Father God, as we come before Your throne of grace, we give You honor, glory, and respect as our Creator and Provider. It is You who is omnipresent; You are everywhere, Lord. It is You who is omnipotent; You have all power. It is You who is omniscient, for You know everything.

Lord God, as the great state of Michigan’s governors and leaders and as each district begins to perform their duties and responsibilities, let them be reminded why they are more than just public leaders—that they are servants, and that You have chosen them to serve in prospective districts. You, God, have given unto them throughout the great state of Michigan. As they serve, Father God, let them serve You and Your people with dignity and honor, always doing what is right and good for Your people. Let them serve with a smile and a clean heart. Help them, O God, to accomplish Your goals while displaying Your character. We are asking for Your blessings on our leaders today, and may these servants who are in positions of authority take the responsibility seriously as they do their very best each day. Please, Lord, let them recognize the need for Your direction. May they hear Your voice and follow Your guidance. May they have a passion for Your people, for truth, and for Your righteousness.

Lord, we lift up our state—our leaders—as we ask You to bless them with Your wisdom, Your love, and Your compassion.

We ask all these things in Jesus Christ’s mighty name. Amen.

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

Protests

Senators Bieda, Young, Warren, Hood and Gregory, under their constitutional right of protest (Art. 4, Sec. 18), protested against concurring in the House substitute for Senate Bill No. 897.

Senators Bieda, Young and Warren moved that the statements they made during the discussion of the bill be printed as their reasons for voting “no.”

The motion prevailed.

Senator Bieda’s statement is as follows:

I rise to offer my “no” vote explanation for Senate Bill No. 897, a bill that amounts to a twisted social experiment that will rob thousands of Michiganders of basic health care.

My colleagues across the aisle and the sponsor of this catastrophic legislation have repeatedly claimed that this bill will save taxpayers money, but in reality it only serves to kick people off of Medicaid. Let me make this clear. This has nothing to do with saving taxpayer dollars. Absolutely nothing.

Now, I may not be a mathematician, but those are about the same rates of return as Ponzi scheme artists like Bernie Madoff offered their clients. You can’t put these falsehoods out there and expect people to really believe them. This program is not about keeping people from working. That would be a lie.

We were not elected to pull health care programs that lift people right out from under them. Let me repeat, every Michigander deserves access to basic health care. I cannot support policy that tells taxpayers they need to pay $30 million to deny their neighbors, friends, and family access to the most basic health care, in turn driving up the cost of programs that address illnesses that could have been prevented. I promise you, the cost to taxpayers will amount to more than the $30 million when you take that into account. Why are we wasting time and taxpayer time and taxpayer money on a proposal like this?

Thirty million dollars could go a long way toward school funding or fixing our roads—problems which have only gotten much worse during this decade of missed opportunities. If you want a good return on taxpayer dollars, how about investing in our schools and infrastructure? How about investing in programs that create jobs? But instead, you take an action that is tantamount to lighting $30 million on fire, all so you can feel like you socked it to Michiganders down on their luck or a family struggling to make ends meet.

In my years as a legislator, I’ve never seen money thrown away and wasted so carelessly. I cannot and will not be part of this appalling act.

Senator Young’s statement is as follows:

Colleagues, I rise to offer my “no” vote on the draconian requirements supported by my Republican colleagues in Senate Bill No. 897. This legislation imposes requirements far more stringent than the current statute. To the good people of Michigan, do not be fooled. These Republican-backed requirements will hurt thousands of Michigan families living paycheck to paycheck and struggling to make ends meet.

Now, my Republican colleagues are prepared to deliver this blow and tell them that they must meet requirements that they see fit, and giving them no choice but to meet increasingly difficult health requirements, and pay a premium 48 months later that cannot be reduced in the event of an extenuating circumstance—as even the federal government allows for people paying back debt such as student loans.

It also has the potential to end Healthy Michigan—to end Healthy Michigan. End it completely if a new or amended waiver is not approved in 12 months. I say to my colleagues across the aisle, how would you like it if I told you today, “Hey, I know you’re working, I know you’re making every attempt to feed your family, pay your heating bill, afford skyrocketing insurance for your car, and oh yeah, we’re going to rip your healthcare away from you unless you can hit every single one of these new requirements.”?

