Pass Far and wide
Contact your District Congressman and demand they Cosponsor H.R. 6085
The bill is referred to by Congressman Boustany as “No Show, No Pay” Act.
On Tuesday, in a statement concerning HR 6085 Boustany said:
“Serving as a Member of Congress is not a part-time job. The primary duty of a Member of Congress is to advocate on behalf of its constituency by casting important votes. Some of my colleagues take their office for granted and refuse to accept this responsibility. They habitually miss important votes on key policy initiatives and legislation by leaving early or arriving late in order to attend fundraising and campaign events.
By Mr. BOUSTANY:
Congress has the power to enact this legislation pursuant
to the following:
Article 1, Section 9, Clause 7 which states that no money
shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of
Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and
Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money
shall be published from time to time. The Appropriations
Clause provides Congress with a mechanism to control or to
limit spending by the federal government
Latest Major Action: 7/9/2012 Referred to House committee. Status: Referred to the House Committee on House Administration.
