Comments and Recommendations

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

The motion prevailed.

Rep. Afendoulis:

“Thank you Mr. Speaker.

Friends, four years does pass quickly. And as has happened to me over the course of my life, having a last name which begins with the letter A, I have the honor leading off the numerous farewell speeches you will hear over the next four weeks.

At the outset I would like to thank the residents of the 73rd district for granting me the privilege of representing them in this wonderful institution. It has been one of the great honors of my life and I will always cherish the confidence they placed in me.

And to the residents of Grand Rapids Township, where I reside, I send a special thank you. I have represented them for the last 14 years in various elected offices and am grateful for their support as well.

One of the great joys for me in my service was to bring school groups on the house floor and tell them about the chamber. But the one thing I always pointed out to them was what the clerk always says when bills are read in. ‘The people of the State of Michigan enact’. It is an important statement which may pass without notice because we hear it so often. But it should never be forgotten by those who serve here. We are the people’s representatives and we act in their behalf and only through their consent.

In 2010 I sat up in the south gallery with my daughter Sophia and her 4th grade class. I leaned over to her and pointed down to the house floor and told her ‘one day, daddy is going to work here’. ‘Really’ she exclaimed. And I responded ‘Yup’. It really has been a dream come true to serve in the legislature for the people of the state of Michigan.

One thing my late father taught me was to ‘treat everyone with respect and to be yourself’. And that is what I have endeavored to do in my time in Lansing.

I want to thank a number of people today.

• Chief Sergeant Dickson and all the Sergeants of the House. What a wonderful group of public servants who keep us safe and always seem so calm.

• Clerk Randall and Assistant Clerk Brown and their entire staff. What professionalism they exemplify every day. I want specifically to thank Alice, Stephanie, Molly, Eric, Dan and Cheryl for their service to us and the state.

• To the maintenance staff of the Capitol and the HOB who so lovingly and beautifully maintain this ‘living museum’.

• I’d like to thank Doug Simon, Tim Bowlin, and the entire House Business Office.

• To Joelle Demand. Her last name is appropriate. She can be demanding. But she looks after us and accommodates the needs of the members to the best of her ability.

• To speaker’s staff, including the Republican Policy Office.

• To the indispensable House Fiscal Agency led by Mary Ann Cleary and her current and former teammates Jim Stansell, Kyle Jen, Bethany Wicksall, Perry Zielak and Kevin Koorstra among others.

I want to thank speaker Tom Leonard as well as my appropriations chairs Laura Cox and Al Pscholka who I still refer to as ‘The Chairman’ (which he enjoys immensely I might add).

A special thanks to former Speaker Kevin Cotter who showed great confidence in a freshman legislator, asking me to chair the work group to eliminate old criminal laws and appointed me to serve on the special roads and transportation committee. And as chair of the Medicaid sub-committee of appropriations. In addition, when in a pinch, asked me to serve on the criminal justice committee for a short period of time in 2015 and 2016. Many of you may remember the circumstances which precipitated this, but I’ll go no further on that. This afforded me the opportunity to be on a policy committee and the unbelievable experience to serve on a committee with future senator Peter Lucido and really see him in action. And what a sight it was.

I have also enjoyed good relations with my friends on the other side of the aisle. Especially Minority Leader Sam Singh and former Leader Tim Greimel.

Many people think all we do here is fight and I tell them that on most days the opposite is true. We all use our experiences to do what we think is best for our constituents and for our state. We all have interests, we all have families.

Last year I was happy to help young MBA student Abdullah Hammoud with his cost accounting project. I am happy to report he received an outstanding grade and he graciously gave me a bit of credit for the help. I still encourage Robert Witttenberg to widen his horizons and read the Wall Street Journal editorial page. And always enjoyed spending time with Bob Kosowski and now Mayor Andy Schor.

To my seatmates, this term, Tim Kelly. One of the funniest and most knowledgeable people I have ever met. We had some great times and developed a wonderful friendship.

And in the first term, Gary Glenn and Jeff Farrington. I must add that directly in front of us were Tony Forlini and Pete Lucido, also from Macomb county as Jeff is. I think Gary and I sometimes thought we were dropped into an episode of the Sopranos. Gary went through some tough times last term and there were some emotional moments. But usually we spent time with him showing me clippings from the Midland Daily News chronicling his exploits at the Capitol.

