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.

Thompson Supports Resolution Disapproval of Harmful “Waters of the United States” Rule
Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) today voted in favor of S.J. Res. 22, disapproval of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule. The proposal would otherwise drastically expand federal jurisdiction over state waters under the Clean Water Act. Upon conclusion of the vote, Thompson released the following statement: “The EPA’s Waters of the United States rule would be overly burdensome for private land owners and municipalities, subjecting economic activity to federal permitting, this includes farming, energy production, flood control and infrastructure projects.  This is precisely why the proposal has been opposed in Congress on a bipartisan basis. “In the hearings I have participated in as the chairman of the House Conservation and Forestry Subcommittee, the EPA has yet to provide justification for this rule.  It will not bring about environmental benefits or increased safety for our infrastructure, but rat

State of the Union Address Missing Key National Priorities, Thompson Says
Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) tonight released the following statement in response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address: “I consider safety and security to be the first priority of leadership and the primary constitutional duty of the federal government.  With the recent nuclear test in North Korea, continued violations of international sanctions by Iran, domestic terrorist attacks and the rise of ISIS, threats to our national security have multiplied over the past year.  This evening, we heard very little regarding the President’s plan to address these threats to our nation. “Our nation faces significant challenges beyond national security. We must put forth policies that will support economic growth, bring reform to our outdated and cumbersome tax system, and ensure that every American has access to opportunity in order to live up to their greatest potential.  “I was glad to hear the President mention recent ‘b
