Pastor Nathan Dannison, Senior Pastor of First Congregational Church in Kalamazoo, offered the following invocation:

 

鄭lmighty God, architect of creation, bend our will and our might toward building a more just community. Call forth our gifts that we might proclaim freedom to those who are ensnared in the systems of oppression - give aid to our leaders that they might dismantle the sinful cruelties of economic injustice, to stand against the ongoing militarization of our police and private citizens alike - and the privatization of our prisons and schools for the enrichment of the privileged. Take away our worship of violence and restore us to Your own vision, Your own purpose, a people of Shalom, a people who serve one another not begrudgingly, but because the entirety of our being is to serve, and serve, and serve, and at the last, rejoice. Bless our time this evening to Your purpose, Eternal Spirit, by all Your many beautiful names we pray. Amen.

Reports of Standing Committees

 

 

The Speaker laid before the House

House Resolution No. 23.

A resolution to declare this legislative body痴 policy to protect life by preserving legal protections for unborn children under Michigan law and to recognize that any abortion is a tragic loss of human life.

(For text of resolution, see House Journal No. 16, p. 144.)

(The resolution was reported by the Committee on Judiciary on May 7.)

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

 

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

Substitute for House Resolution No. 23.

A resolution to declare this legislative body痴 policy to reduce infant mortality rates and ensure access to maternal and infant health care.

Whereas, High infant mortality rates are a serious concern in the state of Michigan. In 2016, Michigan痴 infant mortality rate was 6.4 deaths per 1,000 live births, higher than the national figure of 5.9 infant deaths per 1,000 live births; and

Whereas, In 2017, the numbers ticked up, countering a decade of improvement, to 6.8 deaths per 1,000 live births, indicating the immediate need for additional efforts to improve maternal and infant health; and

Whereas, Disproportionate impacts on the survival of infants from racial and ethnic minority groups are particularly concerning. Among African Americans, the infant mortality rate was 13.4 per 1,000 live births compared to 4.9 for white infants. From 2013-2015, the average infant mortality rate for American Indian infants was 9.4 per 1,000 live births. Access to high quality health care plays a crucial role in reducing infant mortality and health disparities; and

Whereas, The African-American mortality rate is more than three times the rate of white mothers, which is one of the most striking of all racial disparities impacting women痴 health today; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we declare this legislative body痴 policy to reduce infant mortality rates; ensure access to comprehensive prenatal and postnatal care for women; and increase health assessments, follow-up diagnostic and treatment services, and access to preventive and child care services, as well as rehabilitative services for children and child care.

The motion did not prevail and the substitute (H-1) was not adopted, a majority of the members serving not voting therefor.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

______

 

 

Rep. Elder, having reserved the right to explain his protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

This bill is unconstitutional, pursuant to existing case law. To the extent future case law changes this fact, the actions herein would be barred by existing statutes.

 

Rep. Warren, having reserved the right to explain her protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

As many of my colleagues and constituents know, before being elected to the State Legislature in 2006, I had served for seven years as the Executive Director of MARAL Pro-Choice Michigan, which at the time was the state痴 oldest and largest pro-choice organization.

Having had the opportunity to work on these critical issues both as an advocate and a legislator, I am firmly convinced that the decision about when, whether, and how to become a parent must remain firmly in the hands of a patient and her medical provider. I have spoken to countless women of all ages, who for their own intensely personal reasons have had to make the decision to terminate a pregnancy. Many of these women were already mothers; others were not. Many of these women had medical reasons to make the decision to terminate; others did not. Many had intended to become pregnant; others had not.

The only common thread which united each of their experiences was this: having made their decision, they deserved to have the medical provider most familiar with their health determine which procedure was suitable and to have that procedure performed in safe circumstances by a qualified and licensed health care provider.

I am deeply troubled that the Michigan Legislature has determined to insert its judgement where only a medical provider痴 and a patient痴 belong. I strongly oppose this legislation, as I would any attempt to politicize health care decisions or to infringe upon the right of each person to access a full range of reproductive health care options, including safe, legal abortion care without undue burden.

 

Rep. Ellison, having reserved the right to explain his protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

I voted today in opposition to House Bill 4320. There is no medical reason to deny women and their doctors the option of using one of the safest methods of reproductive care. Make no mistake, this effort is part of a nation-wide, coordinated attack on a woman痴 access to safe and legal reproductive health care.

This bill will force medical professionals to make the difficult decision between 1) offering care that is science-based, medically-appropriate, and the best option for their patients or 2) facing prison time and fines for making a decision that all of their expertise and professional work has trained them to do. That is not a dilemma that we, as elected officials, should be forcing on the medical professionals of our state. Their only concern should be taking care of their patient and offering the best advice possible allowing Michigan women the freedom to make the safest decisions for themselves and their families.

