Dear heavenly Father, thank You for this day and thank You for the opportunity to serve this great state and country預 country that was founded on the principles given to us in Your word. Father, give us wisdom for the task at hand. Just as King Solomon, who is characterized as the wisest person to ever live, just as he prayed, we also should pray. 敵ive Your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern Your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this Your great people? Please, Father, let us come before You in humbleness and ask that You guide our paths as we go about our day. Bless this chamber and all those who serve here.

I pray all this in the name of Your Son, Jesus. Amen.

Statements

 

 

Senators Geiss, McMorrow and Shirkey asked and were granted unanimous consent to make statements and moved that the statements be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Geiss statement is as follows:

As among the many beneficiaries of Title IX being signed into law 50 years ago today, I rise to say happy birthday to Title IX. Recognizing the importance of Title IX takes on an additional significance today預t this moment in history謡hen there are people and forces in play determined to misuse Title IX in order to do the very things that Title IX prohibits.

The goal of Title IX was not just about allowing women and girls to simply participate in sports, but to close the gender imbalance in sports, to avoid the use of federal resources to support discriminatory practices in education programs, and to provide individual citizens effective protection against those practices. Title IX gives women and girl athletes the right to equal opportunity in sports in educational institutions that receive federal funds, from elementary schools to colleges and universities. Some will seize on the words women and girls and use it to create a narrow definition of who Title IX protects, but let me read what Title IX says.

Title IX reads, and this is from HHS.gov. Title IX prohibits sex, including pregnancy, sexual orientation, and gender identity discrimination in any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. The Title IX regulation states,

 

Except as provided elsewhere in this part, no person shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any academic, extracurricular, research, occupational training, or other education program or activity operated by a recipient which receives Federal financial assistance.

 

It has specific prohibitions,

 

Except as provided in this subpart, in providing any aid, benefit, or service to a student, a recipient shall not, on the basis of sex:

(1) Treat one person differently from another in determining whether such person satisfies any requirement or condition for the provision of such aid, benefit, or service;

(2) Provide different aid, benefits, or services or provide aid, benefits, or services in a different manner;

(3) Deny any person any such aid, benefit, or service;

(4) Subject any person to separate or different rules of behavior, sanctions, or other treatment;

(5) Discriminate against any person in the application of any rules of appearance;

(6) Apply any rule concerning the domicile or residence of a student or applicant, including eligibility for in-state fees and tuition;

(7) Aid or perpetuate discrimination against any person by providing significant assistance to any agency, organization, or person which discriminates on the basis of sex in providing any aid, benefit or service to students or employees;

(8) Otherwise limit any person in the enjoyment of any right, privilege, advantage, or opportunity.

 

Title IX expands rights, not contracts them. Title IX is anti-discriminatory, not bigoted.

So on this day葉his celebration of a half-century of anti-discriminatory rights expansion謡e should celebrate with joy and with pride its existence, the doors and opportunities that it has opened not just in sports but other areas such as STEM, and we must commit ourselves to protecting Title IX and further improving it幼learing up some of those gaps that it has yet to fill耀o that it can persist for another 50 years or longer.

Happy 50th birthday, Title IX.

 

Senator McMorrow痴 statement is as follows:

I rise today in anticipation of the Supreme Court痴 decision likely coming down today or tomorrow which will decide the future of Roe v. Wade. The Supreme Court decision may punt Michigan backwards to 1931 and our long-dormant law which makes providing an abortion a felony預 felony that will send doctors, women, and girls to jail for four years, with no exception for age, rape, or incest.

While a Michigan Court of Claims judge recently ruled to bar the enforcement of the 1931 law should Roe be overturned, rightly citing the 都erious danger of irreparable harm if prevented from accessing abortion services, the Republican majority in this Senate, Mr. President, has filed a motion to intervene in this suit to force the 1931 law and its enforcement to go back into effect, and they are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer funds to force a law to take effect that will return Michigan to an archaic time when the lives of women and girls did not matter. They池e spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer funds to, in effect, force doctors and medical providers out of the state, sentencing them to jail, and to sentence women, girls, families, and anyone needing to access this medical care to death.

The argument葉hat what痴 written in statute should be for the Legislature to decide, that any changes in statute should be done here. One of our Republican counterparts in the House told Politico, 哲one of us are thinking we池e going to let this 1931 law go back into effect and people are going to start getting arrested. Instead, we are fully prepared to have those difficult conversations with our colleagues. And yet, this Senate has for years refused to take up Senator Geiss bill to repeal this horrific 1931 law and refused to take up our bills to pass the Reproductive Health Act into law. Not even a debate; there are no conversations; there have never been. And here we are with the 1931 law, all we will have left if and when Roe falls.

