As our photographer, Shannon has probably the most important job in this room預nd maybe the hardest, making us all look good. In all seriousness, the person standing next to me is a true artist. She has brought a new perspective to the job, both literally and figuratively. Her photos breathe life into the historic work we do every day here and she will stretch, crawl, contort, or climb in any position to get the best shot.

Her colleagues describe her as personable, positive and upbeat, very organized, and always willing to pitch in; from taking headshots to caucus photos to capturing floor speeches, visits with school groups, and even a portrait that will hang on the walls of this Capitol in perpetuity. From traveling across the state to document our work with our constituents to taking up the monumental task of reorganizing our photo archives謡hich is no small feat祐hannon has shown what it means to truly excel in this role.

Shannon, thank you for your outstanding work, for all the work that you have provided to our caucus in our efforts to better serve and communicate with our constituents. Please join me in giving Shannon a very warm sendoff.

Protests

 

 

Senators Johnson, McBroom, Bellino and Daley, under their constitutional right of protest (Art. 4, Sec. 18), protested against the passage of Senate Bill No. 463.

Senators Johnson and McBroom moved that the statements they made during the discussion of the bill be printed as their reasons for voting 渡o.

The motion prevailed.

Senator Johnson痴 statement is as follows:

Senate Bill No. 463 states that a school shall not award a high school diploma to a student unless they submit a FAFSA form or obtain a parental waiver. I do appreciate the sponsor痴 work to address concerns about this process, but I still fundamentally disagree with the premise of this bill葉hat we should tie high school graduation to whether or not a student submits a FAFSA form.

There are many reasons a student or their family may wish not to complete the form, which would only be used for financial aid consideration if they plan to obtain postsecondary education training beyond high school. My office has confirmed that even with the changes in the substitute before us, school administrators continue to have significant concerns with this legislation. Organizations expressing opposition to this bill include the Michigan Association of School Boards, the Michigan Association of Superintendents and Administrators, the Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals, the Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators, and the Michigan Elementary and Middle School Principals Association. Last month, the Michigan Board of Education unanimously passed a resolution in opposition to this bill as well.

While I appreciate the intent of the bill, again, I strongly oppose the way this bill attempts to accomplish its goal. We should not set a precedent of leveraging the issuance of a student痴 high school diploma to accomplish goals that are beyond the academic requirements for a student to graduate. Therefore, I will be voting 渡o on this bill and would urge my colleagues to do the same.

 

Senator McBroom痴 statement, in which Senators Bellino and Daley concurred, is as follows:

This bill, like so many other unnecessary obligations we are now placing on our students in this state, reeks of snobbery and elitism. It reeks of the insistence that somebody here in Lansing knows better what our students need than their own school teachers, their own administrators, and their own parents. It is incredibly unnecessary and insulting that, once again, Lansing feels necessary to go in and say, Do this too before you can graduate. How has that been working out for us? Mandatory algebra II; mandatory foreign language; mandatory this and mandatory that洋ake sure you take a civics class, make sure you do this thing over here, and what are we getting for that? We池e suddenly realizing that our kids are not well prepared. Ever since we took away the control at the local school board for the ability to set the curriculum we致e been patting ourselves on the back, Boy this is going great, except that our kids are doing worse.

And suddenly, lo and behold, we致e got a shortage of plumbers, we致e got a shortage of nurses, we致e got a shortage of electricians, we have a shortage of mechanics because we created a whole world that mandated they take something else. Now let痴 pile something else on there because we don稚 want to believe that some of our students know what they池e doing, and they池e not going to college and they don稚 need to fill out this form. Suck it up, senior, fill it out anyway, we tell them. You池e not smart enough, we know better, and maybe you値l discover that you could get a pile of money and would change your mind instead of going on the career path you want driving a log truck, milking a cow. No, take this form because maybe then you値l make a smart decision, maybe then you値l go on to a four-year degree and walk out with $100,000 of debt. Don稚 worry, college is going to be free now anyway. I ask for a 渡o vote.

 

 

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Camilleri痴 statement is as follows:

I just first want to reiterate, before I get into my regular remarks, that if someone chooses to drive a truck, become a plumber, or milk a cow, all they have to do is opt-out of this form like the bill says. I rise today in support of my bill, Senate Bill No. 463, which would add completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid預lso referred to as FAFSA預s a graduation requirement, with several key avenues for families to opt-out if they cannot or are not interested in filling out this form.

This issue is personal for me. When I was applying to colleges, the school that I wanted to attend, Kalamazoo College, seemed completely out of reach financially. I was the first in my family to go to college and everyone was understandably nervous about the price tag. My dad did not want me to go even into the application and fill it out because of the price tag itself. It wasn稚 until a counselor from K College urged me to fill out the FAFSA and followed up with me that I got my parents to consider filling it out, quote, Just to see. That was their response to me, Let痴 see what you can get. When we did, we found out that K College was the most affordable option after grants and scholarships were awarded to me. Attending that school changed the trajectory of my life in a very positive way. I do not believe that I would at this podium today if I did not go to Kalamazoo College. And it痴 scary to think that I almost didn稚 even apply because I thought it was completely out of reach.

I know my story is not unique. For so many kids across our state and across the country, the day they know they値l be attending college isn稚 the day they get it, it痴 the day they receive their financial aid award letter. Because at its core, FAFSA gives students a comprehensive picture of what痴 possible. But in 2023, only about half of our graduating seniors completed a FAFSA in Michigan, and that wasn稚 an outlier. On average, Michigan students are leaving nearly $100 million in federal aid on the table every year simply because they池e not filling out a form. Not only is this a huge waste when we know there are so many students who need that aid, it also means these students are not realizing all of the postsecondary opportunities available to them, including two- and four-year colleges and many trade schools様et痴 be clear about that, trade schools also accept the FAFSA and you can also receive a Pell Grant to go to a trade school. Using the FAFSA, I was able to see what was possible for me and I know that that can happen for so many other kids, but without making this a graduation requirement and really forcing the conversation in our schools statewide, I believe we will continue to struggle with FAFSA completion and postsecondary attainment.

Michigan would also be far from the first state to do this. Over the past decade, 12 states傭oth Republican and Democratic揺ave adopted universal FAFSA policies so far, including Louisiana, Illinois, Alabama, Texas, California, Maryland, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Indiana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Kansas. They致e all done it, and others are working on it too. When similar legislation has been passed in other states, it has been shown to improve FAFSA completion rates without harming graduation rates, not to mention that Michigan痴 legislation would be the most comprehensive in terms of allowing opt-outs and exemptions to make sure we池e not holding any students back when completing the FAFSA if it is not right for them or their family. In Louisiana, the first class to graduate after passing FAFSA completion legislation had the highest four-year graduation rate in state history, with more graduates achieving college credits and industry-recognized credentials than ever before.

