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."

Latta Statement on the 40th Anniversary of the Hyde Amendment
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) issued the following statement for the 40th anniversary of the Hyde Amendment. The Hyde Amendment is a provision included in government funding bills that restricts taxpayer funding from being used for abortion.     “The introduction of the Hyde Amendment to protect life was a revolutionary idea that still shares the support of the American people,” said Latta. “With a large majority believing that taxpayer money should not be used to carry out abortions, it’s important that we keep in place this amendment that has saved more than two million lives. With Hyde under attack more than ever before, it’s important that we continue to stand up for the unborn and keep the Hyde Amendment as a staple in all government funding bills.”        ###
Latta Votes to Provide Relief to Individuals Harmed by Collapsing Obamacare CO-OPs
Tuesday evening, Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives to pass legislation providing relief to individuals that have lost coverage due to failed Obamacare Consumer Operated and Oriented Plans (CO-OPs). The bill, H.R. 954, the CO-OP Consumer Protection Act, exempts consumers from having to pay a penalty if the co-op that they were enrolled in collapses. Under Obamacare, the penalty in 2016 for an individual not having insurance is $695 or 2.5% of adjusted gross income, whichever is greater.   “In yet another example of the failure of this law, 17 separate co-ops have collapsed since Obamacare was implemented,” said Latta. “In a faulty design that only government could dream up, individuals that lost their health care through a co-op failure are being punished twice — first by losing their coverage, and then by being forced to pay a penalty for not being enrolled in a plan. I voted to pass H.R. 954 to protect m
Latta Backs Bill Providing Relief for Small Businesses, Schools, and Nonprofits
Wednesday evening, Congressman Bob Latta joined his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives to pass H.R. 6094, the Regulatory Relief for Small Businesses, Schools, and Nonprofits Act, legislation that would require a six-month delay in the implementation of the new Department of Labor (DOL) overtime rule. The rule was finalized earlier this year without Congressional approval despite concerns raised by small businesses, schools, and charitable organizations.     “I’ve heard from a number of schools and nonprofits in the Fifth District that simply don’t know how they will be able to effectively pursue their missions when this rule goes into effect,” said Latta. “Of course, small businesses will also be at a significant disadvantage and employees are going to face less scheduling flexibility and opportunities for upward mobility at work. Passing this legislation will give these organizations needed relief from a rule that was poorly thought out and finalized
Latta Applauds Passage of Legislation to Honor Korean War Veterans
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) applauded the recent passage of legislation, H.R. 1475, the Korean War Veterans Memorial Wall of Remembrance Act, to create a wall of remembrance at the Korean War Veterans Memorial on the National Mall. The legislation passed the U.S. House of Representatives last week and was signed by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan yesterday. It now heads to the President’s desk to be signed into law. Latta is a cosponsor of the legislation.     “More than 36,000 Americans lost their lives in the conflict which is often called the ‘Forgotten War’,” said Latta. “Those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country should never be forgotten. Expanding the memorial in Washington to include recognition of these individuals will finally ensure their names — and their service — will be permanently represented and remembered.” ###
