The text of the bill below is as of Jul 22, 2013 (Introduced).

Summary of this bill

This was the "vehicle" for passage of the bill that ended the government shutdown and raised the debt ceiling. This bill was introduced regarding an unrelated matter. It had been passed by the House. On Oct. 16, the Senate amended the text of the bill, rewriting it completely with the negotiated deal. The Senate then passed the revised bill and sent it back to the House for a final vote. The revised text will appear on GovTrack in the next few days, after it is printed by the Government Printing Office.
