Senator Lankford Discusses Frustrations With Appropriations Process On the Senate Floor
Senator James Lankford (R-OK) James Lankford took to the Senate Floor on Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020 to share his frustrations with the possible looming government shutdown. Congress must take action by September 30th which is the funding deadline. Lankford says he wants government shutdowns off the table because they only add to our nation’s debt and harm Americans. Earlier this year, Lankford moved to place his bill to end government shutdowns on the legislative calendar to be voted on by the full Senate, but a vote has yet to be scheduled.
