the Secretary of the Air Force, and the Secretary of Defense.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Yanez, Sabo, Cochran, Green, Camilleri, Lucido, Hertel, Elder, Chang, Sowerby, Chirkun, Ellison, Greig, Pagan and Sneller offered the following concurrent resolution:

House Concurrent Resolution No. 10.

A concurrent resolution to urge the President of the United States to immediately initiate renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, including redressing ongoing trade deficits and enforcing labor and environmental standards, and consider withdrawing the United States from the agreement if renegotiations are not satisfactorily completed within one year.

Whereas, It was predicted that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) would create a trade surplus for the United States of between $9 billion to $12 billion and create 170,000 jobs per year in its first five years, but instead, NAFTA has resulted in more than two decades of growing trade deficits with Mexico and Canada and massive manufacturing job losses. According to the Economic Policy Institute, by 2013, the NAFTA trade deficit had already equated to an estimated net loss of roughly 850,000 United States jobs, and in 2016, the United States’ trade deficit with other NAFTA countries was $172,995,603; and

Whereas, The United States’ economy is still struggling to recover from the Great Recession. Millions of America’s workers are unemployed or underemployed. Wages and consumer demand remain suppressed, and income inequality is at historic highs; and

Whereas, Between 2000 and 2014, American manufacturing employment dropped by 4 million jobs. The growing trade deficit, exacerbated by trade agreements like NAFTA, have displaced hundreds of thousands of jobs, including 43,600 jobs in Michigan; and

Whereas, Of the 20 hardest-hit congressional districts, half of the top 20 districts are in Michigan. Since Congress approved the Permanent Normal Trade Relations for China, the growth in the United States’ trade deficit with China has resulted in the net loss of more than 3.2 million jobs, including 80,100 jobs in Michigan, and 7,500 in the 11th Congressional District, specifically; and

Whereas, More than 865,000 workers have been certified by the United States government through the Trade Adjustment Assistance Program as having lost their jobs to offshoring and trade with other NAFTA countries; and

Whereas, The nearly 65 percent of American workers who do not have college degrees have been hardest hit by NAFTA job losses and wage cuts, negatively impacting entire communities; and

Whereas, According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, two out of every five displaced manufacturing workers who were rehired in 2016 experienced a wage reduction, and one out of every four displaced manufacturing workers took a pay cut of greater than 20 percent, meaning the average manufacturing worker earning more than $38,000 per year suffered an annual wage loss of at least $7,600; and

Whereas, As manufacturing workers have lost their jobs to NAFTA, they have joined the glut of United States workers seeking service sector jobs, so that wages in these sectors have also been pushed downwards and income inequality has been exacerbated; and

Whereas, NAFTA has benefited large agribusiness corporations over family farmers in all three nations, failing to address the very real problems of price volatility for producers and consumers alike, while damaging livelihoods in rural communities at home and abroad; and

Whereas, By failing to condition trade benefits on countries enforcing strong labor and environmental standards, NAFTA incentivized corporations’ offshoring of jobs and exploiting of workers across North America in a race to the bottom, and firms that remained in the United States faced unfair competition from imports subsidized through social dumping; and

Whereas, NAFTA’s labor and environmental terms were included in unenforceable side agreements. More recent agreements’ labor and environmental terms included in core texts have also failed to change actual practice because they have not been sufficiently enforced; and

Whereas, NAFTA was the first United States trade agreement to include special privileges for investors and the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) process that make it less risky for employers to relocate jobs offshore, while simultaneously threatening democratic policymaking at home and abroad; and

Whereas, Corporations have used NAFTA’s ISDS process to challenge bans on toxic chemicals, the decisions of environmental review panels, court rulings that support access to affordable medicines, and protections for the climate. Corporations have extracted more than $370 million from governments in NAFTA ISDS cases, while pending NAFTA claims total more than $50 million; and

Whereas, NAFTA was negotiated in an opaque process in which corporations were granted undue influence while the United States public was prevented from providing input; and

