Washington, D.C. – Congressman J. Randy Forbes (VA-04), Chairman of the House Armed Services Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, will chair a hearing on the “Department of the Navy 2017 Budget Request and Seapower and Projection Forces” on Thursday, February 25, 2016 at 2:00 PM.

“The President’s budget has presented a false choice between capacity and capability, which is forcing our Navy into an untenable position that undermines the service’s ability to meet our national security requirements,” Congressman Forbes said. “These choices will determine whether American Seapower remains dominant in an increasingly dangerous world.”
