JOURNAL OF THE SENATE

Tuesday, March 29, 2016

The Senate was called to order at 12: 58 p. m. , the President in the Chair.

The prayer was offered by the Deputy Chaplain, Reverend Bonita Grubbs of New Haven, Connecticut.

The following is the prayer:

O Holy One, I recognize Your authority

in this majestic space of debate and decision making

reserved for these esteemed officials who

will exercise the authority given to them

by those who elected them to serve;

recognizing that in the times in which we live,

all around us are perils, uncertainty, trials and worries,

and the tasks at hand are both awesome and difficult, I ask for

Your peace to prevail

and Your justice to roll down like waters.

Help these elected officials to maintain,

in the words of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King,

a tough mind

and a tender heart,

enough to make honorable choices

and to remember those who are most vulnerable

in the midst of the search for a fair budget

that involves many competing interests,

pressures from all possible directions,

from the right and from the left,

from the front and from the back,

from within and without.

Give them the wisdom to

accept the things they cannot change, in the words of the late Reinhold Niebuhr,

and the peace to change the things that they cannot accept, in the words of the late Elsie Cofield.

Be with their families,

give them safe travel on the roads,

by day and late at night.

In Your name, by Your grace, with Thanksgiving. Amen.

PLEDGE

Senator Martin of the 31st led the Senate in the Pledge of Allegiance.
