In The Chair: President

The recommendation was concurred in, 2/3 of the members serving voting therefor.

Pursuant to Joint Rule 20, the full title of the act shall be inserted to read as follows:

“An act to regulate the ownership, possession, and care of certain large carnivores; to prohibit the ownership and possession of certain large carnivores; to impose fees; to prescribe the powers and duties of certain governmental entities and officials and of certain veterinarians; and to prescribe penalties and provide remedies,”.

The Senate agreed to the full title.

Protest

Senator Bieda, under his constitutional right of protest (Art. 4, Sec. 18), protested against the passage of House Bill No. 5778 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 Bieda’s statement is as follows:

I’m rising to offer my “no” vote explanation for House Bill No. 5778.

You know, when I woke up yesterday morning, the last thing I thought I’d be dealing with at nearly 1 o’clock in the morning on Wednesday was the regulation of frisky cougars. Legislation like this reminds me of the frustration our constituents have with governmental bureaucracy. Rather than simply fixing a typo in the current law, proponents of this legislation have taken it upon themselves to rewrite the intent of that law.

Let me remind my colleagues that we already have a tough-enough time ensuring proper breeding practices with cats and dogs. We have owners who lose their pets when they get loose from their cage or wrangle free from their collars. Large carnivores are no different and, if anything, they are worse because they are exotic and not domestic animals. And now, some in this chamber want to let almost anyone who can meet some very minimal, arbitrary requirements breed some of the most dangerous animals in the world and not for conservation purposes either.

Meanwhile, three of the state’s five zoos accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums have already stated that they are against this legislation. These are top-notch zoos and are known across the world for their work in animal conservation. We should listen to the professional zoologists who have warned that this legislation has the potential to create dangerous situations. For example, if a breeder accidentally left when the cage is open, he could easily end up with a Jumanji-like situation with animals running around neighborhoods and our schools. In fact, that was a tragic case in Ohio in 2011 where 56 large exotic carnivores escaped from a private zoo, terrorizing a town for days, until 49 were killed and the rest were captured.

Our accredited Michigan zoos already responsibly care for and conserve our endangered species. So, before you vote remember the famous quote from The Wizard of Oz: “Lions and tigers and bears. Oh my.” Let’s be cautious on this.

I ask my colleagues to leave the management of these magnificent animals to the expert zoologists and I urge you to vote “no” on this bill.

The following bill was read a third time:

House Bill No. 6269, entitled

A bill to amend 1994 PA 451, entitled “Natural resources and environmental protection act,” by amending sections 11502, 11503, 11504, 11505, 11509, 11510, 11512, 11513, 11515, 11516, 11518, 11523, 11523a, 11523b, 11525, 11525a, 11525b, 11528, 11538, 11539, 11542, and 11550 (MCL 324.11502, 324.11503, 324.11504, 324.11505, 324.11509, 324.11510, 324.11512, 324.11513, 324.11515, 324.11516, 324.11518, 324.11523, 324.11523a, 324.11523b, 324.11525, 324.11525a, 324.11525b, 324.11528, 324.11538, 324.11539, 324.11542, and 324.11550), sections 11502, 11503, 11504, 11505, and 11542 as amended by 2014 PA 178, sections 11509, 11512, and 11516 as amended by 2004 PA 325, section 11510 as amended by 1998 PA 397, sections 11523, 11523a, 11525, and 11525b as amended by 2013 PA 250, section 11523b as added by 1996 PA 359, section 11525a as amended by 2015 PA 82, section 11538 as amended by 2004 PA 44, and section 11550 as amended by 2003 PA 153, and by adding sections 11511a, 11512a, 11519a, 11519b, and 11519c.

Protests

Senators Ananich, Hood, Conyers, Hertel, Young, Hollier, Bieda and Gregory, under their constitutional right of protest (Art. 4, Sec. 18), protested against the approval of the gubernatorial appointments.

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

The motion prevailed.

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

I rise to offer my “no” vote explanation.

I do hope that some of these appointments last more than 24 hours but with this vote, we are talking about some of the appointments that will last until 2024. Think about that. In 2024, none of us in this chamber, except Senator Hollier, will still be here. Sorry, it’s 1 o’clock in the morning. In 2024, the Governor will be in her second term. In 2024, the President will be in the last days of his second term, or more likely, as far as I’m concerned, two years removed from the presidency. And the individuals we’re appointing to the Mackinac Bridge Authority, the Mackinac Straits Corridor Authority, and the Local Community Stabilization Authority, to name just a few, will still be in their seats.

To make matters worse, we’re wrapping these into one vote. I am voting “no” because these commissions and committees do really important work and you and I both know they’re just cramming this through to prevent our new Governor from having a say. This is an attempt to give our outgoing Governor a dead hand to control government long after he’s out of office and a new Governor has been elected by the people.

