Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all flags in Iowa to be lowered to half-staff immediately until midnight tonight in honor and remembrance of U.S. Representative Jim Hagedorn of Minnesota. Representative Hagedorn died on February 17, 2022, at the age of 59 from cancer.  

The governor’s order is issued in conjunction with President Joe Biden’s proclamation to lower the United States’ flag to half-staff.   

Flags will be at half-staff on the State Capitol Building and on flag displays in the Capitol Complex. Flags will also be half-staff on all public buildings, grounds and facilities throughout the state.  

Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are encouraged to fly the flags at half-staff for the same length of time.