And did we share some great laughs over in that row last term and here in this little section this term.

Beyond enjoying a good laugh, those of you who know me best know that I love to sing. And we had some spontaneous moments where Earl Poleski, Eric Leutheuser, Al Pscholka and I would break into song when we spent some long nights here on the floor. Or singing Christmas carols in the rotunda accompanied by Ed McBroom.

I hesitate to name specific individuals, but I have developed special and I hope life long friendships and gone through the crucible with Rob VerHeulen, Jason Sheppard, Mike Webber, Mike McCready and Daniela Garcia. But I hasten to add, I consider all of you my friends. And Yeats summed this up beautifully I think when he wrote ‘Think where man’s glory most begins and ends, and say, my glory was that I had such friends.’

People sometimes ask me why I’m generally so happy. Well why not? To me it’s a choice. How do you view that glass, half empty or half full? And so it is with government. Think of where we have come in the last eight years. There is always more to do, more to improve upon. That is how life is. It has been a remarkable time to serve. The first road funding increase in 17 years, paying down billions in long term debt (a real legacy for our children), 95% of our citizens with health coverage, a new energy policy, pension reform. And so much of this was made possible by our Governor Rick Snyder who takes the slings and arrows with so much grace. Talk about positive and optimistic. It has been an honor to work and serve with him.

I want to give special thanks to my loyal staff. In the first term Trevor TenBrink and Alex Porrett. And this term Emily Rambo. Also special intern Erin Johnston. And to Ben Greene, who has worked with me these four years. Loyal and talented beyond measure. Thanks to all of them.

And last my family. This business is not easy on members families. They hear things they never knew about us. Most of them untrue. But they have to bear up through all of it. So I thank my daughters Mari, Elena and Sophia for all the love and support. Most of all, to my wife Phyllis. At our house, we call her the dream-maker. Because through her love and selflessness, she makes all our dreams come true.

When I chaired the Medicaid committee, a woman came to testify and she began with a song. I thought, ‘Do I gavel her down? And the answer of course was no. Just go with the flow. It was a terrific moment.’ So, how better for me than to close this way.

I’m so glad we had this time together/ just to have a laugh or sing a song/, seems we just get started/and before you know it/, comes the time we have to say so long.

Thank you Mr. Speaker.”

The Speaker assumed the Chair.

Rep. Barrett:

I want to start by thanking my family, for all of the sacrifices and hardships they go through. My wife, Ashley, my kids Patch, Eleanora, and Gwen. My mom Mary Anne and my dad, Patrick, who really got me interested in politics. In fact, my full name is Thomas More Barrett, and my parents named me after Saint Thomas More, the patron saint of lawyers and politicians. Obviously they had low expectations for me when I was born.

I also want to thank my campaign team over these years-Ron Kendall, Tim Langholz, Brandy Nash and Alec Faggion. You guys have my back and I really appreciate that. And Brandy, I will have to find something else to ask you for last minute next year during close of books.

I have to give a shout out to Tom Leonard. Ten years ago next month he was a groomsman in my wedding. My hair was darker and his hair was still on his head. Tom, thanks for being a bold leader and a risk taker for our caucus. But man, whoever coined the term ‘simple majority’ obviously never tried to reform Michigan’s auto insurance law. And thank you to Aaron Miller, Lee Chatfield, and Triston Cole, you have been loyal friends in a town where loyalty is increasingly harder to find. And Lee, as much as I hate to say it I’m going to miss serving in caucus while you are speaker next term.

Thank you to Ben Frederick for your support and mentorship. My new year’s resolution is to become half as popular as you are in Shiawassee County.

Rick Jones has also supported me and offered advice since my first campaign. Last year when I announced I was running for the State Senate I kicked off the morning with a radio interview in studio. As I was at the station looking through that big window waiting for the commercial break to walk in to the studio I looked over at a bulletin board with a bunch of clutter on it, and sticking out from all that clutter is a big oversized post it note pinned on there that just says in huge letters: ‘Rick Jones Cell Phone’ with his number on it. Rick is irreplaceable but I’m going to do my best anyway.

