Delivery to Rep. Don Young's office not hazardous

Rep. Don Young said in a press release that a suspicious white powder sent to his office in Anchorage is concrete. "The FBI has notified Congressman Young’s State Director, Chad Padgett, that the substance is in fact a mixture of concrete and is not hazardous," the release said. Other similar packages were sent to the Fairbanks offices of Sen. Mark Begich and Sen. Lisa Murkowski. Begich's spokeswoman Julie Hasquet said that as of 6 p.m. on Monday, Begich had not received a report as to the contents of the package sent to his office. Murkowski's office was not immediately ...

Young Wants National Park Service To Get Out of the Water...

In perhaps just the most recent example of legislative might, U.S. Rep. Don Young of Alaska is determined to kick the National Park Service out of the water at Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve. The Republican, outraged that park rangers handcuffed a 70-year-old last fall when he failed to meet their requests to answer a few questions and show them his boat registration papers, Congressman Young attached a rider to the Interior funding bill last week that "(F)orbids the National Park Service from enforcing regulations activities on waters in Alaska’s Yukon-Charley National ...

Alaska Congr. Don Young Votes Yes On Light Bulb Bill

Alaska Congressman Don Young was one of 233 House members to vote against outlawing standard incandescent light bulbs, but it was not enough. Unfortunately, it required a Yes vote from two-thirds of House members (285), and so HR 2417, known as the Better Use of Light Bulbs Act, failed. The two-thirds Yes vote was required because it would have repealed certain amendments to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act which mandate the discontinuation of traditional incandescent light bulbs as early as 2014. Read the full roll call vote HERE or HERE. The vote split along party lines, with only 10 ...

E&E News: Young introduces resolutions to undo drilling, hunting rules
E&E News: Young introduces resolutions to undo drilling, hunting rules By Emily Yehle, E&E News reporter Alaska Republican Rep. Don Young wants lawmakers to use the Congressional Review Act to strike down recent regulations on drilling and hunting in his state. Young introduced two joint resolutions on Friday. H.J. Res. 34 would undo final operating standards for exploratory drilling in the Arctic, while H.J. Res. 35 would reverse hunting limitations in Alaska's national wildlife refuges. The CRA gives Congress the power to undo regulations enacted within the last 60 legislative days. That means rules released on or after June 13 are fair game, according to the Congressional Research Service. The Interior Department released the exploratory drilling rule in July. It requires companies to follow numerous safety requirements when drilling in the Arctic, including maintaining a backup rig and having immediate access to blowout prevention equipm
Young Applauds Efforts to Overturn Debilitating Stream Buffer Rule
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young today applauded the Senate passage of H.J. Res. 38, a joint resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act, which would overturn the Department of Interior’s Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement’s final rule known as the “Stream Buffer Rule.” H.J. Res. 38 passed the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday by a vote of 228 to 194 and now moves to the President’s desk for signature. “This rule was a thinly veiled attempt to destroy the coal mining industry and regulate hardworking Americans right out of their livelihoods,” said Congressman Young. “Sadly, the Obama administration’s war on coal manifested into some of the worst rule making I’ve seen in years – debilitating new regulations focused on eliminating one of our nation’s most reliable domestic energy sources. By failing to cooperate with existing stakeholders and states, ignoring numerous advancements made in technology, and n
Young Shares Comments on Recent Immigration Actions
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young today shared the following statement on President Trump’s most recent actions on immigration: “Over the past three days, I have closely reviewed the President’s actions on immigration – a 90 day pause on travel from seven, heightened-threat nations identified by our intelligence community, Congress and the Obama administration –  a temporary halt to refugee resettlement in the United States for 120 days, and an indefinite halt to Syrian refugee resettlement. “As many will agree, I believe the roll-out of this order was flawed. It left those tasked with implementing this policy with inadequate information and little direction, and resulted in what many believe to be the wrongful detention of certain lawful residents of the United States. The White House and the Department of Homeland Security are working to clarify this language, including a clear exception for green card holders, to ensure its implementation is c
Congressman Young Works to Overturn Obama-Era Rules Impacting Alaska
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young is moving forward with an effort to overturn two Obama-era rules impacting the management of fish and game upon Alaska refuge lands and future development and exploration in the Arctic Outer Continental Shelf. The actions represent a collective effort in Congress to overturn costly and often politically charged rules – issued in the final months of the Obama Administration – through the use of the Congressional Review Act (CRA). The Act is a powerful Congressional tool to disapprove of new federal regulations through an expedited legislative process, requiring a simple majority in both Chambers and the signature of the President. Congressman Young introduced the following resolutions of disapproval: H.J. Res 47, a joint resolution of disapproval under the CRA, would overturn a Department of Interior (DOI) final rule governing oil and gas exploration in the Arctic OCS, which would add upwards of $2 billion in additional regula
