U.S. Rep. Lloyd Smucker was among a small group of rank-and-file members of Congress this week to meet with President Donald Trump at the White House to discuss the protracted partial government shutdown.

And while Smucker and others referred to the meeting as productive, there’s still, at least publicly, no end in sight.

Meanwhile, Smucker — the Republican who represents all of Lancaster County in Congress — re-introduced a bill to prevent shutdowns in the first place, one that has been repeatedly introduced but come up short for decades.
