Father, it is fitting and delightful to begin this day acknowledging You, our Creator. You have made us in Your own image and likeness. You have equipped us with unusual gifts, and then You have endowed us with the delegated authority of human government. We thank You for that opportunity. We thank You for these individuals who have given themselves to public service in this way.

Father, it is a great day in Michigan. The challenges are huge, the issues are incredibly complex, and we ask for wisdom and strength for these Senators and their staff members as they undergo incredible schedules and the burdens of the office. We pray that You would uphold them and allow them to make wise and skillful decisions that will bring You glory and be good for Your people.

We thank You this day for the opportunity to be a part of this state and its freedom. We trust that as this session of the Senate opens, it would be a significant time of progress and productivity. We pray, Father, that in the midst of it all that there be a great sense of Your presence. We thank You in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Protest

Senator Whitmer, under her constitutional right of protest (Art. 4, Sec. 18), protested against the passage of Senate Bill No. 156.

Senator Whitmer’s statement is as follows:

I voted “no” for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, as I read the bill, it says it’s a bill to amend the Michigan Business Tax Act. I found that interesting because I have heard many of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle say that they already eliminated the Michigan business tax, and here we are amending something that was supposedly gone.

I also voted “no” because we have received some preliminary estimates in terms of where our state budget is, and the news is not encouraging. One group is projecting over $400 million short, and tomorrow we will find out what the final figures are at the Revenue Estimating Conference. I would assert that perhaps now is not the time for yet another tax cut. This one is to the tune of $24 million, and I think it is not wise to pursue that in light of the budget troubles we have been given notice about.

The following bill was read a third time:

House Bill No. 5136, entitled

A bill to amend 1974 PA 258, entitled “Mental health code,” (MCL 330.1001 to 330.2106) by adding section 141a.

Senate Resolution No. 144.

A resolution designating June 27, 2014, as Michigan Post Traumatic Stress Injury Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The brave men and women of the United States armed forces, who proudly serve the United States, risk their lives to protect the freedom of the United States and deserve the investment of every possible resource to ensure their lasting physical, mental, and emotional well-being; and

Whereas, More than 2 million United States service members have deployed as part of overseas contingency operations since the events of September 11, 2001; and

Whereas, The military has sustained an operational tempo for a period of time unprecedented in the history of the United States, with many service members deploying multiple times to combat zones, placing them at high risk of post traumatic stress injury (PTSI); and

Whereas, It is expected that 10,000 veterans will return to the state of Michigan every year for the next three to five years after spending a significant amount of time in combat environments, exposing thousands of soldiers to traumatic life-threatening events; and

Whereas, The Department of Veterans Affairs reports that in fiscal year 2012, more than 500,000 veterans from all wars who sought care at a Department of Veterans Affairs medical center received treatment for PTSI; and

Whereas, PTSI significantly increases the risk of depression, suicide, and drug- and alcohol-related disorders and deaths; and

Whereas, Although the United States Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs have made significant advances in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of PTSI and the symptoms of PTSI, many challenges remain; and

Whereas, The establishment of a Michigan Post Traumatic Stress Injury Awareness Day will raise public awareness about issues related to PTSI; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That members of this legislative body designate June 27, 2014, as Michigan Post Traumatic Stress Injury Awareness Day; and be it further

Resolved, That we urge the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency and the Adjutant General to continue working to educate service members, veterans, the families of service members and veterans, and the public about the causes, symptoms, and treatment of post traumatic stress injury; and be it further

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be transmitted to the Governor of the state of Michigan, the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency, and the Adjutant General.

Senators Anderson, Bieda and Hopgood were named co‑sponsors of the resolution.

Senators Kahn, Richardville, Meekhof, Kowall, Moolenaar, Marleau, Schuitmaker, Hansen, Casperson, Emmons, Booher, Jansen, Robertson, Hune, Hildenbrand, Jones, Pappageorge, Pavlov, Proos, Colbeck, Walker, Nofs, Caswell, Green, Brandenburg, Ananich, Gregory, Hood, Young, Johnson, Bieda, Anderson, Hopgood, Smith, Hunter and Whitmer offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 145.

A resolution commemorating the Fifth Annual Michigan Chaldean American Legislative Day.

Whereas, 130,000 Chaldeans reside in the state of Michigan, the largest population outside of the Middle East; and

Whereas, The Chaldean population began immigrating to America during the 1920s for better economic, religious, and political freedom. They brought with them a strong work ethic which continues to positively impact the growth of Michigan through the establishment of 15,000 Chaldean-owned businesses throughout the state; and

Whereas, The Chaldean community has undoubtedly proven their diligent business skills and entrepreneurial spirit with nearly 61 percent of Chaldean-American households owning at least one business and 39 percent owning two or more businesses, as well as an estimated ownership of 9 out of 10 food stores in Detroit; and

Whereas, The Chaldean American Chamber of Commerce currently has 878 members, representing more than 3,500 businesses, with goals of building community ties, ensuring membership value, and advocacy for the benefit of Chaldean people; and

Whereas, The Chaldean Community Foundation has promoted steady population growth by providing services to the newly-arriving Iraqi Chaldean refugees in efforts to help them become contributing members to the great state of Michigan, through assistance with housing, job placement, language development, and social and government program directives; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we commemorate the Fifth Annual Michigan Chaldean American Legislative Day on May 15, 2014, with the entire state, to acknowledge the contributions of this innovative and entrepreneurial community as an important part of Michigan’s diverse history; and be it further

Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be transmitted to the Chaldean American Chamber of Commerce as evidence of our highest esteem.

Senator Rocca was named co‑sponsor of the resolution.

Senators Johnson, Hildenbrand, Bieda and Ananich offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 146.

A resolution to declare May 2014 as Hepatitis C Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Hepatitis is a known public health threat and is known to be caused by many viruses; and

Whereas, Chronic viral hepatitis due to hepatitis C has been a disease that has little or no public awareness due to its nature as being largely asymptomatic until irreversible liver damage has occurred; and

Whereas, Hepatitis C currently infects nearly 4 million Americans, including an estimated 100,000 to 200,000 Michiganders, and there are about 30,000 new cases and approximately 10,000 deaths each year in the United States; and

Whereas, The financial consequences of hepatitis C is approximately $7.5 million per 100,000 people; and

Whereas, Hepatitis C is largely not reported, and the public is uninformed about the virus, thus making it difficult to determine its true impact and reach; and

Whereas, In the absence of a vaccine for hepatitis C, emphasis must be placed on other means of disease prevention, including education of health care workers, emergency services workers, veterans, and the general public; and

Whereas, Hepatitis C has been characterized by the World Health Organization as a disease of primary concern to humanity; and

Whereas, It is imperative that there be greater public awareness of this serious health issue, and more must be done to increase activity at the state, local, and national levels to support the patients as well as their families; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That the members of this legislative body recognize May 2014 as Hepatitis C Awareness Month in the state of Michigan. We urge the citizens of this state to educate themselves about the causes, symptoms, diagnoses, and treatments for hepatitis C throughout this month and every month.

Senators Anderson, Booher, Hansen, Hopgood, Kowall, Marleau and Pappageorge were named co‑sponsors of the resolution.
