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 The two-thirds Yes vote was required because it would have repealed certain amendments to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act which mandate the discontinuation of traditional incandescent light bulbs as early as 2014.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

House Approves 12-Part Appropriations Package, Includes Alaska Efforts and Priorities Championed by Congressman Young
Washington, D.C. – Today the U.S. House of Representatives successfully approved H.R. 3354, the Make America Secure and Prosperous Appropriations Act, a 12-part appropriations package that outlines the nation’s spending priorities for Fiscal Year 2018. The bill, which included the consideration of hundreds of amendments, represents movement towards returning to regular order and completing consideration of annual appropriations legislation before the beginning of the new fiscal year. “For years, our nation’s fiscal and economic policies have moved us further and further away from the path to prosperity and closer to financial ruin,” said Congressman Don Young. “With numerous patch-work deals and last minute spending agreements, we have made little progress in dealing with our staggering level of debt. This package – a complete appropriations package that takes a serious look at our nation’s spending while reining in often wasteful or overgrown government programs, repr
Congressman Young Shares Statement on Passing of Ermalee Hickel
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young today shared the following on the passing of former Alaska first lady Ermalee Hickel: “Today, I join Alaskans from across our state in mourning the loss of Ermalee Hickel – a truly remarkable lady and champion for our state. Wally Hickel often spoke of coming to Alaska with only 37 cents in his pocket, but he struck gold when he met and married Ermalee. She was an exceptional person – a fantastic partner and even more remarkable mother. As saddened as I am to know she’s gone, I’m happy to know that she’ll be with the Lord and with Wally. Ermalee was a true gift to the state she helped build; she was an Alaskan through and through and I’m honored to have called her a friend.”   ###
