Motions and Resolutions

Reps. Bieda, Miller, Accavitti, Adamini, Anderson, Ball, Brown, Byrnes, Byrum, Cheeks, Clack, Condino, Cushingberry, Farrah, Garfield, Gillard, Gleason, Gonzales, Green, Hopgood, Hunter, Kolb, Kathleen Law, Lemmons, III, Lemmons, Jr., Lipsey, Mayes, McDowell, Meisner, Mortimer, Murphy, Plakas, Polidori, Sak, Shaffer, Sheltrown, Spade, Tobocman, Vagnozzi, Vander Veen, Waters and Zelenko offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 251.

A resolution commemorating May 12, 2006, as Michigan Fibromyalgia Awareness Day.

Whereas, Fibromyalgia is a disease with uncertain cause and no known cure. This chronic condition affects men, women, and children of all ages around the world, affecting an estimated 10 million people in the United States; and

Whereas, Fibromyalgia is a very serious and chronic disease in which people suffer unbearable pain. Fibromyalgia causes these people to suffer in many ways including sleep fatigue, which is a disturbance of deep sleep and patterns of non-restorative sleep. They can also suffer various nervous system pains including neuropathic pain, central nervous system pain, transmitter or receptor dysfunction pain, headache, interstitial cystitis, dizziness, tingling sensations, lack of sensations, vision problems, noise sensitivity, dysfunctional bowels, and problems with memory functioning; and

Whereas, This chronic condition makes daily activities nearly impossible. Patients are unable to lift objects even of light weight, have problems climbing and descending stairs, and any physical strain makes it difficult to conduct daily routines; and

Whereas, A diagnosis of Fibromyalgia takes an average of five years. During this time the patient is enduring all this pain, he or she often faces discrimination at both the workplace and the community; and

Whereas, The lack of public education makes Fibromyalgia difficult to treat, let alone diagnose. Public education and research on the causes and diagnosis of this illness would help to eliminate a misunderstanding of its conditions, and possibly make advances in diagnosis and treatment more feasible in the future; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body commemorate May 12, 2006, as Michigan Fibromyalgia Awareness Day.

Pending the reference of the resolution to a committee,

Rep. Ward moved that Rule 77 be suspended and the resolution be considered at this time.

The motion prevailed, 3/5 of the members present voting therefor.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Zelenko, Accavitti, Adamini, Anderson, Bieda, Brown, Byrnes, Byrum, Cheeks, Clack, Condino, Cushingberry, Farrah, Gillard, Gleason, Gonzales, Hopgood, Kolb, Kathleen Law, Lemmons, III, Lemmons, Jr., Lipsey, Mayes, McDowell, Meisner, Mortimer, Murphy, Nitz, Plakas, Sak, Spade, Tobocman, Vagnozzi and Waters offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 252.

A resolution recognizing April 30, 2006, as Beta Sigma Phi Day and the week of April 23-30, 2006, as Beta Sigma Phi Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The women of Beta Sigma Phi have throughout their lives shouldered the various responsibilities that life has put upon them, often without the support structure afforded by so many other groups; and

Whereas, These same women, each in their own stage of life, deserve the camaraderie of a supportive sisterhood as they work to redefine themselves as women with varying levels of responsibility to their family, work, and community; and

Whereas, Beta Sigma Phi, a non-political, non-sectarian organization dedicated to a variety of service, social, and cultural projects, has given more than two million dollars in financial support to a wide array of charitable and health research organizations; and

Whereas, Beta Sigma Phi, a service group, is also dedicated to the unity of sisterhood; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body recognize April 30, 2006, as Beta Sigma Phi Day and the week of April 23-30, 2006, as Beta Sigma Phi Week in the state of Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That we join with the women of Beta Sigma Phi and offer them our sincerest praise and support in their efforts.

Pending the reference of the resolution to a committee,

Rep. Ward moved that Rule 77 be suspended and the resolution be considered at this time.

The motion prevailed, 3/5 of the members present voting therefor.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. McDowell, Sak, Byrum, Accavitti, Adamini, Anderson, Ball, Bieda, Brown, Byrnes, Clack, Condino, Cushingberry, Farrah, Gillard, Gleason, Gonzales, Hopgood, Kolb, Kathleen Law, Lemmons, III, Lemmons, Jr., Lipsey, Mayes, Meisner, Miller, Mortimer, Murphy, Nitz, Plakas, Polidori, Shaffer, Sheltrown, Spade, Tobocman, Vagnozzi, Vander Veen, Waters and Zelenko offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 253.

A resolution recognizing April 28, 2006, as Arbor Day 2006 in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The members of the House of Representatives are dedicated to the planting and nurturing of trees throughout our state; and

Whereas, The beauty of Arbor Day is that, rather than looking backward to events of the past, this day looks forward with promise for a future filled with trees. Arbor Day celebrates the planting and nurturing of trees. It celebrates all the ways trees enrich our lives and stabilize our environment; and

Whereas, Arbor Day first appeared in the United States in 1872. That same year, J. Sterling Morton is credited with introducing this counties first Arbor Day resolution; and

Whereas, Today, above all, Arbor Day is for children, parents, and grandparents to strengthen the bond between generations by planting trees together. It presents a tremendous opportunity to teach fundamental lessons about stewardship of our natural resources and caring for our environment. There is no more powerful demonstration than helping children plant and care for trees that their own children and grandchildren will enjoy; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body recognize April 28, 2006, as Arbor Day 2006 in the state of Michigan. Therefore, this day is hereby especially set apart and dedicated for tree planting. We urge the people of Michigan to recognize the vital importance of tree planting.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Government Operations.

