Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says there is bipartisan compromise to end the partial shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration that has left 74,000 transportation and construction workers idled.

In a statement Thursday, the majority leader did not specify details.

Online Chat: Beth Killoran, deputy assistant secretary for Information Technology and chief information officer at HHS, on March 28.

But other officials say they expect the Senate to accept a House-passed bill as early as Friday.


The officials spoke on condition of anonymity, saying the precise terms remain confidential.
