Senator Curtis Hertel of the 23rd District offered the following invocation:

Heavenly Father, bless this body. God, we live in dangerous and divided times where it sometimes seems impossible to see the humanity in each other. While a virus runs through our land, the most dangerous virus may be the division in our country.

God, help us to see the good in each other. Remind us that evil does not know any race, color, creed, or political party. Help us to see the decency in each of us. Remind us of one of the most basic commandments You gave us葉o love thy neighbor. No caveats溶ot 鼠ove my neighbor who agrees with me. It is easy to stoke the fears and exploit the anger of people for our own benefit to further divide this state and our nation. As public servants, our job is to find a way to look past our differences and to do what痴 right for all Your people.

God, remind us that while we have an incredibly important job, that does not make us important people. Remind us that our fancy titles and offices do not make us infallible. Do not let our ego get in the way of what痴 best for our state.

God, our people are hurting. And while we may disagree on the solutions or the cause, in the spirit of the holiday season let us all give of ourselves over the next two weeks to find common ground and put people first.

Finally, God, remind us that all of us go through trials and tribulations. Remind us that we have no idea the pain and the challenges in each other痴 lives and that if we show grace and empathy and care for each other, we may find our way to make a better world.

God bless these members, God bless our staffs, God bless our families, and God bless the people of Michigan.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

 

The President, Lieutenant Governor Gilchrist, led the members of the Senate in recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Santana痴 statement is as follows:

I just want to say that this package of bills here is also a part of all of the hard work and dedication by the Pretrial Incarceration Task Force that we致e had over the past two years.

These bills will help support individuals who have misdemeanors on their record and changing some of the misdemeanors in our statutes to citations and also changing some of our felony violations that did not make sense to be felonies to misdemeanors. I want to say that our House members as well as our Senate members here who worked on this package of bills have worked really hard and dedicated their time to making sure that this legislation was not only meaningful for the people who are impacted by it, but also meaningful for our state.

We are one of the states that unfortunately incarcerates a lot of people pre-trial, where they don稚 have the opportunity to have their fair day in court but still be out of being in jail prior to that timeframe. A lot of people傭ecause they can稚 make bail or they couldn稚 pay their ticket葉hey池e sitting in jail and not being able to take care or sustain their families during that time. I知 really excited that this legislation is passing today on this floor in the Senate because it痴 so meaningful to a lot of Michiganders here in our state.

I want to say thank you all in advance for leading on this package of bills by supporting this package.

2020 has truly been a challenging year and this week, Detroit, Wayne County, and the state lost a warrior of the people, a true servant of the people, in Jewel Ware. Five minutes is not enough time to really express what her life meant to the people.

Jewel was a mentor to many, myself, and she was a friend of mine. She helped me with a lot of political insight, so a lot of my political literacy comes from a lot of folks who helped me as I grew up, and although she didn稚 work directly under this dome, her influence was represented in both chambers by many who have. She was affectionately known as the dean of the commission and served as a Wayne County commissioner since 1994. Throughout her career, she was a 壮uper she-ro and an advocate for many but especially to the seniors and youth in our community. To see her impact, you had to actually be at one of the senior homes and watch how they lit up when she arrived or her famous tent bingo games where folks were bussed in from all around the community just to engage and laugh and fellowship with her. She was always serious when it came to getting seniors and the people services ensuring that the city and county were held accountable to their residents. I recently was on a stop prior to the election during this pandemic and she was especially cautious for health reasons謡e were all masked up and she was elbowing everybody傭ut when you saw her, you just wanted to hug her, folks wanted to hug her, and she was clear that she wasn稚 hugging anybody that day, except that Senator Bullock was the only person she was hugging葉hat was the last time I was with her.

I知 really here just to say that we miss her. Please keep her family and all those who she touched in your prayers.

 

A moment of silence was observed in memory of Jewel Ware, member of the Wayne County Commission.

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Hertel痴 statement is as follows:

The story of this bill starts with a boy named Wyatt and the tenacity of his mother. At 18-months-old, Wyatt was violently shaken by his father痴 new girlfriend. He had a fractured skull, a major brain bleed, suffered permanent brain damage, went blind in one eye, had broken ribs, and years later continues to have severe cognitive and developmental delays. The abuse was so severe, Wyatt almost died. But, because of amazing doctors and nurses and the tenacity to live謡hich I believe he got from his mother邑yatt was able to survive.

