JACKSON – Rep. Steve Holland, D-Plantersville, underwent gallbladder surgery Friday afternoon at University of Mississippi Medical Center.
Holland said he started feeling bad Thursday afternoon at the state Capitol, where the Legislature is in session. He said an exam at UMC revealed the problem.
“I will be back to work next week,” he said before the surgery.
Late Friday a spokesman for UMC could not provide any details on Holland’s condition or even if he was a patient at the hospital.
Holland has been in the state House since 1984 where he represents portions of Lee County.
