WASHINGTON (AP) -- The tale of the missing "s" is about to end.

The Senate and House moved on Tuesday to restore the missing letter to the word "accounts" in a bill that will allow the Federal Aviation Administration to withdraw its furloughs of air traffic controllers.

Lawmakers had rushed to pass the bill last week before lawmakers left town for their week-long break. The typo had held up the bill and President Barack Obama was unable to sign it.

The furloughs had caused coast-to-coast flight delays that angered thousands of travelers. The FAA was already resuming normal operations, moving ahead despite the technical glitch in the legislation.
