Senators to Take Time to Remember Kennedy

Posted September 4, 2009 at 8:57pm

The Senate will dedicate part of next week to remembering the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D- Mass.) with a moment of silence and a block of time for Senators to speak on the floor.

Democratic aides said a specific time had not yet been set, but that it was likely to occur sometime Thursday, possibly in the afternoon.

Kennedy, who served 47 years in the chamber, died Aug. 25 after a 15-month battle with brain cancer.
