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 The two-thirds Yes vote was required because it would have repealed certain amendments to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act which mandate the discontinuation of traditional incandescent light bulbs as early as 2014.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 Shares Statement on EPA Proposal to Roll Back WOTUS Rule
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young today issued the following statement in response to the Trump administration’s proposed rule to effectively roll back the Obama-era Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule and re-codify the Clean Water Act (CWA) as it existed prior to 2015: “The WOTUS rule represented so much of what was wrong with the Obama administration – a sweeping expansion of federal jurisdiction, undermining the integrity of longstanding federal-state partnerships, ignoring the opposition of local stakeholders and a majority of states – all through the unilateral action of a federal agency. It’s absolutely the wrong way to govern. “I was pleased to see the Trump administration take action – efforts that closely reflect the work of Congress – to review and ultimately overturn this shortsighted rule. If allowed to stand, there’s no question in my mind this rule would have created insurmountable hurdles for even the most basic activity and devel
Young Pushes for New Ground-based Interceptors in Amendment to National Defense Authorization
Washington, D.C. – As the U.S. House of Representatives continues debate on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018, Alaska Congressman Don Young is pushing for the inclusion of an amendment to strengthen our nation’s missile defense systems and authorize the development of an additional 28 Ground-based Interceptors. Young’s amendment to the NDAA, expected to be voted on this evening, closely reflects legislation he introduced earlier this year with Senator Dan Sullivan – the Advancing America’s Missile Defense Act. Congressman Young speaking in favor of his amendment to the FY18 NDAA (click here to watch). “North Korea has conducted approximately 80 ballistic missile and three nuclear tests under the rogue and irrational dictatorship of Kim Jong-Un.  Recent aggression makes matters even worse.  On July 4, 2017 – our Independence Day – it was announce
House Committee Passes Young’s Legislation to Facilitate Construction of King Cove Road
Washington, D.C. – Today, the House Natural Resources Committee passed legislation introduced by Alaska Congressman Young – H.R. 218, the King Cove Land Exchange Act – to authorize a land exchange to facilitate the construction of a life-saving road from the isolated community of King Cove to the City of Cold Bay, the home to an all-weather airport featuring Alaska’s fifth-longest runway. The committee passage of H.R. 218 comes one day after the Department of Interior issued a permit to the State of Alaska to begin an initial assessment on construction of the 11-mile road. Congressman Young speaking on behalf of H.R. 218 during the House Natural Resources Committee (click here to watch). “I remind everybody in this room, 19 people have died because they didn’t have this road. Just put yourself in that position, as you sit here,” said Congressman Don Young during the Committee markup. “If
Young Commends Successful Missile Defense Agency Test
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young, a member of the House Missile Defense Caucus, today applauded the successful U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) intercept test of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) element of the nation's ballistic missile defense system, located at the Pacific-Spaceport Complex Alaska (PSCA) on Kodiak, Island. “For years, intelligence reports have predicted North Korea would develop and test a ballistic missile capable of reaching the United States. Now that this day has come, we must be even more diligent and committed in our support for America’s missile defense shield, including numerous assets and technologies located in Alaska,” said Congressman Don Young.  “Today’s successful MDA intercept test from Kodiak further provides the American people with a sense of safety and security in light of recent aggressions by North Korea. It’s a key example of our nation’s ongoing commitment to providing robust missile defense,
