Among the other five Arkansas members of Congress, Republican House member John Boozman reported earning between $19,708 and $61,600 in outside income.  He reported assets between $698,010 and $1.55 million, including a profit-sharing plan valued from a half-million to a million dollars.

Senator Blanche Lincoln, a Democrat, reported between $586,016 and $1.52 million in assets and between $26,813 and $67,103 in outside income.
