JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - U.S. Rep. Don Young has been sworn in to serve his 22nd term in Congress.

Young, who is the longest-serving Republican in the U.S. House, missed the start of the new Congress last Tuesday following the death of his brother. He took his oath of office on Monday and said he takes great pride in serving the people of Alaska.

Young is Alaska’s lone representative in the House. He will serve on the House Natural Resources and Transportation and Infrastructure committees.
