Senator David Perdue Comments On “The Future Of Navy” Report

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, comments on “The Future of Navy” report released by U.S. Navy Chief of Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson:

“The Navy is an essential force that we rely on to deter aggression, project power, and maintain freedom of the seas. However, the national debt and Washington’s broken budget process has undermined our ability to fully support our defense priorities. This includes building and maintaining the ships and submarines required to meet the increasing demand of global missions. I share Admiral Richardson’s vision of growth and his concern with the debt. I look forward to working with him through the Armed Services Committee to strengthen our naval forces.”
