“This is just the beginning,” said GNP executive director Shane Trejo. “We are scouring the country and finding the best bills that we need to bring to Michigan.”
“We are researching hundreds of bills, bringing the best ideas that have been introduced and passed in other states to Michigan. There is no reason not to act. This is how we show the public that we have the ideas to save our state as far-left extremists abuse power and destroy our freedom and prosperity,” he continued.
“These first 15 bills are just the start of a comprehensive agenda that will lead our state back to prominence. Some have already been introduced in Michigan in previous legislative sessions but need to be revived this year,” Trejo added.
Here are the initial 15 bill recommendations:
- Bill to ban sanctuary cities
A bill (MI HB6276 of 2022) to prohibit local units of government from enacting or enforcing any laws that further limits officers from working with federal officials regarding immigration status of an individual. Every immigration status “can be subject to removal for engaging in a wide variety of illegal activity, as specified in Federal Immigration Law”. Local units of government should not be allowed to abuse their entrusted power in order to create sanctuaries for these types of criminal offenders—deliberately obstructing our country’s lawful immigration system, protecting serious criminal alien offenders, and undermining public safety. This legislation would stop all of that from occurring.
- Creating a compact between various states nullifying federal law and refusing to adhere to unconstitutional acts
A compact (MO HB1470 of 2016) would protect membership states’ sovereignty granted under Amendment X of the Constitution of the United States. Membership states would collectively formulate plans for restoring the primary responsibility of state and local governments on any specific issue, revoking federal law regarding issues deemed unconstitutional by members of the compact.
- Stopping Michigan national guardsmen from being deployed in undeclared wars https://legiscan.com/MI/text/hb4058/2022
This legislation (MI HB4058 of 2022) would amend Michigan State Code to prohibit the release of the Michigan National Guard into active duty combat without an official act of congress; therefore, defending the Michigan National Guard from fighting abroad unless officially declared under the U.S. Constitution. Under this amendment: Our guard will not be used for participation in armed conflict, hazardous service, conditions simulating war or instrumentality of war—except by official act of U.S. Congress.
- Removing the state from marriage ceremonies, returning marriage to a civil ceremony https://legiscan.com/NH/text/HB1596/2016
Marriage is a fundamental religious right, which makes it completely improper for the government to license and regulate this right. This proposed measure would make a marriage certificate the form of record to show that marriage has taken place, which would be returned to a civil ceremony, and no religious institution could be compelled to perform any marriage against their will. (Example: NH HB1596 of 2016)
- House Bills 4392 and 4386, sponsored by state Reps. Ann Bollin (R-Brighton) and Tyrone Carter (D-Detroit), would subject the governor and lieutenant governor’s offices to FOIA requests.
These bills call for the Governor and Lieutenant Governor of the state of Michigan to produce their records via the Freedom of Information Act. Michigan is only one of only two states where the executive branch is exempt from important FOIA requests to give information to the public. This would be a well overdo change for transparency to remove these senseless restrictions. Although Gov. Whitmer campaigned in 2018 on promises for FOIA reform, her actions have not shown this to be the case. This is why it is incumbent upon the state legislature to act on this measure.
- Demanding records for policy on nursing homes during COVID or other pandemics or emergencies
This is amending current law to release pertinent information regarding communicable diseases within long term health care facilities without infringing on residents right to privacy. As passed in Texas (TX SB930 2022), requesting the number of infected along with detailed facility information is crucial to accountability—whilst understanding and protecting residents’ risk. Having these statistics without the names or other personally-identifying information of residents protects their right to quality of end of life, while also protecting their privacy.
- Legislation defining a “catastrophe” or an “emergency” to not give bureaucrats an out from disclosing key information https://legiscan.com/TX/text/SB1225/2021
The recent pandemic has illuminated the necessity to explicitly define of what a “catastrophe” or “emergency” is when trying to obtain information that is crucial for holding government officials accountable, especially when they abuse “catastrophe” or “emergency” measures. This crucial legislation (TX SB1225 2021) has been introduced in Texas. These crises can otherwise be exploited by bureaucrats to consolidate power and keep the public in the dark about what they have done.
