LOS ANGELES -- California Congressman Henry Waxman, a Democrat who has played a central role in shaping President Obama's global warming and health care legislation, has been hospitalized in Los Angeles.
Waxman was not feeling well Tuesday, and was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for "routine testing," according to spokeswoman Karen Lightfoot.
Lightfood said Waxman was feeling "much better," but couldn't provide any further details.
Waxman chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
The powerful congressman just finished steering Obama's climate change legislation through a close House vote and has been gearing up to tackle health care later this summer.