In fact, just yesterday another Republican House colleague introduced a new bill that would go even further and sentence medical providers to ten years in prison instead of four. The message pending from the U.S. Supreme Court耀hould it fall預nd our Republican majority colleagues couldn稚 be clearer擁f your birth control fails, you don稚 matter. If you池e raped and get pregnant, your hopes, dreams, and aspirations do not matter. You don稚 matter. If your family already has kids and you致e decided that you can稚 have any more, you don稚 matter. If you池e a married couple who tries to get pregnant and finally does and you have a healthy pregnancy until a horrific fetal diagnosis threatens that pregnancy, threatens the chance you may ever be able to conceive again without access to an abortion, you don稚 matter.

To our colleague from the 12th District who would not even be here today without access to an abortion that saved her life, you don稚 matter. You all know that I gave birth to my daughter last year. What many of you don稚 know is that shortly after giving birth, I had an IUD placed and that IUD later punctured through my uterus, a rare occurrence that can be fatal. I had to have it surgically removed and was scheduled for a laparoscopy and a D&C to have it removed. That痴 right, a D&C預n abortive procedure. One that if our medical schools no longer teach, because they are not allowed to, because they would lose funding, because their graduates will be jailed if they dare to provide medical care. One that means I might not even be here right now because a doctor wouldn稚 know how to treat me. I wouldn稚 matter. That痴 already two of your colleagues who wouldn稚 be here right now.

You argue that these debates must happen in the Legislature. Well then, let痴 have them. Take up Senator Geiss bill to repeal the 1931 law now. Take up our bills to pass the Reproductive Health Act now. We are running out of time. Do not sentence doctors and medical providers to jail. Do not force qualified professionals to leave the state. Do not sentence your own residents to die. Take action now.

 

Senator Shirkey痴 statement is as follows:

It might surprise you that I壇 like to begin with a quote from our Governor, 展hen [our] leaders speak their words matter. I値l say it again, When leaders speak their words matter. I think she痴 right, but I壇 build on that by saying that what leaders don稚 say can often be just as important as what they do say.

Mr. President, in recent days in our state there have been multiple instances of vicious vandalism and violence against Right to Life offices, the office of a pro-life elected official, and even a pregnancy center. In Jackson葉he city I知 proud to represent要andals broke windows, spray painted the threat, If abortion isn稚 safe, neither are you. In Dearborn Heights, a pregnancy center, a center that last month helped 97 mothers with diapers, formula, clothing, and even ultrasounds had every window and three doors shattered. The same threat was sprayed upon the building, If abortion isn稚 safe, neither are you.

Mr. President, for months our Governor痴 insisted she値l窯uote庸ight like hell to keep abortion legal. In fact, she used those words as recently as yesterday. Now, I致e been known to use some strong words myself on occasion and I致e never been accused of being a shrinking violet. But what our Governor isn稚 saying is as important as what she is saying. To my knowledge she hasn稚 said a single word about these disgusting acts of vandalism, threats, and violence. And the same applies to my colleagues across the aisle. For a caucus so outraged in recent weeks about their ability to speak in this chamber, they are uniformly silent about these attacks. Haven稚 we been told in recent years that silence is complicity? Yes, many times on many occasions by many members on the other side of the aisle.

Mr. President, abortion is a deeply personal and emotional issue. No one should or can deny that. Those of us entrusted to public office can either stoke the emotion and fear associated with it or we can focus on healing. I will fight like hell to do just the latter. I hope our Governor and my colleagues across the aisle do the same, and they can start by condemning these horrific acts of crimes and threats that we致e seen this week. We just heard a long list of do-nots, but I haven稚 heard any do-nots with regards to violence and vicious attacks on these precious resources for moms and dads across this state.

By unanimous consent the Senate returned to the order of

Resolutions

 

 

Senator Chang offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 156.

A resolution to commemorate June 23, 2022, as the 40th anniversary of Vincent Chin痴 death.