I also want to thank my seatmates for putting up with me. Pat Sommerville taught me how to stick to my principles and still be successful. 1990 CMU homecoming king Jim ‘Tedder Bear’ Tedder (Go Broncos by the way) and this term next to the prom king of Monroe County, Joe Babe Bellino. Joe, you have a great spirit and tremendous optimism. I really value your friendship. Just make sure to take care of Johnson next term.

We have wonderful staff here in the legislature, and I want to thank each and every one of you for the hard work you put in. Especially those of you who are constituents like Chief Dickson, because I have to be nice to you!

Lastly I want to thank the people of Eaton County who took a chance on an Army Grunt to become their state representative 4 years ago. When I ran in 2014 I had never been on the ballot in my district, and I was challenging an incumbent State Representative. Not many people thought we could win. But after a lot of hard work there were 35,000 votes cast and at 2 a.m. the final precinct reported and we won by 148 votes. A clear mandate from the people. But my wife just jabbed me in the ribs and said, ‘congratulations honey, just remember half the people in your district already don’t like you.’ Thanks honey.

There is a line in the soldiers creed that we would recite beside our bunks every night in basic training. It says ‘Brave Soldiers of the past would be proud of me.’ That line has stuck with me throughout my career, across the globe to different countries and on different deployments, and now in my time here in the legislature. I hope our work here has made some brave soldiers proud of what we have done here, and it is what I am the most proud of while I have served here.

To close out I want to tell you about a prayer. Just a couple of days after the election this year Joe Bellino told me he said a prayer for me on election day, he said ‘Lord if this isn’t in your plans for me, at least let Tommy Barrett win.’

And I knew it was Divine Providence that we were seatmates, because I told him ‘Joe, I said the exact same prayer on election day. Lord if this isn’t in your plans for Joe Babe, at least make sure I win!’

The Speaker called Associate Speaker Pro Tempore Tedder to the Chair.

Rep. Brinks:

“I wasn’t planning on going into politics. And I’m not here to talk about Roy Schmidt.

But those of you who were around in 2012, know I started this work only after my predecessor, together with the speaker of the house at the time, engaged in a dishonest, party-switching scheme to deceive the voters of my community. When that news broke on the date of the filing deadline, a lot of people were very angry, including me. I remember thinking, I just want an honest, hardworking representative who cares about people. Is that too much to ask?

So when a friend of mine, who was active in the local party, called me one day, my first question was, ‘Who are you going to get to run against this guy?!’

‘Funny you should ask’ she said, ‘we want you to do it.’

I had no idea how to run a campaign, or what being a state rep really entailed. I had no political experience, no money… nobody knew who I was…. and I get this call asking me to run a write-in campaign, against an incumbent, in a 50/50 seat with only four months to get it done before the election….Even I knew that sounded crazy…. so, naturally, I said yes.

So I stand before you today, an unlikely politician, to deliver words of farewell after three terms in this chamber. I think it’s fair to say, nobody saw me coming…. not even me!

And I have to say, this is the best and worst job I’ve ever had.

From the beginning, I’ve had incredible people around me.

My office staff has been amazing. Not having any prior legislative experience myself, I put Cissy Smith and Vicki Baron in charge of things when I arrived and they did not disappoint. They set the stage for solid constituent services and an ambitious schedule that kept me in the community, meeting with my constituents as much as possible. I benefited a great deal from their previous experiences in other legislators’ offices, and I’ll be forever grateful for their work getting me off to a good start. When Cissy moved on, Eric Walcott took over without skipping a beat and I’m grateful for his years of service with me to the people of Grand Rapids.

I want to offer special thanks to my legislative staff, Ramiro Galvan and Josh Hoebeke. They share my commitment to answering every constituent with care, and every policy question with respect. When a person has a good experience with a legislator and their office, not only is it a whole lot easier to get their vote the next time around, but more importantly, it rightfully places service at the heart of the office.

To my campaign staff over the years, but especially this year, thank you for continuing the no-nonsense, get-it-done tradition of Brinks campaigns. I’d march into battle with you again any day.

I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to work with all of you.