In addition, the graduation rate for African American students rose above the national average, and the state also saw the highest graduation rates for low-income students and students with disabilities in their history. The reality is that until we take this bold step, Michigan students will continue to miss out on millions in financial aid and fail to realize all the options available to them. We owe it to them to do better.

This is a bill simply about allowing our kids to see what is possible for them to achieve their dreams, no matter what that pathway is. Until we tell our students that they have a chance to go to two- or four-year or trade school opportunities post-high school, they池e not going to believe it痴 possible for them. This bill unlocks that opportunity. Thank you, Madam President, and I urge a 土es vote.

Pursuant to Joint Rule 20, the full title of the act shall be inserted to read as follows:

鄭n act to reorganize, consolidate, and add to the election laws; to provide for election officials and prescribe their powers and duties; to prescribe the powers and duties of certain state departments, state agencies, and state and local officials and employees; to provide for the nomination and election of candidates for public office; to provide for the resignation, removal, and recall of certain public officers; to provide for the filling of vacancies in public office; to provide for and regulate primaries and elections; to provide for the purity of elections; to guard against the abuse of the elective franchise; to define violations of this act; to provide appropriations; to prescribe penalties and provide remedies; and to repeal certain acts and all other acts inconsistent with this act,

The Senate agreed to the full title.

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Moss statement is as follows:

Collectively, these bills make the process for U.S. citizens in Michigan to register to vote here easier while making the security of our system stronger. Currently, Michigan law requires that Secretary of State branch offices ensure that when a citizen in Michigan applies for or updates their driver痴 license or personal ID card, they are offered the opportunity to register to vote at that time.

House Bill Nos. 4983 through 4986 securely streamline automatic voter registration for citizens who make a transaction at a branch office or another state agency, like when a citizen applies for Medicaid. This automatic voter registration process outlined in these bills will address these gaps in the current system to reach more interested qualified voters. It would empower thousands of voters that Michigan痴 current automatic voter registration system excludes, including young individuals who received a driver痴 license before they turned 18. That痴 House Bill No. 4569. It follows a model used by 15 other states and Washington, D.C. to allow citizens here in Michigan to pre-register to vote starting at the age of 16 with proof of their U.S. citizenship, and to become qualified voters on their 18th birthday.

Additionally, my Senate Bill No. 594 expands our current online voter registration system that currently allows applicants to register to vote electronically through the Secretary of State痴 website and update their voter registration address in Michigan with their driver痴 license or state ID. My bill adds to the list of identification options to also include the last four digits of a valid Social Security number for the applicant which is currently allowable to register to vote in person and now will be included in the online process. The Secretary of State will verify this information with the department and the United States Social Security Administration.

Ultimately, this package of bills builds upon our current system that allows citizens to register to vote automatically in-person at branch offices and electronically through the Secretary of State痴 website. Both provide secure procedures to authenticate applicants identities throughout these processes. This is Michigan痴 crucial next step in providing security and accessibility to those who want to register to vote, fulfilling our goals to increase access to voting and reduce barriers to the ballot box.

Programs for pupils with emotional impairment housed in buildings that do not serve regular education pupils also qualify. Unless otherwise approved by the department, a center program either serves all constituent districts within an intermediate district or serves several districts with less than 50% of the pupils residing in the operating district. In addition, special education center program pupils placed part-time in noncenter programs to comply with the least restrictive environment provisions of section 1412 of the individuals with disabilities education act, 20 USC 1412, may be considered center program pupils for pupil accounting purposes for the time scheduled in either a center program or a noncenter program.

(2) 泥istrict and high school graduation rate means the annual completion and pupil dropout rate that is calculated by the center pursuant to nationally recognized standards.

(3) 泥istrict and high school graduation report means a report of the number of pupils, excluding adult education participants, in the district for the immediately preceding school year, adjusted for those pupils who have transferred into or out of the district or high school, who leave high school with a diploma or other credential of equal status.

(4) 溺embership, except as otherwise provided in this article, means for a district, a public school academy, or an intermediate district the sum of the product of .90 times the number of full-time equated pupils in grades K to 12 actually enrolled and in regular daily attendance in the district, public school academy, or intermediate district on the pupil membership count day for the current school year, plus the product of .10 times the final audited count from the supplemental count day of full-time equated pupils in grades K to 12 actually enrolled and in regular daily attendance in the district, public school academy, or intermediate district for the immediately preceding school year. A district痴, public school academy痴, or intermediate district痴 membership is adjusted as provided under section 25e for pupils who enroll after the pupil membership count day in a strict discipline academy operating under sections 1311b to 1311m of the revised school code, MCL 380.1311b to 380.1311m. All pupil counts used in this subsection are as determined by the department and calculated by adding the number of pupils registered for attendance plus pupils received by transfer and minus pupils lost as defined by rules promulgated by the superintendent, and as corrected by a subsequent department audit. The amount of the foundation allowance for a pupil in membership is determined under section 20. In making the calculation of membership, all of the following, as applicable, apply to determining the membership of a district, a public school academy, or an intermediate district:

(a) Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, and pursuant to subsection (6), a pupil is counted in membership in the pupil痴 educating district or districts. Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, an individual pupil must not be counted for more than a total of 1.0 full-time equated membership.

(b) If a pupil is educated in a district other than the pupil痴 district of residence, if the pupil is not being educated as part of a cooperative education program, if the pupil痴 district of residence does not give the educating district its approval to count the pupil in membership in the educating district, and if the pupil is not covered by an exception specified in subsection (6) to the requirement that the educating district must have the approval of the pupil痴 district of residence to count the pupil in membership, the pupil is not counted in membership in any district.

(c) A special education pupil educated by the intermediate district is counted in membership in the intermediate district.

(d) A pupil placed by a court or state agency in an on-grounds program of a juvenile detention facility, a child caring institution, or a mental health institution, or a pupil funded under section 53a, is counted in membership in the district or intermediate district approved by the department to operate the program.

(e) A pupil enrolled in the Michigan Schools for the Deaf and Blind is counted in membership in the pupil痴 intermediate district of residence.

(f) A pupil enrolled in a career and technical education program supported by a millage levied over an area larger than a single district or in an area vocational-technical education program established under section 690 of the revised school code, MCL 380.690, is counted in membership only in the pupil痴 district of residence.

(g) A pupil enrolled in a public school academy is counted in membership in the public school academy.

