The House assembled at 10:00 A.M.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by the Chaplain of the House of Representatives, the Rev. Dr. Alton C. Clark as follows:
O God our Creator and Judge, we beseech You to forgive those wrongs which so easily beset us: our squandering of natural resources, our desecration of our beauty in nature, our heedlessness of scars left to those who shall come after us, our carelessness of small things in our pursuit after the spectacular, our often indifference to the needs of others. Send to us Your light and Your truth to heal, cleanse, renew us as we hear and heed the words from the Book of Proverbs: "Keep your heart with diligence; for out of it are the issues of life" - Proverbs 2:23
Through our Lord Who is the Source of all wisdom, we humbly and thankfully pray.
