ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings says his doctors expect him to return to work in about a week after a medical procedure.
Cummings missed a hearing on Thursday in Washington relating to statehood for the District of Columbia due to the procedure.
In a statement, Cummings did not elaborate on the procedure.
The 68-year-old Democrat who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has had some health issues in recent years.
In 2017, he had a minimally invasive heart procedure. Last year, he had a medical procedure on his knee to drain a bacterial infection.