Whereas, Vincent Chin was born in the Guangdong province of China on May 18, 1955. In 1961, he was adopted from a Chinese orphanage by Bing Hing Chin and Lily Chin; and

Whereas, Chin痴 father earned the ability for his wife to immigrate to the United States from his service in the United States Army during World War II; and

Whereas, Chin was raised in Highland Park, Michigan along Woodward Avenue until 1971 when his family moved to Oak Park. He graduated from Oak Park High School in 1973; and

Whereas, In 1982, Chin was employed as an industrial draftsman by an automotive supplier, worked weekends as a waiter in Ferndale, and was engaged to be married; and

Whereas, On June 19, 1982 in Highland Park, while celebrating his upcoming nuptials, Chin was attacked because of his race; and

Whereas, At a time when Japanese auto companies were thriving and the American auto industry was struggling, two former autoworkers mistook Chin for being Japanese and verbally harassed him, using racially motivated language; and

Whereas, Later that day, the same two men followed Chin to a nearby fast food restaurant. They bludgeoned Chin with a baseball bat until his skull cracked open; and

Whereas, Four days later on June 23 1982, Chin died at Henry Ford Hospital at the age of 27; and

Whereas, The two killers were convicted of manslaughter, sentenced to three years of probation, and fined $3,000. Their sentences were considered by many to be an injustice, considering the severity of the crime; and

Whereas, Chin痴 attorneys brought federal charges regarding the violation of Chin痴 civil rights and successfully settled a civil case for unlawful death; and

Whereas, The hate crime and tragic killing of Vincent Chin sparked a pan-Asian American movement in Detroit. Asian Americans of all ethnic groups came together to address injustice; and

Whereas, In the wake of Chin痴 killing, American Citizens for Justice (ACJ) was founded in Michigan. ACJ organized rallies and events to advocate for equal justice for all; and

Whereas, 40 years after Chin痴 death, there are parallels between the anti-Asian sentiment that existed in the 1980s and the current, ongoing wave of anti-Asian hate incidents and discrimination due to the COVID‑19 pandemic; and

Whereas, Asian Americans and their allies mark this 40th anniversary as an important opportunity for continued advocacy for equal justice and to stand against hate and discrimination; and

Whereas, We remember Vincent Chin and the legacy of the civil rights activism that originated from his tragic death; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That the members of this legislative body commemorate June 23, 2022, as the 40th anniversary of Vincent Chin痴 death.

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 resolution was adopted.

Senators Alexander, Bayer, Geiss, Moss, Polehanki, Santana and Wojno were named co-sponsors of the resolution.

 

 

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Chang痴 statement is as follows:

Forty years ago today熔n June 23, 1982遊incent Chin died, four days after being brutally beaten with a baseball bat by two white men right here in Michigan. Vincent Chin was born in the Guangdong province of China and was adopted from a Chinese orphanage by Bing Hing Chin and Lily Chin. He was raised in Highland Park and later Oak Park. He was employed as an industrial draftsman by an automotive supplier, worked weekends as a waiter in Ferndale, and was engaged to be married.

The American auto industry was struggling through the 1980s and some pointed to Japanese automakers and, by extension, any person of Japanese or Asian ancestry to be the ones to blame. On June 19, 1982 while at his bachelor party, Chin got into a fight. Ronald Ebens and Michael Nitz said, It痴 because of you mother f-----s that we池e out of work. The two men followed Chin to the McDonald痴 down the street and bludgeoned him to death with a baseball bat until his skull cracked open. Four days later, he died at Henry Ford Hospital at the young age of 27.

The injustice of this killing did not end there. The two killers were convicted only of manslaughter, sentenced to three years of probation, and fined $3,000. They did not serve a full day in jail or prison, and the judge commented that these were not the type of men to be sent to jail. Chin痴 attorneys later brought federal charges regarding the violation of Chin痴 civil rights and successfully settled a civil case for unlawful death.

This tragic hate crime sparked a pan-Asian American movement in Detroit and across the country. Asian Americans of all ethnic groups came together with Black leaders in the city along with other allies to stand for justice. In the wake of Chin痴 killing, American Citizens for Justice輸CJ謡as founded here in Michigan. They organized rallies and events to advocate for equal justice for all. My father actually went to one of these rallies at what is now Hart Plaza.

Forty years after Chin痴 death, there are parallels between the anti-Asian sentiment that existed in the 1980s and the current ongoing wave of anti-Asian hate incidents and discrimination due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I致e been going to, and in years past helped organize, several Vincent Chin remembrance events over the past two decades, but this past weekend痴 events felt different. National leaders came to be part of the events and talk about the relevance of Chin痴 story. Helen Zia, Roland Hwang, Jim Shimoura, and others who co-founded ACJ spoke at these events and we all reflected on how critical it is that every young person learn this important part of history and other events in Asian American history. Far too many people here in Michigan have never even heard of Vincent Chin until the wave of anti-Asian hate across our country over the past two years brought it back to the forefront.

