JEFFERSON CITY — A Missouri senator hospitalized after she became light-headed has returned to the state Capitol.
Sen. Jane Cunningham says she was admitted to a local hospital Wednesday because her blood pressure had risen to dangerously high levels. She returned Thursday afternoon to the Senate floor, where several lawmakers briefly spoke with her during debate on different bills.
Cunningham is a Republican from Chesterfield and is completing her first Senate term.
Cunningham on Wednesday was taken from her Capitol office in a wheelchair and driven to the hospital. She remained there overnight for observation.