This abuse葉his attack幼ould absolutely have been prevented. The woman who did this to Wyatt had previously been convicted twice of abusing another child. Wyatt痴 mother Erica knew that something wasn稚 right with her ex-husband痴 new girlfriend, but continually hit roadblocks trying to find information about her. Erica repeatedly asked the Friend of the Court to intervene by requiring a background check or provide her the proper information so that she could run a check herself. Her pleas were refused. I can tell you that, again, if you致e met her, she is very tenacious. No stone was left unturned. But without a date of birth and location of her previous convictions, Erica had no way to access this life-saving information.

When you look up in the Gallery, Erica is joined by Christyne Kadlitz whose son Travis was also abused by Wyatt痴 abuser. Through their common tragedy, Erica and Christyne have become tireless advocates, good friends, and have been in this building now for three different session cycles at the end of lame duck trying to get this bill passed.

Any reasonable person should be able to find information to protect their loved ones against a convicted child abuser. This is information that is public knowledge擁t is publicly-available knowledge we just make it harder for people to get. All we池e trying to do is to make this information easy for a parent to get. This legislation does just that.

It痴 been a long journey for Wyatt, for Erica, for Christyne, and for Travis to ensure that their story is a catalyst for change. I urge you to vote 土es on this legislation to remove barriers for parents to protect their children from child abusers and to ensure that what happened to Wyatt does not happen to another child here in Michigan.

 

Senator Shirkey痴 statement is as follows:

With all that is going on in this world today, the year 2020 in particular, our attention and efforts are easily drawn to the stories that dominate the headlines while the stories of our citizens run the risk of getting lost in the noise. Many of you are aware of legislation sponsored by my good friend and colleague Senator Hertel that is referenced to be Wyatt痴 Law. It痴 sponsor has been a passionate and consistent advocate for passage of this bill to create an online child abuse database, but the true champions and activists behind this legislation are Erica Hammel, Wyatt痴 mom; and Christyne Kadlitz, representing her son Travis who experienced abuse as well.

As my friend just recounted, Ms. Hammel experienced a tragedy no other mother should endure. She suspected someone close to her child had been capable of violence but Ms. Hammel had no way to verify her intuition. The individual in question did indeed abuse Wyatt in a most horrendous way. The abuse the individual inflicted upon Ms. Hammel痴 son Wyatt was so severe, it will impact Wyatt痴 life for the rest of his life. But even more upsetting is that the individual has twice been convicted of child abuse in the past, something Ms. Hammel would have known because she would have followed her intuition if a law such as the one before us today had been in place.

There is no force greater溶o force more formidable熔n this earth than a mother acting in defense of her child. This database is the direct result of Ms. Hammel痴 work to ensure the experience of her family was a catalyst for change to help protect children into the future. It is our duty as legislators, as law enforcement workers, as moms, as dads, as grandparents, as aunts and uncles, and others to ensure that this database is a useful and used tool in preventing convicted child abusers from having the opportunity to harm more children. We ask that you join us in support of this bill and that you join us in recognizing Wyatt痴 mom, Erica Hammel, and Christyne Kadlitz who are in the north Gallery as champions for Wyatt and the children throughout Michigan from today and forward. I ask for your support.

The following message from the Governor was received on December 10, 2020, and read:

 

EXECUTIVE ORDER

No. 2020-193

 

Protect Michigan Commission

 

Department of Health and Human Services

 

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory disease that can result in serious illness or death. It is caused by a new strain of coronavirus not previously identified in humans and easily spread from person to person. COVID-19 has already taken the lives of more than 10,000 Michiganders and fundamentally disrupted our way of life.

But through tireless effort, a return to normal is in sight. An approved COVID-19 vaccine, once available, is our best hope for eliminating and eradicating this virus.

Scientists worldwide are working together to develop COVID-19 vaccines through a proven process involving extensive safety testing. In the United States, this process has produced safe and effective vaccines for the flu, polio, measles, mumps, and more. While the development process for the COVID-19 vaccine has been accelerated, no steps in that rigorous process have been omitted. As of the date of this order, two requests for emergency use authorization of COVID-19 vaccines are under review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The creation of a statewide Protect Michigan Commission will heighten awareness of the safety and effectiveness of an approved COVID-19 vaccine, educate the people of this state, and help protect the health and safety of all Michigan residents.

