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 8:1: "O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth."
Let us pray. O Lord, You have provided us with another day to fulfill the work You have called us to do. May we do this labor in love and concern for our fellow human beings and the welfare of this State. Continue to look in favor upon our leaders and give them wisdom. Protect our troops and keep them in Your care. Hear us as we pray. Amen.
