Resolutions

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

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 10

Senate Resolution No. 105

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 20

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 21

Senate Resolution No. 153

Senate Resolution No. 149

The motion prevailed.

Senators Hertel, Ananich, Knezek, Young, Bieda and Conyers offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 189.

A resolution to call on Governor Snyder and the Michigan Department of Transportation to take action to end the work stoppage imposed by the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association so road work can be completed.

Whereas, In early September, construction work was halted on about 150 road projects around the state, affecting all major trunkline projects in some way. The Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association (MITA) imposed an “involuntary layoff” of Michigan road workers’ union Operating Engineers 324 from ongoing road projects throughout the state; and

Whereas, The union has over 14,000 members and had been working all summer without a contract, since their last agreement with MITA expired June 1. Operating Engineers leadership has indicated they are ready to get back on the job and finish road work; and

Whereas, Michigan roads are in poor shape overall and badly need repair and improvement. The work stoppage is risking the valuable time and safety of Michigan drivers. Road projects need to be finished and travel routes restored before construction season ends and winter sets in; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That Governor Snyder should continue to meet with all parties and facilitate talks so interrupted work on Michigan roads can be finished; and be it further

Resolved, That the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) should impose fines on contractors who fail to get workers back on the job and complete road projects in a timely manner, as outlined in their agreements; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to Governor Snyder and the Director of the Michigan Department of Transportation.

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 Transportation.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Warren was named co‑sponsor of the resolution.

Senator Colbeck offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 190.

A resolution to oppose efforts taking place in Washington, D.C., to preempt state and local property rights and authority by allowing the federal government to directly regulate the placement of 5G wireless infrastructure.

Whereas, Upgrading American wireless networks is a complex process requiring new technology, more commonly known as Fifth Generation technology, or 5G. Evolving microwave technology, such as 5G, uses different frequency and wavelengths than today’s standard technology. The deployment of 5G will require providers to deploy millions of new devices directly on utility poles and even neighborhood lamp poles. It is estimated that one 5G small cell antenna will be needed to cover every 10 houses, changing the nature and character of our neighborhoods; and

Whereas, Accommodating 5G devices on poles is much more complex than accommodating traditional wireline attachments, with unique safety and welfare considerations. Fifth Generation devices are often placed above the electric line and may create line worker safety hazards. Public utility poles have unique loading, clearance, and interference considerations that must be accounted for to ensure communities have electric reliability with the addition of 5G devices; and

Whereas, Local governments primarily regulate pole attachments and provide necessary oversight of permits and applications to ensure protection of public property, safety, and welfare. This system of regulation has served the public’s interests well and ensures a proper balance between costs and benefits to our communities; and

Whereas, The federal government is in the midst of taking actions that would severely restrict traditional state and local control. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has approved regulations for 5G wireless infrastructure that would preempt existing local regulation. The U.S. Congress is also considering S. 3157 that may impose restrictions on local government’s ability to regulate pole attachments; and

Whereas, Local regulations are designed to meet local needs. A top-down “one-size-fits-all” approach to pole attachment regulation does not address local constituent concerns. Michigan elected decision-makers are in the best position to determine what health, safety, and welfare regulations best serve their constituents. In Michigan, the state constitution puts the state legislature as being squarely responsible for the health and safety of its citizens. State and local officials can also hold open meetings to get valuable input to determine the best way to govern; and

Whereas, This ill-advised preemption by the federal government compromises local authority which has traditionally been celebrated in American policy and also puts the general public unacceptably at risk; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we urge the Congress of the United States to not support the preemption of local pole attachment regulation or pass S. 3157; and be it further

House Concurrent Resolution No. 26.

A concurrent resolution relative to secondary road patrol funds for counties providing road patrol services to cities and villages.

