President signs debt bill: Government workers recalled

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House is directing all government agencies to reopen promptly now that the partial government shutdown has ended.
 
President Barack Obama signed a measure early Thursday reopening the government and extending the nation's borrowing authority.
 
Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, says all furloughed workers should return to work on their next scheduled work day. For most workers, that's Thursday morning.
 
Burwell says the administration will work with agencies to transition back to full operating status as smoothly as possible. She's thanking federal employees for continuing to serve the American people.
 
Hundreds of thousands of workers have been furloughed since the shutdown started Oct. 1. The measure Obama signed restores government funding through Jan. 15 and extends the borrowing authority through Feb. 7.
