Waxman Released, Expected Back at Work Next Week
By Paul Kane
After two days in the hospital, Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.) is being released today, a spokeswoman said, and he is expected back in the Capitol next week.
Waxman, 69, fainted Tuesday and was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. His office did not elaborate on the fainting spell or its cause. A spokeswoman from the House Energy and Commerce Committee said in a statement that the congressman is "in good health."
Waxman, the chair of that committee, just finished shepherding a landmark climate-change bill through the House and is now expected to play a leading role in crafting health-care legislation.
