Rep. Sarah Anthony, from the 68th District, offered the following invocation:

 

敵od of our weary years,

God of our silent tears,

Thou Who has brought us thus far on the way;

Thou Who has by Thy might

Led us into the light,

Keep us forever in the path, we pray.

Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,

Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee;

Shadowed beneath Thy hand,

May we forever stand,

True to our God,

True to our native land.

Almighty God, we are truly thankful for this day, acknowledging that it is a day You have made, and You have instructed us to rejoice and be glad in it.

So, we gather together with joyful hearts giving thanks for another opportunity to serve Your people.

We thank You for giving us wisdom, compassion, and discernment as we address the many issues facing our nation and state. We pray for our economy, our education system, our health care. We pray for civility and unity in this Chamber and across the state.

We ask that You protect our brave men and women in uniform, from our first responders and our military to our health care providers and front-line workers. Please keep them safe as they serve us each and every day.

Lord, help us see beyond our political parties and ideological differences and, instead see the humanity in one another. Help us to be more like You.

And finally, as we ask that You bring comfort to the men, women, and children impacted by the COVID‑19 pandemic. We pray for healing and restoration for the people of this state.

These blessings and others we do ask in Your name, Amen.

Motions and Resolutions

 

 

Reps. Fink, Bellino, Tisdel, Frederick, Filler, Peterson, Paquette, Brann, Anthony, Roth, Damoose, Outman, Beeler, Maddock, Thanedar, Posthumus, Borton, Markkanen, Kuppa, LaGrand, Kahle, Brabec, Wakeman, O樽alley, Yaroch, Lilly, Whiteford, Breen, Tyrone Carter, Cavanagh, Garza, Green, Haadsma, Lasinski, Morse, Sneller, Weiss and Witwer offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 32.

A resolution to declare February 14, 2021, as Frederick Douglass Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Frederick Douglass was born into slavery in February 1818 in the state of Maryland, never knowing the exact date of his own birth but adopting Valentine痴 Day as his birthday after his mother Harriet Bailey called him her 鏑ittle Valentine; and

Whereas, Mr. Douglass escaped from bondage at the age of 20, whereupon he began a life dedicated to the abolition of slavery in the United States and the recognition of Black Americans as free and equal citizens; and

Whereas, Frederick Douglass worked throughout his childhood to learn to read and write, even against the wishes of the family which claimed to own him, and shortly after his escape from slavery became a famed and persuasive orator, detailing to Northern audiences the horrors of life in the South for slaves and arguing for the fundamental equality of all Americans; and

Whereas, Mr. Douglass made several visits to Michigan, where he met with other proponents of abolition across the state, including in Detroit, Hillsdale, and Ypsilanti, and gave speeches on civil rights; and

Whereas, In freedom, Frederick Douglass married Anna Murray and raised five children, and following Anna痴 death married Helen Pitts; and

Whereas, During the Civil War, Frederick Douglass recruited the first Black military unit in United States history, the 54th Massachusetts Infantry, which included his sons Charles and Lewis; and

Whereas, Mr. Douglass knew and advised many prominent American statesmen and citizens of his day, including Ida B. Wells, Susan B. Anthony, Charles Remond, William Lloyd Garrison, and John Marshall Harlan, as well as Abraham Lincoln and every President of the United States who served after Lincoln until Douglass death in 1888; and

Whereas, Mr. Douglass served our country as U.S. Marshall and Recorder of Deeds for the District of Columbia, and as Minister to Haiti; and

Whereas, To this day, Frederick Douglass autobiographies and speeches serve as powerful testimonies to the motto of Douglass newspaper the North Star, which asserts 迭ight is of no sex裕ruth is of no Color宥od is the Father of us all, and we are all Brethren; and

Whereas, February 14, 2021 will be recognized as the 203rd anniversary of Frederick Douglass birth; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare February 14, 2021, as Frederick Douglass Day in the state of Michigan.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Reps. Carra, Borton, Posthumus, Eisen, Martin, Beeler, Fink, Outman, Marino, Reilly, Steven Johnson and Meerman offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 33.

A resolution to support the Senate痴 disapproval of gubernatorial appointments and encourage the Senate to continue to reject appointments by the Governor to state boards, commissions, and agencies so long as the executive branch continues to operate unilaterally without the participation of the Legislature.

Whereas, In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) have taken unilateral action to shut down the economy. These unilateral actions, which have affected every Michigander, have forced businesses to close, workers to lose their jobs, and children to be out of school and sports; and

Whereas, The Legislature has not been given a reasonable opportunity to have input into major portions of the state痴 response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The elected members of the Legislature are the voices of their constituents in the Capitol. By denying the Legislature a voice in the process, the Governor and MDHHS have denied the people of Michigan their voice; and

Whereas, The Senate has been compelled to demonstrate the Legislature痴 role as a co-equal branch of state government and use the tools given to it by the state constitution and statute to reject appointments by the Governor to state boards, commissions, and agencies. The authority to advise and consent on gubernatorial appointments is an important check on the power of the executive branch; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we support the Senate痴 disapproval of gubernatorial appointments and encourage the Senate to continue to use its authority to reject appointments by the Governor to state boards, commissions, and agencies so long as the Governor, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and other state departments continue to operate unilaterally without the participation of the Legislature in restricting the Michigan economy, sporting events, and other aspects of life in our state; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Senate, Governor, and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Oversight.

