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 The two-thirds Yes vote was required because it would have repealed certain amendments to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act which mandate the discontinuation of traditional incandescent light bulbs as early as 2014.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

House Sends General Mattis Waiver to President’s Desk
Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives and Alaska Congressman Don Young approved S. 84, legislation granting a waiver to Retired Marine Corps General James Mattis to serve as the next Secretary of Defense. The waiver, which would exempt Gen. Mattis from federal law requiring a minimum of seven years between military service and appointment as Secretary of Defense, passed the House 268 to 151. The bill, which passed in the Senate 81 to 17, is expected to be signed by President Obama in the coming days. “Given the unique opportunity to weigh in on this important nomination, I did not make this decision lightly,” said Congressman Don Young. “Having reviewed General Mattis’ career and extraordinary record of service, I fully believe he has the skills and experience necessary to lead the Department of Defense. General Mattis has led, and lost, men and women in combat – in the Persian Gulf War, in Afghanistan and Iraq. He has a firm understanding of the conf
Young Shares Statement on Obamacare Repeal and Replacement Effort
  Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young today released the following statement after House passage S.Con.Res.3, a congressional budget resolution laying the foundation for a repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act: “For years, this Administration has done its best to convince the American people that the President’s healthcare law is working and is in fact affordable. However, in Alaska and across the nation we’ve seen the exact opposite,” said Congressman Don Young. “The facts speak for themselves. Year after year, Alaskans have faced skyrocketing premiums and soaring deductibles – pricing hardworking individuals and families out of access to healthcare entirely. The promise for increased competition and lower prices represents another major failure in this law, as insurers flee the individual marketplace and leave Alaska and more than one third of U.S. counties with just one insurer in 2017.  Simply put, the real world application of this
Young Comments on Newest NPR-A Discovery
Washington, D.C. – Alaska Congressman Don Young today shared the following statement on the announcement by ConocoPhillips newest discovery in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska: “Those adamantly opposed to resource development, including our current Interior Secretary, have attempted to sell the Alaskan and American people on the idea that Alaska’s energy sector is on its last legs. I fundamentally disagree,” said Alaska Congressman Don Young. Today’s announcement by ConocoPhillips – a discovery in the NPR-A that  could yield 300 million barrels of oil – is living proof that Alaska’s abundant energy sector is alive and well. Although we face many challenges, many at the hands of an unwilling federal partner, there is great hope that we will once again fill the Trans-Alaska pipeline, provide high-paying/quality jobs for our workforce and reignite an industry which has provided so much for our state.  As we move forward, I will continue to work with our fed
Delegation Introduces Bill to Accelerate AMHT Land Exchange
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan, and U.S. Rep. Don Young, all R-Alaska, today introduced companion bills to accelerate an equal value land exchange between the Alaska Mental Health Trust (Trust) and the U.S. Forest Service. The legislation, which nearly passed last Congress, protects important community viewsheds, local trails, and other conservation values while expediting much-needed timber for local operators and generating new revenues for mental health services across the state.                                                “Our bill protects lands that are worth protecting, provides critical timber to keep our sawmills running, and raises money for mental health programs in the midst of our state’s ongoing fiscal crisis,” Murkowski said. “This is a widely supported, common sense solution that will deliver real econ
