Rep. Kathy Crawford, from the 38th District, offered the following invocation:

 

鄭 very old Chaplains Service book of prayers has a Prayer for our Countrythat is just as meaningful today, maybe more meaningful than it was, in our early history.

Almighty God,

Strengthen the resolve of the people who have come throughout the world to make America their home.

Help us to appreciate the opportunities that are ours as we struggle to bring harmony to an unsettled world.

May we balance our concern for justice with a willingness to display mercy and may our concern for security be tempered with a willingness to take risks which will produce worthwhile change for the good of all people.

O Lord, we pray for Your guidance as we work together for the best interest of our communities, our nation and our world.

When times are prosperous, let us be thankful andin troubled timesmay our deepest trust be in You. Amen.

Motions and Resolutions

 

 

Reps. Sabo, Brixie, Chirkun, Haadsma, Hood, Kuppa, Sneller, Sowerby, Stone and Witwer offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 265.

A resolution to declare May 2020 as Oak Wilt Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Oak wilt, a deadly disease of oak trees caused by a fungal pathogen, is threatening Michigan痴 oak trees; and

Whereas, Oak wilt is an invasive species found in Michigan and much of the eastern and central United States and is responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of oak trees; and

Whereas, The oak wilt fungus can be spread by common sap beetles from infected oak trees to freshly wounded healthy oak trees, especially during spring and early summer, quickly killing red oak species; and

Whereas, The oak wilt fungus can also be transported long distances in infected oak firewood and unprocessed wood products; and

Whereas, New infections and spread of oak wilt can be limited and prevented by avoiding unnecessary pruning or wounding of oak trees during the high risk period of April 15 through July 15; and

Whereas, Nearly 500 million oak trees make up an important part of Michigan痴 rural and community forests, providing a significant source of food and habitat for wildlife and adding immeasurable beauty and character to Michigan痴 diverse landscapes and communities; and

Whereas, Oak trees are also an important part of the outdoor recreation and wood products industries that help sustain Michigan痴 environment and economy; and

Whereas, The economic and ecological costs associated with oak wilt and its impacts to communities, utilities, outdoor recreation, forestry and wood products and other industries are significant; and

Whereas, All residents are encouraged to learn about oak wilt and the many ways to prevent its spread; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare May 2020 as Oak Wilt Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Reps. Tyrone Carter, Brixie, Chirkun, Haadsma, Hood, Kuppa, Shannon, Sneller and Sowerby offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 266.

A resolution to oppose actions by the United States Environmental Protection Agency to weaken the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards.

Whereas, The Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) are a federal rule that regulates emissions of mercury and other hazardous air pollutants from coal- and oil-fired power plants. The MATS rule was put in place to protect the health of people across the country, particularly children and seniors who are more vulnerable to the health impacts of mercury and other harmful pollutants; and

Whereas, On April 16, 2020, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized its conclusion that it is not 殿ppropriate and necessary to regulate the emissions of air toxics from power plants because the economic costs are higher than the public health benefits of the rule; and

Whereas, EPA痴 decision was based on a flawed cost-benefit analysis of the rule that disregards the indirect impacts on public health, referred to as co-benefits, and does not include any of the new scientific evidence demonstrating the direct benefits of the rule. The decision will remove EPA痴 legal justification for enforcing the MATS rule and will leave the rule vulnerable to future court challenges; and

Whereas, This change will undermine regulations limiting mercury and other toxins, jeopardizing the health of Michigan residents both from pollution and COVID-19. Mortality rates from COVID-19 tend to be higher in counties with higher levels of long-term air pollution. Communities of color, which already suffer from a disproportionate burden of illness and death, could be particularly affected by these regulatory changes; and

Whereas, Human exposure is not limited to the air we breathe. When coal is burned, toxins, including mercury, fall from the sky into our lakes and streams or are swept into our waterways by rainfall and snowmelt. Once it is in our water, mercury becomes part of the food chain and builds up in large fish that are often headed to consumer markets. A large number of Michigan痴 waters cannot be enjoyed to their fullest because of mercury pollution; and

Whereas, This rollback runs counter to decades of scientific consensus on the health and environmental hazards of mercury. The harmful effects of mercury on people and wildlife are well-documented. In Michigan, pregnant women are warned against eating certain fish due to the mercury levels in fish. Mercury accumulates in the body over time, which can damage a baby痴 developing brain and nervous system, impairing the child痴 IQ and motor skills. The devastating health effects of mercury are undeniable; and

Whereas, Despite the COVID-19 crisis we are facing today, the Trump administration and the EPA continue their series of attacks on public health and the Great Lakes, compounding the health and economic impacts of the pandemic. Rolling back environmental controls will increase pollution in our air, lakes, rivers, and streams with devastating effects on human health, tourism, businesses, and our state痴 economy; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we oppose actions by the United States Environmental Protection Agency to weaken the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation.

