Montana Congressman Supports No Labels Proposal to Dock Congressional Pay for Late Budget and Spending Bills
Yesterday Rep. Danny Rehberg became a sponsor of the No Labels-backed No Budget, No Pay Act (H.R. 3643/S. 1981), which will withhold pay for members of Congress if they fail to pass a concurrent budget resolution and all 12 annual spending bills on time. Rep. Rehberg joins a group of 65 bipartisan co-sponsors of the bill.
“By sponsoring No Budget, No Pay, Rep. Rehberg is holding Congress to the same simple standard as America workers, who know that you don’t get paid if you don’t do your job,” said No Labels Co-Founder Mark McKinnon. “We are thrilled to have Congressman Rehberg’s leadership on this legislation. In the last 14 years, spending bills have been submitted an average of four months late. Our budget process is clearly broken, and No Budget, No Pay would be a big first step toward fixing it.”
