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 Votes for Legislation to Reauthorize Children’s Health Insurance; Community Health Centers
Today, Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) voted for legislation, the Championing Healthy Kids Act, to reauthorize and fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and community health centers. H.R. 3922, which was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives, is a five year extension of the CHIP, which provides health insurance for more than 8.4 million lower-income children. Without the passage of a CHIP extension, states will begin to run out of funding for the program in December. The legislation also includes a two year extension of Federally Qualified Health Centers, which serve over 24 million patients. The bill is fully offset. “It’s essential that Congress act to reauthorize a program that millions of children count on before funding runs out in December,” said Latta. “The House took decisive action today by passing legislation to extend the CHIP program for five years. At the same time, the bill supports community health centers, which many of the
E&C Committee Holds Legislative Hearing on Latta-authored Draft to Modernize Energy Star Program
A discussion draft authored by Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) to modernize the Energy Star program was one of the main focuses of an Energy and Commerce (E&C) subcommittee hearing this morning. The E&C Subcommittee on Energy hearing examined the effects of that draft legislation, the Energy Star Reform Act, along with one other energy bill. The Energy Star Reform Act incorporates previous legislation by Latta that would protect consumers and strengthen the program, and the draft would also lead to a more open and transparent process for setting standards. Latta said at the hearing, “The Energy Star program has been a win-win for consumers and manufacturers over the past twenty-five years. This program has proven to be a successful tool in advancing the development and use of energy efficient technologies. It has also promoted economic expansion and job growth for participating manufacturers across the nation, including many in my home state of Ohio.” He conti
Latta Introduces the INFO Act to Combat Opioid Crisis
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) has introduced the Indexing Narcotics, Fentanyl, and Opioids (INFO) Act to improve and make available important data on the opioid crisis and the effect of federal efforts to combat the epidemic. The INFO Act would establish a public electronic database that would compile information on federal efforts to stop the opioid crisis. The information would be used to help federal, state, and local officials develop the most effective strategies to prevent addiction, treat those that are addicted, and keep prescription drugs from falling into the wrong hands. The INFO Act would also track federal funding being used to combat the epidemic. “Communities in Ohio and around the nation continue to suffer from the rise of opioid abuse and addiction,” said Latta. “While the magnitude of this crisis is evident in the number of opioid-related deaths, we’re still lacking basic information on the effectiveness of federal programs and other efforts. In
