Governor Signs New Flag Order

Gov. Granholm signed a new executive order Monday requiring all state departments to observe Flag Day and Flag Month.

The new order also requires all state departments to fly their flags at half staff whenever a Michigan solider is killed overseas.

Over the last several months the governor has received criticism from several groups for ordering flags to be lowered when a solider is killed.

They say that honor is only supposed to go to high ranking government leaders.
