SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Republican legislative leader says that state Rep. Tim Rounds is recovering in the hospital after suffering from a stroke.

House Majority Leader Brian Gosch said Tuesday that the Pierre Republican could be released from a Sioux Falls hospital this weekend.

Gosch, who visited Rounds in the hospital last week, says he has received visits from a significant number of legislators.

First elected to the state House in 2002, Rounds served eight years and then came back after skipping an election because of term limits. He has served as chairman of the House Commerce and Energy Committee and is the brother of South Dakota Republican U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds.

Gosch says he fully expects that Rounds will return to the Legislature.
