(Washington, DC) -- U-S Representative Angie Craig is sponsoring an amendment that would block salary increases for members of Congress. A spending package expected on the House floor this week would allow for a pay raise in fiscal year 2020. The Second District Democrat said, "with Minnesota families seeing stagnant or falling wages for far too long, taking a pay raise at taxpayer expense is just wrong." Craig is also co-sponsoring the For the People Act, which she says increases transparency in campaign finance and bans members of Congress from serving on for-profit corporate boards.
