Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) announced today that she will donate her salary as a United States Senator to a charity in the State of Nevada for every day the government remains shutdown by President Trump and Senator McConnell.
“Every Member of Congress must come together and work to find a solution to end the Trump shutdown. I will not go home and will not take a salary for as long as my constituents are being impacted by President Trump’s irresponsible choice to shut down the government. Senator McConnell and President Trump have an opportunity to work in a bipartisan way for the benefit of all Americans. It is time to work together on a bipartisan compromise that puts Dreamers on a pathway to citizenship and ensures the long-term health, economic and security needs of all Nevadans.”
