Returning the money

Taking a quick break from the road to the Superbowl, a link was posted by The Post-Gazette (at least I’m pretty sure it was the PG).  Remember a while back there was that big to do about the automatic pay raises that the members of the State House and Senate get?  Slowly but surely, most of them promised not to take it.

Well, from what I can gather, it seems that the raise is given out no matter what (probably something to do with their payroll system), and no foul there, no one can really control that I suppose except the Accounting department.  Well, as it turns out, only one third of the lawmakers have returned their pay raises thus far.

Interesting read, check it out, and be sure to contact your congressman if you feel he or she has a check to write.
