ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland congressman who suffered a minor stroke this month has returned to Capitol Hill to get back to work.
Democratic Rep. Anthony Brown planned to speak Tuesday evening on the House floor about the defense authorization bill.
Matthew Verghese, Brown’s spokesman, says Brown also planned to sign a discharge petition to force floor votes on immigration legislation.
Verghese says while Brown is eager to return to work, he will continue to follow the recommendations of his doctors on his ongoing recovery.
