NSRC: Funding Deficits Will Hamper Naval Efforts

Thursday, April 18, 2002
The National Ship Repair Coalition (NSRC) released a comprehensive policy report entitled, "Readiness at Risk: Crisis in American Military Maintenance" to draw attention to the funding emergency facing the United States armed forces. The paper is a compilation of statements and presentations that were delivered by various congressional and Administration officials during this year's 2002 National Ship Repair Conference in Washington, DC. "As our military continues to wage war overseas, our Armed Forces both at home and abroad continue to face severe funding deficits in critical readiness accounts, such as Navy ship depot maintenance," said NSRC President Chris Long. "We hope that this document will draw much-needed attention to the fact that our military remains vastly under-funded despite the recent increases provided by President Bush. 'Readiness at Risk' is an instrumental part of our ongoing grassroots campaign supporting America's military men and women." Find the complete report at www.nationalshiprepair.com
