Operations for Rep. Wenstrup’s Office During Funding Lapse
Wenstrup will Donate Salary to Charity, Furlough Most Office Staff
Representative Brad Wenstrup released the following statement upon the Senate’s failure to pass legislation to continue funding the government:
Representative Wenstrup will donate his salary to Wounded Warriors Project and Cincinnati’s Freestore Foodbank for the duration of any shutdown. “I can’t accept a salary while veterans and government employees are left empty-handed. It’s not appropriate and it’s not fair.”
Wenstrup’s congressional office will furlough 70 percent of current staff in line with Constitutional obligations under lapsed appropriations. Second District constituents can reach Wenstrup’s office at (202) 225-3164 for emergency casework issues.
All media inquiries during a lapse of federal appropriations should be directed to (202) 225-3164
