Pastor Andrew Filizetti, Pastor of First Baptist Church in Norway, offered the following invocation:

“Most gracious God and eternal Father, we gather here today in this chamber as a grateful people who enjoy the many blessings You have bestowed on this great state.

We are grateful for Your vision, which inspired the founders of our nation to create this democracy in which we live.

We remember before You today the members of this House of Representatives. We commend them to Your care. Give them courage as they lead this state, give them strength to carry out their duties and to face the daily challenges which beset them and grant them a sense of Your presence in all that they do. We pray for their families. Support them and hold them in the palm of Your hand while their loved ones are absent from them. We thank You for the great sacrifice of their service.

Today, we pray that You will cause them to be men and women of Integrity and lead them with Your life-giving spirit. Fill them with a love for truth and righteousness that they may serve You and this state ably and are glad to do Your will. Endow their hearts with Your spirit of wisdom that they may lead us in renewing the ‘ties of mutual respect which form our civic life.’

Sustain them as they lead us to exercise our privileges and responsibilities as citizens and residents of this state that we may all work together to eliminate poverty and prejudice so ‘that peace may prevail with righteousness and justice with order.’

Strengthen their resolve as our state seeks to serve You in this world, that this good and generous State may be a blessing to our Country and to the nations of the world. May they lead us to become, in the words of Martin Luther King, members of a beloved community, loving our neighbors as ourselves so that all of us may more closely come to fulfill the promise of our founding fathers-one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

All this we ask in the precious name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

Motions and Resolutions

Reps. Cavanagh, Irwin, Lipton, Stallworth, Tlaib, Rutledge, Bledsoe, Hovey-Wright, Geiss, Barnett, Nathan, Switalski, Brown, Darany, Slavens, Smiley, Ananich, Durhal, Santana, Jackson, Lindberg, Haugh, McCann, Brunner, Stapleton, Bauer, LeBlanc, Liss and Segal offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 228.

A resolution to implore the Michigan Department of Treasury to conduct a financial review of the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association (MCCA) to consider the appointment of an emergency financial manager.

Whereas, The Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association (MCCA) is an insurance fund that provides for the care of Michigan drivers who are catastrophically injured in an auto accident. The MCCA reimburses no-fault auto insurers for all benefits that exceed $500,000, spreading costs among all motorists since every Michigan driver is required by law to carry valid insurance; and

Whereas, The MCCA is responsible for charging only what is necessary and “sufficient to cover the expected losses and expenses of the association that the association will likely incur during the period for which the premium is applicable”, (MCL 500.3104(7) (d)). The total number of accidents and the severity of injuries in these accidents has been declining every year; and

Whereas, The MCCA has raised its annual rates from $5.60 to $145 per insured vehicle since 2000 – an increase of 2,489 percent. The MCCA just mandated another 21 percent increase beginning July 1, 2012 that forces every driver to pay $175 per vehicle, the highest amount ever levied. There is currently $13.7 billion in the MCCA reserves and this fund grows every year. Michigan drivers pay these fee increases without knowing if they are truly justifiable. The MCCA Board is not required to disclose their finances to the public for accountability and scrutiny. These MCCA decisions are made outside of the Open Meetings Act and the Freedom of Information Act even though these decisions affect every driver in the state of Michigan; and

Whereas, Proponents of changing our auto-no fault law consistently make the claim that the current law is broken and unsustainable and that insurance companies cannot maintain the level of benefits for drivers and those suffering long-term catastrophic injuries in auto accidents. On October 11, 2011 the Michigan Association of Insurance Agents (MAIA) testified before the House Insurance Committee on the financial stability of the MCCA and it believes there is significant concern for the financial integrity of the MCCA. These arguments for change are based on the belief that a financial emergency exists in the auto insurance industry and the MCCA. Financial information regarding the MCCA is not public and these claims are impossible to verify.

Whereas, Michigan’s Emergency Financial Manager Law exists to, theoretically assist institutions created by state statute suffering from a financial emergency and to help them get their finances in order. MCCA is a creature of statute framed and granted authority by the legislature of the State of Michigan; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we implore the Michigan Department of Treasury to conduct a financial review of the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association (MCCA) to consider the appointment of an emergency financial manager; and be it further

Resolved that a copy of this resolution be transmitted to the State Treasurer.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Insurance.

Reps. Brown, Barnett, Bauer, Byrum, Darany, LeBlanc, Liss, Segal, Slavens and Talabi offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 229.

A resolution to declare April 17, 2012, as Pay Equity Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Nearly 50 years after the passage of the Equal Pay Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, women and people of color continue to suffer the consequences of inequitable pay differentials; and

Whereas, According to statistics released in 2011 by the U.S. Census Bureau, year-round, full-time working women in 2010 earned only 77% of the earnings of year-round full-time working men , indicating little change or progress in pay equity; and

Whereas, Higher education is not free from wage discrimination. According to a U.S. Department of Education analysis, after controlling for rank, age, credentials, field of study and other factors, full-time female faculty members earn nearly 9% less than their male counterparts; and

Whereas, According to statistics released in 2010 by the U.S. Census Bureau, Michigan women earned only $34,542 compared to men making $48,066. Looking at year-round, full-time college educated workers, Michigan women earned 72% of the earnings of their male counterparts, with Michigan ranking 46th in the nation; and

Whereas, Over a working lifetime, this wage disparity costs the average American woman and her family $700,000 to $2 million in lost wages, impacting Social Security benefits and pensions; and

Whereas, Fair pay equity policies can be implemented simply and without undue costs or hardship in both the public and private sectors; and

Whereas, Fair pay strengthens the security of families today and eases future retirement costs, while enhancing the American economy; and

Whereas, April 17, 2012, symbolizes the time in the new year in which the wages paid to American women catch up to the wages paid to men from the previous year; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare April 17, 2012, as Pay Equity Day in the state of Michigan. We urge Michigan’s citizens to recognize the full value of women’s skills and significant contributions to the labor force and encourage businesses to conduct an internal pay evaluation to ensure women are being paid fairly.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Commerce.

