Sylvia Mathews Burwell, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said in a statement that federal employees should expect to return to work on Thursday.

"Now that the bill has passed the United States Senate and the House of Representatives, the President plans to sign it tonight and employees should expect to return to work in the morning," she said. "Employees should be checking the news and OPM's website for further updates."

 Maryland has been particularly vulnerable to the shutdown, with 314,000 residents — a tenth of the state's workforce — employed by the federal government and another 250,000 working for federal contractors. State officials say Maryland lost $5 million a day in revenue since agencies closed.
