Resolutions

 

 

Senator Huizenga offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 137.

A resolution to recognize May 2022 as Michigan Fitness Month.

Whereas, Fitness has significant health benefits for hearts, bodies, and minds. These benefits can include, but are not limited to, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, healthy weight management, and reduced risk of depression and anxiety; and

Whereas, The International Physical Literacy Association (IPLA) reports that physical literacy, known as the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge, and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life, is critical for child development; and

Whereas, Adults under 65 years of age should engage in 150-300 minutes of moderate cardio activity each week, in addition to two strength-related workouts, according to the United States Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) physical activity guidelines for Americans. However, fewer than half of Americans meet both recommendations, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); and

Whereas, The percentage of Michigan adults who met the federal physical activity guidelines from 2015-2019 never exceeded 25 percent, according to a CDC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System study; and

Whereas, Michigan is home to over 1,000 health clubs that service over 2.5 million residents. The fitness industry helps combat a 33 percent adult obesity rate and lowers healthcare costs, 83 percent of which are spent on chronic diseases; and

Whereas, Health clubs are a key economic asset to the state of Michigan, bringing in more than $776 million in revenue and employing over 46,000 residents; and

Whereas, The Michigan Fitness Club Association (MFCA) is a statewide membership organization dedicated to educating, promoting fitness and wellness, and connecting exercise centers with our healthcare delivery system. MFCA also brings together organizations such as Planet Fitness, Burn Fitness, Orangetheory Fitness, and more to empower fitness professionals and improve health outcomes in our state; and

Whereas, In the month of May, health clubs and volunteers will come together throughout Michigan to raise awareness about the importance of fitness to achieve their mission of delivering health and wellness to the public; now, therefore, be it

Statements

 

 

Senator Polehanki asked and was granted unanimous consent to make a statement and moved that the statement be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Polehanki痴 statement is as follows:

It looks like the United States Supreme Court is going to make abortion a crime in the coming months. Last week, Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito wrote a leaked but formal opinion that women who seek abortions for any reason at all should be considered criminals. Criminals for seeking an abortion. Criminals for wanting control of their own bodies. If you池e like me, you致e seen comparisons of Alito痴 opinion to the witch hunts of hundreds of years ago when fanatical but powerful men executed tens of thousands of women for being women. Some of you may think, Well things are much more civilized now; we are not burning witches, turn down the hysteria Senator. My response would be to ask you to take a look at Alito痴 opinion in which he draws heavily from an Englishman named Sir Matthew Hale who in the 1600s described abortion as a 堵reat crime. Never mind that Hale secured the executions of two women as witches himself and he wrote the definitive text for a marital rape exemption because 澱y marriage, the wife hath given herself up. This is Alito痴 guy.

Alito cites another argument to ban abortion and that is that a 電omestic supply of infantsto be adopted has become virtually nonexistent. He痴 talking about American women as infant suppliers for adoption要essels. You know, I was a high school English teacher and I truly believe that many of my students could have written more sound arguments than Alito. Nevertheless it looks like it痴 a forgone conclusion that abortion in the United States will be made a crime in the near future. So what does that mean for Michigan women? Does Michigan have a state law that would supersede this upcoming federal law?

The answer is no, in fact it痴 just the opposite. Michigan has a 1931 law on the books that would take immediate effect. So when Roe falls overnight, nearly all abortions would become a felony carrying a penalty of up to four years in prison, even in the case of rape and incest or medical emergencies. So Michigan doctors and providers are going to jail if they help a woman obtain an abortion. And the 1931 law is unclear about women who take abortion medications on their own.

When this happens謡hen this happens柚ichigan痴 Attorney General Dana Nessel described the chilling effect that this would have on women痴 healthcare. What doctor, she says, is going to want to risk prison and perform a D&C for women who have uterine problems? Or to clear the uterine lining after a miscarriage because a D&C is the same procedure that a doctor might do for an abortion. Nessel says this chilling effect will affect basic medical healthcare required for women to not have extreme health problems or even die. The Attorney General says she is going to refuse to enforce this draconian law, but she can稚 prevent any of Michigan痴 83 county prosecutors from pursuing criminal charges against those involved in abortion.

So we have a decision to make. Will we stand by and let politicians like us in this room conduct a modern day witch hunt on women who wish to make decisions about our reproductive rights? Or will the core democratic values of liberty and equality prevail? You know, that痴 up to us Michiganders and who we elect to make our laws. It is time to fight, and the fight is now.

 

Senator Victory moved that the remarks he made during the recess earlier today be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Victory痴 first statement is as follows:

Today we have the honor of recognizing Hope College women痴 national様et me repeat that溶ational basketball champions. The Hope College women痴 basketball team has laid claim to three national championships. Two of the three have been won under the leadership of coach Brian Morehouse. Known for their team unity and for bringing positivity to all levels of competition預nd I am going to go a little off-script here預nd when I say a real positive attitude, there was a retirement home, Freedom Village, and they had their own special fanbase of seniors that love attending their games. That was something special to see and even our local media brought that to our attention.

The Hope College women痴 basketball team has won 77 out of 78 games over the past three years. These victories culminated with a final against Wisconsin-Whitewater for the national championship. What distinguishes the best is the dedication and effort that appears in practice, far removed from the excitement of the game day. Through their hard work and commitment this team and the coaching staff have embodied the qualities that enable success, not only on the court but also in life. This group of disciplined student athletes has generated great pride throughout the state of Michigan and especially in the Holland community.

It is with sincere respect and admiration that we congratulate the Hope College women痴 basketball team on winning the 2022 NCAA Division III Women痴 Basketball National Championship. Please join me in welcoming them to the State Senate.

 

Senator Victory痴 second statement is as follows:

Today, I am honored to welcome the ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the United States, Andr Haspels and his wife, Mrs. Bernie Haspels, to the chamber. Ambassador Haspels has served as ambassador since 2019, working to strengthen the ties between our two countries.

This week, he is spending time in Michigan with his economic advisors from the Dutch Embassy in Washington, as well as dozens of business leaders who have traveled here from the Netherlands to join the economic mission. They are learning more about Michigan痴 strong agricultural and auto manufacturing sectors, and have spent time in Holland and Grand Rapids, and after leaving Lansing this morning they are heading to Ann Arbor and Detroit.

Interestingly Ambassador Haspels father was a flower trader who imported flowers from all over the world, including the United States悠 even learned yesterday, ferns from Florida. Since he was a young boy, Haspels has always seen flowers, and that痴 how he learned about agriculture and the trade. This is a real honor to have the ambassador here today. Please help me to welcome Ambassador Haspels and Mrs. Haspels to the State Capitol.