I continue to reject the “we-know-better” approach we have been taking with these appointments and a number of other issues in this lame-duck.

Senate Resolution No. 219.

A resolution of tribute for the Honorable Dave Hildenbrand.

Whereas, It is a pleasure to extend this expression of thanks to Senator Dave Hildenbrand as he brings to a close his tenure with the Michigan Senate. In these past eight years, he has shown tremendous dedication and commitment to the Twenty-ninth District and this body; and

Whereas, Dave Hildenbrand joined the Senate in 2011 with extensive experience in legislative governance. Prior to his election to the Michigan House of Representatives in 2004, where he served three terms and ascended to the position of Minority Floor Leader, the Michigan State University graduate was appointed chief of staff to Senator Bill Hardiman and deputy chief of staff to Lieutenant Governor Dick Posthumus. Senator Hildenbrand also served as an agriculture policy advisor to Governor John Engler. Dave Hildenbrand is an active member of the Lowell community having worked with organizations like Habitat for Humanity, the YMCA, 4-H, Right to Life of Michigan, the Kent County Farm Bureau, and Moose Lodge 809; and

Whereas, For eight years, Senator Hildenbrand has served with great distinction, putting his expertise and leadership to good use. He was appointed chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee in 2015, having previously served on numerous committees including as vice chair of the Economic Development, Government Operations, and Outdoor Recreation and Tourism committees. As a result of his steady leadership and work, Michigan’s veterans’ homes are being modernized; the homestead property tax credit has been made simpler for disabled veterans; law enforcement agents have the tools needed to help address the state’s synthetic drug problem; and Michiganders can donate to the Amber Alert Fund on their state income tax returns. His keen understanding of the legislative and budget processes has earned him the esteem of colleagues and staff alike; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we offer this expression of tribute to commend and thank the Honorable Dave Hildenbrand for his notable contributions to this legislative body and to our state; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to Senator Hildenbrand as evidence of our gratitude and best wishes.

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 by a unanimous standing vote of the Senate.

Senator Kowall moved that rule 3.204 be suspended to name the entire membership of the Senate and the Lieutenant Governor as co‑sponsors of the resolution.

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

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Hildenbrand’s statement is as follows:

Let’s get this over with. It’s been weighing on me for several weeks and, you know, I get a little emotional with these things, so just bear with me, if you will. I’ll get through it. I need to spice up my coffee here a little bit. Ease my nerves a little bit.

Thanks for whoever put that nice resolution together about me. It dawned on me the other day that all of us in this chamber get two resolutions presented to us about our time here in the Senate. Obviously this one, and then our memorial resolution. What’s nice about this one is that you actually get to speak after it’s presented to you.

What an honor, privilege, and true blessing it’s been to serve in this chamber with all of you. I feel very fortunate and undeserving to have been able to serve in the Legislature for 14 years. Like all of you, I came here every day to make the most of it. You are all top-notch people, the cream of the crop—talented, caring, just outstanding individuals, and you have all inspired me to be a better person.

My family is my top priority, my pride, and my joy. I’ve always gone out of my way to protect them and insulate them from the difficult parts of this business. They have supported me in every step of the way. My wife Sarah who is here behind me and our daughters Jane and Claire have enriched my life beyond what words can describe. Of course, the girls have ideas of what I should be when I’m done being a Senator. Jane wants me to work at the zoo so we can get free passes and behind-the-scenes tours, and Claire wants me to be a substitute teacher so I can sub in her classroom. While most likely neither of those things will happen, but I will still take them to the zoo and I’ll volunteer in their classrooms.

I want to thank the residents of the 29th Senate District for putting their trust in me to represent their views in Lansing. Kent County is a great place to live. Although I came from the rural part of the county, I was so proud to represent the booming and thriving city of Grand Rapids—all 200,000 people strong, our state’s second-largest city. Politics was not part of my life growing up at all. My first job after graduating from Michigan State was for then-Senate Majority Leader Dick Posthumus. I started as his district representative in Kent County over 20 years ago. He was my first real boss, a great role model for me as a 22-year-old college graduate, ready to get out into the real world. It is under him that I cut my teeth in politics. I would never have guessed in a million years that five Senate Majority Leaders later, I’d be a member of this body and this Majority Leader would appoint me as chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. Thank you, Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof, for believing in me to chair this important committee. It has been the pinnacle, the capstone, of my time in the Legislature. Thank you for your friendship and your bold leadership.

Senator Mike Kowall, thank you for your leadership in this chamber as well. I think we all take for granted all the work you do standing at that podium to make the various motions and maneuvers to get legislation through the chamber.

Appropriations has been my life here at the Capitol the last four years, and I want to thank the other 16 members of the Appropriations Committee. I know I wasn’t the obvious choice for the job but I listened to you and I made your priorities my own. From there, we developed a strong bond and accomplished great things as a team.

