President Donald Trump announced Friday that he’ll sign legislation to temporarily reopen the federal government, bringing the longest shutdown in U.S. history, to a close. If passed, the deal will fund the government until Feb. 15. Roughly 800,000 federal workers from eight agencies have been furloughed or had to work without pay for 35 days. With this short term deal, the Homeland Security, Justice, Agriculture, Commerce, House and Urban Development, Interior State and Treasury Departments will re-open. In the White House Rose Garden, Trump said he would ensure federal employees receive their back pay as soon as possible. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reaffirmed that sentiment shortly after during a press conference. The legislation set to be passed by Congress will include back pay for those 800,000 federal workers who went without their salaries during the shutdown. Tune in this Sunday at 10:30a for more coverage on ABC7.
