Idaho Senators Mike Crapo and Jim Risch issued this joint statement after voting to support compromise "fiscal cliff" legislation that passed the U.S. Senate by an 89 to 8 vote.

"The compromise that we supported protects 99-percent of all Idahoans from a tax increase and also protects the vast majority of our farm families from a permanent tax increase. This is a victory for working Idahoans, but we must now be very aggressive in finding appropriate spending reductions."
