Sen. Doug Jones calls for additional ships made in Mobile be included in defense spending
WASHINGTON DC (WPMI) —
Wednesday on the floor of the U.S. Senate, Senator Doug Jones (D-Ala.) spoke out in defense of the approximately 4,000 South Alabama jobs that support production of the U.S. Navy’s Littoral Combat Ships (LCS).
The Senate is currently debating the National Defense Authorization Act, which funds our nation’s defense programs for the coming fiscal year.
Because the current bill includes resources for just one new LCS, Senator Jones has sponsored an amendment to add an additional LCS to the bill. You can watch his entire speech on the Senate Floor below.
