Some PA Congressmen Won't Take Shutdown Pay

A growing number of Pennsylvania's members of Congress say they won't take a paycheck while the federal government is shut down.
A spokesman for the U.S House's chief administrative office said Monday that monthly paychecks aren't due until the end of the month. So no U.S. House member has missed a paycheck, and won't unless the shutdown continues into November. Senators are paid twice a month.
More than half the members of Pennsylvania's 20-person congressional delegation say they've asked for their pay to be withheld, including Sens. Pat Toomey and Bob Casey. Some congressmen haven't responded to The Associated Press' inquiries and U.S. House's chief administrative office won't say whose pay it's been asked to withhold.
Most U.S. House and Senate members make $174,000 a year.