This past Sunday, I took my youngest daughter to the gravesite ceremony during which various faith leaders offered their prayers and we all laid flowers at Vincent Chin痴 grave. Kneeling in front of his grave, I told my daughter that Vincent was killed, that it was not fair, and that we must do our part to make the world better and more fair for everyone.

So this week, Asian Americans and our allies mark this 40th anniversary as an important opportunity for continued advocacy for equal justice and to stand against hate and discrimination. I ask for your support of this resolution and welcome your co-sponsorship.

 

 

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Johnson痴 statement is as follows:

I壇 like to ask my colleagues to join me in welcoming our guest in the north Gallery. We have someone who is very special to both myself and Senator Daley. I got the chance to work with her in my Secretary of State office. Kim Zasa who is here today with her 7-year-old son Oscar worked as the Secretary of State liaison and volunteer coordinator for Gift of Life Michigan.

Kim was instrumental in our work to more than double the size of Michigan痴 organ donor registry, adding over 3 million names容nough to fill Comerica Park more than 83 times預nd taking Michigan from one of the worst states in the nation to one of the best states in this country.

Kim traveled the state visiting with staff and customers in our 131 branch offices to promote the importance of organ and tissue donation for the thousands of Michigan residents who are waiting for that life-saving phone call. And in fact once Kim預long with Jennifer Helmer from my staff who is up in the Gallery with her, who also worked with me at the Department of State葉ook an unscheduled detour through Canada trying to get between our Detroit branch offices. I don稚 think our current Secretary of State does that type of international outreach anymore like Kim helped us to do.

But in all seriousness, to say that Kim went above and beyond would be a colossal understatement. Kim was so respected and loved by our staff, and put her heart into everything she did to help people in our state waiting for life-saving organ and tissue donation.

I would ask that my colleagues join me in giving a very warm welcome to this amazing lady who I am so proud to call my friend.

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Hertel痴 statement is as follows:

Senate Bill No. 1009 will designate a portion of highway I-94 in Ypsilanti Charter Township as the Nicholas A. Sada and Sergeant Davyon D. Rose Memorial Highway. This legislation honors the lives of two exemplary men in our community, and I firmly believe that one of the most basic things our government can do is honor those who died in service to us.

To Nick and Davyon痴 family watching from home today, I am so grateful to have gotten to know your boys through you. It has been a privilege to get to know your family. Both of these men were graduates of Everett High School in Lansing and were known by their community for their welcoming demeanor, sharp wits, and love for sports. Following graduation, Davyon bravely served in the United States Army. Upon returning home, Nicholas helped Davyon secure employment with C & D Hughes, Inc., a Michigan Department of Transportation road construction contractor.

It was on the evening of November 7, 2021, that Nicholas and Davyon, while working on our roads in Michigan, were struck and killed at work by a drunk driver entering a construction zone on eastbound I-94. Shortly after Nick and Davyon痴 deaths, the family took their grief and used it to do two things葉o bring about awareness for safety for construction workers on site, and to try to bring justice for their sons. We owe them and we owe their sons a debt of gratitude.

Although Nick and Davyon were taken from us nearly two years ago, the commitment and love of their family and our community should be made evident by this memorial. I want to thank Chairman Barrett for taking up these bills quickly and thank the Majority Leader for putting them on the floor today. With this legislation, we can honor these men and provide a sliver of solace to the friends and family they left behind.

Protests

 

 

Senators McBroom, LaSata and Theis, under their constitutional right of protest (Art. 4, Sec. 18), protested against the passage of Senate Bill No. 576.

Senator McBroom moved that the statement he made during the discussion of the bill be printed as his reasons for voting 渡o.

The motion prevailed.

Senator McBroom痴 statement, in which Senators LaSata and Theis concurred, is as follows:

Mr. President, I think that this is a difficult issue and there痴 a lot of passions about smoking. I知 not a smoker myself and I find the practice to be dangerous to people痴 health傭oth those who are smoking and those around them. It痴 good to see society moving away from smoking dominating it the way it did years ago. So, I can understand the passion to move the age to make it more difficult, but I think we are treading dangerously on people痴 constitutional rights, particularly on the rights of adults.

The Constitution very specifically delineates a few specific cases where age is something other than the accepted age of adult behavior. Alcohol is one of those; election to the U.S. House, the U.S. Senate, or the presidency are the others. Our laws state very specifically that 18 is when we become an adult. Even the Constitution in prescribing how old someone has to be to vote, our criminal laws, our sentencing guidelines, all of these things focus on turning 18. To arbitrarily take a legal substance and simply say that, Well, we致e decided that we can move this age for when you can make an adult decision to some other place without an exception provided from the Constitution, I think sets a bad precedent for the future庸or property ownership, ownership of other materials, consumption of other legal goods.

