Young discusses controversial earmark situation with APRN

After the House vote, Young spoke further about the Coconut Road earmark dispute with APRN’s Joel Southern and Alaska reporter Robert Dillon. Since the controversy flared up, Young and his staff have been compiling documents to explain who requested and supported the funding earmark for a study on a Coconut Road link to I-75. He contends that it was aimed at relieving congestion on nearby roadways and providing a much-needed hurricane evacuation route.
