HARRISBURG, Pa. - Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf ordered commonwealth flags to fly at half-staff until Friday at sunset, according to a news release from the governor's office of communications.
The flags flying at half-staff on the Capitol Complex and throughout Lehigh County are to honor state Rep. Dan McNeill, 70, who passed away September 8, 2017.
McNeill represented the 133th Legislative District from 2013-17 in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
The United States flag should remain at full-staff during this tribute, the release states.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf said the state government has less than two weeks to end a budget stalemate before the state's battered credit rating gets another downgrade and he must delay more payments for lack of cash.Read More »