I just want to mention a few things about some of the members. My vice chair, Senator Pete MacGregor, what a great guy—hard worker, great leader, you’ll make a great Majority Floor Leader as well. I’ve got a couple more things to say about you later on.

Senator Tonya Schuitmaker, another outstanding leader, a great advocate for higher education. Some days she was like my work wife, but more often like a sister to me—a younger sister, of course.

Senator Darwin Booher, by far the most prepared Senator in this chamber. I sit by him in our caucus room back there and have always been so impressed by how much he takes reading over bills and amendments and getting prepared for each day. But, if you ask me for one more capital outlay project, I am going to jump out that window. Just kidding. You’re a great guy and a great friend and I enjoyed our friendship.

Senator John Proos, what a great public servant for southwest Michigan. A true role model for us all. Man, you sure put the Michigan Department of Corrections through the wringer over the years. I sure hope you don’t find yourself in prison someday. That could get real ugly.

Senator Mike Green, I think you’re always a little surprised at how much I’d care about agriculture and Michigan’s great outdoors in the budget process, but I really enjoyed teaming up with you and prioritizing these areas in the state budget.

Senator Goeff Hansen, what a great leader for public education and I always admired how you worked in a bipartisan fashion. You’re a great public servant and you’ve been a great friend to me.

Senator Mike Nofs, such a talented legislator. He could take the most difficult of issues and navigate a solution that you were covered politically and you felt comfortable to support in the end. I’ve always been so impressed by that. I’ve learned a lot watching you work and I have also enjoyed working with you in the budget process to make sure our public safety officers and our veterans are our top priority.

Senator Mike Shirkey, the first time I had kind of a real conversation with Senator Shirkey was regarding the Medicaid expansion, or Healthy Michigan, back in 2012. Although I couldn’t get on board with you on that one, you certainly made a great case and it was very difficult for me. We were able to align on many other big issues facing the state. I’ve learned a lot from you, watching you work, and you will do very well leading this chamber in the coming years.

Senator Jim Stamas, such an easy-going man, always a gentleman, pleasure to work with. Another excellent leader who will take the reins of the Senate Appropriations Committee with ease.

Senator Jim Marleau, thanks for your leadership in public health policy and public health funding over the years. We had a long history. Back when we were freshmen, you and I co-chaired the House Republican Campaign Committee as freshmen State Representatives. And how little we knew back then.

Senator Marty Knollenberg, I’ve always enjoyed our impromptu conversations. In fact, you stopped by my office just a little bit ago to chat and we talked a little bit about everything. You have a bright future with lots of opportunities in front of you.

We had five Democrats on the committee. It took me a couple years to find them stuffed way back in the corner of the chamber, but I really enjoyed working with them.

My minority vice chair, Vincent Gregory, was always a pleasure to work with and respected our differences.

Then there was Senator Hopgood. You know, the guy hardly says anything but it took him ten minutes to explain each and every amendment he brought up before the Appropriations Committee.

Then, Senators Hertel and Knezek, two proud Democrats who I respect. Those two guys were over there on their phones during committee a lot just waiting for me to let my guard down so they could pounce. Well, we were able to work together on some great things and I enjoyed serving with both of them.

Last but not least, Senator Coleman Young who’s been mentioned in a lot of speeches on this floor. I quickly figured out that I could answer every question Senator Young had in committee before he even asked it. It goes like this, “No, Senator Young, this bill does not take away money from the city of Detroit.” He did represent his district very well.

Through the budget process, I had the honor to work with two House Appropriations Committee chairs—former Representative Al Pscholka and current Representative Laura Cox—as well as three of the Governor’s four budget directors—John Roberts, Al Pscholka in that role, and John Walsh. We put in many long hours putting the budgets together but we always respected each other and found ways to resolve our differences.

Like all of you, I’ve had outstanding staff and I want to mention a few of them. There’s some in the Gallery, but there are four who really stood out because they were all great, like many of you mentioned in your speeches—interns and employees. But there were four who not only were great here in Lansing but also were instrumental in my campaigns. They were the ones who got me here and the ones who got me re-elected.

First, Jen Dettloff. She worked for me on the first day I took office in the House. She worked in my Senate office through most of my first term. She’s done a lot of great roles here. She did everything in the office, including managing my Senate campaign, which turned out to be the most competitive and most expensive in 2010. You can’t find a harder-working, loyal, more dedicated employee than Jen. I’ll always be grateful.

Then there’s Kerry DeBano, who also worked for me both in the House and the Senate. She was from the district, and handled many things in the office. Another very dedicated, loyal employee who played key roles in my campaign and did so much for me in the office.

