Andy Barr gets approval for solar panels


"All drilled up then?" comes the question with a wry smile at every farming meeting. I haven't heard anyone answer, "Yes". In only my second season of direct drilling I'm not sure of its merits at this time of year, but I can confirm a nice layer of surface straw keeps the moisture in - no doubt useful in a drought. Under the surface the old worm and root holes are doing a good job of drainage apart from a patch of heavy land which is home to some small and waterlogged oilseed rape plants. We haven't even been able to get an ATV on some of it. On a brighter note permission has been ...


Andy Barr ousts Ben Chandler in Kentucky's 6th ...


... Congressional District The second time around proved a winner Tuesday for Republican Andy Barr in wresting Central Kentucky's 6th Congressional District seat from Democratic incumbent Ben Chandler. Barr, a Lexington attorney, lost to Chandler in 2010 by 648 votes but defeated him Tuesday by more than 11,000 votes, thanks in large part to a huge sentiment in the 19-county district against Democratic President Barack Obama. Barr was successful in linking Chandler to Obama, especially on Chandler's support in 2009 for the Obama-backed "cap and trade" bill that angered coal officials ...


Barr on abortion: Where does he stand?


In debate, he wouldn't detail his stand You've got to wonder what it was Republican Andy Barr wanted to talk about in those 19 debates he proposed in his race to unseat Rep. Ben Chandler (D-Versailles). Because Monday when the two finally met, with independent Randolph Vance, in a debate on Kentucky Educational Television moderated by Bill Goodman, Barr refused to clarify or elaborate his own position on abortion, an issue he's put front and center in this race. Barr, you'll remember, famously used a photo of his own baby girl, accompanied by the question "Who'll be on her side?" on a ...

Barr Reintroduces Portfolio Lending and Mortgage Access Act
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) today reintroduced H.R. 2226, the Portfolio Lending and Mortgage Access Act.  The bill promotes affordable home financing and discourages the practices that led to the 2008 financial crisis and the resulting taxpayer bailouts of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and too-big-to-fail financial institutions. “By expanding the definition of a ‘qualified mortgage’ to include mortgages that are held on portfolio, this legislation recognizes the fact that when a bank or credit union retains 100 percent of the downside risk of default on a loan, it has a strong incentive to ensure sound underwriting,” said Congressman Barr.  “This in turn, will expand access to mortgage credit and the American dream of homeownership without producing the risky originate to distribute practices that caused the financial crisis and led to taxpayer bailouts.  We passed this bill with strong bipartisan support in the last Congress, and I am hopeful with a new administration we wi
Barr Votes to Fund Kentucky Priorities
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) today issued the following statement after voting for the Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2017, which funds the government through September 30, 2017:  “I am disappointed that the funding bill put before Congress today does not do more to balance our budget, much less address our growing national debt.  I am equally frustrated that this bill fails to shift resources to the extent needed to rebuild our military to deter and respond to growing threats.  However, this legislation does deliver on many of our promises to the American people including to make a vital down payment on our national security, give our troops a well-deserved pay raise, substantially improve border security, and to fight the growing drug epidemic that has been devastating to Kentucky.” “This bill also ensures that retired mine workers and their widows do not lose their health benefits because of the devastating impact of the Obama Administration’s War on C
Rep. Barr Votes for the American Health Care Act
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) today voted in favor of H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act, legislation that will repeal most of Obamacare’s mandates, taxes, and regulations while making important reforms that will lower costs and expand access to care. “Today is a great day for freedom in America,” said Congressman Barr.  “After seven years of broken promises, lost coverage, skyrocketing premiums, thousands of pages of regulations, tax penalties, collapsing co-ops, fewer jobs, and state exchanges which are now in a death spiral of fewer choices and rising costs – the House of Representatives has taken a critical step in the process that will finally repeal and replace Obamacare.  And we have done so in a way that provides multiple layers of protections for people with pre-existing conditions.” “Since I first ran for Congress, I promised the people of the Sixth District that I would vote to repeal this broken law and replace it with reforms that will actually lower
Barr Votes to Reform SNAP Program
WASHINGTON, D.C.  – Congressman Andy Barr released the following statement after voting for H.R. 3102, the Nutrition Reform and Work Opportunity Act of 2013, which passed the House by a vote of 217-210: “Today, I voted to restore accountability and much-needed fiscal responsibility to an important federal program that has grown to unsustainable levels.  These commonsense reforms to our food stamp program will achieve nearly $40 billion in savings, while increasing funding for food banks.  The bill will provide a full $725 billion in food assistance to families and children in need over the next ten years.  This legislation is the most compassionate policy because it encourages people who are capable of work to move from dependency to self-sufficiency.”   As passed by the House of Representatives, H.R. 3102 will implement several important reforms to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).   H.R. 3102 would protect the solvency of this important program by:
