Texas Congressman Supports No Labels Proposal to Withhold Congressional Pay for Late Budget and Spending Bills
This week Rep. Randy Neugebauer became a co-sponsor of the No Labels-backed No Budget, No Pay Act (H.R. 3643/S. 1981), which would suspend pay for members of Congress if they fail to pass a concurrent budget resolution and all 12 annual spending bills on time. Rep. Neugebauer’s support brings the total count to 75 bipartisan co-sponsors for the legislation.
“By supporting No Budget, No Pay, Rep. Neugebauer is showing his constituents that he’s willing to put his money where his mouth is,” said No Labels Co-Founder Mark McKinnon. “Over the last 60 years, Congress has passed a joint budget and all spending bills on schedule only four times. Rep. Neugebauer understands No Budget, No Pay is key to solving this problem, and we look forward to his continued leadership as we work to turn this bill into law.”
