House Minority leader returns to Statehouse

(Host) House Minority leader Steve Adams made an emotional return to the Statehouse on Tuesday, a month after having heart surgery. Adams told his House colleagues that his recuperation is going well and that he expects to be back in Montpelier on a full time basis after Town Meeting Day. But Adams said his return was difficult because of the death of his seat mate, Lyndonville Representative Cola Hudson, late last month: (Adams) "My return is obviously bittersweet I’ve sat in this chair here for seven years and have had the wisdom of seat # 113 guide me in many of the decisions that I’ve made and I as all of you do miss Cola." (Host) Dorset Rep. Patti Komline is the acting head of the House GOP caucus until Adams returns.
