Deal Ends Partial Govt. Shutdown

WASHINGTON — After 16 days, lawmakers finally came together on a deal to end the partial government shutdown.

The move averts a potential default. President Obama signed the bill immediately. He says the U.S. will reopen the government right away.

The bill calls for opening the government through Jan. 15 and extending the nation’s borrowing authority through Feb. 7. Obama says once these issues are resolved, he wants to move forward this year on immigration, farm legislation and a larger budget deal.
