LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Former Democratic Nevada Sen. Harry Reid will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, Jan. 12, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced Sunday.
Events will include formal arrival and departure ceremonies.
Reid served in the U.S. Senate for 30 years, including eight years as Senate majority leader. He was the longest-serving senator in Nevada history when he retired in 2017.

Reid died last month at age 82 after a four-year battle with pancreatic cancer.
