Rep. Young attends Obama bill signing

Posted: Friday, January 30, 2009

JUNEAU - Alaska Congressman Don Young had a front row seat at President Obama's first bill signing.

Obama signed the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act at the White House on Thursday.

Young says he was proud to attend. He was one of only four Republicans in the U.S. House to vote for the labor rights measure, which reverses a 2007 Supreme Court decision by giving workers more time to file pay discrimination lawsuits.

Young says he also used the opportunity to talk to the president about money for Alaska's infrastructure projects in the stimulus bill.
