Families of fallen troops are back on the government payroll.
Thursday night President Barack Obama signed a bill to continue financial benefits the government shutdown cut off.
President Obama only waited couple hours to sign the bill into law. Wednesday the House passed the bill and then the Senate followed suit Thursday.
This law comes a day after Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced a military charity (the Fisher House Foundation) would supply payment to the families during the shutdown. The lapse in funding meant the Pentagon had no authority to continue the payments.
The Pentagon typically pays out $100,000 within three days of a service member's death. Twenty-nine members of the military have died during active duty since parts of the government shut down on Oct. 1.
Authorities are expected to release the results of autopsies on the two bodies recovered from the fiery crash that killed "Fast & Furious" actor Paul Walker and his friend.
"Fast & Furious" star Paul Walker was killed by injuries from both the impact and subsequent fire when the Porsche his friend was driving smashed into a light pole and tree, according to an autopsy released Wednesday.
