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 ...

Ms. Zimmann of Springfield Township is running for the seat as a Democrat.

Latta Signs onto Legislation Expanding Childhood Cancer Research
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) has cosponsored legislation that would expand opportunities for childhood cancer research and enhance quality of life for childhood cancer survivors. H.R. 820, the Childhood Cancer Survivorship, Treatment, Access, and Research (STAR) Act authorizes the National Cancer Institute to expand existing efforts to collect biospecimens from clinical trials for use in research. The bill also authorizes grants to state cancer registries to better identify and track cancer in children and young adults. Additionally, the bill establishes a pilot program to test innovative models of care for childhood cancer survivors.   “There are very few people that haven’t been touched by a cancer diagnosis — either for themselves or a loved one,” said Latta. “When it’s a child that is afflicted, it’s even more heartbreaking. The Childhood Cancer STAR Act expands existing research and improves our ability to identify and track childhood cancer cases,
Latta Helps Pass Stronger Sanctions on North Korea
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in passing H.R. 1644, the Korean Interdiction and Modernization of Sanctions Act, by a near unanimous vote Thursday afternoon. The legislation significantly strengthens existing sanctions against the North Korean regime by restricting access to money and materials to fund the rogue country’s weapons programs. The bill also mandates sanctions against any foreign person buying certain metals or minerals from North Korea, and expands the ability to impose sanctions. The bill also prohibits goods that are produced through North Korean forced labor from entering the United States. North Korea has launched 49 missiles since 2015 including a missile test last Saturday.   “North Korea continues to flaunt international norms as their government advances their capabilities to fire nuclear weapons at the U.S. mainland,” said Latta. “It’s critical that the U.S. and our allies maintain sustained pressure on this rogue re
Latta Votes to Repeal Obamacare, Strengthen Health Care for American Families
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) released the following statement after voting to pass H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), which repeals Obamacare and replaces it with patient-centered heath care.   “It’s very evident that Obamacare is failing the American people, and its problems continue to grow. Just yesterday, more than 70,000 Iowans found out they might not have a single insurer to purchase insurance from on their exchanges next year. Last year, more than 5.5 million people decided to pay an IRS penalty instead of purchasing insurance they can’t afford. The promises of Obamacare have been thoroughly broken, and the problems it has foisted on hardworking families can’t be ignored. Constituents in my district have told me about skyrocketing premiums, difficultly using their insurance, and the lack of choices they face thanks to Obamacare. Out of the 14 counties I represent, four are facing a reality where there won’t be a single insurer available
Bipartisan Legislation Providing Greater Flexibility to Manage Water Infrastructure Introduced in U.S. House
Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH) has introduced legislation to provide states and municipalities with greater flexibility to manage their wastewater and stormwater systems and improve their infrastructure long-term. The bill, H.R. 2355, the Water Infrastructure Flexibility Act, mirrors companion Senate legislation introduced by Senator Deb Fischer (R-NE). Joining Latta in introducing the bill is Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-IL), Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (D-OH), Congressman David Joyce (R-OH), Congresswoman Grace Napolitano (D-CA), and Congressman Lloyd Smucker (R-PA).   “This legislation will provide additional tools and flexibility for communities to comply with mandated wastewater infrastructure improvement projects” said Congressman Latta. “With more than $21 billion worth of water, wastewater, and stormwater infrastructure needs in Ohio, it’s critical to provide communities with the ability to meet their obligations in a more cost-effective manner.