Adam Erber, he’s our Grand Rapids guy, he was a later addition to the team, but what a great guy. One of those employees who will do whatever it takes to get the job done.

And then, of course, Fred Schaible, the man behind me. Pretty much everybody knows Fred. We both grew up farm boys, and I think that bonded us in this endeavor. You know you have a good chief of staff when other Senators mention your chief of staff in their farewell speeches. He really knows how to work this legislative process but I think even more importantly, he knows the people who make this system work. You’ve been a faithful, hard-working, dedicated employee, Fred, and I’ll always be very grateful.

There’s so many other staff members I could mention, you know, who do so much behind the scenes. Senate Fiscal Agency Director Ellen Jeffries, I know she’s over there, and Steve Angelotti, Kathryn Summers, and so many. I could name everybody over at the Senate Fiscal Agency that I’ve worked so closely with. Our other budget team, you know, Tom Davis and Nikki Brown, so many other staff. A lot of them are around here—Craig Ryan and Matt Sweeney; Dave Biswas; Scott Jones, the committee clerk and lead committee clerk in the Senate who is the clerk for the Senate Appropriations Committee; Jenn Merchant; Scott Hughes; Amber McCann; Terry Marquardt; and Adam Stacey who had key roles to play in my campaigns. All very dedicated, behind-the-scenes workers who I just am so grateful for.

I know many of you know that I’ve done quite a bit of traveling as a legislator. I enjoy getting out and seeing the countryside. We still have a couple weeks left if anybody still wants to learn more about the Electoral College and the National Popular Vote. There’s still time. Speaking of traveling, when I first got elected to the House, I heard of this guy, Senator Joe Hune, a.k.a. Junket Joe. He was a known traveler. The guy knew how to get plugged in on some great legislative conferences. Well, I quickly got connected with him, he taught me the ropes, and, man, it’s been a great ride. I have two great legislative travel partners I want to mention.

First, Senator Phil Pavlov. This guy is hilarious. I mean, we feed off each other and I’ve never laughed so hard in my life at times. So many of his one-liners are the best. At great risk, I’m actually going to share one of them with you. You guys and gals may not think this is funny, but I’ve got to tell you. Phil was learning how to operate a road grader and he was getting helped by a guy. A road grader is one of the older kinds with all kinds of levers in front of him. He’s trying to figure it out, it wasn’t going well, and the guy gave him some advice. He said, “Phil, if you don’t know what lever A does, lever B.” If you don’t know what lever A does, lever B. The best thing about that line is that you can use it in so many different ways. I use it once a month. When the board freezes up and something goes haywire here, we say, “Jeff Cobb, if you don’t know what lever A does, lever B.” What a great guy. Senator Pavlov, we’ve got so many great memories and I’ll cherish them for the rest of my life.

My other travel partner is Senator Pete MacGregor. When I first met Pete MacGregor, I didn’t think the guy was all there. But, what a guy who is full of life. He certainly does grow on you. Our districts border each other in Kent County and we have spent a lot of time together hunting, fishing, traveling, and just goofing off. I hope some of our traditions continue in the future.

Just a couple more, I know I’m getting long. Senator Jack Brandenburg, so, Jack Brandenburg is a prankster. He pulled one over and he may not even remember this. He pulled one over on me in one of my first months in the State House. I’d gone to a concert with a bunch of legislators after session on a Thursday night and we hit it pretty hard. It got late. And the next day, on Friday, I was at home and my phone rings. To this day, I don’t even know why I answered it. I said hello and the voice on the other end said, “Hey, this is a reporter from Lansing. I heard you were at a concert last night with a bunch of lobbyists. Can you confirm that? I want to write a story about that.” As a brand new State Representative, I completely froze. I was so nervous. I was sweating. I didn’t know what to say. He had me going for about a good minute or two and then he let me down and let me know, “Hey, it’s Jack. I’m just pulling one over on you.” He really got me that day and I have appreciated your friendship over the years as well, Jack.

Alright, I’m wrapping up here. I’ve got so many great memories about hunting and fishing with so many of you, I can’t get into them. Our times out on Lake Michigan out of Frankfort, Manistee, Pentwater, and Muskegon, all along the western shore of Michigan, so many great memories that I’ll cherish for my life.

Senator Robertson, Dave Robertson, his excitability in caucus, you can literally see this guy’s blood pressure go up every sentence like a teapot and then the whistle comes out. He’s just so fired up.

I’ve appreciated Senator Jim Ananich’s leadership and friendship. We were able to partner to support his community going through some very difficult times and I’ve enjoyed that friendship as well, and I’ve enjoyed bipartisan legislative dinners at Ukai Steakhouse with Senator Warren as well. I hope that tradition continues.

