“Dear Almighty God,

We thank You for our lives today, for our health, and for the opportunity to serve the affairs of our beloved state of Michigan.

We ask that You would place Your Hand of blessing on the members of the House of Representatives.

Please grant each member the spirit of wisdom in selecting the best for Michigan. Grant the members the gift of listening and modesty to appreciate each other’s views and opinions.

Inspire our leaders with ideas and new approaches to increase the prosperity of those whom they represent. Grant each member talent with which to multiply their fruits.

May our actions and our attitudes please You this day.

May our conduct create an environment of cooperation and kindness.

We pray these things in Your Almighty Name. Amen.”

Motions and Resolutions

Reps. Cox, Chang, Cochran, Driskell, Heise, Hoadley, Hughes, LaVoy, Maturen, Pagan, Plawecki, Poleski, Sarah Roberts, Schor, Whiteford and Wittenberg offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 258.

A resolution to declare April 2016 as Sexual Assault Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Sexual Assault Awareness Month is intended to draw attention to the fact that sexual violence is widespread and impacts every community; and

Whereas, Sexual assault is broadly defined as any form of unwanted sexual contact obtained without consent through the use of force, threat of force, intimidation, or coercion; and

Whereas, Rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment impact our community as seen by statistics indicating that one in five women and one in 71 men will be raped at some point in their lives; and

Whereas, Child sexual abuse prevention must be a priority to confront the reality that one in six boys and one in four girls will experience a sexual assault before the age 18; and

Whereas, Michigan State Police statistics indicate that 11,873 sexual assault related offences were reported to law enforcement in 2013; and

Whereas, Sexual violence can deeply and enduringly impact survivors on psychological, emotional, and social levels; and

Whereas, Access to informed and supportive services can greatly increase survivors’ ability to heal from sexual assault; and

Whereas, Our state and individual communities must be committed to hold sexual assault perpetrators accountable for their heinous crimes; and

Whereas, We must work together to educate our community about sexual violence prevention, supporting survivors, and speaking out against harmful attitudes and actions; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare April 2016 as Sexual Assault Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Lane, Chang, Cochran, Driskell, Hoadley, Hovey-Wright, Hughes, LaVoy, Leutheuser, Maturen, Moss, Pagan, Plawecki, Sarah Roberts, Schor, Whiteford and Wittenberg offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 259.

A resolution to declare April 2016 as Autism Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, There are 1.5 million Americans living with the effects of autism spectrum disorder; and

Whereas, Autism is four times more likely to occur in boys than in girls; and

Whereas, Autism is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain, impacting development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills; and

Whereas, Autism knows no racial, ethnic, social boundaries, family income, lifestyle, or educational levels, and can affect any family and any child; and

Whereas, The demands of living with a person with autism are great and families frequently experience significant financial costs for specialized education and support services. The uniqueness of each individual with autism makes the experience of living with autism different for each family; and

Whereas, Autism is a lifelong condition and the necessary support and treatment changes as people on the spectrum move through major life phases. Their quality of life depends not only upon the foundation that is provided in childhood, but on ongoing supports that are specific to the educational, medical, social, recreational, family, and employment needs of the individual; and

Whereas, Early intervention services are the primary therapeutic option for young people with autism and that early intervention significantly improves the outcome for people with autism and can reduce the level of funding and services needed to treat people with autism later in life; and

Whereas, The Michigan Developmental Disabilities Council supports people with developmental disabilities, including those with autism, to achieve their life’s dreams and ensure that all citizens of Michigan have the opportunities and support to achieve their full potential; and

Whereas, New opportunities are being created through collaborative efforts of family members, professionals, and all levels of government to bring about significant changes in the public perception of young people and adults with developmental disabilities, including those with autism, opening new doors to independent and productive lives; and

Whereas, On March 23, 2007, Congress designated April as National Autism Awareness Month, supporting efforts to increase funding for research into the causes and treatment of autism and to improve training and support for individuals with autism and those who care for individuals with autism; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare April 2016 as Autism Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

Rep. Lane moved to substitute (H-1) the resolution as follows:

Substitute for House Resolution No. 259.

