U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., talks to Arkansas Business about how the the fiscal cliff would affect the military and farms in Arkansas.
Boozman made the comments as part of a wide-ranging interview with Arkansas Business.
The sequestration component of the 2011 Budget Control Act mandates $1.2 trillion in budget reductions during 10 years. Those largely across-the-board spending cuts - including cuts in the defense budget that don't sit well with Republicans like Boozman - would begin in 2013.
