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 50:4: "...that I may know how to sustain the weary with a word."
Let us pray. Free us, O Lord, to speak words that support and encourage those around us. Put into our minds and hearts the wisdom and strength to accomplish great things for others today. Give us a restful and nourishing weekend. Look in favor upon our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, this Honorable Assembly, and all who serve in these Halls of Government. Protect our defenders of freedom at home and abroad as they protect us. Hear our prayer, O Lord. Amen.