- Require training of poll workers and election officials while noting that impeding poll challengers is a felony, codify the rights of poll challengers, require poll workers wear name tags, provide due process for impeded poll challengers, and allow for poll challengers to video-record any incident that may be necessary for prosecution of infringement on their rights. https://legiscan.com/mi/text/hb4963/2022
A bill (MI HB4963 2022), initially pioneered by the Rescue Michigan Coalition, requiring identifying name tags and training of poll workers and officials for their incredibly important role in the integrity and fairness of the election process, which protects them from being vulnerable to operating with false or exploited information. Making sure that every vote is counted as the voter intended, poll workers and poll challengers work to strengthen our democracy. The very foundation of our democracy depends on election integrity; any attempt to stand in the way of that process should be able to be recorded for proof so the violator can be held accountable and face penalties. This legislation will accomplish just that.
- Prohibit Ballot Tabulators From Being Capable of Connecting to the Internet https://legiscan.com/mi/text/hb4964/2022
With an evolving technical world, provisions within MI HB4964 2022, initially pioneered by the Rescue Michigan Coalition, would protect the safety and integrity of our voting process. Most tabulators are alleged not to be equipped with internet capability; those that were have only recently been exposed in reports that have been widely ignored and suppressed in the mainstream. Enforcing that these ballot-tabulating computers should not be authorized to have internet capability protects the security, integrity, and privacy of our state’s voters.
- All absentee ballot signature verification is required to occur at announced public meetings where poll watchers and poll challengers can be present and video record the proceedings as long as they do not expose any ballots.
A significant increase in absentee ballots, paired with newly adopted proposal 22-2, leaves our election outcomes vulnerable to the subjective opinions of the often-biased hands and eyes of those verifying signatures on those ballots. Previously introduced MI HB 4952 2022, initially pioneered by the Rescue Michigan Coalition, would enforce that poll challengers and poll watchers are, and have always been, a very important part of strengthening the voting integrity process and deserve the same rights and privileges with regards to absentee ballots as they do at the in-person sites, including but not limited to signature verification.
- Interstate anti-corporate welfare compact:
Competition between states using incentives, ie. Crony handouts, to bring in large companies has not proven to be effective and is known to cost tens of billions of dollars. If states joined together in a compact (as outlined in MI HB 4971 of 2022) to stop this practice as a united front, we could be putting the resources into infrastructure and education that benefits everyone, rather than just the already wealthy companies. A compact between states would add value to the arrangement without placing one state at a disadvantage in the competitive arena.
- Bans vaccine passports and protects the explicit right to medical treatments during an emergency. https://legiscan.com/tx/text/sb968/2021
TX SB968 2021 was signed into law in Texas to protect people’s right to privacy regarding their health choices, making sure citizens are never required to present medical proof of treatment or care of any kind to anyone other than their chosen health care providers. It also allows patients who are not in immediate known danger to be bale to seek healthcare and procedures when needed to prevent further patient complications during an emergency or pandemic, if doing so does not take away from the resources needed for the emergency. This way, there will be no more open hospitals with bored nurses twerking while thousands of patients go without much-needed care, during a future so-called “emergency.”
- Declares religious services to be essential activities that cannot be stopped with emergency powers https://legiscan.com/MT/text/SB172/2021
MT SB172 2021, signed into law in Montana, makes sure religious services are considered essential services to the welfare of the people. Without this distinction, future emergencies declaring non-essential closings can takes away a person right to worship and makes the false assumption that religion, particularly that of the Christian faith, is not essential to them, impeding on their religious beliefs, rights, and well-being.
- Preventing face mask mandates https://legiscan.com/ND/text/HB1323/id/2375128
The very controversial debate over face mask mandates, as covered by 2021 ND HB1323, which explicitly bans state officials from mandating any facial covering for entry, education, or receiving of services. If a covering is recommended, there should also be provided notice that the recommendation is not mandatory, and there will be no denial of fundamental rights due to refusal to wear a face mask.
- Preventing government tracking, profiling or harvesting the private data of individuals forced under quarantine during a medical emergency https://legiscan.com/SD/text/SB3/id/2286593
South Dakota passed a law, SD SB3 2021, to protect the confidential information of a person if they are found to be infected with a contagious disease requiring quarantine to protect others’ safety. The possibility of discrimination against a person targeted by the regime as being unclean or suffering from a disease is very possible, and can be used in tandem with coercive vaccine mandates. This law would stop that process and give so-called protections during health emergencies.