To the policy staff… You turn around memos in no time flat, distill difficult concepts, get answers to our questions when we can’t find them, and I’m convinced you can craft amendments in your sleep. I appreciate you.

To the writers, organizers, photographers, communications staff… thank you for all you do… most of you are overworked and underpaid and you do an excellent job putting up with all of us. I apologize for all the times we are demanding or difficult. Katie Carey deserves special thanks! She was a constant and faithful advisor for me, especially in the early years. I learned more from her than she will ever realize, and I’m incredibly grateful for her guidance and her skillful communication.

To my colleagues, the Magnificent 7, my fellow ‘marginals’ who started with me in 2012…. it appears I am the last one standing… for now at least. Whatever your futures hold, it was a pleasure to travel part of this journey with you. I know how hard you worked in the trenches to do this job well, and I want you to know your comradery and hard work over the years has not gone unnoticed. Thank you.

To Andy Schor, thanks for being a great seat mate, for all the good advice, and for keeping us well stocked with snacks. Since you’ve become Mayor, it’s been a little lonely, but I’ve discovered that Jon Hoadley makes really good cookies and is always great to talk to. And I’m pleased to extend a warm welcome to my new seat mate, Sarah Anthony. The good representative from East Lansing assures me this is a great improvement over my last seat mate.

To Sherry Gay-Dagnogo, sitting across the way from you has been fun…. and having my head inches from the microphone you use has been an experience…. what I wouldn’t give for a voice that carries like yours, and the fact that they can turn off your mic all day long and it does not matter, because everyone can still hear you preaching the word. Your strength is beautiful.

To Jeremy Moss, thanks for teaching me how to tweet, and for inviting me to be an honorary member of the Jewish Caucus.

To Tim Greimel, Sam Singh, and now Chris Greig, you are all such talented and capable leaders, and I’ve learned so much from each of you. You all earned my respect and confidence as soon as I met you, and it’s been an incredible honor to have your support.

Brandon Dillon. From the very beginning, you were there for me. You took a chance on me, and never looked back. You always begin with the end in mind. You are hardworking, dedicated, and really good at whatever you put your mind to. You served the people of Grand Rapids and this state well, and knocked doors every year for the last six years with me, even after becoming state party chair….I miss your floor speeches and your humor….and also….thanks for getting out of the way so I could run for senate. Oh, and, Sorry I forgot to take that big sign out of your yard….

To those of you whom I have not mentioned by name, but whose advice I’ve sought, or with whom I’ve become friends, I thank you for your wise counsel, and for pushing me to be better.

I’ve talked a lot about the people I appreciate, and without fail, I appreciate them because they are honest, hardworking, and they care about people.

The worst part of this job is that the people in charge often seem to care more about winning than they do about serving the people of this state, and that’s a shame.

Moving forward, with a Democratic Governor, and a republican controlled legislature, the leadership in this chamber will have to think and act differently to achieve their goals.

It is my sincere hope that you will take this opportunity to refocus your efforts on providing honest, hardworking representation - that’s not too much to ask…. really it’s the bare minimum people deserve from their legislature.

I will always be grateful to my family and to the people of the 76th district for giving the opportunity to serve as their state representative for the last 6 years, it’s truly been an honor. Thank you.”

Rep. Canfield:

“Thank you Mr. Speaker,

Many of you know, I was brought up on a small farm in Fowlerville, Michigan. My parents, Harold and Jean Canfield, knew each other just three months prior to getting married, and within seven years had six kids. We were not financially well-to-do, some might have describe us as poor, but I never thought that. My parents were openly affectionate to each other and to their children. I am blessed, that never once in my life, have I not felt the safety of their love and support. I have always described our life as being exactly like a Norman Rockwell painting.

That is not to say we did not have problems, or were not disciplined. As you might imagine with five boys and one girl, discipline was required and often. But my folks were consistent. I never received a spanking that I did not earn and have every opportunity to avoid. However, while receiving the belt, my Dad’s favorite mode of discipline, or a spirea bush switch, my Mom’s, I knew that that discipline was given out of love. This consistent love and discipline helped raise good citizens. I have come to appreciate their example of being loving parents. I have also come to realize, that unfortunately for many people, that is not the norm.

