Congressman Don Young refused an award from The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) this past week that would have honored his work for animals in 2010. While local animal shelters do excellent work by providing homes for neglected and homeless animals, HSUS promotes anti-hunting and anti-trapping campaigns. To read more, click here.
Congressman Young introduced H.R. 1220, which would transform the USCG Cutter STORIS, a decommissioned Coast Guard cutter, into a Museum and Maritime Education Center in Juneau. The USCG Storis was commissioned in 1942 and is the oldest cutter in the United States Coast Guard. The USCG Storis was mainly used to patrol the Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea.
