House votes on budget deal

The first government shutdown in 17 years is heading for the history books after the Senate voted 81-18 to support legislation that reopens Washington and averts a debt default. The bill now goes to the House, where lawmakers have moved into debate and are expected to vote late Wednesday night.

UPDATE: House just passed the bill.
