U.S. Senate, House End Partial Government Shutdown with Bipartisan Votes

Federal legislators reached a bipartisan agreement on a spending bill Monday, ending a brief government shutdown fueled by debate over funding, immigration and healthcare laws, among other issues.

The U.S. Senate approved the short-term spending bill in a 81-18 vote Monday afternoon, followed by a 266-150 vote in the U.S. House of Representatives House in the evening, The Washington Post reports.

The approved spending bill would fund the government through Feb. 8.

Agencies with oversight of the credit and collection industry, with the exception of the Federal Trade Commission, were up-and-running during the shutdown.
