H.R. 3393: Spending Accountability Act

H.R. 3993: Spending Accountability Act was sponsored by Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI) on February 5th, 2014.

It was introduced and referred to Committee on the same day and the prognosis is that it has an 18% chance of getting past the committee.

Bill Title/Explanation:

To provide for a 15% reduction in the rates of pay of Members of Congress for pay periods occurring during a year if a Federal budget deficit existed during the most recent fiscal year.

No summary is available at this time and it is obvious to provide Congress the incentive to properly budget, one of the major tasks required by constitutional law.
