WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Andy Barr (R-KY) released a statement following his vote today in support of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act:

“Today, I voted in support of the most aggressive fiscal stimulus package in American history. This legislation will support the work of the doctors, healthcare workers and first responders in Kentucky and across America as they take on COVID-19 on the frontlines. It is also an opportunity to unleash the creative energies of America’s innovators- to support our researchers, scientists and pharmaceutical companies to find therapies to fight and ultimately defeat this virus.

“This legislation provides small businesses, workers and families the desperately needed cash to pay their bills and to face the economic challenges this virus is posing to Kentucky and to our country. I am confident this legislation will equip Kentucky and the nation with critical economic relief that will help our communities and engineer the great American comeback that is forthcoming.”
