Bishop Paul Bradley, Bishop of the Diocese of Kalamazoo in Kalamazoo, offered the following invocation:

“Loving and Provident God, Source of all Life and Blessings, please bless these, Your daughters and sons, who have been charged to help lead and guide the people of the state of Michigan. In the midst of the many challenges facing us in our society, dear God, please enlighten these Representatives to stand up for the cause of all that is right, just and good. Along with their own wisdom and convictions, may they remember that all challenges are easier to meet, all burdens are made lighter to bear, and all difficulties are more readily resolved when we remain open to Your divine wisdom and are guided by Your eternal Truths.

Therefore we ask that You share Your divine Spirit of wisdom and insight with these women and men at this highest level of public service in the state of Michigan who are devoting their talents and energy for the good of their fellow citizens.

May their legislative decisions lead to the advancement of the common good, and may none of us ever lose sight of the needs of the ‘least among us’: the poor, the vulnerable and the marginalized in our society.

For all Your abundant blessings, we are filled with gratitude; for Your unconditional Love for all of us, we are filled with praise, now, and forever and ever. Amen.”

House Resolution No. 104.

A resolution to declare July 22, 2015, as Fragile X Awareness Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Fragile X is the most common inherited cause of developmental disability, cognitive impairment and autism affecting people of every race, income level, and nationality; and

Whereas, One in every 150 women and 1 in 400 men are carriers of a Fragile X mutation and can pass the mutation to their offspring; and

Whereas, One in every 4,000 children is born with the Fragile X Syndrome and typically requires a lifetime of special care at a cost of over $2,000,000; and

Whereas, Nearly 1.5 million Americans are living with the health impacts of a Fragile X mutation; and

Whereas, Fragile X remains frequently undiagnosed due to the lack of awareness about the condition, even within the medical community; and

Whereas, The genetic mutation causing Fragile X has been studied and is easily identified by testing; and

Whereas, The Fragile X protein also plays a critical role in normal brain function and in other neuropsychiatric conditions including autism, schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, clinical depression, and other forms of X-linked cognitive impairment; and

Whereas, The study of Fragile X provides a unique research opportunity for advancing the understanding of these other neuropsychiatric conditions; and

Whereas, With concerted research efforts, a targeted treatment for Fragile X will likely be developed; and

Whereas, Fragile X research has been vastly underfunded despite the prevalence of the condition, the great potential for the development of targeted treatments, and the significance that Fragile X research has for related disorders; and

Whereas, The U.S. Congress has designated July 22 as “National Fragile X Awareness Day”; and

Whereas, The House of Representatives of the state of Michigan as an institution and members of the Michigan Legislature as individuals are in unique positions to help raise public awareness about the need for increased funding for research, early diagnosis, and treatment for the condition known as Fragile X; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare July 22, 2015, as Fragile X Awareness Day in the state of Michigan.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

Whereas, One in every 151 women and 1 in 468 men are carriers of a Fragile X mutation and can pass the mutation to their offspring; and

Whereas, One in every 4,000 boys and 1 in 6,000 girls are born with Fragile X. Most children with Fragile X typically require a lifetime of special care which could cost over $2,000,000; and

Whereas, Nearly 1.5 million Americans are living with the health impacts of a Fragile X mutation; and

Whereas, Fragile X remains frequently undiagnosed until puberty; and

Whereas, The genetic mutation causing Fragile X has been studied, and is easily identified by testing; and

Whereas, The Fragile X protein also plays a critical role in normal brain function and in other neuropsychiatric conditions including autism, schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, clinical depression and other forms of X-linked cognitive impairment; and

Whereas, The study of Fragile X provides a unique research opportunity for advancing the understanding of these other neuropsychiatric conditions; and

Whereas, With concerted research efforts, a targeted treatment for Fragile X will likely be developed; and

Whereas, Fragile X research has been vastly underfunded despite the prevalence of the condition, the great potential for the development of targeted treatments, and the significance that Fragile X research has for related disorders; and

Whereas, The U.S. Congress has designated July 22 as “National Fragile X Awareness Day”; and

Whereas, The House of Representatives of the state of Michigan as an institution and members of the Michigan Legislature as individuals are in unique positions to help raise public awareness about the need for increased funding for research, early diagnosis and treatment for the condition known as Fragile X; now, therefore, be it

House Resolution No. 105.

A resolution to declare June 21-28, 2015, as Community Theatre Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The American Association of Community Theatre will be holding the 2015 AACTFest in Grand Rapids, Michigan at the Grand Rapids Civic Theatre from June 23-27, 2015.

The week will also include workshops, ample opportunities to network, and theatre vendor exhibits. Performances and exhibits are open to the public; and

Whereas, Michigan’s more than 50 community theatre groups provide an invaluable service to the residents of the regions they serve. Community theatres are the cornerstones of creative life in Michigan cities, towns, and villages. Community theatres provide quality entertainment, intellectual stimulation, challenge, and opportunity; and

Whereas, The creation of Community Theatre Week in the state of Michigan demonstrates the state’s commitment to the arts and to local theatre organizations; now, therefore, be it

House Resolution No. 106.

