(CNN) — Federal workers should expect to return to work Thursday morning, said Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

“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. Employees should be checking the news and OPM’s website for further updates,” Burwell said.
