Okla. lawmakers split on $1.1 trillion budget bill

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma's five congressmen were divided on a $1.1 trillion spending bill for operating the federal government until just before next fall's election.

U.S. Reps. Tom Cole and Frank Lucas voted for the measure that overwhelmingly passed the U.S. House Wednesday and provides money for virtually every federal agency. Reps. Jim Bridenstine, Markwayne Mullin and James Lankford voted against the bill.

All five are Republicans.

The 1,582-page bill passed the House Wednesday on a 359-67 vote. The measure eases many but not all of the automatic spending cuts that took effect last year.

It is expected to go before the Senate for final approval later this week.
