State leaders will honor a longtime, local lawmaker Tuesday.

There's a tribute to Lacey Putney set for 6:30 p.m. tonight in Richmond.

The event at Richmond Center Stage will start with a cocktail reception and them move on to the actual tribute.

Putney served as a state delegate for 52 years.

He represented Convington and parts of Botetourt, Alleghany, and Bedford Counties.