Whereas, President Donald Trump campaigned on the promise of initiating negotiations for a NAFTA replacement agreement within the first 100 days of taking office, and he pledged to withdraw the United States from NAFTA if he could not make it “much better’’ for working people; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That we urge the President of the United States to initiate renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement; and be it further

Resolved, That we urge that the North American Free Trade Agreement be replaced with a new trade agreement that:

1. Includes strong, binding, and enforceable labor and environmental standards in the agreement’s core text with requirements that are enforced;

2. Creates a fair playing field by requiring that the agreement will take effect only upon each participating country adopting, maintaining, implementing, and enforcing domestic laws that provide the labor rights and protections that are included in the International Labor Organization’s Core Conventions and policies that fulfill the Paris climate agreement and other core multilateral environmental agreements;

3. Ensures these commitments are enforceable through an independent dispute settlement process and subject to the same sanctions used to enforce the commercial provisions of NAFTA;

4. Ensures market access is conditioned on confirmation that labor and environmental commitments are enforced, which means there is sustained evidence that conditions on the ground have improved and an assurance trade benefits will be withdrawn if conditions on the ground deteriorate; and

5. Includes provisions to tax imported products that are made under highly climate-polluting conditions; and be it further

Resolved, That we believe that a new trade agreement should:

1. Guard against employer-dominated unions by requiring each participating country have laws in place that require:

a. Unions to provide members with timely access to union bylaws and to collective bargaining agreements and tentative collective bargaining agreements prior to ratification votes;

b. Collective bargaining agreements to be ratified by a free and secret ballot vote of the workers covered under the collective bargaining agreement; and

c. Management to permit union representation in investigatory interviews;

2. Not include protections for foreign investors, including an Investor-State Dispute Settlement process, to avoid exposure of the United States government and taxpayers to financial losses, threats to United States’ and other parties’ laws and sovereignty, the undermining of environmental and health protections in extra-judicial tribunals, or new incentives to offshore jobs;

3. Not include provisions that undermine Buy America, Buy Local, or any other domestic procurement preferences or labor, environmental, or other standards for procurement contracts;

4. Require all imported products and services and foreign service sector companies operating in the United States to comply with United States’ environmental, land use, safety, privacy, transparency, professional qualification, and consumer access laws;

5. Not include any provisions similar to NAFTA’s “Chapter Nineteen: Review and Dispute Settlement in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Matters’’ or any extra-judicial review tribunal empowered to invalidate the decisions of the United States government or judicial courts relating to anti-dumping, subsidies, or countervailing duties;

6. Include binding rules that will prevent foreign governments from using currency manipulation to undercut United States exports or subsidize their exports, meaning strong, binding, and enforceable disciplines against currency manipulation that trigger automatic corrective action against currency manipulators rather than simply triggering reports or dialogue;

7. Strengthen NAFTA’s “rules of origin’’ by:

a. Raising the auto rule of origin to require that 90 percent of a product’s value is legitimately sourced from a country that is party to the trade agreement for the product to qualify for benefits under the agreement; and

b. Eliminating transshipment and other loopholes;

8. Include rules that require imported food and products to meet United States’ standards for safety, inspection, and labeling requirements, including country-of-origin labeling requirements;

9. Not include intellectual property provisions or other provisions that drive up the cost of medicines and provisions that would go beyond the existing World Trade Organization’s Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights, which is already in effect in all NAFTA member countries;

10. .Include a broad carve-out to safeguard nondiscriminatory domestic public interest policies from attack under any of the agreement’s rules;

11. Not require access to United States’ roads for commercial vehicles domiciled in other countries and require all foreign service providers’ vehicles and drivers entering the United States to meet all highway safety and environmental standards before being granted access to and use of distribution and transportation systems; and

12. .Safeguard each country’s energy independence and autonomy over environmental policy by excluding terms such as those contained in NAFTA’s energy chapter, which require countries to maintain proportionate shares of energy exports even at times of domestic shortages or planned production reductions while enabling challenges to widely used climate policies; and be it further

Resolved, That we call on the President to initiate renegotiation of NAFTA not later than August 18, 2017; and be it further

