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 ...

US Dept. of Agriculture Loan to Assist Cameron County Health Center Expansion Project, Thompson says
Washington, DC – Congressman Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) today announced that federal funds will assist in the expansion of a Cameron County health center.  The Keystone Rural Health Consortia was awarded a $657,540 loan from the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Office of Rural Development.  The funding will be used to build an addition to Keystone’s dental and medical care clinic in Emporium.  The addition will provide more space for their administrative staff and to provide telemedicine to patients.  In addition to the facility in Emporium, Keystone Rural Health Consortia has locations in Centre and Elk counties. “Having worked in non-profit healthcare for nearly three decades, I can attest to the challenges providers often face in adequately providing services in rural communities,” said Thompson. “I am very pleased that Keystone Rural Health Consortia is expanding the use of telemedicine to help offer quality care to the residents of Cameron Cou
House Passes Thompson’s Cooperative Management of Mineral Rights Act
Washington, DC – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed  Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson’s H.R. 3881, the Cooperative Management of Mineral Rights Act of 2015, which reaffirms the rights of mineral owners in the Allegheny National Forest (ANF). The measure was approved by a vote of 395 to 3.   H.R. 3881, will codify federal court rulings related to the regulation of privately held mineral rights in the ANF. Since 2009, federal courts have determined that the U.S. Forest Service lacks legal authority to restrict access to private mineral rights in the ANF and therefore is prohibited from creating new rules. The legislation now moves to the U.S. Senate for approval. “I am thankful to the overwhelming bipartisan support for this bill, which reaffirms the importance of private property rights and nearly a century of cooperation between private mineral owners and the federal government,” said Thompson, a member of the House Natural Resources Committee. “It was not easy to
Thompson Statement on Closing of DuBois Business College
Washington, DC –U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) today issued the following statement, upon learning that the DuBois Business College (DBC) will soon close its doors after 131 years of serving students and employers.  In addition to the DBC main campus in DuBois, the school operates branch campuses in Huntingdon, Oil City and Philipsburg. “DuBois Business College has served as a valuable resource that has aligned students with careers for more than a century. Today’s announcement is troubling, yet I have been reassured that students will be welcomed at other local institutions, in order to finish their studies. “Situations like this are often complicated by over burdensome federal regulations that have been making it harder and harder for schools like DuBois Business College to operate. In addition to reigning in federal overreach, my commitment remains to closing the skills gap through workforce training and I stand ready to assist the community in identifying the bes

Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5), co-chair of the House Career and Technical Education Caucus and a senior member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce.  The measure reauthorizes and reforms the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act to help more Americans enter the workforce with the skills they need to compete for high-skilled, in-demand jobs. “This bill provides a clear path towards robust career and technical education training, in order to put America back to work and to empower young people with the skills to land in-demand jobs in high-wage industries,” Thompson said.  “As I travel across Pennsylvania’s 5th Congressional District, I am amazed that so many employers are looking for a highly trained workforce.
