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 67:7: "May God continue to bless us."
Let us pray. Gracious God, You have called these Representatives and staff to be a blessing to others. As we work together on the agenda, come to us with Your blessing. Provide comfort and protection on these, Your people. Give them rest and relaxation on this weekend and restore them for another week. Bless our defenders of freedom as they protect us. Look in favor upon our Nation President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who work to support this House. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our warriors who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord of mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
