Pastor John Bailey, Pastor of Charlotte Church of Christ in Charlotte, offered the following invocation:

“Father God, Creator of all that we know, we invoke Your blessing upon this session of legislative work. These women and men are gathered to represent their constituencies in this process of governance and we ask that You grant them Your exceeding wisdom. Though faiths and beliefs may differ we recognize that they are here united in purpose with the best interest of the State firmly in hand. May their corporate talents, knowledge, and passions come together in ways not even imagined and be filled with a power that will impact the state of Michigan for the betterment of its citizens. By Your guidance help these servants to lift up Michigan as a leader in our country, a light which cannot be extinguished.

In this time of uncertainty when fear generates a sense of scarcity may they be used by You O Lord to alleviate the fear and replace it with an awareness of abundance. In this Lord may the legislators not affect only the thinking of the people but may they also reach their hearts. May it be known that this House is one of compassion and concern reflecting both the constraints and liberty created by their character. We ask Lord that You enable the representatives to weld great influence that results in changes within the populace. Where there is cynicism it is exchanged for hope, tentativeness is given into trust, obstruction gives way to progress, where talk translates into action, and division moves to unity.

In faith we yield to You for the outcomes. We trust that You will honor the efforts of those gathered here today and bless the work that they perform so there will be no hesitation in giving You thanks and praise for what is accomplished.

It is in the name of Jesus we ask this of You.

Amen.”

Motions and Resolutions

Reps. Moss, Wittenberg, Schor, Callton, Cochran, Crawford, Driskell, Faris, Franz, Geiss, Greig, Hovey-Wright, Howrylak, Hughes, Jenkins, LaFontaine, Lauwers, LaVoy, Leutheuser, Liberati, Maturen, Pagan, Phelps, Plawecki, Pscholka, Sarah Roberts, Singh, Tedder, Theis, Webber, Whiteford and Yanez offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 283.

A resolution to declare May 4, 2016, as Holocaust Remembrance Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The Holocaust was the state-sponsored systematic persecution and annihilation of European Jewry by Nazi Germany and its collaborators during the years 1933 through 1945, resulting in the extermination of six million Jews and their potential decedents; and

Whereas, The world’s Jewish population was reduced by one-third. Poland, home to the largest Jewish community before World War II, lost 90 percent of its Jewish population. Greece, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Lithuania, Bohemia, the Netherlands, Slovakia and Latvia each lost more than 70 percent of their Jewish population; and

Whereas, Millions more suffered grievous oppression and death under Nazi tyranny based on their religion, including Catholic priests, Christian pastors, and Jehovah’s Witnesses; their national origin, including Poles, Soviets, Ukrainians and Sorbs; their ethnicity and culture, including the Romani people; their political beliefs, including courageous resisters and government dissidents; their physical appearance, including those with disabilities; and their sexual orientation and gender identity; and

Whereas, The horror of the Holocaust should never be forgotten and shall serve as a painful reminder of the international community’s failure to protect the innocent and oppressed; and

Whereas, Even when the goodness of mankind was in question, there were individuals who selflessly risked their lives in order to save others from the evils of Nazi Germany; and

Whereas, The history of the Holocaust offers an opportunity to reflect on the moral responsibilities of individuals, societies, and governments; and serves as an important reminder of what can happen to civilized people when bigotry, hatred, and indifference reign; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare May 4, 2016, as Holocaust Remembrance Day in the state of Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That in honor of the victims of the Holocaust, the survivors, and their liberators, the citizens of Michigan should reflect upon the terrible events of the Holocaust and strive to overcome intolerance and indifference through learning and remembrance.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Guerra, Singh, Hovey-Wright, Chirkun, Durhal, Zemke, Greimel, Plawecki, Cochran, Driskell, Faris, Greig, Howrylak, LaVoy, Liberati, Pagan, Phelps, Sarah Roberts, Schor, Wittenberg and Yanez offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 284.

A resolution to declare April 28, 2016, as Workers’ Memorial Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Every year on April 28, communities and worksites around the world honor friends, family members, and colleagues who have been killed or injured on the job; and

Whereas, The Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics found that 4,679 workers were killed by traumatic injuries in the United States in 2014. On average, 12 workers were killed on the job every day; and

Whereas, In 2014, 138 workers were lost through fatal workplace accidents in Michigan; and

Whereas, It is appropriate to honor the memory of the courageous and dedicated members of Michigan’s labor force who have been injured or disabled or have died as a result of workplace accidents; and

Whereas, We remember those who have died in workplace catastrophes, suffered occupational-related diseases, or have been injured due to dangerous conditions; and

Whereas, Recognition of the integrity of Michigan’s work force and its achievements on behalf of the economic growth of our state is necessary; and

Whereas, The House of Representatives wishes to pay tribute to the workers who have died or been injured or disabled in workplace accidents. We honor the contributions of Michigan’s work force and call for increased workplace safety; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare April 28, 2016, as Workers’ Memorial Day in the state of Michigan.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

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

Whereas, The Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics found that 4,679 workers were killed by traumatic injuries in the United States in 2014. On average, 12 workers were killed on the job every day; and

Rep. Theis, 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 medically frail who pose no threat to society and have need of care that cannot be suitably provided in the traditional system are more appropriately treated in a specialty facility. If, however, we are circumventing the traditional corrections process, the parole hearing should be a public meeting with the option for the public to know the reasoning. It should be a requirement of the individual to waive his HIPPA rights in order to be considered for this parole, and the reasoning for the decision be publicly noticed.”
