Elaine Rice Bachmann, acting secretary of the State House Trust, said Monday the trust has approved use of the capitol for the former governor to lie in repose 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday. Gov. Larry Hogan, along with other dignitaries and elected officials, will receive Mandel's family at the State House at 10 a.m.

Mandel, a Democrat, died Sunday. He was 95.

Mandel was governor from 1969 to 1979. He also was speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates before serving as governor.

Mandel is widely viewed as an innovator who reorganized state government to be more efficient. His political legacy was clouded by his conviction on mail fraud charges in 1977 for selling the powers of his office, though his sentence was commuted after serving 19 months in federal prison, and the conviction was overturned.

The funeral services are open to the public. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made in the name of Jeanne Dorsey Mandel, care of the ALS Association, 7507 Standish Place, Rockville 20855.
