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 Passes Bipartisan Highway Funding Bill
Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) voted to support H.R. 5021, the Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2014, which authorizes funding to address a looming shortfall to the Highway Trust Fund (HTF) and extends federal surface transportation programs through May of 2015.  The bill passed the U.S. House of Representatives with bipartisan support by a vote of 367-55. “This bipartisan agreement ensures stable funding for the Highway Trust Fund so critical investments in infrastructure can continue during these critical summer months,” stated Thompson. “It remains my priority to support a long term transportation reauthorization, which will include a fiscally sound and reliable funding source, so that states and local planning agencies will have some certainty, our economy will keep moving, and most importantly, that we can improve the safety of our roads and bridges.” In July 2012, Congress reauthorized federal surface transportat
Thompson Lauds Passage of Bipartisan, Bicameral Job Training Reform Bill; Legislation Set to Become Law
Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed with bipartisan support the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (H.R. 803), legislation that will help put Americans back to work by reforming the nation’s outdated workforce development system.  The legislation is based upon the House-passed SKILLS Act, was recently passed by the Senate and now is set to become law upon the President’s signature. “America's competitiveness depends upon a qualified and trained workforce,” stated Thompson. “By creating greater coordination among federal, state and local workforce training programs and services, the workforce training system can better identify employment in high-demand industries, and also ensure Americans are more well equipped to climb the ladder of opportunity.”   Thompson serves as a member of the House Education Committee’s Higher Education & Workforce Training Subcommittee, which was responsible for drafting the initial House version o

Thompson will attend the Annual 4th of July Parade in Warren, PA, the Lawrence Park Township Independence Day Parade in Erie, PA, and the Central Pennsylvania 4th Fest in Centre County, PA. ###
Video: All Children Are Equal - The Need for a More Equitable Allocation of Title I Funding
Remarks: "Mr.Speaker, this week I had the opportunity to join rural school advocates from across the country here in Washington for the release of the ‘Why Rural Matters’ 2013-14 report, a biennial report from the Rural School and Community Trust, which analyzes the state of early education for communities in each of the 50 states. This important research document gives policymakers and the public fresh insight into the social and economic contexts that influence educational outcomes and also reinforces how these conditions must be better understood - including in the context of how the federal government allocates Title I funding. Title I was initially created to offset the impacts of poverty on student learning. Unfortunately the report shows once again that children receive preferential treatment based not on their economic circumstances but on the basis of their zip code. Surely my colleagues on both sides of the aisle believe that all children are equal. Unfortunately, mos
