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 Votes to Provide Relief to Community Banks, Revitalize Main Street
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in passing landmark financial reform that would revitalize main street, provide relief for small and community banks, and roll back the most burdensome aspects of the Dodd-Frank regulatory bill. H.R. 10, the Financial CHOICE Act, ends taxpayer bailouts of Wall Street banks and cuts the deficit by $24 billion. More than 1,900 banks closed their doors between the implementation of Dodd-Frank and 2014 as regulations were greatly expanded.   “The effect of Dodd-Frank on small, community banks is an example of government taking a problem and making it much worse,” said Latta. “Instead of protecting taxpayers from Wall Street bailouts, small banks on Main Street were flooded with new rules and regulations that have made it difficult to operate. In the most egregious cases, small banks in my district would end up with more regulators in their bank than employees. Our country is losing the equivalent of a bank a day si
Latta Statement on Anthem’s Withdrawal From the Ohio Obamacare Exchanges
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) released the following statement after the announcement by Anthem to pull out of Ohio's Obamacare exchanges in 2018. In Ohio’s Fifth Congressional District, this could potentially leave three counties with zero insurers. Five other counties in the district could be left with only one insurer in their individual marketplaces as well. “The failure of Obamacare continues to harm Ohio families,” said Latta. “With this announcement, many constituents in the district I represent will face the prospect of having no available options to purchase insurance, while others will be forced to choose from only one option. The current system is unsustainable. I voted to repeal Obamacare and replace it with patient-centered health care that would give more flexibility to states, lower costs, and increase choice for patients in order to provide desperately needed relief for Ohioans. Today’s announcement is a wake-up call – Obamacare is broken and w
Latta Helps Send VA Accountability Bill to the President’s Desk
Today, Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) joined his colleagues in passing S. 1094, the bipartisan Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act by a vote of 368-55. The legislation will now head to the President’s desk to be signed into law. S. 1094 reforms the agency and allows the VA Secretary to remove, demote, or suspend any VA employee for poor performance or misconduct. The legislation also contains a number of important whistleblower protections.   “Our nation’s veterans, who have made countless sacrifices for our country, deserve to have access to timely, quality care,” said Latta. “If a VA employee is not helping with the mission, either through misconduct or poor performance, than appropriate punitive action should be taken. Currently, there are far too many hoops to jump through to fire or punish misbehaving employees, and it’s veterans that are suffering the consequences. I look forward to the President signing
Latta Statement on Shooting at Congressional Baseball Practice
Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) released the following statement after today’s shooting in Alexandria, Virginia.   “Marcia and I send our thoughts and prayers to Steve and the other victims of this morning’s shooting in Virginia. We are praying that everyone makes a full recovery from their injuries. From the early reports, the quick actions of the U.S. Capitol Police and Alexandria Police at the scene kept this situation from being much, much worse. As a Member of Congress, I’m thankful for the men and women of the Capitol Police that protect Representatives, Senators, staff, and the public every single day.”
