Michigan orders restaurants to collect customers' information amid COVID-19 surges

Earlier this week, Speaker Chatfield and Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey reached out to the Governor in hopes she would work with both houses to combat any future COVID-19 surges. Once again, the Governor had decided she will make all the decisions.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is now stating that businesses can only have 50 people max indoors. Regardless of the venue's capacity and building size. The WHO (World Health Organization) recently changed their minds regarding lockdowns stating that they do not work.

Our office has fielded several calls from concerned business owners since March. MDHHS is now directing restaurant and bar owners to take down customers' personal information for contact tracing. We recently won a decision in the Michigan Supreme Court, stopping this type of government overreach.

I'm afraid I have to disagree with this decision because there was no legislative input, and there is still a lack of transparency.

Michigan restaurants will have to begin tracking the names and numbers of customers in case of COVID-19 outbreaks under a policy announced Thursday

University of Michigan’s Victors for Veterans at VINA

ATTENTION VETERANS

The University of Michigan School of Dentistry is partnering with VINA to establish its second Victors for Veterans clinic in the state under the direction of Dr. Howard A. Hamerink. The program, funded by the Michigan Dental Association Foundation, provides free dental care and education. To qualify, your income must be 200% or less of the Federal Poverty Line (FPL) and you must be a resident of one of these seven counties: Livingston, Genesee, Shiawassee, Washtenaw, Jackson, Ingham and Oakland.

Victors for Veterans begins on October 23, 2020. VINA will host University of Michigan Dental School interns and faculty dentists to provide dental care to veterans twice a month at the clinic. The interns and faculty dentists generously donate their time to the program.

Free services for those registered in the clinic include full exams, extractions, and oral surgery, root canals, fillings, dentures, crowns, bridges, and more. The program will also refer patients to specialists, as needed, for specialty procedures donated by the University of Michigan School of Dentistry and local dental specialists.

House approves Mueller plan extending time to renew licenses and registrations

The Secretary of State has been overwhelmed with renewal requests during Covid-19 and has been unable to keep up due to offices being closed during this time.

Now that the power has been restored between Michigan's legislative and executive branches, legislators from both sides of the aisle came together to unanimously pass much-needed legislation to ensure that people are not punished for being unable to renew their licenses and documents.

House Bills 5756-57 and 6192 extend the validity of vehicle registrations, driver licenses, and state identification cards that expired after March 2020 and waive the late fees.

I would like to thank Representative Jack O'Malley and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson for working together for the people of Michigan. I would further like to thank Senator Jeremy Moss, who assisted with this legislation early on during the pandemic

State Rep. Mike Mueller’s plan to extend the time Michigan drivers have to renew their licenses and vehicle registrations was approved with unanimous bipartisan support today by the Michigan House.

When I heard the arrest of members of a radical group planning on kidnapping and causing harm to our governor I was saddened by how divided our country has become with hate.

I would like to thank all of the law enforcement agents who helped insure the safety of our governor.

Although we may disagree strongly on issues, we must always show compassion, understanding and mutual respect. Hoping harm, sickness or death on anyone is unacceptable.

People need to realize that Governor Whitmer is a mother, wife and daughter. We as Michiganders need to be leaders during this critical time in our country’s history and not perpetuate more division.

Radical ideology from both sides is detrimental to our country and does not represent the views of most Americans.

Let’s put people over politics and policy over personality.

Schools, local governments remain fully funded despite tight budget year

I am pleased to report that the governor supported this bipartisan plan and signed it into law on Sept. 30. We were able to work together to fund schools and local governments without raising taxes. We should have been taking this same bipartisan approach during the pandemic.

I am pleased to report that the governor supports this bipartisan-supported plan and signed it into law on Sept. 30. When we work together, we can accomplish great things for the people of Michigan.

The Michigan Supreme Court just ruled in favor of the Legislature in our lawsuit. We are still waiting on details as to what this means.

The court ruled unanimously that the Governor did not have the authority under the 1976 Act to continue issuing executive orders related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Further, the court ruled 4-3 that the Governor does not have authority to issue emergency orders under the 1945 Act, as it unlawfully delegates legislative power to the executive branch, which violates the Michigan constitution.

09/23/2020

Despite the many challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, we approved a budget today in overwhelming bi-partisan fashion that protects and maintains investments in what matters most to Michigan families and taxpayers – without growing state government and without raising taxes.

Michigan taxpayers want a state government that respects their hard work and sacrifices while investing in what matters most to them, and we accomplished just that.

