The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr. as follows:
Our thought for today is from Isaiah 55:2: "Why do you spend your money for what is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy?"
Let us pray. Gracious God, slow us down, help us to joyfully labor for You, and help us to trust that You will meet our needs. May we work with integrity and courage to fulfill our duties. Bless and preserve our State and Nation and provide wisdom to our leaders. Defend our troops from harm and keep them safe. Comfort those who wait at home. In the name of our Lord. Amen.
