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 Mark 1:27: "What is this? A new teaching - with authority!"

Let us pray. Essential Lord, remind us that You are the fresh, exciting authority for our life. Lead these Representatives and staff to respond immediately to the call of doing the work ascribed to them. Continue Your blessings on them this week as they do great things for this State and her people. Fill us with Your presence, so that we may share what You have given. Protect and bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who contribute to the success of this great cause. Protect and defend our first responders and those who defend us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our women and men as they 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.
