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:
Eternal God, Who has created us with minds to think, hearts to love, and wills to choose the right, we bow before this altar of prayer in praise and thanksgiving. Guide and direct us this day and every day that our actions may be just and fair and kind. May our burdens not be too heavy, our tasks not too demanding and our trials not to discouraging. May Your wisdom guide us, Your mercy forgive us, and Your love inspire us. Enable us to hear and heed the words of the psalmist: "Unless the Lord build the house, those who build it labor in vain." Amen.
