Protests
 
 
Senators DeBeaussaert, Peters, Berryman, A. Smith, Conroy and Emmons, under their constitutional right of protest (Art. IV, Sec. 18), protested against the passage of Senate Bill No. 487 and moved that the statements they made during the discussion of the bill be printed as their reasons for voting "no."
The motion prevailed.
Senator DeBeaussaert's statement, in which Senators Peters, Berryman, A. Smith and Conroy concurred, is as follows:
Based on the conversations that we've heard here, I've just looked at the bill again and in the past I've supported efforts to try to protect the privacy rights of tenants' notice for inspections before they occur and things of that kind in past legislation. But it looks like this bill does something significantly different, and does, as I think that the first speaker, the Minority Floor Leader, suggested remove the requirement that inspections occur.
It says currently the enforcing agency shall inspect on a periodic basis; the new language says the enforcing agency may inspect on a periodic basis. That doesn't protect the rights of tenants to have a secure place to live if you remove the requirement that there be inspections of any kind. Based on my reading of that, I'm going to be voting against this bill as well.
Senator A. Smith's statement is as follows:
I rise to oppose the bill. As I look at my own District and the city of Ann Arbor, 56 percent of our housing is rental property. We have 24,000 rental units and 75,000 tenants. Our tenants move fairly frequently with the change in semester or the change in the academic year. Putting a requirement on the local unit of government to have to notify tenants where names and addresses are unknown because of the frequency of the tenants moving is creating a nearly impossible requirement on a local unit of government.
I think this is probably repeated in college towns throughout the state of Michigan. In any community that has a tremendous number of students running through, I think the need for a housing inspection is much greater and the frequency of every two to six years is too broad a length of time, too wide a length of time. I guess my other question has nothing relevant to do with this particular bill. But if you're willing to do a random sampling in the quality of code enforcement and code adherence in the tenant bill, are you also willing to do and commit to the random sampling in the census?
 
Senator Emmons' statement is as follows:
I voted "no" on Senate Bill No. 487 because I live in a community that has a number of student housing rentals. Some of those landlords are absentee landlords. Sometimes the students even have trouble with them. Our housing regulation has increased their enforcement of regulations, so that the housing is more safe. We have had, in Big Rapids, two students die in student housing fires and I believe it is very important that our inspection agencies should be able to go in at any time and check to make sure that unit is safe for the students. The students do not always know that. They may think their mess is bad, but dead is worse. So, I would hope that the House of Representatives will take a good look at this bill when it gets over there.

Protest
 
 
Senator A. Smith, under her constitutional right of protest (Art. IV, Sec. 18), protested against the passage of Senate Bill No. 513.
Senator A. Smith's statement is as follows:
By and large I agree with this legislation and I do not really have but one concern with it. My concern is that, the way the language is written, there is the potential that a prosecutor may decide to use the information that is forwarded to prosecute a parent rather than referring that individual to a substance abuse treatment program. I think that is, at least for the first time situation, the preferred method. For that reason I voted "no" on the bill.
 
Senator Byrum asked and was granted unanimous consent to make a statement and moved that the statement be printed in the Journal.
The motion prevailed.
Senator Byrum's statement is as follows:
I wanted to follow up with what my colleague, Senator Alma Wheeler Smith, said about the bill that we had just passed. I supported the legislation, however, I think we need to be very cautious in this body when we look at sanctions that may not work. Frequently our good intentions, embodied in public policy, may not have that impact or effect in practice. We need to be very cautious that we do not put in road blocks or reasons for women not to access prenatal care and work very closely with a health professional. We know that prenatal care has a dramatic impact on the health, viability and future of a newborn infant. We also know that the approach through that health care professional, whether it be a nurse midwife, an OB-GYN or family physician, probably has a more positive impact in trying to stop the behavior--whether it be alcohol or drug addiction. We just need to be very cautious that what we do does not have a negative impact. Because it is the newborn, their life, their quality of life and their future productivity, that we need to keep paramount in our minds.

Senate Resolution No. 73.
A resolution to congratulate the Detroit Red Wings for winning the Stanley Cup.
Whereas, It's about a community pulling together. It's about that community's passion for Red Wings hockey. It's about an excitement, energy and enthusiasm that runs through the veins of Hockeytown. It's about unity. It's about a team and their fans; and
Whereas, The Detroit Red Wings have been called a lot of things over the last 42 years by frustrated hockey fans and a cynical media. "Hopeless," "hapless" and "helpless" were words often used in the 1960s and the entire 1970s. Now, they can be called something else: STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS. This is the special moment Detroit fans have been waiting for for so long; and
Whereas, On June 7, 1997, the Detroit Red Wings won the Stanley Cup Championship. For the first time since 1955, the Red Wings held the Stanley Cup high into the air, while Detroit fans at the Joe Louis Arena, all over this Cup-crazy state and throughout the United States and Canada cheered mightily, many shedding tears of joy; and
Whereas, There are many things you have to admire about the Red Wings during this spectacular win. Two of the most important are the team's day-to-day focus and the willingness by the players to buy into the coaching system. The coaching staff has preached smart defense and aggressive forechecking, all with an emphasis on a team strength-- speed. May this event be an opportunity to gain insights into NHL of the past and present; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate, That the members of this legislative body hereby congratulate the Detroit Red Wings, the Stanley Cup Champions; and be it further
Resolved, That we congratulate and honor the Detroit Red Wings for a job well done. This is a win for the Detroit Red Wings that will never be forgotten; and be it further
Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be transmitted to the Detroit Red Wings and the coaching staff as a token of our congratulations.
Senators Schuette, Conroy, Young, Hoffman, Schwarz, Emmons, Stallings, Shugars and McManus were named co-sponsors of the resolution.
 
