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 ...

Opponent attacks Latta on environmental record

Fifth Congressional District candidate Angela Zimmann is blasting incumbent U.S. Rep. Bob Latta (R., Bowling Green) for his record on the environment. Ms. Zimmann of Springfield Township is running for the seat as a Democrat. At a news conference Wednesday morning, she called attention to a recent Los Angeles Times editorial that named Mr. Latta one of the top 10 "most powerful and outspoken opponents of clean air, clean water, conservation, and climate action." The editorial highlighted an amendment offered by Mr. Latta to the TRAIN Act, which environmental groups say is an attack on ...

Latta, McNerney Launch Grid Innovation Caucus
This morning, Congressmen Bob Latta (R-OH) and Jerry McNerney (D-CA) relaunched the bipartisan Grid Innovation Caucus for the 115th Congress. The caucus will seek to discuss policy related to innovative Smart Grid technology that can reduce outages and improve the security and reliability of our nation’s electric grid.   “Cutting-edge Smart Grid technology will mean more reliable, efficient, and secure energy delivered to households and businesses across the country,” said Latta. “Implementing this technology, and updating our aging grid, also means less outages that are detrimental to public safety and our economy. I’m excited to join Congressman McNerney in launching the Grid Innovation Caucus to better explore this new innovation, educate our colleagues on its potential, and discuss it’s role in meeting our future energy needs.” “Our nation’s energy infrastructure is becoming outdated, but the electricity sector and its operations are undergoing dynamic
Latta Statement on Nomination of Neil Gorsuch for the U.S. Supreme Court
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) released the following statement after President Trump announced his nomination of Neil Gorsuch for the U.S. Supreme Court. “I applaud President Trump's nomination of Neil Gorsuch to serve on the nation’s highest court. Judge Gorsuch has a long established judicial history of supporting religious freedom, protecting the Second Amendment, and limiting government overreach. As a judge, Gorsuch is a firm believer that the courts should interpret the law and not make it. I strongly urge the Senate to work quickly to approve Judge Gorsuch as our nation’s next Supreme Court Justice.” ###
Ozone Bill Reintroduced in 115th Congress
U.S. Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) were joined today by Representatives Pete Olson (R-Texas), Bill Flores (R-Texas) and Bob Latta (R-Ohio) in reintroducing the Ozone Standards Implementation Act in the 115th Congress. This legislation, which was introduced in both the House and Senate, would update how the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) addresses ozone requirements in the Clean Air Act.   Currently, the EPA must review national ambient air quality standards every five years. This has resulted in new ozone standards being issued before previous standards are implemented, leaving states faced with the prospect of simultaneously implementing two ozone standards. The Ozone Standards Implementation Act would elongate the time between each review from five years to 10 years, making it easier and more cost-effective for states to comply.   “Providing more time and flexibility for states to implement the EPA’s
Latta Votes to Roll Back Regulation That Infringes on Second Amendment Rights
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in approving legislation Thursday to roll back an Obama Administration regulation that infringes on Second Amendment rights. The regulation, which was finalized by the Social Security Administration in December, labels anyone who has a representative payee as “mentally defective” and prohibits them from passing a background check under the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). There is no evidence that disability beneficiaries that have representative payees are prone to violence. The regulation was panned by both Second Amendment and disability rights groups who said the regulation was discriminatory. The bill, H.J. Res. 40, uses the Congressional Review Act to eliminate the ‘midnight rule.’     “Like many midnight rules promulgated at the end of the Obama Administration, this one should never have seen the light of day,” said Latta. “In fact, this regulation is flat-out discrim
