WASHINGTON – Congressman Rob Wittman (R-VA) announced Wednesday that he has reintroduced the “No Budget, No Pay Act” to coincide with the release of Congress’s FY 2017 Budget earlier this week. The measure would require Members of Congress and Senators to forego their salaries unless they pass a budget by April 15, 2016.

“People are sick and tired of government-by-crisis. They want to see Washington at work for them. For far too long, Congress has chosen to fund the government through short-sighted, stop-gap budget measures. It’s time for us to put aside partisan bickering, and get to work on a budget that reflects the will of the people and provides some certainty for businesses and communities in the year ahead.”

Congressman Rob Wittman represents the 1st District of Virginia. He serves on the House Natural Resources Committee and the House Armed Services Committee, where he is Chairman of the Readiness Subcommittee.
