Indicates New Matter
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 Matthew 11:28: "Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
Let us pray. Thank You heavenly Father for the blessings You have given during this week. Make Your presence known to us as we are weary and need Your blessings to give us rest. Strengthen us to respond to the duties given to each of us in service to the people of this State. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, Representatives and staff. Keep our defenders of freedom safe in Your care. In the name of our Lord, we pray. Amen.
