WASHINGTON (AP) -- It's back to work for hundreds of thousands of furloughed government employees.

President Barack Obama has signed legislation ending the partial government shutdown and averting a U.S. default by allowing the Treasury to borrow normally at least through Feb. 7.

The government is funded through Jan. 15.
