Simon to resign immediately or for the Michigan State University Board of Trustees to remove her from the Office of President of Michigan State University immediately. EXPLANATION: As seen by the week-long trial of disgraced MSU medical doctor Larry Nassar, multiple reports were made to MSU administration and staff over a 20-year period about his grossly inappropriate conduct, with no action taken by the school. This shows a systemic lack of leadership and accountability.
PASSED 96-11
18 & 19 1/25/2018 HB 5155 & HB 5156 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 5155 & HB 5156 (Rep.

Noble) Amends the Income Tax Act and the City Income Tax Act to ensure that a tax filer can continue to claim the Michigan personal exemption in light of recent federal tax reforms while increasing the personal exemption to $4,800 by 2020. EXPLANATION: Although many Michiganders will see federal tax relief under recent reforms to the tax code, residents will see a state tax increase if we do not make a corresponding change to state law. The Legislature has a responsibility to protect against such unintended consequences, and these bills are a means to that end.
Both bills PASSED 105-1
22 1/25/2018 HB 5422 Passage No I voted NO on HB 5422 (Rep. Tedder) Gives individuals 62 and older a refundable $100 tax credit. EXPLANATION: I am a strong proponent of tax cuts, not carvouts for specific groups of individuals. The legislature should not be picking winners and losers in the form of tax credits, and this credit will be claimed by many individuals that don’t even pay taxes. Instead of giving tax cuts to specific age groups, I am in support of reducing our taxes across the board, and could not support this bill.
PASSED 100-6
23 1/25/2018 HB 5100 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 5100 (Rep. Hughes) Clarifies that attachment of a tow ball, bicycle rack, removable hitch, or any device designed to carry an object on the rear of a vehicle, including the object, is not considered an obstruction of the license plate. EXPLANATION: The current statute is very broad and allows law enforcement to issue a citation for an obstructed license plate regardless of how much of the plate is covered. This bill gives motorists peace of mind when hauling a bike rack or similar apparatus on the rear of their vehicle.

EXPLANATION: There are already laws prohibiting technology from being used for nefarious purposes. This legislation is allowing for people to be prosecuted based off of circumstantial evidence.
Both bills PASSED 103-3
28 1/25/2018 HB 4472 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 4472 (Rep. Bizon) Amends the Public Health Code to allow a pharmacist to dispense an interchangeable biological drug product. EXPLANATION: State statute regulating generic drugs cannot be applied to interchangeable biological drugs. Therefore, statutory updates are necessary to allow these remedies.
PASSED 105-1

33 1/30/2018 HB 4471 Concurrence Yes I voted YES on HB 4471 (Rep. Iden) Creates the Uniform Commercial Real Estate Receivership Act, which establishes standards for the appointment of receivers and delineates the powers and duties of a receiver. EXPLANATION: The Michigan Supreme Court adopted amendments to the Michigan Court Rules to govern certain aspects of receivership cases. This legislation puts these changes into statute.

Iden) Creates a new felony for detainees or prisoners who throw or attempt to throw bodily material on a prison staff. EXPLANATION: These actions are already illegal, so additional penalties should not be added.
Both bills PASSED 86-23
39-41 1/31/2018 HB 4585, HB 4590 & HB 4591 Passage No I voted NO on HB 4585 (Rep. Yaroch), HB 4590 (Rep. Kesto), and HB 4591 (Rep. Iden) Creates a 2 year felony for individuals who commit or attempt to commit a crime against a law enforcement officer, corrections officer, firefighter, or EMS worker. EXPLANATION: The Legislature should avoid the kind of “special victim” legislation embodied by these bills. Every life is equally valuable, and we should not be creating laws that value one life over another. These bills are unnecessary, and there has been no evidence provided that these bills will prevent crimes.
The bills PASSED 94-15, 94-15, and 93-16 respectively
42 1/31/2018 SB 543 Passage Yes I voted YES on SB 543 (Sen. O’Brien) Names a portion of I-94 in Kalamazoo County as the “Ed Switalski, Fire Chief, Comstock Township Memorial Highway.” EXPLANATION: No state funds go towards the naming of this highway.

EXPLANATION: These changes allow more effective and humane methods of sedation to be used when euthanizing animals.
PASSED 105-3
49 2/6/2018 HB 5200 Concurrence Yes I voted YES on HB 5200 (Rep. Howell) Makes technical changes to allow for frog gigging. EXPLANATION: The regulation of frog season(s) would be treated similarly to all other sport fishing regulations, putting Michigan in line with most other state’s regulations on frog gigging.
PASSED 85-23
50 2/7/2018 SB 616 Passage No I voted NO on SB 616 (Sen. Emmons) Gives Indian tribes preference when placing foster children. EXPLANATION: This restricts foster child placement services from putting children in homes that will best suit the child’s situation.

