Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon has ordered state flags in Laramie County and at the state Capitol Building to be flown at half staff Thursday in honor of a former legislator.

That's according to a news release from the governor's office, which says Governor Gordon issued the order in honor of Donald Lawler. Lawler represented Laramie County in the Wyoming Senate from 1995-1998. He passed away on Jan.6.

The governor's order applies only to the Wyoming state flag and only in Laramie County and the Capitol Building.
