Staffers for U.S. Senator Mark Kirk say they will have an update on his condition in the near future.
Kirk is still recovering from a stroke six months ago that has kept him away from Capitol Hill ever since.
He has not cast a vote since then, but is listed as co-sponsor on numerous bills. However, Chicago Public Radio reports that Kirk’s staff declines to say whether the senator personally approved each decision to sign on as co-sponsor.
A statement from Kirk’s office says the senator is eager to get back to work as soon as possible.
