Senate will come to order. Sergeant of Arms close the door. Members go to their seats. Members and guests in the gallery please silence all electronic devices. Leading the senate in prayer is Reverend Peter ??, Senate Chaplain. All members and guests in the gallery will please stand. [SPEAKER CHANGE] Please pray with me. Lord as we bow our heads, we first want to give you thanks and praise. Ignite these prayers with your spirit, otherwise they're just words. Help us today, rescue from darkness, place us into your light. Come Lord, you have set this time for us, the rotation of the stars and the movement of the galaxies. All we do is just chaff without your every enduring and persistent presence. Give this body for the long journey ahead. Encourage to do good work. Bless us today, Lord Jesus and it is in your name that we pray. Amen. [SPEAKER CHANGE] Senator Pate is recognized for a motion. [SPEAKER CHANGE] Thank you, Mr. President. The journal of Wednesday, February 4th, 2015 has been examined and is found to be correct. I move that the senate dispense with the reading of the journal and it stand approved as written.
