GOP senator says deal at hand to avoid default
WASHINGTON (AP) A Republican senator says she understands Senate leaders have reached an agreement to avoid a Treasury default and reopen the government after a 16-day partial shutdown.
Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire made her comments Wednesday as she walked into a meeting of Senate Republicans in leader Mitch McConnell's office.
Ayotte said the leaders would make a formal announcement.
The government would reopen through Jan. 15 and Treasury would be allowed to increase the nation's borrowing authority through Feb. 7.