Resolved, That we urge that renegotiations for the new trade agreement take place in a transparent, participatory, and democratic manner, ensuring adequate congressional and stakeholder input throughout the process; and be it further

Resolved, That we believe that the President should ensure each and every one of the provisions described in these resolved clauses is included in the core text of such a new trade agreement with Canada and Mexico that is to replace NAFTA before finalizing the agreement; and be it further

Resolved, That, if each and every one of the provisions described in these resolving clauses is not included in the core text of a new trade agreement within one year of the beginning of renegotiations, we call on the President to consider withdrawing the United States from NAFTA as provided for in Article 2205; and be it further

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

The concurrent resolution was referred to the Committee on Commerce and Trade.

Reps. Yaroch, Brann, Love, Chirkun, Elder and Yanez offered the following concurrent resolution:

House Concurrent Resolution No. 11.

A concurrent resolution to urge the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and federal prosecutors to either enforce the federal statute criminalizing marijuana or the U.S. Congress to amend the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 to defer to the states the right to regulate marijuana within its borders under state law.

Whereas, Despite federal law criminalizing marijuana, Michigan citizens voted to enact marijuana laws that reflect the will of the people. Currently, medical marijuana is regulated under state law in half of the states, including Michigan, and the District of Columbia. The states of Washington, Colorado, Oregon, and Alaska are regulating marijuana for recreational use; and

Whereas, The federal government’s lack of clarity and inconsistency have created confusion and uncertainty in the enforcement of its marijuana rules, which in turn affects law enforcement, as well as banking, taxation, and zoning laws; now, therefore, be it

Resolved By the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That we urge the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and federal prosecutors to either enforce the federal statute criminalizing marijuana or the U.S. Congress to amend the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 to defer to the states the right to regulate marijuana under state law; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Attorney General of the United States, the Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration, 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 concurrent resolution was referred to the Committee on Law and Justice.

Explanation of “No” Votes

Rep. Chirkun, having reserved the right to explain his protest against the passage of House Bill No. 4647, made the following statement:

“Mr. Speaker and members of the House:

I voted no on House Bill 4647 because I felt it is another example of the continued assault on the teaching profession in Michigan. Our teachers and taxpayers deserve better. The current hybrid plan was fully funded and what this bill has done is increased costs to our local schools, teachers and taxpayers. This hurried plan claims to address the unfunded liabilities within the MSPERS system. After only a few hours of testimony, House Bill 4647 was amended, passed out of committee and then brought up to the House floor for a final vote without a complete debate and discussion, in less than a day. What House Bill 4637 does is increase the costs to the state and increases the risk to the system while doing nothing to fundamentally address the debt that exists within the teacher’s retirement system. Even more fundamentally, the change will drive away people from becoming educators. In addition, this bill will also result in less dollars going into our already underfunded classrooms, while kicking the can down the road so that future generations of the Michigan Legislature can revisit this later.”

Announcements by the Clerk

June 9, 2017

Gary L. Randall

Clerk of the House

The Clerk received the following dissent on House Bill No. 4647, from Rep. Ellison:

I dissent to the failure of the House to recognize a record roll call vote when 1/5 of the members properly demanded it. I, along with more than 22 of my colleagues, asked for a record roll call. The Michigan Constitution requires the body to take this recorded vote and I dissent that it was not recognized.

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:

My no vote on Senate Bill 401 reflects the concerns I have with the legislation in its current form. While I appreciate that we need to take action to address the unfunded liability in the current teacher’s retirement system, I cannot support legislation that blocks a referendum measure. The bill includes a $5 million dollar appropriation, which blocks our citizens from exercising their constitutional right to bring forth a referendum. The right of the people to challenge the decisions of our elected officials is a fundamental block to our democracy. In order to gain my support, I would like to have seen more deliberations on the issues in the bill.”

