Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) addressed the Swanton Rotary Club Thursday and provided an update on what he is working on and what has been accomplished this Congress.
Latta highlighted opioid legislation that continues to sit in the U.S. Senate after passing the U.S. House of Representatives this summer. H.R. 6 contains dozens of bills that would address the crisis including the INFO Act, which was authored by Latta, to help communities better access the information and resources they need to combat the opioid epidemic.
In addition, Latta provided updates on the enactment of recent legislation.
“There is much we’ve accomplished recently including a pay raise for our troops, tax reform, and landmark career and tech education legislation,” said Latta. “However, there is still much to achieve before the end of this Congress including the need to find solutions for the opioid epidemic which has hit Ohio hard. Thank you to the Swanton Rotary for allowing me to discuss these issues today and share my efforts to get things done on behalf of the constituents I represent.”
