Former Montana Sen. Conrad Burns has been released from a Washington, D.C., hospital and moved to a rehabilitation facility to continue recovering from a stroke.

Burns' family released a statement through Montana U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg saying the 74-year-old was moved from Georgetown University Hospital to The National Rehabilitation Hospital over the weekend.

Doctors say he could spend three to four weeks there before he is released. Burns suffered a stroke on Dec. 9.

He and his wife recently sold their house in Arlington, Va., and planned to move back to Billings, Mont.