Rep. Chirkun, 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 voted no on Senate Bill 401 because I felt it is another example of the continued assault on the teaching profession in Michigan. Our teachers and taxpayers deserve better. The current hybrid plan was fully funded and what this bill has done is increased costs to our local schools, teachers and taxpayers. This hurried plan claims to address the unfunded liabilities within the MSPERS system. After only a few hours of testimony, Senate Bill 401 was amended, passed out of committee and then brought up to the House floor for a final vote without a complete debate and discussion, in less than a day. What Senate Bill 401 does is increase the costs to the state and increases the risk to the system while doing nothing to fundamentally address the debt that exists within the teacher’s retirement system. Even more fundamentally, the change will drive away people from becoming educators. In addition, this bill will also result in less dollars going into our already underfunded classrooms, while kicking the can down the road so that future generations of the Michigan Legislature can revisit this later.”

The department shall notify the department of technology, management, and budget of the evaluation process used to determine if an RFI or RFQ was not necessary prior to issuing the RFP.

Sec. 940. (1) Any lease, rental, contract, or other legal agreement that includes a provision allowing a private person or entity to use state-owned facilities or other property to conduct a for-profit business enterprise shall require the lessee to pay fair market value for the use of the state-owned property.

(2) The lease, rental, contract, or other legal agreement shall also require the party using the property to make a payment in lieu of taxes to the local jurisdictions that would otherwise receive property tax revenue, as if the property were not owned by the state.

These access rights for both offices shall be the same for the contracted facility as for a general state-operated correctional facility.

Sec. 943.

(1) Subject to section 242 of the management and budget act, 1984 PA 431, MCL 18.1242, and upon the approval of the state building authority, the department of treasury may expend from the general fund of the state during the fiscal year an amount to meet the cash flow requirements of those state building authority projects solely for lease to a state agency identified in both part 1 and this section, and for which state building authority bonds or notes have not been issued, and for the sole acquisition by the state building authority of equipment and furnishings for lease to a state agency as permitted by 1964 PA 183, MCL 830.411 to 830.425, for which the issuance of bonds or notes is authorized by a legislative appropriation act that is effective for the immediately preceding fiscal year. Any general fund advances for which state building authority bonds have not been issued shall bear an interest cost to the state building authority at a rate not to exceed that earned by the state treasurer’s common cash fund during the period in which the advances are outstanding and are repaid to the general fund of the state.

(2) Upon sale of bonds or notes for the projects identified in part 1 or for equipment as authorized by a legislative appropriation act and in this section, the state building authority shall credit the general fund of the state an amount equal to that expended from the general fund plus interest, if any, as defined in this section.

(3) For state building authority projects for which bonds or notes have been issued and upon the request of the state building authority, the state treasurer shall make advances without interest from the general fund as necessary to meet cash flow requirements for the projects, which advances shall be reimbursed by the state building authority when the investments earmarked for the financing of the projects mature.

(4) In the event that a project identified in part 1 is terminated after final design is complete, advances made on behalf of the state building authority for the costs of final design shall be repaid to the general fund in a manner recommended by the director.

Sec. 1102. (1) State building authority funding to finance construction or renovation of a facility that collects revenue in excess of money required for the operation of that facility shall not be released to a university or community college unless the institution agrees to reimburse that excess revenue to the state building authority. The excess revenue shall be credited to the general fund to offset rent obligations associated with the retirement of bonds issued for that facility. The auditor general shall annually identify and present an audit of those facilities that are subject to this section. Costs associated with the administration of the audit shall be charged against money recovered pursuant to this section.

(2) As used in this section, “revenue” includes state appropriations, facility opening money, other state aid, indirect cost reimbursement, and other revenue generated by the activities of the facility.

Sec. 1103. The state building authority shall provide to the JCOS and senate and house fiscal agencies a report relative to the status of construction projects associated with state building authority bonds as of September 30 of each year, on or before October 15, or not more than 30 days after a refinancing or restructuring bond issue is sold. The report shall include, but is not limited to, the following:

(a) A list of all completed construction projects for which state building authority bonds have been sold, and which bonds are currently active.

(b) A list of all projects under construction for which sale of state building authority bonds is pending.

(c) A list of all projects authorized for construction or identified in an appropriations act for which approval of schematic/preliminary plans or total authorized cost is pending that have state building authority bonds identified as a source of financing.
