Congress gets paid, but who's keeping their paycheck?

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- While more than 800,000 federal workers, including some congressional staffers, are being furloughed during the government shutdown, members of Congress are still getting paid, as required by law.

 
But some members of the House and Senate--the very bodies that failed to prevent the shutdown--are giving away their salary in solidarity.
 
CNN reached out to all 533 current members of Congress about their paycheck plans.
 
As of Thursday at 12:15 p.m., the tally showed 31 senators are donating to charity or the Treasury Department, while four are not accepting a paycheck and two are undecided.
 
Two senators, Tom Coburn, R-Oklahoma and Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut, told CNN they plan to keep their salary.
 
On CNN's Crossfire, Coburn said that he plans to keep his salary and "spend it and tithe it and give to it charities and do the things that I've always done."
 
In the House, 45 representatives say they're donating to charity or the Treasury, while 54 are not accepting a paycheck and one is undecided.
 
Four House members, however, say they're keeping their salary-- Rep. Danny Davis, D-Illinois; Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Indiana; Rep. William 'Lacy' Clay, Jr., D-Missouri; Rep. Howard Coble, R-North Carolina.
