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 Votes in Support of Continuing Resolution, Funding for Battle Against Zika and Drug Epidemic
Washington, DC – Congressman Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) tonight voted in favor of the Fiscal Year 2017 Continuing Resolution, Zika Response, and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Funding Legislation.  The bill includes a short-term appropriations measure, known as a Continuing Resolution (CR), in addition to funding to fight the Zika virus, help address the nation’s prescription opioid and heroin epidemic, and resources to assist America’s service members and veterans.  The bill ensures the government will continue to fully operate through Dec. 9, 2016.  After the vote, Thompson released the following statement: “Today’s vote ensures that the Department of Veteran’s Affairs and military construction projects are funded through the next Fiscal Year, remaining federal operations through December, while also providing assistance to communities devastated by flooding and areas battling the Zika virus.  The bill also directs funding to the Departments of Justice
House Approves Thompson Special Needs Trust Fairness and Medicaid Improvement Act
Washington, DC – The U.S. House today, by a margin of 383 to 22, approved the Special Needs Trust Fairness and Medicaid Improvement Act, H.R. 670, which was authored by U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5).  The legislation removes arbitrary legal barriers that prevent people with disabilities from independently creating Special Needs Trusts, which are used to supplement daily living expenses and care that would not otherwise be covered by Medicaid and Social Security. “The Special Needs Trust Fairness and Medicaid Improvement Act corrects a discrepancy in current law that does not allow for a person with a disability to create his or her own Special Needs Trust,” said Thompson. “This is a fundamental issue of equal protection under the law for those who are facing life-changing disease or disability,” added Thompson.   Under current law, individuals with disabilities are required to either have a guardian establish a Special Needs Trust, or they must petition the court
Thompson Sponsored Bill to Delay Harmful Department of Labor Overtime Expansion Rule Passes House
Washington, DC –U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5), a member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, today voted in favor of H.R. 6094, the Regulatory Relief for Small Businesses, Schools and Nonprofits Act, which passed the House by a margin of 246 to 177.  The bill would delay the Department of Labor’s final overtime rule for six months. This regulation, which expands overtime pay eligibility requirements for employees making $23,660 to $47,476 annually, is scheduled to go into effect on Dec. 1, 2016. “While there is little doubt that overtime rules are in need of modernization, this new set of regulations has the potential to significantly damage non-profits, educational institutions, and small businesses,” said Thompson. Since first proposed, Rep. Thompson and several of his colleagues have reached out to the Department of Labor, seeking clarification on technical aspects of the overtime proposal and to request an extension of the public comment peri
Thompson Votes to Override Obama Veto, Allow U.S. Citizens to Bring Lawsuits Against Foreign Sponsors of Terrorism
Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) today voted to override President Barack Obama’s veto of The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (S.2040).  The House vote of 348 to 77 follows Senate passage of 97 to 1. Thompson issued the following statement regarding the veto override: “The Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism will give families of those who died during the September 11, 2001 attacks a legal standing to file suit against alleged state sponsors of terrorism.  This long overdue measure also sends a message to all sponsors of terrorism that whenever Americans are harmed that there will be consequences. Despite the President’s veto, it has been reassuring to see so many lawmakers come together across party lines, in order to give these families their day in court.”