(h) For the purposes of this section and section 6a, for a cyber school, as that term is defined in section 551 of the revised school code, MCL 380.551, that is in compliance with section 553a of the revised school code, MCL 380.553a, a pupil痴 participation in the cyber school痴 educational program is considered regular daily attendance, and for a district or public school academy, a pupil痴 participation in a virtual course as that term is defined in section 21f is considered regular daily attendance. Beginning July 1, 2021, this subdivision is subject to section 8c. It is the intent of the legislature that the immediately preceding sentence apply retroactively and is effective July 1, 2021. For the purposes of this subdivision, for a pupil enrolled in a cyber school, all of the following apply with regard to the participation requirement as described in this subdivision:

(i) Except as otherwise provided in this subdivision, the pupil shall participate in each scheduled course on pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, as applicable. If the pupil is absent on pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, as applicable, the pupil must attend and participate in class during the next 10 consecutive school days if the absence was unexcused, or during the next 30 calendar days if the absence was excused.

(ii) For a pupil who is not learning sequentially, 1 or more of the following must be met on pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, as applicable, for each scheduled course to satisfy the participation requirement under this subdivision:

(A) The pupil attended a live lesson from the teacher.

(B) The pupil logged into a lesson or lesson activity and the login can be documented.

(C) The pupil and teacher engaged in a subject-oriented telephone conversation.

(D) There is documentation of an email dialogue between the pupil and teacher.

(E) There is documentation of activity or work between the learning coach and pupil.

(F) An alternate form of attendance as determined and agreed upon by the cyber school and the pupil membership auditor was met.

(iii) For a pupil using sequential learning, the participation requirement under this subdivision is satisfied if either of the following occurs:

(A) Except as otherwise provided in this sub-subparagraph, the pupil and the teacher of record or mentor complete a 2-way interaction for 1 course during the week on which pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, as applicable, occurs, and the 3 consecutive weeks following that week. However, if a school break is scheduled during any of the weeks described in this sub-subparagraph that is 4 or more days in length or instruction has been canceled districtwide during any of the weeks described in this sub-subparagraph for 3 or more school days, the district is not required to ensure that the pupil and the teacher of record or mentor completed a 2-way interaction for that week. As used in this sub-subparagraph:

(I) 2-way interaction means the communication that occurs between the teacher of record or mentor and pupil, where 1 party initiates communication and a response from the other party follows that communication. Responses as described in this sub-sub-subparagraph must be to the communication initiated by the teacher of record or mentor, and not some other action taken. This interaction may occur through, but is not limited to, means such as email, telephone, instant messaging, or face-to-face conversation. A parent- or legal-guardian-facilitated 2-way interaction is considered a 2-way interaction if the pupil is in any of grades K to 5 and does not yet possess the skills necessary to participate in 2-way interactions unassisted. The interactions described in this sub-sub-subparagraph must relate to a virtual course on the pupil痴 schedule and pertain to course content or progress.

(II) 溺entor means a professional employee of the district who monitors the pupil痴 progress, ensures the pupil has access to needed technology, is available for assistance, and ensures access to the teacher of record. A mentor may also be the teacher of record if the mentor meets the definition of a teacher of record under this sub-subparagraph and the district is the provider for the course.

(III) 典eacher of record means a teacher to whom all of the following apply:

(1) The teacher is responsible for providing instruction, determining instructional methods for each pupil, diagnosing learning needs, assessing pupil learning, prescribing intervention strategies and modifying lessons, reporting outcomes, and evaluating the effects of instruction and support strategies. The teacher of record may coordinate the distribution and assignment of the responsibilities described in this sub-sub-sub-subparagraph with other teachers participating in the instructional process for a course.

(2) The teacher is certified for the grade level or is working under a valid substitute permit, authorization, or approval issued by the department.

(3) The teacher has a personnel identification code provided by the center.

(IV) 展eek means a period that starts on Wednesday and ends the following Tuesday.

(B) The pupil completes a combination of 1 or more of the following activities for each scheduled course on pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, as applicable:

(I) Documented attendance in a virtual course where synchronous, live instruction occurred with the teacher.

(II) Documented completion of a course assignment.

(III) Documented completion of a course lesson or lesson activity.

(IV) Documented pupil access to an ongoing lesson, which does not include a login.

(V) Documented physical attendance on pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, as applicable, in each scheduled course, if the pupil will attend at least 50% of the instructional time for each scheduled course on-site, face-to-face with the teacher of record. As used in this sub-sub-subparagraph, 鍍eacher of record means that term as defined in subparagraph (iii)(A).

(iv) For purposes of subparagraph (iii), each scheduled course currently being attempted by the pupil, rather than every course on the pupil痴 schedule for the entire term, is considered a part of each scheduled course for the pupil.

(i) For a new district or public school academy beginning its operation after December 31, 1994, membership for the first 2 full or partial fiscal years of operation is determined as follows:

(i) If operations begin before the pupil membership count day for the fiscal year, membership is the average number of full-time equated pupils in grades K to 12 actually enrolled and in regular daily attendance on the pupil membership count day for the current school year and on the supplemental count day for the current school year, as determined by the department and calculated by adding the number of pupils registered for attendance on the pupil membership count day plus pupils received by transfer and minus pupils lost as defined by rules promulgated by the superintendent, and as corrected by a subsequent department audit, plus the final audited count from the supplemental count day for the current school year, and dividing that sum by 2.

(ii) If operations begin after the pupil membership count day for the fiscal year and not later than the supplemental count day for the fiscal year, membership is the final audited count of the number of full-time equated pupils in grades K to 12 actually enrolled and in regular daily attendance on the supplemental count day for the current school year.

(j) If a district is the authorizing body for a public school academy, then, in the first school year in which pupils are counted in membership on the pupil membership count day in the public school academy, the determination of the district痴 membership excludes from the district痴 pupil count for the immediately preceding supplemental count day any pupils who are counted in the public school academy on that first pupil membership count day who were also counted in the district on the immediately preceding supplemental count day.

(k) For an extended school year program approved by the superintendent, a pupil enrolled, but not scheduled to be in regular daily attendance, on a pupil membership count day, is counted in membership.

(l) To be counted in membership, a pupil must meet the minimum age requirement to be eligible to attend school under section 1147 of the revised school code, MCL 380.1147, and must be less than 20 years of age on September 1 of the school year except as follows:

(i) A special education pupil who is enrolled and receiving instruction in a special education program or service approved by the department, who does not have a high school diploma, and who is less than 26 years of age as of September 1 of the current school year is counted in membership.