One of the things that always amazed me about this place is that the amount of energy that is in this town when we are in session. All the people who make this place come to life—our personal staff, the Secretary of the Senate, Session Staff, the Legislative Service Bureau, the sergeants, the Senate Fiscal Agency, central staff, the Senate Business Office, lobbying and government affairs, rallies, protests, committee meetings, events on the Capitol lawn. It just always amazed me when I would show up on Tuesday and be here Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday the amount of energy. It’s electric and you can feel it, and it is so noticeable when you come into this town on a non-session day. It’s just really kind of eerie how quiet it is.

I’m stealing another line from Senator Pavlov in my conclusion that he used in his farewell speech. I too feel as fulfilled leaving the Senate and the Legislature as I did when I entered it about what the future has in store. Thanks again for all the friendships and memories and I’m sure I’ll see many of you again down the road. Take care and God bless.

Senator Meekhof offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 218.

A resolution of tribute for the Honorable Tonya Schuitmaker.

Whereas, On the occasion of her retirement from the Senate, the members of this legislative body deem it a great honor to congratulate Senator Schuitmaker on her eight years of dedication and hard work for the citizens of the Twenty-sixth District and the entire state; and

Whereas, After receiving her bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and her juris doctor from the Detroit College of Law, Tonya Schuitmaker practiced law and became active in her community, serving on many boards and commissions, including the Michigan Board of Medicine, the Van Buren Community Health Board, the Van Buren Community Corrections Advisory Board, and the Midwestern Higher Education Compact Executive Committee; and

Whereas, In 2004, Tonya Schuitmaker was elected to the House, the first of three terms. She was elected to the Senate in 2010 and reelected in 2014. She ably served on several standing committees, including Energy and Technology, Health Policy, and Oversight, and as vice chair of the Judiciary Committee.

Resolved by the Senate, That we offer this expression of tribute to commend and thank the Honorable Tonya Schuitmaker for her notable contributions to this legislative body and to our state; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to Senator Schuitmaker as evidence of our esteem and best wishes.

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 resolution was adopted by a unanimous standing vote of the Senate.

Senator Kowall moved that rule 3.204 be suspended to name the entire membership of the Senate and the Lieutenant Governor as co‑sponsors of the resolution.

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

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Schuitmaker’s statement is as follows:

I started thinking about this speech back in August, and I was like, “How am I ever going to put into words what this has all meant in my life?” Here I go to try and summarize the last 14 years. Thanks, Dad, for helping me with some comedic relief. He got up to sit in my chair. Obviously you know where I get my push-the-limit from, my dad. Thank you, Senator Shirkey, for helping him out so he could see me.

I first want to thank the residents of the 20th and 26th Districts. Yes, you heard me right, I’ve represented two Senate Districts. Ninety-three percent of my district changed after the first four years—thank you, Joe Hune. I’ve had the great honor to represent them. Whether you’ve been my strongest champion, or you’ve felt I could have done better, I’ve always appreciated your input. I’ve tried to respond and be diligent in representing all the residents. Thank you for believing in me, residents.

Next, I want to thank my parents. My mother, Zoe—this is really hard—a social worker, would always tell me growing up that I was a gift from God and to go out and make the world a better place. She would counter that with reading The Little Engine That Could. I would like to credit my mother for giving me the resiliency and the drive to push forward. Growing up she would bring foster kids into our home which has given me a great understanding for the struggles and not to judge others until you walk in their footsteps. This has taught me great empathy that I learned about the hardships of life, and I think it’s made me a better legislator and fueled my passion in the justice system.

My father, Harold, provided a great example of how to treat others. I remember when I was younger, him taking a lunch with a lot of people—I think I was 19 or 20 at the time and I was in awe of the CEOs and the dignitaries—and he gave me the best advice somebody could give: “Remember everyone puts on their pants the same way.”

As I traveled around campaigning throughout the county, I would always get feedback about my parents. Either they had been clients of my mom’s and my mom helped them through a difficult time, or they dealt with my father. One of the best things they always said was that my dad treated them fair. So, Senator Hood, when you said I treated you fair, you have no idea how much that meant to me. I also want to thank my parents for my faith in God. I am strong in my faith and have tried to live a life accordingly. I cannot believe I am crying this much, my husband always said, “Never let them see you cry.” And I’ve never cried in 14 years. I cannot thank God enough for the blessings He has bestowed upon me. Allowing me to faithfully serve my state and country has been the privilege of a lifetime.

I am so blessed to have met my husband, Steve, in our final year of college. Fate brought us together. We had four out of five classes together at Michigan State. Out of 50,000 people, I was fortunate to have four out of five classes with him. Twenty-five years later, we have had a wonderful, joyous life. I could not ask for a better life partner and one who has supported me unconditionally and is my rock. I know the lifestyle of a political spouse is never easy. Sometimes it is harder on the spouse than it is on the candidate. Every weekend was filled with events and he just went along with the flow. “We have a parade this weekend.” “OK, I will get the car ready.” I thank you, you are my best friend, and I can’t thank you enough. You’re the father of my two wonderful children.

