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 ...

Financial Services Committee Passes Barr’s Bipartisan North Korea Sanctions Bill
Congressman Andy Barr’s (KY-06) legislation, H.R. 3898, the Impeding North Korea’s Access to Finance Act of 2017, was passed unanimously today by the House Financial Services Committee.  During yesterday’s debate of the legislation, which would impose the most far-reaching sanctions ever directed at Pyongyang, both Republican and Democratic members of the committee praised the bill. Click here to watch Congressman Barr’s opening statement followed by the full committee debate on H.R. 3898. Key statements from the committee debate: Committee on Financial Services Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX): “I believe when this bill becomes law, this clearly builds upon existing U.N. and U.S. sanctions and will make it more difficult for North Korea to develop their nuclear weapons program.  So it is an important bill, I appreciate the bipartisan work done on it, and I urge all members to support it.” Committee on Financial Services Ranking Member Maxine Waters (D-CA): “The first
Barr Introduces North Korea Sanctions Legislation
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) introduced H.R. 3898, the Impeding North Korea’s Access to Finance Act of 2017. “For more than two decades, foreign aid and half-hearted sanctions have been deployed in vain to thwart the Kim regime’s ambitions, a strategy of ‘strategic patience’ that has proven highly ineffective,” said Congressman Barr.  “That is why I have introduced this legislation that would, if enacted, impose the most far-reaching financial sanctions ever aimed at North Korea.  In addition to bringing about an economic reckoning for Pyongyang, these sanctions will strengthen the American negotiating position by sending a strong signal to North Korea and its enablers that the status quo is unacceptable.” H.R. 3898 would punish foreign financial institutions for dealing with virtually anyone facilitating North Korea-related business, an incentive for traders, middlemen, and others to give up activities that ultimately strengthen the Kim regime.  In addition, the
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 Statement on the President's Comprehensive Iran Strategy
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) issued the following statement in response to the President’s announced new Comprehensive Iran Strategy and actions taken to counter Iranian threats: “The Obama Administration’s nuclear deal with Iran was a dangerous and historic mistake. The deal provided the mullahs in Tehran with tens of billions of dollars in up-front sanctions relief in exchange for Iran’s promise to temporarily pause its enrichment program.  Unfortunately, the agreement contained fatally deficient verification protocols, and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) now concedes it has no capacity to verify that Tehran is not engaged in ‘activities which could contribute to the development of a nuclear explosive device.’  That’s because under the terms of the agreement, international inspectors are barred from accessing Iran’s military sites, where illicit nuclear activities are most likely to be taking place.” “But the most serious concern is not that I
