JACKSON – State Rep. Brian Aldridge, R-Tupelo, has missed this week of the legislative session after being admitted to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville.
House Clerk Don Richardson told House members Thursday that Aldridge is improving after being admitted to the hospital after undergoing testing related to a liver condition. Aldridge, 33, is in his second term in the House.
He was the recipient of a liver transplant prior to his tenure in the Mississippi House.
He represents District 17, which is confined to Lee County.
Richardson said the hope is that Aldridge can resume his legislative duties next week.
