SECNAV CNO Followup Letter
Our Washington Sixth District Representative, Derek Kilmer, just signed on to a letter addressed to the Secretary of the Navy and the Chief of Naval Operations. The letter was initiated by Rep. Rigell of Virginia and is signed by a total of ten members of Congress from districts in Virginia, California, Mississippi, Maine, Hawaii and Washington. The members are asking SECNAV and the CNO for clarification on the Navy’s intentions regarding cancellation of maintenance in the third and fourth quarter in light of the fact that HR 933 provided the Navy funding and flexibility that was not available under the continuing resolution.
