Bishop Welton Lawrence of East Grand Boulevard Church of God in Christ of Detroit offered the following invocation:

Our Father and our God, as we stand in Your divine presence, we recognize that You are the shepherd of our souls. You are the rock of refuge, and You are our strong fortress of salvation. We begin this day with the word of thanks because this day was not promised to any of us. We had no guarantee last night that we would even be here this morning. We thank You for how You have blessed us as we slumbered and slept last night, completely oblivious to the life that went on around us. It was You who blessed us to rise this morning in our right minds. It was You who blessed us to arrive this morning with a reasonable degree of sanity.

As I stood before my bathroom mirror, I had to recognize that You gave me presence of mind. I do not try to brush my teeth with my hairbrush or brush my hair with my toothbrush, but I recognize that I still had my senses intact, and therefore, you alone are worthy of my highest praise and devotion.

This morning, we thank You for one more opportunity that You have given us to magnify Your name and to try to do good through humanity. We live in a world of uncertainty. We live in a world where the moral compass that formerly guided our attitudes and behaviors seems to have gone awry. Standards of conduct that formerly were considered right are now considered wrong, and behaviors that formerly were considered wrong are now considered acceptable and right. Our world is in confusion. The Holy Scriptures have told us that there will be wars and rumors of wars. Even today, there remain rumors of war and conflict.

Today, we pray that You will look with divine favor upon the young people who now serve in the armed forces of this nation and are even now in harm’s way. We pray that You will ease the pain that exists in the bodies, the minds, and spirits of the young people who return from war with their bodies broken and maimed because of the sacrifices for this nation. Even today, we pray for the people of our state and every community that now suffers from the impact of a downturned economy. Send Your comfort; send Your peace.

Gracious and sovereign Lord, today we invoke Your presence upon this chamber and upon this body. We pray for Your servants, the leaders of this great state, that You might keep them faithful to the solemn oath and the offices to which they have been charged. Strengthen them, uphold them, guide them, and direct them to fulfill Your purposes. Give them godly counsel and aid that they may preserve the integrity and honor of their office. We ask that You, in Your omnipotent power, give them permanence to maintain righteousness and fairness. Give them the determination to strive for peace with all men, and give them wisdom in the hours of decision. Give them serenity in the face of crisis, and give them courage in the moment of danger.

Most merciful God, we pray that You would protect and defend them and that they may serve the security and well-being of Your people. We ask that You make them effective leaders for a state and people who are affected by the negative impacts of life. Lord, set them aside. The servants do the work where they have been called by an elective people.

Heavenly Father, we pray that You will guide and keep Your people. Watch over those who are entrusted with administration of this state. Make them pure and honest and all of them plenteous with heavenly wisdom. Grant them the grace that they may be attuned with the Holy Spirit and rule in fear and trembling of God. Give them the favor and influence of people, which come from following in the steps of Christ. So fill them with Your Spirit that they may be effective leaders. Create in them the honest desire to serve faithfully. Bless their efforts that their work will not suffer from mediocrity. Bless them as they struggle to make those decisions that are right and just but not always easy. Help them to realize and always remember that their decisions have the power to bring hurt or healing to the people of our state and every community.

We thank You, God, for this opportunity. Our prayer for this state comes from hearts that are open to You, eternal God. We ask that these things be done in Your matchless name. Amen.

The President, Lieutenant Governor Calley, led the members of the Senate in recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 31.

A concurrent resolution of tribute offered as a memorial for Joseph F. Young, Jr., former member of the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Whereas, The members of the Michigan Legislature were saddened to learn of the passing of Joe Young, Jr. For 24 years, he dedicated his life to helping the people of Detroit as their State Representative and State Senator. His warmth of heart and positive approach to policy-making will not soon be forgotten; and

Whereas, After his graduation from Michigan State University, Joe Young, Jr., entered the family business of public service. He began his career as a legislative staffer working for former House Speaker William Ryan, former Representative Alma Stallworth, and Congressman Dale Kildee. Following in the footsteps of his father, he was elected to the House of Representatives in 1978. He would spend the next 24 years serving the people of the Detroit area in the Michigan House of Representatives and Senate. For ten of those years, he served alongside his father, the first African-American father and son to serve together in the Michigan Legislature; and

