LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Both of Arkansas' U.S. senators voted in favor of legislation to avert sharp increases in federal taxes and steep cuts in government spending but the state's House delegation was split.

Republican Senator John Boozman and Democratic Senator Mark Pryor both voted "yes" on the measure this weekend.

The House delegation was evenly divided, with Democratic Rep. Mike Ross voting "yes," along with Republican Rep. Steve Womack. Republican Reps. Rick Crawford and Tim Griffin voted against the measure.
