Help us, Father, to remember that we work for You and that You will judge the work we do. Father, we pray for those we love at home, that You would protect them and keep them safe, and that You would help us to serve You with honor and serve the people of this state with honor.

I pray these things in Jesus name. Amen.

Resolutions

 

 

Senators Schmidt, Horn, Hollier, Huizenga, Daley, Bizon, Runestad, Wojno, Alexander, Irwin, McMorrow, Bayer, VanderWall, Polehanki, Nesbitt, Zorn, Moss, Hertel, Brinks, McCann, Outman, Johnson, Bullock, Barrett, McBroom, MacDonald, Wozniak, Stamas, Chang and Victory offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 138.

A resolution to recognize May 11, 2022, as Michigan Rail Day.

Whereas, National Rail Day is celebrated in May to commemorate the completion of America痴 first transcontinental railroad on May 11, 1869; and

Whereas, Michigan is fortunate to have 3,465 freight rail miles operated by 29 freight carriers and Amtrak passenger service; and

Whereas, Railroads are a safe way to move freight and are working to improve infrastructure and equipment safety, reduce human error, and protect the rail network every day; and

Whereas, Technology including smart sensors, big data, and drones are used throughout the nearly 140,000 mile national rail network, while also ensuring infrastructure and equipment safety; and

Whereas, Between 2000 and 2021, train accidents were down 33 percent and between 2000 and 2020, the hazmat accident rate was down 60 percent. In 2020, the rail employee injury rate was at an all-time low; and

Whereas, Moving freight by rail prevents 6.97 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions, the equivalent of planting 105.6 million trees; and

Whereas, Railroads help preserve infrastructure and aid in cutting congestion. Freight railroads take 4.7 million truckloads off Michigan roads annually; and

Whereas, From the auto industry and other manufacturers to mining and agriculture, Michigan痴 productive freight rail network provides key connections to keep our state痴 economy vibrant; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That the members of this legislative body recognize May 11, 2022, as Michigan Rail Day; and be it further

Resolved, That we recognize and celebrate the pivotal role that a robust freight railroad and passenger system is to the residents of the Great Lakes State.

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

Senator Lauwers moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The resolution was adopted.

Senator Lauwers was named co-sponsor of the resolution.

 

 

Senators VanderWall, McBroom, Daley, Barrett, Bizon, Victory, Horn, Wozniak, Lauwers, MacDonald, Huizenga, Wojno, Bullock and Schmidt offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 139.

A resolution to urge Congress to pass legislation that would allow farmers, along with coalitions and trade associations representing farmers, to petition the U.S. International Trade Commission to temporarily waive tariffs on imports of fertilizer and fertilizer ingredients imported from Morocco.

Whereas, Michigan痴 agricultural industry is vitally important to the state economy. As our nation痴 second most diverse agricultural system, it contributes more than $104.7 billion in economic activity annually to the state. More than 800,000 people work in Michigan痴 agricultural industry, and care for nearly 10 million acres of land; and

Whereas, Fertilizer is a critical agricultural input that is utilized by farmers to provide nutrients to their land and maximize the productivity of their farms. Michigan farmers require access to fertilizers in order to nourish their land and maintain production levels; and

Whereas, The International Trade Commission (ITC) determined that the import of foreign fertilizers injured U.S. manufacturers. As a result, the ITC decided to impose a nineteen percent tariff on imports of fertilizer and fertilizer ingredients from Morocco. The tariffs, which were implemented in early 2021, significantly increased fertilizer prices; and

Whereas, Fertilizer prices in the United States are now at an all-time high. Fertilizer prices had already been increasing due to factors such as rising costs of raw materials and increased demand for inputs. With these tariffs in effect, farmers who were already struggling to compete with rising costs are now faced with an increased financial burden and uncertain future; and

Whereas, Meanwhile, the U.S. continues to rely on imported fertilizer and fertilizer ingredients. For example, more than 95 percent of potash, one of the key components found in fertilizer, is currently imported from outside the U.S.; and