Whereas, A conscientious lawmaker who took his efforts to help others seriously, Joe Young, Jr., was a strong advocate for children, worked tirelessly to help those in his district and the state, and was a trustworthy colleague. Constantly striving to become a better public servant, he attended Cooley Law School and earned a master’s degree in public administration from Western Michigan University while serving in the Legislature. Following his legislative service, he continued to demonstrate his passion for helping others as an active member of his church and as a weekend supervisor for his local school district’s recreation department; and

Whereas, Joe Young, Jr., left a lasting legacy with his work inside and outside the Legislature. He is survived by his four children, Kimberly Young, Kerry Marchand, Joseph F. Young III, and Brooke Young; and seven grandchildren, Dejah Young, Adam Eason, Jr., Julian Young, Kyara Marchand, Kennadie Marchand, Anthony Kyles III, and Kailey Kyles; who should all take great pride in the accomplishments of his life; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That we offer this expression of our highest tribute to honor the memory of Joseph F. Young, Jr., a member of the House of Representatives from 1979 to 1994 and a member of the Senate from 1995 to 2002; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Young family as evidence of our lasting esteem for his memory and contributions.

The question being on the adoption of the concurrent resolution,

The concurrent resolution was adopted by a unanimous standing vote of the Senate.

Senator Meekhof moved that rule 3.204 be suspended to name the entire membership of the Senate and the Lieutenant Governor as co‑sponsors of the concurrent resolution.

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

A moment of silence was observed in memory of former State Senator Joseph F. Young, Jr.

Senators Hood, Richardville, Smith and Johnson asked and were granted unanimous consent to make statements and moved that the statements be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Hood’s statement is as follows:

I concur with the Majority Leader’s thoughts. I met Mr. Young when I was a young fellow. He served with my dad in the House of Representatives. That is where I met him through Lansing and through their endeavors through the city of Detroit and the times they got together for meetings. It could have been meetings on legislation or just the camaraderie that they had as colleagues representing the same city.

I want to say to the family, thank you. Thank you for what you have given to us. You have given to us his time because our fathers spent a lot of time here in Lansing doing the people’s work. He spent a lot of time away from home up here in Lansing when they met Monday through Friday and all the other hours they did with their committees. The families sacrificed as well. I want to stand before you and say thank you, and thank you for the work that he did. I want to thank him for the work that he did to make not only the city of Detroit and southeast Michigan, but this state of Michigan, a better place by his service that he has given us.

He will be truly and sorely missed as a leader in our communities in what he did in his after-legislative life in helping out children and things of that nature. We say thank you and I say thank you. We appreciate and we will continue to appreciate and not forget the legacy that he has brought here to this state of Michigan. Once again, thank you for you, and thank you for being here. Thank you to the Majority Leader and the Senate for taking up this resolution and making his place in history a bit deeper engraved in our history.

Senator Richardville’s statement is as follows:

On behalf of the Michigan Senate today, we want to give the family of Senator Joe Young, Jr., our deepest condolences. I’d like to acknowledge Senator Young’s family who are right behind me. They traveled to Lansing today to be a part of our memorial presentation for their father and grandfather. Here with us today are son and daughter-in-law Joseph F. Young III and Gina Young and his daughters Kimberly Young and Brooke Young. Some of the grandchildren are Dejah Young, Adam Eason, Jr., Julian Young, Anthony Kyles III, Kailey Kyles, and Kyara Marchand.

We hope that you will find comfort in knowing what a great man and public servant Senator Young was and that Michigan is a better place as a result of his continuous advocacy. We thank you for being here today.

Senator Smith’s statement is as follows:

I concur with the previous two speakers. I wanted to apologize to the family for missing Senator Young’s funeral. I was out of town at that time. I grew up with Senator Young’s children. I played baseball with Joe III. I have had many nights hanging out with Brooke. As children who grew up in this beautiful establishment, you don’t really get to appreciate what this place actually means, but Senator Young was a very skilled legislator. He taught me a lot, and I just want to pass on my condolences. You are in my prayers and thank you for being here.

Senator Johnson’s statement is as follows:

I just wanted to underscore what I believe is both the cultural and historical significance of Senators like Joe Young, Morris Hood, Virgil Smith, and Coleman Young; and the fact that today the five of us Detroiters who represent Detroit and its surrounding region are standing on the shoulders of giants like Senator Joe Young. It is indeed a pleasure and we hope that we are serving not only in the tradition and legacy of Senator Joe Young, but we hope that these gentlemen find great pride and satisfaction in the work that we hope to continue in this august chamber.

