Exclusive: Legislative Summary, Full Text of Senate Debt Deal Revealed

Breitbart News has obtained a legislative summary of the provisions in the Senate deal to reopen government and extend the debt ceiling. Breitbart News has also obtained a copy of the legislative text. Currently, Senate staff are able to review the summary and legislative text in the Senate cloakroom, but aren’t allowed to retain a copy or make it public. In the interest of transparency, we have included the document below.

As expected, the deal provides full back-pay for furloughed federal workers who haven’t been at work for two weeks. It also provides back-pay, though, for state government workers who were furloughed because their work is supported by federal grants. 

Full legislative text of the agreement is posted below.
