Motions and Resolutions

 

 

Reps. Greig, Manoogian, Guerra, Clemente, Hoadley, Rabhi, Bolden, Koleszar, Sowerby, Camilleri, Hood, Pagan, Sabo, Brixie, Pohutsky, Ellison, Yancey, Witwer, Lasinski, Warren, Cynthia Johnson, Coleman, Wittenberg, Chirkun, Garza, Kennedy, Kuppa, Love and Sowerby offered the following resolution:

House Resolution 155.

A resolution to declare September 13-22, 2019, as Welcoming Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The state of Michigan is proud to partner with Welcoming America and Welcoming Michigan; and

Whereas, Welcoming America and Welcoming Michigan aim to build cooperation, respect, and compassion among all in our community, immigrants and non-immigrants alike; and

Whereas, Michigan has long been recognized as a hospitable and welcoming place, where people, families, and institutions thrive, and the contributions of all are celebrated and valued; and

Whereas, Residents of Michigan demonstrate our highest American values of acceptance and equality and treat newcomers with decency and respect, creating a vibrant community for all to live in the Great Lakes State; and

Whereas, Michigan remains resolute in its commitment to continue fostering a neighborly and welcoming atmosphere in our community, where all are welcome, accepted, and appreciated; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare September 13-22, 2019, as Welcoming Week in the state of Michigan. We urge residents and elected officials of our state to do their part and join with the initiative and affirm Michigan as a welcoming state that respects the innate dignity of all people.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Reps. Neeley, Garza, Coleman, Haadsma, Whitsett, Witwer, Sowerby, Shannon, Rabhi, Cynthia Johnson, Tate, Gay-Dagnogo, Ellison, Camilleri, Pohutsky, Warren, Sabo, Brixie, Kuppa, Hoadley, Love, Hope, Peterson, Cherry, Greig, Koleszar, Lasinski, Pagan, Clemente, Wittenberg and Manoogian offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 156.

A resolution to memorialize the President and Congress of the United States to increase federal investment in drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure.

Whereas, A staggering $179 billion is needed over the next 20 years to fund improvements, upgrades, and repairs to water infrastructure in the Great Lakes Region. For Michigan alone, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that water suppliers will need over $13 billion through 2034 for building and maintaining infrastructure; and

Whereas, State and local governments make significant financial investments in water infrastructure, but they cannot fund the needed improvements alone; and

Whereas, The federal government痴 contribution to water infrastructure has declined from 63 percent to 9 percent of capital spending since 1977, systematically underfunding public water infrastructure. Federal financing of state water infrastructure is vital to protect U.S. waters so they are fishable and swimmable and to ensure that all residents have access to clean, safe, and affordable drinking water. Crucial funding for water infrastructure is provided through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund, Drinking Water State Revolving Fund, Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act, and Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act. These programs require continued support and significant funding increases to meet state needs; and

Whereas, Water infrastructure costs are passed on to those who can least afford it with water utility bills doubling and tripling in many cities over the last decade. Outdated and dangerous infrastructure, such as lead service lines, poses a significant public health risk, particularly for infants and children. These challenges are only expected to worsen as climate change pushes existing infrastructure to its limits; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we memorialize the President and Congress of the United States to address the Great Lakes region痴 need for $179 billion in investments for drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure; and be it further

Resolved, That we urge the President and Congress to triple federal investment in the Clean Water State Revolving Fund and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund and continue to support and fund the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act and Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation.

 

 

Reps. Tate, Garza, Coleman, Haadsma, Witwer, Whitsett, Sowerby, Shannon, Rabhi, Cynthia Johnson, Gay-Dagnogo, Ellison, Camilleri, Pohutsky, Warren, Sabo, Brixie, Kuppa, Hoadley, Love, Hope, Peterson, Cherry, Greig, Koleszar, VanSingel, Lasinski, Pagan, Brann, Clemente, Wittenberg, Manoogian, Chirkun and Kennedy offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 157.

A resolution to memorialize the President and Congress of the United States to increase funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to $475 million per year.

Whereas, The Great Lakes are a critical resource for our nation and central to the economy, heritage, and quality of life of Michigan and the other seven states within the Great Lakes region. The Great Lakes hold over 84 percent of the United States surface freshwater and drive a thriving regional economy, directly supporting 1.5 million U.S. jobs and generating $62 billion in wages. More than 30 million U.S. residents depend on the Great Lakes for drinking water; and

Whereas, The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) has provided crucial funding to support long overdue work to protect and restore the Great Lakes. In partnership with the states, local governments, and other organizations, the federal government has invested more than $3 billion and supported over 4,700 projects over the last decade, including around $600 million for more than 1,100 projects in Michigan; and

Whereas, The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative represents a sound investment in both the environment and the economies of the Great Lakes region. A 2018 study calculated that for every federal dollar invested in Great Lakes restoration there is $3.35 in additional economic activity, with older industrial cities like Detroit seeing an even higher return on investment; and

