This is "The Navy's Amphibious Warfare Force: Change Under Fiscal Constraints" presentation given at the National Defense Industrial Association's 24th Annual Expeditionary Warfare Conference on October 22, 2019. From the Website Summary: "CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that the Navy's 2020 shipbuilding plan would cost an average of $31 billion per year (in 2019 dollars) over 30 years. Under the plan, the fleet would grow from 290 ships today [October 22, 2019] to the Navy's overall goal of 355 in 2034 but would fall short of the Navy's specific goals for some types of ships. In particular, the Navy's plan would increase the amphibious warfare force from the current 32 ships to a high of 38 ships by 2026. A larger fleet would lead to higher operation and support costs."
