Budget deal reached

Posted: Updated:

House and Senate negotiators from both parties have reached a budget deal to fund the government for two years and avert any near-term threat of another shutdown.

Congressman Paul Ryan and Senator Patty Murray announced the framework Tuesday evening.

They say the deal will break the fiscal gridlock and end the seemingly never-ending lurch from budget crisis to budget crisis.

But of course, any deal would have to pass the House and Senate.  The House is slated to take up the bill this week.