(ii) A pupil who is determined by the department to meet all of the following may be counted in membership:

(A) Is enrolled in a public school academy or an alternative education high school diploma program, that is primarily focused on educating pupils with extreme barriers to education, such as being homeless as that term is defined under 42 USC 11302.

(B) Had dropped out of school.

(C) Is less than 22 years of age as of September 1 of the current school year.

(iii) If a child does not meet the minimum age requirement to be eligible to attend school for that school year under section 1147 of the revised school code, MCL 380.1147, but will be 5 years of age not later than December 1 of that school year, the district may count the child in membership for that school year if the parent or legal guardian has notified the district in writing that the parent or legal guardian intends to enroll the child in kindergarten for that school year.

(m) An individual who has achieved a high school diploma is not counted in membership. An individual who has achieved a high school equivalency certificate is not counted in membership unless the individual is a student with a disability as that term is defined in R 340.1702 of the Michigan Administrative Code. An individual participating in a job training program funded under former section 107a or a jobs program funded under former section 107b, administered by the department of labor and economic opportunity, or participating in any successor of either of those 2 programs, is not counted in membership.

(n) If a pupil counted in membership in a public school academy is also educated by a district or intermediate district as part of a cooperative education program, the pupil is counted in membership only in the public school academy unless a written agreement signed by all parties designates the party or parties in which the pupil is counted in membership, and the instructional time scheduled for the pupil in the district or intermediate district is included in the full-time equated membership determination under subdivision (q) and section 101. However, for pupils receiving instruction in both a public school academy and in a district or intermediate district but not as a part of a cooperative education program, the following apply:

(i) If the public school academy provides instruction for at least 1/2 of the class hours required under section 101, the public school academy receives as its prorated share of the full-time equated membership for each of those pupils an amount equal to 1 times the product of the hours of instruction the public school academy provides divided by the number of hours required under section 101 for full-time equivalency, and the remainder of the full-time membership for each of those pupils is allocated to the district or intermediate district providing the remainder of the hours of instruction.

(ii) If the public school academy provides instruction for less than 1/2 of the class hours required under section 101, the district or intermediate district providing the remainder of the hours of instruction receives as its prorated share of the full-time equated membership for each of those pupils an amount equal to 1 times the product of the hours of instruction the district or intermediate district provides divided by the number of hours required under section 101 for full-time equivalency, and the remainder of the full-time membership for each of those pupils is allocated to the public school academy.

(o) An individual less than 16 years of age as of September 1 of the current school year who is being educated in an alternative education program is not counted in membership if there are also adult education participants being educated in the same program or classroom.

(p) The department shall give a uniform interpretation of full-time and part-time memberships.

(q) The number of class hours used to calculate full-time equated memberships must be consistent with section 101. In determining full-time equated memberships for pupils who are enrolled in a postsecondary institution or for pupils engaged in an internship or work experience under section 1279h of the revised school code, MCL 380.1279h, a pupil is not considered to be less than a full-time equated pupil solely because of the effect of the pupil痴 postsecondary enrollment or engagement in the internship or work experience, including necessary travel time, on the number of class hours provided by the district to the pupil.

(r) Full-time equated memberships for pupils in kindergarten are determined by dividing the number of instructional hours scheduled and provided per year per kindergarten pupil by the same number used for determining full-time equated memberships for pupils in grades 1 to 12. However, to the extent allowable under federal law, for a district or public school academy that provides evidence satisfactory to the department that it used federal title I money in the 2 immediately preceding school fiscal years to fund full-time kindergarten, full-time equated memberships for pupils in kindergarten are determined by dividing the number of class hours scheduled and provided per year per kindergarten pupil by a number equal to 1/2 the number used for determining full-time equated memberships for pupils in grades 1 to 12. The change in the counting of full-time equated memberships for pupils in kindergarten that took effect for 2012-2013 is not a mandate.

(s) For a district or a public school academy that has pupils enrolled in a grade level that was not offered by the district or public school academy in the immediately preceding school year, the number of pupils enrolled in that grade level to be counted in membership is the average of the number of those pupils enrolled and in regular daily attendance on the pupil membership count day and the supplemental count day of the current school year. Membership is calculated by adding the number of pupils registered for attendance in that grade level on the pupil membership count day plus pupils received by transfer and minus pupils lost as defined by rules promulgated by the superintendent, and as corrected by subsequent department audit, plus the final audited count from the supplemental count day for the current school year, and dividing that sum by 2.

(t) A pupil enrolled in a cooperative education program may be counted in membership in the pupil痴 district of residence with the written approval of all parties to the cooperative agreement.

(u) If, as a result of a disciplinary action, a district determines through the district痴 alternative or disciplinary education program that the best instructional placement for a pupil is in the pupil痴 home or otherwise apart from the general school population, if that placement is authorized in writing by the district superintendent and district alternative or disciplinary education supervisor, and if the district provides appropriate instruction as described in this subdivision to the pupil at the pupil痴 home or otherwise apart from the general school population, the district may count the pupil in membership on a pro rata basis, with the proration based on the number of hours of instruction the district actually provides to the pupil divided by the number of hours required under section 101 for full-time equivalency. For the purposes of this subdivision, a district is considered to be providing appropriate instruction if all of the following are met:

(i) The district provides at least 2 nonconsecutive hours of instruction per week to the pupil at the pupil痴 home or otherwise apart from the general school population under the supervision of a certificated teacher.

(ii) The district provides instructional materials, resources, and supplies that are comparable to those otherwise provided in the district痴 alternative education program.

(iii) Course content is comparable to that in the district痴 alternative education program.

(iv) Credit earned is awarded to the pupil and placed on the pupil痴 transcript.

(v) If a pupil was enrolled in a public school academy on the pupil membership count day, if the public school academy痴 contract with its authorizing body is revoked or the public school academy otherwise ceases to operate, and if the pupil enrolls in a district within 45 days after the pupil membership count day, the department shall adjust the district痴 pupil count for the pupil membership count day to include the pupil in the count.

(w) For a public school academy that has been in operation for at least 2 years and that suspended operations for at least 1 semester and is resuming operations, membership is the sum of the product of .90 times the number of full-time equated pupils in grades K to 12 actually enrolled and in regular daily attendance on the first pupil membership count day or supplemental count day, whichever is first, occurring after operations resume, plus the product of .10 times the final audited count from the most recent pupil membership count day or supplemental count day that occurred before suspending operations, as determined by the superintendent.

