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 ...

Thompson: We Must Safeguard the Right of Americans Living with Disabilities to Secure Their Future Financial Stability
Washington, DC – This week, the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee unanimously approved H.R. 670, the Special Needs Trust Fairness Act, which was introduced by U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5).   The legislation removes arbitrary legal barriers that prevent individuals with disabilities from independently creating Special Needs Trusts. “Mr. Thompson is to be commended for the masterful way he has lined up bipartisan support for this important law to benefit persons with disabilities,” said Amos Goodall, of the State College based law firm Goodall & Yuchak, P.C. and public policy advocate for the National Association of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA).  “It is an example of his concern for persons who are less fortunate that has been the cornerstone of his activities throughout his career.” Under current law,  disabled individuals are required to have a legal guardian or the courts create a special needs trust on their behalf, regardless of whether or not the

Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson’s (PA-5) “Barnyard Discussion” on agriculture policy, which took place this week during Penn State University’s Ag Progress Days.  Thompson is a senior member of the House Agriculture Committee and the chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation and Forestry.  Among those who appeared and participated in the discussion were Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding, along Pennsylvania Farm Bureau President Rick Ebert, Penn State Extension and representatives from various commodity sectors.  Discussion focused on the general state of agriculture across Pennsylvania, as well as the 2014 Farm Bill.  The Farm Bill includes important provisions with regard to research, dairy, conservation, forestry and nutrition.  Panelists also detailed the importance of Pennsylvania’s forests and the need for proper forest management
Thompson Announces Federal Assistance for Milk Producers Due to Tightening Dairy Margins
Oil City, PA –U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson today announced $586,075 in financial assistance to more than 360 Pennsylvania dairy producers enrolled in the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Margin Protection Program for 2016.  The payments, which are for the period of May and June, will be the largest since the program began in 2014, totaling nearly $11.2 million nationwide.  The Margin Protection Program (MPP) for Dairy Producers is a voluntary program created in the 2014 Farm Bill.  Producers must pay an annual administrative fee to participate, which rises for higher margin protection levels.  In return, MPP offers assistance to participating dairy producers when the difference between the price of milk and the average cost of feed falls between $4-8.  The additional assistance is a result of the tightening margin between milk prices and the cost of feed.  Thompson joined several of his colleagues in the House, formally requesting that USDA Secretary T
Thompson: Federal Funding to Combat Disorder Affecting Bats Will Protect Environment and Pennsylvania Industries
Bellefonte, PA –U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) today announced the awarding of $33,400 to Pennsylvania from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to help combat White-Nose Syndrome, a deadly fungus that has killed between 5.7 million and 6.7 million bats across North America.  This is the seventh year the USFWS has provided grants to states for the purpose of research and addressing the disease.  “As a member of the House Natural Resources Committee, I have been active in ensuring the effects of White Nose Syndrome are appropriately addressed. I’ve participated in field hearings on the subject and toured habitats where bat populations have been devastated by this fungus,” Thompson said.  “There is an ecological importance to sustaining the bat population as well as preventing the species from becoming endangered, which would cause great harm to resource production, agriculture and construction across the commonwealth and a large part of the country."
