Virginia Lawmaker to Undergo Surgery

Posted: Jan 23, 2018 9:49 AM Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- A Virginia Republican lawmaker is set to miss a week of the legislative session for medical reasons, temporarily decreasing the already slim Republican majority in the state House.

Del. Terry Austin of Botetourt will be absent for at least a week for treatment related to bladder cancer.

Republicans have a 51-49 majority in the House that will be at 50-49 during Austin's absence.

Austin said he rejected his Texas-based surgeon's initial request to schedule surgery on the first day of the legislative session. Republicans needed all members present that day to ensure that a Republican was elected House speaker.
