Washington, D.C. - By Executive Order of President George W. Bush, all executive departments, independent establishments, and other governmental agencies of the Federal government shall be closed on June 11, 2004, as a mark of respect for Ronald Reagan, the fortieth President of the United States.
U.S. Office of Personnel Management Director Kay Coles James notified Cabinet Secretaries, Agency Heads and Chief Human Capital Officers governmentwide about the closure shortly after President Bush signed the Executive Order on Sunday, June 6th. James provided agency leaders with a copy of the President's proclamation which named Friday, June 11, 2004, as a National Day of Mourning.
The closure order includes Federal offices, with the exception of those offices and installations, or parts thereof, in the Department of State, the Department of Defense, the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, or other departments, independent establishments, and governmental agencies whose agency head determines should remain open for reasons of national security or defense or other essential public business.
Former President Reagan will lie in state at the United States Capitol beginning Wednesday evening. He will be laid to rest in his home state of California later in the week.
