Latta receives conservative excellence award
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bob Latta, R-Bowling Green, received the American Conservative Union Award
for Conservative Excellence for his voting record in 2018. Latta’s score reflects his votes in favor of
Right to Try, protecting children who survive abortion, and repealing the burdensome Waters of the U.S.
rule.
“Northwest and West Central Ohioans sent me to Washington to be their voice in our representative
government, and my voting record reflects that,” Latta said. “I voted to protect our most vulnerable,
limit government, give families peace of mind, and protect farmers and landowners from regulatory
overreach coming out of Washington. I’m honored to be recognized by the ACU for the important work we
did in the last Congress.”
