(KCAU) – Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota have ordered their state flags to be lowered to half-staff on Saturday in honor of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The governors of Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota are acting in accordance with President Trump’s proclamation to lower all United States flags.

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

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dedicated her life to passionately serving her country through the law. From caring for her family while working her way through law school to reaching the highest court in our land, she blazed a trail that inspires others to answer the call to serve. Her life of service deserves the utmost respect and admiration. My thoughts go out to her family and all who have been touched by the legacy she leaves behind.

Susanne and I send our thoughts and prayers to the Ginsburg family. We honor Justice Ginsburg for her decades of public service and tireless devotion to her vocation.

(Nebraska) Gov. Pete Ricketts
