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.

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 The two-thirds Yes vote was required because it would have repealed certain amendments to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act which mandate the discontinuation of traditional incandescent light bulbs as early as 2014.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 ...

Young Applauds Armstrong and Repsol Discovery on Alaska’s North Slope
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young today shared the following statement on Armstrong Energy and Repsol’s discovery on Alaska’s North Slope: “Armstrong Energy – a small scale developer that entered the Alaska market under a very different economic climate in 2008 – has once again proven that there’s no shortage of energy and optimism in Alaska.  Today’s news – what many are calling the largest onshore oil discovery in the United States in more than three decades – is a very positive note for Alaska’s North Slope, our energy sector, our economy and the future of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline.  This announcement underscores the importance of working with our energy partners – at the state and federal level – to support new development and streamline a growing web of regulatory roadblocks.  We must now work to ensure this discovery can be brought to market so we can begin refilling the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. If we fall short in that endeav
House Passes Department of Defense Appropriations Bill for Remainder of FY2017
Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 1301, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2017, legislation that closely reflects the previous year’s efforts to fund domestic and overseas military defense operations. The bipartisan, bicameral legislation – which passed today 371 to 48 – provides a total of $516.1 billion in Department of Defense discretionary funding and $61.8 billion in Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO)  and Global War on Terror funding. “Of all my responsibilities in Congress, one that I take great pride in is supporting our men and women in uniform and providing for the common defense of our nation,” said Congressman Don Young. “Today’s actions – the overwhelming passage of FY17 DOD Appropriations – is an important step to fulfilling our responsibilities and ensuring our military has the resources to address our national security concerns, fund military operations and r

Young Shares Initial Thoughts on House Efforts to Repeal and Replace Affordable Care Act
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young today released the following statement on the introduction of the American Health Care Act, legislation proposed in the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act: “There’s no question, our current healthcare system is broken. We’ve seen it at home and across the nation – skyrocketing premiums, soaring deductibles, the loss of all but one insurer in Alaska and a third of U.S. counties – all of which have eliminated access and forced countless families to make the tough decision to forego health insurance entirely.  Simply put, the system we have in place today is unsustainable and on the verge of total collapse. “I made a commitment long ago to begin working on a process to restore sanity in our healthcare system – a process that transitions us away from a failing healthcare law and towards the next generation of healthcare in the United States. I will continue to review the House’
