Lawmakers in the nation’s capital took a step forward Wednesday, hoping to avoid another government shutdown Thursday night. 

Senators unveiled a two-year budget deal that has support from both sides of the aisle.

It calls for spending increases in both military and domestic programs.

Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe said this is an important step forward.

“The American people, by and large, think that America has the best of everything. Well, that used to be true. But it's not true anymore and it will be if we maintain the path that we're starting today to start rebuilding the military,” Inhofe said. 

The deal also received positive reviews from the White House.