Whereas, There are 3.5 million Americans living with the effects of autism spectrum disorder; and

Whereas, Autism is four to five times more likely to occur in boys than in girls; and

Whereas, Autism is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain, impacting development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills; and

Whereas, Autism knows no racial, ethnic, social boundaries, family income, lifestyle, or educational levels, and can affect any family and any child; and

Whereas, The demands of living with a person with autism are great and families frequently experience significant financial costs for specialized education and support services. The uniqueness of each individual with autism makes the experience of living with autism different for each family; and

House Resolution No. 260.

A resolution to declare March 25, 2016, as Greek Independence Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The concept of democracy, in which the supreme power to govern was vested in the people, was developed by the ancient Greeks; and

Whereas, Our Greek American community enriches our economic and cultural development through its many contributions to science, technology, medicine, government, economics, architecture, and the arts; and

Whereas, Michigan is home to nearly 50,000 residents of Greek descent; and

Whereas, Greece and the United States have been allies through two World Wars, the Korean conflict, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and the Cold War; and

______

Rep. Hoadley, 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:

Although I agree with the intent of this bill, I have concerns about final judicial interpretation of the language if litigated in court. According to some legal opinions, ‘subsection (2)’s language could be construed broadly’ and ‘could be interpreted to insulate hospitals (and the others identified in subsection (2)) from any and all liability for “services rendered or not rendered by a caregiver,” even if the caregiver was acting at the hospital’s, employees’, consultants’, or contractors’ instruction, advice, or recommendation.’ We would never want a family to be denied justice due to a technical loophole this bill may create.”

Rep. Plawecki, 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:

While I applaud the efforts of Senator O’Brien to create protections for seniors, this bill would make providers immune from liability due to the very broad language which could be interpreted as insulating hospitals from any and all liability for ‘services rendered or not rendered by a caregiver’ even if the caregiver was acting at the hospital’s instructions provided by the hospital or it’s employee upon a patient’s discharge.”

Rep. Greig, 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 voted no on SB 352. While SB 352, the Designated Caregiver Act, addresses the need to name a lay caregiver to serve as a liaison and be trained for patient care, it creates potential liability disputes by exempting hospital workers from mistakes made by designated caregivers. The exemption however, does not protect against mistakes made by the hospital. In addition, the bill does not require written discharge instructions which can reduce the occurrence of said mistakes. For these reasons, I voted no on SB 352.”

Rep. Schor, 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 no on Senate Bill 352. The intent in passing Senate Bill 352, otherwise known as the CARE act, was to ensure better care of patients after discharge from a hospital. There is a real concern that we need to ensure family caregivers are given the information and preparation they need to care for their loved ones properly and safely. Additionally, SB 352 does not explicitly and directly change medical malpractice liability for hospitals if incorrect or inaccurate information is given to caregivers or patients upon discharge, the language of the statue is both flexible and subject to interpretation. If the language is construed broadly, it could be interpreted by courts to shield hospitals and their employees from liability for services rendered, or not rendered, by a caregiver, even if those services were at the advice or instruction of the hospital and its employees. We need family members to step up and care for their loved ones after a hospital stay, and we need to be cautious about limiting liability for erroneous instructions given to laypersons. For those reasons, I did not support the passage of SB 352.”

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

We need family members to step up and care for their loved ones after a hospital stay, and we need to be cautious about limiting liability for erroneous instructions given to laypersons.

Although I agree with the intent of this bill, I have concerns about final judicial interpretation of the language if litigated in court. According to some legal opinions, ‘subsection (2)’s language could be construed broadly’ and ‘could be interpreted to insulate hospitals (and the others identified in subsection (2)) from any and all liability for “services rendered or not rendered by a caregiver,” even if the caregiver was acting at the hospital’s, employees’, consultants’, or contractors’ instruction, advice, or recommendation.’ We would never want a family to be denied justice due to a technical loophole this bill may create.”

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

Rep. Robinson, 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:

The bill is redundant and the language is overly broad and vague. There are several criminal statutes that address assault.”

