ABSTRACT

Navy Littoral Combat Ship (LCS): Background and Issues for Congress [Updated August 18, 2006]   [open pdf - 40KB]

From the Summary: "The Navy's proposed FY2007 budget requests $521 million to procure two Littoral Combat Ships (LCSs). The House-reported version of the FY2007 defense appropriations bill (H.R. 5631) recommends approval of this request. The Senate-reported version recommends funding one LCS in FY2007 and rescinding funding for one of the three LCSs procured in FY2006. For a longer discussion of the LCS program, see CRS [Congressional Research Service] Report RL32109, 'Navy DDG-1000 (DD(X)), CG(X), and LCS Ship Acquisition Programs: Oversight Issues and Options for Congress', by Ronald O'Rourke. This report will be updated as events warrant."
