We come to You today and ask You to fill us with wisdom, understanding and knowledge as we do the work of the people.

Give us the ability to have productive discussions and work together in harmony even when there is honest disagreement. Help guide us to make decisions that make life better for the people we serve.

Motions and Resolutions

 

 

Reps. Martin, Bierlein, Phil Green, BeGole, Mueller, Neeley, Martus, Fink, Meerman, Johnsen, Rigas, DeSana, Markkanen, Aragona, Hoadley, Cavitt, Beeler, Posthumus, Alexander, Bezotte, Bollin, Conlin, Fitzgerald, Glanville, Jaime Greene, Haadsma, Hope, Kunse, Liberati, Lightner, Morse, Rogers, Schuette, Snyder, Stone and Weiss offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 24.

A resolution to declare February 1, 2023, as Blue Star Mothers Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, On January 22, 1942, in the midst of the Second World War, U.S. Army Captain George Maines ran an ad in the Flint News Observer calling for mothers of servicemembers to assemble; and

Whereas, On February 1, 1942, 300 mothers met and held their first meeting at the Durant Hotel in Flint, Michigan. February 1, 2023, is the 81st anniversary of this meeting; and

Whereas, On July 14, 1960, the Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. received its Congressional Charter; and

Whereas, Blue Star Mothers make enormous sacrifices while their sons and daughters are providing for the defense of the nation; and

Whereas, Blue Star Mothers pack and ship thousands of care packages every year to servicemembers deployed overseas, volunteer to help homeless veterans, provide support for Wounded Warriors, visit with hospitalized veterans, honor fallen heroes during funeral services, and offer a compassionate community for the mothers of men and women in uniform serving in harm痴 way; and

Whereas, Blue Star Mothers promote American values, demonstrate a patriotic spirit and advance a national sense of pride and appreciation for our men and women in uniform; and

Whereas, There are over 200 active Chapters of the Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc. throughout the United States representing thousands of military families; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare February 1, 2023, as Blue Star Mothers Day in the state of Michigan. We honor and recognize the contributions of the members of the Blue State Mothers of America, Inc. and the important role Blue Star Mothers play in supporting each other and veterans. We encourage all citizens of the United States to observe this momentous occasion and reflect on the contributions and sacrifices of the mothers of servicemembers.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

Reps. Mueller, Alexander, BeGole, Bezotte, Haadsma, Kunse, Liberati, Rogers, Snyder and Weiss offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 25.

A resolution to declare February 2023 as Self-Care Awareness Month in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Self-care is the lifelong daily habit of healthy choices for overall wellness, including good hygiene practices, healthy diet, regular exercise, and personal healthcare for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and management of infections, injuries, and illness, as well as knowing when to seek assistance from healthcare professionals; and

Whereas, Self-care is a cornerstone of helping to reduce the overall cost of healthcare in Michigan and the country; and

Whereas, Self-care includes making responsible use of over-the-counter and prescription medications, dietary supplements, and medical devices; and

Whereas, The United States Food and Drug Administration deems over-the-counter medicine safe and effective for the self-care treatment of minor acute and chronic health conditions and symptoms such as pain, the common cold, and allergies, which impact large segments of the population; and

Whereas, According to an Information Resources, Inc. study, every dollar spent on over-the-counter medicines saves the healthcare system more than $7, resulting in more than $146 billion in annual savings; and

Whereas, Over-the-counter medical devices like bandages, menstrual products, face masks, and at-home pregnancy and covid test kits used for the purposes of prevention, testing, and treatment are well-accepted cost saving elements of the healthcare system; and

Whereas, Consumption of vitamin and mineral supplements can fill critical nutrient gaps, particularly for lower income families that may experience food insecurities in Michigan; and

Whereas, Michigan benefits when its citizens practice appropriate self-care, do not make unnecessary visits to healthcare professionals reducing the burden on the healthcare system, and are empowered by higher self-esteem, improved health, and overall wellness; and

Whereas, The availability of self-care can help improve personal and public health, save personal and public treasury, and strengthen the sustainability of the broader healthcare system; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare February 2023 as Self-Care Awareness Month in the state of Michigan. We encourage consumers, healthcare practitioners, policymakers, and regulators to communicate the benefits of this practice.

The question being on the adoption of the resolution,

The resolution was adopted.

 

 

Reps. Wendzel, St. Germaine, Bezotte, Wozniak, DeBoer, DeSana, Bollin, Friske, Rigas, Alexander, BeGole, Jaime Greene, Kunse and Schuette offered the following resolution:

House Resolution No. 26.

A resolution to oppose any attempt by the President of the United States or the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission to ban the use of gas stoves.

Whereas, Banning the use of gas stoves is yet another example of Orwellian, paternalistic, overreaching encroachment on state sovereignty and citizens rights from the federal government. Over 40 million households in the United States have gas stoves. An outright ban is over-encompassing and severely limits consumers choices about the kinds of appliances they can have in their homes; and

Whereas, Banning the use of gas stoves would unnecessarily regulate the hospitality industry and destroy small businesses. Nearly 76% of restaurants use natural gas as a cooking energy source, including 87% of full-service restaurants and 60% of limited-service restaurants. Professional chefs and restaurant owners prefer natural gas stoves because of their cost savings, the ability to control an open flame, and the ease of use and longer lifespan for gas ranges. Approximately 94% of restaurant owners believe that banning gas stoves would hurt their businesses, because a flame is critical to cooking a variety of dishes. Some restaurants, like Asian restaurants, rely exclusively on gas stoves and grills to create a taste and spectacle that is unique to their restaurants and cannot be achieved with electric stoves. Banning gas stoves would require restaurant owners to convert existing building infrastructure to handle a new energy source. The costs associated with these conversions would destroy local and independent restaurants, which are still recovering from the debt accrued during the COVID-19 pandemic; and

Whereas, Banning the use of gas stoves in favor of electric stoves does not help the environment. The electricity used to operate an electric stove must have a power source. In 2021, coal provided the largest share of Michigan痴 electricity generation at 32%, followed by nuclear energy at 30% and natural gas at 27%. Renewable energy only provided about 11% of Michigan痴 net electricity generation in 2021, with wind energy accounting for three-fifths of that power. Thus, electric stoves are not more environmentally friendly than gas stoves; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That we oppose any attempt, current or future, by the President of the United States or the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission to ban the use of gas stoves; and be it further

Resolved, That copies of this resolution be transmitted to the President of the United States, the Chair of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the members of the Michigan congressional delegation.

The resolution was referred to the Committee on Government Operations.
