Indicates Matter Stricken
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 Habakkuk 3:2: "I stand in awe, O Lord, of your work. In our own time revive it."
Let us pray. Mighty God, revive us daily with Your powerful spirit. When we have struggled with many problems and concerns, come to our aid, touch us with Your spirit, and set us upright again. Bless 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. In the name of our Lord. Amen.
