Pastor Chuck Snyder, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church in Charlotte, offered the following invocation:

“Heavenly Father, today it is in Your presence that we bow. As we gather here we recognize that You are the one who has established the authority of government and it is You that has entrusted to these representatives the business of this great state of Michigan. We thank You for the many ways in which You have blessed this state and this Nation.

And today, as Your Word directs us, we seek Your wisdom. We admit that we need Your direction, and we desire Your support as this meeting begins. We recognize that there are many conflicting interests, difficult issues, and a variety of opinions represented here. In light of that reality, we ask that all would be respectful of those differences and not threatened by them. That there would not be division, but unity. There is work that needs to be done, and we ask that we find common ground that will enable us to move forward with shared purpose.

I ask Your blessing upon the members of this assembly. I ask that each representative would fully understand the trust (and responsibility) that has been given to them…not only to represent those who cast votes in favor of their appointment, but also for those who did not. Again we recognize that there are many challenges demanding their attention, and there are difficult decisions that must be made in these difficult times. And so I ask that You guide and direct this meeting so that it is full of wisdom, meaningful discussion, and productivity. Help them to make the wise decisions that are necessary to govern well.

And so we ask, Father, that You would open our ears so that we may hear Your voice. Open our minds so that we may receive of Your infinite wisdom. And open our hearts so that we may experience Your wonderful love. Fill this meeting with Your presence, and fill our conversations with Your grace and truth…for Your glory…not ours…

We ask these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.”

Messages from the Senate

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 23.

A concurrent resolution of tribute offered as a memorial for Vernon J. Ehlers, former member of the Michigan House of Representatives and Senate and the United States House of Representatives.

Whereas, The members of this legislative body were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Vern Ehlers. He was a great man and a true statesman. He will be remembered as a dedicated public servant by his constituents in the west Michigan area, the state of Michigan, and the country; and

Whereas, Vern Ehlers was born in Pipestone, Minnesota, and attended Calvin College before transferring to the University of California at Berkeley where he ultimately completed a Ph.D. in nuclear physics in 1960. He taught and performed research at Berkeley for several years and then returned to Calvin College to teach physics for another 16 years. During this time, he also served as a volunteer science advisor to then-U.S. Representative Gerald R. Ford; and

Whereas, Dr. Ehlers’ career in elected office started on the Kent County Board of Commissioners, where he served from the mid-1970s through the early 1980s. In 1983, he was elected to the Michigan House of Representatives. He later moved to the Michigan Senate, first elected in 1985 and serving through 1993 until his election to Congress. Vern Ehlers served 17 years in the U.S. House of Representatives and was the first ever research physicist to join the body; and

Whereas, Vern Ehlers believed in the power of science and technology to improve public policy, increase government transparency, and strengthen our state and nation. He worked on policy and served on committees dealing with health, technology, education, the environment, and natural resources while in the Michigan Legislature. This trend continued into Congress, as he led efforts to pass legislation to clean and protect the Great Lakes and encourage STEM education, only a couple of his myriad accomplishments. Dr. Ehlers was also a fiscal conservative who believed in an efficient, limited government with balanced budgets that spent taxpayer dollars wisely. He contributed valuable ideas and crafted beneficial laws with lasting impacts in his legislative work at the local, state, and national levels; and

Whereas, Throughout his 35 years in public office, Vern Ehlers was known as an honest, hard-working person of the highest integrity. He was looked to for his leadership, calm disposition, and remarkable intelligence. In his career in research and education, many years in public office, and other parts of his life, Dr. Ehlers was a man of distinction and respect. His service will continue to be an example for others to follow in this Legislature, Congress, the scientific community, and elsewhere; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), That we offer this expression of our highest tribute to honor the memory of Vernon J. Ehlers, a member of the Michigan House of Representatives from 1983 to 1985, the Michigan Senate from 1985 to 1993, and the United States House of Representatives from 1993 to 2011; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Ehlers family as evidence of our lasting esteem for his memory.

The Senate has adopted the concurrent resolution.

The Speaker and the entire membership of the House of Representatives were named co‑sponsors of the concurrent resolution.

The question being on the adoption of the concurrent resolution,

The concurrent resolution was adopted by unanimous standing vote.

By unanimous consent the House returned to the order of

Motions and Resolutions

Reps. Cole, Clemente, Cochran, Cox, Elder, Ellison, Faris, Geiss, Green, Greig, Howrylak, Hughes, Jones, Marino, Maturen, Sabo, Schor, Singh, Sneller, Sowerby, Yaroch and Hoadley offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 151.

