House Rep Henry Waxman was admitted to the hospital yesterday for "routine testing" after he was not feeling well Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. However, this morning he's "feeling much better," a Cedars-Sinai Medical Center spokeswoman said. Waxman, 69, has held office since 1975, representing California's 30th District, which covers the Westside, Malibu, parts of the Valley and into Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Hollywood. He's the chairman of the all-powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee and just finished pushing through major climate change legislation and has been gearing up for a summer of health care reform.
