A bill to repeal the provision of law that provides automatic pay adjustments for Members of Congress.
Amends the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1946 to eliminate automatic pay adjustments for Members of Congress. Makes it out of order in the Senate to consider a bill, amendment, resolution, or conference report containing any provision that adjusts the pay of Members of Congress, unless that provision has been subject to a roll call in the Senate. Permits waiver or suspension of such requirements, or successful appeals from rulings of the Chair, only by an affirmative vote of three-fifths (60) of the Senate.