 
Senator Bullard offered the following resolution:
Senate Resolution No. 74.
A resolution honoring the 1997 Stanley Cup Champion, Detroit Red Wings.
Whereas, With their impressive speed and smothering defense, backed by superb goaltending, the Detroit Red Wings ended the NHL's longest Stanley Cup drought with an overwhelming sweep of the Philadelphia Flyers; and
Whereas, As one of the NHL's original six franchises, the Red Wings' hockey tradition is as long and storied as any in National Hockey League history; and
Whereas, The last time the Red Wings hoisted the Stanley Cup, players didn't wear helmets, goalies didn't wear masks and they skated at the Olympia, the Old Red Barn on Grand River Avenue; and
Whereas, A journey that has seen the Red Wings go from the highs of winning the President's Trophy as the NHL's best regular season team to the heartbreaking loss to the New Jersey Devils in the 1995 Stanley Cup Finals. This is a team that has put aside the individual Olympic Gold medals and world championships, as well as scoring titles and all-star appearances, for the sake of one shimmering silver goal--the return of Lord Stanley's Cup to the city of Detroit, Hockeytown; and
Whereas, In truly memorable playoff series against the St. Louis Blues, Anaheim Mighty Ducks and bitter rival Colorado Avalanche, the Detroit Red Wings displayed remarkable grit, discipline and skill in reaching the Stanley Cup Finals; and
Whereas, Forty-two years of frustration and disappointment exploded off the Detroit bench, as the Red Wings burst onto the ice in celebration after sweeping the Philadelphia Flyers in the Stanley Cup Final. Their shared goal complete, the Red Wings could now bask in the triumph and celebration of Detroit's first Stanley Cup victory since 1955, under the fireworks and confetti of the Joe Louis Arena, with all the long-suffering fans; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate, That we congratulate the 1997 NHL Stanley Cup Champion, Detroit Red Wings; and be it further
Resolved that a copy of this resolution be transmitted to the finest owners in the NHL, Mike and Marian Ilitch; Coach and Director of Player Personnel, Scotty Bowman; his entire coaching staff and the players: Captain Steve Yzerman, Sergei Fedorov, Brendan Shanahan, Mike Vernon, Chris Osgood, Kevin Hodson, Slava Fetisov, Larry Murphy, Bob Rouse, Nicklas Lidstrom, Vladimir Konstantinov, Jamie Pushor, Aaron Ward, Mathieu Dandenault, Slava Kozlov, Igor Larionov, Martin LaPointe, Kris Draper, Doug Brown, Kirk Maltby, Darren McCarty, Tomas Sandstrom, Joey Kocur, Tomas Holmstrom, Anders Eriksson, Tim Taylor, Mike Knuble; and the entire Detroit Red Wing Organization as evidence of our highest esteem and congratulations.
Senators Schuette, DeBeaussaert, Young, Berryman, Bouchard, Hoffman, Posthumus, Stille, Emmons, Stallings, Shugars and McManus were named co-sponsors of the resolution.

Senator Dunaskiss asked and was granted unanimous consent to make a statement and moved that the statement be printed in the Journal.
The motion prevailed.
Senator Dunaskiss' statement is as follows:
I would like to explain my "no" vote on the Peters' amendment to the Mental Health Budget. This amendment was added adding funding to Clinton Valley Center.
Sometimes, you change your mind and I am not afraid to admit that the facts changed mine. This facility is the oldest in Michigan and it's in the worst condition. I've been there. In good conscience, I could not vote to close other facilities and keep this facility open.
As a former Senator of this district, I had great concerns about the well-being of Clinton Valley residents and reluctance about the consolidation process. I have visited the facility on several occasions. I met with residents, staff and employees. It was conveyed to me that portions of the building were uninhabitable. In fact, I was told that one of the buildings had a roof collapse. In addition, others had voiced their concerns that other buildings on the premise were in disrepair and dangerous to the well-being of the residents.
My primary concern has always been for the well-being and safety of the people who live in Clinton Valley Center. Due to these concerns, I've had extensive conversations with the Department of Community Health to ensure that the safety and well-being of the residents would not be compromised. Additionally, I reviewed a copy of the consolidation plan. The representatives of the Department of Community Health reassured me that each resident will receive an individual care plan as specified in the consolidation plan.
I was also assured by the boilerplate language of House Bill No. 4306, as it passed the Senate last week, because it had safeguards and provisions that will ensure the individual needs of each person before they are transferred or discharged.
Utilization of CVC has decreased over time, mirroring the decreases that have occurred throughout the mental health institutional system. Last week, I had a meeting with the representatives from the department. They informed me that the census at CVC has declined from 502 in 1985 to 195 in June of this year. Concurrently, there's a lawsuit today that has cost the taxpayers almost $800,000 to keep 83 employees on the payroll. This clearly indicates the patient load has gone down, but the staff wants to stay. This equals $12,000 per day; over $84,000 per week in taxpayer dollars without any benefit to the patients.
The trend toward deinstitutionalization can be expected to continue as the Community Health Service Programs continue to develop new and expanded community-based services. I agree with Neil Munroe from the Oakland Press, when he said, "What the state is doing is what it must do--spending on treatment, not on inefficient facilities."
