Updated: Tuesday, October 15 2013, 07:32 PM CDT
WASHINGTON   --   A spokesman for Speaker John Boehner says the house will vote tonight on legislation that would reopen the government and avert a financial default.

The proposed bill would keep the government operating until December 15th and let the treasury borrow money until February 7th.
It also says members of congress, the president, vice president and thousands of congressional aides would no longer be eligible to receive employer health care contributions from the government that employs them.
There was no immediate reaction from the White House or democrats, who had objected to an earlier version of the House GOP bill.Debt Ceiling latest - House to vote on new bill
