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 Discusses Opioid Epidemic with Local Law Enforcement
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) discussed the opioid epidemic this morning in a pair of conference calls with local law enforcement. The discussions, held with County Sheriffs and Police Chiefs from Ohio’s Fifth Congressional District, touched on the challenges that law enforcement faces in addressing this pressing crisis. Last year in Ohio, 4,050 deaths were due to drug overdoses — a 33% increase over 2015. Law enforcement officials pointed out in today’s call that they are also seeing an increase in prevalence of other illicit drugs like methamphetamine and cocaine. Latta will share the information he received on the call with the White House Opioid Commission.   “When I met with the White House Opioid Commission, it was clear that they know many of the solutions will come from our local communities,” said Latta. “Today’s discussions — held on National Overdose Awareness Day — were particularly informative to me because this problem is evolving so rap
Latta Anti-Terrorism Amendment Added to House Funding Bill
An anti-terrorism amendment proposed by Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) has been added to a House appropriations bill, H.R. 3354, the Make America Secure and Prosperous Appropriations Act, that will be voted on this week. The provision allows the Department of Homeland Security to use existing funds to partner with rental car agencies for the purpose of strengthening background checks to guard against potential terrorist attacks. In recent European terror attacks, perpetrators have rented large trucks and vans and driven them into crowded areas, killing innocent people. A number of the suspects had previous known ties to terrorism by European authorities. Countries in Europe are already implementing background checks on those renting large vehicles.   “We shouldn’t wait for terror groups to use their most recent modus operandi in the United States before reacting,” said Latta. “By being proactive, we can give rental agencies the tools they need to ensure that lar
Landmark Latta-authored Self-Driving Car Legislation Approved by House
Today, the U.S. House of Representatives approved landmark self-driving car legislation authored by Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green), the SELF DRIVE Act, with unanimous support. The legislation, H.R. 3388, is the first bill passed at the federal level to address self-driving technology. The SELF DRIVE Act aims to improve consumer safety by reducing traffic-related fatalities and injuries, clarify the federal and state roles, and stimulate job growth and economic opportunities. Latta serves as Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection Subcommittee, which oversees self-driving cars, and he has toured facilities in both Ohio and Michigan that are testing this technology.   “The passage of the SELF DRIVE Act is an important milestone in the development, testing, and deployment of self-driving cars,” said Latta. “Autonomous vehicle technology has the possibility to reduce deaths on our nation’s roadways by the tens of thousands, and a
Latta Introduces Pro-Life Amendment to Appropriations Legislation
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) introduced an amendment to a U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Bill that would protect the life of unborn children diagnosed with Down syndrome. The amendment would prohibit federal funding to international organizations that promote or perform abortions for the sole reason of a Down syndrome diagnosis. A recent CBS News article highlighted that nearly 100% of Down syndrome diagnoses of unborn children in Iceland leads to them being aborted.   While the amendment was not ruled in order to H.R. 3354, the Make America Secure and Prosperous Appropriations Act, due to House procedural rules, Congressman Latta intends to introduce related legislation that would prohibit domestic abortion providers to conduct an abortion solely based on a Down syndrome diagnosis.   “Children and adults with Down syndrome are valued members of our society,” said Latta. “Many live independently, work, and attend school.
