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 Father, Whose kindness is unlimited and Whose patience is infinite, hear us as we pray - not because we deserve it, but because of our deep need of Your help. So often we are burdened by things that do not matter, bewildered by problems of our own creation. Thank You for the gift of this another day with its opportunities. With vision and a lively faith, enable us to meet all the demands of this day in keeping with Your gracious and Fatherly will. For the well being of our country and for God's sake, help us to do the right thing. Amen.
