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.

Thompson: Older Americans Act Signed Into Law
Washington, DC – Congressman Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5), a senior member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, provided the following comments upon news that President Barack Obama has signed a reauthorization of the Older Americans Act (OAA) into law.  The law, passed with overwhelming bipartisan support in the House and Senate is vital for home and community-based services to continue for older adults across the nation. “For more than 50 years, the Older Americans Act has helped senior populations remain independent and in their own homes,” Thompson said.  “Having served a career in non-profit healthcare, I witnessed firsthand the importance of this law to not only our seniors, but also to their families and caregivers.” Programs supported by the OAA include national network of supports, including nutrition and preventive health services, job training, elder abuse prevention, caregiver assistance, among many others.  The law also helps seniors obtain
Thompson’s Cooperative Management of Mineral Rights Act Subject of House Committee Hearing
Washington, DC – Legislation authored by U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) that will protect the rights of private mineral owners in the Allegheny National Forest (ANF) was the subject of a hearing Tuesday by the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources.  The Cooperative Management of Mineral Rights Act of 2015, H.R. 3881, seeks to reinforce federal law and consistent rulings of federal courts, which made the determination in 2009 that the U.S. Forest Service cannot create new rules related to the leasing and permitting of privately-held mineral rights in the ANF. “For nearly a century, landowners have joined with the local and federal government to ensure the continued access to private mineral rights and the continued health of our forest.  Despite that partnership, extreme environmental groups attempted to shut down energy production. Federal courts have ruled with the local communities and in favor of private property rights. The Cooperative
Thompson Supports Legislation to Prevent Regulation of Internet Rates
Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) voted in favor of the No Rate Regulation of Internet Access Act (H.R. 2666), which forbids the Federal Communications Commission from regulating the retail rates of internet service providers (ISPs).  The legislation passed in the House by a vote of 241 to 173. “Internet rate regulation by the FCC would hurt the service offered by providers, preventing them from offering plans designed for their particular communities or customers,” Thompson said.  “The Obama Administration and the FCC have promised not to regulate internet rates – this legislation holds them to their words.” The legislation leaves in place FCC authority to protect consumers from fraudulent actions and from breach of contract from internet carriers. The measure now goes to the Senate for consideration.
