Rep. Latta Introduces Legislation to Repeal Automatic Pay Increase for Members of Congress

WASHINGTON - This week, Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) introduced H.R. 431, a bill that if passed, would repeal the provision of law that provides for the automatic pay increase that Members of Congress receive. Congressman Latta also introduced this legislation during the 111th Congress.

“As our nation continues to struggle through this economic downturn, Members of Congress should not receive an automatic pay increase. I look forward to swift action on this piece of legislation,” Latta stated after introducing the legislation.
H.R. 431 has been referred to the Committee on House Administration in addition to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
