Pastor Andrew Kluck, Assistant Pastor of Faith Christian Family Church in Lapeer, offered the following invocation:

“Father God, in light of the sacrifice of Jesus, we come before Your throne of grace boldly asking for Your help in our time of need.

Your word, in Psalms 145:18 says that You are near to all who call upon You in truth. Today, we call upon You humbly, and we ask that You send Your Spirit to come and give wisdom and insight to each of our leaders. Strengthen them and give them peace as they sacrifice and serve, and stand in representation for the communities across our state. Give them courage to make decisions that defend our freedoms, our families, and our future.

Lord Your Word is the lamp that guides us and the light that leads us. Let Your word shine brightly here in our capital and in every municipality throughout the state of Michigan. Aid the people of this great state as we strive to work diligently and live honorably. Please give encouragement to our local leaders and business owners, and protect our police officers and servicemen and women worldwide.

Finally Father, we thank You for today. It is the day that You have made, a gift that we receive gladly. Supply for the needs of Your people this day Lord, be near to us, and deliver us from evil. We pray all these things in the wonderful Name of Jesus Your Son. Amen.”

Motions and Resolutions

Reps. Camilleri, Chang, Clemente, Liberati, Geiss, Cochran, Ellison, Greig, Maturen, Phelps, Sneller and Sowerby offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 409.

A resolution to memorialize the President of the United States and the United States Environmental Protection Agency to reverse their decision to close the Large Lakes Research Station in Grosse Ile, Michigan.

Whereas, The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) intends to close the Large Lakes Research Station located in Grosse Ile, Michigan. The closure is scheduled for early 2019, with operations and personnel relocated to the site of the National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ann Arbor, Michigan; and

Whereas, Staff of the Large Lakes Research Station play a critical role in responding to environmental emergencies and enforcing environmental laws to protect human health and the environment. Over the station’s 48-year history, emergency response staff have responded to more than a thousand chemical, oil, and hazardous substance releases in Michigan, principally in southeast Michigan, and more than 70 percent of EPA law enforcement criminal prosecutions have occurred in southeast Michigan; and

Whereas, The Large Lakes Research Station lies within minutes of the McLouth Steel Trenton and Gibraltar Superfund sites, allowing rapid response to emergencies at these sites. Due to this proximity, emergency response staff have been able to respond quickly to past emergencies—including a sedimentation basin fire, leachate release, and mercury spill—and oversee time critical cleanup actions. This McLouth Trenton site will only demand more attention in the future if the southern portion is added to the National Priorities List as recently proposed; and

Whereas, Relocating Large Lakes Research Station personnel will delay emergency response times where every minute counts to protect the public and our natural resources. Nearly 40 percent of emergencies have occurred within 25 miles of the current office location. Instead of being within 20 to 30 minutes of these emergencies and the McLouth Steel Superfund sites, these first responders will now be up to an hour away and within the busy Ann Arbor area where long traffic delays are common; and

Whereas, The Large Lakes Research Station includes staff for the Great Lakes National Program Office, which implements the highly successful Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI). The GLRI has played a key role in restoring the biological and physical integrity of many Michigan waterways; and

Whereas, Protecting our water, one of our most precious natural resources, should be a top priority in southeast Michigan and our entire Great Lakes state, and the EPA’s Large Lakes Research Station on Grosse Ile plays a vital role in this effort; and

Whereas, The closing of the Large Lakes Research Station does not appear to result in any significant cost savings that justify the loss in efficiently responding to environmental emergencies or the other critical functions of this local office; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we memorialize the President of the United States and the United States Environmental Protection Agency to reverse their decision to close the Large Lakes Research Station in Grosse Ile, Michigan; and be it further

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

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Natural Resources.

Reps. Bellino, Cochran, Ellison, Faris, Greig, Howrylak, Hughes, Kelly, Liberati, Marino, Maturen, Phelps and Wittenberg offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 410.

A resolution to declare October 5-7, 2018, as Buy Nearby Weekend in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Buy Nearby is an ongoing, year-round campaign launched by the Michigan Retailers Association to benefit Michigan communities and their retail businesses; and

Whereas, The campaign, now in its sixth year, encourages Michiganders to buy from retail businesses where they live, work or visit in Michigan so more shopping dollars stay in our local communities and state economy; and

Whereas, Buy Nearby strives to instill a “Pure Michigan” feeling to the shopping experience and send the message to “Keep your money in the Mitten”; and

Whereas, Retailing is responsible for 877,000 jobs in Michigan, a number that could rise through increased local purchases; and

Whereas, If Michigan shoppers switched just one in ten of their out-of-state purchases to a Michigan retailer, it would create an additional $1.2 billion in economic activity and nearly 10,600 new jobs amounting to $350 million in additional wages; and

Whereas, Each purchase made at a Michigan store keeps more money within Michigan communities, improving the vitality of Michigan’s local economies and the quality of life, and directly supports our communities, our schools, and our infrastructure; and

Whereas, The year-round Buy Nearby campaign has designated October 5-7, 2018, as Buy Nearby Weekend, a three-day observance for all to celebrate local communities and their retail businesses; and

Whereas, Communities and retailers are encouraged to offer special events and other promotions to encourage local shopping and stimulate Michigan’s economy on Buy Nearby Weekend; and

Whereas, Residents are encouraged to shop with family and friends and support their communities and local retailers by posting photos and comments on social media; and

