Cooper: Make Congress pass budget or forgo pay

U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper of Tennessee’s 5th Congressional District, in a press release posted by Tom Humphrey, says he has filed a bill that would require Congress to pass its annual spending measure by the deadline if members want to get paid on time. The Senate sponsor is Republican Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada.

Perhaps not coincidentally, this is item number one on NoLabels’ list of 12 suggestions to “Make Congress Work.”
