Republican Andy Barr will be sworn in as the newest congressman from Kentucky on Thursday afternoon in Washington.

Barr, a Lexington attorney, won election in November over Democratic U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler in a bitter race to represent the 6th Congressional District.

Barr will serve on the House Committee on Financial Services, which he said he considers a top tier assignment.

He said he will be able to use the committee assignment to work on solving Kentucky's job crisis by pushing to lift regulations that are preventing community banks from making needed loans to individuals and small businesses.