Section 1 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963 vests the executive power of the State of Michigan in the governor.

Section 8 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963 obligates the governor to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.

Acting under the Michigan Constitution of 1963 and Michigan law, I order the following:

1. Creation of the Protect Michigan Commission

(a) The Protect Michigan Commission (鼎ommission) is created as an advisory body within the Department of Health and Human Services (泥epartment).

(b) The Commission must consist of:

(1) The lieutenant governor;

(2) The chief medical executive,

(3) At least 50 members appointed by the governor representing various sectors and communities within this state and reflecting the diverse geographic, economic, racial, cultural, age, gender, and occupational composition of this state.

2. Charge to the Commission

(a) The Commission must act in an advisory capacity to the governor and must do the following:

(1) Provide public leadership to elevate and reinforce the importance of an approved COVID-19 vaccine;

(2) Identify barriers that may impede the acceptance of an approved COVID-19 vaccine by Michigan residents, which must include, but not be limited to, identifying areas or groups within this state that are likely to experience vaccine hesitancy;

(3) Support the development and implementation of an outreach action plan designed to overcome these barriers and encourage use of an approved COVID-19 vaccine;

(4) Coordinate with the Racial Disparities Task Force and other relevant task forces, committees and commissions working on similar issues and consider relevant recommendations;

(5) Provide input on, and assist in the distribution of, educational and promotional materials designed to heighten awareness of, and encourage use of an approved COVID-19 vaccine by Michigan residents;

(6) Identify opportunities to coordinate its efforts and resources with those of the various individuals and entities working on the federal, state, and local levels to ensure as widespread use as possible of an approved COVID-19 vaccine by Michigan痴 population; and

(7) Provide other advice and take other action as requested by the governor.

(b) The Commission must complete its work and submit a final report to the governor by December 31, 2021, including a brief summary of the efforts of this Commission and its conclusions. The Commission is dissolved on December 31, 2021.

3. Operations of the Commission

(a) The Department must assist the Commission in the performance of its duties and provide personnel to staff the counsel. Any budgeting, procurement, and related management functions must be performed under the direction and supervision of the director of the Department.

(b) The Commission must adopt procedures, consistent with this order and applicable law, governing its organization and operations.

(c) The Commission must comply with the Freedom of Information Act, 1976 PA 442, as amended, MCL 15.231 to 15.246.

(d) The governor must designate the chairperson and vice chairperson of the Commission.

(e) The governor may appoint one or more individuals to serve as honorary chairpersons of the Commission.

(f) The Commission must meet at the call of its chairperson and as otherwise provided in the procedures adopted by the Commission. The Commission must meet at least quarterly until December 31, 2021.

(g) The Commission may establish advisory workgroups, which may include Commission members, representatives of state departments or agencies, or members of the public as deemed necessary by the Commission to assist the Commission in performing its duties and responsibilities. The Commission may adopt, reject, or modify any recommendations proposed by an advisory workgroup.

(h) The Commission may, as appropriate, make inquiries, studies and investigations, hold hearings, and receive comments from the public. The Commission also may consult with outside experts to perform its duties, including experts in the private sector, organized labor, government agencies, and at institutions of higher education.

(i) The Commission may hire or retain contractors, sub-contractors, advisors, consultants, and agents, and may make and enter into contracts necessary or incidental to the exercise of the powers of the Commission and the performance of its duties as the director of the Department deems advisable and necessary, consistent with this order and applicable law, rules, and procedures, subject to available funding.

(j) The Commission may accept donations of labor, services, or other things of value from any public or private agency or person. Any donations must be received and used in accordance with law.

(k) Members of the Commission must not receive additional compensation for their participation. Members of the Commission may receive reimbursement for necessary travel and expenses consistent with applicable law, rules, and procedures, subject to available funding.

(l) Members of the Commission must refer all legal, legislative, and media contacts to the Department.

4. Implementation

Free access also must be given to any books, records, or documents in their custody relating to matters within the scope of inquiry, study, or review of the Commission, consistent with applicable law.

(b) This order is not intended to abate a proceeding commenced by, against, or before an officer or entity affected by this order. A proceeding may be maintained by, against, or before the successor of any officer or entity affected by this order.

