Ending government shutdowns forever

I guess Congress could pass an automatic continuing resolution. But wouldn't it be better if Congress just made it clear that Benjamin Civiletti's legal memorandum is incorrect, and we can go back to how missed budget deadlines were handled in the first 200 years of this country's history?

Shutdowns are a waste of time and money, and they open the nation up to real peril if an unforeseen emergency should arise during a shut down.
