Rep. Mike Harris, right, joins a press conference calling on the House of Representatives to adopt a bipartisan resolution standing with Israel and condemning the Hamas terrorist attacks.
State Rep. Mike Harris is backing a bipartisan measure that reaffirms support for Israel after terrorists attacked the nation this month.
Harris, R-Waterford, on Wednesday joined his colleagues in calling for approval of House Resolution 146, which condemns the Hamas terrorist attacks against Israel. Those attacks have killed more than 1,300 people, including at least 30 Americans. The resolution also calls for Hamas to release the hundreds of people it has taken hostage.
“Hateful terrorists have murdered, abused, and kidnapped innocent people in Israel, and Michigan must stand with America’s close ally against the evils of Hamas,” Harris said. “This bipartisan resolution clearly and loudly condemns the horrific acts of terrorism and demands that Hamas release the hostages they’ve taken. This tragedy has deeply affected our state and the many Michiganders with ties to Israel. The House of Representatives should join together, denounce terrorism, and show our support for Israel in their hour of tragedy.”
The Michigan Senate passed a bipartisan resolution supporting Israel and condemning Hamas earlier Wednesday, and Harris expressed hope that the House would quickly do the same.
“With emails, sales, banking transactions, and more all happening over the internet, it’s important to follow smart internet security practices,” said Harris, R-Waterford.
“Scheduling special elections on irregular dates will cost local governments in Metro Detroit, and the chaos of overlapping voting periods will heap burdens on local clerks, the area residents who work the polls, and voters,” Harris said.
“Dark days are ahead for Michiganders under these backwards new laws that will prematurely ditch reliable natural gas power plants and require vastly more wind and solar,” said Harris, R-Waterford.