I may not be a doctor, but I am a husband, a father of three daughters and a grandfather of nine granddaughters and I trust them and their doctors to make good decisions.

And the leading medical organization on women痴 health, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, is telling us that these bills serve no purpose but to put Michigan women at risk.

Laws similar to these bills in other states have been blocked, shot down and deemed unconstitutional time, and time again.

I urge my colleagues to join me in voting no on House Bill 4320, which seeks to swap reproductive care for partisan politics.

Rep. Chirkun, having reserved the right to explain his protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

My no vote is reflected as to the bill I feel is illegal and unconstitutional. This issue has been decided already by the US Supreme Court in Roe vs Wade.

 

Rep. Witwer, having reserved the right to explain her protest against the passage of the bill, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

I voted no on House Bill 4320 because each and every time the constitutionality of similar legislation has been challenged across the country, courts have been clear and unequivocal in their conclusion that it is unconstitutional. Michigan faces far too many pressing challenges today to be spending this House痴 precious time on legislation that will inevitably be invalidated. We should instead spend our time, energy, and efforts working together to address those challenges. That痴 what the citizens of Michigan sent us here to do and that痴 what each Member of this chamber owes to our constituents.

 

 

Rep. Cole moved that House Bill No. 4321 be placed on its immediate passage.

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

Motions and Resolutions

 

 

Reps. Vaupel, Liberati, Frederick, Marino, Wakeman, Allor, Calley, Chirkun, Crawford, Garza, Gay‑Dagnogo, Haadsma, Jones and Lasinski offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 93.

A resolution to urge the Congress of the United States to allow jail and prison inmates to be eligible for Medicaid coverage.

Whereas, The Federal Medicaid Inmate Exclusion Policy (MIEP) prohibits the payment of federal Medicaid matching dollars for medical services provided to prison inmates. Medicaid will only cover the care an inmate receives in an inpatient hospital or medical institution; and

Whereas, Incarcerated individuals have been ineligible for Medicaid since the inception of the program in 1965. National prison populations have risen exponentially over the past several decades from approximately 200,000 when Medicaid began to over a million in county jails and state prisons currently; and

Whereas, The MIEP places a tremendous financial burden on states, counties, and local communities as hundreds of millions of dollars are spent annually for health care services provided in jails and prisons. Inmate health issues run the gamut from mental illness to chronic diseases, including diabetes, hypertension, kidney failure, and cancer. Furthermore, the health complexities of aging inmates increase health care costs; and

Whereas, The repeal of or a federal waiver from the exclusionary provision of MIEP would enable states and counties to seek federal matching funds for Medicaid-covered services. Furthermore, states that have expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act would be reimbursed for at least 90 percent of their spending on prison health care; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge the Congress of the United States to repeal the Medicaid Inmate Exclusion Policy to allow prison inmates to be eligible for Medicaid coverage or allow states to seek a waiver from the law; 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.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Judiciary.

Reps. Cherry, Sneller, Ellison, Tyrone Carter, Sabo, Mueller, Chirkun, Cambensy, Hertel, Cynthia Johnson, Sowerby, Brixie, Warren, Neeley, Howell, Hope, Green, Kuppa, Stone, Hood, Shannon, Pagan, Koleszar, Camilleri, Anthony, Manoogian, Haadsma, Pohutsky, Brann, Vaupel, Yaroch, Crawford, Hoadley, Webber, O樽alley, Paquette, Inman, Kennedy, Hammoud, Brenda Carter, Love, Allor, Calley, Garza, Gay‑Dagnogo, Jones, Lasinski, Leutheuser, Rendon and Witwer offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 94.

A resolution to commemorate the centennial of state parks in Michigan.

Whereas, Michigan is known for its diverse outdoor spaces which have created many picturesque scenes and experiences. Our state is home to 103 state parks, comprised of over 300,000 acres of land in containing more than 1000 miles of trails, 138 state forest campgrounds, and numerous waterways and heritage sites; and

Whereas, No matter your location in Michigan, you are never more than a half-hour away from enjoying the expanse of a state park, state forest campground, or state trail system; and

Whereas, On May 12th, 1919, the Michigan State Park Commission was created to acquire and maintain public lands for state parks; and

Whereas; 2019 marks the 100th year of Michigan state parks with outdoor opportunities extending from Milliken State Park and Harbor in Detroit, Michigan痴 first urban state park providing a green oasis in the heart of the city, to Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, offering one of the few remaining large wild areas in the Midwest; and

Whereas, Our state parks draw vacationers, hunters, and nature enthusiasts from across the world and our forests, lakes, and thousands of miles of beaches are top attractions; and

Whereas, Generations of residents and visitors have fallen in love with these precious natural places, creating lifelong memories; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body commemorate the centennial of state parks in Michigan. We hold dear the treasured memories and cherished experiences given to us by these priceless entities; and be it further

