ABC News reports that the deal was reached with just hours left, averting a potential crisis.

Senators are reportedly expected to approve a temporary funding bill that would delay a shutdown until December 3.

The last thing the apparent American people need is for the government to grind to a halt, Chuck Schumer, Senate Majority Leader, via statement.

According to ABC News, the temporary measure does not include raising the nation's debt ceiling.

What Republicans laid out all along was a clean continuing resolution without the poison pill of a debt limit increase.

That's exactly what we'll pass today, Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader, via ABC News.

If approved by the Senate, the temporary measure will return to the House, where it is expected to be passed before it ends up on President Joe Biden's desk.
