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 The two-thirds Yes vote was required because it would have repealed certain amendments to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act which mandate the discontinuation of traditional incandescent light bulbs as early as 2014.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

House Committee Passes Young’s Alexander Creek Legislation
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, the House Committee on Natural Resources unanimously approved legislation introduced by Alaska Congressman Don Young to settle a long-standing claim by the Alaska Natives from Alexander Creek, Alaska. The legislation, H.R. 1418, would amend the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) to recognize Alexander Creek, Alaska as an Alaska Native Village – entitling them to the same benefits entrusted to other Native Village Corporations established pursuant to the law. Congressman Young providing speaking in support of H.R. 1418, the Alexander Creek Recognition Act (click here to watch). “Congress passed ANCSA in 1971, and the legislation provided for the formation of Alaska Native Regional and Village Corporations.  These Corporations received land and benefits to support the well-being of their respective Native shareholders.  In order to form a Village Corporatio
House Passes Bipartisan Package of Appropriations Bills
Washington, D.C. – Yesterday, the House approved H.R. 3219, the Make America Secure Appropriations Act, a bipartisan package that includes the Fiscal Year 2018 Defense, Military Construction-VA, Energy and Water Development, and Legislative Branch appropriations bills. “For years, this process has eroded away from regular order into a series of late hour, multi-package efforts to fund the government. It’s no way to do business, but it was necessary as we look to prioritize spending as we approach the end of the fiscal year,” said Congressman Don Young. “Largely, this bill makes a number of important improvements and reforms to address the size and scope of our federal agencies, begin rebuilding our military – including readiness, construction and equipment for Alaska-based missions – support our nation’s veterans and servicemembers, and strengthen energy and infrastructure programs important to Alaska and the nation. Although there’s always room for improvement, and
House Approves New Sanctions on North Korea, Iran and Russia
Washington, D.C. – Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved H.R. 3364, the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanction Act, legislation authorizing additional sanctions on North Korea, Iran, and Russia for recent actions that undermine the national security of the United States and its allies. Alaska Congressman Young, who joined 418 of his colleagues in support of the legislation, shared the following statement: “This legislation is an important and appropriate step to holding bad actors accountable for their misguided and aggressive actions,” said Congressman Don Young. “By approving these sanctions, we send a very clear message: the United States will not tolerate these types of hostile acts, including the support of state-sponsored terrorism, repeated human rights violations, the development and testing of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), and threats to U.S national security and global stability. I believe sanctions can and wi
Young Responds to Inquiries on Healthcare Negotiations in Senate
Washington, D.C. – In response to questions regarding ongoing healthcare negotiations in the Senate, particularly as they pertain to Alaska-specific priorities, Congressman Don Young shared the following statement: “Very simply, Obamacare is a broken law that continues to fail Alaskan families, workers and small businesses. My position has been and continues to be that it must be repealed and reworked. As for discussions on Alaska-specific priorities, I’ve known from the beginning what’s at risk. However, I’ve never been one to panic just because someone says ‘fire’. My job is to serve the Alaskan people and work with the administration to ensure it gets done. That’s what I’m going to do.” Congressman Young has been in direct communication with senior administration officials on the issues of healthcare and resource development as recently as yesterday. He remains closely involved in discussions and negotiations pertaining to healthcare reform, particularly as t
