    can break down walls of separation and bring unity.  Your

    issues troubling their minds, weighty matters--let them be                                      
    lifted from them right now.  Bring answers quickly, Lord, and                                   
    work out the details.  Let the concerns of the day be dealt with                                
    easily.  Bless their labors now, Lord.

Representative Berkowitz moved and asked unanimous consent that                                     
Amendment No. 1 be adopted.                                                                         
                                                                                                    
Representative Rokeberg objected and rose to a point of order stating                               
that the amendment was out of order under Rule 35 of the Uniform                                    
Rules.                                                                                              
                                                                                                    
The Speaker stated that he would allow Amendment No. 1 to be                                        
considered.                                                                                         
                                                                                                    
Representative Rokeberg moved the previous question.