(x) If a district痴 membership for a particular fiscal year, as otherwise calculated under this subsection, would be less than 1,550 pupils, the district has 4.5 or fewer pupils per square mile, as determined by the department, and the district does not receive funding under section 22d(2), the district痴 membership is considered to be the membership figure calculated under this subdivision. If a district educates and counts in its membership pupils in grades 9 to 12 who reside in a contiguous district that does not operate grades 9 to 12 and if 1 or both of the affected districts request the department to use the determination allowed under this sentence, the department shall include the square mileage of both districts in determining the number of pupils per square mile for each of the districts for the purposes of this subdivision. If a district has established a community engagement advisory committee in partnership with the department of treasury, is required to submit a deficit elimination plan or an enhanced deficit elimination plan under section 1220 of the revised school code, MCL 380.1220, and is located in a city with a population between 9,000 and 11,000, as determined by the department, that is in a county with a population between 150,000 and 160,000, as determined by the department, the district痴 membership is considered to be the membership figure calculated under this subdivision. The membership figure calculated under this subdivision is the greater of the following:

(i) The average of the district痴 membership for the 3-fiscal-year period ending with that fiscal year, calculated by adding the district痴 actual membership for each of those 3 fiscal years, as otherwise calculated under this subsection, and dividing the sum of those 3 membership figures by 3.

(ii) The district痴 actual membership for that fiscal year as otherwise calculated under this subsection.

(y) Full-time equated memberships for special education pupils who are not enrolled in kindergarten but are enrolled in a classroom program under R 340.1754 of the Michigan Administrative Code are determined by dividing the number of class hours scheduled and provided per year by 450. Full-time equated memberships for special education pupils who are not enrolled in kindergarten but are receiving early childhood special education services under R 340.1755 or R 340.1862 of the Michigan Administrative Code are determined by dividing the number of hours of service scheduled and provided per year per pupil by 180.

(z) A pupil of a district that begins its school year after Labor Day who is enrolled in an intermediate district program that begins before Labor Day is not considered to be less than a full-time pupil solely due to instructional time scheduled but not attended by the pupil before Labor Day.

(aa) For the first year in which a pupil is counted in membership on the pupil membership count day in a middle college program, the membership is the average of the full-time equated membership on the pupil membership count day and on the supplemental count day for the current school year, as determined by the department. If a pupil described in this subdivision was counted in membership by the operating district on the immediately preceding supplemental count day, the pupil is excluded from the district痴 immediately preceding supplemental count for the purposes of determining the district痴 membership.

(bb) A district or public school academy that educates a pupil who attends a United States Olympic Education Center may count the pupil in membership regardless of whether or not the pupil is a resident of this state.

(cc) A pupil enrolled in a district other than the pupil痴 district of residence under section 1148(2) of the revised school code, MCL 380.1148, is counted in the educating district.

(dd) For a pupil enrolled in a dropout recovery program that meets the requirements of section 23a, the pupil is counted as 1/12 of a full-time equated membership for each month that the district operating the program reports that the pupil was enrolled in the program and was in full attendance. However, if the special membership counting provisions under this subdivision and the operation of the other membership counting provisions under this subsection result in a pupil being counted as more than 1.0 FTE in a fiscal year, the payment made for the pupil under sections 22a and 22b must not be based on more than 1.0 FTE for that pupil, and any portion of an FTE for that pupil that exceeds 1.0 is instead paid under section 25g. The district operating the program shall report to the center the number of pupils who were enrolled in the program and were in full attendance for a month not later than 30 days after the end of the month. A district shall not report a pupil as being in full attendance for a month unless both of the following are met:

(i) A personalized learning plan is in place on or before the first school day of the month for the first month the pupil participates in the program.

(ii) Either of the following is met:

(A) The pupil meets the district痴 definition under section 23a of satisfactory monthly progress for that month or, if the pupil does not meet that definition of satisfactory monthly progress for that month, the pupil did meet that definition of satisfactory monthly progress in the immediately preceding month and appropriate interventions, as defined by the district, are implemented within 10 school days after it is determined that the pupil does not meet that definition of satisfactory monthly progress.

(B) For the first 2 months that the pupil participates in the program, the pupil earns 0.25 credit by the end of the second month. A pupil described in this sub-subparagraph may be retroactively reported as being in full attendance for the first month that the pupil participated in the program.

(ee) A pupil participating in a virtual course under section 21f is counted in membership in the district enrolling the pupil.

(ff) If a public school academy that is not in its first or second year of operation closes at the end of a school year and does not reopen for the next school year, the department shall adjust the membership count of the district or other public school academy in which a former pupil of the closed public school academy enrolls and is in regular daily attendance for the next school year to ensure that the district or other public school academy receives the same amount of membership aid for the pupil as if the pupil were counted in the district or other public school academy on the supplemental count day of the preceding school year.

(gg) If a special education pupil is expelled under section 1311 or 1311a of the revised school code, MCL 380.1311 and 380.1311a, and is not in attendance on the pupil membership count day because of the expulsion, and if the pupil remains enrolled in the district and resumes regular daily attendance during that school year, the district痴 membership is adjusted to count the pupil in membership as if the pupil had been in attendance on the pupil membership count day.

(hh) A pupil enrolled in a community district is counted in membership in the community district.

(ii) A part-time pupil enrolled in a nonpublic school in grades K to 12 in accordance with section 166b must not be counted as more than 0.75 of a full-time equated membership.

(jj) A district that borders another state or a public school academy that operates at least grades 9 to 12 and is located within 20 miles of a border with another state may count in membership a pupil who is enrolled in a course at a college or university that is located in the bordering state and within 20 miles of the border with this state if all of the following are met:

(i) The pupil would meet the definition of an eligible student under the postsecondary enrollment options act, 1996 PA 160, MCL 388.511 to 388.524, if the course were an eligible course under that act.

(ii) The course in which the pupil is enrolled would meet the definition of an eligible course under the postsecondary enrollment options act, 1996 PA 160, MCL 388.511 to 388.524, if the course were provided by an eligible postsecondary institution under that act.

(iii) The department determines that the college or university is an institution that, in the other state, fulfills a function comparable to a state university or community college, as those terms are defined in section 3 of the postsecondary enrollment options act, 1996 PA 160, MCL 388.513, or is an independent nonprofit degree-granting college or university.

(iv) The district or public school academy pays for a portion of the pupil痴 tuition at the college or university in an amount equal to the eligible charges that the district or public school academy would pay to an eligible postsecondary institution under the postsecondary enrollment options act, 1996 PA 160, MCL 388.511 to 388.524, as if the course were an eligible course under that act.

(v) The district or public school academy awards high school credit to a pupil who successfully completes a course as described in this subdivision.

