Andy Barr is Getting Results
- As Chairman of the subcommittee with jurisdiction over the Treasury Department’s implementation of sanctions, Andy introduced a bill that imposes the toughest economic sanctions ever directed at North Korea. The legislation, which passed the House 415-2, was named in honor of Otto Warmbier, an American student who died after being returned to the United States in a coma following his kidnapping, detention and torture for more than a year by the Kim regime.
- Andy voted for vital funding to rebuild our nation’s military, increase readiness, bolster our Naval forces, increase end strength of our Armed Forces and provide the largest pay raise for our troops in a decade.
- Andy has led efforts to recapitalize and secure 16 new C-130 J model aircraft for the Air National Guard and is currently working with leadership of the U.S. Air Force and National Guard Bureau to secure a squadron of new J model aircraft for Kentucky’s Air National Guard.
- As a member of the National Guard Caucus, Andy was awarded the 2017 Charles Dick Medal of Merit from the National Guard Association of the United States for distinguished service in providing “exceptionally strong support” to the National Guard.
