Ohio Rep. Bob Latta Visits Constituents at the Fair

A little more than a dozen seniors were at the Van Wert County Fair Thursday to hear from 5th District Rep. Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green). The first thing Latta addressed was the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s decision to end their proposal to force farmers to get Commercial Driver's Licenses. The proposal was something Latta staunchly opposed. Latta, who comes from a farming family, said Washington D.C. was crazy to believe that they could regulate farmers as long haul-truckers. “The idea that people in Washington think that they could say to farmers that they have ...

Latta Helps Pass Anti-Trafficking Bills
Today, Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his House colleagues in helping pass three bipartisan anti-trafficking bills that would seek to curb a problem plaguing communities across the country. H.R. 2200, the Fredrick Douglass Trafficking Victims Prevention and Protection Act, reauthorizes a fund that prevents human trafficking, protects victims, and prosecutes traffickers. H.R. 2664, the Enhancing Detection of Human Trafficking Act, establishes a training program for Department of Labor employees to improve their ability to recognize trafficking and respond more effectively when cases are detected. H.R. 2480, the Empowering Law Enforcement to Fight Sex Trafficking Demand Act, expands eligibility for Department of Justice grants to apply to law enforcement agencies instituting programs to combat trafficking. “Sex trafficking is a crime that is prevalent in far too many communities in Ohio and across America,” said Latta. “To stop this problem, policies are need
Latta Votes to Enhance National Defense, Increase Troop Pay
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in passing the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), legislation that improves military readiness, increases pay for service members, and makes important reforms at the Pentagon. The NDAA also increases funding for the purchase of essential military aircraft, vehicles, and weaponry. The annual defense authorization bill passed with bipartisan support by a vote of 344 to 81. “The vote today is a strong statement that the rebuilding of our nation’s military has begun,” said Latta. “After six years of military drawdowns under the previous administration, this year’s NDAA authorizes increasing the size of our military, ensuring that our troops have the resources they need to keep our nation safe, and addressing the gathering threats around the globe. In addition, the bill provides funding to purchase badly needed aircraft, armored vehicles, ships, and munitions. At the same time, important reforms are made to o

Today, the U.S. House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Environment approved provisions authored by Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) as part of a larger drinking water infrastructure bill, the Drinking Water System Improvement Act. The included provisions originated from legislation that Latta authored, the Drinking Water Affordability Act, and would help public water systems improve infrastructure and ensure safer drinking water.   Provisions authored by Latta that were included in the bill would: •   Provide increased flexibility for the repayment of federal loans for states and local communities that use the funds to finance clean drinking water infrastructure projects •   Cut burdensome red tape by looking at ways to remove duplicative reporting and paperwork requirements when state standards are equally stringent — or more so — than federal standards •   Help disadvantaged communities better finance thei
