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 Supported Bill to Fight Opioid and Heroin Epidemic Heads to President’s Desk
Washington, DC –U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson today joined House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and House colleagues for a signing ceremony of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (S.524).  The bill now goes to President Barack Obama’s desk for signature.  Thompson, a member of the Bipartisan Task Force to Combat the Heroin Epidemic, has been a vocal advocate for addressing this national crisis. “In Pennsylvania alone, last year more than 3,300 people died as a result of drug overdoses, a 23 percent increase over 2014. This is not a rural or urban problem and there is not a community that has been untouched by harms of heroin and opioid use,” said Thompson. “The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act is a necessary step in the right direction to addressing the problems of addiction and drug abuse in our communities,” added Thompson. More than a dozen bills were involved in the package, including: The Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Reduction Act (H.R. 5046):  This leg
Thompson Urges Senate Action on Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act, to Fight National Opioid and Heroin Epidemic
Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson voted to approve the results of a House and Senate conference report, focused on a package of bills intended to turn the tide against the nationwide epidemic of opioid abuse and heroin use. The Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (S.524) conference report must be approved by the U.S. Senate before being sent to President Obama’s desk for his signature.  As a member of the House Bipartisan Task Force to Combat the Heroin Epidemic, Thompson has been actively addressing the issue. “There is not a community across our nation where lives and families have not been affected by this epidemic,” Thompson said.  “This is not a partisan problem and one we must all work to solve. As such, I have met with Pennsylvania Department of Human Services Secretary Ted Dallas to discuss the most appropriate path forward and I am happy this bill has received the support of Pennsylvania’s Governor, Tom Wolf. I now urge the U.S. Senat
Thompson Cosponsored Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act Passed House with Bipartisan Majority
Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) today voted in favor of H.R. 2646, the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act, which was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives with overwhelming bipartisan support. The Thompson cosponsored legislation represents the most significant reform to our nation’s mental health care system in decades.  Before his election to Congress, Thompson provided and managed rehabilitation services for more than two decades, including acute psychiatric care. “The mental health system is outdated and needs to be streamlined in order to adequately serve the more than 11 million Americans living with serious mental and behavioral health issues,” Thompson said.  Provisions in H.R. 2646 will increase treatment for children with mental disorders and people with serious mental illness, foster evidence-based care, address the shortage of psychiatric hospital beds, and empower caregivers to adequately ensure patients receive care be

Washington, DC – This week, the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee unanimously approved H.R. 670, the Special Needs Trust Fairness Act, which was introduced by U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5).   The legislation removes arbitrary legal barriers that prevent individuals with disabilities from independently creating Special Needs Trusts. “Mr. Thompson is to be commended for the masterful way he has lined up bipartisan support for this important law to benefit persons with disabilities,” said Amos Goodall, of the State College based law firm Goodall & Yuchak, P.C. and public policy advocate for the National Association of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA).  “It is an example of his concern for persons who are less fortunate that has been the cornerstone of his activities throughout his career.” Under current law,  disabled individuals are required to have a legal guardian or the courts create a special needs trust on their behalf, regardless of whether or not the
