Senator Jeremy Moss of the 7th District offered the following invocation:

May we see the day when war and bloodshed cease, when a great peace will embrace the whole world. Then nation will not threaten nation, and the human family will not again know war. For all who live on Earth shall realize we have not come into being to hate or to destroy. We have come into being to praise, to labor, and to love. Compassionate God, bless the leaders of all nations with the power of compassion. Fulfill the promise conveyed in Scripture: I will bring peace to the land, and you shall lie down and no one shall terrify you; I will rid the land of vicious beasts and it shall not be ravaged by war. Let justice and righteousness flow like a mighty stream. Let God痴 peace fill the earth as the waters fill the sea.

And let us say: Amen.

 

The President pro tempore, Senator Moss, led the members of the Senate in recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Runestad痴 statement is as follows:

This is a bill that I definitely do support, except I think it should be expanded to all citizens in the state of Michigan. Since I got elected, way back eight-and-a-half years ago, we have had constant calls from constituents who got bottled up in Treasury trying to get back their unclaimed property. Five years before I was elected to office, I was owed $800 from Chase Bank for an account that unfortunately Chase sent over to the state of Michigan. So I began the process five years before I was elected trying to get that money back.

They ran me through hoop, after hoop, after hoop, and had wanted me to produce some documents that didn稚 even exist and were not even pertinent to getting that money back. Then after I got in elective office for two years, I would be sending them stuff. I eventually had Treasury come in, explained everything, showed them all the documentation, they finally耀o that痴 what, 10 years or something after I began the process to get that money庸inally I got that $800 back. I think this is outrageous.

Treasury hangs onto that money with dear life. When somebody proves that they owe that money, and there痴 nobody else, there was nobody else conceivable that could have produced all the documentation I had, and they still wouldn稚 give me that money until I had to raise hell in my office. That shouldn稚 have to happen; that a person has to be in elective office to get back that money. Treasury should be on the job getting this money back to these people as fast as possible and it shouldn稚 just be veterans who are taken care of with this, but we should extend this to all citizens.

Mr. President, I must admit this is not an amendment I ever thought I壇 have to offer in this Legislature. As far as I知 aware, women耀pecifically mothers預re the only people who can breastfeed or pump milk. Yet, for some reason, this bill removes the words 努oman and 都he and changes these proper terms to 妬ndividual. My amendment will simply specify that this bill related to producing breast milk respectfully applies to women. Thank you, and I ask for your 土es vote.

 

Senator Irwin痴 statement is as follows:

I want to ask my colleagues to oppose this amendment because this legislation is about supporting moms and babies, not about some twisted culture war.

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Irwin痴 statement is as follows:

I rise to ask for your support of Senate Bill No. 410. About 25 years ago, this state adopted a law that protected the makers of pharmaceutical products from accountability. That law that we池e still living with today says that if the FDA approves a drug, residents in Michigan cannot sue for compensation if they are harmed or if a loved one is killed by those pharmaceutical products. This law broke down the tort system which is essential for accountability here in these United States and it left Michigan as the only state with blanket immunity for drug makers. We know that oftentimes adverse drug events hurt, maim, kill residents all over this country, but in Michigan, it痴 the only state where those residents and their families don稚 have access to the courts, don稚 have access to the justice system to seek accountability and compensation.

My proposal is that we repeal that unique law that has left Michigan residents out of millions of dollars in settlements, that we repeal this unique law that has also prevented the state itself from gaining compensation when drugs hurt or kill people as part of the Medicaid program, and it痴 going to be a positive thing for our residents when they have this access restored. It痴 going to be good for accountability, and it痴 going to put drug makers on notice that they can稚 continue to sell drugs in Michigan with blanket immunity, free from accountability.

Once again, I ask for your support for this important legislation. It痴 been a long time coming. I am just elated to be standing here on the floor finally to have a vote on a bill to repeal Michigan痴 unique policy that prevents our residents from seeking justice when they池e harmed.

 

Senator Runestad痴 statement is as follows:

I concur with my colleague from the 15th District. I remember reading many, many years ago that there was a lot of discussion about these opioid drugs and these pharmaceutical companies that produced them, and they unearthed a lot of e-mails between the different companies and between different departments of the companies that they absolutely knew these were addictive, but they buried that information. They did it FDA-approved and the whole FDA approval process is very often funded by the very pharmaceuticals that are getting FDA approval. This current immunity says that if it痴 FDA-approved, no matter what the hell happened, that these pharmaceuticals are immune from any wrongdoing. This reverses that and I support the bill.

 

By unanimous consent the Senate proceeded to the order of

Resolutions

 

 

Senator Huizenga offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 76.

A resolution to support Israel, the long-standing partner of the United States of America, and to clearly condemn the terrorist attacks carried out by Hamas against the Israeli people starting on Saturday, October 7, 2023.

Whereas, Beginning Saturday, October 7, 2023, Hamas terrorists launched unprovoked, cowardly, and heartless attacks against Israel particularly its civilians during major holiday festivities. These terrorists went house to house, slaughtering innocent men, women, and children in their own homes, and searching for civilians to murder, rape, and take hostage. They assaulted patrons of an all-night music festival in southern Israel, shooting individuals at point-blank range, looting their belongings, and abducting partygoers. They have kidnapped scores of women, children, and the elderly, including at least one Holocaust survivor. Hundreds have died as a result of these terrorist attacks, including at least eleven Americans and many of other nationalities; and

Whereas, The United States has a strong history of standing in support of Israel, its people, and its democratic and cultural values. The United States was the first country to recognize Israeli statehood in 1948, and the two nations have maintained close ties over the subsequent decades, especially concerning the security of the state of Israel. This stands in stark contrast to certain extremist regimes, which are providing financing and other support for the terrorist organization Hamas; and

Whereas, Michigan has significant ties to the Israeli and broader Jewish communities. According to recent census data, more than 2,500 Israelis live in Michigan, and it is estimated that the state痴 Jewish population is around 100,000; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we stand with the people of Israel and fully support Israel痴 sovereign right to defend itself with all power and all might, and to seek justice against these and future terrorist threats; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the United States Charg d誕ffaires for Israel, the President of the United States of America, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker Pro Tempore of the United States House of Representatives, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

Pursuant to rule 3.204, the resolution was referred to the Committee on Government Operations.

