Military To Be Paid During Government Shutdown


WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on legislation which has passed the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate ensuring our men and women in military uniform continue to be paid during a government shutdown. The legislation was signed into law late last night by President Obama.

As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Graham has made it a priority to ensure our men and women in uniform are not denied their paychecks during a government shutdown.

Last week Graham warned that anyone who stood in the way of paying our troops during a government shutdown would, "make an enemy of me for life."

Graham said:

"I'm extremely pleased that Senate Democrats have now agreed with House and Senate Republicans that our military deserves to be paid. It's the least we can do for the men and women in uniform who continue to risk their lives in defense of our nation."
