House Passes Spending Bill; Alaska Benefits

The US House passed a massive spending package on Thursday that contains hundreds of millions of dollars for Alaska. The omnibus combines 6 spending bills including military construction, transportation, and education, and costs $447 billion.  Alaska’s Representative Don Young voted against it with all the House Republicans.  But Young says the package does send a lot of money to his home state.
