McNeill Withdraws Pay Suspension Proposal

On June 17, State Rep. Dan McNeill proposed a suspension of all pay and per diems to members of both the state legislature and Wolf cabinet if they were unable to cobble together a budget by June 30. He claimed it "is our basic fiduciary duty and a core function of state government to carry out this obligation." Well, there's still no budget, and legislators like Mike Schlossberg took their Summer vacations despite the impasse.

McNeill received exactly Dan received ONE co-sponsor response. Republican Duane Milne, from Chester County. Not ONE Democrat would support the bill, but he did received a ton of negative comments from his colleagues in the land of midnight payraises.

As a result, McNeill has withdrawn his bill.

This was nothing more than a political stunt. Could not even find it on the House website. His only accomplishments are a few citations and playing political puppet for Pawlowski and Fleck.

I thought it was a compelling idea, if the goal was to get the two sides together. I am embarrassed that only one legislator co-sponsored.
