Representative Mike Gallagher wants to see funding for three more littoral combat ships provided in the FY19 National Defense Authorization Act. Gallagher argued for the additional Marinette Marine-built freedom-class LCS variants during the House Armed Services Committee’s meeting to review the NDAA Wednesday. Following the meeting, Gallagher released a statement saying “Not only will these ships help fulfill the Navy’s own call for a 355-ship fleet, but they translate into high-skill, high-paying jobs for Northeast Wisconsin workers.”
