Sen. Morse (Ind-Ore) said he will fight efforts to give Congress a pay boost but will move to boost expense allowances. “I think the present $15,000 a year is adequate,” Morse said in an interview, “I get by all right on it but must use part of it for office expenses.” Members of Congress now get $12,500 a year and an expense allowance of $2,500 for which they need not give an accounting.
