Government To Reopen Following Passage Of Congressional Agreement

October 17, 2013

An agreement has been approved to avoid a federal Treasury default and to restart the government after a 16-day partial shutdown.

Both Houses of Congress then gave their approval to the plan on Wednesday evening.  The Senate vote was 81-18, while the House tally came in at 285-144.

President Barack Obama said he would sign the measure as soon as it reaches his desk.

The proposal calls for the Treasury to continue to have the authority to continue borrowing normally through at least February 7, which would keep the government open through January 15.
