Foster to donate pay during shutdown to Northern Illinois Food Bank

U.S. Rep. Bill Foster, D-Naperville, issued the following press release:

Congressman Bill Foster announced he will be donating his pay earned during the government shutdown to the Northern Illinois Food Bank.

“Because of a small group of intransigent Tea Party extremists, Congress has failed to pass a budget and shutdown the government – a reckless action which could have a devastating impact on our still struggling economy,” said Foster. “Until Congress ends this irresponsible shutdown, I will donate my pay to charity.”  

A prolonged shutdown will have a serious impact on our economy which is still struggling from the worst recession since the Great Depression. Economists estimate that a shutdown lasting three to four weeks will cost about $55 billion.