As a child I was a poor student. Active, impulsive and having difficulty staying on task, now I would have been easily labeled as having Attention Deficit Disorder. Despite graduating in the lower half of my High School class, I got into Lake Superior State College in the fall of 1973..... on trial. One college term taught me that I wanted to be educated, but I was not ready emotionally or financially, so I left. I worked for a time in factories, realizing quickly, that that was not what I wanted to do! Finally, I enlisted in the U.S. Navy. Interestingly, testing allowed me to pick whatever field of education I desired within the military. I chose the Hospital Corps and something clicked for me, within the military structure I learned to control my impulsivity and I excelled. Through the opportunities offered me during my five year military career, I found confidence and realized I was not just a dumb kid. I obtained an Associate Degree while serving, which to this day, I consider a special life accomplishment.

I have always looked at my life as a series of adventures.

My Navy years were an adventure.

My years at Lake Superior State College, where I returned in 1980 and earned my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology in 1983, was an adventure.

That same year, I was admitted to medical school. Through a clerical error however, the class was over filled. We were offered the option to sit out a year with a guaranteed seat in the next year’s class.

I accepted the opportunity and lived by myself for a year on the South shore of Lake Superior as caretaker of an abandoned US Life Saving Station known as Vermilion Point. This was my Henry David Thoreau experience. A wonderful adventure.

In 1984 the two greatest adventures of my life began and thankfully still going on:

First, my 34 year marriage to an extraordinary woman, Cheryl Canfield, which has been blessed with love, our four children, Korey, Mary, Timothy and Emily, and to date, two son-in-laws, three grandchildren with another on the way. Their love, and support in the process of getting and staying elected; well, most of you know when I say, I could never thank them enough.

Secondly, Cheryl and I both entered Medical School at MSU in 1984, leading to our Osteopathic Medical Degrees and this year marks 30 years as practicing physicians, with all of the blessings that has provided.

Being elected to this great House the last two terms has been a tremendous adventure. My research tells me I am the first Osteopathic physician to be elected to the Michigan House of Representatives. I am proud of that and pleased to have brought the perspective of a rural practicing Family Physician to the Legislature. My friend and mentor Senator Mike Green told me that ‘your colleagues will love having the perspective of physicians in the legislature, just don’t expect them to take your advice.’ I’m sure that my colleague Dr. John Bizon will agree with that assessment as well. It gives me comfort that he will continue to provide Medicine’s perspective to the legislature, but in the Senate next term. Congratulations again John.

I have been fortunate to be embraced by my colleagues, given responsibility and opportunity. I thank Speaker Cotter who through the committee’s process reviewed my request to be on all Policy committees during my first term. Being the good attorney he is, he read the fine print and my freshman mistake writing; ‘These are the committees I want, but I’m a team player, and will do what I’m asked.’ He placed me on Appropriations. But, I was thankful to be named the Chair to the Department of Transportation’s Sub-committee, along with four other sub-committees of my interest.

During my second term I stayed with Appropriations. I thank Speaker Leonard and Chairwoman Cox for trusting me with Chairing the DHHS Sub-committee and my other assignments.

The education and guidance provided by Chairman Pscholka with his Budget Boot Camp put all of us on good footing. That process has continued with Chairwoman Cox. Both were very clear regarding their expectations and goals. They gave me the leeway to manage the budgets under my care and I thank them both for that.

The House Fiscal folks make it so we can do our jobs. Mary Ann Cleary, you and your staff are truly experts and show great patience and tolerance in addressing our many questions. Thank you for the education and resources that your team provides. Bill Hamilton, Kevin Koorstra, Susan Frey, Viola Wild, you were very important to whatever success I might claim in the final product.

The House staff, underpaid and overworked, I can’t begin to thank. Mike, John, Jeff, Josiah, Kim, Becky, and many that have moved on now on to greater opportunities, Elizabeth, Sam, Tom and so many others, thank you.

Thanks is rarely given to the Departments of this State, where dedicated individuals work endlessly to address the morass of regulation and reporting hoops that we and the Federal Government require them to jump through, besides managing their departments. I don’t know how they do it, but I recognize and appreciate their work.