(kk) A pupil enrolled in a middle college program may be counted for more than a total of 1.0 full-time equated membership for any of the school years in which the pupil is enrolled in the middle college program, but the total full-time equated membership for that pupil for all of the school years in which the pupil is enrolled in high school must not be greater than 5.00 full-time equated membership if the pupil is enrolled in more than the minimum number of instructional days and hours required under section 101 and the pupil is expected to complete the 5-year program with both a high school diploma and at least 60 transferable college credits or is expected to earn an associate痴 degree in fewer than 5 years. A pupil who graduates with both a high school diploma and at least 60 transferable college credits or an associate degree at least 1 semester early is considered to have completed the middle college program in fewer than 5 years.

(b) For a district that had a foundation allowance for the immediately preceding fiscal year that was greater than the target foundation allowance for the immediately preceding fiscal year, the district痴 foundation allowance is an amount equal to the lesser of (the sum of the district痴 foundation allowance for the immediately preceding fiscal year plus any per pupil amount calculated under section 20m(2) in the immediately preceding fiscal year plus the increase in the target foundation allowance for the current fiscal year, as compared to the immediately preceding fiscal year) or (the product of the district痴 foundation allowance for the immediately preceding fiscal year times the percentage increase in the United States Consumer Price Index in the calendar year ending in the immediately preceding fiscal year as reported by the May revenue estimating conference conducted under section 367b of the management and budget act, 1984 PA 431, MCL 18.1367b).

(c) For a district that has a foundation allowance that is less than the target foundation allowance in the current fiscal year but had a foundation allowance in fiscal year 2020-2021 that was greater than the target foundation allowance in effect for that fiscal year, the district痴 foundation allowance is an amount equal to the lesser of (the sum of the district痴 foundation allowance for fiscal year 2020-2021 plus the increase in the target foundation allowance for the current fiscal year, as compared to fiscal year 2020-2021) or (the product of the district痴 foundation allowance for the immediately preceding fiscal year times the percentage increase in the United States Consumer Price Index in the calendar year ending in the immediately preceding fiscal year as reported by the May revenue estimating conference conducted under section 367b of the management and budget act, 1984 PA 431, MCL 18.1367b).

(c) For a district that had a foundation allowance in the immediately preceding fiscal year that was less than the target foundation allowance in effect for that fiscal year, the district痴 foundation allowance is an amount equal to the lesser of (the sum of district痴 foundation allowance for the immediately preceding fiscal year plus any per pupil amount calculated under section 20m(2) in the immediately preceding fiscal year plus the increase in the target foundation allowance for the current fiscal year, as compared to the immediately preceding fiscal year) or (the product of the district痴 foundation allowance for the immediately preceding fiscal year times the percentage increase in the United States Consumer Price Index in the calendar year ending in the immediately preceding fiscal year as reported by the May revenue estimating conference conducted under section 367b of the management and budget act, 1984 PA 431, MCL 18.1367b).

(d) For a district that has a foundation allowance that is not a whole dollar amount, the department shall round the district痴 foundation allowance up to the nearest whole dollar.

(6) Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, for pupils in membership, other than special education pupils, in a public school academy, the allocation calculated under this section is an amount per membership pupil other than special education pupils in the public school academy equal to the target foundation allowance specified in subsection (1), or, for a public school academy that was issued a contract under section 552 of the revised school code, MCL 380.552, to operate as a school of excellence that is a cyber school, $9,150.00. Notwithstanding section 101, for a public school academy that begins operations after the pupil membership count day, the amount per membership pupil calculated under this subsection must be adjusted by multiplying that amount per membership pupil by the number of hours of pupil instruction provided by the public school academy after it begins operations, as determined by the department, divided by the minimum number of hours of pupil instruction required under section 101(3). The result of this calculation must not exceed the amount per membership pupil otherwise calculated under this subsection.

(7) For pupils in membership, other than special education pupils, in a community district, the allocation calculated under this section is an amount per membership pupil other than special education pupils in the community district equal to the foundation allowance of the qualifying school district, as described in section 12b of the revised school code, MCL 380.12b, that is located within the same geographic area as the community district.

This subsection does not apply to a receiving district unless there is a subsequent consolidation or annexation that affects the district. The calculation under this subsection must take into account a district痴 per-pupil allocation under section 20m.

(9) The department shall round each fraction used in making calculations under this section to the fourth decimal place and shall round the dollar amount of an increase in the target foundation allowance to the nearest whole dollar.

(10) For 2022-2023, state payments related to payment of the foundation allowance for a special education pupil are not calculated under this section but are instead calculated as follows:

(11) For 2023-2024, state payments related to payment of the foundation allowance for a special education pupil are not calculated under this section but are instead calculated under section 51e.

(12) To assist the legislature in determining the target foundation allowance for the subsequent fiscal year, each revenue estimating conference conducted under section 367b of the management and budget act, 1984 PA 431, MCL 18.1367b, must calculate a pupil membership factor, a revenue adjustment factor, and an index as follows:

(a) The pupil membership factor is computed by dividing the estimated membership in the school year ending in the current fiscal year, excluding intermediate district membership, by the estimated membership for the school year ending in the subsequent fiscal year, excluding intermediate district membership. If a consensus membership factor is not determined at the revenue estimating conference, the principals of the revenue estimating conference shall report their estimates to the house and senate subcommittees responsible for school aid appropriations not later than 7 days after the conclusion of the revenue conference.

(b) The revenue adjustment factor is computed by dividing the sum of the estimated total state school aid fund revenue for the subsequent fiscal year plus the estimated total state school aid fund revenue for the current fiscal year, adjusted for any change in the rate or base of a tax the proceeds of which are deposited in that fund and excluding money transferred into that fund from the countercyclical budget and economic stabilization fund under the management and budget act, 1984 PA 431, MCL 18.1101 to 18.1594, by the sum of the estimated total school aid fund revenue for the current fiscal year plus the estimated total state school aid fund revenue for the immediately preceding fiscal year, adjusted for any change in the rate or base of a tax the proceeds of which are deposited in that fund. If a consensus revenue factor is not determined at the revenue estimating conference, the principals of the revenue estimating conference shall report their estimates to the house and senate subcommittees responsible for school aid appropriations not later than 7 days after the conclusion of the revenue conference.

(c) The index is calculated by multiplying the pupil membership factor by the revenue adjustment factor. If a consensus index is not determined at the revenue estimating conference, the principals of the revenue estimating conference shall report their estimates to the house and senate subcommittees responsible for state school aid appropriations not later than 7 days after the conclusion of the revenue conference.

(13) Payments to districts and public school academies are not made under this section. Rather, the calculations under this section are used to determine the amount of state payments under section 22b.

