Hold Congress Accountable Act

H.R.211

The Hold Congress Accountable Act is bipartisan legislation to reduce the salary of Members of Congress in the event of a government shutdown for as long as the shutdown continues. Rep. Schrader first introduced a version of the Hold Congress Accountable Act in 2013 immediately following the start of the government shutdown in October of that year, and has reintroduced the bill every Congress since.
