Sen. Feinstein has broken left leg, needs surgery

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat, broke her left shinbone while vacationing in Colorado last weekend and will need surgery in the coming days, her office said Tuesday.

In a statement, the office said Feinstein, 67, slipped on some stairs during the Labor Day holiday weekend and sustained a "compound fracture of her left tibia."

"She has now returned to Washington and has discussed the injury with Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle and will schedule the surgery so that she is available for as many crucial votes as possible," Feinstein's office said in a statement.

The Republican-led House and Senate returned to work this week, and lawmakers are scrambling to finish the budget and several other priority bills by mid-October.

No date had yet been set for Feinstein's surgery.