Rep. Brinks, 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:

No vote explanation for HB 4787 and HB 4830.

I voted against House Bills 4787 and 4830, otherwise known as the coercive abortion bills, because coercive abortion is already against the law. The law clearly defines informed consent and makes it illegal to force a woman to have an abortion against her will. These bills are, quite simply, redundant. The bills also do nothing to respect free will or the health and well-being of women across Michigan which is why I voted no.

Rep. Greimel, 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:

In 2012, I voted yes on HB 4798 and HB 4799, which were similar to HB 4787 and HB 4830. I did so because I am strongly opposed to any attempt to coerce a women to make any decision regarding her health and body. However, I am voting no on HB 4787 and HB 4830 because HB 4787 drastically and inappropriately broadens the definition of ‘coercion,’ while simultaneously making the definition more vague. HB 4787 does so by expanding the definition of ‘coercion’ to include how that term is defined ‘in section 462A.’ As a result, the bill defines coercion to include ‘… any pattern intended to cause an individual to believe that failure to perform an act would result in psychological … harm to … any individual.’ By this definition, any individual who has an honest conversation with a woman about that individual’s thoughts and views regarding the options available to the woman could be accused of ‘coercion’ if the conversation might be perceived to cause the woman emotional or psychological harm. This language is overly broad, could be exploited by overly zealous prosecutors, and could ultimately have a chilling effect on individuals’ First Amendment rights of free speech.”

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:

We can all agree that women should not be coerced into any decisions surrounding their pregnancies – neither to have an abortion nor to carry their pregnancies to term. Thankfully, however, we already have multiple laws on the books that address the issue, protecting women from coercion of this very kind. The informed consent law mandates that a woman’s consent to an abortion be given freely and without coercion. The aggravated stalking law makes such coercion illegal. And Elliot Larsen protects women from discrimination based on pregnancy-related actions. In fact, then- Rep. Rick Jones and the MI Legislature strengthened this bill in 2009 by adding workplace protections. This issue has already been addressed.

In addition to being redundant, this bill lacks clarity in its vagueness surrounding the definition of coercion. It could bring about unintended consequences, not only for women and their partners, but for their healthcare providers, who may be hesitant to serve women making these difficult decisions.

At the end of the day, we should all be able agree that we need to protect women from the larger issues here: domestic violence and abuse. These issues involve many types of coercion, including forcing a partner to become pregnant or carry a pregnancy. But this bill does nothing to address that issue. To really prevent pregnancy-related coercion, we need to include measures to protect women from the greater issues of domestic violence and abuse. My colleagues introduced a series of amendments to try to make this bill more comprehensive and protect women from more instances of domestic violence, abuse, and pregnancy-related coercion, but unfortunately they were not adopted.

Let’s take a step back and look at policies to address these larger issues.”

HB 4787 does so by expanding the definition of ‘coercion’ to include how that term is defined ‘in section 462A.’ As a result, the bill defines coercion to include ‘… any pattern intended to cause an individual to believe that failure to perform an act would result in psychological … harm to … any individual.’ By this definition, any individual who has an honest conversation with a woman about that individual’s thoughts and views regarding the options available to the woman could be accused of ‘coercion’ if the conversation might be perceived to cause the woman emotional or psychological harm. This language is overly broad, could be exploited by overly zealous prosecutors, and could ultimately have a chilling effect on individuals’ First Amendment rights of free speech.”

Rep. Poleski, 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:

Thank you for this opportunity to explain my No vote on HB 5407.

While I understand the motivations of the sponsor, I disagree with the premise that anyone who is otherwise qualified should be excluded from ballot consideration by citizens.

Recently, we have seen State Representatives in Districts 80 and 82 resign and be expelled. Following their resignation and expulsion, both Representatives ran for election to fill their unexpired terms. Under this bill, those former Representatives would have been barred from running for the offices they had recently vacated.

The voters in Districts 80 and 82 had a complete choice of candidates for Representative. I think the outcomes in those Districts show that current law works. Voters can make good choices, and we should not limit the slate of potential candidates who are otherwise qualified.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker, for this opportunity to explain my No vote on this Bill.”
