Deacon Ron Kenney of St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church of Goodrich offered the following invocation:

Dear God, at the start of this day, may we experience the beauty, the abundance, and maybe even a little bit of rain, and power and the joy that is Your wish for all humankind; that we, who are called to serve, might be a vessel for these things in the lives of others. May we see the light at the center of our being and believe in the power within each one of us.

Today, Lord, deliver us to our passion. Deliver us to our brilliance. Deliver us to our beauty. Deliver us to our service to others. Deliver us to Your will. Deliver us to do what each of us is called to do to make this world熔ur world預 better place for the many, not just a few.

Guide us by Your wisdom. Support us by Your power. You desire justice for all. Enable us to uphold the rights of others and do not allow us to be misled by ignorance or corrupted by fear or favor. Unite us for the service that each of us is called to. Lord, may everything we do begin with Your inspiration and continue with Your help, so that all our prayers and works may begin in You and by You be a happy ending.

In God痴 name we say. Amen.

Senators VanderWall, Shirkey, Bizon, Nesbitt, Theis, McBroom, Zorn, Lauwers, Bumstead, Horn, Stamas, LaSata, Outman, Victory, MacDonald and Daley offered the following concurrent resolution:

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 14.

A concurrent resolution to disapprove the proposed final action taken by the Certificate of Need Commission on the Certificate of Need (CON) Review Standards for Immune Effector Cell Therapy (IECT) Services.

Whereas, The Certificate of Need Commission voted on September 19, 2019, to approve a proposed final action on the Certificate of Need (CON) Review Standards for Immune Effector Cell Therapy (IECT) Services. The standards would require providers to receive state approval and third-party accreditation to deliver IECT services to Michigan patients. The proposed final action was submitted on September 24, 2019 to the joint legislative committee established by MCL 333.22219; and

Whereas, Pursuant to MCL 333.22215, the Legislature may disapprove a proposed final action of the CON Commission within 45 days after the date of submission to the members of the joint legislative committee. Legislative disapproval shall be expressed by concurrent resolution adopted by each house of the Legislature. A proposed final action by the CON Commission to develop, approve, disapprove, or revise CON review standards for the initiation, replacement, or expansion of covered clinical services is not effective if it has been disapproved; and

Whereas, The Certificate of Need (CON) Review Standards for Immune Effector Cell Therapy (IECT) Services would limit patient access to innovative, new cancer treatments. Through their review and approval process, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration already requires comprehensive safety criteria and standards for facilities providing cell therapies. It is unnecessary to require additional onerous and costly approvals and accreditations on facilities that go beyond federal government requirements. Additional requirements may discourage or prevent sites from providing IECT services in Michigan; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That we disapprove the proposed final action taken on the Certificate of Need (CON) Review Standards for Immune Effector Cell Therapy (IECT) Services by the Certificate of Need Commission on September 19, 2019; and be it further

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

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

Senator MacGregor moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The concurrent resolution was adopted.

 

 

Protests

 

 

Senators Brinks, Moss, Santana, Bayer, Polehanki, McMorrow, Bullock, McCann, Wojno, Alexander, Ananich, Geiss, Chang and Hertel, under their constitutional right of protest (Art. 4, Sec. 18), protested against the adoption of Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 14.

Senator Brinks moved that the statement she made during the discussion of the resolution be printed as her reasons for voting 渡o.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Brinks statement, in which Senators Moss, Santana, Bayer, Polehanki, McMorrow, Bullock, McCann, Wojno, Alexander, Ananich, Geiss, Chang and Hertel concurred, is as follows:

It is without question an unconstitutional legislative veto. When the Legislature wants to act, it has to act in a binding manner. It has to pass a bill and submit it to the Governor for her consideration. This resolution circumvents that established process by excluding the Governor. Today痴 attempt to circumvent the executive branch痴 constitutional authority has already been struck down by the Michigan Supreme Court in Blank v. Department of Corrections back in the year 2000.

It is on the books and has been for nearly two decades. In that decision, the Michigan Supreme Court noted, with approval, the view that the Legislature may act by resolution in an advisory capacity, but that when it needs to take action having a binding effect on those outside the Legislature, it may do so only by following the enactment procedures. That means by passing a bill, not a concurrent resolution. The question before us today is no different, and it is our duty to uphold the constitution of this state. I would point out that the subsection that the majority relies on in its resolution predates the Blank decision by several years. It was written in 1988, well before the court decision. For this reason, I oppose this resolution and urge my colleagues to do the same.

