At least two Indiana lawmakers are asking for their pay to be withheld during the government shutdown.
Rep. Todd Young, R-District 9, sent a letter to the Chief Administrative Office Tuesday morning.

Congressman Larry Bucshon,R-District 8, has also asked for his pay to be withheld.
It’s not clear if any of Indiana’s other representatives or congressmen will follow suit.
Meanwhile, representatives and congressmen from both sides of the aisle and from around the country have offered to donate their earnings to local charities during the shutdown.
