Attorney general has heart procedure



Stent_placementMccollum Attorney General Bill McCollum didn't attend Cabinet today, because he was undergoing a medical procedure to insert a stent into a clogged artery "to improve blood flow," said his spokeswoman Sandi Copes.

McCollum's doctors expect that he will make a full recovery within the next few days, Copes added. His doctors discovered the "arterial blockage," during a routine screening.
