The following is the June 29, 2017 revision to the Fiscal Year 2018 Trump Administration budget submission. The revision includes a shift in funds in the Navy budget to pay for a second Littoral Combat Ship.
From the Document:
This amendment would reduce the overall account total for Other Procurement, Navy by $375 million. This reduction would partially offset a corresponding increase to the Shipbuilding and Conversion, Navy account in order to provide for an additional Littoral Combat Ship in FY 2018. This total offset is derived from within the account by: 1) reducing $325 million in funding for an aircraft carrier reactor core, which is not needed in FY 2018, and will not impact the overall schedule for making the carrier available for operations; 2) reducing $40 million in funding for dock landing ship modernization that is available due to recently identified opportunities to save on contract costs; and 3) reducing $10 million in funding for the SPQ-9B radar that is available due to program under execution.
