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 Tapped to Lead Subcommittee on State & Foreign Operations
U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) will serve as Chairman of the U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations and Related Agencies for the 115th Congress. Rogers was tapped as the congressional international ambassador after making historic strides as Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee over the last six years.  "I count it a great honor to help lead our national security, international diplomacy and work hand-in-hand with our nation's allies to fight terrorism around the world," said Chairman Rogers. "With such intense turmoil overseas, it is vitally important that the United States maintain unwavering global leadership, while working tirelessly to protect our diplomats and promote democracy across the globe." The Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations is tasked with protecting American embassies and consulates, supporting security for U.S. allies, prioritizing life-saving health and human aid around the world, and addressing health th
Rogers Kicks off 115th Congress with Pro-Coal, Pro-Jobs Legislation
U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) co-sponsored his first resolution of the 115th Congress to stop the overreaching Stream Buffer Zone Rule, one of the Obama Administration's last attempts to shut down more coal mining operations in Central Appalachia and around the country. The joint resolution allows each chamber of Congress to take a simple vote to overturn the controversial rule that was published on December 20th.   "Let this be our first congressional declaration that the Obama Administration's war on coal is over," said Congressman Rogers. "Since 2008, we've lost more than 11,000 coal mining jobs in Eastern Kentucky alone, devastating our families and coal communities. It's time to rebuild and advance commonsense legislation that reverses these terrible trends." The Office of Surface Mining and Reclamation Enforcement (OSMRE) failed to comply with a Congressional directive to work closely with coal-producing states and share analytical data before finalizing

The New Congress Hits the Ground Running
U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) applauded the work of the new Congress in its first week in operation, meeting with Vice President-Elect Mike Pence, addressing veterans issues, reining in costly regulations and taking steps to protect black lung benefits.  Republican Members of the House met with Vice President-Elect Mike Pence earlier this week to discuss plans to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare. Pence reminded legislators that premiums are increasing by an average of 25% this year, while some states experienced increases as high as 116%.  As the new Congress works to overhaul the disastrous and unaffordable healthcare act, Rogers continues to advocate for a piecemeal approach to protect portions like the Byrd Amendment, making it easier for coal miners to obtain black lung benefits. In fact, on Thursday, Rogers cosponsored a resolution, H. Res. 26, to protect black lung benefits and widows' benefits in the law. Curre
