Senate President Mike Miller showed up to work on Wednesday, the first day of the General Assembly’s annual session, with a cane, and he hinted at additional ailments.
The 76 year old said he needs the cane because of problems with his hip and knee. When a reporter asked whether he has other health concerns, he promised to disclose more information about his health during Thursday’s floor session.
“I plan to be president of the Senate for quite some time, and my health is very challenged, but we’re going to work through it,” he said.
He promised a productive 90-day session, which is the 33rd he has presided over as Senate president.
