Rev. Dr. Lisa Schrott, Pastor of Presbyterian Church of Okemos in Okemos, offered the following invocation:

 

敵od of love, justice and mercy, bless those who hold office in the state of Michigan, especially these members of the House of Representatives. May they work in a spirit of wisdom, kindness, and justice. Help them use their authority to serve faithfully to promote the general welfare; and to respect those whose views differ from theirs. Give them sound judgment and integrity of heart. Lead them to do what is right in upholding the common good.

Creator God, the majesty of Your creation surrounds us in this beautiful state of Michigan. You have entrusted us to care for the land, which produces a bounty of treasures from the asparagus being harvested this spring to the cherries this summer; the apples and corn in the fall and maple syrup in the winter. We ask Your blessing on all who till the land so we may enjoy its fruits. Guide the members of the House as they seek ways to promote the health of the land, water and air.

Bless our communities, O God. Help us live as friends with our neighbors and live in peace with one another. Move every human heart, such that the barriers which divide us may crumble, divisions heal and we may live as caring communities. We lift up these prayers aloud, along with our unspoken prayers from our heart, in Your name. Amen.

Motions and Resolutions

 

 

By unanimous consent the House considered House Resolution No. 233 out of numerical order.

 

Reps. Prestin and Markkanen offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 233.

A resolution to urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to allow the state of Michigan to engage in the scientific management of the species Canis Lupus.

Whereas, Gray wolves in Michigan were classified as an endangered species by the federal government in the creation of the first endangered species list in 1967. Since their first listing, gray wolves have been federally protected under various endangered species acts, including the Endangered Species Act of 1973; and

Whereas, In response to the gray wolf痴 endangered status, recovery plans have been developed to ensure the survival of viable gray wolf populations in the conterminous United States. The 1978 and 1992 recovery plans for gray wolves in the Great Lakes area called for establishing a second population of gray wolves, in addition to the historically established gray wolf populations in Minnesota and on Isle Royale in Michigan. For removal from the federal endangered species list, the recovery plans required a viable population of 100 or 200 gray wolves to be maintained for at least five consecutive years; and

Whereas, Federal protection of the gray wolf is no longer necessary. Gray wolves have made a remarkable recovery, and the Michigan wolf population has far exceeded the recovery plan requirements. As of 2020, there are estimated to be more than 695 gray wolves in the Upper Peninsula, excluding Isle Royale. Michigan痴 population has exceeded 200 animals for more than two decades and has remained consistent, between 600 and 700 gray wolves, since 2011. Delisting is long overdue as Michigan痴 wolf population has met all federal recovery goals for delisting, both in terms of number of wolves and the stability of those numbers; and

Whereas, Going forward, Michigan is well prepared to manage gray wolves in the best interest of its residents. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has developed a sound management plan that is reviewed periodically by the Michigan Wolf Management Advisory Council. The plan was developed and updated with input by a wide range of stakeholder interests, including some 20 agencies and organizations that represented the diversity of Michigan interests in wolves. Using this plan and advice from the advisory council, the DNR continues to maintain a viable gray wolf population in Michigan, while also allowing for more flexibility when conflicts between gray wolves and other species arise; and

Whereas, The gray wolf is an apex predator with no natural enemies. Without management, its population could reach numbers that will be detrimental to other species, such as whitetail deer. Delisting the gray wolf from the federal list of endangered and threatened wildlife is necessary so that state management may be initiated; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to allow the state of Michigan to engage in the scientific management of the species Canis Lupus; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Government Operations.

 

 

By unanimous consent the House considered House Resolution No. 234 out of numerical order.

 

Reps. BeGole, Hall, Tisdel, Aragona, Neyer, St. Germaine, Fox, Cavitt, Schuette, Prestin, Kunse, Alexander, Steele, Thompson, Roth, Meerman, Bezotte, Wozniak, Phil Green, Smit, Hoadley, Jaime Greene, Beson, Markkanen and DeBoyer offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 234.

A resolution to urge the United States Secretary of State to designate drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations.

Whereas, The land and maritime borders of the United States present unique challenges and threats to the national security of the country. Michigan is on the forefront of this challenge as it maintains hundreds of miles of our international border; and

Whereas, Drug cartels engage in numerous illicit activities, including human smuggling, human trafficking, weapons trafficking, money laundering, drug smuggling, extortion, and kidnapping. These activities have breached the borders of the United States and our great state; and

Whereas, As an example of the heinous activities of drug cartels, in March 2023, south of the Texas border, one drug cartel claimed responsibility for the armed abduction and killing of American citizens who were traveling in Mexico; and

Whereas, Drug cartels have been responsible for the illegal importation and distribution of wholesale amounts of fentanyl, methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, and other illicit substances in the United States. As the quantity of drugs smuggled into the United States has increased, so too has the number of drug-related overdoses and deaths in this country; and

Whereas, During federal fiscal year 2023, United States Customs and Border Protection seized 27,000 pounds of fentanyl and millions of fentanyl pills, enough to kill every American. However, some Drug Enforcement Administration officials estimate that this amount represents a mere 10 to 15 percent of the fentanyl actually sent across the border into the United States each year; and

Whereas, Illicit drugs from foreign drug cartels have also made their appearance in Michigan. In March 2023, four kilograms of fentanyl linked to a well-known foreign drug cartel were uncovered during a traffic stop near the Village of Paw Paw. Criminal convictions have been obtained in Michigan against individuals attempting to distribute illicit drugs that were transported to our great state from foreign countries. In 2023, a string of home invasions and robberies in Oakland County were linked to transnational criminal organizations with origins in South America. During federal fiscal year 2023, the Detroit Field Office of United States Customs and Border Protection seized 7,700 pounds of drugs; and

Whereas, Drug cartels engage in the practice of human smuggling, which poses a substantial threat to the United States by creating conduits that allow contraband and persons seeking to harm the United States to clandestinely enter this country; and

Whereas, During federal fiscal year 2023, United States Border Patrol encountered 172 individuals on the terrorist watchlist between ports of entry, which is nearly double the number encountered in the previous fiscal year and more than the past six fiscal years combined; and

Whereas, Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act authorizes the United States Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury and the Attorney General, to designate an organization as a foreign terrorist organization when certain criteria are met; and

Whereas, Drug cartels meet the criteria to be designated as foreign terrorist organizations, given that they are foreign in nature, they engage in or retain the capability and intent to engage in terrorism, and they threaten the security, foreign relations, and economic interests of the United States; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge the United States Secretary of State to designate drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations; 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, the United States Secretary of State, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

Whereas, Both federal and Michigan law promise every worker the right to a safe workplace. Michigan痴 Occupational Safety and Health Act declares that all employees shall be provided safe and healthful work environments free of recognized hazards; and

Whereas, Still, workplace hazards kill and disable approximately 125,000 workers each year approximately 5,000 from traumatic injuries and an estimated 120,000 from occupational disease. The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated that there were 5,486 workplace fatalities in 2022, meaning a worker died every 96 minutes from an occupational injury; and

Whereas, The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that 139 Michigan workers lost their lives in workplace accidents in 2022. Untold more suffered disabling injuries and illnesses. As recently as March 21, 2024, a young Michigander - only 22 years old - was fatally crushed during a workplace accident; and

Whereas, Michigan痴 workforce is the backbone of this state痴 economic growth. Workers should not have to suffer workplace catastrophes, occupational-related diseases, or injuries due to dangerous work conditions. Every effort needs to be made to improve workplace health and safety conditions, to increase workplace safety standards and enforcement, and to provide hardworking Michiganders with fair and just compensations; now, therefore, be it

Whereas, Michigan痴 outstanding community colleges enroll 280,000 students and grant 19,900 degrees and 7,000 certificates each year. Fifty-two percent of students who earn bachelor痴 degrees in Michigan have completed courses at a community college; and

Whereas, Investing in community colleges helps meet the very real and immediate challenges of economic development, student achievement, and competitiveness; and

Whereas, Students of all ages and backgrounds who attend these exceptional schools receive a superb education and earn degrees, certificates, and training that help them become skilled members of a workforce that propels economic growth and encourages learning and culture; and

Whereas, The very nature of crime is anti-social, and its existence highlights opposition to the social order and the well-being of individuals and communities; and

Reps. Markkanen and Prestin offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 232.

A resolution to urge the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the Natural Resources Commission to declare the Houghton-Douglass Falls as the Houghton-Douglass Falls Veterans Scenic Site, a unit of McLain State Park.

Whereas, The Houghton-Douglass Falls, located in northern Houghton County, is Michigan痴 tallest waterfall, cascading an impressive 110 feet from top to bottom. The waterfall discharges into the scenic Hammell Creek gorge, which is flanked by high rock walls and mixed stands of cedars, spruce, and pines. In addition to being regarded as one of the state痴 most picturesque sites, the falls are also a site of state historical and cultural significance; and

Whereas, The waterfall was named in honor of Douglass Houghton, who was Michigan痴 first state geologist, and his cousin Columbus Douglass. Houghton and Douglass worked together on geologic copper and iron ore surveys and exploration of the Upper Peninsula. The waterfall was historically a popular place for locals to visit, but concerns surrounding safety and overuse eventually led to the closure of public access; and

Whereas, In 2018, a 70-acre parcel comprised of the Houghton-Douglass Falls and the surrounding land was acquired by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) with a Natural Resources Trust Fund grant. The DNR purchased the property with the intention of preserving the site痴 natural beauty and eventually reopening the site to the public as a recreational park. The previous owner, who is a Vietnam veteran, graciously agreed to sell the property to the DNR with the understanding that the site would be dedicated to all the brave and courageous individuals who have served in the military, especially those who continue to suffer from the lingering effects of their experiences. Later that year, the DNR dedicated the Houghton-Douglass Falls as a Veterans Memorial Park; and

Whereas, Michigan痴 State Parks and Scenic Areas include some of the state痴 most iconic and beautiful areas, serving to preserve and protect the state痴 most significant natural and historic resources and provide recreational opportunities for visitors. These areas help enhance the social, economic, and environmental well-being of the communities surrounding them. For these reasons and reasons stated above, the Houghton-Douglass Falls would be a valuable and worthwhile addition to Michigan痴 system of State Parks and Scenic Areas; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we urge the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the Natural Resources Commission to declare the Houghton-Douglass Falls as the Houghton-Douglass Falls Veterans Scenic Site, a unit of McLain State Park; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the Director of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the members of the Natural Resources Commission.

Whereas, The impact of Michigan Afterschool Partnership extends beyond the immediate benefits to the children, fostering stronger, more resilient communities by supporting families in their quest to provide the best possible future for their children; and

Whereas, The dedication of Michigan Afterschool Partnership to its mission has not only improved the lives of countless children and families but has also raised awareness about the importance of accessible, high-quality afterschool programs; and

Whereas, It is appropriate to recognize and celebrate the significant contributions of Michigan Afterschool Partnership to our state and its residents; now, therefore, be it