 

 

Senator VanderWall asked and was granted unanimous consent to make a statement and moved that the statement be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator VanderWall痴 statement is as follows:

On September 19, 2019 the Certificate of Need Commission adopted a new standard to regulate immune effector cell therapy by requiring any facility administering treatments to be accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy, better known as FACT.

Immune effector cell therapy is the future of cancer treatment. Modern medicine has found a way to personalize medicine at the molecular level and save lives. This treatment has provided hope for patients and their families who have been told there is no hope. It is bringing patients back from the brink of death and giving them a new chance at life預 chance that shouldn稚 be taken away by bureaucratic hurdles and unnecessary regulations. That痴 exactly what this new standard proposed by the Certificate of Need Commission would do. That is why I stand before you today asking for your support in helping our constituents gain access to the most innovative cancer treatments in the most appropriate settings.

Currently there are 500 clinical tests underway in a variety of settings across the country. These trials are being conducted in both FACT and non-FACT accredited sites. Up until now, the manufacturers of these life-saving treatments have been able to determine the most appropriate setting for these clinical trials to take place. In some instances, it makes sense for patients to stay closer to where they live, receive the treatment in an outpatient facility, and recover in the comfort of their home and community. In other instances, it still makes sense for them to have to travel to a larger hospital setting and receive inpatient treatment. This is not one-size-fits-all technology. To treat it as such would be a true disservice to our constituents.

But don稚 take my word for it. On August 7 of this year the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services佑MS羊eleased a National Coverage Decision regarding coverage for CAR T-Cell cancer therapy. They specifically reviewed FACT accreditation and determined it was not necessary. Instead CMS and FDA require risk evaluations and mitigation strategies, better known as REMS. Just so everyone is clear預t FACT-accredited sites REMS is still required to administer cell therapy. Requiring REMS and FACT simply creates redundancy and extra cost.

Not only will Michigan be out of sync with the federal government and Medicare, Michigan will be the only state to require additional state-level government oversight of this procedure. Let me reiterate葉he only state out of 50. We will become an outlier in restricting patient access to these exciting new cancer treatments.

So what can we do about it? How can we protect our constituents and ensure Michiganders don稚 lose access to life-saving cancer treatment? Under current law the Legislature can disapprove of a proposed final action by the commission with a concurrent resolution to reject any standard adopted by the Certificate of Need Commission. Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 14 before us today would do just that to this new standard.

The stated purpose of Certificate of Need is to balance cost, quality and access issues, and ensure that only needed services are developed in Michigan. The new standard increases costs by adding more bureaucratic red tape, provides no noticeable difference in quality, and forcing patients out of their home to travel hours will restrict access unnecessarily.

Colleagues, I urge you to join me today in voting for this resolution and reject this new standard. Michigan does not need to add another layer of government bureaucracy at the state level; the two layers at the federal level are more than enough. Reject this new standard today and ensure that Michigan cancer patients will have the same access to treatment facilities as cancer patients in other states.

Thank you, Mr. President, and I urge a 土es vote on this resolution.

Statements

 

 

Senator Johnson asked and was granted unanimous consent to make a statement and moved that the statement be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Johnson痴 statement is as follows:

I壇 like to thank this body for passing Senate Bill Nos. 117 and 297 today that will allow for a secure electronic return process for military ballots for active duty members serving overseas. The idea came from a bipartisan group of Secretary of States who traveled to the Middle East and met with military leaders and troops at five bases, three ships, and in three countries. I also would like to thank Tom Barrett; he had this type of bill previously; and also thank Senator Paul Wojno.

It痴 particularly for troops on forward deployment in combat zones who are serving on military sea vessels, because postal service can be very inconsistent. The process will ensure integrity using the Department of Defense Common Access Card, known as CAC, used now to transmit classified military documents. The CAC includes an integrated circuit chip and is required along with the servicemember痴 password and pin to access military networks. Even in remote areas, due to the military requirements, servicemembers routinely have Internet access. I壇 like to thank you for your support of this important legislation to help our military men and women vote.
