"Steube sustained 'several serious injuries' when he fell off a ladder while cutting trees on his property, his office said Thursday. He spent the night in the intensive care unit after Wednesday’s 25-foot fall," Newsmax reported.
"Steube was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2018 and just began his third term. He represents all of Sarasota and Charlotte counties and part of Lee County," it added.

Stuebe's return will be good news for Republicans who will need every vote they can for the party's new legislation after taking back a slim majority in the House.
The House is moving forward on several investigations as well after selecting Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as House Speaker following a week-long 15 rounds of voting followed by days of committee leadership assignments.
The party is also interested in the investigation over President Joe Biden's classified document found in his Penn Center office and his Delaware home. The Penn Center batch was from his time as vice president under former President Barack Obama.
The latest report of Steube is encouraging for the people of Florida as well, as he helps his southwest district to recover from Hurricane Ian.
The list of projects continues to grow and the congressman's health will be a vital part of keeping him involved in the many changes impacting the nation.
