Rev. Deborah Dean-Ware, Pastor of Church of the Good Shepherd in Ann Arbor, offered the following invocation:

 

徹 Creator of us all, Divine Mother, Heavenly Father, we gather today in the spirit of gratitude for the gift of life and the gift of democracy. Thank You for Your spirit that is moving in and around and through all of us this day and every day.

As this legislative body moves into its business, I ask that You instill into all who are present today the biblical principles of love and compassion, hospitality and justice. Help us to remember the dozens of passages in both the Hebrew bible and Christian testament that command us to welcome the immigrant, to care for the orphan and the widow, to fight religious and political corruption. Help us to remember the more than 900 verses that command us to take care of the poor. Help us to remember that every word in our Bible was written under some form of cruel oppression葉hat our ancestors of faith wrote about love and care despite living under the bonds of slavery, of brutal foreign occupation, of tragic exile from their homeland and sacred spaces. Help us to remember that Jesus, a mentor and friend to millions around the world, had a special and deep love for those who had been cast to the margins of society. Help us to remember that He sought out those who society had deemed unclean, unworthy of Your love. Help us to remember that He broke religious and civic laws designed to dehumanize Your precious children. Help us to remember that He embodied Your vision for the world when He proclaimed in Luke 4:

18禅he Spirit of the Lord is upon me,

because the Lord has anointed me.

He has sent me to preach good news to the poor,

to proclaim release to the prisoners

and recovery of sight to the blind,

to liberate the oppressed,

19 and to proclaim the year of the Lord痴 favor.

Gracious and loving God, help us reclaim the Bible from those who have sought to weaponize it as a way to garner and retain political and social power, as a way to reinforce oppression on those already suffering from systemic and religious inequity. Help us to speak kind words, reinforced by our compassionate actions, to those battered by religious authorities who willfully turn scripture into texts of terror. Help us to confess to You and to one another that we have too often been silent in the face of injustice, in the face of fear, in the face of the destruction of this beautiful planet You have given us to care for. Forgive us for our complicity, for our reluctance, for our quest for power, for our unwillingness to sacrifice for the common good.

Most of all, Living and Loving God, help us all be beacons of Your light and love. Help us to remember that You love us and every person born at any time in history, anywhere on this planet, with a love that will not let us go. In Your name we pray, Amen.

Michigan Trail Riders Association created and maintains this trail through volunteer efforts and it is protected as a 渡ational treasure; and

Whereas, Michigan equestrian trails offer fox hunts for sport leading to an exciting and educational experience for horses, dogs, and riders. Battle Creek Hunt in Augusta, Metamora Hunt in Metamora, and Waterloo Hunt in Grass Lake make up the three foxhunting clubs in Michigan. Hunts take members over many miles of trails consisting of open meadows, beautiful wooded trails, creek and river crossings, and natural and man-made obstacles. Hunter paces offered by the clubs provide an opportunity for the public to get a taste for the sport while providing a unique training opportunity for their mounts; and

Whereas, Michigan communities are alive and well with equine therapy on Michigan trails. Many facilities like the Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center in Augusta Michigan, Equest Center for Therapeutic Riding, Inc. in Grand Rapids and the Beekman Center in Lansing utilize trails in their lesson programs. Detroit Horse Power includes trail riding in their community outreach program of bringing Detroit youth to interact with horses in a variety of settings. Trail rides provide healthy therapy for individuals with special needs dealing with emotional, mental, physical, psychological, and substance abuse issues. The facilities integrate academic, social, and physical skills using the horse as a catalyst, improving the quality of life, achieving dreams, reaching their highest potential, teaching confidence, leadership, and care for creatures and others; and

Whereas, Michigan equestrian trails have received national attention by the television show 釘est of America by Horseback taking place on Mackinac Island where 塗orses are king and the island is 鍍he one and only place in our whole country that operates solely with horse power! according to the March/April issue of 2019 Cowgirl Magazine; and

Whereas, Michigan equestrian trails are celebrated with numerous riding facilities which allow the non-horse owning public to enjoy the trails via horseback, including Wolf Lake Ranch where guests enjoy over 6,500 acres of hills, valleys, and secluded forest in the Manistee National Forest. Visitors from this guest ranch declare this area as the 澱est riding ever!; and

Whereas, Michigan equestrian trails are developed and maintained by many trail associations throughout the state consisting of volunteers working in partnership with state, federal, county, and metropark authorities. These associations have passionately served and volunteered well over $600,000 in hours and effort over the past two years alone. The trail associations advocate tirelessly to bring awareness to the needs of the trail riders in Michigan. Their volunteer hours and donated dollars go toward the creation of trails, maintenance of trails, designing and improving campgrounds and staging areas, construction of campground corrals, fundraising events, building skills courses, and more, for the enjoyment of all; and

