Senator Sherrod Brown’s office said in a statement that the senator “will not accept his federal salary accrued during the government shutdown and will instead donate it to charity. In 2011, Brown pledged to forego his salary in the event of a government shutdown. Following the 1995 shutdown, Brown donated his salary to various charities in his then-House District.”

 

He will give his salary this time to the Ohio-based Honor Flight Network.
