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.

Washington, D.C. – Today, Alaska Congressman Don Young joined a bipartisan group in Congress to introduce the Protecting Veterans Credit Act, which works to ensure veterans’ credit scores and credit reports are not adversely affected by delayed medical payments associated with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) Veterans Choice Program and other VA Community Care programs. The legislation is sponsored by Rep. John Delaney (D-MD) and has a total of 20 cosponsors. “The implementation of the VA Choice Act had many failures, but one of the most egregious was that veterans were getting dinged on their credit score because the VA was behind or delayed in processing payments,” said Congressman Don Young. “I personally heard from numerous Alaska veterans who were put in this situation, which is beyond unacceptable. I’m proud to join Rep. Delaney as an original sponsor of the Protecting Veterans Credit Act to ensure veterans are not penalized for the bureaucratic failures of the
