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 Psalm 98:1: "Sing to the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous things."
Let us pray. Gracious God, Your blessings are fresh every day. Refresh us at the end of our work week, that we may continue to work for the welfare of all people. Encourage us and help us to attain the best for others in whom we serve. Bless our National and State leaders in these times. Keep our defenders of freedom and especially those in harms way, in Your safe arms. Comfort those at home. Hear us as we pray. Amen.