A resolution to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 on August 6, 2015.

Whereas, The civil rights movement in the 1950’s and 1960’s sparked the conversation and movement for the need to expand voting rights for all Americans; and

Whereas, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. helped increase awareness of civil rights and expand citizen participation with his efforts and delivery of his “I Have a Dream” speech during the march on Washington in 1963; and

Whereas, Dr. King also led the march from Selma to Montgomery in Alabama with other civil right leaders to expand voting registration to those who were being disenfranchised and was met with criticism and force. Shortly after the March on Selma, President Johnson delivered a speech that called on Congress to pass a bill that would guarantee and protect the rights of minorities to vote in elections; and

Whereas, Senators Mike Mansfield (D-Montana) and Everett Dirksen (R-Illinois) introduced bi-partisan legislation in the United States Congress on March 17, 1965. The legislation moved quickly, passing in the United States Senate on May 26, 1965, and in the United States House of Representatives on July 9, 1965; and

Whereas, The United States Congress passed and President Johnson signed into law a bill to expand and protect voting rights of those who were being discriminated against on August 6, 1965; and

Whereas, The principles of voting rights are enforced by the federal government by outlawing discrimination in the democratic process through the elimination of literacy tests, need to be vouched for by another citizen, and duration residency requirements; and

Whereas, Current civil rights leaders and other members of the community continue to fight for amendments to the voting rights act to further guarantee that rights are protected; and

Whereas, Fifty years later, the Voting Rights Act is still an essential piece of legislation that has been renewed four times since its passing, most recently in 2006 and is set to expire in 2031; and

Whereas, The Voting Rights Act enables the Department of Justice to protect the rights of citizens from voter discrimination by providing election day monitors and language assistance for those who cannot read the ballots; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 on August 6, 2015. We honor its significance; and be it further

Resolved, That the Michigan House of Representatives will continue to protect the rights of voters in the state of Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That we recognize the great contributions and achievements of our government leaders and civil rights activists for encouraging participation in the democratic process and protecting voter rights.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Hughes, Sheppard, Crawford, Driskell, Heise, Hooker, Howrylak, Kelly, LaVoy, Maturen, Singh and Yanez offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 107.

A resolution to urge the United States Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, and Transportation Security Administration to address policies causing ongoing difficulty to veterans traveling with service animals, and encourage the review of these policies with the intent to promulgate clear directives.

Whereas, Our returning heroes deserve the highest level of care and access to care available. Service members face unique challenges after returning home and now, more than ever, veterans are returning home with invisible injuries; and

Whereas, Service animals have been utilized by individuals with a variety of disabilities to provide assistance, care, and comfort. Most recently, our returning veterans have found service animals to be exceptionally adept at mitigating the challenges associated with returning to civilian life; and

Whereas, Veterans who are paired with a service animal to assist in their rehabilitation and long-term care should not be faced with further barriers when traveling. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Code of Federal Regulations, a service animal should be permitted in any place where an individual with a disability needs to go, including on an airplane; and

Whereas, Numerous veterans have reported ongoing struggles navigating the complex and seemingly ever changing policies of commercial airline companies. Clear, concise, and uniform guidelines addressing how a veteran and their service animal navigate commercial airline travel are necessary; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge the United States Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, and Transportation Security Administration to review their policies and establish clear and concise regulations for veterans traveling with service animals; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the United States Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, Transportation Security Administration, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Military and Veterans Affairs.

Reps. Barrett, Somerville, Victory, Gamrat, Pscholka, Pettalia, Cox, Garcia, Webber, Leutheuser, Runestad, Aaron Miller, Iden, McCready, Glenn, Crawford, Driskell, Heise, Hooker, Howrylak, Kelly, LaVoy, Maturen, Pagan, Schor, Singh and Yanez offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 108.

A resolution to declare June 27, 2015, as Post Traumatic Stress Injury Awareness Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces, who proudly serve the United States, risk their lives to protect the freedom of the United States and deserve the investment of every possible resource to ensure their lasting physical, mental, and emotional well-being; and

Whereas, More than 2,000,000 United States service members have deployed as part of overseas contingency operations since the events of September 11, 2001; and

Whereas, The military has sustained an operational tempo for a period of time unprecedented in the history of the United States, with many service members deploying multiple times to combat zones, placing them at high risk of post traumatic stress injury (PTSI); and

Whereas, It is expected that ten thousand veterans will return to the state of Michigan every year for the next three to five years after spending a significant amount of time in combat environments, exposing thousands of soldiers to traumatic life threatening events; and

Whereas, The Department of Veterans Affairs reports that in fiscal year 2012, more than 500,000 veterans from all wars who sought care at a Department of Veterans Affairs medical center received treatment for PTSI; and

Whereas, PTSI significantly increases the risk of depression, suicide, and drug and alcohol related disorders and deaths; and

Whereas, The Department of Defense and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs have made significant advances in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of PTSI and the symptoms of PTSI. However, many challenges remain; and

Whereas, The establishment of a Michigan Post Traumatic Stress Injury Awareness Day will raise public awareness about issues related to PTSI; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare June 27, 2015, as Post Traumatic Stress Injury Awareness Day in the state of Michigan. We urge the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency and the Adjutant General to continue working to educate service members, veterans, the families of service members and veterans, and the public about the causes, symptoms, and treatment of post-traumatic stress injury; and be it further

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be transmitted to the Governor of the state of Michigan.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Military and Veterans Affairs.

