NASHVILLE (AP) – State Sen. Douglas Henry has returned to the Legislature.

The Nashville Democrat was in the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday. The 85-year-old lawmaker was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center on Tuesday for tests after he experienced high blood pressure and felt dizzy in a caucus meeting.

Henry has been a state senator since 1970. His District 21 seat represents southwestern Nashville, including some of the city's wealthiest neighborhoods.