This legislation is a twisted joke. Even with all the changes this legislation has made in the chamber down the hall, it is still a turd. A shiny turd, but still a turd nonetheless. It’s embarrassing. It’s shameful. It’s deplorable. It’s inhumane. This is wrong, and I urge all of you—if you have a conscience for your family, your friends, your neighbors, and the people who elected you to their best interests to represent their best interests and look out for them—to vote “no” on this bill.

I’m going to say this in conclusion, Madam President, in my district I have folks whose job it is to get a job, and they go from job application to job application to job application to job application, and all that they are relying on for them to survive—or their family members to survive—is Medicaid. For us to break that solemn promise, and that agreement that if you work hard and play by the rules and do right, you can achieve your dreams as an American. For us to get rid of the social safety net which buttresses that promise, I think it’s absurd and I think it is wrong and I think it is careless.

A majority of people in this state who have Medicaid are the working poor, and they can’t afford to go to the hospital. In this country, one out of five African Americans do not go to the hospital because of costs. This is something that actually helps people who are poor and who are disabled be able to get the medical treatment they need. For us to do this to them, I think is wrong and I think is beyond the pale, and I urge all my colleagues to vote this bill down.

Senator Warren’s statement, in which Senators Hood and Gregory concurred, is as follows:

I rise to give my “no” vote explanation on Senate Bill No. 897.

As I think most of you are aware, I was a strong supporter of Healthy Michigan and Medicaid expansion from the onset. This is because I truly believe that health care is a human right. A right of all of our citizens, not the privilege of those who can afford it or those who can meet a certain set of requirements, the right of all of our citizens. But, I also supported Healthy Michigan because I know that the evidence demonstrates that expanding health care access works. It saves money because it’s cheaper to treat minor concerns than major health crises. It improves people’s wellbeing because everybody is better off when they have the ability to get the care they need. And access to health care helps get people to work and stay at work because it’s awfully hard to show up for work and be your best self when you’re sick or in pain.

While I do appreciate the changes that were made to this bill since it was first introduced, no amount of exemptions or allowances would be enough to make this bill something I could support. By predicating the ability to participate in the Healthy Michigan program on the number of hours a person works, we’re moving in exactly the wrong direction. We’re enacting a system that is not designed to keep people healthy. It’s not designed to put people to work. It’s not designed to keep them at work. It’s just designed to keep them from accessing health care.

Unless and until we truly tackle the challenges of childcare access, transportation, job training, and work placement—and so much more—then we are setting some people in this state—our most vulnerable citizens, we’re setting them up—to fail.

It is for this reason that I will be voting “no” today and that I encourage all my colleagues to do the same.

Protests

Senators Ananich, Hertel, Gregory and Bieda, under their constitutional right of protest (Art. 4, Sec. 18), protested against the passage of Senate Bill Nos. 684 and 685.

Senator Ananich moved that the statement he made during the discussion of Senate Bill No. 684 be printed as his reasons for voting “no.”

The motion prevailed.

Senator Ananich’s statement, in which Senators Hertel, Gregory and Bieda concurred, is as follows:

I would first like to take a moment to thank both sponsors because of their years of experience in K-12 schools and all their experience in career counseling and all those things, oh, wait a minute. These individuals have no experience in that. Maybe it’s time that we actually listen to people who work in education before we mandate things that they’re supposed to do.

For someone who has actually implemented an education development plan, I think one of the things we need to do before we mandate more to this plan is actually look at the environment in our state. I’m not sure if this is lost on anyone here, but yesterday we sent a very strong message to people who work in the construction trades—that their work has no value, that the training that’s the best in the world is irrelevant, that the health care they provide through their employers is no longer necessary, that these low-wage jobs that many of these individuals who need Medicaid as opposed to private-sector health insurance will no longer be necessary.

I’m going to talk about something in Senate Bill No. 685: discussion with school counselors. We have one of the worst ratios of school counselors in the country. We’ve done nothing to address that. How are they going to talk to them? They don’t exist. All they do is give people schedules. If we really want to get serious about the talent gap, we should make sure we have jobs in this state that pay a wage that’s worth training for. We have college that’s unattainable because of the debt they have to get. We have training programs that lead to no jobs. And now we say if you get up in the morning and you work hard during the week, you don’t deserve to get paid well. As you look at other states, we don’t even save taxpayers any money when we do it. I think it sends a pretty strong message to folks that mandating something that really doesn’t exist—that they really don’t have time to do in the middle of the day—sounds like we’re doing something, but it really is just fluff. I think the people of Michigan should be tired of the fluff that happens in here.