Resolved, That May 12, 2019, is recognized as the 100th anniversary of the creation of the Michigan State Park Commission.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Reps. LaFave, Markkanen, Green, Wakeman, Lightner, Berman, Slagh, VanWoerkom, Crawford, O樽alley, Allor, Rendon, Webber, Reilly, Meerman, Miller, LaGrand, Tyrone Carter, Koleszar, Stone, Shannon, Tate, Pagan, Brenda Carter, Witwer, Manoogian, Brixie, Haadsma, Kuppa, Wittenberg, Cynthia Johnson, Gay-Dagnogo, Cambensy, Camilleri, Jones, Whitsett, Byrd, Ellison, Chirkun, Hood, Vaupel, Brann, Calley, Cherry, Garza, Hall, Kahle, Lasinski, Leutheuser, Sabo, Sneller, Warren and Yaroch offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 95.

A resolution to declare May 12-18, 2019, as Police Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, In 1962, President John F. Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others; and

Whereas, There are more than 800,000 law enforcement officers serving in communities across the United States, including the approximately 17,000 full-time uniformed police officers in Michigan; and

Whereas, Members of law enforcement deserve the appreciation and respect of the people of Michigan for the merit, dignity, bravery, and reliability they exhibit each and every day. We must also honor the sacrifices made by families of police officers, as each day they must face constant fear as their loved one works to protect us; and

Whereas, in 2018 alone, 163 law enforcement officers were killed and many, many more were assaulted in the line of duty across the country. The names of these dedicated public servants who made the ultimate sacrifice are engraved on the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C.; and

Whereas, Michigan痴 fallen officers will never be forgotten, nor will their service to their respective communities. By choosing to commit themselves to law enforcement, these brave individuals answered the call for service and willingly put their lives in jeopardy. We commend them for recognizing service as a noble career, protecting the public safety, and also all of those who are serving without incident to date; and

Whereas, Michigan and all Michigan citizens have turned to members of law enforcement for assistance and support in times of distress, whether they are coping with a personal crisis or struggling through civil disorder or a natural disaster. Our communities rely on these courageous individuals when it is difficult to stand on our own and we are indebted to the unwavering public service of our local and state police. We are indeed fortunate and grateful for the contributions of law enforcement officers to the people of this state; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare May 12-18, 2019, as Police Week in the state of Michigan. We publicly salute the service of law enforcement officers in our community as well as those of our state and nation and honor police who place their lives on the line for the safety and security of their communities.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Reps. Paquette, Kuppa, Bellino, Frederick, O樽alley, Griffin, Markkanen, Vaupel, Leutheuser, LaFave, Howell, Wakeman, Berman, Gay-Dagnogo, Allor, Calley, Chirkun, Crawford, Garza, Haadsma, Jones, Kahle, Lasinski, Rendon, Sneller, Warren, Webber and Witwer offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 96.

A resolution to declare May 12-18, 2019, as STEM Awareness Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Michigan痴 unique history in agriculture, automotive, chemistry, manufacturing, automation, and innovation across many sectors provides us an opportunity to light the way for our future in computational thinking and modeling by promoting, adopting, and implementing computer science standards in our state; and

Whereas, Currently only 35% of high schools nationally offer computer science, yet 90% of parents want their children to have access to computer science learning opportunities; and

Whereas, The adoption of K-12 computer science standards is critical so that students in our state are competitive regionally, nationally, and globally; and

Whereas, STEM education refers to the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics; and

Whereas, Participating in STEM activities increases engagement in education, promotes equity, supports literacy development, and fosters technologically alert and empowered students, who gain multiple ways to frame problems and transfer knowledge to new situations; and

Whereas, A globally competitive, knowledge-based economy is a fact for students, now and in the foreseeable future, and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are critical drivers in that economy; and

Whereas, STEM is not only science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, but also a way of learning in which students comprehend by doing, thinking critically, and providing solutions that drive healthy, thriving communities; and

Whereas, STEM occupations are among the highest paying, fastest growing, and most influential in driving economic growth and innovation; and

Whereas, If Michigan students become inspired by science, technology, engineering, and mathematics at an early age, they will be more likely to enter those growing career fields when they graduate; and

Whereas, Computer science is a discipline in which students learn new approaches to problem solving, harness the power of computational thinking, and create, not just consume, technology; and

Whereas, The Michigan STEM Advisory Council has supported opportunities for transforming learning through computer science with statewide professional learning through MI-Coding; and

Whereas, A STEM education will ensure our state痴 workforce will be equipped for the jobs of tomorrow; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare May 12-18, 2019, as STEM Awareness Week in the state of Michigan. We urge all citizens to recognize the importance of STEM education in preparing our young people for the high-tech jobs of the future.

