The U.S. Senate is sending the House's "No Budget, No Pay" legislation to the President's desk for signing. The legislation requires both the House and Senate to each pass a budget, failure to do so would result in pay being withheld for members of that legislative body. Congressman Fred Upton who championed the legislation says "it's a straightforward concept, if you don't do your work, you don't get paid." It also temporarily raises the debt ceiling to allow the U.S. government to meet its obligations through May 18th.
