Senate will come to order. Sergeant at arms close the doors. Members will go to their seats. Rule 17 is suspended until the end of the session. Leading the Senate in prayer, the Reverend Peter Milner, Senate Chaplain. All members and guests in the gallery will please stand. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Let's pray. Lord today we need your blessing. Like Jacob gave to his twelve children, we need your blessing. We come to you and remember what you said through Aaron. Lord bless you, the Lord keep you, and the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you his peace. And certainly Lord we need that peace in the midst of a violent and strife-torn world. But your love prospers us here, and we ask you for that love and that blessing today. In Christ's name, Amen. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Rabin is recognized for a motion.