Whereas, Michigan equestrian trails are natural resources producing economic value, education, employment, empowerment, emotional, mental, physical, psychological, substance abuse therapy, historical reflections, show, sport, tourism, transportation, and travel; now, therefore, be it

Messages from the Governor

 

 

The following line items veto message from the Governor was received and read:

 

Executive Office, Lansing, September 30, 2019

Michigan House of Representatives

State Capitol

Lansing, MI 48909-7514

 

Representatives,

I have signed Enrolled House Bill 4229, which makes appropriations for the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2020. I have, however, disapproved four items pursuant to article 5, section 19 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963. The specific item vetoes are detailed in the attached copy of the bill that has been filed with the secretary of state.

To provide direction regarding the implementation of this appropriations act, I note the following:

  Section 215 violates article 4, section 24 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963, as well as the separation of powers required by article 3, section 2, among other provisions of the Michigan Constitution of 1963, and is therefore unenforceable.

  Those provisions of this bill that express merely the intent, advice, preferences, or wishes of the legislaュture do not impose conditions upon appropriations and are non-binding.

Thank you for your attention to these matters.

Sincerely,

Gretchen Whitmer

Governor

The bill was signed by the Governor September 29, 2019, at 3:28 p.m.

The bill was filed with the Secretary of State September 30, 2019, at 7:36 p.m. and assigned Public Act No. 65, I.E.

The question being on the passage of the disapproved items, the objections of the Governor to the contrary notwithstanding,

Rep. Cole moved that consideration of the disapproved line items be postponed for the day.

The motion prevailed.

Representatives,

I have signed Enrolled House Bill 4231, which makes appropriations for the Department of Corrections for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2020. I have, however, disapproved eight items pursuant to article 5, section 19 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963. The specific item vetoes are detailed in the attached copy of the bill that has been filed with the secretary of state.

To provide direction regarding the implementation of this appropriations act, I note the following:

  I have disapproved section 226, which purports to repurpose funds previously appropriated to work projects that have not ended or been lapsed as required by section 451a of the Management and Budget Act. Because I have disapproved that section using the line-item veto power, the funds in question must remain in their existing work project accounts. I also note that this section violates article 4, section 25 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963.

  Section 206 and subsection (1) of section 419 violate the separation of powers required by article 3, section 2, amount other provisions of the Michigan Constitution of 1963. I note in particular that, although the legislature may require periodic reports from executive departments, the weekly frequency of the reporting required by section 419 crosses the line from general oversight to direct supervision, and is therefore unenforceable.

  Sections 225 and 248 violate article 4, section 25 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963, and are therefore unenforceable.

  Finally, those provisions of this bill that express merely the intent, advice, preferences, or wishes of the legislature do not impose conditions upon appropriations and are non-binding.

Thank you for your attention to these matters.

Sincerely,

Gretchen Whitmer

Representatives,

I have signed Enrolled House Bill 4232, which makes appropriations for the Department of Education for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2020. I have, however, disapproved one item pursuant to article 5, section 19 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963. The item veto is detailed in the attached copy of the bill that has been filed with the secretary of state.

To provide direction regarding the implementation of this appropriations act, I note the following:

  Section 222 violates article 4, section 24 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963, and is therefore unenforceable.

  Section 236, 237, and 238, which purport to place 75% of the total appropriations to the Department of Education into 殿dministrative reserve funds under the control of the legislature, amount to an attempt to condition the department痴 expenditure of appropriated funds on further legislative approval. They therefore violate the separation of powers required by article 3, section 2, among other provisions of the Michigan Constitution 1963, and are unenforceable

  Finally, those provisions of this bill that express merely the intent, advice, preferences, or wishes of the legislature do not impose conditions upon appropriations and are non-binding.

Explanation of 哲o Votes

 

 

Rep. Kennedy, having reserved the right to explain her nay vote pertaining to House Bill No. 4242, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

I voted in opposition of HB4242 to place on the record that simply increasing funding with one-time fixes to one group of students, though helpful is far from enough. Michigan currently underfunds schools by $2,300 per pupil. Special education is underfunded by $700 million dollars. We can not continue to accept 5% increases in one category and a small per pupil increase and pretend it is an improvement. In fact, it does not keep up with inflation or legacy costs, so it moves us farther behind. Certainly these increases are better than nothing, but our students are not 創othing. They are our future.