 

 

Reps. Hoitenga, Steven Johnson, Hornberger, Reilly, Rendon, Meerman, Crawford, Maddock, Markkanen and Berman offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 267.

A resolution to memorialize the Congress of the United States to not enact a federal bailout for states.

Whereas, The COVID-19 Pandemic has led to a significant economic disruption in the United States. In order to limit the spread of the COVID-19, several governors, including Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, have ordered nonessential businesses and schools to close and mandated that people stay at home, except for certain essential activities; and

Whereas, These decisions have directly led to a severe decline in tax revenue in these states. As businesses are closed and employees have been laid off, the projected revenue from income, sales, and other state taxes has fallen off dramatically; and

Whereas, Some states have declared that they will need a bailout from the federal government to replace this lost revenue and avoid cutting services. These governors argue that without unrestricted funding from the federal government the states will need to make cuts to essential services and face an even steeper climb out of the economic downturn caused by the Pandemic; and

Whereas, Congress has already provided significant economic support to the states in previous COVID-19 related stimulus bills. It has properly limited that support to helping states pay for costs related directly to responding to the Pandemic. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act included a $150 billion Coronavirus Relief Fund for the states along with additional funding for education, elections security, and other state functions; and

Whereas, States like Michigan have practiced responsible fiscal policy and are prepared to address revenue shortfalls without a federal bailout. They have avoided taking on significant debt, accumulated rainy day funds, and addressed long-term obligations. Some state rainy day funds alone could cover a significant portion of annual expenditures; and

Whereas, Other states have non-existent rainy day funds and have accumulated significant debt through pension obligations and other sources. They have avoided making the tough budgetary decisions, failed to plan property for the inevitable economic downturns, and demonstrated themselves to be poor stewards of taxpayer money; and

Whereas, It should not be incumbent on the federal government and American taxpayers to bail out states for their fiscal irresponsibility. Bailing out states that have failed to budget responsibly will incentivize this type of behavior to continue in the future. By telling states that the federal government will not step in to save them in times of economic stress, there will be no reason for these states to continue to be irresponsible with taxpayer money in the future; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we memorialize the Congress of the United States to not enact a federal bailout for states; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, the President of the United States Senate, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Government Operations.

 

 

Reps. Hope, Brixie, Chirkun, Hood, Kuppa and Sowerby offered the following resolution:

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Government Operations.

 

 

Reps. Meerman, Leutheuser, Miller, Paquette, Wozniak, Hoitenga, Frederick, Markkanen, Yaroch, Calley, Filler, Allor, O樽alley, Eisen, Bollin, Lightner and Kahle offered the following concurrent resolution:

House Concurrent Resolution No. 24.

A concurrent resolution to demand that the Governor compile and make publicly available certain data, to encourage medical professionals to provide elective medical procedures, and to encourage the people of Michigan to continue to practice safe social distancing.

Whereas, COVID-19 is a respiratory disease that can result in serious illness and death; and

Whereas, In Executive Order 2020-17, Governor Whitmer prohibited hospitals, clinics, and medical professionals from conducting elective medical procedures, including non-essential preventive care, even in cases where hospitals and medical professionals have the capacity to safely do so; and

Whereas, Governor Whitmer has not provided and made available to the public, daily, county-level data on COVID-19 hospitalizations, hospital occupancy rates, emergency room visits, or medical staffing numbers. Providing these and other data would improve government transparency and accountability and would allow Michigan residents to learn more about the state of the COVID-19 Pandemic in their area; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That we demand that the Governor compile and make available within three days from the date of this concurrent resolution, in a manner easily accessible by the public, detailed data summarized by county on:

     The daily number of available hospital beds occupied by all patients since January 1, 2020, segregated by in-patient beds, negative air flow beds, and intensive care unit (ICU) beds, as provided by the hospitals.

