Motions and Resolutions

 

 

The Speaker, on behalf of the entire membership of the House of Representatives, offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 168.

A resolution of tribute offered as a memorial for Douglas A. Bennett, former member of the House of Representatives.

Whereas, It was with great sorrow that the members of the House of Representatives learned about the passing of Doug Bennett. He will be remembered as a dedicated public servant by his constituents in the Muskegon area and the people of the state of Michigan; and

Whereas, Doug Bennett was born and raised in Muskegon and demonstrated a deep commitment to his hometown. Doug Bennett graduated from Ravenna High School in 1964 and completed his journeyman steamfitter痴 apprenticeship at United Association Muskegon, Plumbers and Steamfitters Local Union 154 in 1971. Through hard work and perseverance, Doug Bennett rose through the ranks of union leadership, and served as business manager of his local union of plumbers and steamfitters for two decades. He also served on the Muskegon County Board of Commissioners and the United Way of the Lakeshore Board of Directors, and was a founding member of the Muskegon Economic Growth Alliance (MEGA). Because of his dedication to his community and strong leadership, Doug Bennett was awarded the Harold Workman Labor-Management Cooperation Award in 2007 and the Gary Conrad Award in 2010; and

Whereas, Doug Bennett痴 aptitude for leadership led to his election to the House of Representatives in 2004 to serve the Ninety-second District. During his time in office, Representative Bennett served with distinction as a member of the House Appropriations Committee, and had leadership roles on several Appropriations subcommittees, including vice chair of the Natural Resources and Environment Subcommittee, vice chair of the Corrections Subcommittee, and chair of the Environmental Quality Subcommittee. He was also a member of the committees on Commerce; Natural Resources, Great Lakes, Land Use and Environment; Tax Policy; and Corrections, as well as Appropriations subcommittees on Joint Capital Outlay and Transportation. During his service, he sponsored numerous pieces of legislation on a wide array of topics, such as property tax, economic development, and environmental protection. Representative Bennett retired from the Legislature after serving three terms; and

Whereas, Doug Bennett leaves behind a legacy as a respected leader in his community and advocate for the working class. Doug Bennett will also be remembered as a loving husband to his wife, Helene, and devoted father to his three children, Sherri, Shannon, and Ryan. May Doug Bennett痴 family find comfort in the knowledge that his efforts and contributions will long continue to enrich our state; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we offer this expression of our highest tribute to honor the memory of Doug A. Bennett, a member of the House of Representatives from 2005 to 2010; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Bennett family as evidence of our lasting esteem for his memory.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted by unanimous standing vote.

Messages from the Governor

 

 

The following line items veto message from the Governor was received and read:

 

Executive Office, Lansing, September 29, 2021

Michigan Legislature

State Capitol

Lansing, MI 48909

 

Senators and Representatives,

Today I was proud to sign Enrolled Senate Bill 82 and Enrolled House Bill 4400, which together form the Fiscal Year 2022 state budget. These bipartisan budgets put Michiganders first, making historic investments to help Michiganders get ahead. When we work together, we can deliver on the kitchen-table priorities that matter most growing the middle class, supporting our small businesses, and investing in our communities.

We have proven that together, following the guidance of doctors and public health officials, we can keep families and kids safe, businesses thriving, and classrooms open for in-person learning. That means masking up in school because kids can稚 get vaccinated yet. And it means getting the safe, effective vaccine so that we池e protected from hospitalization and death.

The Public Health Code gives health officials the tools they need to protect people from epidemic diseases like COVID-19. The legislature cannot unwind the Public Health Code in a budget bill or un-appropriate funds because they take issue with the actions of local health departments. Budget boilerplate that purports to prohibit state or local health officials from issuing mask and quarantine orders or to penalize local health departments for using their powers under the Public Health Code violates the Michigan Constitution. Consistent with my duty to uphold the constitution, I will not allow unconstitutional budget language to take effect.

