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 The two-thirds Yes vote was required because it would have repealed certain amendments to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act which mandate the discontinuation of traditional incandescent light bulbs as early as 2014.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

Alaska Delegation Introduces Stand-Alone King Cove Legislation
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan, and U.S. Rep. Don Young, all R-Alaska, this week introduced identical bills in both chambers of Congress to facilitate a life-saving road for the isolated community of King Cove, Alaska. Without the road, local residents continue to be at the mercy of high winds, dense fog, and strong storms that prevent safe and timely transportation during medical emergencies.   “It has now been more than 30 months since Sec. Jewell callously rejected a life-saving road for King Cove, and local residents have been forced to endure medevac after medevac since then,” Murkowski said. “The Obama administration clearly has no intention of ever helping this community, but we cannot simply leave the health and safety of nearly 1,000 Alaskans to chance. We need to end the needless pain and suffering caused by the status quo before an even greater tragedy occurs, and we can do that by approving this short, simple road.” “T
Young Condemns U.S. Fish and Wildlife Final Rule Restricting State-Approved Management Practices Upon Refuges
Kenai Peninsula, AK – Alaska Congressman Don Young today issued the following statement condemning the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s final rule regarding wildlife management practices upon federal refuges within the State of Alaska: “Make no mistake – the size, scope and impact of this rule is enormous,” said Alaska Congressman Don Young. “With over 76.8 million acres of wildlife refuges in Alaska – an area equaling the size of New Mexico – this unilateral power grab fundamentally alters Alaska’s authority to manage wildlife across all areas of our state. Not only does this rule undermine promises made in the Alaska Statehood Compact, it violates the law by ignoring provisions Senator Stevens and I secured within the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) to protect Alaska’s sovereignty and management authority. This newest attempt to exert federal authority over Alaska has not gone unchallenged and I will continue to work every angle in Congre
Rep. Young Honored with Spirit of Enterprise Award in Soldotna
Kenai Peninsula, AK – At a Joint Kenai/Soldotna Chamber of Commerce Luncheon, yesterday the U.S. Chamber of Commerce presented Alaska Congressman Don Young with its annual Spirit of Enterprise Award – given in recognition of his support for pro-growth, pro-jobs policies during the first session of the 114th Congress. Congressman Young receiving the Spirit of Enterprise Award at the Joint Kenai/Soldotna Chamber of Commerce Luncheon. “In Alaska and across the nation, a strong and healthy economy depends on the many contributions of our small businesses,” said Congressman Don Young. “With more than half of the nation’s private workforce and a large majority of new innovations coming from small business, it’s extremely important we support policies that drive our nation’s economic engine. I thank the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for this recognition and will continue working to protect and provi
Alaska Delegation Praises F-35 Progress
ANCHORAGE, AK – Today the Alaska Congressional Delegation released the following statements after the U.S. Air Force announced that the first F-35A squadron capable of handling a range of combat missions, known as Initial Operating Capability (IOC), is now ready. IOC demonstrates the confidence the Air Force has in the F-35 program and their success in ensuring the first squadron is ready for combat. "Today is a great day for the Air Force and the future security of our nation," said Congressman Young.  "Like other defense procurement programs, the F-35 has faced setbacks. However, thanks to tough congressional oversight and dedicated Air Force leadership, this next generation of American air superiority has excelled and is now officially ready for Air Force operations. I look forward to the day in the not so distant future when Alaska will be our nation's strategic and tactical powerhouse in the Asia Pacific and the Arctic — with two squadrons of F-3
