Senator Hassan Statement on 2017 Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Economic Impact Report

WASHINGTON – Senator Maggie Hassan released the following statement today on the Seacoast Shipyard Association’s 2017 Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Economic Impact Report

“The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard is critical to our economic vitality on the Seacoast and integral to our national security, and we must ensure that the Shipyard has the consistent and reliable resources it needs. As part of those efforts, I supported the latest bipartisan government funding bill, which provided resources to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard and took a step forward in returning to a more dependable appropriations process. I will continue working to ensure that the hard-working men and women of the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard have the consistent support they need – as well as the surrounding businesses that are impacted by their work – so that they can continue to thrive for years to come.”
