Last month, Sanchez missed a couple of days when he underwent an angioplasty. He missed the weekend, but the Senate was not meeting over the weekend at that time.
With the legislature getting closer to sine die, the Senate will be meeting this Saturday, both on the floor and in committees. Sanchez sites on the Senate Rules Committee which is expected to vote on the confirmation of Public Education Department secretary-designate Hanna Skandera.
