The Senate assembled at 1:00 P.M., the hour to which it stood adjourned, and was called to order by the PRESIDENT.

A quorum being present, the proceedings were opened with a devotion by the Chaplain as follows:

In Proverbs, Chapter 8, it is presumably Wisdom who is speaking, and she declares:

"I love those who seek me, and those who seek me diligently find me."     (Proverbs 8:17)

Join me as we unite our hearts in prayer:

Holy God, we know that the greatest wisdom always comes to those who choose to follow, serve, and honor you. Be with each Senator in this Body as he exercises his wisdom today. May these leaders honor you through their debates and votes, and may the results of their decisions truly benefit the people of South Carolina. Indeed, O God, bless all of Your servants who labor throughout this State, as well as our troops around the globe and stateside. Help every one of us to serve wisely and faithfully. In Your loving name we pray, dear Lord.
Amen.

The PRESIDENT called for Petitions, Memorials, Presentments of Grand Juries and such like papers.
