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 Psalm 19:1: "The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork."
Let us pray. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to You, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Thank You, O Lord, for Your guidance and protection this week. Grant us safe travel and rest from our duties. Bless our Nation, State, this Assembly, and all who support us in our duties and responsibilities. Protect our defenders of freedom as they protect us. Heal the wounds of our brave warriors, those seen and those hidden. Hear us, O Lord. Amen.
