Last night, with two hours to spare, the Federal shutdown was avoided. From the New York Times:
Congressional leaders and President Obama headed off a shutdown of the government with less than two hours to spare Friday night under a tentative budget deal that would cut $38 billion from federal spending this year.
Although compromise has been reached, Congress did not pass this compromise as a budget bill.
Because of the need to put the compromise into legislative form, Congressional leaders said the House and Senate would vote overnight to pass a stopgap measure financing the government through Thursday to prevent any break in the flow of federal dollars. The actual budget compromise would be considered sometime next week.
Looks like the government will endure, albeit still on a continuing revolution until next week.
