BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple says he wants flags at all state buildings to be flown at half-staff on the day that former first lady Nancy Reagan is laid to rest.

Reagan died on Sunday of congestive heart failure at her home in Los Angeles. She was 94. She was the wife of President Ronald Reagan.

Dalrymple on Monday said he will issue an official directive regarding the flags when the day of Reagan’s interment is announced. Other governors ordered flags lowered starting Monday in accordance with an order by President Barack Obama.

Dalrymple on Monday called Nancy Reagan one of the country’s “most influential” first ladies. He said she represented the nation “with strength, class and dignity, and was admired around the world.”
