WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) applauded the House and Senate passage of the Pay Our Military Act (H.R. 3210), which makes certain members of the military are paid in the event of a government shutdown.
“The financial well-being and readiness of those serving our country must not suffer due to gridlock on Capitol Hill,” Sen. Moran said. “As indecision continues, this legislation will give members of the military the certainty they deserve. I hope the President swiftly signs this bill into law.”
The Pay Our Military Act will protect members of the military, U.S. Department of Defense civilian employees and contractors. The bill is similar to legislation introduced by Sens. Moran and Udall in the Senate last week, the Military Pay Protection Act.
