WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will take part in a memorial service for former House Speaker Tom Foley next Tuesday at the Capitol building.
Foley was a 30-year veteran of the House who died last Friday at the age of 84.
Obama praised him as a "legend of the United States Congress" whose straightforward approach helped find common ground with both Republicans and his fellow Democrats.
The Washington state lawmaker served as speaker from 1989 to 1995. He was ambassador to Japan under President Bill Clinton.
