It’s over. But just for now.
President Barack Obama signed a bill that ends the 16-day partial government shutdown and raises the debt ceiling, the White House said early Thursday morning.
Weeks of bitter political fighting gave way to a frenzied night in Washington as Congress passed the bill that would prevent the country from crashing into the debt ceiling.
Lawmakers worked precariously close to the midnight debt ceiling deadline amid warnings the government could run out of money to pay its bills if it didn’t raise the debt ceiling.
Federal workers should expect to return to work Thursday morning, the director of the Office of Management and Budget said.
Director Sylvia Mathews Burwell said employees should check the Office of Personnel Management’s website for updates.
Yosemite National Park said it was already resuming operations Wednesday night.
