EXECUTIVE ORDER

No. 2022-3

 

Declaration of State of Emergency

 

On May 11, 2022, parts of Northern Michigan were hit by a significant weather system. The City of Big Rapids, located in Mecosta County, was inundated with four-and-a-half inches of rain within a two-hour period, causing localized flooding and damage to roads, bridges, and the campus of Ferris State University. Mecosta County declared a local state of emergency on May 12.

Local officials took several actions to respond to the situation, including but not limited to activating the disaster or emergency response and recovery aspects of their emergency operations plans and issuing emergency public information. Despite local response efforts, the City of Big Rapids experienced significant infrastructure damage, including two culverts that need repairs because of washout and slope erosion, one bridge that requires debris removal, one bridge that needs replacement, and one street that collapsed and must be repaired. In addition, the campus of Ferris State University incurred substantial clean-up costs. State assistance and other outside resources are necessary to effectively respond to and recover from the impacts of this emergency, protect public health, safety, and property, and lessen or avert the threat of more severe and lasting harm.

Section 1 of article 5 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963 vests the executive power of the State of Michigan in the governor. Under the Emergency Management Act, 1976 PA 390, as amended, MCL 30.403(4), 甜t]he governor shall, by executive order or proclamation, declare a state of emergency if he or she finds that an emergency has occurred or that the threat of an emergency exists.

Therefore, acting under the Michigan Constitution of 1963 and Michigan law, including the Emergency Management Act, 1976 PA 390, as amended, MCL 30.401 to 30.421, I order the following:

1. A state of emergency is declared for Mecosta County.

2. The Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division of the Department of State Police shall coordinate and maximize all state efforts and may call upon all state departments to utilize available resources to assist in the designated area pursuant to the Michigan Emergency Management Plan.

3. The state of emergency is terminated at such time as the threats to public health, safety, and property caused by the emergency no longer exist, and appropriate programs have been implemented to recover from the effects of this emergency, but in no case later than July 22, unless extended as provided by the Emergency Management Act.

 

Date: June 24, 2022

By the Governor:

Jocelyn Benson

Secretary of State

The executive order was referred to the Committee on Government Operations.

Recess

 

 

Senator Lauwers moved that the Senate recess subject to the call of the Chair.

The motion prevailed, the time being 10:05 a.m.

 

11:59 a.m.

 

The Senate was called to order by the President pro tempore, Senator Nesbitt.

 

During the recess, Senators Santana and Ananich entered the Senate Chamber.

 

By unanimous consent the Senate proceeded to the order of

Statements

 

 

Senators Moss, Wozniak, Hollier, Bayer and McBroom asked and were granted unanimous consent to make statements and moved that the statements be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Moss statement is as follows:

As Roe v. Wade fell last Friday, I watched many celebrate this decision as a win for those upholding their religious values. But we are a country in which no one religion has a monopoly on public policy. That is not just my assessment葉hat is enshrined by our Founding Fathers in our Constitution and indeed in the Constitution of the state of Michigan.

This decision is also an affront to those of us who practice our deeply-held religious beliefs. I hear a lot about Judeo-Christian values with 笛udeo often getting discarded. My rabbi wrote a letter to our synagogue congregation, and I壇 like to read an excerpt from it,

 

Our tradition believes in the preciousness of life and takes potential life very seriously. However, Jewish tradition identifies the time of birth, rather than conception, as the moment when potential life takes on the status of a full human being. While this concept has far-reaching consequences for a variety of ethical decisions, it certainly means that there is room within Jewish conversations for the permissibility of abortion. In cases where the life of the mother is at risk, Jewish law not only permits abortion, it requires it in some cases. I壇 also add that many rabbinic decisors of Jewish law also permit abortion to alleviate psychological and economic distress as well as permitting abortion when it has been determined that the fetus will be born with significant birth defects.

We can have further conversations about what is and what is not permitted according to Jewish tradition. However, today it is important to point out that last week痴 Supreme Court decision makes it clear that Jewish women in many places in the country will be unable to act on any conversation or decision that they make because abortion will be illegal in their state. Not to put too fine a point on it, this means that the decision that states make to outlaw abortion makes it impossible for Jews to follow Jewish tradition on this issue. This makes this an issue of the religious freedom in our country.

 

The fall of Roe is not a win for those who practice religion. It is only a win for those who want to impose their religion on everybody else.

