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 Father, Who opens to us the gates of the morning and calls us to a new day, we commit our efforts to You in the confident knowledge that You are with us. As we seek what is best for our fellow-beings, when so much is demanded of us, grant us a double portion of insight and inspiration that together with confidence and courage we may prove ourselves worthy of the tasks placed in our hands.
Confronted by challenges too great for us to solve by ourselves we come to You for wisdom to see what needs to be done, for courage to set out to do it, and for strength to complete it.
In the spirit of our Savior we pray. Amen.
