Motions and Resolutions

 

 

Reps. Steckloff, Arbit, Bezotte, Bierlein, Breen, Churches, Fitzgerald, Glanville, Haadsma, Hope, Hoskins, Morse, Schuette, Snyder, Stone and Wilson offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 78.

A resolution to declare April 16-22, 2023, as Holocaust Memorial Week in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The horrors of the Holocaust should never be forgotten. The Holocaust was the state-sponsored systematic persecution and annihilation of European Jewry by Nazi Germany and its collaborators during the years 1933 through 1945. This resulted in the extermination of six million Jews and their potential decedents. The world痴 Jewish population was reduced by one-third. Poland, home to the largest Jewish community before World War II, lost 90 percent of its Jewish population. Greece, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Lithuania, Bohemia, the Netherlands, Slovakia, and Latvia each lost more than 70 percent of their Jewish population; and

Whereas, Millions more suffered grievous oppression and death under Nazi tyranny based on their religion, including Catholic priests, Christian pastors, and Jehovah痴 Witnesses; their national origin, including Poles, Soviets, Ukrainians and Sorbs; their ethnicity and culture, including the Romani people; their political beliefs, including courageous resisters and government dissidents; their physical appearance, including those with disabilities; and their sexual orientation and gender identity; and

Whereas, The history of the Holocaust allows us to reflect on the moral and ethical responsibilities of individuals, societies, and governments. It also serves as an important reminder of what can happen when we allow bigotry, hatred, and indifference to enter and conquer our societies. It is crucial to educate all citizens about the horrors of genocide and to instill values of tolerance and acceptance in our state痴 ever-changing and diverse population; and

Whereas, The Michigan Legislature enacted PA 170 of 2016, which provided that the board of a school district or board of directors of a public school academy shall ensure that the school district痴 or public school academy痴 social studies curriculum for grades 8 to 12 includes age- and grade-appropriate instruction about genocide, including, but not limited to, the Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide; and

Whereas, PA 170 of 2016 also created the Governor痴 Council on Genocide and Holocaust Education, a temporary commission, whose tasks include identifying and notifying schools about resources for teaching about genocide and the Holocaust; and to engender and coordinate events, activities, and education that will appropriately memorialize the victims of the Holocaust, such as observance of Holocaust Remembrance Day; and

Whereas, The FBI痴 most recent report on hate crimes reveals a continued increase in anti-Semitic hate crimes in the United States; and

Whereas, Anti-Semitic incidents have touched many areas of Michigan recently, including distribution of anti-Semitic fliers in Delta Township, threats against children and security personnel at Temple Beth El in Bloomfield Township, an attack against a student痴 dorm room Mezuzah at Michigan State University, distribution of anti-Semitic fliers near the campus of University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Nazi graffiti spray painted on Temple Jacob in Marquette, and anti-Semitic posters placed upon Temple Emanuel in Grand Rapids; and

Whereas, The state of Michigan has many resources to ensure that our state痴 residents understand the implications of bias motivated violence, including the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills; and

Whereas, The Holocaust Memorial Center has educated and inspired its 65,000 annual visitors towards a collective understanding of tolerance and acceptance of the diverse beliefs in our state, country, and world; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare April 16-22, 2023, as Holocaust Memorial Week in the state of Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That in honor of the victims of the Holocaust, the survivors, and their liberators, the citizens of Michigan should reflect upon this terrible event and strive to overcome hatred and intolerance through learning and remembrance.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Reps. Roth, Alexander, Arbit, BeGole, Bezotte, Bierlein, Breen, Glanville, Haadsma, Hope, Morse and Schuette offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 79.

A resolution to declare April 2023 as Home Care Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, The people of Michigan values the rights of its citizens to live as free and independent as possible into their elder years; and

Whereas, Evidence suggests that programs that support aging at home may yield cost savings for families, government, and health systems; and

Whereas, Aging at home has been shown to have health and emotional benefits over institutional care; and

Whereas, The United States ongoing demographic shift toward an increasingly older population, along with the fact that 76 percent of Americans over age 50 wish to remain in their homes for as long as possible; and

Whereas, Professional caregivers who number nearly 4.6 million in the United States and family caregivers estimated at 44 million are lifelines to millions of Americans who need assistance with medical, personal, and end of life care; and

Whereas, Caregiving has been proclaimed the ultimate form of love and respect and as a country we should support and demonstrate our gratitude for caregivers and their role in fulfilling an individual痴 desire to remain at home; and

Whereas, Promoting aging in place may also create systemic cost savings for the Medicare and Medicaid programs since these programs pay for the majority of long-term care today; and

Whereas, Michigan could reduce its existing long-term care costs considerably by promoting aging at home with the aid of in-home personal care service providers; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare April 2023 as Home Care Awareness Month in the state of Michigan. We urge Michigan citizens to learn more about how the Home Care Association of America can help them or family members choose a provider in order to remain at home and lower the cost of care for Michigan痴 growing elderly population.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Rep. Aiyash moved that Rule 71 be suspended and the resolution be considered at this time.

The motion prevailed, 3/5 of the members present voting therefor.

 

Reps. Farhat, Arbit, Bezotte, Bierlein, Breen, Churches, Fitzgerald, Glanville, Haadsma, Hope, Hoskins, Schuette, Steele and Wilson offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 80.

A resolution to declare April 21, 2023, as Eid al-Fitr Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Eid al-Fitr, meaning 擢estival of Breaking Fast marks the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting; and

Whereas, Eid al-Fitr is an occasion for special prayer, visiting with loved ones, and giving to charity; and

Whereas, The fasting during Ramadan allows individuals to engage in solemn contemplation, and these experiences help people be more aware of the sufferings of the poor; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare April 21, 2023, as Eid al-Fitr Day in the state of Michigan.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.
