Flags should remain at half-staff until sunset on the day of the California senator’s upcoming internment, according to Kotek’s office.
“Senator Feinstein led with integrity and fierceness,” Gov. Kotek said in a statement on Friday. “A fighter for equality, and a voice for people on the margins, her memory will live on for generations to come.”
A former mayor of San Francisco, Feinstein served three decades as a senator from California, making her the longest-serving member of the Senate Democratic conference. During her Senate tenure, she left a mark on a range of issues, including national security and gun control.
The senator passed away at her home in Washington, D.C., only hours after casting a “yes” vote on a motion to keep the government from shutting down with a funding bill.
