"It's past time to codify in statute a uniform and respectful way to display, fold and retire our state's flag," Johnson said. "I'm thankful to the cadets at Dimond High School's JROTC. They've done a wonderful job in taking up the cause and have helped us set the standards that the House passed today. It's a small bill, relatively, but it can mean so much to veterans, servicemen and -women and all proud Alaskans.

HB 98 passed by a vote of 35 to zero and now moves to the Alaska Senate for consideration.