So therefore, I will be voting 渡o and don稚 recommend the passage of this bill.

Resolutions

 

 

Senators Irwin, Geiss, McMorrow and Chang offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 157.

A resolution to condemn the United States Supreme Court痴 decision in Egbert v. Boule and to urge the federal government to protect the people from rights abuses by Border Patrol agents by amending the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 and creating a statutory damages remedy against Border Patrol agents for violations of the United States Constitution.

Whereas, In Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, the United States Supreme Court established the right to sue federal agents for damages if, acting under color of federal law, they violate rights under the United States Constitution. The threat of accountability is an important deterrent to prevent rights violations before they happen, and the remedy of damages is needed to compensate individuals when violations of their rights cause damage to their persons or property. Without Bivens actions or causes of actions created by Congress, constitutional rights lack teeth, placing constitutional liberties in jeopardy; and

Whereas, The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States secures people痴 bodies, homes, and personal property from unreasonable searches and seizures, and it guards against the excessive use of force by law enforcement. This Amendment is meant to protect the people from the sort of abuse seen in Bivens, where an individual, rank-and-file federal law enforcement officer unlawfully entered the private property of a United States citizen within the United States without a warrant and used unconstitutional excessive force against that citizen; and

Whereas, In the 2022 case Egbert v. Boule, the Supreme Court gutted Bivens, vastly restricting a valuable tool for defending the Constitution. The Court痴 opinion defied precedent and created a new test for whether a Bivens action should be allowed, a test that could hardly ever be satisfied. This closes the door on cases, like Egbert itself, that are nearly identical to the facts of Bivens and fall squarely within its initial, core concern: Fourth Amendment search and seizure. While it does not overrule Bivens, the Court has left only a husk, with no real power to defend the Constitution and the rights of the people; and

Whereas, Even if some Bivens actions could survive Egbert, this case fully immunized Border Patrol agents from suits seeking damages for violations of the Constitution committed in the course of their duties. The Court held that the threat of litigation against Border Patrol agents would interfere with the regulation of the conduct of agents at the border, which has national security implications. As a result, the Court found that it must be left to Congress to decide how to encourage Border Patrol agents to comply with the Constitution; and

Whereas, Under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, Border Patrol agents can exercise many powers without a warrant. Border Patrol agents generally have the power to interrogate aliens and make arrests for certain violations of law, and they have extra powers within a 途easonable distance of the external boundaries of the United States. Federal regulations establish this 途easonable distance as 100 air miles from the land boundaries and territorial sea of the United States. Within this 100-mile zone, Border Patrol agents can conduct warrantless searches of certain vehicles for aliens. Additionally, within 25 miles of the external boundaries, they can access private lands, though not dwellings, for the purpose of patrolling the border to prevent the illegal entry of aliens into the United States without a warrant. Warrantless entry onto farms for the purpose of interrogating a person believed to be an alien about their right to be in the United States is also prohibited. But even in these warrantless operations, Border Patrol agents remain subject to the Constitution and can violate constitutional rights; and

Whereas, Michigan痴 proximity to the United States border gives Border Patrol agents more power to operate without a warrant inside this state. According to documents obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan, U.S. Customs and Border Protection claims that the entire state of Michigan falls within the 100-mile zone for warrantless vehicle searches, because the Great Lakes count as international waterways. This increases the number of potential interactions between Michigan residents and Border Patrol agents, which creates more opportunities for violations of constitutional rights rights that, under Egbert, cannot be vindicated with damages actions. As a result, the constitutional rights of Michigan residents are uniquely threatened by the Egbert decision; and

Whereas, The Supreme Court was incorrect to grant Border Patrol agents blanket immunity from Bivens actions. Rank-and-file Border Patrol agents perform commonplace law enforcement activities, such as interrogations and arrests, including arrests for felonies unrelated to immigration. These activities are materially indistinguishable from the facts of Bivens and do not always implicate national security. Individuals whose rights are violated by Border Patrol agents should have the right to seek Bivens actions in their individual cases; and

Whereas, Unless the Supreme Court reverses its decision in Egbert or a damages remedy is created under federal statute, the people are left powerless to enforce their constitutional rights using damages actions against Border Patrol agents, and possibly against any federal employees. Eviscerating this vital mechanism of deterrence threatens the rights of all under the Constitution, and especially the rights of the people of Michigan; and