(c) Nothing in this order should be construed to change the organization of the executive branch of state government or the assignment of functions among its units, in a manner requiring the force of law.

(d) If any portion of this order is found to be unenforceable, the rest of the order remains in effect.

(e) This order is effective upon filing.

Given under my hand and the great seal of the State of Michigan.

Protests

 

 

Senators Geiss, McMorrow, Hollier, Alexander, Bayer, Moss and Santana under their constitutional right of protest (Art. 4, Sec. 18), protested against the passage of Senate Bill No. 1253.

Senators Geiss and McMorrow moved that the statements they made during the discussion of the bill be printed as their reasons for voting 渡o.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Geiss statement is as follows:

I rise today to give my 渡o vote explanation for Senate Bill No. 1253, a bill to institute time limits on epidemic orders issued by the Department of Health and Human Services and only allowing for extensions if the Legislature approves them via resolution of both chambers.

As a reminder預nd listen, this is important預rticle IV, section 51 of the Michigan State Constitution of 1963蓉nder public health and general welfare擁s clear on our duties regarding such matters. It states, 甜t]he public health and general welfare of the people of the state are hereby declared to be matters of primary public concern. The legislature shall pass suitable laws for the protection and promotion of the public health.

This bill is the exact opposite of that provision in the State Constitution. And heretofore as it relates specifically to the current health crisis葉he COVID-19 pandemic葉his body溶ay, this entire Legislature揺as been derelict in its duties to 菟ass suitable laws for the protection and promotion of the public health as the second sentence of article IV, section 51 reads. Addressing the pandemic is indeed 殿 matter of primary public concern, as the first sentence reads in part.

Since we have failed miserably at this constitutional duty, thank goodness someone擁n the name of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services揺as it handled. For us to stymie and prohibit the primary department also responsible for promoting and protecting public health from not only a pandemic but clearly from us and the legislative majority痴 lackadaisical attitude to a pandemic that is ever-present and continues to rage on is not just irresponsible擁t痴 absurd.

We owe the people of the state of Michigan better than this bill, which does little more than bog down a process where swift, intelligent actions grounded in science are warranted. I implore members of this chamber to join me in voting 渡o.

 

Senator McMorrow痴 statement, in which Senators Hollier, Alexander, Bayer, Moss and Santana concurred, is as follows:

Yesterday I read a story in the Free Press that knocked me completely on my輸 33-year-old woman who was eight months pregnant got sick with COVID-19. She was induced and gave birth to a healthy baby boy last week and she never got to hold him. Her brother said she had a normal labor. She gave birth to her son, but didn稚 get to hold him because right after she gave birth, that痴 when they put in the tube and from there she started declining. Thirty-three years old with no underlying health conditions. I am 34 years old and just shy of eight months pregnant. I read this story and I went home and I told my husband about it and he said he had also read it and was afraid to send it to me.

I don稚 want to be a broken record here but half of this Legislature is currently not here, shut down from doing its work, because this Legislature has failed to even get its own house in order. We have double the rate of positive cases of COVID-19 in this Legislature than the rest of the state and I introduced a resolution 230 days ago to allow contingency plans for the Legislature to meet remotely to continue its work. Two hundred and thirty days, but this bill and this Legislature has the gall to ask and demand in statute that public health experts come to this Legislature which hasn稚 done anything in 230 days after only 28 days to ask for permission to do their duty to protect public health.

We are seeing now that the efforts that MDHHS has made over the past few weeks are working幼ase rates are coming back down預nd again I stand up here and repeat that it is our duty to listen to public health experts and do what we need to do to ensure that people are not forced to choose between their life and their livelihood. It is our duty to step up and make sure people can afford to do the things that public health experts are saying that we need to do just for the next few months to get through until there are widely-available vaccines because help is on the way.

I致e really struggled with this story for the past few days. We keep hearing that this is something we just need to accept葉hat it is what it is, that Mother Nature wins預nd I don稚 know about everybody else in this room but I refuse to accept that. I refuse to accept that it痴 OK for a 33-year-old, healthy woman on the verge of delivering a child to die unnecessarily. I urge a 渡o vote on this bill.

