An Oklahoma congressman said he is giving back his salary during the government shutdown Wednesday.

Tulsa’s KTUL reported Congressman Markwayne Mullin is returning his pay to keep his office staffed during this shutdown.

In a news release, Mullin stated, “As a business owner, you are always the last to get paid. In the case of a government shutdown, I will operate no different. All of my team members will be deemed essential and continue working in order to respond to the numerous calls we are receiving from our constituents.”

Congressman Mullin represents the 2nd District of Oklahoma, most of the eastern part of the state.

He has offices in Claremore, Durant, McAlester, Muskogee and Washington.