A resolution to declare September 24-30, 2017, as Rail Safety Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Sixty-eight crashes occurred at public highway-rail grade crossings, resulting in 8 fatalities and 26 injuries in Michigan during 2016; and

Whereas, Twelve trespassing incidents occurred in Michigan during 2016, resulting in the deaths of 9 pedestrians and injuring 6 others while trespassing on railroad property right of ways; and

Whereas, Michigan ranked in the top 10 nationally for highway-rail crossing incidents in 2016; and

Whereas, These incidents are preventable by educating and informing the public about rail safety, reminding the public that railroad right of ways are private property, enhancing public awareness of the dangers associated with highway-rail grade crossings, ensuring pedestrians and motorists are looking and listening while near railways, and obeying established traffic laws; and

Whereas, Michigan Operation Lifesaver, local and railroad law enforcement officers, first responders, and area railroad companies commit to partnering together in an effort to educate Michigan residents on all aspects of railroad safety; and

Whereas, This year, Michigan will be joining 47 other states in implementing “Operation Lifesaver,” a regional rail safety initiative during the Inaugural National Rail Safety Week; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare September 24-30, 2017, as Rail Safety Week in Michigan.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Camilleri, Chang, Clemente, Cochran, Cox, Elder, Ellison, Faris, Geiss, Green, Greig, Howrylak, Hughes, Jones, Maturen, Moss, Sabo, Singh, Sneller, Sowerby, Wittenberg and Hoadley offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 152.

A resolution to declare September 21, 2017, as Maltese American Heritage Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Malta is an archipelago of six islands in the Mediterranean Sea with a rich history dating back thousands of years. Because of their strategic location, the islands have served as a military asset for centuries, at times coming under the control of the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, French, and British. Malta gained its independence from the United Kingdom on September 21, 1964. With a population of under 450,000 people , Malta is now one of the world’s smallest and most densely populated countries. It is a popular tourist destination, boasting beautiful recreational opportunities, three UNESCO Heritage Sites , and some of the oldest freestanding structures in the world; and

Whereas, The United States is fortunate to be home to more than 38,000 Maltese Americans. The 2013 American Community Survey estimates that over 12,900 Michiganders are Maltese immigrants or children of Maltese immigrants, making the metro-Detroit area the largest concentration of Maltese Americans in the nation. Citizens of Maltese descent, in each generation, from the factory workers who helped shape Michigan’s automobile industry to the entrepreneurs who opened restaurants that are still serving the metro-Detroit community today, have used ingenuity, dedication, and relentless hard work to find economic opportunities and provide better lives for their families. Maltese Americans have enhanced our culture, quality of life, and economic vitality through leadership, commitments to knowledge and advancement, and dedication to their communities. The state of Michigan and the United States of America have been enriched by the contributions of Maltese Americans in all facets of life, including the arts, sciences, business, education, and philanthropy; and

Whereas, Maltese American residents are proudly served in Michigan by the Maltese American Benevolent Society in Detroit and the Maltese American Community Club in Dearborn; and

Whereas, Michigan takes pride in its cultural diversity and welcomes the opportunity to honor our Maltese American residents for their lasting and expanding imprint upon our state; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare September 21, 2017, as Maltese American Heritage Day in the state of Michigan. We encourage all citizens to celebrate the individual and collective contributions of Maltese Americans to this state and to this country.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Bellino, Clemente, Cochran, Cox, Faris, Green, Howrylak, Jones, Maturen, Sabo, Singh, Sneller, Sowerby and Hoadley offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 153.

A resolution to declare September 24-30, 2017, as French-Canadian and Métis Heritage Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The legacy of the French-Canadian and Métis cultures in Michigan can be traced to the earliest French explorers, trade between the French and Native Americans, and missions, and settlements from the 17th century onward; and

Whereas, Archaeological excavations and extant forts, churches, homes, and trading posts from Michigan’s French era are found throughout the state; and

Whereas, French-Canadian and Métis agricultural practices deeply impacted the physical landscape in the form of ribbon farms, seen today in the streetscapes of the Detroit River region; and

Whereas, Detroit’s Jesuit Pears, known as French Pears in Frenchtown/Monroe, are a living agricultural link to the French era and constitute a unique contribution to regional biodiversity; and

Whereas, The celebration of French-Canadian/Métis cultures in Michigan is enhanced through the identification and display of artifacts, such as the Michilimackinac Rosary, the study of place names, and the recognition of the imprint left by their agricultural practices, logging, trapping, and fishing; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare September 24-30, 2017, as French-Canadian and Métis Heritage Week in the state of Michigan. We join all of those of French-Canadian and Métis ancestry in celebrating their heritage and contributions to the state of Michigan from September 24-30, 2017.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Lower, Victory, Barrett, Cole, VanSingel, Sheppard, Hoitenga, VerHeulen, Wentworth, Howell, Rendon and Sneller offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 154.