Reps. Nesbitt, Crawford, Driskell, Heise, Howrylak, LaVoy, Maturen, Pagan, Singh and Yanez offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 109.

A resolution to declare July 5-11, 2015, as Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) Awareness Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is defined as an abnormal connection between arteries and veins which bypass the capillary system. AVM is a rare condition that affects approximately 300,000 American citizens. Although many AVMs are asymptomatic, they can cause intense pain or bleeding in addition to other serious medical problems; and

Whereas, This vascular anomaly is widely known because of its occurrence in the central nervous system, but it can appear in any location. It may also cause abnormal sensations such as numbness, tingling, or spontaneous pain; difficulties with movement or coordination, including muscle weakness and even paralysis; vertigo, difficulties of speech, communication, and challenges with everyday activities; and

Whereas, A team of researchers has initiated research on AVM with the goal of identifying a drug therapy to cure the disease. The objectives of this research include determining the mechanism of progression of AVM in humans, developing tools for testing potential pharmacotherapy, and developing drug treatment for humans with AVM; and

Whereas, The efforts of Kelleigh’s Cause, a not-for-profit organization founded by Kelleigh Gustafson, a 16-year-old girl originally from Haslett, Michigan, in conjunction with the Sparrow Hospital Foundation, have been instrumental in raising attention and funds to support the research and treatment of AVM in the state of Michigan; and

Whereas, There exists a great need for public awareness surrounding this rare condition and increased attention to efforts to support opportunities for advancement in AVM research and treatment; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare July 5-11, 2015, as Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) Awareness Week in the state of Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Sparrow Hospital Foundation, Kelleigh Gustafson, and Kelleigh’s Cause as a token of our appreciation.

______

Rep. Chirkun, having reserved the right to explain his protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

“Mr. Speaker and members of the House:

I voted against House Bills 4637-4641 because I believe they give an unfair and unjust advantage in the transportation marketplace to certain companies like Uber and Lyft at the expense of traditional taxi service companies. Companies like Uber and Lyft would receive preferential treatment in Michigan by requiring them to have a smaller amount of insurance coverage and meet less standards than traditional taxi services and also would require less insurance coverage for them to operate in Michigan than they do in other states. I also oppose these bills because I believe it hampers local control and the ability of local governments to enact ordinances that are best tailored to meet the needs of their specific geographical area. These bills create different standards for transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft to meet over traditional taxi companies, especially in how they operate at the local level.”

Rep. Driskell, having reserved the right to explain her protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

“Mr. Speaker and members of the House:

I applaud the entrepreneurial innovation and technology advances that have provided additional transportation options to our citizens. Unfortunately, this package of bills offers a set of incentives to only one or two companies who use one specific technology. We must maintain a level playing field to allow our free market to thrive.”

Rep. Chirkun, having reserved the right to explain his protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

“Mr. Speaker and members of the House:

I voted against House Bills 4637-4641 because I believe they give an unfair and unjust advantage in the transportation marketplace to certain companies like Uber and Lyft at the expense of traditional taxi service companies. Companies like Uber and Lyft would receive preferential treatment in Michigan by requiring them to have a smaller amount of insurance coverage and meet less standards than traditional taxi services and also would require less insurance coverage for them to operate in Michigan than they do in other states. I also oppose these bills because I believe it hampers local control and the ability of local governments to enact ordinances that are best tailored to meet the needs of their specific geographical area. These bills create different standards for transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft to meet over traditional taxi companies, especially in how they operate at the local level.”

Rep. Driskell, having reserved the right to explain her protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

“Mr. Speaker and members of the House:

I applaud the entrepreneurial innovation and technology advances that have provided additional transportation options to our citizens. Unfortunately, this package of bills offers a set of incentives to only one or two companies who use one specific technology. We must maintain a level playing field to allow our free market to thrive.”

Rep. Chirkun, having reserved the right to explain his protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

“Mr. Speaker and members of the House:

I voted against House Bills 4637-4641 because I believe they give an unfair and unjust advantage in the transportation marketplace to certain companies like Uber and Lyft at the expense of traditional taxi service companies. Companies like Uber and Lyft would receive preferential treatment in Michigan by requiring them to have a smaller amount of insurance coverage and meet less standards than traditional taxi services and also would require less insurance coverage for them to operate in Michigan than they do in other states. I also oppose these bills because I believe it hampers local control and the ability of local governments to enact ordinances that are best tailored to meet the needs of their specific geographical area. These bills create different standards for transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft to meet over traditional taxi companies, especially in how they operate at the local level.”
