Motions and Resolutions

 

 

Reps. Hornberger, Bollin and Sneller offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 215.

A resolution to declare January 23-29, 2022, as School Choice Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, All children in Michigan should have the right to the highest-quality schools possible; and

Whereas, Citizens across Michigan agree that improving the quality of education and expanding access to highly-effective schools should be issues of importance to our state痴 leaders; and

Whereas, Michigan recognizes the critical role that an effective and accountable system of education plays in preparing all children to be successful in a global economy; and

Whereas, There are a multitude of high-quality public schools, public charter schools, and nonpublic schools in the state of Michigan; and

Whereas, Michigan has many outstanding teaching professionals in public, private, and charter schools across the state who are committed to educating children; and

Whereas, The vital cause of education reform is one that transcends ideology and political party affiliation; and

Whereas, Research in Michigan and across the nation demonstrates conclusively that providing parents with multiple schooling options improves academic performance; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare January 23-29, 2022, as School Choice Week in the state of Michigan. We call this observance to the attention of all our citizens; and be it further

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be transmitted to the National School Choice Week organization with our highest esteem.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Reps. Cynthia Johnson, Brabec, Thanedar, Stone, Tyrone Carter, Peterson, Garza, Steckloff, Kuppa, Cavanagh, Ellison and Weiss offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 216.

A resolution to urge school districts in Michigan to provide information to parents about safe gun storage.

Whereas, Every year in the United States, approximately 18,000 children and teens are killed or wounded by firearms. Gun violence remains the second leading cause of death for children in the U.S., and fatal firearm injuries for children and teens have steadily risen since 2013; and

Whereas, The accessibility of firearms to children and teens contributes to the rise in gun violence. It is estimated that about 5.4 million children live in a home with at least one unlocked and loaded firearm. Easy access to firearms can result in tragic consequences, including accidental injuries and mass school shootings; and

Whereas, It is vital that parents who own guns ensure that they are stored safely. Research has shown that appropriately locking up firearms could reduce child and teen firearm deaths by up to a third. In addition, a study estimated that securely locked-up guns would have prevented between 235 and 323 shootings of children and teens in the U.S. in 2015; and

Whereas, In response to a growing concern that parents are not responsibly storing their firearms, school districts across the country are encouraging safe practices by including notices and information regarding safe gun storage in registration forms and other materials provided for parents. School districts in Michigan should follow suit and implement this low-cost but potentially life-saving strategy; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge school districts in Michigan to provide information to parents about safe gun storage; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the executive director of the Michigan Association of School Boards.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Education.

 

 

Reps. Brixie, Rogers, Steckloff, Garza, Steenland, Coleman, Neeley, Cynthia Johnson, Sneller, Anthony, Bolden, Sowerby, Camilleri, Brabec, Puri, Manoogian, Pohutsky, Young, Cavanagh, Weiss, Aiyash, Ellison, Hope, Thanedar, Hood, Kuppa, Stone, Brenda Carter, Lasinski, Breen, Peterson, Jones, Clemente, O誰eal, Yancey and Rabhi offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 217.

A resolution to recognize the 49th anniversary of the issuance of the U.S. Supreme Court痴 Roe v. Wade ruling.

Whereas, The House of Representatives recognizes the anniversary of the United States Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, decided on January 22, 1973. This ruling affirmed that the Constitution of the United States safeguards the right to make personal medical decisions and that government should not intrude; and

Whereas, Reproductive freedom is vital to health, economic security, and the ability to participate equally in society; and

Whereas, Comprehensive reproductive health care, including safe abortion, is a vital component of overall health; and

Whereas, Like other medical procedures, the safety of abortion is furthered by evidence-based practices developed and supported by medical professionals; and

Whereas, Any regulation of medical care should be grounded in scientific evidence and improve health outcomes; and

Whereas, In the landmark decision Whole Woman痴 Health v. Hellerstedt, the United States Supreme Court recently reaffirmed the constitutional right to access safe, legal abortion, confirming nearly 50 years of precedent; and

Whereas, One in three people will need an abortion in their lifetime. As such, safe, legal, and accessible abortion is an essential component of comprehensive reproductive health care; and

Whereas, Everyone should have access to comprehensive health care in the state of Michigan. The right to access safe, legal abortion is a right in name only for many citizens. State imposed restrictions keep abortion out of reach for many, particularly those who have been systemically and historically marginalized, such as Black and Brown communities and those with low incomes; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body recognize the 49th anniversary of the issuance of the U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade ruling. We denounce violence towards abortion providers and their patients; and be it further

Resolved, That we oppose efforts to undermine the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision by further eliminating access to abortion in Michigan and throughout the country; and be it further

Resolved, That the House of Representatives affirms that all people have the right to access reproductive health care services without fear of violence, intimidation, or harassment and no matter their color or income; and be it further

Resolved, That we affirm the right to access health care without interference in this state, including safe and legal abortion.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Health Policy.

The Committee on Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation, by Rep. Howell, Chair, reported

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 7.

A concurrent resolution to urge the Natural Resources Commission to authorize, and the Department of Natural Resources to organize, wolf hunting and trapping as part of the state痴 wolf management efforts beginning in 2021.

(For text of resolution, see House Journal No. 21 of 2021, p. 290.)

With the recommendation that the following substitute (H-1) be adopted and that the concurrent resolution then be adopted.

Substitute for Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 7.

A concurrent resolution to urge the Wolf Management Advisory Council and the Natural Resources Commission to authorize, and the Department of Natural Resources to organize, wolf hunting and trapping as part of the state痴 wolf management efforts beginning in 2022.

Whereas, Gray wolves in Michigan have been protected under the federal Endangered Species Act since 1974. At that time, gray wolves were in danger of going extinct and needed the special protection provided by the act to aid their recovery; and

Whereas, The federal government removed the gray wolf from the federal Endangered Species list effective January 4, 2021. Gray wolves have made a remarkable recovery from near extinction. Michigan痴 current gray wolf population of almost 700 wolves exceeds by over three times the number of wolves biologists consider necessary to maintain a healthy population in the state. Michigan痴 wolf population has met all federal recovery goals for delisting both in terms of number of wolves and the stability of those numbers for many years; and

Whereas, The state of Michigan is now responsible for managing its gray wolf population, and Department of Natural Resources officials stated as recently as the summer of 2020 that their survey results show that Michigan痴 wolf population has recovered. Wolves in Michigan achieved the minimum sustainable population goal of 200 wolves for five consecutive years in 2004 and have since surpassed state and federal population recovery goals for nearly 20 years; and

Whereas, Managed hunting and trapping in the state is a viable means of ensuring stable wolf population numbers. Management allows the wolf population to be kept at levels that ensure the overall survival of the animal but limit potential wolf and human conflicts; and

Whereas, Michigan has an active and legitimate wolf management plan in place that was updated in 2015. While we commend the department for beginning the process of updating this plan again and commend the Natural Resources Commission for setting a plan update deadline of the end of 2021, there is no statutory requirement or precedent to delay a 2022 wolf hunt while the plan is reviewed and updated. Neither is there a requirement for a statewide public attitude survey or study to occur prior to a hunting season; and

Whereas, The law is clear that the commission should, to the greatest extent practicable, utilize principles of sound scientific management in making decisions regarding the taking of game; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That we urge the Wolf Management Advisory Council and the Natural Resources Commission to authorize, and the Department of Natural Resources to organize, wolf hunting and trapping as part of the state痴 wolf management efforts beginning in 2022; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the members of the Natural Resources Commission and the Wolf Management Advisory Council and the Director of the Department of Natural Resources.
