Rep. Don Young said in a press release that a suspicious white powder sent to his office in Anchorage is concrete.

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

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 The two-thirds Yes vote was required because it would have repealed certain amendments to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act which mandate the discontinuation of traditional incandescent light bulbs as early as 2014.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

During Hunger Action Month, Bipartisan Lawmakers Push to Expand Summer Meals Program
WASHINGTON, D.C.—In recognition of Hunger Action Month, this week Representatives Don Young (AK-At Large) and Rick Larsen (WA-02) are highlighting bipartisan legislation they have introduced to fight childhood hunger and expand access to summer meal programs throughout the country. “Hunger Action Month is a very real reminder that we have a long way to go in addressing food security and hunger in the United States,” said Congressman Don Young. “This month we’re highlighting the important work of the Summer Meals Act, legislation we’ve proposed to maximize the impact of summer meal programs and eliminate red tape for local non-profit organizations that run them across the country. As a former teacher – who personally saw the plight of childhood hunger in my classroom – I did everything in my power to ensure my students had a nutritious meal in front of them each day. As a Congressman, my passion and advocacy for these issues is even stronger. This legislation is on
House Renews Effort to Update and Reauthorize National Fisheries Legislation
Washington, D.C. – Today, Chairman Emeritus Don Young chaired a House Subcommittee on Water, Power and Oceans legislative hearing on four fisheries-related bills, including legislation he’s sponsored to update and reauthorize the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA). Alaska Congressman Don Young Chairing a House Subcommittee Panel on Fisheries-related Legislation “As Alaska’s fisheries continue to flourish, there ultimately comes a time when our laws — even those that are working well — must be reviewed and updated,” said Congressman Don Young. “Just as we did in 2006 – the most recent MSA reauthorization – Congress must work to ensure this law keeps pace with changes in our industry and that the Act is being implemented as intended by Congress. After more than four years of reviewing the MSA, I am honored to once again be leading this fight.” Since the

Young Shares Thoughts on Roadless Rule Decision
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young shared the following statement on the recent “Roadless Rule” decision by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia: “The Clinton-era Roadless Rule was nothing more than a last-ditch effort to end the multiple-use mandate of federal forest lands – something that is required by law, but often ignored by the ivory tower elite,” said Congressman Don Young. “Not only did this rule violate the authorities granted to Alaska within ANILCA, it was done without proper consultation or consideration of the countless communities that rely on responsible resource development. “At the same time Congress is being asked to address our nation’s inability to deal with catastrophic forest fires and the need for improved forest management practices – including access to protect at-risk areas or remove dead and dying trees – we see our hands being tied by this ill-conceive rule. If any reasonable form of Alaska’s timber in
