Indicates Matter Stricken
Indicates New Matter

The House assembled at 12:00 noon.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr., as follows:

Our thought for today is from Psalm 16:1: "Protect me, O God, for I take refuge in you; I say to the Lord, 'I have no good apart from you.'"

Let us pray. O Lord, our God, thank You for caring enough for us that You protect us and keep us free. Open our hearts to embrace the mission opportunities You lay before us. As these Representatives continue to look for ways to enhance the good life You have given to us as Your children, please keep us always in Your love and care. Look in favor upon our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who work for the people of this State. Protect our first responders and those who defend us at home and abroad. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our women and men who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.

Pursuant to Rule 6.3, the House of Representatives was led in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America by the SPEAKER.

After corrections to the Journal of the proceedings of Friday, the SPEAKER ordered it confirmed.

STATEMENT FOR THE JOURNAL

Members of the House, I would like to make you aware of the passing of one of our great South Carolinians, Watson Dorn of Greenwood. Watson was my former partner and mentor. He served in WWII and served as campaign manager for his brother and former Congressman Bryan Dorn. He practiced law in my Greenwood district for over 60 years with distinction and will be sorely missed.