Whereas, Congress should exercise its legislative power to create a statutory cause of action for damages caused by a Border Patrol agent痴 violation of the United States Constitution. The Court in Egbert held that Congress is the more competent branch to authorize a damages remedy against Border Patrol agents. Congress should wield this expertise to calibrate a remedy that will adequately deter violations of the Constitution and make victims whole while simultaneously safeguarding our national security; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we condemn the United States Supreme Court痴 decision in Egbert v. Boule for practically eliminating Bivens actions and immunizing United States Border Patrol agents from this powerful tool to defend the United States Constitution and provide meaningful redress to those whose rights are violated; and be it further

Resolved, That we urge the United States Congress to pass and the President of the United States to sign an amendment to the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 to define the 途easonable distance from the external boundaries of the United States as 10 air miles, to enshrine our Fourth Amendment rights against excessive and intrusive warrantless searches and seizures; and be it further

Resolved, That we urge the United States Congress to pass and the President of the United States to sign a law creating a statutory damages remedy against Border Patrol agents for violations of rights protected by the United States Constitution, to replace the Bivens actions barred by Egbert; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Supreme Court of the United States, the President of the United States, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, the President of the United States Senate, 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 Judiciary and Public Safety.

The motion prevailed.

Senators Bayer and Santana were named co-sponsors of the resolution.

 

 

Senators Brinks and McCann offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 158.

A resolution to commemorate July 2022 as Michigan Beer Month.

Whereas, Michigan breweries are a vibrant affirmation and expression of our entrepreneurial traditions, operating as community-based small businesses and providing more than 13,000 full-time jobs; and

Whereas, Michigan has breweries in every region with more than 400 breweries statewide; and

Whereas, Our state ranks sixth in the nation for overall number of breweries, microbreweries, and brewpubs; and

Whereas, The Michigan Brewers Guild celebrates locally made beer by hosting its Summer Beer Festival every July, one of five annual events held around the state; and

Whereas, The Michigan Brewers Guild represents a passionate beer community that believes in quality artisanship, bold character, fun, responsibility, and pushing the boundaries, while also promoting and protecting the Michigan beer industry with an overarching goal to help locally brewed beer attain 20 percent of all beer sales in the state by 2025; and

Whereas, This year, the Michigan Brewers Guild celebrates its 25th anniversary as a nonprofit trade association with its breweries and the beer community; and

Whereas, Brewers in Michigan support our state痴 agriculture by purchasing hops, malted barley, wheat, beet sugar, cherries, apples, and numerous other fruits, herbs, spices, and vegetables grown here, along with water sourced from the Great Lakes; and

Whereas, Michigan brewers promote a spirit of independence through a renaissance in locally produced beers, like those first brought to the state by European settlers and created by our forefathers, including Bernhard Stroh, for the enjoyment of the citizenry; and

Whereas, Striving to educate legal drinking-age residents, Michigan brewers convey awareness about the differences in beer flavor, aroma, color, alcohol content, body, and other complex variables, beer history, and gastronomic qualities of beer; and

Whereas, Michigan brewers champion the message of responsible enjoyment to their customers and work within their communities to prevent alcohol abuse and underage drinking; and

Whereas, Breweries in Michigan produce dozens of distinct styles of flavorful beers, the quality and diversity of which have made Michigan the envy of many, while also contributing to the balanced trade of increased Michigan exports and the promotion of our state痴 tourism; and

Whereas, The Michigan brewing industry has had great growth and success, contributing more than $513 million in labor income with a total economic contribution of more than $1.8 billion, thriving and expanding to further their economic importance to the state; and

Whereas, Michigan brewers are vested in the future, health, and welfare of their communities as employers provide a diverse array of quality, local jobs. Brewers are also contributors to the local tax base and are committed partners for a broad range of local, regional, and state nonprofit organizations and other philanthropic causes; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That the members of this legislative body commemorate July 2022 as Michigan Beer Month and recognize the contributions that Michigan brewers have made to our state痴 communities, economy, and history; and be it further

Resolved, That we commend Michigan breweries for providing jobs, improving the balance of trade, supporting our state痴 agriculture, and educating residents about the history and culture of beer, while encouraging the responsible consumption of beer as a beverage of moderation.

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 Moss offered the following amendment:

1. Amend page 3, line 12, after 田auses by inserting . Though not every citizen in Michigan agrees with the lifestyle of consuming alcohol, it is agreed that every beverage is special, precious, unique and loved by its creator, and each beer is created in a brewer痴 image..

The amendment was adopted.

The resolution as amended was adopted.

