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 the Song of Solomon 8:7: "Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it."
Let us pray. Almighty God, direct us to love the Lord our God with all our might and to love those that surround us with the love shown to us. Keep us safe as we enter the end of the week. Grant us rest and relaxation to prepare us for another week of duty for the people of this State. Bless our Nation, State, and all our leaders and those who support them. Protect our defenders of freedom at home and abroad, as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors. Hear us, O Lord, as we pray. Amen.
After corrections to the Journal of the proceedings of yesterday, the SPEAKER ordered it confirmed.
