Colorado Governor Jared Polis has ordered flags to remain lowered at half-staff on all public buildings through midnight Saturday night, December 11, 2021, to honor the life and legacy of Senator Bob Dole as proclaimed today by President Biden.
The full text of the President’s proclamation reads:
By the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to extend the display of the flag at half-staff as a mark of respect for Robert Joseph Dole, it is hereby ordered that Proclamation 10320 of December 3, 2021, is amended by deleting in the first sentence the words "until sunset on December 9, 2021" and inserting in their place the words "through Saturday, December 11."
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this ninth day of December, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-sixth.
JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR.
