H. CON. RES. 56
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
May 26, 2011
Mr. Flores submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and in addition to the Committee on House Administration, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned
Expressing the sense of Congress that Members of Congress, the President, and the Vice President should donate their salaries to the Treasury for reducing the national debt if members of the Armed Forces do not receive pay or allowances because of a shutdown of the Federal Government or because the Government is unable to fund such pay and allowances because the public debt limit has been reached.
That it is the sense of Congress that if during any period of a fiscal year interim or full-year appropriations for the personnel accounts of the Armed Forces have not been enacted, or the Federal Government is unable to make payments from such accounts because the public debt limit under section 3101 of title 31, United States Code, has been reached, Members of Congress, the President, and the Vice President should donate any salary received for that period to the Treasury for purposes of reducing the national debt.