Whereas, Buy Nearby Weekend will demonstrate that buying nearby can be fun and rewarding; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That members of this legislative body declare October 5-7, 2018, as Buy Nearby Weekend in the state of Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That the people of the state of Michigan are encouraged to buy nearby on these three days and every day.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Runestad, Howrylak, Kesto, Hernandez, McCready, Afendoulis, Webber, Hauck, Victory, VanSingel, Crawford, Frederick, Farrington, Kelly, Hornberger, Glenn, LaFave, Bellino, Hughes, Marino, Bizon, Ellison, VerHeulen, Tedder, Barrett, Whiteford, Allor, Sheppard, Pagel, Brann, Love, Dianda, Hertel, Cochran, Peterson, Singh, Robinson, Rabhi, Kosowski, LaSata, Neeley, Sneller, Greig, Maturen and Phelps offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 411.

A resolution to declare October 18, 2018, as American Middle East Christian Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, There are over six million Middle East Christians across the United States including Arab Christians, Armenians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Coptics, Maronites, Phoenicians, Syriacs, and others; and

Whereas, In Michigan, there are approximately half a million Middle East Christians spanning over eight generations; and

Whereas, American Middle East Christians are a culturally rich community representing American Christians descending from all Middle East nations; and

Whereas, The American Middle East Christians are descendants of the cradle of civilization and hail from the ancient regions of the world. The ancestors of Middle East Christians have contributed significantly to the world’s greatest achievements, including the Hammurabi Code, the world’s first known written set of laws. Their monuments are considered wonders of the world, including the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and the Pyramids; and

Whereas, Many American Middle East Christians continue to speak the ancient language, Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus Christ. Today, the families of American Middle East Christians face religious and civil persecution, forced conversion, expulsion, and near extinction in homelands. Nevertheless, they have not wavered from their faith and culture; and

Whereas, American Middle East Christians contribute today to American society and culture in all areas, including government, politics, science, and the arts; and

Whereas, Many of the American Middle East Christians’ family members overseas continue to seek refuge in Michigan for economic, political and religious freedom. Many American Middle East Christians in Michigan own thriving businesses with a solid contribution and investment in Michigan’s growing economy. American Middle East Christians in Michigan are a testament to the strength of their Christian faith and a culture of forgiveness and sacrifice as they strive to make a positive impact on their communities. The state of Michigan is proud of its cultural diversity and welcomes the opportunity to honor and recognize its American Middle East Christian citizens; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare October 18, 2018, as American Middle East Christian Day in the state of Michigan. We encourage all citizens to commemorate and honor the many accomplishments and contributions that the American Middle East community has made to our state, nation and world; and be it further

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be sent to the American Middle East Christians Congress in Michigan, as honorary evidence of the highest esteem of the members of the Michigan Legislature.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Brinks, Faris, Pagan, Chang, Geiss, Sneller, Sowerby, Singh, Hammoud, Guerra, Camilleri, Greig, Moss, Afendoulis, Sabo, Cambensy, Garrett, Greimel, Byrd, Cochran, Ellison, Chirkun, Yanez, Yancey, Gay-Dagnogo, Zemke, Hoadley, Hertel, Durhal, Wittenberg, Lasinski, Green, Love, Clemente and Phelps offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 412.

A resolution to urge the United States Senate to develop fair, deliberative, and neutral protocols to address and investigate sexual assault and harassment claims related to presidential nominations subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.

Whereas, Under Article II, Section 2 of the United States Constitution, the President nominates and appoints judges of the Supreme Court, ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and numerous other officers of the United States, subject to the advice and consent of the United States Senate; and

Whereas, The advice and consent process plays a vital role in ensuring a nominee’s fitness and the public’s trust in the men and women who serve in our nation’s most distinguished offices. It provides an open and public process to determine that nominees meet the highest qualifications and our highest expectations of integrity; and

Whereas, Sexual assault and harassment claims against nominees are serious and relevant considerations in the confirmation process. These claims strike at the heart of a nominee’s integrity and, as such, their fitness to serve in high office; and

Whereas, The current process for addressing sexual assault and harassment claims that arise during the confirmation process does little to evaluate the veracity of accusations. Instead, serious claims have been reduced to sensational hearings, rushed investigations, and accusations of political partisanship that treat neither the nominee nor his or her accuser with the dignity and respect that they deserve; and

Whereas, People across our nation are engaging in a public dialogue about sexual assault and harassment. As a society, we have too long dismissed or disbelieved the pain and trauma of victims, thus implicitly condoning such acts and allowing them to perpetuate. The current dialogue is addressing critical issues like the common delay in reporting or decision not to report incidents to law enforcement, the psychological responses and long-term trauma that can result from sexual assault, and the lack of educational information and resources for our students about these topics; and

Whereas, The manner in which our United States Senate responds to allegations of sexual assault or harassment by a nominee can shape the understanding of men and women across our country regarding these important issues and what is acceptable or not acceptable in American society. Adopting clear procedures that encourage victims to come forward with assurances that they will be treated fairly and equitably would be a significant statement that, as a nation, we will no longer tolerate these acts as well as ensure public confidence in the eventual appointee; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge the United States Senate to develop fair, deliberative, and neutral protocols to address and investigate sexual assault and harassment claims related to presidential nominations subject to the advice and consent of the Senate; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States Senate and Michigan’s United States Senators.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Law and Justice.
