Congress negotiators nearing spending bill deal
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Congressional negotiators neared agreement on Thursday on a spending bill to fund many U.S. government agencies through September 30, 2012, Democratic aides said.
A deal would pave the way for Senate and House of Representative votes in coming days on legislation to avert a government shutdown. Current funding for the agencies expires at midnight on Friday.
