This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The senate democratic caucus is back to full strength at the statehouse.

Senator Tom Courtney of Burlington returned to work this week. The 65-year-old underwent heart bypass surgery 18-days ago.

Without Courtney the past few weeks, there were only 25 senate democrats on the job, not enough to make a majority vote.

Now, the democrats now have their full 26 to 24 advantage in the senate.
