For Texas Only
The State of Texas lost a distinguished leader with the passing of former Governor Mark White today. As a mark of respect for his public service, it is fitting that flags in Texas be lowered to half-staff.
Therefore, pursuant to Chapter 3100 of the Texas Government Code and 4 U.S.C. § 7, I do hereby direct the lowering of all Texas and United States flags to half-staff in memory of Governor Mark White. Flags throughout the state should be at half-staff from sunrise on Sunday, August 6, 2017, until sunset on Thursday, August 10, 2017, and again on the day of his interment once it has been determined by his family. Please notify all pertinent personnel within your agency and other state agency leaders of this directive.
Individuals, businesses, municipalities and other political subdivisions and entities are encouraged to fly their flags at half-staff for the same length of time in memory for this deserving public servant.
Our prayers of comfort are extended to Linda Gale and the White family in their time of grief. I urge all Texans to appropriately remember Governor White’s life of service to the State of Texas.
