Resolutions

Senator Kowall moved that consideration of the following resolutions be postponed for today:

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 10

House Concurrent Resolution No. 3

Senate Resolution No. 30

The motion prevailed.

Senators Rocca and Ananich offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 104.

A resolution recognizing October 8-14, 2017, as Fire Prevention Week.

Whereas, Last year, home fires killed more than 91 Michigan citizens, and according to the National Fire Incident Reporting System, fire departments throughout the state responded to 12,063 home fires in 2016; and

Whereas, Families today have a much smaller window of time to escape a home fire safely. It can take as little as two minutes or less to escape from the time the smoke alarm sounds due to newer homes burning faster and toxic gases and smoke being produced by today’s building materials; and

Whereas, A home fire escape plan provides the skill set and know-how to quickly and safely escape a home fire situation; and

Whereas, Families are urged to develop and map out a home fire escape plan that includes two exits from every room in the home, a path to the outside from each exit, and designated meeting place; and

Whereas, Michigan’s first responders are dedicated to reducing the occurrence of home fires and home fire injuries through prevention, protection and education so families can take personal steps to increase their safety from fire in their homes; and

Whereas, The 2017 Fire Prevention Week theme, “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out” effectively serves to educate the public about the vital importance of developing a home fire escape plan; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That October 8-14, 2017, be recognized as Fire Prevention Week; and be it further

Resolved, That the members of this legislative body urge the people of Michigan to develop a home fire escape plan with all members of the household and practice it twice a year; and be it further

Resolved, That the people of Michigan participate in the many public safety activities and efforts of their community’s fire and emergency services during Fire Prevention Week 2017.

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

Senator Kowall moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The resolution was adopted.

Senators Bieda, Booher, Brandenburg, Conyers, Green, Hansen, Knollenberg, MacGregor, Proos, Schuitmaker and Zorn were named co‑sponsors of the resolution.

Senator Casperson offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 105.

A resolution to support scientifically-based state management of gray wolves and memorialize the Congress of the United States to enact legislation that removes the western Great Lakes gray wolf population from the endangered and threatened species list.

Whereas, Gray wolves have made a remarkable recovery from near extinction and are no longer endangered in Michigan. From only a handful of wolves in the late 1980s, Michigan’s gray wolf population has grown over the last thirty years to more than 600 animals; and

Whereas, Based on objective scientific criteria, Michigan’s wolf population has met all federal recovery goals for delisting both in terms of number of wolves and the stability of those numbers. For nearly twenty years, Michigan’s gray wolf population has exceeded the number of wolves biologists consider necessary to maintain a healthy population within the state. For more than five years, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula has maintained a gray wolf population at least three times the recovery goal; and

Whereas, Federal courts have disregarded the judgment of United States Fish and Wildlife Service scientists and multiple times in the last decade overturned the removal of the western Great Lakes population of gray wolves from the federal endangered and threatened species list; and

Whereas, The extreme protection afforded gray wolves under the federal Endangered Species Act prevents sound management in Michigan. Gray wolves increasingly impact other wildlife and encroach on farms and developed areas, endangering people, livestock, and pets. The federal law was designed to bring back species from the brink of extinction, not manage the complicated interactions between people and a large predator population; and

Whereas, Michigan is well prepared to manage gray wolves. The state of Michigan has developed a scientifically based management plan that will continue to maintain a healthy gray wolf population while allowing for more flexibility when conflicts between people and wolves arise; and

Whereas, It is long past time for the management of the gray wolf population to be returned to state control. The federal courts have developed an unreasonable interpretation of the Endangered Species Act that infringes on this state’s rights to manage wildlife and leaves little recourse but for Congress to step in; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we support scientifically-based state management of gray wolves and memorialize the Congress of the United States to enact legislation that removes the western Great Lakes gray wolf population from the endangered and threatened species list; 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.

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

Senator Kowall moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

Senator Kowall moved that the resolution be referred to the Committee on Natural Resources.

The motion prevailed.

Senators Booher, Brandenburg, Green, Hansen, MacGregor, Proos and Zorn were named co‑sponsors of the resolution.
