(WWBT) - Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) has introduced a bill that would prevent government shutdowns.

The “End Shutdowns Act” would institute an automatic continuing resolution at the end of each fiscal year, which is Oct. 1 to prevent federal agencies from going without funding.

The bill also prohibits the Senate from taking up any non-emergency legislation until a spending agreement has been enacted.
