WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says there is bipartisan compromise to end the partial shutdown of the Federal Aviation Administration that has idled thousands transportation and construction workers.

In a statement Thursday, the majority leader did not specify details.

But other officials say they expect the Senate to accept a House-passed bill as early as Friday.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity, saying the precise terms remain confidential.
