Rep. Ralph Hall requests pay to be withheld

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Texas Congressman Ralph Hall, who represents Delta, Fannin, Grayson and Lamar Counties, is requesting his pay be withheld.

In addition Hall also introduced the Pay Accountability Act yesterday, that would withhold the salaries of the President, Vice President and Members of Congress during any lapse in federal government shutdowns.

The bill would take their salaries and put them towards the national debt. Hall is hoping the bill will put pressure on the President and Members of Congress to reach a budget solution.