I知 grateful that this legislation preserves the ability of state and local governments to protect their employees from COVID-19. Section 222 of Article 1 a version of which recurs in each department痴 budget  provides a roadmap for public employers to ensure their employees either receive the safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine or undergo regular testing to keep their co-workers safe. It also avoids any conflict with federal law, recognizing that federal authorities may issue vaccination requirements.

Finally, I am using my veto pen to nix seven anti-choice line items. These line items would create a gag rule preventing reproductive health service providers from even mentioning abortion and otherwise make it hard for women to get the healthcare they need. Even as the U.S. Supreme Court allows Texas痴 extreme anti‑choice law to take effect, abortion is still safe and legal in Michigan. I will continue to stand in the way of any efforts to strip away fundamental rights from women or get in the way of doctors ability to do their jobs.

In addition, I note the following boilerplate provisions that violate the Michigan Constitution and will therefore not take effect:

1. Article 3, section 2 of the Michigan Constitution provides: 典he powers of government are divided into three branches: legislative, executive and judicial. No person exercising powers of one branch shall exercise powers properly belonging to another branch except as expressly provided in this constitution. Core executive branch functions include management of department operations; hiring, discipline, and management of personnel; and deliberative decision-making, among others. Boilerplate that attempts to insert the legislature into core executive functions violates the constitutional separation of powers. Accordingly, each of the following provisions is unenforceable:

腹 Certain boilerplate provisions that appear in multiple articles, such as Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Article 1, sections 215, 217, and 218.

腹 Department of Corrections, Article 2, sections 304, 316, and 942.

腹 General Government, Article 5, sections 229, 314(3), 714, 718, 816, 836, 863, 947.

腹 Department of Health and Human Services, Article 6, sections 225, 229, 517, 518, 595, 1222(4), and 1508. Section 514 is also unenforceable to the extent that it requires the Department to comply with recommendations in an Office of Auditor General report.

Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, Article 10, sections 409 and 453. Section 224 is also unenforceable to the extent that it bars the department from taking an action otherwise permitted by law.

腹 Department of Natural Resources, Article 11, section 602.

腹 Department of State Police, Article 12, sections 226, 233, 234, 601(2), 602(2)-(5), 603(3), 604(2), 701(3)-(4), 702(2)-(8), and 704(8)-(9). Section 225 is also unenforceable to the extent that it bars the department from taking an action otherwise permitted by law.

腹 Department of Transportation, Article 13, sections 353 and 357

2. Article 4, section 22 of the Michigan Constitution provides: 鄭ll legislation shall be by bill and may originate in either house. Moreover, article 4, section 33 of the Michigan Constitution provides, in part: 摘very bill passed by the legislature shall be presented to the governor before it becomes law . . . Boilerplate that purports to authorize legislation other than by bill, such as section 218 of Article 1, impermissibly skirts the bill requirement of section 22 and the presentment requirement of section 33 and is therefore unenforceable.

3. Article 4, section 24 of the Michigan Constitution provides, in part: 哲o law shall embrace more than one object, which shall be expressed in its title. Accordingly, because each introduces a second object into SB 82, the following provisions are unenforceable:

腹 General Government, Article 5, section 836.

腹 Department of Health and Human Services, Article 6, section 518.

腹 Department of Transportation, Article 13, sections 601 and 660(2).

4. Article 4, section 25 of the Michigan Constitution provides: 哲o law shall be revised, altered or amended by reference to its title only. The section or sections of the act altered or amended shall be re‑enacted and published at length. Boilerplate that alters statutory requirements with reenactment and publication is therefore unconstitutional and void. Accordingly, each of the following provisions is unenforceable:

腹 Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy, Article 4, sections 225 and 237.

腹 General Government, Article 5, sections 229, 624, 625, 718, 983, 1009 and 1056.

