Governor Sununu Directs Flags to Half-Staff in Honor of President George H.W. Bush

Pursuant to U.S. Code (4 U.S.C. 7m), Governor Chris Sununu has directed all flags on all public buildings and grounds in the State of New Hampshire to fly at half-staff for 30 days until sunset, December 31st.

"President George H.W. Bush was a friend to so many of us and his loss will undoubtedly be felt deeply across the Granite State. Quick with advice and always caring, the 41st President of the United States was a statesmen, a role model, and an American hero."
