State lawmaker released from hospital
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – A Republican lawmaker in Kentucky has been released from the hospital.
Republican Rep. Brandon Reed was rushed to the hospital on Monday with what Republican Rep. Chris Fugate called a “serious medical condition.” Monday night, House Republican Floor Leader Jonathan Shell said Reed had been released from the hospital and is doing well.
Reed, who has cerebral palsy, represents three central Kentucky counties. His absence came as lawmakers were debating a proposal to impose sales taxes on a host of services like auto repair and some home improvements. The House eventually approved the measure by a vote of 51 to 44.
