Sen. John Boozman (R-AR) has been released from the hospital after undergoing successful heart surgery, his office said Monday.
The senator released an accompanying statement saying he’s receiving regular updates on tornado recovery efforts in central Arkansas.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost loved ones in this devastation. While Arkansans are all too familiar with the destruction that Mother Nature can leave behind, it never gets easier,” Boozman said. “Arkansans have always come together in the most difficult times to help neighbors in need. It’s clear that commitment continues today. I’m receiving regular updates from my staff about the current search and rescue effort. I will work with the governor’s office, the congressional delegation and FEMA Administrator Fugate to make sure that Arkansans get the resources they need to respond, rebuild and recover. We will help in any way we can.”
