O誰eal, Whitsett, Hope, Breen, Brixie, Scott, Cavanagh, Hertel, Brenda Carter, Manoogian, Young, Aiyash, Camilleri, Hammoud, Cherry, Sneller, Bolden, Anthony, Cynthia Johnson, Brabec, Witwer, Neeley, Yancey, Sowerby, Clemente, Rabhi, Garza, Haadsma, Puri, Rogers and Sabo offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 28.

A resolution to declare February 2021 as Black History Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The history of the United States is rich with inspirational stories of great individuals whose actions, words, and achievements have united Americans and contributed to the success and prosperity of the United States; and

Whereas, Among those Americans who have enriched our society are the members of the Black community, individuals whose accomplishments have contributed to every endeavor throughout the history of our nation and this state and who have been steadfast in their commitment to promoting equality and justice for all; and

Whereas, In August 1619, the first documented Africans arrived in the English colony of Virginia. The group, recorded upon arrival as 20 and Odd Negroes, was part of a larger group of West Africans enslaved by Portuguese slave traders. They were on their way to Veracruz aboard a Portuguese ship when they were captured off the coast of Mexico by an English warship and transported to Virginia, where they were put ashore at what is now Hampton, Virginia, and sold as involuntary laborers or indentured servants; and

Whereas, The historic arrival of the group of 20 and Odd Negroes marked the beginning of the trend in colonial America where people of Africa were kidnapped from their homeland and transplanted to a foreign land, where they were condemned to a lifetime of slavery and racial injustices; and

Whereas, During the course of the slave trade, an estimated 50 million African men, women, and children were lost to their native continent, though only about 15 million arrived safely to a new home. The others lost their lives on African soil or along the Guinea coast, or finally in holds on the ships during the dreaded Middle Passage across the Atlantic Ocean; and

Whereas, In spite of the African slave trade, and in the face of injustices and inequalities, including lynch mobs, segregation, and the denial of the basic and fundamental rights of citizenship, Black Americans continued to move forward in society; and

Whereas, In 2021, the vestiges of those injustices and inequalities remain evident in the society of the United States; and

Whereas, From the earliest days of the United States, the course of its history has been greatly influenced by Black heroes and pioneers in many diverse areas, including science, medicine, business, education, government, law, industry, and social leadership; and

Whereas, many Black Americans lived, toiled, and died in obscurity, never achieving the recognition they deserved, and yet paved the way for future generations to succeed; and

Whereas, Black Americans have been great inventors, inventing and improving on innovations such as the air-conditioning unit, almanac, automatic gearshift, blood plasma bag, clothes dryer, doorknob, doorstop, electric lamp bulb, elevator, fire escape ladder, fountain pen, gas mask, golf tee, horseshoe, lantern, lawnmower, lawn sprinkler, lock, lubricating cup, refrigerating apparatus, spark plug, stethoscope, telephone transmitter, thermostat control, traffic signal, and typewriter; and

Whereas, The history of Blacks in America now includes the election and re-election of the first Black President of the United States and now the first Black Vice-President of the United States; and

Whereas, Dr. Carter Godwin Woodson, the distinguished Black author, editor, publisher, and historian who is known as the 擢ather of Black History, founded Negro History Week in 1926, which became Black History Month in 1976, celebrated during the month of February, with the intent to encourage further research and publications regarding the untold stories of Black heritage; and

Whereas, Dr. Woodson stated, 展e have a wonderful history behind usif you are unable to demonstrate to the world that you have this record, the world will say to you, 塑ou are not worthy to enjoy the blessings of democracy or anything else.樗; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare February 2021 as Black History Month in the state of Michigan. We urge all citizens to join in celebrating the achievements and contributions of Black Americans that have helped create the legacy of this great country and encourages the people of Michigan to create equity and equality for education, economics, and social justice.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Reps. Martin, Garza, Green, Haadsma, Sabo and Witwer offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 29.

A resolution to declare February 2021 as Career and Technical Education Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, A competitive economy requires workers who are prepared for skilled professions; and

Whereas, Career and technical education (CTE) training matches employability skills with workforce demand and provides relevant academic and technical coursework leading to industry-recognized credentials for secondary, post-secondary, and adult learners; and

Whereas, CTE ensures that competitive and skilled workers are ready, willing, and capable of holding jobs in high-wage, high-skill, and in-demand career fields such as science, technology, engineering, mathematics, nursing, allied health, construction, information technology, energy sustainability, and many other career fields that are vital in keeping Michigan competitive in our global economy; and

Whereas, Investing in CTE training for Michigan schools helps meet the very real and immediate challenges of economic development, student achievement, and competitiveness; and

Whereas, Providing real-world training to Michigan students during their secondary education gives them experience in multiple career field opportunities, and

