Rauner issues statement after Orlando shooting

Posted by wlpo on June 12, 2016

In the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting, Governor Bruce Rauner issued the following statement:

“It was heartbreaking to learn about the tragic massacre in Orlando, Florida. To target a community in celebration is deplorable. The state of Illinois stands with those in the State of Florida, and in honor of the victims, I am ordering all flags to half-staff immediately. Please join me and Diana in praying for all those affected  by this tragedy.”

All persons or entities covered by the Illinois Flag Display Act are ordered to fly their  U.S. and Illinois State Flags at half-staff until sunset on Thursday, June 16.
