Rep. Young Chosen To Represent Region One On Republican Policy Committee
Washington D.C., January 12, 2011
Alaskan Congressman Don Young has once again been selected to represent Region One on the Republican Policy Committee, representing Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. Congressman Young was also the Region One Representative for the 111th Congress. The Committee serves as the principal forum for the consideration of forward-looking legislative initiatives and as an important means for every member of the Republican Conference to transform sound legislative ideas into meaningful legislation.
“I am very pleased to have been chosen to serve on this committee again,” said Rep. Young. “Under the new Majority, the Republican Policy Committee is going to have a great opportunity to enact the changes the American people want to see from Congress. In the coming months, the 112th Congress will undertake many serious challenges. During this daunting task, I look forward to using my experience from past transitions, my knowledge of the legislative process and my bipartisan and bicameral friendships to help me represent the Western states and advance the ideals of our great country.”
