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 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:
Barr Introduces Federal Reserve Reform Legislation
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) introduced H.R. 4270, the Monetary Policy Transparency and Accountability Act of 2017.  The legislation requires the Federal Reserve to adopt an easy to understand policy strategy, and clearly explain how its actual policies compare to a set of well-known benchmarks.  In doing so, households, businesses and investors will have greater confidence and certainty in their financial and investment decisions. “This legislation will result in greater transparency and accountability at the Federal Reserve,” said Congressman Barr.  “A more predictable, strategy based monetary policy will give investors, entrepreneurs, and families more certainty, which will result in greater economic opportunity for all Americans.  And importantly, this bill preserves the independence of the Fed to set monetary policy, while ensuring that its strategy is clearly communicated to Congress and the American people.” Congressman Barr serves as the Chairman of the House Fin
Barr Statement on Nomination of Jerome Powell as Chairman of the Federal Reserve
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) issued the following statement after President Donald Trump nominated Jerome “Jay” Powell to serve as the next Chairman of the Federal Reserve: “In Jay Powell, President Trump has selected an experienced and well-respected nominee to serve as the next Chairman of the Federal Reserve.  As the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade, which has jurisdiction over the Federal Reserve, I look forward to working with Mr. Powell and encouraging him and other members of the Federal Open Market Committee to institute a more transparent, and strategy-based monetary policy so that households and businesses can make investment and financial decisions with greater confidence and certainty.  I am also encouraged that Mr. Powell has signaled a willingness to reform and streamline overly-burdensome financial regulations.” “I would also like to thank the current Chair of the Federal Reserve Janet Yellen for her service to our nation.  While