We have had an opportunity to hear about the beauty of the greats and to understand what they meant to this institution. I personally would simply like to thank the family for his contribution and your sacrifice. Today we understand on whose shoulders we stand, and we certainly hope to continue in their tradition.

I would like to take a moment to celebrate the life of Rick Simonson, who unexpectedly passed away this last weekend. Rick moved to Lansing in 1965 when he was 15 years old and joined the Capitol page program, where he lived and finished high school with other pages. Afterwards he graduated from Albion College, where he later served as trustee. He went on to work 20 years in the Michigan Senate, 16 as chief of staff. Rick also served as the Michigan director for the re-election of President Gerald Ford and was the chairman of the committee to elect the first two women to the Michigan Supreme Court.

Rick was also in his 36th year serving as the parliamentarian for the Michigan Republican Party. Mr. President, if we could please have a moment of silence in the chamber to remember Rick Simonson.

Department of State Police

June 25, 2012

The 2011 Michigan Annual Drunk Driving Audit provides detailed information concerning traffic fatalities and injuries, as well as arrest activities that are part of ongoing efforts to reduce drunk driving in our state. Alcohol and/or drug related fatal crashes remain a significant traffic safety issue, with approximately 35.6 percent of the total fatal crashes involving alcohol and/or drugs.

The crash data displayed for each county are 2011 traffic crash statistics. The Michigan Department of State Police, Criminal Justice Information Center, maintains the state’s central repository for all crash data collected in Michigan. The crash data is housed in the Traffic Crash Reporting System and the Drunk Driving Audit is created using this data.

A reportable crash in Michigan is defined as: a motor vehicle that is in transport on the roadway that results in death, injury or property damage of $1,000 or more. In addition, a crash is reported for any snowmobile or off-road vehicle (ORV) with damage of $100 or more, whether on the roadway or off the roadway.

The Michigan Annual Drunk Driving Audit was compiled with information and data provided by the Michigan Department of State Police, the Michigan Department of State, and the Michigan Department of Transportation. We appreciate the teamwork, assistance and dedication of each of these departments in helping to make Michigan’s roads safe. We look forward to our continued partnership.

Questions regarding Section I (Traffic Crash and Arrest Data) should be directed to the Michigan Department of State Police, Criminal Justice Information Center, Traffic Crash Reporting Section at (517) 241-1699. Questions regarding Section II (Conviction Disposition Data) should be directed to the Michigan Department of State at (517) 322-1598.

Respectfully,

Brian Calley

Acting and Lieutenant Governor

The following message from the Governor was received:

July 2, 2012

I have today signed Enrolled Senate Bill 248, which calls for a strategic plan for state owned land and a cap on certain public lands until that plan is adopted.

I want to thank Senator Casperson and Representative Foster for raising this key issue within the context of Senate Bill 248. I agree that the state needs to have a comprehensive land management policy to help guide sound and fiscally prudent land acquisitions and divestments. Our public lands are an important part of Michigan’s reinvention, both for recreation and resource-based industries.

We need a measurable, outcome-based strategy for our public lands that tells us what we own and why. It is this strategy that should guide the quantity, location and uses of our public lands moving forward.

While the bill has a technical flaw concerning the automatic sunset of the land cap when the Strategic Plan is adopted, I am signing the bill with assurances from legislative leaders on this issue that they will work to amend it on July 18th.

Upon completion of these acts, I will urge the DNR to work closely with the legislature and stakeholders to craft the strategic plan. Once the plan is complete, I will call upon the legislature to quickly adopt the plan, removing the cap from northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula.

Sincerely,

Rick Snyder

Governor

Sincerely,

Rick Snyder

Governor

The message was referred to the Committee on Government Operations.

The following message from the Governor was received and read:

TOBACCO TAX; MODIFY TAX ADMINISTRATION,

ENFORCEMENT, AND DISTRIBUTION

June 20, 2012

Today I have signed Enrolled Senate Bill 930, which amends the Tobacco Products Tax Act in order to increase enforcement and tobacco tax collections. I have, however, disapproved an item pursuant to Section 19 of Article V of the Michigan Constitution of 1963. The specific veto is detailed in the attached copy of the bill that has been filed with the Secretary of State.

Given the fact that only a few months remain in the current fiscal year, and because this appropriation was not part of the resolution of the budget, I have disapproved proposed fiscal year 2012 appropriations of $6.0 million in Section 12, subsection 10. Additional funding for tobacco tax enforcement activities has been included in the fiscal year 2013 budget for the departments of Attorney General, State Police and Treasury, which will enable these agencies to augment their existing tobacco enforcement activities beginning in October.

