ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - With thousands of New Mexico federal workers furloughed and angry about the shutdown, all but one of New Mexico's five members of Congress say they'll give up their pay while it continues.
Sen. Tom Udall and Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham both plan to donate theirs to charity and Rep. Ben Ray Lujan says he'll give part of his to charity.
Rep. Steve Pearce says he'll give his money back to the treasury, but Sen. Martin Heinrich says he's keeping his paycheck because he thinks all federal workers should be paid during the shutdown.
And, to back that up, he has co-sponsored a bill to reinstate pay for furloughed federal workers.
Members of Congress are paid $174,000 a year.
