South Dakota lawmakers have canceled their work next Tuesday and Wednesday to honor former Gov. Bill Janklow.

Janklow, who died Thursday, will lie in state in the Capitol rotunda in Pierre on Tuesday morning, followed by a memorial service.

On Wednesday, a funeral service will be held in Sioux Falls.

The planned 35-day legislative session will be cut to 33 days. Lawmakers will work later in the afternoon and hold committee meetings in the afternoon and evening if needed, House Majority Leader David Lust, R-Rapid City, said. Lawmakers will now have until Jan. 26 to file bills.
