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 Jeremiah 1:19: "They shall fight against you; but they shall not prevail against you, for I am with you, says the Lord, to deliver you."
Let us pray. Faithful God, help us to know that You are always beside us, no matter what trials we face. Guard us from all dangers that may harm us and grant us Your peace in our work and in our rest. Blessings and grace be upon our Nation, State, and all those who lead us. Protect our defenders of freedom at home and abroad as they protect us. In the Name of our Lord. Amen.