 

Senator Wozniak痴 statement is as follows:

Today I have two very promising summer interns in the east Gallery憂osh Leppien and Jake Weber. Both of you guys can stand up.

Josh is a senior at Villanova University where he is completing his undergraduate degree in political science and public administration and looks forward to obtaining a master痴 degree before pursuing a career in the Foreign Service.

Jake is from my hometown of Shelby Township and is a proud graduate of Western Michigan University where he studied political science and communications. Following the completion of his internship, he intends to begin a career in the Legislature.

Please join me in welcoming Josh and Jake to the Michigan Senate.

 

Senator Hollier痴 statement is as follows:

On December 9, 2017, I woke up to my wife bleeding out. It was literally the scariest moment that anyone can have. They always tell first-time dads, You don稚 need to worry about getting to the hospital, all you do is plan the fastest route and think about it, but really you池e just going to get to the hospital and wait. But I was going 90-plus miles per hour to the hospital預 Catholic hospital, mind you. It was scary, and when I arrived my wife was quickly wheeled back because she was bleeding out into an emergency surgery and the first thing the doctor told me when my wife and daughter came back was how lucky I was because there was a moment I could have lost one or both of them, that if I had been a couple minutes slower, if we had had a different doctor, we would be having a different conversation in that moment. I知 still super happy because they were both OK. It was the most relieving message I had ever had, but when they rolled my wife out, I didn稚 know if I was going to see her again. The nurse told me to think about it, told me to think about whether our goal was to save my daughter Lily謡hom we had named and who we love and we were so committed to having because we decided to have her熔r the wife I had married, the woman I had chosen to live the rest of my life with, the person who completes me in every one of these spaces.

But that痴 not a decision that families are going to be able to make under the Dobbs decision. We致e seen the largest hospital in this state say that decisions like the one I may have had to make would no longer be done by families, by mothers, by fathers, but by attorneys in rooms worried about being sued or the details of law, not about care. This decision should be made by your wife, by your girlfriend, by your mom, by your sister, not somebody in a back room.

What constitutes life or death預nd really death擁s something that doctor or that nurse practitioner should be deciding in real time. I know too many friends like my wife and I who had high-risk pregnancies, who in those moments had to make really difficult decisions. Far too many people you know and love have had to make a decision to have a medically-induced miscarriage for the viability of their spouse, their girlfriend, your sister, your niece, your family, my family. Those are decisions that people are no longer going to be able to make. And that痴 not OK.

Let me be clear and let me say strongly and unabashedly葉hat I support a woman痴 right to choose, because I believe in her body agency and them and people who can become pregnant痴 ability to determine when and if they should be pregnant. This something men have to stand up and do. I say that as a Black man who for the majority of the last two years has had to come up and step up and say, Please stand with me. I have colleagues on both sides洋en, women; Black, white; Latino, South Asian謡ho have stepped up and said that Black people痴 issues matter, that they stand with us on a variety of issues and have introduced reforms. These are not partisan issues; these are people issues, and men have got to step up and say that women痴 issues are men痴 issues.

I extend that sense of allyship with my colleague from the 13th District when at a rally this past Friday someone預 Black man, mind you耀tood up to shout her down, and I stepped in, not to seek the stage, not to talk, but to have a side conversation to ensure that her voice was heard because in these moments too often, the voices of people who can become pregnant are not being listened to, are not being heard, and when we池e really an ally, we highlight those voices. We do everything we can to ensure that people hear them and the things that matter most in these moments.

I stand here speaking up because I stand with people who can be pregnant, to help them make the decisions that they need and that matter most to them because having a child is a deeply personal decision, something that should be determined by the people who love each other and are excited about bringing a life into this world, not by some attorney in a back room, not by someone who is not a medical professional, but most importantly, not by someone who is going to have to carry a child and deal with the impact for the rest of their lives.

 

Senator Bayer痴 statement is as follows:

When the women in our lives have to make hard decisions, it is our job to listen with compassion and to support her in making the decision that she knows is best for herself, with caring, without judgement. Many years ago, you know I had to end a very-much-wanted pregnancy due to a devastating diagnosis. I am so thankful that I had the support of my husband, my parents, and my entire family. If I hadn稚 been able to make this decision I would have died, and no miracle of modern medicine could have changed that or would have saved that baby no matter what I decided. But, that痴 no one痴 business except mine and my husband痴.

My heart aches for everyone who has been in a similar situation. That痴 why I support the freedom for all women to decide what is best for themselves and their families庸or my daughter, my nieces, and for the next generation of women. I want all of us to have the same freedoms that we致e marched for, that we致e had for the last 50 years.