I would encourage anyone who is serious about talent development to put these bills where they belong: in the garbage.

The Senate agreed to the title of the bill.

Senator Bieda moved that his name be removed as co‑sponsor of the bill.

The motion prevailed.

Protest

Senator Hood, under his constitutional right of protest (Art. 4, Sec. 18), protested against the passage of Senate Bill No. 787 and moved that the statement he made during the discussion of the bill be printed as his reasons for voting “no.”

The motion prevailed.

Senator Hood’s statement is as follows:

I commend the Senator from the 24th District and his efforts in what he’s trying to accomplish here and it looks like he will accomplish what he’s trying to do.

I’m going to say it like this: I don’t think it’s going to actually get to that because, as was indicated, there’s no guarantees, and he did indicate how it would save, but there’s no portion in here that says the insurance companies have to abide by this. There’s nothing saying that they could reduce the rate by 10, 15, 20, or 30 percent, and then two days later or a year later raise your premium by 10, 20, or 30 percent, and so the insurance companies would actually be the winner in this because they only have $50,000 in coverage but they’ll still be charging you the same amount. That potentially could happen.

As far as not being able to get something through the House of Representatives, well, that’s been a problem since the Legislature was born. That’s why you have two bodies and a Governor that you have to work with—and I emphasize and capitalize and underline the word “work”—instead of taking, as I would consider this, the easy way out by doing something just to get by—let’s get something done, let’s just piecemeal it and put it together. Why not get our hands dirty and finally get some work done? If you need some help, I’m sure there are some folks on this side of the aisle who will come over and help if you would allow us, but a lot of times, we’re not allowed even in the room when there is legislation being formed. Let’s finally come together and work together and not just say, “well, we’re going to put something together,” but you haven’t done the damn work—excuse me, Madam President.

Let’s do the work. Let’s go over there and talk to the House. Let’s talk to the Governor’s office. We saw legislation that came through this body this week that was hard to get through on some folks’ standards. But they worked it out. There was a bill that the sponsor indicated that he had been working on since he got in the Legislature. But he worked it out and got it done. Why don’t we put our gloves on and go to work instead of just saying, “oh well, this is the only thing we can get” because somebody across the building doesn’t like this, or somebody’s got a beef with this person, or somebody doesn’t agree with that person. Why don’t we start working to try to get it done, because this here offers absolutely nothing.

Fifty thousand dollars of coverage, OK, so it goes to Medicaid and Medicare. Who pays for Medicaid and Medicare? We do. If they still have insurance through their jobs and if that’s insufficient, it moves on to Medicaid and Medicare. If it’s at their job, their premiums go up, but ultimately all it is is passing cost onto somebody else. That’s actually what it is, because somebody is going to pay for the rest of that. If it costs $300,000 for a procedure and you’re only covered for $50,000, who pays for the other $250,000? Do you think that $250,000 just goes away? No, it doesn’t. It doesn’t. Somebody is going to pay for it. So, the smoke and mirrors just doesn’t work for me.

Again, I appreciate what the sponsor is doing, but I’d like to get our hands dirty and let’s get it really done and not say this is the only thing we can get done because, you know, whatever. Let’s get some real reform done. Let’s talk about why, as Senator Young talked about earlier, let’s get some real stuff. Let’s talk about why the rates are so high, not just look at this. Why are the rates so high? We’re trying to get lower rates but we’re not taking care of the problem. You’re perfuming a pig.

With that, I would like for this to be my “no” vote explanation and I think that we should really get down and really start doing some work on why our rates are high. We had this discussion, what was it, last year. There are a lot of factors that are in there. I’ve got a bill right now that says that your insurance can only be on three factors: your driving record, your claims history, and the cost to replace that vehicle. Only three, and then that is fair across the state. Nobody gets unfair rates and nobody gets charged unfairly, it’s just a fair thing, fixed across the board. But this here is not it. It’s a great thing to start a conversation on and I appreciate it, but it’s not it.

I would ask for everyone to vote “no” on this and then the second that we turn this piece of legislation down, I am willing to work with anyone and everyone to get to the real resolution, including the sponsor of the legislation, and anybody else, the insurers, everybody else, the health care industry, everybody. We all need to get together, roll up our sleeves, and get the job done.

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Knezek’s statement is as follows:

My amendment would tie-bar Senate Bill No. 787 to my legislation—Senate Bill No. 972—that seeks to eliminate the process of redlining here in the state of Michigan when it comes to our auto insurance rates.

