Missouri’s governor has ordered U.S. and Missouri flags to fly at half-staff at all government buildings statewide on Wednesday, to honor a Missouri lawmaker who died last week.

State Rep. Tom Hannegan (R-St. Charles) died of a stroke, at the age of 51. Governor Mike Parson praises Hannegan, saying he leaves behind a strong legacy of public service and advocacy.

Hannegan chaired the House Local Government Committee in Jefferson City.

“Tom worked tirelessly on behalf of his constituents, and thanks to legislation he sponsored more military service members will have greater access to job opportunities across the state,” Governor Parson says, in a written statement. Teresa and I are praying for Tom’s family and friends during this difficult time.”
