TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma's five U.S.Representatives all voted against a bill to require combat troops be withdrawn from Iraq by next spring. The resolution passed the House on a vote of 223-to-201.

Democrat Dan Boren and Republicans John Sullivan, Tom Cole, Frank Lucas and Mary Fallin each voted against it.

Boren says he's frustrated with progress in the war but says a report on the progress isn't due until September.

The resolution calls for troop withdrawal to begin within 120 days and for the withdrawal to be complete by April 1, 2008.