     The daily number of available hospital beds occupied by confirmed COVID-19 patients since January 1, 2020, segregated by in-patient beds, negative air flow beds, and ICU beds, as provided by the hospitals.

     The daily number of emergency room visits in total and the daily number of emergency room visits by patients testing positive for COVID-19 since January 1, 2020.

     The daily number of confirmed COVID-19 hospitalizations and confirmed COVID-19 deaths that are related to retirement homes or nursing homes since January 1, 2020.

     The daily number of confirmed COVID-19 hospitalizations and confirmed COVID-19 deaths of individuals who have had other pre-existing or underlying health conditions since January 1, 2020, with segregation of those health conditions and a breakdown of confirmed COVID-19 hospitalizations and confirmed COVID-19 deaths by age, gender, and race.

     The daily number of ventilators available and daily inventories of hospital personal protective equipment (PPE) since March 10, 2020.

     The daily quantities of PPE possessed by the state government and the quantities distributed to each hospital since March 10, 2020.

     The number of medical professionals who have been furloughed, had work hours reduced, or received a cut in pay since March 10, 2020.

     The daily number of COVID-19 tests conducted since March 10, 2020, including positive and negative results.

; and be it further

Resolved, That we demand that all data related to emergency room visits, hospitalizations, and deaths related to COVID-19 patients be confirmed to be COVID-19 positive patients, and the date of the emergency visit, hospitalization, or death be recorded as the actual date of occurrence, not the date of any data adjustments being made subsequently; and be it further

Resolved, That we encourage the people of Michigan to continue to follow national guidelines for safe social distancing and take steps to protect the populations most at risk, including those residing in nursing homes and retirement homes; and be it further

Resolved, That hospitals, clinics, and medical professionals should have the freedom to provide elective procedures and preventive care where it is deemed appropriate based on staffing capacity, hospital capacity, and availability of PPE and as medical professionals in those facilities determine the best approach to implement national guidelines for safe social distancing; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Governor.

The concurrent resolution was referred to the Committee on Health Policy.

Messages from the Governor

 

 

The following message from the Governor was received May 26, 2020 and read:

 

EXECUTIVE ORDER

 

No. 2020-104

 

Increasing COVID-19 testing by expanding the scope of practice for certain professionals and encouraging the establishment of community testing locations

 

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory disease that can result in serious illness or death. It is caused by a new strain of coronavirus not previously identified in humans and easily spread from person to person. There is currently no approved vaccine or antiviral treatment for this disease.

On March 10, 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services identified the first two presumptive-positive cases of COVID-19 in Michigan. On that same day, I issued Executive Order 2020-4. This order declared a state of emergency across the state of Michigan under section 1 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963, the Emergency Management Act, 1976 PA 390, as amended (EMA), MCL 30.401 et seq., and the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act of 1945, 1945 PA 302, as amended (EPGA), MCL 10.31 et seq.

Since then, the virus spread across Michigan, bringing deaths in the thousands, confirmed cases in the tens of thousands, and deep disruption to this state痴 economy, homes, and educational, civic, social, and religious institutions. On April 1, 2020, in response to the widespread and severe health, economic, and social harms posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, I issued Executive Order 2020-33. This order expanded on Executive Order 2020-4 and declared both a state of emergency and a state of disaster across the State of Michigan under section 1 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963, the Emergency Management Act, and the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act of 1945. And on April 30, 2020, finding that COVID-19 had created emergency and disaster conditions across the State of Michigan, I issued Executive Order 2020-67 to continue the emergency declaration under the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act, as well as Executive Order 2020-68 to issue new emergency and disaster declarations under the Emergency Management Act.

Those executive orders have been challenged in Michigan House of Representatives and Michigan Senate v Whitmer. On May 21, 2020, the Court of Claims ruled that Executive Order 2020-67 is a valid exercise of authority under the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act but that Executive Order 2020-68 is not a valid exercise of authority under the Emergency Management Act. Both of those rulings are likely to be appealed.

On May 22, 2020, I issued Executive Order 2020-99, again finding that the COVID-19 pandemic constitutes a disaster and emergency throughout the State of Michigan. That order constituted a state of emergency declaration under the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act of 1945. And, to the extent the governor may declare a state of emergency and a state of disaster under the Emergency Management Act when emergency and disaster conditions exist yet the legislature has declined to grant an extension request, that order also constituted a state of emergency and state of disaster declaration under that act.

