FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SCA released the following statement on the Navy's Force Structure Assessment:
“The Shipbuilders Council of America (SCA) strongly endorses the Navy’s new Force Structure Assessment that calls for increasing the Fleet size to 355 ships, adding 47 ships to the current goal. A larger fleet will allow the Navy to provide forward presence of ready forces distributed globally to be where it matters, when it matters. And as the new Force Assessment recognizes, in order to begin the work of building a larger fleet, it is imperative Congress end sequestration. The U.S. shipyard industry stands ready to build this Fleet of the future that will ensure the continued flow of international commerce and the security of our nation.” –Matthew Paxton, SCA President.