When I have my coffee hours throughout Detroit and Dearborn Heights, Garden City, Inkster, and Redford Township, my residents are overwhelmingly in support of the notion that their driving records should reflect, in some way shape or form, when it comes to setting their rates. What they don’t agree with is their age, their zip code, their credit score, their gender, or any other non-driving-related factor, going into the setting of that rate.

What we’ve seen in my community is the process of redlining disproportionately affecting minority communities, communities of color, and then that bleeds out into the suburbs as well where we’re paying rates three or four times higher than that of, for example, someone in St. Clair County.

Madam President, I simply seek today to tie-bar this bill to Senate Bill No. 972, my bill that would eliminate the process of redlining here in the state of Michigan.

Senator Ananich’s statement is as follows:

My amendment requires a guarantee of 10 percent savings for seniors who opt to cap their coverage at $50,000. If this is a real bill, let’s make sure there’s real savings.

In my efforts to guarantee savings for consumers, I was threatened with the elimination of funding for my community. Saving 10 percent is such a no-brainer that the majority couldn’t risk the votes in support. Rather than allow this amendment on, they used an unrelated budget item to attempt to leverage me to abandon my constituents.

I do not operate that way. I am shocked that you do.

The following bill was read a third time:

The motion prevailed.

Senator Bieda’s statement is as follows:

I rise today to offer an amendment to this bill that I think will safeguard both insurers and the insured.

Currently, the legislation before seeks to weed out fraud on the insured side, which is a good thing, but it does nothing to look at fraud committed by the insurance industry itself, which you might say is a little one-sided. My amendment would require the fraud authority created under this legislation to look into all kinds of insurance fraud. Taxpayer dollars should protect taxpayers. That means working on their behalf to find fraud committed by everybody.

Look, this chamber has a history of vilifying and demonizing everyday Michiganders, and it’s one of the reasons distrust in government is probably at its all-time high. But this state has a history of falsely accusing Michiganders for following the rules. For example, when the Unemployment Insurance Agency falsely accused more than 40,000 people of fraud, state officials rushed to prove how rampant fraud was within the system. Unfortunately, after closer inspection, the real fraud was committed by the Unemployment Insurance Agency itself.

Colleagues, this is a simple amendment that protects both insurers and the insured. I urge you to support this amendment to provide the same protections to taxpayers in your district that it does to big insurance companies.

By unanimous consent the Senate proceeded to the order of

Statements

Senator Bieda asked and was granted unanimous consent to make a statement and moved that the statement be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Bieda’s statement is as follows:

Colleagues, I rise today to offer a recap from a vote that this chamber took on prevailing wage yesterday. Its repeal comes with stories and some real consequences, and I’ve heard one that I wanted to share with all of you.

I recently heard from a friend who had met a 19-year-old young man from Detroit named Curtis. He was obviously a very smart young man, but he unfortunately got in trouble a few times with the law as a teenager. Now that record stuck with him, but he was eager to beat the system that was holding him back. His interest was in carpentry, and he signed up for an apprenticeship program. He bought $200 worth of start-up tools he needed and learned the basics of building a house. He loved it, and he will officially start school in July at a training center located in Ferndale.

While in school, he’ll make a meager $13 per hour while he’s studying to learn the necessary skills, but he has health care, a pension, and a future. After four long years of learning and perfecting dozens and dozens of different skills, safety rules, mathematics, and procedures, he will graduate making north of $30 per hour and will be on his way to a secure retirement by the age of 60. He will have the dignity of knowing that he worked hard to earn his living, and he will be proud.

Unfortunately, the majority party in our state Legislature darkened his future yesterday. They repealed a law that recognized the value of a four-year program that teaches great and necessary skills. They slashed wages, training programs, and a hope for future carpenters and other skilled trade workers. Now, anyone who just learned what a hammer was yesterday, will be able to build our schools and bridges today. They will never be able to lift their families out of poverty. Not one Democrat voted to repeal the prevailing wage law, and nearly every Republican did. Colleagues, we are going in the wrong direction—into the ground—just like the structures that will now be built with cheap labor. People who want to work hard and carve out a life for themselves are just another casualty in this decade of missed opportunities.

So when you leave today, please remember Curtis and all the other hard-working people who are left to live paycheck to paycheck in our state and our country. Please remember them now, but please remember them in the future.
