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 ...

House Funds Department of Homeland Security, Counters Unilateral Immigration Orders
Washington, D.C. - U.S. Representative Glenn 'GT' Thompson (PA-5) today voted to support H.R. 240, the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2015, which provides funding for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and includes provisions rolling back the President’s executive orders on immigration that are set to take effect in mid-2015. "Today I was proud to support passage of legislation that provides funding for the federal agencies tasked with protecting our homeland,” stated Thompson. “H.R. 240 also delivers on commitments that I have made to the people I represent.  The legislation improves border security, protects American jobs, and holds the President accountable for his abuses of executive power.”   H.R. 240 provides for the largest operational force levels in the history of the Customs and Border Protection agency, and boost investments in critical security initiatives, including around-the-clock surveillance of air, land, and sea approaches

Skills of Central PA Discusses Burden of Health Care Law, House Repeals Related Provisions to Protect Workforce
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) today voted to support H.R. 30, the Save American Workers Act.  The legislation, which would repeal the thirty hour work week requirement under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 252-172. “Working families in the 5th district and across the country are seeing wages reduced and being forced into part-time employment as a result of the Affordable Care Act’s thirty hour work week requirement,” stated Thompson. “Today the House acted to repeal this flawed policy by passing the Save American Workers Act. Small businesses and non-profit organizations should not be placed in a position where they cannot grow and cannot continue providing good paying jobs for members of our community.” The ACA requires employers with more than 50 full-time employees to provide employee health insurance. Because the law defines "full time" as thirty hours or more, many companies

The legislation passed the House by 266 to 153. "Today, the House passed legislation approving the Keystone XL Pipeline with broad bipartisan support.  This is an energy and infrastructure project that over its lifespan will inject billions into the U.S. economy,” stated Rep. Thompson. “Despite bipartisan support, the President has announced his intention to veto this common sense proposal.” “It’s been 2,303 days and counting since the Keystone XL pipeline was first submitted to the State Department for approval. Since then, the project has been found it to be environmentally sound and a certified job creator, including contracts for Pennsylvania based firms. It is time for President Obama to set aside politics and act in the best interest of the country by allowing this project
