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 41: "I have chosen you and not cast you off; do not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraid for I am your God."
Let us pray. Dear Lord and Father of us all, we give You thanks for the many blessings and favors You have given to us. You have chosen us to do the responsible task placed before us. Protect us from all harm and strengthen us for continued service to You and to the people of this State. Help us to remember You are always with us. Continue Your blessings upon our Nation and her leaders. Bless our State, Governor, Speaker, and all who labor in these Halls of Government. Protect our defenders of freedom at home and abroad as they protect us. Hear us, O Lord, as we pray. Amen.
