first_imgOLYMPIA — Three members of Washington state’s 12-member congressional delegation have promised to give up their pay during the federal government shutdown that began Tuesday.Reps. Derek Kilmer and Suzan DelBene, both Democrats, and Republican Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, have all confirmed that they will forgo their salary for the duration of the shutdown. Members of the House and Senate make $174,000 a year, and some in leadership roles make more.While the three will automatically be paid during the time, they will return the amount equitable to their salary to the U.S. Department of Treasury. Since March, DelBene has already been returning 8.2 percent of her salary each month to Treasury in response to across-the-board budget cuts, known as sequestration, that were done earlier this year.Kilmer and DelBene announced their decision on Twitter, and a spokeswoman for the House Republican Conference confirmed McMorris Rodgers’ stand by email.In a statement issued on Monday, Kilmer said that he believed “in leading by example.”“If Congress can’t get its act together to stop a government shutdown, then I don’t believe Members of Congress should be paid,” he wrote.Republican Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler will donate 100 percent of her salary to a charity in her district until Congress “gets the government back up and running,” said her spokesman, Casey Bowman.last_img read more
