Congress makes deal to end Government Shutdown
The House of Representatives will first vote on the proposal, which is expected to pass with mostly Democratic votes, then be passed to the Senate for final congressional approval, which would then be signed into law by President Obama. Moving the deal through the House first will not be necessary if senators can reach a unanimous agreement to expedite the measure.
Both Democrats and Republicans are confident that the House of Representatives will have enough votes to pass the bipartisan Senate plan.
