Rep. Annette Glenn, from the 98th District, offered the following invocation:

 

徹ur beloved Father Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done.

We humbly come before Thee with immense gratitude for the blessings謡ithout number that You have bestowed on each of us. Each breath we take; each step is a gift from You. Each person we serve謡e池e blessed to be Your partner, Your hands, in lightening their burdens. You致e blessed us with a free country, where each of us here have chosen to serve in this chamber and to serve others. Let us not be weary in well doing.

In Isaiah 40 You promise us 奏hey who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Let us never be weary in serving, lifting and loving others.

We serve in a time where troubles can weigh us down on every side. In Joshua 1 You command us to be strong and courageous. To not be afraid or discouraged. You promise that You will be with us wherever we go.

Each day we face the unknown, but our unknown is not unknown to You. In Jeremiah 29 You teach us that You have a plan for each one of us; Your children, and when we call upon You雄ou will hear us. When we seek You雄ou will be found. In Philippians, Paul teaches 選 can do all things through Christ who strengthen me.

Father bless us to see clearly each other預s You see each of us用recious in Thy sight.

Strengthen us as we serve, that we may carry heavier burdens for others, and lighten their loads.

Take our meager gifts and talents and multiply them as You multiplied the 2 loafs of bread and five fish to feed thousands.

Strengthen us to remove the wall of our hearts that keep us from drawing near to You. Show us our weaknesses that we may become strong in You Lord. Refine us, Cleanse us. May we partner with You all the days of Your lives. May we seek first the kingdom of God and Your righteousness.

In the name of Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer, Amen.

Motions and Resolutions

 

 

Reps. Carra, LaFave and Maddock offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 86.

A resolution to urge the United States House of Representatives to adopt a resolution disavowing the January 2021 impeachment of President Donald J. Trump or expel U.S. Representative Maxine Waters for continuing to incite violence.

Whereas, United States Representative Maxine Waters (D-California) has incited violence on multiple occasions. Over the course of the last few years, Congresswoman Waters has frequently encouraged violence, including on Trump Administration officials. On June 23, 2018, she said, 的f you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they池e not welcome anymore, anywhere. Most recently, on April 17, 2021, Congresswoman Waters responded to a reporter who was asking what protestors should do if Officer Derek Chauvin was to not be found guilty of murdering George Floyd by stating, 展e致e got to stay on the street and we致e got to get more active, we致e got to get more confrontational. We致e got to make sure that they know that we mean business.; and

Whereas, The United States House of Representatives impeached Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, for incitement of insurrection. President Trump did not incite violence and was not responsible for any acts of aggression or violence on January 6, 2021. The United States House of Representatives launched no formal investigation of the facts and held no hearings on the matter, breaking with the precedent of every previously held impeachment. Debate on the matter was limited to only two hours on one of the most important votes many of those members would ever take; and

Whereas, It is imperative that the United States House of Representatives not cheapen the process of removing elected officials by engaging in politically driven decisions and proceedings regarding when to seek removal. Consistent standards must be applied in any effort to remove federally elected officials; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge the United States House of Representatives to either adopt a resolution disavowing the January 2021 impeachment of Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, or to expel United States Representative Maxine Waters for continuing to incite violence; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation; and be it further

Resolved, That we request a personal response to this resolution be sent to the Speaker of the Michigan House of Representatives and the Senate Majority Leader within one month of receipt.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Government Operations.

 

 

Reps. Hope, Sowerby, Tyrone Carter, O誰eal, Breen, Hood, Aiyash, Howell, Brenda Carter, Brixie, Kuppa, Koleszar, Rogers, Anthony, Cavanagh, Pohutsky, Stone, Whitsett, Haadsma and Sneller offered the following concurrent resolution:

House Concurrent Resolution No. 6.

A concurrent resolution to memorialize the Congress of the United States to oppose recommendations to privatize and slow the service of the United States Postal Service.

Whereas, The United States Postal Service (USPS) is a core governmental function recognized by our founding fathers in the U.S. Constitution. Article I, Section 8, Clause 7 of the U.S. Constitution grants Congress the power to establish post offices and post roads; and

Whereas, The USPS provides high-quality universal service without taxpayer funding. The USPS receives no tax dollars and funds its operations through the sale of postage products and services. Even without taxpayer funding, the USPS provides excellent service and consistently receives the highest approval ratings of federal departments and agencies; and

Whereas, The USPS is a source of decent and dignified jobs in the United States. The agency employs workers of all nationalities from diverse backgrounds of all kinds. The USPS has more than 500,000 employees at the center of the $1.4 trillion mailing industry that employs 7.5 million Americans. It is also the nation痴 second-largest employer of military veterans; and

Whereas, Proposals to privatize the USPS would limit service and increase prices for Michigan痴 32 rural counties. A privatized postal service will be driven by profit and would lead to increased rates and lost service for rural areas where delivery is more expensive. This will enrich a few private companies at the expense of rural communities in Michigan and across the country; and

Whereas, The current U.S. Postmaster General has proposed numerous changes, including changing service standards that will lead to slower delivery, plant consolidations, and reduced operating hours at post offices. These changes would negatively impact the agency, postal workers, and the American public; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That we memorialize the Congress of the United States to oppose recommendations to privatize the United States Postal Service; and be it further

Resolved, That we memorialize the Congress of the United States to restore service standards to 2012 levels to improve delivery of America痴 mail; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States, 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 concurrent resolution was referred to the Committee on Government Operations.

Messages from the Governor

 

 

The following message from the Governor was received April 21, 2021 and read:

 

EXECUTIVE ORDER

No. 2021-5

Michigan Jail Reform Advisory Council

Department of Technology, Management and Budget

 

The Michigan Joint Task Force on Jail and Pretrial Incarceration, created by Executive Order No. 2019-10 and co-chaired by Michigan痴 Lieutenant Governor and Chief Justice, issued its final report and recommendations in January of 2020. The Task Force found significant growth in county jail populations, costing taxpayers nearly half a billion dollars annually. Jail populations have been driven equally by pretrial and post-conviction incarceration, with limited guidance in state law on the preferred or presumed intervention. The Task Force recommended extensive state policy changes related to traffic violations, arrests, behavioral health diversion, pretrial release and detention, speedy trials, sentencing, probation and parole, financial barriers for system-involved individuals, victim services, and data collection.

The Michigan Legislature passed many of the Task Force recommendations with bipartisan support in December of 2020, which were signed into law on January 4, 2021. The legislature is considering other reforms, as well.

As a national leader in criminal justice reform, Michigan must prioritize the full and timely implementation of these jail reforms and track related outcomes. Interdisciplinary, inter-branch coordination is vital for implementing policy and practice changes, developing educational materials, supporting justice system practitioners, and monitoring performance measures.

Section 1 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963 vests the executive power of the State of Michigan in the governor.

Section 8 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963 places each principal department of state government under the supervision of the governor unless otherwise provided.

Section 8 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963 also obligates the governor to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.