My office staff, Dave Jessup, Tim Holland, Emily Mortl, Mike Hart, Nick Tolfree, Natalie Holland, Brian Sapita for everything you have done, I thank you.

I wish to thank my friends and constituents of Huron and Tuscola Counties, who have for two terms expressed their faith in me. I have tried to represent you well.

I am thankful for the counsel and guidance of Clerk’s Randall and Brown. Chief Dickson and to all the sergeants thank you for protecting us and befriending us. And Alice, thank you for being our Den Mother, at least that’s what it has felt like to me.

My seat mates: Tim Kelly, that old curmudgeon. During my first term, Tim taught me a great deal about statesmanship, about how to be my own man here, and how to just say no sometimes, because it is the right thing to do. And Pastor Jeff Noble, I have enjoyed our many conversations through the too many hours we spent on this floor. Thank you Gentlemen.

I wish time would permit me to recognize and thank all my friends and colleagues. Great examples include; Pete Pettalia, Dave Pagel, Bob Kosowski, Rob VerHeulen, Amanda Price, Henry Yanez, Martin Howrylak, Chris Afendoulis, Pete Lucido, Pam Faris, Sam Singh, Tom Albert and Earl Poleski. It has been a pleasure to work these quality people, each for their own reasons and I could name a dozen others.

I am proud of the accomplishments that I have been part of within this body.

Budgets out, balanced and early. This will provide an important challenge to the next administration.

I was very humbled to be assigned to two special committees, Speaker Cotter assigned me to the Joint Select Committee on the Flint Water Emergency and Speaker Leonard assigned me to the House C.A.R.E.S. Mental Health Task Force. Through these we were educated as to the problems and facts facing the people of our State. Many policy recommendation have been brought forward, much work remains to be done.

I am thankful to Reps. Neeley and Chang who asked me early on to participate in hearings about the water and health problems in Flint and other areas in the state.

We have been somewhat successful in attempting to stabilize and promote primary care in rural and urban underserved areas, with an aging population much more will need to be done.

But for me personally, ensuring that the Caro Center Psychiatric Hospital will stay in Caro, and my part in that, will be the crowning achievement of my legislative career.

Even with that, there remains great need to support the mental health of persons in Michigan. People who would be better served seeing a psychiatrist rather than a prison guard. We need to find ways to expand this system in our State. A good start would be to identify and fund a State psychiatric facility in Northern Michigan. The department is working on that, I urge my colleagues to support that initiative when it comes before you.

Finally, when it is all said and done, really, all we have is Time. How are we going to spend it and with whom? Throughout my career, my wife and family have supported me, and should I have run for a third term, I am sure they would have continued to support my decision. But, I have decided to return my focus toward home. I really don’t know what I will do, likely practice medicine, perhaps teach, play more music. I will remain engaged, but be a bit more nearsighted with my vision.

My mom and dad, at 88 and 92, after 69 years of marriage, have been such great examples. They deserve more of my attention. My children need help fixing things that they don’t have time to fix. My grandchildren need to learn how to fish and hunt, and learn that work is not a four letter word. Cheryl, may have a bit of trouble, but I suspect that she will get used to me being around. We need to continue working on our Norman Rockwell life together and looking forward to beginning the next great adventure.

God has blessed me, I am a happy man. I wish Speaker-elect Chatfield and all of you the best. Thank you for continuing this important work and may God bless you.

Thank you.”

By unanimous consent the House returned to the order of

Motions and Resolutions

Reps. Hoadley, Canfield, Chirkun, Gay-Dagnogo, Green, Howrylak, Kelly, Maturen, Phelps, Sneller and Sowerby offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 416.

