Rep. Jon Hubbard has heart attack

Posted By on Mon, Feb 28, 2011 at 2:33 PM

The Arkansas Republican Party says freshman Rep. Jon Hubbard of Jonesboro was hospitalized over the weekend for a mild heart attack.

The family of State Representative Jon Hubbard, R-Jonesboro, released the following statement after Hubbard was admitted to a local hospital Saturday:

"State Representative Jon Hubbard, R-Jonesboro, was taken to St. Bernards Hospital in Jonesboro Saturday afternoon after experiencing chest pains. Early tests did not indicate that Hubbard had a heart attack, but after he was admitted to the hospital overnight for observation, a series of blood enzyme tests confirmed he had suffered a mild heart attack with likely blockage of heart arteries.

“Today, a heart catheterization was performed to check for and correct any blockages. As a result, Representative Hubbard received one stent. After a short recovery period, Hubbard will rejoin fellow Legislators in the Arkansas House of Representatives.”

Hubbard had a difficult week last week. He appeared at length Wednesday before a House committee in behalf of his bill to prevent state benefits for people without legal residence in the state. The bill was defeated.
