    BARR asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. BARR. Mr. Speaker, Kentucky is famous for horses, bourbon, college basketball, and hospitality. And now we can add to that list the fact that the Commonwealth is home to Toyota's largest manufacturing plant in the world.

    With production of the 2016 Lexus ES fully up and running, the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky plant now ranks as the company's largest by production volume. That is right; Toyota now has its largest manufacturing plant in Georgetown, Kentucky.

    The addition of the Lexus production line brought with it 750 new jobs to my district. This continued investment in Kentucky is a testament to the skill, perseverance, and dedication of the American workforce.

    Mr. Speaker, we must continue to foster the manufacturing renaissance in America by enacting comprehensive tax reform; reining in burdensome regulations; fixing Dodd-Frank and other financial rules that impede access to capital; ending the EPA's destructive war on abundant, affordable energy; and promoting free trade so that American exporters are competitive around the world. When we are able to manufacture in America, companies like Toyota can fulfill the promise of good-paying jobs and secure the American Dream.
