Don Young teams with House Democrats to preserve Alaska Native education funding

U.S. House Democrats came to the aid of Congressman Don Young today when they defeated an attempt to slash funding for the Alaska Native Education Equity program. During debate on a 2008 Labor, Health and Education funding bill, fiscal conservatives led by New Jersey Republican Scott Garrett took aim at around $34 million designated for programs designed to boost Alaska Native student achievement.
