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 49:16: "See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hand."
Let us pray. Lord God, remind us that You never forsake Your children. You have blessed us beyond measure and we give You thanks for all the benefits bestowed on us. Bless us as we go into the weekend, give us rest and refreshment to begin another week of service to our State. Look in favor upon our Nation, State, and her leaders. Protect our defenders of freedom at home and abroad as they protect us. Hear us, O Lord, as we pray. Amen.