Yanez) Expands the eligibility of participation in the Health Professional Recovery Program to include Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel.

PASSED 107-1
53 & 54 2/8/2018 HB 4486 & HB 4487 Passage No I voted NO on HB 4486 & HB 4487 (Rep. Lucido) Increase penalties for third and fourth degree child abuse. EXPLANATION: I am very hesitant to increase penalties. These bills, although well-intended, increase penalties for those who did not directly commit child abuse. Fourth degree child abuse is vaguely defined, and could be arbitrarily prosecuted. Under the bill, a person could face 2 years in prison for fourth degree child abuse, even if that person never actually harmed a child.
Both bills PASSED 100-9
55 2/8/2018 HB 4705 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 4705 (Rep. Lucido) Requires drivers training curriculum to include training of what to do when pulled over by a law enforcement officer. EXPLANATION: Currently, there is no required educational component that teaches young drivers how to behave if they are stopped by law enforcement. Since the state already sets the requirements for driver’s education, this change may help increase driver safety when interacting with law enforcement.
PASSED 109-0
56 2/8/2018 HB 5456 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 5456 (Rep. Wentworth) Creates the “Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust Claims Transparency Act.” EXPLANATION: Fraudulent asbestos litigation has been rampant for years, and Michigan must join other states that have passed this common-sense legislation to rein in fraud.
PASSED 58-51
57 2/13/2017 HB 4523 Concurrence Yes I voted YES on HB 4523 (Rep. Johnson) Repeals the Michigan Explosives Act of 1970 and institutes identical state penalties for violation of the Federal Explosives Act. EXPLANATION: This legislation repeals a duplicative law requiring a state-issued permit and makes it absolutely clear that a federal permit is required. Federal explosive permitting laws currently protect and vet applicants more thoroughly than state law by requiring a background check and information on the handling, security and storage of explosives.
PASSED 108-0
58 2/13/2017 HB 4665 Concurrence Yes I voted YES on HB 4665 (Rep. VerHeulen) Allows a student to remain enrolled in a strict discipline academy after they no longer meet the requirements for enrollment at the option of their school, parent, or legal guardian.

PASSED 106-2
60 2/13/2017 SB 393 Passage Yes I voted YES on SB 393 (Sen. Horn) Consolidates the currently utilized Tax Increment Financing (TIF) acts into one act and establishes standardized reporting processes and penalties for noncompliance. EXPLANATION: While I am opposed to the concept of TIFs, this bill combined several fragmented TIF acts into one, increased reporting requirements and included metrics to measure effectiveness. This will make it easier to eliminate TIFs in the future.
PASSED 106-2
61 2/14/2017 SB 400 REVOTE REVOTE REVOTE
62 2/14/2017 HB 4410 HB 4410 Yes I voted YES on HB 4410 (Rep. Lucido) Allows an individual, through a written will, to exclude a child from receiving money or property from their estate. EXPLANATION: An individual’s will should be enforced as they intended.

