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 The two-thirds Yes vote was required because it would have repealed certain amendments to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act which mandate the discontinuation of traditional incandescent light bulbs as early as 2014.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 Co-Authors Letter Urging “Respect for Medical Marijuana Laws” Language in Upcoming Spending Bill
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young recently co-authored a bipartisan letter to the Chair and Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice and Science, requesting the inclusion of language in the Fiscal Year 2018 spending bill that would bar the Department of Justice from using resources to prosecute individuals who are acting in compliance with their state’s medical marijuana laws.  The letter was signed 43 members of the House of Representatives. “As you prepare the Fiscal Year 2018 Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies appropriations bill, we respectfully request that you include language barring the Department of Justice from prosecuting those who comply with their state’ medical marijuana laws. We believe such a policy is not only consistent with the wishes of a bipartisan majority of the members of the House, but also with the wishes of the American people,” the co-authors wrote. “Since 2014, the House of R
Young Welcomes Army Decision to Protect Integrity and End Strength of JBER’s 4-25
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young today shared the following statement in response to the U.S. Army announcement to retain the full brigade end strength for 4-25 Infantry Brigade Combat Team at Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson (JBER). “Since the Army first announced its planned reduction of JBER’s 4-25, our united congressional delegation has fought hard to preserve its integrity and end strength. Today’s announcement underscores the incredible capability 4-25 IBCT offers to United States Army and the nation,” said Congressman Don Young. “Not only are they the only airborne brigade in the Pacific and the only arctic-capable airborne brigade in the U.S. Army, they are one of the finest light infantry units in the entire military. The Army’s decision to deploy members of 4-25 to Afghanistan – in support of Operation Freedom’s Sentinel – further emphasizes the strength and tenacity of our Alaska trained military men and women.

Alaska Delegation Reintroduces Alaska Native Veterans Land Allotment Equity Act
WASHINGTON, DC – The Alaska Congressional Delegation is continuing its efforts to provide equitable treatment to Alaska Native Vietnam Veterans by reintroducing the Alaska Native Veterans Land Allotment Equity Act. The legislation would amend the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act to allow approximately 2,800 Alaska Natives who served during the Vietnam era, and missed an earlier opportunity because of that service, to apply for their government-promised Native allotment. “This has always been an issue of equity and fairness; about rectifying a wrong for our Alaska Native Vietnam Veterans who so proudly served this nation,” said Congressman Don Young. “This legislation would finally bring this issue to a close and give Alaska Native Vietnam veterans the opportunity to obtain lands promised to them under federal law. It’s a downright travesty that decades later, these honorable men and women are still waiting to receive what was promised to them. As I’ve said before,

It’s my honor today to give the Congressional Western Caucus Weekly Address. When I say from Alaska – this is the 663,000 sq. mile state. It is also, landmass wise, if you take all the land east of the Mississippi, from the tip of Maine to the tip of Florida – that’s part of Alaska. In that area they have 253 Congressman and 52 Senators, and then there’s myself. I enjoy that and love being a representative of a Western State. We’re the furthest Western state in the Uni
