Congressman Glenn “GT” Thompson named Chairman of House Agriculture Committee

WASHINGTON – The new Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee in the U.S. Congress is local Congressman Glenn “GT” Thompson.

It is the first time since the Civil War era that a Congressman from Pennsylvania holds that position.

Thompson says he is already receiving good input from farmers in his Central Pennsylvania district as the committee he now leads prepares to write a new national farm bill.

Rural healthcare, rural education, rural utilities, broadband, and crypto currencies are other issues that Thompson says are top priorities on the committee’s agenda.
