Congressman J. Randy Forbes (VA-04), Chairman of the House Armed Services Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, released the following statement on the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) and its importance to the U.S. Navy:

“We have heard for the past twelve years about the importance of the LCS to our future Navy, including the unique missions it will perform and its ability to operate in the world’s shallow waters where our blue water Fleet cannot normally traverse. Although this platform has had its share of development difficulties, I believe it has a necessary role to play in the future Fleet and I look forward to reviewing the Navy’s 30 Year Shipbuilding Plan over the coming year to ensure the plan adequately supports the entirety of shipbuilding requirements.”
