As the federal government shutdown neared the end of its first week, the House approved a measure to give back pay to all furloughed workers once the shutdown is over.
The Senate and President Obama are expected to approve that bill.
Despite the rare show of unity, there isn't any deal in sight to end the shutdown stalemate.
And now those politics in Washington are hitting home in Wisconsin.
Seven state parks, including Devil's Lake State Park in Baraboo, receive money from the federal government.
But leaders with the Wisconsin DNR have refused the federal government's requests to shut the park down.
That's a development that pleased Boy Scout Troop 47 from Sun Prairie, who, despite the weekend rain, made their annual trip to Devil's Lake State Park on Saturday.
Troop 47 is one of about 1,500 Boy and Girl Scout Troops from across the state that come to Baraboo for the annual Scout's Jamboree.
