As the Nation continues to mourn the passing of former President George H.W. Bush, many government offices will be closed Wednesday for a national day of mourning.
The closure was announced by President Donald Trump. Trump signed an executive order to close the federal government "as a mark of respect for George Herbert Walker Bush, the forty-first President of the United States."