Whereas, Michigan contains the only commercial deposit of natural potash in the U.S. and the highest quality natural potash deposit in the world. The Michigan Legislature recently provided an investment of $50 million to establish potash extraction infrastructure in Michigan. Once completed, this project will help increase domestic supply of this critical mineral, thereby strengthening and securing the supply of high-quality potash for Michigan farmers, in addition to providing hundreds of full-time jobs and boosting Michigan痴 economy. This will be crucial for the Michigan agricultural industry, as significant supply shortages and skyrocketing costs continue to burden Michigan farmers; and

Whereas, Legislation has been introduced in Congress that would allow a process for individual farmers, along with coalitions and trade associations representing farmers, to petition the ITC to temporarily waive tariffs on imports of fertilizer and fertilizer ingredients. With the price of fertilizer on the rise, this would help alleviate costs for farmers, as Morocco is one of the top five exporters of fertilizer to the United States; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we urge Congress to pass legislation that would allow farmers, along with coalitions and trade associations representing farmers, to petition the ITC to temporarily waive tariffs on imports of fertilizer and fertilizer ingredients imported from Morocco; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

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

Senator Lauwers moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

Senator Lauwers moved that the resolution be referred to the Committee on Agriculture.

The motion prevailed.

 

Senator Hollier entered the Senate Chamber.

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Irwin痴 statement is as follows:

Literacy羊eading capably and without difficulty擁s essential to success in today痴 world, and that痴 why reading is one of the most fundamental skills that we seek to teach in our K-12 schools. But if you池e like me, you致e looked at our literacy scores, you致e compared them to other states and nations, and you致e found them lacking and you致e known that we have work to do. So, today I知 really happy that we池e coming together to do some of that work. For too many of our students, our current approach is lacking and is leaving them behind. That痴 because as many as one in five kids in our state experience characteristics of dyslexia. Too many of these kids are falling through the cracks and what the language in these bills will do today to help these students is to bring more phonetic awareness and more decoding skills into the general education classroom. These bills also piggyback on our existing read-by-grade-3 assessments to do a better job of identifying these kids who are struggling with decoding skills and to provide the training necessary, the training and professional development, both in our colleges and at the district level, to our educators to make sure they have the skills to identify and intervene on behalf of these young learners on their path toward literacy.

I ask for your support today in voting for these important bills to improve literacy and to focus on dyslexic students and students who are experiencing characteristics of dyslexia, and I really appreciate the opportunity that has been afforded to bring these bills up today and to work in a bipartisan manner to do something good to promote literacy here in the state of Michigan.

Senator Hertel痴 statement is as follows:

Colleagues, today is a sad day for those of us who have worked for the last two years with George Cook, the Governor痴 legislative affairs director. Today will be his last day on the floor of the Senate. George has worked through what I would say are probably two of the toughest years that any Governor has had to face, and certainly any legislative director has had to face, but he has done that with honesty, integrity, and he痴 one of those people who always keeps their word and serves the Governor well. He has gotten to work with great Senators like Senator Shirkey and Senator Ananich, and although he will not have those friends as he moves on, he will get to work with other greats like Tony the Tiger; Toucan Sam; and Snap, Crackle, and Pop as he heads over to Kellogg痴. We know that he痴 going to be gr-r-reat!

George, it痴 been an honor to work with you, we have all enjoyed our time serving with you, we thank you for your service to the people of Michigan, and we know that no matter what you池e working on in the future耀ugar content in cereal or God knows what is on the Kellogg痴 legislative agenda遥ou will always be a friend to those of us you served with. Thank you.

Senator Wojno痴 statement is as follows:

Today I want to take a moment to recognize senior action week and Older Michiganians Day. Senior action week spotlights critical areas impacting older adults here in Michigan. Many from our senior community are here in Lansing this week to meet with us who serve in the Legislature to discuss their concerns, challenges, and opportunities. We as elected officials can act by advocating for policies that strengthen home and community-based services, health care, food services, financial assistance, and more. Our seniors are a wealth of knowledge and a source of strength in our communities. We thank them for their time, dedication, and choice in making Michigan their home for many years and many more to come.
