Oath of Office

Senators Ananich and Meekhof asked and were granted unanimous consent to make statements and moved that the statements be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Ananich’s statement is as follows:

It is truly an honor and a great pleasure to say a few words about our newest caucus member and this body’s newest member. I would like to note that the Senate Democrats are the only caucus of all four caucuses to actually go up in this election, so I guess we’ve got that going for us.

In the little time that I’ve gotten to know Mr. Conyers, I found him to be a man of the utmost integrity, honesty, and a superb intellect. I’m sure as we all get to know him better and as many of you get to know him for the first time, you will find the same. He came here to get things done, and I think you’ll find that he will be a member that works across the aisle and that is an advocate for his community every single day he gets here.

Another benefit is that Senator Knezek is no longer the youngest member of this body. We’re fortunate to have that title pass on to Senator Conyers as well. Again, it’s a great pleasure to be here, all joking aside. I think we’re all luckier, and we’re all very fortunate to have Mr. Conyers as a colleague. I look forward to us all working together with him as we go forward in the end of this session and the next session coming forward.

Senator Meekhof’s statement is as follows:

It’s also my pleasure to stand today and welcome the newest member to the Michigan Senate: Senator Ian Conyers. I bet you’ll never get tired of getting called “Senator.”

He represents the constituents of the 4th Senate District. The Senator from the 4th District carries a well-established family tradition of public service. I look forward to getting to know him better. I’ve had some conversations with him. He’s a very committed individual, and very driven.

I would ask that all my colleagues help join in welcoming our newest Senate colleague to the Michigan Senate, Senator Conyers. Welcome.

Recess

Senator Kowall moved that the Senate recess subject to the call of the Chair.

Office of the Auditor General

November 4, 2016

I am pleased to provide our fiscal year 2016 annual report. It details aspects of our office operations and lists the audit reports issued in the past fiscal year. Article IV, Section 53 of the Michigan Constitution establishes the Office of the Auditor General and requires this annual report.

During the fiscal year, we issued independent auditor’s opinions on 26 sets of financial statements and schedules. Our collaboration with the State Budget Office resulted in the preparation and audit of the State of Michigan Comprehensive Annual Financial Report within 92 days of the fiscal year-end, again setting the national benchmark for timely state government reporting. Our other most extensive project, the Statewide Single Audit, assessed State agency compliance with regulations tied to $23.1 billion in federal funds.

The 40 performance audits that we completed received pointed attention for our work involving the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans, Claimant Services within the Unemployment Insurance Agency, the Child Care Fund, Adult Protective Services, and the Flint drinking water crisis, among many others.

Our top 2017 priorities include:

1. Mechanisms for stakeholders to report suspected fraud, waste, and abuse of tax dollars to the OAG

Recently, we decided to join 34 other state auditor offices by providing State employees and citizens with an avenue for reporting potentially fraudulent activities to our Office. We are identifying the leading practices across the country for efficient and confidential mechanisms to receive and investigate allegations and report the results. We will work closely with the Department of Attorney General or other entities to refer for prosecution any individuals who may have committed a crime.

2. Staff development

We implemented a new mentoring process for our entry-level staff to help ensure their successful transition from academia to the workforce. We are creating a three-year curriculum to ensure that they have consistent training, diverse audit assignments, constructive feedback, and professional growth opportunities. For our management team, we are prioritizing leadership training and preparing for retirements and other attrition.

Throughout the year, we will continue to provide the Legislature and the Executive Office with our six-month audit plans and monthly audit summaries. Citizens may follow our work by visiting the OAG Web site.

We are fortunate to have an incredible team of audit professionals and support staff within the OAG to deliver oversight in an independent, objective, and transparent manner. We welcome the opportunity to provide this information to assist in your decision making. I look forward to working with you this year.

Senator Kowall moved that consideration of the following resolutions be postponed for today:

House Concurrent Resolution No. 3

Senate Resolution No. 76

Senate Resolution No. 75

The motion prevailed.

Senator Ananich offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 220.

A resolution to recognize the diversity in clinical trial forum as sponsored by the Sickle Cell Disease Awareness Association of America, Michigan Chapter.

Whereas, Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disease which affects the red blood cells; and

Whereas, Individuals with sickle cell disease produce abnormally shaped red blood cells that resemble a crescent or sickle and that do not last as long as normal round red blood cells, which leads to anemia. The sickle cells also get stuck in blood vessels and block blood flow, which can cause pain and organ damage; and

Whereas, Pain is the most common complication of sickle cell disease and the primary reason that people with the disease go to the emergency room or hospital; and

Whereas, Sickle cell disease is a chronic condition that can affect any organ, including the kidneys, lungs, and spleen. Research indicates that patients experience many severe complications, including stroke, infections, and pulmonary embolism; and

Whereas, There is no universal cure for sickle cell disease and only one available disease-modifying medication; and

Whereas, Sickle cell disease is a genetic disorder that occurs in individuals who are born with two sickle cell genes, each inherited from one parent. An individual with only one sickle cell gene has “sickle cell trait,” which occurs in one out of every twelve African Americans and in one out of every 100 Latinos in the United States; and

Whereas, According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health, approximately two million Americans carry the sickle cell trait. Many people who have sickle cell trait never know they have it and can live their entire lives without any complications from it; and

Whereas, Complications in sickle cell trait are rare and individuals with sickle cell trait should not be excluded from physical activity, including sports, unless recommended by medical personnel. Instead, people should be educated about universal precautions including adequate hydration and proper conditioning before exertion, and also being familiar with the symptoms of overexertion; and

Whereas, According to the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is estimated that more than 90,000 Americans have sickle cell disease. Sickle cell disease occurs in one out of every 500 African American births and in one out of every 36,000 Latino births; and

Whereas, Individuals living with sickle cell disease encounter barriers to obtaining quality care and improving their quality of life. These barriers include limitations in geographic access to comprehensive care, the varied use of effective treatments, the high reliance on emergency care and public health programs, and the limited number of health care providers with knowledge and experience to manage and treat their illness; and

Whereas, The Sickle Cell Anemia Control Act was signed into law in 1972 by President Richard Nixon after pledging that his administration would “reverse the record of neglect of the dreaded disease” by increasing funding for and expanding sickle cell anemia-related programs, including the development of comprehensive sickle cell centers; and

Whereas, In 1975, the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc., and its member organizations under the leadership of Dr. Charles Whitten began organizing events in September to call attention to sickle cell conditions and the need to address the problem at national and local levels, and chose September as National Sickle Cell Awareness Month in order for the public to reflect on the children and adults whose lives, education, and careers have been affected by this disease; and

Whereas, The effort to officially recognize Sickle Cell Awareness Month succeeded at the federal level in 1983 when the United States House of Representatives unanimously passed, and President Ronald Reagan signed; now, therefore, be it further

Resolved, That special recognition be given for the November 30, 2016, diversity in clinical trial forum as sponsored by the Sickle Cell Disease Awareness Association of America, Michigan Chapter.

Pending the order that, under rule 3.204, the resolution be referred to the Committee on Government Operations,

Senator Kowall moved that the rule be suspended.

The motion prevailed, a majority of the members serving voting therefor.

The resolution was adopted.
