At least two New York congressional representatives in the Hudson Valley say they voted in favor of the “No Budget, No Pay” act, which passed the House Wednesday by a vote of 285-144. The legislation ensures the U.S. avoids defaulting on its debt, and would withhold congressional pay until Congress passes a budget.

Republican New York Congressman Chris Gibson faced off against his Democratic opponent Julian Schreibman last night in the first of three scheduled debates in the race for the state’s newly formed 19th Congressional District.