When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, we柚ichigan傭ecame one of a handful of states that could revert to an archaic relic of a law. We just can稚 go back to the outdated thinking of 1931. We致e moved forward. We know that one-size-fits-all does not fit. Decisions like this should be a conversation between you and your doctor. We have the bills in place. We have the solution ready to go, that the majority of Michiganders傭y far, the majority of Michiganders預gree with.

It痴 my hope that we can work together on this issue, because no matter what our differences, abortion is healthcare.

 

Senator McBroom痴 statement is as follows:

Mr. President, at the founding of our nation用articularly at the framing of our Constitution耀lavery was seen as an incongruous blemish on the nation, but how to end it was not easily answered. Huge sums of money were tied up in the people considered property, businesses and industry depended on it, loans were collateralized with it, and society was structured around it. Jefferson himself described it as having a wolf by the ears. So, the Founders compromised and created a plan that we would wean the nation off of it預fter all, they thought it was unlikely to be viable long-term. This, of course, did not work due to several factors, not the least of which was racism. Many folks, removed from the viewing of the abomination of slavery in the eventually-freed North, casually opposed slavery but were unmotivated to act on it personally or politically.

Then, John C. Calhoun of South Carolina changed the whole paradigm by declaring that slavery was a moral good, a noble institution, and a service to the African people. Suddenly, good people were confronted with their moral laziness regarding slavery and abolition became imperative to many; so much so that it became a litmus test for candidates, parties, clergy, journalists, and even families. We know what happened next. I encourage you to read John F. Kennedy痴 amazing book Profiles in Courage to learn more about the political battles in the Senate that arose over the issue.

Why bring this up now? I believe the parallels with the present debate on abortion merit this. Just a few years ago, abortion was largely panned by many as an unfortunate but occasionally necessary option. Joe Biden said he believed every abortion was a tragedy. Bill Clinton sadly but firmly declared that it was needed to be safe, legal, and rare. But in the last 10 to 15 years, that paradigm has taken a dramatic John C. Calhoun shift, even here in this chamber. We致e heard that abortion is a good thing洋oral, and should be celebrated. The consequences of that shift are also comparable. Many who easily tolerated abortion have been shaken to their core. They致e had to face and evaluate whether their opposition is merited or not, and if it is can they live honestly without actively opposing it. The answer for many is emphatically, No, this cannot be justified or tolerated.

As I致e said here before, come, let us reason together. Advocates contend that those opposing abortion cannot speak because they aren稚 women. This is nonsense because what is wrong and what is right is never contingent on who is speaking. It was not, thankfully, only slaves who spoke to the immorality and injustice of slavery. It also ignores the rights of others involved in the pregnancy葉he father. It treats all women as monolithic and ignores that women overwhelmingly lead the cause for pro-life and it disregards the very life of the unborn. This Calhoun paradigm shift is so shocking that people are actually testifying that some of those now living ought to have been aborted, that the autonomy of one person is more important than defining the difference of a baby ten seconds before delivery versus ten seconds after delivery. Here and everywhere, we heard repeatedly the cognitive dissonance of those celebrating the lives they themselves birthed容ven speaking of it as life prior to delivery謡hile incoherently declaring the disposability of the exact same situation when it痴 not wanted.

Come, let us reason together. What sets apart those who have the right to live? If it痴 only by the consent of others, then we are in serious jeopardy. Some say dependent sets the unborn apart, but is ten minutes less dependent? Trust me, 10 year olds are dependent, 30 year olds can be dependent, 100 year olds can be dependent. It can稚 be based on that. And it can稚 be based on the idea that it痴 a tumor or an unwanted growth. A baby has its own DNA, its own blood type; it痴 undeniably its own human being傭reathing, growing, a distinguishable individual. And it can稚 be on circumstances. American slavery was repugnant whether the master was kind or not, whether the options for the slave outside of slavery were good or not耀o some claimed, but it痴 obviously untrue and offensive.

Mr. President, I致e run out of time to finish, but the tragedy of abortion continues. Let痴 stand for life and let痴 recognize those in tragedy who need help.

It is my pleasure to spend a few moments talking about a work relationship with a professional who has been near and dear to me and my staff and our chamber for five and a half years now, and someone who曜ust say 渡o迫someone who will have left and is leaving a lasting deep impression upon me.

