Latta, Brown Say They Don't Want To Be Paid Until Federal Shutdown Ends

Ohio Republican Congressman Bob Latta and Democratic U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio say they don't want to get paid during the federal government shutdown. 

 Latta wants his salary withheld until soldiers get paid. Brown, who is running for re-election this year, says he will donate his paycheck to a diaper bank. The Senate has scheduled a vote on a spending bill for later today.
