Rep. Scott A. VanSingel, from the 100th District, offered the following invocation:

 

擢ather, we come to You today in gratitude for the great gift of self-government which our nation has enjoyed for over 245 years. You have blessed this nation more than any nation in history and for that we are truly grateful.

We also come to You today as a people and nation in need. When we look to Your word, we see many promises and today we pray those promises back to You. Your word tells us in Psalm 33 that 礎lessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. We ask that You would be lifted up and be the hope and focus of our nation, and that we may receive Your blessing.

Your word tells us in Joshua 1 槽be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. We ask today that You grant the men and women in this chamber the courage to do what is right and what honors You, not simply what is popular.

In 2 Corinthians 13 we are told 詮inally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. We ask You today to bring peace upon our nation as it is seeing division unlike any we have seen in generations. May those of us in elected office be leaders and peacemakers, not the source of division.

Today we ask the God Who parted the Red Sea, raised the dead, and created the universe from nothing, hear our prayers and continue to bless our nation. We ask these things in Jesus name. Amen.

Reps. Shannon, Aiyash, Brabec, Tyrone Carter, Cavanagh, Haadsma, Hope, Kuppa, Lasinski, Rabhi, Rogers, Sabo, Sneller, Sowerby, Steenland, Thanedar, Weiss, Witwer and Young offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 170.

A resolution to declare October 2021 as Filipino American History Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Michigan is home to more than 40,000 individuals claiming Filipino heritage who have had a profound and positive impact on this state; and

Whereas, October was the month selected by the Filipino American Historical Society (FANHS) because it was October 1587 in Morro Bay, California, that the first known Filipinos arrived in America; and

Whereas, Since immigrants from the Philippines first established their roots in Michigan, they have become leaders in every aspect of our communities, enriching our schools, businesses, civic life, and social organizations across the state; and

Whereas, Dr. Felicisima 撤ing Serafica was the first Filipina American professor of psychology to receive tenure in the United States. She helped establish one of the Philippines first hospitals for children with mental disabilities and the country痴 first interdisciplinary mental health clinic. By extension, Filipino Americans continue to play an integral role in Michigan痴 health care system as nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals; and

Whereas, Filipino Americans have contributed greatly to music, dance, literature, journalism, sports, fashion, politics, government, science, technology, the fine arts, and other fields in the U.S. that enrich the landscape of the this country. Dr. Dawn Bohulano Mabalon became the first Filipina to receive a Ph.D. in History from Stanford University. She was a professor, a historic preservationist, and the author of Little Manila is in the Heart and Journey for Justice: The Life of Larry Itliong; and

Whereas, These contributions reflect a culture which values and prioritizes family and community, which takes pride in hard work and diligence, and which celebrates its collective identity; and

Whereas, It is imperative for Filipino-American youth to have positive role models to instill in them the significance of education, complemented with the richness of their ethnicity and the value of their legacy; and

Whereas, Filipino Americans have also improved our state through their commitment to fostering institutions that have helped to eliminate prejudices and stereotypes and establish the kind of cross-cultural dialogue and understanding that makes our state a diverse and welcoming place for all; and

Whereas, Thanks in no small part to the efforts of Michigan痴 Filipino Americans, the United States continues to strengthen its relationship with the Filipino American community and to continue to promote the culture, values, history, and traditions of the Philippines; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare October 2021 as Filipino American History Month in the state of Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That with the declaration of Filipino American History Month, we acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of Filipino Americans, who have greatly enriched Michigan痴 economy, civic life, and state culture.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

House Resolution No. 171.

A resolution to declare October 2021 as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

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

Whereas, In 2021, it is estimated 8,700 Michigan women have been diagnosed with breast cancer, with 281,550 newly diagnosed across the nation. Tragically, about 1,420 Michiganders and 43,600 Americans succumbed to their breast cancer battle this year; and

Whereas, In the United States, 1 in 196 women under 40 years of age is diagnosed with breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common cancer type amongst adolescent and young females, accounting for 30% of diagnosed cancer cases in American women. Diagnosed cases of invasive breast cancer in women 15‑39 years old have increased since 2004. Along with these increasing rates, women under 40 are 39% more likely to die of breast cancer than older women even if diagnosed in early stages; and

Whereas, The use of mammography in the U.S. has been credited with doubling the detection of early stage breast cancer and breast cancer death rates have steadily declined since the 1990s; and

Whereas, Efforts to promote increased mammogram 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 mammograms or other recommended testing methods at regular intervals before physical symptoms can be seen or felt. Breast cancer deaths may continue to decline if women are able to receive recommended screenings at regular intervals; and

Whereas, Breast cancer does not discriminate. Women from all walks of life, of all ages and backgrounds are at risk of developing breast cancer. Breast Cancer Awareness month sheds light on preventative treatments and measures women can utilize to fight off breast cancer before it occurs, or detect breast cancer in its early stages. Access to preventive care and quality treatment saves the lives of breast cancer patients; now, therefore, it be

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare October 2021 as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the state of Michigan. We urge all Michiganders to use this month as an opportunity to educate themselves about breast cancers and take proactive steps to reduce their risks and get appropriate screenings.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Rep. Aiyash, having reserved the right to explain his nay vote, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

I voted 創o on House Bill 4492 because I believe elections should happen in public places. When voting, the most basic right in a democracy, is allowed to take place in private facilities, it takes something away from the freedom and accessibility of elections. Everyone should feel comfortable and welcome in their polling place, and ensuring democratic process takes place in a public facility safeguards the inclusivity of elections.

Rep. Young, having reserved the right to explain her nay vote, made the following statement:

溺r. Speaker and members of the House:

Mandating voters to vote at private venues could create apprehension for some voters as they may not feel comfortable due to the exclusivity of private venues.

Everyone should feel comfortable and welcome in their polling place, and ensuring democratic process takes place in a public facility safeguards the inclusivity of elections.