We have a tribute here for Sarah Kissling, recognizing her service in the Senate and the fact that she痴 leaving to go to work for the Secretary of the Senate, Margaret O達rien. The fact of the matter is she痴 not going far, but sometimes distance isn稚 measured by physical distance. It痴 also measured in where your heart is, where your mind is, and so forth. I know that with Sarah痴 passion and with her commitment to professional expertise and work ethic, that she would pour everything she can into serving as the internal affairs person for the Secretary of the Senate.

I知 not going to read this tribute洋ost of you know that I don稚 read these tributes傭ut I did ask for a list of the adjectives that were used and referenced in the tribute, and they are as follows: steadfast, responsible, patient, empathetic, caring, authentic, devout, helpful, professional, very faithful, a point person, and a guiding light. I could talk for minutes if not longer on each one of those characteristics. They池e fairly well-identified in this tribute, but what I壇 rather focus on for the next couple minutes is what痴 missing in that list of adjectives.

The first thing that痴 missing is a mistake made by those who were putting those adjectives together because they forgot one word on the tribute, and that痴 exemplary. Sarah, you represent every definition of exemplary when it comes to serving whomever you池e working for, but especially the last few years when you and I have worked so closely together. You are an exemplary person.

Another attribute, another adjective, that痴 missing is loving. Sarah, you are, in my mind, one of the most obvious embodiments of a person trying to live a Christ-centered life that I致e ever met. That doesn稚 mean you池e perfect, but it means you池e getting more perfect every day. What a delight to work with somebody that close who can help gravitationally pull me back to where I need to be when I知 off-center. That痴 precisely what you致e done for me over and over and over again.

Instinctive. I致e never worked with anybody who was able to give me words, phrases, songs, you name it, at just exactly the time I needed them, and I didn稚 know when they were coming, in some cases I didn稚 even know why they were until after the fact. That instinct, dear, is unique in you and very special.

Gifted. One of the things I am just completely amazed at is the days I walk in and you値l say, Mike, so‑and‑so needs a little attention today. She has this both instinct and gift to know who needs attention and why, and provides me just enough lead to help maybe fill that hole or fill that gap. I知 looking around this room and there are many of you葉alking primarily colleagues謡ho Sarah has said to me in the morning, You know, Jim needs a little TLC today, or Kevin needs a little TLC today, or Mike needs a little TLC today. It痴 a special, special gift. That instinctive and gifted attribute will serve you perfectly in an internal affairs role with the Secretary of State容xcuse me, the Secretary of the Senate.

Another adjective is lasting. Anybody who痴 had the privilege to work even remotely close to you I guarantee you致e left an impression upon them洋ostly good. Tough. You take a look at this and you think, Well, that痴 a nice person to work with, but I know the other side and I know how tough she can be and in every case, it was appropriately tough. Another adjective I find very interesting, especially for where you池e going, is you are loud. Now, I can only imagine when you combine Sarah Kissling and Secretary O達rien in the same group, I知 thinking MIOSHA痴 rules on noise control are going to be seriously challenged on a regular basis.

Next to last, anybody who has had the chance to work with and around you leaves feeling like they池e a winner and there痴 nothing that embodies a winner in my mind better than wearing a green jacket. I wore this green jacket today because I am nothing but a winner having had worked with you as closely as I have over these years.

Lastly, the adjective missing on this list預nd I just can稚 believe it痴 missing擁s heart. I have not worked with anybody who has a heart as big as you do, who has the passion and compassion and patience, understanding, instincts, gratefulness, as you do.

For all these reasons, I would ask my colleagues to join me in sending not too far a very special colleague who I知 going to miss dearly in the short-term because she痴 not working in our office anymore, but in the long-term because I値l be going to the next station in life. Sarah, God bless you, thank you for all you致e done, and thank you for the impression you致e made upon me and others in your circles. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are going to be exceedingly successful and pricelessly valuable to this institution going forward. God bless you.

Department of State Police

June 30, 2022

I am pleased to present to the Michigan Legislature the 29th annual Asset Forfeiture Report. Michigan痴 asset forfeiture laws provide for the seizure of cash and property assets of drug traffickers and other criminal organizations when that property is obtained through illegal activity. The report this year is submitted under the Uniform Forfeiture Reporting Act, Public Act (PA) 148 of 2015, and the conviction requirements of PA 7 and PA 9 of 2019.

