but it's far better than what some have sought. >> reporter: votes could take place late today and tonight. if congress doesn't pass a bill the government reaches its borrowing limit tomorrow and may not have the money to pay its debt. senate leaders said a plan is in place. >> the compromise we reached will provide our economy with the stability it needs. >> reporter: they hope the house will pass it in the next couple of hours. the senate will meet after dinner east coast time late afternoon for us. ryan takeo, kpix 5. kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks joins us with what's happening. >> reporter: there are long term issues in play but we are looking at the debt ceiling deadline tomorrow which could have forced the news default. it sparked a global financial crisis. investors are happy that may not happen as long as we get that deal signed today. as a result, stocks are surging quite a bit higher.
let's check the big board right now. the dow up by 156 points! nasdaq is up 38. s&p moving higher by 18 points. hopefully we'll lock these gains in by the close today and continue them throughout the week if the deal is signed. >> yeah, absolutely. will today's agreement have any effect on the federal reserve's policy decisions? >> reporter: that's a big issue talking about shrinking their monthly bond purchases but it probably won't have any impact, first because it's a temporary agreement that would last only for a few months. also we are seeing a lot of impact on economic growth from the shutdown. the fed's beige book indicating slowing growth in several key markets also builder sentiment pulling because back of uncertainty. wall street hates uncertainty and the fed will probably keep its bond purchases intact until we have a long-term budget plan in place. >> thank you, jason brooks from kcbs news. we have more coverage on the new deal on capitol hill at our website, kpix.com. click on "news" and then go to the politics tab. this just into our
