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 Enhance National Security
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) voted in favor of H.R. 3219, the Make America Secure Appropriations Act of 2018.  The legislation contains four of the twelve appropriations bills which must be passed by Congress before the end of the fiscal year on October 1, 2017. “The Make America Secure Appropriations Act makes good on our promises to rebuild our military, secure our borders, and to take care of our troops,” said Congressman Barr.  “I am particularly pleased that the final bill included my amendment to expand the availability of evidence-based equine treatment for veterans who have suffered trauma while serving our country.  The legislation also funds the purchase of six new C-130 Model-J aircraft, something I have long fought for, and which could help replace aging aircraft for Kentucky’s Air National Guard.” H.R. 3219 boosts base funding for the Department of Defense by $68.1 billion, a 13 percent increase over FY17 levels.  The bill fully funds a 2.4% pay raise for
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 Votes to Strengthen Public Safety
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) today voted in favor of two bills to enhance public safety and to combat sanctuary cities.  “While we have a lot of work to do to fix our broken immigration system, the two commonsense bills we passed today are a good start,” said Congressman Barr.  “We should all be able to agree that dangerous criminals should not be given a safe haven anywhere in our country and that our immigration policies should not encourage deported criminals to come back into the United States.  The No Sanctuary for Criminals Act and Kate’s Law will help keep Americans safe by discouraging sanctuary cities and by deterring deported criminals from returning.” H.R. 3003, the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act prohibits state or local governments from implementing laws, policies, or guidance that prohibit law enforcement agencies from restricting compliance with immigration laws or from cooperating with federal immigration officials in the enforcement of immigration laws.
Barr Votes to Strengthen Sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) today voted in favor for H.R. 3364, the Russia, Iran and North Korea Sanctions Act, legislation that will increase U.S. economic and political pressure on these three American adversaries.  Congressman Barr serves as the Chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade which has jurisdiction over the Treasury Department’s implementation of these sanctions. “The federal government’s first and primary responsibility is the safety and security of the American people,” said Congressman Barr.  “These three nations have continually challenged American interests and it is imperative, now more than ever, that we are proactive in our response.  The Russia, Iran and North Korea Sanctions Act will put increased pressure on these belligerent actors who threaten their neighbors and the United States while participating in cyber crimes, illicit missile and nuclear programs, and crimes against humanity.” H.R. 3364 will place n