PA 148 added reporting requirements and submission of a summary to the Michigan Department of State Police of the reporting agency痴 activities regarding forfeiture of property under four sections of law: Public Health Code, MCL 333.7521-MCL 333.7533 (Controlled Substances); the Identity Theft Protection Act, MCL 445.79d; Revised Judicature Act of 1961, MCL 600.4701-600.4709 (Omnibus); and Revised Judicature Act of 1961, MCL 600.3801-600.3840 (Public Nuisance). Additionally, the type of information to be reported for each seizure and forfeiture of property was expanded to provide for greater transparency regarding the government seizure of private property.

Effective August 7, 2019, a criminal conviction became required before certain property seized under the Public Health Code can be forfeited to law enforcement.

This report covers the period from January 1, 2021, through December 31, 2021. This is the fourth report in which all reporting agencies submitted forfeiture data based upon the calendar year. Over $12 million in cash and assets amassed by drug traffickers was forfeited. Asset forfeiture funds were utilized to support law enforcement by providing resources for equipment, personnel, vehicles, training, and supplies. Assets seized pursuant to this program also allowed some agencies to contribute monies to non-profit organizations that assist in obtaining information from citizens for solving crimes.

I submit this report for your information and review.

Sincerely,

Joseph M. Gasper

Director

Senator Daley痴 statement is as follows:

I would ask you to join me in supporting Senate Bill No. 814 today. There痴 a push in this country to go to electric vehicles. We aren稚 going to be able to do that overnight. If you haven稚 filled up your gas tank lately, you致e noticed $5-plus for gasoline. We have a chance with this legislation to lower that price by about 27 cents per gallon. It痴 good legislation. It痴 fully renewable fuel. A recent Harvard study shows significant environmental benefits to ethanol over gasoline. This is good for Michigan agriculture, very good for our rural communities, and I urge a 土es vote on Senate Bill No. 814.

The President pro tempore, Senator Nesbitt, resumed the Chair.

 

The concurrent resolution was adopted.

 

 

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Hollier痴 statement is as follows:

Today I rise because we池e taking a major step to ensure that when people go to our nation痴 Capitol, for the first time they see a Black man in our National Statuary Hall. Michigan has always been a leader預 leader in civil rights預nd we are taking a huge step to do that. This is something that I知 incredibly grateful for because for the entirety of our state痴 tradition Republicans choose the Republican, Democrats choose the Democrat. Recently President Gerald Ford replaced Zachariah Chandler, former mayor of the city of Detroit, and we are going to replace former Territorial Governor and Secretary Lewis Cass with Mayor Coleman Young, someone I知 deeply proud of because so many people who I represent are only here because of him.

Mayor Young once said, 展e need to dream big dreams, propose grandiose means if we are to recapture the excitement, the vibrancy, and pride we once had. Mayor Young was an optimist. He had a dogged sense of realism. He was somebody who had spent his entire career fighting for freedom, fighting for people, and fighting for his constituents. And for anybody who knew him, he could be a polarizing figure like so many great people were in their times, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Cesar Chavez, and Abraham Lincoln. All men that in their time were viewed differently than they are today. I say that because the Detroit Free Press has recently ranked the greatest mayors of the city of Detroit and Mayor Young is routinely at the top of that list because of庸or all things揺is fiscal conservancy. He made really important decisions at the time that he led the sixth-largest city in the country to ensure that its financial stability was able to exist.

Coleman Young was a transformational mayor in the city of Detroit, but before that he was a Tuskegee Airman. He was called before the House Un-American Activities Committee and boldly pushed back in a time where so few people were willing, one, to show up, and two, to speak about the truth of that time. And in the moment, he was proud and bold. As we look back at the people who were proud enough to step up and speak truth in those hearings, we think about them as national heroes, which is something that we are doing today.

He was an advocate of police reform in a time that it meant so much. As a matter of fact, the day that Mayor Young was elected, my dad was pulled over by one of the S.T.R.E.S.S. units that he sought to close down. A police officer held a gun to his head and said, I bet you池e real excited today aren稚 you? Those were the kinds of things that he changed. He was a proponent of the UAW and an ardent supporter of domestic manufacturing.

Today痴 movement is not about tearing down a statue, but it is about replacing and changing who we send to D.C. Right now we have Lewis Cass who was the Territorial Governor of Michigan and the Secretary of War under Andrew Jackson. He led President Jackson痴 Indian removal program, something that was especially personal to me because my grandmother痴 grandmother walked from Alabama to Oklahoma during the Trail of Tears. Secretary Cass was an ardent supporter of popular sovereignty; the idea that we should continue slavery across states, noting that Michigan and the city of Detroit was the end of the Underground Railroad and made an opportunity for people to find freedom.

