City Pages lists state reps not taking pay during shutdown

City Pages has published a list of 48 state representatives not taking their state pay during the shutdown.

There are 134 state representatives in the Legislature; do you think the rest will jump on the no-pay bandwagon now that a list is out?

    I am not surprised that I do not see Rep. Matt Dean’s name on this list.

    Per Diem
    I would be interested in knowing the names of the legislators from the greater metro area counties who forgo any Per Diem reimbursements during the State Shutdown. (“Per Diem” pays for Legislators’ travel and living expenses.) According to an article by Jake Grovum, the Per Diem is “$96 per day for senators and $77 for representatives” (
    Thank you!

    I find it interesting that 28 Democrats are listed as forgoing salary during the Shutdown compared to only 20 Republicans. Which party has the majority in the House of Representatives?

    Not surprised to not see the Zellers name here. That’s because he has no other job. Wingnut posters, next time you whine about Governor Dayton not ever having a real job, think of Zellers.

    Does it make any difference? As I undrstamd it, the legislative pay is only deferred – all will get their pay later.