A resolution to declare November 2018 as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a pain disorder that results in debilitating pain concentrated in an extremity or organ; and

Whereas, CRPS is known to be caused by damage to the Peripheral and Central Nervous System after an injury. Due to the nature of its onset, CRPS can affect anyone at any age; though women are known to have higher diagnosis rates; and

Whereas, According to the McGill Pain Index, CRPS is ranked as the most painful chronic condition, citing not only the physical severity, but the psychological ramifications as well; and

Whereas, Symptoms are reported as ‘burning’ and ‘pins and needles’ sensations encasing the affected area. Though CRPS may stem from a simple finger injury, often the pain spreads throughout the limb and in extreme cases can travel to the opposite extremity; and

Whereas, There is no specific test that can diagnose CRPS. Often multiple conditions present similar symptoms requiring extensive and prolonged examination. This leaves individuals with CRPS to not only take on the burden of constant pain, but the financial burden of such a diagnosis process; and

Whereas, The FDA has no approved drug to treat CRPS, current treatments include a mix of physical therapy, psychotherapy, and a variety of medications with an even larger variety of symptoms; and

Whereas, CRPS is a private and personally-experienced condition, thus suffering often is hidden from the public eye. Dedicating November 2018 to the awareness of CRPS will provide a platform for individuals living with this condition to share their experiences, find support within their often veiled community, and educate the public and healthcare professionals about CRPS to encourage more research regarding treatment and cures for CRPS; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare November 2018 as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Awareness Month in the state of Michigan. We encourage greater awareness of this condition and recognize the day-to-day hardships of those afflicted by CRPS.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Hoadley, Canfield, Chirkun, Gay-Dagnogo, Green, Howrylak, Kahle, Kelly, Maturen, Phelps, Sneller and Sowerby offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 417.

A resolution to declare November 2018 as COPD Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The state of Michigan has long been concerned with the health of its citizens; and

Whereas, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a term used to refer to a group of diseases causing airflow obstruction and breathing related problems including emphysema and chronic bronchitis as well as asthma and severe bronchiectasis; and

Whereas, COPD is a chronic and progressive disease that affects over 24 million persons nationwide and hundreds of thousands in Michigan, half of whom have not been properly diagnosed and 70% of whom are under the age of 65. COPD has become the third leading cause of death for Michigan residents; and

Whereas, COPD kills more than 120,000 Americans every year and causes one death every 4 minutes. COPD is considered to be the 2nd leading cause of disability in the U.S.; and

Whereas, More than 75% of COPD cases in the United States are attributed to smoking and are easily preventable. Other factors include environmental and exposure to air pollution, second hand smoke, and genetics. Nationwide the direct and indirect cost of COPD in 2010 was $49.9 billion; and

Whereas, Coordinated public outreach efforts, such as the establishment of state COPD coalitions and the National Institutes of Health National Action Plan, can lead to improvements to public health and reduced healthcare costs; and

Whereas, Awareness, early detection, and treatment are crucial in the prevention and slowing the spread of COPD leading to reduced costs, increased productivity, and improved quality of life for Michigan residents; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That members of this legislative body declare November 2018 as COPD Awareness Month in the state of Michigan. We urge the residents of Michigan to use this opportunity to become informed about their respiratory health and of the factors that affect it.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Howrylak, Canfield, Chirkun, Gay-Dagnogo, Green, Kelly, Maturen, Phelps and Sneller offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 418.

A resolution to declare November 24, 2018, as Holodomor Memorial Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Millions of Ukrainians perished as a result of the Ukrainian Famine and Genocide (Holodomor) of 1932-33; and

Whereas, The term “Holodomor” is a Ukrainian word that means “extermination by means of starvation”; and

Whereas, It is recognized that the Soviet authorities denied, concealed, or destroyed information about the Holodomor and that accurate information about this tragic event has only recently been made available; and

Whereas, The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), the largest regional security organization in the world, passed a resolution that welcomes the recognition of the Holodomor in the United Nations, by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and by the national parliaments of a number of the OSCE participating states; and

Whereas, The OSCE strongly encourages all parliaments and legislatures to adopt acts regarding recognition of the Holodomor; and

Whereas, Some of the survivors of the Holodomor and their descendants reside in Michigan and have contributed to Michigan’s cultural, economic, political, and educational life; and

Whereas, The people of Michigan value democratic freedoms, human rights, and the rule of law, honor the values of compassion and honesty, and cherish the multicultural vibrancy of the state; and

Whereas, The 4th Saturday in November has been recognized internationally as a day to commemorate the Holodomor; and

Whereas, The year 2018 marks the 85th anniversary of the Holodomor; and

Whereas, It is important and fitting to observe Holodomor Memorial Day for the purposes of recognizing the Holodomor and of reflecting on the horrific legacy of this event; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare November 24, 2018, as Holodomor Memorial Day in the state of Michigan.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Cochran, Canfield, Chirkun, Gay-Dagnogo, Green, Phelps, Sneller and Sowerby offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 419.

