Rep. Curtis introduces ‘No Work, No Pay Act,’ revoking pay of reps in Washington during federal shutdowns

WASHINGTON — Representative John Curtis (R-UT), on the first day of the new Congress in Washington, introduced a bill to prohibit U.S. Senators and Congressional representatives from being paid during federal agency shutdowns.

H.R. 26, the “No Work, No Pay Act of 2019,” would prohibit the payment of Senators and Representatives when any federal agency is shut down “due to a lapse in funding appropriated by Congress,” a press release sent by Curtis said.
