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, McNerney: Use Resilient Technologies When Rebuilding Disaster-Stricken Areas
In a letter to the U.S. House Committee on Appropriations, Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH) and Congressman Jerry McNerney (D-CA) encouraged the use of resilient technologies when rebuilding regions affected by recent natural disasters. The letter, which was addressed to Chairman Rodney Freylinghuysen (R-NJ) and Ranking Member Nita Lowey (D-NY), asks that language be included in disaster supplemental appropriations bills to provide that funding, to the extent practicable, utilize future technologies to prevent future outages and enhance resiliency of the electric grid. Currently, there is no requirement to rebuild energy infrastructure beyond pre-storm status despite the fact that many of these areas face the potential of natural disasters in the future.   The letter says, “The electric power grid is the backbone of the U.S. economy and society, and a reliable grid is fundamental to our day-to-day functionality and to our national security. Although much has been done to moderniz
Latta to FDA: Use “Track and Trace” to Prevent Opioids From Falling Into the Wrong Hands
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) has asked the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to look at ways that the Safeguarding America’s Pharmaceuticals Act — also known as “Track and Trace” — could be used to prevent opioids from being diverted from the supply chain and falling into the wrong hands. The Safeguarding America’s Pharmaceuticals Act was authored by Latta and was signed into law in 2013 as part of the Drug Quality and Security Act. Under the law, FDA is directed to set up a system to follow prescription drugs through the supply chain in order to protect Americans against counterfeit and otherwise illegitimate drugs. In a letter, Latta asks FDA whether they have the necessary tools to identify diverted prescription opioids, whether they recommend Congress provide them additional authority to track and trace diverted drugs, what potential changes could be made to protect consumers, and whether the use of blockchain technology to monitor prescription drugs has bee

Joining the Health Subcommittee will not change his positions on the other subcommittees. “I’m honored to join the Health Subcommittee where I’ll have an opportunity to add to the discussion about improving our health care system and empowering patients,” said Latta. “With Ohio being ground zero for the opioid
Latta Votes to Take Next Step on Tax Reform
This evening, Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in passing a motion to go to a Conference Committee between the House and Senate to reconcile differences between the tax bills passed by each respective body. Latta recently voted to pass the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act to modernize the nation’s tax code and provide needed tax relief for middle class families. Under the House bill, a family of four making $59,000 annually would keep nearly $1,200 more of their money each year. The legislation would create more than 33,000 full time jobs in Ohio according to one estimate. “We’re a step closer to pushing tax reform across the finish line and providing relief to middle-class families and small businesses,” said Latta. “We want to pass this bill before the end of the year so that Ohioans will see more money starting with their first paycheck in January. Going to conference will help us hammer out the differences that remain. While there are still details