The Emergency Powers of the Governor Act provides a sufficient legal basis for issuing this executive order. In relevant part, it provides that, after declaring a state of emergency, 鍍he governor may promulgate reasonable orders, rules, and regulations as he or she considers necessary to protect life and property or to bring the emergency situation within the affected area under control. MCL 10.31(1).

Nevertheless, subject to the ongoing litigation and the possibility that current rulings may be overturned or otherwise altered on appeal, I also invoke Emergency Management Act as a basis for executive action to combat the spread of COVID-19 and mitigate the effects of this emergency on the people of Michigan, with the intent to preserve the rights and protections provided by the EMA. The EMA vests the governor with broad powers and duties to 田op[e] with dangers to this state or the people of this state presented by a disaster or emergency, which the governor may implement through 兎xecutive orders, proclamations, and directives having the force and effect of law. MCL 30.403(1)(2). This executive order falls within the scope of those powers and duties, and to the extent the governor may declare a state of emergency and a state of disaster under the Emergency Management Act when emergency and disaster conditions exist yet the legislature has not granted an extension request, they too provide a sufficient legal basis for this order.

To help prevent the further spread of COVID-19 and provide protections against the dangers to this state posed by the COVID-19 emergency, it is reasonable and necessary to enable a broader range of qualified medical professionals to order COVID-19 tests and to encourage the establishment of community testing locations by reducing barriers to siting and staffing such test sites.

Acting under the Michigan Constitution of 1963 and Michigan law, I order the following:

1. It is the public policy of the State of Michigan that testing for COVID-19 should be available to any individual with reason to be tested for COVID-19 without any out-of-pocket cost to such individual.

(a) For purposes of this order, 菟erson with reason to be tested for COVID-19 includes anyone who meets at least one of the COVID-19 testing prioritization criteria specified by the Chief Medical Executive.

(b) A person with reason to be tested for COVID-19 may receive a test at a community testing location without securing an order from a medical provider in advance. Medical providers will be available to order testing upon arrival. A person who wishes to be tested may call the coronavirus hotline at 1-888-535-6136 or visit www.michigan.gov/coronavirustest to find an appropriate testing location.

(c) DHHS may issue orders and directives to implement this section.

2. Qualifications.

(a) Nothing in this order is intended to alter any obligation of a health insurance company, pursuant to the terms of an insurance policy, to cover costs related to COVID-19 testing for any policyholder.

(b) Nothing in this order is intended to supersede the medical judgment of any health care provider.

3. A licensee holding one of the following license types may establish and administer a COVID-19 testing service without an additional state license or permit at any site, with permission from the person with the right to occupy and exclude others from the property:

(a) Physician痴 assistant, licensed under Part 170 of the Public Health Code, 1978 PA 368, as amended (撤ublic Health Code), MCL 333.17001 et seq.;

(b) Advanced practice registered nurse, licensed practical nurse, or registered professional nurse, licensed under Part 172 of the Public Health Code, MCL 17201 et seq.;

(c) Pharmacist, licensed under Part 177 of the Public Health Code, MCL 333.17701 et seq.

4. The licensees identified in section 2 must be considered to be persons authorized to order a laboratory test that has been classified by the Food and Drug Administration as moderate or high complexity, consistent with section 20521 of the Public Health Code, 1978 PA 368, as amended. MCL 333.20521.

5. Strict compliance with the scope-of-practice, supervision, and delegation provisions of the parts of the public health code identified in paragraph 1 of this order are temporarily suspended to the extent necessary to allow licensees governed by these parts to comply with section 6 of this order, provided the licensee is properly trained to perform those tasks and functions.

6. Licensees administering a COVID-19 testing service or testing laboratory shall comply with the following:

(a) Any specimen collected at a COVID-19 testing service shall be tested at a laboratory or entity in accordance with federal CLIA regulations as facilitated by the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. High-complexity tests, including PCR tests, must be tested at a laboratory that is CLIA certified. Waived tests, including rapid point-of-care diagnostic tests, must be tested at an entity that has obtained a CLIA waiver.

(b) The licensee shall provide personnel with any training necessary to operate a COVID-19 testing service.

(c) The licensee shall comply with any reporting requirements issued by DHHS.

