Sen. Daniel Inouye will lie in state in the Capitol Rotunda Thursday.
Inouye, the Senate's second-longest serving senator, died Monday. The Hawaii Democrat was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1962, and was President Pro Tem, third in the line of presidential succession. A Medal of Honor winner for his World War II service, Inouye was 88.
Vice President Joe Biden Tuesday administered the oath of President Pro Tem Tuesday to Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.
Lying in state at the Capitol is a rare honor, usually afforded to deceased presidents. Presidents Ronald Reagan in 2004 and Gerald Ford in 2007 were honored, as was civil rights leader Rosa Parks in 2005.