Jordan and Savina, you are the light in my world and I can’t tell you how much I love you both and how proud I am of you. When I came into the Legislature you were 8 and 5, and now you are 23 and 20. Wow, where does time go? I am so proud of the people you have become and believe you can do anything in this life. You will be great citizens because you have turned out so well.

I wouldn’t be who I am and wouldn’t have been able to do this job without the overwhelming love I have been surrounded by for the last several years. So, how did I get here? I want to give special thanks to my campaign managers who worked for little pay and asked for nothing in return—Kim Gaedeke, Jay Compton, Jon Andrews, Isabelle Labadie, Joe Wicks, and Ryan Gilbert. I also had many people help who out throughout the years. The list is long and I can’t name them all because there are so many who have lent their time, talent, and treasure to my campaign. Barb, Lenore, Jim, Glenn, Rose, and the two Lorraines, you guys have been amazing. I think combined you have put in a whole year of work for me. So thank you so much.

I would like to acknowledge my predecessors who provided great examples. Representatives Mick and Mary Ann Middaugh, Senators Tom George, Paul Wartner, Patty Birkholz, Mark Jansen, Bill Hardiman, Bill Van Regenmorter, and the reason the list is long is because I represented two districts—thank you, Joe Hune. One other who wasn’t in my area but who has had a profound effect, especially on the Judiciary Committee since we’re both attorneys, would be Senator Bruce Patterson.

My two wonderful leaders. I was so honored when Randy Richardville said he wanted to promote a woman. It’s hard being one of four women. He said, “I want you to be Senate President pro tempore.” Randy, thank you so much. Arlan Meekhof, you were my seatmate over in the House and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you and your friendship. You have an amazing wife as well. Both, Randy and Arlan, you have been great leaders of our caucus and I thank you so much.

Senator Kowall, Dave Biswas, Jeff Cobb, and the entire office of the Secretary of the Senate, we’ve all worked together and I appreciate our great working relationships that I had with you as Senate President pro tempore.

Next, I have had the opportunity to serve under great chairs on my committees. First, my first love which is the Judiciary Committee. Nobody else asked for it but it was always my first request. Rick Jones, chairman of Judiciary, I was so skeptical that a non-attorney would be running the Judiciary Committee but you have totally proven me wrong. You and your staff—and you have had amazing staff throughout the years—have vetted every bill and you have run the committee very efficiently. We’re out of there, sometimes in a half hour after doing 15 bills. I’m had to catch my breath sometimes. You and your staff are amazing. I thank you for your friendship. You stuck your neck out for me and now you’re paying a political price for it. On a personal level, you are so loyal and such a good friend. I will always remember it. We have had our differences, but I think the testament of a good friendship is when you can respectfully disagree. You have always been upfront and I couldn’t ask for anything more.

Mike Nofs, who I sit on the floor with and also the chairman of our Energy and Technology Committee. I have been through three rewrites of very complicated issues. Energy and telecom are not simple issues. You are a great example of how to take a very complicated issue and workgroup them and build coalitions. Thank you so much for the person you are. You, too, were a person of your word and you always understood where I was coming from.

Next, my brother, Dave Hildenbrand, chairman of the Appropriations Committee, you have always been like a younger brother. Thank you for the comment earlier but I am older so I recognize that. Thank you so much. You have been cool, even-handed, and I certainly have enjoyed representing Kent County with you and Senator McGregor. I’m an only child and I felt like I had two brothers there in Kent County. There certainly was collegiality.

And then there was Darwin Booher, chair of Capital Outlay. You are one of the most underappreciated Senators that there are. You are diligent and you know your stuff. You are an amazing person. You and Patrick—I should give a shout out to Patrick—you just do the work and you don’t care about the credit. You fly under the radar and you are also amazing.

Then there is the chair of the Judiciary Subcommittee, John Proos. You and I came in with differences but I can tell you that I am so happy and thank God for the comment you gave and the heart to heart talks we have had recently over the last year or two. I’m happy to be leaving calling you a friend and in peace. Thank you so much. You, too, were a great chairman. I never got to serve on the Corrections Subcommittee with you but I got to serve with you on the Judiciary Subcommittee, and it was all professional and amazing. So, thank you.

Then there was the Subcommittee on Higher Education which I got to chair, and I could not ask for better vice chairs. Certainly, in my first term, Senator Hood, you were amazing and very fair. Thank you so much. On a personal note, I treasure the words that you have always said. You have kind of slowed down and I hope one of the last speeches I hear during Statements is a speech from you. Nothing would make me happier because those speeches have always weighed heavily on my heart. So know that you make a difference. Then there is also Curtis Hertel. I certainly have enjoyed the back and forth with you. You, too, are very fair. I’ve really enjoyed working with you on the committee. I would also like to thank Bill Bowerman from Senate Fiscal Agency and Tom Davis. I was successful because I had amazing people helping me out.