Senators Ananich, Brinks, McBroom, Geiss, Hertel and Theis asked and were granted unanimous consent to make statements and moved that the statements be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Ananich痴 statement is as follows:

We need to adopt my amendment because Senate Bill No. 1253 is, again, an unconstitutional legislative veto. Our Constitution is very clear預ll legislation must be by bill and must be presented to the Governor to become a law. Instead, this bill would allow legislators to exercise authority reserved to the executive branch and allow enactment of legislation without passing a bill into law. We frequently hear a lot of talk about upholding the Constitution in this body and so it痴 interesting that this bill is going against the separation of powers in the Constitution.

 

Senator Brinks statement is as follows:

My amendment to Senate Bill No. 1253 is quite simple. It would require individuals to wear a face mask in indoor public places, outdoors where social distancing protocols cannot be properly adhered to, and while using public transportation or private car service. This change will ensure that we are listening to our scientists, epidemiologists, and other public health experts by using the best tool we have to mitigate the spread of the virus. Leaders in this Legislature have repeatedly stated that they wanted more of a say in response to the pandemic. Yet nearly nine months later, we have yet to see a concrete and comprehensive plan or corresponding legislation to adequately protect public health and ultimately beat this virus.

Colleagues, we have found ways to work together on some COVID-19 measures and we can, and must, do so again. We have worked together to give businesses support to retain their employees, to get them the proper PPE and testing, to keep their staff and customers safe, and we have gone to great lengths to provide grants and loans to businesses so that livelihoods could be maintained and preserved. We致e worked together to extend unemployment benefits, although those too are set to run out, as I am sure you are all aware. Nobody is questioning that those things are all important. Of course they are.

But what has been sorely lacking from this Legislature are any real efforts to prevent and limit the spread of this virus, to either support the Governor痴 efforts or to come up with another plan that sufficiently protects the health and economic well-being of Michiganders. Our health care professionals, our hospitals, and our public health experts have been pleading with us to require these simple measures to save lives. Our schools, our businesses, and those made vulnerable by health conditions need us to do these simple things. Wear masks, maintain proper social distance, wash our hands, and limit contact with people outside our households. These, my friends, are what will allow us to keep our schools and business open, to be able to visit loved ones again, to sustain our economy, and get through this time before a vaccine is available with as little damage as possible. Yet these simple things seem to have been derailed by those who would rather make this a political fight and refuse to acknowledge that this is a public health crisis.

We all know that this virus does not discriminate based on party affiliation or politics. And today, I am asking you to take what should be an easy vote, to put good public health policy before party and to put people lives before politics. This is an opportunity for us to come together again and save lives by fighting this virus, not each other. I hope you will join me in support of this amendment today.

 

Senator McBroom痴 first statement is as follows:

Well first off, I知 glad to hear that we have actually have been voting on COVID policy over the last several weeks and months, it痴 nice to hear that acknowledged. But here we go again with the pot calling the kettle black. Oh my goodness, 禅his amendment that I知 introducing is completely devoid of politics, it痴 just good public policy. There痴 no politics here, nothing to see folks, just pure good public policy, no politics. Yet there痴 no commitment here that if we adopt this really outstanding good public policy amendment that the remainder of the bill that was just derided a few minutes ago as unconstitutional, will receive any support; because that part is all about politics. Mr. President, politics is a natural part of this process, it is not something that we avoid, it痴 the reality. For one side to claim that the other side is all of the politics and we池e none of the politics is a complete mischaracterization of politics itself. This amendment whether we want to argue the merits or not of the policy itself presented this way, is certainly not devoid of politics. Without a commitment to support the rest of the policy, which would put the Legislature into at least a position where we are no longer completely emasculated by the administration in the determination of policy itself regarding this problem we池e facing is just politics. I encourage a 渡o vote on this and support for the final bill.

 

Senator McBroom痴 second statement is as follows:

Mr. President, I知 really pleased by the previous speaker痴 acknowledgement that the Legislature has a constitutional obligation to pass laws in regard to the health and welfare of the people of this state. I wish they would also look to see that the powers of the state are vested into a House and a Senate, powers that we have to pass legislation that have been thoroughly abrogated by the current administration, appallingly abrogated.

