Rep.Rogers Named One of the Most Corrupt Members of Congress

A ban on earmarks won’t stop the “Prince of Pork” from bringing home the bacon. Rep. Harold “Hal” Rogers (R-KY) has abused his congressional power to funnel hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to a shadowy network of organizations operated by political cronies and family members within his congressional district. It’s no wonder he’s been named by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) as one of the Most Corrupt Members of Congress. “Rep. Rogers claims to embrace the new Republican mantra of fiscal restraint, but his ...

Rogers makes announcement of federal aviation grant

Congressman Hal Rogers (R) of Kentucky told those gathered at a reception at University of Pikeville’s Booth Auditorium that a $750,000 federal aviation grant has been approved for take off. The formal announcement made by the congressman follows efforts made by him along with a partnership between the Southeast Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and Pikeville, Pike County Regional Airport and the City of Pikeville. “We worked with them on getting a small airports grant out of Washington which has been successful and we have tried to help them to locate a carrier that would want to fly ...

Hal Rogers Cuts the Pork

The longtime “Prince of Pork” has now miraculously become the “Count of Cuts.” Rep. Harold “Hal” Rogers, R-Ky., was once known for his zest for pork-barrel spending as a senior Republican on the House Appropriations Committee, which holds the purse strings of government spending. But Rogers desperately wanted to assume the chair of the committee after the Republicans won control of the House last November, which meant he would have to embrace the Tea Party gospel of cutting spending and eschewing special interest “earmarks.” In other words, he ...

Rogers Votes for REVIEW Act
On Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05) voted in support of common sense federal legislation to rein in high-cost regulations through the "Require Evaluation before Implementing Executive Wishlists Act of 2016" (H.R. 3438) or the "REVIEW Act." The REVIEW Act aims to stop waste and abuse by requiring federal agencies to postpone the effective date of any new billion-dollar rule, if the rule is challenged in court within 60 days. "We've seen the direct impact of erroneous federal rules in the coalfields of Eastern Kentucky," said Congressman Rogers. "Over the last eight years, the Obama Administration has imposed more than 20 billion-dollar rules, many of which require costly compliance deadlines despite the fact that they are being challenged in court. For example, earlier this year, the Supreme Court blocked the EPA's new regulations for carbon emissions at coal-fired power plants. However, the coal-fired power plants had already moved forward with plans to omit coal, in
Rogers Applauds House Passage of the Water Resources Development Act
U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05) applauds the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the Water Resources Development Act of 2016 (H.R. 5303). It provides strong congressional oversight of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and authorizes activities over a two year cycle for responsible flood protection, water resources development and other critical programs. The legislation includes Rogers' amendment to approve "floating cabins" on lakes operated by the Corps in the Cumberland River basin, like Lake Cumberland in southern Kentucky.  Rogers offered the following remarks about his amendment on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives encouraging support from his colleagues. "Thank you, Mr. Speaker and thank you, Mr. Chairman, for the opportunity to offer this amendment.  This small legislative clarification will go a long way to promote tourism and economic opportunity on Corps lakes. "Beautiful Lake Cumberland in my congressional district is the larg
Rogers Votes to Take Synthetic Drugs Off the Market
Today, U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05) voted for the Synthetic Drug Control Act (H.R. 3537) to criminalize the sales of highly-potent, chemically-produced drugs like "bath salts" and "flakka." The bill targets synthetic drugs that are widely available online and at retail shops. Many synthetic or "designer" drugs are labeled 'not for human consumption' to avoid regulation by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). "Synthetic drugs are being sold legally across the country, despite warnings that they can be more addictive and deadly than illicit drugs, like heroin. With this bill, we aim to take synthetic drugs off the market and hold drug dealers accountable," said Congressman Rogers, a co-sponsor of the bill. "More than 1,200 people died from drug overdose deaths in Kentucky last year, making every life-saving effort more critical with each passing day."  The Synthetic Drug Control Act would classify more synthetic drug compounds, identified by the Drug Enforceme

It also includes the full year Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations bill, $1.1 billion in emergency funding to fight and prevent the spread of the Zika virus, $500 million in grants to help states recover from recent floods, and $37 million to help fight the nation’s opioid epidemic. Chairman Rogers made the following statement on the legislation: “This is a necessary bill that will keep the government open and operating, provide resources for our service members and veterans, and address critical needs across our country related to the Zika virus, the opioid epidemic, and the recent, disastrous floods. “I have said many time
