Senate Passes Measure to End Shutdown and Raise Debt Limit
With Treasury warning it could run out of money to pay U.S. obligations within a day, the Senate voted overwhelmingly Wednesday evening 81-18 to approve a proposal hammered out by the Senate’s Republican and Democratic leaders after the House on Tuesday was unable to move forward with any resolution.
The House was expected within hours to follow suit and approve the Senate plan that would fund the government through Jan. 15 and raise the debt limit through Feb. 7.
