Missouri Senator Roy Blunt plans to introduce a bill to keep the country moving -- despite automatic spending cuts.

Blunt says some federal workers like air traffic controllers and food safety inspectors aren't allowed to go to work during sequestration.

Blunt says a federal meat packing plant in northern Missouri might be forced to close unless the government lets a food safety inspector go to work.

He says the rest of the country shouldn't have to put their lives on hold because important workers are told to stay home.
