Lankford Files Shutdown Prevention Act

Congressman James Lankford introduced the Government Shutdown Prevention Act of 2011 today as part of a comprehensive set of ten budget reform bills unveiled by the House Budget Committee and Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI).
The measure is designed to avoid lapses in government funding and services if Congress fails to pass a budget or the corresponding appropriations bills in a fiscal year.

“This legislation is about getting Congress to appropriately perform its most basic function,” said Congressman Lankford, “and that is ensuring funds are appropriated for government services.”
