The Government Is Now Open for Business

Congressional lawmakers on Oct. 16 passed legislation to reopen the government and lift the debt ceiling. The Senate voted 81-18 in favor of the measure, while the House supported it by a vote of 285-144. Government employees were instructed to return to work the next day.