I think I would be remiss if I didn稚 recognize how memorable this day is on another account, because it痴 also the day that the first Black woman was sworn in as a member of the Supreme Court. And today, we are replacing someone who was an ardent supporter of slavery with someone who was unapologetically Black, on the same day that Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson was sworn in as the first Black woman on the Supreme Court. Michigan continues to be a leader and I知 so grateful that this body is united in doing so.

 

 

Senator Bumstead offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 161.

A resolution to designate July 2022 as Michigan Wildlife Conservation Month.

Whereas, Michigan痴 natural beauty, abundant wildlife, and plentiful waters are enjoyed from Belle Isle to Baraga by millions of residents and visitors and should be preserved and protected for future generations; and

Whereas, Hunters and anglers were among the first conservationists, pushing for active wildlife management and conservation to ensure wildlife continues to flourish; and

Whereas, Science-based wildlife management and conservation decisions such as actively enhancing habitat, monitoring wildlife populations, preventing the spread of disease, and regulating hunting and fishing seasons help balance our use of natural resources with the needs of Michigan痴 wildlife; and

Whereas, As a result of these protections, regulations, and extensive conservation efforts, Michigan populations of white-tailed deer, grouse, Kirtland痴 Warbler, and many other species have rebounded from near extirpation; and

Whereas, Michigan has approximately 11,000 inland lakes and 76,000 miles of rivers and streams which provide abundant wildlife habitat; and

Whereas, July 1, 2022, marks the 84th anniversary of the effective date for the Pittman-Robertson Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act, which provides funding for wildlife management projects across the nation through the purchase of hunting equipment; and

Whereas, Hunting and fishing licenses provide tens of millions of dollars each year for wildlife conservation; and

Whereas, Annually, hunters and anglers contribute $11.2 billion to Michigan痴 economy and create 171,000 jobs, making these activities one of the state痴 top ten job-creating industries, according to a recent study by the Michigan United Conservation Clubs; and

Whereas, This year is also the ninth anniversary of the creation of the Michigan Wildlife Council, a bipartisan-approved panel entrusted with educating the public about the importance of wildlife management in preserving Michigan痴 outdoor heritage for future generations; and

Whereas, In large part because of the council痴 activities, more Michiganders than ever before are aware of the essential role hunting and fishing play in conserving, managing, and protecting Michigan痴 wildlife; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That the members of this legislative body designate July 2022 as Michigan Wildlife Conservation Month.

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

Senator Lauwers moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The resolution was adopted.

Senator Chang was named co-sponsor of the resolution.

 

 

Senator Lauwers moved that the Senate proceed to consideration of the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 150

The motion prevailed.

 

 

Senate Resolution No. 150.

A resolution to oppose the designation of additional national wilderness areas in Michigan痴 Upper Peninsula.

(This resolution was reported by the Committee on Natural Resources without amendment on Wednesday, June 15. See Senate Journal No. 58, p. 963)

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Senators Irwin, McBroom and Bayer asked and were granted unanimous consent to make statements and moved that the statements be printed in the Journal.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Irwin痴 statement is as follows:

Today here in the state of Michigan where we enjoy the largest inventory of public land east of the Mississippi, we are enjoying the legacy of decisions that were made generations ago. People who never met any of us decided through their great wisdom to set aside land for the public to enjoy, and now today as a result in Michigan, 63 percent of our residents participate in outdoor recreation each year. Outdoor recreation generates $26.6 billion in consumer spending and supports 230,000-plus direct jobs here in the state of Michigan. Michigan ranks first among Great Lakes states for jobs created from hunting- and fishing-related purchases, totaling over $11 billion annually. So, when leaders generations ago made wise choices to set aside special places to remain as pristine assets for all citizens to enjoy forever, that was a wise decision.

That is why I rise to offer an objection to this resolution, because I believe here in the state of Michigan we should be identifying more of these special and pristine lands, and we can do so while we respect the industries that thrive off of extracting resources from some of our public lands. But we don稚 have to open every single corner of our public lands to that kind of extraction. We can preserve some of those lands for these other opportunities that serve the recreational interest and that serve the business and economic interests of other Michiganders.

