Iowa State Representative Jarad Klein is calling to cease congressional pay until the government shutdown ends. Klein states that those in D.C. should follow the example of Iowa’s split government and not get paid when work isn’t getting done, just as Iowa’s legislators aren’t paid beyond the session, regardless of whether business is complete. The partial federal government shutdown began a week ago today and caused Iowa National Guard training sessions in Washington over the weekend to be cancelled.
