Austin, Texas 78711
Dear State Agency Leader:
The United States of America has lost a longtime member of Congress with the passing of Senator Edward M. Kennedy. As a mark of respect for this widely regarded leader, it seems fitting that flags in Texas be lowered immediately to half-staff.
Therefore, acting pursuant to Chapter 3100 of the Texas Government Code, I do hereby direct the immediate lowering of all State of Texas and United States flags under control of the State to half-staff in memory of the Honorable Edward M. Kennedy. State of Texas and United States flags throughout Texas should remain at half-staff today and tomorrow and lowered again on the date of interment once it is set by the family.
The First Lady and I extend our prayers of comfort to his family in their time of grief, and urge all Texans to remember and honor his life of service to our nation.
