TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The all-Republican Kansas congressional delegation was divided over legislation raising the federal debt ceiling and ending the partial shutdown of the federal government.
Sen. Jerry Moran and 2nd District congresswoman Lynn Jenkins voted for the measure.
Voting against the package were Sen. Pat Roberts, 1st District congressman Tim Huelskamp, 3rd District congressman Kevin Yoder and 4th District congressman Mike Pompeo.
The four of them said the budget deal failed to address what they described as the nation's out-of-control spending.
Moran and Jenkins said they voted yes to end the government shutdown and avoid having the U.S. default on its debt should the federal government hit its borrowing limit.
Jenkins is a member of the House GOP leadership team, and Speaker John Boehner voted for the package.
