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 Legislation to Modernize Nuclear Technology Approved by House
Bipartisan legislation authored by Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) to modernize the nation’s nuclear technology was approved by the U.S House of Representatives Monday evening. The bill, H.R. 4979, the Advanced Nuclear Technology Development Act, requires the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to establish a framework for issuing licenses for advanced nuclear reactor technology and requires the NRC to submit a schedule for the implementation of the framework by 2019. Approximately 50 companies have invested over one billion dollars in nuclear power technology, but the lack of a regulatory framework to license this technology threatens continued investment and implementation. “Nuclear power must play a significant role in American energy policy for our nation to become truly energy secure, and the future of the nuclear industry needs to start now,” said Latta. “It is imperative that we develop the right regulatory framework so advanced nuclear technologies can be dev
Latta Votes to Pass House Internet of Things Resolution
Monday evening, Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives in passing H.Res. 847, a resolution expressing a sense of the House about a national strategy for the Internet of Things (IoT) to promote economic growth and consumer empowerment. Latta is an original cosponsor of the resolution and is Co-Chair of the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Internet of Things Working Group.   “The Internet of Things has the potential to dramatically improve our economy and people's way of life,” said Latta. “With such revolutionary technology, there needs to be discussions about what a forward-thinking approach toward IoT looks like. The resolution passed today shows that Congress recognizes the power that IoT holds and acknowledges the need to review policy obstacles that could stifle innovation. I’ll continue to participate in these discussions through the IoT working group as we work to develop a strategy that fully embraces th
Latta Honored with ‘Guardian of Small Business' Award
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) was honored as a ‘Guardian of Small Business’ today by the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB), a leading national small business association. Latta was presented with the award due to his strong small business record in the 114th Congress. “Small businesses are economic engines, creating seven out of every ten new jobs,” said Latta. “To get our economy fully back on track, we need to support our job creators by instituting policies that cut bureaucratic red tape, provide more regulatory certainty, and simplify our convoluted tax code. I’m honored to receive this award from the NFIB recognizing my steadfast support for small businesses in Ohio and around the country, and I’ll continue to back legislation that creates an economic environment where they can thrive.” Congressman Latta with President and CEO of NFIB Juanita Duggan
Latta Backs Bill to Repeal Middle-Class Obamacare Tax
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives to pass H.R. 3590, the Halt Tax Increases on the Middle Class and Seniors Act on Tuesday. The bill rolls back a middle-class tax increase imposed by Obamacare and stops a similar tax increase on seniors poised to take effect in 2017. Before the passage of Obamacare, taxpayers were allowed to deduct a major medical expense if it exceeded 7.5% of their annual income. However, the 2010 law changed this provision by increasing the income threshold to 10%, making it more difficult to deduct significant medical expenses. While this provision has been in effect for Americans under the age of 65 since 2014, taxpayers of all ages will face the higher threshold starting next year. “Collapsing exchanges, higher premiums, and less access to health care – President Obama’s flagship legislation is looking worse and worse by the day,” said Latta. “To the detriment of countless Americans, Ob
