Lexington, KY –  U.S. Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) released the following statement in response to flooding in parts of the Sixth Congressional District and throughout Kentucky:  

“My prayers are with residents in the Sixth District and throughout Kentucky battling damaging floods.  I am working with my colleagues in the Kentucky Congressional Delegation to advocate for the approval of Kentucky’s federal disaster declaration request.  This disaster declaration would trigger federal resources for impacted areas and support in the recovery.  In the meantime, my office will continue working with local leaders and be available for Kentuckians who need help.  I also want to thank all first responders currently providing assistance to Kentuckians on the frontlines.”
