On Monday, less than two months after suffering a stroke in January, Rep. MaryLynn Magar made her return to the Capitol.

The Tequesta Republican was welcomed at an afternoon meeting of the House Select Committee on Health Care Workforce Innovation by chair Rep. Jose Oliva.

Oliva said Magar promised to return to Tallahassee by the beginning of the annual legislative session. The session starts 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Magar’s office credits her personality for the “strong progress” made after the “mild” stroke while in Tallahassee. She has represented House District 82 since 2012, a seat covering Martin and Palm Beach counties.
