WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says there is bipartisan compromise to end the partial shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration that has left 74,000 transportation and construction workers idled.
In a statement Thursday, the majority leader did not specify details.
But other officials say they expect the Senate to accept a House-passed bill as early as Friday.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity, saying the precise terms remain confidential.
