A deal is on the table; will it pass?

Govexec is reporting that the Senate deal includes back pay for furloughed federal workers, would fund the government through Jan. 15, and would extend the government's borrowing authority through Feb. 7.
Stay tuned to see whether both the House and Senate pass this bill today. If they do, the President is expected to sign it quickly.
Also a reminder: New Jersey is holding a special election today for Senator. NJ residents, remember to vote!
