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 ...

Congressman Andy Barr (R-KY) today announced the introduction of H.R. 5789, the Camp Nelson Heritage Park Study Act.  The legislation authorizes the Department of the Interior to study the feasibility of incorporating the historic site in Jessamine County into the National Park Service.  The study would be paid for with existing funding to the Department of the Interior and would not require additional appropriations. The legislation is cosponsored by Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (D-OH). “In Kentucky we are very proud of our heritage and history,” said Congressman Barr.  “The legislation we announced today is an important first step toward incorporating the Camp Nelson Heritage Park into the National Park Service.  A National Park designation would bring more visitors and greater appreciation for this significant site in our nation’s history.  I am thankful for the contributions of Jessamine County Judge Executive David West, the Jessamine County Fiscal Court, and Congre
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:
