Deal anticipated on Capitol Hill - Oct 15th, 2013 - National

Senate leaders are closing in on an agreement to reopen the government and avoid a U.S. default. Congressional aides predicted Majority Leader Harry Reid and GOP leader Mitch McConnell would seal an agreement sometime today, just two days before the Treasury Department says it will run out of borrowing capacity. The emerging pact would reopen the government through Jan. 15 and permit the Treasury to borrow normally until early to mid-February.
