November 30, 2012 Weekly Roll Call Report

Senate Bill 1360, Extend deadline on school employee pension reform choices: Passed 26 to 12 in the Senate To extend from October 26, 2012 to January 9, 2013, the deadline for public school employees to choose whether to contribute more toward the cost of their defined benefit pensions or else accept a slightly less generous benefit calculation formula, as required by a recently-passed pension reform law.

Senate Bill 909, Create Detroit regional mass transit authority: Passed 24 to 14 in the Senate To create a new Detroit area regional transportation authority covering Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties, and potentially others. Among other powers, the authority could levy property taxes (special assessments) and higher local vehicle registration taxes if approved by a majority of voters in the region, meaning a particular community could not “opt out” of the tax increase. The authority would be specifically authorized to create “rolling rapid transit” corridors along some streets and highways, potentially with dedicated lanes that other motorists could not use. It would be run by a board appointed by the counties and the City of Detroit.

Senate Bill 1021, Increase state property tax payments to locals: Passed 25 to 13 in the Senate To increase from $2 per acre to $4 per acre the amount the state pays to local governments as “payment in lieu of (property) taxes” (PILT) on state-owned land in their jurisdictions, and index the amount to inflation going forward.

Senate Bill 1240, Extend lawsuit liability waivers to certain social services agencies: Passed 25 to 13 in the Senate To give social services agencies licensed to oversee child adoptions, foster care and other child care issues immunity from liability for personal injury or property damage caused by the agency's provision of services, except for gross negligence or willful misconduct.

Senate Bill 402, Authorize physician impaired driver reports: Passed 56 to 52 in the House To establish that while a physician has no affirmative obligation to report to the state or a third party any concerns about person's mental and physical qualifications to safely operate a motor vehicle, he or she may do so, and in such a report should recommend a license suspension of six months or more. The bill establishes that the physician has no liability for either making or not making such a report.

House Bill 5805, Exempt “health care sharing ministries” from insurance regulations: Passed 77 to 30 in the House To establish that “health care sharing ministries” are not subject to state insurance regulations. These are an alternative to insurance, and facilitate voluntary health care cost sharing arrangements among people of similar and sincerely held religious beliefs.

House Bill 5261, Allow more school retiree “double dipping”: Passed 105 to 1 in the House To allow a former school employee to work as a substitute teacher or coach in the district he or she "retired" from and still collect a pension in addition to the substitute or coaching pay. This would also apply if the "retiree" was employed by private firm under contract to provide substitute teachers.

House Bill 5881, Allow pension "double-dipping" by some “retired” prison workers: Passed 58 to 48 in the House on November 29, 2012 To allow retired prison employees to simultaneously collect pension benefits and a paycheck for going back to work in a prison, if the person is paid on a per-diem basis for a limited term, with no (additional) benefits, and for less than 1,040 hours annually (the equivalent of 26 40-hour weeks).

House Bill 6008, blish new “non-ferrous” mine taxation regime: Passed 62 to 45 in the House To revise the taxation of “non-ferrous” mines (including new copper and other mineral mines in the Upper Peninsula). The bill is part of a package that would exempt these mines from property, income, sales and use taxes, and instead levy a “severance tax” based on the amount of material extracted. Various credits would be allowed against pre-operational start-up costs, including regulatory compliance costs. Most of the tax revenue would go to the local government, but some would go to a new state “rural development fund.”

This is a 1 time ping to announce a weekly/biweekly thread to discuss the actions being taken in Lansing. I think we too often get so tied up in national politics that we give our local boys far more leash than they should have.

I'm only pinging the Michigan list once so if you want to be part of the new legislative ping, let me know.

Anything new on HB5225? From what I’ve read Snyder will NOT sign it if/when it reaches his desk.

Our legislature is doing some surprisingly good pro rights stuff these days.

November 9, 2012 Weekly Roll Call Report

Senate Bill 1276, Restrict setting aside state land for “biological diversity”: Passed 26 to 11 in the Senate
To prohibit the Department of Natural Resources from designating an area of land specifically for the purpose of achieving “biological diversity.”

Senate Bill 1238, Revise state land acquisition procedures: Passed 26 to 11 in the Senate
To revise the procedures and criteria for the acquisition by the state of property paid for with Natural Resources Trust Fund money. Among other things, the bill would impose term limits on members of the NRTC board, require more transparency in its property selection process, and ban sales if the seller was harassed, intimidated, or coerced by the Department of Natural Resources, a local government, or a “qualified” conservation organization.

Senate Bill 1051, Ban school board voting with conflict of interest: Passed 31 to 6 in the Senate
To prohibit school board members from voting on union and other contracts if a family member has an interest in a contract or works for the school district, including a spouse, child, parent, sibling, nephew or niece, etc. A board member having a child in a district school would not trigger this restriction.

