Bill directs $28 million for Flint

The Senate recently took quick action to help address the current water emergency in Flint and help ensure the health of the city's residents. Along with an earlier $9 million appropriation to return the city to the Detroit water system, the Senate approved $28 million in immediate state aid to:

  • Supply free bottled water, faucet filters, and testing kits for Flint residents;
  • Put nine nurses in local schools to monitor student health and well-being;
  • Provide better nutrition for students and infants through WIC and in-school nutrition programs;
  • Replace fixtures in schools, daycare facilities and nursing homes;
  • Provide for an infrastructure study using independent experts;
  • Treat any children who have high lead levels in the blood, using diagnostic testing, nurse visits and
  • environmental assessments in the home; and
  • Help the city of Flint relieve residents of water bill payments.

The funding will help meet critical needs and recovery efforts as the focus turns to long-term reforms and solutions. The Senate also adopted a resolution to extend the state emergency declaration in Flint until April 14 to continue providing resources to protect public health and safety.

MacGregor supports legislation to protect motorists

Driving under the influence of a controlled substance is just as dangerous as drunk driving. I recently supported legislation to crack down on drugged drivers.

Senate Bills 207 and 434 would create a pilot program in five counties to allow law enforcement officers certified as drug recognition experts to conduct roadside testing of the use of controlled substances. Drivers who are stopped under reasonable cause would have their saliva tested for the presence of cannabis, opiates, cocaine and methamphetamine. The procedure is similar to that of a breathalyzer test for alcohol.

The legislation, prompted by a tragic accident caused by a drugged driver, has been sent to the House for consideration.

Tips to prevent auto theft

Motor vehicle thefts happen year-round with nearly half of the thefts occurring when the keys are left in the ignition or a door is left unlocked.

Along with keeping your doors locked, Michigan's Automobile Theft Prevention Authority (ATPA) advises motorists to keep a close eye on the vehicle if you leave it running to warm up during our cold winter weather. The agency also encourages motorists to avoid leaving valuables in the vehicle.

In the mid-1980s, Michigan had the highest auto theft rate in the nation. The ATPA - a collaborative effort of law enforcement, communities and business - was formed in 1986 to help reduce vehicle thefts in the state.

I am deeply saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Michael Young. Serving 20 years as Rockford City Manager, Michael was a dedicated and enthusiastic public servant. The Rockford Community lost a talented and thoughtful leader this week. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and the City of Rockford. He will be sorely missed.

Rockford city manager has died
Michael Young suffered a stroke Monday, Jan. 25.

It was my pleasure to welcome Reverend Paul Pratt, of the First Reformed Church in Grandville, and his wife, Patty, to the Senate this morning. Reverend Pratt delivered the invocation before session.
