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 The two-thirds Yes vote was required because it would have repealed certain amendments to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act which mandate the discontinuation of traditional incandescent light bulbs as early as 2014.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 Applauds Enactment of Legislation Extending Highly Rural Veterans Transportation Program
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young today applauded the bill signing of H.R. 5985, the Department of Veterans Affairs Expiring Authorities Act, which extends numerous Veterans Administration (VA) programs, including the Highly Rural Veteran Transportation Grant (HRTG) program – originally set to expire at the end of Fiscal Year 2017. Congressman Young introduced H.R. 5558, the VA Highly Rural Transportation Program Extension Act, earlier this year to raise awareness for the looming expiration of this program. Through numerous discussions with House Veterans Affairs Committee leadership, Congressman Young secured this one-year extension as part of H.R. 5985. Upon House-passage of H.R. 5985, Congressman Young shared the following statement: “I am committed to standing up for Alaska’s veterans—especially those who live in our many highly-rural areas. The Highly Rural Veteran Transportation program enables all of Alaska’s veterans to receive the care they ea
Young Concludes Successful Visit to Maine for Arctic Council’s Senior Officials Meeting
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young, co-chair of the Congressional Arctic Working Group, recently wrapped up a visit to Portland, ME for the Arctic Council’s Senior Officials Meeting (SAO). Young’s visit included various meetings, discussions and events focused on cooperation, coordination and interaction among Arctic nations and stakeholders. As the only member of the Alaska congressional delegation in attendance, Congressman Young worked to educate others on the unique challenges and opportunities we face as an Arctic nation, including resource development, national security needs and the development of ports, polar icebreakers, and other infrastructure. In addition, Young focused on collaboration between Maine and Alaska, which share many commonalities, including active marine and fishery economies. The gathering represented the third SAO meeting of the Arctic Council. Juneau, AK will host the next SAO meeting from March 7-9, 2017. The U.S Chairmanship of the Arc
Young Supports House-Passage of Midnight Rules Relief Act
Washington, D.C. – In an effort to address the potential onslaught of end-of-term regulations released by the Obama administration in its final weeks, today the House passed H.R. 5982, the Midnight Rules Relief Act of 2016. The legislation establishes a simple, rapid-response method for a new Congress to undo abusive midnight rules submitted during the final 60 legislative days of Congress by an outgoing administration. “Over the last eight years, the Obama administration has moved ahead with one of the most aggressive and costly regulatory agendas in our nation’s history,” said Congressman Don Young. “In Alaska, this amounts to lost jobs, diminished certainty, an unworkable regulatory climate for new development, and roadblocks at every turn.  As the President prepares to leave office, there is serious cause for concern that the next two months will be used to advance some of the most extreme and drastic regulatory policies.” “The Midnight Rules Relief Act gives
Alaska Delegation Slams Decision to Strip Arctic Leases from New OCS Plan
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan, and U.S. Rep. Don Young, all R-Alaska, today condemned the Obama administration’s decision to remove two Alaska lease sales – one each in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas – from its “Proposed Final Program” for Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) leasing for 2017-2022. Eliminating the program’s Arctic sales will yield the weakest offshore development plan in American history and lock up vast resources that are needed to grow our economy, protect national security and keep energy affordable for American families and businesses. “For years, the Obama Administration has tried to convince the American people that it supports an “all-of-the-above” energy policy. Yet, it has consistently delivered crippling blows to the Alaskan people in the form of new regulatory obstacles, insurmountable roadblocks, and overly prescriptive regulations – making in nearly impossible for new development to occur,” Young