The very problem that this legislation seeks to address is that abrogation, is that emasculation, is that neutering that has happened to the Legislature. The previous speakers denounce what they see as a lack of action200-some days of lack of action here傭ut do nothing to address how powerless we actually are. Powerless to do anything, powerless to do our constitutional duty. They acknowledge that it痴 our job but they ignore that the actions they池e condoning妖one by the administration預re only allowed to be done by the administration because the Legislature passed laws allowing that. Some Legislature in the past said, 前h, no big deal. Let the Governor handle that. We値l never need to be involved again.

Well, that痴 where we池e at. That痴 why we池e trying to get involved. That痴 why we want to be part of the process. Meanwhile, I constantly hear, 践ow upsetting it is that there痴 such an uprising amongst the countryside and 鼠ack of civility and 疎nger and hostility and 創ot accepting responsibility and 創ot accepting that we池e trying to do what痴 best for you. We just care about you; we just want to save everybody痴 life. People are mad that, 践ow come these people out there, those hicks in the sticks, aren稚 paying attention to that. We care about them.

But we live in a society that is based on the consent of the governed, one that is built on a foundation that when we have disputes謡hen we don稚 know what we should do謡e don稚 just let one person make the decisions for us. We come here, we elect people to come here, and represent us and have the discussions, have the debate, have the votes, and let the majority opinion run the day. And you know what, the majority痴 not always right. Sometimes the majority痴 dead wrong and makes stupid decisions, and yet that痴 how it痴 supposed to be. We池e supposed to have that.

With the current administration痴 interpretation of laws葉hat this Legislature of the past said was OK謡e can稚 do that. Every time we try to edge in, veto. Not going to do it. Can稚 have that. I don稚 like it. We wonder why people are angry? Because they don稚 know whether they池e in the majority opinion or the minority opinion because they don稚 get a chance to voice their opinion. One person makes the decisions. Here痴 our chance to reassert some sort of opportunity for the real democratic process to work here, instead of one person.

Look, I知 OK with the 1976 law. I知 OK with what this says, look, there痴 emergencies happen. The Legislature can稚 get here within enough time. Things need to be done for that first month, but this has been ten blooming months and we still get left to the sideline. We get a little meeting once in a while卵oh, I heard what you had to say, thanks anyway苧it痴 revolting. It痴 appalling. We have a leader who has literally said, 選 will not give up any of my power. Is that what this nation is founded on容xecutives who refuse to give up power? That痴 not what I heard from George Washington. I ask for your support.

 

Senator Geiss statement is as follows:

I just want to comment on what our good friend from the 38th District said and reminds folks that this is not the forum or referendum for having an argument with the executive branch. Yes, we have had ten months to do something about the pandemic. Not a last gasp attempt at three days left in this legislative term, at least for this chamber, who knows what痴 going on across the hall. They池e not here because of COVID, because of our failed actions.

So I urge a 渡o vote on this because it is a half measure, it is a partial measure, and it doesn稚 give the 30 that is being utilized by the Department of Health and Human Services to address the pandemic in a scientific and real way. That is why I am urging a 渡o vote on this. You need to do sensible, science-based actions and listen to the experts in science and public health.

 

Senator McBroom痴 third statement is as follows:

Mr. President, I guess I知 just very puzzled as to how we can both be responsible enough to not come to the Legislature and stay home and at the same time be responsible enough to have been here sooner to have voted on stuff. It doesn稚 make any sense to me either. I mean, here we are. If this is not the time for a forum on executive power, I知 not sure when that time is. How can one say that now is not the time? Now is as good a time as any time should be to express the need for this body to assert itself into the process that it has been taken out of. Yes, we need to use science謡e need to have that傭ut it is also a society governed by the consent of the majority. Right now it痴 not.

 

Senator Hertel痴 statement is as follows:

With all due respect to the previous speaker, if anyone feels neutered in this body it痴 because they致e neutered themselves. For months now, what I have heard from the other side of the aisle is all the things that we池e not willing to do葉he Governor shouldn稚 do this, we shouldn稚 have a mask mandate, we shouldn稚 close down restaurants, we shouldn稚 do anything. When you have a list of things that you are willing to do to protect the public謡hen you have a list of policies that you are willing to put forward葉hen that is a reasonable discussion we can all have. I would be happy to sit down on any bill of that regard. But you have to actually be for something. Politics and governing is not about a list of complaints. It痴 not about standing up and telling us all the things you池e opposed to. At some point you have to put out a plan to actually protect people.