That痴 why I rise today to offer these thoughts, because I think our public lands can be an asset to all of us across the state of Michigan. I hope we can continue to work together on identifying some of these very special places and making sure they池e protected for future generations揚enerations that none of us will ever meet but that we can do something to support.

 

Senator McBroom痴 statement is as follows:

I壇 like to speak in support of my resolution, particularly to note some of what has been said and what has been pushed onto your desks. This area is already a noted protected area. This area is federal forest. This area is already receiving protections. It痴 already receiving visitors. But it痴 not wilderness, and to designate it wilderness is not really an honest designation. Even a few years ago, the United States federal government said that this land was not suitable for the wilderness designation. Why is it being pushed on us? Why is this group receiving a large amount of its funding from outside the state of Michigan pushing to have this land declared to be wilderness? It痴 not virgin timber, it痴 not somehow land that hasn稚 been managed in the past, and yet you値l see right within the push to do this, We need to protect the wonderful biodiversity and animals and opportunities that are there.

Yet, those items are already there under the current system, so how are we enhancing this by changing this designation? What we do is lose the opportunity to manage it as well as we池e doing right now. We lose the opportunity to manage the forest through commercial enterprise, something that痴 not just good for the forest but good for the economy of the Upper Peninsula. Instead, you get a letter here that says, Well, logging and mining are receding industries so we should do this instead. Maybe those industries are receding because people like this continue to make it more and more difficult for those industries to continue.

Come to some of my communities and walk into one of the old high schools and look at the graduation classes and watch how they致e dropped from 150 to 100 to 70 to 50 to now in one of these towns here in this area, they池e lucky to graduate 15 people because of all of the purchase and buying up of lands and the restrictions that the feds continue to put on the federal forest land. If I could, I壇 get this out of the federal forest land already. Why put it more restrictive than it already is? It痴 going to restrict opportunity for future enjoyment of building different trails and other opportunities as well. It値l only allow status quo, and when I met with these groups to discuss this issue, they made it very clear that the only significant difference that would happen in their minds in this designation is going from hardly ever cutting trees to never cutting trees, and that痴 just not acceptable for the people of the Upper Peninsula who continue to need resource-based economics in order to let our communities survive.

I encourage you to vote 土es.

 

Senator Bayer痴 statement is as follows:

Obviously we熔ur Michigan residents預ll value protecting our natural places as best we can forever and that is what this is about. Looking to the future as our colleague mentioned already. Once we let go of that, it痴 really hard to get it back. It can damage things permanently. We do value the beauty, the naturalness, the conservation of wildlife habitats, the diversity of living things, and for recreation as well.

This is really important to our economy, for our tourism, the fact that we can build out揚o camping, we can go hiking, we can do stargazing, my favorite thing is snowshoeing in the Upper Peninsula, hunting, fishing謡e use these recreation areas. We use these wilderness areas. They are an attraction and a huge economic opportunity to the state and the Upper Peninsula. People come here from thousands of miles away to visit. We can definitely use that for economic development.

We also see people moving to Michigan more and more because of our natural beauty, because of the condition of the state and the places we protect. This is very important for the future, for the future of the state, for our kids future generations, that we maintain as much as possible before it痴 too late.

 

 

Senator Hollier offered the following resolution:

Senate Resolution No. 162.

A resolution to strongly urge the United States Air Force to replace the fleet of A-10 Thunderbolt Attack Fighters at Selfridge Air National Guard Base with an advanced generation fighter mission.

Whereas, Selfridge Air National Guard Base (ANGB) is intrinsically designed to meet the priorities of the 2022 National Defense Strategy. Selfridge offers an immediate fighter aircraft basing solution with existing infrastructure, manpower, and unconstrained access to advanced multi-domain training ranges. A fighter mission at Selfridge complements Michigan痴 National All Domain Warfighting Center which prepares warfighters for future conflicts against peer adversaries, and is strategically located between 42 and 48 degrees latitude. Michigan is the backstop for Defense of the Homeland and is capable of projecting power in all domains through a combat-credible force, in cooperation with allies and partners; and

Whereas, Selfridge ANGB has a long and proud history of flying fighter aircraft dating back almost 100 years. The base is home to the 127th Wing, a highly respected warfighting unit currently flying A-10s and KC-135s. The 127th Wing has been essential in providing combat air support to the Middle East in recent years; and

Whereas, Selfridge ANGB is a joint military community with existing infrastructure; efficient flight times to the largest overland airspace complex east of the Mississippi River; significant overwater and littoral training opportunities, and easy access to northern Michigan training facilities in Alpena and Grayling; and

