Indicates Matter Stricken
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 Samuel 23:2-4: "One who rules over people justly, ruling in the fear of God, is like the light of morning, like the sun rising on a cloudless morning."

Let us pray. Almighty God, we give thanks to You for the day and for these servants of the people of this State. Give them the wisdom, strength, courage, and integrity as they work to accomplish great things for the people, that they may enjoy the fruits of their labor. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and those who support them in their work. Protect our defenders of freedom and first responders as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors 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 yesterday, the SPEAKER ordered it confirmed.
