Senator Johnson Getting Ready to Come Back

South Dakota Senator Tim Johnson is getting ready to come back. Newsday has an AP story by Mary Clare Jalonick:
Johnson spokeswoman Julianne Fisher said Wednesday that the senator would be in the rehabilitation facility "for a while longer" and would undergo outpatient therapy before returning to the Senate. She would not speculate on how long that will take.

When he does return, Fisher said, Johnson is expected to use an electric scooter to get around. Staff and Capitol workers are widening aisles and doorways in his office, as well as the area around his desk, and Johnson's personal bathroom will be refurbished to make it easier for the senator to use.

There's a lot of work to do in Washington. Let's hope Johnson's recovery continues and that he's back soon.