(14) If an amendment to section 2 of article VIII of the state constitution of 1963 allowing state aid to some or all nonpublic schools is approved by the voters of this state, each foundation allowance or per-pupil payment calculation under this section may be reduced.

For meeting the costs of special education programs and services not reimbursed under this article, a district or intermediate district may use money in general funds or special education funds, not otherwise restricted, or contributions from districts to intermediate districts, tuition payments, gifts and contributions from individuals or other entities, or federal funds that may be available for this purpose, as determined by the intermediate district plan prepared under article 3 of the revised school code, MCL 380.1701 to 380.1761. Notwithstanding section 17b, the department shall make payments of federal funds to districts, intermediate districts, and other eligible entities under this section on a schedule determined by the department.

(2) From the funds allocated under subsection (1), there is allocated the amount necessary, estimated at $350,400,000.00 $357,400,000.00 for 2022-2023 and estimated at $368,000,000.00 for 2023-2024, for payments toward reimbursing districts and intermediate districts for 28.6138% of total approved costs of special education, excluding costs reimbursed under section 53a, and 70.4165% of total approved costs of special education transportation. Allocations under this subsection are made as follows:

(a) For 2022-2023, the department shall calculate the initial amount allocated to a district under this subsection toward fulfilling the specified percentages by multiplying the district痴 special education pupil membership, excluding pupils described in subsection (11), times 25% of the foundation allowance under section 20 of the pupil痴 district of residence, plus 25% of the amount of the district痴 per-pupil allocation under section 20m, not to exceed 25% of the target foundation allowance for the current fiscal year, or, for a special education pupil in membership in a district that is a public school academy, times an amount equal to 25% of the amount per membership pupil calculated under section 20(6). For an intermediate district, the amount allocated under this subdivision toward fulfilling the specified percentages is an amount per special education membership pupil, excluding pupils described in subsection (11), and is calculated in the same manner as for a district, using 25% of the foundation allowance under section 20 of the pupil痴 district of residence, not to exceed 25% of the target foundation allowance for the current fiscal year, and that district痴 per-pupil allocation under section 20m.

(b) For 2022-2023, after the allocation under subdivision (a), the department shall pay a district or intermediate district for which the payments calculated under subdivision (a) do not fulfill the specified percentages the amount necessary to achieve the specified percentages for the district or intermediate district.

(c) Beginning in 2023-2024, subdivisions (a) and (b) no longer apply.

(3) From the funds allocated under subsection (1), there is allocated for 2022-2023 an amount not to exceed $1,000,000.00 and there is allocated for 2023-2024 an amount not to exceed $1,000,000.00 to make payments to districts and intermediate districts under this subsection. If the amount allocated to a district or intermediate district for the fiscal year under subsection (2) is less than the sum of the amounts allocated to the district or intermediate district for 1996-97 under sections 52 and 58, there is allocated to the district or intermediate district for the fiscal year an amount equal to that difference, adjusted by applying the same proration factor that was used in the distribution of funds under section 52 in 1996-97 as adjusted to the district痴 or intermediate district痴 necessary costs of special education used in calculations for the fiscal year. This adjustment is to reflect reductions in special education program operations or services between 1996-97 and subsequent fiscal years. The department shall make adjustments for reductions in special education program operations or services in a manner determined by the department and shall include adjustments for program or service shifts.

(4) If the department determines that the sum of the amounts allocated for a fiscal year to a district or intermediate district under subsection (2) is not sufficient to fulfill the specified percentages in subsection (2), then the department shall pay the shortfall to the district or intermediate district during the fiscal year beginning on the October 1 following the determination and shall adjust payments under subsection (3) as necessary. If the department determines that the sum of the amounts allocated for a fiscal year to a district or intermediate district under subsection (2) exceeds the sum of the amount necessary to fulfill the specified percentages in subsection (2), then the department shall deduct the amount of the excess from the district痴 or intermediate district痴 payments under this article for the fiscal year beginning on the October 1 following the determination and shall adjust payments under subsection (3) as necessary. For 2022-2023, if the amount allocated under subsection (2)(a) in itself exceeds the amount necessary to fulfill the specified percentages in subsection (2), there is no deduction under this subsection.

(5) State funds are allocated on a total approved cost basis. Federal funds are allocated under applicable federal requirements.

(6) From the amount allocated in subsection (1), there is allocated an amount not to exceed $2,200,000.00 for 2022-2023 and there is allocated an amount not to exceed $2,200,000.00 for 2023-2024 to reimburse 100% of the net increase in necessary costs incurred by a district or intermediate district in implementing the revisions in the administrative rules for special education that became effective on July 1, 1987. As used in this subsection, 渡et increase in necessary costs means the necessary additional costs incurred solely because of new or revised requirements in the administrative rules minus cost savings permitted in implementing the revised rules. The department shall determine net increase in necessary costs in a manner specified by the department.

(7) For purposes of this section and sections 51b to 58, all of the following apply:

(a) 典otal approved costs of special education are determined in a manner specified by the department and may include indirect costs, but must not exceed 115% of approved direct costs for section 52 and section 53a programs. The total approved costs include salary and other compensation for all approved special education personnel for the program, including payments for Social Security and Medicare and public school employee retirement system contributions. The total approved costs do not include salaries or other compensation paid to administrative personnel who are not special education personnel as that term is defined in section 6 of the revised school code, MCL 380.6. Costs reimbursed by federal funds, other than those federal funds included in the allocation made under this article, are not included. Special education approved personnel not utilized full time in the evaluation of students or in the delivery of special education programs, ancillary, and other related services are reimbursed under this section only for that portion of time actually spent providing these programs and services, with the exception of special education programs and services provided to youth placed in child caring institutions or juvenile detention programs approved by the department to provide an on-grounds education program.

(b) A district or intermediate district that employed special education support services staff to provide special education support services in 2003-2004 or in a subsequent fiscal year and that in a fiscal year after 2003-2004 receives the same type of support services from another district or intermediate district shall report the cost of those support services for special education reimbursement purposes under this article. This subdivision does not prohibit the transfer of special education classroom teachers and special education classroom aides if the pupils counted in membership associated with those special education classroom teachers and special education classroom aides are transferred and counted in membership in the other district or intermediate district in conjunction with the transfer of those teachers and aides.