Reps. Gillard, Accavitti, Adamini, Anderson, Ball, Bieda, Brandenburg, Brown, Byrnes, Byrum, Cheeks, Clack, Condino, Cushingberry, Farhat, Farrah, Gleason, Gonzales, Hansen, Hopgood, Hunter, Jones, Kolb, LaJoy, Kathleen Law, Lemmons, III, Lemmons, Jr., Lipsey, Mayes, McDowell, Meisner, Miller, Mortimer, Murphy, Nitz, Pearce, Plakas, Polidori, Sak, Sheltrown, Spade, Tobocman, Vagnozzi, Vander Veen, Waters and Zelenko offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 254.

A resolution commemorating June 3-11, 2006, as Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Michigan and its economy are defined by the Great Lakes and depend on its great abundance of freshwater for manufacturing, tourism, fishing, public water supplies, agriculture, and numerous other uses; and

Whereas, Preventing the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species ultimately benefits the state of Michigan, and stopping the introduction and spread of these species would reduce the need of the state of Michigan, business, industry, and citizens to employ costly methods to control and manage them; and

Whereas, Over 160 non-indigenous aquatic invasive species have been introduced to the Great Lakes; many of which are displacing native species, disrupting habitats and degrading natural, managed and agricultural landscapes and damaging water-based infrastructure, resulting in millions of dollars for control efforts each year; and

Whereas, Michigan has almost 1 million registered boaters and many other recreational, commercial and industrial users of over 11,000 lakes and ponds and over 36,000 miles of streams in the state, many of which are impacted by aquatic invasive species; and,

Whereas, Aquatic invasive species awareness is an important first step towards behavior change, which prevents the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species; and

Whereas, The introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species must be addressed by all levels of government, business, industry, environmental groups, community organizations, and citizens to protect Michigan and Great Lakes' waters from the irreversible damage caused by aquatic invasive species; now, therefore be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body commemorates June 3-11, 2006, as Aquatic Invasive Species Awareness Week in the state of Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, All citizens must increase their understanding and awareness of aquatic invasive species and their ecological and economic impacts, and take preventative measures to stop the spread and introduction of aquatic invasive species; and be it further

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be transmitted to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Michigan Department of Agriculture, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Michigan Department of Transportation,Office of the Great Lakes, Great Lakes Fishery Commission, Council of Great Lakes Governors, Michigan congressional delegation, and the Great Lakes Commission.

Pending the reference of the resolution to a committee,

Rep. Ward moved that Rule 77 be suspended and the resolution be considered at this time.

The motion prevailed, 3/5 of the members present voting therefor.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Farhat, Hildenbrand, Meyer, Acciavatti, Mortimer, Shaffer, Casperson, Huizenga, Schuitmaker, Ball, Newell, Proos, Pavlov, Robertson, Pastor, Jones, Pearce, Green, Polidori, Walker, Moolenaar, Emmons, Booher, Stahl, Ward, Taub, Miller, Palsrok, Adamini, Sak, Sheltrown, Cushingberry, Bennett, Spade, Wojno, Byrnes, Farrah, Hune, Gaffney, Brown, Caswell, Accavitti, Anderson, Bieda, Clack, Condino, Gillard, Gonzales, Hansen, Hopgood, Kolb, Kooiman, LaJoy, David Law, Kathleen Law, Lemmons, III, McDowell, Meisner, Murphy, Nitz, Plakas, Tobocman, Vander Veen and Zelenko offered the following concurrent resolution:

House Concurrent Resolution No. 36.

A concurrent resolution to memorialize the United States Congress to enact the Great Lakes Collaboration Implementation Act.

Whereas, The Great Lakes are a natural wonder of the world. The Great Lakes contain one-fifth of the world's fresh surface water, forming the largest fresh surface water system on earth. The Great Lakes provide drinking water, food, recreation, and transportation to more than 35 million United States residents; and

Whereas, The Great Lakes affect all aspects of life in Michigan and are inextricably linked to Michigan's history, culture, and economy. The Great Lakes fuel Michigan's tourism and outdoor recreation industry. Recreational fishing alone adds $1.4 billion annually to the state's economy; and

Whereas, The Great Lakes are ailing from serious environmental problems, including aquatic invasive species introductions, toxic contamination of sediments, and sewage overflows. These problems will have long-lasting effects on the Great Lakes, Michigan's economy, and our way of life if they are not addressed; and

Whereas, The Great Lakes Regional Collaboration--an unprecedented collaborative partnership of 1,500 federal, state, and local government officials and program managers, scientists, and interested private stakeholders--completed a strategic action plan to restore and protect the Great Lakes in December 2005. The consensus-based strategic action planrecommends that the states and the federal government take substantial new steps to restore and protect the Great Lakes and address the most critical threats to the Lakes; and

Whereas, The Great Lakes Collaboration Implementation Act (H.R. 5100 and S. 2545) has been introduced in the United States Congress to implement the strategic action plan. This bipartisan legislation would create new programs, renew the commitment to critical federal programs, and authorize $3.5 billion per year over five years to stop the introduction of aquatic invasive species, improve infrastructure to prevent sewage overflows, clean up contaminated sediments, restore fish and wildlife habitat, phase out the use of mercury in products, and increase project coordination and oversight; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That we memorialize the United States Congress to enact the Great Lakes Collaboration Implementation Act (H.R. 5100 and S. 2545); 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.

The concurrent resolution was referred to the Committee on Natural Resources, Great Lakes, Land Use, and Environment.
