With the new year, Glenn Thompson could see larger district


Pennsylvania will be seeing changes in its congressional districts this year, leaving some Democratic politicians to worry that the move will favor the GOP. The state had to cut one district this year, after data from the 2010 Census showed a decrease in population in Pennsylvania, which will lessen the representation in Washington, Tor Michaels, chief of staff for Scott Conklin, D-Centre, said. This usually happens when a state’s population decrease was more than the national average. The third congressional district saw a loss in the redistricting process, according to a press ...

House Passes Working Families Flexibility Act
Bill offers private sector workers same benefit as government employees on how to use their comp time   WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson today supported a bill that will give private sector employees more flexibility in the workplace and more control of how to use their comp time. The American workforce has changed dramatically over the years, and the needs of workers in the 21st century have changed as well. Yet workers are held back by outdated federal workforce rules from the 1930s. That’s why the House today passed the Working Families Flexibility Act of 2017 (H.R. 1180). This pro-worker, pro-family proposal gives private-sector workers a choice to accrue paid time off in lieu of cash wages for overtime hours worked — a choice that has long been afforded to government employees. “Hard-working Americans add indisputable value to our country’s changing economy, and it is only fair that we modernize overtime compensation and provide employees with o
Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day
U.S. Representative Glenn 'GT' Thompson has three sons who are grown, but on Thursday he had a special guest for Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day. Seth Parish, a first-grader from Maryland joined Congressman Thompson for a day in the nation's capital. Seth's Dad was in the U.S. Army and died in 2009 about a month before Seth was born. The nonprofit Tuesday's Children connected Congressman Thompson with Seth. Tuesday's Children uses its experience and expertise to help our military families work through their own losses. Seth, who is 7, attended committee meetings with Congressman Thompson, went to votes on the House floor, and they even had grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch at the Capitol.
Thompson Supports the American Health Care Act
Vote to repeal and replace Obamacare passes House WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson issued the following statement after the House voted to pass the American Health Care Act: “Today, I voted in favor of repealing and replacing Obamacare and to advance a bill that aims to create a health care system that works for all Americans. Obamacare has been failing with one in three counties in the country now only having access to one insurance provider, out of control premiums, and limited choices for consumers. “The American Health Care Act aims to bring lower costs, increase choice, and provide assurances to those with pre-existing conditions that they will be able to maintain coverage. During this process, I worked with House leaders to address concerns I initially had over costs for aging Americans and our most vulnerable populations. Leadership acted in good faith and continued making important changes to the bill. With these changes and today’s vote I am opt
