Thompson Supported National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 Passes House
Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) this evening voted in favor of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDDA) for Fiscal Year 2017 (H.R. 4909), which passed the House by a vote of 277 to 147. “Our Armed Forces face unprecedented threats and we must ensure our service men and women have the resources necessary to address emerging and existing threats across the globe,” said Thompson. "This defense authorization will help rebuild our military after several years of force reductions and takes into account the need to modernize equipment and troop readiness," added Thompson.  The NDAA authorizes more than $610 billion for defense-related programs and includes a scheduled 2.1 percent pay increase for America’s service men and women. The legislation enhances and simplifies health care for service members, veterans and their families, extending care at military treatment facilities beyond normal business hours and provides new health care coverage options.

Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson, chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation and Forestry, held a hearing focused on the effect of environmental regulations and voluntary conservation programs on rural farms across the nation.  This is the first hearing in the Focus on the Farm Economy series, where the House Agriculture Committee’s six subcommittees will examine the growing influence of the federal government on rural farms.  “The Farm Bill has helped farmers reduce soil erosion, improve water quality and preserve farmland for future generations,” Thompson said.  “However, federal agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Environmental Protection, can also present challenges to farming through costly regulations that provide little environmental benefit, while undermining the productivity of farms,” added Thompson. As part of the Focus on the Farm Economy series, the subcommittees will closely examine the 56 percent decline in
