WASHINGTON D.C. (WLFI) - The Senate agreed on a deal to fund the government through the end of the year and push back the debt ceiling until February.
Framework for Wednesday's deal came from a group of 14 bipartisan Senators including Indiana's Joe Donnelly.
Donnelly said the group started meeting a few weeks ago to try and create a compromise.
He said the deal will fund the government until January 15 of next year and extends the debt limit until February 7, 2014.
Donnelly said that while this deal could get the government running again, he would have liked to see these limits further extended.
"This gave us a chance to put some time in between now and the next deadline," said Donnelly. "I wish these deadlines were further out, but you can only get what you can get at that time."
Donnelly said he is confident this deal will pass the House.
