I would like to take this moment to ask my colleagues to join me for a moment and say goodbye to a very special person. This staff member has been an integral part of the Senate Session Staff since 2013熔ur very own Danielle McCann, Journal Clerk for the Secretary of the Senate. Danielle is moving on. She痴 not retiring耀he痴 not ready to retire yet耀he痴 moving on and has accepted a position in the Governor痴 Appointments office. Wait a minute. So, you池e going to the Governor痴 Office? Did I approve this? Actually, it痴 too late; she痴 already working there.

Danielle has been a special part of the Session Staff since 2013, dedicating many long hours妖ays and nights洋aking sure that we have proper documentation of all the historical stuff we do here in the Senate which is really, really important. Not only has Danielle completed her work with dedication but she has been a great leader in tackling some of the most challenging problems in that department. Her input, guidance, and yes, even her stubbornness has been a great asset to the Secretary of the Senate痴 office and her staff.

Prior to joining us, Danielle worked as a legislative assistant in the House of Representatives. She started as an intern, and through her hard work, dedication, and stubbornness, moved into a full-time position where she has honed her skills and love of the political process.

The hours outside of here at the Capitol are spent with her husband, Trevor, and their delightfully entertaining daughter, Morgan. They spend time visiting northern Michigan, taking day trips to the beach, and making the very best of everything they do as a family.

While we will miss Danielle very much, we take comfort in knowing that she will not be too far, and the state of Michigan will continue to benefit from her hard work. Danielle, we thank you very much.

A resolution to encourage the Natural Resources Commission to add Sandhill cranes to the game species list and seek U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service approval to establish a Sandhill crane hunting season.

Whereas, Michigan is home to an ever-increasing population of Sandhill cranes. The 2016 Michigan Breeding Waterfowl Survey estimates 48,900 spring breeding Sandhill cranes; and

Whereas, Sandhill cranes are already hunted in Minnesota, Tennessee, and Kentucky when they migrate beyond Michigan痴 borders. They are classified as a game species under the federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1916; and

Whereas, Hunting seasons are strictly regulated by the Mississippi Flyway Council and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to ensure that the Sandhill crane population remains robust. Under the Eastern Population Crane Management Plan, states may only receive approval for a hunting season after submitting pertinent information to the Mississippi Flyway Council, including an estimate of the peak number of Sandhill cranes and time of migration over a five-year period, proposed number of permits to be issued, and proposed season dates. States with hunting seasons are required to gather information from hunters and track the Sandhill crane population; and

Whereas, A hunting season will benefit hunters and the growing Sandhill crane population; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we encourage the Natural Resources Commission to add Sandhill cranes to the game species list and seek U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service approval to establish a Sandhill crane hunting season; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the members of the Michigan Natural Resources Commission, the Director of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, and the Governor 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 question being on the adoption of the resolution,

Senator MacGregor moved that the resolution be referred to the Committee on Natural Resources.

The motion prevailed

Senators Bullock, Daley, LaSata, McBroom, Nesbitt and VanderWall were named co-sponsors of the resolution.
