Pursuant to U.S. Code (4 U.S.C. 7m), the United States flag should be flown at half-staff beginning immediately for 30 days due to the death of former President George H.W. Bush.
The state flag of Arkansas is to be flown at half-staff in the same manner.
Governor Asa Hutchinson today released the following statement on the passing of former President George H.W. Bush:
Last night the world witnessed the passing of someone we all considered our friend. It was always the personal touch of George H.W. Bush with so many Americans. I remember the notes he would write after a campaign visit to Arkansas in 1986; the hug he gave to encourage me and others after his defeat for a second term; the patriotic tears he might shed when he learned of the sacrifice and courage of our soldiers; and the love he always had for his family. All Americans can identify with the heart of a man we watched serve our country from WWII to the liberation of Kuwait. Susan and I will be remembering the Bush family as we all reflect on a friend and great American patriot."
U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement on the passing of former President George H.W. Bush:
“George H.W. Bush was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and public servant who spent a lifetime answering his nation’s call to service. His love of country and example of faithful civic duty are standards we should all strive to meet. His legacy will continue to inspire future generations to serve the same great cause. My thoughts and prayers are with the Bush family, friends and our country as we remember this great American leader.”
