Government Shutdown is OVER

posted by Mark Starling -

The latest government shutdown is OVER after House passage of a spending bill.  

The final vote was 240-186.  

House passage followed earlier approval by the Senate overnight.  

The government ran out of money at midnight, Eastern time.  

Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul prompted the brief shutdown by delaying the Senate vote for hours in a protest over federal deficits.