Whereas, Over 529,000 Michigan job openings are projected annually through the year 2028, with a current average income of $48,545 per year for skilled trades jobs that do not require a bachelor痴 degree yet increasingly require some level of postsecondary education; and

Whereas, Over 97,000 Michigan high school students participated in CTE during the 2019-2020 school year, and more than 95% of Michigan students who focused their education in CTE go on to participate in postsecondary educational opportunities, seek further advanced career and technical education training, volunteer for military service, or find employment within a year of graduation; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare February 2021 as Career and Technical Education Month in the state of Michigan. We urge continued awareness of career and technical training for the students of Michigan to ensure the sustainability of Michigan痴 workforce for the years to come; and be it further

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be transmitted to the Governor of Michigan and the State Superintendent.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Messages from the Governor

 

 

The following message from the Governor was received February 4, 2021 and read:

 

EXECUTIVE ORDER

No. 2021-2

 

COVID-19 Student Recovery Advisory Council

 

Executive Office of the Governor

 

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 is easily spread from person to person. COVID-19 has already taken the lives of more than 14,000 Michiganders and fundamentally disrupted our way of life. Education is no exception.

Michigan痴 educators have worked tirelessly to teach our children during this pandemic under the most stressful conditions, and we owe them our most sincere gratitude. Despite these heroic efforts, we know that many students have struggled with remote learning, resulting in significant learning loss. Schools also provide other services that students need to thrive including reliable access to the internet, nutritious meals, and mental health supports. COVID-19 has exacerbated inequities in our education system, and we know more work is needed to address the significant impact COVID-19 has had on our children.

On June 12, 2020, I launched the Return to School Advisory Council which developed a framework to inform K-12 districts planning for the 2020-2021 school year. On December 11, 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization for the first COVID-19 vaccine and on January 11, 2021 the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services prioritized educators for vaccine distribution in Michigan. With a return to normal in sight, we must plan for recovery.

Building on the success of the Return to School Advisory Council, the formation of an advisory group focused on student recovery will provide valuable guidance and recommendations and ensure Michigan has the tools and resources to get students back on track.

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 places each principal department of state government under the supervision of the governor unless otherwise provided.

Section 8 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963 also 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. Creating the Student Recovery Advisory Council

(a) The Student Recovery Advisory Council (鼎ouncil) is created as an advisory body within the Department of Technology, Management, and Budget (泥epartment).

(b) The Council must consist of 29 members. These members must be appointed by the governor and reflect the diverse geographic and demographic composition of this state. Membership must include school leaders, educators, individuals with expertise in public health, pediatrics, mental health, and community members (including at least one parent and one student).

(c) A vacancy on the Council must be filled in the same manner as the original appointment.

(d) The Governor must name a chairperson of the Council.

2. Charge to the Council

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

(1) Develop and submit recommendations to the governor, state superintendent, and state budget director regarding student recovery.

(3) Recommend actions to develop and improve systems for mental and physical health for students impacted by COVID-19.

(4) Recommend actions to develop and improve systems to support high school students transitioning into postsecondary education.

(5) Recommend actions to develop and improve out-of-school time supports, including, but not limited to, summer school, before and after school programs, and extended school years.

(6) Assemble critical voices from the education and public health communities to assist in identifying key challenges students face due to the pandemic.

(7) Provide other information or advice or take other actions as requested by the governor.

(b) The Council must report regularly to the governor on its activities and make ongoing recommendations.

(c) The Council will dissolve on December 31, 2021, or such other time as the governor directs.

3. Operations of the Council

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

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

(c) The Council must meet at least monthly.

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

(e) The Council may select from among its members a vice chairperson.

(f) The Council may select from among its members a secretary. Council staff must assist the secretary with recordkeeping responsibilities.

(g) The Council must meet at the call of its chairperson and as otherwise provided in the procedures adopted by the Council.

(h) A majority of the members of the Council serving constitutes a quorum for the transaction of the business of the Council. The Council must act by a majority vote of its members.

(i) The Council may establish advisory workgroups composed of individuals or entities participating in Council痴 activities or other members of the public as deemed necessary by the Council to assist it in performing its duties and responsibilities. The Council may adopt, reject, or modify any recommendations proposed by an advisory workgroup.

(j) The Council may, as appropriate, make inquiries, studies, and investigations, hold hearings, and receive comments from the public. The Council also may consult with outside experts to perform its duties, including experts in the private sector, educators, public health experts, community leaders, government agencies, and institutions of higher education.

(k) The Council 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 Council and the performance of its duties as the Department deems advisable and necessary, consistent with this order and applicable law, rules, and procedures, subject to available funding.

(l) The Council 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.

(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.
