ND Delegation Votes in Favor of Ending Shutdown

Posted: Updated:

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - All three members of North Dakota's congressional delegation voted in favor of the measure that has ended the 16-day partial shutdown of the federal government and averted the possibility of a national default, but Senators John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp and Representative Kevin Cramer all say there is much work to be done to find long-term solutions to government spending and the national deficit. 

Hoeven and Cramer are Republicans, and Heitkamp a Democrat. 

The federal government has reopened its doors after Congress on Wednesday approved the bipartisan measure ending the shutdown and President Obama signed it early Thursday.
