Pastor Jim Riley, Pastor of Eaton Rapids Assembly of God in Eaton Rapids, offered the following invocation:

“Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for the gift of today. Thank You that we have the privilege and honor to be here today.

Lord, thank You for this great country, the United States of America that each one of us is so blessed to live in. Thank You for the freedoms and blessings that we enjoy that so many around the globe don’t have.

And, Lord, thank You for this great state of Michigan. I am thankful for the men and women, these representatives that sacrifice and serve our state so faithfully, diligently and to the best of their ability, all with the goal of making Michigan a better place for all of us.

Lord, we also pray for the nearly 10 million people that call this great state home that You would bless them, encourage them, strengthen them and help them to make ends meet and have their needs met. I also pray that our citizens would support, encourage and pray for these leaders that You have put in place and blessed us with. I pray that Michigan will continue to grow and thrive and be the best that we can possibly be.

Father, I ask that You would impart incredible wisdom, courage and strength to these faithful leaders before us today and use them to make a difference in our state, country and in the lives of our citizens.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Motions and Resolutions

Reps. Darany, Barnett, Cavanagh, Driskell, Geiss, Heise, Howrylak, LaVoy, O’Brien and Slavens offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 232.

A resolution to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the invention of the moving assembly line.

Whereas, The first functional moving assembly line was installed at Henry Ford’s Highland Park plant on October 7, 1913; and

Whereas, Divisible parts and the moving assembly line offered a continuous flow of work pieces that eventually cut the production of Model T automobiles from 12 hours to an hour and a half at peak production; and

Whereas, The moving assembly line increased profit in the industry allowing Henry Ford to improve working conditions, such as raising the daily wages of the factory workers while decreasing the workday from 9 to 8 hours a day; and

Whereas, Due to more automobiles being made at a lower production cost, the cost of Model T’s dropped from $825 to $525 in 1914. The moving assembly line provided affordable automobiles for the average citizen and was a keystone in Henry Ford putting the world on wheels; and

Whereas, The moving assembly line and divisible work force allowed Ford to produce automobiles at a record-breaking rate of one automobile every 49 seconds; and

Whereas, The combination of the record breaking rate of production and the demand for Henry Ford’s Model T led to over half of the automobiles owned in the United States in 1918 being made by Ford; and

Whereas, Henry Ford’s success enabled him to start construction on the Rouge Plant in Dearborn, Michigan in 1917. This was a stepping stone in employing more than 100,000 people at its peak in the 1930’s, including a multi-station fire department, a police force, a fully staffed hospital, and a maintenance staff; and

Whereas, The River Rouge plant created a foundation for a robust Michigan economy that has spread to every industrial nation and become the most familiar form of mass production; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body commemorate the 100th anniversary of the invention of the moving assembly line.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Abed, Tlaib, Darany, Slavens, Haugh, Dianda, Lamonte, Driskell, Kivela, LaVoy, Kandrevas, Irwin, Roberts, Price, Shirkey, Crawford, Outman, Lipton, Cochran, Oakes, Knezek, Barnett, Cavanagh, Geiss, Hooker, O’Brien and Segal offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 233.

A resolution to urge the Congress and the President of the United States to exempt National Guard personnel from sequestration cuts in the same manner as other military personnel were exempted.

Whereas, The Michigan National Guard has 11,703 active soldiers and airmen in its ranks. Approximately 22,000 Michigan soldiers and airmen have been mobilized since the start of the Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom campaigns. Over sixteen hundred Michigan soldiers and airmen are currently deployed in the Middle East region and all have fought valiantly; and

Whereas, Michigan’s Air and Army National Guard’s Major Subordinate Commands, including the 127th Wing (Selfridge Air National Guard Base), 110th Airlift Wing (Battle Creek National Guard Base), Joint Force Headquarters (Lansing), 46th Military Police Command (Lansing), 177th Military Police Brigade (Taylor), 63rd Regional Support Group (Wyoming), 272nd Troop Command (Jackson), and Michigan’s National Guard Training Facilities, including Camp Grayling (Grayling), Fort Custer (Augusta) and Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center (Alpena) are vital to our state’s and our nation’s security and military readiness; and

Whereas, The National Guard was already scheduled to make $487 billion in cuts over the next decade and sequestration will add an additional $500 billion. Under sequestration, uniformed military personnel are exempt from furlough days and pay cuts. However, members of the National Guard are not exempt. National Guard members will have sacrificed up to 20 percent of their pay every week through the end of September, 2013 as a result of the furloughs. In addition, significant budget cuts to the National Guard have placed the readiness of our military at home and abroad at risk. The justification for exempting all other military branches should be applied to the National Guard as well; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge Congress and the President of the United States to pass legislation recognizing that the National Guard components of the U.S. military are as pivotal and necessary to our success in armed conflicts as other branches of the Armed Forces, and therefore should not be treated differently when it comes to the effects of sequestration; 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 Military and Veterans Affairs.

