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.

MEDIA ADVISORY: Thompson to Recognize Medal of Honor Recipient Army Specialist Ross McGinnis
Bellefonte, PA – On Monday, Oct. 24, at 6 p.m., the Post Office in Knox, Clarion County, will be formally designated as the Specialist Ross A. McGinnis Memorial Post Office, U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) said today.  Thompson will be joined at the event by members of the McGinnis family, along with representatives from American Legion Post 720 and the Servicemen’s Club of Knox. McGinnis, who was a native of Knox, lost his life in the line of duty on Dec. 4, 2004, while his U.S. Army platoon was on mounted patrol in Adhamiyah, Iraq.  During the course of the patrol, an insurgent on a nearby rooftop threw a grenade into a Humvee carrying McGinnis and other troops.  Without hesitation or regard for his own life, McGinnis threw his body on top of the grenade, saving the lives of his fellow soldiers.  He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor by President George W. Bush in 2008. In response to the bravery shown by Spec. McGinnis, Thompson and Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) s
Thompson, Lawmakers Seek Assurances on Potentially Harmful EPA Wastewater Rule
Bellefonte, PA –U.S. Reps. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5), Mike Kelly (PA-3) and Keith Rothfus (PA-12) today wrote to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy, regarding the “Zero Discharge” rule. This regulation, which went into effect in August, creates new federal standards for the discharge of wastewater derived from “unconventional oil and gas” at publically-owned treatment works (POTWs).  The letter asks EPA to ensure that conventional oil and gas production, which has occurred in Pennsylvania for generations, will not be subject to the new rules.  Thompson and Kelly had previously written to the EPA to express concern that the regulation, as written, would affect the treatment of wastewater from traditional conventional oil and gas wells. In both letters, the lawmakers expressed concern over the definition of an “unconventional” oil and gas well, which are typically associated with the Marcellus and Utica Shale gas drilling industry.  Th

Bellefonte, PA – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) will join with disability rights advocates on Monday, Oct. 17, at 2 p.m., for a press conference at the Centre County Bar Association in Bellefonte, highlighting the Special Needs Trust Fairness and Medicaid Improvement Act, or H.R. 670.  The legislation, which was authored by Thompson, removes 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 by covered by Medicaid and Social Security.  The measure passed the U.S. House of Representatives with broad bipartisan support in September, by a margin of 383 to 22. The press conference was organized in conjunction with the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), which, at the event, will formally recognize Thompson’s efforts on behalf of people with disabilities.  WHO: U.S. Rep.
