Journal of the House


First Regular Session, 93rd General Assembly




SECOND DAY, Thursday, January 6, 2005

 

The House met pursuant to adjournment.


            Speaker Jetton in the Chair.


            Prayer by Father David Buescher.


              Gracious Father, creator of human society, yesterday these men and women bound themselves together here to thank You for the tasks at hand, to ask Your guidance and provision, and to promise honesty and integrity. They have been preparing for months for this blessed responsibility. On Your part, make Your covenant with them to be with them in all the affairs of this House, today and all days – the ups and downs, the agreements and disagreements, the victories and losses, the joys and the wounds.


              Let Your civility reign profoundly in these hearts in respect and fair play, Your wisdom work through them uncovering new ways to manage difficult times. Let reason be as Your hand to navigate through all negotiations. We stand conscious of Your uniting and empowering presence in the body, mind, and soul of this august assembly. Amen.


            The Pledge of Allegiance to the flag was recited.


            The Journal of the first day was approved as corrected by the following vote:
