Sinema’s bipartisan No Budget, No Pay Act holds members of Congress accountable for passing spending bills
WASHINGTON – Arizona senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema cosponsored the bipartisan No Budget, No Pay Act, that holds members of Congress accountable by requiring them to pass spending bills—and prevent a shutdown in federal services—in order to get paid.
“Keeping federal services operating is a basic duty of Congress. If members of Congress fail to do their jobs, then they shouldn’t get paid,” said Sinema.
Sinema’s bipartisan No Budget, No Pay Act requires Congress to pass the annual federal spending bills, otherwise members of Congress will not get paid. Last Congress, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee included Sinema’s No Budget, No Pay Act in its bipartisan Prevent Government Shutdowns Act.
Sinema has consistently sponsored the bipartisan No Budget, No Pay Act since she was elected to Congress.
