Senator Jeremy Moss of the 11th District offered the following invocation:

Aloheinu v弾luhei avoteinu v弾moteinu, our God and God of our ancestors: with mercy, accept our prayer on behalf of our state and our country. Pour out Your blessings upon this land, upon its government, its leaders and advisors, and all who exercise just and rightful authority devoted in good faith to the needs of the public. Instruct them with the laws of Your Torah and help them to understand Your rules of justice so that peace and security, happiness and prosperity, justice and freedom may forever abide in our midst.

We pray, Adonai, God, whose spirit is in all creatures, awaken that spirit with all the inhabitants of our land. Uproot from their hearts malice, jealousy, and strife. Banish hatred and bigotry. Safeguard the ideals and free institutions that are the pride and glory of our democracy. Plant among those of different nationalities and faiths who comprise our country with love and friendship so that all races and creeds form a common bond in true harmony. May this land under Your providence be an influence for good throughout the world, fulfilling the vision of Your prophets.

哲ation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they experience war any more. And let us say: Amen.

 

The President pro tempore, Senator Nesbitt, led the members of the Senate in recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Senate Resolution No. 70.

A resolution to recognize September 7, 2019, as Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Appreciation Day.

Whereas, The Great Lakes system including Lake Erie, Lake Huron, Lake Ontario, Lake Michigan, Lake Superior, and the St. Lawrence River is a globally significant resource and ecosystem, holding 21 percent of the world痴 surface freshwater; and

Whereas, The Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River provides drinking water to more than 48 million Americans and Canadians and supplies 56 billion gallons of water per day for municipal, agricultural, and industrial use; and

Whereas, On September 7, 2012, by signing a revised Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, the United States and Canada reaffirmed their commitment to binational cooperation 鍍o restore, protect, and enhance the water quality of the Great Lakes to promote the ecological health of the Great Lakes basin.; and

Whereas, An abundant supply of clean and affordable water is essential to support a healthy population, a thriving economy, and a well-functioning ecosystem; and

Whereas, As the major source of water for communities located within the Great Lakes basin, the Great Lakes system is a vital resource in which all the region痴 residents share a common interest; and

Whereas, The Great Lakes are an economic powerhouse for the region, supporting industries such as shipping, agriculture, technology, manufacturing, recreation, and tourism; and

Whereas, The waters and shoreline of the Great Lakes provide exceptional habitat for thousands of species of native mammals, birds, amphibians, fish, and plants; and

Whereas, The Great Lakes basin is home to numerous beaches, parks, forests, harbors, marinas, piers, lighthouses, boardwalks, and islands that provide recreational opportunities for swimming, hiking, surfing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, hunting, photography, wildlife watching, and more; and

Whereas, The Great Lakes are Michigan痴 most valuable natural resource and are fundamental to the state痴 identity and quality of life. The Great Lakes also have extraordinary economic value for Michigan, providing jobs for more than 800,000 Michigan residents; a world‐renown commercial and sport fishery with an annual value of more than $4 billion; the foundation for a $12.8 billion travel industry; water resources for manuュfacturing industries, which produce 60 percent of our nation痴 steel and 60 percent of our automobiles; a maritime transportation network; and harbors and marinas that support a $2 billion annual recreational boating industry; and

Whereas, The region痴 environment, economy, and people rely on the clean, healthy waters of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That the members of this legislative body recognize September 7, 2019, as Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Appreciation Day; and be it further

Resolved, That we encourage all citizens to learn about the importance of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River to the economy and the environment of Michigan.

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

Senator MacGregor moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The resolution was adopted.

Senators Ananich, Barrett, Bizon, Bullock, Chang, Hertel, Hollier, Johnson, Lauwers, Lucido, Runestad, Santana, Wojno and Zorn were named co-sponsors of the resolution.

 

 

Senators Schmidt and Daley offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 71.

A resolution to support the U.S. cherry industry痴 petition before the U.S. International Trade Commission stating unfair trade practices against Turkey and to urge the Commission and the U.S. Department of Commerce to take action protecting U.S. cherry farmers.

Whereas, Michigan is the primary tart cherry producing state, growing 189 million pounds in 2017, or nearly 75% of the nation痴 crop. Tart cherry production in the United States totaled 259.5 million pounds in 2017, valued at $56.8 million; and

Whereas, Turkish imports have caused tart cherry prices to crash, significantly damaging Michigan痴 industry. The amount of dried cherries imported from Turkey have grown exponentially over the last three years, more than tripling from 2016 to 2018. Subsidized by the Turkish government, Turkish cherries sell for 89 cents per pound while the U.S. product sells for an average of $4.60 per pound; and

Whereas, On April 23, 2019, the Dried Tart Cherry Trade Committee filed petitions with the U.S. International Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Commerce, claiming that Turkey is flooding the U.S. market with dried tart cherries, lowering domestic product prices and causing material injury to tart cherry producers in Michigan and other cherry growing states; and

Whereas, In June, the U.S. International Trade Commission issued a preliminary ruling that Turkish imports 塗ad a significant adverse impact on the domestic industry. A final ruling is expected early next year. If Turkish imports are determined to be injurious to the U.S. market, the Department of Commerce will determine the duties to be imposed; and

Whereas, If the industry loses its case, few cherry growers will survive. Already trees are being destroyed as it costs more to harvest fruit than the current return on the product. Jobs will be lost both in seasonal workers in the field and the thousands of employees in processing plants who work year-round preparing cherries for market; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we support the U.S. cherry industry痴 petition before the U.S. International Trade Commission stating unfair trade practices against Turkey and urge the Commission and the U.S. Department of Commerce to take action protecting U.S. cherry farmers; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the members of the U.S. International Trade Commission, the United States Secretary of Commerce, 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 MacGregor 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 MacGregor moved that the resolution be referred to the Committee on Agriculture.

The motion prevailed

Senators Ananich, Barrett, Bayer, Bullock, Chang, Hertel, Hollier, Horn, Lauwers, Lucido, Polehanki, Santana, VanderWall, Wojno and Zorn were named co-sponsors of the resolution.

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 10.

A concurrent resolution to support the U.S. cherry industry痴 petition before the U.S. International Trade Commission stating unfair trade practices against Turkey and to urge the Commission and the U.S. Department of Commerce to take action protecting U.S. cherry farmers.

Whereas, Michigan is the primary tart cherry producing state, growing 189 million pounds in 2017, or nearly 75% of the nation痴 crop. Tart cherry production in the United States totaled 259.5 million pounds in 2017, valued at $56.8 million; and

Statements

 

 

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator McCann痴 statement is as follows:

You may be aware why flags are at half-staff today at the Capitol. My district and our great state of Michigan has lost an honorable and model public servant recently. Today, back in Kalamazoo, we say a final farewell to Don Gilmer.

Don was first a Kalamazoo County Commissioner from 1972 to 1976. Then he was elected to serve in the chamber across the rotunda as a State Representative and served there for 22 years. Representative Gilmer also later served as Michigan Lottery Commissioner, State Budget Director, and Kalamazoo County Administrator.

He passed away too soon, recently, on August 12 at the age of 73. Don selflessly gave himself to our community and Michigan in a great many ways. He was a respected leader, and throughout his entire career treated every person with dignity and respect. Don sacrificed and served in order to create a better Michigan for all.

Let our thoughts and sympathies be with his wife, Lynn, his family and loved ones as they mourn his passing today.

 

A moment of silence was observed in memory of Donald H. Gilmer, former member of the House of Representatives.