I thank the Legislature for its work on Enrolled Senate Bill 930 and its support for improvements to tobacco tax enforcement and collection efforts.

Respectfully,

Rick Snyder

Governor

This bill was signed by the Governor on June 20, 2012, at 1:56 p.m. (Filed with the Secretary of State on June 20, 2012, at 3:45 p.m.) and assigned Public Act No. 188.

The question being on the passage of the vetoed line item, the objections of the Governor to the contrary notwithstanding,

Senator Meekhof moved that further consideration of the bill be postponed for today.

The motion prevailed.

The following message from the Governor was received and read:

ELECTIONS; REQUIRE PHOTOGRAPH IDENTIFICATION FOR IN-PERSON

VOTER REGISTRATION; AND PROVIDE REGISTRATION AND TRAINING OF

THIRD-PARTY VOTER REGISTRATION ORGANIZATIONS

ELECTIONS; REQUIRE DECLARATION OF UNITED STATES CITIZENSHIP

WHEN VOTING OR APPLYING FOR ABSENT VOTER BALLOT

July 3, 2102

Today I am returning to you Enrolled Senate Bills 754 and 803 without signature. Enrolled Senate Bill 754 precludes voter registration groups from receiving and delivering registration applications until at least one member of their organization has received training by the secretary of state or local clerk. I commend the Secretary of State for working with the legislature on improving our voter registration rules and I am supportive of the concept of training individuals involved in voter registration. The language in Enrolled Senate Bill 754 pertaining to the registration of third party voter registration organizations, and the timing and training of those entities, may cause confusion with regard to ongoing voter registration efforts. While our current Secretary of State would be very proactive on offering training, it is important to ensure that future officials provide proper training.

Enrolled Senate Bill 803 requires voters to affirm their citizenship by checking a box before their ballot is counted. I am concerned that Enrolled Senate Bill 803 could create voter confusion among absentee voters. I appreciate the issue of ensuring that voters are properly qualified including the requirement that they are US citizens. An alternative would be to simply include US citizen in the voter’s opening declarative statement on the application.

Voting rights are precious and we need to work especially hard to make it possible for people to vote. I look forward to working with you and the Secretary of State to address the issues above so we can implement improvements to our system.

Sincerely,

Rick Snyder

Governor

The first conference report was adopted, a majority of the members serving voting therefor, as follows:

In The Chair: President

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Kahn’s statement is as follows:

I’m smiling because I have three wonderful people behind me. I suppose I should also be crying a little bit because they are all leaving. Today, I would like to recognize three truly outstanding people in my office, all of which are leaving.

I say with sadness farewell to Steve Saxe who has served as my scheduler. He embarks on a new journey as a law student at William and Mary College. I look forward to him majoring in the sort of things that will bring him back here to Michigan that will help us manage the Legislature. Steve has been a help to me and my office managing not only my schedule, but always helping me with answers to my questions and where they might be obtained. He has sort of been the glue on our team, so as a token of gratitude for his work and dedication, I want to present this tribute to you. It says, “Let it be known, That it is with great appreciation for your effort and I wish you well as you embark on this new journey. He began in our office as an intern fresh from Michigan State University and moving from an intern to an integral part of the office and ultimately the glue.” It has been a wonderful experience for us, and I hope for you too.

My two summer interns Carley Kocks and Sean Bridenbaugh have been great help in our office. Sean has been in the office since February, and Carley has been with us since May. They have helped with constituent services and helped in particular in our district. They have seen a bit of the legislative process, and I hope you have enjoyed that as much as we’ve enjoyed having you with us. Among the things they worked on was our American flag legislation, Senate Bill No. 640. I would like to present them with a seal of the state of Michigan signed by all the members of the Senate.

Senator Caswell’s statement is as follows:

I don’t have a tribute. We don’t own computers in Hillsdale County; we write in hieroglyphics. Sadly, I would let the chamber know that I am losing a key staff member who is Kerry Krone over here to my right. She has been involved with the Senate for years and years. She worked under Senator Cassis. She is hardworking, loyal, and conscientious. All I can say is that I am going to work diligently in the next year to find out what position she is moving into over at the Liquor Control Commission. I am going to do my best to defund that position, and then you will have to come back to work for me again. Thank you very much for all your hard work, Kerry. You are a great gal.