Senate Bill 1051, Young amendment to Senate Bill 1051: Failed 17 to 20 in the Senate
To extend the school board conflict of interest restrictions proposed by Senate Bill 1051 (above) to include emergency financial managers appointed by the state to manage fiscally failed school districts.

Senate Bill 1132, Revise adult adoption detail: Passed 37 to 0 in the Senate
To allow an individual married person to adopt an adult without the spouse also petitioning for this, or if there is an objection, then with a court’s permission. This might be done for purposes of inheritance. The bill makes an exception to the current requirement that both spouses must petition for this.

Senate Bill 1335, Increase threshold to impose new government workplace safety rules: Passed 25 to 12 in the Senate
To require the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs to not just assert that there is a “clear and convincing need” to impose on employers a new occupational health and safety regulation that exceeds federal standards, but to actually provide a statement of the specific facts used to support the assertion, and show the rule was requested by a broad consensus of employers and employees in an affected industry.

House Bill 5804, Establish statewide indigent criminal defense standards: Passed 71 to 36 in the House
To create a state commission to establish statewide standards and accountability measures for court-appointed attorneys who represent indigent criminal defendants, and a new government office to implement and enforce these statewide. Local governments would be responsible for funding this at current levels (“maintenance of effort”), with the state paying for any additional spending required by new standards, unless the local spending is below minimum levels to be determined by the proposed commission.

What amazes me is no one is talking about Agenda 21 aka Sustainable Development

One Bay Area: A Template for Regional Governance Advocated by” Build One America”
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=e4G5S1TBC4U#!

Apartment Scheme Being Beta-Tested in NYC
http://occupycorporatism.com/agenda-21-micro-apartment-scheme-being-beta-tested-in-nyc/

Stanley Kurtz book, Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities exposes the efforts of the administrative state, in conjunction with social equity interests, to regionalize decision making and funding for what in the past have been local government decisions. It includes requiring suburbs to take their “fair share” of all income levels. No where is this more obvious than in the San Francisco Bay Area with the One Bay Area Plan/Plan Bay Area. Regional unelected bureaucrats tell every city in the Bay Area how many housing units they MUST be prepared to accomodate. For many of the small village type towns, this will force their urbanization and destroy their uniqueness. Kurtz identifies an organization called Building One America. Here is a video, in their own words, of their plans.This is a shortened version of a video that was posted on the Building One America website (www.buildingoneamerica.org). The complete video can be viewed here http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=3hty8teX4us

Terms used by Build One America in the video include:

Zoning out the poor
Affordable housing
Affordable transportation
Livable communities
Regional Opportunity Agenda
Combating poverty=controlling urban sprawl
Vestiges of segregation=suburbs
Segregation=sprawl=inequality
Suburbs must do their “fair share”
Metropolitan wide accept responsibility

All these terms and ideas are spread liberally throughout the One Bay Area Plan. MTC-ABAG are the epitomy of regionalization, taking control out of the hands of local city councils and mayors. The Obama Administration is firmly behind this effort through the support of Valarie Jarrett and Ronald Sims. California is one of the initial test cases. This is soon to be unleashed across the country if Obama gets a second term.

Folks need to get involved in their local city council and county and see what Bills has been passed years ago going into effect soon.

Michigan stop them from messing with the constitution but there is more work to be done and there stil is time!

I didn’t think they were talking about agenda 21 either but there is a bill.

2012 House Bill 5785: Ban “Agenda 21” implementation.

Introduced by Rep. Greg MacMaster (R) on July 18, 2012, to prohibit any Michigan governmental entity from adopting or implementing policy recommendations originating in or traceable to the United Nations “Agenda 21” or any other international laws that infringe or restrict private property rights without due process. Also, to prohibit governments from entering into a contract for services with, paying any money to, or receiving money from a nongovernmental or intergovernmental organizations enlisted to assist in implementing “Agenda 21”.

Referred to the House Government Operations Committee on July 18, 2012.

Oddly, Beck’s novel is not simply a work of fiction, but based on an actual program created by the United Nations by the very same name — “Agenda 21″ — which, according to the UN’s own website, is a “comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations system, governments and major groups, in every area in which human impacts on the environment.” In so many words, the United Nations seeks to co-opt, via individual governments, and eventually, a “one-world government,” privately held land under the auspices of ensuring its “sustainability.” Worse still, the UN’s Agenda 21 has even laid out plans for “depopulation” or rather, “population control.” If it sounds like something out of George Orwell’s 1984, that is because Agenda 21′s tenets are eerily in line with the demented alternate reality Orwell himself had imagined while scribing the pages of his famed novel. “Sustainable development” is the catch-phrase Beck urged his Monday evening viewers to be leery of. Where one can live and what land should be designated for would, under fully-realized Agenda 21 plan, be controlled by the United Nations and a future one-world government.

Thank you,

I really feel once folks are aware we have time to change this around.

When I lived in NYC once a police officer told me when the City Charter plan was first installed that they can arrest you and put you where no one can find you.

There is activity going on in Mich now.
