Heller Introduces “No Budget, No Pay” as Amendment to Continuing Resolution (Washington, D.C.) – Yesterday, U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) introduced his legislation, “No Budget, No Pay,” as an amendment to the Continuing Resolution (H.J. Res. 59). Heller’s amendment requires Members of Congress to pass final budget resolutions and all twelve appropriations bills in order to receive pay. “The only reason this nation is yet again facing the possibility of a government shutdown is because Congress failed to do its job in the first place, which is to pass a long-term budget and appropriations bills. As a result, the American people are held hostage by Washington’s out-of-control spending and forced to observe as Congress jumps from crisis to crisis. ‘No Budget, No Pay’ demands that Members of Congress either pass a long-term budget on time or forego their pay. It’s time to put a stop to this culture of congressional bailouts,” said Senator Dean Heller. On January 23, 2013, Heller reintroduced “No Budget, No Pay” in the 113th Congress. This version of the bill requires the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives to pass a budget and all appropriations bills by the beginning of each fiscal year in order to receive pay. One week later, Congress adopted a version of “No Budget, No Pay.” That measure did not require the House and Senate to go to conference or pass appropriations bills. In April, after both chambers passed their own budgets, Heller wrote a letter to the Chairman and Chairwoman of the Senate and House of Representatives Budget Committees, urging them to go to conference and formulate a final bipartisan, bicameral budget resolution.
