Final Capitol tribute to late Hawaii Sen. Inouye

By Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) The body of Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii has arrived at the U.S. Capitol, where former colleagues and the public are paying respects to a man who served as a soldier in World War II and was a senator for 50 years.

Inouye will lie in state in the Capitol rotunda. It's a rare tribute that demonstrates respect and good will that lawmakers in both parties had toward the soft-spoken but powerful Democratic chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Inouye died Monday at age 88 from respiratory complications.

Only 31 people have lain in the Capitol rotunda. The last was former President Gerald R. Ford six years ago. The last senator so honored was Democrat Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota in 1978.
