Pence says he won't accept pay raise he's due to receive
Vice President Mike Pence told reporters he won't take a raise he's scheduled to receive. Pence is among the political appointees due to receive annual raises of about $10,000, because an existing pay freeze has lapsed as Congress hasn't passed bills funding the government. The pay of Pence is scheduled to rise from $230,700 to $243,500, The Washington Post reported. It's not clear how other officials will handle the increase in pay.
