On Thursday, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford took to the Senate floor to give statements ahead of the Friday deadline for the federal government to come up with a funding agreement to prevent a government shutdown.

Senator Lankford's Thursday remarks echoed statements that he has made in the past. The Senator continued to push for his bipartisan bill, the "Prevent Government Shutdown Act," which would take shutdowns off the table if funding agreements are not met.

If passed, the bill would automatically continue funding at previous levels until a new funding agreement could be reached.
