LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Congressman Todd Rokita said his offices are handling the shutdown by rotating the workers who are being sent home without pay.
The rotation changes every day.
Rokita also said that while some lawmakers are choosing to give up their pay during the shutdown, he is not.
"The problem I have withholding my pay or anything like that, that sends the message that we're not doing our job or and that I don't deserve my pay. I'm doing my job, I'm doing exactly what Hoosiers want me to do. That is fight against out of control growth and spending of the federal government," said Rokita.
The trees is up and the decorations are set. Visitors are getting a special look at the Haan Mansion as Christmas approaches.
Several generations gathered Saturday to remember a day that will live in infamy. The day marked 72 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Downtown Lafayette transformed into a scene right out of Victorian England Saturday for Dickens of a Christmas.
