WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today released the following statement regarding the No Budget, No Pay Act:
“For nearly four years, the Democrat-led Senate has failed to meet its most basic obligation by refusing to pass a budget. Americans in the private sector face consequences for failing to do their jobs, and I strongly believe that we should impose the same accountability on Members of Congress. The objective of the No Budget, No Pay Act is simple: if you don’t do your work, you don’t get paid.
The Committee on Rules will hold an emergency meeting on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 2:00 PM in H-313 The Capitol on H.R. 325, to ensure the complete and timely payment of the obligations of the United States Government until May 19, 2013, and for other purposes.
The Committee on Rules filed its Survey of Activities for the 112th Congress on January 3, 2013. This report contains a complete listing of the Committee's activities, as well as statistical, historical, and other background information.
