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 Named Chairman of Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) has been named the Chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade for the 115th Congress.  Among other issues, the subcommittee is responsible for oversight of the Federal Reserve System, as well as domestic and international monetary policy. “I am honored and humbled to have the confidence of Chairman Hensarling and my colleagues to serve as Chairman of Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee,” said Congressman Barr.  “I look forward to continuing the important work of this subcommittee including vigorous oversight of the Federal Reserve to encourage a predictable and stable monetary policy that will provide certainty and economic growth for all Americans.” “Andy Barr has quickly emerged as a thoughtful, hard-working, and effective leader on the Financial Services Committee,” said Chairman Jeb Hensarling.  “I look forward to working with Congressman Barr in his new role as Chairman of the Monetary Policy and
House Takes First Steps Toward Repealing Obamacare
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) today voted in favor of a budget resolution which sets the stage for Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. The same budget reconciliation process was used in 2016 to get repeal legislation to President Obama, who vetoed the bill. “Obamacare did not fix our broken health care system, it made it worse,” said Congressman Barr.  “On behalf of the tens of thousands of Kentuckians who lost private insurance plans they liked, who have seen their premiums and deductibles skyrocket, and who have been forced into low-quality government plans they do not want, I am proud to vote for this legislation which lays the groundwork for repeal and replacement of this failed law.” “The American people rightfully expect better, and a unified Republican government will move quickly to provide relief from Obamacare’s failures and to expand access to quality, affordable health care without growing government.” This week, Congressma
Barr Votes to Improve Military Readiness
Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) today voted in favor of the Conference report to H.R. 4909, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2017.  The NDAA is the primary way Congress meets its most important constitutional obligation to provide for the common defense.  The legislation stops the recent drawdown of the Armed Forces and makes investments to improve military readiness.  NDAA authorizes funds to support military operations abroad, includes a 2.1 percent pay increase for our troops, strengthens military health care services, and prohibits the closure of the terrorist detention center at Guantanamo Bay. “Passage of this National Defense Authorization Act marks a turning point by improving military readiness and by making the investments we need to keep the American people safe and to fully support our troops at home and abroad,” said Congressman Barr.  “This legislation also gives our troops a well-deserved pay increase and, importantly, blocks Presid