Whereas, Real progress has been made in cleaning up and restoring the Great Lakes thanks to the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. One-third of the region痴 toxic hot spots have been cleaned up, sparking redevelopment and business opportunities on waterfronts. Area farms and conservation organizations have increased conservation practices, which have reduced harmful nutrient runoff, and habitat and wildlife connectivity continue to improve, with nearly 5,000 miles of rivers cleared of dams and other barriers; and

Whereas, Far more work needs to be done to ensure every person has a clean community in which to live, safe beaches to enjoy, and healthy fish to eat. Substantial limitations and threats to the use of the Great Lakes remain whether toxic algal blooms shutting down Toledo痴 drinking water supply, invasive carp threatening billion-dollar fisheries, or contaminated sediments restricting recreational opportunities; and

Whereas, The time to act is now. The ecological, economic, and health risks are too high. The problems will only get worse and the solutions more expensive and challenging in the future; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we memorialize the President and Congress of the United States to increase funding for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to $475 million per year to boost the region痴 work of cleaning up toxic contamination, reducing runoff pollution, stopping invasive species, and protecting and restoring wetlands and other habitats; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation.

 

 

Reps. Hood, Garza, Coleman, Haadsma, Witwer, Whitsett, Sowerby, Shannon, Rabhi, Cynthia Johnson, Tate, Gay-Dagnogo, Ellison, Camilleri, Pohutsky, Warren, Sabo, Brixie, Kuppa, Hoadley, Love, Hope, Peterson, Cherry, Greig, Koleszar, VanSingel, Lasinski, Pagan, Brann, Clemente, Wittenberg, Manoogian, Chirkun and Kennedy offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 158.

A resolution to memorialize the federal government to support strong ballast water rules and efforts at Brandon Road Lock and Dam to prevent and control the introduction and spread of invasive species in the Great Lakes region.

Whereas, The Great Lakes are a critical resource for our nation and central to the economy, heritage, and quality of life in Michigan and the other seven states within the Great Lakes region. The Great Lakes drive a thriving regional economy, directly supporting 1.5 million U.S. jobs and generating $62 billion in wages; and

Whereas, Aquatic invasive species have altered the basic functions of the Great Lakes and its waterways, disrupting fisheries, wildlife, and water supplies. More than 180 non-native invasive species have established themselves in the Great Lakes over the years, costing the region an estimated $100 million per year or more; and

Whereas, Aquatic invasive species are a continuing threat to the Great Lakes and its regional economy and quality of life. Asian carp are on the verge of entering the Great Lakes and are a direct threat to the $7 billion Great Lakes fishing industry. In places in the Illinois River, these invasive fish make up 90 percent of the aquatic life present; and

Whereas, Ballast water carried in ships traversing the Great Lakes can contain non-native invasive species that are introduced and spread with unknown but potentially dire consequences when the ballast water is emptied into the Great Lakes. The impact of zebra and quagga mussels not only on the basic ecology of the Great Lakes but on drinking water systems, power plants, and other water users demonstrates the magnitude of the potential threat from invasive species contained in ballast water; and

Whereas, The installation of technologies at the Brandon Road Lock and Dam would be a major step in ensuring Asian carp and other invasive species do not move into the Great Lakes. The benefits of this project go beyond the Great Lakes and will provide solutions and tools that can be utilized in waterways across the nation to combat invasive species; and

Whereas, Efforts to prevent invasive species from entering the Great Lakes need to move forward as quickly as possible. The threat is imminent, and once invasive species get established in the Great Lakes, there is no way to clean up the problem. These harmful species will be here to stay; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we memorialize the President and Congress of the United States and the United States Army Corps of Engineers to support, fully fund, and expedite the plan to build new prevention measures at Brandon Road Lock and Dam; and be it further

Resolved, That we memorialize the President and Congress to support strong ballast water rules for every Great Lakes vessel to help stop and control the introduction and spread of invasive species in the Great Lakes region; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, the members of the Michigan congressional delegation, and the Commanding General and Chief of Engineers of the United States Army Corps of Engineers.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation.

House Resolution No. 159.

A resolution to urge the President and Congress of the United States and the United States Environmental Protection Agency to commit to assisting states in reducing nutrient pollution in the western Lake Erie basin by 40 percent by 2025.

Whereas, Harmful algal blooms threaten drinking water, outdoor recreation, and fish and wildlife in the Great Lakes region. These nutrient-fed toxic outbreaks in western Lake Erie and other areas of the region can impact large areas, with consequences for people痴 quality of life and for the water-dependent economy of Michigan and the other seven Great Lakes states; and

Whereas, The threat of harmful algal blooms is not hypothetical. Harmful algal blooms in the western Lake Erie basin are increasing in frequency and intensity, impacting Michigan痴 and Ohio痴 Great Lakes shoreline and recreation in these areas. Toxins produced by these harmful algal blooms can sicken people and pets exposed through swimming, wading, or boating and contaminate drinking water; and

Whereas, Little progress has been made toward reaching targets for nutrient reduction. Under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, the United States and Canada committed to reducing total phosphorus loads to Lake Erie by 40 percent, with Michigan, Ohio, and Ontario committing to hit this target by 2025. These ambitious targets require aggressive action, but unless efforts increase soon, these will end up being empty promises; and

