Former Sen. Burns to Begin Rehab Following Stroke

Former Sen. Conrad Burns (R-Mont.) was transferred last weekend from Georgetown University Hospital to The National Rehabilitation Hospital, where he will begin weeks of therapy after suffering a stroke earlier this month.

Doctors said it could be up to four weeks before Burns, 74, is released from the rehab facility, at which point he plans to head home to Billings, Mont.

“I’ve been bucked off before. I always get back on. This isn’t any different. I plan on being around for a long time,— Burns said in a statement.