My family has served combined about 100 years of service to the state and almost all of it has been in the Michigan Legislature and I am a firm believer in the supremacy of the legislative branch, but we have to act like actual leaders in order to actually make that work. We have to have a plan and work together to actually solve it together. Again, all I致e heard for the last eight months is opposition. When people want to put out a plan遥ou know, we just had a vote on mask mandates that was a partisan vote. Stop telling us what you池e against and tell us what you池e for. We壇 be happy to have that conversation.

 

Senator Theis statement is as follows:

Reading from the Michigan Supreme Court opinion, 甜t]hese provisions impose nothing more than a durational limitation on the Governor痴 authority. The Governor痴 declaration of a state of emergency or state of disaster may only endure for 28 days absent legislative approval of an extension. So, if the Legislature does nothing, as it did here, the Governor is obligated to terminate the state of emergency or state of disaster after 28 days. A durational limitation is not the equivalent of a veto.

The Michigan Supreme Court could not have been more clear when it ruled that Governor Whitmer was acting unconstitutionally as she went it alone on COVID-19. Instead of working with the Legislature and giving us the science, the Governor has tapped the unelected bureaucrats who work for her in the state department to issue more confusing and contradictory orders. Unelected and unaccountable DHHS bureaucrats should not in perpetuity be able to issue freedom-restricting and business-killing emergency orders that disrupt lives and threaten livelihoods. The Supreme Court made it clear that even after declaring an emergency, Governor Whitmer does not have the right to extend such orders without legislative approval and neither should her employee預n attorney, not a doctor由obert Gordon.

Senate Bill No. 1253 will ensure the people have a say in the matter by limiting emergency orders issued by DHHS for 28 days and require that any extension of such orders receive legislative approval before taking effect just like what is required of the Governor. When the Court ruled against the Governor, it clearly said she should work with the Legislature to combat the virus. We would love to. Like the Court, the people we represent know that overcoming emergencies takes teamwork and they want their voices heard.

I urge you to support this bill because as one we should be facing this together, and this bill will help to make sure that we do.

Senator Chang痴 statement is as follows:

Thank you for my colleagues for bringing this bill up for a vote today. We are the Great Lakes State, surrounded by fresh water. Every person, regardless of how much they have their bank account, must have access to clean water to drink and to wash their hands, especially during a pandemic. Washing your hands with soap and water is one of the most basic steps people can take to reduce the chance that they become infected and to slow the spread of the virus. Addressing water shutoffs is a public health issue, an economic security issue, and a moral issue. Data from the state shows that over 317, 000 Michigan households were behind in their water bills during the pandemic, and I can only imagine, with all our families continuing to struggle financially, that the numbers have gone up. These households are in little villages, suburban towns, and big cities all across our state. This week, my city of Detroit took a historic step on water shutoffs. I am relieved and happy for my Detroit residents, but until Senate Bill No. 241 is signed into law, more than 200,000 other Michigan households in your districts outside Detroit would be vulnerable. This bill will place into statute the Governor痴 Executive Order No. 2020-144 and ensure that no Michigander has their water shutoff during the pandemic, with a March 31 sunset, and providers will continue to restore water if they identify households who were shut off and they will report critical data to our state.

As our residents continue to face unprecedented challenges during the pandemic, we must make sure they have access to the most basic thing that we need to live-water. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to the many water warriors who have worked so hard over the years, fighting for our residents in need and bringing them water. And, thank you to the impressive coalition of water providers, environmental advocates, faith leaders, social workers, nurses, civil rights groups, and more who came together on this issue. I will always be grateful. Colleagues, I urge your support for Senate Bill No. 241.

 

 

The following bill was read a third time:

Senate Bill No. 604, entitled

Statements

 

 

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Moss statement is as follows:

Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah. And, it痴 been a lame duck tradition of sorts to pause during session to light the small menorah on the front lawn of the Capitol. Unfortunately, we can稚 this year due to the pandemic and the inability to set it up every morning and take it down every night. We also typically would gather in Campus Martius in Detroit tonight to light the thirty-foot menorah there and celebrate the Festival of Lights as a Jewish community. Instead, a virtual 閃enorah in the D has been streaming tonight. I致e been watching it from my desk on the Senate floor. Five hundred-plus people have joined on to watch it take place and celebrate this holiday distantly, responsibly, and safely. Hanukkah is the story of the liberation of the temple in Jerusalem by Judah and the Maccabees. And when they attempted to light the menorah, only one cup of oil could be found to light it for just one day, but the light of the menorah endured for not just for one day, but eight days. What a relevant story to reflect upon today. Just when we think sometimes during this year that we were down to our last cup of oil, whatever that might mean to you, we致e endured and endured and endured. So, as we celebrate the Festival of Lights, I wish you nothing but light as we go forward here for the rest of the year and into the holiday season.