By unanimous consent the Senate proceeded to the order of

Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That when the Senate adjourns on Wednesday, July 18, 2012, it stands adjourned until Wednesday, August 15, 2012, at 12:00 noon; and when it adjourns Wednesday, August 15, 2012, it stands adjourned until Tuesday, September 11, 2012, at 10:00 a.m.

The question being on the adoption of the concurrent resolution,

The concurrent resolution was adopted.

House Concurrent Resolution No. 57.

A concurrent resolution of tribute offered as a memorial for William Van Regenmorter, former member of the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Whereas, It was with great sorrow that the members of the Legislature learned of the death of our former colleague, William Van Regenmorter. Respected on both sides of the aisle, he will always be remembered as the humble and compassionate champion for crime victims; and

Whereas, A graduate of Calvin College, William Van Regenmorter began his career as a businessman and worked as an analyst for Dun and Bradstreet. He served as an Ottawa County commissioner before running to represent the people in the western Michigan region he loved. In 1982, he was elected to the Michigan House of Representatives; and

Whereas, For the next 24 years, William Van Regenmorter would distinguish himself as one of Michigan’s most conscientious and dedicated legislators in the House of Representatives and the Senate. For sixteen of those years, he served as chair of the Judiciary Committee, helping to shepherd through hundreds of bills that changed Michigan’s criminal and civil justice system for the better. He translated his strong belief in family values into creating laws that would require truth in sentencing for criminal prison terms, crack down on drunken driving, protect abused children, and assist people with disabilities; and

Whereas, In a legislative career with many high points, his singular achievement was on the issue of crime victims’ rights. At a time when crime victims had few rights in the justice system, he authored legislation that would become a national model. He successfully led efforts to amend Michigan’s constitution and statutes to ensure victims were treated fairly and with respect. He later founded the Crime Victim Foundation to financially assist crime victims. For these efforts and many others, he received numerous awards and honors over his career, culminating with the Ronald Wilson Reagan Public Policy Award in 2009; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That we offer this expression of our highest tribute to honor the memory of William Van Regenmorter, a member of the House of Representatives from 1983 to 1990 and 2003 to 2006 and a member of the Senate from 1991 to 2002; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Van Regenmorter family as evidence of our lasting esteem for his memory and contributions.

The House of Representatives has adopted the concurrent resolution.

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

Senator Meekhof moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The concurrent resolution was adopted by a unanimous standing vote of the Senate.

Senator Meekhof moved that rule 3.204 be suspended to name the entire membership of the Senate and the Lieutenant Governor as co‑sponsors of the concurrent resolution.

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

A moment of silence was observed in memory of former State Senator and Representative William Van Regenmorter.

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Meekhof’s statement is as follows:

For nearly 25 years, Senator Van Regenmorter was their voice, their conscience, and most of all, their representative in Lansing. Simply known as Van R because a lot of people had trouble pronouncing his Dutch name, so he was affectionately dubbed Van R. The Senator leaves behind a legacy of a great statesman, a gentleman, and a lawmaker who made a difference in people’s lives. He was thoughtful, deliberate, and thorough; those are three words that don’t always accompany somebody who has been called a politician.

Bill was very involved in crime victim’s rights, and, in fact, a lot of the legislation he passed here in Michigan is a model for the 49 other states and how they have modeled their crime victim’s legislation. Since the Crime Victim’s Rights Act was completed here in Michigan, over 13 million Michigan residents have reported being a victim of a crime. Every single one of those people have rights today because of what Bill Van Regenmorter did.

Perhaps what Bill Van Regenmorter was best known for was his use of his experience, his compassion, and dedication, along with his ability to build bipartisan coalitions to truly represent the people who sent him to Lansing. He had a lot of people in high places who respected him, but there’s none more so than the people he represented because they felt he represented them. He represented their ideas, and he gave voice to them in an arena that is oftentimes left cluttered.

It was my great honor on behalf of this Senate body to deliver the flag that was flown at half-mast over the Capitol to his family at his funeral a number of weeks ago.

Senator Hood’s statement is as follows:

I concur with the last speaker. I am sad to stand before you for the second time to make statements on someone who I had the opportunity to serve with. I agree with all the comments that were made about his sincerity and his conscious efforts to make this state a better state through his Crime Victim’s Rights Act. He was always a soft voice who would come and talk to you and was always fair with me in our dealings through legislation. He always had a great piece of advice to go along with it. My heart and condolences go out to the family.

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 31.
