Washington, DC – Congresswoman Donna F. Edwards (MD-4) released the following statement today on her congressional salary.

“Effective March 1, 2013, in addition to cutting office expenses, all of our staff have taken a 2 percent across the board pay cut to avoid any individual serving the Fourth District from being furloughed in order to meet the 8.2 percent arbitrary, across-the-board cuts called for by the sequester. I will donate an equivalent portion of my salary divided between domestic violence charities serving Prince George's County and Anne Arundel County.”
