Journal of the Senate

SECOND REGULAR SESSION


FIFTY-NINTH DAY--THURSDAY, APRIL 20, 2000


The Senate met pursuant to adjournment.

President Pro Tem Quick in the Chair.

The Reverend Carl Gauck offered the following prayer:

Psalm 68: 19-20: "Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation. Our God is a God of salvation, and to God, the Lord, belongs escape from death."

Redeemer God, help us to look at this weekend more than an extra Monday off, but a time for family and hearing the promise of life after death and the renewal of life that helps us celebrate the gifts of love and being alive fully with each other. In a week that remembers the violent deaths of men, women and children; in Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado, it is good to know You are the giver of life eternal. So we pray, burst forth the flames of our faith once again so that we may live each day as Your servants knowing the hope that life in You continues forever. Amen.

The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag was recited.

A quorum being established, the Senate proceeded with its business.
