Dear Colleague,

In the real world, if you don’t do your job, you don’t get paid. It should be no different for lawmakers who fail to do our primary job here in Congress, keeping the government open.

We continue to recover from the damage of the 35 day shutdown and yet we are barreling towards another potential shutdown on the 15th. That’s why I want you to be aware that I reintroduced HR 211, the Hold Congress Accountable Act. This bill prevents Members
from being paid in the event of a government shutdown. If we are foolish enough to continue letting the process break down, we should have our pay reduced for each day of any shutdown.

If you would like more information or are interested in cosponsoring HR 211,the Hold Congress Accountable Act, please reach out to Zach Stokes in my office at or 55711.


Member of Congress