One of the greatest aspects of this agreement is that we were able to invest even more into our K-12 schools and local communities. Just a few months ago, we were hearing that cuts of almost $700 per student were inevitable. I'm proud to say that we were actually able to increase overall per-pupil funding by $65 per student, and the K-12 budget as a whole from $15.3 billion to $15.5 billion. We also were able to hold local communities completely harmless from cuts, and invested $20 million for more PPE which will allow us to continue re-opening the economy.

There are still many challenges ahead, but this was a great first step in getting Michigan back on track.

Emerging Disease Issues - Why am I not able to opt-out of EEE aerial treatment this year?

My office has received numerous inquiries regarding the scheduled aerial spraying for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).

Last year, municipalities had the ability to opt-out of aerial treatment. This year, however, the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) has issued an emergency rule temporarily amending the rule for notification and participation for community pesticide applications for aerial treatment across affected counties. This means communities cannot opt-out of aerial spraying this year, and the Legislature does not have input in the decision.

The Emergency Powers of the Governor Act (PA 302 of 1945) was never intended to be used this way, and it must be repealed immediately. The taxpayers of this state have lost their ability to hold their elected officials accountable so long as a governor has the ability to unilaterally control every action of this state. The Court of Appeals' and the Governor’s interpretation of the law renders the entire Legislature useless and that sets a very dangerous precedent. It should be concerning to everyone regardless of who is in control.

We must return to the legislative process immediately so that Michiganders can have their voice back. I hope the Supreme Court recognizes the importance of separation of powers, and I hope the public will continue to speak out against the unconstitutional ruling as we take this fight to the Supreme Court.

I am sharing the words of Speaker Lee Chatfield from a few days ago because I could not agree more:

"The Court of Appeals got it wrong today.

They ruled that as long as a sitting Governor is genuine in their belief that there’s an emergency, they can take over complete, unilateral control over a state for as long as he or she decides. They ruled that constitutional provisions such as checks and balances and separation of powers no longer exist. This decision is incredibly dangerous, begins a terrible precedent and is blatantly unconstitutional.

This ruling effectively allows a future governor to declare a public health emergency over abortion and take over the state for as long as he or she decides without any checks on power. This ruling effectively allows a future governor to declare a public health emergency over illegal immigration and take over the state for as long as he or she decides without any checks on power. This ruling effectively allows a future governor to declare a public health emergency over climate change and take over the state for as long as he or she decides without any checks on power.

Our constitution is clear, and separation of powers is real. Our constitution and the rights secured within it do not evaporate based on the judgment of one person alone. This isn’t about Republican or Democrat. It’s about our system of government that’s being trampled over.

We will now go to the Michigan Supreme Court."

I am extremely disappointed in our Governor’s most recent Executive Order. There is no data or rationale that supports imposing further limitations on the Upper Peninsula and norther counties, while opening casinos in Detroit (the epicenter of the virus in Michigan).

While new cases and deaths remain very low in northern Michigan, our Governor still refuses to halt the transfer of positive COVID-19 patients to our nursing homes where almost half of our COVID-19 deaths have occurred. Instead of addressing the problems where they actually are, it appears our Governor is playing politics with this situation.

I do believe all businesses should be able to open with proper safety measures, casinos included, however this decision will only serve to unnecessarily hurt Michigan citizens and businesses.

There is a reason our Legislature has 110 Representatives and 38 Senators - to ensure every citizen has a voice. Unfortunately, our Governor vetoes nearly every COVID-19 related piece of legislation we introduce, completely ignoring the voice of the people. This why the courts must stop dragging their feet and give us a ruling on the Governor’s unconstitutional emergency powers immediately.

House approves Mueller decriminalization plan reducing penalties for low-level crimes

Last week, the House approved my plan to reduce penalties for driving on a suspended, revoked, or denied license by a vote of 105-2.

Specifically, HB 5802 would reduce penalties for first and second-time offenses from a misdemeanor to a civil infraction.

"When someone can’t afford to pay a parking or speeding ticket, their license gets suspended, and from there it just takes one run-in with the law for them to get arrested,” said Mueller, a retired sheriff’s deputy. “I’ve seen it happen countless times. Good citizens end up wrapped up in the criminal justice system, go to jail, or even lose their jobs, simply because they couldn’t afford to pay a ticket. There’s no need to waste taxpayer dollars and jam up law enforcement and the courts on minor offenses like these. They have much bigger issues to worry about.”

The plan will still carry a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment up to 93 days and/or a fine of up to $500 if the individual’s license was suspended due to dangerous driving activity such as operating while intoxicated, reckless driving, or a violation that causes the injury, death, or serious impairment of another individual.