Reps. Brinks, Zemke, Kivela, Brown, Driskell, Nathan, Haugh, Abed, Durhal, Irwin, Singh, Banks, Kandrevas, McCann, Slavens, Victory, VerHeulen, Callton, Yonker, Howrylak, Franz, Kelly, Genetski, Walsh, O’Brien, LaFontaine, Lyons, Foster, Lori, Price, Zorn, Pagel, Haines, Hovey-Wright, Cochran, Dillon, Lamonte, Schor, LaVoy, Lipton, Knezek, Townsend, Barnett, Cavanagh, Cotter, Denby, Geiss, Heise and Segal offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 234.

A resolution to declare October 2013 as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, October has long been recognized across America as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in an effort to raise public awareness about the importance of early detection; and

Whereas, In 2013, it was estimated that among U.S. women, there will be 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 64,640 new cases of in situ breast cancer along with 39,620 breast cancer deaths; and

Whereas, According to the Michigan Department of Community Health, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in Michigan and the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Michigan women; and

Whereas, In 2010, 6,918 women in Michigan were newly diagnosed with invasive breast cancer and 1,492 women died of the disease; and

Whereas, The five year survival rate among women whose breast cancer has not spread beyond the breast at the time of diagnosis is 98.3 percent; and

Whereas, All women are at risk for breast cancer and the two most important risk factors are being female and getting older; and

Whereas, Since the inception of Breast Cancer Awareness month in 1985, mammography use across America has doubled and breast cancer death rates have declined; and

Whereas, Efforts to promote increased mammography screening have resulted in the third Friday in October being declared National Mammography Day; and

Whereas, Even with impressive progress, many women do not utilize mammography or other recommended testing methods at regular intervals before physical symptoms can be seen or felt. Breast cancer deaths could decline further if all women age 40 and older received recommended screenings at regular intervals; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare October 2013 as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That the members of this legislative body urge all Michiganders to use this month as an opportunity to educate themselves about breast cancer and take proactive steps to reduce their risk and get appropriate screening.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Darany, Barnett, Cavanagh, Cotter, Driskell, Geiss, Heise, Howrylak, LaVoy, O’Brien, Segal and Slavens offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 235.

A resolution to declare October 6-13, 2013, as Mental Illness Awareness Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, In 1990, the U.S. Congress established the first full week of October as Mental Illness Awareness Week to increase public awareness of mental illness and to promote treatment and recovery; and

Whereas, It is estimated that more than 50 million Americans, including 348,000 adults in Michigan, suffer from some form of mental illness in a given year; and

Whereas, Mental illness may cause disturbances in thought and behavior that impacts daily routines; and

Whereas, Serious mental illness such as major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, severe anxiety disorders, borderline personality disorder, and posttraumatic stress disorders impact one in every four people annually; and

Whereas, An individual’s age, race, religion, or income plays no factor in whether one suffers from mental illness or not; and

Whereas, Serious mental illness is a highly treatable medical illness of the brain posing the same concern as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and other illnesses; and

Whereas, Scientific research is constantly working toward breakthroughs in the understanding of mental illness, resulting in more effective treatments to allow people to reclaim full and productive lives; and

Whereas, Misunderstandings exist about mental illness and social culture often wrongly imposes a stigma on mental illness; and

Whereas, Every citizen and community can make a difference in helping to improve the lives of individuals and families impacted by mental illness; and

Whereas, According to the U.S. Surgeon General, 10 percent of children and adolescents in the U.S. suffer from serious emotional and mental impairments; and

Whereas, Approximately 112,000 children in Michigan live with serious mental health conditions causing major functional impairment in their daily lives whether it be at home, school, or with peers; and

Whereas, Young people and adults suffering from mental illness now have new opportunities to live independent and productive lives thanks to the collaborative efforts of family members, professionals, and all levels of government who have worked to bring about significant change to the public perception on mental illness; and

Whereas, Mental health advocates across the country have joined together to sponsor activities, large or small, for public education about mental illness; and

Whereas, Mental Illness Awareness Week helps educate communities about mental health disorders and reduces the stigma that surrounds it. The importance of having good mental health cannot be overstated as it positively impacts overall health and personal well-being and also contributes to the ability to lead a healthy, balanced, and productive life; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare October 6-13, 2013, as Mental Illness Awareness Week in the state of Michigan. We urge increased public awareness of mental illness to promote treatment and recovery.
