WASHINGTON - Following the final-hour agreement over the looming fiscal cliff, Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor released the following statement on Tuesday:
"I'm pleased Senate Democrats and Republicans were able to prevent our country from going over the fiscal cliff. Last night the Senate passed a package on a bipartisan basis to prevent tax increases on middle-class Americans, create a permanent AMT patch, fix the estate tax to give Arkansas small businesses and family farms the certainty they need, and provide critical tax credits for hard-working families. That being said, I know some may not agree with all the details of this plan. But that's the art of compromise and consensus building, and I hope we see more of it as Congress works to improve our economy."
