Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin will accept pay she earned during the 16-day government shutdown, according to her press office.
Baldwin had told Newsline 9 she would not accept her paycheck as long as the government was closed.
Now, according to a statement from her press office, "she will accept her pay for her work during that time period now that the shutdown has ended and the government is reopened."
Baldwin's Republican counterpart, Sen. Ron Johnson, will not take his pay that he received during the shutdown, an aide told Newsline 9 Thursday.
Johnson got paid $7,627 during the 16-day shutdown because his pay is direct deposited and that process couldn't be stopped, aide Patrick McIlheran said.
Johnson will return that money in a check to the U.S. Treasury, McIlheran said.
Rep. Ron Kind (D-3rd District) and Rep. Sean Duffy (R-7th District) also said during the shutdown that they asked for pay to be withheld.
Newsline 9 has tried several times to contact Kind to ask if he plans to accept his pay withheld during the shutdown. Our attempts have been unsuccessful.
As for Duffy, his spokeswoman, Cassie Smedile, said in an email that Duffy sent a letter to the Chief Administrative Officer of the House asking for his pay to be withheld. "We have not received further instruction as to whether that is happening or will happen. I will certainly let you know when we hear back from the CAO," Smedile wrote Thursday.
Newsline 9 reached out to Duffy's office again Friday for clarification but has not heard back yet.
