Journal of the Senate

SECOND REGULAR SESSION


THIRTEENTH DAY--WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 28, 1998


The Senate met pursuant to adjournment.

President Pro Tem McKenna in the Chair.

The Chaplain offered the following prayer:

Our Father in Heaven, Mark Twain said, "One man's comma is another man's colon." We don't all see things alike. We are not interested in the same things. We don't have the same standards. We don't have the same religious beliefs. Lord, can we be faithful to You without agreeing with one another? Lord, help us to be faithful to what we believe without being unfaithful or unloving to our brother who believes something different. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag was recited.

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