Rep. Abraham Aiyash, from the 4th District, offered the following invocation:

 

釘ismaAllah Al-Rahman, Al-Raheem. In the name of God, the most compassionate, the most merciful.

Lord, All praise is due to You - the most compassionate, the most merciful. Guide each and every one of us entrusted with the responsibility of serving our communities across the state.

Grant us the humility, compassion, and love for one another through the love we have for You.

Keep us on the path of those You have led before us, and not of those who have gone astray.

It is through You, Ar-Razzaq - our Provider, that we seek the power to provide for those in need.

Lord, You are As-Samee Al-Baseer - the All Seeing and All Hearing - give the conviction to remember that You see and hear all of which we do.

You are Al-Mujeeb, The One Who Responds to our Prayer - We pray for peace, reconciliation, and the protection of people and our planet.

You are Al-Haqq - the Absolute Truth - of all things known and unknown to us. Give us the wisdom to lead through Your Truth.

Lord, You are Al-Muqeet - The Sustainer - allow us to keep the fight for greater justice, no matter who or for it is against.

We pray that the trust in this institution is restored through You, Al-Jabber, for You are the Ultimate Restorer.

You are As-Samad - the Eternal - ever present, all knowing. Allow us to be cognizant of this as we deliberate in this chamber.

We commit ourselves not to betray our prayers with actions that contradict them. May we honor one another, glorify You together. And inspire our state to be better.

Amen.

Messages from the Senate

 

 

Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 26.

A concurrent resolution offered as a memorial for Dale Kildee, former member of the Michigan House of Representatives, the Michigan Senate, and the United States House of Representatives.

Whereas, It was with deep sadness that the members of the Michigan Legislature learned of the passing of Dale Kildee. Throughout his nearly fifty-year career in public service, Congressman Kildee was a tireless advocate for his constituents in Bay, Genesee, Lapeer, Oakland, Sanilac, Shiawassee, Saginaw, and Tuscola counties and all of Michigan; and

Whereas, Dale Kildee was born in Flint in 1929. After graduating from St. Mary痴 High School in 1947, he considered entering the priesthood. He earned his bachelor痴 degree from the Sacred Heart Seminary but withdrew before becoming ordained. He then earned his teaching certificate from the University of Detroit and worked as a teacher at the University of Detroit High School and Flint Central High School from 1954 to 1964. During this period, he also earned a master痴 degree from the University of Michigan, including some graduate studies at the University of Peshawar in Pakistan; and

Whereas, Dale Kildee entered public service when he was elected to the Michigan House of Representatives in 1964 to represent part of Genesee County in the 81st District. During his tenure in the House, he chaired the committee on Federal Relations; was vice chair of Public Health; and served on the committees of Judiciary, State Fairs, State Library, Appropriations, and Interstate Cooperation Commission. He served in the House until 1974, when he was elected to represent the 29th District in the Michigan Senate. In the Senate he served on the Appropriations Committee. He chaired the subcommittee on School Aid & Department of K-12; and was vice chair of the subcommittees of Joint Subcommittee on Capital Outlay and Subcommittee on Government Computers Coordinating Committee. Among his many contributions to Michigan during his time in the Legislature, Representative Kildee was a fierce advocate for Native Americans, playing a key role in creating the Michigan Commission on Indian Affairs; and

Whereas, Dale Kildee was first elected to the United States Congress in 1976 to represent the Flint-based 7th district. He was successfully reelected in each of the next seventeen elections before announcing he would not seek another term in the 2012 General Election. During his time in Congress, Congressman Kildee also represented Michigan痴 5th and 9th districts, which were also based around Flint. Throughout his tenure, Congressman Kildee was known for his dedication to his office, missing only 27 votes over his 36 years in Congress; and

Whereas, Congressman Kildee痴 experience as a teacher influenced his time in the House, as he constantly worked to improve our education system. He was the author of the Improving Head Start for School Readiness Act of 2007, which reauthorized and reformed the Head Start early education program. Congressman Kildee also continued his advocacy for Native Americans while in Congress, including forming the bipartisan Native American Caucus; and

Whereas, Dale Kildee dedicated his life to serving his constituents and advocating for those in need. He is remembered for his quiet leadership and tireless efforts to serve others as well as his love for his wife and family. His passion for public service serves as an example for all those that follow in his footsteps; 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 Dale Kildee, former member of the Michigan House of Representatives from 1965 to 1974, the Michigan Senate from 1975 to 1977, and the United States House of Representatives from 1977 to 2012; and be it further

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

The Senate has adopted the concurrent resolution.

The question being on the adoption of the concurrent resolution,

The concurrent resolution was adopted by unanimous standing vote.

Motions and Resolutions

 

 

Reps. Witwer, Steckloff, Pohutsky, Garza, Shannon, Scott, Breen, Coleman, Tate, Neeley, Sowerby, Bezotte, Haadsma, Morse and Rogers offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 276.

A resolution to declare May 1-7, 2022, as Tardive Dyskinesia Awareness Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Many people with serious, chronic mental illness, such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, severe depression, or gastrointestinal disorders, including gastroparesis, nausea, and vomiting require treatment with medications that work as dopamine receptor blocking agents (DRBAs), including antipsychotics; and,

Whereas, While ongoing treatment with these medications can be very helpful, and even lifesaving, for many people, it can also lead to tardive dyskinesia (TD); and

Whereas, Tardive dyskinesia is a movement disorder that is characterized by random, involuntary, and uncontrolled movements of different muscles in the face, trunk and extremities. In some cases, people may experience movement of the arms, legs, fingers, and toes. In other cases, symptoms may include swaying movements of the trunk or hips which may impact the muscles associated with walking, speech, eating and breathing; and

Whereas, Tardive dyskinesia can develop months, years, or decades after a person starts taking DRBAs and even after they have discontinued use of those medications. Not everyone who takes a DRBA develops TD, but if it develops it is often permanent; and

Whereas, Common risk factors for tardive dyskinesia include advanced age and alcoholism or other substance abuse disorders. Postmenopausal women and people with a mood disorder are also higher risk of developing tardive dyskinesia; and

Whereas, A person is at higher risk for TD after taking DRBAs for three months or longer, but the longer the person is on these medications, the higher the risk of developing tardive dyskinesia; and

Whereas, Studies suggest that overall risk of developing tardive dyskinesia is between 10 and 30 percent; and

Whereas, It is estimated that over 600,000 Americans suffer from tardive dyskinesia. According to the National Alliance for Mental Illness, one in every four patients receiving long-term treatment with an antipsychotic medication will experience tardive dyskinesia; and

Whereas, Years of difficult and challenging research have resulted in recent scientific breakthroughs, with two new treatments for tardive dyskinesia approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration; and

Whereas, Tardive dyskinesia is often unrecognized and patients suffering from the illness are commonly misdiagnosed. Regular screening for TD in patients taking DRBA medications is recommended by the American Psychiatric Association (APA); and

Whereas, Patients suffering from tardive dyskinesia often face negative stigma, which can worsen mental health symptoms and cause embarrassment and withdrawal from society as the disease progresses; and

Whereas, Caregivers of patients with tardive dyskinesia face many challenges and are often responsible for the overall care of the TD patient; and

Whereas, We can raise awareness of tardive dyskinesia in the public and medical community: now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare May 1-7, 2022, as Tardive Dyskinesia Awareness Week in the state of Michigan. We encourage each individual in the United States to become better informed about and aware of tardive dyskinesia.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.
