Pastor Matt Zainea of Blythefield Hills Baptist Church of Rockford offered the following invocation:

Father, as these men and women prepare for a day of political activity we want to pause a moment to thank You for Your goodness and greatness. In Your goodness we see the glory of creation in the world around us, from the cosmos to the familiar landscapes of this state to the communities in which we live. We see Your goodness especially in the inherent dignity and value of every person no matter their place and current condition.

We see something of You in the world around us but it is in our own humanity that we sense Your divine hand on our lives. Through our humanity we are able to create, build, govern and embark upon endeavors collectively that gives rise to our spirits. Help us today to do this in a ways so that we enter into Your joy. In Your greatness we see a father who cares for the brokenness of His children. And as we soil ourselves with deceit, violence, debauchery and oppression, You seek to bind up the broken hearted and set free all entrapped by the chords of injustice and sin. You stop at nothing to offer us a way back. Even the giving of Yourself is not too great a price for You to pay for our restoration.

I ask You now to aid these good men and women as they seek to govern well under the umbrella of Your goodness and greatness. We are all tempted to favoritism, selfishness and power. We buy into shortcuts and popular superstitions that lead us down a slow steady path to ruin. In place of these tendencies instill in this group a drive toward virtue, honesty, and a deeply considered sense of justice that is anchored not in political rhetoric but in a sense of human dignity and Your perfect character.

In Jesus name. Amen.

 

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

Resolutions

 

 

Senators MacDonald, Bizon, Lucido, Barrett, Outman, Bullock, Wojno, Alexander, Chang, McMorrow, Moss, McBroom, Irwin, Lauwers, Runestad and Horn offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 89.

A resolution to support the Michigan National Guard in its efforts to have Detroit selected as the host city for the National Guard Association of the United States 2024 national conference.

Whereas, The National Guard Association of the United States national conference brings 54 national guard associations from across the nation together to discuss national-level issues affecting the state national guards. Soldiers and airmen are educated on key national security issues and have an opportunity for professional development; and

Whereas, Participants in the National Guard Association of the United States conference include more than 5,000 Army and Air National Guard officers from all 50 states, three territories, and the District of Columbia. Department of Defense leadership, national political leaders, and senior National Guard commanders will also be present; and

Whereas, The Michigan National Guard is bidding to have Detroit serve as the host city of the 2024 conference. An estimated $3.5 to $4.5 million dollars of direct economic impact is expected to be realized by the city and region for hosting the national conference. In addition, every state national guard association hosts individual receptions requiring restaurant and hotel accommodations at multiple sites across the city and region; and

Whereas, Detroit, and Michigan as a whole, is a logical location for the National Guard Association of the United States national conference. As in World War II, when Michigan痴 automotive industry converted to manufacturing tanks and other military vehicles, Michigan continues to advance military readiness as the center of the military-industrial complex. Selecting Detroit as the host of the 2024 conference will bring together the National Guard soldiers and airmen with the modern technology and manufacturing support that is so critical to today痴 armed forces; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we support the selection of Detroit for the National Guard Association of the United States 2024 national conference; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the National Guard Association of Michigan and the National Guard Association of the United States.

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 Families, Seniors, and Veterans.

The motion prevailed

Senator Moss offered the following concurrent resolution:

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 15.

A concurrent resolution to urge the Michigan State Capitol Commission to allow a menorah to be placed on the Capitol grounds for the duration of the holiday season.

Whereas, The Michigan State Capitol Historic Site is under the exclusive control of the Michigan State Capitol Commission, pursuant to Public Act 240 of 2013; and

Whereas, The Michigan State Capitol Commission allows the state Christmas tree to be placed on the Capitol grounds for the duration of the holiday season. The tree selected for 2019 stands more than 60 feet tall and is displayed continuously for more than two months; and

Whereas, The Michigan State Capitol Commission has rules and policies that limit the placement of other religious and seasonal displays during the holiday season. These rules and policies limit the size of other displays and the duration for which they can be displayed. For instance, menorah displays have historically been limited in size and must be taken down each night, which are limitations that are not placed on the Christmas tree display; and

Whereas, Menorahs are important religious and cultural symbols that have a place at the Capitol during the holiday season. Placing restrictions on menorah displays diminishes the ability of the people of this state to enjoy and celebrate meaningfully in public spaces; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That we urge the Michigan State Capitol Commission to allow a menorah to be placed on the Capitol grounds for the duration of the holiday season; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the members of the Michigan State Capitol Commission.

Pursuant to rule 3.204, the concurrent resolution was referred to the Committee on Government Operations.

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