By  | 

AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - Governor LePage has closed non-essential State Offices Wednesday in honor of former President George H.W. Bush.

The Bureau of Motor Vehicles will be closed and all appointments are cancelled, and the Postal Service will not deliver regular mail.

Federal offices, including social security field offices, will also be closed.

The swearing in of new Maine lawmakers as required by the state Constitution will go on as planned tomorrow morning in Augusta.

State courts and public schools will also remain open.

LePage says President Bush is Maine's President and has ordered all flags in the state to remain at half staff for 30 days.

LePage was in Washington, D.C. yesterday to pay his respects on behalf of the people of Maine.