A resolution to urge Michigan residents and businesses to comply with the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora and not buy or sell ivory of unknown origin.

Whereas, The sale of newly harvested African elephant ivory has been banned since 1989. The United States and 182 other countries have signed onto the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora prohibiting these sales, and the United States has adopted laws and regulations; and

Whereas, Despite the ban, tens of thousands of African elephants and rhinoceroses are being slaughtered in Africa each year by poachers intent on selling their ivory. It has been reported that family clusters of elephants are being slaughtered by automatic weapons in Africa, and the rhinoceros population has been similarly decimated throughout Africa as criminal gangs kill rhinoceroses for ivory; and

Whereas, The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora noted that elephant slaughter has reached crisis proportions. The most comprehensive scientific survey ever has found that the population declined by 144,000 elephants between 2007 and 2014, a 30 percent loss. In recent years, it is estimated that 8 percent of the population is lost each year, primarily to poaching; and

Whereas, African elephants and rhinoceroses are nearing extinction. Scientists believe the population of elephants and rhinoceroses cannot withstand this slaughter; and

Whereas, The demand for ivory in the United States and other countries is driving the illegal trafficking of ivory and the decline in elephants and rhinoceroses. A 2016 analysis found that global ivory seizures have tripled since 2007. Eliminating this demand is crucial to saving African elephants and rhinoceroses; and

Whereas, Federal law allows African ivory to be legally sold within Michigan as jewelry, figurines, and antiques if it was imported before 1989 with proper documentation. It may be sold or purchased across state lines if it is an antique that is at least one hundred years old or if it is a small part of certain larger manufactured or handcrafted items; and

Whereas, The illegal sale of new products containing ivory continues to be a problem in the United States. Despite the international and national bans, a 2008 study found that one-third of ivory products sold in the United States may have had illegal origins.

Reps. Vaupel, Canfield, Chirkun, Gay-Dagnogo, Kelly, Maturen, Phelps and Sneller offered the following concurrent resolution:

House Concurrent Resolution No. 27.

A concurrent resolution to declare Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) a critical health issue, commit the Legislature to action, and encourage the Governor to direct agencies to assess and report progress on reducing ACEs.

Whereas, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are now widely recognized as a dominant factor in the current and future well-being of children due to the harmful effects of toxic stress related to abuse (including physical, emotional, and sexual abuse), neglect (including physical and emotional neglect), and various family dysfunctions; and

Whereas, The relationship between ACEs and future health issues and conditions has an evidence-based foundation starting with the groundbreaking ACE study conducted collaboratively between the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Kaiser Permanente. This study has been cited more than 17,000 times in peer-reviewed scientific research articles; and

Whereas, The growing body of evidence on the science of human development incorporates research findings on ACEs and the long-term neurobiological, biomedical, and epigenetic consequences of toxic stress; and

Whereas, National and state surveys indicate that as many as 70 percent of Michigan adults had at least one ACE during their childhood and as much as 20 percent of Michigan’s adult population had four or more ACEs; and

Whereas, The relationship between ACEs and the current prevalence of chronic disease, addictive behaviors, and related conditions is now recognized by many as a major public health crisis. Nationwide, these conditions and illnesses cost billions of dollars in resources and reduce lifetime expectancy, and they all have their roots in childhood trauma; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That we declare that ACEs constitute a critical health issue in Michigan and commit to an ongoing strategy to significantly reduce ACEs in Michigan through legislative leadership, legislative acts, appropriations, reporting, and oversight; and be it further

Resolved, That we encourage the Governor to issue an executive directive that would require administrating agencies to assess if the implementation of their programs reduces ACEs and provide an annual state report and data to the Legislature and general public about progress in reducing ACEs in Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Governor of the State of Michigan and the Director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

The concurrent resolution was referred to the Committee on Health Policy.
