Lake taken to hospital

House Tax Chairman Dennis Lake, R-Blackfoot, was taken to the hospital today shortly after the House convened. "They're just checking on him," said House Majority Leader Mike Moyle. "He wasn't feeling good, so he went in to see if he was all right." Last year, Lake collapsed during a House session due to what was described as a mini-stroke, though he quickly recovered. That's why he wanted to make sure everything was OK today, Moyle said. "He's had one before." As of now, Moyle said, the House Rev & Tax hearing on the beer and wine tax increase still is scheduled to continue as planned in the morning. "The vice chairman can take over if he's not here, if he's feeling rough," Moyle said.
