Why This is a National Concern

  • Security and Economic Issues extend to every inch of the globe.
  • When countries won’t support land-based military operations, we can depend on Naval platforms.
  • Latest CBO estimates suggest the annual SCN Budget should be $21 Billion.Picture2
  • Numbers matter: We need ships to be in multiple locations at once, and that requires more ships.
  • Fewer ships also means increased maintenance on the ones deployed, and longer deployments for sailors.

 

The Navy League Recommends:

  • SCN budget of $21 Billion or greater
  • Funding the Ohio Replacement program outside the SCN account as authorized to avoid budget disruptions and recognize this program as a national asset
