Senator Young to Donate Salary During Government Shutdown

January 20, 2018-Senator Todd Young says he will donate his salary to the Marine Corps
Scholarship Foundation until the government reopens. Senator Young released the following statement regarding the shut down via e-mail:

“When given the opportunity to extend the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
for more than 104,000 Hoosier children, provide for our servicemembers, lift the
burden of the job-killing medical device tax, and keep government functions
operating, some of my colleagues took a pass. For reasons I can’t understand, they
voted to shut down the government even though they support the bill. I will continue
working through the weekend to ensure that a solution is reached for the good of
Hoosiers and all Americans. I will also be donating my salary to the Marine Corps
Scholarship Foundation until the government reopens.”
