Former Missouri congresswoman hospitalized in Italy

( KTRS ) A former U.S. representative for Missouri is recovering after being hospitalized for a brain hemorrhage while vacationing in Italy.

The family of Jo Ann Emerson in a statement Tuesday said the former Republican congresswoman is at an Italian hospital. The statement says the Cape Girardeau native is in stable condition after undergoing surgery.

Emerson served as a U.S. representative for Missouri from 1996 to 2013. She’s now chief executive officer of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association. A spokeswoman for the association in a statement said that Emerson was traveling with family when she suffered a “medical emergency.”

A former chief of staff says she now lives in the Washington, D.C., area.
