WASHINGTON -- Congressman Anthony Brindisi is calling for a stop to congressional pay raises.
He says the automatic pay raise shouldn't happen anymore.
“Too many hardworking Upstate New Yorkers still struggle make ends meet, and the last thing we should do is give Washington a pay raise,” said Brindisi in a statement. “That’s why I fought against a member pay raise, and I’ll continue oppose it. Let’s do what the people sent us here to do: work together to support our veterans, help family farmers, build infrastructure, and lower health care costs”
The effort to change the language of the spending bill passed the House Rules Committee, and is expected to go to a full vote next week.
Brindisi is one of more than a dozen lawmakers making the push.
