(For text of resolution, see House Journal No. 87, p. 1970.)

(The resolution was reported by the Committee on Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation on October 28, with substitute (H-1).)

(For substitute, see House Journal No. 90, p. 2019.)

Substitute for House Resolution No. 186.

A resolution to call on the state of Michigan to quickly address the lead service lines that have contaminated drinking water sources in the city of Hamtramck.

Whereas, A reliable system that delivers safe, quality drinking water is crucial to a community痴 vitality and its residents health and well-being; and

Whereas, Exposure to lead can cause serious harm to the health of children and adults. Children are especially vulnerable to lead poisoning and can experience damage to the brain and nervous system, slowed growth and development, and other significant harm to their health, including long-term impacts; and

Whereas, The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency痴 90th percentile value lead action level in drinking water is 15 parts per billion (ppb); and

Whereas, An October 15, 2021, letter from the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy to Hamtramck about lead and copper monitoring indicates that the community water supply痴 90th percentile value exceeded the 15 ppb lead action level during testing from June 1 to September 30, 2021. The 90th percentile value for lead was 17 ppb, with sample results reaching as high as 36 ppb. Among the sources of the lead contamination, the letter notes that the city痴 service lines may contain lead; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we call on the state of Michigan to quickly address the lead service lines that have contaminated drinking water sources in the city of Hamtramck; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Governor and the Director of the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy.

The motion prevailed and the substitute (H-3) was adopted, a majority of the members serving voting therefor.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

House Resolution No. 188.

A resolution to declare November 2021 as Stomach Cancer Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Stomach cancer, also known as gastric cancer, is one of the most difficult cancers to detect in the early stages of the disease, which contributes to high mortality rates; and

Whereas, Stomach cancer occurs when cancer cells develop in the lining of the stomach; and

Whereas, Stomach cancer is the sixth most common type of cancer worldwide; and

Whereas, In 2021, an estimated 26,520 cases of stomach cancer will be diagnosed in the United States and over 11,000 people in the country will die from the disease; and

Whereas, The estimated 5-year survival rate for stomach cancer is only 31 percent; and

Whereas, Approximately 1 in 96 men and 1 in 152 women will be diagnosed with stomach cancer during his or her lifetime; and

Whereas, In the United States, stomach cancer is more prevalent among racial and ethnic minorities; and

Whereas, Increased awareness of and education about stomach cancer among patients and healthcare providers could improve timely recognition of stomach cancer symptoms; and

Whereas, More research into early diagnosis, screening, and treatment for stomach cancer is needed; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare November 2021 as Stomach Cancer Awareness Month in the state of Michigan. We support the goals of awareness of, and education about, the condition among the general public of Michigan and recognize the need for additional research into early diagnosis, screening, and treatment for stomach cancer.

Messages from the Governor

 

 

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

 

Executive Office, Lansing, October 29, 2021

Michigan House of Representatives

State Capitol Building

Lansing, MI 48909-7514

 

Representatives,

Today I am returning Enrolled House Bill 5007 to you without approval.

Every citizen of Michigan has the constitutionally guaranteed right to vote and deserves to exercise that right in safe and secure elections.

HB 5007 is tie-barred to enrolled Senate Bills 303 and 304 bills that would eliminate the option for Michigan voters to submit an affidavit, signed under penalty of perjury, attesting to their identity and eligibility when attempting to vote without a photo ID. To be clear, there is no evidence that use of affidavit ballots is related to voter fraud. In fact, the Michigan Senate Oversight Committee recently concluded that the 2020 election produced no significant evidence of fraud. Yet this voting restriction would disenfranchise the more than 18,000 voters who relied on the affidavit ballot in recent elections.

SB 303 and 304 would disproportionately harm communities of color. After the 2016 election, a random sample of affidavit ballots revealed that about 0.5% of voters lacked access to ID on election day, yet nearly all of those affidavit ballot voters actually possessed state-issued identification. Non-white voters were about five times more likely to lack access to ID on election day than white voters. Voting restrictions that produce such a racially disparate impact must never become law in this state.

Nevertheless, I would be proud to sign common sense election reforms that would strengthen our democracy, including bills:

     improving military families access to the ballot by allowing active-duty Michiganders and spouses serving overseas to vote electronically,

     removing barriers to voting absentee by establishing a permanent absent voter list, and,

     expediting election returns by allowing sufficient time for preprocessing of absentee ballots.

As the late John Lewis said: 擢reedom is not a state; it is an act. Freedom is the continuous action we all must take, and each generation must do its part to create an even more fair, more just society.

Sincerely,

Gretchen Whitmer

Governor

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

Rep. Frederick moved that the bill be re-referred to the Committee on Government Operations.

The motion prevailed.

 

By unanimous consent the House returned to the order of
