A deal has been reached to avoid a government shutdown, multiple sources, including a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, told Fox News.
As a midnight deadline to avoid a shutdown fast approached, Democrats said they were reviewing the details of a tentative agreement, officials told The Associated Press.
Republican leaders in the House of Representatives summoned their rank and file to a late night meeting for what aides said would be an update on the talks.
If both sides agreed to the deal, then Congress would pass another stopgap measure to keep the government running while the deal could be written into a bill.
