January 06, 2010 State Rep. Dennie Oxley I, D-Taswell, under medical care since going into cardiac arrest while hospitalized in mid-November, missed the start of the 2010 legislative session yesterday (Tuesday).
"We have asked that the Speaker of the House excuse Dennie from attending Indiana House sessions in Indianapolis this week," the family said in a statement Monday.
"Although Dennie will not be able to be there, we fully expect him to be back at his job serving the people of the 73rd House District very soon."
"Again, the family thanks everyone for their prayers and messages of support. We ask that you continue to keep Dennie in your thoughts as he gets back on the road to good health."
