Pappas issues statement on Portsmouth Naval Shipyard economic impact report

By Staff | Sep 16, 2023

U.S. Rep. Chris Pappas (NH-01) released the following statement on the release of the annual Portsmouth Naval Shipyard economic impact report.

“For over 200 years, the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard has led the way as an indispensable resource for servicing our nuclear submarine fleet and ensuring our nation’s global combat readiness,” said Congressman Pappas. “This year’s report shows once again the Shipyard is not just a key pillar of our national security, but an economic driver for our state and communities. As a member of the Public Shipyard Caucus, I am committed to supporting our shipyard and the dedicated men and women who work hard every day to advance its mission.”

In 2022 Pappas helped launch the bipartisan Public Shipyard Caucus. The Caucus was founded to support the nation’s four public shipyards – Norfolk Naval Shipyard, Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility, and Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility – which are responsible for repairing and retrofitting the U.S. Navy’s aircraft carriers and submarines. The Public Shipyard Caucus is the only congressional caucus focused exclusively on the nation’s public shipyards and serves as a venue to discuss public shipyard issues, increase stakeholder support for public shipyards, and raise awareness of their importance to Congress.