63-67 2/14/2017 HB 5084, HB 5052, HB 5072, HB 5114 & HB 5131   Yes I voted YES on HB 5084 (Rep. Marino), HB 5052 (Rep. Jones), HB 5072 (Rep. Webber), HB 5114 (Rep. Calley) and HB 5131 (Rep. Kosowski) These bills repeal references to election of county auditors, since there are no longer any elected county auditors in Michigan. EXPLANATION: These bills clean up Michigan election law by removing outdated references to county auditors, which are no longer necessary or utilized. The Department of Treasury now audits local units of government.
The first four bills PASSED 109-0, and HB 5131 PASSED 108-1
70 & 71 2/14/2017 SB 748 & SB 750 Passage Yes I voted YES on SB 748 (Sen. Brandenburg) and SB 750 (Sen. Knollenberg) Amends the Income Tax Act and the City Income Tax Act to ensure that a tax filer can continue to claim the Michigan personal exemption in light of recent federal tax reforms while increasing the personal exemption to $4,900 by 2021. EXPLANATION: Although many Michiganders will see federal tax relief under recent reforms to the tax code, residents will see a state tax increase if we do not make a corresponding change to state law. The Legislature has a responsibility to protect against such unintended consequences, and these bills are a means to that end. By increasing the personal exemption, this also provides tax relief to Michigan residents.
Both bills PASSED 107-2 and 109-0 respectively
72 2/14/2017 SB 400 Passage No I voted NO on SB 400 (Sen. Jones) Increases phone taxes to pay for more 911 services. EXPLANATION: I oppose all tax increases. This should be funded through the appropriations process. There is plenty of money in the budget to pay for these infrastructure upgrades.
PASSED 98-11
68, 69 & 73-77 2/14/2017 HB 5040, HB 5041, HB 5043, SB 613, HB 5046, HB 5079 and SB 625 Concurrence Yes I voted YES on HB 5040 (Rep. Chatfield), HB 5041 (Santana), HB 5043 (Rep. Hauck), SB 613 (Sen. Jones), HB 5046 (Rep. Marino), HB 5079 (Rep. Rendon) and SB 625 (Sen. Horn) These bills move up the elimination of Driver Responsibility Fees (DRFs) from October 1, 2019 to October 1, 2018 and provide complete forgiveness to individuals with outstanding DRFs at that time, including by allowing said individuals to have their driver licenses reinstated. EXPLANATION: Driver Responsibility Fees were originally mandated during a previous administration to cover a budget shortfall. These fees in no way improve an individual’s driving skills, and burdens Michigan residents unnecessarily.
All 7 bills PASSED 109-0
78 2/15/2018 HB 5235 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 5235 (Rep. Marino) Amends the Payment of Wages and Fringe Benefits Act to give employers on a regularly scheduled monthly payment schedule 16 days after the end of the previous month to pay employees. EXPLANATION: This streamlines the payroll process and provides options for companies when paying employees.
PASSED 70-39
79 2/15/2018 SB 645 Passage Yes I voted YES on SB 645 (Sen. Casperson) Puts into statute an already-existing state safety oversight entity for public railroad transportation systems. EXPLANATION: This legislation brings the statute into line with federal requirements. Although this issue was dealt with through executive order in 2003, it is important to have the added stability of placing the changes in statute.
PASSED 109-0
80 2/15/2018 HB 5220 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 5220 (Rep. Hoitenga) Allows an increase in the maximum amount of oleoresin capsicum from 10 to 18 percent in a self-defense spray or foam device, as well as allowing dye to be included in the compound. EXPLANATION: These changes makes Michigan regulations on “pepper spray” less stringent and similar to other states.
PASSED 88-21
81 2/15/2018 HB 5091 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 5091 (Rep. Kahle) Amends the Income Tax Act to require employers who withhold taxes to send Treasury a duplicate tax withholding statement for individual employees by January 31, instead of February 28 annually. EXPLANATION: This coordinates state W-2 information timelines with federal W-2 timelines.
PASSED 109-0
82 2/15/2018 HB 5261 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 5261 (Rep. Tedder) Creates a one-time filing requirement, instead of annual for the small taxpayers personal property tax exemption.

Jones) Provides that prior to terminating parental rights, a court must assess a parent’s financial ability to provide care for the child and/or whether a parent has rectified the conditions that led to a removal or prior termination. EXPLANATION: This helps allow families to avoid the court system when it is unnecessary and helps families remain intact.
The bills PASSED 104-1, 103-5 & 107-1
87 2/21/2018 SB 551 Passage No I voted NO on SB 551 (Sen. Hildenbrand) Creates an additional layer of bureaucracy to advise how much revenue the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund (NRTF) Board should make available annually. EXPLANATION: Creating this additional layer of bureaucracy is unnecessary, because if the Legislature believes that projects proposed by the NRTF board are not appropriate, the budget can already be voted down as proposed. This is a solution in search of a problem.
PASSED 56-53
88-90 2/21/2018 HBs 4298-4300 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 4298 (Rep. Kosowski), HB 4299 (Rep. Runestad) & HB 4300 (Rep. Hornberger) Requires investigative forensic interviews of children at child advocacy centers to be entirely video-recorded. EXPLANATION: Dealing with children who have been through a traumatic situation can be a delicate situation. Having a video record of these interviews ensures that there is an accurate record of their responses and the questions that were asked of them by investigators. Not only does this protect the child, but also avoids miscarriages of justice by overzealous government officials.
The bills PASSED 91-18, 92-17 & 93-16
91 2/21/2018 HB 4321 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 4321 (Rep. Cox) $175 million in road funding for state, county, and local road agencies. EXPLANATION: This is leftover money from last year’s budget, and rather than letting it sit idle in an account, putting it towards roads is a good choice.
PASSED 109-0

EXPLANATION: If it is found that an individual has been falsely accused, then their record should be cleared.
All three bills PASSED 108-0
95 2/22/2018 HB 4053 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 4053 (Rep. Barrett) Designates English as the official language of Michigan. EXPLANATION: This is common-sense reform that will put Michigan in step with the 32 other states that have English as their official language. This legislation codifies current practice and encourages those in our state to be united as we all pursue the American dream through our common language.
PASSED 62-46
96 2/22/2018 HB 5190 Passage Yes I voted YES on HB 5190 (Rep. Sneller) Includes the Professional Golf Association Tour Champions Tournament for 2018-2020 in the list of events eligible to receive a special “national sporting event” liquor license. EXPLANATION: Allowing special liquor licenses for the PGA Tour Champions event at Warwick Hills in Grand Blanc is consistent with the issuance of such licenses for other past sporting events of national prominence.
