Senator McSally Will Not Accept Pay Until Partial Government Shutdown Has Concluded Featured

By Senator McSally Press Release January 10, 2019 43

Introduces "Pay Our Protectors Act" to initiate pay for essential federal law enforcement officers at DHS and DOJ during shutdown

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Martha McSally sent a letter to the financial clerk of the U.S. Senate asking that her paycheck be withheld until the partial government shutdown has concluded.

“Today, I requested that my pay be withheld until the partial government shutdown is over, and I cosponsored legislation to block Members of Congress from receiving a paycheck when a budget and funding bills aren’t completed by the start of the fiscal year,” Sen. McSally said. “I also just introduced legislation to pay federal law enforcement officers as they continue to serve during the partial shutdown. I don’t believe Members of Congress should get paid while those who keep us safe, like our border patrol agents and CBP officers at our ports of entry, continue to work tirelessly without pay not knowing how they’ll afford their rent and support their families. Let’s break the gridlock and find a path forward to secure our border and fund the government.”
