2/25-2/28/2015: Representative Don Young – Cosponsored Legislation

Playing catch up after a conference. Here are three combined Congress.gov alerts for Rep. Don Young:

February 28, 2015

There has been activity on bills associated with Representative Don Young.

Bills cosponsored:

  • H.R. 999 – ROV In-Depth Examination Act (recreational off-highway vehicles)
  • H.R. 1086 – To direct the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration to issue or revise regulations with respect to the medical certification of certain small aircraft pilots, and for other purposes.
  • H.R. 631 – EACH Act (Original Title – To amend section 5000A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide an additional religious exemption from the individual health coverage mandate, and for other purposes.
    • H.R. 1062 – To amend the Pilot’s Bill of Rights to facilitate appeals and to apply to other certificates issued by the Federal Aviation Administration, to require the revision of the third class medical certification regulations issued by the Federal Aviation Administration, and for other purposes.

    • H.R. 540 – FAIR Act (Original Title – To restore the integrity of the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and for other purposes. I’m usually suspicious of legislation with cute titles, but the introduced text of the legislation SEEMS like a legitimate effort to set a higher bar to law enforcement seizing a person’s assets – a worthwhile reform to me. If you disagree, explain why in comments.

    There has been activity on bills associated with Representative Don Young.

    Bills cosponsored:

    • H.R. 1028 -To provide for the implementation of the negotiated property division regarding Former Fort Wingate Depot Activity in McKinley County, New Mexico, and for other purposes.
    • H.R. 452 – Student Testing Improvement and Accountability Act
    • H.Con.Res. 17 – Supporting the Local Radio Freedom Act
    • H.R. 1029 – EPA Science Advisory Board Reform Act of 2015
    • H.R. 1030 – Secret Science Reform Act of 2015 (Original Title: To prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency from proposing, finalizing, or disseminating regulations or assessments based upon science that is not transparent or reproducible. – Another cute title, apparently issued to prevent the casual person from knowing this is about the EPA. How the House is choosing to define transparent and reproducible science is in the introduced text. If this is a good definition, it should be extended to every federal agency including the Defense Department and its contractors. If  not, it should get vetoed. I’d really like to see the requirements in the bill contrasted with what the science community believes to be transparent and reproducible.)
