Gov. Kristi Noem has ordered flags across the state to be flown at half-staff today through sunset on Friday in memory Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, who passed away.
Cummings was a current member of the U.S. House of Representatives for Maryland’s 7th congressional district. He served in that capacity since 1996.
The governor’s directive is in accordance with a proclamation issued by President Donald Trump.
