Journal of the House


First Regular Session, 93rd General Assembly




SEVENTEENTH DAY, Thursday, February 3, 2005

The House met pursuant to adjournment.


            Speaker Jetton in the Chair.


            Prayer by Father David Buescher.


              The Hebrew Scriptures say, “The sun shines on the righteous and the unrighteous; God rains on the just and the unjust alike.”


              Bless the hours of work that these men and women do today with discernment as to rights and wrongs, to justice and injustice in all its forms.


              Like the fog this morning dissipating as the sun breaks through, so may all efforts in this great Hall, all the office business behind the scenes, the committee hearings, and even the routine in the lives of our representatives be executed in light and clarity. Amen.


            The Pledge of Allegiance to the flag was recited.


            The Speaker appointed the following to act as Honorary Pages for the Day, to serve without compensation: Tess Olson, Marcus Flemming, Ellissa Starr and Jacob Bickford.


            The Journal of the sixteenth day was approved as printed by the following vote:
