on Thursday, 17 October 2013.
As was reported this morning on the National News, Congress has approved legislation to end the government shutdown and extend the debt limit. President Barack Obama signed the bill this morning. The Senate acted first, passing the bill 81-18. New York's U.S. senators, U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer, both supported the measure. The bill was then sent to the House, where it passed by a vote of 285-144. U.S. Rep. Bill Owens, and U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna, both voted for the continuing resolution and debt limit extension. The bill allows the government to stay open until another resolution scheduled for January and a vote on the debt ceiling will come up again in February. It is estimated that the government shut down took 24 Billion dollars out of the economy.
