WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Don Young, the longest-serving Republican in House history, will be in state in the US Capitol on March 29, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Monday.
Young’s office announced the congressman’s death in a statement Friday night. He was 88.
Young, who was first elected to the US House in 1973, was known for his brusque style. He was elected in 2020 to serve his 25th term as the sole member of Alaska.
Pelosi’s office said a formal ceremony will be held with the Young family, which will be open to invited guests. After the memorial service, there will be a viewing for members of Congress.
