      Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said on Wednesday he will donate his Senate pay to Vermont charities while federal employees go without paycheck during the partial shutdown of the federal government.

      “If the Trump initiated shutdown is not resolved shortly, hundreds of thousands of federal employees will not receive their paychecks – including more than 1,300 Vermonters. I will do everything I can to end this destructive shutdown as soon as possible. During the time that federal employees do not receive a paycheck, I will be donating my U.S. Senate salary to Vermont charities.”
