HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The effects of the government shutdown are still being assessed. One North Alabama lawmaker said he doesn't believe it'll happen again.

Congressman Robert Aderholt was in Huntsville Monday morning discussing defense programs and touched on the shutdown. He said that he thinks the Democrats learned a lesson this month, and they'll be more willing to negotiate with Republicans if a similar problem comes up next year.

"I think that the Democrats will be more willing to come to the table and say we want to avoid what happened back in October, we want to find a solution to this so we can deal with some of the issues that are important to you, so we don't have to compromise our principles," Aderholt said.

Aderholt said sequestration is still a problem and the new fiscal year didn't change much. He is pressing for targeted cuts, as opposed to across-the-board cuts, which happened last time.
