Public schools can now help fill food banks


A change in Ohio law has opened the door for public schools to donate excess unused food to local food banks and pantries. Prior to this law change, public schools weren't offered the same protections as restaurants and caterers that donate to food banks under the Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act. The food donation measure, which became law in 1996, protected donors to food banks from all liability -- criminal and civil -- yet did not provide public schools that same protection, according to U.S. Rep. Steve LaTourette said. "It's rather ridiculous that restaurants and caterers were ...


LaTourette joins lawmakers calling on deficit committee ...


Bainbridge Township Republican Rep. Steve LaTourette doesn't think anything -- including tax increases -- should be off the table as a congressional "supercommittee" approaches this month's deadline to come up with a plan to cut the federal budget deficit. LaTourette's willingness to consider a tax increase -- expressed in a letter to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction that he signed with a bipartisan group of 100 legislators -- puts him at odds with influential conservative activist Grover Norquist. Long before he signed the deficit reduction letter, LaTourette, along with ...

The Truth-o-Meter says: Half-True | U.S. Rep. Steve LaTourette says $1 billion in infrastructure investment translates to 42,000 jobs Congressman Steve LaTourette is a self-described huge proponent of infrastructure spending, because, he says, it generates good-paying jobs and spurs economic development.

For each $1 billion in infrastructure investment, 42,000 jobs are created." That figure has been used  by Republicans and Democrats alike. With the White House and Congress engaged in a standoff over how best to revive the American economy and create jobs, ... >> More
Steve LaTourette - Former Rep. Steve LaTourette says spending during Bush and Obama years led to the government’s fiscal problems
The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True | Former Rep. Steve LaTourette says spending during Bush and Obama years led to the government’s fiscal problems Since retiring from Congress at the beginning of this year because he was frustrated by partisan gridlock, former Bainbridge Township GOP Rep.

Steve LaTourette - Ballast water no longer key cause of invasive species in Great Lakes, Steve LaTourette says
The Truth-o-Meter says: True | Ballast water no longer key cause of invasive species in Great Lakes, Steve LaTourette says For the past several months, GOP Rep. Steve LaTourette has been weighted down in a congressional dispute over ballast water on the Great Lakes. Invasive species, like zebra mussels, round gobies and bloody red shrimp, have hitchhiked in ballast water that ships take on for stability in one body of water, and discharge elsewhere. The stowaways crowd out native species, cause structural damage, and spread disease. Everyone wants to crack down on invasive species, but LaTourette says the state of New York has gone too far by imposing new ballast water regulations on ... >> More

The Truth-o-Meter says: Half-True | Rep. Steve LaTourette says the government is growing while the economy is shrinking Ohio Senate Bill 5 would restrict collective bargaining for state workers and severely limit it for local government employees. Rep. Steven LaTourette says won't endorse the bill as written, although he doesn’t have a say in it since it’s a bill in the state legislature. "Being a lawyer, I've never seen the legal system more efficient than sitting down and negotiating over wages and benefits," the former Lake County prosecutor said in an interview March 4 with The News-Herald. Even so, he said, "I get the fact that we're going ... >> More
