Public Barred From Feinstein Memorial Service

By    |   Thursday, 05 October 2023 09:12 AM EDT

Due to security concerns, the public will be barred from memorial services Thursday for late Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.

Vice President Kamala Harris and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., will speak at the steps of San Francisco's City Hall after the service was originally planned to be held at the War Memorial and Performing Arts Center in Herbst Theatre, CBS News reported.

Feinstein's office announced the closing of the public service with only invited guests permitted to attend after Wednesday. The security perimeter would be too far back for the public to hear remarks, Feinstein spokesman Adam Russell told CBS News.

Thursday's service will mark the end of two days of events in the city that launched Feinstein's political career. On Wednesday, mourners streamed into City Hall to pay their respects, honoring Feinstein as fearless, smart, and the glue who kept the city together after two political assassinations.

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., also of San Francisco, and Mayor London Breed were among the officials who paid their respects.

Feinstein died early Friday in her Washington, D.C., home of natural causes. She was 90.

A recorded message from President Joe Biden will be played at Thursday's memorial, where Pelosi and Feinstein's granddaughter, Eileen Mariano, are also scheduled to speak. California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom, a former San Francisco mayor, and former California Gov. Jerry Brown are also expected to be in attendance. A livestream is planned of the service, which will be closed to the public.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
