WASHINGTON, D.C. \u2014 U.s. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo, has co-sponsored a bill that would put an end to government shutdowns.\r\n\r\nThe announcement comes as Congress is on the brink of a second government shutdown this year.\r\n\r\n"Government shutdowns do not benefit anyone and actually end up costing taxpayers more money," Enzi said in a statement.\r\n\r\nThe legislation is an updated version of the Prevent Government Shutdowns Act. If signed into law, the bill would set up an automatic Continuing Resolution at the current spending level until an agreement on funding is enacted.\r\n\r\nThe bill is sponsored by U.S. Senators James Lankford (R-Oklahoma), and Maggie Hassan, a Democrat from New Hampshire. Enzi is a co-sponsor along with U.S. Senators Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin), Angus King (I-Maine), and Tim Kaine (D-Virginia).\r\n\r\n"This legislation would help hold Congress accountable while avoiding irresponsible funding lapses," Enzi said. "It is time to end unnecessary government shutdowns for good."
