House lawmakers honor John Lewis who died at age 80 from cancer

The late Representative John Lewis will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda Monday and Tuesday as his funeral arrangements were delayed for more than a week in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who worked with Lewis in Congress for more than three decades, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released a joint statement announcing the plans for his viewing on Thursday night. Arrangements for Lewis’ funeral were also hindered to avoid conflicting with fellow civil rights icon Reverend C.T. Vivian’s burial.
