Sen. Johnson moved to private rehabilitation center



Sen. Tim Johnson (D-South Dakota) has left the hospital for a private rehabilitation center.

In December, Johnson suffered a massive brain hemorrhage and underwent surgery at the George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C. He was recovering in the hospital's rehab unit but was moved to a private center last week.

Johnson has been working on legislative matters while in the hospital, his office said. He sits on the Senate Indian Affairs Committee and the Senate Appropriations Committee.
