Senate will come to order. Sargent arms will close the doors. Members will go to their seats. All members and guests in the gallery will please stand for our prayer. Let's pray. Dear Heavenly Father God, we give thanks to you God and we take comfort today God in your word that tells us where only 2 or 3 are gathered together in your name that you are in the midst also. God we give you thanks here in North Carolina for, while there is so much chaos going on in the world, that you have granted us a season of peace. Dear God we ask that you pour out your spirit, God, upon this state. That we may be at the forefront of insuring that your purpose comes forth in this earth. We ask for you to bless us today, God, as we move forward and as hopefully this session begins to come to an end. And we offer this prayer in the only authority given under heaven, the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Senator Stein is recognized for a motion. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Thank you Mr. President.
