SALEM, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon state senator who was rushed to the hospital after a floor session sustained a heart attack but is expected to return to the Capitol next week.

A spokeswoman for the Senate Republicans said Tuesday that doctors have given Sen. Alan Olsen of Canby “a very positive prognosis.”

Olsen was taken to Salem Hospital in an ambulance on Monday. GOP Spokeswoman Caitie Butler says Olsen is expected to be released from the hospital on Wednesday and will stay at home the rest of the week.