Law enforcement will also still have the ability to impound vehicles.

This plan will reduce jail intake, which in turn saves tax payers dollars. It will also continue to hold people accountable, but allow them to continue working so they have the ability to pay their fees and stay out of jail.

The state House of Representatives has approved Rep. Mike Mueller’s plan to re-examine the penalties for driving with a suspended, revoked, or denied license in Michigan.

I wanted to take a moment to clear up some confusion regarding some budget action we took in Lansing today.

I've received several calls and e-mails from constituents because there is word the Governor cut funding to the Michigan State Police (MSP) and the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC). This is not the case.

We reached an agreement with Governor Whitmer today and made numerous cuts to multiple departments to close the roughly $3 billion budget shortfall for the current fiscal year. About $500 million was cut from the MSP and MDOC budgets and was backfilled entirely by federal coronavirus relief funds. These federal dollars have restricted uses and this plan will allow us to be more flexible with our spending during this crisis. Again, MSP and MDOC will NOT see a reduction in funding.

Will you condemn the attempted act of terrorism directed at our governor? Or will you remain silent and thus, complicit?
Good morning, Thank you for taking the time to read this email. I am a single mother from Holly who has been working in the hospital systems for a decade, and I am reaching out to you to ask you to please hear the people through emails such as this. With Governor Whitmer's unconstitutional executive orders facing cancellation, we need the Legislature to act quickly to prohibit local governments attempting to impose mask orders themselves. Even if these orders were intended to protect the public health (which they are not), public health is not the role of local government, and local ordinances would create a patchwork of inconsistent rules that no citizen could be reasonably expected to know and follow. Please call on Rep. Jason Sheppard to hold hearings on and pass Representative John Reilly's legislation as quickly as possible to protect the public from irresponsible municipalities.
Is there any talk about the ridiculous wait time for appts at the Secretary of State offices? I need to change my address, which I can’t do online due to having an enhanced license. My appt is Dec. 28! 😳. I am concerned on how this will affect my ability to vote. Why is this allowed? They could extend hours, open extra days, or other offices. I find this unacceptable!
Mike I was wondering who I contact because all of a suddenly my unemployment is being denied while I'm on furlough at UofM flint. They approved first week and denied me the second week. I go back to work at the end of August. Please direct me in the right direction please.
I would like to know what is going on with this governor's executive order on mask! If things to shut her down soon,then we will have to get people in there that will!! Need answers please!
Can you explain why you voted yes on HB5762 that includes section 3 which says that you can be 'microchipped' if required by a court order as a condition of your employment?? This is a direct violation of OUR constitutional rights. "An employer may, as a condition of employment, as a condition of employment in a particular position, or as a condition of receiving additional compensation or other benefits, require an employee or prospective employee to comply with a court order that directs the employee or prospective employee to take an action described in subsection (1). [Subsection (1) includes having to:] (a) Implant, or undergo a procedure to implant, a device in the employee's or prospective employee's body. (b) Inject, or receive an injection of, a device into the employee's or prospective employee's body. (c) Ingest, inhale, or otherwise incorporate a device into the employee's or prospective employee's body."
Redistribute the money. If teachers and schools are more enabled, that at is what will help PREVENT crime.
Nope. Police don’t need funding for this. They need to be fired and imprisoned for war crimes and their pensions paid to their victims.
Is this your area?
First of I'd like to say good job, haven't had to sick yur dad on ya HAHAHAHA. Ok reason I'm writing is I saw this on a forum I go to everyday I can. http://www.indianaopenwheel.com/showthread.php?s=e80757a20f320f84ad621658ec72a513&t=113325 I am taking a stand for all race fans in MI, I see it everyday on my FB page. We see places like salons, barber shops - small businesses being shut down. But the big places stay open Walmart, Home Depot & so on. Yeah I heard HD only lets a few in at a time, & Menards requires mask. But this a Disease we stand a 1% chance of getting & a 99% cure rate. Read back in late 80's in USA TODAY paper the 2 NASCAR races at Daytona was estimated to bring in 25 million dollars. Racing is big in MI believe we have 57 some tracks in this state alone. Anyways just a FYI, keep up the good work 2 thumbs up
Thank you to you and your office staff for returning my call promptly today and helping me with my unemployment! That’s working for the people and I appreciate it very much!
Mike, can you give us your thoughts on the governors speech today, please? Can she extend the stay at home order without the support of the house and senate, and if so, will she receive that support? Any insight you can give would be appreciated.
