State Treasurer Ron Crane has open-heart surgery

Idaho State Treasurer Ron Crane underwent open-heart surgery this morning, and his office reports that Crane had a successful triple bypass operation and is resting comfortably in a Boise hospital; he is expected to return to work at the state Capitol in about two weeks.

Crane, 62, is serving his fourth term as state treasurer; last year, he was re-elected without opposition. A Republican, he served 16 years in the state House of Representatives before being elected to the state office, in which he serves as the state's chief fiscal officer and banker of monies collected by the state.
