House members voted on Friday to pass the Legislative Branch budget for fiscal year 2013, which includes their own salaries as well as those of their staff. Though funding across the House of Representatives has been reduced by 10.5 percent since Republicans took control of the chamber in 2011, according to House Appropriations Chairman Rep. Harold Rogers, R-Ky., salaries and members’ representational allowances will remain unchanged in 2013 if the Senate approves the bill.
The total for operations and maintenance of the House in fiscal year 2012—and now proposed for 2013--is $1.2 billion.
