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 to Empower States to Withhold Funding from Abortion Providers
WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) voted for a resolution to overturn the Obama Administration's late attempt to funnel funding to Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider. The U.S. House of Representatives passed the resolution, H.J. Res. 43, disapproving of the Obama Administration's rule that prevents states from eliminating abortion providers from Title X grant distribution.  "Planned Parenthood performs a third of a million abortions every year and receives half a billion taxpayer dollars annually. H.J. Res 43 is a pro-life step in the right direction, empowering each state to prevent taxpayer dollars from being used for this purpose," said Congressman Rogers. "Instead, this legislation protects women's health by allowing states to redirect those dollars to facilities that preserve the gift of life and health." A GAO report in 2015 indicated Planned Parenthood received $201 million over a three year period through the Title
Congressman Rogers' Statement on President Trump's Executive Action
U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s executive order to review the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule: “I applaud President Trump for his determination to roll back this extreme power grab by the Obama administration. The WOTUS rule would give unelected bureaucrats the authority to hand out costly fines for any unapproved dirt-moving activity — from farming to private land construction. This formal review is the first step to cut through the red tape currently restricting our nation’s miners, farmers, small business owners and hard working Americans.”   Last year, Rogers voted for S.J. Res. 22, a joint resolution disapproving of a rule redefining Waters of the United States under the Clean Water Act, in an effort to block the rule and prohibit any new rules with similar intent. In 2015, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a nationwide stay against the rule.  ###
Rogers Applauds New Jobs in Wayne County
U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) applauds the approval of a competitive federal contract to Patriot Industries, Inc. in Monticello, Kentucky. The company earned a military contract to manufacture dry suits for the U.S. Coast Guard, which will create 15 new jobs.  "We have the best workforce in the country and this new contract is proof of the quality manufacturing that allows companies in our region, like Patriot Industries, to compete for federal work," said Congressman Rogers. "Patriot Industries has been a trusted partner in southern Kentucky for nearly two decades, and I applaud their diligent efforts to provide jobs in our region." Patriot Industries received HUBZone certification from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) in 2009 and has won multiple contracts for its expertise in cutting and sewing military products.  "Patriot Industries is a great steward of Wayne County, providing quality jobs and supporting the community year after year," said Mike
Bi-partisan Congressional Caucus Re-Launched to Combat Prescription Drug Abuse
Every 20 minutes, someone in America dies from an opioid overdose, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In an effort to combat the drug abuse epidemic and continue life-saving efforts across the country, Congressman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) and Congressman Stephen F. Lynch (D-Mass.) re-launched the bi-partisan Congressional Caucus on Prescription Drug Abuse. The Caucus was first initiated in 2010 to raise awareness on the federal level about drug abuse and to design effective policy solutions for treatment, prevention, education, law enforcement and research. "Collaborative efforts combining education, treatment, drug courts and promoting partnerships at the local, state and federal level have helped communities in Massachusetts tackle opioid abuse. However, more work is needed to halt the devastating cycle of prescription drug abuse and help families in the 8th District and across the country who have loved ones struggling with addiction. I am proud
