Senate will come to order. Sergeant at arms, close the doors. Members go to their seats. Members and guests in the gallery, please silence all electronic devices. Leading the Senate in prayer is the Reverend Peter Milner, Senate Chaplain, all members and guests in the gallery, please stand. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Please pray with me. Lord, you are moving here, even tonight, in our hearts and in our minds and in our souls and we pray that you would move and direct us by the power of your holy spirit, empower us to do work that is pleasing to you and your sight and we pray for this week, that it would be a fun week, a challenging week, and that we would work together for the great state of North Carolina. And Jesus, it's in your name we pray. Amen. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Senator Hise is recognized for a motion.
