Salem, OR—Governor Kate Brown today ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions to remain at half-staff for one more day in honor and remembrance of Congressman Alcee Hastings of Florida. This action will change the previous order to raise flags to full-staff at sunset, today. Instead, flags should remain at half-staff until sunset, April 7.
"I am saddened to hear of Congressman Hastings' passing. He was a dedicated public servant who lived his life fighting for equal rights for all. Dan and I send our condolences to his family and friends."
A statement from President Biden is available on the White House’s website.