Senators Albert, Bellino, Bumstead, Daley, Damoose, Hauck, Hoitenga, Johnson, Lauwers, Nesbitt, Outman, Theis, Victory, Webber and Wojno were named co-sponsors of the resolution.

 

 

Senator Nesbitt offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 77.

A resolution to commemorate October 16-22, 2023, as Independent Retailers Week.

Whereas, Independent Retailers Week provides a time to celebrate the food, beverage, and petroleum retail industry and its dedication to the public in their delivery of services to our state; and

Whereas, The independent retail industry is comprised of grocers, specialty food markets, convenience stores, and pharmacies, along with many other businesses providing access to consumer goods and services in their communities; and

Whereas, This industry directly supports more than 158,000 employees in full and part-time positions throughout the state; and

Whereas, Businesses in the food, beverage, and petroleum retail industry contribute billions in taxes to state and local governments; and

Whereas, As we celebrate Independent Retailers Week in Michigan, we acknowledge the many contributions these businesses and their employees make to our state; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That the members of this legislative body commemorate October 16-22, 2023, as Independent Retailers Week.

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

Senator Singh moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The resolution was adopted.

Senators Lauwers and Santana were named co-sponsors of the resolution.

 

 

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Nesbitt痴 statement is as follows:

Throughout Michigan, both in small towns and big cities and in our rural areas, Michiganders enjoy the services and retail options provided by independent retailers. Whether it痴 grocery stores or specialty food markets, convenience stores, pharmacies, gas stations, or other retail businesses, these cornerstones of our communities help strengthen our economy and provide us access to the common amenities of everyday life. These retailers are also our friends and neighbors悠 think even a caucus member預nd those reliable individuals who know us by name, provide employment opportunities to those looking to put in a hard day痴 work, and support our local charitable organizations and school-related activities.

I hope you will join me in recognizing the important role they play in our great state, and support this resolution to establish this week as Independent Retailers Week in Michigan.

 

 

Senators Moss and Huizenga offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 78.

A resolution to condemn the terrorist attacks carried out by Hamas in Israel on October 7, 2023.

Whereas, Hamas, a United States-designated foreign terrorist organization, launched a heinous series of coordinated violent attacks by air, land, and sea in Israel on October 7, 2023. Thousands of rockets fired from Gaza fell on Israeli buildings indiscriminately, killing people in their homes and places of work. Armed terrorists on motorcycles engaged in a massive door-to-door slaughter of civilians. Hamas militants stormed Israeli beaches by motorboat. Paragliders descended upon a music festival, where Hamas terrorists mowed down hundreds of attendees with gunfire; and

Whereas, The tragic attack on October 7 left at least 1,400 dead and 3,400 injured, with many victims dehumanized and paraded on camera, their assailants recording their torture and murder. Nearly 200 people were taken captive, including babies and the elderly, whose conditions are still not known. Among the casualties are Americans, 31 killed and 13 missing, and many other foreign nationals; and

Whereas, More Jewish civilian lives were lost on October 7 than any single day since 1945. This attack was reminiscent of other instances when Jews have been persecuted throughout history, including the pogroms of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and events during the Holocaust; and

Whereas, Michiganders are impacted by the events of October 7, many with direct relations to the dead and wounded. This shared grief and pain must compel residents of our state to demonstrate support, compassion, and care for one another; and

Whereas, Hamas痴 tyranny does not represent the views or advance the aspirations of the many Palestinians who seek to live in dignity and peace in a region mired in conflict; and

Whereas, United States President Joe Biden has publicly stated that 努e can稚 lose sight of the fact that the overwhelming majority of Palestinians had nothing to do with Hamas and Hamas痴 appalling attacks, and they池e suffering as a result as well, and 的t痴 also a priority for me to urgently address the humanitarian crisis in Gaza. United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said 鍍he United States and Israel have agreed to develop a plan that will enable humanitarian aid from donor nations and multilateral organizations to reach civilians in Gaza and them alone including the possibility of creating areas to help keep civilians out of harm痴 way. It is critical that aid begin flowing into Gaza as soon as possible; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we condemn the terrorist attacks carried out by Hamas in Israel on October 7, 2023; and be it further

Resolved, That we affirm Israel痴 right to defend itself from Hamas and other terrorists, and to prevent future attacks; and be it further

Resolved, That we join the urgent call for Hamas to release those being held hostage; and be it further

Resolved, That we urge support for immediate access to refuge for innocent civilians in Gaza who need refuge and call on our federal government to work with our allies to provide humanitarian aid; and be it further

Resolved, That we affirm the dignity of all innocent civilians impacted, Israelis and Palestinians, and join the long-standing call for peace in the region; and be it further

Resolved, That during this time of international crisis, we stand with all Michiganders who have Israeli and Palestinian cultural, religious, and familial roots, and decry all antisemitism and Islamophobia in our districts, our state, and across the globe; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the United States Charg d誕ffaires for Israel, the President of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker Pro Tempore 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 Singh moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The resolution was adopted.

Senators Lauwers and Wojno were named co-sponsors of the resolution.
