WASHINGTON - US House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on Friday that a deal had been struck on funding the federal government for the rest of the fiscal year that ends on Sept. 30, ending fears of a government shutdown.

"I am pleased Senator Reid and I and the White House have been able to come to an agreement that will in fact cut spending and keep our government open," Boehner told reporters.

He added that the House will vote later on Friday on a stopgap bill to keep the government open beyond midnight and until the broader spending bill can be written and passed by Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama.
