TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - An order to fly flags at half-staff in honor of late Sen. Dole has been extended through sunset on Saturday.

President Joe Biden says in a news release that he has extended the display of the American flag at half-staff as a mark of respect for late Senator Robert Dole.

The President said he extended the proclamation from sunset on Dec. 9 to sunset on Saturday, Dec. 11.

Kansas Governor Laura Kelly said later on Thursday, in accordance with Executive Order 20-30 and the president’s proclamation, she has amended her own flag order.

Gov. Kelly said American flags should be flown at half-staff throughout the Sunflower State until midnight on Dec. 11. She said the extension is in honor of the late senator.
