HUNTER CALLS FOR ACTION ON BILL TO GUARANTEE MILITARY PAYCHECKS AS DEBT LIMIT REACHED

 

May 25, 2011 (Washington D.C) With the U.S. government expected to hit the $14.294 trillion debt ceiling this week, Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-El Cajon), a member of the House Armed Services Committee and veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, called for action on H.R. 1551, the Guarantee Paychecks for America’s Military Families Act. 

 

The legislation guarantees that, in the event the debt limit is reached or a lapse in federal funding occurs, all military families, in addition to civilians working in combat zones, continue to receive paychecks.  Cosponsors include San Diego representatives Bob Filner, a Democrat, and Republican Brian Bilbray.
