WASHINGTON, D.C -

The gridlock in Washington has prompted Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn to add his name to a new proposal that would keep lawmakers from getting paid if they don't pass a federal budget.

The No Budget, No Pay Act is endorsed by the organization, No Labels, and has bipartisan support from 94 lawmakers, so far.

Outgoing Oklahoma Congressmen John Sullivan and Dan Boren also co-sponsored the legislation.

Supporters call it "common-sense legislation," aimed at getting Congress members to work across the aisle.
