Governor Romney Declares June 11, 2004 a Day in Honor of Former President Ronald Reagan
BOSTON - The Division of Banks (Division) will be closed on Friday after Governor Mitt Romney declared June 11, 2004 a day in honor of former President Ronald Reagan, who died Saturday at his Los Angeles home.
Romney's Executive Order follows President George Bush's designation of Friday, June 11 as a national day of mourning in which U.S. stock markets and federal offices will be closed.
The Division advises all banks and credit unions that the Governor's Executive Order is limited to State agencies within the Executive Department. It does not trigger the provisions of General Laws chapter 167, section 21.
