Debt Default Diverted, Senate Reaches Deal, House Concedes Without a Single Concession

Thu Oct 17, 2013 AT 10:25 AM EDT

After two weeks of pressure and on-again, off-again negotiations, Congress reached agreement Wednesday evening to end the government shutdown and avert a debt default. The deal creates a new set of deadlines – and the potential for future stand-offs. House and Senate budget conferees are directed to submit a budget report by December 13. Government funding is set to expire on January 15. And the debt ceiling will likely be reached again on February 7.
