Heavenly Father, to begin with, we want to thank You so much for the blessings of being able to call ourselves Americans; for the blessings of being able to call ourselves Michiganders. God, You have been so good to each and every one of us. Lord, we are so undeserving, but we thank You anyway.

Heavenly Father, I pray, dear God, that Your Holy Spirit would go before me and that You would direct my words to be Your words. Don’t let me screw this up, dear Lord. Let me lift up Your Son Jesus Christ and Your kingdom, dear God.

Lord, I do ask for forgiveness for myself; for the sins knowing and unknowing that I have done. Heavenly Father, I pray that all of us would seek Your face in self-examination. Lord, I pray for these men and women here today, dear God; that You would bless each and every one of them; Lord, that You would bless their children, their spouses, the ground that they walk upon, dear Lord. Heavenly Father, I pray that You would fill them with Your Holy Spirit as they make these super-important decisions here today, dear God.

Lord, I continue to pray for our state, Lord, our leaders; those whom You put in position, dear God. I pray, heavenly Father, that Your hand would be upon them, and as a nation, dear God, that Your hand of protection would be upon us. God, You have been so good to us. Help us to remember that on a daily basis. Lord, help us to stay humble, dear God, and to seek Your face and to turn from our wicked ways, dear God, so that You will hear from heaven and bless our land once again.

Heavenly Father, I continue to hold up those who have no voice. Lord, I continue to pray for the unborn, dear God, the elderly, the poor, and the sick. Lord, we all need Your touch, heavenly Father. Lord, I pray, dear God, that You would use each and every one of us today to brighten somebody’s day, whether it be through handshakes, a smile, through whatever it is, dear God, that You would use us.

We thank You and we love You. In the name of Your precious Son Jesus Christ, our Lord and our Savior. Amen.

The President, Lieutenant Governor Calley, led the members of the Senate in recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Substitute (S-1).

The substitute was adopted.

The resolution as substituted was adopted.

Senators Colbeck, Green, Nofs, Robertson and Booher offered the following concurrent resolution:

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 23.

A concurrent resolution to request that the United States Congress enact legislation and that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services promulgate rules that would promote the opportunity for consumers to choose Direct Primary Care Services as an integral part of their health care plan.

Whereas, Direct Primary Care Services (DPCS) provides patients with low-cost access to primary care services that promote preventative care; and

Whereas, Access to preventative care provided by primary care service providers has been demonstrated to reduce hospitalization, improve health outcomes for consumers, and lower the premiums for catastrophic insurance plans; and

Whereas, Gaps in health care services provided by DPCS can be filled with wraparound insurance plans at a much lower cost than traditional insurance plans inclusive of primary care services; and

Whereas, Section 10104 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) allows for Direct Primary Home Services; and

Whereas, Section 1301 of the ACA requires a Qualified Health Plan; and

Whereas, Section 1302 of the ACA requires health coverage that meets the minimum essential benefit requirements in order to avoid tax penalties from the Internal Revenue Service; and

Whereas, DPCS used in concert with wraparound insurance plans provides a means of satisfying the requirements of the ACA in a manner that lowers the cost of health care, expands access to care, and improves the quality of care received; and

Whereas, The current federal tax code treats direct care membership as a form of insurance, inhibiting individuals from opening Health Savings Accounts if they are also enrolled in a high-deductible insurance plan; and

Whereas, Current law allows direct primary care practices to be treated as medical home services if the practices meet certain requirements. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for setting these requirements, but has not yet done so; and

Whereas, Current law features balanced billing limitations that require physicians to drop out of Medicare for two years if they accept direct payment from Medicare beneficiaries; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That we request that the United States Congress enact legislation reforming the federal tax code to allow direct primary care payment for services through tax-deferred or tax-exempt accounts, such as Health Savings Accounts; and be it further

Resolved, That we request that the United States Congress enact legislation and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services promulgate rules that explicitly allow medical home services to include direct primary care arrangements; and be it further

Resolved, That we request that the United States Congress enact legislation and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services promulgate rules that allow Medicare patients to pay doctors directly outside of the traditional Medicare program; and be it further

Resolved, That we request that the United States Congress enact legislation and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services promulgate rules that encourage states to enable Medicaid patients to pay doctors directly for routine medical services; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

Pending the order that, under rule 3.204, the concurrent resolution be referred to the Committee on Government Operations,

Senator Meekhof 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 concurrent resolution,

Senator Meekhof moved that the concurrent resolution be referred to the Committee on Health Policy.

The motion prevailed.

Senators Brandenburg, Jansen and Pappageorge were named co‑sponsors of the concurrent resolution.

House Concurrent Resolution No. 35.

