U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson tonight released the following statement in response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address: “The President had the opportunity to chart a new path on a set of priorities that the American people have called for and both political parties can agree on, and we heard some productive talk here tonight,” said Rep.

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 Assists St. Bernard’s Pastor Return to U.S.
After lengthy Immigration Process Father Quimno Scheduled to Return WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) today announced that the pastor of St. Bernard’s Church in Falls Creek, Pa. will return to the parish after a lengthy process involving U.S. Immigration. The Rev. Matias Madera Quimno, who is affectionately called “Father Matt” by his parishioners, is a native of the Philippines who has resided in the U.S. since 2005. In addition to being pastor of the St. Bernard’s parish, he also works full-time as a chaplain at Penn Highlands Clearfield.  As chaplain, he works on-call to cover emergency situations and anointing of the sick. In 2015, Father Matt went to renew his paperwork with U.S. Immigration. Due to a heavy processing backlog his green card was delayed, which eventually resulted in the need for Father Matt to return to the Philippines for additional screenings regarding his immigrant visa petition. After nearly two years of working i
Thompson Statement on President Trump’s Executive Action on Pipelines
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) today released the following statement in regard to President Donald J. Trump’s executive action to advance two pipeline projects in the United States: “I applaud President Trump for taking action today that will benefit American manufacturers, workers and families. Approval of the Keystone Pipeline and other energy infrastructure projects was held up by political pressures upon the previous administration. This type of artificial red tape must be removed to unleash the true economic potential we have in America." 
Thompson, Butterfield Reintroduce Access to Inpatient Rehabilitation Therapy Act
Bill would direct Medicare to once again cover recreational therapy for patients WASHINGTON – U.S. Representatives Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (R-PA) and G.K. Butterfield (D-NC) today reintroduced legislation that would direct the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to cover physician-prescribed recreational therapy services. H.R. 626, the Access to Inpatient Rehabilitation Therapy Act of 2017, would amend the Social Security Act to include recreational therapy among the therapy methods that can be considered part of an intensive rehabilitation therapy program in an inpatient rehabilitation hospital or unit. This legislation would provide flexibility to CMS’ definition of “intensity of therapy” requirement. Essentially, the requirement helps CMS determine which beneficiaries are appropriate for treatment in an inpatient rehabilitation hospital or unit. Until 2010, physicians could prescribe, and CMS would cover, recreational therapy for patients who have brain injuries
Thompson Issues Statement on President's Executive Order
WASHINGTON -- U.S. Representative Glenn 'GT' Thompson (PA-05) today issued the following statement on President Donald J. Trump's travel ban: “The first duty of the federal government is to ensure the safety of American residents and our families. We want to guarantee that each individual entering the U.S. is properly vetted, so we’re not importing possible terrorists or those who would support terrorism. We know that ISIS is attempting to infiltrate the West through refugee programs. This has happened in Europe already, and I believe the intent of this executive order was to strengthen the screening process. “However, I am concerned an unintended consequence negatively impacted lawful residents, such as green card holders, and firmly believe they should be allowed to enter and exit the country under the law. If anything, we learned under the Obama Administration that the executive alone cannot run the country, the legislative branch must be involved in providing an adequate solu
