Lord God of heaven and earth in whose hands rests all of creation庸rom the day 183 years ago when the peninsulas of this great state joined the Union, until this very moment謡e here in Michigan have raised a joyful song of praise for Your goodness.

Your blessings upon our state擁ts fields, hills, and seemingly endless shores預re the compass pointing us true north to acknowledge You as their source and origin.

In these halls now stand men and women dedicated to lead, govern, and serve Your people. Lift up Your face to shine upon them and grant them wise and discerning hearts, that they may perceive with clear sight and pursue with untiring devotion the pressing needs for which they now assemble to address. May their endeavors in this Senate be directed today and always by the true wisdom that comes from above, and may the fruits of their labors be as encompassed by good will as the shores of this state which we proudly call home, are ringed with the fresh waters of life.

To You, O God, be honor, glory, and praise forever and ever. Amen.

A resolution to recognize February 2020 as Black History Month.

Whereas, The origins of Black History Month began in 1915 after the Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution abolished slavery in the United States. Since 1976, every U.S. President has adopted the month of February as Black History Month, an annual celebration of African-American achievements and roles in our history; and

Whereas, As a result of the Civil Rights Movement and a growing awareness of black identity, Black History Month is a time to reflect on the burdens of racial prejudice and explore, understand, and appreciate the identities and cultures across and within the African diaspora; and

Whereas, We pay tribute to Dr. Carter G. Woodson who organized a national Negro History Week as an initiative to bring national attention to the contributions of black people throughout American history, evolving into a month-long celebration of black progress and power; and

Whereas, President Gerald R. Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, calling upon the public to 都eize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history; and

Whereas, Michigan recognizes the injustices that African-Americans have endured and commends the African-American community for the continuous pursuit of overcoming those injustices while changing the course and nature of history. We honor the prominent leaders and activists who have paved the way for equality and justice; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That the members of this legislative body recognize February 2020 as Black History Month; and be it further

Resolved, That we honor the contributions and sacrifices made toward building pride in black history and educating all Americans; and be it further

Resolved, That we join other organizations throughout the state of Michigan and this country to use this occasion to raise awareness about the hardships African-Americans have endured, celebrate the milestones achieved, and to continue the unrelenting pursuit of equality and justice for all.

Pending the order that, under rule 3.204, the resolution be referred to the Committee on Government Operations,

Senator MacGregor moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The resolution was adopted.

Because of the Civil Rights Movement and a growing awareness of black identity, Black History Month is a time to reflect on the burdens of racial prejudice and explore, understand, and appreciate the identities and cultures across and within the African diaspora.

 

Senator Alexander痴 statement is as follows:

We pay tribute to Dr. Carter G. Woodson who organized a national Negro History Week as an initiative to bring national attention to the contributions of black people throughout American history that has evolved into a month-long celebration of black progress and power.

Together we honor the prominent leaders and activists who have paved the way for equality and justice including William Webb Ferguson, Charles A. Roxboro, Cora Brown, and Charlene White, who paved the way for us to be in this august body. We honor the contributions and sacrifices made in building pride in black history and educating all Americans as we join other organizations throughout the state of Michigan and this country to use this occasion to raise awareness of the hardships African Americans have endured, celebrate the milestones we have achieved, and continue the unrelenting pursuit of equality and justice for all.

 

 

Senators Stamas, Victory, MacDonald, Outman, Zorn, Bizon, Bumstead, Daley, LaSata, Lauwers, Horn, Barrett, Runestad, VanderWall, Johnson, Nesbitt, Lucido, Shirkey, Theis, Schmidt, MacGregor and McBroom offered the following concurrent resolution:

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 22.

A concurrent resolution calling for the responsible use of the state痴 transportation bonding authority and to state the Legislature痴 intent regarding future debt service payments.

Whereas, Article IX, Section 9 of the Constitution of the State of Michigan of 1963 grants authority to the Legislature to authorize the issuance of transportation bonds against constitutionally protected revenue designated for usage by the state. To facilitate the issuance of bonds, the Legislature, through statute, has authorized the State Transportation Commission to issue transportation bonds; and

Whereas, The State Transportation Commission is a constitutionally established body appointed by the Governor, subject to the advice and consent of the Senate. This body, not the Governor, is tasked with determining policy for the department, including, but not limited to, the financing mechanisms utilized by the department; and

Whereas, Neither the state constitution nor state law authorizes the Governor to issue transportation bonds; and

Whereas, The state of Michigan continues to make annual debt payments on transportation bonds first issued over 25 years ago, diminishing available funds for annual road projects; and

Whereas, With the issuance of new bonds, there could be even less available funding for state roads than there is today, due to 30 more years of annual debt payments to service the new bonds; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That we call for the responsible use of the state痴 transportation bonding authority; and be it further

Resolved, That it is the intent of the Legislature that the total amount of bonds and notes issued pursuant to MCL 247.668b for transportation purposes, described in the second paragraph of Article IX, Section 9 of the Constitution of the State of Michigan of 1963, shall not exceed an amount as will be serviced as to the maximum principal and interest requirements by a sum equal to 15% of the total of the amount of money received from taxes, the use of which is restricted by Article IX, Section 9, and which is deposited in the state treasury to the credit of the State Trunk Line Fund during the state fiscal year immediately preceding the issuance of the bonds or notes, unless the growth rate of taxes exceeds 25% from the previous fiscal year; and be it further

Resolved, That it is the intent of the Legislature not to increase future debt service appropriations above the levels authorized for Fiscal Year 2019-2020; and be it further

Resolved, That it is the intent of the Legislature not to authorize appropriations for debt service payments for bonds longer than 10 years; and be it further

Resolved, That we urge the State Transportation Commission to provide a copy of this resolution to all individuals and entities who seek to purchase transportation bonds; and be it further

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

Pending the order that, under rule 3.204, the concurrent resolution be referred to the Committee on Government Operations,

Senator MacGregor moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The question being on the adoption of the concurrent resolution,

Senator MacGregor moved that the concurrent resolution be referred to the Committee on Appropriations.

The motion prevailed.