(c) If the department determines before bookclosing for a fiscal year that the amounts allocated for that fiscal year under subsections (2), (3), (6), and (11) and sections 53a, 54, and 56 will exceed expenditures for that fiscal year under subsections (2), (3), (6), and (11) and sections 53a, 54, and 56, then for a district or intermediate district whose reimbursement for that fiscal year would otherwise be affected by subdivision (b), subdivision (b) does not apply to the calculation of the reimbursement for that district or intermediate district and the department shall calculate reimbursement for that district or intermediate district in the same manner as it was for 2003-2004. If the amount of the excess allocations under subsections (2), (3), (6), and (11) and sections 53a, 54, and 56 is not sufficient to fully fund the calculation of reimbursement to those districts and intermediate districts under this subdivision, then the department shall prorate calculations and resulting reimbursement under this subdivision on an equal percentage basis. The amount of reimbursement under this subdivision for a fiscal year must not exceed $2,000,000.00 for any district or intermediate district.

(d) Reimbursement for ancillary and other related services, as that term is defined by R 340.1701c of the Michigan Administrative Code, is not provided when those services are covered by and available through private group health insurance carriers or federal reimbursed program sources unless the department and district or intermediate district agree otherwise and that agreement is approved by the state budget director. Expenses, other than the incidental expense of filing, must not be borne by the parent. In addition, the filing of claims must not delay the education of a pupil. A district or intermediate district is responsible for payment of a deductible amount and for an advance payment required until the time a claim is paid.

(e) If an intermediate district purchases a special education pupil transportation service from a constituent district that was previously purchased from a private entity; if the purchase from the constituent district is at a lower cost, adjusted for changes in fuel costs; and if the cost shift from the intermediate district to the constituent does not result in any net change in the revenue the constituent district receives from payments under sections 22b and 51c, then upon application by the intermediate district, the department shall direct the intermediate district to continue to report the cost associated with the specific identified special education pupil transportation service and shall adjust the costs reported by the constituent district to remove the cost associated with that specific service.

(8) A pupil who is enrolled in a full-time special education program conducted or administered by an intermediate district or a pupil who is enrolled in the Michigan Schools for the Deaf and Blind is not included in the membership count of a district, but is counted in membership in the intermediate district of residence.

(9) Special education personnel transferred from 1 district to another to implement the revised school code are entitled to the rights, benefits, and tenure to which the individual would otherwise be entitled had that individual been employed by the receiving district originally.

(10) If a district or intermediate district uses money received under this section for a purpose other than the purpose or purposes for which the money is allocated, the department may require the district or intermediate district to refund the amount of money received. The department shall deposit money that is refunded in the state treasury to the credit of the state school aid fund.

The department shall calculate the allocation to an intermediate district under this subsection in the same manner as for a district, using the foundation allowance under section 20 of the pupil痴 district of residence not to exceed the target foundation allowance for the current fiscal year and that district痴 per-pupil allocation under section 20m. This subsection applies to all of the following pupils:

(a) Pupils described in section 53a.

(b) Pupils counted in membership in an intermediate district who are not special education pupils and are served by the intermediate district in a juvenile detention or child caring facility.

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator McBroom痴 statement is as follows:

This bill is attempting to make our law fit with constitutional changes that have happened and regarding that, this bill has been created that would disallow our clerks from serving on their local county party executive committee and also conducting the audit at the same time. It痴 really probably an oversight in the process that happened during the proposal痴 writing and is making a big headache for our clerks and for everybody else. My amendment seeks to remedy that problem by allowing the clerks to suspend their membership in their county party from the day of the election until the completion of the post-election audits. That way, they can still do their job that they致e been elected and constitutionally obligated to do, but also not violate the law that says a party official can稚 participate in the audit process.

Ultimately, I believe if we don稚 adopt some sort of change like this, the contradictions within the Constitution of what clerks jobs are to do versus what they池e allowed to is going to create a necessity for the courts to simply tell us what痴 going to happen in the end. We could avoid that by adopting this amendment. I ask for a 土es vote.

Statements

 

 

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

The motion prevailed.

Senator Runestad痴 statement is as follows:

As we all know, last year Michiganders voted overwhelmingly in support of Proposal 1 which, for the first time in the history of the state, would require personal financial disclosure for members of the Legislature. The proposal passed with 66 percent of the vote, but after nearly a year of waiting on the majority to bring up these bills, yesterday we finally had a very brief opportunity to review the final proposed implementation bills for Proposal 1. In so many ways, these bills are a failure. Instead of a robust disclosure package to shed light on the Lansing swamp, this toothless disclosure package failed to realize the intent of Proposal 1 and the will of Michigan痴 voters.

A desperate need for transparency is evident all around us. In case any more proof was needed, it was recently revealed that the chairperson of the House Appropriations Committee and lead sponsor of this bill was also a part owner of a firm that seeks to influence the Legislature. As chair, she appears to have steered taxpayer money to her clients of the firm she owns. And just yesterday, we were shocked with yet another case of abusing power for personal enrichment. The Detroit News reported that Curtis Hertel Jr., who served eight years with us here in the Senate before becoming the Governor痴 top lobbyist, landed a $108,000 consulting contract for an organization that he helped receive a $1.5 million dollar appropriation. Then, just after they were awarded the money, Hertel left the Governor痴 office to run for Congress. These are just the most recent examples of what drives people in Michigan nuts. This lack of transparency is why we needed to do so much more in this transparency bill that was passed yesterday. We need to rip open the corruption cesspool and ventilate it out in the light of day for the taxpayers to see.

Mr. Hertel of course claims there is no relationship between his $100,000 contract and the million-and-a-half dollar appropriation that was steered to the group. And yet, the CEO of the organization admitted talking to Hertel about this sweetheart job at the very same time they were seeking money from the state. Friends, this doesn稚 pass the smell test. Mr. Hertel, who never represented Genesee County in his 22 years of elected office, lands a massive contract from the Greater Flint Health Coalition to study housing just days after giving them $1.5 million. Some might suggest it is a reward for his assistance as he runs for Congress.

Some might also suggest that the money is another way to curry favor with Mrs. Hertel, his wife, who is the state痴 director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services預n agency that controls $31 billion and doles out money to organizations like the Greater Flint Health Coalition. Again friends, this is the stuff that drives Michigan voters nuts.

This is what the voters of Michigan have simply come to expect from the nation痴 least-transparent government耀queezing special interests for personal and political benefit. It is what disgusts the taxpayers. They see the naked power grabs and the personal enrichment. The voters of the state gave us a pretty specific mandate羊equire personal financial disclosure to shine light on this town痴 corruption.

We can no longer accept the deception and personal enrichment running rampant. The financial transparency bill we just passed was a slap in the face to every Michigander hoping for true transparency. Will this deception and duplicity in Lansing ever end?

 

By unanimous consent the Senate returned to the order of