Whereas, Section 77 of 1846 RS 14, MCL 51.77, provides funding for county secondary road patrol services pursuant to an agreement with the Office of Criminal Justice, which, pursuant to Executive Order No. 1989-4, is now the Office of Highway Safety Planning within the Department of State Police. An agreement also provides a maintenance of law enforcement effort standard for counties providing these secondary road patrol services, unless it is recognized that the reduction was due to cuts in general services due to economic conditions; and

Whereas, Section 76 of 1846 RS 14, MCL 51.76, permits road patrol services to be provided by county sheriff departments to cities and villages. This section also provides that a road patrol agreement is void if the city or village reduces the number of sworn law enforcement officers below the highest number employed at any time within the immediately preceding 36 months, unless the Michigan Legislature, by concurrent resolution, recognizes that the reduction was due to cuts in general services due to economic conditions; and

Whereas, Section 77 of 1846 RS 14, MCL 51.77, provides a formula for funding county secondary road patrol services. This formula permits road patrol services provided by county sheriff departments to cities and villages to be eligible for secondary road patrol funding as long as the city or village complies with the MCL 51.76 law enforcement maintenance of effort requirement, unless any reduction is recognized to be due to cuts in general services due to economic conditions; and

Whereas, In all of Michigan’s counties, cities, and villages, general services have been reduced as a result of serious economic difficulties. These reductions in services have occurred in direct reaction to economic conditions; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That, for Fiscal Year 2019, counties, cities, and villages in Michigan have been required to reduce general services because of economic conditions and are not reducing law enforcement services as stipulated in section 76 or 77 of 1846 RS 14; and be it further

Resolved, That counties, cities, and villages have met the necessary terms of their agreements for road patrol services and secondary road patrol funding as they relate to maintenance of effort.

The House of Representatives has adopted the concurrent resolution.

Pending the order that, under rule 3.204, the concurrent 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.

Statements

Senators Knezek and Bieda 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:

I rise today to say goodbye to a member of my staff. Zoe has told me that she’s very hungry and only wants a picture, so I’m going to do my best to keep it right around ten minutes here.

It’s different when you have a staff member leave, as we all know. An intern may come into your office for a period of six months, maybe a year, but a staffer—somebody who’s with you day in and day out—is a completely different story. You’re really losing a member of your family at that point and the same can be said today as we get ready to say goodbye to Zoe Ahlstrom as she moves on to greener pastures.

I think she has a phenomenal story that brought her here to the state of Michigan—born in Texas; went to college in Kansas at Kansas State; studied in Turkey; came back; joined AmeriCorps; went to Nebraska, Iowa, and Idaho; and then moved to Michigan to work as an unpaid intern for State Representative Doug Geiss—the only person I think who would move to Michigan to work as an unpaid intern for State Representative Doug Geiss. I hope Doug sees that.

She moved on to State Representative Terry Brown, and we became friends through mutual friends here in town. When there was an opening in my office a couple years ago, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that Zoe was the person I wanted to hire in my office. I had seen her around town, I had seen her interact with people, and I had heard of the quality of work that she had done, but she did not make that process easy. It was a two-month period I had to go through to try to convince her to come over to our office. I had to finally tell her that I was getting ready to offer somebody else the job and then she decided that she was going to make the jump and come with us. That was over three years ago.

For the last three years, Zoe has served as my deputy chief of staff. She has been on the front lines every day in our office, making sure that we’re keeping consistent communication with our constituents—responding to issues that we have on a daily basis—and she provides that comedic relief that we sometimes need in a very stressful environment. I think, above all else, above all that she’s done as a member of our staff, above all that she’s done to serve the residents of the 5th District, more than all of that, Zoe has been an amazing friend to me.

I rise today, Zoe, not just to thank you for everything that you’ve done for the office, not just to thank you for everything you’ve done for my constituents, but to thank you for everything you’ve done for me, and to thank you for the friendship that we’ve had the last few years and to let you know that I’m really looking forward to the friendship that we can continue in the next few years as well. I would ask my colleagues to join me in thanking Zoe for her service to the state of Michigan and to wish her the best of luck as she moves forward.

Senator Bieda’s statement is as follows:

I rise today to acknowledge a very, very important anniversary that is going to occur this Sunday. November 11, 1918 saw the end of the Great War, World War I. We mark its centennial, as it lands on what used to be called Armistice Day, but is now, since 1954, referred to as Veterans Day. I wanted to rise for a minute to acknowledge and to memorialize those who lost their lives in the Great War, but also to thank all of those—not only in this room, but in this country and in this state—who served our country. I ask that we all rise in honor of Veterans Day and those who have served, but also in memory of those who died in the Great War, later to be called World War I.

A moment of silence was observed in memory of those who lost their lives during World War I.
