The House assembled at 2:00 p.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr., as follows:

Our thought for today is from 2 Chronicles 29:2: "He did what was right in the sight of the Lord, just as his ancestor David had done."

Let us pray. Lord, God, grant to these Representatives and staff the same mind and heart as Hezekiah, that they will do what is right and pleasing to you O Lord, and the people they serve. Grant them wisdom and strength to go forward with the mandate given to them as they serve the people of this State. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and these Representatives as they do the work of the people. Protect our defenders of freedom and first responders as they protect 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 prayer. 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.
