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:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Andy Barr (R-KY-06) and U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced today that Chrysalis House, Inc. (CHI) in Lexington, Kentucky has received a $2.62 million competitive federal grant which will help CHI provide expanded comprehensive, high-quality residential substance abuse treatment for low-income, pregnant or postpartum women and their children. Additionally, this funding will allow CHI to provide outpatient services for children, such as counseling regarding substance abuse prevention, and targeted outreach in Kentucky to thousands of women and extended family members. Congressman Barr and Senator McConnell contacted the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on behalf of CHI in support of the grant. The funding, which will provide $524,000 each year for five years, was awarded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, an agency within HHS. Representative Barr said, “Drug abuse in Kentucky
Congressman Barr Announces $1 Million Federal Grant for Lextran
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) today announced that Lextran will receive a $1 million grant through the Federal Transit Authority’s Low or No Emission Vehicle Program.  The funds will be used to purchase battery-powered buses and on-route charging stations in coordination with the University of Kentucky’s ‘Blue Goes Green’ program which seeks a zero-emissions campus for transportation.  Congressman Barr wrote a letter to the Federal Transit Administration in support of the grant application. “The awarding of this federal grant will help Lextran and the University of Kentucky to reduce emissions in and around campus which will benefit the community as a whole,” said Congressman Barr.  “I am proud that my office was able to assist in this effort and I appreciate all of the hard work by Lextran and the University of Kentucky to secure these funds that will be used to better our community.” “Lextran is excited to expand our electric bus program with this grant award
Congressman Barr Fights for Fiscal Responsibility
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) today voted against legislation that will raise the debt limit, hike government spending, and reauthorize the national flood insurance program without any reforms through mid-December.  “Earlier this week, I voted in favor of a $7.85 billion targeted package to support relief and recovery efforts in response to Hurricane Harvey,” said Congressman Barr.  “That bill, which was an appropriate emergency response to the disaster in Texas and Louisiana, passed nearly unanimously in the House and should have been quickly approved by the Senate and sent to the President without political games.” “Unfortunately, that non-controversial legislation was modified to include non-emergency spending, increase the debt limit, and reauthorize the bankrupt national flood insurance program without reforms.” “It is unfair to young and future generations of Americans to raise the debt ceiling without enacting any reforms that would address the nation's spend
