Governor Walz orders flags at half-staff in honor of Congressman Alcee Hastings

Governor Tim Walz has ordered all flags to be flown at half-staff at all state buildings in the state of Minnesota effective immediately until sunset on Wednesday, April 7, 2021, to remember, mourn, and honor the life of Congressman Alcee Hastings.

“I had the privilege of working alongside Congressman Hastings during the time we served together in the United States House of Representatives, and remember him fondly as a friend and former colleague,” said Governor Walz.

Minnesota joins states across the nation, in accordance with a proclamation issued by President Joe Biden, in lowering flags at half-staff in honor of the life of Congressman Hastings. Individuals, businesses, and other organizations are also encouraged to join in lowering their flags.
