Scott Statement on the Delay of the Overhaul of the USS Abraham Lincoln

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Newport News, VA

Congressman Robert C. "Bobby" Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement on the Navy's announcement that it will delay the overhaul of the USS Abraham Lincoln due to ongoing budget uncertainty:

"Even weeks before it is to take effect, we are already seeing the harm sequestration will have on the Hampton Roads economy and the readiness of our Navy with the delay of the overhaul of the USS Abraham Lincoln. It is beyond absurd that we were able to find $3.9 trillion to permanently extend most of the Bush-era tax cuts in the fiscal cliff deal without also finding $1 trillion to turn off the sequester. The men and women who serve our nation in uniform deserve better than this. The men and women at Newport News Shipbuilding who build, repair, and maintain the most advanced naval fleet in the world deserve better than this."