Then there are my fellow women Senators. We were a small but mighty force of only four. Senator Judy Emmons, you are a class act. Just a class act. It’s been wonderful getting to know you better in the last two to three years. Then there is my travel buddy, Senator Rebekah Warren. Who would have thought that a liberal from Ann Arbor and a conservative from West Michigan would become the best of friends? But we found a common interest in that we love to travel. Any time you see a great deal—not on taxpayer expense, of course—you just know who to call and I will have my suitcases packed the next day. Thank you, and I echo all the comments that you are well prepared and just an amazing legislator as well.

And then there is my partner up there, Margaret O’Brien, who is not only my fellow legislator who got to fill in for me when I got redistricted—thank you, Joe Hune—but a very good friend, a sister, and her, along with Mary Balkema, have just been amazing friends to me. We have been able to accomplish great things for our districts. Margaret, you’re a tremendous and articulate legislator. You have been a wonderful advocate for Kalamazoo. I couldn’t ask for somebody better equipped than you to fill my shoes that I left in Kalamazoo. I certainly have enjoyed our carpool. Unfortunately, in one fell swoop over three months and three different elections, our whole carpool was taken out. Representative Dave Maturen lost in the primary in August; I of course lost at the convention; and Margaret, you rounded out the team there in the general election.

Next would be the person who has faithfully—I say faithfully because I look over there and he’s not there—would be the person who got me flowers every Valentine’s Day. Guys, you know if you start giving a woman flowers, then you have to keep up with that. If you bring her flowers for one anniversary, every anniversary you better bring her flowers. Well, Coleman Young brought me flowers one Valentine’s Day. He got all the ladies in the House flowers for Valentine’s Day. So I said, “Well, Coleman, I expect you to next year on Valentine’s Day.” Because my husband never started getting me flowers for Valentine’s Day, so he was off the hook. Coleman, he got us flowers. For ten years straight, you have been the one person who has faithfully given me flowers. I thank you and it was always exciting hearing your speeches because we were wall mates over in the Farnum Building, so I got a preview of “Madam President, let me start with a quote.” Thank you so much, Coleman. You always bring a smile to my face, and guess what, you’re off the hook for future Valentine’s Days.

Senator Bieda, you and I have known each other the longest in this chamber. We go all the way back to law school when you would come in to the library and I worked at the library. Never in a million years did I ever realize that our paths would again cross like this. I can’t thank you enough. We’ve served on the Judiciary Committee all of our years. I think Judiciary was probably your passion and your number one request, along with mine. You’re a class act. I’ve enjoyed serving with you, and even more, I have enjoyed chairing the Victims’ Rights Vigil every year. I thank you for taking time out of your night. I know that means a lot to these victims who lose a loved one and are trying to find peace over an awful situation. I thank you for that.

I’ve come to know so many of you in this room and I wish I could mention each of you. I was so blessed to see so many of you in action in your districts over the last two years. I know my staff was like, “Tonya, you can’t go this long.” But, I am because there were some people who were amazing. Senator Casperson, I think you took three days out of your life two or three times to drive me around the U.P., set up meetings, and set up news interviews. When you drive around the U.P. it gave me the full scope. From one district to another it takes me an hour and a half, that’s little for you. You drive like five to six hours from one city to another city. It certainly did give me a view of how important the U.P. is with different issues. I would always kid you about, “How come we can’t vote on one more wolf bill?” That is all I want to do because I think we voted on the wolf bill like eight times. I certainly appreciated the insight that I saw from you.

Senator Schmidt, you too, drove me all around and introduced me to your constituents and brought me to your radio stations. I can’t thank you enough for everything that you did.

Then there is the guy, Senator Green, who gets me into trouble because he talks to me. You bring me back to 5th grade when I’m talking in the back of the class because you get me in trouble with my good friend Arlan. I don’t even know what we really talk about, if there’s anything, but I’ve treasured our friendship. I’ve treasured your insight, and thank you so much for being a good friend to me and getting me in trouble in the back of the class during caucus time.

Next is the Senator who I knew the least when I first started out this process one year ago. I never would have thought—I was kind of scared because I was going around and saying, “Can I have your support?” You guys were all wonderful. The one who I was dreading the most was the one who has stepped up to the plate so much, and that’s Senator Pavlov. Senator, you and I didn’t really know each other a whole lot even though we sit very close. I don’t know why we were never on the same committees, but you and Justin were Godsends to me. I can’t thank you enough. I have gotten to know you and I value our friendship. Thank you so very much. You mean the world to me. I know if I’m ever over in the Thumb I know I will call you for lunch. Thank you.

