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 The two-thirds Yes vote was required because it would have repealed certain amendments to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act which mandate the discontinuation of traditional incandescent light bulbs as early as 2014.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

Young Shares Statement on House Passage of FY17 Funding Package
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young today shared the following statement after House passage of H.R. 244, the Consolidated Appropriations Act for 2017, which funds the federal government through September 30, 2017: “Funding the government is one of the most critical aspects of Congress, particularly the House.  This very clear responsibility to raise and spend money, outlined in the Constitution, should not be forgotten no matter who sits in the White House. While this legislation is far from perfect – a compromise between parties and the President – I believe it was necessary to eliminate the threat of a government shutdown and keep our economy moving. Inaction would have been very bad for both Alaska and the nation, and would have created an unnecessary level of uncertainty and confusion at a time when we should be governing for the betterment of the nation. “This legislation contains a lot of good for Alaska, including large increases to support of milit
Bipartisan Group in U.S. House Introduce Marijuana-Related Banking Legislation
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young, co-founder of the Congressional Cannabis Caucus, today joined a bipartisan group in the U.S. House of Representatives to introduce legislation that allows marijuana-related businesses in states with existing regulatory structures to access the banking system. With eight states and Washington, D.C. now allowing for adult-use recreational marijuana and 29 states legalizing medical marijuana, there is a growing effort in Congress to align federal and state marijuana laws - specifically as they relate to the banking crisis confronting marijuana-related businesses. The Secure and Fair Enforcement Banking Act (SAFE Banking Act) ensures financial institutions can service marijuana-related businesses without the fear of reprisal from the federal government. Currently, hundreds of licensed and regulated businesses do not have access to the banking industry and are unable to accept credit cards, deposit revenues, or write checks to meet payroll
Alaska Delegation Commends Executive Order on Offshore Energy Development
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan, and U.S. Rep. Don Young, all R-Alaska, today joined President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke for the signing ceremony of an Executive Order to implement an America-First Offshore Energy Strategy. The order lifts leasing withdrawals imposed on Alaska’s Arctic, directs the Department of the Interior to conduct a review of the areas available for leasing, and directs a review of certain regulations governing offshore development. “When President Trump took office, he promised to listen to the people and to return power to them, and today he and Secretary Zinke delivered for Alaskans,” Murkowski said. “After the last administration spent eight years systematically closing off access to the Arctic, this executive order puts us back on track to explore and ultimately produce the prolific resources in that region. Alaskans broadly support offshore development in the Arct
Young Supports House-Passage of American Health Care Act
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young today shared the following statement after voting in favor of the House-passed American Health Care Act, legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act: “The reality we face today is clear – the Affordable Care Act is built on a crumbling foundation and is in a dire state of disrepair.  Inaction is not an option; something must be done today to address the soaring rates of premiums, skyrocketing deductibles and the elimination of market competition across the nation. Alaskans and Americans have demanded choices, not mandates, and have resoundingly called for freedom from this one-size-fits-all nightmare that has ignored the needs of so many hardworking families and small businesses. For these many reasons, I am committed to the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. “As we all know, repeal and replace – under the budget reconciliation process – cannot include every legislative fix needed to address the downward s
