Senator Baldwin supports defense bill including three Marinette built Navy ships

by

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WSAU) -- Wisconsin manufacturers will benefit from a military spending bill that passed the a U.S. Senate committee. Senator Tammy Baldwin says the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, includes funding for three Littoral Combat Ships. Those warships are built at Marinette Marine, and support about 2,000 jobs and over 90 separate supply companies.

The House of Representatives has already passed a similar plan supporting two new Littoral Combat Ships. The Senate version calls for three ships. The proposal now goes back to the House Armed Services Committee for consideration.
