Sequestration May Sink Navy Repairs

Navy Times reports that “federal budget cuts may force the service to defer $80 million of maintenance work on Hawaii-based ships in in the upcoming fiscal year, the Navy’s top uniformed officer said Monday.”

“Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert told retired sailors and business leaders at a Navy League luncheon the maintenance plans were ‘at risk.’”

“Greenert told reporters after his talk the Navy must consider what ships in which ports will be given a higher priority for maintenance. Officials will consider which ships are deploying next and the condition the ships are in as they determine which ships to send to the shipyard.”
