Proposed Debt Deal Would Raise Ceiling Until February

Will it be accepted?


An emerging Senate deal would raise the nation's $16.7 trillion debt ceiling until mid-February, according to Senate aides.

There were conflicting claims on how long the extension would last, with one aide saying it would go to Feb. 15 and another saying Feb. 7.

It would immediately reopen the government and fund it until Jan. 15, the aides said.
