Rev. Dr. Jack Mannschreck, Lead Pastor of Waterford Central United Methodist Church in Waterford, offered the following invocation:

 

敵racious Creator, we recognize that we do not always connect with Your call upon our lives and ask that Your wisdom, guidance and higher ways become ours. We pray for the work of this legislative session. That the deliberations and decision made will reflect care and concern for our great state of Michigan, that individuals will become what You intend, that communities will be what You design and that the natural resources with which we are blessed will be utilized wisely.

We pray for violence to end around the world and that Your will for peace become a call upon our lives.

We pray for inclusiveness in the workplace, in government, in service organizations and in our churches, synagogues and mosques.

We pray for local community schools, colleges and universities as they begin their fall schedules. We pray for knowledge to grow and for ways in which that knowledge will benefit our state, country and world.

Thank You, gracious God, for the many blessings that You bestow upon us and for the responsibility to use those blessings for the unity of all humanity.

In Your name we pray. Amen.

The Speaker called the Speaker Pro Tempore to the Chair.

 

 

Reps. Garrett, Byrd, Neeley, Yancey, Gay-Dagnogo, Witwer, Wittenberg, Anthony, Hoadley, Bolden, Pohutsky, Rabhi, LaGrand, Calley, Pagan, Ellison, Sowerby, Brixie, Kennedy, Brenda Carter, Stone, Hood, Robinson, Tyrone Carter, Manoogian, Cambensy, Allor, Garza, Liberati, Love, Sneller and Warren offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 144.

A resolution to declare September 1-September 7, 2019, as Infant Safe Sleep Awareness Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Infant Safe Sleep Awareness Week calls attention to the fact that with proper safe sleep steps, preventable infant deaths can be avoided; and

Whereas, Sudden Unexpected Infant Death, or SUID, is the leading cause of death in infants between one month and one year of age; and

Whereas, According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 3,500 babies in the United States are lost to sleep-related deaths each year; and

Whereas, In 2015, 159 infants in the state of Michigan died due to sudden unexpected infant deaths. This means that a baby dies nearly every other day in Michigan in an unsafe sleeping environment. Evidence suggests that these deaths are overwhelmingly preventable. The risk factors for sudden unexpected infant death can be mitigated by reducing the baby痴 exposure to smoke and unsafe sleep practices; and

Whereas, Many parents practice unsafe sleeping habits with their infant because they are unaware of the dangers of SUID. Babies are needlessly dying because of unsafe sleeping environments, such as couches and adult beds, or sleep areas with other children, adults, pets, pillows, blankets, stuffed animals, or other toys; and

Whereas, There are seven simple steps one should take to ensure babies sleep in a safe environment. These steps are: the baby always sleeps alone in a crib; the baby sleeps on his or her back; there is nothing in the baby痴 sleep area; the baby痴 face is uncovered; there is no smoking around the baby; the baby is not overheated or overdressed; the baby must sleep on a firm mattress with a tight-fitting sheet; and

Whereas, Our state is fortunate to have many public and private partners working together to protect children and ensure infants are safe. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services recommend placing infants in a safe sleeping environment to help significantly reduce sudden unexpected death; and

Whereas, Parents should gain a broader understanding of safe sleep practices and the risk factors associated with SUID and share that information with others. A broader understanding of safe sleep practices by parents in the state of Michigan will help prevent nearly 150 infant deaths in Michigan per year; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare September 1‑7, 2019, as Infant Safe Sleep Awareness Week in the state of Michigan. We aim to promote awareness of sudden unexpected infant death and safe sleep practices.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Reps. Gay-Dagnogo, Sowerby, Kennedy, Hood, Rabhi, Pagan, Ellison, Kuppa, Yancey, Garrett, Byrd, Witwer, Garza, Manoogian, Bolden, Wittenberg, Pohutsky, Stone and Warren offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 145.

A resolution to urge the Governor to make substantial progress toward eliminating the disparities minority- and women-owned businesses experience in the state contracting process.

Whereas, A true government of the people must always seek equitable outcomes and be accountable to all people, especially people from disadvantaged groups. This notion only becomes more important in matters involving the use of public funds; and

Whereas, The state spends billions of dollars each year on goods and services from outside vendors, but the share of that spending that goes to minority- and women-owned businesses lags behind the population share of those groups; and

Whereas, The state has a responsibility to pursue fairness in the contracting and procurement process. Businesses owned by people of color and women should not routinely receive a smaller share of state contracts than other businesses; and

Whereas, Awarding contracts to minority- and women-owned businesses will help promote economic growth and shrink racial- and gender-based disparities that exist in society. Investing in businesses owned by people of color and women will have cascading positive effects in communities that have seen underinvestment for generations; and

Whereas, Ensuring that the state contracting process addresses these inequalities requires forward-thinking leadership and proactive efforts. The Governor has made important progress by appointing people of color and women to key positions in her administration and issuing Executive Directives 2019-08 and 2019-09 which, in part, promote geographically-disadvantaged businesses and work to ensure equal opportunity in state contracting, but more can be done to eliminate these disparities; and

Whereas, It is important to pursue policies that improve the state痴 process for selecting vendors, including reviving the Department of Civil Rights role in certifying vendors that have demonstrated compliance with the non-discrimination requirements established in state and federal law. It is also equally as important to make sure the state is doing everything it can to solicit bids from minority- and women-owned businesses that have not previously sought state contracts; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge the Governor to make substantial progress toward eliminating the disparities minority- and women-owned businesses experience in the state contracting process; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Governor and the Director of the Department of Management, Technology and Budget.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Commerce and Tourism.

 

 

THIS RESOLUTION IS OFFERED TO COMPLY WITH MCL 51.76.

 

Reps. Miller, Chirkun, Leutheuser, Coleman, Allor, Calley and Garza offered the following concurrent resolution:

House Concurrent Resolution No. 9.

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痴 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 2020, 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 concurrent resolution was referred to the Committee on Appropriations.
