A deal has been reached on Capitol Hill.
Senate leadership came to an agreement Wednesday that will end the 16 day government shutdown and prevent the country from defaulting on its debt.
House Speaker John Boehner says the House will not block the deal.
Both chambers are scheduled to vote on the agreement Wednesday night. It will reopen the government through January 15 and will raise the debt ceiling through February 7.
"For today, the relief we hope for is to reopen the government, avoid default, and protect the historic cuts we achieved under the budget control act. This is far less than many of us had hoped for, frankly, but it's far better than what some had sought," Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said.
"I do know this, Senator McConnell and I have sat in very, very serious discussions the last few days. We're going to do everything we can to change the atmosphere in the Senate and accomplish things that need to be done for our country," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said.
No members of South Dakota's Congressional delegation were available to answer questions Wednesday ahead of the crucial vote to end the shutdown.
Republican Representative Kristi Noem and Senator John Thune both were in meetings all day and their offices said they were unavailable for a comment.
Democratic Senator Tim Johnson's office sent this statement:
"I am glad the Senate leadership came together in a bipartisan fashion to find a way out of the mess we are in now, open up the government, and pay the nation’s bills. This compromise will help keep our economic recovery on track by sending a strong signal to consumers and businesses.
By holding firm in opposition to the House attempts at extortion, I hope that President Obama has permanently closed the door to the possibility of government default by either Republicans or Democrats.
A key piece of the agreement is jump starting a constructive budget process to find real solutions to address our deficit in a setting free of hostage taking," Johnson said in an email sent to South Dakota media.
