Published: December 3, 2015

Faints in meeting: Sander Levin Faints, U.S. Rep. Sander Levin, 84, is back at work at his office in the U.S. Capitol after he had a coughing fit and fainted at a Wednesday afternoon hearing.

Levin, D-Royal Oak, fainted “briefly” after leaving a hearing on prescription drug costs in the Capitol Visitors Center, his Chief of Staff Hilarie Chambers said.

“He just had one of those coughing attacks that wouldn’t stop,” Chambers said. “He’s back in the office and working. Everything is fine.”

She said Levin was not hospitalized and never left the building. Levin walked to the office of the Capitol’s attending physician.

“They checked him out, gave him fluids and a new cold medicine,” Chambers said.

Levin, the ranking member on the House Ways and Means Committee, was first elected to the House in 1983. He said this summer he intends to run for another term.
