Bill Provides a Short-Term Increase in the Deb Limit and Requires the House and Senate to Pass a Budget Before Members of Congress Get Paid
Monday, January 21, 2013
1) Allows the United States Treasury to issue new debt through May 18, 2013, in order to ensure complete and timely payment of obligations due; and,
2) Withholds pay from Members of Congress starting on April 15, 2013, until whichever occurs first: the respective body in which they serve (the House or Senate) passes a budget or the end of the Congress.
House Administration Committee Chairwoman Candice Miller (R-MI) was an original co-sponsor. The Committee on Ways and Means has jurisdiction over the debt limit. The Committee on House Administration has jurisdiction over salaries of Members of Congress.