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Reps. Hope, Sowerby, Love, Gay-Dagnogo, Allor, Cherry, Chirkun, Crawford, Garza, Haadsma, Jones, Kuppa, Lasinski, Sneller, Warren and Witwer offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 97.

A resolution to declare May 13-19, 2019, as Celiac Disease Awareness Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Celiac Disease Awareness Week begins May 13, 2019, and is designed to raise public awareness of this serious and incurable condition; and

Whereas, The disease causes inflammation in the small intestine and it interferes with the proper absorption of nutrients; and

Whereas, If left untreated, celiac disease permanently damages the small intestine and can also lead to malnutrition, osteoporosis, infertility, miscarriage, seizures, and neuropathy; and

Whereas, According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, persons with celiac disease are twice as likely to have coronary artery disease and are four times as likely to develop cancer, specifically intestinal lymphoma or cancer of the small intestine; and

Whereas, Celiac disease often co-occurs with other serious autoimmune conditions, including Type I diabetes, thyroid disease, microscopic colitis, Addison痴 disease, and rheumatoid arthritis; and

Whereas, The only way to manage celiac disease is to completely avoid gluten, which is found not only in many foods containing wheat or other grains, but also in medications and personal care products. For this reason, accidental exposure to gluten is common in celiac patients; and

Whereas, Maintaining a strict gluten-free diet can cause some persons with celiac disease to become socially isolated as food is often the centerpiece of parties, meetings, and other social events. Those diagnosed with celiac disease should consult with a dietitian and may find benefit in social support groups; and

Whereas, As a result of the week of May 13, 2019, being recognized as Celiac Disease Awareness Week throughout Michigan, more citizens will have conversations about their current state of health, more healthcare providers will learn more about celiac disease, and the public will understand why it is important for persons with celiac disease to remain completely gluten free; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare May 13-19, 2019, as Celiac Disease Awareness Week in the state of Michigan. We call this observance to the attention of all our citizens.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Messages from the Governor

 

 

The following line item veto message from the Governor was received and read:

 

Executive Office, Lansing, May 9, 2019

Michigan House of Representatives

State Capitol

Lansing, MI 48909-7514

 

Ladies and gentlemen:

Today I have signed Enrolled House Bill 4286, which amends section 6 of the Wrongful Imprisonment Compensation Act. I support the additional reporting requirements mandated by this legislation.

However, pursuant to section 19 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963, I have disapproved subsection (10) of the bill, which would have appropriated $10 million to the Wrongful Imprisonment Compensation Fund for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2019. While I support the appropriation of money for this purpose, I don稚 support its inclusion in House Bill 4286.

As I previously indicated, including in Executive Directive 2019-7, I will use my veto power to disapprove appropriations included in bills amending the Michigan Compiled Laws to preserve the People痴 reserved constitutional right to approve or disapprove enacted laws, regardless of the subject matter of the legislation.

While this item veto underscores my strong support for referendum rights, it should not be construed as a lack of support for compensation for citizens wrongfully imprisoned. I would support an appropriation of money to the Wrongful Imprisonment Compensation Fund included in a supplemental appropriations bill or a general appropriations bill.

Respectfully,

Gretchen Whitmer

Governor

The bill was signed by the Governor May 9, 2019, at 3:28 p.m.

The bill was filed with the Secretary of State May 10, 2019, at 9:40 a.m. and assigned Public Act No. 10, I.E.

The question being on the passage of the disapproved item, the objections of the Governor to the contrary notwithstanding,

Rep. Cole moved that the disapproved line item be re-referred to the Committee on Appropriations.

The motion prevailed.

Explanation of 哲o Votes

 

 

Rep. Garrett, having reserved the right to explain her protest against the passage of House Bill No. 4397, made the following statement:

的 voted no on HB 4397 because it guarantees that thousands of Michigan drivers who are injured in car accidents will not get the care they need to address those injuries and the financial security they deserve, but fails to provide Michigan drivers with meaningful, long-term rate reductions. Michigan drivers will continue to pay exorbitant insurance rates and get far less in return than they currently receive. The bill contains window dressing to create the appearance that rates will be reduced and Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) will be given the authority to reign in insurance company abuses, but a careful reading reveals that these provisions have no teeth. Use of non-driving factors such as credit scores, zip codes, and educational attainment are not prohibited under the bill. DIFS is not provided the tools to reject excessive rates. Rate reductions are temporary and address only one of the many line items on an insurance bill. There is no guarantee that anyone痴 total insurance bill will be reduced at all.

I support comprehensive reform that guarantees rate relief and provides accident victims with the care they need. I support the substitute bill offered by the representative from the 35th district that would have provided real rate relief and reigned in insurance company abuses. Unfortunately the majority rejected the proposal.

I look forward to continuing to work on this issue. The committee process that was bypassed by the majority today should resume and a real, bi-partisan solution and provide relief for constituents throughout the state of Michigan.