Whereas, The potential for harmful algal blooms will only increase in the future. The continuing trend of higher temperatures and more intense rainfall expected with climate change create a recipe for larger and longer-lasting blooms with consequences for all water users; and

Whereas, States are doing their part to address harmful algal blooms. Michigan and other Great Lakes states have developed action plans to address nutrient pollution in Lake Erie. States need a robust and active federal partner to address the threat from harmful algal blooms; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge the President and Congress of the United States and the United States Environmental Protection Agency to commit to assisting states in reducing nutrient pollution in the western Lake Erie basin by 40 percent by 2025 by focusing federal funding, resources, and expertise to the problem while still maintaining the commitment to monitor, report, and reduce nutrient pollution in the other Great Lakes and regional water bodies; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, the members of the Michigan congressional delegation, and the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Natural Resources and Outdoor Recreation.

Cambensy, Coleman, Garza, Haadsma, Rabhi, Cynthia Johnson, Tate, Gay-Dagnogo, Ellison, Camilleri, Pohutsky, Warren, Sabo, Brixie, Kuppa, Hoadley, Love, Hope, Peterson, Elder, Cherry, Greig, Koleszar, VanSingel, Frederick, Lasinski, Pagan, Brann, Clemente, Wittenberg and Manoogian offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 160.

A resolution to urge Congress and the President to support federal funding for ports, harbors, and critical marine infrastructure in the Great Lakes region including the Soo Locks reconstruction project.

Whereas, The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway system is the longest deep-draft waterway in the world spanning from Duluth, Minnesota to the Atlantic Ocean. This commercial waterway provides cost-effective and reliable transportation for cargo, including iron ore, coal, steel, machinery, cement, and petroleum products that are staples in everyday life謡hether that be for road improvements or the energy powering our cities; and

Whereas, The economic importance of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway system cannot be overstated. Commerce along the seaway supported over 200,000 jobs and generated over $35 billion in economic activity in 2017 alone. Maintaining the ports, harbors, and critical infrastructure of the seaway is necessary to protect American industry and jobs; and

Whereas, Maintaining and updating the Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan is of utmost importance, not only to the residents of Michigan but to all Americans. Nearly 80 percent of domestic iron ore葉he primary material used to manufacture steel critical to the auto industry and construction葉ravels from mines in Minnesota and Michigan痴 Upper Peninsula through the Soo Locks; and

Whereas, Even a six-month unplanned closure at the Soo Locks would devastate steel, automobile, and other heavy equipment production throughout North America, decreasing U.S. gross domestic production by $1.3 trillion and costing more than 11 million jobs. The effect would ripple across national supply chains and eventually lead to a full shut down of steel production in Pennsylvania; and

Whereas, Congress has appropriated an initial $32 million to begin construction at the Soo Locks; however, the $1 billion project will require continued appropriation from Congress through the completion of the project. The economic risk of a Soo Locks closure is too great to delay funding for even one year; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge Congress and the President to support federal funding for ports, harbors, and critical marine infrastructure in the Great Lakes region including the Soo Locks reconstruction project; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Commerce and Tourism.

Haadsma, Garza, Coleman, Whitsett, Witwer, Sowerby, Shannon, Rabhi, Cynthia Johnson, Tate, Gay-Dagnogo, Ellison, Camilleri, Pohutsky, Warren, Sabo, Brixie, Kuppa, Hoadley, Love, Hope, Peterson, Elder, Cherry, Greig, Koleszar, VanSingel, Lasinski, Pagan, Brann, Clemente, Wittenberg, Manoogian, Chirkun and Kennedy offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 161.

A resolution to memorialize the United States Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Defense to increase federal action to address PFAS contamination.

Whereas, Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a large group of man-made chemicals with numerous household and industrial uses. PFAS have been shown to have a variety of health effects, including increasing the risk of developing cancer, thyroid disease, high blood pressure during pregnancy, and cholesterol. Their ubiquity in the environment, especially groundwater, and resistance to breakdown pose significant challenges to clean-up efforts. New toxicological research raises concerns about the adequacy of existing drinking water standards to protect the public from PFAS; and

Whereas, Water testing mandated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has revealed high levels of PFAS contamination across the Great Lakes region, impacting more than 16.5 million Americans. The United States Department of Defense (DOD) has identified more than 400 current and former military bases with known or suspected PFAS release. To date, the state of Michigan has identified 63 sites contaminated with high levels of PFAS, including 10 sites at or near military bases; and

Whereas, The state of Michigan has been a national leader in addressing PFAS contamination but relies on the coordination, leadership, and financial support of the federal government to surmount this complex challenge; and

Whereas, It is essential that federal agencies establish and implement PFAS response strategies in a timely manner to protect the health of all Americans. The EPA has indicated that it is moving forward with a PFAS Action Plan but uncertainty remains regarding its implementation timeline. Despite military bases being a substantial source of PFAS contamination, the DOD has failed to take action to address the issue. The DOD has established a PFAS Task Force, but its recommendations will only be the first step in addressing PFAS contamination on military bases and their surrounding communities; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we memorialize the United States Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Defense to increase federal action to address PFAS contamination; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Administrator of the United States Environュmental Protection Agency and the United States Secretary of Defense.