Senators Bayer, Chang, Geiss, Huizenga, Santana and Wojno were named co-sponsors of the resolution.

 

 

Senators Moss and Brinks asked and were granted unanimous consent to make statements and moved that the statements be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Moss statement is as follows:

You know, I知 offering an amendment to this Beer Month resolution which I think is more reflective of the diversity of the opinions of the Senate. I知 adding a Whereas欄Though not every citizen in Michigan agrees with the lifestyle of consuming alcohol, it is agreed that every beverage is special, precious, unique and loved by its creator, and each beer is created in a brewer痴 image.

I assume that this amendment will be adopted but now that we have new rules imposed by the majority, if it痴 not adopted I hope it is sent to committee as we routinely do with dozens of other resolutions.

 

Senator Brinks statement is as follows:

We have before us a resolution to recognize July 2022 as Beer Month in the state of Michigan. Whether you are a fan of ales or lagers, stouts or porters, if you prefer an IPA or even a Dunkel, there痴 probably a brewery in your district that will serve you one. In fact, the Great Lakes State has breweries in every region and more than 400 breweries statewide. Michigan is home to Brewery Vivant痴 Sgt. Peppercorn Rye, Bell痴 Oberon, Founders All Day IPA, Short痴 Soft Parade, and a long list of other impressive brews. More than 100 distinct styles and flavorful beers are made here, making us the envy of many other states. This comes as no surprise considering Michigan breweries have thrived and continue to be part of our communities and our culture, contributing more than $513 million in labor income with a total economic contribution of more than $1.8 billion. They池e committed sponsors of a broad range of vital community institutions and philanthropic causes, including not-for-profit housing development associations, chambers of commerce, humane societies, athletic teams, medical research, and more.

I知 proud to represent the countless breweries in Senate District 29, home of Beer City, U.S.A., in Grand Rapids, and I am also very proud to sponsor this resolution that declares July 2022 as Beer Month in the state of Michigan. While there are many things we will no doubt continue to disagree on, in my experience, beer is bipartisan.

So, please join me in acknowledging Michigan brewers and the important role they play in our state痴 communities, economy, and history. Cheers to everyone, and thank you, Mr. President.

 

 

Senator Barrett offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 159.

A resolution to commemorate June 27, 2022, as Post-Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI) Awareness Day.

Whereas, The brave men and women of the United States (U.S.) Armed Forces risk their lives to protect the freedom of the United States and deserve the investment of every possible resource to ensure their lasting physical, mental, and emotional well-being; and

Whereas, More than 2,000,000 U.S. service members have deployed as part of overseas contingency operations since the events of September 11, 2001; and

Whereas, The military has sustained an operational tempo for a period of time unprecedented in the history of the U.S., with many service members deploying multiple times to combat zones, placing them at high risk of PTSI; and

Whereas, It is expected that 10,000 veterans will return to Michigan every year for the next three to five years after spending a significant amount of time in combat environments, exposing thousands of soldiers to traumatic life threatening events; and

Whereas, In fiscal year 2012, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs reported that more than 500,000 veterans from all wars who sought care at a Department of Veterans Affairs medical center received treatment for PTSI; and

Whereas, PTSI significantly increases the risk of depression, suicide, and drug or alcohol-related disorders and deaths; and

Whereas, Thousands of Michigan corrections professionals who perform a critical and dangerous job protecting the public suffer health detriments due to high stress and potentially traumatic occupational experiences. Recent studies have shown that nearly 33.7 percent of surveyed corrections officers are estimated to be PTSI positive in this state; and

Whereas, The U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs have made significant advances in the causes, symptoms, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of PTSI. However, many challenges remain; and

Whereas, The establishment of a Post-Traumatic Stress Injury Awareness Day in Michigan raises public awareness about issues related to PTSI; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That the members of this legislative body commemorate June 27, 2022, as Post-Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI) Awareness Day; and be it further

Resolved, That we urge the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency and the Adjutant General to continue working to educate service members, veterans, the families of service members and veterans, and the public about the causes, symptoms, and treatment of PTSI; and be it further

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be transmitted to the Governor of the state of Michigan.

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 resolution was adopted.

Senators Chang, Geiss, Santana, Theis and Wojno were named co-sponsors of the resolution.

 

 

Senator Victory offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 160.

A resolution to recognize June 23, 2022, as 迭osen Rye Day.

