Billy Graham’s Body to Lie in Honor in the Capitol Rotunda
The late Rev. Billy Graham’s body will lie in honor in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda for two days next week, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (D-KY) announced Thursday. The rare honor was most recently bestowed upon the late Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-HI) in 2012. Graham will be the first religious leader to receive the honor. The evangelist died this week at age 99.
