Pastor Todd Vanaman of Dixie Baptist Church of Springfield Township offered the following invocation:

Dear Heavenly Father, we come before You today humbly asking for Your wisdom and guidance in the important work of our state government. I thank You for each of our elected officials in the Senate as well as the State House, the Governor, the executive officers, and our judges, along with their staff members. They have been given a wonderful privilege and unique responsibility of representing the people of the great state of Michigan. Their task is not an easy one, and so I lift each one up to You today in reverent intercessory prayer that empowers our work.

Your holy word reminds us that each of us are to, 釘e subject to the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of Godfor rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil and these men and women are, 鍍he ministers of God to us for good (Romans 13:1-4).

Your word also instructs and encourages us, 鍍hat, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth (1Timothy 2:1-4).

So I ask You again today, that we may receive Your words, and incline our ears unto wisdom, and apply our hearts to understanding, for we know that 鍍he Lord gives wisdom: out of his mouth comes knowledge and understanding. And then 努e shall understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yes, every good path (Proverbs 2:1-10).

I pray that Your truth and spirit guide each one in wisdom, in mind, in strength, in discernment, in judgment, and in ability. I ask Your blessing on them, and their families, for the sacrifices made in serving our people. Protect them, strengthen them, comfort them, encourage them, sustain them. May we look to You, the God of eternity, the God of all hope, the God of all comfort, the God of all mercy and grace. May we honor You as we seek to help others in our care. We know there is forgiveness with You, and we ask for it today, that Your blessing may rest on us for Your glory.

Finally, I thank You that You are a God who knows us and understands our weaknesses. You have promised us Your presence and peace as we seek You and find You. 典hough You are not far from every one of us (Acts 17:27). Lord, we need You and we call on You today to do for us what only You can do that Your will may be done on earth as it is in heaven.

And I pray that every member of every family represented here today may personally trust in You, and one day, meet in heaven at the feet of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ in whose name I pray, with thanksgiving. Amen.

Department of Transportation

 

Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity

 

Executive Reorganization

 

Michigan has long been the hub of mobility, and for over 100 years, the economic fortunes of its businesses, communities, and families have been closely tied to that sector of industry.

Today, the mobility sector is undergoing a period of unprecedented change. To secure its future prosperity, and to remain the global leader in this sector, Michigan must keep pace with this change. This will require a concerted, coordinated, and sustained effort across state government, as well as productive partnerships with stakeholders in the public and private sectors.

The Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity, with its focus on aligning and strengthening this state痴 economic and workforce development activities, is well suited to serve as the locus of this effort.

Section 1 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963 vests the executive power of the State of Michigan in the governor.

Section 2 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963 empowers the governor to make changes in the organization of the executive branch of state government or in the assignment of functions among its units that the governor considers necessary for efficient administration.

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Barrett痴 statement is as follows:

I wanted to just briefly talk about some of the merits of Senate Bill No. 686 that is before us today. This bill represents a codification of, I think, what we all believe should exist in statute already, which is this basic protection for employees of the state of Michigan葉he tens of thousands of employees who go to work each day and work hard on behalf of the taxpayers of this state葉o make sure they can have open and free communication with us as lawmakers. As we serve in an oversight role of the departments and positions that they hold and as they work with us collaboratively to make the best public policy we can and apply the best resources toward solving the problems of our state, we want to make sure we can have those open and candid conversations.

Senate Bill No. 686 allows state employees to come forward to state lawmakers and communicate openly with us without any fear of reprisal or disciplinary action by their department. I personally, and I知 sure many of you have as well, had interactions with state employees who have come to you about an improvement to their department or a process they would like to see changed or some type of issue they池e facing within the scope of their work. By us protecting that communication today, we can ensure that going forward we will continue to have those open and candid conversations.

I wanted to send a special appreciation to the Senator from the 23rd District who worked with me on this, and I look forward to bipartisan support on this bill.

Resolutions

 

 

Senator Nesbitt offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 104.

A resolution to oppose policies that restrict the autonomy of workers and employers and memorialize the President and Congress of the United States to support and defend the rights and freedoms of workers and employers.

Whereas, H.R. 2474 of 2019 and S. 1306 of 2019, both known as the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, have recently been introduced in the Congress of the United States. These bills would amend the National Labor Relations Act to expand the influence of unions, limit the autonomy of workers, and infringe on the rights of employers; and

Whereas, The PRO Act would limit worker autonomy by eliminating state right-to-work protections. Right-to-work laws are an important way to hold unions accountable and protect workers who do not wish to join. The PRO Act would eliminate these protections in 27 states, including Michigan, and force workers to pay union dues against their wishes; and

Whereas, The PRO Act would corrupt the union elections process. The act would eliminate secret ballot elections and expose employees to threats, intimidation, and coercion by union officials. Further, the act would deny employers a role in the process, preventing workers from accessing full information about the benefits and costs of unionization; and

Whereas, The PRO Act would upset the balance between workers and employers by prohibiting employers from replacing striking workers and leaving employers little choice but to accept union demands. This could lead to an increase in strikes and unrealistic union demands that increase prices and threaten the long-term viability of businesses; and

Whereas, The PRO Act would hurt franchisors and small businesses by broadening the federal government痴 屠oint employer standard. By holding joint employers equally liable for employment violations, the act will increase the risks for large businesses who franchise or contract with smaller companies. The American Action Forum estimates that this could lead to as much as $33 billion in lost output from the franchise business sector; and

Whereas, The PRO Act would forcibly reclassify many independent contractors as employees, taking away their flexibility and autonomy. This would also hurt businesses of all sizes across industries that rely on independent contractors, injecting uncertainty into their business plans and burdening them with significant costs; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we oppose policies that restrict the autonomy of workers and employers and memorialize the President and Congress of the United States to support and defend the rights and freedoms of workers and employers; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

Pursuant to rule 3.204, the resolution was referred to the Committee on Government Operations.

 

 

Senators Alexander, Geiss, Bullock, Polehanki, Moss, Bayer, McBroom, McCann, Lauwers, Wojno, Ananich and Hollier offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 105.

A resolution to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the ratification of the 15th Amendment.

Whereas, The United States Congress sought to correct an imbalance of power by expanding the national voting privilege for white male citizens above 21 years old to include African-Americans of similar distinction; and

Whereas, As a result, Congress proposed the 15th Amendment to the Constitution which would prohibit the denial of voting rights based on race, color, or previous condition of servitude; and

Whereas, On February 26, 1869, Congress voted to approve the 15th Amendment which was then submitted to the states for ratification. Michigan then ratified the 15th Amendment on February 3, 1870; and

Whereas, The 15th Amendment was the first constitutional amendment to grant voting rights to previously excluded Americans. This also set the precedent for fifty years later with the adoption of women痴 suffrage in the 19th Amendment to the Constitution; and

Whereas, For the past 150 years, the 15th Amendment served as the primary defense against systemic voter disenfranchisement endured by many over generations, while also becoming an integral component to the establishment and preservation of the Voting Rights Act of 1965; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That the members of this legislative body commemorate the 150th anniversary of the ratification of the 15th Amendment; and be it further

Resolved, That we recognize this historic action that upholds the fundamental, democratic principles cherished by its timeless words.

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

Senator MacGregor moved that the rule be suspended.

The motion prevailed, a majority of the members serving voting therefor.

The resolution was adopted.

Senator Santana was named co-sponsor of the resolution.

 

By unanimous consent the Senate proceeded to the order of
