Indicates New Matter
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 Proverbs 9:10: "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."
Let us pray. Almighty God, help us to know Your way that we may choose what's best. As we accomplish the work You have chosen for us to do, inspire us to do the best we can. Grant us a peaceful and restful weekend and return refreshed for continued service to our State. Bless and keep our Nation, our President, our Governor, our State and her leaders. Protect and keep our defenders of freedom. Hear our prayer, O Lord. Amen.
