Flags in Pennsylvania to fly at half-staff in Scalia’s honor

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Gov. Wolf has ordered U.S. and Commonwealth flags at the Capitol Complex and at all state facilities to fly at half-staff to honor the late Supreme Court Justice Antonio Scalia.

Scalia, who served three decades on the nation’s highest court, died Saturday at a resort ranch in West Texas.

The governor’s proclamation said flags will remain at half-staff until interment.

President Barack Obama has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff at federal buildings throughout the nation and at U.S. embassies and military installations throughout the world.