Whereas, Michigan痴 food and agriculture system is a major contributor to income and employment in the state痴 economy, accounting for over $100 billion in direct, indirect, and induced economic activity and over 800,000 jobs; and

Whereas, Since its admission to the union in 1837, Michigan has been an important producer of cereal grains including wheat, corn, and rye. In 1909, a new rye varietal was brought to Michigan Agricultural College (MAC) from Russia by Joseph Rosen and subsequently cleaned, selected, and propagated by Professor Frank Spragg; and

Whereas, It was determined conclusively that Rosen Rye vastly outperformed common varietals and that its cultivation become a priority for Michigan痴 agricultural community; and

Whereas, Beginning in 1917, significant exports of 鼎ertified Rosen Rye seeded around the world, and notably to major whiskey producing regions of the United States. By 1920, Michigan was the nation痴 largest producer of rye; and

Whereas, It became apparent that, despite universal acclaim, Rosen Rye crops diminished in quality from year to year due to cross-pollination from contact with common rye. A decisive action needed to be taken to isolate the finest seed-stock and protect the innovations and investment of Michigan痴 agricultural community. In turn, a survey was formed to determine suitable, isolated areas and South Manitou Island was found to be ideal; and

Whereas, George and Louis Hutzler, along with Irvin Beck, led all seven farms on South Manitou Island and formed a mutual pact, swearing under penalty of drowning, to grow only Rosen Rye to protect its genetic purity. Over the following decade, they earned numerous international awards for 鼎ertified Rosen Rye, garnering the farmers the moniker 迭ye Kings and Manitou Island as the 展orld痴 Rye Center; and

Whereas, Between the dawn of Prohibition, and the 1960s when the last farmers left South Manitou Island, Michigan Rosen Rye was venerated in whiskey advertisements, extolled in internal distillery production manuals, and raised to legendary status in bootlegging folklore, before completely disappearing from the market for 50 years; and

Whereas, Under permit from the National Park Service, using seeds from the United States Department of Agriculture Seed Bank, along with assistance from Michigan State University痴 Department of Bio Ag Research and volunteer descendants of the Hutzler and Beck families, Mammoth Distilling has revived these historic farms to reintroduce 鼎ertified Rosen Rye; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That the members of this legislative body recognize June 23, 2022, as 迭osen Rye Day; and be it further

Resolved, That we recognize the critical role of native grains and locally grown agriculture to the success of the craft spirits industry in Michigan.

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 resolution was adopted.

Senators Bayer, Huizenga, Santana and Wojno were named co-sponsors of the resolution.

 

 

Senator Lauwers moved that the Senate proceed to consideration of the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 151

The motion prevailed.

 

 

Senate Resolution No. 151.

A resolution to urge the United States Department of Interior to approve the petition of the Grand River Bands of Ottawa Indians for federal acknowledgement.

(The Committee on Government Operations was discharged from further consideration of this resolution earlier today. See p. 971.)

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Huizenga痴 statement is as follows:

Thank you, Mr. President, for the opportunity to speak regarding Senate Resolution No. 151. This resolution expresses the Michigan Senate痴 bipartisan request that the United States Department of the Interior should approve the Grand River Bands of Ottawa Indians petition for federal recognition. The time has come for the federal government to officially recognize the Grand River Bands as a distinct and sovereign people.

The Grand River Bands of Ottawa Indians pre-exist the arrival of settlers in the area that now constitutes my Senate district. Their ancestral homelands north of the Grand River stretch beyond my district into West Michigan at large. They have a rich history in our community, firmly based on the activities, traditions, and circumstances apparent amongst the Anishinaabe people of the Great Lakes. All this has been affirmed by the sovereign-to-sovereign treaties with the United States such as the 1795 Treaty of Greenville, the 1855 Treaty of Detroit, among others.

Despite evidence that the Grand River Bands meet the seven required criteria for federal acknowledgement, the 500 to 600 members of the Grand River Bands remain unrecognized by the federal government. Since their original submission to the U.S. Office of Federal Acknowledgement in 1994 and their subsequent addition to the active consideration list in 2013, they have been told time and time again that their case is pending review. This active review withholds a wide variety of benefits for the Grand River Bands citizens such as their rights to housing, health care, and education assistance, all of which are provided exclusively for federally-recognized tribes.

This stagnation has gone on for long enough. It has been almost three decades since their original application was submitted, earning them the title of the longest active review of any petitioner in United States history. The Grand River Bands of Ottawa Indians play an active role in the social and economic fabric of West Michigan and they are our constituents and valued partners in creating the future for our state. We must not let an erroneously delayed government process to continue to impede them from being able to thrive.

I would ask that my colleagues join me in support Senate Resolution No. 151.

 

By unanimous consent the Senate proceeded to the order of