Senator Robertson, I could echo the comments about the tea pot. I have always enjoyed you spinning around. You name it, I am so thankful. Just to tell you a story about Senator Robertson—when my daughter was graduating, I put out invitations to invite people. I didn’t want anybody to feel obligated, but Senator Robertson took one. The week before her graduation party, I was out in the barn, I had my hair in a ponytail, and I had just come in to write a speech because I had to give speech that next Monday or Tuesday, and I hear the doorbell. I was like, “Man, who could that be on a Saturday night at 7:00 p.m.?” I have no makeup on, I’m in a ratty sweatshirt, and I looked like death warmed over. I go down and peer out the window and I see this “Dave Robertson for Senate” bumper sticker. I was like, “Oh, could he be coming a week early?” Dave and his wife came a week early and then they came back the next week. Thank you so much and thanks to my husband who whipped out—we had no food in the fridge—a can of chicken, some old tortillas, and some enchilada sauce and we had a wonderful dinner. Dave, you’re welcome at my house anytime for dinner.

To my former colleagues—John Walsh, John Pastor, Bruce Caswell, Shelley Taub, Chris Ward, Ed Gaffney, Bill Huizenga, and Dan Accavitti—thank you. Words cannot describe what your help, encouragement, and support have been to me.

I have also been blessed to work alongside amazing leaders in the House during the course of my service. To Representatives Beth Griffin, Dave Maturen, Daniela Garcia, Mike McCready, Chris Afendoulis, and Senator-elect Aric Nesbitt, you all have been tremendous leaders and great friends. I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention one person. He’s from my small town of Paw Paw, Richard McLellan, who from day one, since we come from the same small town, has really helped mentor me.

To those who work behind the scenes preparing us for committee and tough issues, thank you to our entire policy and communication teams. Thank you to Rich and Pattrick for all the work documenting our experiences here so that we can share our work with our constituents, and I know, Pattrick, I’ve really put you through the wringer with the books and everything. Pattrick, thank you so much.

Thank you to Mike Ferland, to our sergeants, and our wonderful Senate clerks and staff. Your work is often thankless but essential and I am thankful for the work you have done. To the pages, the people who clean this building, it does come alive and it’s all because of a team effort.

To the Governor and the Lieutenant Governor, I thank you for your leadership. The state is better off.

For all who work in my office, I could not be prouder of each and every one of you. I’m almost done here. I wanted to save the best for last because the people who have worked in my office have truly been special. I’ve had two wonderful chiefs of staff, starting with Rebecca DeVooght. She always had me in stitches laughing and people would call the office just to talk to her. They didn’t want to talk to me, they wanted to talk to her. Thank you Rebecca. You made the district better. And then Trisha Nesbitt, I don’t know what I would have done without your steady hand and your guiding influence this last year.

And then, the person who has been with me the entire eight years, my district director Deb Shields. You’re amazing. You knew how to run the district and I didn’t ever question you. You were just on autopilot. If I didn’t come talk to you enough in the last year, it’s because I had enough trust in you that you just had it all under control.

Then there was Amanda. I know you’re more qualified than a scheduler, but you were the best scheduler ever and I’m so happy to see that you’re coming back as a chief of staff because you are just so smart and so talented and just such a wonderful human being.

And then there’s my three millennials, of which, should I communicate through group text because apparently they taught me something, that we communicate through group text. Sam, Mitch, and Stephen, you three. Sam, I know you pinch-hit for Higher Education and you have a very bright future. Mitch and Stephen, all three of you have helped me out so much in the last year and all three of you have such a bright future. Thank you so very much.

In this profession, I’ve come to realize that beyond our partisanships and after the votes have been cast, the people in this room have made this experience one full of kindness, humor, and friendship that is too often not seen by the public. I wish I could mention each of you. Please know that you all have a special place in my heart.

Please know this is a job that I haven’t taken lightly. It is a job which comes with immense power and ultimate responsibility. One with substantial pressure to serve and to serve well. It’s one which comes with a tremendous amount of faith and trust. It can be stressful, rewarding, and thankless, all within the same five-minute span, but for me, I would not have changed a thing with these last 14 years.

During my years of service, I have proudly fought for crime victims’ rights, protecting seniors and children, sexual assault prevention, and ensuring our criminal justice system keeps our communities safe and holds offenders accountable. It has been an honor to work with law enforcement officers, prosecutors, victims’ advocates, and survivors from across the state to implement meaningful legislation. I wish I could mention them all, but my staff said, “You cannot add any more people to this,” but you know who you are. Thank you so very much.

I can only hope I have executed the responsibilities of my office true to myself and true to the people I have served.

God bless you all, our great state, and our nation. Thank you so much.