腹 Department of Health and Human Services, Article 6, sections 218, 250, 518, 595, 1222(4), 1305, and 1347.

腹 Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Article 9, sections 510 and 803.

腹 Department of Natural Resources, Article 11, section 602.

腹 Department of Transportation, Article 13, section 302 and 382.

5. Article 4, section 53 of the Michigan Constitution provides: 甜The Auditor General] shall be assigned no duties other than those specified in this section. Any provision that assigns the Legislative Auditor General powers and duties other than those provided for in that section is therefore unconstitutional.

6. Article 5, section 28 of the Michigan Constitution provides, in part: 典here is hereby established a state transportation commission, which shall establish policy for the state transportation department transportation programs and facilities, and such other public works of the state, as provided by law. Any provision that dictates spending priorities reserved to the State Transportation Commission is therefore unconstitutional.

7. Article 8, sections 5 and 6 of the Michigan Constitution grant each board of an institution of higher education in this state 堵eneral supervision of its institution and the control and direction of all expenditures from the institution痴 funds. Any provision that deprives an institution of higher education with the supervisory control and budgetary independence provided by those sections is therefore unconstitutional.

8. Article 11, section 5 of the Michigan Constitution vests the power to 途egulate all conditions of employment in the classified service in the Civil Service Commission. Any provision that abrogates that exclusive grant of authority is therefore unconstitutional.

Thank you for your attention to these matters.

Sincerely,

Gretchen Whitmer

Governor

The bill was signed by the Governor September 29, 2021, at 10:01 a.m.

The bill was filed with the Secretary of State September 29, 2021, at 10:58 a.m. and assigned Public Act No. 86, I.E.

The question being on the passage of the disapproved items, the objections of the Governor to the contrary notwithstanding,

Rep. Frederick moved that the disapproved items be re-referred to the Committee on Appropriations.

The motion prevailed.

 

By unanimous consent the House returned to the order of

Motions and Resolutions

 

 

Reps. Frederick, Anthony, Martin, Bellino, Beson, Wakeman, Tisdel, Roth, Eisen, Outman, Thanedar, O誰eal, Hauck, Bezotte, Sneller and Steenland offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 169.

A resolution to urge the Congress of the United States to allow students in short-term training programs to apply for federal Pell grants.

Whereas, The federal Pell Grant Program provides need-based grants to low- and moderate-income undergraduate and certain postbaccalaureate students to promote access to postsecondary education. Pell grants have been helping millions of students in need across the country access postsecondary education for 45 years; and

Whereas, Pell grants are available to students enrolled in an eligible program at a participating institution of higher education, as defined by Title IV of the Higher Education Act, for the purpose of earning a certificate or degree. Eligible institutions include public and nonprofit institutions, proprietary institutions, and postsecondary vocational institutions. Eligible programs require at least 16 semester hours offered during a minimum of 15 weeks. Graduate and professional programs that run for a minimum of 8 semester hours over 10 weeks may be eligible for a Pell grant as long as the programs admit individuals who have completed the equivalent of an associate痴 degree; and

Whereas, Students in many short-term training programs under 15 weeks are currently unable to apply for a Pell grant. Certificate programs of any length enroll a large number of low-income students, and short‑term programs are particularly appealing for individuals who need to make a quick return on their investment with limited resources. The short eligibility length of these programs, therefore, disproportionately disadvantages low-income students by depriving them of a the maximum range of options for seeking postsecondary attainment; and

Whereas, Short-term training programs are extremely valuable as they prepare individuals for fields that do not require a college education and are experiencing labor shortages, such as truck driving, the skilled trades, and some entry-level care and retail occupations. Incorporating shorter duration programs which are linked to industry-recognized credentials and certifications would provide more individuals with the assistance needed to obtain employment in their desired field in keeping with the mission of the Pell Grant Program; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge the Congress of the United States to allow students in short-term training programs to apply for federal Pell grants; and be it further

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

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Education.
