RE: Flags at Half-Staff to Honor Victims of the Tragedy in Las Vegas
In honor and remembrance of the victims of the act of violence committed in Las Vegas during the late-night hours of October 1, 2017, I hereby direct the flags of the United States and the State of Florida to be flown at half-staff at all local and state buildings, installations, and grounds throughout the State of Florida. The flags shall be lowered immediately and remain at half-staff until the expiration of the President’s national directive until sunset on Friday, October 6, 2017.
