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 Hosts Broadcasting Forum with FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly in Perrysburg
BOWLING GREEN, OH – Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) hosted a broadcaster forum in Perrysburg today with Federal Communications Commissioner Michael O'Rielly. The event, held at Owens State Community College, touched on a number of issues including the importance of broadcasting in local communities, incentive auction repacking, and cross-ownership rules.   “Hearing from Commissioner O’Rielly on the most pressing issues facing broadcasters provided an insightful look into the thinking at the Federal Communications Commission,” said Latta. “The conversation was lively and hearing from the region’s broadcasters will provide important context for me as Congress discusses its role on a number of these topics as well. I want to thank the Commissioner for taking the time to come to this event and share his perspective.” Congressman Latta and Commissioner O’Rielly addressing the broadcasters Michael O’Rielly was nominated f
Latta Speaks About Susceptibility of IoT Devices to Cyber Attacks
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) spoke at a House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee hearing today about the susceptibility of Internet of Things (IoT) devices to hacking in light of the recent Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack that caused large internet outages. The subcommittee hearing, entitled “Understanding the Role of Connected Devices in Recent Cyber Attacks,” aimed to address weaknesses in cyber infrastructure that allowed hackers to commandeer connected security cameras and other devices to launch an attack on October 21. The attack shut down access to numerous websites over several hours. Latta serves as Co-Chair of the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Internet of Things Working Group and has heard from representatives in a number of different industries about potential cybersecurity concerns with the Internet of Things.   “To fully realize the benefits available from the Internet of Things, we must address the reality that bad actors —whether f
Latta Votes to Approve Legislation Improving Rural Call Quality
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives in passing legislation this evening to improve call quality in rural communities. The bill, H.R. 2566, the Improving Rural Call Quality and Reliability Act, requires intermediate providers to comply with service quality standards set by the FCC. Rural call quality is often poor due to inconsistency with ‘least cost routers’ that are not subject to the minimum FCC standards. The bill also establishes a public registry which increases transparency and accountability for least cost routers.   “Rural communities are often subjected to telephone service that is of poor quality with dropped calls, false ringing, and white noise making it difficult for users,” said Latta. “These problems are caused by intermediate providers, not local phone companies, and often make it more troublesome for those living in rural areas to conduct business. Even worse, inconsistent call reliability
Latta Votes to Reform Midnight Rulemaking
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives to pass H.R. 5982, the Midnight Rules Relief Act, to make commonsense changes to regulatory rulemaking oversight at the end of Presidential terms. Often, outgoing administrations will rush implementation of multiple regulations to achieve political goals before their term comes to an end. These regulations can be poorly thought out, overtly political, and lack transparency. Under the Congressional Review Act (CRA), Congress has the authority to disapprove new rules, but only one at a time. Since numerous rules are often passed at the end of a term, the Midnight Rules Relief Act amends the CRA to allow Congress to consider the disapproval of multiple rules with one resolution.   “Just because a Presidential term is coming to a close, doesn’t mean that Congress should waive it’s regulatory oversight responsibilities” said Latta. “Unfortunately, the current Congressional Rev