Reps. Lori, Barnett, LeBlanc, Liss and Slavens offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 230.

A resolution to declare April 28, 2012, as Save The Frogs Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Our state is blessed with numerous wetlands, streams, lakes and rivers within its boundaries; and

Whereas, Numerous species of amphibians and other animals inhabit these wetland areas, and

Whereas, Amphibians, including the twelve species of frogs indigenous to the state, are among the most threatened animals on the planet, with two hundred species having become extinct in the wild since 1979; and

Whereas, Frogs provide invaluable services to humans by being an integral part of the natural food web in nature, eating large quantities of ticks, mosquitoes and other pest species that serve to carry diseases that can transmit fatal illnesses to humans; and

Whereas, As the natural food for many native fish, reptiles, birds and mammals, they provide sustenance to other species that we enjoy; and

Whereas, Frogs face a multitude of threats, including pollution, pesticides, habitat destruction, climate change, invasive species, infectious disease, and over-harvesting for the pet and bait trades and for food; and

Whereas, The citizens of the state deserve to have the pleasure to enjoy the sights and sounds of frogs in their native habitats, and amphibian conservation efforts will not be successful without an educated and informed public; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare April 28, 2012, as Save The Frogs Day in the state of Michigan. We urge all citizens to observe this occasion.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Lipton, Barnett, Darany, LeBlanc, Liss, Segal, Slavens and Talabi offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 231.

A resolution to declare April 16, 2012, as World Voice Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, It is estimated that nearly seven million Americans suffer from some form of voice disorder; and

Whereas, Voice disorders can impact the everyday lives of those affected by inhibiting their ability to effectively express themselves; and

Whereas, There are many ways in which people can conserve their voice and prevent the development of voice disorders including: keeping hydrated, minimizing activities causing vocal strain such as yelling, warming up before heavy vocal use, using appropriate breath support, using amplification, and paying attention to voice cues; and

Whereas, Persistent voice change can be a sign of a major medical problem; and

Whereas, It is important to draw state, national, and international awareness to the existence of voice disorders and the availability of services provided by otolaryngologists, the only medical doctor specifically trained to treat the ear, nose, throat, head and neck, as well as other specialized providers for the amelioration of these disorders; and

Whereas, Every year on April 16, otolaryngologists, who are head and neck surgeons, and other voice health professionals worldwide join together to recognize World Voice Day, an international celebration of the human voice established to help raise public and professional awareness about voice disorders; and

Whereas, World Voice Day, sponsored in the U.S. by the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, encourages men and women, young and old, to assess their vocal health and take action to improve or maintain good voice habits; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare April 16, 2012, as World Voice Day in the state of Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That we encourage all citizens to practice techniques that may help prevent the onset of a voice disorder or to visit an otolaryngologist if they are suffering from a voice disorder.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Rep. Stamas moved to vacate the enrollment of House Bill No. 4845.

Michigan House of Representatives

State Capitol

Lansing, MI 48909-7536

Ladies and Gentlemen:

Today I have signed Enrolled House Bill 4289, which makes supplemental appropriations for various departments and agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2012.

However, I have disapproved one item pursuant to Section 19 of Article V of the Michigan Constitution of 1963.

This provision uses disproportionate share hospital funds that the fiscal year 2013 Executive Budget recommends carrying forward for use in fiscal year 2013. The specific item veto is contained in the attached copy of the bill that has been filed with the Secretary of State.

I thank the Legislature its work on this bill.

Respectfully,

Rick Snyder

Explanation of “No” Votes

Rep. Townsend, having reserved the right to explain his protest against the passage of House Bill No. 5033, made the following statement:

“Mr. Speaker and members of the House:

I voted no on passage of House Bill 5033 for a number of reasons. The State stands to lose money with this proposal - in additional administrative costs to do the tests, needs for greater manpower to complete all of the cases and the added requirements would necessitate new hires or overtime. Benefit denials would affect federal funding coming into the state and not save state funding, because food assistance program benefits are paid for with 100% federal funding.

HB 5033 represents bad public policy - we need to encourage savings to help lift people out of poverty. One of the most promising anti-poverty efforts of recent times have been-asset building initiatives piloted in Michigan and states all of the country. HB 5033 would have the opposite effect by causing people to spend down their savings in order to get help to feed their kids. Unlike income tests, there’s no way to know for sure if the information being presented by the applicant is complete. Without a fact checking mechanism those people that are already playing the system can continue to do so, thereby getting around the intent of this legislation - to avoid fraud and unnecessary assistance. Finally, implementing an asset test and requiring workers to verify assets will increase the error rate and Michigan runs the risk of being fined by the federal government.

Mr. Speaker, it’s clear that the legislation before us today is not ready for approval and, therefore, a no vote was the best option for our state and residents.”
