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.

IoT Working Group Releases Report on Activities in the 114th Congress
The House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Internet of Things (IoT) Working Group, co-chaired by Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH) and Congressman Peter Welch (D-VT), has released a report detailing findings they gathered during the 114th Congress. The white paper summarizes the activities of the working group. The IoT Working Group met with technology experts, key stakeholders, and leaders in a number of industries to discuss the benefits and challenges of implementing IoT and the role of the Federal government in advancing the new technology. The report can be viewed here. “Through discussions with technology experts and leaders in a number of different sectors, it’s clear that the Internet of Things is changing how businesses gather and use information to be more efficient, effective, and safe,” said Latta. “The IoT Working Group’s activities in the 114th Congress will help develop the foundation for a thoughtful public policy approach to IoT going forward, including the ro
Latta Votes to Rebuke UN’s Anti-Israel Resolution
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleague in passing a bipartisan resolution, H.Res. 11, that condemns the United Nation Security Council's recent resolution regarding Israel’s building of settlements. That resolution, which passed the U.N. Security Council by a 14-0 vote, was made possible due to the Obama Administration refusal to veto. H.Res. 11 passed the House by a 342-80 vote. “Standing with our closest ally in the Middle East, Israel, has been a longstanding, bipartisan tradition,” said Latta. “The Security Council’s resolution was another tired attempt to undermine Israel at the U.N., and I was profoundly disappointed that the President and his Administration stood by idly as this occurred. Today’s vote by the House shows the strong support that exists for the Israeli people and their government. It’s time to turn the page on the last eight years, and I welcome a new Administration that has made it clear that they value rebuilding this critic
Latta Votes to Give Congress Ability to Stop Costly Regulations, Roll Back Midnight Rulemaking
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives today in passing legislation to require Congressional approval on major regulations. H.R. 26, the Regulations from the Executive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS) Act, requires any executive branch rule or regulation that has greater than a $100 million economic impact to be reviewed and voted on by Congress. In addition, Latta also voted to pass H.R. 21, the Midnight Rule Relief Act, which will provide more tools to Congress to roll back last minute regulations implemented by the Obama Administration. In many cases, these ‘Midnight Rules’ are not fully weighed and considered. While the Congressional Review Act gives Congress the ability to vote to remove these regulations within 60 days, a large number of regulations would be difficult to consider in that timeframe. The Midnight Rule Relief Act allows Congress to consider eliminating multiple rules at once. “Ohio’s hardworking