Whereas, Selfridge ANGB is located north of Detroit on the shore of Lake Saint Clair and is in close proximity to the Detroit metropolitan area and a major airline hub. The base offers a focal point for gaining and retaining the highest quality pilots and maintenance personnel; and

Whereas, Divestment of the A-10 fleet in fiscal year 2027 will result in a loss of 21 aircraft and 611 personnel, including 246 full-time employees. This will result in a negative economic impact of about $44,520,000 annually to the State of Michigan; and

Whereas, Selfridge ANGB is a source of community pride and jobs, with a local economic benefit worth hundreds of millions of dollars to residents and businesses in several surrounding cities and townships. In addition, the base is a key component of disaster response for the entire state and a vital base for our nation痴 homeland defense; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we strongly urge the United States Air Force to replace the fleet of A‑10 Thunderbolt Attack Fighters at Selfridge Air National Guard Base with an advanced generation fighter mission; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Michigan congressional delegation and the Secretary of the Air Force.

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

Senator Lauwers moved that the rule be suspended.

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

The resolution was adopted.

Senator Wojno was named co-sponsor of the resolution.

 

 

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Hollier痴 statement is as follows:

Selfridge Air National Guard Base is one of the prides of Southeast Michigan. It is hugely important to our economy, to our national defense, and to our state. We deserve to continue to run this space.

It offers an immediate fighter aircraft basing solution with existing infrastructure, manpower, and unconstrained access to advanced multi-domain training ranges. It is really important. As we talk about the efficacy of our soldiers and the engagement that they have had in this space, it痴 critically important that we continue to maintain this facility葉his space預nd to build upon our capacity.

Selfridge base is a focal point for training and retaining the highest quality of pilots in the world, along with the men and women who maintain and fix our nation痴 attack fighters. It also has a long and proud history, dating back nearly 100 years. It痴 currently the home of the highly respected 127th Wing, which has been essential in providing combat air support in the Middle East.

If the Air Force doesn稚 continue to fund the fleet A-10 Thunderbolt Attack Fighters and continues to divest in this base, it will result in the loss of 21 aircraft and 611 personnel, including 246 full-time employees. It痴 also expected to have a negative impact of more than $44.5 million to the state of Michigan and the community.

We have got to do everything that we possibly can to continue to have an advanced combat mission here in the state of Michigan. Our Air National Guard has shown time and time again that they perform, protect, and engage in this space. We should be doing everything that we possibly can. This body, today, is sending a strong message to the Secretary of the Air Force, the Department of Defense, and anyone who has any role in ensuring that Michigan continues to have a combat wing at Selfridge Air Force Base.

Senator Ananich痴 statement is as follows:

We致e all done these before. It痴 always that combination of pride and excitement for the next opportunity, but also good memories and heartache for the person leaving. Colleagues, today I壇 like to recognize悠致e always called him Josh D., but you値l know why I call him that in about two seconds憂osh Drzewicki謡ho apparently must have been some sort of cousin of mine; with names like Ananich and Drzewicki we should have been hanging out more熔ne of our writers, as it痴 his last day with us.

Josh has been a part of the Senate Democrats communications team for five years, and is headed west soon to explore new opportunities in California. I want to make sure you follow up with me if any of my friends who I connected you with out there are helpful because, if they池e not, I知 going to chew them out.

As you may know, communications staff are often some of the most behind-the-scenes team members, but they play a critical role in helping us communicate clear messages about the work we do here in the Senate to the people we represent. Josh has been a key team member in that effort. We are going to miss his quick wit and his solid work ethic. Additionally, aside from losing a writer, he is also our team痴 authority on professional soccer. He痴 a huge Liverpool F.C. supporter, if I知 correct about that, so hopefully he will continue to keep us up-to-date from afar.

This isn稚 on here but I want to make sure I mention it. Many of you have played golf with me and you値l know that I知 not a very strong golfer, but I think it was about a year ago that Josh sent a picture悠 think it was on social media or something預nd hit a hole-in-one. Most people will spend a lifetime and never do that, and he crushed it. I think he was 14 years old and did it already. It was pretty amazing that he did it, and he did it at a challenging course.

Josh has been a tremendous member of my staff熔ur staff預nd I just wanted to publicly thank him for his service to the Senate Democrats. I hope that you will all join me in doing the same. I just want to thank you, Josh, and we wish you the best. It痴 been a pleasure having you.