A resolution to encourage the Natural Resources Commission to add Sandhill cranes to the game species list and seek U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service approval to establish a Sandhill crane hunting season.

Whereas, Michigan is home to an ever increasing population of Sandhill cranes. An estimated 23,082 Sandhill cranes were reported in Michigan’s 2015 population survey, and over the past 10 years, the population has grown an average of 9.4 percent annually; and

Whereas, The increased Sandhill crane population in Michigan has created a conflict with Michigan farmers as the Sandhill cranes feed on seeds of germinating corn during their spring migratory season. The number of nuisance permits issued by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to farmers in Michigan to eradicate Sandhill cranes that are damaging their crops has increased from 13 in 2006 to 85 in 2013. Just half of the 2,002 Sandhill cranes authorized for killing in 2013 were taken; and

Whereas, Sandhill cranes killed under nuisance permits are a wasted resource as the meat is not harvested. Hunting Sandhill cranes would both help control the damage caused by cranes and offer Michigan residents an opportunity to harvest exceptional game meat; and

Whereas, Sandhill cranes are already hunted in Minnesota, Tennessee, and Kentucky when they migrate beyond Michigan’s borders. They are classified as a game species under the federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1916; and

Whereas, Hunting seasons are strictly regulated by the Mississippi Flyway Council and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to ensure that the Sandhill crane population remains robust. Under the Eastern Population Crane Management Plan, states may only receive approval for a hunting season after submitting pertinent information to the Mississippi Flyway Council, including an estimate of the peak number of Sandhill cranes and time of migration over a five-year period, proposed number of permits to be issued, and proposed season dates. States with hunting seasons are required to gather information from hunters and track the Sandhill crane population; and

Whereas, The Sandhill crane population in Michigan continues to grow even as the number of nuisance permits issued increases. However, overpopulation and continued damage to crops is a real concern if the species is not properly managed. A hunting season will benefit farmers, hunters, and the growing Sandhill crane population; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we encourage the Natural Resources Commission to add Sandhill cranes to the game species list and seek U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service approval to establish a Sandhill crane hunting season; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the members of the Michigan Natural Resources Commission, the Director of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, and the Governor of Michigan.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Natural Resources.

Reps. Hammoud, Gay-Dagnogo, Ellison, Wittenberg, Chang, Clemente, Cochran, Elder, Faris, Geiss, Green, Greig, Howrylak, Jones, Sabo, Schor, Singh, Sneller, Sowerby and Hoadley offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 155.

A resolution to declare October 2017 as 1001 Inventions Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The Michigan Science Center will host the award-winning international exhibition: 1001 Inventions: Untold Stories from a Golden Age of Innovation from October 7, 2017, until January 7, 2018; and

Whereas, Detroit is only the fourth American city to host the exhibit and its presence is the first time in five years the traveling exhibition has made an appearance in the United States; and

Whereas, The 1001 Inventions exhibition explores the legacy of scientific discovery and innovation during the golden age of Muslim Civilization, beginning in the 7th century and showcases the diverse spectrum of bold thinkers and new technologies that were produced by women and men in this multi-faith, multi-cultural civilization, reaching from Spain to China during the period leading up to the European Renaissance; and

Whereas, Detroit is a perfect fit for the exhibition as a recently declared UNESCO city of design and Michigan as a state that was built on innovation; and

Whereas, In the current political climate, an exhibition and a designation like this will help to dispel misconceptions about this period of time and encourage social cohesion and cultural connectedness and inspire young people to explore careers in STEM, particularly under-represented communities; and

Whereas, Designation of the month of October in Michigan to be 1001 Inventions Month will not only commemorate the arrival of this celebrated exhibition, but encourage design thinking and innovation throughout the state to spark the next golden age of innovation in Michigan. The designation of 1001 Inventions Month will encourage Michigan residents to celebrate innovative thinking and spark future innovations across cultures and backgrounds; and

Whereas, This is the first time in the exhibit’s 11-year history that its appearance has been totally funded by the local community thanks to the Friends of 1001 Inventions Michigan. The Friends of 1001 Inventions Michigan selected the Michigan Science Center as a host location in order to aid in the revitalization of Detroit and encourage STEM learning; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare October 2017 as 1001 Inventions Month in the state of Michigan. We encourage students, teachers, and Michigan’s residents to utilize the exhibition.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.
