e/d/s = entered during session

Rep. Thomas A. Albert, from the 86th District, offered the following invocation:

 

的n the name of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to Thy protection, implored Thy help, or sought Thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto Thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to Thee do I come, before Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in Thy mercy hear and answer me.

PATER NOSTER, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum. Adveniat regnum tuum. Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris. Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.

Messages from the Governor

 

 

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

 

Executive Office, Lansing, November 5, 2021

Michigan House of Representatives

State Capitol Building

Lansing, MI 48909-7514

 

Representatives,

I am deeply committed to putting Michigan students and parents first and am proud of what we have achieved for Michigan children. Together, we have improved opportunities and outcomes for more than 1.4 million kids across Michigan by:

腹 expanding the Great Start Readiness Program to serve more than 17,000 additional four year-olds;

腹 making more than 105,000 more Michigan children eligible for low- or no-cost child care; and,

腹 making the largest educational investment in our state痴 history three years in a row tripling the number of literacy coaches, hiring more counselors, providing MI Classroom Heroes grants to 138,000 teachers, and finally closing the nearly three decades-long funding gap.

And we did it all without raising taxes one dime.

Proponents say House Bills 5404 and 5405 promote philanthropy, but any Michigander can already donate money to an educational nonprofit and receive a write-off on their taxes. This legislation would require Michigan taxpayers to foot the bill for any money a person gives to certain private education organizations, costing as much as $500 million in 2022 alone. Simply put, our schools cannot provide the high-quality education our kids deserve if we turn private schools into tax shelters for the wealthy.

The movement to privatize education in this state has been a catastrophic failure, causing Michigan students to fall behind the rest of the nation. As a result of this movement, Michigan now has by far the largest proportion of for-profit charters in the country yet was one of only five states where reading attainment actually declined between 2003 and 2018. Redirecting public school dollars for private gain is not only ineffective, it has been roundly rejected by Michigan voters, with more than 69% voting 渡o on a proposal that would have allowed the use of tuition vouchers for nonpublic schools. Since I was elected governor, I have consistently put students and parents first and we have begun to reverse decades of disinvestment in public education. I am vetoing Enrolled House Bills 5404 and 5405 because they would undo much of that good work.

Nevertheless, I would be proud to support common sense bills that help all families access high-quality education and child care, including legislation:

腹 fixing the third-grade reading law to eliminate punitive retention requirements;

腹 giving child care providers more flexibility so that they can serve more children; and,

腹 preventing disruption in student learning by allowing students to move seamlessly between in-person instruction and virtual school.

I am willing to work with anyone who shares these goals to get things done for Michigan students and parents.

Sincerely,

Gretchen Whitmer

Governor

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

Rep. Calley moved that the bill be re-referred to the Committee on Education.

The motion prevailed.

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

 

Executive Office, Lansing, November 5, 2021

Michigan House of Representatives

State Capitol Building

Lansing, MI 48909-7514

 

Representatives,

Today, I am returning Enrolled House Bill 4066 without my approval. This legislation would have prohibited local governments from enacting or enforcing any knife law stricter than state law.

Crime is local. In my view, citizens of Michigan痴 cities and towns not Lansing politicians should be able to make their own public safety decisions. HB 4066 would deprive them of that power. I am therefore vetoing this legislation.

As a former prosecutor, public safety is a top priority for me. I want Michiganders to feel safe, whether going to and from work, dropping their kids off at school, or running errands. That is why I have put forward a $75 million plan called MI Safe Communities, informed by hundreds of conversations my team and I had with law enforcement officers, community leaders, faith leaders, and families over several months.

MI Safe Communities would use federal funds that we already have to invest more money into Michigan痴 police departments to strengthen training policies and programs, tackle the backlog of criminal cases that have piled up during the pandemic, and make investments to tackle the root causes of crime by expanding opportunity and bolstering violence intervention programs.

We all want to reduce crime and ensure families feel safe. I know we can work together to protect public safety, and I look forward making the investments we need to support law enforcement, decrease violence, and deliver justice.

Sincerely,

Gretchen Whitmer

Governor
