Flags to Fly at Half-Staff to Honor Congresswoman Jackie Walorski

 

LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts, in accordance with a request from the White House, announced that all U.S. and Nebraska flags are to be flown at half-staff to honor Congresswoman Jackie Walorski.

 

Walorski had represented Indiana’s 2nd District in the U.S. House of Representatives since January 2013.  She passed away this afternoon as the result of a car crash.
