Andy Barr has served as the U.S. Representative for Kentucky's Sixth Congressional District since January, 2013. He is a Member of the Committee on Financial Services, and is the Chairman of the Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee. Barr is focused on strengthening Kentucky's signature bourbon, equine, coal, agriculture and manufacturing industries, and serves as co-chair of the bipartisan Congressional Horse Caucus. He is fighting for policies that will save the country from bankruptcy, increase government accountability, and that would restore the balance of powers as intended by the founders of our nation.

In an ongoing effort to be an accessible representative to citizens of the Sixth District, Congressman Barr initiated several constituent coalitions focused on finding solutions that will help Kentucky's Veterans, signature industries, and to find solutions to the growing drug epidemic.

Congressman Barr continues to implement his Accessibility Initiative, holding public events in each county he represents -- meeting directly with constituents, maintaining monthly staff office hours in every county, and publishing actively on social media and in his eNewsletter.

Congressman Barr graduated from Lexington's Henry Clay High School in 1992, earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Government and Philosophy from the University of Virginia in 1996, and received his law degree from the University of Kentucky in 2001.

Congressman Barr is a 2007 graduate of Leadership Lexington, a member of the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church and has served on the Board of Directors of the Friends of the Isaac Murphy Memorial Art Garden and Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky.

He and his wife, Carol, are the proud parents of two daughters, Eleanor and Mary Clay.