A concurrent resolution relative to secondary road patrol funds for counties providing road patrol services to cities and villages.

Whereas, Section 77 of 1846 RS 14, MCL 51.77, provides funding for county secondary road patrol services pursuant to an agreement with the Office of Criminal Justice, which, pursuant to Executive Order No. 1989 – 4, is now the Office of Highway Safety Planning within the Department of State Police. An agreement also provides a maintenance of law enforcement effort standard for counties providing these secondary road patrol services, unless it is recognized that the reduction was due to cuts in general services due to economic conditions; and

Whereas, Section 76 of 1846 RS 14, MCL 51.76, permits road patrol services to be provided by county sheriff departments to cities and villages. This section also provides that a road patrol agreement is void if the city or village reduces the number of sworn law enforcement officers below the highest number employed at any time within the immediately preceding 36 months, unless the Michigan Legislature, by concurrent resolution, recognizes that the reduction was due to cuts in general services due to economic conditions; and

Whereas, Section 77 of 1846 RS 14, MCL 51.77, provides a formula for funding county secondary road patrol services. This formula permits road patrol services provided by county sheriff departments to cities and villages to be eligible for secondary road patrol funding as long as the city or village complies with the MCL 51.76 law enforcement maintenance of effort requirement, unless any reduction is recognized to be due to cuts in general services due to economic conditions; and

Whereas, In all of Michigan’s counties, cities, and villages, general services have been reduced as a result of serious economic difficulties. These reductions in services have occurred in direct reaction to economic conditions; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That, for Fiscal Year 2015, counties, cities, and villages in Michigan have been required to reduce general services because of economic conditions and are not reducing law enforcement services as stipulated in sections 76 or 77 of 1846 RS 14; and be it further

Resolved, That counties, cities, and villages have met the necessary terms of their agreements for road patrol services and secondary road patrol funding as they relate to maintenance of effort.

The House of Representatives has adopted the concurrent resolution.

Pending the order that, under rule 3.204, the concurrent resolution be referred to the Committee on Government Operations,

Senator Meekhof 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 concurrent resolution,

Senator Meekhof moved that the concurrent resolution be referred to the Committee on Appropriations.

The motion prevailed.

Senators Booher, Colbeck, Hansen, Marleau and Pappageorge were named co‑sponsors of the concurrent resolution.

Statements

Senator Bieda asked and was granted unanimous consent to make a statement and moved that the statement be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Bieda’s statement is as follows:

I lost a friend last week, Janice Wilson. She passed away peacefully on September 16, 2014. She was born March 14, 1937, to Marion and Aileen Wandell Burrell in Metz, Indiana. She was united in marriage to the late Gerald Robert Wilson in 1959, and is survived by their children: Robert and his wife Barbara Wilson of Rochester Hills; and Amy and her husband Martin Folliard of Naperville, Illinois. She has four wonderful grandchildren: Anton and Sasha Wilson and Anna and Timothy Folliard. She is also survived by her siblings: Joann Bistel; June Person; Nancy and her husband Daniel Polzien; and Jerry and his wife Marie Burrell. She was also predeceased by her sister Rosalie Parrish and brothers John, Jim, and Jack Burrell. She is also survived by many cousins, nieces, and nephews, along with a lot of friends in the community.

She was a graduate of Ball State Teachers College and had a master’s degree from Wayne State University, where she taught in the graduate program. Jan was employed by the Macomb Intermediate School District, working with children with disabilities and their families for 42 years. She was elected to the Fraser City Council and served 26 years, including several years as the mayor pro tem. Jan was appointed by Governor Blanchard to the Michigan Air Pollution Control Commission and later by Governors Granholm and Snyder to the Governor’s Commission on Services to the Aging.

Jan was very active in the community. She was a founding member of the Macomb County Inter-Agency Council and the Macomb County Child Abuse and Neglect Information Community Mental Health Board. She received an award for her exceptional efforts advocating for persons served by the community mental health system. She was an ambassador to CARE of Southeastern Michigan. Jan was a member of the Fraser Educational Foundation, Fraser Community Action Team, Fraser Goodfellows, and Friends of the Fraser Public Library. She was a member of the Retired and Senior Volunteer program, where she delivered Meals on Wheels. In 2013, she was nominated for the Athena Award, and she received the James O’Hara Award from the Macomb County Democratic Party and the Heart of the Lion award from the Fraser Lions Club.

Jan was a beacon to our community, and she lived life with love and purpose. She will be deeply missed. She was somebody who gave of herself her entire life, and it is really no surprise that, even in death, she donated her body for organ transplants and for medical research.

A moment of silence was observed in memory of Janice Wilson, former Fraser City Council member and community activist.