(d) COVID-19 testing service personnel shall use proper personal protective equipment when administering and conducting specimen collection and testing.

(e) A licensee collecting specimens for testing who does not perform testing shall securely store specimens pending retrieval by the entity that will test the specimens.

(f) A licensee shall refer patients to appropriate medical providers for follow up, if not available through the entity conducting testing.

7. Unlicensed individuals may perform any of the tasks and functions of COVID-19 testing services, including screening of patients, observing self-swabbing, temporarily storing specimens pending transmittal to a laboratory, transmitting specimens to a laboratory, reporting test results to the Michigan Disease Surveillance System, and referring patients to appropriate medical providers for follow-up, provided:

(a) The unlicensed individuals have been trained to perform the tasks and functions they are performing; and

(b) The unlicensed individuals are supervised by a licensed medical provider referenced in section 2 of this order or by county or municipal health personnel who have been properly trained to supervise the performance of the tasks and functions the unlicensed individuals are performing.

8. Insofar as section 11 of the Emergency Management Act, MCL 30.411, remains in effect, anyone establishing, volunteering, or working at a community testing location constitutes personnel of a disaster relief force, and, with respect to the activities of COVID-19 testing, are entitled to the same rights and immunities as provided by law for the employees of this state under MCL 30.411(1)(c).

9. Definitions.

(a) For purpose of this order, 鼎OVID-19 testing service means any operation that administers the collection of samples to be tested by a CLIA certified or CLIA waived entity for COVID‑19 to individuals in this state.

(b) For purposes of this order, 田ommunity testing location means a COVID-19 testing service that (a) offers testing for any individual with reason to be tested for COVID-19; (b) does not require any out-of-pocket payment for a COVID-19 test for any individual with reason to be tested for COVID-19; (c) does not require a person with reason to be tested for COVID-19 to obtain a prescription for testing in advance of booking an appointment; and (d) has medical providers available and able to order a COVID-19 test onsite.

10. This order is effective immediately upon issuance.

Given under my hand and the Great Seal of the State of Michigan.

The following message from the Governor was received May 26, 2020 and read:

 

EXECUTIVE ORDER

 

No. 2020-105

 

Declaration of State of Emergency

 

On May 19, 2020, I issued Executive Order 2020-94 declaring a state of emergency for the city of Midland and the county of Midland due to severe flooding as a result of the failure of the Edenville and Sanford Dam structures along the Tittabawassee River. On May 22, 2020, I amended and expanded the state declaration of emergency, issuing Executive Order 2020-98 to include impacted areas of Arenac, Gladwin, and Saginaw counties. This event has also caused severe flooding in Iosco County.

In response, the county of Iosco, has taken several actions that include declaring a local state of emergency; activating disaster response and recovery operations; evacuating and providing shelter to affected residents; and issuing emergency public information. The assistance of voluntary organizations and the state are required to protect public health, safety, and property, and to lessen or avert more severe and lasting harm to the community.

Despite these measures, local resources are insufficient to respond to the extreme flooding under the current conditions. State assistance and other outside resources are necessary to effectively respond to, and recover from, the impacts of flooding.

Under the Emergency Management Act, 1976 PA 390, MCL 30.403(4), 甜t]he governor shall, by executive order or proclamation, declare a state of emergency if he or she finds that an emergency has occurred or that the threat of an emergency exists. Therefore, acting under the Michigan Constitution of 1963 and Michigan law, including the Emergency Management Act, 1976 PA 390, MCL 30.401 to 30.421, I find it reasonable and necessary to amend and expand Executive Order 2020-94, and order the following:

1. In addition to the city of Midland and the counties of Midland, Arenac, Gladwin, and Saginaw, a state of emergency is also declared for the county of Iosco.

2. Any emergency order issued in response to the COVID-19 crisis is temporarily suspended in these counties to the extent such order impedes the emergency response effort under this declaration.

3. The Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division of the Department of State Police shall coordinate and augment all state efforts and may call upon all state departments to utilize available resources to assist in the designated area pursuant to the Michigan Emergency Management Plan.

The state of emergency is terminated at such time as the threats to public health, safety, and property caused by the emergency no longer exist, and appropriate programs have been implemented to recover from the effects of this emergency, but in no case later than June 16, 2020, unless extended as provided by 1976 Public Act 390, as amended.
