Congress reaches tentative deal to avert government shutdown

Congressional negotiators reached a tentative deal in principle Thursday to fund the government as the deadline to avoid a shutdown draws nearer. Lawmakers have a preliminary agreement on 12 appropriations bills to keep the government running past Dec. 20. The House wants to vote on the bills early next week to give the Senate enough time to pass the legislation before funding lapses.
