President Barack Obama has signed a bill to raise the debt ceiling and end the government shutdown.
Congress approved the bill, which easily cleared both houses, and it got substantial Republican support.
The government will now be able to raise its borrowing limit until Feb. 7 or perhaps a few weeks longer.
