King Votes Against No Budget, No Pay


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Steve King released the following statement after voting against the "No Budget, No Pay" Act:

"The American people rightfully expect Congress to do its job, and that includes passing a budget." said King. "However, while I support the concept of the 'No Budget, No Pay' bill, the 27th Amendment to our Constitution specifically says 'No law, varying the compensation for services of Senators and Representatives, shall take effect' until after an intervening election. The language is clear and unambiguous. I support the spirit of the bill, but it did not meet Constitutional standards.

Each member takes their own oath of fidelity to the constitution, and I respect the view of my colleagues who disagree. In order to keep my oath to the Constitution, my only choice was to vote no."
