FLAGS-U.S. TROOPS
(2007-06-15)
(wgvu) - WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush is considering a Michigan
congressman's bill to require the lowering of flags to honor dead
military personnel.
Bart Stupak's bill would require federal agencies to comply with
a governor's request that they fly their flags at half-staff to
honor a fallen service member.
The Menominee (Michigan) Democrat says he was upset by
inconsistency in the honors for troops killed in Iraq and
Afghanistan.
The House passed the bill in May, and the Senate approved it on
a voice vote late yesterday -- on Flag Day.
The measure is named for Army Specialist Joseph Micks of Rapid
River, who was killed in Iraq last year.