 

Senator Ananich痴 statement is as follows:

I was going to say that I do not do this very much but I知 not sure if I致e ever done this before. I rarely talk about myself or my personal life. Sometimes I do individually, but rarely from this podium. When I was a young child my mom was diagnosed with cancer and unfortunately, at a young age, she passed. What happens often or at least in my case fortunately, a number of other mothers wrapped their arms around me and became like second mothers. Growing up I had a core group of very good friends that I壇 met when I was very young, many before elementary school. As it often happens in life, some of us stayed and some of us went other places. Many of you probably know the experience when you know someone for most of your life and you may not talk to them for a period of time, but when you see them you connect as if you never left, right? Well, when I was diagnosed and was dealing with COVID much like many of you did, which I deeply appreciate and hopefully have told you all, my good friend George Ghattas宥eorgie when we were growing up羊eached out and checked on me a number of times. We connected like we always did, as if it had never stopped. As I was walking my dog, like I致e talked to many of you as I walk my dog at night after I致e finished with my phone calls, I checked on him, and he unfortunately told me that his mom had also contracted the virus and that she was in the hospital on a ventilator. I checked in on them, they thought she was doing better, they got a really good report on an X-ray of her lungs. I checked on them again, and she痴 doing better. All she needs is time.

Unfortunately on Monday, she優iane Ghattas用assed away. Now she was also my art teacher. If you致e seen any of my drawings, that痴 not her fault, but she was a tremendous artist and a really good teacher. She touched my life as a teacher in elementary school and as a second mother. One of her parting phrases to family and friends, and I am reading it out of the obituary, but I don稚 need to because she said it to me so many times, 敵od bless you and keep you safe. She always meant it, you could just tell from the way she hugged you and put her arms around you. I don稚 get up here very often and do memorials or talk about things, I just deal with them as many people do, privately.

But when someone touches your life like that and touches the life of so many other people預nd because obviously the funeral will be very private葉hey asked me to go but so many people that she taught, or she got to know from church or other things won稚 be able to go, I thought it fitting to say some kind words about her here. Because we have become somewhat of a work family I thought I should share a part of my other family with you. She was married to her husband Elie for 46 years and they were that epitome of a couple that you could tell every single day was better than the one before. Their son Georgie and I grew up together. He was a groomsman in my wedding. His brother Joey, or Joe now, still lives here in Michigan. Georgie lives in Chicago. Thank God they were able to spend so many summers together in Lake Leelanau, in Wayne痴 district, and had such close family and friends with them all of the time. Obviously I wish she壇 had more time on this earth, but the time she had was very special and it was a life well lived. Because I didn稚 get to tell her this, I just hope謡ell I am not sure it helps anyone else, but talking about it comforts me and sometimes that痴 important.

So thank you for allowing me to talk to you for a minute, allowing me to express my sadness and my positive memories about a really special woman. Thank you, God bless you, and I hope you have a good weekend.

 

Senator Irwin痴 statement is as follows:

Today I just really briefly want to rise to thank you, my colleagues. Today we passed two important measures that will help our people.

I致e asked at this podium several times over the summer and the fall, for UIA extensions and enhancements in the payments that our unemployed workers get and today by passing legislation, we致e used our power for good. We致e extended UIA payments for families and people that are hurting in this pandemic. It痴 not enough, but it痴 going to make this winter a little easier for many of our residents and their families and children who are going to face this season wanting, so I thank you for that.

I also thank you for passing protections against water shutoffs. This is essential during the pandemic and something that many of us have been asking for many months.

I just want to rise to thank my colleagues for the bipartisan support for these important COVID relief measures. We have power in this Legislature, we can come together to use it for good and in those ways we did so today.
