ANCHORAGE, Alaska - U.S. Rep. Don Young has introduced a bill aimed at studying the potential for an Arctic deepwater port.

The measure is a companion bill to one introduced in December by U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

Young, a fellow Alaska Republican, says the measure will provide for a two-year study to determine strategic capabilities for an Arctic port and a favorable location.

Young says the United States has the opportunity to address the prospects of future industry and can use changing Arctic conditions to its advantage.

This legislation has been referred to the House Armed Services Committee.
