Duarte Tells House of Representatives to Withhold His Pay During Possible Government Shutdown
Washington, September 29, 2023
WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman John Duarte (CA-13) sent a letter to the Chief Administrative Officer of the House of Representatives requesting to have his pay withheld in the event of a government shutdown.
“In the event of a government shutdown, federal employees will go without pay while Members of Congress continue receiving their pay. Therefore, I requested that my pay also be withheld if there is a shutdown, until our government reopens," said Rep. Duarte.
