WASHINGTON - A powerful House committee chairman with a central role in President Barack Obama's global warming and health care legislation has been hospitalized.
     
Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., was not feeling well Tuesday and was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for "routine testing," spokeswoman Karen Lightfoot said Wednesday.
     
She said that Waxman, 69, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, is "feeling much better now." She said his office had no further details to release.
     
Waxman just finished steering the climate change legislation through a close House vote and has been gearing up to tackle health care later this summer.
