- Excerpt from Deal to Raise Debt Ceiling, End Shutdown Yields No Major Changes to Health Care Law:

Congress passed legislation on October 16 to end the shutdown that began October 1 and raise the nation’s debt ceiling as part of a last-minute deal to avoid a default by the federal government. The measure, which easily passed both the House and Senate, will provide funding for the federal government through January 15 and raise the debt ceiling through February 7.
