Indicates Matter Stricken
Indicates New Matter
The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer as follows:
Eternal God, Who has spoken to Your people at creation, from Mt. Sinai and from the Light at Bethlehem, speak to us Your truths for our present age. Grant to us clean thoughts and words and worthy motives. And since this new day is an unearned gift from Your good and gracious hand, enable us to use each moment of it well. Lead us as we evaluate options, reconcile differences. Keep us from wasting time on the wrong things or on things that do not matter. From the beginning of this day to the end of it help us fervently "to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with our God." Look with favor, Lord, upon this our prayer offered in thanksgiving. Amen.
At 10:10 a.m. the House in accordance with the ruling of the SPEAKER adjourned to meet at 12:00 noon, Tuesday, March 20.