 

 

Reps. Martin, Bezotte, Filler, Beson, Green, Haadsma, Lasinski and Thanedar offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 34.

A resolution to memorialize the Congress of the United States to exempt unemployment income from taxable income for the 2020 tax year.

Whereas, The COVID-19 Pandemic and efforts to mitigate the virus spread have led to the most significant economic downturn since the Great Depression. In order to contain the virus, non-essential businesses have been forced to close or reduce operations for prolonged periods; and

Whereas, The economic downturn has led to an unprecedented surge in unemployment claims. Nationally, tens of millions of Americans have filed for unemployment benefits. In Michigan alone, more than 3 million residents, or about 30 percent of the state痴 population, have filed for benefits; and

Whereas, Unemployment benefits have been the only source of income for some residents and families. These benefits have provided critical support in keeping many Americans afloat during this crisis, but some people have still faced difficult choices. With benefits unable to cover all expenses, some have been forced to choose between paying for rent, utilities, or other necessities; and

Whereas, Unemployment benefits are considered taxable income and are subject to the federal income tax, which reduces the amount of benefits received. Reducing the amount of benefits through taxation during this period of increased reliance on unemployment income compounds the stress for those who are facing a prolonged period of reduced income and economic uncertainty; and

Whereas, Temporarily exempting unemployment income from taxable income would provide a significant financial lifeline to Michigan residents and Americans throughout the country. It would provide additional flexibility to afford necessities. For those who are not struggling to pay for essential expenses, the move would provide more disposable income to support small businesses and stimulate the economy; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we memorialize the Congress of the United States to exempt unemployment income from taxable income for the 2020 tax year; and be it further

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

 

 

Reps. Stone, Rogers, Steenland, Brixie, Kuppa, Sowerby, Hood, Brenda Carter, Hertel, Ellison, O誰eal, Steckloff, Thanedar, Breen, Scott, Neeley, Aiyash, Cambensy, Garza, Haadsma, Tyrone Carter, Witwer, Weiss, Clemente, Cynthia Johnson, Puri, Brabec, Sneller, Koleszar, Bolden, Anthony, Rabhi, Camilleri, Young, Cavanagh, LaGrand, Jones, Manoogian, Lasinski, Morse and Shannon offered the following concurrent resolution:

House Concurrent Resolution No. 3.

A concurrent resolution to urge the United States Department of Education to grant waivers for Michigan state assessment requirements under the Every Student Succeeds Act.

Whereas, State and federal laws require schools to assess student learning every year in specific grade levels and subjects. Under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), states must administer annual statewide assessments. If states do not meet certain requirements, the U.S. Department of Education may withhold federal funding; and

Whereas, Michigan meets this federal requirement in part by requiring schools to administer standardized tests. The Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-STEP) is given to students online in grades 3‑7 to measure their knowledge of state standards in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics. The Michigan Department of Education also administers the PSAT 8/9 which replaced the M-STEP ELA and mathematics assessment for grade 8. The M-STEP and the PSAT 8/9 aim to provide valuable information to parents and teachers on student academic performance that help schools and districts evaluate curriculum and programming effectiveness; and

Whereas, While the PSAT 8/9 is paper-based and the M-STEP is administered online, students normally take both assessments under the supervision of an administrator who can ensure test security. Maintaining uniform procedures for test administration helps ensure that results are accurate and meaningful and that no student has an unfair advantage in their assessment performance; and

Whereas, In light of the uncertainty of in-person school attendance for the rest of the 2020-21 school year due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, it will be difficult to prepare uniform procedures for administration of state assessments. This may result in decreased test security and overall confusion regarding the process, which may detract from the reliability of the assessment results; and

Whereas, The U.S. Department of Education announced that they will grant a waiver to any state that is unable to assess its students due to the ongoing national emergency brought on by the COVID-19 Pandemic for the current 2019-2020 school year. The decision was made in order to allow students to focus on learning and staying healthy while allowing teachers time to adapt to remote learning; and

Whereas, School districts will continue to face enormous burdens and challenges as they scramble to prepare for education under new and uncertain circumstances in the upcoming school year. It is essential that we allow them flexibility to ease some of those burdens. While state assessments provide valuable information, we should allow schools to focus their limited resources and energy on other initiatives; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That we urge the United States Department of Education to grant waivers for Michigan state assessment requirements under the Every Student Succeeds Act for the 2020-2021 school year; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the United States Secretary of Education.

The concurrent resolution was referred to the Committee on Education.
