Resolutions

 

 

Senator Bizon offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 53.

A resolution to urge President Joe Biden to support the Keystone XL Pipeline, reverse his decision to cancel the permit, and to support American jobs and energy cooperation with our Canadian neighbors.

Whereas, In order to continue fueling our economy, the United States will need more oil and natural gas. Despite efforts to increase the use of renewable energy, the United States is still many years away from ending its dependence on nonrenewable resources; and

Whereas, While working towards cleaner energy standards and pursuing ways to use energy more efficiently is laudable, blindly rejecting the critical role of the oil and gas industry in fueling America痴 economy will not only result in skyrocketing energy prices, but will also cripple job growth. Those most impacted by increased prices to heat their homes, fill their gas tanks, and keep the lights on are those least able to afford it; and

Whereas, The Premier of Alberta Province in Canada, upon hearing that President Joe Biden will revoke the Keystone XL Pipeline, has urged the Prime Minister of Canada to reach out to the Biden administration to reverse course. Unfortunately, instead of going forward with a project that will benefit countless communities and individuals on both sides of the border, President Joe Biden has decided to hinder American-Canadian energy cooperation as one of his first actions as president; and

Whereas, The United States and Canada are each other痴 largest energy trading partners. Canada has significant oil reserves and is a responsible partner in regulating the oil and gas industry. Projects such as the Keystone XL Pipeline, when combined with other oil and gas projects in both Canada and the United States, promote North American energy independence and job creation. The United States should be looking for ways to increase and improve our relationship with Canada, not diminish it; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we urge President Joe Biden to support the Keystone XL Pipeline, reverse his decision to cancel the permit, and to support American jobs and energy cooperation with our Canadian neighbors; and be it further

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

Pending the order that, under rule 3.204, the resolution be referred to the Committee on Government Operations,

Senator Lauwers moved that the rule be suspended.

The motion prevailed, a majority of the members serving voting therefor.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

Senator Lauwers moved that the resolution be referred to the Committee on Energy and Technology.

The motion prevailed.

 

By unanimous consent the Senate returned to the order of

Senator Barrett痴 statement is as follows:

I appreciate the opportunity to speak briefly about Senate Joint Resolution G. This is a resolution to amend our State Constitution to protect communication between employees of our state and members here in this legislative body. This is an important reform to really protect that confidential disclosure of information between those that carry out the business of our state and those that assist in governing our state, which are the members here in this body and across the rotunda in the other chamber. I will just point out that it痴 important to note we had run this as a policy bill last year and I know there was some concern by members that folks could present knowingly false testimony to a legislator and still be protected by this ability to disclose that confidential information. The amendment before us today specifically says that an employee is not protected if they make a knowingly false statement in his or her communication. So we致e added that protection. We致e also carved out the top level political appointees of the Governor as well as the partisan staff here in the Legislature, so if they disclose confidential, strategic information, that would not be protected. This is really intended to protect our civil service employees who have the nuts and bolts understanding of how the operations of the departments are going and what we can do to improve that. Lastly, I just want to thank the Senator from the 11th District and the Senator from the 2nd District for assisting with this effort and co-sponsoring this resolution with me and helping to get this over the finish line.

Statements

 

 

Senators MacDonald, Runestad and Hollier asked and were granted unanimous consent to make statements and moved that the statements be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator MacDonald痴 statement is as follows:

I rise today to welcome my esteemed guest, Willie DeChavez, out of Sterling Heights. Willie is not only a great friend, but he痴 been a tireless fighter for the Asian American community and Willie, it痴 an honor to have you here in the Senate.

 

Senator Runestad痴 statement is as follows:

Colleagues, I rise to speak of my pleasure at the passage of House Bill No. 4728. We just voted here in this chamber to put our children first, our local schools back in control, and give our graduates the option to go out on a high note.

I asked you to join me in supporting these students by giving them this chance for a safe ceremony that they will remember for the rest of their lives. In March I introduced legislation that would give local school districts the freedom to organize their own high school graduation ceremonies. I didn稚 introduce this legislation alone. I worked with superintendents, administrators, parents, high school seniors, and across the party lines. What I introduced and what House Bill No. 4728 does today is trust the schools to conduct a safe, responsible graduation ceremony if they so choose. Schools have shown that they can operate safely and securely. They致e shown that right judgement, no matter how much the changing or conflicting rules they had to face. Now we ought to trust them with their graduations.

Two weeks ago I stood in this chamber and outlined how things were looking up. More and more folks were getting vaccinated, COVID numbers were dropping, and the outlook on graduation ceremonies looked better and better. Now over 8 million vaccinations have been administered, over 56 percent of eligible adults have gotten both shots. Bridge Michigan reported that COVID hospitalizations dropped below 2,000, for the first time since March it痴 been that low. And yet, the rules on graduation ceremonies remain confusing. The Governor seems to acknowledge that the improvement in numbers has occurred recently. She said you don稚 have to wear a mask anymore if you池e fully vaccinated. That痴 great news. So why shouldn稚 our schools be able to have safe graduations? Why are we will stuck with another one-size-fits-all approach to our high schools? Why are college graduations different than high school rules? And why wouldn稚 we want parents and administrators making decisions for their families and their students instead of Lansing?

The fact of the matter is that this legislation is indeed late. It takes time to plan graduation ceremonies. But while it may be late, it痴 not too late. Our schools can still safely pull off memorable graduations that our seniors and parents will remember forever. They can do this as long as we do the right thing, and it痴 not too late for the Governor to also do the right thing herself and give these graduates this one last wonderful memory. I want to thank my colleagues in the House and now here in the Senate Chamber for standing up for graduates and for working with me and the House sponsor to get this passed. So if a high school district can hold a safe graduation while still operating safely, they should be able to do that. Let痴 give those seniors and their families this one last option as they leave for the ending of this difficult year.

Senator Hollier痴 statement is as follows:

You may have missed me over the past 27 days. I was away attending military training預ttending the Civil Affairs Captains Career Course. It was 27 days nonstop of 12-hour days on Microsoft Teams which, for all of you who have not had the pleasure of having young children at home also doing virtual learning, it痴 terrible容xtremely terrible. But, I made it through and in a surprise turn of fate I ended up No. 1 in my class, being the distinguished military graduate which has never happened before but something I知 exceedingly proud of. I wanted to say thank you to all the staff members who helped keep me in the loop so that I could continue to represent my constituents and be a part of some of those budget things. I壇 also like to say a special thank you to Chairman Stamas for allowing all of those budget subcommittees to be done in one day, on a day when I was able to make it away from class. I really appreciate the accommodation.

During that time, I did miss a number of votes. I am reading them because our rules require me to read all the numbers, not because I thought it would be fun.

Again, it痴 really nice to be back. It痴 nice to see you all. It痴 nice to be able to get back to doing the work of the people who represent us. I知 excited about the potential for us to get a number of the things done that are critically important to the people who represent us, and I am optimistic that again being able to see each other and operate in a space where we can look each other in the eyes and start to get back to work, will allow us to do the things that we need to get done.
