Don Young

KTUU has a hard-hitting story on Don Young:

Alaska Rep. Don Young is pushing legislation to bolster the country's eagle population.

Young is introducing a bill that would fund eagle research and education programs. Money for the programs would come from an existing Commemorative Coin Act.

Meanwhile, Don was part of a very small minority that voted against the House of Representative's large-scale ethics reform package yesterday. I have not seen this reported in any Alaska media today.

I wonder what our ethical governor thinks of her representative's vote?

Don Young: trying to save the eagles AND the lobbyists.

(Thanks to a reader for tipping me to this.)
