Done deal with damage

People can do business with all federal government agencies, or visit national parks and monuments today after Congress passed and the president signed temporary funding and borrowing measures. But the dispute hasn't been without cost. Standard & Poor's estimates the shutdown has taken $24 billion out of the economy. And the debate is likely to regenerate in a couple of months as new deadlines loom.  Area lawmakers react on Sunrise.

The International Monetary Fund is appealing to Washington today for more stable management of the nation's finances. Asian stock markets gained ground on news of the agreement.
