WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Rep. Harold “Hal” Rogers (KY-05), Dean of the House, is making marked improvements after being injured in a car accident last week. He has moved on to physical rehabilitation to assist with recovering from a back injury sustained in the crash.

“The Chairman is recovering from the injuries that he sustained from his motor vehicle collision. He has made satisfactory progress where the doctors have released him from the in-patient hospital. He will continue with on-going physical therapy efforts for his full recovery,” said Dr. Brian P. Monahan, Attending Physician for the U.S. Congress.

“I deeply appreciate the outpouring of prayers and well wishes from across the country. I’ll be wearing a back brace occasionally for a few weeks and continuing physical therapy to regain strength, so I can get back to work as soon as possible,” said Congressman Rogers. “In the meantime, I’m having daily calls and in-person meetings with staff to ensure our offices continue serving the great people of Kentucky’s Fifth District. I’ve also spoken with many of my colleagues, including Speaker Johnson and other Republican leaders to discuss upcoming votes and finalizing federal funding bills.”
