U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (LOW'-tuhn-burg) of New Jersey has returned to work on Capitol Hill after being diagnosed with lymphoma and receiving his first chemotherapy treatment last week.
Spokesman Caley Gray says the 86-year-old Democrat was attending a Tuesday afternoon hearing on Toyota vehicle recalls. Earlier, the senator voted on a judicial nomination.
The U.S. Senate's second-oldest member was hospitalized Feb. 15 after suffering a fall at his Cliffside Park home. The following day he was treated for a bleeding ulcer. The B-cell lymphoma was found in the ulcer.
The senator was discharged Thursday. He did not attend a Monday morning meeting with Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the state's congressional delegation.
